Yes, there are some very simple, yet very stark and fundamental, doctrinal differences between the Obama Regime and President Trump’s Administration when it comes to overall foreign policy and America’s place in the world at large. We had the Obama Doctrine, which was essentially one of conciliation, self-deprecation, and one long string of apologies to the world at large. Now we have the Trump Doctrine, which seems to one of standing strong, and alone if needs be, and warning our enemies and opponents that they’ll be sorry if they cross America.
Obviously, the differences between the two doctrines is stark. They’re almost polar opposites and quite antithetical to each other. Hence, one coming in immediately upon the other’s being over is glaring to see and jarring to experience. That, however, is not the seminal point of this article.
Please realize that the title of this post, “Doctrinal Differences,” is quite deliberate. This is not a purely political or geopolitical difference. It’s more of a difference in sincerely held beliefs, of particular and differing faiths in what is the right way forward. quite literally, it is a sectarian schism.
That’s very important to realize and internalize because there’s another, far harsher and more potentially dangerous way to describe doctrinal differences – heresy. And any of us who study today’s world and/or history know what happens to heretics…
