The big fly in Bannon’s theoretical musings is the pratical reality of people and the world. In Bannon’s world Putin is a killer, so what? A killer with his finger on the nuclear trigger is not just so what.

The world cannot afford to have a theoretical bull go rummaging about a nuclear china chop with some pie in the sky notion that he may be on to something really cool. Life on earth as we know it is not his private experimental lab for social deconstruction.
