Trump Pulls US Further into Isolation

Trump's worldview for US
On the matter of the US leaving UNESCO, Artfix.Daily reminds us:
In 1945, UNESCO was created in order to respond to the firm belief of its member nations, forged by two world wars in less than a generation, that political and economic agreements are not enough to build a lasting peace. Peace must be established on the basis of humanity’s moral and intellectual solidarity. \
 Irina Bokova made the point:
"The United States is a founding member of UNESCO," Bokova explained to reporters. "The whole idea that you can build peace through education, science, culture and communication is basically an American idea."
American idea or not, it is now for the rest of us to take this idea forward and leave American to reflect on the nature of moral and intellectual solidarity. Or maybe we will see some vehement voices raised by US representatives of the worlds of:
Science and
attempting to pull their nation back from the brink of the gulf of nationalistic phillistinism that Trump and his supporters so eagerly plunge towards.
