Carlson Says U.S. System ‘Collapsing In Real Time’ Amid Global Order Shift


OPINION: This article may contain commentary which reflects the author's opinion.

Former Fox News star Tucker Carlson, who has begun traveling the world to interview leaders for his “Tucker on X” platform, painted a bleak picture regarding the current state of affairs in the United States.

Specifically, Carlson said he believes it is fairly obvious to him that the American “system is collapsing in real time” and that the rest of the U.S.-led post-World War II global order is shifting dramatically, but most Americans can’t see it because the legacy media refuse to report on it.

In an interview with Swiss outlet Die Weltwoche, a German-language weekly considered center-right politically, Carlson said he has “become convinced over the past several years — particularly since the war in Ukraine began — that the world is changing much more quickly than most Americans understand.”

The Western Journal added:


The interview, published Thursday, came as Carlson came back from an interview with the president of the United Arab Emirates, Mohamed bin Zayed. It’s one of a number of eclectic interviews with social and political figures he’s done since relaunching his show, so to speak, on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter.

As most of the media world knows, Carlson was unceremoniously ousted by Fox News in April for reasons that have not — and, indeed, may never be — publicly explained. He’s still under contract with Fox, just not appearing on the network.

However, now that he’s been freed from Fox, it’s not like he’s become a loose cannon, Carlson told the Swiss outlet: “If anything, I’ve expressed my views less,” he said.

“I haven’t done many straight-to-camera scripts where I write the script and give my opinion. I’ve done what I’ve wanted to do for a long time but couldn’t, which is get on an airplane and go see the rest of the world. I couldn’t because I had a daily show I had to do,” Carlson told the outlet.

Carlson then explained his strategy of traveling the world to get interviews with leaders of other countries so he can bring Americans up to speed with the rapid changes occurring around the globe as America declines under President Joe Biden.

“What we, in this country, refer to as the ‘Post-War Order’ — the institutions set up in the wake of World War II to keep the world peaceful and prosperous and the United States at the top of the pyramid, and that would include the dominance of the dollar, the SWIFT system, NATO — all of that appears to me to be crumbling,” he continued.

“That’s my view of it. I’ve wanted to travel and see if that is, in fact, happening — and it is,” he said, adding that the vast majority of Americans don’t know or see it because the country’s legacy corporate media isn’t interested in informing them.

“I’ve worked at a lot of news organizations in the United States, and they’re all the same,” said Carlson, who has had stints at CNN, MSNBC, ABC, and PBS before joining Fox News.


“They’re all afraid of getting sued or yelled at or fired or humiliated. But interestingly, none of them are very afraid of getting things wrong. That’s not a concern. They’re not worried about accuracy as much as they’re worried about being unfashionable or saying something forbidden. What they’re really worried about is telling the truth,” he said.

“They’re all fearful people who are making more than they probably should be, and they’re worried about losing their jobs. Occasionally, you’ll find a courageous person, but they are very, very, very rare. Very rare.”

Earlier this month, during an interview with Barstool Sports owner David Portnoy on X,  where the two asked each other questions, Carlson delved into his departure from Fox News.

He also said he was not a fan of the network’s decision not to feature Republican presidential contender and former President Donald Trump on the network even as he is likely to be the party’s nominee.

The network, he said, was “not really covering the news anymore.”
