Empires Fall, Large and Small

Both the large ones

The main architect of Washington’s plan to rule the world has abandoned the scheme and called for the forging of ties with Russia and China. While Zbigniew Brzezinski’s article in The American Interest titled “Toward a Global Realignment” has largely been ignored by the media, it shows that powerful members of the policymaking establishment no longer believe that Washington will prevail in its quest to extend US hegemony across the Middle East and Asia. Brzezinski, who was the main proponent of this idea and who drew up the blueprint for imperial expansion in his 1997 book The Grand Chessboard: American Primacy and Its Geostrategic Imperatives, has done an about-face and called for a dramatic revising of the strategy. Here’s an excerpt from the article in the AI:

“As its era of global dominance ends, the United States needs to take the lead in realigning the global power architecture.

“Five basic verities regarding the emerging redistribution of global political power and the violent political awakening in the Middle East are signaling the coming of a new global realignment.

“The first of these verities is that the United States is still the world’s politically, economically, and militarily most powerful entity but, given complex geopolitical shifts in regional balances, it is no longer the globally imperial power.” (Toward a Global Realignment, Zbigniew Brzezinski, The American Interest)

Repeat: The US is “no longer the globally imperial power.”

…and the small ones

In response to my “wonder[ing] what would happen if other drivers stopped and surrounded the cop [who’s pulled over a serf] rather than speeding past,” David Maharaj, our correspondent in Canada, writes,

A surround a cop incident took place two days ago in the area where we currently reside. My wife and myself were out jogging in the evening when we stumbled upon that very scene. I immediately joined the fray, of course… In this case two goons were manhandling someone who appeared inebriated. A crowd gathered and was questioning the tactics of the goons as I arrived. One cop became extremely agitated, while the other, I kid you not, called for backup.

Yee-haw! Put these thugs on the defensive, and keep them there! By the way, I confirmed with Mr. Maharaj that Canada arms its cops just as the US does, and he responded that they are not only armed but dangerous.

Within minutes, two other gang members

Nice touch!

arrived with sirens blasting. We were then told to disperse immediately, or names would be taken.

Ooooohhh. Names would be taken! The State’s ultimate threat!

Who knows whether Mr. Maharaj and company saved a life here? Meanwhile, Our Rulers consider us the enemy. It’s time we serfs realize that and stick together, helping and protecting one another from these unspeakable savages.

When governments abandon the rule of law in favour of the rule of power, bad things happen. The respect goes… then the money… then the legitimacy.

Rule by fear is still possible, but tyrannies are not known for being wealthy, respected, and secure places to live in. And the technology to remove the fear continues to accelerate…

The future of Christian Government is not to imitate the Pagan Roman, or the Muslims, or the Secularist States. Instead, we are to establish quite a large number of independent government, trading freely with each other, with a well-armed citizenry, and a single legal code for friends and foes alike (without special breaks to Favoured Minorities or the Righteous Believers).

We should observe the failures, the fake gods… to insure that we don’t follow their footsteps.
