The Unthinkable: The Great Scramble For The West!!!!


Perhaps, these little lines I am penning at the present might well be enough to create my immortality, or ridicule, whatever of the two, I can not stay silent but state what I seem to have stumble upon by accident.

Recently, I have been researching in the ”Rise and Falls of The Great Powers”, for example, examining in details the economic evolution, the technological changes and effect to societies, the arms, the coming into relations with the outsiders and so forth, and throughout all these readings, from the Greco-Roman, The Early Humans, Medieval, Christianity, Islam and so forth, a number of themes seems ‘Constant’ and ever present within all these great stories of the past. Today, few hours after my second work-out of the day (sweat always make me think), I visualised these ‘constants’ side-by-side with the present, and WOW, I was literary blown away, the similarities are scary.

In short, Ladies and Gentlemen, I think we all have been barking the wrong tree, especially with the cries of Neo-Imperialis/Neo-Colonialism of the South by the North, myself included: this does not mean we are actually wrong per se, but rather in strategic outlook, we might be. What the findings seems to indicate is rather that, [are we seating for this, and breathe please?], perhaps, in three generations or so, or perhaps centuries, the west as we know it, will be a big colonised region, by the East this time.

What am I basing my argument upon;

1. the pattern of migration (”the early infiltration”)
2. the economic dependencies of west from the east (the debt)
3. the material dependencies (the comparative advantage)
4. the over capitalisation of the top-slice of the society
(the Marxism-Leninism and the inherent crises of Capitalism; I believe it was this, but they mis-interpreted for their own ideological or perhaps just misunderstood completely)
5. the disillusionment of the masses with the top-slice (the public-political gap, already in play, also known as ”apathy”)
6. the de-martialisation crisis of the west
(more arms, more dependencies on external service providers, and less enthusiastic and martial spirit of our contemporary masses, as the chief of UK armed forces warned)
7. the dominance of the western economies by the east
(the selling off of the west to the east, literally, or known as commonly as the ”buy-outs”, ”capital stimulation” etc)

and others.

In short, we have been for sometime, largely as the result in the absence, conscious or not, on the observational discipline, been living through the early stages of the western colonisation; we are not yet colonised but our great grand children will possibly be!!!!

To observe this trend, I hope this trick might help:

Shut-off your mind from all other things and biases, then focus, by zooming into the western modern history, then go and read of the older histories, and compare.

In front of you, you will visualise how a society began:

How the people become tribes, tribes to communities, communities to many infighting communities, infighting to outfighting communities, outfighting to defensive, defensive to capitulation; and the fact you will see most observable is this, just as in the past as it will be for us in the future, capitulation will not be as a result of the sword, initially, but to debt; we first owe, before they own us, and after they force us into submission with the sword.

Yeap, I hope I am wrong this time!!!!!!
