I. The West and International Politics:
Of the first thought, on the International Politics, which I intend to explore as a part of my PhD, my argument is that, the field (International Politics) is of primarily concern to only ‘the West’. Here there is a further division of who exactly in the ‘west’?
 The ‘Co-operative’ States: These are liberalism-minded states,of Scandinavia, Mediterranean, Northern and Central states. These prefer to approach International Politics and Relations as a co-operative business area, through dialogues and peaceful interactions. Note: this does not mean they lack the military power, nah, they just prefer diplomacy to military alternatives.
 Only three (or if we count the ‘Little Italy’, we might say four) of the oldest states, suffering from what I refer to as the ‘Persistent Imperial Cultures‘ approach IP/IR with militarism, in the forefront, believing to gain the relative gains you have to crush the ‘opponent’ rather than conduct civilised dialogue. These states are UK (the biggest threat to the International Politics/System/Security), France and at the present, United States (but the latter, US, can change, as the PIC is not fully ingrained in her institutions and mindsets.
In short, only ‘the West’ preoccupies themselves with IP/IR (rather than what everyone else, who focus primarily in International (Political) Economics since the age of Silk Road). And within two camps, these differ in how they approach the field, and with consequences.
If one was in a position to advice the non-western states, especially, the rising China, Turkey, reviving Russia, India and the rest, one will simply advice;
1- never accept the game!
In short, do not be aggravated into playing their game, and all one can do is, build up defensive military capabilities, regional alliances and focus on internal affairs.
2- Do not fall into the ‘cold war trap’, that Soviet fell into, by accepting the role of ‘a challenger’. Do not compete, just go about conducting your affairs peacefully and ignore all ‘hectic over-reaction’ from the west.
II. The Economics
How to revive our economies?
Only one way seems open. Force all national companies and businesses, to;
(a) operate all their functions and activities locally, that within the country, and not outsourced.
(b) those who refuse, will be ‘sanctioned’; meaning, they will be banned from operating any businesses within the borders, or owning any businesses or assets of any kind. In short, they will be cut of completely from having anything to do with the state.
(c) those who accept will be supported, and however, will face strict executive pays watchdogs and scrutiny.
What does this mean?
It means only employing local national not foreigners, and creating only local employments, and controlling excessive pays and bonuses, and others.
