The end of the “American Empire”

Question from the Internet:

“If future humans were watching “America, 2020” what is one thing you think they should know?”

Future historians will point to “America 2020” as the first obvious signs to herald the collapse of the “American Empire”, similarly how the Roman Empire collapsed around 2000 years ago.

This also symbolizes — while we are also watching how Britain becomes less and less relevant in the world — the end of the overwhelming “Anglo-Saxon influence which has determined most of Human history in recent centuries.

This is no fault of these nations, as so far we all stumbled through history in a completely blind, instinctive manner, following our inherently self-serving, egocentric, exploitative nature. The British Empire and then America showed us what Humanity can achieve through the ruthless, egotistic Human nature we are all born with, that these nations managed to use, utilize most efficiently.

America was not built on anything else but on this all-conquering, insatiable desire to gain selfish profit, to compete with and overcome others, to succeed, and to survive at the expense of others and of Nature.

But in our generation, this process is ending, as Nature’s evolution is now expecting us to transition to a different kind of development, which agrees with nature’s overall direction and fundamental laws.

We are now pushed, pulled by Natural events, and all the crisis situations around us to recognize the global, integral nature of the system we exist in. Whether we like it or not we are forced to start aligning ourselves with evolution’s deterministic, relentless push towards ever-increasing integration between ist diverse parts.

This is what the pandemic and also what the evolving socio-economic crisis shows us.

Thus the “old way”, the prevalent “divide and conquer” policy, partisanship, harmful, self-serving political parties, and the exploitative “raw capitalism” lost its right to exist. As a result everything we have built, all our ideologies, systems fall like houses of cards in the US and all over the world.

Paradoxically though the danger is greatest in the US, as a result of the all-encompassing, sophisticated refined propaganda machinery Americans still think they are all right and they can change their fortunes by electing a different President or Senate, while the whole world is watching them with disbelief.

The impending doom does not mean that those who are still in power or might get into power soon do not have the ability to start devastating interference with the life of others or to start a global war before their inevitable collapse. Thus it is in the interest of all of us to understand what is happening, why it is happening, so we could start the inevitable changes, the transitions towards a globally integrated, mutually cooperating Human society purposefully and methodically before intolerable suffering will force us against our will.

America can also prevent a total, bloody collapse if its people understand why they are declining and they start to use their still available power over the global communication, media and entertainment industry for the new, positive, constructive transition, instead of continuing their negative, totally destructive propaganda, misinformation and brainwashing.

We are all interested in facilitating such purposeful, proactive changes, as in a fully integrated and interdependent world the collapse of one nation — especially as influential as America — can trigger a global collapse none of us can escape, survive.
