Almost 100 years after President Calvin Coolidge declared, 'the business of America is business', the Obama administration has established a new label for the empire which says, 'the business of America is the stifling of business'. Because sure enough, it has been the domestic and foreign polices of the U.S. which have not only brought about Western economic decline, but they have also helped the East rise to the top and stand on the precipice of seizing control over the global financial system.
Undoubtedly, the President before Barack Obama had a great deal to do with setting the table for the U.S. and Europe's economic demise thanks to endless wars, the devaluing of the dollar, and using sanctions to interrupt the free flow of trade between Europe, the Middle East, and Asia. And this of course has led both Russia and China to create new monetary and financial infrastructures that opened the door for the world to leave the dollar and Washington's hegemony, and to seek to return to a system that recognizes and respects each nation's own sovereign and individual currencies.
What a novel concept! Using trade instead of arms to bring two diametrically opposed cultures and countries together.
Indeed, most of the turmoil that exists today in the world is not the result of ideologically charged governments wanting to impose their will, religion, or tyranny upon others, but mostly they have done so at the urging, behest, funding, and extortion by the United States to keep the world in perpetual chaos.
But all this is changing. In the past three years China, Russia, a BRICS coalition, and certain contingencies in the Middle East (Iran and Syria) have broken away from U.S. hegemony and are forging strong alliances that are first and foremost about trade, and secondly about military protections against Washington's overt and covert methods of intimidation and violent overthrow. And from the infrastructures they have and are creating, the world is now ready to enter in with hands raised high to seek a real solution to their economic problems that kept them under bondage within the singular reserve currency model.
No one can predict exactly when the U.S. will lose control over the necessary 51% of global financial hegemony, but with the British voting two weeks ago to leave the European Union, and the expected outcome of this to eventually bring an end to the technocratically dominated European oligarchy, it is not out of the realm of belief to think that once these sovereign nations are free from this technocratic bondage, they will rush into China's arms and away from Western foreign policies that have strangled their economies into deflation and recession.
The people's and government's of the world are not only demanding change, but very soon they will have it. The only question that remains is will they succumb to years of economic, social, political, and cultural hell before they do what is right and end the cycle of reliance upon the U.S. dictatorship, or will they be like Britain, who is expected to go through a short-term amount of economic hardship but is already fomenting a plan to come out of it by realizing early that the future lies with associations in the East, and through the cutting of the cord of Washington domination and their economic destruction's instilled through foreign policies and dollar hegemony.
