Dec 28, 2012 Comments Off on The Post-Western World without the United States as the Economic Superpower iResist
Excerpted from Canada Free Press:
Christian and American customs around the country are under attack by atheist minorities and groups with anti-American agendas. Institutions, freedoms, and traditions that we had previously taken for granted are threatened. The church, turning left and complicit, clamoring for new membership and revenues, has chosen to remain silent in defense of life, liberty and Americanism. Conservative groups have abandoned their principles in order to be popular and liked. The future of our country in general is irrelevant to most who selfishly live in the bubble of the moment.
The majority of Americans are either asleep, lulled into a false sense of temporary well-being and abundance, or have resigned themselves to their fate because it is hard to have spring with one flower. Those who are keenly aware of negative transformations and have seen this movie play before are shaking their heads in disbelief and speaking in the wind like mythological Cassandras.
Few seem to worry about future generations, except in empty posturing rhetoric. Lost in egotistical self-indulgence, our collective elected officials continue to make decisions predicated on the Me Generation. The Lost Generation must fend for itself when the time comes.
Since the low-information reality show spectator voters have elected the most “transformational president” in history to a second term of lavish spending and punitive socialist redistribution of wealth, if the U.N. Agenda 21 and the ginned-up class warfare succeed, the thinking Americans will watch powerlessly as the U.S. will no longer be a Constitutional Republic and a superpower, becoming a second rate nation in the dustbin of declined and fallen “empires.”
What will the world be like and what kind of country will America be in the next 15-20 years at the rate of the fast-paced involuntary and hopeless change that is aimed at pushing us “forward” to disaster?
The “unprecedented change” will drive “60 percent of the world’s population to mega-cities by 2030, and competition for food, water, and energy resources could increase the possibilities of violent conflict.” (Frederick Kempe, President and CEO, Atlantic Council)
“The United States must urgently address its domestic economic and political dysfunctions.” The Atlantic Council, a think tank, wrote a 57-page report, “Envisioning 2030: U.S. Leadership in a Post-Western World,” to “help prepare the Obama Administration and its global partners for unprecedented change.”
The report predicts a future of “vast economic and political volatility, environmental catastrophe, and conflicting, inward-looking nationalisms that would be unlike any period that the United States has seen before.” “President Obama will be setting the tone and direction for U.S. policy in a post-Western world.” (Atlantic Council, Executive Summary, p. 5)
As the powers that be are actively and speedily working to affect this outcome, the global order champions “predict” that wealth will shift from west to east. Learning Mandarin may be a good idea – China is recognized in the report as “the most crucial single factor that will shape the international system in 2030.” (Atlantic Council, Executive Summary, p. 7)
Is a post-western world a world without the United States as the economic superpower, benefactor, and military protector of the globe’s ungrateful nations? The 20th century economic guru of the liberal elites, John Maynard Keynes, said in 1937, “…the idea of the future being different from the present is so repugnant to our conventional modes of thought and behavior that we, most of us, offer a great resistance to acting on it in practice.”
The National Intelligence Council discusses in its December 2012 166-page paper, “Global Trends 2030: Alternative Worlds,” the mega trends, game-changers, Black Swans, and potential worlds in the next 15-20 years.
Food, water, and energy sources will become problematic due to growing populations in emerging markets and policies adopted at home that favor expensive green energy, wind, solar, and biofuels, preventing exploration of existing cheaper domestic resources of fossil fueled energy. As one commodity becomes an issue, it will affect the supply and demand of the others. Water needs will grow by a predicted 40 percent.
