The Importance for the USA to Join Hands with the World

America should abandon their quest for global hegemony -- ZBIGNIEW BRZEZINSKI

Now that former National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski has openly declared that the United States of America should abandon their quest for global hegemony, American leadership should take heed and amend their foreign policy objectives accordingly.

ZBIGNIEW BRZEZINSKI

In his article entitled “Towards a Global Realignment” Mr Brzezinski has declared that the United States should join hands with Russia and China, and India, to govern and establish order throughout the world.

While this declaration has no doubt invited consternation from America’s Neo-Conservatives, who blood-thirstily crave American dominance in all affairs globally, it is nonetheless a positive and healthy development for the following reasons:

(1) America has failed miserably in foreign intervention, resulting in mass wanton death and destruction throughout the world with useless wars and clandestine paramilitary attacks and proxy wars using NATO, Saudi Arabia, Israel, and even Al Qaeda and ISIS on sovereign nations;

(2) it is bankrupting the USA;

(3) it has made the US much more hated than at any other time in history, thus making America and its citizenry even less safe;

(4) it has ruined the value of our currency;

(5) we have diverted precious resources from improving domestic infrastructure towards foreign expenditures and the military industrial complex;

(6) it has undermined American moral authority;

(7) it has forced other formerly compliant and cooperative nations to group together for survival, and built an anti-American bloc in nearly every corner of the planet, thus effectively thwarting American influence everywhere, leaving the US isolated;

(8) it is un-American to pursue Empire;

(9) it has affected US currency by forcing other nations to pursue the gold standard, rather than the petro-dollar;

(10) it leaves all of our well-entrenched and loyal allies much weaker and more vulnerable to foreign intervention and attack.

It is vitally important that the US recognize that Russian President Vladimir Putin and China’s Xi Jinping have consistently referred to America as their “partners,” while the US has referred to them as “strategic competitors” and other such inherently loaded insults, which already starts the ball of negativity rolling.

The US should remain as a member of the International Monetary Fund and World bank, but should also place the other foot into the BRICS Bank and AIIB Paradigm in order to enjoy and share in both worlds economically and culturally.

If America truly believes in its “exceptionalism,” then it should, with supreme confidence, enter the world as an active participant, and not as a spoiled “bully in the school yard.”

Only in this manner can America help to guarantee its current living standards, improve its  economic engine of growth and progress, avoid unnecessary and destructive war and conflict, and move forward to a better future.

    He sounds good. So did Obama, remember? He is an old dog and, although it is not impossible that he can learn new tricks, I am not ready to trust or believe him simply because he says some things with which I agree. He has never walked this kind of talk…. so let us wait and see which side this coin lands on before we judge.

    Zbigniew Brzezinski:

    “The youth of the Third World are particularly restless and resentful. The demographic revolution they embody is thus a political time-bomb, as well… Their potential revolutionary spearhead is likely to emerge from among the scores of millions of students concentrated in the often intellectually dubious “tertiary level” educational institutions of developing countries. Depending on the definition of the tertiary educational level, there are currently worldwide between 80 and 130 million “college” students. Typically originating from the socially insecure lower middle class and inflamed by a sense of social outrage, these millions of students are revolutionaries-in-waiting, already semi-mobilized in large congregations, connected by the Internet and pre-positioned for a replay on a larger scale of what transpired years earlier in Mexico City or in Tiananmen Square. Their physical energy and emotional frustration is just waiting to be triggered by a cause, or a faith, or a hatred…

    “[The] major world powers, new and old, also face a novel reality: while the lethality of their military might is greater than ever, their capacity to impose control over the politically awakened masses of the world is at a historic low. To put it bluntly: in earlier times, it was easier to control one million people than to physically kill one million people; today, it is infinitely easier to kill one million people than to control one million people.[1]

    Regardless of what this man is (spawn of satan?) or done (kill a million you’re a god), what he has recognized is that the ‘global awakening’ is a threat to US hegemony. Instead of standing in the way of an idea whose time has come (rather like standing in front of an avalanche), he’s trying to figure out how to make the current populist trend serve the US. Personally I think I’d rather lassoo a tornado, it’d be safer.

    Dear Hillary Supporters,

    What is the alt-right ?

    Hillary is worried about these people?

    This constitutes that huge Trump threat?

    Andrew Breitbart : “They need to marginalize and demonize those that would stand up to their hardball, toxic, and antidemocratic tactics … But it won’t work. Given a fair hearing, given just the slightest exposure — and the American people will rise to the occasion. They see these tactics for what they are.”
