WESTERN POWER JUNKIES ARE LOSING THEIR FIX
(August 29, 2020)
The elites of the West have held the levers of patrician power for generations. During this time they have been in the position to dominate economically and therefore militarily. However, their era of being judge, jury and executioner is coming to an end.
The rise of China will eventually quarantine these elites and they will no longer be able to act as the disciplinarians of the world. They will no longer wield a stick to beat others into submission.
However the power-junkies of the western world are not going to relinquish their self-awarded right of unquestioned unipolar rule without a fight.
Western elites will wage war against China to the bitter end.
They see their ability to monitor, judge and punish the rest of the world waning and know that their wannabe status as unipolar hegemon is retreating ever further from their grasp.
The fervent need among western elites full spectrum dominance fixed upon post 9/11 meant gaining complete oversight, the ability to monitor every communications network on the planet and to respond with whatever means they deemed necessary to eliminate those actors they decided might act against their interests.
The continuing rise of China is an insurmountable barrier to achieving the goal of full spectrum dominance by western elites, primarily those in the USA. This policy was agreed as the only way the USA could be assured of remaining safe from attack post 9/11. However, China will not be stopped and will remain an insurmountable barrier to the western elites in achieving their goal. Hence the war now being fought.
Any recognition that the war being waged by the USA and its allies against China is unwinnable will not stop these elites continuing to wage war against China however.
It appears these elites are willing to countenance global catastrophe, poverty, and the ultimate miseries humanity can face through their actions rather than acknowledge their inability to maintain control and gracefully hand over the reins of influence to China.
If these elites take the course above they will ultimately be quarantined. The elites of the USA in particular will be quarantined along with their most compliant ally, the UK and the constant threat of their aggression will finally be ended.
The reason for the war the West is against China, Russia and others is its decline.
It is not that the West is under any military threat by other nations either by covert or overt means. The threat is economic. But of course the West's great patrician power has always been predicated upon its economic might.
China is going to steadily reduce that economic might and thus automatically reduce the West's patrician grip and ability to cajole, bribe, threaten, attack and invade.
The power-junkies of the West are in imminent danger of losing their fix and some of them even believe they are the only valid guardians of all that's good in the world... so they will strike like a terminally wounded animal at any "enemies" they perceive to be out there and bringing their ultimate demise ever nearer.
We should not be too surprised that there is only one permissible truth allowable now and that those taking an alternate view are regarded as dupes at best and perhaps even traitors, “Russian assets” and so forth.
The West conceives itself to be at war. Whether the conditions truly exist for a state of war, announced or not (until now unannounced) I would contend that the elites concerned agreed that the West was indeed at war. Initially after 9/11 the war was against anyone who even hinted a viewpoint that was not fully supportive of the USA. You'll recall the phrase about "if you're not with us you're against us".
The mentality at work where only one "truth" is permissible (in a state of war) comes directly from that premise... if you're not our friend and ally then you are our enemy.
To the power-junkies of the western world the war being waged by them is all-consuming for them and an unavoidable consequence of the existential threat they face. Their era is ending and with it the very core of their status as planetary governors. This is a fate to them worse than death.
The money-minds, the neocon-emperors, the masters of the universe and all the serried ranks of power-junkies across the West are in desperation mode. They see the fix they feel they cannot live without being withdrawn from them. They are warring now in a vain attempt to escape the torment of the cold turkey torture they are now facing.
They will fail.
