Mike Whitney at The Unz Review   writes:

The liberal world order, which lasted from the end of World War 2 until today, is rapidly collapsing. The center of gravity is shifting from west to east where China and India are experiencing explosive growth and where a revitalized Russia has restored its former stature as a credible global superpower. These developments, coupled with America’s imperial overreach and chronic economic stagnation, have severely hampered US ability to shape events or to successfully pursue its own strategic objectives. As Washington’s grip on global affairs continues to loosen and more countries reject the western development model, the current order will progressively weaken clearing the way for a multipolar world badly in need of a new security architecture. Western elites, who are unable to accept this new dynamic, continue to issue frenzied statements expressing their fear of a future in which the United States no longer dictates global policy.

This is precisely inline with our THESIS 2018: THE NEW WORLD ORDER where we argue the world is shifting from a Uni-Polar world controlled by US Policy to a Multi-Polar world.

This is a rather lengthy article but worth the read if not for anything else than four quotes describing underling drivers towards a New World Order:

  1. Chairman Wolfgang Ischinger, at the 2019 Munich Security Conference,
  2. Richard Haass, the President of the prestigious Council on Foreign Relations,
  3. Russian President Vladimir Putin presentation at the 70th session of the UN General Assembly in New York on September 28, 2015,
  4. Former national security advisor to Jimmy Carter, Zbigniew Brzezinski's article he wrote in 2016 for the American Interest titled “Toward a Global Realignment”.

The world has changed and power had shifted eastward, and that the only path forward for America is cooperation, accommodation, integration and partnership. Tragically, there is no base of support for these ideas on Capital Hill, the White House or among the U.S. foreign policy establishment. The entire political class and their allies in the media unanimously support a policy of belligerence, confrontation and war.

The United States will not prevail in a confrontation with Russia and China any more than it will be able to turn back the clock to the post war era when America, the Superpower, reigned supreme.

Confrontation will only accelerate the pace of US decline and the final collapse of the liberal world order.
