Eurasia & the Epochal Decline in US Global Power

Both liberal and conservative political elites in the New York–Washington corridor of power have been on top of the world for so long that they can’t remember how they got there, writes Alfred McCoy.

{While you could have read about almost all of this in the American media, sometimes in great detail, nobody in the U.S. has tried to connect such transcontinental dots to uncover their deeper significance. U.S. leaders have visibly not done much better and there’s a reason for this. As I explain in my recent book, To Govern the Globe, both liberal and conservative political elites in the New York–Washington corridor of power have been on top of the world for so long that they can’t remember how they got there.}

In other words. Distraction has now moved into another phase. They're now not only attempting to distract us from their evil capitalist agendas abroad for profits, but also how they're losing ground on their world dominance.

{Three generations later, however, as populism, nationalism and anti-globalism roiled public discourse, surprisingly few in Washington bothered to defend their world order in a meaningful way. And fewer of them still had any real grasp of the geopolitics — that slippery mix of armaments, occupied lands, subordinated rulers, and logistics — that has been every imperial leader’s essential toolkit for the effective exercise of global power.}

{First, the U.S. must avoid the loss of its strategic European “perch on the Western periphery” of Eurasia. Next, it must block the rise of “an assertive single entity” across the continent’s massive “middle space” of Central Asia. And finally, it must prevent “the expulsion of America from its offshore bases” along the Pacific littoral.}

As I've occasionally theorize on here, all prehistoric roads lead to back to the Little City of London. The US has been an arm to it as it's subservient enforcer towards global domination. Our immediate transformation into world colonialism began virtually as soon as our nation declared its freedom. I seriously can't see this as merely a coincidence. It came across the ocean with the "founding fathers". Our own natives became the first targets. To break away from this structure as the nationalist attempted would bring in an era of global unrest forcing their current enemies into protective measures of high alert of potential war.

{In a power play not seen since Stalin and Mao joined forces in the 1950s, the alliance between Putin’s raw military force and Xi’s relentless economic pressure may indeed slowly be pulling Europe away from America. Complicating the U.S. position, Britain’s exit from the European Union cost Washington its most forceful advocate inside Brussels’ labyrinthine corridors of power.}
