Matthew Ehret breaks down American history in the context of the current geopolitical two step involving Russia and China, contrasting the Belt and Road initiative with the relatively poor infrastructure within the US.
This somewhat binary analysis is helpful to dispel some of the myths around good guys versus bad guys, e.g. Andrew Jackson who was a much more compromised figure than is often understood.
An Introduction to Eurasian Manifest Destiny (The Great Game this Week) by Matthew Ehret
In this week’s episode of The Great Game on Rogue News, Matt and V unpack some deep structure American history starting with the question: why did Andrew Jackson kill the bank of the United States? How did Jackson’s program unleash a perverse form of Manifest Destiny that carried out genocide against natives, spread black slavery, empowered a foreign-directed fifth column in the USA and justify a parasitic pax americana throughout the 20th century which several martyred presidents resisted?
And this is really what’s important; history like geopolitics today is far more complex and nuanced. Bad guys do good and good guys do bad.
Critical Thinking’s final analysis suggests money controls the world, including the geopolitical two step. Yes, Western governments are more under the control of the global banking system. However, neither China nor Russia can act independently but have to proceed within a global political economy created, fuelled and controlled by money.
Consequently, it is not sufficient to view/analyse the current transition through the lens of contemporary geopolitics (or even the history of the Great Game).
We are witnessing changes that go way beyond geopolitics to the fundamentals of life and living. Centralised power exercised through control of money is giving way to the power of the individual, the family and communities (groups).
We need to think more in terms of how we should live rather than rely on centralised power, seemingly benign or otherwise. No-one is coming to our rescue and relying on current systems of government to navigate this transition is futile.
However, pre-money and today we have a methodology to live in accordance with universal law. What has inhibited its use hitherto is the lack of technology to extend the methodology beyond the family or small groups. The last 20 years or so have opened up the possibility to do so.
