The East Is Red - And So Is the West

This is the most unequivocal statement from the New World Order itself on its performed merits,  aims and means that I have seen, so far: "The political philosopher John Rawls argued that political institutions should be conceived behind a "veil of ignorance …. Fortunately, such an order is in place already."
Henceforth, we can calmly substitute "conspiracy theory" for "Conspiracy practice" as for the New World Order.

G. JOHN IKENBERRY is Albert G. Milbank Professor of Politics and International Affairs at Princeton University .
The following is an excerpt from his [1] "The Rise of China and the Future of the West” published in the “Foreign Affairs” Jan/Febr. 2008, organ of the US Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), called the “invisible government of the USA”, which has [2] nominated all US presidential candidates, Secretaries of State,  Secretaries of the Treasury and Defence  since WW2,  the most prominent voice of Rothschild/Rockefeller´s [3] New World Order.

The  message is: Future world peace and prosperity is only possible, if we hand all not already usurped power (and our souls) over the New World Order´s corporate, undemocratic World Governance: "The more the Western order binds together capitalist democratic states in deeply rooted institutions; the more open, consensual, and rule-based it is; and the more widely spread its benefits, the more likely it will be that rising powers can and will secure their interests through integration and accommodation rather than through war."
Which is to say: If we want peace and prosperity we have to make ourselves the vassals and clients of the corporate New World Order. When king Mammon governs we just want a slight thing in return: Your national, cultural and religious identity.Through our rules and institutions we will impose on you a narrow framework for your lives!! In times of old this was called selling your soul to the Devil!!!  Others call it the "Peer Gynt Syndrome" (Ibsen).

Many Bush administration officials have been outright hostile to the multilateral, rule-based system that the United States has shaped and led. Such hostility is said by the CFR to be foolish and dangerous

"The first thing the United States must do is reestablish itself as the foremost supporter of the global system of governance that underpins the Western order. Doing so will first of all facilitate the kind of collective problem solving that makes all countries better off.

The strategic understanding behind both NATO and Washington's East Asian alliances is that the United States will work with its allies to provide security and bring them in on decisions over the use of force, and U.S. allies, in return, will operate within the U.S.-led Western order. 

One of the forces behind globalization and one of real rulers of the World: Multinational Exxon came into existence after the splitting of Rockefeller´s Standard Oil in 1911.The Rothschild partners Barclays and J.P. Morgan, [4] State Street Corp. are big [5] shareholders.

These alliances are part of a wider Western institutional architecture that allows states to do business with one another.
On the economic front, this would include building on the agreements and architecture of the WTO

The United States and Europe must find room at the table not only for China but also for countries such as Brazil, India, and South Africa. A Goldman Sachs report on the so-called BRICs (Brazil, Russia, India, and China) noted that by 2050 these countries' economies could together be larger than those of the original G-6 countries (Germany, France, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom, and the United States) combined

 The rise of China will undoubtedly be one of the great dramas of the twenty-first century. China's extraordinary economic growth and active diplomacy are already transforming East Asia, and future decades will see even greater increases in Chinese power and influence. Will China overthrow the existing order or become a part of it?

In terms of economic weight, for example, China will surpass the United States as the largest state in the global system sometime around 2020. The key thing for U.S. leaders to remember is that it may be possible for China to overtake the United States alone, but it is much less likely that China will ever manage to overtake the Western order. If China intends to rise up and challenge the existing order, it has a much more daunting task than simply confronting the United States.

 Not everybody wants chairman Mao and his "The East is Red" or his "Little Red Book" into our company. Mao was illuminist (like all communists) and the greatest mass murderer this world has ever seen. Todays China is still based on illuminism - as is the CFR and the products it boasts of having produced, [6] e.g.the EU.  The Little Red Book had a tremendous impact on the West in the 1970´es. And this lore has not been forgotten.[6]

Some observers believe that the American era is coming to an end, as the Western-oriented world order is replaced by one increasingly dominated by the East. The result of these developments, they predict, will be tension, distrust, and conflict.

And as the world's largest country emerges not from within but outside the established post-World War II international order, it is a drama that will end with the grand ascendance of China and the onset of an Asian-centered world order.

 China is well on its way to becoming a formidable global power. The size of its economy has quadrupled since the launch of market reforms in the late 1970s and, by some estimates, will double again over the next decade. It has become one of the world's major manufacturing centers and consumes roughly a third of the global supply of iron, steel, and coal. It has accumulated massive foreign reserves, worth more than $1 trillion at the end of 2006.

China's military spending has increased at an inflation-adjusted rate of over 18 percent a year, and its diplomacy has extended its reach not just in Asia but also in Africa, Latin America, and the Middle East.– heralding a profound shift in the distribution of global power.
These moments are fraught with danger. When the power of a challenger state grows and the power of the leading state weakens, a strategic rivalry ensues, and conflict — perhaps leading to war — becomes likely.

According to Director [7] Mark Leonard of the "European Council on Foreign Relations", Beijing hopes to use a "China Dream" to challenge the US' military power. Note the stars here are inverted [8] pentagrams - the Seal of Baphomet/Lucifer!!

But the rise of China does not have to trigger a wrenching hegemonic transition. China does not just face the United States; it faces a Western-centered system that is open, integrated, and rule-based, with wide and deep political foundations.  Today's Western order, in short, is hard to overturn and easy to join.

This unusually durable and expansive order is itself the product of farsighted U.S. leadership. After World War II, the United States did not simply establish itself as the leading world power. It led in the creation of universal institutions that not only invited global membership but also brought democracies and market societies closer together. It built an order that facilitated the participation and integration of both established great powers and newly independent states. Today, China can gain full access to and thrive within this system. And if it does, China will rise, but the Western order — if managed properly — will live on.

The United States' "unipolar moment" will inevitably end. If the defining struggle of the twenty-first century is between China and the United States, China will have the advantage. If the defining struggle is between China and a revived Western system, the West will triumph.

But even more decisive is the character of the international order itself -- for it is the nature of the international order that shapes a rising state's choice between challenging that order and integrating into it.

It was the explicit intention of the Western order's architects in the 1940s to make that order integrative and expansive. Before the Cold War split the world into competing camps, Franklin Roosevelt sought to create a one-world system .

Over the next half century, the United States used the system of rules and institutions it had built to good effect. West-Germany was bound to its democratic neighbours through the Coal- and Steel Community (and later the  the European Community) and to the United States through the Atlantic Security pact.The Bretton Woods meeting in 1944 laid down the monetary and trade rules that facilitated the opening and subsequent flourishing of the world. Additional agreements between the United States, Western Europe and Japan solidified the open multilateral  character of the post-war economy.

After the onset of the Cold War, the Marshall Plan in Europe and the 1951 security pact between the United States and Japan further integrated the defeated Axis powers into the Western order. In the final days of the Cold War, this system once again proved remarkably successful. As the Soviet Union declined, the Western order offered a set of rules and institutions that provided Soviet leaders with both reassurances and points of access — effectively encouraging them to become a part of the system. After the Cold War, the Western order once again managed the integration of a new wave of countries, this time from the formerly communist world.
 

Three particular features of the  Western order have been critical to this success and longevity. 1. Unlike the imperial systems of the past, the Western order is built around rules and norms of nondiscrimination and market openness, creating conditions for rising states to advance their expanding economic and political goals within it.
2.
The coalition-based character of its leadership. Past orders have tended to be dominated by one state.
3.
The postwar Western order has an unusually dense, encompassing, and broadly endorsed system of rules and institutions..

China, in short, is increasingly working within, rather than outside of, the Western order
and China is well aware that no major state can modernize without integrating into the globalized capitalist system; if a country wants to be a world power, it has no choice but to join the World Trade Organization (WTO). The road to global power, in effect, runs through the Western order and its multilateral economic institutions.


The more security and economic relations are multilateral and all-encompassing, the more the global system retains its coherence

 What kind of international order would the United States like to see in place when it is less powerful? Bringing emerging countries into the governance of the international order will give it new life.

So, the final question is: What do you want  - capitalistic communism or communist capitalism?
