, within the panorama of topics we could cover here today, it seems fitting to delve into the changing geopolitical landscape in the world again as ‘survival issues’ continue to accelerate, making for the perception of ‘strange bedfellows’ if you are a delusional and desperate American elitist. Big picture thinkers are well aware ‘profound changes’ and new alliances are currently being cemented that will materially alter the balance of power in the world as the years progress, with the rise of the BRIC’s and Eurasian trading blocs at center, not to mention cessation movements in Europe
themselves. (i.e. consider how quickly people’s attitudes
are changing.) Of course you would never know this if simply looking at things from an American’s perspective, with increasing global tension boosting dollar($) demand and US asset prices, resurrecting thoughts of Jim Morrison’s haunting words (foretelling verse) from The End
– ‘the west is the best’.
