The Geopolitical Tectonic Shift: Part Two, The Overview

It’s been a long time since my last blog post. Let’s just call it writer’s block and leave it at that..

Our subject remains the overarching and foundational process and context that allows us to make some sense of the ongoing chaos and insanity in the Western world, which seems to be accelerating. We are calling it the Geopolitical Tectonic Shift (hereinafter GTS). The term is gaining traction as can be seen by writers beginning to use the word “tectonic” loosely, usually without context.

To briefly review, we’re talking about the more and more obvious phenomenon of the West sinking and the East rising. The backstory is the 500 year old European Empire, starting with the Portuguese Captain Magellan rounding the Cape of Good Hope and then navigating the Strait of Malacca to wind up in the South China Sea. Meanwhile Spain – and Portugal in Brazil – were beginning to colonize what is now Latin America.

After the Pope followed up with a diplomatic division of the world between Spain and Portugal, the other Europeans got into the act, with the English, the French and the Dutch creating their own colonial empires, culminating in the Scramble for Africa in the latter part of the 19th Century.

Meanwhile, the maritime prowess and might of the Brits – and the establishment of the East India Company, backed by the wealth of The City of London – began to transcend the others, resulting in the British Empire. That empire in turn gave way to the primacy of the Americans following WWI, which proved that the UK was utterly dependent on its anglophone colonies – and the US – for its continued security. WWII sealed the deal and the world became divided between the US and the Soviet Union, enmeshed in what was called the Cold War.

It was all possible because of superior maritime as well as military technology, not to mention a lust for wealth and power. This naturally followed centuries of internecine European blood letting – war spurs technological advances. Another ingredient was the re-transmission of the ancient Greek and Roman texts back from the Muslims, who had safeguarded that knowledge.

Science, along with its application, technology, was aborning. This process reached its zenith in the 19th Century. Feudalism had given way to the Industrial Age, marked by the ascendancy of the Middle Class, to be followed by the Information Age, well underway by the latter half of the 20th Century, and the eventual rule by the Financial Class in a totalitarian, oligarchical dictatorship.

A financialized economy, aside from being a gigantic Ponzi scheme, is a chimera of data driven sleight of hand while AI is threatening to get out of human control < >. Such an economy produces nothing real or useful and can only survive through unprecedented mind control (aka brainwashing), the only thing remaining that the US is really good at. But this is a doomed Empire. At this point it won’t take much of a breeze to blow the house of cards away.

As a side note, it´s interesting to observe that the Sun rises in the East and sets in the West. One could say that things are returning to their natural order. Another way to look at it is that the Empire of Lies (h/t Vladimir Putin) – consisting of USrael and its vassal states – is choking on its own vomit while the East is prioritizing truth, pragmatism, sanity and a sense of simple human decency. That’s the essence of the multipolar world being carefully and patiently constructed by Russia and China with the participation of the RoW (rest of the world, together amounting to 85%).

If the axiom is GTS, then we must begin to look at the corollaries, manifestations or symptoms. It’s quite a list. In the upcoming set of blog posts, I´m going to break these down into the main categories that you can see featured in the Daily Posts on this site. The four principal ones are geopolitics (especially the proxy war in Ukraine), US politics, the Covid Clusterfuck and the now hundred year old history of the colonization of Palestine.

I will also address the secondary themes of post-modernism and its perverse expressions – from political correctness to radical feminism, from the Woke Cult to the LBGTXYZ clusterfuck, from gender dysphoria to the Climate clusterfuck.

Finally, I plan to discuss the only way out of the mess, the spiritual awakening that must follow the end of the Dark Age – if the criminally insane Ruling Class doesn’t turn the biosphere into burnt radioactive toast first. Wish me luck and please feel free to disseminate these posts widely if you think it’s worth it.

It’s quite a lot, granted, but why mess around.

    I love how you wrote:

    Such a polite way to describe pirates and privateers.

    What you’re talking about – to state it more bluntly – are people who took to the sea in ships to conduct, not ‘trade’, but raiding forays. Then, dragged the loot home to Lisbon, Amsterdam, London, and Paris to build their grand ‘civilization’. That was the European modus operandi then, and it’s their mindset to this day. They don’t know any other way. They don’t really engage in fair trade, as that puts them at a disadvantage. (Imagine sailing to the Orient with a cargo of scratchy wool and sheep’s bellies thinking to trade it for silks and spices….)

    Now that Russia and China have set out to restore the ancient trade routes which criss-crossed the Eurasian contiinent back in the day, goods will get to market much quicker … which is good for trade, n’est-ce pas? Ah! but there’s the rub! All those maritime choke points that the bluewater Navies control will lose their leverage. And, extending the belt-and-road trade routes to Africa will suck the power out of the colonial franc , etc.

    So, in a way, this tectonic shift really is existential for the Western way of life — not because the Trading Nations are trying to cut the Raiding Nations out of the trade loop, but because they (the traiding nations) are trying to get them (the raiding nations) to settle down and lead a peaceful life. Which is anathema for people who have for hundreds of years been roaming the waves wild and free, taking what they want.

    I think the pirates are going to fight to preserve their ‘freedom’.

    And, the peaceful citizens of the world need to learn to see them and their dissembling ways for what they really are.

    But, it’s going to get complicated.
