alex said:Interesting, I predict the exact opposite: a return to the age of Nationalism. Several Eu countries are close to social implosion (much to the surprise of the idiots who rule us).
It takes generations to create patriotism, and that is something that the EU planners never even considered. You can build a castle of cards using spit as glue, but don't expect it to stand for long.
The EU will be a threat to US ECONOMICAL interests as soon as most of the world starts using the Euro as an international currency: as soon as that happens (and it is already happening), you will have to start controlling your budget deficit (instead of just printing more billions - thus devalueing your, and everyone else's money).
Diplomatically, the EU is a midget because we lack social, ethnic and (believe it or not) cultural unity.
In the future, there will be regional economic trade areas, but your theories about feudalism, Marx and Engels are complete nonsense.
The only reason why North Korea wasn't invaded is because Bush is an idiot who doesn't know when to attack whom. He should have attacked Iran or Saudi Arabia - definitely not Iraq. As to North Korea, the only guys that give a f*ck about those bastards are the Chinese, the Japs and the South Koreans. Let the Chinese die for the mess they created! What does that have to do with America?
Sorry, but the neo-nationalism you speak of does not in any way contradict what I'm saying. With various nations splitting along tribal/ethnic/religious lines, such as has happened in Easten Europe, Iraq, Afghanistan for examples, control by the neo-feudalists will be that much easier. You must not be familiar with neo-liberalism and its third position offshoots in support of reactionary decentralisation on the surface.
The world is headed towards a new 1929, world economic failure. Out of the fall of the USAEmpire will come a world much like Europe/environs after the fall of Rome. It will be on a higher level of exploitation, with the entire world being involved this time.
As for my "theories" about Marx, Engels, et cetera: Marx predicted a return to feudalism if socialism did not come about in the world. Since there has been no socialism, only various forms of Fabianism posing as socialism, the writing is on the wall regarding the return to feudalism. The regional trade areas of which you speak are only one manifestation of same feudalism.
Bush didn't attack NKorea for one reason. That reason was that he was threatened with nuclear annihilation if he even made one step towards NK. Iraq bent over backwards to accomodate the United(States)Nations, look what happened to them. China and India are now trying to bring about the capitalism necessary for development in that part of the world, kudos to them.
As for attacking Iran and SArabia, those two have been the most faithful lapdogs of the USA ever. Iran was given weapons by the USA all the time the USA was supposedly helping Iraq. Ever heard of Iran-Contra? The House of Saudi is nothing but a decaying monarchy kept in power by the USA to act as a proxy when they couldn't get away with getting their Zionist lapdog to do their dirty work for them. Iran was certainly good in getting the shitites stirred up in Iraq. Now that former nation is going to be ruled by shitite warlords in srvice to the USA.
