Demographic projections continue to favor the growth of Islam over China, Russia and the United States.
The three powers deal with Muslims by dividing them up into three groups; those that are part of their systems, those that are outside but allied to them, e.g. Syria for Russia, Saudi Arabia for the United States and Pakistan for China, and those that are its separatist or terrorist enemies.
Instead of coming to terms with a global struggle with Islam, each power largely concentrates on fighting Muslim separatist or terrorist groups that destabilize its sphere of influence while arming, funding and supporting those Muslim separatist and terrorist groups that destabilize rival powers.
Muslim terrorists operate in all three powers, but are dismissed as unrepresentative aberrations. That is wishful thinking, but empires are shaped to fight their own kind. Islam, is something different. It is an ideology and post-ideological powers like Americans who believe in very little are poorly adapted to fighting it. Instead many of their elites secretly admire its dedication.
Islam emerged by taking advantage of the slow collapse of the Roman Empire. Its reemergence as a world power once again coincides with the fall of empires. Like a hyena trotting after prey, Islam is a cultural carrion eater consuming the skills and knowledge of superior civilizations to sustain its warlordism whose religious fanaticism eventually decay into decadent dynasties.
——————————————————— Americas rulers cling to scraps of global leftist ideology that isolate them from their own people.
Unfortunately there may be even less to unify the United States after the left erodes everything from free speech to the free market. Uncontrolled immigration has imported masses of hostile populations everywhere from Nashville to Minneapolis radically changing quintessentially American cultures and replacing them with balkanized minority coalitions with little in common except a mutual hostility against the United States.
The collapse of the Pax Americana under Obama has freed up Russia and China to begin campaigns of territorial expansionism. Obama’s failure to deter Russia in Ukraine will encourage China to use force as a solution to territorial disputes in the South China Sea. These events will wake the world from the dream of the Pax Americana in which American power kept the peace in much of the developed world.
None of this has to happen, but it will if the same bad decisions continue to be made
.If eight years of Obama are topped by eight years of Hillary; this is where we will end up.
If multilateralism continues to be the great obsession of the elites, if bad economics and bad strategy continue destroying nations, if the developed world continues de-industrializing to save the planet while empowering energy tyrannies, then the post-American world will be upon us.
