al, the creation of nation states came with great empires that dominated the world. Every generation has its dominant empire which determines politics, commerce and business, science and technology, social trends, religious worship and more.
On the occasion of remembering the September 11, 2001 attacks on the Twin Towers in New York and the Pentagon in Washington DC by hijackers who rammed planes into the installations, sparking off a wild goose chase against the perpetrators, has the world learnt to cope and how far is the end?
From time immemorial, the creation of nation states came with great empires that dominated the world. Every generation has its dominant empire which determines politics, commerce and business, science and technology, social trends, religious worship and more. The world today is evolving into a global system controlled from one capital or closed knit capitals.
The above system is taking form by assimilating or sidestepping existing sovereign states and setting up alternative structures. For that to happen, radical events have to take place, by design, so as to justify why the world needs one centre of command and not power centres scattered in numerous capitals of the world. The “super state” now taking form is the greatest form of authoritarianism that will ever be witnessed in the world.
The end game objective is world domination. The architects, operating at the highest of political, diplomatic and military levels with the support of religious influencers, celebrities, media and multinationals, fuel regime change wherever they find uncooperative local leaderships. Sovereign regimes are the front line targets because they are the authority holding together nation states as we know them.
As it was in pre-colonial times when imperialists sent forth religious evangelists, merchants and charity organizations to clear the way for them, in this era the dominators work with civil society organisations through which they channel aid to stooges to undermine local state set-ups.
That “soft power” is supplemented with more radical means, the most pronounced of which is terrorism. Terrorism works to overwhelm the security mechanisms of sovereign of countries and makes governance a quagmire. All the failed states one can name in the world today have been brought to their knees by high level subversion paving way for interventionist domination.
After disorganising and decomposing such states into failed status, they impose policies that overturn the citizen’s compact and enforce an entirely new order.
The governments that are imposed to fill the vacuum and hold the place for “dominators” to eventually fill, are isolated from the people. In effect, they cannot hold things together on their own; therefore, the countries are much less able to operate as complete entities as it was.
Either the “invaders” stay “forever” and effectively take over all aspects of those countries or they depart and leave them to crumble, which would lead to the same effect-giving way to unseen but extremely powerful forces to take over.
The same forces that are mostly operating in the Arab world are spreading their reach fast. Europe is a major target, where mass immigration from bombed out shells of countries gave cover to terrorist sympathisers to sneak in and establish cells now giving Western intelligence and security agencies hell. And while security risks are at all time high, the cultural framework and set-up of indigenous societies is decomposing at an alarming rate. This is the globalist agenda being marketed covertly and overtly.
The United States (US) with President Donald Trump is pushing against these forces through his rather eccentric policies which seek to empower sovereign states to take charge of their own affairs as it has always been, hence the “Make America Great Again” maxim.
While globalists are human beings like others populating the world, they believe that they are superior to others and deserve the right to determine the course of world destiny. Some experts posit that the globalists are forging a modern version of the old Roman Empire which ruled the world in medieval times before it plummeted to oblivion.
Terrorism, which fuels radical social changes, is by far the most potent and handy tool being put to use. It works by instilling a great sense of fear which drives citizens to desperation and willingness to trade their independence for survival. They virtually plead for “someone” else to come and rescue them.
Hence, such groups as the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF), with their doubtful agenda, cannot survive on their own. They operate as vassal cells for higher interests. They are kept funded and pushed on by ulterior forces indirectly competing with sovereign governments.
It is vital for anybody involved in the fight against terrorism to deeply understand its causes and motivations.
