Now that former National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski has openly declared that the United States of America should abandon their quest for global hegemony, American leadership should take heed and amend their foreign policy objectives accordingly. In his article entitled “Towards a Global Realignment” Mr Brzezinski has declared that the United States should join hands with Russia and China, and India, to govern and establish order throughout the world.
While this declaration has no doubt invited consternation from America’s Neo-Conservatives, who blood-thirstily crave American dominance in all affairs globally, it is nonetheless a positive and healthy development for the following reasons:
(1) America has failed miserably in foreign intervention, resulting in mass wanton death and destruction throughout the world with useless wars and clandestine paramilitary attacks and proxy wars using NATO, Saudi Arabia, Israel, and even Al Qaeda and ISIS on sovereign nations;
(2) it is bankrupting the USA;
(3) it has made the US much more hated than at any other time in history, thus making America and its citizenry even less safe;
(4) it has ruined the value of our currency;
(5) we have diverted precious resources from improving domestic infrastructure towards foreign expenditures and the military industrial complex;
(6) it has undermined American moral authority;
(7) it has forced other formerly compliant and cooperative nations to group together for survival, and built an anti-American bloc in nearly every corner of the planet, thus effectively thwarting American influence everywhere, leaving the US isolated;
(8) it is un-American to pursue Empire;
(9) it has affected US currency by forcing other nations to pursue the gold standard, rather than the petro-dollar;
(10) it leaves all of our well-entrenched and loyal allies much weaker and more vulnerable to foreign intervention and attack.
It is vitally important that the US recognize that Russian President Vladimir Putin and China’s Xi Jinping have consistently referred to America as their “partners,” while the US has referred to them as “strategic competitors” and other such inherently loaded insults, which already starts the ball of negativity rolling.
The US should remain as a member of the International Monetary Fund and World Bank, but should also place the other foot into the BRICS Bank and AIIB Paradigm in order to enjoy and share in both worlds economically and culturally.
If America truly believes in its “exceptionalism,” then it should, with supreme confidence, enter the world as an active participant, and not as a spoiled “bully in the school yard.”
Only in this manner can America help to guarantee its current living standards, improve its economic engine of growth and progress, avoid unnecessary and destructive war and conflict, and move forward to a better future.
