Analysts of supranational organizations realize that the penultimate goal of these parliamentary committees is to ensure all dissenting member states stifle their concerns, yielding to the pressure of influential member nations upholding liberal narratives. Whichever global organization is currently in the spotlight, be it the UN, WTO, or any other multinational or mini-lateral entity, the message is clear: those who resist will be labeled as threats to democracy.
Many are perplexed when they try and wrap their heads around the motivations of great power politics. But once you learn the modus operandi of the international foreign policy playwrights, and the less often analyzed energy and tradecraft, of foreign policy, then you start to read between the lines of the Wilsonian platitudes and economic entanglements known as economic interdependence.
Behind every direct confrontation is an entire world of logistics and the underpinnings of soft power. This realization is not limited to scholars or diplomats. Anyone who has played a strategy game intuits this after getting through the tutorial.
Economic coercion is an age-old tactic. Since the fall of man and the Tower of Babel, nations have forged trade relationships with their neighbors, nations themselves existed, sometimes driven by opportunity and at others through coercion. On the grand scale it is called Economic Interdependence theory.
The following are living definitions of this theory between the world's two multipoles–America and China:
“As President Clinton has… made clear, and as the U.S. Navy helps ensure, America is and will remain an Asia-Pacific power…Our role there is vital, from the stabilizing effects of our diplomatic and military presence, to, the galvanizing impact of our commercial ties”
Here we see the influence of sea power ensuring, by military coercion, “the galvanizing impact of our commercial ties”
Here it is reiterated again:
“The vitality of the international economic system rests upon international political order. Political order depends, in great measure, on military security. And economic stability reduces the likelihood of dangerous conflict.”
In the ‘Rules Based International Order’ (RBIO) the end goal of economic interdependence is “peace through strength” or, in other words, trade deals enforced at gunpoint.
Terms like “open markets for American goods, greater political openness, market-access agreements, Middle East peace” are all employed by liberal rhetoricians as literary devices to insure parliamentary control.
“A policy of containment would divide our Asian allies and encourage China to withdraw into narrow nationalism and militarism. Our interests are served by an Asia that is coming together, not splitting apart-and by a China that is neither threatening nor threatened.”
God forbid the Sino-Soviet East discover nationalism–lest they be awoken to the fact that parliament agents might be stringing them along as the world's manufacturing base, or as an easy candidate to point their media arm at as the free world's enemy.
The preceding excerpts were found in a speech written by Madeleine Albright shortly after the signing of NAFTA entitled: “American Principle and Purpose in East Asia”
Green merchants set the scene
While the global trade structure was evolving, a narrative emerged: the urgent shift to green energy to prevent imminent environmental collapse. This singular imperative effectively transitioned the world's energy base away from crude oil and natural gas and rekindled the mad dash for African heavy metals.
The state has been subsidizing automakers and other green snake oil ventures via tax breaks; public-private firms have been championed, the foremost being the soft power defense contractor Tesla and by extension Elon's other ventures: SpaceX, Starlink, and X (formerly Twitter).
With the clever advent of carbon tariffs (CBAM) rolling out to the Eurozone and the proposed power/fiber-optic cable link, as well as the recently announced East Med pipeline involving Egypt, threading Israel to Cyprus, and from Cyprus to Greece. With funding already secured by the EU the Eurozone is preparing itself to be shackled to this new Eurasian energy grid to charge their Chinese electric vehicles and scooters that have recently flooded the market.
The interchange between Rabbi Shmuley and Elon Musk showcases the fact that Tesla has led the charge in shifting the power balance in the Gulf States as we transition towards this Green Great Leap Forward. The web of satellites we call Starlink spreading over the World Island, along with the defense funding channeled to companies like Anduril and Raytheon, suggests that the epicenter of great power conflict lies between the mulling hands of the Silicon Valley technocracy.
Although Liberal and Realist theory may have you believe that trade policy and foreign policy are separate disciplines, history bears out instead that soft power infrastructure and the logistics therein can make or break hard power offensives. In other words, non-military infrastructure plays a pivotal role in determining the success of military actions.
The spectacle of SpaceX launching satellites for the Chilean government as a joint aerospace operation between SpaceX and ImageSat International (an Israeli firm) and later Israeli Defense shooting down two reconnaissance satellites above Azerbaijan showcase the latest iteration of Man and Technics. Seeing Cyber Caesar retract his scepter from the Ukrainian Black Sea operation is the power play of a private military general.
The crest in which all nations will stream
Here tentatively lies the vestibule of West Asia. Autonomous mini-lateral coalitions pioneered by British mercantilism have all been preparing for this moment. Disraeli's hour of decision is upon us. His facile obsession with England's relations with "Hindoostan" have begotten centuries of commercial diplomacy. With India as the last stop of the Abraham Accords, the India Middle East-Europe Corridor–or IMEC–we find a lattice-work of the most contentious extra-terrestrial entanglement the world has ever seen. In the international theater, thinking nationally while the play is in session can equip you with eyes that see the unseen.
Labels like “Autocracy” and “Tyranny” are hurled at the other side of the unipole; and where these two poles meet is nothing but an empire of flack. Liberal Reform Jews have been demanding ‘Middle East Peace’ with America as chief arbiter between its Arab neighbors. Religious Revisionist Jews find themselves at the rubicon of Nationalism and Internationalism. They believe they can straddle the line between a Jewish supremacist nation state and the democratic city on the hill, which acts as the duties collector for either side of the world island.
Likud has been driven into the invisible grasp of their Ashkenazi kin across the pond. And Bibi's surrendering approval for a Palestinian state–his Hail Mary as a means to rid himself from either side of the ire.
Israel is now the ostensible gatekeeper of both the INSTC and IMEC. Seeing as how China's BRI has a direct hand involved in developing Israeli infrastructure, they have thoroughly inserted themselves as the tie that binds either side of the coalescing poles. Both must stream through the hands of Jerusalem.
