The Fall of the Unipolar Order
From the anti-NATO marches in Munich on Feb. 18 and the unprecedented rally in Washington one day later (cf. SAS 8/23), to the many demonstrations that took place throughout Europe on the following weekend, a powerful anti-war movement is building in the transatlantic world. The numbers were larger or smaller depending on the location, but what characterized all of the protests was the openness of the vast majority of the participants to consider ideas that they were not willing to entertain before. That was reflected in the novelty that “left” and “right” are uniting around a common goal of stopping nuclear war.
The rally of up to 50,000 people in Berlin on Feb. 25 was the most remarkable, including because Germany is the key country in Europe for NATO’s war against Russia and potentially China (cf. below).
At the same time, and perfectly legitimately so, the rejection of the West’s “unipolar world” is growing in the Global South. More and more countries are seeking alternative forums to ensure mutual development and cooperation, including the BRICS, the SCO (Shanghai Cooperation Organization) and various regional organizations. Faced with ultimatums, provocations and sanctions from the West, the world’s largest physical economy by far – China – is moving ever closer to Russia, and so is India.
The Russians, according to Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, now refer to this grouping of countries as the “global majority”, as opposed to the “global coalition” that the U.S. President and State Department claim stand firmly on their side.
What is driving the dynamic for war is the breakdown crisis of the entire trans-Atlantic financial system. The attempt to save it by implementing a war economy, or by more “green bubbles” under the guise of protecting the planet, is doomed to fail. A growing number of people are coming to recognize that what is needed is the full “LaRouche solution”, and nothing less.
