In These New Times

A new paradigm for a post-imperial world

Archive for the ‘Multipolar world’ Category

The New World Order is not turning out as planned. Instead of all power emanating from London and Washington, new power centres are emerging to the South and East: a new global equilibrium raises the possibility of a new post-imperial age of peace and equality between nations.

EU and China sign a Mandate of Trade Heaven

Posted by seumasach on April 12, 2019

Another historic development as the EU reaffirms its independence from one-time overlord, the USA. Escobar, however, goes too far in asserting that Europe is China’s priority rather than the US but Eurasian integration certainly should certainly impel Washington towards integrating itself into the unfolding multipolar reality. The barriers to this stem from the inertia of US elites still harbouring hegemonist dreams when even a new Monroe doctrine seems beyond them.

Sparks did fly in Brussels, but in the end the European Union and China managed to come up with an important joint statement at their summit this week, signed by Chinese Premier Li Keqiang, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker and head of the European Council, Donald Tusk.

Working with China is more beneficial than fighting it

It appears the political and security elites in the United States are preparing for an OK Corral-type showdown with China.

The new Great Game on the Roof of the World

Posted by seumasach on December 20, 2018

As with Mahathir in Malaysia so, now with Imran Khan: both are driving hard bargains with China and the Belt and Road Initiative is by no means one-way traffic. A genuine multipolarity is emerging with strategic autonomy as the watchword as all players seek to benefit from the greatest development project in human history.

On top of the graceful Baltit Fort, overlooking the Hunza Valley’s Shangri-La-style splendor, it’s impossible not to feel dizzy at the view: an overwhelming collision of millennia of geology and centuries of history.
