Meglomania is an understatement in economics, since the goal "to establish your own empire," may well be a pervasive part of human nature.
My argument on the NWO is that any concept of it exist in the mind, with paper tentacles actuating puppet like motions. Bush is not only
"President," because it says so everywhere we look in the media, but he is the "President," in his own mind. In much the same way to define any
"New World Order," is to assume within oneself an understanding of it, and even leadership in it on a theoretical basis.
Once theory is an established functionalism, one coordinates a "praxis," in other words a process where theory and practice converge.
For a background on theory and practice, we know our politicians present a theory in the campaigns, and they may even look to that process as what
actually "raises a government." If you think of it, when a person "runs for Senator," that person IS the Senator until elected otherwise.
With the NWO or New World Order, a substantial basis of theory indicates competing visions of what transitional outcomes would arise out of it. Many
previous empires in history have attempted to "conquer the world." Perhaps one of the most successful empires was Rome, and most of its achievments
were built upon an infrastructure, roads and aquaducts. One may dispense with the Gladiators, slavery, cruelty, and everything else. Those things were
a drag upon order, a counter to the great infrastructures.
If one could just keep the roads and aquaducts in a civilization, one could paint a picture without the unfortunately paired associations of those
drags on life.
Get it straight, most nothing in a eutopian concept matters but water, transportation, and cultural extensions in an improving ambiance. Unfortunately
economists seem to get it wrong repeatedly, mixing in unnecessary negatives. A New World Order that is viable would have infrastructural concepts
only, not demolition experiments, and "padding the bill."
I do not think most concepts of any NWO, are valuable, without extensive pruning of many functionalist categories. Otherwise it is more of the same
crippling historical dilemmas, and none of the sustained payoffs that make it a worthy concept.
One could go past the pathologies of Meglomania, and into a process of sound reasoning on a sustained basis. In that way we would actually attain an
internal order, which transcends all the senseless infrastructures outside of simple water and roads. We would mostly become philosophers.
