i think you nailed it in your last sentence. the age of american dominance is coming to a close as the other major powers realize that they can call
some of the shots, too. as more of our "real work" jobs go overseas, we become more and more of the "service economy" you mentioned, putting us in
a weaker position than we've ever been. americans are allergic to hard work, yet still want to live like we're top dog.
add to that the natural fact of globalization and America looks like its slipping by the wayside. I think things like the internet and seeing pictures
of the earth from space have forever changed our world and our species. now that we are confronted with the fact that we're "all in this together"
here on Spaceship Earth, the march toward a one-state is inevitable.
that being said, the corporate powers of the world are working behind the scenes to ensure that that global union benefits them the most. hopefully
these mideast revolutions are organic, and not fully infiltrated and organized by TPTB, that way we already have a force opposed to the Corporate
Government which has insinuated itself into the global control structure. I can't recall the name of the organization, but there is a movement that
meets annually in an attempt to organize a Global People's Republic in response to the NWO Corporate Government.
I think that the human race becoming more unified is a good thing at the end of the day. the road to get there may be hard to travel, though. even the
People will be reluctant to let go of nationalism and sovereignty, though an ideal Global People's Republic would benefit the commoners. the problem
is getting that unified republic to be "ideal." global power structures open the door for global-scale corruption and oppression. there is no way to
ensure that only "good" people are elected or installed in a world government, so there will always be the lurking specter of greed and lust for
power. It certainly has its drawbacks and susceptibilities, but either way, the march toward globalization is on and there no stopping it.
If you're interested in the themes of global government and totalitarianism, I'm sure you've read 1984 and Brave New World. You might want to give
We by Yevgeny Zamyatin a read. It's a Russian novel and if you can find the Mirra Ginsburg translation, that one's the best. It has a lot in common
with 1984 as far as plot goes, but predates it by a couple decades and deals with the idea of Man's primal nature existing in constant conflict with
our desire to impose order and structure and justice and equality on the chaotic world we live in!
