And did you read the report at the beginning of my op? By 2030 Asia will wield more global power than Europe and the US combined. You can try and use all that weaponry – but against whom? To what end? And don’t you think that other nations are capable of defending their resources? It’s ridiculous to claim that is the only way when you opened your post by saying that I ‘was right’.
Those days are finished for us and, I would argue, that as a consequence of this, the days of the city in the western world are also over. They may yet serve a purpose for the mass manufacturers of the East but they no longer serve any purpose for us. They should be regarded as a quaint, old fashioned notion, that have had their day.....their continued existence in the west serving only as a hindrance to economic and social progress.
