The War College has published this paper about US influence in a 'post primacy' age.

Any thoughts from the folks at ATS?

To me it seems to advocate for more of the same, just a bit harder. Doing what we've been doing, but harder, and that is considered irrational behavior by some.

Far from insisting, as the U.S. government does officially, that Iran and North Korea pose as nuclear threats, the document instead insists they are considered problematic for the expansion of the “U.S.-led order.”

This stood out - pretty accurate. Still wading through it.

Nothing will change; this study will only embolden those in power to continue doing the only thing they know how to do -- rule by fear and force.

America is like an injured lioness at the moment and injured predators defend themselves, they claw and bite and fight until their dying breath. The article itself says that,

The solution proposed to protect U.S. power in this new “post-primacy” environment is, however, more of the same: more surveillance, more propaganda (“strategic manipulation of perceptions”) and more military expansionism.

We will continue doing that which is causing us to collapse: pursue economic and military interests with complete disregard for the well being of others, increasing control through information control, surveillance and disinformation at a global scale; we as a populace will continue electing NWO puppets who will continue to siphon the power away from the people and place it in the hands of the few, as has been going on.

Nothing is going to change because no one anywhere near power knows how to do anything else, any other way. It will take a generation to die out before any meaningful changes can begin to be made.

I would definitely not count on anything you said being the case actually....

Long story short, there's a very large quiet smart and disaffected group of people throughout the entire first world who are very unhappy with the direction things are heading... Individually and in thousands of small groups with varying degrees of cohesion these people are methodically working out the systems technologies and strategies which will slowly, at first, allow more and more people to increasingly "drop out" of the current economic etc system in ways which don't open you up to criminal prosecution or limit your ability to earn enough legitimate money etc to buy stuff, travel, pay taxes on property etc, and otherwise participate in mainstream society...

What it WILL DO though is allow this ever increasing number of dropouts and their progressively shrinking ties to the economic, legal, infrastructure, and other key components of the system which have previously been mandatory!

These people are also for the most part drivers of innovation, trailblazers, entrepreneurs, and highly educated in various STEM etc fields.

Guess what happens when enough of those types of people drop out/opt out of all but a bare minimum of interaction with mainstream business, finance, and thus virtually zero out their tax burdens?

That's right... the already creaky cumbersome ill maintained and barely functional beast of a current system gets starved out and dies!

It's all but inevitable and unstoppable at this point... The PTB let too many genies out of too many bottles and have sown the seeds of their own demise in the process
