This article attempts to tie together geopolitical phenomenon that are usually not brought into causal relationships:
- the decline of respect for science and the rise of fundamentalism
- the decline of the nation-state’s ability to control its economic policy relative to international banks
- the use of identity politics to control rebellious populations
All of these phenomena are strategies by the U.S. to overcome resistance to its global domination through destabilization. This does not suggest that the U.S. is successful. It is only to say that chaos does not always mean no one is driving!
