Friday's Questions: How Can We Overcome the Imperial Drive to War?

While the prospect of a June summit between Presidents Putin and Biden is becoming more likely, such a meeting alone will not guarantee peace, unless the underlying axioms embedded in the idea of a "Rules-Based Order" are rejected.  This idea is a modern iteration of the geopolitical outlook imposed by the British Empire, at the end of the 19th century, which led to two World Wars in the last century and is pushing humanity to the brink of a possible nuclear war today.   It is now possible to achieve a New Paradigm in relations, based on  the concept that, through cooperation among the great powers, peace can emerge from a mutual commitment to sovereign economic development -- but must be preceded by a rejection of the arbitrary imposition of a corporatist banker's Great Reset or Green New Deal.

    The nations in Europe had taken up the Lincoln model – and were constructing more railways, canals, and machines for the generation of energy and the processing of food. Cooperation between these sovereign + prosperous nations threatened the hegemony of the British led Western financial oligarchy – so divide & conquer arrangements were made to get these nations to fight each other !
