Though the tone is neutral, I imagine Brzezinski’s not too happy with his conclusions, given that his consciousness seems to be limited by a concentrated focus on seeing life on planet Earth as merely a geopolitical chess game. I’m reminded of a presceint remark of Vaclav Havel, back when the Berlin Wall fell in 1989 and we all thought that miraculous opening would lead to peace in our time. Havel talked of a new “multipolar world” as opposed to the bi-polar Cold War between the Soviet Union and the United States.
Instead, we witnessed the monstrous development of a unipolar, “hyperpower” world, with endless wars and 1000 military bases anchoring the American Empire’s bid for what turned out to be an extremely short-lived prime time.
Havel’s vision may still proved prophetic — in the short run. Even more prophetic may be Graham Hancock’s vision of a stateless world.
