If we dwell a little more on the issue of the U.S. global dominance ever since the downfall of Berlin Wall, there follows a bewildering thought,
With a hindsight, an overwhelming number of nations and/or countries have retreated to a cozy solution to welcoming the U.S. (hegemony) with arms wide open.
The ways how the U.S. has managed to imperceptibly spread its dominance are via all manner of cultural, educational, economic, financial and political influence of the U.S. seeping through the cracks and fault lines of any societal texture.
They invariably have,
When the perpetrators behind the curtains are asked how is it possible that they always use the same tactics in,
When asked why the Global West doggedly insist on military solutions to the ongoing Ukrainian crisis, some commentators tend to think that most probably because their politics of hegemony and continual warmongering have mercifully started to die down.
The politics of imperial dominance and U.S. monopoly is starting to be unsustainable.
The U.S. allies from this side of the Atlantic have mostly been unswervingly loyal to and blindly obeyed the global sheriff up until the 2003 and the outright and resolute refusal by Germany and France to join their impending Iraq invasion.
On that occasion, the countries which constitute the most powerful pillars of the EU have denied the hegemon its self-righteous arrogance to illegal interventionism.
That historic moment can be viewed as the springboard for the creation of a multipolar world in the new millennium yet it did not put an end to unipolarity.
The U.S. continued behaving the way it did before.
Then came the year 2018 and a critical moment when Vladimir Putin announced that Russia,
Russia gained strategic advantage in that respect.
That may well have been the end of the unipolarity as we know it yet the issue has remained that the U.S. finds it hard to admit its imminent demise.
Let us recall a Russian thinker, Nikolai Danilevsky, a biologist by profession, who adopted an organic view of the world.
In his most famous work, titled Russia and Europe, he outlined a theory that Russia and Western Europe were entirely distinct "cultural historical types."
Different cultural historical types, he said,
Oswald Spengler also presented a world view based on the cyclical rise and decline of civilizations in which he argues that a culture blossoms from the soil of a definable landscape and dies when it has exhausted all of its possibilities.
Today the matters seem to be vastly different given that there are two nuclear powers with a vast potential to destroy the world.
The situation seems to be much more dangerous than it has ever been because the U.S. is only too willing to get stuck in the Thycidides Trap with China.
The budding silhouette of the multipolar world has long emerged and with time it will take a more stable shape.
The West has not managed to make a more significant onward march to the Far East and the Global South in generic terms, if we exclude Japan and South Korea from the equation.
One has to just consider for a moment a plethora of sophisticated statements as per the onward marching multipolar world given by Sergey Lavrov up to date:
Some Western commentators argue that Russia is facing further isolation because 'all' the 'democratic' countries have launched an avalanche of sanctions onto it and condemned it publicly in the UN General Assembly since the onset of the Russian special military operation in Ukraine.
All those countries who tend to arbitrarily attribute the 'democratic' badge to themselves mostly go on to wrongfully claim that Russia has the support of the countries which know of no liberal democracy in their autocratic regimes.
First and foremost, this claim is based on flawed logic.
The number of countries which have introduced sanctions on Russia is about 30 and the number of countries which did vote in the UN General Assembly is 140 out of which 110 countries do not plan to place sanctions on Russia and they do not want to gang up on any pressure on it either.
If we do some basic mathematics,
Even these ongoing colossal changes apparently bring about the world dividing into two poles,
The colossal changes have already happened globally.
Now overt economic cooperation up to date has melded into regional and international geopolitical cooperation among BRICS, SOC and beyond.
To get back to the Western (flawed) views of the world divided into the arbitrarily attributed democracies on one hand and randomly ostracized autocracies on the other, the origins for these flawed views are certainly from the divide and conquer Western supremacy and Colonialism.
That colonial world view is mirrored in the words of Josep Borrell and his rather arrogantly awkward metaphor,
No amount of profuse apologies will help this hapless unelected bureaucrat from Brussels with his gauche 'witticisms' in his overwhelmingly racist discourse.
Obviously, that is an enormous effort to 'smother' the world with an artificial division, an effort of 'all guns blazing' 'all-out war' against,
And yes, lest we forget,
In case the '(un)democratic' Europe with its utterly reckless moves,
