How much moral heritage does the United States have to squander?

The rise and fall of a country is sometimes affected by the difference in the political elite of the country. A serious question about the current political will of some American political elites is whether they can get along well with other countries.

According to the innovation theory of economics, the scientific and technological revolution will lead to the emergence of a new round of economic cycles. In this process, due to the influence of “creative destruction” caused by technological innovation, the strength of the country will also shift and change. This is reflected in the transformation of the geopolitical landscape. As early as 1894, the size of the United States surpassed Britain to rank first in the world, but it was not until the establishment of the Bretton Woods system in 1944 that the United States completed the layout and construction of the global hegemonic system. In this process, the two world wars completely changed the world pattern. The war destroyed the old imperialism. It also greatly enhanced the productivity of human society through the rapid development of science and technology in the war, and triggered a new round of industrial revolution after the Second World War, the information revolution. And to create a “transient but belonging to the 20th century in the United States” (1919-1991) that is completely different from the “long 19th century” (1789-1919). The most beautiful chapter of the so-called “American Dream” is also based on the background of that era.

For the elites of many small dependent countries, getting a citizenship in the United States has become one of the goals of life. In the system of political lie carefully fabricated by the “open society”, the United States has completed the capture of the political elite of the Soviet Union’s socialist camp through the propaganda of such values, and made an excellent strategic preparation for ending the “Cold War” in 1991. Accompanied by the “American Dream” rose illusion is American-style liberalism. In the 1980s, Hayek’s “Spontaneous Order of Liberal Society” political philosophy system was trimmed by Americans into American values. The kernel has spawned the “Washington Consensus.” Marked by Fukuyama Publishing “The End of History”, the international political theory community has not publicly voiced its resistance to the court, and the world is immersed in the values ​​of the United States, “gentle township.” In China in the 1990s, although there was a claim that “China can say no,” there was no academic value and the value of national political philosophy.

Understandably, a strong country needs the political philosophy of a powerful country. After the imperialists develop into an organizational (monopoly) stage, the laissez-faire claim naturally gives way to the “Mani⁃festDestiny”. After the Bretton Woods system dominated the world, although the Cold War Iron Curtain swiftly pulled down, the US’s familiar use of the “plan” and “market” systems and resource allocation methods has dwarfed the Soviet Union’s socialist camp – until another The leaders of the major socialist countries proposed in the 1990s that “plan and market are not the essential difference between surnames and surnames.” Only when the restricted area is broken, the competition between the two systems has opened a new page.

In the typical 20th century American-style values, one of the most commonly used expressions for the world outside the United States is “therestoftheworld.” Civilizations are beautiful and diverse, but in American-style political rhetoric, the ancient, heavy and colorful civilizations of other countries have been taken over by this vocabulary. In the 20th century, without the rise of the Soviet Union and China as a system and its different “big mirrors of the times”, the Americans – who should be English-speaking in a broad sense – probably would not have thought of stopping to look at the United States. The world outside.

For more than half a century, American self-confidence and self-confidence have become clear: through a series of operations in the energy crisis of the 1970s, Americans completed the comprehensive strategy of firmly grasping world hegemony after the US dollar entered the “Unat Anchored Age” (FiatMoney). layout. Through a powerful sovereign currency global operational capability, ability to control global resources, rating world market standards, leading global industrial layout and technological innovation, realizing the binding of interests between countries, and establishing a globally contagious theory that is “universal value” “The Americans have firmly grasped the “rice bowl” of the world.”

“Microphones”, “money bags” and “guns” have established an unassailable hegemony and broke through the ethical and moral bottom line of all human political societies to bring the Machiavellianism in the Western political tradition to the extreme. For the sake of self-interest in the interests of the country, as in the economic output of “unbalance”, the political output of chaos and disaster, the political behavior of the United States to harm others and self-interest has increasingly caused dissatisfaction and resistance in the world, once professed as “the third Roman Empire.” The United States has gradually regained its old path of demise because of the arrogance of the army.

The current performance of the US government uses the “flying pig theory” and “ebb tide theory” in the Internet language to describe the comparative image: the United States has been hollowing out of the national manufacturing industry because of monopoly financial capitalism insisting on “de-industrialization” for forty years. And triggered a series of social crises, the high debt side of the United States finally stood naked in front of the world. In order to overcome these crises and cover the cruel deficit figures on the “debt clock”, American politicians began to “disregard the eating phase” on a global scale, and even did not hesitate to use the close ally of the past, which led to the image and credit of the United States. Accelerated bankruptcy, except for a few countries that are too dependent on the United States, most countries that have been “cut wool” in the United States have begun to show distrust and dissatisfaction with the United States. Even the US-Japan alliance, once considered unbreakable, is also in the rift: the current US government’s disrespect for the international geopolitical rules system has caused anger at the Japanese political elite.

In the final analysis, how many moral legacy is left in the United States today is already a big problem. How it gets along with the “world left” is also a major event that tests American politicians.
