Globalism means - amongst other things - the elimination of nations, of states. And the fact that we are living in a globalistic era means - as long as this era lasts - that globalism is more powerful and thus seems to win. But who knows who will really win in the end? Globalism will end someday. :wink:

It may end but with a whimper , a thousand years is a mild estimate considering the undisputed power of an established center.

The rationale for that is, the coming to reality of a 1984 type of brave new world, with little chance of developing a reactionary outward dissent.

You mean a new thousand year kingdom (empire) is likely?

If they develop computerized intelligence resistant to viruses causing fungal infections why not? A thousand years of empire is not unheard of. , Romans, including Charles the Great lasted way over that. An uncontested empire solving the problem with internal decay can go on way longer.

Besides all they have to do is to redefine states as an exclusive and only existing empire as a state OR state of mind.

Just wait until they roll out a new digital currency worldwide. Bank on it.
The condition of man... is a condition of war of everyone against everyone.

I put for the general inclination of all mankind, a perpetual and restless desire of power after power, that ceaseth only in death.

The Holy Roman Emipre of German Nation lasted 1000 years: from 843 to 1806. The Frankish empire that Karl der Große (Charles the Graet) established was the predecessor of the Holy Roman Emipre of German Nation. Both had not really to do with the Ancient Roman empire - unless one accepts wishful thinking as reality. All of this Kaisers wanted to be like the Caesars were, but the Holy Fathers (popes) of the Christian Church wanted the same. So, we have two sides of this mytho-motivity: a more secular one and a more sacral one. This time was over In 1806, when almost everything became secularized, although after this secularization there was the Restoration, namely from 1815 till 1848 or, in some regions, even till 1870.

This worldwirde currency could be called "Globo". Am I the first one with the idea of this "Globo"?

"Globo" sounds like "Euro", doesn't it? :wink:

Well that's probably what it is the quantum capitalization of the mist critical stage in the material manifestation of CAPITAL has been vested almost beyond possibility in Wall Street.

So then the adage what works is what matters becomes insoluble.
