Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

What is power about? Power is the ability to get other people to do things they don't wan't to do.

I can't put my finger on exactly why this entire discussion set my nerves on fire, though this casual comment sums it up.

Both western and eastern civilizations are a catastrophe, and we are all paying the price. There is nothing more to be learned from previous editions of civilization to help draft real solutions to the insanity which passes for realism in today's geopolitics.

What' s needed can only come from outside the box.  What's needed are solutions which derive their "power" from higher intelligence, based upon a far deeper understanding of how humans relate to the surface of this world ship. Anything less is more garbage.

From the perspective of higher intelligence, if one power wishes to begin nuclear arbitrage, this race deserves to be wiped out. I want my tax Geld spent on something healthy, and i want idiots to stop determining what reality is.

But if one wishes to discuss potent weaponry, then i posit that LSD in the water supply has no equal.  As far as my credentials to posit such (if you missed it above)...

They are informed from a lifetime of dialogue with my chief mentor in windpower and more, who also happened to be the Chief Designer of the Nautilus class of nuclear submarines, the very first. I wish he was still with us, so he could take you behind the woodshed for some extra-curricular education.

You studied some books on political power theory?  and that endows you with what?

Without "clear and present" VISION, this race is doomed.  Capish?
