The current state of the United States and the West after the COVID-19 lockdowns created a population weary of the isolation they endured. A tragic loss of fellow citizens on top of various social media scandals and anxieties about the future is upsetting the political process. Geopolitically speaking with so much disruption in terms of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the potential Chinese invasion of Taiwan, and the standard use of physical kinetic weapons (bombs, missiles, rockets, and bullets).
The economic sanctions from the US and the West fuel the concept of dedollarization which the Hamilton Institute is vehemently against because it harms the economy of the US. The rising specter of Cyberattacks as being the mainstream weapon choice in current and future conflict has consequences that can pull the major powers closer to war because if a zero-day is found and exploited by a nonstate actor but a state action can get the blame. Also, non-competitive nations can simply buy and launch cyber 9/11 terrorist-style attacks globally without a US military budget or forces. This could create another risk of destabilizing companies, individuals, and institutions away from the battlefield and bringing it to their doorstep.
Severe political deadlock and a record distrust of the institutions of the West can create a view of the future as dire and violence-plagued. We at the Hamilton Institute are calling for a new world order using the US to absorb the west and various other nations. Under the systems of Democracy and Capitalism to advance the human species to a much greater calling of a unified collective in order to secure the future and stabilize the planet. We are long passed the periods of mercantilism, industrial raw materials containment, silly puppet (client) governments who allocate aid back to certain donors, and the climate crisis which the West has solved but is not pushing because of these mundane distractions. The old order system has been completely disintegrated which has people looking for alternative ones.
An updated tax plan and enlarged tax base will help create a Neo Washington Consensus where we make up for the past mistakes and bring the world to the principles of the Declaration of Independence, The Constitution of the United States (including the Bill of Rights), and The Civil Rights Act of 1964 which offers the best form for the development and inclusion of the global human family. Visual Capitalist has a great concept for a US market that is larger than the Chinese market. This helps create a scenario that was outlined in Matthew Yglesias “1 billion Americans” without the crazy political debate that is not needed in Washington right now. Here’s a crazy concept include Russia in this market which will calm down the uncertainty and chaos on the planet today.
“No Senate tradition has been more steadfastly maintained than the annual reading of President George Washington’s 1796 Farewell Address. In this letter to “Friends and Citizens,” Washington warned that the forces of geographical sectionalism, political factionalism, and interference by foreign powers in the nation’s domestic affairs threatened the stability of the Republic. He urged Americans to subordinate sectional jealousies to common national interests.”
This is a fanatic time to review the farewell address of President Washington in this time to understand”Founder Washington’s Intent” to the creation of a more perfect union. Washington’s 1796 speech is eerily relevant in this global environment in which geographical sectionalism (Russia and Ukraine, Hong Kong, and the South China Sea/Taiwan), political factionalism (polarization, donors calling for favors, and corporate rent-seeking), and interference by foreign powers are too present. Our generation will advance the missing concept of “Spirit of 76” which is that we will keep marching forward together with malice and hatred toward none. Our Generation can move this forward and create a drive to perfect our genetic union which is our common heritage. Also, this will help reduce the inflation where 40 percent more dollars were created which we need to use and bring into the Western capital markets, VCs and Banks.
Type 1 Civilization, this where the world should be focusing its energy, passion, scientists, and world leaders to aspire. Our generation will control and master the planetary energy which is Thermo, hydro, wind, oceans, and use technology to build our future footprint into the stars. The United States can create a Global Landscaping on Earth and a Solar Scaping to ensure human survival, scientific development, and benefit. This well in turn creates an explosion of development and opportunities for humankind.
Our generation is bounded by these principles laid out in the preamble of the US Constitution which lays out where we are supposed to guide this massive Aircraft Carrier known as the United States.
- Establish justice
- Insure domestic tranquility
- Provide for the common defense
- Promote the general welfare
- Secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity
“It now rests with the confederated Powers, by the line of conduct they mean to adopt, to make this Country great, happy, & respectable; or to sink it into littleness—worse perhaps—into Anarchy & Confusion; for certain I am, that unless adequate Powers are given to Congress for the general purposes of the Federal Union that we shall soon moulder into dust.”
Founding Purpose: “We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity.”
The mechanism for achieving this goal is Capitalism and Democracy
