Trump, Brexit and a new world order

By Dickson Igwe, Contibutor

Nationalism has been superseded by globalism. The world is changing significantly and rapidly.

The screams of fear and anger, from western citizens, especially blue-collar whites in the USA and Britain, will not change that. Ok.

This Old Boy and Johnnie Walker met a friend in Road Town on his way to the bank last Wednesday.

His friend, a very prominent Briton, Belonger, and national swimming sponsor stated: “I have been reading your columns, Igwe.” Yours truly was delighted.

He asked his friend what he felt about Brexit, to which this writer is totally opposed.

The response was: “Brexit will happen for the simple reason Brits of the older generation have never really liked the Germans and the French. Brits do not even like each other,” he admonished.

“The English have no great love for the Scots and Irish, and vice versa,” he added.

Now, that was a huge revelation for this Old Boy. He never really considered the matter of who likes who with regard to Brexit. OK. Race hate and social division in the USA, and the huge political divide of Brexit Britain, are here to stay. There is an invisible war taking place in the western world. This is a fight against change by a significant subset of the ‘white’ population in the USA and Britain especially. Sociologists see this phenomenon as a fear of whites losing the ‘natural advantages and privileges’ of whiteness, in a western world controlled by white men. The old certainties are being destroyed.

Western power is shifting towards the east, with a rising China in an economically powerful Asia. This is impacting manufacturing and farming communities in the US and UK, negatively.

Outsourcing by wealthy western investors is closing down once solid industries and businesses, in towns and cities across the US and Britain. This is driving social upheaval.

The world is becoming a single economy controlled by super-wealthy investors — the one percent — who manage multibillion-dollar multinationals from superyachts, executive jets, and remote hideaways, on equally remote islands. China is expected to overtake the USA as the world’s largest economy in a decade. China’s super-wealthy are catching up in wealth measures with the USA’s super-wealthy- China is trading significantly with the Third World. China is challenging the USA as ‘world economic overlord’.

Supply chains today are no longer based in a specific geography, but instead, sit in multiple locations and cyberspace, and are organic and fluid, not rigid and static.

The USA is losing both hard and soft power, owing to the ‘horrible’ presidency of Donald Trump, who has lost key allies, and is making the USA increasingly, disliked everywhere, including in the USA’s own region: the Americas.

In the Middle East and Africa, Russia and China are moving in to take the USA’s place in the game of power, as the US retreats into its own region.

The USA, turning its back on the Middle East, Syria, and the Kurds, is just the beginning of a geopolitical shift to the benefit of Russia, as the US withdraws into isolation, despite its overwhelming military might.

There is culture war in the west between different social, economic, and racial groups. It is furthermore a demographic war that will be fought until the bitter end. It will end with the establishment of a new global order, driven by investors, global corporations, and new and rising powers, such as China and India. Trump and Brexit are simply the birth pains of that new order.

    • Bullshit says:

      First, worry about your own third world territory who leads the bottom in education, communication, infrastructure, education and economy. To speak of another nation as an authority just lends itself to the stupidity of the author. The U.K. is in favor of Brexit because they don’t want to be dictated by a group of nations that have lower economic stands than the U.K. In other words they feed off the U.K. just as the BVI does. As far as Trump, understand he has created the highest economic status for blacks, lowest unemployment in history and has transformed incarceration for blacks giving thousands early release. In other words the divide is created by media that wishes to create divide. Now bright man please tell us what Obama did for the black man. A lot of unfulfilled promises just like the politicians of the BVI. PLEASE return to your residence under the rock in which you live and just shut up.

  4. Igwe is racist says:

    1- Those that live in a glass house shouldn’t throw stones.
    2- the western world is more diverse and open minded than BVI
    3- China’s economy is built by sweatshops and IT theft. 1/3 of China’s ppl live on $2/day
    4- Trump’s “horrible” presidency has the lowest unempolyment in 50 years, the stock market is 33% higher since his election. Lower taxes and 3% gdp.

    Serious China has risen based on theft of intellectual property and grossly unfair trade practices and out right bribery. And this is the world leader you’re looking up to? All you need to do is look at countries that China has lent money to and has internal stolen their resources and assets

          Africa is in the situation it is due to European colonization. Do you guys know anything of history, or just what you have been taught to believe? Ignorance abounds everywhere, and apparently very rampant in the BVI, as is blatant hatred, racism and denial. I have never experienced anything like the people who live in this territory.

  10. White racists says:

    It is amazing that people who have racism in the DNA will call Igwe a racist- just goes to show racists white hate being outed

      Being racist comes from all angles and all directions. So blame the guy who wrote this article for his racism and not some other group who had completely nothing to do with this.
