The First World War, Cecil Rhodes & Anglo-Saxon Power

David William Pear says the era in which the British Empire set out to destroy Germany in 1902 — leading the way to World War I — is frighteningly similar to that of today’s U.S. hostility to the rising of China and Russia.

“History is always written by the winners. When two cultures clash, the loser is obliterated, and the winner writes the history books — books which glorify their own cause and disparage the conquered foe. As Napoleon once said, ‘What is history, but a fable agreed upon? ‘” — Professor Robert Langdon

{Well, it was not “the end.” The outcome of the First World War led to World War II. The outcome of WW2 led to the Cold War. “Winning” the Cold War created the mujahideen; rebranded as Al Qaeda, it led to the Global War on Terror, and never-ending wars.

In the 21st century the U.S. and its allies squandered their blood and treasure on never-ending criminal wars. Millions of people the U.S. slaughtered in West Asia are dismissed as “collateral damage.” Meanwhile, China has been using its resources for development, and lifting millions of people out of poverty.

The U.S. Empire has been in a long decline for decades. More Americans are falling into poverty, and the U.S. has been steadily falling in the United Nations Index of Human Development. It currently ranks No. 28 among developed countries. The index is a measure of infant mortality, healthcare, life expectancy, education and per capita income. The U.S. infrastructure, such as road, rail and airports, public utilities and the internet are behind other developed countries, too.

China’s economy is expected to surpass that of the U.S. in 2028. Russia has also revitalized its economy in the last 20 years. Every advance that China and Russia make is propagandized by the U.S. as “aggression.”}

“For the ‘complacent’ who live in what Gore Vidal labeled the ‘United States of Amnesia,’ the similarities should serve as a vivid reminder that many of the reasons currently given for discounting threats of war did not prevent World War I.”

Instead the U.S. has come up with its own “rules-based international order.”

{International capitalism is not based on peaceful competition. Instead it is based on military power, financial blockades, blackmail and might makes right. International capitalism is a system of imperialism, monopoly and war. When an empire is challenged, it lashes out. Empires try to destroy their competitors. Empires project their own lust for power and world domination onto all competitors.}

Basically it's humanitarian racism. False negative propaganda then becomes a tool to hide it.
