Europe will surpass USA and lead the world again
« on: July 10, 2017, 14:29 »
How about "Make America Great Again" of Trump? America is still great and will continue being great for many years, but America will never be as great as it was in the year 2000. Power of America reached the peak in the year 2000 before 9.11 event in 2001. The key basis of powerful America is absorbing global wisdom but global Internet invented by America is more conducive to China rather than America to absorb global wisdom. Therefore, America will gradually decline and the powers on the earth will continue spreading to multipolarity.

Huge population was and is the biggest advantage for China to surpass the richer countries such as Japan, UK and Germany in the aspect of comprehensive national power. And China will continue rising and be able to counterbalance America. Then the huge population will become instead the biggest disadvantage for China to continue rising. China has the largest quantity of high-density but low-quality high buildings in the world but has not any city like American Silicon Valley where is made up of low-density but high-quality buildings. It will take several decades for China to reduce so many redundant populations to break away from low-quality of crowded society so that it's impossible for China to surpass America and lead the world.

Only Europe has potential to surpass America and lead the world. Greece, Rome, Spain, Netherlands and UK were successively the greatest country in the world. The biggest characteristic of America relative to Europe country is "bigger" rather than "more advanced". Some Europe country that is smaller, weaker and more flexible than America will likely guide the world into new social model, just like Netherlands in the 16th century guided the world into capitalist society. Thus "Make Europe Great Again" will be more persuasive than "Make America Great Again".

But guiding the world will be not enough for any single Europe country to surpass America and lead the world. America is like the lion king, China is like the fattest elephant, India is like the second fattest elephant, Japan is like an alone wolf, Russia is like a remote polar bear and Europe is like a pack of non-united wolves. Only united wolves can surpass the lion king so political integration will be the final result of Europe, even if Eurozone and EU will briefly disintegrate and decline. Converging pressures from China and USA will stimulate declining and divisive Europe to become Europe Federation. America is like a kind of strong acid. China is like a kind of weak base but will gradually be like a strong base to counterbalance America. The Europe Federation will be like the neutral water and represent universal values of the world to lead the world again.

 The pack of non-united wolves   must first clarify the hierarchy. This has not been possible for decades and could take decades . We do not have the time . Every leader is rejected.

Iraq war started by W.Bush made USA get into troubles for 8 years and then Obama spent 8 years for solving the troubles.
In 20 years of future, USA will be counterbalanced by China. But neither USA nor China can unify the world so EU will have 20 years to gradually become a pack of united wolves.

Votre présentation pourrait être un vœu, mais n'est pas crédible réellement. Les dirigeants de l'U.E. ne sont pas des loups individuels, car ils ne ressemblent pas à des prédateurs. Je ne sais pas à quoi ils ressemblent dans le monde animalier, par ailleurs. (ni des abeilles, ni des fourmis, peut-être des chats domestiques !) ;)

Domestic cats when left to their own means soon turn feral.

This interesting argument has at least two stumbling blocks;

The inability of EU leaders to form a consensus, as selber points out.

The failure of EU states to form a recognizable form of Statehood.

Quote
Compulsory Functions of the (welfare) State.

The compulsory functions include maintenance of law and order within the State. This is done not only by maintaining a police force but also by instituting a set of courts to administer justice. Compulsory functions are the following:

1) Protection of life and property:

The first and the most important duty of the State are to protect the life and property of its people. ---The State regulates social life of the individual through laws.


2) Maintenance of peace and order:

Every government should aim at securing peace and order within the country.


3) Protection form external invasion or defense:

External security means security from external danger either of a military invasion or of encroachment upon international rights. The State should, therefore, be in a fit condition to defend itself against foreign attacks. For this purpose, it maintains a standing army, a navy and to fight in defense of the State. In times of peace too, the State has to deal with foreign powers and looks after its international interest. It also maintains diplomatic relations with other countries.

4) Dispensing justice:


It is an important function of the State that it should organize an independent and powerful judiciary. In the absence of an independent judiciary, people cannot have justice.

These are the most essential functions of the State. These essential functions are called the protective or police functions. The State also performs a large number of optional functions. As T.H. Green writes that "the business of the State is not merely the business of police man of arresting wrongdoers or of ruthlessly enforcing contracts but for providing for men an equal chance as far as possible of releasing what is best in their intellectual or moral natures." The State continues for sake of providing "good life" and hence arises its large variety of optional functions.

From; http://www.preservearticles.com/201012241597/functions-of-welfare-state.html

I see no prospect of the EU through it`s existing institutions meeting any of the criteria of Statehood. At best it may exercise many of the requirements listed above through internal treaties; but in extremity treaties are made to be broken.
