More everything becomes useless
and most you believe it’s true
and the day of the End
you will not need to speak English

Franco Battiato

This verse, inspired by a famous song of the Italian singer Franco Battiato, “The King of the World”, not devoid of reference to the homonymous work of the French esoterist, Rene Guenon, and to all the corollaries deriving from it, seems, with its eschatological-oracular tones, to lend itself ad hoc in order to outline and extrapolate the geopolitical scenarios being in sight, in the first place for the imminent future of our continent, so for the entire planet.
 
The overwhelming economic crisis that we are experiencing at first hand, which, instead of finding a solution, bites more and more, along with the several dissolutive warning signs of spiritual nature, advocated by many traditionalists of the last century, does seem to place us in a epochal dark junction era, an era anyway of metamorphosis in comparison with the monolithic immobility that has characterized the previous scenarios of the international relationships.
The most recent update of these warning signs is represented by the extreme attempts of the Anglo-speaking West and its bards, to react to this sort of entropic process through the neo-conservatism – another regurgitation of the dialectical materialism of Marxian memory – and the unipolarism of the passed Bush era, besmirched in the Iraq quagmire. “The war against the sacred, never completed by the Left, which is more effectively carried out by the occidentalist Right” as writes Pietrangelo Buttafuoco.
Similarly, the allusion to the English language, paradigm of an asyntactic, irreverent and pseudo-egalitarian pragmatism lends itself well to rise to an icon of the clash of civilizations formulated by Samuel P. Huntington. By sunset, therefore, of some Western languages in favour of more conservative languages, utilizing in comparison of Latin, different writing systems if not even ideographic systems.
After the collapse of the Berlin Wall, it had spread an illusory idea, a belief that we had now reached a “unipolar” world, with a single hegemonic power, the United States of America, and, above all, a ‘unique’ culture ‘, represented by the concept of free market in economy and its liberal-democratic “superstructure” in politics.
But contrary to this view, today, many observers are increasingly in agreement that the geo-economic and geopolitical core of the world is moving toward the East and the centrality of the Anglo-speaking supremacy, which had its heyday during the last century, is shaken and crumbling in order to give way to a multipolarism already consolidated into new emerging entities, such as Russia, China, India and even Brazil.
However, beyond these “solo” players the real protagonists of the new Great Game, rather than individual countries are destined to be combinations or coalitions of countries based on a common background, such as Eurasian, because antecedent to the crushing of the “big identities “into the more restricted entities of the nation states.
And considering the geopolitical determinism, as well as the impulses and the synergistic movements that are crossing Eurasia, aimed at creating a new anti-Atlantis Silk Road, we can not minimize the role that might play all the minor entities, regional powers or communities of states which already have their own prestige on the international chessboard, such as Turkey, Iran or Central Asia.
Just Eurasia, because of its central role conferred on it by Mackinder, would seem destined to resume the role of hinge-axis and plot of that geostrategic diagram possessed by ancient empires of the steppes, especially now attributed to its geo-economic importance due to the massive presence of natural energy sources. As well as that of natural corridor or container – depending on the perspective – the two emerging macro-powers, China and India.
One of these new realities is precisely the Eurasian Economic Community (EurAsEC), an international organization which brings together some of the CIS member states. Founded in 2000 by Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan, and as observers the presence of Armenia, Moldova and Ukraine.
So much so that as starting from the January 2012, it will begin the practical phase of the Common Economic Space, which arguably has grown over the Customs Union of Kazakhstan, Belarus and Russia. Coherently there will be unified laws of real mechanisms for coordination of economic policies of the three countries and cross-border movement of resources, services, capital and workforce.
Side by side with the rise of this new community entity, we will also assist to a slow and inexorable crushing of another international actor: the European Union, which because of its outside-directed politics has shown that the only economy is not sufficient to implement a Community project like that. As says Alexandr Dugin, if it lacks a common political project, a clear geopolitical vision, it’ impossible create anything of reliable. And what should be considered is the construction of a Eurasian Union. Therefore, we should start with the theory of a multipolar world, and not with the technical steps of economic integration.
Moreover, as stated by Leonid Savin, Europe is destined to the cooperation with Russia. It is not only for the energy dependence that the European politicians love to return to these steps, but also out of necessity due to the geographical constitution: the Heartland is in the heart of Russia, being a magnet for the entire Eurasian periphery.
As for Italy, it is an Eurasian Door open to the Mediterranean, the hot area of the planet in recent months. One of the areas where the monopolar forces are trying to play a new hegemonic game through the destabilization of the Middle East and North Africa.
A geographical area which, since the dawn of time, has been epicentre and cradle of the European civilization, eclipsed with the advent of the modern era after the discovery of America, but which today is coming back into vogue because of the huge increase in international trade transactions. But that is also coming back into vogue because of the inevitable slip of Italy and of the other Euro-Mediterranean countries towards this liquid continent, because of the Carolingian-centric policy led by Paris and Berlin, which now seems to sink on the spreads.
As the Italian journalist Pietrangelo Buttafuoco writes: “The magnificent Mediterranean Sea would shine the coffers of our future because, in short, if there is a horizon where the world is in making, this is the Mare Nostrum, not Paris or Berlin, which does not have the strength of Ankara. And it has been better for the Turks if they have not come into Europe. Now they are doubling the GDP, ten-point every year, if they would have entered into the UE, they would tell differently in the neo-Ottoman season and in North Africa”.
After all is not a coincidence, that after the domino effect on the “regimes” of the Arabic countries, have fallen, albeit in soft and democratic manner, even the “regimes” of the countries bordering on the northern bank of the Mediterranean Sea, such as Greece, Italy, and Spain. Replaced, not by chance – at least in the first two cases – by governments, not free from Masonic connivances. As the new Italian prime minister, considered to be a Mason having had a dual affiliation, an English and a mixed Anglo-Franco-Belgian.
Italy is slipping into the Mediterranean and its role should be, next to that of Turkey, to contain the interference of these forces. In addition, the exercise of a leading role together with the Mediterranean countries of the north bank in order to create a new community that would differ from that one based on the Protestant ethic of work, characteristic of the of northern Europe counties.
However, if the time is not ripe for an awareness of this type, they will become soon for geo-economic necessity.
