From West to East Prologue
This is a story about the very gradual shift in the tectonic plates of global power and wealth, from the West (primarily the United States of America, United Kingdom, and European Union) to the East (primarily China and Russia), which became perceptible around the start of this millennium.
Since 2008 the movement in those tectonic plates has been picking up speed, to the point that it is becoming increasingly noticeable. It now appears we are approaching the final stages of what will be seen, in retrospect, as the greatest transfer of power and wealth in the history of mankind. How long this process will take to complete is impossible to predict, but the next three or four years will be crucial.
Within the principal storyline, there is a secondary storyline regarding a group of a few ultra-ultra wealthy family dynasties. Henceforth, the writer will refer to this small group of family dynasties as the “Puppeteers,” because they operate, unseen, from behind the curtain, pulling the strings of “The Powers That Be” (TPTB).
Over the last two centuries, it is hypothesised that the Puppeteers have carefully constructed a framework of organisations that have enabled them to accumulate massive financial power, which they have parlayed into enormous political influence around the world, particularly in the West. Their ultimate goals are a One World Currency and One World Government.
The reader may think that the Puppeteers are just another conspiracy theory. However, by the end of chapter one, the reader will probably arrive at the same conclusion as the writer: that the Puppeteers do exist, notwithstanding the fact that their identities and numbers may never be accurately known.
The Puppeteers, through their puppets TPTB in the United States of America, the United Kingdom, and Europe, are essentially waging a war with the East, principally China and Russia, because they refuse to accept vassal nation status in a US unipolar world. The Chinese and Russians seek a multipolar world, where nations respect the sovereign rights of other nations. As a result, China and Russia felt compelled to form an extraordinarily close alliance across the full spectrum i.e. geopolitical, financial, economic, military, energy, in a joint effort to resist being subjugated to vassal nation status to the United States.
This war is being waged financially and economically, as well as through regime change, proxy military action, and direct military action. It is noteworthy that approximately 96 percent of the Western mainstream media (MSM) is controlled by just six corporations, and they are heavily influenced by the Puppeteers. So the great majority of Western society are blissfully unaware of the historic developments that are unfolding, or if they are aware, their knowledge has been spun by the MSM so as to create entirely the wrong impression. Note (1)
Unlike the spin, misinformation, and outright lies spread by the Western mainstream media, both China and Russia are far more interested in trade, commerce, and the development of their two nations, and those of their neighbouring countries, than they are in military activity. Indeed, the mainstream media have been guilty of egregiously misleading Western society about these two nations, their leaders, their intentions, and their aspirations.
Over the last twenty-five years or so, China and Russia have undergone a metamorphosis, a great deal of which is unseen and unreported in the West. They have been quietly and steadily going about the business of making their nations more self-reliant and independent. The storyline of The Greatest Transfer of Power and Wealth in the History of Mankind is inextricably intertwined w with that of the Puppeteers. Together, they make a fascinating narrative, full of intrigue and deception. It is made all the more thought provoking because it has already impacted the lives of hundreds of millions of people around the world, both West and East, and will impact billions as the endgame plays out and the final outcome is decided.
As the story progresses, the reader may come to the rather depressing conclusion that the Puppeteers and TPTB appear to show little or no concern about the well-being of the other 99 percent-plus of the world’s population.
The root causes of the 2008 financial and economic crisis were never addressed. The writer likens that crisis to a hurricane; phase one was in 2008 when the front wall of the (hurricane) crisis hit; since mid-2009 the world has been in the eye of the (hurricane) crisis, which is a period of relative calm; phase three, the far side of the (hurricane) crisis which looms ever closer, will hit with a ferocity significantly greater than phase one in 2008.
Matters are likely to come to a head when phase three of the (hurricane) crisis erupts and G20 agreement cannot be reached on an acceptable course of action to address the root causes of the crisis. The implications for billions of people around the world will be profound and are outlined in some detail in the final chapter.
The goals of the West (read Puppeteers) and the East (Chinese-Russian bloc) are almost diametrically opposed, and various possible outcomes are examined in the final chapter of the book along with the ramifications.
The writer makes absolutely no pretentions that this book is an academic work per se. Rather, it is an attempt to inform the reader about issues that are rarely addressed truthfully in the MSM. Certain aspects of this story are by their nature opaque; in such cases the writer will hypothesise on the basis of the anecdotal evidence available.
This subject matter, by its very nature, is very wide-ranging in its scope. So, rather than delve deeply into any one aspect, the writer’s intention is to provide the reader with sufficient details to obtain a clear, big-picture understanding of this shift in global power and wealth from the West to the East.
