Clocking in a 450 pages, this second volume of The Clash of the Two Americas picks up the tale with a recapitulation of two opposing foreign policy doctrines that clashed to shape the USA’s character going into the young 20th century. Where the McKinley program hinged upon a re-activation of an anti-colonial tradition rooted in George Washington’s 1796 speech on avoiding foreign entanglements and John Quincy Adams’ formulation of the Munroe Doctrine, the opposing Anglo-American school chose to see America’s destiny inextricably linked to the British Empire as co-conquerors of darker skinned races of the world. Where one system is exemplified in the outlook of Colorado Governor William Gilpin, the other was represented by the Anglophile race patriot Alfred Thayer Mahan.
Act 1- 1890-1929
After exploring this clash in some detail, Act one of this present volume reviews the international spread of the American system to China where Dr. Sun Yat-sen explicitly modelled his republican revolution upon the best elements of the American experience with a focus on Abraham Lincoln’s theory of government. We also encounter a group of Russian patriots led by Sergei Witte and Dimitry Mendeleyev whose efforts to apply this system in Russia were overturned by a Wall Street funded color revolution in 1905 and 1917. We Review why the American system failed to take hold in Canada and how Germany was targetted for destruction.
Act 2 -1929-1945
Act two features seven chapters that tackle the return of the American System after 31 years of Anglo-American insanity to Washington D.C. with the surprise victory of Franklin Delano Roosevelt in 1932. The tale of FDR's battles with Wall Street and the British oligarchy is told along with the stories of Ferdinand Pecora who brought JP Morgan to his knees, General Smedley Butler who exposed a coup and more.
Act 3- 1945-1968
Act three tells the story of the sabotage of FDR’s post-war vision, the rise of the Cold War and stories of several valiant battles against the Anglo-American deep state during the 1945-1968 period.
Act 4 – An Intermezzo
Act four serves as an intermezzo of sorts by outlining five chapters that aim to provide insight into the nature of epistemological warfare as a tool of empire. It is only by understanding the battle over the mind both of the individual as well as of group dynamics that such things as MK Ultra, the CIA’s Congress for Cultural Freedom, or the growth of the cult of artificial intelligence in the post-WW2 age can make any sense.
Act 5 – 1968-present
In Act five, you will read five chapters detailing the re-conquest of the United States after the murder of Bobby Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr. in 1968.
Act 6 – The Return of Open System Economics
Act six takes us into our present period of universal history as the world finds itself pulled once again between two opposing paradigms. While the predicates have been modified, the essential character of this schism of unipolar vs multipolar paradigms is the same today as it was in 1963, 1945, 1901, 1865 and 1776.
