"My problem is that I still tend to think like everybody else," said Tony. "I have always assumed that the new world-empire is going to be an American empire, because America has the greatest military might. I don't think the fondi allow this to happen. America has no imperial tradition and no imperial history. To the contrary, our brightest tradition has been on the side of human freedom and self-development. We stood proudly as the global enemy of imperialism. I think it is foolish to believe that the fondi will choose America as the power base for their coveted world-empire. They will use us towards this end to as far as we are useful to them, then they will throw us away. We are too much of a liability for them. To use people up and then throw them away has always been the fondi's tradition. There is no loyalty in the house of thieves. I think the power base of the new world-empire will be Britain. Britain has never had a history of freedom and self-determination, as we have had, which people could fall back on to challenge the empire. I think America is much too great a liability for them. They will destroy us, one way or another. They have already destroyed the better part of our economy through looting. We are presently more deeply in debt than anyone in the world."
"That is what I have been saying," said Steve. "There will never be an American Empire. They will utilize us as much as they can, and loot us in the process, then, when we are on our knees, they will wipe us out. I am not saying that they will do it exactly as I had outlined, which may be a high probability. There are countless ways to achieve the same end. I am merely saying that these kinds of synarchist responses are on the table, and we have to prevent them if we want to survive as a nation. I am saying that ever since the synarchists have hijacked our government, our nation has been in mortal danger, and everybody I know refuses to see that danger."
Steve then spoke to Ross and began to laugh, saying that he should have asked why the synarchists haven't destroyed America already. He suggested that this would have been a good question to ask.
"So, why haven't they?" Ross asked.
"I think they haven't, because they are fools," said Steve. "They are even greater fools than most people, because they are dreaming that they will bring America into the fondi's world-empire intact and alive, as a junior imperial partner, like Mussolini was to Hitler. I think they really believe that they can do this. As far as they see it, they are well on the way. They've already turned the entire population into moral and intellectual vegetables. Their problem is that they see what they want to see. The synarchists see a population that has become so gullible that the people believe anything they tell them, and will do anything they are told to do. But I don't think the fondi are buying that. Everything that I hear tells me that they aren't buying any of it. Sooner or later the fondi will pull the plug on America, and the synarchists will be their tool to do it. As I hear the fondi talking on the grape wine, America is far too great a liability to them for allowing America to become a part of a world-empire, or be the empire. They know that America's history has not yet been forgotten; not by the American people, nor by the people of the world. They know that this history has the potential to turn the American people, and much of humanity too, into human beings again. They are actually scared of the possibility."
"Still, I don't think that the synarchists, who are the government right now, will pull the plug on America," I said to Steve. "As you said, they are dreaming of bringing America into the global world-empire, or America becoming that empire. It is more likely that the ruling synarchists have synarchist traitors in their midst, who work for the fondi who are the real empire, These hidden synarchist people will do the fondi's bidding without hesitation, should the ruling synarchists fail to obey. They are the fondi's backup plan. I don't think the fondi are that stupid that they will run this kind of high profile operation without a backup plan. We have to assume that such a backup plan exists and that sometime down the line America is scheduled to be destroyed when its usefulness has run out, or when that destruction becomes useful for the fondi. The destruction of America has been the fondi's goal ever since the USA was founded, so why would that change? The fondi never relented from this goal. America represents the antidote to imperialism. They will never forget this. Nor will they be able to change this. They know that they can't. They know us better than we know ourselves, but not for long. We will begin to exploit our strength, the very strength that they fear. We will even begin to develop a real sense of justice that honors the brilliance of our humanity. It will no longer happen that when a person gets beaten up in our cities that people stand around watching the crime or walk away. They will all be held accountable together, as criminals against humanity, together with whoever is committing the crime that they allow to proceed. When we get to this high level of justice, of truthfulness with ourselves, there won't be any crime. Crime will be unthinkable. Synarchism will be unthinkable. The fondi will loose all of their stooges, and the world that they have known to operate in will exist no more. That will be their 'end of history.'"
I could see a sense of horror in Ross' rapidly changing facial expression while I spoke. It appeared to me that he could already see those millions, or tens of millions, or even hundreds of millions of people, dying in great agony, should we fail. He shook his head and said nothing.
"I know what you must be thinking," I said to him. "How can they do this? Every human being would be thinking the same thing. This is our strength. This will rouse people to do the human thing. That's a part of our history. We have roused ourselves once before and defeated the synarchists' Nazi empire. We did this, because our humanity demanded this. We had no choice. So we do well to ask ourselves: How could they dare plan this again and hope to get away with it? Indeed we have asked ourselves the same question every time before the synarchists unleashed their terrorism with ever-greater ferocity. 'How could they dare to do this?' But have we asked ourselves that? First there were a few hundred casualties, then a few thousand, then a few million. Will they feel any different about killing a few hundred million in one go? Probably not. It's all the same to them. They did Horoshima. They did Nagasaki. They will do the USA just the same. They will say, 'Let's do it!' And then, they will simply do it. The process is the same in every case. As the synarchist Bertrand Russell had put it: really high-minded people don't care about human life and happiness, especially other people's. They only care about it in their own little diabolical way as beast-men. They care about the gore they create and how it brutalizes society globally. The more gore they create, the deeper will the brutalization penetrate, reaching to the very core of the individual's consciousness. But the fact that this gore happens at all, no matter on what scale, indicates a failure on our part as a human society, which is a failure to value ourselves fully as the greatest manifest of life in the universe that the human being is. When this happens, we will rouse ourselves to protect what is precious, and tolerate no form of synarchism, imperialism, even the looting of society."
"We can still achieve this transition," said Steve to Ross, taking over from me. "That is our greatest strength. Right now, mankind's awareness of its own humanity is a thousand sizes too small, its like a grain of sand that we pick up from the seashore, instead of embracing the seashore as whole, including the waves, and the wind, and the sunshine. We can make the transition to this fuller realization of our humanity throughout the world. It is possible to do this on a global scale, Ross, because we are all human being together, existing as one. The universal unity of good, is our unity. It is possible to establish this fully. If the few of us here, can make this transition, as we have already begun to do, then all of humanity can do the same and go beyond it."
