Although the decline of Stalin's Russia and Mao's China seemed to declare the triumphant success of capitalism and the defeat of communism as an idealogy, it also unleashed a powerful deadly spin on capitalism. Now capitalism will no more compete with communism and achieve social progress but regress into reactionary right-wing politics.
The existence of Stalin's Russia and Mao's China was useful to suppress anti-capitalist movements within United States as being pro-Russia or pro-China and people who represent these socialist politics as being anti-nationals. This was accomplished quite well during the McCarthy regime and recently during George Bush's presidency when the bogey was Bin Laden's Islam. This spin has caused capitalism to evolve in a reactionary right-wing political direction.
Having raised Christian fundamentalism to the tilt, the U.S. will find it difficult to attack Syria, as it is the Syrian government of Assad who is protecting the Syrian Christians. It is only natural that majoritarian politics will win-out in Syria but for both U.S. and U.K. their alliance with Saudi Arabia and Israel will push them towards this war on Syria.
Without socialism and progress of the human race towards higher plane of social unity, this kind of conflict and acrymony will become more acute. Capitalism and global competetion will cause human alienation and acute racial and religious hatred. United States is a paper tiger that survives precicely by making alliances with oil manufacturing countries and their political manuevers.
United States will be slowly reduced to the lowly status of pimp capitalism that will tolerate and accomodate all sort of feudal idealogies such as Hinduism, Wahabi Islam, Judaeism, Bhudhism, and may be even African Vodoo in order to develop friendly relationship with those countries that supply raw materials for their companies that manufacture elsewhere in the world in places such as China or India.
The profit making champions of free market capitalism declared that socialism kept people in dark ages and capitalism will move them towards progress. What progress? Progress towards medieval period of religious and racial fracticide? Newer scientific theories on evolution and physics will be created that will cause the ghosts of Galileo, Newton and Darwin to raise. You can call them "hair-raising theories".
American CIA and FBI will play the role of pimps on either side, some times playing to Wahabi Saudi Sultanites (WSS) on the one side and Israeli Right-wing Rabbis (IRR) on the other side. Countries like Iran that make social progress in democracy would be considered dangerous enemy countries that posses Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD). We can write this profound equation in maths:
WSS + IRR = WMD
Pitting one against the other, the Islamic Pakistanis against the Hindu India, the Shia Syrians against the Sunny Syrians, Women's right on the one side and Al Queda on the other side. Myanmar military on the one side and Aung San Suu Kyi on the other side.
It is important that the rest of the world remains in ancient feudalism and backwardness so that United States and Europe can preach the great virtues of capitalism to the third world and the virtues of being a neo-colonial slave.
