Dan Kovalik sees a shift away from the United States and the West, and a shift toward the East, primarily Russia and China. The Ukraine invasion marks the dramatic beginning of the Multipolar World. Moscow clearly saw the U.S. was intent on destroying Russia (e.g. RAND whitepapers). The media today are war-time propagandists and those who question the narrative are cancelled and lose their jobs. The U.S. Empire is collapsing and sanctions are speeding that up. Latin America is defying Uncle Sam and telling the U.S. to go pound salt, meanwhile looking for development assistance from China.
