Another piece of historic falsification by "historian" Niall Ferguson.
3 June 2012 | by (Mars) – See all my reviews

For those who don't know, Niall Ferguson is a Western Russophobic propagandist. Just take a look at his body of work. In everything that he wrote he praised capitalism and the Western way of life. He is, of course, praised and promoted by Western propagandist publications. Russia and Communism aren't the only things he dislikes. He pretty much smears anything that's not Western. Like other Western authors these days he's trying to falsify history. One of their top objectives is the falsification of Russian history of the 20th century. That's right, the Soviet period. Don't believe me? Do some real research and find out for yourself. Russian philosopher Aleksandr Zinovyev already wrote about such people and about what's going on with Western society. If you've been told to hate and distrust Russians then turn to books by honest Western historians like Fernand Braudel or Carroll Quigley.

So what's really going on with the West? Obviously what Ferguson is saying is useless. Western Civilization is currently in the Age of Conflict, a bad period. It seems that the United States will become, or is already becoming, the universal empire of the West. Some may think that this is cool but it's not. The age of the universal empire is the last period in a civilization's life. After that it decays and then gets invaded by outsiders. It's a period when people's belief in their culture declines. This is what happened to the Roman Empire, the universal empire of Classical Civilization. The reason why the West dominates the world is because Western Civilization is the most powerful in history. But, like I said, it's also close to death. This is why Western culture is getting worse and worse, why the West is waging imperialist wars, and why the economic situation is bad. The rulers of the West are resorting to methods which aren't normal because the instrument of expansion, Industrial Capitalism, has become a structure of vested interests called Monopoly Capitalism. And Ferguson is actually praising this rotten system. He gets a paycheck from his masters by writing and producing bull, but I think that the average person needs to know what's really going on.
