GTI- After the second world war, the world became bipolar, the US Bloc with extreme liberal ideology, the USSR Bloc with Communist ideology. The Cold War era. Other countries have no choice but to join the two blocs or choose neither, non-alliance. Both of them never had sovereignty in the true sense. After the USSR collapsed in 1991, the US became the sole ruler of world hegemony and dictated to weaker countries. The US with its media power controls world opinion.
Now, the power of US imperialism is weakening, and is starting to leave West Asia and strengthen its hegemony in the Indo Pacific.
Dr. Anderson explains the concept of counter hegemonic studies to Real Thinkers Institute (RTI), August 6, 2023. The "Counter" means to fight against the hegemonic narrative spread by the imperialist media. While the concept of resistance is a universal value across religions and ethnic groups that can unite resistance entities against western hegemony. Venezuela, Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Indonesia, Russia, China, share the same values against all forms of oppressive hegemony. Australia should be part of Asia, not part of imperialism.
Anderson presented his views on Washington's movement after West Asia formed Asia Pacific through the Taiwan project. How should Australia carry out an anti-hegemonic foreign policy.
