Hughesair (Inflection Point)

Retired physician and air taxi operator, science writer and part time assistant professor, these editorials cover a wide range of topics. Mostly non political, mostly true, I write more from experience than from research and more from science than convention. Subjects cover medicine, Alaska aviation, economics, technology and an occasional book review. The Floatplane book is out there. I am currently working on Hippocrates a History of Medicine and Globalism. Enjoy!

Brzezinski

 In 1969 Zbigniew Brzezinski wrote, . nation state as a fundamental unit of man’s organized life has ceased to be the principal creative force. International banks and multinational corporations are acting and planning in terms that are far in advance of the political concepts of the nation state.”

These words form the central kernel of everything I write against Globalization. Brzezinski was born in Warsaw Poland in 1028 His father was a Polish diplomat posted to Germany 1931-35 and Moscow 1936-38. Zbigniew grew up knowing Russia, Germany and the beginning of WWII. In 1938 his father was posted to Montreal, Canada where Zbigniew learned English and presumably the American revolution from a Canadian perspective. He received his BS and Masters in Canada and only later his PhD from Harvard. He became a U.S. citizen in 1958. Brzezinski served as a counselor to LBJ, 1966-68 and National Security Advisor under Jimmy Carter, 1977-81. He belonged to the Realist school of foreign policy, arguing against President Eisenhower’s and John Foster Dulles’s push back policies against Russia expansion. Clearly his motivations were idealist, but from  a European and international view. 

With such a world view, Brzezinski, Carter and Rockefeller founded the Trilateral Commission, its first priority, the re-educating our youth towards a world view, diminishing their attachment to American Democracy and economic dominance.
