THE Sufi Lesson To Be Learned In Iraq
by B Wook
THE background to US failure abroad & in all quarters since the end of 1989 rests in the history of late-modern Progressivism, its rise & fall throughout the Old Atlantic West.
Progressive service professionalism was a great breakthrough especially in education, socialwork, medicine & in great American cities and in fact it broke the back of the old entrenched corruption of the New Immigration political bosses.
But, like all human constructions it, too, had a great Shadow on it, namely that of the eternal egotism of mankind; in short order, Woodrow “Woody” Wilson was flailing away & floundering abroad to “make the world safe for democracy”.
Again & in a bare five generations, American career-professionalism both proliferated beyond both all hope & sense; hence, today, everyone is deemed to be some sort of factitious “professional,” or at least a Sales Associate.
The complete OMNI-incompetency today & since the end of the Cold War of the American and, indeed, the entire North Atlantic, foreign policy establishment in fact objectively demonstrates the final crisis of late-modern Credential Professionalism now on us:
In Early Postmodernity, now, the academic “creation” of expertise & of loan-indentured “experts” to wield it is in fact an anachronism & that is indeed THE lesson we are now having rammed forcibly home by such bare-faced phenomena as the Islamic revival & the rise of the Far East.
