The geopolitics in the spheres of influence, domination, and overrule: towards a new world order or disorder?
AbstractThe term New World Order (NWO) appears to get a more comprehensive meaning from the most recent evolution of dramatic events in various parts of the world. Officially, there is still no any unified approach how it may look like, upon which pillars it will be built, and how it would operate. More assumptions can be heard by ordinary people than by those who are believed to have considerable impact on the flows of this outspoken order. Unlike great revolutionary changes of the past, e.g. the beginning of Industrial Revolution, the rise and fall of Communism, the emerge and the end of the Cold War, among others, that had a starting and ending point ranging from dates to years and at least decades, there is no any consensual answer to the question about NWO neither when, how, by what it has begun, nor if it is in the process and what its expectations are. The reason behind this uncertainty may be found in complex international circumstances that are difficult to be controlled, just as the two world wars were unpredictable in their course and outcomes. Large scale revolutionary experiments worldwide intended for an order often involve a great disorder. The Axis Powers had their own expectations at the beginning of World War Two (WWII) based on the plans they were implementing and got something very disappointing in the end. That is what may turn later to the current euphoria on the NWO. If in this article we are unable to prophesize what this order will bring about, the aim is to critically review the events in world geopolitics to show that it is a matter of the spheres of influence and struggle for domination, which many wrongly consider to be an agenda of the NWO.
