Cacophony, Not Harmony: US Foreign Policy’s Terrible Tune

“[T]he function of a drone in music is to play a single underlying note or chord continuously throughout a song, while layering melodies/harmonies above it. Those melodies/harmonies are specific variations; the drone note is the theme. The US foreign policy drone note since at least as far back as World War 2, and certainly since the fall of the Soviet Union has been ‘global hegemony.’ That is, the US not just as world cop, but world judge, world jury, and world executioner. The martial melody the US regime plays over that drone note is full-spectrum dominance …. But if the world is a big band, nowhere near all of its 195 regimes agree to accept the US as its leader,  play in the same key,  or keep the same beat.” (03/16/23)
