An extract from a textbook of history on planet Eurotopea in 2503

Mankind learnt, through the U.S. experience, that affluence and power, combined with ignorance, human insensitivity and selfishness, was the greatest WMD that humanity would ever experience.

DURING THE 20th-21st century, there was a country called the U.S. on planet Earth that became home to some of the most talented and creative people around the world who came to its door to escape oppression or due to lack of opportunities in their own country. These immigrants and their progeny over several centuries made the U.S. the most powerful, the richest and the most affluent country on Earth at that time. The U.S. became the world leader not only in respect of creativity in science and technology that was used for the benefit of mankind but also, unfortunately, in respect of development and stockpiling of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) and newer technologies of warfare on an unprecedented scale.

This made the government and the people of the U.S., representing just 4 per cent of the population of the world, look only towards themselves, oblivious of the rest of the world. Generation after generation, they became increasingly self-centred, and the economy of the country began to depend largely on the sale of arms and on exploitation of the rest of the world. The U.S. lost touch with the ground reality on Earth. It elected at the beginning of the 21st century a President whose knowledge of history and geography was confined to a place called the White House in which he lived and from where, he naively believed, he could control, direct and order the rest of the world which, he thought, was only awaiting his instructions.

A saga of lies and deceit

The foreign policy of the U.S. gradually became a saga of lies and deceit, of greed and vanity, of ignorance and insensitivity, of selfishness and cruelty, of victimisation and injustice, of bribery and exploitation. And mankind learnt, through the U.S. experience, that affluence and power, combined with ignorance, human insensitivity and selfishness, was the greatest WMD that humanity would ever experience.

It was this WMD that destroyed human civilisation on earth. Fortunately, for the human species, by this time, the international search for extra-terrestrial intelligence, also headquartered in the U.S., had discovered our planet, Eurotopea, as one where the atmosphere and other conditions conducive to life, were similar to those on Earth. Mankind also developed means of travelling to Eurotopea.

That is how our ancestors came here. We must continuously remind ourselves that we do not do a U.S. here, for there is no other planet to escape to that we know of as of now. That is why this lesson becomes important.

The ten cardinal sins of the U.S. that destroyed human civilisation on Earth are given below. (The term “assassins” is a corrupted form of “U.S.’s sins”). The examples given below are only illustrative and far from exhaustive.

1. Double standards: The U.S. continued to trade with, what it called, rogue nations, while preventing other countries around the world from doing such trading. It invoked the charter of the United Nations (U.N.) when such an action was in its interests but it totally ignored the U.N. and acted against its mandate whenever it wished to do so.

The U.S. had the Earth’s largest stock of WMD — nuclear, chemical and biological — and was the only country ever to use nuclear weapons, and the first one to use chemical weapons; yet it did not want any other nation to have any such weapon even for self defence, unless it had full control over the nation or a strategic alliance with it, as was the case with Israel and Japan.

The U.S. helped the governments (as in Chile) that violated all human rights when it suited it, but it did nothing against countries (such as South Africa during the days of apartheid) that violated basic human rights with a vengeance.

2. Lies: Exactly 500 years ago, the U.S. waged a devastating war against Iraq in which a large number of innocent men, women and children were killed and disabled for life, on the pretext that Iraq had stockpiles of WMD and was harbouring terrorists, knowing fully well that none of this was true. By this time, the U.S. came to be regarded as a model of spreading around the world inaccurate and false news through its control of the press and media.

3. Establishment of a nexus led by the U.S. between its own government, other pliable governments around the world, the multinational corporations (MNCs), and bureaucracy: The U.S. became the greatest bribe-giver in human history on Earth. It corrupted governments and bureaucracy all over the world, with enormous harm to the common people. It supported unethical multinational corporations like Union Carbide that led to the famous Bhopal Gas Tragedy in 1983, and Monsanto that (for example) attempted to control seed production in countries such as India through marketing seeds of doubtful quality for the Indian conditions.

It helped the multinationals, by controlling international organisations, to find a market in developing countries for those products that had either been banned or were considered inferior to similar newer products in the U.S. and in other developed countries that were its allies. Not only that, it prevented the production of these products within the developing countries by “bribing” the authorities concerned. An example would be the oral polio vaccine for which the market ceased to exist in the U.S. and other developed countries by the end of the 20th century; it was, therefore, recommended to be used in the developing countries in preference to the safer, better and more effective injectable polio vaccine that was being used in the developed countries.

4. Exploitation: It forced, through bribery of one kind or another, pliable governments and bureaucracy around the world to agree to signing international agreements such as GATT, TRIPS and UPOV which were heavily weighted in favour of the U.S. and the other developed countries at that time, and equally heavily weighted against the developing countries. The purpose of these agreements was to allow exploitation of developing countries by the U.S. and its allies in such a way that the U.S. eventually acquired total control over the destiny of the people of the developing countries and their enormous and enviable resources such as oil, mineral, and plant wealth.

5. Aggressive behaviour and lack of sensitivity: Between 1945 and 2003, the U.S. bombed China, Korea, Guatemala, Indonesia, Cuba, Congo, Peru, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, Grenada, Lebanon, Libya, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Iran, Panama, Iraq, Kuwait, Somalia, Bosnia, Sudan, Afghanistan and Yugoslavia. Not only did the U.S. invade Iraq in 2003 without any viable reason whatsoever, it also ensured the destruction of one of the most precious heritages of mankind in terms of manuscripts and artefacts dating back to several millennia. This act put to shame the burning of the Alexandria library by the Romans, some two millennia earlier.

6. Murders: One of the declared policies of the U.S. was to murder world leaders that were inconvenient. One well-known victim of such a policy was Allende of a small country called Chile.

7. Surreptitious control of agriculture: The U.S. realised that agriculture was the major means of sustenance of a large number (say 70 per cent) of people in the populous developing countries such as India and Nigeria. Therefore, to obtain control over these countries, one only needed to control their agriculture which, in practical terms, meant controlling seed and agro-chemicals production. The U.S. used every possible means — illegal, immoral or unethical — to acquire this control. Its companies attempted to market in the 1980s, totally ineffective agro-chemicals in India, through high-pressure advertising. If these fake chemicals had been used to the extent to which the U.S. companies wanted them to be used, the agricultural productivity in the country would have gone down to a level which would have demanded dependence on the U.S. for supply of food.

8. Violation of international law and of human rights: The U.S. violated the provisions of at least 15 articles of the international convention concerning prisoners, in its prison camp in Guantanamo Bay in the later half of the 20th century.

Even in the early part of the 21st century, the U.S. continued to provide a large subsidy to its agriculturists against the provisions of WTO which it had itself created. It waged in 2003 a war against Iraq that was illegal and against all international norms.

9. Creation of terrorists, guerrilla warfare, fundamentalists and dictators: The later half of the 20th century on Earth was characterised by the emergence of terrorists, guerrilla warfare, fundamentalists and dictators, and the U.S. was responsible for them all. It, with the help of another country called the U.K., created Israel, throwing out hundreds of thousands of Palestinians who were living in that area for thousands of years. That led to the evolution of terrorism as Palestinians had no other recourse to fight the above inhuman and illegal action. Later, the U.S. invaded Vietnam and lost badly there, but only after Vietnamese had invented guerrilla warfare. The U.S. created terrorists and dictators like Osama bin Laden of Afghanistan, Ayatullah Komeni of Iran, and Saddam Hussein of Iraq; it is amusing that, in the later years, the U.S. waged war against the same people that it had brought to power when it suited its interests.

10. Victimisation and intolerance of dissent: The early 1950s in the U.S. were characterised by the emergence of a doctrine called McCarthyism which called for liquidation (de facto or de jure) of anyone suspected of any contact or relationship with any other person suspected of having any connection or sympathies with any communist organisation or ideology.

After the U.S. mounted the above-mentioned attack on Iraq in 2003, over 90 per cent of the people of the world, including people of most of the developed countries, became disillusioned with the U.S., and came together, cutting across all other barriers such as political, social, linguistic or economic, to oppose the U.S.’s war on Iraq. It is then that, as a retaliation, the war against the people of the planet Earth by the U.S. started, which ended in decimation of culture after culture, civilisation after civilisation, people after people, and country after country. In this process, as is a natural law, the aggressor was also dismembered, disfigured and destroyed. Eventually, following an internal revolt, the U.S. also ceased to exist.

Fortunately, a group of wise people, representing fairly the then human civilisation on Earth, had anticipated this course of events and prepared to leave Earth for our planet in an operation which would go down in the history of our universe as one of the most daring and effective, that saved human civilisation.
