The old order of the world is being disrupted – with all its systems and structures being shaken to the foundations. Built on the exploitation and annihilation of native cultures, this destruction is being projected as a heroic struggle for the liberation of the world from tyranny. A century ago one such plot was launched by Subhash Chandra Bose to bring down the British Empire. The question is, who is driving this change now and to what end? More importantly, where does India stand in this whirlwind? Below is a short glimpse into this worldview by one of the leading players in the game.
Disrupting the Old World Order
The international order is being shaken in an unprecedented manner, above all with, if I may say so, by the great upheaval that is undoubtedly taking place for the first time in our history, in almost every field and with a profoundly historic magnitude. The first thing we observe is a major transformation, a geopolitical and strategic re-composition. We are undoubtedly experiencing the end of Western hegemony over the world.
We were accustomed to an international order which, since the 18th century, rested on a Western hegemony, mostly French in the 18th century, by the inspiration of the Enlightenment; then mostly British in the 19th century thanks to the Industrial Revolution and, finally, mostly American in the 20th century thanks to the two great conflicts and the economic and political domination of this power.
Things change. And they are now deeply shaken by the mistakes of Westerners in certain crises, by the choices that have been made by Americans for several years which did not start with this administration, but which lead to revisiting certain implications in conflicts in the Middle East and elsewhere, and to rethinking a deep, diplomatic and military strategy, and sometimes elements of solidarity that we thought were intangible for eternity, even if we had constituted together in geopolitical moments that have changed.
And then there is the emergence of new powers whose impact we have probably underestimated for a long time. China is at the forefront, but also the Russian strategy, which has, it must be said, been pursued more successfully in recent years. I will come back to that. India that is emerging, these new economies that are also becoming powers not only economic but political and that think themselves, as some have written, as real “civilizational states” which now come not only to shake up our international order but who also come to weigh in on the economic order and to rethink the political order and the political imagination that goes with it, with much dynamism and much more inspiration than we have.
Look at India, Russia and China. They have a much stronger political inspiration than Europeans today. They think about our planet with a true logic, a true philosophy, an imagination that we’ve lost a little bit.
The above is an excerpt from an astonishing speech delivered by the President of France, Emanuel Macron in front of an assembly of ambassadors on August 27, 2019.
Now before you draw any conclusions here is a brief profile of Emmanuel Macron.
Robbery of the Century
Main article: Macron-Libya & The Rothschild Connection
From 2008 to 2012, Macron had a stellar (as well as suspect) career at Rothschild Bank, the financial empire that controls the central banks in almost every other country in the world. The House of Rothschild is also one of the controlling families of the East India Company.
In 2011, Rothschild docks in Libya, while the war is still being fought out. At the same time, the sharks circling the US and European banking world make the biggest robbery of the century, confiscating 150 billion dollars of Libyan sovereign funds. The four years that Macron trained at Rothschild provided him with an entrée into the elite of global finance, where big moves such as the demolition of the Libyan State are planned. He then crosses over to politics, making for himself a stellar (as well as suspect) career, first as the Under Secretary General of the Elysée, then as the Finance Minister.
In 2016, in just a few months, he creates his own party, En Marche!, an “instant party” supported and funded by powerful multinational, financial and media groups that clear his path to the presidency. But is it all about Macron? Behind his attention-seeking antics, lurk not just French national interests. The booty to share out in Libya is enormous: the biggest oil reserves in the whole of Africa and vast reserves of natural gas; the immense reserves of fossil water from the cloud stratum, the white gold in sight, more precious than black gold; the Libyan territory itself of primary geostrategic importance at the intersection between the Mediterranean, Africa and the Middle East.
It is “the risk that France is exercising a strong hegemony over our former colony”, warned Analisi Difesa, emphasising the importance of an imminent Italian naval expedition to Libya. A call to the “national pride” of an Italy that is demanding its slice when the colonial powers of old divide up anew, a former Italian colony.
Before anything else, François Hollande made an assessment of the destruction of Libya. The Jamahiriya was in possession of a treasure evaluated at a minimum of 150 billion dollars. Officially, NATO had blocked, or had ordered the blockage of, at least a third of it. What happened to the rest? The Gaddafists believed they could use this money to finance the Resistance in the long term. But in April, Prefect Edouard Lacroix, who had received access to a part of these investments, died in one day from a « hurricane cancer », while the ex-Minister for Oil, Choukri Ghanem, was found drowned in Vienna. With the aid of French Minister of Finance Pierre Moscovici, and economic advisor to the Elysée Emmanuel Macron, and several investment bankers, the US Treasury made off with the loot – the robbery of the century, 100 billion dollars.
The kicker here is that this Libyan booty was also shared with one of the most prominent Indian politician and Prime Ministerial candidate as well. But that story is for another day.
Asia for Asians
Talking of disruption, the Gaddafi government held 143 tons of Gold. This Gold was intended to be used to establish a Pan-African currency based on the Libyan Gold Dinar. This move would have knocked-off the Petrodollar system from the reserve currency and was tantamount to the actual disruption of the world order. Hence, the liberation of Libya.
Meanwhile, there are also proposals for an Asian Gold backed Currency. The Malaysian Prime Minister has proposed an Asian Gold backed Currency against Dollar dominance. Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad on Thursday (May 30) proposed to create a new “special currency” for the region based on gold, replacing the existing currency trading regime.
Speaking at a dialogue session at the 25th International Conference on The Future of Asia (Nikkei Conference), he claimed that a regional currency based on gold would be more stable. The Malaysian prime minister said that by pegging the new currency to gold, it could be used to evaluate the import and export activities among East Asian countries.
Just because that one country is affected, there is infection to the other countries. Malaysia was very stable way back in 1997 (during the Asian financial crisis) … but because of the problem occurring in Thailand, they said we must peg the Malaysian currency (to the US dollar).
What happened? The currency traders sold the Malaysian currency and the value of Malaysian currency depreciated.
This currency trading is not something that is healthy because it is not about the (economic) performance of countries but it is about manipulation.
If we are trying to promote our own currency, there will be conflict.
But if we have a common currency for East Asia, a common trading currency that is not used in each country but for the purpose of settlement trade only, then there will be stability.
Trying to promote the yen or the yuan is not the way to go.
Dr Mahathir also noted that the global market is now tied to the US dollar, and this makes the currency prone to manipulation.
Excerpt from the book India in Cognitive Dissonance
All the economic indicators and the leading economists and financial experts are saying that the Anglo-American world has blown-up its gold reserves. That is why neither Bank of England nor Federal Reserve want any audit, because it will prove that there is no gold there. Many economists actually suspect that the gold mining figures themselves might have been cooked up.
The main cause of the financial ruin in the interval 2008-2012 was this currency manipulation, without any Gold left to back it up. If the countries are not of European origin, they are all subjected to what we can now call as Gold Wars or Pipeline Wars in which Iraq and Libya are knocked out and promptly their gold-reserves were confiscated. This project was promptly halted in its tracks with the entry of the Russians in Syria. And the world is witnessing the similar brink-of-war situation with the other four powers.
So, where does India stand in all this, if at all. Well, let’s see.
India & the Gold Wars
Excerpt from the book India in Cognitive Dissonance
From the internationally-available figures, of the 650 tons of gold produced annually, 80% flows into Asian Markets. Of this 80%, 70% flows into India. This has been the case since Independence. This will put an estimate of 15,000 tons as the minimum amount of Gold imported into India post-Independence, worth about 500 billion USD. No big deal here. But there is something else that we should look at. That is the question of the amount of Gold that existed in India pre-Independence. This figure will turn out to have meaning and strategic importance. Let us estimate below.
The question of 'threat to life' of our RBI Governor and the assassination of German Deutsche Bank Chief Alfred HerrHausen.

Let us look at just one simple example. When the Kingdom of Amaravati fell to the British, it was then looted. At the time the Capital of that small tiny Kingdom, all houses and Palaces were gold plated. The British cavalry used 7000 horses to carry away the loot from the City. We learn about this from the records kept in Telugu, as well as from records kept by the French sources. But we never read about this in our History books. Why?
Another simple example: when the grandchildren of a mere clerk in the East India Company in today’s England were running short of pocket money, they merely opened one of the thousands of warehouses containing the loot of the East India Company, and took out six small items. These few items were put on auction in the famous London auction houses of Christie’s and Sotheby’s that fetched 5 million pounds. This, we may add, was splashed across every major Indian news media with great pomp – which speaks volumes of the credibility and competence of Indian mainstream media.
So, what must have been the total size of the warehouse and what figure would we arrive at if we added the figures for the unknown thousands of such warehouses that hold the over 100-year loot by EIC sailors, clerks, officers, Lords, Governor Generals who worked in India? That will give a base-point of how much money was looted from India – since it was this Gold, Resources and Knowledge looted from British colonies, specifically India and China that laid the foundations of the modern banking system and the modern world itself.
Hijacking of Indian Civilization
We may specifically stress here that this one-way transfer of wealth initiated by the East India Company has not stopped yet. Infact, secret meetings in London in the 90s, just before India was thrown open to the EICs turned MNCs, charted our precisely the blueprint for the Return of the East India Company to India and from here to the other developing nations.
Moverover, the same British auction houses of Christie’s and Sotheby’s are not only involved in what is dubbed as one of the biggest financial frauds in India, but are also smuggling our ancient artifacts, temple idols, rare manuscripts even today in broad daylight and selling the looted stuff in front of the entire world. More on the issue can be read in our reports – Nirav Modi & The Smuggling Of National Treasure and the Smuggling Syndicate of Tirumala Tirupati Temples.
This issue was specifically raised by GreatGameIndia personally with many concerned decision makers including the head priest of TTD, the state’s Intelligence Chief, heads of Archeological Survey of India and the Prime Minister’s Office. Although the response we received was at best uninspiring, we understand this as a condition arisen due a lack of strategic culture and correct intelligence orientation required for our decision makers at every level to combat the challenges of the Globalized world. That being said, the condition can easily be remedied with an uninterrupted flow of actionable intelligence – lookout for our new book on this specific issue.
GreatGameIndia would urge the concerned citizens of India to demand the answers to questions raised in this report from the Finance Ministry or the Government of India or from whoever claims to be a nationalist patriot. For those of you who seek knowledge beyond the daily rhetoric, we would point you to our radically thought-provoking book India in Cognitive Dissonance.
