It is the hard truth. At best there can be a multipolar world but no one can actually pose a threat to the west. For the 'non-west' is a mess. Look at BRICS. Two members in BRICS can't even solve their border issues and they are gonna take on the west? Most of the non-western world is primitive and politically naive. Besides, they can only fight among themselves. Look at how Muslim countries in the ME fight against each other. Or how China acts like a bully with its neighbors. Non-western countries are basically high school brats - silly and irrelevant - whereas the west is Al Capone. It is a no contest. So people should work toward establishing a multipolar world where power will at least be diluted. In short, more globalization, less nationalism. Then there will be some sort of equality.
