Update (29 March 2023)

I spent some time to reread the research articles I uploaded to Digital Library IV. The ones I chose to upload were related to a topic that intrigued me the most, which is Hamiltonian perspectives on Technology. It has been three years since the Coronavirus Pandemic, nearly fifteen years after the Great Recession and sixteen after the onset of the Subprime Mortgage Crisis which caused the Great Recession. The economic discourse around the world, especially in the Western world, was shaped by that financial crisis and the other crises which occurred as a consequence. Lurking behind the rhetorical appeals to Capitalism and Socialism is an ongoing to revisit certain ideas related to Hamiltonianism. There is a desire to reindustrialize with new technologies and protect related Industries in the Manufacturing Sector against foreign competition and industrial espionage.

This desire was caused by the worldwide predominance of Neoliberalism in the several decades after the Death of Bretton Woods. As one should know by reading The Fourth Estate, the Death of Bretton Woods coincided with the occurrence of Deindustrialization in the Western world caused by Automation and Globalization. Where Socialistic opposition to Neoliberalism among nations did not amount to worldwide opposition, various Nationalisms took the initiative from the 1990s onward. From the economic scheme of things, Nationalists around the world saw Neoliberalism as a threat to both National Sovereignty and National Consciousness, as evidenced by the waves of Anti-Globalization that materialized since the 1990s. Neoliberalism, in its pursuit of “the greatest Quantity of Kapital for the least Quantity of Schuld,” has also sought to Liberalize entire nations, forcing its Totalities to adopt Social Liberalization and Political Liberalization alongside amid Economic Liberalization. Globalization is the vehicle through which this process has been occurring for the past fifty years.

The newfound resolve of the Nationalisms is continuing to grow as Neoliberalism falters. Nationalistic ideas which were unthinkable in the 1980s, 1990s or 2000s are now entertainable in the 2020s. Even the Socialisms have found favorable ground. Will these political forces reach critical mass by the middle of the 21st century? The first twenty years of the 21st century already ended. This next phase, as I have argued elsewhere on this Blog, will go on to define the latter half of the century.
