Reflection of Post-Coronavirus in Disintegration of the West
Many experts in the world in recent decade have reached this conclusion that capitalism is on the verge of the collapse. Inspired by such expert opinions, the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution almost eight years ago in his remarks stated, “The world is currently in a state of change. Global structures are changing.” He then pointed to four signs of change in the global geometry, including Islamic Awakening, the U.S. failure in spreading its hegemony in the West Asian region, ambiguous future of European Union and decline of America’s credibility.

We should take into consideration those signs mentioned by the Supreme Leader as four trends for development, and study their processes in pre- and post-Coronavirus eras. Definitely we will notice that the trend of religion-seeking identity and reliance on Islam has become upward and its signs can be apparently seen in spread of Islamic Awakening and achievements of the Resistance Axis in the region.
The U.S. three-layer plans, comprised of the Greater Middle East Project, New Middle East and proxy war for dominating the West Asia, have fully failed and the U.S. is now on the verge of expulsion from the region.
The trend of ambiguities in the political and philosophical future and worldview of western civilization has been accelerated in a way that even some western officials and theoreticians have acknowledged it. The Coronavirus pandemic has accelerated the pace of this trend and with a quasi-collapse in western economies, both Europe and the U.S., bubble capitals in many countries have been burst and dissipated.
The decline in credibility of world’s giant economy in the West, namely, the U.S., has become evident and fast during President Barack Obama, especially in President Donald Trump’s era. The U.S. has fully lost its capability in managing big currents. Europe is also in the same condition. After the Brexit and UK’s exit from the EU, Polish President of the European Council Mr. Donald Tusk had interesting remarks about it which were welcomed by the media. Tusk said, “Brexit could be the beginning of the destruction of not only the EU but also Western political civilization in its entirety.”
Post-Coronavirus has paved the ground for bankruptcy of Italy with over $1600b debts. Except Italy, countries like Spain, Portugal and Greece, because of getting heavy loans from rich countries, will lose their saved assets and they will not be able to repay their debts. Symbols of unification and unity for reliance on segmenting the market like the World Trade Organization and the likes are all on the verge of collapse. The post-Coronavirus condition has put the identity and existence of Europe on the verge of collapse. The post-Coronavirus condition has engaged the U.S. with its hardest social, economic and political crises.
The Instagram page of Forbes magazine wrote that Donald Trump as a big-earner financier has lost one-third of his capitals worth one trillion in just 20 days. Israel and the U.S. have started mulling an escape-forward game to avoid their collapses. Zionist regime’s missile attacks on Syria is a proof for it. The provocative flights of the U.S. fighter jets in Iraq’s sky also show this belief that organizing the public opinion in western countries has lost its control, and independence-seeking layers in Europe and the U.S. are on the rise. And this means west’s hegemony has fully cracked and it seems even escape-forward game is unable to come to their rescue. Of course, we should predict that if the U.S. commits another mistake in Iraq or in the region, it will accelerate its expulsion from the region. The consequences of assassinating Martyr Qassem Soleimani, Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis and his comrades will force the U.S. to leave the West Asia like what their British predecessors did after the World War II and left the region.
Now and regarding the Supreme Leader’s predictions, today and even less than 10 years after his remarks, we are observing some signs of this development. God Almighty has promised that the leaders of power and wealth will be replaced with Salehin (the righteous) and who is more Saleh (righteous) than Imam Zaman (A) to deserve it.
