Nivaldo Cordeiro - Obama desarma EUA


O assunto recordou-me parte da obra de Robert Heinlein, em particular um dos livros cujo título não consigo de momento recordar, mas aqui fica um excerto da Wikipedia sobre a geo-política terrestre abordada num outro livro dele.

Earth politics and background history

The novel indicates that Earth had experienced a nuclear world war (the "Wet Firecracker War") in the past century, although no significant traces of devastation are apparent at the time of the novel's setting.

Other changes include unification of the entire North American continent under a successor government to the United States, and political unification of South America, Europe, and Africa into mega-states. The Soviet Union seems to have lost the land east of the Urals to China into a rump state, and China has conquered all of East Asia, Southeast Asia, eastern Australia, and New Zealand (deporting unwanted people to Luna in the process). This Chinese aggrandizement is similar to that described in Tunnel in the Sky and, to a lesser extent, Sixth Column. The militarily dominant nations seem to be North America and China. India is overcrowded but seems able to obtain much of the wheat shipments from Luna.

It is suggested that the Western nations, including North America, have become corrupt and authoritarian, while holding on to the vestiges of the pre-war democratic idealism in propaganda and popular culture. China is portrayed as plainly and unabashedly despotic, but no less technically advanced than the West. The Soviet Union seems to have relatively little influence, whereas the Lunar Authority itself is portrayed as corrupt. Most of Earth seems to have been split into several large nations, most joined together by the Federated Nations. They include the North American Directorate, Great China, Soviet Union, Pan Africa, Brazil (hinted to include all of South America), and a European coalition (named "Mitteleuropa" in Chapter 25, Paragraph #8). Individual nations such as Chad (the first to recognize Luna), India, and Egypt are also named.

O Nivaldo Cordeiro deu-me ouvidos:

lá retirou aquela moldura muito feia colocada atrás da cabeça; sentou-se melhor na cadeira, não se vendo as costas da poltrona; arranjou uma camisa toda prá frentex e abriu o colarinho e….. reduziu consideravelmente o tempo de antena. Fantástico.

Pena é que continua vago e impreciso! E não diz como é que o Obama desarmou a América? Quanto é que os americanos gastam em armamento, em comparação com o resto do mundo? Assim só para a gente ter uma ideia…
