Disclaimer: This post is modelled directly on my post for the “The Arab world”. It is an exercise to see how ridiculous that post was.
The Anglo world is made up of those countries where English is the main language. Most belong to the Commonwealth. The Anglo world we know grew out of the British Empire.
The Anglo world currently has about 400 million people, twice the size of the Arab world. Yet it accounts for almost half of the world’s military spending.
The Anglo world is not the same as the Christian world. Only one Christian in six is Anglo. Anglos were not converted to Christianity till the 600s, by Irish and Roman missionaries.
Also, not all Anglos are Christians. Some are Jewish, like some in New York and California. Most Anglos who come to live in Israel are Jewish.
The glory days were from the 1800s to the 2000s, in the days of the British and American empires. England was at the centre of it all and had some of the greatest minds ever.
The British Empire came out of nowhere, as many do: in 400 years the Anglos went from being an island of people always fighting among themselves to rulers of an empire on which the sun never set, taking in most of the countries along the sea from London to Hong Kong.
For hundreds of years the Anglo world was far in advance of the East: it gave the East plastic, Coca-Cola, computers, Darwin and Western science, nylon, Internet porn and much else. Not that Anglos necessarily invented all these things: they got Internet porn from the Netherlands and plastic from Belgium.
In time the British Empire fell. Among its successor states are Nigeria, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sudan, Egypt, Israel, Iraq, Kuwait, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Malaysia, Tanzania, Kenya, Guyana, Sri Lanka, etc. About 58 countries, almost a third of the world’s 193.
The American Empire picked up where the British left off, at least in the Arab world. It supports Israel. Blindly. It supports bad government throughout the region, especially in Egypt and Saudi Arabia. It has made a complete mess of Iraq. So when it says it wants to bring peace and democracy to the Arab world it is not believed.
America will fall too. Its undoing will probably be the Persian Gulf falling into unfriendly hands. It is overly dependent on the oil that flows through it. America makes the region weak and easy to dominate by keeping it divided, violent and on edge. That has satisfied its war industry’s need for permanent war and rumours of war, but it has also has led to 9/11 and an Iran bent on nuclear weapons.
If the Anglo world goes the way of the Arab world – there is no reason to suppose that it will not in time – then it will be cut up into a string of petty vassal states dominated by foreigners.
