|I meet Lluis Foix in the early hours of the morning, smiling as always, and I wonder him how much occident will take to acknowledge that it has lost. Lluís comes from the United States, where he has followed the elections, and I argued that the current economic crisis can not be resolved by the United States and Europe alone, but they need to China, Russia, the Arabs, perhaps to Latin America. This fact proves that the American empire is finished. |
- Empires -said-Lluís- last two centuries, and the United States carries one. Do not think they are finished. Americans are free, and they have just demonstrated by choosing an African American president. Their resilience, to change chip, is enormous, because they're frees. The Chinese, however, are slaves; nothing can be expected of them in this situation.
- And the Arab countries, who have the money to lift the West of the crisis?
- That is another thing. We'll see.
