Explaining the CFG Home PageThe West & the Third World
Muslims & Jews in the World-System
The Cambridge Forecast Group Home Page
(www.cambridgeforecast.org) looks as shown above.
The first image shows three worlds or globes abutting.These three worlds are:
1. The West
2. The Third World
3.Israel and the neo-conservatives.
The site argues that World 3 (ie. Israel and the neo-conservatives in the above schema) is blocking the integration of Worlds 1. and 2. as defined above.
The four thumbnails you see below the "Three Worlds" image give you a "flow chart" of the CFG approach:
1. you examine the world with long-term historical trends in mind.
(the eye looking for intelligence)
2. you ask how the changes affect the world-system (the gears meshing)
3. you map these changes into the Middle East since the
Israel/Palestine problem is the hinge political problem of this era.
4. you triangulate into the future and get a sense of the pathways to the year 2016.
