The demise of the United States as the global superpower could come far more quickly than anyone could have imagined. A realistic assessment of domestic and global trends suggests that within 10 or 15 years from now, we could witness the full collapse of the American century.

Despite the aura of omnipotence that most empires project, a look at history should remind us that they are fragile organisms. So delicate is their ecology of power that when things start to go bad, empires can unravel in a hurry. For example, look at fall of the Soviet Union from 1989-1991, or the fall of Great Britain in the 17-year period between World War I and World War II.

It seems that the once all-powerful USA could suffer a global stroke sometime during the 2020s or even sooner.

Although future historians may identify the Bush administration, the invasion of Afghanistan (2001), and the invasion of Iraq (2003) as the start of America’s downfall, we believe that the real starting point of America’s decline was born out of the Islamic Revolution in Iran (1979).

We view America’s decline as a global power as a present reality. Should we not prepare for its fall? Let us prepare and work for a new global harmony—a wholistic world vision. We invite everyone to planetary transformation; a global re-design. It is possible. It is the impossible dream.

We see the 21st century as the evolutionary century. The evolution of Muslims is particularly necessary if Islam is to play its proper role in the coming future.

“Ye are the best of Peoples, evolved for mankind, enjoining what is right, forbidding what is wrong, and believing in Allah…” (Al ‘Imran, 3:110)

If Muslims are to live out their role as khaira Ummah—the “best of peoples” or the “best community”—the Islamic movement must consciously subject itself to an evolutionary process. That is, Muslims must rise to the occasion of our time. We must, as a movement and as a people, evolve to the level necessary to develop the institutions in all areas which would propel us to emerge out of the gravity of self-imposed stagnation.

Toward this goal, we have opened two branch offices for the Islamic Institute for Counter Zionist American Psychological Warfare. We have some exciting and important projects in the making, including: a College of Islamic Movement Studies, which will offer classes in Arabic, practical Qur’an and Hadith studies, Akhlaq (Islamic character), historical study of various Islamic movements, and strategic management under conditions of repression; a high-quality physical fitness program which will be results-oriented; and a Department of Strategic and Islamic Studies which will focus on analysis of world events affecting Muslims and strategic planning for the making of a better world.

A proper analysis of the situation of Muslims locally, nationally, and internationally, would show us that Muslims are not in control of their lives, situations, or events. In selecting and defining a future for ourselves, we must be very brave and innovative. Without a plan or strategy, we are subject to wherever the winds of change take us; we surrender our self-determination and limit ourselves to prevalent trends, currents, and circumstances. We must remind ourselves: Our future should not be determined by our past—it should be determined by our imagination.

Imagination is key. In order to succeed as Islamic workers, we can use our imagination to visualize the proper Islamic movement for this evolutionary century. Let us see ourselves as great problem-solvers and great communicators of truth, with the God-given ability to transform and re-create any kind of society we wish for.
