History Does Not Favor Humanity - Empires Have Never Favored Humanity

Reader comment on item: Iran's Christian Boom
in response to reader comment: History supports me

One of the greatest failings found in history is the perception that any government cares, from empires of the ancient to the empires of more modern developments of nations, that humanity has always been targeted for either dominance or failure, the innate rebellious nature of mankind either found in subjugation or abject slavery dependent upon the nature of the governing body; either a single autonomous leader with a megalomaniac penchant of ambitions of empire; or in more modern terms, a religious or secular governing body that is led by a small 'triumvirate' of small minds that have seduced a minority of lesser minds into believing that social justice is humanly derived in contrast to the truth; such premises have been found deviously wanting for humanity to survive under human governance.
Literally, the mounds of rubble that lead to this conclusion are world wide, from the ruins of Egypt and the Middle East to the decimated cities of Europe and the Urals after WWII, to the former native tribal lands of Manhattan.
Now, to Reader Banerjee's contention, that history supports his contention that Zionism will fall prey to the potential powers of empires of the future: does he expect this to occur in his lifetime? The true evidence suggests otherwise, which see. He apparently does not see that the Iranian Islamic Regime's hold in the region is exquisitely limited; that they cannot by themselves manage the power required to hold individual sway in their efforts to depose the Zionist promise to Israel that the Temple Mount is the key to Middle East peace, but under the premise of the Tanakh, and not replacement religionist ideas to the contrary.
He evidently does not think, or maybe he does, yet is unsure, that Israel may yet break free and become the dominant power in the Holy Land and all the other nations, including Russia, Iran, and the lands of Tarshish, the near East, and China, will be brought to the land promised to Abraham and his seed for the Eternal Sovereign of Israel to finalize the transaction that was commenced from the land of Ur to the current day.
The further question is posed; who does Reader Banerjee, or humanity, think is in charge of all of this: the Mullahs of the Iranian Islamic Regime, the Caliph of Turkey, the leader of the Russian CIS, the Chinese Communist Party heads, or even the disaffected American 46th Administrative Chief Executive or those socialist democrats that are running that show?
Inquiring minds want to know. Otherwise, history will be bringing a surprise.
