Can the biggest beneficiaries hold onto the world order? Will poorer people of color break free? Or will 'Mother Nature' call 'game over'?

“Breaking free” sounds pretty militarist to me.

For them to be anti-militarist, clearly those people need to immediately surrender without fighting back.

Will the earthworms ever be safe above ground from the ravenous robins?

As long as there are politicians in the world like Biden and his pukes, yes...the biggest beneficiaries CAN hold onto the world order.

I’m pretty optimistic about a leftist coalition between South American countries.

The beneficiaries of the "world order" are the Globalists. Politicians from around the world...and from the US, in particular...are making sure the Globalists are benefiting. After all, that's what those politicians are paid to do.

Pretty nebulous.

Which "colonies"?

There are relatively few left.

Quoting Wikipedia:

Modern colonialism
In the Colonial Era, colonialism in this context refers mostly to Western European countries' colonization of lands mainly in the Americas, Africa, Asia and Oceania. The main European countries active in this form of colonization included Spain, Portugal, France, the Kingdom of England (later Great Britain), the Netherlands, and the Kingdom of Prussia (now mostly Germany), and, beginning in the 18th century, the United States.
----


Colonization, or colonisation refers to large-scale population movements where the migrants maintain strong links with their—or their ancestors'—former country, gaining significant privileges over other inhabitants of the territory by such links. When colonization takes place under the protection of colonial structures, it may be termed settler colonialism. This often involves the settlers dispossessing indigenous inhabitants, or instituting legal and other structures which systematically disadvantage them.[1]

In its basic sense, colonization can be defined as the process of establishing foreign control over target territories or people for the purpose of cultivation, often through establishing colonies and possibly by settling them.[2]

In colonies established by Western European countries in the Americas, Australia and New Zealand, settlers (supplemented by Central European, Eastern European, Asian and African people) eventually formed a large majority of the population after killing, assimilating or driving away indigenous peoples.

In other places, Western European settlers formed minority groups, often dominating the non-Western European majority.[3]

During the European colonization of Australia, New Zealand and other places in Oceania, explorers and colonists often regarded the landmasses as terra nullius, meaning "empty land" in Latin.[4] Owing to the absence of Western farming techniques, Europeans deemed the land unaltered by mankind and therefore treated it as uninhabited, despite the presence of indigenous populations. In the 19th century, laws and ideas such as Mexico's General Colonization Law and the United States' manifest destiny doctrine encouraged further colonization of the Americas, already started in the 15th century. Despite countless declarations and referendums from the UN on the independence of colonial countries and peoples, implemented since 1946, there are still over 60 colonies- sometimes designated as territories- in the world, including Puerto Rico, Guam, and Bermuda.

What you call globalists I'd call colonialists and capitalists.

Puerto Rico, Guam, and Bermuda consistently vote AGAINST being independent. Should they be forced to be independent against their will?

I hope the people can lead the way instead of the people that govern because some colonialist wrote "We The People."

You realize a significant element of these movement in Latin America are for these countries to build strong militaries to defend themselves from attack by America, something you define as “militarism”, yes?
