Subject. The article describes the current exhaustion of the imperial power ecumene of the human population and the transition to the following supraconstructive phase of the national amalgamation, i.e. the establishment of macroregional integration units (macros). The establishment of macros is assumed to drive the world into a new geopolitical reality with a new hierarchy of the global cross-country exploitation.
Objectives. The study determines strategic and tactic goals of the sub-American macros and the entire Pan-American geopolitical world in the Pan-American project of exploiting hegemony.
Methods. The study draws upon the author's historical and remembered representation of the human life order. According to this concept, the present and the future of the human life get adjusted (get reproduced and renewed) by human memory reflecting on the overall past life, whether conscious and unconscious.
Results. I pointed out the archetype of the global continuity of nature and people. The existence of the above archetype means that the humankind cannot become wealthy by progressively exploiting the nature. This explains the existence and inescapability of the cross-community exploitation archetype, which does not depend on the archetype of cross-rank and cross-class intracommunity exploitation. The article demonstrates the historical development of the hierarchy (subordination) of amalgamation levels of the global cross-community exploitation. I describe the current exhaustion of the imperial power ecumene and the start of the transition to the establishment of macroregional integration units (macros). The sub-American and European macros were spotlighted. The article unveils the Pan-American project of exploiting hegemony implying that the Pan-American geopolitical world has to strategically deter the European Union and China as its macroregional geopolitical rivals.
Conclusions and Relevance. Independent Russia historically prevents the Pan-American world from putting the deterring pressure. Therefore, the Pan-American world needs to take undermining efforts against Russia in order to take over the total control over its natural resources and supranatural infrastructure as soon as possible. Russia is stated to be able to stand against the threat, only if it resorts to the amalgamation specialization and combination as part of its own closest integration and far cooperation projects.
