For sometime the nation’s most respectable politicians have suggested and warned that real power is not in the hands of political leaders, but with a group of well moneyed elite in the financial, banking and war profiting industries.
The 2008 financial crisis presented a tremendous opportunity for America and the globe. We could have prosecuted and harshly punished the financial engineers, taken some harsh medicine and restored free markets along with common sense regulations. Instead we went in the opposite direction and doubled down on the poison, admittedly giving the illusion of economic recovery. Since then we have injected Trillions of dollars and other currencies into the markets all backed by debt. It is debt with interest that ordinary citizens will have to pay. At very least, this guarantees a lower quality of life and a heavy burden of increased taxes and fees with less to show for it. This has been a boon for the financial industries and markets, especially those at the top. With virtually unlimited liquidity, speculation has run wild across the globe looking for yield. Very little of this money has been put into productive use or in anyway that helps the average global citizen. However, things are quickly getting out of control. Look as you may, there is no equity or yield left in the world, and debt levels are now several times higher than global GDP at best. Every market is distorted; stocks and bonds, art and housing, nothing has been left unmolested. Governments have been doing there best to open new financial markets as we saw in this country with healthcare and things like carbon credit trading in Europe. Everything is quickly becoming financial-ized from education –to- your own paycheck (payday loans). We ordinary citizens are being tax and debt farmed by those who hold us in contempt, despite any rhetoric that appears to be virtuous.
We have reached a point where the debt and liabilities of the world cannot be paid. If we returned to a “normal” market, the house of cards would collapse in dramatic fashion. The economy is based on debt, artificially low interest rates, and constant injection of liquidity by central banks (creating more debt). With utter mathematical certainty this system must, and will, fall. The only question is not if, but when? Possibly soon.
After the fall, the mass of humanity will become a much greater burden on already a burdened planet. As idle and hungry stock our purpose and need will diminish. We will need to be put-down and allow the ground to go fallow to replenish. Those that are left will and must be controlled be it through surveillance, force, technology integration, drugs or propaganda. My guess is they will be convinced that this is progress, moving forward and hope and change they can believe in, and that all are now finally equal.
As the economy collapses, something other than the truth will need to be blamed. They will need to convince the public that everything was going great up until the War (?). A global nuclear war would be a perfect scapegoat and achieve multiple objectives. These objectives could also be achieved through a disease epidemic, ensuring only the healthiest stock remains.
This is my personal conspiracy theory but I am not alone. Politicians, philosophers and futurists in history and today have been trying to our calling attention to this. If one can remove the veil of media, political and economic manipulation it is not that hard to see. War has already begun through financial instruments and by proxy, militaries and provocations are ramping up, the police have been trained and militarized, surveillance is ubiquitous, false rhetoric and blame is spreading. I hope that this is simply a by-product of reading too much Huxley and Orwell, an interest in history, social science and economics, and perhaps propensity to indulge in too many “conspiracy” articles and documentaries. It sounds absolutely crazy!
“The very word “secrecy” is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and to secret proceedings…Our way of life is under attack. Those who make themselves our enemy are advancing around the globe…no war ever posed a greater threat to our security. If you are awaiting a finding of “clear and present danger,” then I can only say that the danger has never been more clear and its presence has never been more imminent…For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies primarily on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence–on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations. Its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried, not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no rumor is printed, no secret is revealed.”
― President John F. Kennedy
“I sincerely believe… that banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies.” —Thomas Jefferson
“Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people. To destroy this invisible government, to befoul the unholy alliance between corrupt business and corrupt politics is the first task of the statesmanship of the day.”— Theodore Roosevelt
