You know the expressions “as well be hanged for a sheep as a lamb” and “if we’re treading on thin ice, we might as well dance”?
Thinking of the near future used to be called forward planning and all good firms tended to do it. So let’s do a bit of it. At my place, I quoted various economic pundits about what’s going down and it seems we’re about to have “a Lehman type event”, a Euro crash and a new currency of sorts. One pundit mentioned the socializing of the banks by the constituent states of Europe.
When all is going well and there’s money to be made, it’s called the EU. When it all falls down around their ears, then it’s left to the national governments, suddenly resurrected from the dead, to carry the can, as a national crisis, not an EU one.
There are others who predicted all that is happening long ago. They weren’t economists, just historians and it only needed looking at the major crises going back 150 years to conclude that boom and bust are a banker fiction, a game to ensure continued profits for the favoured moneymen at the top.
If you’re caught up in the boom-and-bust dogma, that the market moves in cycles of its own volition, then that’s fine and you’ll lose all, regain some and happily go along in reconstruction until the next bust … and so on. Then it will all suddenly end and you’ll be flabbergasted – hey, they took my market away.
If you’re not caught up in that, not taken in by it and are aware that the thing is as fixed as a mafia poker game, if you know who the main players are, on the grounds that the major players have even written about these things themselves [!] , then it becomes far easier to see what’s going down. The more serious pieces [inc. series] on my old blog were about that issue and quoted many of these people in the game.
Now, it’s one thing, as Wolfie was wont to say, in effect, for these oligarchically run networks to have these dastardly plans for controlling the common man but the bottom line is that they’re just plain incompetent beneath their
BS rhetoric and plans – always plans.
Still, the plan [as of the 1980s and being spoken of in a year 2000 Canadian interview], went something like this:
A lot of the current U.S. leadership will be in Europe when the change occurs, and many have homes there. They will be “changing nationalities” overnight, as it were.
The UN was created early in this century in order to help overcome one of the biggest barriers to a one world government necessary, if there is to be a military rule and dictatorship. That barrier is the one of nationalism, or pride in one’s country. FDR was their man in America who helped the American public accept it.
They used to funnel guns through the USSR to Palestine, for example, in the name of promoting “friendliness” between the USSR and this state and other arab nations. Then, the US [members] would help funnel guns to Israel, for the same reason.
The conflict in the middle east is only to [their] advantage. They HATE Israel, and hope one day to see it destroyed, and are biding their time. One of the olive branches offered by the UN when it takes over is that they will prevent war in the middle east, and this will be greeted with joy by many. At the same time, [they] covertly supply guns and funds to BOTH sides to keep the conflict fueled. They are very duplicitous people.
Standard Oil is a good example of that. The [near] endgame:
There will be continued conflict in the Middle East, with a severe threat of nuclear war being the culmination of these hostilities. An economic collapse that will devastate the economy of the US and Europe, much like the great depression.
One reason that our economy continues limping along is the artificial support that the Federal Reserve had given it, manipulating interest rates, etc. But one day, this won’t work (or this leverage will be withdrawn on purpose) and the next great depression will hit. The government will call in its bonds and loans, and credit card debts will be called in. There will be massive bankruptcies nationwide.
Europe will stabilize first and then Germany, France and England will have the strongest economies, and will institute, through the UN, an international currency. Japan will also pull out, although their economy will be weakened.
Peacekeeping forces will be sent out by the UN and local bases to prevent riots. The leaders will reveal themselves, and people will be asked to make a pledge of loyalty during a time of chaos and financial devastation.
One last one from that source:
They are working towards bringing in a new leader, who will usher in a … reign of joy, prosperity, and rewards to the faithful. [They] believe that their children are the brightest and best and will be the intellectual elite who will rule over the unintelligent, or “less fit”.
No surprises there and in 2011, as distinct from the listening public of 2000, so many more now have the scenario before them for real – the politicians and high-placed people on obscene salaries scrambling, with bank overlords, for a place in the new sun, once the economies and in particular, the old financial system, collapse. There’s an apocalyptic mood now to a far greater extent than in 2000.
The only change I’d make to the scenario is that the credit issuer will be the IMF and WB, rather than the UN.
Cometh the man [or Lagarde – remember that G-d is a she] and the new system of non-currency comes in – look at U.S. foodstamps for a start or look back to WW2 in this country and the ration books. Only this time, those vouchers will be issued only if you comply with certain conditions and beliefs – the PC system is already in place and anyone going for a job knows of the intrusive questions asked on the form.
Just as passport renewers [frequent travellers] were asked, a decade ago, if they’d go along with the new intrusive techniques and they’d be fasttracked, so you’ll have the option of a chip in the wrist [as William and Harry currently have] and that puts you ahead of the game or so you think. It buys you security, a roof over the head and food, as against some pesky freedoms you’ve lost and let’s face it – if you’re staring starvation in the face on the street, who’s going to talk freedom?
There must be a war or major crisis, that’s a given. Not only are these people militaristic in their manner – “this country has gone too long without a war” – but it is necessary in order to move the new system forward. Hardly matters what it is – Zero Hedge wrote of the U.S./European tensions which could become war if the U.S. convinces its people that Europe are madmen trying to rip the heart out of their wellbeing and bring them down by their own crisis. Could be the other way. Could be out of Libya. They tried Iran but that one didn’t seem to wash, although Israel [the non-Judaic oligarchy] clearly hopes it does.
It’s not important where the war actually is for these purposes.
Money certainly controls the world and all the major events of today are motivated by that or the lack of it. Yet money is not the endgame, only the means to it. The endgame is control, of course, as it’s always been. And as usual, in this struggle, the sheeple get the short end of the stick every time, despite commendable learned discourses about new social contracts.
Ain’t gonna happen because it’s not a level playing field. There is a silent war going on and has been since around 1910, in serious form, of which Jeckyll Island was but part of what had been going on long before then. Lincoln School, Frankfurt School, stacking the thinktanks e.g. universities, dumbing down, prising people from the Judaeo-Christian values they held, producing the new chav and the new non-parent, bereft of values – it’s no different to the old elite and serf game which always was.
A situation is produced where people are happy to be told what to do and think, as long as there are roofs over their heads and food in their bellies plus one or two innocent pleasures. What if one of the conditions for allowing this was that the restrictions on smoking and drinking would now be lifted?
As Yuri Bezmenov indicated, it takes generations to soften up a nation, to take away its identity, strip it of its culture, water down its ethnicity. You invent a movement, ostensibly fighting for someone’s rights, which then hides in rooms and rewrites history, so that the next generation of schoolkids only get the revised version. You need to create an artificial EU of which so many will say, “This is cool, this is new, let’s go for it,” and forget all about their own country, on the promise of visa-free travel across Europe. You need an ignorant and naive people who will buy the crap that Heath and Blair sold them but it takes at least one generation to produce that and in our case, it’s taken two – Gen X and Gen Y.
You need a shallow people who’s idea of spirituality is shopping at the Palaces of Glitz and think of Jordan, Posh and Becks as gods, the summum bonum to aspire to. You need a people who look upon ugliness – in architecture, body mutilation, coarseness, ignorance – as some sort of beauty. You need values turned on their head, where the innocent are incarcerated and the crims go free.
You need a people with no personal spirituality any more and who substitute other gods of a more worldly nature. And then you need your oligarchy of doomed, empty billionairists/politicians to rule over these undernourished but overfed people.
And in the context of that scenario, where is liberty for the common man? Where is freedom then, as we understand the word?
