major political parties are engaged in a strategy to
impoverish the world, citizens of the United States included.
The reason politicians would do that is because they do
what they are told to do.
They will be rewarded personally for complying, while the
rest of humanity will suffer because of it.
Why would the folks who rule the world want to
impoverish you and me? Simple.
We are at peak
The world runs on oil.
Future supplies are limited.
The more poverty there is, the longer supplies will
last. Those who own and control oil also control the
political landscape. They
will not give up their monopoly for the sake of humanity, and bankers
will not give up trying to extract as much
wealth as possible from each world citizen before each economy
collapses under the strain.
And so the
United States has become a machine for acquiring oil reserves.
That’s the agenda of the government.
That’s also the primary function of the military.
We are at war with every nation that has significant
oil reserves. No
nation that has oil reserves will be allowed to become or
democracy that has large oil reserves would want to retain those
resources for the benefit of its own people.
Any nation that has oil reserves could conceivably
become a wealthy nation. Of course, under our current strategy
only a country's puppet regime and their affiliates are made
wealthy while ordinary citizens are left to languish in
poverty. That's just the
new world order.
States has fashioned itself into a predator in search of
fossil fuel. If
you have some, our country will eat your lunch… sooner or
later. Even so, the
jig is up. There’s
more demand for oil than there is supply.
That’s why the world is being impoverished.
The less you have, the more will be available for the
predator class. Pursuing
this strategy is straightforward and absolute.
If you have it, we want it.
If we think we can take it, we will.
But is this
our best strategy? Surely
it is the simplest and the most straightforward.
The only problem is, you first have to extinguish the
democratic process and moral sensibilities in order to execute the
strategy unencumbered. In
the US, those
preliminary steps have, for all intents and purposes, been accomplished.
Being the top
predator is a good place to be… as long as you can keep that
spot indefinitely. But
can you? In the
long run, oil reserves will still be depleted.
And in the interim, the expense of oil
extraction, the cost of ongoing predation and the need for
defenses against reprisals will all increase over time.
And when extracting oil is no longer profitable, then what?
By then there may be no options left… for anyone.
It’s easy enough to see why the strategy is
attractive though. It’s
a winner over the short run…. but a winner for whom?
The ruling class wins, but only temporarily.
Even the size of the predator class diminishes over time as
reserves are depleted and everyone else becomes their enemy.
a better strategy would be to shrink the military, end our
predatory practices, and instead, pursue an aggressive program
developing alternative sources of energy, not including
nuclear or any fossil fuel. This
would grow the economy and facilitate sustainability.
But of course, in a democracy, trying to accomplish any
big project is difficult… so difficult that you don’t see
any presidential candidate from either major party proposing that we try it.
not nuclear? Because nuclear is not safe at any speed.
not fossil fuel? Because global warming will end life as
we know it.
