Humanity at the Crossroads
Connecting the Dots to Our Brave New World
By Larry Romanoff, June 17, 2020
Humankind is at a cusp, a point of transition between two different states of governance and existence. The world today is like a sack being slowly filled while the string around the opening is pulled increasingly tighter to prevent the contents from escaping confinement. The shadows of this future are everywhere to be seen but even the keenest of observers tend to view the portents not as the warnings they are, but instead regard all these pieces of one despairing puzzle as disconnected and unrelated events. In this essay, we will take a look at where our world is going, how it is going there, and why it is going there.
For, dark and despairing, my sight I may seal, but man cannot hide what God would reveal.
‘Tis the sunset of life gives me mystical lore,and coming events cast their shadow before. (1)
One needn’t be credentialed as either prophet or oracle to make the connections and expose the plan. It is another matter entirely to convince average readers of the truth of it. German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer wrote that all truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident. We are midway between the first and second stages, where proponents of exposure are still widely ridiculed but, if they gain a popular audience, they will be violently attacked.
Where we are going – One World Government
Lest we succumb to the temptation of dismissing this as yet another batty conspiracy theory, it would be wise to consider these quotes:
David Rockefeller in an address to the Trilateral Commission, referring to the Bilderberg Group, whose existence was hotly denied and derided for decades as just another conspiracy theory:
“We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected the promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the bright lights of public scrutiny during those years. But, the world is now more sophisticated and fully prepared to march towards our one world-government. The supranational sovereignty of our intellectual elites and world bankers is surely preferable to the globe as a whole.” (2)
Montagu Norman, Governor of The Bank of England prior to the crash of 1929, addressing the United States Bankers’ Association, New York, Idaho Leader, 26 August 1924.
“When, through process of law, the common people lose their homes, they will become more docile and more easily governed through the strong arm of the government applied by a central power of wealth under leading financiers. These truths are well known among our principal men, who are now engaged in forming an imperialism to govern the world.” (3)
Banker Paul Warburg, testifying before the US Senate on February 17, 1950, stated,
“We will have a world government whether you like it or not. The only question is whether that government will be achieved by conquest or consent.” (4)
We will have a look at one example each of the ‘conquest’ and ‘consent’ scenarios in Iraq and Greece, but let me state here that there are literally thousands of similar statements going back well over 100 years (sufficient with footnotes to fill a 300-page book), by authors and personalities famous and obscure, but all containing essentially the same message – that the financial powers of Europe and America are planning a super-sovereign world government within their absolute control. One would have to be a fool to ignore the sheer volume of evidence.
A Quick Look at Greece
Greece is now a failed state, an almost perfect exemplar of our future, the definitive ideal of those planning the world to come. Driven into bankruptcy by unrepayable loans, the leaders of Greece threw away their nation’s one chance for survival as a sovereign state and instead capitulated totally, accepting draconian measures meant to perpetually impoverish their population, while privatising the entire nation in one fell swoop. The international bankers bullied Greece into placing the nation’s entire infrastructure into a so-called trust (controlled by “an independent Luxembourg-based company”), which, by order, would be “entirely outside the reach or influence” of the Greek government. The bankers and their friends will now take ownership of all of it, at prices they set.
Greece was bullied into a package of reforms with severe austerity measures and spending cuts. The government slashed spending in all quarters, eliminated 25% of civil service positions, reducing wages by 30% for those remaining. Greece was forced to increase the VAT rate, reduce (and eliminate) pensions and increase the retirement age, raise the domestic corporation tax while cutting taxes for the top 1% and foreign corporations, take drastic measures to “improve tax collection and fight tax evasion”. Naturally, the economy instantly cratered, losing about one quarter of its size with unemployment rising above 25% and youth unemployment above 50%, rendering the majority of families under considerable financial stress.
The government was also forced to establish virtually a new constitution, with Eurocrats and IMF officials not only writing the new laws but also having a veto over all new legislation, serving to embody in law a lack of social infrastructure and perpetual poverty, emasculating the sovereignty of the state. To ensure compliance with the austerity directives, Greece is obliged to surrender control over the policing of all major portions of its economy. Eurocrats and IMF officials not only wrote the new laws, but EU (i.e. banking) officials are placed inside all ministries, with authority to ensure compliance and control funds. Greeks now hate the Europeans bitterly, believing that these foreign creditors’ power to “rummage through every government department on Greek soil” is an insult to Greek sovereignty, with Greece in fact and reality now facing not only austerity but external governance.
Greece’s Finance Minister, Yanis Varoufakis, resigned his position rather than participate in the destruction of his country, accusing the bankers and the ECB of deploying “liquidity asphyxiation” to bring the country to its knees, saying
“The costs being demanded of Greece are so punitive that they are almost impossible to meet.” He said further that “The most humiliating and unbearable choice is an agreement that will surrender and loot our country and subjugate our people. The European Central Bank cut off all liquidity and creditors simply destroyed our country.”
Greece’s economy has become nearly paralysed, with the whole economy shifting to cash. The local payments system is breaking down since nobody wants to accept transfers into bank accounts that could be seized at any moment, the Greeks remembering only too well the recent prior events in Cyprus where the same bankers seized from 50% to 90% of all bank accounts of significant size, including pension funds and (to the glee of many) all accounts held by Russians. Many Cypriots saw their savings wiped out because of the privately-owned central bank. The US government did something similar to its own citizens in 1933 by seizing all gold holdings by Americans – in the depths of the Great Depression. Citizens received dollars in return for the seized gold, but that dollar was formally devalued by 40% at the same time, robbing all of 60% of their holdings. (5) (6)
Greece has virtually ceased to exist as a sovereign nation, and there are many others similar, including Cyprus, Haiti, Somalia, Iraq, Libya, the Balkans, Panama, Nicaragua. This is not news. To quote William Blum:
“It was under Reagan administration influence that the International Monetary Fund and World Bank began widely imposing the policy package known as structural adjustment – featuring deregulation, privatization, emphasis on exports, cuts in social spending – that has plunged country after country in the developing world into economic destitution.”
The IMF chief at the time was honest about what was to come, saying in 1981 that, for low-income countries, “adjustment is particularly costly in human terms”. (7) (8)
With Greece as in all such cases after Imperialism has taken control, the nation is surrounded by a news blanket through which little if anything escapes, with the willing compliance (or terrified submission) of all news wires and media outlets, removing the country from the worldwide public mind.
A Look at Iraq
It is well-known the US launched a devastating war on Iraq, criminally unjustified and based entirely on falsehoods, and against the advice of its own military, some in the Pentagon labeling the idea “crazy”. By 2013 the US media were reporting a US military withdrawal from Iraq, but the US never had any intention of ever leaving Iraq. The myth of withdrawal was merely a PR attempt “to delete Iraq from the public’s collective consciousness, to make it disappear so they can work quietly without public scrutiny”. It is true that several hundred small military bases have been closed, but there are an additional 40 or 50 very large bases that were built to be permanent and will never be closed.
The US embassy in Beijing contains an astonishing more than 1,200 people, but the US embassy in Baghdad contains more than 16,000 people, the largest and most expensive in the world, comprising more than 100 acres, larger than the Vatican City, and costing more than 2 billion dollars to build. It is a self-contained, heavily armed and fortified city in the center of Baghdad, centered on Saddam’s former palace and containing more than 20 buildings surrounded by 20-foot walls and entirely self-sufficient for electricity, water, and all other functions, the permanent Middle East Headquarters of the American empire. From here, in conjunction with the US “embassy” in Yerevan, Armenia that contains 6,000 people (the second-largest embassy in the world) the US can spread its brutal imperial tentacles over a wide swath of Mesopotamia and the Middle East.
Iraq’s New Legislative Control
Iraq’s government is a nearly irrelevant puppet administration. The first acts of the occupying Provisional Authority were to rewrite Iraq’s constitution and body of laws by declaring a succession of 100 so-called “Provisionary Orders” promulgated by American Paul Bremer. These Provisionary Orders were written into Iraqi law prior to the US handover of the government, and have the highest standing of all laws in Iraq, so high they “cannot be removed by any subsequent Iraqi government”. They are perpetual. (9)
Orders 57 and 77 ensure full control of Iraq by placing US-appointed auditors and inspectors-general in every government ministry, with sweeping authority over contracts, programs, employees and regulations. These Orders stipulate that the US must approve every senior government appointment and every candidate for elected office. US military officers are reported to frequently and freely enter cabinet meetings with demands or instructions on policy decisions to be made. One of Bremer’s first acts was to close almost 200 state-owned businesses and turn the industry sectors over to American companies, rendering unemployed more than 500,000 people. He took control of Iraq’s media, shuttering them on a whim, over the objections of virtually everyone.
Bremer’s Orders permit foreign multinationals to privatise the entire nation including all physical and social infrastructure and all commerce. They allocate to foreign oil companies the exclusive right to at least 65% of the country’s oil reserves, and to determine the distribution of revenue and profit allocated to Iraq from the remainder. Order 39 allows for the tax-free remittance of all foreign corporate profits. Order 81 stipulates that all Iraqi farmers must use Monsanto’s GM seed for all crops planted in the country, with the use of any heritage Iraqi seed stock now totally prohibited. Order 17 guarantees that all Americans and foreign contractors in Iraq will not be subject to Iraqi law. The orders state that “All trained elements of the Iraqi armed forces shall at all times be under the operational control of the American commander”. Order 56 creates a new privately-owned (foreign) central bank.
Examining Bremer’s Laws
I have occasionally been charged with responsibility for drafting legislation at a national level and can testify this is not something one does in ten minutes over a cup of coffee. The task requires extreme expertise in a particular area and a more than adequate facility in the drafting of legal wording. When amending legislation, it is paramount to possess a flawless familiarity with the content of existing law and, most importantly, a thorough apprehension of the full range of potential consequences of a particular selection of legal wording.
Consider the framing of legislation for a national health care system. Certainly we need one or more medical experts intimately familiar with the entire range of health services and a general appreciation of the required infrastructure, but we also need extensive experience in planning the delivery system for such care, as well as the taxation implications of financing. It would be rare to find this combination of knowledge in one person, to say nothing of the legal knowledge necessary to draft the appropriate huge legislation. If we add medical insurance into this mix, it should be apparent that we need an entire team of specialists and considerable time to forge the necessary legal framework. Moreover, except for the most simple of items, we would almost never rely on the opinion or judgment of only one person in any field, thus considerably expanding the numbers of this team.
Bremer’s laws covered virtually the entire gamut of Iraqi society, including taxation, transportation, and medical care, the founding of a privately-owned central bank, a new Iraqi currency and a full slate of laws on foreign investment, banking and securities markets, SOEs, a new electoral law governing parties and elections. There were new laws governing the nation’s petroleum industry, control of the media, laws dealing with foreign contractors, the auditing of government departments, a new penal code, detention and prison facilities, control of Iraqi borders, ports and airports, a Ministry of Science and Technology, a full revision of the labor code, vast legislation dealing with trademarks, patents, design, and an overhaul of IP, entirely new laws controlling agriculture that included GM seed, and very much more.
It should be obvious that no one man could possess the required expertise in all these areas, and nothing in Bremer’s background suggests ability of consequence in any of them. Further, many of these portions of legislation were extremely complex, each containing a great many pages of precise legal wording that would have required several months in the drafting. This means a great number of large teams meeting regularly over many months to finalise drafts, but it also infers mandatory reporting to a control group on the progress, guidance as to overall intent of each piece of legislation, with periodic approval of direction, content, and final result. Yet Bremer was promulgating these new Orders at the rate of three or four per week, the entire 100 produced in about ten months.
The drafting of these laws would have required at least hundreds of experts, perhaps more than 1,000, and a lengthy time in preparation. Bremer was appointed to Iraq on May 9, 2003, and issued his first Order (on the De-Ba’athification of Iraqi Society) on May 16. That would hardly provide adequate time to overcome jet lag, much less to obtain an appreciation of what Ba’ath society was, much less the rationale for, and consequences of, exterminating it. Bremer then issued another 30 or 40 laws within the next few months, including the entire penal code, banking and investment, the military, and more.
Order 56 creating the new privately-owned central bank is an immense document that would require months of preparation. The seed laws were almost certainly written by the lawyers from Monsanto and Cargill, et al. Others are similar. It is obvious these laws were written in advance by executives and lawyers of banks and multinational corporations all over the world and simply delivered to Bremer to promulgate. It is also obvious these laws were planned and in process long before the US invaded Iraq. To add to this equation, we have the fact that the laws were not prepared by any portion of the US government, since even the White House had no specific knowledge of any of Bremer’s activities and the US Congress had been sidelined and silenced beforehand.
Let’s step back for a moment to examine Bremer’s appointment as Director of the Coalition Provisional Authority and interim President of Iraq. The sanitised narrative tells us that Bremer was selected by President Bush, but there is no evidence that Bush had ever met Bremer or indeed ever heard his name, the man having had minor past appointments but having been out of government employ for more than ten years prior.
Secretary of State Colin Powell had already placed Lt. Gen. Jay Garner as the top official in Iraq, and planned to add Zalmay Khalilzad, an Iraqi with extensive local knowledge to assist Garner. Suddenly and without explanation (while Powell was out of town), Bremer was plucked from thin air and appointed to replace Garner – to the great surprise of Powell, Rice, and all others. According to the published record, Powell called Rice on his return and asked, “What’s going on? What happened?” Rice apparently replied, “I don’t know. I had nothing to do with it.” Bremer’s appointment was not only a surprise, but against the stated will of the President, the Secretary of State and the country’s National Security Advisor. As well, both the CIA and the military strongly objected, the CIA because they hadn’t been asked or informed and the military because they viewed an uninformed civilian helicopter transplant as both dangerous and useless.
The facts suggest the impetus came through Henry Kissinger, with whom Bremer had been closely associated and was a Managing Director of Kissinger Associates for 10 or 12 years to that point, the thread seeming to lead through Cheney while bypassing the President. The facts are not clear on whether Bush was instructed to obey or was even informed on the matter prior to his announcement. Military knowledge and intimate familiarity with Iraq were deemed essential for this position, but Bremer had neither. When Bremer was given the position in Iraq, the White House plan was that he take Khalilzad with him but, in a private meeting with President Bush, Bremer insisted he be solely in charge, a demand Bush accommodated.
On the organisation chart, Bremer reported to Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, but ample evidence exists that Rumsfeld totally ignored Bremer and his activity, Bremer doing the same in reverse. Rumsfeld had a reputation as a control mandarin; it has been widely documented that he was often present in Baghdad to direct the torture facilities and ‘military pacification’ of the Iraqi citizenry, and it is thus beyond logic that he would have ignored his most important subordinate – the “President of Iraq”, who was tasked with remaking the entire country, but there is no credible record of the two even crossing paths. Bremer held what appears to have been a fully independent and unassailable position with no oversight from any part of the US government.
Rajiv Chandrasekaran, an assistant managing editor of The Washington Post and its bureau chief in Baghdad at the time, wrote a book titled ‘Imperial Life in the Emerald City: Inside Iraq’s Green Zone’. (9) He spoke at length about this in a PBS interview in 2006. (10) Chandrasekaran claims Bremer “viewed his (Saddam’s) palace out there in Baghdad not as an embassy that had any obligation to report back developments to Washington”, claiming further that virtually no information flowed from Baghdad to Washington and that “Bremer had been given an exemption” from clearing any decisions through the White House.
In fact, Bremer’s leash was so long and Bremer so secretive that when the White House wanted information, Condolezza Rice could do no better than have her NSC staff check the Coalition Provisional Authority (CPA) website – to see if they could learn what was happening in Baghdad. Bremer further refused to hire anyone who wasn’t ‘ideologically sympathetic’ to his real purposes, or who might have a ‘back channel’ to Washington. “Their only allegiance would be to Bremer.” Chandrasekaran says that whatever Bremer wanted, he got, and that he “amassed quite a degree of power and influence”. In this entire matter, the US Congress was nowhere to be seen, totally removed from oversight or governing.
A Matter of Money
At least US$100 billion and perhaps as much as US$200 billion, the bulk of this in cash, all of it within Bremer’s control, simply disappeared without a trace. The US FED alone shipped US$40 billion in cash by air to Iraq, most of it unaccounted for. Millions of tons of Iraqi oil were sold without accounting as to the purchasers and with no record of the disposition of the receipts. A large but undetermined additional amount of exported oil was unmetered, leaving no record of the volume or the payments. Bremer had a room near his office in Saddam’s palace that contained by documented reports US$600 million to US$800 million in cash, that was his private ‘slush fund’ and which bore no records of any kind. There was no oversight from any source. Billions of dollars were repeatedly paid for contracts where no evidence existed of work having being done. In addition, Iraq’s central bank was looted of at least US$20 billion in gold (some reports claimed US$60 billion), plus undocumented billions in foreign currency, which is also unaccounted for.
In one case, a ‘reconstruction project’ was quoted to the Iraqi ‘government’ as costing US$20 billion but Bremer presented instead an invoice for US$60 billion. When Iraq objected, Bremer’s response was, “Just be grateful we saved you from Saddam.” The $60 billion was paid from Iraqi oil exports but no documentation exists as to who received the money and no evidence existed as to any actual work having been performed. In other cases, Bremer paid multiple invoices for hundreds of millions of dollars each as wages for thousands of workers when no one could produce evidence that such workers had ever existed. (11)
An International Advisory and Monitoring Board (IAMB) was later established to provide independent financial oversight of Bremer’s CPA spending, the board including representatives from the UN, the World Bank, the IMF and the Arab Fund for Economic and Social Development. The IAMB spent months trying to find auditors acceptable to the US, the Bahrain office of KPMG finally appointed in April 2004. It was stonewalled. They wrote in an interim report:
“KPMG has encountered resistance from CPA staff regarding the submission of information required to complete our procedures.”
“The auditors even had trouble getting passes to enter the Green Zone. There appears to have been good reason for the Americans to stall. At the end of June 2004, the CPA would be disbanded and Bremer would leave Iraq. There was no way the (White House) would want independent auditors to publish a report into the financial propriety of its Iraqi administration while the CPA was still in existence and Bremer at its head still answerable to the press. So the report was published in July.” (12)
Bremer’s exit from Iraq raised many questions. His handover of government was done days in advance of the published schedule, performed entirely by surprise and literally in minutes, Bremer then quickly boarding a helicopter for the airport where he then boarded a US military transport. When all Iraqis had left the scene, he suddenly deplaned and boarded a private Gulfstream 4 that flew him out. He then resurfaced in Vermont as a ski instructor.
There is very much more. Generally, the auditors found either inadequate or no documentation to account for almost all funds, with no way of knowing how much money was actually looted or to whom it was paid. “Since then, investigators have spent years trying to trace what happened to the enormous amount of money shipped in the frantic days of the occupation of Iraq. Although there have been hundreds of pages of reports, Congressional hearings, and inquiries from Washington to Baghdad, no one in Congress, a special inspector general’s office, the Department of Defense or the Iraqi government itself can say with certainty what exactly happened to all of that money.” (12)
Let’s review what we have so far. A group of powerful men decided that Iraq would be colonised, and pressed Bush to use the US military to destroy and then occupy the country, this over the objection of the US military. This same group removed Garner and installed Bremer as the head of the Coalition Occupying government, over the unanimous objections of the US President, the Secretary of State, the National Security Council, the US military and the CIA. Bremer, appearing to have unlimited power and no oversight, reported to no one in the US government, the evidence suggesting the White House and Cabinet, including Donald Rumsfeld, Bremer’s direct superior, and the US President, were forbidden to meddle or even to ask direct questions on his activity. The US military and CIA voiced strong objections – to no avail – to many of Bremer’s initial laws, especially on the Ba’ath society and dismantling the Iraqi military, stating these actions would lead to perpetual protests and bloodshed.
This same group of powerful men gathered hundreds of experts to draft new legislation to control Iraq according to their private plan. Simultaneously, Iraq was being unconscionably looted, openly and without apparent inhibition, perhaps of US $200 billion in total which disappeared without a trace, and with no information as to who received that money.
This was all done with no identifiable benefit to the US as a nation, or to the American people. The US incurred the several trillion dollars of the cost of the Iraq war, took all the battlefield casualties, and was delegated to occupy Iraq at its own expense, then remain silent. The only apparent duty of the US Congress was to conduct an insincere investigation into the missing billions, then sweep the matter under the carpet. The media, compliant as always, remained silent on all matters demanding a voice.
Who are They?
Who were those people, this handful of powerful men, who decided to subjugate and loot Iraq, the men responsible for drafting all Iraq’s new laws, and undoubtedly the recipients of the missing billions? Who are these men who have the power to direct the US President and the military to destroy an innocent country and occupy it? Who has the power to take over Iraq’s entire infrastructure and loot all its assets, while forbidding any part of the US government to interfere, in spite of the fact that the US paid the bill for the entire effort? Similarly, who were the men with the power not only to terrify Greece into utter submission and loot the country’s entire infrastructure in one shot but to embed themselves permanently into Greece’s government with the authority to maintain and ensure that submission?
These men were, are, and will be, our new masters in our Brave New World. But there is much more. We have seen brief examples of where we are going – “by conquest or consent”. Let’s take a brief look at how the rest of us are going there.
The Train to Perdition
The over-riding feature of our new world will be the ultimate control of our economies, our nations – such as they will be, and our lives, by a group of international bankers and industrialists. One arrow in this quiver is the privatisation – taking public assets into private hands – of the entire physical and social infrastructure of our nations, as we have seen with Greece and Iraq – and which already applies to more than a few other nations. It is this that is responsible for the extreme push that has been building since the 1970s and early 1980s to privatisation, the US being the best example of acquiescence. For those nations resisting, this is the cause of the push in the WTO and other agreements to securitise all infrastructure in preparation for collapsing stock markets then purchasing for pennies all of a nation’s assets. Privatisation includes even arable land and water aquifers, everything of value and of necessity for human life.
The world needs with extreme urgency to see a world map of privatisation as it exists today, diagrams of all nations displaying all the national assets and infrastructure that have already been privatised. The shock from seeing this alone might serve to wake up the world, to realise how far this strategy has already progressed. As one example, after the destruction of Jugoslavia, it was briefly reported that George Soros and Madeline Albright had taken possession of Kosovo’s entire communications network, with an estimated value of US$800 million. George Bush’s family took ownership of millions of acres of the largest water aquifer in South America. There are literally thousands of such events scattered around the globe that have received no publicity or attention, being considered as isolated instances instead of crucial elements of a vast plan that has been increasing in speed for the past 60 years. Extreme attention is being paid to controlling the entire world’s fresh water. Nestle’s president is on record as stating that water is not a human right but a commodity that should be priced and sold (and privately-owned).
It isn’t only public assets that are being ‘privatised’. This includes the creation of ever-larger worldwide corporate and banking behemoths swallowing their smaller rivals until, in each nation, most of the means of production and distribution are in the same hands, eliminating nation by nation the leading producers until none of significance remain. Control of a nation’s food supply is part of this enormously ambitious scheme of world government and control, hence the intense bullying push on all nations to accept GM seed. This seed has two main purposes. The obvious one is that it gives the multi-national seed companies virtual total control over the fundamental fabric of a nation’s food supply. The less obvious purpose is that GM seed was invented not by seed companies but by the US military as an offensive weapon or, more precisely, as a weapons-delivery system. It is now widely-known that many lethal pathogens can be spliced into GM seed. The masters will have a choice with recalcitrant nations: either refuse a supply of seed and let the population starve, or splice typhus, HIV, the plague, into the seeds and let nature take its course.
The plan involves the destruction of national sovereignty and of individual nationalism. Patriotism and loyalty to nations are a curse which must be eliminated. There are many avenues for this. One is the incessant drumbeat in the media, propagandising the world against economic or any other kind of nationalism. Another is immigration, as is being carried out in Europe. Economic hopefuls and other refugees have no nationalistic feelings toward their adopted country and no regrets over lost sovereignty. When a nation reaches a level of 30% of such persons, it may be impossible to arouse a critical mass of indignity that would lead to protests and uprisings.
But sovereignty does not disappear; it is merely replaced. Thus, another major building block is the transfer of sovereignty to the bankers and their multi-national corporations, which was the main thrust of the stillborn TPP where the rights of corporations would supersede those of a nation’s government and its supreme courts, being thrust solely into the hands of panels consisting of lawyers selected by this same group. The TPP attempt was astonishing in its boldness, a terrifying amount of bullying of nations to transfer absolute power to a group of entirely unknown persons for the sake of establishing in perpetuity the rights of these people to absolutely loot every nation to abject poverty. As one example, the refusal to a tobacco company to sell cigarettes would trigger an automatic obligation to pay that firm all the profits – in perpetuity – it would have made had it been entirely free of government regulation.
To bring this plan to completion also requires the eventual destabilisation and effective destruction of the family, of organised society, and of religion. When the Bolsheviks inflicted their communist coups throughout Europe, the instance of Hungary is most exemplary. When the communists took over Hungary, Bela Kun proclaimed himself dictator, one of his first decrees being to nationalise almost all private property and to announce that private commerce would be punished with the death penalty. He immediately confiscated virtually all industry and land, and began an intense attack on religion while making great efforts to undermine and destroy all public morality as well as concepts of God and religion. He instituted a program of what came to be known as cultural terrorism. As part of this, he began a radical sex education program in Hungarian schools where children were instructed in free love, sexual intercourse, the archaic nature of middle class family codes, the outdatedness of monogamy and the irrelevance of religion which deprives man of all pleasures. Women were called to rebel against the sexual mores of the time by engaging in open promiscuity.
The stated purpose in promoting licentiousness among women and children was to destroy the family, the core institution of Christianity and western culture. As perhaps the best current example, we can clearly see evidence in slow motion today of this happening in the US, in large part with the heavy promotion and even celebration of the alphabet soup of sexual preferences and of two men becoming ‘husband’ and ‘wife’ and adopting small boys.
In terms of society, this is the cause of the class war being waged in all Western nations today, the purpose being, as with the Bolshevik revolutions and the US in 2008, to either kill off or bankrupt the bourgeois, the middle classes, and send them all down to the lower class where they eventually become homeless, disposable cattle.
The 2008 debacle in the US was generally described as a financial crisis, but it was really part of the class war, meant to deprive as many Americans as possible of their homes to make them more docile and more easily governed. The huge bubble in 2008 in ‘subprime’ home loans was immediately repeated with automobiles in precisely the same way, these loans securitised then diced and sliced while being given AAA ratings by Moodys. Today, the ratio of delinquent auto loans is approaching a crisis point and will undoubtedly soon implode, depriving millions of Americans of their only hope of holding any employment since a car is virtually a necessity in much of the US. In 2008, most of the US middle class was unceremoniously dumped into the lower class, all signs seeming to indicate a repeat on the horizon.
The program has also involved for the past 60 years increasingly bold attempts at population reduction, either killing off or sterilising vast swaths of humanity. This was the reason for the foundation of Planned Parenthood, the main reason for existence of USAID, for Kissinger’s NSSM 200 – a viciously aggressive plan to prevent, at apparently almost any cost, births in non-Western countries. USAID and Reimert Ravenholt sterilised at least 100 million unwitting women, killing tens of millions in the process. This program was behind Robert McNamara’s Project 100,000. It was almost certainly behind the recent Zika virus in South America. It is the reason the WHO has been traveling the undeveloped world and sterilising countless millions of women without their knowledge through the fraudulent tetanus vaccination programs where the vaccine is laced with Hcg, in fact permanently vaccinating women against pregnancy.
This is the reason seed companies are suddenly promoting the use of cotton seeds as a primary foodstuff for underdeveloped countries. Cotton seeds are toxic, containing a chemical called gossypol which is an effective male sterilant. The seed companies claim to have removed this toxin to a safe level, but there is no safe level for gossypol. Even very minute doses taken repeatedly (as when used for a basic food) will render an entire male population sterile. What the WHO, the World Bank, and UNICEF do for the female populations, the seed companies will do for the male portion. If they have their way, much of the world may one day be uninhabited.
The Bankers’ Private Army
Such grand plans to corral humanity as domestic animals and to successfully put down opposition from them and the remnants of their governments, requires overwhelming military strength. It began with the British East India Company where Rothschild had at one time a standing army of more than one million men, a testimony to the profitability of looting rich India. The army had two main purposes: to discourage local Indians from protesting at the looting of their nation by foreigners, and the necessity of enforcing by violence the abandonment by farmers of food crops to grow opium for sale in China. The history books are mostly silent and cleverly vague on the transfer of these responsibilities to the British government, leading readers to assume the British at some point ordered the East India Company to relinquish its power to be replaced by the more humane British. But that’s now how it was. Rothschild abandoned his military when the profits were insufficient to carry it, and simply transferred his flag to the British military who became literally the Banker’s Private Army to be used not only in India but in many other instances like the Boer wars where Rothschild wanted the gold and diamonds, this private army obediently killing all those who stood in the way.
The UK was used thus for many years, through two world wars nobody wanted, until England was finally bankrupt, its fabled Empire in tatters, and begging the US for financial support. England was deliberately sacrificed for these ends as described, and today remains only a rump, a tail so grateful to have a dog. But no matter. These same men had already obtained virtual full control of the US government and simply transferred their flag – again to the world’s most powerful military. It is no secret that the US is itself being cannibalised by this same group, eventually drowning in unrepayable war debt, the citizenry mostly homeless and bankrupt, and the entire infrastructure and means of production owned by this same small group. As Benjamin Netanyahu famously stated, “Once we have squeezed everything we want from the US, it can dry up and blow away.” And it will.
But no matter. The flag is already being transferred to NATO, a supra-national military responsible only to this same group, an irresistible military force comprised of all the armed forces of dozens of nations. This is why a full surrender of a nation’s military is a prerequisite even for consideration in joining the EU. This is why the servicemen of NATO are being taught to abandon all feelings of nationalism for their country and wear only a NATO flag on their hearts. NATO was meant as the enforcement arm of the TPP, had it succeeded, but will still function as something similar.
We are now seeing rampant uprisings in Iraq, throughout South America, and will soon see them in Greece, the populations arising en masse to protest against their impoverishment and slavery. In the end, each stripped and emasculated national ‘government’ will have only two functions: tax collection to funnel money to the masters of the world, and population suppression to put down the inevitable revolts. In cases where either the government itself revolts, or where the government proves unable to quell massive disturbances, NATO will intervene to “pacify” the population with terror and brutality.
Who are These People?
The members of this group are generally extremely wealthy bankers and industrialists, the owners or controllers of most of the world’s multi-national companies, media, and so on, who seem to hold an ideal of a world comprised of their small number owning all the means of production, assisted by a larger group of educated compradors, all ruling over a world populated by homeless, uneducated and impoverished pre-humans. I have no explanation for this ambition. They would own or control the entire world’s wealth, but to what end? None of these people can spend what they have now, many private fortunes running into the trillions of dollars. I believe most of us would prefer to be kings of a rich and educated society, rather than Tarzan, king of the apes, the ruler of a herd of goats not being much of a ruler by any measure.
Signs of Hope
There are some, but not many. The strength of Russia and China, and perhaps Iran, is of some comfort, since another world war is almost certainly on the horizon for the finalisation of this plan. The protests in France and throughout South America bring some comfort, particularly those nations gathering their courage and refusing to be enslaved or to be bullied into submission by the US.
This cabal of would-be world emperors has flaws of its own, prematurity resulting from excessive confidence being one. It was the same group that attempted the fascist coup in the US in 1934, but failed. The TPP was an astonishingly bold attempt to simply bully much of the world into submission, which also failed. There have been others.
The plethora of online information and its absorption by what appears to be an increasing number of people in many nations, is cause for hope since education is vital to expose all parts of this plan, and sunlight is still the best disinfectant. And, as William Blum said, you need faith and courage.
