“”No, the demons are not banished; that is a difficult task that still lies ahead. Now that the angel of history has abandoned the Germans, the demons will seek a new victim. And that won’t be difficult. Every man who loses his shadow, every nation that falls into self-righteousness, is their prey…. We should not forget that exactly the same fatal tendency to collectivization is present in the victorious nations as in the Germans, that they can just as suddenly become a victim of the demonic powers.” – Carl Jung; The Postwar Psychic Problems of the Germans (1945). …
“… The premeditated destruction of Iraq by the United States government provides a present-day example of how government leaders justify the mass murder of foreign populations to their own people. Neoconservative thinking was the ideological source of both the destruction of Iraq and the destruction of the Twin Towers on September 11, 2001.
“Neoconservatism and Environmentalism are the two schools of thought in this age that call for the mass destruction and mass death of human communities. Neocons want to conquer the Earth, and Environmentalists want to save it. Both groups are politically powerful, media savvy, financed by big money, and filled with psychotics who have fantasies of mass destruction and mass death.
“Their death wish is our worst collective nightmare. When we wake up to a world gone crazy, they wake up to a world of beautiful orgies of destruction and death, of mass cleansing and social renewal, of new beginnings and old pleasures.”
I’d have to agree that environmentalism is becoming increasingly synonymous with elite management of depopulation. Paradoxically, genetic and endocrine disrupting pollution may be among the primary tools of population management via their impact on human fertility. The systematic and deliberate introduction of such toxins into the human environment is becoming hard to ignore. See, for instance http://thoughtcrimeradio.net/2011/09/mass-sterilization-pg-list-of-cpsia-exemptions/
It should also be readily apparent that fascism and socialism really do result in the same outcome: the monopolization of resource and social management into an unaccountable and corrupt elite. Apparently the financial powers recognized this some time ago, when they financed both hitler and the bolsheviks (see ref section). Of course the ideological justification for socialism is more appealing to regular folks who understandably expect larger governments to be able to accomplish more public good than smaller governments. And I’m not saying that people in need shouldn’t have some kind of social/economic/political entit(ies) to help them. But I think that it’s more than coincidental that as increasingly large percentages of human productivity are siphoned off into corporate profits, the resultant poverty is being managed by governments who are under the domination of those same private pools of capital.
When you consider that primitive tribal societies which are left alone by these same transnational corporations only require a few hours per day to procure the food and shelter they need to live comfortably, it’s remarkable that in this day of technological achievement that we aren’t all living in the lap of luxury. This phenomenon may be the most egregious example of profit-motivated artificial scarcity, imposed by an economic system governed by debt-based money, which itself is a recipe for concentration of wealth.
Before the federal reserve imposed the great depression, this country used to be based on thriving rural-based regionally self-sufficient economies. As the wealth was siphoned off by the debt pyramid, we’ve increasingly become reliant on unaccountable hierarchies of economic and political power, until we’re ALL essentially on welfare, thriving, surviving or starving at the pleasure of those who control the system. Our political freedoms have evaporated along with our standard of living.
Given that systemic political corruption arises due to the feedback loop of wealth buying political power -> political power grabbing more wealth, economic and political decentralization seems to be the only antidote to it given our present predicament. The founders ALMOST had it right with their separation of powers idea, but unfortunately their passing treatment of the sovereign right to coin money in the constitution left open a gaping vulnerability which was ultimately exploited by the colonial powers with the passage of the federal reserve act. It was a fatal oversight. The USA reverted to colonial status when it went bankrupt during the great depression. It’s been governed under a “state of emergency” ever since.
When we get through this impending catastrophe, which at this point is beyond anyone’s control, grassroots economic activity and the resultant localized governments will be what sustains the survivors. Perhaps given the benefit of this hard-won lesson, a new united states might eventually rise again and the founders vision ultimately fulfilled, when the monetary system is finally fully recognized as public property.
