Huntington’s published analysis for the Trilateral Commission (“The Crisis of Democracy”) represents the establishment’s reaction to the ’60s phenomenon and a long-term strategy for preventing its reemergence. Published in the mid-70’s, its primary economic prescription is a reduction in US living standards. The Carter administration was the launch pad for the implementation of the Trilateralist strategy.
“During the 1960s and 1970s ruling elites in the United States-and throughout the West-were challenged with militant protest from a wide cross-section of the public: workers, Native Americans, ;Blacks, women, poor people, students, Chicanos, Asian Americans, gays, environmentalists. The antiwar movement shook the bipartisan foreign policy consensus which was grounded in the Cold War and U.S. supremacy. Pressure mounted for a more equitable and democratic political, economic, and social system.
Protest was nonviolent and violent, organized and spontaneous, short-lived and enduring. Hundreds of thousands of people marched on Washington, a wave of riots hit major cities and universities were shut down. The ruling class response was often brutal. Protesters were beaten and jailed, leaders were murdered. Students, white and Black, were shot down at Kent State and Jackson State. Police brutality was widespread, especially in minority communities. The FBI escalated its counterintelligence program (COINTELPRO) against Black, Native American, and Puerto Rican liberation struggles; the New Left; the antiwar movement; and the Women’s movement. The CIA carried out a covert action campaign within the U.S. and abroad against U.S. citizens assumed to be involved in antiwar activity known as Operation M HCHAOS (MH standing for matters related to internal U.S. security and CHAOS signifying its goal of infiltrating and destroying anti-war groups). In 1975 the Trilateral Commission released its book-length study, The Crisis of Democracy: Report on the Governability of Democracies to the Trilateral Commission. Noam Chomsky best summarizes the theme: “Trilateral’s RX for Crisis: Governability Yes. Democracy NO.”
The 1960s are the point of departure for the trilateral analysis. J Samuel Huntington, author of the chapter on the United States, describes this period as the “decade of democratic surge and of the reassertion of democratic egalitarianism.” What must follow, as the trilateralists see it, is the reassertion of elite rule and decades of public apathy. Thus, domestic items on the trilateral agenda include: reducing the expectations of the poor and middle class, increasing presidential authority, strengthening business-government cooperation in economic planning, stricter press self-regulation and government oversight, and pacification of rank and file labor…”

People buried in textbooks are frequently incapable of seeing the skinner box strapped to their heads, or the neural atrophy they likely suffer as a result of early mistreatment at the hands of medical “science,” which has thrown a monkey wrench into the finely tuned process of early human socialization. They are both products of and catalysts for the current genocidal order, and I’m sure it only seems rational to them. Here’s a case in point:
“What single organization is responsible for more terror plots in the USA than any other? Possible answers: Al Qaida. That would no doubt be the popular answer but it would be wrong. The KKK. Way past their prime, so that is not it. The Jewish Defense League. Good guess, but still not it. So what is the correct answer? It is the Federal Bureau of Investigation, AKA the FBI.”
But perhaps that’s the globalists’ plan eh? Bring on managed “revolutions” and “humanitarian” wars against former buddies who are no longer useful. If the US government adds an oil crisis to the list of catastrophes they’ve already wrought on our devastated economy, it ought to be the final nail in the coffin of the theory that it’s ultimately a nationalist entity composed of overzealous or delusional patriots. The US government is a zombie puppet, a “pod” government like every other under the control of the central banking mafia. The wars in iraq, afghanistan, libya, the drug war etc are all being waged AGAINST the USA, the constitution and whatever remains of our sovereignty as a people. The vampires which feed on us are out there for all to see. The people who counterfeit money and charge interest on it can buy anything they want. Their participation in high level planning and coordination can be seen in the lockstep behavior of the centrally managed mass media which invariably find reasons to support the military adventure of the day in pursuit of the scapegoat of the day.
Western civilization, through subversion and deception, has been reduced to a collection of nations of sheep being led around by zombie governments under the control of the money masters. It’s a strange world.
“For more than a century ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized incidents such as my encounter with Castro to attack the Rockefeller family for the inordinate influence they claim we wield over American political and economic institutions. Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as internationalists and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure — one world, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.” — David Rockefeller
Of course if you believe in man made global warming (“belief” is the appropriate word here. Whether it’s true or not, it’s become a state religion embraced by the mass media despite conflicting data, non-predictive computer models and evidence of forgery, something that should give one pause), it all makes sense, and it all fits in tidily with real concerns over industrial pollution, environmental destruction and genetic corruption. The problem is that the culprits for the latter problems are well defined, very powerful, continue their practices with impunity and are already positioned to profit from the monetization of carbon. Meanwhile choking off the carbon cycle (which includes solar energy input via plants) will drastically impact all of us, including the most vulnerable. Hundreds of millions can be expected to starve to death under a carbon regime. I find it remarkable that the opinion leaders on the left universally ignore the inconvenient truths about the establishment’s sudden concern over grassroots energy use which maintains basic food supplies and shelter. Is humanity itself truly a blight on the earth, or is it rather our pathological debt-based currency system which produces supremely destructive boom-bust cycles and endless war? Have we been tricked AGAIN? Nah, this time they’re telling the truth …. best to trust in “science”, such as it is.
