Introduction to The Road Through 2012: Revolution or World War III … The following is Part I to David DeGraw's new book, "The Road Through 2012: Revolution or World War III." This is the second installment to a new seven-part series that we will be posting throughout the next few weeks … Economic Imperial Operations W hen we analyze our current crisis, focusing on the past few years of economic activity blinds us to the history and context that are vital to understanding the root cause. – ZeroHedge
Dominant Social Theme: One percent to bind them, one percent to rule them.
Free-Market Analysis: This rebuttal to DeGraw's book is not entirely timely, as the book in question was actually posted and printed (we assume) quite a while ago.
We didn't properly double-check the date and thought it to be new (an odd assumption since we previously responded in much the same manner to the book when it first appeared).
However, our error is also our gain, as it gives us a chance to point out again how effective OWS has been even while failing.
The reason for this is that globalists do not in the short term need their themes and memes to succeed in terms of societal acceptance. It is enough to postulate a dominant social theme to act on it.
In this case, the one-percent meme is being used to demonize off-shore investors around the globe whose only crime was to park money in accounts not sanctioned by the state.
In return, the West is using bribery, subterfuge and outright intimidation to gain access to these names. The onslaught is as sudden as it is pervasive and shows conclusively how many governments are acting "as one" these days.
The OWS thesis is being forcefully recycled because anyone who dares object can be demonized as one of the wretched "one percent."
It doesn't matter that OWS has not caught on around the world as the equally artificial counter-culture movement caught on in the '60s. What matters is that the rhetoric is available to be utilized.
And it is a violent rhetoric.
The reference to violence is no accident. DeGraw is one of the theorists of Occupy Wall Street, and his perspective is that the World Bank, the IMF, Wall Street shops and other entities are causing monetary destruction on a massive scale. DeGraw used to leave central banks out of his description, from what we recall, but now includes them.
What we have been experiencing is not the result of an unforeseen economic crash that appeared out of the blue with the collapse of the housing market. It was certainly not brought on by people who bought homes they couldn't afford. To frame this crisis around a debate on economic theory misses the point entirely. To even blame it on greedy bankers, while essentially accurate, also misses the most vital point.
This crisis is the direct result of a strategic economic attack on the existence of a middle class and democracy worldwide. The stock market and economy have become weapons of mass oppression manipulated by an imperial banking cartel to impose order and exploit the masses. This crisis boldly represents the manifest evolution of the fascist spirit reasserting itself as the dominant ideology.
Any fairytale notions of the United States being a democratic republic built on the rule of law have been utterly dispelled. As a nation we have been bred and conditioned to be dangerously naïve to the darker forces which operate beyond the spotlight of the mainstream media. We have been blinded to what has been developing throughout the world.
The economic imperialism that has now blown-back to the United States and Europe has been evolving for decades and can be directly traced back to the end of World War II, to the birth of the CIA, International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank. For those of us who have been paying attention to economic imperial operations that have been carried out against countries throughout the world, this looks all too familiar. The IMF and global bankers have conquered the second and third world, and they have now moved on to countries within the first world. Western European and American working classes are in the cross-hairs now.
Economic and societal indicators, along with recent G-20 policy decisions, clearly demonstrate that they are carrying out and escalating systemic economic attacks throughout Europe and the US. To put it in technical terms, the United States government has been taken over by a financial terrorism network. They have bought off leaders of both the Republican and Democratic parties, and have established a dominant role in all three branches of government and throughout the mainstream media. They have complete control of the economy, stock market, US Treasury, Federal Reserve, World Bank, IMF and global banking system. Free market capitalism has collapsed; it's now a rigged global market. This is an organized criminal operation, an imperial fascist movement that is determined to destroy our very way of life.
A war has already been launched against us. In just the past three years we have lost an unprecedented amount of national wealth, trillions upon trillions of our tax dollars have been looted by Wall Street, endless wars, enormous subsidies for the most profitable global corporations and tax cuts for the richest one percent of the population. Never before, in the history of civilization, has a nation been so thoroughly and systematically fleeced. This is all the result of a coordinated economic attack by a global banking cartel against 99 percent of the US population.
Until we can become politically intelligent enough to see this as the reality and root cause of our current crisis, we will not be able to overcome it, our living standards will continue to decline and we will all be sentenced to a slow death in a neo-feudal system built on debt slavery.
The average American is horribly naïve to just how depraved, corrupt and addicted to power this banking cartel is. Through their control and domination of the mass media, they have kept their crimes against humanity out of public consciousness. We have been shielded from the global devastation and death toll that they have already wrought. The result is an unsuspecting population of confused and passive people having their future ripped out from under them, right before their eyes, without any organized defense or resistance.
We can see from this extreme language that DeGraw and others like him want to take dead aim at a "cartel" that is driving the world toward ruin. Unfortunately, this cartel in the estimation of DeGraw and others includes a gamut of one-percenters that total, as near as we can figure, millions.
But the problem is central banks and globalist institutions themselves. The UN, World Bank, IMF, etc., were actually created by only a few men and wealthy families. If you remove the globalist system itself, especially the BIS and central banks, the problem is solved.
Without monopoly fiat money, many of the problems associated with modern society will disappear, especially the ability for Leviathan to fund its endless military excursions and authoritarianism generally.
But Occupy Wall Street has never been about that.
Occupy Wall Street points to millions of bankers, lawyers, accountants and others as part of the "one percent" that need to be blamed and that will eventually experience "violence." This is not a responsible analysis but a prediction of a kind of French Revolution. And it is apparently an entirely cynical and intentional analysis.
Those running Occupy Wall Street are whipping up hatred and envy against millions of well-off people. This is extremely dangerous.
Again, it is a most cynical exercise – and one that is being funded and organized by a magazine called Adbusters that apparently has a relationship to, wait for it …
George Soros. And Soros works for those who want to blame the "one percent."
This is no idle conversation now. As we pointed out recently, wealthy people with offshore accounts are being attacked around the world. There cannot be a discussion about their transgressions – such as they are – because the larger conversation has already been poisoned by this idea that the "one percent" are the cause of the world's problems.
What Occupy Wall Street is doing – what the rhetoric is accomplishing in casting the net so widely – is to create the conditions for a modern-day French Revolution.
The French Revolution, unlike the American Revolution, was based on class-envy and a rich versus poor mentality. It polarized French society and its after-effects linger to this day in a suspicion of free-market forces and an affection for a certain kind of "strong man" authoritarianism. In other words, not only was the French Revolution incredibly bloody ("eating its own children") but the results poison French Society to this day. This is apparently the legacy that the current cop of "French Revolutionists" have in mind for the West.
Why is such a fate being advanced? Again, the point of creating resentment is to confuse the issue. Occupy Wall Street and other such inventions help the top globalists shift the blame away from them. They are still at it and if people of good will and intelligence do not fight back by explaining and verbalizing the truth of what is taking place, then, as the title or a recent famous move explained … There Will Be Blood, and lots of it.
That's what "they" want. Out of chaos, order.
