Jump into your time machine and let me transport you back to another age.
Death by a thousand cuts.
Hmmm... Inevitably, the United States, Canada, and Mexico are going to merge into a North American Union. That is to say, if the international ruling class has its way; and, it usually does succeed in its plans, one way or another.
Never let a good crisis go to waste.
Unfortunately, this will necessitate a substantial decline in North America's overall standard of living. Of course, the middle class—as we know it—will be disappeared. Also, it means the imposition of a "police-state." Well, the best way to implement that state of affairs is in response to a crisis, such as prolonged, mass civil unrest. Such a situation will arise if there is a breakdown in the social, political, and economic structure.
It is no wonder that the ruling class is overwhelming the United States’ finances by creating situations whereby more and more people are becoming dependent upon direct governmental financial assistance or some other form of governmental assistance, e.g., food, medical, and housing. This became especially more prevalent in the aftermath of the deliberately planned and executed global economic collapse of 2007-2009. And, look at the sabotage of the K-12 educational system and the exploitation of financial vulnerabilites of college students.
Also, recall that during 2001 thru 2008, there occurred the suspicious turning off of the U.S. southern border enforcement, which greatly facilitated and encouraged the immigration of some 25 million undocumented immigrants, which ultimately depressed wages, drove up the cost of real estate in many areas, and also necessitated substantial increases in spending on government programs and services to accommodate that group, e.g., education, food and health. And now, the current administration is criminalizes the immigration of the very group of people whom the power-elite previously exploited to advance their agendas. How patently hypocritical and unjust is that?
It's almost as if the United States and certain other countries are slowly being prepared set up for some sort of immense social-restructuring program. It is necessarily occurring in stages: in fragmented bits and pieces, across a diverse spectrum. In such an event, there would be no worries concerning potential disruption or destruction of vital manufacturing centers—during any potentially resultant periods of great civil unrest. Most of the centers are now safely located in China. China has a relatively stable and strong central government, untapped raw materials, and an abundance of cheap labor. Also, China has very weak environmental laws and plenty of “virgin” territory, ready for polluting.
This distinct possibility is simply a logical extension of Rex 84. That master plan has several related components which are inextricably bound. There are plans for the “continuity of government.” Plans exist—and so do the facilities—to contain and control any major conflagrations of civil unrest and disturbances.
And of course, appropriate measures must exist to ensure continued access to raw materials as well as the protection of our manufacturing capabilities. Hence, it necessitated the off-shoring of our manufacturing base to Asian countries, primarily China. Don’t just look at the obvious. It is not only about cheap labor. Moreover, the ruling class’ ostensible motives conceal their true ones.
The United States moved so much of its manufacturing base to that country. Domestically, that resulted in many factory closures and millions unemployed. Also, the U.S. provided China with so much of its technology and know-how in order to jump-start their manufacturing boom.
The ruling class has sold out the American citizenry to communist China. There is no concern about its human rights abuses and deprivation of civil liberties.
Why did the United States fight all of those brutal, long and costly wars against communism? Why did it sacrifice so many lives, apparently in vain? At the end of the day, it seems as if all the power elite were upset about was—that the communist countries would not allow our banks and corporations to take advantage of their natural resources, cheap labor, lax regulations, and wide-open consumer markets.
What a sham and a scam! Remember the so-called "monolithic communist threat?"
It seems as if the ruling class is quite clever at generating fear to justify absurd wars. However, their ostensible motives usually conceal their true ones.
This may seem like a stupid question, but... Is it really such a surprise that communist China is using some of its economic profits to boost its military capabilities? Why on earth are the Western powers providing China with most of their technology and manufacturing know-how? Why did they move so many of their manufacturing capabilities to China?
They are knowingly assisting China in its efforts to transform its military from a paper tiger into a ferocious lion. Meanwhile, the global elite class is getting rich off of China's cheap labor and their largely untapped consumer base.
Since 2001, when the Western powers admitted China into the World Trade Organization, China has conveniently adopted certain capitalistic policies and practices. However, it still remains a largely repressive and authoritarian police-state. In comparison, it is somewhat ironic that the United States has become more like China. It has curtailed far too many of its citizens’ liberties and freedoms—under the guise of fighting the “war on terror”. Perhaps that reciprocal arrangement was the key to China’s allowing the Western elites in as investors. (Shhh… nudge, nudge, wink, wink!)
Whatever happened to America the beautiful, land of the free and the home of the brave?
We now live in a constant state of fear, as the United States government has been officially operating under a state of emergency since 2001. So, say good-bye to the traditional American way-of-life, and the American Dream; for, they have sprouted wings and flown away—forevermore. Say hello to the contemporary version of a third-world, fascist, police-state of a nation into which the United States is, slowly but surely, being transformed. And it’s all being brought to you courtesy of the global power elite. (Thank you very much!)
Brilliant post Trosoft, however, very '1984'.
Those ten points listed by Mr. Astore could be a sure-fire winning platform for a party wishing to win an election. Just saying.
"William J. Astore, a retired lieutenant colonel (USAF) and professor of history"
A professor of history compares the US to Soviet Russia. And people are surprised Americans are totally ignorant of history..
" It seems as if the ruling class is quite clever at generating fear to justify absurd wars.However, their ostensible motives usually conceal their true ones."
That paragraph is sooooo true!
