Uhhh…, tax reform? Education reform? War on drugs? War on poverty? Help America vote? Perpetual wars against terrorism? The Patriot Act?
Seriously? Duhhh… If you don’t know by now… you’ll never ever know.
It is ever so easy for the ruling class to take advantage of perceived and actual problems—by introducing solutions that do not truly benefit the public-at-large. Instead, the proffered solutions substantially advance any number of agendas of the “power elite” themselves. It is a classic example of the Hegelian Dialectic: problem->reaction->solution (thesis->anti-thesis->synthesis). It is a great way to persuade the citizenry to accept something that actually is not in their best interest.
For the commonweal, perhaps it is necessary to understand this divide-and-conquer strategy. The power-elite uses it to keep the status quo in their favor. Many people are fixated on labels such as liberal, conservative, democratic, republican, etc. Meanwhile, the very wealthy are truly united. Consequently, the gap between the rich and the poor is increasing; the middle class is disappearing. Welcome to the modern version of a third-world nation.
At the highest levels of decision-making, the Democrats versus Republicans dichotomy becomes blurred, and substantially disappear. Things are not always what they seem, as their ostensible motives conceal their true ones. Practically speaking, it is analogous to playing “good -cop/bad-cop” in a police interrogation room. For, in the final analysis, they all serve the same master: the international ruling class (“power-elite”). Such real power and control is manifested through the financial institutions; it is largely enforced via the media, national security, intelligence, and military apparatuses. “Divide-and-conquer” strategy takes care of the rest. This inertia is built into the system. So, is it such a surprise that—at the lower levels—the citizenry question little, and effectively “police” themselves?
The cold reality is that the “deck” is stacked against the ordinary person. Far too often, even if a particular group or cause wins a victory against the ruling class, it is actually a hollow or Pyrrhic victory. You can rest assured that—at some point in the future—the global ruling class will take back the value of what they gave away, with interest. Don’t you realize that they can manipulate world affairs to such an extent that you are more than happy to allow the government to take away your rights? Out of fear, you’ll all too willingly give up your rights—even those guaranteed by the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. What a scam!
Those in power will always seek a way to control and dominate—if not one way, then another. Who can say for sure how they will do it tomorrow?
Case in point: The House of Rothschild has been playing these types of manipulative games since the Napoleonic Era. In the long run, they always seem to win.
“Qu’ils mangent de la brioche” or “Let them eat cake.” is a quote which folklore commonly attributes to Marie Antoinette, a past Queen of France.
And, as the Borg (cyborgs) mantra (of Star Trek fame) goes, “Resistance is futile.” After all, the powers-that-be truly believe that this is their world—and we are just in it.
If the common man is able to survive on crumbs and scraps long enough, then there will always be a glimmer of hope—in the midst of ominous despair!
