The New World Order Currency Crisis

Posted on

I heard Phil Valentine, a local radio neocon shill say yesterday that the Greeks were selfish for not going along with the banker imposed measures to ‘save their country.’ Evoking the JFK message of “what you can do for your country,” he and others like him are setting the stage for an austere future where ‘we the people’ are to be the ones who will not only pay but take the blame for not doing our part. Save the bankers, the politicians, the elite and maybe you will save yourselves will be continuing propaganda ploy.

Just as in Greece, many around the world will not fall for it. It will not be pretty.

US faces same problems as Greece, says Bank of England

Message to the Future

Posted on

Peter Chamberlin

This is written for you, the survivors. Two or three years ago, I decided to write this message to you. My only intentions were to find the best solutions to the nightmare visions and ease the suffering billions of souls who were scheduled to pay the final price of a world system based on greed. There is no sense in having a nightmare vision of the future that you know is real if it cannot be shared with others today, in real time. Warning of an impending massive fatal mental illness as a timely prescription for avoidance is an act of futility, in a population inured of life and deaf and blind to any signs of greater “Life.”

I write to the future because it is you in the future who can see the terrible price levied against the human race and the planet itself by this evil cabal of ultra-wealthy men who have taken upon themselves to establish their mastery over the entire world. My purpose in writing you is to place in your hands the explanation for the devastation of your lives and to remove any doubts that you might have that the ones who did this to you and yours might be trying to save the species, or that it might have been a gigantic series of accidents. The old order, and all that was secured by it, were systematically destroyed, in order to stage the greatest robbery in history.

In some ways, not that much has changed; the same power elite still owns a controlling interest in most of the earth’s resources. The wealthiest few own a slightly larger percentage of these resources than they did before the war and the great collapse, only now, their hands have been untied from previous legislation and popular opposition so that they might freely remove large numbers of “useless eaters” from their balance sheets. I suspect that the time is not far-off when they too shall face their own day of reckoning, and by God’s hands or those of man, the mighty shall be brought low.

Right now, under the guise of the “common good,” they are reorganizing the world into a more easily managed configuration, to facilitate the flow of wealth towards the center, which they alone occupy. Pretending all the while to be laboring to “revive” the collapsed financial institutions which they have laid waste, the new global order is secretly being given life. Under the new order, the economic powers have risen above governments, subduing all the nations under pyramidal schemes of “financial aid” and largesse. The collapse of the world into the waiting hands of the power elite was not a natural event, part of the evolutionary process; it was a carefully contrived event.

We see the problem clearly, men of ultimate means, have sought to protect their prosperity by looking into the future through whatever means available, even by attempted occult means. Through deliberation and oracle consultation, they truly sought to see the future, so as to avoid economic pitfalls and to take advantage of all available opportunities.

These wise and delusional men concluded that the human race will self-destruct without outside intervention. The exploding human population will surely consume itself or destroy the planet in their quest to consume and to procreate. In mankind’s best interests, the wise men concluded that they had to save mankind from himself (since God wasn’t going to do it). From there it was a small step to the realization that if they were the only ones intelligent enough to see that the majority was too dumb to survive its own excesses, then they must be superior humans. Just like the mythological “fallen race” theories cited from the earliest human history, these men saw themselves as replacement gods.

The obsessed “superior” humans took it upon themselves to design a grand plan to save the human race from itself. A small segment of this elite group of forward-looking “superior” humans wasn’t convinced that mankind would self-destruct, so they were determined to do everything within their power to make sure that we did. An even smaller group of this malevolent group, the wealthiest most powerful leaders, knew to the depths of their souls that the prophecy of desolation would come and that all of it was simply part of the ancient evil plan. These were the true believers in the power of darkness. They are the heart of the cabal, above all the secret societies which their predecessors have created to breathe life into the plan that is as old as mankind itself.

What they had seen was not a fixed, inevitable outcome for the human race, even though growth in population and technology will inevitably combine into an explosive mixture conducive to wanton destruction. The plan is to systematically stimulate this explosive mix, keeping it moments from detonation at all times, to produce a sufficient catalyst for change. By skirting along the edge of total destruction, while fully utilizing the subliminal powers of modern media to convey the message that we are headed for certain destruction, the men who play with fire could carry-out their brainwashing program based on a strategy of tension.

The elites are convinced that they can maintain control over the people long enough to carry-out their mind-splitting psyop through their behavioral sciences of crisis management and conflict resolution. Society could be slow-cooked in this way until there was a communal desire for release, at a time of the master manipulators’ choosing.

For centuries initiates have known the planned future (See: Albert Pike, H. G. Wells). The wealthiest few have maintained and facilitated their grip on power over man by methodically gaining and exploiting the deepest scientific understanding of human nature within reach. For centuries they have known that man could be driven by his needs and his fears and be drawn by his desires. This taught the evil plotters that humankind could be conditioned by the proper application of this knowledge forcing mankind into accepting a new economic arrangement that was even less favorable to them than the present system (which is hopelessly skewed towards the rich).

Possession of this knowledge reinforced the idea of personal superiority among the elite, giving sway to even more extreme and outlandish abuses of their fellow man. A doctrine of the “superman” developed among the elite, who saw themselves as the “New Man”. If they alone could foresee and plan for the great realignment of the earth then surely they were the new man, destined to be overseers of their inferiors. They considered themselves to be evolutionary steps beyond man, the first “post-humans”.

The self-appointed overseers took to their task with a voracious appetite for increased profits and a desire to see the filthy masses of “humans” convinced of their own status as mere cattle to the more advanced economic wizards. Scientists, doctors and intellectuals were recruited by the thousands to serve the master class, each of them enamored of the adoration showered upon them in gratitude for their willing service to the growing empire. The financiers endowed foundations, libraries, hospitals and universities, where these geniuses could develop their knowledge of pharmacology and the behavioral sciences to devise the most certain methods for bending the minds and the wills of the subjugated species. The more that they gave the more they embraced the idea that their crusade for greater profit was an evolutionary advancement of the species.

They developed and applied scientific techniques for manipulating human consciousness that amounted to full-spectrum warfare, directed against all systems of power and against all individuals. Normal human associations that society had constructed for itself over the centuries had to be disrupted, so that a new totalitarian system of control could be substituted at the center of all human interactions. The world of the fascist “new man” had to be brought into being. All of our greatest artists and intellectual writers had been describing this new predetermined future in detail, for many years; they were giving life to an image and implanting it into our imaginations. From podium to pulpit, hired guns for the empire pounded it into our skulls that “survival = control,” the human race could only “survive” if we surrendered total control of our lives over to the ever-expanding center.

The fascist center has expanded the war against the human race by focusing their attacks upon our children. The educational system became a battleground for introducing divisive “progressive” ideas into young minds. Transcendentalism and Hegelian dialectics represented new fronts in the war against freemen, now recognized as a war against thought itself. After this incendiary attack upon morality and truth, opposites became easily transposed over known realities, creating widespread doubt in established belief, particularly religious beliefs. Through our own confiscated money they have financed a school system that is focused entirely on dumbing-down every one of our children (except for those “gifted” ones absorbed into the system), through the concerted system of “public education” devised by the thoroughly evil man John Dewey.

The Federal Reserve Act of 1913 gave the conspirators what they had always wanted:

“Give me control of a nation’s currency and I care not who makes the laws.” Mayer Amschel Rothschild.

The dark overlords could now open or close the money tap at will, leaving everyone who had any dealings with America or its banks vulnerable to outright extortion. Through the power of the purse, economic shockwaves were generated over the earth, leading us directly into the First World War and the ensuing Great Depression.

With the election of FDR and his New Deal social programs, a sizeable portion of bank funds were placed beyond the bankers’ reach, an unacceptable situation where Roosevelt actively righted some of the great wrongs that the great Robber Barons were busily committing. This led the plotters to attempt an actual coup by approaching war hero Gen. Smedley Butler to raise a private army for the purpose. World War II brought an end to the depression and ushered-in a new age of patriotism that made it much more difficult to get away with any actions deemed unpatriotic.

This led the super-capitalists to take an openly benevolent approach to misleading the people, through the creation of a multitude of “humanitarian” foundations to study society’s problems. Unsurprisingly, one of their first “discoveries” was the “population explosion.” Discovered by accident, while researching why devastating wars had produced accelerating birthrates amidst all the gloom and desolation left in the wake of modern warfare, analysts identified the “baby boom” produced at the end of the great war. The results of their calculations and modeling projections provided them with tangible proof that the boom would trigger a human catastrophe of Biblical proportions.

Armed with this revelation, the world’s elite went forth to convince the world that every nation had to reduce its birthrate, in order to avert the coming inevitable cosmic tragedy. Their warnings and recommendations fell on deaf ears; the world’s population continued to skyrocket. With the certain knowledge that the cattle-like “human race” would never voluntarily do the wise or correct thing, even to guarantee its own survival, the masters of our world set-out to increase the world’s death-rate. Suddenly new exotic diseases and multiple regional wars began to break-out all over the globe. Sectarian and class-fueled conflicts became common, especially in strategic resource rich areas of the planet.

But all of that was not enough to satisfy the masters of death, millions more had to die. It became necessary or logical for them to create a universal enemy, to unite mankind in dedication to a state of permanent total war. Through large transfers of cash, governments all over the world were persuaded to secretly wage war against their own citizens. The “war of terror” became the acceptable euphemism to describe this process of government staging terrorist attacks against its own citizenry. The alias “al Qaida” was given to the network of intelligence agencies responsible for dispensing the terror. In every nation government agents bombed, shot and kidnapped their own citizens (in the CIA’s case, attacked inside other nations as well) to make examples of them, in the process of terrorizing the people of the nations into surrendering their own freedom for the hope of survival.

After many years of this kind of physical abuse, the final phase of the takeover has gotten underway in the Middle East and in the ongoing economic collapse. This is the mechanism whereby all assets are moved into the overseer’s hands. As predicted, the vast majority people are screaming to save them by saving their banks. The people are willingly giving their assent to the use of their savings, they will also willingly give their permission for the government to take the final, supremely ultimate steps of waging total global war to eradicate the unseen, nonexistent enemy. We are being rushed to our own destruction and most of us will be happy that the government “made the effort!”

This is the pre-collapse world envisioned by the elitist bankers and the other “supermen” for so very long now. This is the world that must be resisted when it rears its ugly head against you and your families. This is the future that no one is willing to fight against now, before it becomes a finished fact. This is the world envisioned for so long by the evil “post-humans” and now, before the fact, by a mere handful of scholars and counter-researchers. Before communications had developed enough for modern researchers to find the hidden truths about our overseers, only Prophets who had received wisdom from a superior unknown source had understood the depth of the evil that dwelled within the hearts of some men.

No normal human could conceive of such a monstrous evil; this is our only excuse.

So this is the message I leave to you in the future, surrounded on all sides by the most venomous evil this earth has ever known. Take hope in understanding that both Jesus Christ and Mohammed (Peace Unto Them Both) foresaw your time of struggle. Both of them foretold of a greater life and a greater earth that would emerge from this epoch, after the time of resistance end is brought to an end.

Protect your families, whatever it takes! Resist the new order in every conceivable way. Just remember why you resist and the price of continued surrender. Look around at what our surrender has cost you.

God be with you.

The Break Up of the USA into Six Parts

Posted on Updated on

How it might look in the future?

This speculation might not be as far-fetched as it seems now to most people. We are in a wait and see mode if the US economy will collapse and if the federal government will default on its debts.

A breakup of the US may even be a part of the globalists game plan. Divide and conquer always seems to work.

But what if the globalists plans have gone so awry that that have lost control and we have to fend for ourselves and think more locally and regionally than nationally and globally?

We are in a place where our constitution is nearly void and so a re-structuring and return to the roots of liberty may be necessary and a long term solution. Smaller is always said to be better.

If the federal government disappeared could we really align with neighboring states to create a new regional alliance?
Could this be possible without corruption?
How would trade work with the other new ‘nation states’? What kind of currency?

How would a new ‘government’ evolve?


Defensive militias would form but I can’t see armed conflict with the other areas, after all they would be fellow former citizens. False flag attacks might render that point moot.

Internal squabbles would persist, a least for a good while. Many would have their own ideas how the new format should work.

The collapse of the welfare state would definitely bring violence to the inner cities which would spill into the outlying areas for at least 50 miles from the major populations centers. Crime in the rural areas would also be a problem. Illegal immigrants would be scapegoats to many so a lot of them would head back to where they came from, if possible. Everyone would be armed.

For a long time survival would be the key issue. We would have to work together or die.

Too many questions. No good answers.

I would have no problem with the southern states coming together but I would prefer that Texas be in that mix with us.

Perhaps the only alternative to stopping the break up of the US would be the immediate arrest of those at the top of government, the Federal Reserve and corporate/financial criminals. Many, many arrests. Send a message not only to the US citizens but to the world.

But who is going to do this?

Only in a worse case scenario will even a few Americans stand up to do the right thing, whatever that may turn out to be.

On 24 November 2008, Professor Igor Panarin, in an interview with Izvestia, said that the USA is heading for collapse, and will break up. (Russian analyst predicts decline and breakup of U.S. )

Panarin, 60, is a professor at the Diplomatic Academy of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and has written books on information warfare.

Professor Igor Panarin said:

A. “The dollar is not secured by anything.

“The country’s foreign debt has grown like an avalanche, even though in the early 1980s there was no debt.

“By 1998, when I first made my prediction, it had exceeded $2 trillion.

“Now it is more than 11 trillion.

B.This is a pyramid that can only collapse

“It is already collapsing.

“Due to the financial crisis, three of the largest and oldest five banks on Wall Street have already ceased to exist, and two are barely surviving.

“Their losses are the biggest in history.

“Now what we will see is a change in the regulatory system on a global financial scale: America will no longer be the world’s financial regulator.”

When asked who would replace the U.S. in regulating world markets, he said:

“Two countries could assume this role: China, with its vast reserves, and Russia, which could play the role of a regulator in Eurasia.”


C. Asked why he expected the U.S. to break up into separate parts, he said:

“A whole range of reasons.

“Firstly, the financial problems in the U.S. will get worse.

“Millions of citizens there have lost their savings.

“Prices and unemployment are on the rise.

“General Motors and Ford are on the verge of collapse, and this means that whole cities will be left without work.

“Governors are already insistently demanding money from the federal center.

“Dissatisfaction is growing, and at the moment it is only being held back by the elections and the hope that Obama can work miracles.

“But by spring, it will be clear that there are no miracles.”

He also mentioned the “vulnerable political setup”,

“lack of unified national laws”,

and “divisions among the elite, which have become clear in these crisis conditions.”

Map from: American Civil War – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

D. He predicted that the U.S. will break up into six parts

1. the Pacific coast, with its growing Chinese population;

2. the South, with its Hispanics;

3. Texas, where independence movements are on the rise;

4. the Atlantic coast, with its distinct and separate mentality;

5. five of the poorer central states with their large Native American populations;

6. and the northern states, where the influence from Canada is strong.

E. On the fate of the U.S. dollar, he said:

“In 2006 a secret agreement was reached between Canada, Mexico and the U.S. on a common Amero currency as a new monetary unit.

“This could signal preparations to replace the dollar.

“The one-hundred dollar bills that have flooded the world could be simply frozen. Under the pretext, let’s say, that terrorists are forging them and they need to be checked.”

Creative Destruction: The Solid Core Behind the Financial Crisis

“There is great disorder under heaven, and the situation is excellent.” — Chairman Mao

Fed’s $85 Billion Loan Rescues Insurer (NY Times)

The bailout [of American International Group]… effectively puts taxpayer money at risk while protecting bad investments made by A.I.G. and other institutions it does business with.


Do you get it now? The rich and powerful spend years making foolish deals in a market they rigged with the connivance of utterly corrupted politicians on both sides the aisle; their fraudulent scheme finally collapses, exposing them to some of the most horrific financial losses in history….and YOU will have to pay for it. For generations. Not only directly, with the tax money straight from your pocket, but even more so in the further degradation of national life: infrastructure, services, programs, amenities that will be starved or abandoned as even more of the government’s money is poured out to shield the wastrel elite from suffering the consequences of their own rapacious folly.

And with all the talk of a “new Cold War,” who knew that it would be Washington and Wall Street, not the Kremlin, who resurrected socialism in the 21st century, in what the Times called “the most radical intervention in private business in the central bank’s history”? Socialism for the rich only, to be sure. Ole Joe “Bankruptcy Bill” Biden and his bipartisan cohorts in Congress have long made sure that any ordinary citizen — especially the old, the sick, the poor, the most desperate — will be squeezed to the last drop to pay off their debts, even if these were incurred through illness or misfortune. But for our boardroom Bolsheviki, the state is always there, to cushion and to coddle.

And who knew there was so much money in the federal coffers? Endless, roaring torrents of money available for the ever-expanding operations of the global Terror War (up to $3 trillion for the rape of Iraq alone), and all of this on top of an ever-expanding “regular” military budget that tops half-a-trillion dollars each and every year. And now tens of billions for Bear-Sterns, Fannie Mae, Fannie Mac, A.I.G. and the next fat-cattery to go under. Gosh, you mean all that cash was just lying around under the federal mattress all along?

You mean we could have used some of it for, say, building schools and hospitals, or national health insurance, or rebuilding our globalization-gutted cities, or drug rehab programs, or caring for our elderly, or helping people start businesses, or repairing our rotted infrastructure, or supporting the arts and sciences, or building parks and other “common pleasures, to walk abroad and recreate yourselves”? You mean there has been enough money there all along to help create a more just, equitable, enjoyable and civilized society? Don’t that beat all?

Well, there will be none of that now, thank god. Even if a party that was actually committed to the well-being and security of ordinary citizens (a description that of course excludes the ticket of “Wall Street Barry” and “Bankruptcy Bill Joe”) were to somehow take power one day, they will be hogtied by the mess left behind by the elite’s financial boondoggles and their many wars. They’ll be lucky if there is enough spare cash on hand to buy a few sandbags the next time a hurricane turns toward New Orleans, much less address any of the massive civic, social, economic and infrastructural disasters that confront us.

But of course no ticket committed to such a thing will ever be allowed to get near the White House. That game too is now as rigged as the market. Arthur Silber explains this double-rigging in rich detail in a recent piece: “The Vampire, Struck by Sunlight.” You should read the whole thing, but the passage below is particularly apt for the current situation (see original for links):

Those people who have followed the foreign policy catastrophes of recent years are repeatedly struck by this phenomenon: all the “experts” who are supposedly so knowledgeable in this area — that is, all the “experts” who led us into the catastrophes and who were grievously, bloodily, murderously wrong about every significant matter — remain entrenched in the foreign policy establishment. Moreover, they are precisely the people to whom everyone turns for the “solution” to the disasters that engulf us, both now and the disasters likely to come. This is what it means to have a ruling class. As I have said, the ruling class rules. The ruling class exercises a lethal monopoly on the terms of public debate, just as it exercises a lethal monopoly on the uses of state power.

What you have seen over the last six months and more, and what you will see in the coming months and years, is the same phenomenon in the realm of economic policy. All of the solons who led us into this abyss of mounting debt, worthless securities, failing financial institutions, economic contraction and collapse, rising taxation, and all the rest, will now instruct us as to how we should “solve” the crisis that they have created. The crisis may be ameliorated to a degree, and the worst of the consequences may be postponed for a while. But whatever “solutions” are implemented, whatever reorganization and reregulation is imposed, it will all be done in accordance with the ruling class’s desires and goals. It will all be to protect their own wealth and power to whatever extent is possible, and to expand their wealth and power still more….

The ruling class is the state. The state exists to serve the interests of the ruling class, and only the interests of the ruling class. They may promise you greater unemployment benefits, better health care, and a host of other government benefits — all benefits also paid for by you, please note (the ruling class does have a sense of humor, after all; vampires are often crudely funny creatures) — and those promises will cause most Americans to fall for the con still one more time.

Whatcha gonna do? Not a goddamned thing. Vote for McCain! Vote for Obama! It doesn’t matter. The ruling class wins either way. The ruling class always wins. That’s how the system was designed, and that’s how it works. For the ruling class, it works very admirably.


That last observation by Silber is perhaps the most telling, and frightening of all: despite all the disasters raging around us — the wars, the atrocities, the tyranny, the economic collapse — the system is working. It’s doing exactly what it’s supposed to do: serve the rich and powerful, guard and protect them, entrench them in their rule. Just like John McCain says, the system is fundamentally sound.

P.S. And for those who believe that the current conniption somehow presages the collapse of the American empire, please note that the sound system of elite service described above is backed up by the most powerful military machine in the history of the world (including a nuclear arsenal that can obliterate any nation at any time), directed by a militarized state that has never shown the slightest hesitation in using violent force against its own people should they step too far out of line. It’s not going to collapse overnight because of a well-cushioned crash on Wall Street or a few botched wars. It still has many miles to go – and much blood yet to spill – before it faces the inevitable axe of history.

What will America look like in two years? – Joe Bageant

Posted on

https://i1.wp.com/badattitudes.com/MT/JoeBageantCharicature.jpg

A letter to and response from Joe Bageant

Joe,

In “Life in the Post Political Age” posted on your web site, the anonymous political consultant wrote:

“His very presence, the color of his skin, the very strangeness of his name is the best guarantee of his betrayal of the expectations of the constituencies that will vote to elect him. Barack Obama is in short order a far more reassuring prospect for the continued dominance of the financial elite than another four years of neo-conservative rule which in an almost historically unique combination of greed, ill will, incompetence and stupidity have brought the country to the edge of disaster.”

OK Joe, broadly I agree. I suspect McCain is going to win anyway, so can I invite you to write up what America will look like two years from now on the other side of the disaster’s edge?

Cheers,

Andrew
Oxford, UK

——

Andrew,

I can tell you a few conclusions at which I have arrived (without going into the years long process by which I arrived at them):

America is now a totalist state. This seems not so apparent because of the glossy “commercial skin” over everything. Shining goods, much meaningless commercial activity, the energy of every able person dedicated to profit making activity in the name of “the economy,” which has become god, yet no one can define it except in the language of Wall Street and the stock market — a faceless god in itself. Interestingly, the stock market goes up when people are paid less or more people are unemployed, etc., yet people have accepted its terms as the definition of their well being.

The rise of this state has required increased police forces and heavy-handed enforcement, thus we hold one-quarter of the world’s prison population, though we are only six percent of the earth’s population.

The elections are an illusion. A totalitarian state loves nothing more than elections, which gives the illusion of choice on the part of the people. The people, after so many generations of this illusory choice, believe it themselves.

America is already a second world nation, but the aforementioned shiny commercial skin and charming digital gizmos leads the citizenry to believe otherwise. No health care, no guarantee of anything really, except competitive struggle with one another for work and money.

Americans are presently comfortable because we have always been very materialistic from the beginning. And so comfort and goods have always trumped thought and morality. But now that natural resources are being heavily stressed globally, we are left without enough concern for the common good to save ourselves as a unified entity. The problem with American style democracy is that it is all well and good to say, “I owe no man anything. And no man owes me. I am free unto myself.” And, unfortunately, alone. No grasp of the common weal. And so we are left to depend entirely upon the state to do everything man does collectively, while we are each left to seek out the latest personal comfort or amusement.

Neither comfort nor amusement are boundless. And never do they replace or fulfill the moral and philosophical.

There is indeed a sort of unease. But not nearly so much as you might think. And that unease is inchoate because the language needed to describe its causes has vanished into, or been neutralized by the state’s economic consumer culture. There is almost no discussion of the meaning of anything, just the emotionalism managed by politics, marketing, etc.

And so the big “debate” about Obama vs McCain is really an emotionally based one of “good guy” vs “bad guy” dressed up in non-issues. The real issues are of course, global, ecological, population, etc. But the capitalists who sponsor all the candidates can never respond to the disappearance of fundamental resources underlying American comfort (the extravagantly wasteful but profitable lifestyle.) The notion of an inexhaustible world of resources is central to the idea of constant “economic growth” upon which capitalism is founded.

The American economy will at some point collapse completely. Americans cannot believe that is possible. In fact, they think a devaluation of currency means total collapse. Yet you Brits have experienced at least one in my lifetime — and you are still doing OK. No American believes such a things can happen here. Despite the nearly one million home foreclosures underway, each believes it cannot happen to him. (Remember, he owes no man and no man owes him. Those who lose their homes are not his concern.)

It’s going to take what most people outside the US would consider a ridiculous level of disaster before most Americans understand that something is deeply wrong with the trajectory of their nation. Personally, I think we are years away from that realization — decades away if we can steal enough oil and keep printing enough fiat currency to keep the public fooled.

No candidate is going to deal with any of these larger things because:
1. It is political suicide to even mention them.
2. There is no commonly accessible language in which to publicly discuss real and very serious weaknesses in the American system. There isn’t even an opposition party, just one party. The party of business, wearing two masks.

Even the best of humans here are left with only the illusion of a humane candidate — Obama. He has become a cult figure, a messiah to some, merely because they know that at least he will not attack other nations without reasonable provocation. And that, my friend, is a sad state of affairs. Choosing a president simply because he is not a cold blooded killer. Of course, there is an equal number who would choose a candidate because he IS a cold killer — it makes them feel safer.

Meanwhile, I am of the same camp as the rest of Americans. It’s still quite a comfortable place to live — if you don’t mind living in a police state, living a life with only two parts, the inside of your house and the inside of your assigned workplace. I am stuck here in the US for a while on book business, Fortunately, when I am here I tend to be satisfied with alcohol and television, so at this particular moment I have no complaints. I am truly an American.

In art and labor,

Joe

The Future Of Personal Transportation In America

Posted on Updated on

Saturday, June 28, 2008

Here’s a glimpse of the future, from Emily Wax and Ria Sen in the Washington Post. I’ve added some photos and a few comments.

Fuel Prices Boost Cause of S. Asia’s Maligned Rickshaw“.

The bicycle rickshaws that weave through New Delhi’s narrow lanes have long been scorned by authorities here for congesting the city’s already fierce traffic. The creaking carriages crawl alongside luxury sedans, book hawkers, horse-drawn carts, hulking buses and cows.

In this city and the other quickly modernizing capitals of South Asia, governments have called the rickshaws backward, embarrassing symbols of the Third World.

Now, however, in a time of $7-a-gallon fuel in New Delhi and growing concerns about pollution, environmental activists and transportation experts are pushing back against rickshaw critics. And rickshaw cyclists are seizing the moment to tout the virtues of their trade.

“My rickshaw is my life. It’s very cheap for my passengers,” said Saurabh Ganguly, a 27-year-old rickshaw cyclist whose shirt was sticky with dirt and grime. He proudly observed a knot of traffic where about 50 rickshaw cyclists were jangling their bells, pressing their horns and zigzagging past lumbering buses belching plumes of black soot. “We don’t even pollute,” Ganguly said. “We should be allowed to survive.”

Survival has been tenuous for bicycle rickshaws here. Last year, New Delhi banned them in the old walled neighborhood known as Chandni Chowk, one of the capital’s most ancient and crowded shopping bazaars, as well as on main roads. While the ban has not been aggressively enforced, rickshaw cyclists say they often pay bribes to keep working.

The rich get richer and the poor pay bribes to keep working.

An international nonprofit group, the Initiative for Transportation and Development Policy, challenged the ban in India’s Supreme Court this month, saying current economic and environmental conditions have made rickshaws more necessary than ever.

“We must save the cycle rickshaw drivers. Look at the soaring fuel price hikes,” said Nalin Sinha, program director for the group’s New Delhi office.

“These bikes are wonderful alternatives. They provide an affordable, smog-free choice,” Sinha said. “But unfortunately, when the whole world is talking about the environment, we in South Asia are talking about ‘development.’ We somehow think we are better if we have hordes of swanky cars.”

We’re even worse: we think we’re better if we have hordes of junk!

There is anecdotal evidence that ridership has increased in some South Asian cities as customers look to save on transportation costs. Sinha said his group is studying the issue.

New Delhi’s Center for Science and Environment is also pushing for the court to overturn the ban in Chandni Chowk. The group has pointed to increases in the city’s pollution and in the number of children with asthma, blaming the growing number of motor vehicles. India’s economic boom is adding nearly 1,000 cars a day to the capital’s streets.

“We should be building bike lanes to provide the cycle rickshaws a humane driving area for many reasons. Let’s face it, fuel prices are only getting higher, and here we have an alternative right in front of us,” said Vivek Chattopadhyaya, the center’s pollution researcher. “If we keep banning them, we will regret this in future generations.”

Some activists in India cite the increasing number of bicycle rickshaws being used in cities such as London, Paris, New York and Washington, often in neighborhoods with high congestion and heavy foot traffic. Local governments have welcomed the rickshaws as environmentally friendly alternatives.

Here’s a situation where it makes perfect sense to “think global, act local”. Want to do something for the environment? Sell your SUV, buy a rickshaw, and get an honest job for a change!!

There are an estimated 600,000 bicycle rickshaws in New Delhi serving an estimated 4 million customers. Trips range from one to six miles. The rickshaws — many festooned with flowers and tricked out with paintings of cartoonish Bollywood starlets and cricket stars — usually charge less than 50 cents a trip. On a recent monsoon-drenched afternoon, two female college students shopping for jeans said they were taking a bicycle rickshaw as an alternative to increasingly pricey taxis and auto-rickshaws, also powered by gas.

Indian women and children tend to take bicycle rickshaws more often than men because the rickshaws are seen as safe compared with overstuffed buses and unknown taxi drivers.

“We love the peaceful and private ride and the breeze,” said Shweta Goyal, 19, an English literature major, as she settled in for a ride. “I like that the price is never impacted by fuel hikes. To me, it’s a lovely way to do some shopping as a woman.”

In Bangladesh’s traffic-clogged capital of Dhaka, where there have been widespread protests over the rising prices of rice and fuel, rickshaw cyclist Shamsul Haque said business has never been better.

We could use some widespread protests ourselves. And some widespread rickshaws.

“There’s been a turning point suddenly,” said Haque, 25, a father of two who moved from a rural area to get a job as a rickshaw cyclist. “Our customers know we are cheap and very friendly.”

Cheap and very friendly? Not me; I’m just cheap.

Some government officials have a different view.

“The rickshaws are popular in the walled old city like Chandni Chowk, but they can lead to large amounts of congestion,” said Pawan Khera, secretary to the chief minister of New Delhi. “It’s also not so easy for them since there are so many different kinds of motorized traffic on the roads.”

It’s not so easy for them because of the polluting traffic that’s stopped in their way. So let’s ban them. That’ll make it easier for them!!

Khera said cycle rickshaws will always have a place around the city, but perhaps only in certain areas. New Delhi, meanwhile, is working to curb pollution by expanding the metro rail system and requiring new buses to run on compressed natural gas.

On a recent day in Chandni Chowk, rickshaw cyclists could be seen sweating and straining as they conveyed passengers through the city. Amid the chaotic lanes lined with sellers of Rajasthani slippers, fresh lime soda and incense, a few sari shoppers loaded stacks of wedding clothes onto one rusty old rickshaw. Their fare would be a quarter of what it would cost to drive or take a taxi.

“We do a proper job for everyone,” lamented Mohammed Avip, 35, a rickshaw cyclist nearby. “Why does the police and government harass us so?”

Maybe they just need somebody to harass, somebody from whom to extract bribes.

Did Mohammed Avip ever think of that? Did you?

When our mechanized civilization is all over except the crying, before the radiation poisoning has killed absolutely everybody, wheels will still roll and people will still roll them.

Prepare yourself or not; it’s your choice.

But don’t say I didn’t warn you.

Their Next Moves Towards Total Control

In a recent interview to the mainstream media which for some reason or another received more exposure in Europe than America, the incorrigible NWO-proponent, David Rockefeller made a quite remarkable admission. The 93 year-old billionaire stated on record that he STILL picks up cents he finds on the street! Not surprisingly, this fact was picked up on by so-called “right-wing” bloggers who went on to gleefully portray it as marking him out as displaying a “typical Jewish” character trait. The whole tone of their reporting of this disarmingly frank admission on Rockefeller’s part was one of scathing satire. They sought to pillory Rockefeller over his penny-pinching for its dubious humor value, yet singularly failed to look beyond it. This was a rather unfortunate omission on their part which we will attempt to remedy here in this article.

Anyone who knows anything about the way the world is run will know that Rockefeller is one of a handful of global ‘kingpins’ who have shaped this ugly world in which we live in the fashion of their own craven image. To present this issue solely as a points-scoring exercise to ‘get one over on the Jews’ is a total cop-out. We are not talking about some wacky, Jewish pawnbroker or tailor or theoretical physicist or whatever else it may be the Jews typically gravitate to, but rather a man who, through his vast wealth and intimate, high-level contacts with others, has marked him out as what Huxley (in the original Brave New World) described as a “World Controller” – he and his fellow Satan-worshipers (no kidding!)formulate the Plan – the Jewish Agenda – and their underlings comprising presidents, prime ministers, kings and queens subsequently implement it supranationally. There is now precious little, if any, escape from it anywhere in the West. Wherever one goes, regardless of the Will of the people, this Agenda is being inexorably rolled-out, like it or not.

In which ever country we reside, though the names of the governments and political parties may change, this illusion of choice renders true democracy utterly impotent. There is NO real, meaningful democracy now in the US, Canada, Britain, France and Germany, to name but five out of an untold number of countries among which this virus has become endemic. In the US, we have ‘One Party with two Names’. They’re essentially no different beyond a little superficial varnish and style of logo. It’s the same in Europe. Choice is an illusion and leaders are not elected, but SELECTED by the likes of Rockefeller in the US, his fellow Jew, Evelyn (Baron)Rothschild in London, and ‘good friend of Israel’, Rupert Murdoch in Australia. The circle of this ultimate power is rather wider, but is dominated as one might expect, by Jews who all share Rockefeller’s pathogenic craving for money. Phaedrus believes that when a 93 year-old billionaire – of any ethnic background – can’t keep himself from picking up nickels in the street, then something is desperately wrong with said person.

Such a person is not acting rationally, and it’s NOT a subject for humor any more than it is for sympathy. Behavior such as this is pathological; it’s a form of mental illness. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want somebody with this character trait running the Western world. There must be no room for these sickos in any sphere of policy formation for they are clearly ill and out of touch with reality. Worse yet, Rockefeller has intimate designs on us which his aforementioned underlings are in the process of developing under the guise of “real ID” – which on the face of it sounds innocuous enough, which is just how it’s supposed to sound (to begin with, anyway) however in reality it is everything BUT harmless. Rockefeller and his kind want everyone micro-chipped. They want EVERYONE to be implanted with a tiny device, little bigger than a grain of rice, that will tell the authorities exactly where each of us is and who we are with, every minute of every day, for as long as we live. The technology is already here. It is now simply a matter of implementation. This is the tricky part, but sadly it is far from an insuperable barrier as we shall see below.

The initial reaction of most decent people on hearing about this program is understandably one of deep suspicion. It brings Big Brother right up to our faces and it ain’t pretty. The Jews know this – and they’re smart people. They’ve contrived a P-R charm offensive which will mollify the worst doubts and fears of the majority of citizens. And to be fair, the arguments they will use to push this measure through are very powerful. They’ll tell us that we’ll no longer need to worry about passports at airports to fly, nor at the bank to draw money. They’ll tell us that our children will never again be at risk of kidnap or abduction by strangers. They’ll extol the fact that any spouse that’s in breach of a restraining order from seeing his family will be instantly identified as having strayed outside his court-sanctioned area and will be picked up and arrested before he or she can do any harm to his or her estranged family.

And it doesn’t end there. They’ll further induce us with the prospect that from then on in, there’ll be no more wrongful convictions. Suspects will be back-traced to the precise moment a murder or robbery was committed to see if they were indeed present at the crime scene. There’ll be no more need for flawed alibi evidence and no more false alibis. Only the guilty will be convicted; the innocent exonerated. Furthermore, crooks “on the run” will become a thing of the past as there will be nowhere for them to hide with these tracking transponders buried deep under their flesh, flagging their location to the government every few seconds. Eventually, EVERYTHING we need will be on these chips. We won’t need to take any ID or money with us when we go on holiday. Our passports can’t then be stolen, neither can our cash. We have to face the facts, here, guys; the arguments in favor of micro-chipping are very hard indeed to counter – certainly for the average Joe of limited intelligence, at any rate. Of course, to those of us acutely aware that the REAL agenda is very much less benign will already be seeing many grave dangers that this technology threatends.

For an overview of how such a potentially invaluable system might be misused, we need not, however, resort to our fevered imaginations, for David Rockefeller has already spilled the beans in some off-the-cuff remarks he made earlier this year. What did he let slip? Pretty much what you might imagine. Since we’re all busy people and time is short, let’s summarize his exposition on the matter. What follows is not verbatim, but it’s the gist, the guts, the essence of what he revealed:

The plan should require little compulsion until the latter stages. Initially it will be rolled out for the protection of children and most parents will welcome it. Even if it WERE made compulsory for ALL children to be micro-chipped, the vast majority of parents would willingly consent to it, since the protection of their kids naturally comes above all else in any decent parent’s mind. Next, the folks in the prisons will be chipped; petty crooks included. They’ll be told they’ll be eligible for earlier release on parole now the authorities can keep total tabs on their whereabouts. Most prisoners aren’t too smart and will readily submit to any initiative that gets them out of the slammer earlier than would otherwise be the case. Further on down the line, citizens’ chips will carry more financial information on their tax status, their CV history and so-forth, and employers will be encouraged through tax-breaks, to only hire workers who are so chipped. All the while an ever-shrinking group of libertarians who have resisted signing up for implantation will find living their lives increasingly difficult due to essential services becoming less and less available around them.

In the final stages of the roll-out, it may become impossible, in a then cashless society, to even buy basic groceries at a supermarket if you haven’t been chipped-up, as all your money will be on the chip and your salary will be credited directly to it. There will be no fine-defaulting in future as any fines you incur will be deducted remotely from your chip. Likewise, child-support payments and such like. Running off and setting up home someplace else under a new name will no longer do any good for deadbeat dads who try to evade their responsibilities towards the children they have fathered. This will all sound fairly sensible to Joe Public on the face of it. Chipping undeniably confers many benefits – if administered by a benevolent government, of course. But Rockefeller and his cohorts are very far from benign. When asked to consider the civil rights aspects and what might happen in future if protesters or dissidents subsequently formed the view that the information held on their chips had become too extensive, intrusive, or was being misused, he replied, “Oh, well, those people will have simply have their chips turned off. They’ll become essentially non-persons.”

Phaedrus wonders how dissidents and activists such as ourselves would manage in a cashless, cardless, passportless future with our identities and our savings summary stripped from us. It could be pretty tough to survive! And doubtless that is exactly what THEY will wish to ensure for anyone with the audacity to say “NO!”
