Scotland Fails But Europe And The World Remains Mired In Secession Movements

I have written ad nauseam on here over the years about the state, class, hierarchy and the elements of discord and outright violence, predation and exploitation that states create.  Nine, six even three years ago, most people may have labeled my writings as extreme or out of the mainstream.  Not today.  It no longer works to label people who agitate for peaceful, nonviolent (non-state, community-based) solutions to the countless issues facing humanity.  Issues created through state violence.

While many people aren’t yet at this point yet, they will realize in due time that the state cannot fix the issues facing humanity.   

There is a very mainstream view amongst state liberals that all we need is more power granted to the state to solve our issues.  That is what created Hitler, corporate domination in democracies, the British empire and the Soviet Union.  And that is what has now created what I would classify as the destruction of the United States.  The elites in this nation and around the world have worked diligently to overturn our founding principles into one of state domination by class and hierarchy and the privilege that is afforded to those constructs through state violence. 

In these times one has to ask oneself why does the state exist?   And it takes digging deep within to often find that answer.  The state exists for one reason.  To perpetuate violence on behalf of those granted privilege by the state.  Contrarily, why does self-rule exist?   It exists to preserve, protect and serve the rights of man.  All men.  And to do so without state constructs of class, hierarchy or violence.  These rights aren’t granted by state actors, hierarchy, class or privilege.  These rights are granted to us naturally.  They aren’t ours to try to take back.  They are our birthright.  We grant these rights to ourselves and allow public servants to enforce those rights through our consent.   One more time, we grant these rights to ourselves.  And when we don’t, we allow others to take them from us.  Freedom from state violence and oppression requires diligence.  It is not granted to the weak and Godless.  It is granted to those who recognize their own divine right through the power of our own divinity.  

There are so many things I have written about with regards to this dynamic that at the time were considered extreme, lunatic or fringe.  Although they were all nonviolent.  That is, a restoration of State’s Rights.  A restoration of a form of governance granting the vast majority of power to local self-rule.  A restoration of an Articles of Confederation-type system pushing Enlightenment Principles down to empowered citizens.  Stating that this cycle could be coined the end of big.  Stating that large state constructs including states themselves will shatter this cycle.  That we are likely witnessing the end of corporate capitalism and could be witnessing the end times of the state.   No one else was writing these things when the world was seemingly experiencing unprecedented prosperity.   But look at how the world has changed.   People are awakening everywhere to the truth that always existed. 

This system of governance in the U.S. and around the world will never be able to solve the issues facing humanity today.  Ever.  This system of governance created these issues.  We will see mass change in governance around the world.  Possibly even systemic failures and attempted reorganizations of nations around the world.   This is the most profound moment in the history of human social evolution.  Ever.  Another long-time thesis on here.

There is extreme prejudice and ignorance in many who view the U.S. as the reason for all of the violence we see around the world.  That isn’t based on any type of factual analysis.  Rather it is driven by bias and beliefs.   The U.S. is trying to control much of the chaos, oftentimes for its own self-serving benefit, oftentimes for the right reasons, but is not the cause of it.   The Middle East chaos would be happening without the U.S. because it is the home of the most repressive, violent, exploitative organized states anywhere on earth.  The cauldron in the Middle East is created by the shithole of state violence and state theocracies in the Middle East.   These predators have turned Islam into a form of fascism similar to Nazi Germany and they use it to exploit and control the masses with incredible brutality in many ways even worse than Nazi Germany.   Ditto with the chaos in and around the former Soviet Union and its breakaway states.  China too is probably the most ethnically-diverse nation on earth and most of those populations are experiencing or have experienced genocide on a mass scale and are on the receiving end of mass state violence.   State violence around the world is often cloaked in many ways people simply will not acknowledge.  They refuse to see evil.   Instead, they place their faith on false prophets.   This is what is behind the support of China and Russia in lieu of the U.S.   Useful idiots who place their faith in other states rather than in their own higher power and granting themselves and those under the repression of these states the natural rights they deserve.  The communist party in China, as just one example, is extending its violent grip of the people under its control in what most believe is its transformation to a modern society.  That truth will reveal itself soon enough.   

Some highlights created by the Scottish drive for independence in the last few days include:

One in four Americans open to secession.

The next eight places in Europe that could vie for independence.

Europe’s secession panic.

Super rich in rush to buy gold.  I threw this in based on my endless analysis of gold.  The predators who control the world also control gold.  And that is the way it always has been.  More people worshiping false prophets and the Golden Calf rather than the truth that resides within them. 

This cycle is not getting better and it is not going away.  Nor are the secessionist movements which are simply part of the awakening to the great evil in this world.

China Shovels Money Into Its Too Big To Fail Banks … Again

Title link here.  States around the world are trying to print useless money at any cost to save themselves from a fundamental issue of too much useless money printing.  If it sounds paradoxical, that’s because it is.   Who ever said the state was brilliant?  The US has seen housing prices go up 25% a year in some overly heated markets.  China has seen housing prices go up 25% a month for years.   I met someone half a dozen years ago whose father was an officer in the Chinese military.  He had bought a $200,000 house on a $4,000 annual income because he received special favors as a communist party member.   That was six years ago.  How much is that condo worth on paper today?  You ain’t seen a real estate bubble until you see one in China.  This is unprecedented in scope and scale.  Imagine how much money had to be printed for this to take place?  Take Federal Reserve policies and multiply them by 30x, 50x, 100x? 

Another interesting story here.  New trade agreements allows China to sue Canada to change its laws.  More of that good ole state violence at work. 

China faces its hour of truth.  This is a nice look at what has been discussed over the years on here.  It may show up as premium content that you have to register for.  If so, simply type China faces its hour of truth into Google and the search result will give you free access.

China’s Gold Demand Implodes

It has been quite a while since I have posted anything about gold.  But, I have written extensively about the shiny metal over the years.   I have accurately called major moves in gold through the use of my trading system, including nailing close to the absolute top in gold.  I have talked endlessly about the clear flaws of those who view gold as “honest” money and discussed the cruel history of gold as money.  That is, gold has always been used by those who control or own most of it to victimize those who don’t, be that the state or state actors or banks.   Gold as money is a feudal concept that values the god of ownership over the freedom of people.   In a feudal society, people are repressed and ownership of gold, resources and assets is a brutal and cruel indicator of wealth.   In a free society wealth is not derived through the hoarding of scarcity, assets or resources such as gold, equities or land but rather the “monetization” or capture and socialization of that which free people do naturally.   That is, produce, create and invent.  A free society is an abundant society with enough for all to share.

Where exactly did anyone learn that gold is honest money?  Someone who owned or controlled a lot of gold told you that.  Most likely a state predator or someone who worked on behalf of taking from those who have little through state violence.  The attachment to gold is driven by ego and all of its vanities, selfishness and outright evil.   Those who spout the benefits of owning gold are the same people who have accumulated large quantities of it through state violence or participating in the exploitation of humanity.  Pure self-interest.  The same self interest that drives gold miners around the world to literally destroy millions of acres of land, communities, water supplies and ecosystems with their horribly toxic mining methods.

Gold is a religion.  It is an ego-driven belief system created out of fear and ignorance.  That fear-based belief system keeps people from connecting to the greater truth that resides within every sentient being.  Fear you say?  Yes, fear.  How many people who hoard large amounts of gold would give it all away to those who have nothing?  Their attachment to gold is driven by fear.  And the thought of them giving their gold to those from which they have taken everything places their mind in a state of fear.   This fear-based belief keeps them ignorant and creates blind spots in their ability to experience truth.   This fear and attachment to gold keeps people from connecting to their higher power, to Allah, God, their own divinity or whatever you are most comfortable calling the place in your mind where unconditional love and human values resides. 

Attachment to gold is nothing more than worshipping the Golden Calf.  Democratic money is liberal and abundant money.  It is fiat money.   It is not fiat money controlled by class, hierarchy, corporations and the state.  Frankly, that monetary system has never existed and it most likely never will.  Because money is an institution of the ego created by the state for one purpose and one purpose only.  Control.  The only system of trade that is just and true is barter.  Something that I have noted many times is likely to be the world’s next trade settlement system. 

All of these words have come across this blog time and again.   And so have the words that the day would come to pass when China would no longer be able to afford to keep buying gold.   Yet this very belief is what has driven gold’s high priests to state that the future of gold prices remains bright.  The gold high priests mocked such a position when I was first writing those words.  Now China is starting to reveal itself.   Now gold’s high priests have a new fear being losing their gold.  It is that China may not be the future demand for gold that so many told us they would be.  The gold bulls continue to believe that gold is going higher.  As I noted some time ago, the participation rate in the gold futures market has literally collapsed and is down 90% by some measurements since it’s implosion from its all time high. 

Can gold worshippers push gold back beyond old highs with rapidly waning liquidity around the world?   Well, where is that money and leverage going to come from with so many global economies now spinning off less and less profit and quite a few now in outright recession and depression?  More gold bailouts by central banks, the very institutions gold worshippers tell us that gold will protect them from?   How paradoxical is that belief system?  Gold has been bailed out by central banks time and again through their endless pump of liquidity to prop up asset prices for the benefit of the aristocracy.   So maybe money and leverage needed to push gold higher come from stocks?  Bonds?  Real estate?  Who exactly is going to be the counterparty trade that allows the status quo to offload these or other “investments” at such stratospheric valuations?  Do tell.     Who is going to take the trade for Apple at a valuation of $700 billion or Facebook at $200 billion?   Those who believe states like China and Russia or elites converting all of their cash to gold don’t tell us that doing so would trash every nation’s economy that tried to do so.  And, the last time I checked, you can’t eat gold.  I suppose some outlier that I am not aware of is possible but the data I see doesn’t support gold retesting old highs at this point in time.  

It appears over the last handful of months that the earth under China’s massive Ponzi Scheme may finally be shifting uncontrollably.  Speak of which, who the hell is still offering to give China dollars at the pegged yuan exchange rate?  The minute there is any whiff of  risk, China is going to have to break their peg and watch their currency implode.  Interestingly too, Switzerland, a country that the aristocracy loves for its secrecy and culpability in endless financial and war crimes against humanity, has been considering a return to the gold standard.  I have written about this as well.  That the return to the gold standard would collapse any economy that attempted it by suffocating the money supply.   Well, and I wrote years ago that we may see a day when criminal elites attempt to return the world to the gold standard to lock in their gains while sending the rest of us off of an economic cliff.  But they would fail.  

Gold could easily collapse to its 1998 lows.  Or, if money loses its ability to conduct commerce and trade, as is clearly possible, gold could become essentially worthless.    

All of what is written above is a synopsis of what was anticipated on here over the years.  Gold is not honest money.   Nor are those who control it and the propagandized memes and beliefs they create, actually anywhere near honest.   One cannot serve two masters.  It is either money, greed, gold and attachment to worldly possessions or truth. 

 China’s gold imports start a staggering dive.  Is this temporary or the start of a new trend?

Pope States WWIII Is Already Upon Us While Obama States The World Is Less Violent Than It Has Ever Been

The diametrically-opposed statements of the Pope and Obama highlight a major dynamic in the world today.  That is, the tyranny of belief systems.  The only way Obama can make a ludicrous statement that the world is less violent than it has ever been is that his ego has created a belief system that keeps him from recognizing the truth unfolding before his very eyes.   Belief systems are illusions created by the ego out of fear and ignorance.  They subvert the truth that experiences offer us.  They also disconnect us from the Divine.   The reality is the world is experiencing an unprecedented evil, suffering and violence on all corners of the globe.   And, Obama, or more broadly, the state and its actors, plays an instrumental role in perpetuating today’s violence. 

Many years ago I wrote that we were entering a war cycle.  That was well before any of the lunacy in the world we now see actually presented itself.   Well, it’s now starting to bloom.  The Pope’s comments that the world is on fire is a confirmation  of the overarching theme that has defined my writings for the last nine years.  That is, the world is in a cycle of volatility, and that volatility will manifest itself in all aspects of our perceptions of reality.  That includes the natural world.   How self-evident that has become on so many levels.

Humanity has the power to stop the war cycle and I will eventually post what I am confident is necessary for that to happen.    Right now, I wouldn’t bet on those dynamics coming to pass.  More suffering is on the way courtesy of the disconnected ego and its self-victimizing beliefs.

British Political Thugs Pull Out The Demagogy For Scotland: There Is Something Special To Be Ruled By Authority Of State Violence

I’m not sure what is so special to be ruled by landed gentry who steal everything from society and give nothing in return.   Or to watch lords, queens, viceroys, princes, earls, dukes, barons and other useless, self-appointed assholes extract their lifestyle through renter economics while you get to slave away at McDonald’s.   Let me add in there CEOs, CIOs, CFOs, corporate presidents, boards of directors and other self-appointed privilege  in the corporate state are no different than the titled aristocracy of the state.   What lords and barons are to state violence, corporate titled authority is to corporate violence.  How would the world ever survive if someone wasn’t always granting themselves special privilege that others weren’t privy to?    How would the world ever survive without such theft and cronyism?

I’m the boss.  You do as I tell you.  Why?  Not because what you are told is virtuous or even beneficial to society.  But because I tell you.  More of that telling us what to think rather than how to think.   How interesting would life be if economic entities were based on truly free, uncoerced organizational constructs that were spontaneously and voluntarily created out of agreed to social principles and existed only at the whims of all of the people who were in “employment” of them?   That would be economic democracy.   Then there would be no self-appointed corporate authority or self-appointed corporate king and their courtiers ruling an empire.  An empire where you are their wage slave.   It’s really no different than living under dukes, queens, barons, viceroys or whatnot.  The whole precept of private capital and labor that defines the contentious and violent foundations of corporate capitalism is truly a form of evil.   It’s just as sinister as communism or any other ism.  

Once again, government exists as a form of self-rule.  It is locally-focused and determined by We The People.  The state, contrarily, exists for one reason and one reason alone.  That is, to perpetuate violence on behalf of these state actors be they corporate authority or political authority or corporate political authority. 

There is nothing special about being part of the United Kingdom.   That’s nothing more than political demagogy manipulating people’s emotions.  The very term Kingdom connotes tyranny.  There is something special to determining your own economic fate, your own free will and connecting with your community to help create the fate of the human family and the world around you.   That is essentially a stateless world.  A world defined by communities rather than the manifestation of state violence in some far off halls of power determining your fate without you even knowing they are doing so.   That’s why Scotland is even having this vote. 

In many ways this vote from Scotland doesn’t really matter.  If it passes, it will be profound and could start another chain reaction around the world.  That includes in other parts of the United Kingdom including Quebec.  We could even see New Zealand, Australia and Canada sever their relationships with the British crown.  But it’s really much more profound than this as I have noted ad nauseam for the last nine years.  We are living through a new Age of Enlightenment.  People are reconnecting to their own power.  People want their freedom.  And it is the state who stole it from them.   That dynamic is only going to intensify.  It’s not just about economics.  It’s not just about the horrendous mess politicians and corporations have made of our lives.  It’s far more profound.  And it isn’t going away regardless of what happens in Scotland’s vote.

A similar article is written in the Scotland Herald.  Sometimes the comments to online journalism are the most telling.

England Blinks And Offers More Bribes To Scotland To Stop The Momentum Of Its Independence Movement

A discussion point talked about on here ad nauseam is how brutal and corrupt Britain is and always has been as a hierarchical, class-based state.   Britain as a nation has outright murdered tens of millions of people in its own holocausts going back centuries.   In modern times the British empire has murdered more people than the Nazis as I have linked to in the past.  

Any state that still has royalty and birthright privilege as defines Britain just as it does the brutal and useless thugs in the Saudi royal family, is an affront to humanity, dignity, equality, justice and freedom.  Welfare for the rich, welfare for class and special privilege granted through crony rank and title like lords, queens, viceroys, prince, earls, dukes, barons and other useless, self-appointed assholes is only possible through state violence.   In fact, the reason why the U.S. has become such a repressive nation is because it looks more and more like Britain in its adoption of corporate and private banking power we fought the Revolutionary War to rid ourselves of.  I have noted in past posts how, at the time of the Revolutionary War, homelessness, poverty, addiction, joblessness and “voluntary” conscription to military service was rampant in England but nonexistent in the colonies.

It should be no surprise that even in a time of supposed freedom that exists in Britain in modern times, that both Ireland and Scotland still fight to rid themselves of English rule.   There is a clear reason for this.  It will be a glorious day when the supposed queen and her family of moochers and parasites and other titled  clowns in England are made to work at Sainsbury for minimum wage to survive just like everyone else.  That is exactly where they would be working because they have no skills other than being a parasite.   And, mind you, being a “gentleman” in England means eschewing work.  That’s for poor sonofabitches that English royalty exploits for their surplus value.  It should be no surprise that England is home to the vile invention of corporate capitalism and the corporate state.  

This is something I have noted many times over the years is going to happen.  That we are likely to see the possibility of states shattering into smaller and smaller pieces.  Now it is upon us and we can see it manifesting itself globally.  China too is ripe for that as well given it is quite possibly the most ethnically-diverse nation on earth and the ruling class of predators in that nation have been involved in ethnic cleansing ever since the controlling communist thugs took over. 

The world is shattering into pieces and shards.  And it is because of state violence.   Really, it has only been over the last century that globally the state has been able to tighten its grip on all of humanity.  Before the twentieth century masses of people lived without the state being involved in their lives.  Even if they lived within a state, there was little, if any, true involvement in their own determinism.  Now, the state has its jack boot on the entire world.   Every new “problem” that humanity experiences, as defined by the state, involves a solution of greater and greater state violence as the answer.   The state’s days are numbered.  And it could come much faster than most anyone imagines.   We could easily see states fall like dominos in coming decades.

The Fascist American State: Snowden’s Leaks Expose Government Plans To Spy For Corporations

The U.S. is a corporate empire.  The outsized military we have is not to spread democracy but to ensure corporate control and the expansion of U.S. corporate exploitation, victimization and predation around the world.  This has been talked on here time and time and time again.  Does anyone in this nation with an intent of discovery and truth not appreciate this by now?  I doubt it.  

Anyone who believes subjecting themselves to a “career” serving corporate power is a manifestation of freedom is willfully ignorant.  I wouldn’t bet on this mythical career being a sustainable future dynamic.   People never had careers as wage slaves until the advent of corporate personhood. 

What is worse?  The subjugation of humanity to a tyrannical form of forced state socialism or communism like the Soviet Union or China or the forced tyrannical subjugation to five hundred or a thousand or a few thousand corporate bureaucrats who dominate every aspect of our lives.  Yet, who care even less about serving the needs of society than a communist bureaucrat might?  Because their first intent is exploitation (violence) aka profit.    As noted on here many times, corporations can only exist in perpetuity by extracting rent.   There are many reasons to believe corporate tyranny in the name of profit is even more brutal and violent than communism.   Did any neighborhood in the Soviet Union look like Detroit?  We have tens of thousands of neighborhoods and communities that look like post-apocalyptic war zones.   In the end, what’s really the difference?  All isms – communism, socialism, feudalism, capitalism – are simply manifestations of state violence.  Does it really surprise anyone that the government would spy on behalf of profit-driven corporations?  Corporate capitalism is a form of state-created and enforced economic warfare against humanity.   It always has been.  There are no historical examples of anything different for those who ignorantly wax poetic about the good ole days.

Corporate capitalism is by definition fascist.  Corporations and private, for-profit capital only exist through the force of the state.  The comingling of those forces that rely on each other for their existence are inherently fascist.   Can we get beyond playing useful idiots for corporate dominion over our economic freedoms?  A start would be the repeal of corporate personhood; one of the greatest crimes against humanity perpetrated by the United States Supreme Court.

The Life Of Joan Rivers

Comedy is such an instrumental part of our existence.  Laughter truly is the best medicine.   If Hamas, Hitler, Mao and Stalin would have laughed more, they would have hated less.  Joan Rivers was far and away one of my favorite comedians.  For me, the only other comedians that were of the same caliber were  Greg Giraldo and George Carlin.    Fundamentally the question of our existence is if we left the world in a better place than before we entered it.   In a world devolving into the madness of the disconnected self, Joan is a reminder of how many make profoundly positive impacts on the world around them.  And how they do so by rejecting the dumbed-down ignorance of social conformity and political-correctness.

Billary Chases Billionaire For Handouts, Eric Cantor Goes To Work On Wall Street And French Socialist President Hates The Poor

One of the long-time themes on here is that both political parties in this nation will collapse.  There is no way they will morph into something different like the Tea Party or the Occupy Movement.  To believe that is to not understand how that is impossible.  Political parties are registered corporations that only maintain their authoritarian grip on our nation by embracing the comingling of aristocratic money and politics.  This guarantees party hacks, some of the most vile excuses for human beings, are elected through mass propaganda paid for by private money.    That is why both political parties have infiltrated and tried to disarm both the Tea Party and the Occupy Movement.  There is a mathematical game theory explanation of how this outcome is almost certainly guaranteed.  That is, failure.

Many of our founding fathers wanted to ban political parties and now any halfwit knows why.  If there were no political parties, each candidate would have to run on their own merit rather than on the coattails of party money.   There is no way Hillary Clinton or Eric Cantor could ever get elected as public servants if their ability was actually the determining factor in their election in lieu of endless dirty money. 

As noted on here many times, at some point in evolution of humanity, politics will disappear.  It is a useless institution of the ego of state-created class and power.  Frankly, as noted on here also, at some point the state will cease to exist for the same reason.   I’m sure most people would never believe that to be possible but I suspect more and more are considering its possibility given what we see around the world today.  All of the violence we see in this world today of any scope or scale is a result of state violence.    One must consider the greatest evil in the world is the state.  The state exists for one reason.  That is, to perpetuate violence on behalf of class rank and privilege that enrich itself through that violence.  Corporations, bankers, royalty, lawyers, politicians, religious lunatics, bureaucrats of any sort, etc. all derive their power only through violence.

Hobbes’ views on social contract theory are now being proven to be bullshit babblings of a statist aristocrat.  And because it benefited the state, his views had been adopted as a prevailing theory and taught by the state.   I didn’t sign any contract nor can anyone imply that I submit to one simply because I was randomly born into some geography.   I never made any such contractual choice to be “ruled” by an authoritarian system of the most vile examples of humanity like Bill & Hillary Clinton, Eric Cantor or their corporate masters in corporate capitalism.  I wonder how many of Carlos Slim’s wage slaves, from whom he has stolen nearly $100 billion, believe in social contract theory?   Especially if they knew there was a fairer alternative. 

Billary chases Chris Christie to Mexico to see who can first drop to their knees and unzip the pants of the world’s richest man

Eric Cantor gets sacked from Congress but goes to work for an investment bank with a guaranteed income of at least $3.8 million.  I have made it clear countless times on here over the years that I believe there is ample evidence that investment banking should be illegal.  And, in fact, it essentially used to be.  New York Magazine gets it right with their report on influence-peddling which is just a politically-acceptable, propagandized characterization for crony corruption and the rule of moneyed interests that subverts the rule of law.

And, why we don’t know if it is true or simply just propaganda to sell a book, it appears France’s socialist president may hate poor people.  I would imagine this has a high possibility of being true.  State liberalism is based on bigotry, narcissism and self-hatred.  And, anyone who runs away from their parents and their heritage to climb any kind of social ladder of conforming authority over humanity in politics, corporations or whatnot is usually a self-loathing scumbag.

It’s Coming–The Box Office Crash

I wanted to put up this report because one of the long time themes on here is that we are going to witness a collapse of 80-90% in the wages in sports, entertainment, advertising, television and other amusement industries.  Depending on how the future of American empire unfolds, we will see the same dynamic unfold in real estate, lawyers, retailing, economics, insurance, finance, universities, the investor class and on and on.   That includes as much as a 90% reduction in the amount of money going into stocks.  That coupled with the massive leverage of derivatives, debt, money printing and magnified ignorance, and we could see volume of tradable assets literally collapse.   We are already starting to see many markets operate on fumes.   I would argue the market for a $30 million dollar house is no different than a stock market overvalued by many, many times.   Liquidity for that market is already thin and at  some point, liquidity for that market will collapse.    Don’t kid yourself to believe this is only a U.S. phenomena.  This is a global phenomena.   All of this coming to pass is a mathematical certainty.  It’s just a matter of the timing.  All of this is nothing new on here.  It has been discussed many times.   And I will explain it in excruciating and simple detail in due time. 

When I was a kid in the 70s and we still had a marginally-functioning economy rather than a trickle down, supply-side theft scheme, professional athletes had summer jobs.  And they had them because they needed them.  They were the working man’s heroes because they were working men themselves.   Bond trading, which now pays Bill Gross and others millions to hundreds of millions of dollars a year, paid so poorly it could not be the basis for full time employment.   Literally.  Top college football coaches made $50 thousand a year and now they are paid $5 million a year.   It seems normal for Algore and Bill Clinton, two bureaucrats who have absolutely no skills that benefit humanity, to be worth half a billion dollars between them.  Money they obviously took from society without any benefit I am aware of.   Or, for someone who throws a ball for a living to make $30 million a year while 55% of Americans, all of which have or can develop skills to benefit humanity, are on government handouts.  

I could go on and on but we have become habituated to a system of ignorance (class-based, trickle-down voodoo economics) over such a long period of time that it all now seems normal to most.   At least it seems normal to those who support this system and to those who are under sixty-ish.    Yet, it’s nothing more than a belief system based on ignorance.   The reality is money and economics as we know it are both collapsing and have been for decades.   But today all of these professions give the color or appearance of great success and everyone is encouraged to pile into these professions by corporations, politician,  millionaire university presidents who became millionaires by ignorantly pumping this ignorance, and by social conformity or groupthink.

Most people will never accept any of this as possible until it happens.  That’s because it is too frightening to ponder.   Instead, most people think with their eyes.  Another outcome of being told what to think rather than how to think as dumbed-down consumers supporting our corporate state masters in today’s dystopian reality. 

We are told that unemployment is now down to 6% and that the economy has recovered.  The stock market is at all-time highs.  And Obama told us just a few months ago that the world was experiencing unprecedented peace.   Obama (and the world) still dithers while the world burns.  (Don’t ever look to Europe to ever take a leadership mantle in any world affairs.  They are mired in their own massive, liberal-created mess of political-correctness and tolerance for evil as was the case with the rise of Hitler).  I’m sure, as is the case with Obama, in some large part, this is driven by ego.   Here is a person who actually seems to believe much of the savior complex as his true believers initially labeled him.  How can the world be in crisis when I am its savior?   How else do you explain his false beliefs about what is happening in the world?  It is clearly the disconnected ego’s intent of control that subverts discovery and truth.   How’s that working out for you? 

Nothing is believable anymore.  That’s very, very good news, actually.  Because we can never create a new reality until all of these belief systems are shattered.  It’s working out exactly as it should.  Truth, while in very short supply with the status quo, is in greater and greater abundance with most of the people they exploit. 

The Hollywood Reporter has just published a story that box office receipts have crashed this past year.  Adjusted for inflation, they are at a 17 year low.  And the economy has actually been relatively calm.  What’s going to happen when things aren’t so calm?  We could easily see receipts fall to 30 or 40 year lows or something equally catastrophic.   Seeing box office receipts drop by 10-20% is catastrophic when margins may only be 10 or 20%.   To go see movies, people can’t take out seven year lease loans, with the highest monthly payment rates in history,  with horrendous credit reports, and with marginal ability to pay them back at the first signs of economic weakness as they have to temporarily reflate the car market.  It’s all an illusion. 

It’s coming.   The global economy and global social factors are all unfolding exactly as I have written they would.  Just much, much slower than I predicted.  For now.

A Labor Day Post – The Process Of Relearning

I originally posted this back in August of 2008.  at that time the world was just about to change forever.  Soon after Labor Day I issued a warning for readers to seek professional advice on any investments because markets were exhibiting the same behavior that led to the 1929 collapse and the Great Depression.  About a week later, markets collapsed.  The world has changed forever and there is no going back.  Ever.  And ever is a long time. 

Central banking criminals, politicians, bankers and corporations have spent massive amounts of money trying to bring this system back.  Yet, everything has been a failure except the temporary reflation of assets, the vast majority of which are owned by state predators.  There are more unemployed, more underemployed and more on government assistance than ever.   We continue to work our way towards the end.  And that means we are closer to the opportunity to build a new world.  A better world.   A world where we have an opportunity to reject the hate, divisiveness, corruption, rigged markets, unbridled greed and endless crimes against humanity associated with the poverty-creating junk economics of class and state violence. 

The world today, with humanity’s wealth of understanding and knowledge, can eradicate poverty, corruption, unemployment and hunger.  And, we can do it in a merit-based economy that embraces ideals of personal responsibility, accountability and democracy.   We can make a rewarding society that embraces all of the world’s citizens rather than requiring all Americans to compete against each and other innocent people around the world for crumbs while pathology and the house negroes (the professional class) that does their master’s evil bidding walks off with all of the wealth.

Everything that you see today is simply a dream.  It is a dream created by corruption and evil.  The world as we know it only exists because we allow that dream to continue.  But that dream will eventually end.  We will create a new dream.  And we have the opportunity to create a new world void of class-based state violence, corruption, predation, victimization and exploitation.  

To the 90+% of Americans who are, in fact, laborers, including most professionals, happy Labor Day!

Persistent Link Between Solar Activity And Greenland Climate

Two recent scientific publications hammering more nails in the coffin of liberal junk science lunacy.   The nonsensical climate models created by anti-science fanatics in academia and government bureaucracies (the destruction of science by government was foretold by a prescient Eisenhower) is collapsing at an alarmingly fast rate.  Can’t wait to see what our fearless, and willfully ignorant king tries to unconstitutionally pull off in his destruction of the rule of law and our economy.    Hopefully, he will do it before the midterms so Americans can vote on his single-handed, illegal rewriting of our constitution.

Presented with one comment.  Bahahahaha!  Okay, two.  Al Gore and the liberal fanatic attack on science (truth) are finished.

Evil

I think it’s important to call what we see today for what it is.  Evil.  Much of the new age, liberal thinking of if-it-feels-good-do-it has been created to rationalize the extreme levels of selfishness and self-centeredness that is enforced by state violence under the control of corporate capitalism, communism, socialism, etc.   New age beliefs, new age “religions” and new age televangelists who adopt this meme play the role of useful idiot for the extreme level of ego that exists in this world. 

I find it interesting that the ego rationalizes evil is made through childhood trauma without a clue as to what it is talking about.   That includes many of these new agers who simply tell us that evil doesn’t exist.   Or, those in the mental health community who tell us evil is really nothing more than some reflection of our poor childhood.   Where exactly is the scientific evidence for this?  Suffering of our wounded self may be a reflection of our childhood experiences but there is a substantial possibility that evil is born rather than made through experience.  The fact is mental health as a science is in its early stages of development at best and farcical at worst.  There is a zero percent, literally zero percent recovery or cure rate for people that the mental health pseudoscience identifies as truly evil. 

One of the pioneers of mental health as a field of scientific study, Carl Jung,  recognized what was happening in the early stages of the mental health establishment with new, unproven and often unsubstantiated theories.  And he personally noted that it was a grave mistake to believe we understood what evil was.   And, thus, to "medicalize" it as something we understood when we clearly didn't.   Jung was very clear on this topic.   We don’t know what evil is or what causes it.

Given the recovery rate or cure rate for evil by the medical establishment is zero, we can safely assume that poor childhood experiences aren't likely to be the source of evil.   John Wayne Gacy, Adolph Hitler and ISIS fanatics who cut off heads of people who will not submit to their evil are not victims we need to empathize with.  They are evil forces humanity needs to deal with assertively.   One cannot negotiate with evil.  One cannot rationalize with evil. 

There are forces of the universe at work that we have absolutely no understanding of.  I'm not trying to turn this into some religious mumbo jumbo.  Just a recognition of our high level of ignorance of what truly is real and the ignorance that still consumes a vast majority of the forces at work in our existence.   Let’s not kid ourselves.  Evil needs to be identified as evil.  It needs to be called evil.   And it needs to be treated as evil.   We can study it.  We can theorize its existence.  And maybe we can learn from it.  But, in the end, it is evil.   If evil today was called out as evil, I seriously doubt it could survive let alone thrive.   But through the twisting of morality by evil state actors, evil class-based predators, evil propagandists and a still ignorant medical health profession, evil is seldom called out to be evil.   In the new age and post-God world we live in, evil is a superstition that simply doesn’t exist. 

I’m sort of curious.  How’s that working out for you?

Because evil has an intent of control, the targets of evil are institutions of concentrated power and authority.   The most effective institution to accomplish this intent is the state, state institutions and bureaucracies that owe their existence to state violence.   That includes religion and state theocracies that are easy prey for evil.  The list of violent and outright evil acts against humanity perpetuated by the state, state actors and state institutions, including corporations, religion and hierarchical bureaucracies, are surreal and on an unprecedented global scale. 

Most evil is hidden from the light.  Which, frankly, is the only way evil can survive in the face of good or the place within the human mind where love resides.   But it is becoming emboldened to enter the light and in the process is becoming more and more transparent.    Because of this, humanity can now actually stand witness to evil and thus consciously choose its own fate.   Today that transparency is giving us a clear choice to stand to account for what is right and just and true or to willfully and ignorantly turn our gaze away from evil out of fear or self-interest and, thus, allow evil to exist and even flourish.   This is a choice each of us must make.  This is a choice that will determine our fate in this cycle. 

Today, having the light shone upon evil seems to have little recognizable effect on the world.  For now.   This is because evil has not experienced any consequence to its existence in a world so consumed by Godlessness aka kindness, love, empathy, justice, dignity, righteousness, equality and other innate and divine human values.   So it becomes more emboldened.  Collectively humanity has been unwilling to actually recognize evil.  Yet.  In large part this is because we have become habituated to it again because of the propagandized twisting of our morality by authority - state actors, class-based predators and propagandists.    And to a large part because much of humanity today lives in a primitive, disconnected state of fear.   Disconnected from that place within our mind where love and human values reside.  For that reason, evil is literally destroying humanity and our planet. 

After being exposed to evil on enough occasions, one either becomes habituated to it, and thus a tool that evil uses or exploits, or one becomes mindful of it and thus attempts some level of resistance to it.   Whether that is Wall Street, the state itself, war, corporate capitalism, institutions of science, religious institutions and religion, political parties or any type of hierarchical institution that can encourage or even force people to outsource their thinking and personal power to false leaders, false authority, false prophets, false saviors, false science and the like.   The halls of power and control are where evil seeks its haven to exploit and victimize humanity.  

The madness of evil that has infiltrated the state and those who support its endless violence is seemingly all-consuming around the globe.   But remember, that also means state violence may also be reaching its peak or maxima.  Can it truly get sustainably worse?  I think many people can intuitively sense that state violence is reaching a peak.  The only question is whether that peak will result in global, sustained conflict and mass death for humanity.   If humanity does not stand to account against the evils in the world today, this cycle is going to continue to spiral out of control.  There are lunatics in today’s world who would have no problems killing most or all of humanity.  And no compunction of what methods are used to do so.

Today’s evil is a global phenomenon.  And that evil is almost always in some way, either directly, indirectly or covertly, a product of state violence.    The latest incarnation of evil, ISIS, could never exist without the radical, fascist theocracies of caliphate-controlled Islamic states that use their authority to perpetuate evil.   

State violence is certainly not exclusive to the U.S.  as written on here ad nauseam.  In fact, just as I have been pounding the table about, we are now witnessing an evil that is much more brutal and inhumane than the injustices of U.S.  empire.  Just like Nazi Germany arose to be a greater evil than the British empire of that time.   Today, that greater evil is radicalized, caliphate-controlled, theocratic Islam.  And many in Islam recognize this dangerous threat.  

It is no irony that many who blindly hate everything about the United States and refuse to ever acknowledge any of the good it has ever done,  are now finding themselves sided with the enemy of my enemy.   That is, the most evil forces that we see today - Hamas, ISIS, Hezbollah, the PLO (Fatah, PA or whatever they want to rename themselves to run from their terrorist labels.)    They are the useful idiots for a great evil bent on sending humanity, culture, freedom and civilization back to the stone ages.

Back when the world was experiencing what seemed to be unprecedented prosperity, or the illusion of it, I wrote that as U.S. empire waned this cycle, every pathological predator on earth would make a grab for power in the vacuum it created.  And the world could turn into a madhouse.  We are now here.   And there is every reason to believe it is going to get much, much worse.  Until humanity is willing to stand witness to evil, it will continue to flourish.  Karma demands it to be so.

Liberal Fanatic Lunacy Exposed: Pooping, Belching, Farting, Methane-Producing Cows Restore Ecosystem Loss. Release Your Guilt-Ridden Shame And Eat A Burger!

"The 20th Century was a horrible litany of absurd experiments and atrocities committed by intellectuals, or by elite groupings that claimed a higher knowledge. Simple folk usually have enough common sense to avoid the worst errors. Sometimes they need to take very stern action to stop intellectuals leading us to ruin." - Ambrose Evans-Pritchard

The twentieth century will go down in history as an abomination created by state liberalism at the expense of human liberty.  True liberalism is the recognition of the primacy of the individual and of community.  It results in the empowerment of humanity.  That includes a guaranteed living wage, guaranteed access to affordable healthcare, etc. 

This whole meat-eaters-are-the-scourge-of-humanity meme created out of thin air (state liberal fanaticism, hatred of humanity and junk science) is really part of a consistent state liberalism meme of the twentieth century.  That is, population control.   There is nothing wrong with humanity nor are there too many of us.  People throughout all of history have proven an ability to determine their own fate without some faux intellectual telling us we are useless eaters destroying the planet.   Who is actually destroying the planet are state liberals, faux intellectuals and the system of state violence, corporate capitalism, that enriches state actors by stealing from the untermensch or working class. 

Untermensch, a common meme within the liberal fanatic mob throughout the twentieth century, (although it is certainly hidden through more sinister, propagandized efforts meant to dumb-down and control humanity like telling us eating meat is going to destroy the planet.)  was also the same justification ploy used by Hitler to rid Germany of whom the state actors thought were undesirables.  And before him, as noted on here in the past, the Anglo-American aristocracy used forced sterilization, unlawful experiments on the poor and other atrocities in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century to rid the world of what they described as undesirables.   Mind you, this is all driven by a pathological self-hatred.   You cannot wish to see your fellow man become all that he is capable of becoming if you are not capable of loving yourself enough to want to become the vibrant you that you were meant to become.  Self-hatred is driven by a disconnection to our divinity.  So, it should be no surprise that these same liberals mock any reference to a Divine life force.

Don’t jump on your high horse as a Republican neoliberal.  Having our lives ruled by a select few corporate bureaucrats and turned into the idiocracy of  mindless corporate wage slavess and consumers, and thus see every untainted, unpolluted ecosystem as the next Wal-mart parking lot, are possibly even more heinous. Humanity can cohabitate with nature. But first we need to rid ourselves of corporate and state liberalism that exists only through telling everyone else how to lead their lives.  And, literally create junk science out of thin air in order to do it.  That includes the hilarious meme that cows belching and farting methane are such a massive problem in the mythical meme of global warming that we need to rid ourselves of meat eaters.   Read on and learn the truth from a reformed liberal idiot himself whose experiments show that more cows may be the answer we need.  And, thus, more meat eaters to consume them.

But beforehand, let me say once again there is no meaningful scientifically-proven evidence the earth’s climate acts as junk AGW climate models have predicted (and those predictions have completely failed thus invalidated the horrendous theories).  It is even more preposterous that eating meat is somehow responsible for climate change.  Although the Huffington Post recently labeled meat eaters as the “Carbon Scourge”.  Of course, these are the same brilliant reporters who thought ear plugs were rubber bullets in the recent Ferguson crisis. 

Eating meat is one of the liberal fanatic’s biggest concerns because cattle and other ruminants apparently like to belch a lot and release one of the most dreaded liberal fears; methane.  This post links to an excellent video below presenting evidence that refudiates the ignorance of the liberal idiot (and their useful idiots who believe their nonsensical, unscientific baloney) and actually presents possible simple solutions to help restore the health of our planet.  That is, raise more cattle and eat more meat.  And, mind you, this evidence is presented by a scientist who once supported  idiotic, liberal fanatic memes.  Just how insane can the liberal fanatic be?  How about shooting tens of thousands of elephants to supposedly save African ecosystems.  Then admit you were wrong.  Maybe instead he should have considered turning that gun on himself.   At least he admits his own wrongly held beliefs in the video link below.

We are living through a time when scientific principles have been obliterated.   In many regards we are in the midst of a scientific dark ages created by state liberalism.  No one is more guilty of this than the AGW climate fanatics that have butchered those principles. (As an aside, I noted on here in a prior link how scientific paper retraction has literally gone exponential due to fraud and faulty science.   And more recently SAGE retracted sixty articles.)  

The systemic fraud of science has everything to do with the economic crisis we are experiencing.  Researchers are under constant pressure to continually raise government and corporate grant money or lose their high salaries, jobs and possibly careers.  And science has been hijacked by liberalism and destroyed to serve their many memes.  This has led to agenda-driven faux science with predetermined outcomes.   The AGW pseudoscience community wanted to find the earth was warming so they built a meme and junk models in support of their beliefs.  Even if that was subconscious in many situations.  It’s simply another example of how money, corporations and state liberalism have destroyed truth and, in this case, science.

 Some weeks ago Richard Branson joined the chorus of liberal clowns succumbing to this anti-science meme.  I suppose if we killed all of the cattle and all of humanity, then the planet would be fine.  Or so that is the thinking.  But then listening to some of these fanatics, they hate themselves so much that indeed they would wish this on all of us if they could.   And that has become a main driver of state liberalism.   The real issue driving widespread acceptance of fanatic lunacy has been a common theme on here.  That is, this environment of social and economic collapse, cover is given to  the lunatic fringe.  Fanatics of all types, be they on the political left or right, find many of their lunatic views are accepted into the mainstream as the ego seeks certainty in a world of fear created by extreme uncertainty and unknowingness.  Or, maybe more importantly, fanatics find cover in a world where the mob seeks vigilante vengeance for those it blames for their self-victimizing ills.   That is, rather than taking responsibility for those truly is at fault, which is cumulatively each of us.   Dare I say these mob social movements such as AGW, anti-Semitism and the meat-eater scourge are tyrannical and reminiscent of the Reign of Terror during the French Revolution.  A time when kangaroo courts were set up to disguise mob lynchings of anyone who dissented from the tyranny of the mob.  The mob ruled then as it does today.   Our kangaroo court is the public lynching of political correctness and rabid attacks on anyone who doesn’t conform with the views of the fanatic.  The dynamics allowing it are different but the outcomes are the same.   Today politics is used by the mob and by fanatics to inflict controlling beliefs on the rest of humanity.   Freedom?  Forget freedom.  We are using divine knowledge to stop humanity from killing themselves by eating meat.  Or so the fanatic True Believer thinks.

Mind you, there are fanatics on both sides of the false liberal and conservative political meme in this country and around the world.  One fanatic must exist to provide a counterweight to the other.   Without the conservative fanatic, the liberal fanatic cannot exist nor vice versa.  Republicans create Democrats and Democrats create Republicans in a polarized world where every aspect of our lives in some way is substantially controlled by the political class. 

Fanatics hide behind a faux greater knowledge.  They are certain of their beliefs and thus tend to be very narrow and closed-minded.  Certainty is driven by the ego’s intent of control.   The greater the ego’s fear, the greater the need for control.  Given we live in survival mode under the tyranny of pathological state violence, fear is abundant everywhere.  The truth is reality often tends to be in shades of gray but that doesn’t stop the fanatic from defending their ill-thought-out yet completely certain beliefs.

Whether that is the mythical free market on the right or the supposed brilliance of Harvard-educated liberals on the left.   Both seek to coerce others into their faux belief systems through the application of state violence.   Living wages?  Let the free market decide.  Who should get health care?  Let the free market decide.  Ban meat eating because cows release methane gas, a much more sinister greenhouse gas than even CO2.  How about we ban termites as well given there is more of a mass than termites than humans and they release massive amounts of methane?  What’s the difference between the liberal and conservative fanatic?  The same lunacy just different tyranny due to different beliefs.

One of the greatest fanatical elements in our society is the supposedly educated Big L Democratic Party liberal.  Or, state liberalism.   It’s everywhere.  And the level of junk science and looking-down-your-nose faux intellectual superiority is nauseating and endless.  But what is truly harmful is when fanatics use political methods of enforcing their world view and will upon humanity and society.  So, “winning” elections really is simply another method through which fanatics enforce their will upon the losers.  How the hell is that freedom or empowerment or self-determinism or self-rule?   There are a lot of people of all walks of life who are simply sick of being told what to do by literal idiots masquerading as experts be they neoliberal free market advocates or the liberal intelligentsia. 

Here’s one for the faux intelligentsia on the left who tell us that all of the ruminants, including cows, are causing global warming with their endless belching and excretion  of methane gas.  Supposedly more methane gas than all cars on earth.   Woe is me.   If this environment provides anything worthwhile, it’s an endless supply of amusement through ignorance.

From the Huffington Post, the source of all things brilliantly liberal anti-science - Meat Eaters: Carbon Scourge  (To label the basic building block of life, carbon, as a scourge without any proven science, could only reside in the mind of the faux intelligentsia.  It’s reminiscent of the cholesterol hyperventilating.  That is, a substance absolutely needed by the human body, is somehow killing us.)

How nature acts to moderate climate change by eating meat. (One of the best videos out there courtesy of a reformed liberal idiot.  I can’t even imagine an avowed hater of those who eat meat being able to watch this.  Let alone stuff a hamburger down their pie hole.  Their certainty and believes are so rigidly held that they will almost certainly deny the reality of what they are watching.) 

No one is saying that any life should be taken unless it is needed.  And no one is stating that the brutal and inhumane factory farming techniques are anything other than crimes against nature.  That includes the strip mining of land by mass, monoculture farming techniques to feed cattle what they would never eat unless corporations forced them to rather than allowing them to graze as nature intended.  But, there is a cycle of life that sustains life.  Viewing any of that process, including eating meat, as willful and malicious intent to do harm aka murder is driven by perceptions of ego rather than the greater truth of our existence.  

All life sustains life through the process of birth, life, death and renewal.   Lather, rinse, repeat.  

If you don’t want to eat meat, then don’t eat it.  And deal with the consequences, whatever they may be.   I would suppose if humans were all vegans we may eventually die out some generations later.   But now we know from the video above that there are additional consequences that may include destroying the planet as well as your health.  The moral of the story is don’t try to “intellectualize” a position that has absolutely no scientific validity and then use the force of the state to impose those junk scientific beliefs on the rest of humanity as has been the use of state violence for the last one hundred years by corporate apologists and contrived liberal do-gooders.   

These videos show the faux intellectual superiority exposed for what it is.  Fanaticism coupled with junk science.  Nature knows best on how to heal itself.  It has proven this over billions of years.  Ruminants eating, pooping, belching and excreting mass amounts of methane has been happening on this planet for a lot longer than those with a faux intellectual superiority who believe that eating meat or cow methane are bad for the climate.  And, the complete lack of science behind their beliefs.   And unlike the road to hell that is paved with liberal fanatics and their good intentions, ruminants actually help the environment through natural harmony developed over hundreds of millions of years.  But, without culling the herd, or killing ruminants, (Which then someone has to eat.  It might as well be us rather than bugs or wolves, given how nutritious it is.)  they will over-run the land and ultimately contribute to ecosystem collapse. 

A good method of celebrating the success of nature and what certainly must be the beneficial release of methane by cows is to head out and find a local store or butcher or farmer that supports natural, humane methods of raising happy, grass-fed cattle and have yourself a big juicy burger today.   Given how important its omega-3s, amino acids, B-vitamins and nutrition are to your brain, it will definitely help make you happy.  Be sure to give thanks for nature’s brilliance, abundance and bounty.  And thanks that nature has given you life by sharing that abundance that you respectfully treat with compassion and decency.  And then give thanks to the fact that some modicum of republicanism and democracy exists in this country so that fanatics have not completely taken over.  They are close but likely as close as they are ever going to get.

Update: Watching The Global Socioeconomic Control System Fail In Real Time

“You only have power over people so long as you don't take everything away from them. But when you've robbed a man of everything, he's no longer in your power - he's free again.”  -- Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

Let’s take a look at some of the developments over the last week or so that fit nicely with the long time themes and projections on here. 

Overreach and corruption are what brings down not only empire but any illegitimate authority.  It’s why corporations are likely to fail on a grand scale.   Just about every major corporation in this country only exists through some form of graft.   Permanent corporations, as they have always been organized, are an anathema to democracy.    They exist only to seek rent for those who control them.  That includes the state itself.   A new study simply validates what has been discussed on here ad nauseam.  That is, the concept of money and corporate capitalist wage slavery as the primary methods of disseminating social wealth are experiencing some degree of systemic failure.    Whether that failure is terminal remains to be seen.  But without the artificial control system of money, the capitalist class and the state would already have experienced terminal failure.  The system continues to unwind with one out of three American consumers in default on some form of financial usury and corporate graft.   So much for the mythical economic recovery.  In many regards money and the marketing propaganda of corporations are the final battlefields being waged by this system to save itself.  That battle is clearly being lost.    As Solzhenitsyn noted, with state actors, including corporations, having so successfully stolen literally everything from the majority of humanity, their power now continues to wane. 

This past week Obama hosted a Monster’s Ball of African dictators and thugs at the Whitehouse.   Truly some of the most lecherous excuses for human beings on this planet.   Goons who have stolen everything from the people they dominate and exploit.   That often includes stealing their lives.  Obama’s hosting of these predators is clearly driven by the need for capitalism to find new, large markets to loot or to ultimately face its own extinction.   This has been discussed often on here including that the United States is trying to pivot its economic focus to Africa, the last place on earth to provide large populations that have yet to be exploited and ripped off by wholesale corporate power.  Obviously, European colonialism has been exploiting Africa for centuries but their form of subjugation was based on outright class-based human slavery.  This new form of corporate-driven capitalist empire is much more sinister and covert.  And, each of these monsters has much to gain by selling the slavery of Africans to the corporate state.     

Now we plainly see why the American empire has troops on the ground in three dozen African nations.    They are prepping the invasion of American corporations.  It’s no coincidence that at the same time the corporate capitalist predators have publicly become very bullish on Africa.   This is the first time in history we have heard these words uttered so consistently.   Obama’s hosting of the African summit and corporate bullishness on Africa are clearly linked.   The corruption of government by private, for-profit power is now so blatantly obvious that any half wit can easily deduce that fascism drives the policies of this nation and most every other industrialized nation around the world.   That Obama is hosting some of the worst thugs on earth at the Whitehouse, and thus unofficially endorsing murder, rape, genocide and brutality of every form imaginable, certainly has an intent far beyond that of any mainstream political blather.   He is doing so with the support of both Democrats and Republicans and the masters of the only political party, the corporate state party, that truly exists in this nation.  That is, corporate capitalist power.    And, just like in Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union, it is the professional class that gleefully does the bidding of state evil.

The U.S. corporate state is clearly in a state of war with China economically.  And, the battlefield is now Africa and to a lesser extent, South America and the Middle East where Chinese influence is rising.  U.S. and European corporate power now wages a battle for profits against both China and Russia on the global stage.   The intent of all of these state actors is to grab the rights to future economic exploitation and subsequent profits.   As noted back after the 2008 collapse, when the G20 had meeting after meeting showing unity in their resolve to fight the global economic collapse, the reality would soon unfold that state predators would soon turn on each other.  And, indeed they have.  Battle lines are being drawn.  Each state seeks to perpetuate violence in their own name to maintain and expand the power structure that currently exists.   We can certainly expect that both Europe and the U.S. will continue to work closely to maintain their balance of power in the world.   Because, in a world driven so substantially by primitive tribalism, as capitalism so perpetuates, class-based European and American Caucasian capitalist power will do anything to continue to dominate the world.  Not only are the Chinese not part of this club, they will never be invited to join because they aren’t part of the same tribe. 

This past week 60 Minutes ran a story on China’s real estate bubble.  It is a horrifying story.   But, nothing new on here.  As written on here in probably more than one hundred posts on China’s coming collapse, China is the biggest bubble the world has ever seen.   It’s interesting to hear 60 Minutes essentially use those same words in its description of the real estate crisis in China.   It is far, far worse than the 60 Minutes story.  Because real estate is not the crisis.  Real estate is a manifestation of the capital bubble they are experiencing.  Without rehashing  countless posts on here, let me just repeat a couple of major themes discussed over the years regarding China.  One, as noted on here half a dozen years ago when every single person who read such a comment would have laughed me out of the room, the yuan is worthless and China just doesn’t realize it yet.   Are you starting to appreciate this greater truth?  You should after watching that 60 Minutes story.  And, two, who the hell is going to accept yuan as a form of trade settlement when their massive crisis hits critical mass?   Three, China is either headed for mass civil unrest and revolution that will sack communism or war with the west in order to deflect from the systemic failure and incompetence of communist central planners.   Interestingly, China’s top real estate developer now echoes my words of many years ago.  That is, if the bubble pops, it will be a disaster.   And, four, as noted on here many years ago, China is making their future crisis worse by attempting to “modernize” their centrally-planned socioeconomic system.  Pushing peasants and rural populations off of the land, where they are reasonably self-determined, and into cities where they are completely reliant on the mass incompetence of the state for their  fate.   A state that is a miserable failure but whose bubblicious policies heretofore have hidden that mass incompetence.   The communists in China are creating a greater disaster by forcing people to become reliant on a system that is in terminal failure.   So, the communists are creating even greater future unrest that may lead to their own demise. 

The dollar is not under any remote threat at all from China.   For those who believe the dollar is going to collapse, might they be able to explain how that is going to happen against a yuan currency that is under so much stress?  And, the Chinese party is just starting.   As noted on here many times over the years, China will one day be begging for dollars.   Those who own dollars will extract a punishing price in return.  We can expect them to demand substantially more yuan than the current, artificially contrived exchange rate reflects.  And, that will allow dollar interests to pick up the pieces in China on the cheap.   That is, if the U.S. doesn’t experience its own revolution first by sacking both political parties.  Most people have no idea how the world really works.  And their nonsensical predictions are going to be massively wrong.

Are you starting to appreciate that the Chinese miracle was nothing more than a media pump created by American and European capitalists and state actors?  Possibly even done so with a malicious intent only understood by a very small group of deep state actors seeking to drive this meme into the mainstream?  How much of your reality is based on illusions created by others?  Illusions you adopt into your own belief systems out of ignorance?  Global warming?  Peak oil?  Your own freedom under corporate capitalism?

People who believe we are on the edge of a new economic bull market just don’t get it.  I made an obscure comment in a lengthy post many years ago that I want to repeat.  We can’t have a new bull market because the companies and technologies needed to create one don’t yet exist.   And, under this current system, they never will. 

As economies are nothing more than ecosystems created by nature, (since we are a part of nature and anything we manifest is also a natural ecosystem) and following the rules of nature, there exists a maturity model to economies just as there exists one in any ecosystem.   The new technologies, corporations and employment needed for an economic recovery or new bull market don’t exist because massive, bloated state-owned corporations today, along with both political parties, won’t allow them to exist.  (Any company that is a leader in its field today is so large that they are effectively propped up by state policies that rig markets to keep them alive.  Just like in the Soviet Union, communist China and the British empire.  Those corporations exist for one primary reason.  Because large corporations are needed to project the influence and looting of American corporate empire abroad.  Just as was the case with the British empire.)   They purchase competitors, deny competitors any ability to form through the denial of capital, they stifle innovation and on and on.  I wrote this when I first started this blog nine years ago.  But, it was not apparent to most.  It certainly is now.   Americans of all backgrounds are now experiencing a mass awakening unlike any in our history.  They are waking up to the fact that the tyranny of politicians and corporations is destroying our republic.  It is the exact same awakening that happened in 1776 when the king’s courtiers and corporations subjected the colonies to the same form of state tyranny.  Corporate capitalism is not the economic system this nation was founded upon.  But there are plenty of useful idiots who shill for their masters.  Or, as Malcolm X called them, the house slaves.

The old, mature, forest of dead wood that sucks all of the life out of its ecosystem must be burned for new growth to occur.   Forest fires are nature’s answer.  We are almost certainly going to witness a proverbial forest fire in corporate capitalism.   And, this is what the Wall Street Journal is unknowingly reporting in their analysis that we aren’t creating new businesses and existing ones are growing older.  That’s ironic, because the average reader of the Wall Street Journal is someone who is employed in these dead wood, bloated, old forest corporations that are smothering our nation and its creative expression needed to create abundant new growth and human progress.    Frankly, what needs to happen is all of those Wall Street Journal readers need to lose their jobs.   This system needs to fail.   And fail it will.

I don’t say that maliciously.  I say that with the same level of abstraction and lack of ego that I would say as nature finishes off an old, dead wood forest with lightning strikes and resultant forest fire.  And, as part of that, all of the legalese and red tape built up in this system needs to come down with the massive corporate and special interest power that is behind most of the legislation passed in this nation.   No one needs to lose their homes or suffer death or starvation or whatnot as part of this process.  But the system needs to be reset.    Interestingly, this actually used to happen in ancient times.  Every seven time seven years or forty nine years all property would be reapportioned equally, all debts forgiven and the system would start over.   Can you imagine if all property (wealth) in this nation was reapportioned equally amongst its citizens?  And corporations were no longer able to actually own any property by stripping them of corporate personhood?   This is effectively what needs to happen or the forces of the universe will do it for us.

Regardless, life, death and renewal must be part of any social existence.  Economics is a social existence.  And, if we won’t do it of our own intent, then the laws of the universe will certainly do it for us.

But, in this nation, and in societies controlled by modern, Big L political party liberalism, not to be confused with democratic or small L liberalism, we aren’t allowed to experience failure.  (Small L liberalism recognizes the primacy of the rights of man.  Big L liberalism is based on some bureaucrat having some higher knowledge of how we should each lead our lives.  And, the execution of bloated state bureaucracies meant to inflict that violent point of view.)   Or, frankly, anything that forces us to take responsibility for our emotions is verboten.  Johnny is not allowed to do anything in school that would threaten the feelings of other children.  Even if he is pure in his intents of letting his true self shine.  Political correctness ensures no one has their feelings hurt at the expense of leading a dumbed-down existence.  Big corporations that are systemically-incompetent are bailed out because failure is something we fear more than dealing with the brutality they create.   Big L liberalism has created a world of endless outcomes where we lead a meaningless life of nothingness driven by fear and its intent of control.   Of course, capitalism operates on this very principle. 

So, instead we lead dumbed-down lives in fear of our own shadows.  We are no longer the bold nation of ideas and possibilities.  We have been destroyed by liberalism and its small, meaningless existence that is afraid of its feelings, afraid of risk and afraid of failure.   And our fear-driven policies create the same  level of meaningless and nothingness of existence that choked the Soviet Union into collapse.  An existence where a class of self-appointed liberal idiots dictates to the rest of us what is acceptable in our lives.  And through the bully pulpit of marginalizing any dissenting view, accosts, abuses, humiliates and ultimately attempts to literally destroy anyone of dissenting views.   The conformity of the Borg isn’t a science fiction movie.  It is the failed liberalism policies of the last one hundred years.    Liberals legislate this acceptability of their fear-based smallness, meaninglessness and nothingness into law to mercilessly punish and make ignorant the entirety of our existence.  The outcome is a horrifying dumbed-down dystopia all driven by a fear of taking responsibility for our emotions and, thus, becoming the vibrant, shining light we were all meant to become.   Instead, we live in an emotionless existence void of fear and failure.  And, that is exactly the way they wish it.  For without fear and failure, they never have to take responsibility for their emotions. 

Big L liberals today think small, act small and wish to be small.  That is because they don't want to take responsibility for their emotions.  So, in attempting to ameliorate the injustices in society and of the human condition, they victimize those they wish to "save" or help by projecting their affliction onto those they wish to help.   The list of endless “self-described” victims in our nation is overwhelming.   Everyone deserves special treatment or a handout for one reason or another.   And, conservatives (neoliberals and capitalists) provide the perfect host parasite to exploit fearful liberals unwilling to take responsibility for their emotions.  

We live in a society of perfect dysfunction where both Republicans and Democrats feed off of each other’s co-dependency.  Liberalism as we know it is going to collapse.  And by that I mean both Republican and Democratic liberalism.  We are all suffering under their "solutions" to the human condition that has actually made our suffering and meaninglessness of existence that much greater.  We live in a repressed, subjugated, emotionless, Godless world created by Big L liberalism through the force of state violence.

Watching London’s Real Estate Crack Up In Realtime

There are many people who believe the massive bubbles within the system cannot collapse with so many people “aware” of them.   Sort of like the old idiom ‘a watched pot never boils’.  This position relies exclusively on sentiment as its gauge.   This belief relies on tops being created with mass exuberance and wild speculation.   That certainly is happening within small constructs of society that can still afford to loot and speculate with other people’s money but what happens when sentiment of the mob that has looted society becomes fearful at the very top?   That may be developing in some bubbles including London real estate according to the Telegraph.  That is also what happened in 2008.  At the time, there was substantial panic developing at a major asset market peak.  I had written before that collapse on numerous occasions that sentiment would fail as an indicator.   And I have written incessantly since that with the reflation of assets, those who owned them would find that they are stuck with them.  That the remaining players were in the process of trading all of the counterparties out of markets.  

Who can afford to buy a house for a million bucks or a stock discounting a thousand years of earnings?  Or, more importantly, who can be so ignorant? 

Nothing could represent this more than the value of London real estate.  London is the world’s epicenter of fraud.   In many ways, much more fraudulent that even New York.   Every fraudster and scumbag around the world can find a haven in London as long as they have plenty of money.  And the law that protects wealth and class privilege in England turns a blind eye.    This has contributed substantially to the massive swell of real estate prices in London. 

I pulled the data below from the UK land registry after reading the article linked to above in the Telegraph.  It is of London real estate prices since 1995.  Long time readers will recognize 1995 as a very important date.  In many ways 1995 was the beginning of the end as central bankers tried to stop Japan’s financial implosion and in the process unleashed a storm of money around the globe.   (By the way, house prices are still going up in London as just reported today.) 

Let’s say you bought a London flat in 1995 for 200,000 pounds.  Today, on average, it is worth 1,000,000 pounds.   And we are now at the steepest price appreciation in the last twenty years.   This is driven solely by the massive wall of fraudulent money unleashed upon the world by banking criminals and the political toadies that protect them.

Where will London real estate prices end to the upside?  Who knows.  The trend is your friend and that trend remains up.  But, this is a good place to insert a remember.  Many years ago I wrote that if any nation experienced hyperinflation as a result of this cycle, I thought it would be Britain.  

Britain is to the United States what Merrill Lynch was to Goldman Sachs in 2008.  That is, the wannabe in follow the leader.   A birthright aristocracy that still dreams of its arrogant superiority in past days of looting, exploiting, predatory empire.   England has tried to recreate those past days of empire by becoming the financial world’s global epicenter of fraud.   Merrill Lynch played follow the leader with Goldman Sachs just as Britain does with the U.S.  Remember, I wrote that Merrill was not going to make it under its current business model when John Thane was hired to save the company and spoke positively of saving the firm.   Merrill Lynch was headed to zero without a Federal Reserve-Treasury structured bailout.  Britain may be headed for the same fate.

London home prices from 1995 to the present.  Up, up and away….

Timely Comments About China, The United States And Their Straining Nash Equilibrium

I have remarked on here - mostly quite many years ago - that the United States may have created the China “miracle” (as pumped in the mainstream media) simply to destroy it.  This clearly is another angle to capitalism that nearly no one understands.   There are far too many people who don’t actually understand what is going on and so what is reported in the world is often without any merit.  Or worse, just the opposite of reality.  I’ll be writing more about this very topic in the upcoming series of posts I promised earlier this year.  But for now, I want to stay within the confines of events happening today and why they may matter.

What is common today is not knowledge, discovery or truth but people determining their reality through emotions and beliefs.  There is nothing more confining and erroneous than looking at the world through emotions or the limitations of beliefs.  There are a lot of people out there who are so emotionally-charged by U.S. corruption that they end up with a very skewed view of reality.    Because of their emotions and beliefs, they are unable to see that what exists beyond the United States is most often no more pure or righteous.  We are not our emotions or beliefs, but instead often slaves to the past experiences that created them.  When our emotions and beliefs reflect our reality, we are slaves to our past and create our own victimizing view of reality.  Viewing the world through this lens keeps us from every realizing greater truth.  That is, until time reveals greater truth. 

As it pertains to this moment, let me ask you, when the British Empire lost the U.S. colonies, did it destroy their empire?  Hardly.   There wasn’t even a hiccup.  The sun never set on the British Empire for nearly another 200 years.   China for today’s U.S. empire is little different.  My point is not that the U.S. empire will last another 200 years.  I have already stated years ago that U.S. empire could fall swiftly before  2022.  That would be great news for the U.S. economy.  Which, by the way, were that to successfully happen, it would then have the effect of perpetuating a new, protracted period of U.S. global dominance under this current economic system.   While that may seem unlikely today, we all now can clearly see that those who think with their eyes, beliefs or emotions, or all three, are now experiencing outcomes they never could have imagined just a handful of years ago.   There are big changes coming.  Some of those changes are easy to appreciate.  That includes a debt bubble that is never going to be paid off.  Or the mass welfare system that destroys human dignity.  Or the mass of money corrupting our nation’s public institutions.  But there are also many esoteric factors involved in how these changes might manifest themselves.  Don’t be so sure that you know what they are or that people who are certain of their own emotional, blinded analysis are right either.  I certainly am not. 

Remember, China and Russia are simply state predators who want more of that good ole fashioned U.S. Empire power.  They are not virtuous states by any means.  That anyone sides with them in recognition that the U.S. is rotten and corrupt is based purely on an emotional hatred of the United States.  This is easily identifiable because the mass murder, mass violence and mass repression at the hands of both China and Russia clearly reveals their true identity.  Remember, the state, any state, exists for one reason; violence.   And empire almost always collapses from within due to overreach or mass corruption.   The U.S. suffers from both in spades.  

Additionally, remember that the British Empire was just as brutal and just as far-reaching in the late 1930s as American Empire today.   Frankly, it was more outwardly brutal.   Yet it was an even greater evil that arose to threaten the world at that time.  An evil that owed its very existence, in many ways, in opposition to the existing capitalist order including the British Empire.   Germany and Italy wanted some of that good ole fashioned capitalist British Empire for themselves.  France and Britain created Nazi Germany through the tyranny of their WWI sanctions and reparations that were meant to ensure Germany would never again provide any economic competition  for Europe’s two largest colonial capitalist powers. 

Entering a war cycle and the topic of the possibility of upcoming war was broached on here well before anyone else in the blogosphere or the press touched this topic.  It was not reactionary but instead foretold of.  I think you must clear your mind of prior beliefs and emotions and consider it  highly plausible that any great future evil in the world will not come from the United States just as it did not come from what was the greatest perpetuator of state violence, the British Empire, in the 1930s.     The U.S. certainly continues its attempts at protecting its empire through violence but the attempt to assign everything bad that is happening in the world today to some covert U.S. operation is based on beliefs and emotions rather than any incontrovertible truth that we are privy to.   

People driven by emotions and beliefs clearly take sides when they don’t even understand what is going on.  A prime example is in the Ukraine.   Certainly, we know the U.S. is meddling in the Ukraine.  But there is so much that is not known.  Russia, China and others are also manipulating the global chessboard seeking their own advantage.   One must consider that similar to British Empire domination in the 1930s, that  it will be the rise of power to challenge U.S. empire that may be the next great evil.  That is, if one is to arise at all.   Again, something I foretold of years before any of this chaos started.  That is, as U.S. empire wanes in this cycle, every thug, dictator and power-mad lunatic will feel emboldened and attempt to reach for their own power in the world.   How true has that become?  Obvious possibilities of any coming great evil include China, Russia, Hamas, Hezbollah and ISIS or some combination of factions and states behind these forces.  

Today, it appears outright war may be nearing in the Middle East.    Fanatic Muslim Arabs continue their near single-minded focus on the extermination of all Jews and Israel.   That is, if Shia and Sunni don’t kill each other first.  And, as noted in a prior post on the coming blood moon tetrads, all five tetrads in the twentieth century came within a year of a major financial market peak including the Great Depression.   The very, very infrequent blood moon tetrads passing on Jewish holidays, that we are in the midst of experiencing, are often prophetic for the fate of Jews.  The U.S. and China, possibly with the support of Russia, could both be involved in any Middle East war just as happened in Vietnam between the Soviets and the west.    Russia has an illustrious history of anti-Semitism and is experiencing a growing hatred of anyone different in an ultra-nationalist movement stoked by Putin and the oligarchs he protects.   This chessboard is is already being played with China, Russia and the U.S. all vying to increase relationships to their advantage around the world.

For now I just want to remark of this in order to put up the remainder of this post about some specific events unfolding in the world.  Some people think everything in the world is controlled and contrived with a grand plan.  I’m very dubious of that claim but the reality is no one knows what extend the world is planned.   We know things like globalization were planned by the U.S. and Europe under their construct, the WTO.   But, do we know if there are any intents planned beyond that as it pertains to global trade?  Not really.  Current policies may simply be unplanned responses to existing realities that then create a self-fulfilling prophecy.  Sort of a Whac-A-Mole policy or chaotic insanity.  I don’t give much credit to ignoramus politicians.   But could there be small, secretive pockets within the national security state that do esoterically drive policy with intent.  That includes not only the U.S. but all states.  It’s certainly possible.  But it could also be that events are reasonably random responses in some attempt by politicians to maintain state control based on the prior messes they made.  This is certainly how the vast majority of politics works outside of any potential niche, secretive policy planning.  But, the China-U.S. situation may be different for many legitimate reasons.   This outcome may have been sought.  Some of which I have discussed in the past.   Some of which I will discuss here.  And much more that I will discuss in the future.

As noted in my last China post a couple of weeks ago, the mainstream press has turned negative on China.  This is clearly a reflection of the U.S. corporate state’s changed views since a dumbed-down corporate-controlled press now hires people with the intellectual curiosity of a donkey.  So, political talking points leaked to the press become news rather than any credible investigative reporting meant to find out what is true beyond those force-fed talking points.  We all know this by now. 

There are at least three events unfolding today that may be tied together.  That is, the end of the Fed’s quantitative easing, the illegal immigration crisis in the U.S. and the energy boom in the United States.  Unless you are living under a rock, everyone now knows the U.S. is now the world’s largest oil and natural gas producer.   The fact is the U.S. has been the world’s largest energy producer forever but this has never been reported by leftist fanatics.   We consume the most but we also produce the most.   The reality is the U.S. probably has enough identified carbon-based fuel to power our nation for a thousand years.  I don’t want to get on my soapbox about blathering peak oil right now so let’s leave it here.  

U.S. economic domination has always been foundationally tied to abundant and cheap energy.  The U.S. has thousands of years of energy.  And, presently, much of that is extremely cheap energy.  While the strength of this nation is its cultural diversity, regardless of what many small-minded people believe, immigration has often had a dubious past and what is now a dubious present. 

(Forcing immigrants to give up their heritage and culture is an affront to human dignity.  And, the corporate state uses propaganda to assimilate everyone into a primitive, Godless, heritage-less, cultureless, consumer culture.   In the process we lose our ties to our past and our unique hi-stories that help define us and give us a reason for being.  There is ample evidence that this lack of heritage and cultural identity has played a major role in black America as just one example.  That is why we see a resurgence in tying people to their African roots.  How many people feel a yearning to understand more about their immigrant past and lost culture and would like to reconnect to it?  Nearly everyone I know.)

That dubious past of immigration has been to provide an endless stream of cheap labor to fill factories, sweat shops and dehumanizing jobs like servants for the ultra rich.  What better method of covert violence is there than to force someone just off the boat or crossing the border and not a nickel to their name to do their master’s bidding?  Does one really have another choice in this system?   Come here to the land of economic opportunity and end up becoming a slave to corporate and elite power.

I don’t think it’s any kind of coincidence that Joe Biden recently remarked (as posted on here) that the U.S. needs all of this immigrant labor for the economy to grow.  Joe Biden, like most politicians, hasn’t had an original thought in his life.  That was planted in his head likely by business leaders/lobbyists and he’s simply parroting what he has been told to say. 

Recently, many of all ethnicities in this nation have come out in criticism of Obama for spending untold billions of dollars helping immigrants while they suffer incredibly high unemployment and underemployment.   Where’s their jobs and their economic relief?  Rightly so.  Our president is seemingly willfully incompetent.  I find it hard to believe anyone can be so stupid as face value presents him.  Very few people in this world are literally stupid.  Willfully ignorant?  Yes.  

As an aside, I’m not sure what exactly this hedge fund manager was thinking but it would likely costs less than the money Obama seeks to give to illegal immigrants and deal with the crisis he largely created to protect our electrical grid from an EMP solar shock.   There will be a day when that again happens.  And we have no planning in place even though solutions exist.   A substantial reason behind this is the deregulation of the energy industry, that as noted on here in the past, has been a complete and utter failure.  Of course, maybe he was talking about Russia’s use of an EMP weapon.  Why?  I don’t know.  Behavior in this environment is often unpredictable and batty.  Regardless, there is no money for upgrading our electrical grid to handle that type of emergency.  Only money for illegal and unconstitutional presidential activity and those who benefit from it. 

So, it has obviously been leaked by Obama’s administration that they are putting plans in place to give up to five million illegal immigrants work permits in our nation.    Work permits.  Not just amnesty.  This is driven by the search for more workers as Biden noted.  Mind you, the Chamber of Commerce is squarely behind this plan.  And, so is the Republican Party leadership, if they could bamboozle their working class constituents into passing it.    Which, they clearly can’t.  This when the current unemployment rate is already 24% and the underemployment rate is probably double that.   What are his intents and why?  No one knows but let me tie this together with some past remarks made on here about what may be going on. 

So…..  what would drive these policies of cheap energy, an end to quantitative easing and immigration “reform” which is nothing more than a covert word for more wages slaves for anyone who can make it across the border?  (Remember, Biden noted we needed this immigrants for our economy. And both parties and their corporate masters support it.  Immigration reform has nothing to do with compassion.  How many times has Obama gone to Detroit, where unemployment and underemployment are probably 80%, to talk about the economy?  Or any other impoverished area?  Or why hasn’t he acted unilaterally and unconstitutionally as he said he is going to do with immigration?  He doesn’t give a shit about exploited people’s well-being.  He has shown that repeatedly.  There is some  willful intent at work.)

The possibility of this being part of a larger plan, if one actually exists, is that the U.S. is ramping up for economic war or worse with China.   Something I have noted for a long time is coming.  And over the past few years, the actions of politicians and the military-industrial complex have clearly been in alignment with.    This is part of the cycle of war that exists as an inherent component to corporate capitalism. 

One must appreciate that we ebb and flow between these long cycles of financial capitalist and industrial capitalist exploitation.   We have been in a period of financial exploitation for forty years.  It’s about time for the worm to turn.  That is, if they can actually turn it.  I doubt this is really some grand plan hatched in secrecy but rather an understanding that has now arisen that the capitalist policies of the west have created a new enemy that is China.   Regardless, western leadership most certainly considers China a threat.  Why else does the TPP trade agreement surround and exclude China?  Why else is the U.S. war machine pivoting to Asia?   And, mind you, China is a massively corrupt, evil state that is a threat to humanity.  That they have not overtly acted in such a way for most to see that yet is irrelevant.  Communism is an inherently evil system, just as capitalism and any other form of state violence is.

Some would wonder how immigration ties into this if America truly has an unemployment and underemployment rate of 50% or more.  Well, first of all, the underemployment dynamic is fine with our masters.   They created it and are doing nothing to ameliorate it.  Being underemployed in service or servant economy jobs serves the capitalist class and our aristocracy.  It also provides some low level of social stability.   As for the unemployed, how many Americans are going to leave their government handouts for a slave labor job that pays little, if any, benefit over receiving a check from Uncle Sam?   You have to factor in day care, transportation, the cost of paying for health care and on and on.   It takes much more than a minimum wage, or thereabouts, to provide the financial gains for people to come off of handout doles.  Immigrants, on the other hand, come from a culture of work.  They are not institutionalized to a culture of  handouts.  Immigrants have always bought the propaganda or were forced the propaganda of capitalism’s culture of work and today’s immigrants are no different.  They are one of the most exploited classes of people in our nation.   

I wanted to place this post up at this point so you could watch events unfold with the possibility of understanding what may be driving some of the macro factors unfolding today.   As some point the equilibrium between China and the U.S. is going to break.  It’s going to break because the benefits to keeping the system as it was no longer exist.  What comes next?   That we do not know for certain.  But, if it is left up to the state, we can clearly gain a better appreciation.  It will be what the state does best.  That is, violence on behalf of those who derive their power from the state.  Be that Russia, China, the United States or any other state is irrelevant.
