You Can’t Separate Empire, the State, Financialization and Crony Capitalism: It’s One Indivisible Systemsource


Oftwominds

The great irony is what’s unsustainable melts into thin air no matter how many people want it to keep going.
.
Disagreement is part of discourse, and pursuing differing views of the best way forward is the heart of democracy. Disagreement is abundant, democracy is scarce, despite claims to the contrary.
.
If you think you can surgically extract Empire from the American System, force the State to serve the working/middle classes, end the stripmining of financialization, limit crony capitalism/regulatory capture and get Big Money out of politics–go ahead and do so. I’m not standing in your way–go for it.
.
But while you pursue your good governance, populist, Left/ Right /Socialist/ Libertarian, etc. reforms, please understand the system is indivisible: the Deep State, the Imperial Project (hegemony and power projection), the State, finance in all its tenacled control mechanisms (greetings, debt-serfs and student-loan-serfs), crony capitalism /regulatory capture, money buying political influence, media propaganda passing as “news”, and the evisceration of democracy (something untoward could happen if the serfs could overthrow the Power Elite at the ballot box–can’t let that happen)–it’s all one system.
.
system
.
Should any one organ be ripped from the body, the entire body dies. The entire system defends each subsystem as integral as a matter of survival. As a result, the naive notion that big money can be excised with only positive consequences is false: restoring democracy places the entire system at risk of implosion.
.
No more bread and circuses, no more Social Security checks, no more state employee pensions–it all melts into air if any subsystem stops doing its job.
.
The system is interdependent. Each subsystem needs the others to function. I drew up a chart of the major components (but by no means all) of the system:
.
.
The system is a machine in which each gear serves the whole. So go ahead and try to “reform” the system by extracting whatever gear you don’t approve of: the Deep State components, the Security State organs, the Federal Reserve, cartels/monopolies enforced by the State, the suppression of democracy, crony capitalism, whatever.
.
The machine will resist your “reform” to the death because should you succeed, the machine will implode. Take out the financialization gear and the financial system collapses.
.
So go ahead and reform to your heart’s content. Go ahead and believe the system is reformable, if it makes you feel better. Vote for Bernie or The Donald or whomever. Go ahead and disagree with me. Prove me wrong. Prove the State really, really, really wants to serve the working/middle class rather than the Empire that it is. Pursue your Left/ Right/ Socialist/ Libertarian fantasies of righting the Imperial Project by ripping the gears out of the very center of the machine.
.
It doesn’t work that way. We can’t remove the gears we find distasteful. Either the machine grinds on and we get our share of the swag–bread and circuses, corporate welfare, State jobs and pensions, Medicaid and Medicare, and all the rest of the immense swag of hegemony and the Imperial Project–or the system implodes and all the swag melts into air.
.
The great irony is what’s unsustainable melts into thin air no matter how many people want it to keep going.
.
But go ahead and disagree. It’s your right, by golly. Go ahead and try to “reform” the system and see how far you get.

  1. Reblogged this on UZA – people's courts, forums, & tribunals and commented:
    Thanks for this great post; however, without prejudice, the are ways of re-purposing and re-venueing it all back to the land; quite simple really; in order to re-public a country – represent – review – re-oath – revoke – reinstate – re-venue – re-purpose – retain; we intend to apply this for Southern Africa starting 28th of January, 2016;
    The US of A is a whole other beast which will require the reason Kennedy implemented spec ops… and it’s in disarray right now…
    We pray for your victory too; be blessed

    Enlightening article.

    Here is a sobering quote by Abe Lincoln:

    “I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country. . . . corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed.” – U.S. President Abraham Lincoln, Nov. 21, 1864

    “[Excerpt from “Bones” in the Money Pit

    Our consumer society didn’t just happen; it was planned. Not in 1910, or 1954, but in the year 1832, the year William Huntington Russell and fellow classmate Alphonso Taft founded the Skull and Bones society at Yale University, a branch of the Bavarian Illuminati.

    Members, known as “Bonesmen,” include Rockefeller, Kuhn, Loeb and Morgan all connected to the House of Rothschild’s global financial empire. They are founders of the Federal Reserve, the Bank of England, France, and Germany or, for that matter, any central bank anywhere in the world. In theory, the Federal Reserve Act of 1913, one of the most important domestic acts in the nation’s history, took the power to create money from the people and gave it to the Bonesmen for profit.

    Russ Baker’s new book, “Family of Secrets: the Bush Dynasty, the Powerful Forces That Put It in the White House, And What Their Influence Means for America,” is about George H. W. Bush’s secret intelligence work with the CIA many years before he became the Agency’s director. Bush Sr. had played a powerful but hidden role in determining the direction of the U.S. government.

    It’s common knowledge that the Bushes sit at the intersection of America’s business and intelligence communities, but it not so common knowledge that the Bush Family, Bush Sr., Jr. and grandfather Prescott Bush, were all Bonesmen. Prescott Bush’s initiation in 1918 is said to have included robbing the grave of the Native American warrior, Geronimo. Prescott Bush helped Henry Ford, Averell Harriman and others finance Adolph Hitler.

    Russ Baker suggests the strong possibility that Bush Sr. was connected to the assassination of President Kennedy because “Lyndon Johnson would be more obedient to Texas oil men. [2]

    A more plausible connection is Abraham Lincoln was killed for the Legal Tender Act of 1862 and Kennedy for Executive Order 11110 (the CIA has been exonerated [3]).

    Lincoln’s “greenbacks” would have prevented the Federal Reserve from creating $500 trillion of money out of thin air, money that Warren Buffett and Market watch say financed our global consumer society.

    And, JFK’s “United States notes” backed by silver, which were withdrawn the day he was shot, would have put the Federal Reserve out of business and returned to the Treasury Department the Constitutional power to create and issue a debt-free currency.

    Anyone who spoke against the “Creature from Jekyll Island” (Federal Reserve banking cartel exposed by G. Edward Griffin) was silenced. Presidents Garfield and McKinley, outspoken champions of “sound” money and a central bank, were silenced permanently.

    John Sherman, a Rothschild protégé in a letter sent to New York bankers on June 25, 1863 in support of the then proposed National Banking Act, wrote:

    “The few who understand the system, will either be so interested in its profits, or so dependent on its favors that there will be no opposition from that class, while on the other hand, the great body of people, mentally incapable of comprehending the tremendous advantages…will bear its burden without complaint, and perhaps without suspecting that the system is inimical to their best interests.”

    Directly and indirectly, the Bonesmen orchestrated the Industrial Revolution, the Great Depression, the stagflation of the 1970’s and the dot-com and the housing market bubbles.

    One of the more absurd notions that has found its way into the history books and the writings of economic experts is that somehow these men were made wealthier from the Monopoly money they printed, the same money that enabled consumers to buy houses, second houses, cars, RVs, TVs and DVDs, i.e., the cheap “stuff” we use on a daily basis. Let’s not forget the fact that in 1910 these men already controlled one-sixth of the world’s wealth. And that was real wealth—gold, silver and raw materials—not the fiat currency we call money. Don’t forget the world they owned and controlled in 1910 had a mostly balanced ecology.

    The Skull and Bones society and the Federal Reserve were critical to the growth of our industrial and consumer society, but responsible for much of the financial and environmental damage done to the planet.

    We perceive our Country as a constitutional republic, a government representative of the people and accountable to them; but it now seems that premise is nothing more than an illusionary, sentimental belief. [End of excerpt]

    Consider Another Assassination Conspiracy Theory

    Few would deny JFK was talking about TPTB when he used the words, “monolithic and ruthless conspiracy.”

    What if, after the Bay of Pigs fiasco, his investigation uncovered the “secret” that TPTB are in a metaphysical struggle with Mother-Earth (Gaea) and the environmental damage and pollution was the goal and not the unintended consequences of the Industrial Revolution and our consumer society?

    And it is conceivable when in 1961 JFK spoke about a:

    “System which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations.

    Its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no rumor is printed, and no secret is revealed.”

    He was referring to a system that wasn’t about money. Instead he understood that the resources of the planet were about to be consumed – as in “used up” because he understood the metaphysical struggle.

    Then when he realized we were about to be ”conned,” into shopping for stuff to trash the planet, he signed Executive Order 11110 as a first step to put us on the road to sustainability.

    An earlier part of the speech edited out of the video, “that got John F. Kennedy Killed” and evoked laughter from the audience and could have a double meaning:

    “If only this capitalistic New York newspaper had treated him (Karl Marx) more kindly; if only Marx had remained a foreign correspondent, history might have been different.”

    What would a different history look like?

    The United States, in its first decades, was a land of small farms and nearby towns with few cities of any consequence. The young nation seemed far more interested in becoming a successful experiment in democracy, rather than an economic power. The Bank of the Fed is Closed…Forever

    “Bones in the Money Pit” ends with a reference to the country, the despot and ideology that some claim is the reason he was assassinated, Cuba, Castro and Communism. [4]

    [2] “Give Us the ANWAR and Keep Shopping”-They Found They Can’t Have Both

    [3] Mortal Enemies? Did President Kennedy Plan on Splintering the CIA? By Craig Frizzell and Magen Knuth has put Don and Oliver Stone’s conspiracy to bed.

    “Days after the Bay of Pigs failure, Robert Kennedy began to emerge as the President’s principal advisor. Robert quickly turned to the CIA to devise a plan to overthrow the Castro regime. A little over 6 months after the Bay of Pigs, the President approved Operation Mongoose. According to CIA notes, Robert Kennedy told the planners of the operation, “the Cuban problem today carried top priority in U.S. Govt. No time, money, effort-or manpower to be spared.”

    [4] Cuba’s sustainable agriculture has been lauded by the United Nations as a model for other countries (Global Exchange 2003), that because the goal of TPTB was not to accumulate the money they created out of “thin air,” but, according to a massive United Nations report by the GEO4, put all of humanity at serious risk due to “the dangers of climate change, water scarcity, dwindling fish stocks and the pressures on the land and the extinction of species.”
