Plutocratic Globalization Is The Number One Enemy Of We The People

August 20, 2020

It’s called PLUTOCRATIC GLOBALIZATION, and it destroyed the Roman Republic… turning it into the evil oligarchic empire invented by Augustus, which could only get worse, and did.

The wealthiest Romans called themselves the “Optimates”, the best, proceeding to make wars all over, subduing (democratic) Carthage, (free) Numentia (in Spain), and all of Greece, including Rome’s ally, Athens. Compare with the present “Democratic” Party in the USA. Joe Biden, average Joe, invented (he was the head of the Senate Foreign Commission) the argument to invade Iraq, a war crime, and crime against humanity, which killed at least two million Iraqis. Now we have the same plutocratic corporations who give millions to “Black Lives Matter” while employing enslaved Uyghurs in China under Xi, a dictator that Gates and Buffet, pillar of the “Democratic” party, have themselves contributed to install.

Did we see that before? Recently, not just Rome? Yes. The “Democratic” Party helped, financed, and conspired with Adolf Hitler. Who was most important in the “Democratic” Party in most of the Twentieth Century? The Harriman Brothers, sons of the guy who owned US railroads. They developed the Baku oil fields for Stalin. they did everything for Hitler. One of the Harrimans got the highest decoration from Stalin, and the highest from Hitler. Hitler himself had been launched, in all ways but learning German, by Henry Ford.

What to do now? First bring back all essential jobs to the West.

Contrarily to what plutocratic propaganda has claimed, industrial production was coming back to the USA. Say that, and they will tell you, those self-declared “progressives” and “democrats”, that you are a racist. So reality is racist? Manufacturing is the essence of POWER. When plutocracy wants to keep on ruling, it aims first at reducing the POWER of WE THE PEOPLE

Italy and Rome especially, had been forbidden, first, to work, then to own weapons, and finally even to serve in the army… Roman plutocrats were afraid of a coup against themselves. It worked, until there was strictly no army left (September 394 CE, exactly) . What to do? The plutocrats negotiated with the Barbarians, jut like now advocates of Sharia are allowed to sit in the US Congress (and have infected some city halls in France, where they promote the subjugation of women).

So the first thing to do is to bring back the essential jobs to the USA and Europe, from China where the plutocrats have exported them. In the COVID 19 crisis, France, Europe and the US had to organize air bridges from China for swabs, masks, Personal Protection Equipment.

Instead the “Democratic” Party chose a guy elected Senator before he was able to serve… who then served Reagan global plutocratization (all Reagan laws were passed by “Democrats”), and whose son, not a financial guy, got a one billion and a half dollar deal from China (and also diamonds, he had to admit during divorce proceedings). Pelosi is also a war criminal: she knew, she admitted recently, as Ranking Member of the Congress Intelligence Committee, that she knew there was strictly not one weapon of mass destruction in Iraq.

Having filthy, immensely corrupt politicians, is what brought Rome down. Feinstein, who stumbled into the San francisco city hall because of an assassination, has now a personal fortune of more than one billion dollars (yes, 10^9 dollars, billion with a b). How? She headed the Foreign Com. of the Senate when Biden did not. Her husband organized the deals with China.

But all people know is what they read in the media. The New York Times, owned by the same Jewish family, since the nineteenth century, knew about the Holocaust… But stayed silent, because greed is most important. They are doing the same now. Bezos owns whores and prostitute all over, including the Washington Post, telling their outrageous lies… Obamas and Clinton have now immense fortunes… And individuals such as your truly get shut down by the tech monopolies… They told me they had to, because otherwise they won’t be able to sell in some countries…

Human beings are not nice, this is how humanity is kept in check. Civilization has enabled evil to be leveraged, that’s called Pluto-Kratia, Evil-Power.
It worked in the past. It will not now, because the power evil can muster is too great.

The preceding was a comment on the following article from my friend ian Miller (but word press has messed up their site, so i couldn’t “reblog”):

The Recent Economy up to Covid-19

Posted on 

In the previous post I noted that Keynesian economics tended to fail because governments overlooked the second half of the prescription: when the going got strong, it was necessary to “pay back” the debt, or at least reduce the money supply. That results in politicians being party poopers, restraining the good times and what politician wants that with an election coming? The net result was with too much money floating around, we had the rather unexpected result of inflation coupled with stagnation/recession. More money would not solve that. Friedman had the answer, perhaps: stop government priming the economy and correct structural deficiencies. That was not followed either – Friedman had no more success than Keynes in getting politicians to behave. What resulted was the likes of Reagan reducing government expenditure, lowering taxes, and maintaining and expanding the government deficit. Then the US Federal Reserve set the tone by reducing the money supply, even though it knew that would send unemployment soaring. They simply did not care. Anything went in the name of “economic efficiency”. 

What was undefined was “efficiency.” To answer that we have to ask what is the purpose of the economy? To the bankers it seems to be to make nice profits for banks, but surely it is more than the keeping of tidy books. For some, it is to maximize wealth, especially for themselves. For some it is to generate the means of enabling people to live in a pleasant place and live alongside nature. For others it is to enable all people to get the best out of life. Under the new economics of Reagan and others, the emphasis was on the “basics”: get the government out of the economy because they don’t know what they are doing, focus on low and stable inflation, let the rich get richer, following which the wealth would trickle down. Except the evidence is, it didn’t.  Then when it became clear that squeezing the money supply, while it might have helped make the books tidier, was generating unemployment that was too great, so central banks switched to using interest rates as their primary tool. Which gets us to where the bankers are now. Interest rates have got to the point where depositing in banks is only good for security, as long as the bank does not go belly up.

What actually happened was that when the corporations noted that the government did not care about employment it fired its workers, thereby saving money on benefits, etc. and moved manufacturing to low wage countries. Basic manufacturing, like clothes, were exported to places like Indonesia or Bangla Desh, and more difficult manufacturing to China. That undoubtedly increased the wealth of the rich, but it sent the workers into low-paying jobs in the service industries. Meanwhile, there was a somewhat unrecognized crisis in the academic community, and in particular the physics community. Funding had dropped and we had a large number of highly educated unemployed. The physicists, in particular, were good at computer modeling, and they got jobs in banks to create new “financial products”. The banks made huge profits until about 2008. The problem with these “products”. which were sliced and diced debt, were based on the assumption that nothing significant could go wrong, but in the US, for political reasons, a huge number of houses were sold to people who had no hope of repaying the mortgages. Oops. 

We have sort of recovered from that, but the legacy is that thanks to COVID 19 the debt levels of so many countries is extraordinarily high, interest rates are ridiculously low they cannot go lower, so there is no incentive to save. Money goes into assets, which merely inflates the price of the assets. Stock at $100 is worth that if you can sell it for that, but at the end of a period of time, you have to look at the overall returns on investment. In a bubble, everyone makes money until the music stops, then the losses are concentrated on the then holders. COVID has forced the nervous investors to cash out and the stock market fell, but it is coming back because of the quantitative easing. So what happens when the quantitative easing stops and the bonds are cashed out?What is clear is that we cannot look to the past for ways to get out of this. We have to try something new, but what? If you look at our leaders, do any of them have a solution to what happens after quantitative easing? Or do they have their heads in the sand and assume that will be for another electoral cycle?
