Economic Consequences Of The “New World Order

A common misconception among less aware segments of the American
populace is that the phrase “New World Order” was concocted by attention
seeking “conspiracy theorists” in dank basement apartments and sinister
mountain shacks across the country. In reality, anti-globalists and
Constitutionalists had nothing to do with the term’s creation (and most
of us have decent digs, too). The truth is that mumblings of a “New
World Order” have been floating around various elitist circles for
decades, and every once in a while, those mumblings are publicized in
the mainstream media. Globalists created the warped ideal; we just
point out that it exists. Lately, we haven’t had to try very hard…

As most readers here are probably already privy to, elitist spokesman
George Soros (who for some reason reminds me of Baron Harkonnen from
the movie ‘Dune’) recently let spill all kinds of NWO gossip in a candid
interview with the Financial Times. If you have not seen it yet, or
you believe only kooks talk about the New World Order, I suggest you
watch the below interview twice for good measure:

What is most interesting about this interview is Soros’ focus on the
fate of the dollar in the NWO. He openly confirms nearly everything I
and many others have been warning about for the past three to four years
in the span of only ten minutes! Why would Soros make such admissions?
Well, I suspect that some elites believe that they should not have to
hide their pet project for a “new order” from us lowly serfs, while
others perhaps have been given the green light to start selling the
masses on the supposed benefits of greater centralization. Soros
literally tries to paint the collapse of America as “necessary”, and the
devolution of the dollar as “healthy”, though I doubt that many people
will be swayed by his charms. It’s hard to trust a guy that leaves a
slime trail…

While Soros may not be the best used car salesman on the lemon lot,
there are plenty of establishment media lackeys and fraudulent pundits
that do have a knack for refining globalist talking points and making
them more palatable to the public. What alternative economic analysts
are now discovering is that there are actually two economies; the one
that the MSM and the government presents, and the one we all actually
live in. The year of 2010 was highly representative of this strange
developing duality. So many malfunctions in terms of employment, debt,
inflation, and bonds (especially municipals), and yet, so much “good
news” pouring out of the networks. This is rather similar to the media
frenzy just before the final market plunge of the Great Depression;
government reports and mainstream news were overwhelmingly positive,
right before the entire system took its last flaming nose dive into the
gutter and stayed there for a decade.

If we are to take anything from the recent Soros interview, it would
be that the globalists are closing in on their target for the
implementation of their new world order, or “new economic order”, or
whatever interchangeable label they happen to be using at the moment.
But what does this mean for the rest of us? When George Bush Sr., Bill
Clinton, Barack Obama, Henry Kissinger, Nicolas Sarkozy, Vladimir Putin,
Gordon Brown, and so many others mention their desire for a “New World
Order”, what exactly are they referring to? In terms of the economy,
how will this elitist philosophy change our lives, and our nation? To
know our destination, we must first examine the path we are currently
on. What have been the results of globalism and centralization so far?
What is the most likely next step? Let’s review where the elites have
led us up until now, and where they have expressly proclaimed they would
like to take us in the future…

Harmonization: The Economic Sucker Punch

“Harmonization” is a very pleasant sounding term for a very insidious
financial practice, and it is also something we will be hearing a lot
about if the NWO design is allowed to continue. In order to understand
what economic harmonization entails, one should research the mechanics
and purpose behind monopolies. Monopolies are formed first and foremost
to remove a very particular free-market factor; competition.
Competition allows for the organic growth of markets by relying on the
general populace to decide which business and financial models work
best. Those models that do not pass the social test are ignored and
allowed to die away, while those that pass are supported by the public
and allowed to carry on. This natural order of commerce is supplanted
when the largest suppliers (businesses or countries) form unions, fix
prices, and squeeze out smaller entrepreneurs before they find an
opportunity to present a superior idea or business model. By removing
competition, monopolies take away the citizen’s ability to choose, or to
even participate in the economy in any capacity beyond the role of
mindless consumer.

Global harmonization works in a similar way, except in this case the
monopoly is not over a specific product or resource, but the resources
of entire continents. Competition among nations is squashed. As in the
European Union, more successful countries are forced through unilateral
trade agreements to transfer their wealth to faltering nations. Not
only this, but the economic policies which once made them more
competitive are scrapped and replaced with policies that deliberately
stunt national growth. Decisions on what kind of commerce works best
are no longer made by the citizenry, and are instead centralized into
the hands of a select few. Any state that resists or strives for
sovereignty is branded irresponsible, or even dangerous; a threat to the
so called “balance”.

While globalists like Soros maintain that there are long term
benefits to harmonization, including a better standard of living for
everyone, in effect, harmonization only seems to make all countries
equally poor.

IMF and World Bank lackeys love to bring up the plight of Africa when
peddling harmonization and certainly African countries would benefit
temporarily by siphoning capital from richer nations, but ultimately, it
is the IMF, World Bank, and the UN that ravaged Africa in the first
place with their loan sharking, resource theft, and attempts to
interfere with African industrialization in the name of unsupported
global warming arguments. (Hey, as soon as NASA or the Climate Research
Unit in East Anglia makes the source data for their experiments
available to the public instead of copping out and claiming national
security privileges, I’m perfectly willing to give them a fair shake.)
In the FT interview, Soros boasts about IMF allocations of SDR’s to
needy African countries, as if they do it out of the kindness of their
hearts. Anyone who has studied the history of the IMF knows that they
do not do charity.

In the end, dirt poor nations might progress, but never enough to
actually prosper, and all at the cost of finding themselves beholden to
the IMF. This is the essence of the New World Order. This is the dark
side that elitists never openly delve into; total centralization, total
poverty, total control, no other options…

Middle-Class Beheaded

In a centralized global economy, financially secure classes of common
people become a problem. The less the masses have to worry about
everyday survival, the more time they have to question the system’s
validity, or its leadership. Therefore, the globalist hierarchy
benefits by removing such subsections of the population like the
middle-class altogether. This process has already commenced in the
midst of the engineered credit crisis, as well as the continued
devaluation of the dollar that Soros speaks of so fondly.

Private wages fell to historic lows at the beginning of 2010:

Prices on essential goods and energy are now inflating, despite falling demand:

The U.S. housing market lost $1.05 trillion in value in 2009, $1.75
trillion 2010, and is expected to lose $9 trillion before it bottoms:

Real unemployment remains at a relentless 20%, while welfare benefits
have been extended up to 99 weeks. Such a large portion of Americans
have remained jobless for so long, that the Bureau of Labor Statistics
has now increased the upper limit of how long someone can be listed as
jobless from two years, to five years:

As forced globalization continues, “lucky” countries will see a
complete disintegration of private home ownership, two working parents
in every family, wage reductions to counter low demand, and price spikes
in food and energy. In places like China with a long history of wage
slavery, this is actually a step up! So it all evens out according to
George Soros. Unfortunately, the U.S. is more likely to see
hyperinflation, rather than a mere reduction in our standard of living.
Currency destruction would decimate the middle-class in America. Soros
hints at this probable future, but then glosses over it as a “painful
but needed” change.

One question that no interviewer seems to put to these parasites is,
who really “needs” the New World Order? Who benefits from its
proliferation? Certainly not the middle-class, and certainly not the
poor. So, who’s left to reap the spoils? Ask Soros. He knows…

Dollar On The Highway To Hell

Not to harp about the past, but in 2007/2008, stating that China was
going to drop the dollar and dump Treasuries while converting to a
consumer based economy causing the greenback to lose its world reserve
status while the IMF introduced SDR’s as the new global currency did not
exactly win me any respect in financial circles. I still get arguments
from devout deflationists and random green-shoots proponents on
occasion. Now, here’s George Soros TELLING YOU, for the most part, what
is going to happen to the dollar, and sounding a lot like Neithercorp.
It’s enough to give me the heebie jeebies.

Soros mentions the pending bilateral trade agreements being used by
China to rout the dollar in Brazil and Argentina, but for some reason
fails to point out Russia’s agreement to abandon the Greenback. He also
fails to mention China’s numerous interest rate hikes or increased bank
allocations which have utterly failed to stem inflation, leaving the
government with only one other option; dump U.S Treasuries, allowing the
Yuan to quickly appreciate giving Chinese consumers greater buying
power to compete with rising prices. All that’s left is for our
Treasury Dept. to finally release that delayed report accusing China of
currency manipulation. Retaliation ensues, and down goes the dollar.

It’s not a question of IF this will happen, but WHEN? How long can
the dollar truly hold out while interest rates remain at near zero, the
private Federal Reserve continues its QE2 madness, and our national debt
continues to grow beyond all imagining? Something has to give, and
that something will be the rest of the world’s patience with the dollar.

Stall tactics are beginning to lose their effect. Rumors yesterday
of a possible Fed rate hike did cause quite a stir, and even hit
commodities, but frankly, I’ll believe that when I see it. A meaningful
rate hike would make the Fed’s quantitative easing programs pretty
difficult to pursue and knock the wind out of the Dow, considering the
only thing propping up the whole farce is the constant flow of cheap
fiat. When the central bankers turn to interest rate gossip to keep
investors smitten with the dollar, it might be time to question whether
or not foreign banks may be preparing for a policy change concerning
U.S. Treasuries soon. This is, of course, all by design.

The bottom line is that the dollar has no place in the NWO. Soros
admits it. Most other globalists have openly demanded it. I think in
this case, they aren’t just feeding us propaganda.

Global Currency, Global Government, No More Fairytales

With all the talk in the MSM of global currency lately, I still have
yet to see a viable argument for its usefulness. Just as with
globalism, no real debate is pursued on global currency, only the
presumption that such a step is “inevitable”. Sorry, but globalism is
not inevitable, and neither is the rise of Special Drawing Rights
(SDR’s). These are economic tools and methods which are enacted by a
relatively small group of men. They are not universal laws of physics
handed down by the gods.

A global currency changes nothing in terms of the problems already
associated with our current collapse. It definitely doesn’t make
anything better. While the IMF does claim to have ample gold reserves
to back the SDR, almost every new paper currency starts out backed by
PM’s or some other resource. The problem is that every currency under
the control of central bankers and not the people ends up losing all
tangible backing and becomes yet another fiat prison. The only purpose
behind a global currency would be to streamline the centralization
process; to perpetuate the psychology of globalism in the masses, making
the construction of global government easier to introduce.

Would global government be as wondrous and as Utopian as it is always
presented? Will we finally get our Star Trek uniforms and flying cars?
Not a chance. Global governance will not be Utopia; not under men
like Soros, and certainly not under the IMF. The promise of paradise
has always been used to make people do stupid and horrible things, from
the Assasseens of Iran spoken of by Marco Polo, to the Russian
communist disaster of Lenin and Stalin, and beyond. Blind collectivism
and feudalism has never led to peace, prosperity, wisdom, or spaceships
propelled by dilithium crystals. What it HAS led to, consistently, is
death, destruction, mayhem, and sometimes the loss of entire chapters of
human knowledge. It leads not to enlightenment, but to the dark ages.

Once a system like this is instituted, its hold over younger
generations is vicious. We have all grown up in the midst of the
globalist experiment, and while many of us have broken free mentally, we
still have never experienced life without the constant poison of
elitist politics and prattle. Imagine a colonialist from the American
Revolution visiting our time and witnessing all the freedoms, cultural
and economic, that were stolen away from us before we were ever born.
They would shriek in absolute horror and run for their musket!

There is a certain innocence and a certain joy inherent in true
freedom, not just freedom of the mind as we have so far settled for
today, but freedom of daily life. To live without someone always out to
dominate you or your family; that is something I would like one day to
witness, or at the very least make possible for tomorrow’s Americans.
If the NWO is not confronted and dismantled, who knows how long it will
be before another common man thrives free.

Breaking The Circle, Starting Anew

Stopping the advancement of the New World Order, at least in terms of
economics, does not require a “magic bullet” scheme, a busload of
lawyers, or even an audit of the Federal Reserve (though one would be
nice). What it does require, is an alternative. Do most Americans
participate in the corrupt establishment system because they like it?
No. They participate because they feel there are no other viable
options, and since very few government officials seem to be coming
forward with said options, there is nothing to do but build a better
option for ourselves.

This means average people starting their own alternative economies in
their own communities based on trade, barter, and sound money (precious
metals), in conjunction with fiat until the bottom finally falls out of
the dollar. It means cutting down the weekly trips to Walmart and
buying as many goods as you can from local Liberty Movement based
providers. It means setting up statewide networks of micro-industries,
farm and garden co-ops, and gold and silver distributors, and turning
away from the NWO completely. It means a return to true free markets
owned and operated by the people, without any interference from
corporations or government.

If they want a centralized economy, then we decentralize the economy.
If they want to break up legitimate community, then we support
legitimate community. If they want to break down 10th Amendment rights,
then we support the Constitutional imperative of the states to
determine their own internal matters. If they want us to rely solely on
the dollar, then we convert our dollars to gold and silver, and trade
with each other. Neithercorp is now working on a project with
Oathkeepers which we believe will make these alternatives a reality.

If anything is going to turn for the better, ever, that change is
going to start with regular people. There is no other way around it.
When the colonies of the American Revolution rebelled against the
British Empire, they did so first by dumping the corrupt British
economic system, and setting up their own free markets. They did not
just declare independence; they took concrete actions which removed
their dependency on their enemy. They forced the British to choose;
accept that the colonies had their own system and move on, or attack the
colonies, try to force them to conform, and expose British tyranny for
all the world to see. The British chose the latter, bit off more than
they could chew, and the rest is history. The point is that the
colonists created a win-win scenario. We must do the same.

Some might claim that times have changed and circumstances are
different, but this is irrelevant. The concept still applies, and is
actually in use by the Liberty Movement already. The alternative media
is a perfect example of how offering a better option to the public can
destroy a controlled mainstream system, like that of the MSM. Their
numbers are plummeting, while ours are skyrocketing. They are becoming
obsolete, while we become more necessary. And all we had to do was
offer the truth, and free participation. Imagine that…

As Soros points out in the FT interview, now is the time to act. We
know what the globalists plan to do to our currency and our economy, so
why wait around for the leaky ship to sink when we could be using that
time to build a better boat? Now, we must act. We must set the pace.
We must take matters into our own hands, before someone else makes the
important decisions for us. We must determine our own destinies. There
is precious little left to lose.

I'm rather fond of the "Old World Order" of confusion, wars, chaos, revolutions, coup d'etet, OSS, all the fun stuff.  You want utopia, move to California. 

TBT or not TBT's picture

Is the present day central valley of California utopian?   The third world moved there and is very unemployed, along with a lot of the natives.

malikai's picture

Which natives are you referring to? The Paiute and Yuki tribes, or the iphone and ipad tribes? It seems to me that historically speaking, the natives always get the axe, or in my case, the machete.

This article has very good advice.  What ever a predator parasite advocates: do the opposite.  No SDRs, a free market in money.

No centralization of authority: a free market in security and adjudication services (end the states of this world and regain your freedom). The solution to statism is not one monopoly state, it is the end of statism.




malikai's picture

VE. You are talking to a fellow Libertarian. One with a sometimes disturbing sense of humor/sarcastic nature. :)

The Midwest Third World came here in the '30s and got too lazy to work in the fields. Tom Joad also moved to Orange County- now there is a cultural dystopia.

The business corporation is the acendent organizing force now, superceding government.  Not toally of course. Sometimes partnering and sometimes co opting.  Will it be better than the old order?  Let's hope so. Since 95% of the readers here hate government it would be best to understand the new order, join it, meaning be a good company man and set aside all those childish notions of the primacy of the individual.  Say hello to the new boss.

Voluntary Exchange's picture

If you study the IMF-Sorros method you will realise that your view of corporatism as  the new ascendant must consider the reality that monopolist globalist corporations need some kind of monopoly of force and adjudication  (the state- or the proposed "super-state") so that they can prevent a true free market and the competition and proper market clearing prices for wages and raw materials that would occur under it . They cannot compete in a truly free market. 


And of course the "corporations" are merely the management vehicles used by those who have already bootstrapped almost infinite past theft through fiat-currency so they can efficiently manage their "livestock" (the human wage slave). Look carefully at the entities that control most of the stock of these major corporations. The key to the globalist wet-dream is the globalist currency SDR, enforced by a global monopoly of force capable of destroying anyone who would dare to choose to live by free exchange.  Let's not go there. It isn't all that new, just a different variation on the slavery theme.  The laggards in our species ought to grow out of the practise of lying, stealing and killing to get what they want, and rely on voluntary exchanges in a free market.

Things that go bump's picture

This new world order thing was postulated by science fiction writers I read as a child in the 50s.  However, if the theory of peak oil holds water, and a lot of people who seem to know what they are talking about believe it does, the world is about to become a much bigger and far less manageable place.  I think I read somewhere that the military believes it can make it 20 years.  The rest of us not so much.  We'll really be feeling the pinch in 5.   I don't think even our own federal government (may it shrivel and die) will be able to effect the level of control it now enjoys on this continent.  I don't see how a world government in its infancy can flourish without the cheap energy oil affords.

"The Jewish people as a whole will become its own Messiah. It will attain world dominion by the dissolution of other races, by the abolition of frontiers, the annihilation of monarchy and by the establishment of a world republic in which the Jews will everywhere exercise the privilege of citizenship. In this New World Order the "children of Israel" will furnish all the leaders without encountering opposition. The Governments of the different peoples forming the world republic will fall without difficulty into the hands of the Jews. It will then be possible for the Jewish rulers to abolish private property and everywhere to make use of the resources of the state. Thus will the promise of the Talmud be fulfilled, in which is said that when the Messianic time is come, the Jews will have all the property of the whole world in their hands."

--Baruch Levy, Letter to Karl Marx, 'La Revue de Paris', p.574, June 1, 1928

Gotta admit for such a small population of them globally they sure have managed to oligopolize every important government, financial institution, and entertainment venue in the world.

Someone is looking to make certain that they gather to themselves all the meaningful power in the world.

Mercury's picture

The Flemish and French in Belgium, The world capital of international bureaucratic power-wanking, can barely get along with each other to an extent necessary to share one country (and will probably go their separate ways) but the whole world is going to unite under one government? 

Never going to happen.


Azannoth's picture

Those little disputes will be swept aside by the International powers, It does not matter whether you're German or French, whether you like the Greeks or the Portuguese, under 1 World Government(the UN or EU or North American Union) you won't have a choice, because it is a political union not a union of the people

Mercury's picture

Throughout history ethnic and cultural differences have amounted to a whole lot more than "little disputes" in terms of determining political outcomes...and unless human nature changes tomorrow, they always will.

You'll notice that despite all the bellyaching and celebration about "Diversity" by it's denizens (who are likely pro-international governance as well) the Upper West Side remains mosque-free.

Ace Ventura's picture

I don't think the idea is for the whole world to 'unite' voluntarily. Rather, more like herded into a global cattle-pen under one global politburo.

How one group of proles gets along with another is irrelevant in the eyes of the elite.

NotApplicable's picture

Sad thing is, the sheeple will voluntarily go into the pen (concentration camp) as it will provide the only food and shelter they can obtain without stealing.

All herds are assembled for slaughter. This time will be no different.

Sudden Debt's picture

and even in flanders you have different regions that can't get along. :)


Look at the once great empires. They became great, greater, massive and once they got massive they broke down faster then "WE WANT CHANGE".

Take Russia for example: I don't even know how many countries have split from it since the USSR fell.

England: They once dominated half the world

Spain: Same as England

France, Holland, Germany... they all failed.

And the latest: America. They are now everywhere, but for how long?


People will fight for their identity!


Just look at big international firms! They constantly strugle to create 1 identity and get their staff to follow 1 path. And rarely it works.

Azannoth's picture

You're right, dictatorships only work on a small scale, North Korea, Zimbabwe, Myanmar and the half life of an empire is roughly 100 years at best but still the USSR survived for 3 generations so even though 100 years might not seem much it's a lot for 1 person

Salinger's picture

and that Roman empire myth was just that, imagine dominating a large chunk of the known world for a few hundred years without the benefit of technology

Terminus C's picture

The Romans knew about, traded with, and had diplomatic delegations in India and China. They also "knew" there were lands in southern Africa.

They did not dominate their "known" world, just one part of it.

Oh regional Indian's picture

Mercury, It's already happened.

The UN security council is the most power Military Body in the world. Keeping the "Peace" American style is really in fashion at the UN right now.

Anyways, UN+BIS+Vatican...

very plausible, eh? Military and Politics+Finance+Religion.

Throw in WB and IMF and EU parliament and NAU as enforcers. 

India, looks bright and shiny but is rotten at the core now. Push-over.

In fact, it is being brought out in the open more and more everyday.

When you come across peak oil literature and data, you notice one thing that's irrefutable. We're on a crash course with nature. It's there, it's real. But the push against global warming/climate change always seemed dubious. I can't believe that people like Soros, Rockefeller, Rotschild don't know what's coming. Putting some conspiratorial pieces together, [Georgia Guidestones, Aaron Russo's interview, Rockefeller own confession and so on...] it became clear that the elite wants the economy to crash against the wall. I don't want to overestimate their intelligence but if I wanted a new world order [defined by the Georgia Guidestones] with total control, I would not used my influence to stop the overconsuming, overspending, population overshoot. Let everything crash and pick up the pieces to have a world according to my own views. Contrary to popular belief, Limits to Growth is sound scientifically. And this is why they always win. Neo-feudalism is underway.


YHC-FTSE's picture

Hmm. I think many on the boards believe that neo-feudalism is already here, whilst others contend that feudalism never went away except for very short instances of human history. 


My own experiences tell me that human nature divides us into two neat groups: Those who want to lead and those who want to be led. Extrapolate that in any direction, and you have various forms of social structure that mimic feudalism in every way but in name. Conversely, leaderless anarchy, even ones based on enlightened self interest is the least desirable state because it is so fleeting and prone to the weaknesses in our own nature to climb to the top and tell others what to do. 


So why hasn't mob rule worked? Why has democracy failed so badly to place good people in positions of power where they might do the most good? Why, for fuck sake, does the proven "Wisdom of Crowds" theory fall flat when applied to politics? First, in most democracies, it's not quite mob rule and disenfranchisement is quite common. Second, election systems are wide open to abuse and manipulation - particularly in the USA with its ridiculous campaign funding fiascos. Third, wisdom of crowds does not work when 95% of the people who vote are as far away from wisdom as Paris Hilton is away from virginity. 


That last one is the most important, imo, to move away from feudalism that is inherent human nature. Only the top 5% of the population have higher degrees in education, an even smaller % in subjects that are useful. Plainly, if the normalized distribution of the population places the vast majority in the stupid sector of the bell curve, then what you will always have are stupid results, with opportunities for shadowy special interest groups to defraud, subjugate, and oppress the public. The only way for democracies to work properly is for individuals and the society at large to place education at the forefront - to reverse the current trend and make 95% of the populace smart, well-informed, thinking individuals. We might then finally begin to get a semblance of sanity in the way we live. In other words, make everyone smarter if you want to live in Utopia. :)

margaris's picture

I do not want to lead or to be led.

I shit on this dualistic only system. I show the whole world my finger and live my own life.

It works!

Humanity is in a neverending evolutionary process, as is all nature.

Why divide us in leading people and being-led people?

There is so much more to do then just "eat or be eaten".

YHC-FTSE's picture

+1. It's frustrating to want a better way when all around others chase their basest instincts. 

NotApplicable's picture

As Ernie Hancock says, "There are two types of people, those who want to be left alone, and those who won't leave them alone." (with both the "leaders" and the "followers" in the second group).

Oh regional Indian's picture

YHC, good points all.

In my opinion, the only things that worked well for people, in terms of governance instead of rule were the reigns of the philosopher Kings. Every other system has proven a failure and demonocracy is of course the worst of them all.

Demonocracy imposes the false burden of equality and it's twin, expectation, all too evenly on society while providing vastly different environments for all these "equal" people to grow and be educated etc.

The same damage was done selling this fictitious equality to women as a part of the Feminist movement.

The premise is patently false and has been refined into a new-age political-correctness farce.

We are not equal in the linear ways we have been forced to believe and we are not un-equal at all, but that is something one needs to LIVE not just be-Lieve.


YHC-FTSE's picture

I must confess that I'm unfamiliar with the historical concept of philosopher kings, but it does sound fascinating enough to warrant further reading on my part, thanks.


Oh, and I agree with you wholeheartedly about the false burden of equality, and its twin, expectation. We're clearly not created equal. On ZH, of all places, we're all familiar with the lies that tell us we're all going to be millionaires, models, movie stars, and sports heroes. :). I am, however, fervent in my belief of lifting barriers to self-improvement. I.E. I advocate equal rights (Opportunities) and reject disenfranchisement. No person should ever be barred from improving their lot in life because of the colour of their skin, beliefs, or their lack of a penis. That's not political correctness but something I have always deeply felt within my own sense of ethos & justice. You remind me of a good friend of mine.

ExistentialSkeptic's picture


I would never describe my sex as "lack of a penis" -- a strange male perspective I suppose.

Females have something (a womb) -- they don't "lack" something.

YHC-FTSE's picture

Sorry, I ran out of words to phrase the unfair advantage of historical male domination. Quite right. Women, most women imo, do not lack anything. Especially when I'm her husband. :)

velobabe's picture

never thought of it that way. lack of a penis. hell, i am glad i don't have a penis, come to think of it. what a burden†

Trader7's picture

YHC-FTSE: You present a well written and logical premise. The solution only seems dimly possible. I've noticed a trend in education over the years to merely transfer a skillset for a particular job rather than produce critical thinkers.

Thanks mate. I'm almost being facetious when I wish everyone can just take a smart pill and grow a few more useful connections in their empty heads. :) Defining "smart", is in itself a rather more subjective thing than one likes to admit. :)


I quite agree the solution seems dimly possible, but easily fixed at the point of sale, as it were. It's not unheard of to emphasise the methodology of education rather than the subject of a skillset. As with many things, the way that we do something is sometimes more important than what we do. Probably why I loved the natural sciences so much in my youth.

The difference between traditional feudalism and neo feudalism is the degree of awareness of its victims, largely due to the expansion of our understanding of phsychology and, thus, our ability to manipulate people.  In short, through neo feudalism's evolution, we have created an enslaved society that is either unaware of their precarious situation or have been conditioned incredibly well to ignore it.  It really is a masterpiece...  but, given the human condition's teeter totter between the poles of capitalism and communism, of individual versus collective bargaining, we eventually go the other way (sometimes violently when the asshole on the other end rises us in the air and then bails from his side, in the present case representing galt's gulch so to speak).

That was my point with the deliberate conspiracy theory angle regarding peak resources. We're just screwed... No boogey-man in the closet.

You are lining up figures and what?

The world is organized to support consumption on this side of the world.

What do you care what the other side consumes? Their consumption is only there to make ours bigger.  It's been a while most of the world population no longer compete with us on the resources and are only helpers to our consumption.

The US main legacy to consumption is ways to consume more and faster. 9 billions people on Earth? How many would have adopted the US mindset? That is the crucial question.

Stop behaving  like every one on Earth was modelled on the US gluton type.

Provide quality propaganda. Not worthless drivel that reads like a guy who participated to a game and is not whining because he is on the losing side.

A long bow is been drawn in this article and and the pejorative term "elites" used to undermine alternative equally valid opinions. The author needs to be more neutral in his language if he wishes to mask his bias. I doubt that George Soros has any more power than any other commentator, he is unelected and the best he can do is throw around maybe a billion or two within trillion dollar markets.  So what!
