It’s the Result of the Globalized World

What exactly is happening in this globalized world? What’s happening in the world that one day somebody constructed in which everybody had access to everybody’s private life via social networks and even some had access to it through special programs that they gave fancy names to like Prism and the President’s Surveillance Program? What’s the result that they have brought about by handing the money to the banksters and then letting the rest of the world wallow in the mud of the cesspit that was once the economy? The people have had enough. That’s the result.

Around the world, governments are seeing ‘go-it-alone’ breaks being made, referendums being held and repressed areas giving the proverbial finger to centralized governments. This is the result of globalization. The world in which we travel at the flick of a click is a place in which we are absent from everywhere but virtually present anywhere and everywhere, and all that from the comfort of the armchair of my own home (made inChina, or India, or Bangladesh…).

Scotland wants to get out of the hell-hole that Westminster has turned into. The Mexicans won’t be trying to jump the wall anymore in years to come. The US will be getting its comeuppance too as people will be showing that they have had enough. Is the revolution starting or is it just around the corner? This is the West’s Spring Revolution.

Scotland goes to the polls on September 18th 2014 and already the gap between the ‘yes’ and the ‘no’ vote is narrowing. Scotland is only 5% in reach of gaining its independence. Despite the fact that Westminster has told them they can’t have the Pound Sterling and despite the fact that the Spanish will veto their entry in the European Union (for fear of losing Catalonia and the Basque Country). Soon, there will only be the central governments in the EU (and Ukraine, after it will have milked the EU poor-stricken cash-hungry dry). In the latest poll by ICM research in Scotland, 39% would vote for independence. That’s an increase of 2% since last month. The ‘No’ vote is down from 49% to 46%. Those who still haven’t made their minds up stands at 15%. Discounting the ‘don’t know’ers’ means that support for is at 45% for independence and those who want to stay in the Union stands at 55%.

Now we learn that Venice has held its own independence referendum without the say-so of the Italian government. You see Europe and America: when you fail to stand up to the annexation of an entire region and an unconstitutional referendum is held, then you have to pay the consequences. If the Russians can do it, and Europe says nothing, then we all have the right to do so. Follow by example. The poll for the Venetians was done on-line and received a ‘yes’ vote of 89% to break-away from the Italian government and become an independent state. Two million people took part in the vote. Long Live the V**enetian Republic**! Growing tensions have occurred since 2007 and despite the fact that Venice lost its Independence when Napoleon annexed it into Italy in 1797, they are looking to get it back.

As Russia expands and builds its Federation back up to Soviet proportions, the rest of the world may just have to deal with a splintering of the West into smaller countries that are more independent and that still continue inter-acting on the global scene.

In today’s world of globalization, we are looking in on ourselves and we have had enough of centralized governments, the corruption that has become nothing more than by-word for elections and the spin-doctoring that has been spun to us for years now. We are slowly but surely coming to the realization that the masses are more powerful than the few that are at the top. They are richer, for sure. But, the people are stronger and fake referendums are at least a message that is being sent to the leaders that believe they have been voted in because we like them. No, they are there either because it was rigged, or because they were the least worst of the bad bunch that strutted around the television studios.

Do people actually vote these days anyhow?

I voted from 1980 up until 2000[advent of ETSV in my precinct*]...funnily enough I don't ever remember voting for a 'globalized world.'

I specifically voted against any and all who voiced support of things like NAFTA.


So yeah I can see how voting worked out...I'm sure *Electronic Touch Screen Voting will improve things considerably.

back in late 1700 there wasn't Italy.


"In 1860–61, general Giuseppe Garibaldi led the drive for unification in Naples and Sicily,[54] allowing the Sardinian government led by the Count of Cavour to declare a united Italian kingdom on 17 March 1861. In 1866, Victor Emmanuel II allied with Prussia during the Austro-Prussian War, waging the Third Italian War of Independence which allowed Italy to annex Venetia. Finally, as France during the disastrous Franco-Prussian War of 1870 abandoned its garrisons in Rome, the Italians rushed to fill the power gap by taking over the Papal States."


so Italy started forming in 1860-1....................

"When it gets down to it — talking trade balances here — once we've brain-drained all our technology into other countries, once things have evened out, they're making cars in Bolivia and microwave ovens in Tadzhikistan and selling them here — once our edge in natural resources has been made irrelevant by giant Hong Kong ships and dirigibles that can ship North Dakota all the way to New Zealand for a nickel — once the Invisible Hand has taken away all those historical inequities and smeared them out into a broad global layer of what a Pakistani brickmaker would consider to be prosperity — y'know what? There's only four things we do better than anyone else:
microcode (software)
high-speed pizza delivery"

Yes, many do. But unfortunately, trapped by MSM propaganda with candidates vetted and sponsored by "wealth primaries" in conjunction with red team / blue team dominance of the ballot, citizens have little choice at the ballot box.

Why not hold our own "unconstitutional referendum" on our continued governance by these corrupt bastards during the next election? They need our consent, by voting for their candidates, to legitimately govern. Simply withdraw your consent to be governed by tendering a blank ballot.

The whole reason for centralized governments in the first place was a lack of communication. There was no reliable way to communicate so people needed to have a centraililzed government. Now we have modern communications and every citizen can vote electronically the same way that they get their money out of an ATM. There is no need for a centralized representitive government. There needs to be an organized military and a few other esential things but that could be handled through state government cooperation.

1) Like-minded people form shadow governments that fit their political philosophy.

2) Start movements to establish the numerous shadow governments as fully functioning governments - all within the same territory a la panarchism.

3) The ability to freely choose amongst governments competing for participants will allow each person to decide how much of what kind of government they would be happy with.

4) The best government, or perhaps no government, will be the most successful.

Perhaps the impetus for this could be an online game based on competing governments.

Or a political social networking site.

EU need to finish all those quislings that are working for the international banksters and not their countries. USA need to close their military bases in EU, just as the URRS did in Eastern Europe more than 20 years ago.
