Giving Thanks That It Has Not Come To This

Tyler Durden's picture




 

On occasions such as the increasingly binary-outcome world in which we exist today, it is perhaps more important to give thanks not for what has happened, but for what has not, such as this fictional and dramatic potential outcome.

For your Thanksgiving entertainment pleasure:

Impossible when pain is not reconciled.  The best efforts done so far are half assed, half thought of and poorly executed on all levels.  To allow the idea of epiphany to enter a situation; the chaotic calm, tao, whatever people like to call it.  The center must be recognized, acknowledged and maintained.

 

Yet here we are running from starboard to port in some insane attempt to swamp our own life raft.

This is one of the worse videos i've seen. Garbage.. It was almost credible until the part about Iran and the predictions of what their leader would say.. Sounds like Zionist propoganda to me.  So they put a cheap ZH plug in the end to get it on this site.. I'm going to go throw up.. I use to like his videos. I will unsubscribe to him on youtube as well..

To CPL above.

Well said.

As the incomprable Frank Herbert said:

Atrocity is recognized as such by victim and predator alike, by all who learn about it at whatever remove. Atrocity has no excuses, no mitigating argument. Atrocity never balances or rectifies the past. Atrocity merely arms the future for more atrocity. It is self-perpetuating upon itself — a barbarous form of incest. Whoever commits atrocity also commits those future atrocities thus bred.

I'd have to say you're correct. I've been told that Fascism is the state controlled means of production. Communism is the state owned means of production.

Everyone's got a different definiton. Fascism in my opinon is a complex system that combines a government populated by oligarchs, military men, elected officials (corrupt and not), cartels & monopolies, and police forces who collude at certain points to get what they want-- namely money and power. Fascism has less to do with communism than you'd think... the state is controlled by business interests like the Federal Reserve, the MIC, and Monsanto, etc. The government is populated by businessmen who serve other interests. Fascism is what we have presently. Socialism doesn't transfer all of main street's wealth to Wall Street. Fascism does. It seems confusing because they both can be authoritarian.

these don't seem that similar to me, hence bolshie fabian socialism seems odd.  also fabian socialism, unless it's britain about 1960, hasn't been practiced as a nation.

bolshevism, as stalin noted, is also a misnomer: we aren't the majority, we are all.

totalitarian states, whatever they call themselves, are indeed similar.

our budding totalitarians bush and obama certainly resemble each other in policy if not vibe.

Don't you find it frustrating to have a discussion if the terms are not defined and suddenly in the middle of a hot debate you find that my understanding of the definition of socialism is different from yours and we are stupidly arguing about apples and oranges, without even realizing it.

He's a puppet. HE wants statism/socialism, but his advisors (Goldman Sachs guys) want the "free-market" ponzi to continue. I think the decision to bail out the banks during the financial crisis was made easy when they told him the entire economy would collapse and people would be in the streets if banks werent bailed out. In other words, bailouts for finance-capital amounts not to socialism, but to late capitalism-- chock full 'o cartels. I just don't know sometimes... Maybe O knows, maybe he's just a hapless pawn. Either way, the cartel runs the show, not a boardroom full of bearded communists and pamphleteering revolutonaries.

Thu, 11/22/2012 - 20:35 | 3005389 OneTinSoldier66

I hear you. Still, I think the boardroom is communist, or fascist or whatever, whether or not they have any beards. They just try to look good to keep the game of skimming off the productive going.

 

"One exploits the free market by pretending to compete, the other replaces the free market without pretending."

 

Well, by your criteria, I would have to say that Obama is a cartel style corruption pretender. He claimed he was going to cut the deficit in half in his first term, and... I'll bring the troops home as soon as I'm in office and you can take that to the bank. Among many other things that he 'pretended' about in order to gain the seat of President.

I don't know. On one hand, you could imagine the bankers claiming it needed bailing out for the purpose of ponzi-continuance. One the other, the two organizations wouldn't have existed under a true free market. The bankers don't necessarily want free markets... they want safety nets in place-- institutions in place that they can benefit from too.

The bankers are not communist/socialist, but are not free-marketers either. They want preferential treatment.

If Israel were to attack Iran, it wouldn't cause WW3 - in fact I suspect that it wouldn't cause anything except maybe a bit more terrorism. Iran is feared by its neighbours, all of whom would like to see it in ruins if a good strike would achieve that end for a long time, they only lack the strength to do it properly and cannot be seen to side with Israel by their own populations and the Imams.

If the Saudis, Iraqis and kuwaitis could get the Israelis to do the necessary deed, they would of course condemn it public but send Netenyahu a bloody big box of Cuban cigars in private!

What about the Jews ? They got all their land taken away in Europe.

It is doubtful that there has ever been a more miserable human refuse than Jewish survivors after World War II. Starving, emaciated, stateless—they were not welcomed back by countries where they had lived for generations as assimilated and educated citizens. Germany was no place to return to and in Kielce, Poland, 40 Jews who survived the Holocaust were killed in a pogrom one year after the war ended. The European Jew, circa 1945, quickly went from victim to international refugee disaster.
Yet within a very brief time, this epic calamity disappeared, so much so that few people today even remember the period. How did this happen in an era when Palestinian refugees have continued to be stateless for generations?

To begin with, the Jews would all still be living in these DP camps, only now the camps would have become squalid ghettos throughout Europe. The refugees would continue to be fed and clothed by a committee similar to UNRWA—the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (paid for mostly by the United States since 1948). Blessed with one of the world's highest birth rates, they would now number in the many millions. And 66 years later, new generations, fed on a mixture of hate and lies against the Europeans, would now seethe with anger.

Headline in London newspaper(Daily Express) March 1933:

 

"Judea Declares War on Germany"

 

look it up...

 

"For months now the struggle against Germany is waged by each Jewish community, at each conference, in all our syndicates, and by each Jew all over the world. There is reason to believe that our part in this struggle has general value. We will trigger a spiritual and material war of all the world against Germany's ambitions to become once again a great nation, to recover lost territories and colonies. But our Jewish interests demand the complete destruction of Germany. Collectively and individually, the German nation is a threat to us Jews."

- Vladimir Jabotinsky (founder of the Jewish terrorist group, Irgun Zvai Leumi) in Mascha Rjetsch, January, 1934 (also quoted in Histoire de l'Armée Allemande by Jacques Benoist-Mechin, Vol. IV, p. 303).

 

We are not denying and are not afraid to confess that this war is our war and that it is waged for the liberation of Jewry... Stronger than all fronts together is our front, that of Jewry. We are not only giving this war our financial support on which the entire war production is based, we are not only providing our full propaganda power which is the moral energy that keeps this war going. The guarantee of victory is predominantly based on weakening the enemy forces, on destroying them in their own country, within the resistance. And we are the Trojan horses in the enemy's fortress. Thousands of Jews living in Europe constitute the principal factor in the destruction of our enemy. There, our front is a fact and the most valuable aid for victory.

- Chaim Weizmann, President of the World Jewish Congress, Head of the Jewish Agency and later President of Israel, in a Speech on December 3, 1942, in New York.

Islam needs to go through a reformation period so that others can trust them to treat others with respect.  Things may change with this Gaza ceasefire.  I suspect we now have a Gaza/Egypt accord that could well mean ease of border crossings between those two.  Do the Gazans stay in Gaza or emigrate to Egypt? Time will tell.

Remind us all again how many wars Iran has initiated in the 65 years during which Apartheid Israel has invaded and stolen land from every adjacent territory--repeatedly.

After 2003, Iraq is firmly in Iran's camp.

That the despotic feudal monarchies of Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain, etc. support Apartheid Israel's ethnic cleansing campaign tells us much more about them than it does either the genocidal Zionists or the Iranian government.

Yeah, we do know who started this war,

"The war began on June 5 with Israel launching surprise bombing raids against Egyptian air-fields after a period of high tension that included an Israeli raid into the Jordanian-controlled West Bank. Within six days, Israel had won a decisive land war. Israeli forces had taken control of the Gaza Strip and the Sinai Peninsula from Egypt, the West Bank and East Jerusalem from Jordan, and the Golan Heights from Syria."

To all the Jew Haters (I am not a Jew), I have a few questions:

1. What is the difference between apartheid, ethnic cleasing and extermination?

2. The current population of Israel is about 8 million.  Less than 6 million are Jews, and nearly 2 million call themselves Arabs. If Israel was such a bad place to live for "the other", why are there close to 2 million living there now?  Why don't they leave?  Why haven't the evil Jews "cleansed" them already?

3. Back to 6 million Jews in Israel.  That is 0.08% percent of the world's population.  And it is stuck in a shitty piece of desert surrounded by some really enlightened neighbors.  And you fucknuts need to blame ALL the world's problems on this tiny fraction of the world's population, living in a shitty neighborhood, surrounded by shitty neighbors??? It just doesn't hunt for me any longer.  Just deal with it already and redirect all that energy someplace else. 

Central Bankers would be a good place to start...

Again why hate a few million jews when you can focus your rage on a handful of lying fucktard central bankers?

That's correct. In Sunni muslim world, there has been a systematic villainization of Shiites in the media, and I would guess vice-versa. Whomever is orchestring this is preparing the ground for an intra-religious war similar to post-invasion Iraq but on a grander scale.

 

As a Muslim, I say fuck you to both ignorant salafists and zeoulous shiites.

What a disservice.

 

If gold, oil and silver priced in US Dollars rose to highs as they suggest in this cartoon, then the US Dollar would have to fall.  Fair enough?

 

If the US Dollar fell, the Euro, Yen, Pound and C-Dollar would have to climb.  Three of these are dependent on foreign oil and have no natural sources of oil, nor gold nor silver.

 

It is more likely that commodities priced in Euros would likely rocket and commodities prices in US Dollars would likely fall to offset.

The US Dollar is the world currency that accounts for over 60% of global trade.  This isn't changing anytime soon.

The vid didn't persuade me (although it's nicely made). 

Why would one hoard anything but food in case of such developments?  

Demand for oil would probably drop.  Sure, significant deliveries would be interrupted and let's say 20% of world oil capacity taken offline, but industrial production would instantly crash more than that.  There would be surplus of oil. People would lose jobs and stay home so demand from cars would collapse. Trucks would deliver only basic necessities. International travel and tourism would also collapse.  OK, the military would spend more, but I doubt they would make up for the loss in civilian economy. (Stat: DoD consumes about 300K+ bpd (2006)).

The same goes for PMs (I own, so I think I'm being objective). People who aren't buying now will be even less willing to buy then (and especiallly if prices were even higher). 

I can see how food prices would go up. And in case the shit really hits the fan, the only good investment would be a ticket to Mars on one of those next-gen private space ships. 

One plausible & PM-positive scenario that I read was that famous novel about a sudden U.S. dollar collapse written by a blogger sometime in 2009 or 2010. That was quite realistic.

There's not that much industrial production left to crash in the US...

Eventually, oil demand would fall, but not before supply was exhausted (as well as the consumer's pocketbook)

At which point the interdependencies become self-evident and the consequences less predictable

I wouldn't bet against the possibility that one or more countries - can't even begin to say which ones - have buried weapons of various kinds underneath US and major European cities. At a miniimum these would be CBW weapons - probably 'dirty bombs' as well. I'm equally sure that at least some of these weapons do not rely on remote triggering - rather, there are no doubt deeply concealed sleeper agents who will have the means to detonate these weapons regardless of external circumstances. I'm sure that the US has done this too - probably worldwide. after all, who is going to risk losing a substantial portion of an electronics-dependent retalitory strike force to a coordinated EMP attack? I have a feeling that the next world war isn't going to be about missiles and aircraft but about cities simply disappearing.

I think you are way off, it seems likely that their current cruise missile capability could knock out Saudi wells without too much trouble.
