Guest Post: The Linchpin Lie: How Global Collapse Will Be Sold To The Masses

Submitted by Brandon Smith of Alt-Market blog,

In our modern world there exist certain institutions of power.  Not government committees, alphabet agencies, corporate lobbies, or even standard military organizations; no, these are the mere “middle-men” of power.  The errand boys.  The well paid hitmen of the global mafia.  They are not the strategists or the decision makers. 

Instead, I speak of institutions which introduce the newest paradigms.  Who write the propaganda.  Who issue the orders from on high.  I speak of the hubs of elitism which have initiated nearly every policy mechanism of our government for the past several decades.  I am talking about the Council On Foreign Relations, the Tavistock Institute, the Heritage Foundation (a socialist organization posing as conservative), the Bilderberg Group, as well as the corporate foils that they use to enact globalization, such as Monsanto, Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, the Carlyle Group, etc.

Many of these organizations and corporations operate a revolving door within the U.S. government.  Monsanto has champions, like Donald Rumsfeld who was on the board of directors of its Searle Pharmaceuticals branch, who later went on to help the company force numerous dangerous products including Aspartame through the FDA.  Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan have a veritable merry-go-round of corrupt banking agents which are appointed to important White House and Treasury positions on a regular basis REGARDLESS of which party happens to be in office.  Most prominent politicians are all members of the Council on Foreign Relations, an organization which has openly admitted on multiple occasions that their goal is the destruction of U.S. sovereignty and the formation of a “one world government” or “supranational union” (their words, not mine).

However, one organization seems to rear its ugly head at the forefront of the most sweeping mass propaganda operations of our time, and has been linked to the creation of the most atrocious military methodologies, including the use of false flag events.  I am of course referring to the Rand Corporation, a California based “think tank” whose influence reaches into nearly every sphere of our society, from politics, to war, to entertainment. 

The Rand Corporation deals in what I would call “absolute gray”.  The goal of the group from its very inception was to promote a social atmosphere of moral ambiguity in the name of personal and national priority.  They did this first through the creation of “Rational Choice Theory”; a theory which prescribes that when making any choice, an individual (or government) must act as if balancing costs against benefits to arrive at an action that maximizes personal advantage.  Basically, the ends justify the means, and moral conscience is not a factor to be taken seriously if one wishes to be successful. 

Hilariously, rational choice theory has been attacked in the past by pro-socialist (collectivist) critics as “extreme individualism”; a philosophy which gives us license to be as “self serving” as possible while feeling patriotic at the same time.  In reality, the socialists should have been applauding Rand Corporation all along. 

What Rand had done through its propaganda war against the American people was to infuse the exact culture of selfishness needed to push the U.S. towards the socialist ideal.  At the onset of any communist or national socialist society (sorry socialists, but they do indeed come from the same collectivist mindset), the masses are first convinced to hand over ultimate power to the establishment in order to safeguard THEMSELVES, not others.  That is to say, the common collectivist man chooses to hand over his freedoms and participate in totalitarianism not because he wants what is best for the world, but because he wants what is best for himself, and he believes servitude to the system will get him what he wants with as little private sacrifice as possible (you know, except for his soul…). 

The psychologist Carl Jung notes in his observations of collectivism in Nazi Germany and Stalinist Russia that most citizens of those nations did not necessarily want the formation of a tyrannical oligarchy, but, they went along with it anyway because they feared for their own comfort and livelihoods.  Many a German supported the Third Reich simply because they did not want to lose a cushy job, or a steady paycheck, or they liked that the “trains ran on time”.  Socialism is by far the most selfish movement in history, despite the fact that they claim to do what they do “for the greater good of the greater number”.

Rand also used Rational Choice Theory as a means to remove questions of principle from the debate over social progress.  Rational Choice propaganda commonly presents the target audience with a false conundrum.  A perfect example would be the hardcore propaganda based television show ‘24’ starring Kiefer Sutherland, in which a government “anti-terrorism” agent is faced with a controlled choice scenario in nearly every episode.  This choice almost always ends with the agent being forced to set aside his morals and conscience to torture, kill, and destroy without mercy, or, allow millions of innocents to die if he does not.

Of course, the real world does not work this way.  Life is not a chess game.   Avenues to resolution of any crisis are limited only by our imagination and intelligence, not to mention the immense number of choices that could be made to defuse a crisis before it develops.  Yet, Rand would like you to believe that we (and those in government) are required to become monstrous in order to survive.  That we should be willing to forgo conscience and justice now for the promise of peace and tranquility later.

This is the age old strategy of Centralization; to remove all choices within a system, by force or manipulation, until the masses think they have nothing left but the choices the elites give them.  It is the bread and butter of elitist institutions like Rand Corporation, and is at the core of the push for globalization.

In my studies on the developing economic disaster (or economic recovery depending on who you talk to) I have come across a particular methodology many times which set off my analyst alarm (or spidey-sense, if you will).  This latest methodology, called “Linchpin Theory”, revolves around the work of John Casti, a Ph.D. from USC, “complexity scientist” and “systems theorist”, a Futurist, and most notably, a former employee of Rand Corporation:

http://www.viennareview.net/vienna-review-book-reviews/book-reviews/john-casti-an-optimist-of-the-apocalypse

Casti introduces his idea of “Linchpin Theory” in his book “X-Events:  The Collapse Of Everything”, and what I found most immediately striking about the idea of “Linchpin Events” was how they offered perfect scapegoat scenarios for catastrophes that are engineered by the establishment. 

Linchpin Theory argues that overt social, political, and technological “complexity” is to blame for the most destructive events in modern human history, and it is indeed an enticing suggestion for those who are uneducated and unaware of the behind the scenes mechanics of world events.  Casti would like you to believe that political and social tides are unguided and chaotic; that all is random, and disaster is a product of “chance” trigger events that occur at the height of a malfunctioning and over-complicated system.

What he fails to mention, and what he should well know being a member of Rand, is that global events do not evolve in a vacuum.  There have always been those groups who see themselves as the “select”, and who aspire to mold the future to there personal vision of Utopia.  It has been openly admitted in myriad official observations on historical events that such groups have had a direct hand in the advent of particular conflicts.  

For instance, Casti would call the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria an “X-event”, or linchpin, leading to the outbreak of WWI, when historical fact recalls that particular crisis was carefully constructed with the specific mind to involve the U.S.

Norman Dodd, former director of the Committee to Investigate Tax Exempt Foundations of the U.S. House of Representatives, testified that the Committee was invited to study the minutes of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace as part of the Committee's investigation. The Committee stated:

"The trustees of the Foundation brought up a single question.  If it is desirable to alter the life of an entire people, is there any means more efficient than war.... They discussed this question... for a year and came up with an answer: There are no known means more efficient than war, assuming the objective is altering the life of an entire people.  That leads them to a question: How do we involve the United States in a war.  This was in 1909."

So, long before the advent of Ferdinand’s assassination, plans were being set in motion by globalist interests to draw the U.S. into a large scale conflict in order to “alter the life, or thinking, of the entire culture”.  When a group of people set out to direct thinking and opportunity towards a particular outcome, and the end result is a culmination of that outcome, it is obviously not coincidence, and it is definitely not providence.  It can only be called subversive design. 

In the economic arena, one might say that the collapse of Lehman Bros. was the “linchpin” that triggered the landslide in the derivatives market which is still going on to this day.  However, the derivatives market bubble was a carefully constructed house of cards, deliberately created with the help of multiple agencies and institutions.  The private Federal Reserve had to artificially lower interest rates and inject trillions upon trillions into the housing market, the international banks had to invest those trillions into mortgages that they KNEW were toxic and likely never to be repaid.  The Federal Government had to allow those mortgages to then be chopped up into derivatives and resold on the open market.  The ratings agencies had to examine those derivatives and obviously defunct mortgages and then stamp them AAA.  The SEC had to ignore the massive fraud being done in broad daylight while sweeping thousands of formal complaints and whistle blowers under the rug.

This was not some “random” event caused by uncontrolled “complexity”.  This was engineered complexity with a devious purpose.  The creation of the derivatives collapse was done with foreknowledge, at least by some.  Goldman Sachs was caught red handed betting against their OWN derivatives instruments!  Meaning they knew exactly what was about to happen in the market they helped build!  This is called Conspiracy…

One might attribute Casti’s idea to a sincere belief in chaos, and a lack of insight into the nature of globalism as a brand of religion.  However, in his first and as far as I can tell only interview with Coast To Coast Radio, Casti promotes catastrophic “X-Events” as a “good thing” for humanity, right in line with the Rand Corporation ideology.  Casti, being a futurist and elitist, sees the ideas of the past as obsolete when confronted with the technological advancements of the modern world, and so, describes X-event moments as a kind of evolutionary “kickstart”, knocking us out of our old and barbaric philosophies of living and forcing us, through trial by fire, to adapt to a more streamlined culture.  The linchpin event is, to summarize Casti’s position, a culture’s way of “punishing itself” for settling too comfortably into its own heritage and traditions.  In other words, WE will supposedly be to blame for the next great apocalypse, not the elites…  

I might suggest that Casti's attitude seems to be one of general indifference to human suffering in the wake of his "X-Events", and that he would not necessarily be opposed to the deaths of millions if it caused the "advancement" of humanity towards a particular ideology.  His concept of "advancement" and ours are likely very different, though.  I suspect that he is well aware that X-Events are actually tools at the disposal of elitists to generate the "evolution" he so desires, and that evolution includes a collectivist result.

With almost every major economy on the globe on the verge of collapse and most now desperately inflating, taxing, or outright stealing in order to hide their situation, with multiple tinderbox environments being facilitated in the Pacific with China, North Korea, and Japan, and in the Middle East and Africa with Egypt, Syria, Iran, Pakistan, Yemen, Mali, etc., there is no doubt that we are living in a linchpin-rich era.  It is inevitable that one or more of these explosive tension points will erupt and cause a chain reaction around the planet.  The linchpin and the chain reaction will become the focus of our epoch, rather than the men who made them possible in the first place.

Strangely, Casti’s theory was even recently featured in an episode of the ABC mystery/drama show “Castle”, called “Linchpin” (what else?), in which a writer turned detective uncovers a plot by a “shadow group” to use the research of the innocent Dr. Nelson Blakely (apparently based on Casti) to initiate a collapse of the U.S. economy by assassinating the ten-year-old daughter of a prominent Chinese businessman, triggering a dump of U.S. Treasuries by China and fomenting WWIII:

http://www.alterna-tv.com/castle/xevents.htm

Now, I think anyone with any sense can see where this is going.  Casti and Rand Corporation are giving us a glimpse into the future of propaganda.  This is what will be written in our children’s history books if the globalists have their way. The fact that Linchpin Theory is featured in a primetime television show at all is a testament to Rand Corporation’s influence in the media.  But, as for the wider picture, are the trigger points around us really just a product of complex coincidence? 

Not a chance. 

Each major global hot-spot today can easily be linked back to the designs of international corporate and banking interests and the puppet governments they use as messengers.  Casti claims that “X-events” and “linchpins” cannot be accurately predicted, but it would seem that they can certainly be purposely instigated. 

The globalists have stretched the whole of the world thin.  They have removed almost every pillar of support from the edifice around us, and like a giant game of Jenga, are waiting for the final piece to be removed, causing the teetering structure to crumble.  Once this calamity occurs, they will call it a random act of fate, or a mathematical inevitability of an overly complex system.  They will say that they are not to blame.  That we were in the midst of “recovery”.  That they could not have seen it coming.

Their solution will be predictable.  They will state that in order to avoid such future destruction, the global framework must be “simplified”, and what better way to simplify the world than to end national sovereignty, dissolve all borders, and centralize nation states under a single economic and political ideal? 

Is it the Hegelian Dialectic all over again?  Yes.  Is it old hat feudalism and distraction?  Yes.  But, I have to hand it to Casti and Rand Corporation; they certainly have refined the argument for collectivism, centralization, technocracy, slavery, moral relativism, and false-flag dupery down to a near science…

Mr. Smith,

While you are one of my favorite authors here,

Your article is way too heavy on "theory" and "isms" and "ists."
(as we are, collectively)

Hiding behind "isms" is the favorite cover of the Self-Absorbed, sooner or later...

those whose eventually clog up the system, and bring it down,

and their "ism" is nothing more than "Self."

We must stop protecting the Self-Absorbed in places of influence and control.
That's the only way to break the cycle.

Maybe We'll have figured that out before the next empire becomes rogue.

Add the Trilateral Commission which wants a technocratic new world order, aided by pet academics and bribed political entertainers.

The Trilateral Commission whose Rockefeller tool of the Rothchilds, Oppenheimers and other Nazi, Communist funding psychopaths, thanked the U.S. press club including the New York Times for agreeing to keep its plots secret, and thereby assist its aims.

The main scream media pets dutifully schooled in certain re-education camps known as expensive colleges are 'educated fools' and 'useful idiots', said Lenin, much loved by corporatists, communists and fascists.

This globalism pursued by all Western governments and certain helpers in the East are the new feudalists. Their tag 'communism' failed, as did 'socialism'. Now they re-brand their fascist regime as globalist, and they have wrought more debt, more war and more ruin upon the world in record speed than any of their previous 'isms'.

There always has been elites and there may well always will be. Statism is the new slavery. Slaves are moar productive when they get to choose their labor and "believe" they "own" their land and have freedom. They "allow" you to vote for a reason.

Yep. And Hitler was democratically elected, and his Nazi ways were applauded by world banks and world governments. Then he set about selective slaughter, as did Lenin, and Stalin, and many other fascists since then.

'First they came.' An excellent poem by a pastor who witnessed the mission creep of fascists in Germany. The same mission creep that ruins the world today with endless usury and war.

They are not jew, christian, buddhist, hindu, secularist, moslem. They are hateful tools of the old feudalists, the dark side, the families who have profited off every war and connived to form the Federal Reserve Board in 1913, whereby the U.S. became their latest captured debt slave.

They have one aim: power. They have one tool: money. They choose one weapon: mass slaughter and famine.

Globalists choose their accomplices carefully: reward them or kill them.

There's nothing new under the sun, said the ancient Greek philosophers, and Shakespeare wrote in greater depth about the contest of ideas: power brokers vs everyone else. Character or venality.

Agreed. A pity the 99% will largely never understand this. The real people who run this world are not those in front of the curtain. Actually, their most powerful weapon may well be their creation/manipulation of language and propaganda (state-run/controlled education, media, and corporate advertising in respect to consumerism). They teach their history. To the victor goes the spoils. As is "his" story.

Here's a few simple differences:

Natural principles vs mandated laws

Natural vs Mandated (man-created)

Principles vs Laws

In order to "enforce" those mandated (man-created) laws, one (the State and their friends) most be elevated ABOVE the law. That's inequality right there. However the propaganda engrained in the people pretty much since birth blinds them to seeing natural concepts and principles. On one extreme we know that the Communist Party was above the law. On the other side of statism (believe in or the worship of a state or man-made lines in the sand called "countries"), it is much more subtle. The labels of "social worker" or "public service" are subtly trained into our minds as "good" things.

Yep. And George Orwell the former socialist explained the workings of statists, communists and globalists in his 'Nineteeneightyfour' novel. He only got the date wrong. He was a visionary.

Statists and his enemies have used his book as an instruction manual, rather than a warning. He wanted  a defence of the majority against the venal ways of kleptocracy.

We live in dangerous times. Stay close to family, friends, gold, silver, food and land. We shall overcome. That is the enduring promise of the Republic, for it is desired by every creed, color and religion. The many vs the venal few.

True that. Actually I'm more of an Anarcho-Capitalist nowadays. It has taken quite some time to evolve here. I started as a statist, then to a minarchist (Constitutionalist/Republic) but finally realized the even the "best" small government of the Founding Fathers eventually by its nature becomes big government and hence an anarchist. Monarchy is single ruler as anarchy is no ruler.

I'm an Ayn Rand fan for her objectivist philosophy but in many areas even she falls way short just as the Founding Fathers did. The Founding Fathers should have stopped right at the "right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness" just as Ayn Rand should have stopped at Galt's Gulch and not to return to establishing even a "minimum" government. I can see the point of and the temption of a "national defense" and "courts of arbitration," but because of our brainwashing I understand that it is much much more difficult to envision the possibility of competing, privately (hence self-enforcing) market of courts and localized defenses. Ayn Rand actually believes that there should be government to enforce IP (intellectual property like copyrights). I believe that violates her very own philosophy. Philosophy is the ultimate arbiter of consistence and universality. Hence principles must be universally applicable to every single person and hence natural. IP is one's property until he decides to share and profit from it.

Charity begins at home: family, friends, neighbors, gold, silver, land...one for all, all for one, locally.

This globalist bull$shit only profits big banks, big government, old feudalists.

What does it take for a person to live happily and healthily? Rhetorical question.

Consumerism. You just can't buy enough things to find happiness. /sarc

And yes family is natural and friends are voluntary.

Btw, Rand was panned and smeared by every establishment critic. That to me is a sign that she was onto something good. The good philosophers, or good anything, are the ones you'll never really hear about. Obviously, the establishment will push and publish all those they want us to see.

the awful truth is the "best" of us will go along
for the sake of position and power , thereby creating
the debilitating and functional means of the future
"civilization" based on further fraud, stealing and genocidal
murder, that does not say much for the best of us.
it rather suggests that we are in the process of eliminating
something from the species that once was seen as sacred
and essential and that is part of the plan, eliminate
the competition, it is a monopolistic strategy that was
once recognized as detrimental and even "evil", not a
necessary evil but an outlawed and subversive evil.

Instead of "socialist" try this on for size....

In all societies an "organized minority" will dominate and rule over the "disorganized majority", there are only two classes in society, "the governing" (the organized minority) and "the governed" (the disorganized majority.

Further, a circulation of elites, which is a dialectical theory of constant competition between elites, with one elite group replacing another repeatedly over time.

He's not theorizing: he's just describing. Very well. The article accurately describes what is going on, how, why.

There's Europe to prove it. They all say (politicians, the useful idiots except perhaps Beppe Grillo but I'm not so sure) "the only solution" is a "stronger Europe", a big one State with a central government. To resign sovereignity.

The same guys run all the show. From that to NWO...

Brandon Smith also enumerates the essential rules of tyranny:

1) Keep them afraid

2) Keep them isolated

3) Keep them desperate

4) Send out the jackboots

They've already created the European Police Force Eurogendfor.

I'm not an expert, I haven't read as much as I'd like on social theory or even economic theory. 

But I know what I see and feel in the world of my today...and it's not good.

I don't know how things and events are going to ultimatly play out, but my guess and my heart of heart's makes me think that things 

are going to get a lot worse before they get better, in a multitude of ways.

I can't see how the fiat currency and increased debt to GDP globally can continue that much longer.

But I'm not an expert, perhaps there are ways to continue to kick the can down to road that I can't dream or comprehend.

The overwhelming "feeling" I have of the US and the world can be summed up in one word, "fragile" 

I feel like events are lining up and just waiting for the right push (or pull) and the downward spiral will commence.

I first believed that the problems we have was because of stupidity and incompetence, then I thought that no one or group can collectively be that dumb, so it has to be 

intentional.

Is there a cabal or conspiracy of global elite bent on a no borders one world government? Not sure, maybe. My biggest problem with that is China, Russia and Muslims.

I find it very hard to believe that these three will ever give up their individual goals, doctrine and agenda.

They may band together for a time, as in the enemy of my enemy is my (temporary) friend and a means to an end...but "in" the end I don't see them turning over control to a central group collective type of ruling party.

But like I said, I'm no expert.

What I do see is the continued decay of stability and any thing that resembles ethics or a moral base. I see the continued rise of problems based largely out of good ole' fashioned greed and hubris.

And it seems to me that's enough to cause concern ;)

I share your concern, and no one needs to be an 'expert'. We need only trust our own eyes and ears, the experience of our lives.

Re: China, Russia and Muslims.

The politburo of communist China, the oligarchs of rabid resource stealing Russia and the fascist Islam works very well with central banksters worldwide.

Follow the money. There you will see the reality of this horrid globalism, and how it cons the trusting masses: using national symbols and heart felt customs to corral the masses into the new feudalism which wants one thing: power and money for the few at the expense of the new debt slaves, worldwide.
