Guest Post: The Slow Death Of The Old Global Order

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Submitted by Robert Merry via The National Interest,

In the spring of 2012, The National Interest produced a special issue under the rubric of “The Crisis of the Old Order: The Crumbling Status Quo at Home and Abroad.” The thesis was that the old era of relative global stability, forged through the crucibles of the Great Depression and World War II, was coming unglued. In introducing the broad topic to readers, TNI editors wrote, “Only through a historical perspective can we fully understand the profound developments of our time and glean, perhaps only dimly, where they are taking us. One thing is clear: they are taking us into a new era. The only question is how much disruption, chaos and bloodshed will attend the transition from the Old Order to whatever emerges to replace it.”

Since publication of that special issue of the magazine, events have seemed to bolster the thesis that the current global situation and the American domestic political situation are inherently unstable, and stability will return only with the emergence of some kind of new order. Leaving aside the U.S. domestic scene for purposes of this digression, the gathering global crisis got a penetrating survey the other day from William Pfaff, the longtime geopolitical analyst for the International Herald Tribune (recently renamed the International New York Times).

Pfaff said the world faces an “international disorder unmatched since the interwar 1930s,” fostered by the ongoing Ukraine crisis, the “self-destructive forces” of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, growing instability within the world of Islam, and the “serious risk of collapse” of the European Union. Pfaff notes with a small measure of relief that the world isn’t beset these days by ideological dictatorships on the march or any new waves of totalitarianism. Today’s problems, he says, are merely “confusion, incompetence, and intellectual and moral disorder.” He adds: “But these are bad enough, in an over-armed world.”

What’s most troubling about all this is that today’s national leaders seem utterly lacking in any serious consciousness of just how dangerous the global situation is. The current Ukraine crisis , for example, is the product of a long-term Western tendency (the word “strategy" hardly qualifies here, given the lack of any coherent logic involved) to push eastward through what once were the buffer territories of Eastern Europe and press right up to the Russian border.

Though highly provocative, this didn’t generate any serious crisis when Russia remained weak after the Soviet collapse and the eastward push didn’t extend into territories that for centuries had been part of Russia’s traditional sphere of influence. But the United States, European Union and NATO remained blithely unmindful of the consequences when they kept pushing as Russia gained sufficient power to resist incursions into its areas of crucial national interest. What were the leaders of these Western entities thinking?

Pfaff puts that question a little differently: “Why Should Slavic and Orthodox-Uniate Ukraine, its history painfully intertwined with Russia’s, be made a member of what was and still essentially is Charlemagne’s post–Roman Europe?” With one sentence he places today’s sordid events surrounding Ukraine into a broad historical perspective of more than a millennium.

For that matter, adds Pfaff, “Why does Turkey belong in Christian Europe?" He wonders if President Obama, should he be asked such questions, could give a considered and historically grounded answer. “Or does the machinery of foreign-policy making grind relentlessly along behind Mr. Obama’s back, or beyond his attention?”

Good question. And it’s particularly intriguing given the machinations of that meddling bureaucrat, Victoria Nuland, Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs, who worked behind the scenes  to foment the uprising that eventually ousted the duly-elected Ukrainian president, Viktor Yanukovych. She even identified the man who should replace Yanukovych after his ouster and—presto!—he did indeed emerge as Ukraine’s interim leader. It turns out that the United States has spent some $5 billion in fostering “democratic institutions” in Ukraine designed to nudge the country away from Russian sway.

Saner heads would have understood just how dangerous this kind of activity can be. And so some questions intrude: Did anyone in the State Department inform President Obama that this was going on? If anyone had, would the president or his informant have understood the potentially incendiary nature of such diplomatic intrusiveness? Or was the president simply left in the dark, as Pfaff has suggested, while his minions engaged in activity destined to create an unnecessary crisis in U.S.-Russian relations and possibly unleash destabilizing ethnic tensions in a crucial corner of the world?

For historical perspective, it’s worth noting that we look back now with a certain disdain upon the heads of state grappling with events leading to World War I. Those events ended a century of relative stability and peace in Europe, and the men who let that grand epoch pass are seen in history as hapless, out of touch, even stupid. In fact, they weren’t stupid, but they were out of touch and that rendered them hapless in the face of events they didn’t understand.

President Obama and those around him aren’t stupid either, but they don’t seem to understand the nature of our time and the challenges posed by a fading era. They seem incapable of grappling with the kinds of broad historical questions posed by William Pfaff.

But the problem doesn’t reside only with the current administration. There seems to be a zeitgeist in play that retards the ability of our leaders and intellectuals to grasp the transformative nature of our time and hence the havoc besetting the globe. Pfaff is equally hard on George W. Bush and his father, George H. W. Bush, particularly regarding what he calls “the Muslim conflagration.” He writes: “Iraq, Syria, Egypt, Libya, Yemen, Lebanon, Afghanistan, Pakistan—in all of them, a President Bush, or President Obama, together with his accomplices, has passed their way, sowing annihilation."

He’s right, of course, and equally correct in dismissing the ongoing efforts by U.S. officials to find a solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict “in the face of the manifest unwillingness of Israel to allow the conflict to be solved on any terms that do not expel all the Palestinians from the Palestinian Occupied Territories, and award these to Israel (God’s lands, therefore Zionist Israel’s: Sheldon Adelson, sales agent)."

One could argue that it isn’t in America’s interest to push Israel on this matter, though that is eminently debatable. More to the point, though, is the haplessness of a nation continually going back to the well with high expectations of finding water, when in fact the well has been dry for decades. That kind of behavior by any nation denotes a clear lack of seriousness.

Seriousness is what the times call for. We are living through a crisis of the old order, and it demands new thinking, new cautions, new understandings of the profound challenges of this pregnant historical interregnum. If Western leaders continue along the course they’ve been on in the post-Cold War period, they are likely to go down in history in much the same light as those sadly obtuse leaders who presided over the onset of World War I.

"The only question is how much disruption, chaos and bloodshed will attend the transition from the Old Order to whatever emerges to replace it.”

Probably a lot because it's caused by the very existence of government.

History and English lesson: Anything that is not a monarchy can be called a republic. It is a pretty meaningless term, just like "democracy," "capitalism," "rule of law," and so on.

More to the point, I'd like someone to name one nation-state on this planet which does not fit the description: "an oligarchy where the rich rule and the majority are irrelevant to policy decisions."

Which is to say that the country has no actual leaders at all and is instead being run into the ground by behind-the-scenes sociopaths who are as out of control as they are in control.  

Which is why the world is as likely to plunge into world war today as it was a hundred years ago.

Bob Carr: Diary of a Foreign Minister. Speaking to the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, Carr hit out at the “pro-Israel lobby in Melbourne,” saying it wielded “extraordinary influence” on Australia’s foreign policy during his time in Julia Gillard’s cabinet.  As The Guardian reported:

 

Following Carr’s comments The Jerusalem Post sourly noted that: “John Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt, who wrote a 2007 book alleging that the ‘Israel lobby’ has a stranglehold on US Foreign policy, have an Australian cousin: former foreign minister Bob Carr.”

Free Masonry introduced the vote and a secret ballot to a world of hereditary despots. In Masonry all Masons are equal, a novel concept for the 1700’s.  This idea spilled over into the Republic.  You have been persuaded by charlatans who profess secret knowledge in order to gain listeners and sell books.  Washington was the Grand Master of the Virginia Lodge.  Had it not been for the fact that a third of the Continental Army was made up of Masons that army would have deserted at Valley Forge.  You would have lost the revolution and the republic would never have been born.

 

Go to a Masonic meeting today and you will find a bunch of old men in their seventies and eighties talking about their sick a dying brothers and trying to organize the next fish fry or pancake breakfast.  The grand schemes and plots are fantasies of pretenders.

Washington gets named all the time.  Hamilton his aide and first sec of treasury was he a mason?  Ya there is the whole hidden side of this isn't there.  Hamilton was probably just a early zionist because Washingtons right hand man wouldn't be a member.  What about Robert E. Lee? Where is his house now and who made that happen.  I would also like to ask how that republic thing is going?  Why isn't the brotherhood doing anything, I mean after the revolution one would think your group would be lining up to keep what they achieved.  Maybe 1812 had something to do about that and why not talk about it.  Silence, ooo is there more then one side to this?

Never judge a secret group by it's public front, actions, or lack of them, are louder.  

Usefull tools are always venerated.

No disrespect intended, but I do beg the question.  Are you speaking policy, because if not I'm don't hear the anger I would expect.

My understanding is that the freemasons evolved from the knights templar. The knights became the money-changers by securing the wealth of the oligarchs of the day.  The oligarchs who once welcomed the services of the templars, eventually realized that the templars threatened their control of the medium of exchange.

Then came friday the 13th, 1307, when Jacques DeMolay (the last Grand Master of the the templars) and around 60 of his captains were liquidated by order of Pope Clement V.

The bottom line here is that there are no bad -vs- good guys on a partisan basis.  There are good masons and bad masons.  There are good christians and bad christians.

But, we can quite easily identify the enemies of humanity.  Ironically, they are humans, too.

Your enemy places himself above you, with no justification as to why he should be there.

Your enemy offers that you can vote on a machine that has already been programmed to ignore your vote.

Let me stop here, and defer to those who taught me;

I have posted this before, to no avail, but maybe GoldenTool can appreciate:

 

  • Poor, wretched, and stupid peoples, nations determined on your own misfortune and blind to your own good! You let yourselves be deprived before your own eyes of the best part of your revenues; your fields are plundered, your homes robbed, your family heirlooms taken away. You live in such a way that you cannot claim a single thing as your own; and it would seem that you consider yourselves lucky to be loaned your property, your families, and your very lives. All this havoc, this misfortune, this ruin, descends upon you not from alien foes, but from the one enemy whom you yourselves render as powerful as he is, for whom you go bravely to war, for whose greatness you do not refuse to offer your own bodies unto death. He who thus domineers over you has only two eyes, only two hands, only one body, no more than is possessed by the least man among the infinite numbers dwelling in your cities; he has indeed nothing more than the power that you confer upon him to destroy you. Where has he acquired enough eyes to spy upon you, if you do not provide them yourselves? How can he have so many arms to beat you with, if he does not borrow them from you? The feet that trample down your cities, where does he get them if they are not your own? How does he have any power over you except through you? How would he dare assail you if he had no cooperation from you? What could he do to you if you yourselves did not connive with the thief who plunders you, if you were not accomplices of the murderer who kills you, if you were not traitors to yourselves? You sow your crops in order that he may ravage them, you install and furnish your homes to give him goods to pillage; you rear your daughters that he may gratify his lust; you bring up your children in order that he may confer upon them the greatest privilege he knows — to be led into his battles, to be delivered to butchery, to be made the servants of his greed and the instruments of his vengeance; you yield your bodies unto hard labor in order that he may indulge in his delights and wallow in his filthy pleasures; you weaken yourselves in order to make him the stronger and the mightier to hold you in check. From all these indignities, such as the very beasts of the field would not endure, you can deliver yourselves if you try, not by taking action, but merely by willing to be free. Resolve to serve no more, and you are at once freed. I do not ask that you place hands upon the tyrant to topple him over, but simply that you support him no longer; then you will behold him, like a great Colossus whose pedestal has been pulled away, fall of his own weight and break in pieces.

I've known many masons and the local yokels are just like you describe. Normal people. Those at the bottom of the pyramid are ignorant of what goes on at the top. My grandfather was a proud mason and he certainly wasn't part of an evil elite. But even he came to realize the guys at the top were a bunch of psychos.

In Christian countries, a Bible is on the altar inside the mason lodge. In muslim countries, a koran is there. The dominant religion is grafted into the lodge and used to fool initiates into thinking the masons are believers in their God. The same applies in India, Israel, etc. In Utah, Joseph Smith's book is the front man.

Read up on what goes on at the top of your former organization. The Grand Architect is a fallen angle named lucifer. Albert Pike said so in Morals and Dogma, aka the handbook of freemasons. The next time you are in DC go by and visit his tomb and see for yourself.

The guys at the top wield the power. They have the money and control the institutions. They are the ones that give the orders. The vast majority of low level masons (even some high level guys too) are kept in the dark and just follow orders.

What low level freemason can decide to make these two monuments (there are hundreds of others) and then have the tax payer fund them forever?

It is doubtful that very many low level so-called Christian Freemasons have read

"Morals and Dogma", because it appears to be Pagan New Age religion,

Back in the time when George Washington was a Freemason,

there were only Three Degrees of Freemasonry,

and Freemasonry was somewhat Christian in appearance.

Later, as many more degrees, higher degrees were created,

some by Christians,

and some by a wide variety of charlatans,

many of the higher degrees became Pagan, or anti-Christian,

as consolidated by Confederate General Albert Pike, after the American Civil War,

an early leader of the Southern Jurisdiction of Freemasonry, or Scottish Rite Freemasonry, which eventually had 33 Degrees.

Northern Jurisdiction Freemasonry in the US was mostly English Rite Freemasonry, with only Three Degrees, although extra degrees were added later.

Scottish Rite Freemasonry became the most powerful form of Freemasonry in the United States, and eventually spread further throughout the world, by the influence and power of the United States.

Today's problem is that the vast majority of people are just high-function monkeys, not humans.

http://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2007-10/uoc-ham102407.php

Struggles for power within a group sometimes culminate in a revolution, in which all members of the most dominant family are suddenly attacked by entire families of subordinates. These revolutions result in drastic changes in the structure of power within rhesus societies, not unlike those occurring following human revolutions. There is one situation, however, in which all of the well-established social structure evaporates: when a group of rhesus macaques confronts another one and monkey warfare begins. Rhesus macaques dislike strangers and will viciously attack their own image in a mirror, thinking it’s a stranger threatening them. When warfare begins, “Even a low-ranking rhesus loner becomes an instant patriot. Every drop of xenophobia in rhesus blood is transformed into fuel for battle,” Maestripieri wrote.

“What rhesus macaques and humans may have in common is that many of their psychological and behavioral dispositions have been shaped by intense competition between individuals and groups during the evolutionary history of these species” Maestripieri said. Rhesus groups can function like armies, and this may explain why these monkeys have been so successful in the competition with other primates.

Right.  And why are those actions bad?

Not trying to lead you by the nose here- those things are bad.  They are bad because other people are essentially just like you with thoughts and feelings every bit as valid as yours and they don't deserve to be manipulated, controlled, or objectified.  Empathy.  Some people got it.  Some don't.

It's an important point because most people know- or have been told- that those things are bad, but they don't know why.  Maybe they were told God said so, society said so, or they learned it's the safest way to get along, but they don't actually in their hearts believe people other than their close relations are as valid as themselves.  So when rubber meets road these ungrounded people are capable of incredibly immoral acts because at a fundamental level they believe themselves separate from others.

Most people are unwilling or incapable of placing themselves in another's shoes and looking at a situation from another's perspective.

Since those that can see a situation from another's perspective are in the minority they are forced to go along with the majority or be labled traitors.

An example: During the late 1930's to early 1940's about 80% of the population of the US was adamantly opposed to entering the ongoing war in Europe. Even when US Navy ships were attacked 'accidentally' in the Atlantic Ocean there was no sympathy for joining the European conflict. But US 'leaders' found a way to engage in the European war... It was called Pearl Harbor and it's causes have been debated endlessly and revisionist historians have all but covered up the reasons that Pearl Harbor happened. 

After Pearl Harbor Winston Churchill famously said 'I slept soundly that night'.

'Leaders', or their minions, will always find a way to start or join a war even if the majority of their citizens are against war. "Fuck the EU" was a profound statement of intent.

You need to stop exclaiming and flailing...

You need to reiterate your standing for the Principles, and the Rule of Law, and set the context...

You need to expose and publicly humiliate false leaders.

You need to name names.

You need to educate.

You need to leverage the communication tools and methods...

You need to be peaceful,

What is happening in Ukraine and the unrest in many areas in the world brings into focus the many conflicts that develop when a region decides to change governments often outside the recognized democratic system of voting. In some cases even after an overwhelming vote such as in Crimea the whole process is called into question.

Unfortunately the American civil war did not resolve the issue of succession forever and definitely was not a template for a solution that should be used in countries across the planet. Bottom-line many in politics are slow to give up control and this will not change. For more on this important issue see the article below.

He failed to mention the role of international zionism. Nuland is a prime example of the type. He failed to mention the power of banker elites over western governments. Globalization has destroyed what we once called the working class in the west. Along with the new second push of globalization the middle classes are now being run down. Wealth transfer from the bottom 85% has all be up to the top, with most going to the 1%. All this is setting Europe into collapse as governments borrow money to deal with masses of people who can't find work or work that pay a living wage. One new factor in Russia and Eastern Ukraine, besides the older well know historical problems, is the fear of the debt slavery so much of the EU is now in. Many Russian Ukrainians have been heard to protest loudly that they do not want the Brussel's communists nor the NATO fascists, they don't want EU austerity and they even say they fear the IMF is coming to load them with debt for ever. Guess what. They are right! Were I one of them, I would take upa gun too and fight to keep the Brussels bankers out. Who can blame them. Only CNN can blame them, because they are whores and liars.

As I mentioned above, Douglas Reed had some ideas about who was behind the incessant "revolution" that seeks to destroy. He discusses at length the issue, as only a true (old time) journalist can do.

Commencing in 1951, Douglas Reed spent more than three years working in the New York Central Library, or tapping away at his typewriter in spartan lodgings in New York or Montreal. With workmanlike zeal, the book was rewritten, all 300,000 words of it and the epilogue added only in 1956.

The story of the book itself — the unusual circumstances in which it was written, and how the manuscript, after having remained hidden for more than 20 years, came to light and was at last made for publication — is part of the history of our century, throwing some light on a struggle of which the multitudes know nothing: that conducted relentlessly and unceasing on the battleground for the human mind.

Although there is correspondence to show that the title was one discussed with one publisher, the manuscript was never submitted but remained for 22 years stowed away in three zippered files on top of a wardrobe in Reed's home in Durban, South Africa.

The "Controversy of Zion" can be left to speak for itself; indeed, it is a work of revisionist history and religious exposition; the central message of which is revealed in almost every page, understanding and compassionate of people, but severely critical of the inordinate and dangerous ambitions of their leaders.

Everything that has happened since Reed wrote those last sentences in 1956 has continued to endorse the correctness of his interpretation of more than 2000 years of troubled history.

I should add that Reed's evaluation of the subject is very specific and pointed. He does not castigate all Jews; in fact, he shows how a particular segment witiuh the cohort has even co-opted their co-religionists, much to their detriment.

This man was there, he lived it...it is not something that he wrote about from an abstract point of view.

Furthermore, and finally, this book should not be read and accepted 'whole cloth' without doing the additional personal research necessary for such an endeavor. It should be used a basis of reference for further investigation and validation. Fortunately, Reed's book, coupled with the Internet, make that an easy yet interesting task.

Yeah, if you're lazy and you want others to do your thinking for you.

The DB version draws the wrong conclusion; not because it offers an authoritative rebuttal at odds with Reed, but because the DB author starts off with a preconception and fills in his argument to support his position.

We must not let others do our thinking for us...

No kidding. Globalization has built the 'american' middle class. It is only the massive transfer of wealth that the globalization act has allowed that the 'american' middle class was enabled.

But globalization is ending. 'Americans' are closer to the end of this process than its start. Therefore the inputs toward the 'american' middle class they were increasing in the expansion era are dwindling.

That is why the 'american' middle class is being slashed, because the globalization process is no longer providing enough inputs to sustain that big, fat blob that is the 'american' middle class.

For the servants of WeThePeople, there is no other choice than sacrifying part of the 'american' middle class so that the other part might endure.

All previous global economic re-sets have been cushioned by the existence of a large portion of the population involved in hunting and/or agriculture such that they had some degree of self-sufficiency. That percentage is way down now, and believes that food comes from the government and/or Walmart. The next re-set may involve war, but it will be preceeded by debt defaults and the breaking of trust in government -- and it will be much worse than anything the planet has ever seen.

Politics is the distraction.

Follow the money.

Starve the squid.

Funny. All of them are 'american'.

There is no other moving force these days than 'americanism'.

'Americans' are in charge or in control everywhere.

I was only commenting that the JFK hit team (Bush-CIA-Kissinger-Neocon) and it's immediate allies are circling the drain and about to die off. To the average American, they were much better camouflaged than the flagrant commie Clinton/neoliberal machine.

 

You see, organized criminals, even murderers and assasins can be reasoned with and bargained with... communist ideologues cannot.

I'm not sure if I like this article. Too many important aspects and forces that rule the world are not mentioned.

For example: only recently historians have proven, that it was Germany which tried to avoid WW1. For how many decades "German militarism" was used as reason for Germany's destruction?

Since it is now known, that only very few people behind the scenes have conspired for WW1, and that it were inf act these forces that have won, and have been also behind WW2 and also won this war, the following sentence from the article seems to miss the point:

What’s most troubling about all this is that today’s national leaders seem utterly lacking in any serious consciousness of just how dangerous the global situation is.

This sentence does not at all reflect, that these evil forces that rule until today, also with WW1 played a risky game. And with WW2, when Germany a few times only was close to victory by a hairbreadth, the new German barter trade system would have been the end of the international banks and parasites and Marxism. The red and yellow Globalists needed to unite to overcome this threat - but they succeeded. And they have been expanding their Wolrd Disorder ever since.

What happens in Ukraine or Syria can only be judged in many years, what their plan really was.

But one is sure: they do not hesitate to create chaos and take big risk! What seems a chaotic development of incompetent politicians for outsiders, could be the perfect development according to their plan. Just like WW1 was unleashed and Germany couldn't prevent it. And the world has believed in a "catastrophe" while the blind sheeple hailed and re-elected the forces, that fabricated it, while they blamed others. That's how Plutocracies work! Make the sheeple believe in a nonexistent reality, while the REAL deciders and their real plans are kept hidden! Do you really want to  underrate these forces of darkness?

What worries me most, is that Russia today is very much in the same situation as Germany in 1933 was.

Many Germans were living in robbed land under Polish rulership (treaties of Versailles and St. Germain). Many Russians today live under Ukrainian rulership.

Things become very interesting, when someone looks closer at the historic facts: When Hitler took power in Germany, the relationships between Germany and Poland were almost dead. Under Hitler they became much better, because his compromise with the very moderate suggestion of a corridor to Danzig was for the sane Polish forces very attractive. Germany and Poland were already close to solve the problem, where the forces of evil hoped in 1918, that "this is the source for the next war".

And then the forces of evil did what? They offered Poland unconditional support! No matter what Poland would do, they would attack Germany, if Poland was involved in a war with Germany. Even if Poland would attack Germany. The peaceful democrats have played their best card...

From that moment on, the sane Polish forces were put checkmate and the chauvinists began to dominate the Polish politics. From that moment on all German offers were rejected. All German compromises were treated as weakness. And when the Poles began to openly slaughter German farmers, the forces of evil had Hitler, where they wanted him: he was forced to protect the Germans under Polish occupation.

And Putin could be put into exactly the same situation today!

Therefore it is catastrophic, if people do not know how the historic facts but only know the Globalist propagandashit about WW1 and WW2! If one believes in this propaganda, he cannot see, that today the very same forces again are playing their deadly game!

Therefore I can only warn to underestimate the Plutocrats! They know very well what they are doing. And the escalation in Ukraine could be their next, already planned step.

Putin could prevent an escalation in Syria. But in Ukraine there is a factor in play Putin has no control about: massacring of ethnic Russians could be used to force Russia into war (if a war was planned) - which would then be spun by the forces of global evil how they always spin it: "aggression"!

"Aggression" is not spin in that particular part of the world. Ukraine is one of the most sought after and fought over pieces of real estate in the world...and in world history.

That is still true even today apparently. "You really can own a million acres" in that part of the world.

If Russia is forced into war over Ukraine, Russia will not be able to support China when the "Pivot to Asia" kicks in.

The break-up and fragmentation of China is the ultimate goal. 

War with Iran and Syria was put on hold because Russia had to be first dealt with.

China  vs  US/Japan/India/Vietnam/Australia/Malaysia/Indonesia/South Korea(?) will lose without Russian support. 

It is in China's interest to give full support to Russia in the Ukraine.

(This is just a thought.)

My thought on this: only India has the power to break up China, the population and nuclear weapons, so they can use what results from the end. America can not. They can nuke it but then can recover no resources and it's all about resources for the USA.
India, however, has zero need to do this to China... at this time.

Great post, thanks for the Education.

I hope the difference between this event and the previous wars, is in fact, enlightenement, enlightenement of the truth, the truth about the governments, the truth about money and power.

I hope that people continue to be unplugged from the system they are in, to at least try and protest such a provocation of war.

Disobedience at all levels is required to not play the games of the oligarchs. i just hope there is enough people to do this

When reading that, it jumps to the face how much 'americans' live in a fabricated world.

It has no direction other than than satisfying their fantasy. Every situation must be dressed accordingly to the goal they want to achieve.

One second,'americans' say this, the other second, they say the opposite because saying just as the second before would go against their goals.

I generally despise the "wrong side of history" meme. My prediction is that the disruption will be world wide. the chaos will be intense, and the bloodshed might be typical in %, but the worlds population is much larger than previous adjustments. This time may be different in scope , but not in pattern. It will be a giant step backwards. Barbarians will dominate for generations.

Usually someone always comes out on top but the 3 things that may end this forever:
Fukushima
Global Warming
nuclear /  biological WW3
in that order of being likely.

If we're smart we can almost certainly avoid the war. Apparently with all the fraudulent hoax-callers we're not likely to solve global warming. Solving it requires people stop calling it a hoax because it isn't.

Fukushima's a tough one: almost no one's pretending it's a small problem to be ignored but just about no one anywhere has any clue how to contain it.

Bundy's crime; Bundy the producer, has instigated the envy of the parasite.

If you go thru the list of Bundy's persecutors and their enforcers, you will not find a producer among them. Armed and unarmed mooches. The lot of them.
