The New World Order And The Rise Of The East

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Submitted by Brandon Smith of Alt-Market.com,

“Actually, as Winston well knew, it was only four years since Oceania had been at war with Eastasia and in alliance with Eurasia. But that was merely a piece of furtive knowledge, which he happened to possess because his memory was not satisfactorily under control. Officially the change of partners had never happened. Oceania was at war with Eurasia: therefore Oceania had always been at war with Eurasia. The enemy of the moment always represented absolute evil, and it followed that any past or future agreement with him was impossible…” – George Orwell, 1984

Nations, cultures and populations are best controlled through the use of false paradigms. This is a historically proven tactic exploited for centuries by oligarchs around the world. Under the Hegelian dialectic (the very foundation of the Marxist and collectivist ideology), one could summarize the trap of false paradigms as follows:

If (A) my idea of freedom conflicts with (B) your idea of freedom, then (C) neither of us can be free until everyone agrees to be a slave.

In other words: problem, reaction, solution. Two sides are pitted against each other in an engineered contest. Each side is led to believe that its position is the good and right position. Neither side questions the legitimacy of the conflict, because each side fears this will lead to ideological weakness and disunity.

The two sides go to war, sometimes economically, sometimes militarily. Both governments demand that individuals relinquish freedom, independence and self-reliance, a sacrifice that “must be made” so that victory can be achieved. In the end, neither nation nor society has truly won. The only winners are the oligarchs, who sing words of loyalty to their respective camps, while acting in league from the very beginning. The oligarchs, who never intended to target each other in the first place. Their target, their ONLY target, was the citizenry itself — the dumbfounded masses now mesmerized with shock, awe and terror.

The false paradigm method and the Hegelian dialectic are in full force today. Only a few years ago, Russia, China and the United States were considered close economic and political allies. Today, those alliances are being quickly scrapped in order to make room for conflict, a conflict useful only to a select international elite. As I have outlined in numerous articles, including Russia Is Dominated By Global Banks, Too and False East/West Paradigm Hides The Rise Of Global Currency, when one looks beyond all the theatrical rhetoric being thrown around between Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin, the ultimate reality is that the relationship of both governments to the global banking elite is the same.

During both of Obama’s Presidential terms, he has flooded his cabinet with current and former employees of Goldman Sachs, a longtime proving ground for elitist financiers with globalist aspirations.

And who is the primary economic adviser to Vladimir Putin and the Russian state? Why Goldman Sachs, of course!

U.S. and European elites have been calling for a centralization of economic power under the control of the International Monetary Fund, as a well as a new global currency.

Not surprisingly, Putin also wants a new global currency under the control of the IMF.

Obama is closely advised by globalists like Zbigniew Brzezinski, a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and cofounder of the Trilateral Commission, who in his book Between Two Ages: America’s Role In The Technetronic Era states:

"The nation-state is gradually yielding its sovereignty …[F]urther progress will require greater American sacrifices. More intensive efforts to shape a new world monetary structure will have to be undertaken, with some consequent risk to the present relatively favorable American position…"

As long as he has been in power, Putin has been closely advised by Henry Kissinger, yet another member of the CFR and proponent of the Trilateral Commission, who has said:

"In the end, the political and economic systems can be harmonized in only one of two ways: by creating an international political regulatory system with the same reach as that of the economic world; or by shrinking the economic units to a size manageable by existing political structures, which is likely to lead to a new mercantilism, perhaps of regional units. A new Bretton Woods kind of global agreement is by far the preferable outcome…"

Both Kissinger and Brzezinski refer to this harmonized global economic and political structure as the “New World Order.” The fact that the political leaders of Russia and the United States are clearly being directed by such men should not be taken lightly.

China, too, has made demands for a restructuring of the global monetary system into a centralized currency basket under the dominance of the IMF.

China’s ties to the banking elite of London are well documented.

The call on both sides for a new monetary system and the end of the dollar as world reserve seems to greatly contradict the fantasy that the East and West are fundamentally at odds.  The progression towards a world currency and/or economic governance also appears to be growing along with the consolidation of economic and military ties between Eastern nations. This would suggest that the rise of the East and the crippling of Western elements is actually advantageous to global bankers in the long term.

While disinformation agents and media shills have attempted to downplay any danger to the strength of America and the dollar, Eastern governments have been swiftly establishing alliances and decoupling from U.S. influence.

The historic 30-year Russia/China gas deal has, of course, been finalized. This deal is already eating up market space and influencing the way in which the energy trade traditionally behaves.

China and Russia have also expanded on their bilateral agreements made in 2010, which remove the dollar as the reserve currency in transactions between the two nations.

China’s thirst for gold continues, while the country is now building its own gold exchange to rival the U.S. Comex.

Russia has recently established what Putin calls the “Eurasian Economic Union,” a deal which includes Kazakhstan and Belarus, two countries that hold large, freshly discovered oil fields.

In response to the engineered conflict over Ukraine, as well as the “Asian-Pacific Pivot” by the U.S., China has openly called for a new security pact with Russia and Iran.

Let’s also not forget that China is set to surpass the U.S. as the world’s largest economy by 2016, according to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).

While the rise of the East is being painted in Western circles as a threat to U.S. and NATO dominance, the bigger picture is being hidden from view. Yes, indeed, the consolidation of the East is a considerable threat to the dollar and the U.S. economy — most importantly in the event that China refuses to accept dollars as payment on exports and debts. With the world’s largest exporter/importer refusing to take dollars as a reserve, most nations will inevitably follow their lead.  The argument against this development is, of course, that there is no rational trigger for such a violent fiscal attack. I would remind skeptics that there was no rational trigger for the current strengthened relations between Russia and China until the Ukraine crisis. Is anyone really foolish enough to bet against another direct or indirect conflict between NATO and the East? And is anyone really ignorant enough to assume that said event would not be used as an excuse to cut the legs out from under the dollar completely?

The New World Order players have positioned the East and West for just such a scenario. Why? In my article Who Is The New Secret Buyer Of U.S. Debt?, I give evidence indicating that the Bank of International Settlements and the IMF are preparing the financial world for a new global monetary system, brought into existence by a second Bretton Woods conference. The debasement of the dollar and the rise of the East are NOT obstacles to this plan.  Rather, they are required factors. There can be no truly global economic system without “harmonization”, the demise of the dollar's world reserve status, and the end of sovereign economic governance.

For those who doubt this scenario, read Paul Volcker’s latest statement, as reported by Zero Hedge.

Volcker, the same man who was directly involved in the destruction of the first Bretton Woods agreement and the final death rattle of the gold standard, is now promoting a NEW Bretton Woods-style agreement in which currencies are pegged to a controlled market system — in essence, a centralized international monetary system. Volcker also suggests that a single nation-based reserve currency like the dollar may be a danger to overall fiscal health.

Volcker is right. The dollar-dominated forex casino and fiat fraud is a danger to the world. Volcker helped make it that way! And what a surprise, the former Federal Reserve chairman has a solution on a silver platter for the American people — all we need is GLOBAL centralization and bureaucratic oversight.

The propaganda is being carefully planted within the mainstream. Christine Lagarde of the IMF now spends the whole of her media interviews inserting the phrase “global economic reset” without explaining exactly what that would entail, while central banking elites like Volcker suggest a Bretton Woods II conference leading to a global monetary authority. In the meantime, Russian government-funded media outlets like RT produce pieces accusing the U.S. of being a nuclear menace while we Americans get to watch manipulative Hollywood films like “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit,” which depicts a Russian plot to collapse the U.S. economy.  China and U.S. representatives squabble with each other at geopolitical meetings fueling fears of diplomatic breakdown, while the Pentagon "suggests" they may have to revamp their military strategies in consideration of yet another World War.  Just as in Orwell's book, 1984, old enemies become allies and then enemies once again, and at the top of the pyramid, it's all a farce.

The best lies contain elements of truth. The truth here is that the East is forming alliances in opposition to the West, the West is involved in underhanded covert operations all over the planet, and both “sides” are in fact on the verge of a catastrophic battle for supremacy. The great lie is that important details have been left out of our little story. Both sides are merely puppet pieces in a grand game of global chess, and any conflict will ultimately benefit the small group of men standing over the board. They include the international financiers who have influenced the very policy fabric of each government toward a climactic crisis which they hope will finally give them the “New World Order” they have always dreamed of.

Not if a bunch of red necks in Texas join up with likeminded people, break away from the USA when the fiat dies, and charge gold for their oil from the tribe.

The only thing holding this back is the east and west coast still have the manufacturing capability to quash a Texas exit.  That is changing, when the fiat dies so do those east and west coast ports of entry.  The longer the silence the better chance for independence.

Timing is everything.

I'm reminded of this quote whether it is accurate or not...

"A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the majority discovers it can vote itself largess out of the public treasury. After that, the majority always votes for the candidate promising the most benefits with the result the democracy collapses because of the loose fiscal policy ensuing, always to be followed by a dictatorship, then a monarchy."

The sheeple believe in the system and this is the only way to they can get a piece albiet little from it.

Hey El Orgonian, Deserved of lies? Can you lie to a horse? Can you fib to a hog? Should you feel bad if you deceive a machine? That's what those in 'power' are thinking. If the conditions set forth includes total truth not be said, is it really unwise choice that your tongue becomes forked? If under the threat of having your life turned off, they require you to lie so they can keep their belief system intact, is it your obligation to provide the deception they demand? And what if this deception happens to benefit yourself? Is it true that the people are the ones responsible? Is it they who demanded their own subjection? Are you hesitant to answer? I know you're not. Is it ok to violate their ‘freewill’? Or do you assume ‘they’ have no freewill? Do you think many here can avoid coming to a conclusion? You came to the correct one.

Flakmeaster - Yeah thats why China as the new reserve currency is stacking gold, because it is irrelevent. The world is returning to the gold standard. 80 year model of reserve currency. 40 asset based, 40 liquidity driven. If you don't know who the sucker is it is YOU. No worries, 99% of investors don't get it either. They have been misled to believe America fucked up and whooops we lost the reserve currency!!!

This article is 100% on. What happens though is one nation will betray another. It is unwise to speak who even if I have a good educated theory. There is very little preventing the world burning and 1/3 dying now including some of the worlds rules. However, how it gets rebuilt is better to remain a bit of silence on. I am just a peon that was forced to learn how the world works. I didnt win the vagina lottery in connections but I was fortunate I was built with a brain. People like me are not welcome in American any longer. My kind problem solves and innovates. The global bankers will force your investment east. That is why our politicians also act retarded. It is Kubaki theatre. They are not stupid. They just want to continue enjoying themselves at your expense. Even if you DIE. Most people on earth are decent people so they have a hard time believing that evil runs in cycles and that at times the best you can do is get out of the way.

Don't pick sides. I have said this most often of any commentary over the last couple years. If you live by the sword in this cycle be prepared to die by it and I am not just referring to the military. That is awful and cryptic to say. On the other hand, I invest as if the world has only minor hiccups. Focusing on fear alone makes life not worth living even if any one of us comes to a grisly end. We all die in the end that is just how it goes. Its like aroman times again and they had a good slogan about the best and worst of empire "eat, drink and be merry for tomorrow we die."

I love you all of you even the spooks. I would have made a good intelligence officer. I know my shit stinks too but I am man enough to admit it.

We'd like to believe that most of what we know is accurate and that if presented with facts to prove we're wrong, we would sheepishly accept the truth and change our views accordingly.

A new body of research out of the University of Michigan suggests that's not what happens, that we base our opinions on beliefs and when presented with contradictory facts, we adhere to our original belief even more strongly.

The phenomenon is called backfire, and it plays an especially important role in how we shape and solidify our beliefs on immigration, the president's place of birth, welfare and other highly partisan issues.

Fair cop mate...

Thermate is a variation of thermite and is an incendiary pyrotechnic composition that can generate short bursts of very high temperatures focused on a small area for a short period of time.

In addition to thermite, thermate also contains sulfur and sometimes barium nitrate, both of which increase its thermal effect, create flame in burning, and significantly reduce the ignition temperature.

Not to be confused with thermite.

Thermite is a pyrotechnic composition of metal powder fuel and metal oxide. When ignited by heat, thermite undergoes an exothermic oxidation-reduction reaction. Most varieties are not explosive but can create brief bursts of high temperature in a small area.

Nmew - I agree. I can say here over and over since 2011 that achina becoming the reserve currency is a feature, not a bug. Then I point out the IMF article two months ago saying China is the defacto reserve currency. Still, all kinds of theories here. ZH told you. Thanks friends, you saveificed much in the beginning. Ya you realize comrpomise with capital is inevitable but your doing good with the boundries to still emulate and broadcast truth.

I try to educate because I want my countrymen to prosper; not vanity not to be a fund manager or sell a newsletter. But I realized the info is for a tiny minority. Those with an ear. No matter how bad it gets, this cycle will end and the next looks amazing with medical tech and quantum physics. I wish to see that cycle. Maybe I will maybe I won't but I had an adventurous life. I am living proof a sociopath can reform (damn it still isnt easy).

The NWO is a short term worry, i.e. they might do something that causes the US and Russia to have a not so friendly exchange of Topol-Ms and Minute Men.  Aside from that, 7 billion people are a bit too much for a small group of bankers to control, and when oil gets even more scarce, they're going to have a helluva time sending an aircraft my way with a bomb because I won't comply with their wishes.  Control takes energy, and the bigger the territory, the more energy it takes.  It is clear that international bankers are not physicists and petrolium engineers.

The new currency has already arrived and it's called debt. It is now the common denominator amongst all individuals whether it be by way of home loan, student loan or credit card.

Currency in the form of money is already sidelined and limited to the size of one's paypacket simply to enable the functioning of the system. Few have cash in real form and even fewer have any real holdings of silver and gold.

I do not believe the people at the top of the pyramid are as united in purpose as we suspect. The elite are jockeying for position among themselves.

I believe there are both good and bad "rogue" elements at all levels which will complicate the process as we move to the next phase.

Above all, I suspect that nature, either through a catastrophic event or a pandemic will throw a huge spanner into the works at some point.

The one thing I am sure of at the moment is that evil is ahead of good. The reason I say this is because all change seems to be effected through and arising from confrontation whether it be war, surveillance, the economic crushing of nations and people etc.

For those of us who carry memories of happy childhoods in better days, it will be both a blessing and a curse as we move forward.

It's getting so obvious that shit's going to come apart that, when I started talking about gardening with the receptionist at my dentist, and she started talking about her garden and how much more expensive it has become for her and her husband to purchase a steer to raise and slaughter.  Next time I go in, I am supposed to bring her some Navajo Blue Corn seed.  We've had a grasshopper infestation - they literally show up on the weather radar when they all take flight - and we were both commiserating about our chile plants getting eaten.  (Cocksucking grasshoppers fucking with the chile, and if you're from NM, you know that's a bad thing to do.)  And this is far from the first conversation I've had like that with random people.

I'd like to quote pages 254-5 from "The Dispensable Nation"  c.2013 by Vali Nasr

"Zbigniew Brzezinski writes that America has palyed a critical balancing role in East Asia, fostering peace and prosperity by maintaining a delicate balance between China and its neighbors. But it is not just in Asia that America has kept the balance. In the Middle (ME) East, too, America has played a balancing role, between Iran and its neighbors on one side of the region, and Israel and its neighbors on the other. Without American engagement the region would have to arrive at its own balance, and that will be a violent and destabilizing process. Without American leadership in the ME, the regions future, left to China and Russia to figure out, or to Turkey, Iran, and Saudi Arabia to fight over, will not be hopeful.

The political scientist John Ikenberry lauds the liberal international order America has built. The global order is today durable and stable thanks to many multinational mechanisims America helped build and continues to support: institutions such as the UN, the World Bank, and NATO that have fostered security and development, or the EU and NAFTA, which have promoted prosperity and lured the likes of Mexico and Turkey to embrace capitalism and democracy.

America has lost some of its own authority to international (Int'l.)  institutions it created and sustained. But that is a good thing. It means that the liberal int'l order has legs; it will last longer and continue to define the world order around values and practices that will foster peace, freedom, and prosperity. As Ikenberry notes; '" The underlying foundation of the liberal int'l order will survive and thrive"' without America's guiding hand. In the ME, though, where simmering instability threatens global security and prosperity. America has done very little institution building of the kind Ikenberry writes about. There is no equivalent to ASEAN or APEC, or rival to the SCO, which is backed by China, Russia, and Iran. Perhaps America should help create those kinds of institutions, which could foster order but also make the region's security and properity less dependent on the exercise of American authority. Only then should America think about pivoting somewhere else."       End Quote

This book by Nasr is an excellent read. jmo

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Ikenberry         http://www.foreignaffairs.com/author/g-john-ikenberry            ?!?    

Ps.       Brezezinski/ Kissinger are so fucking old ... they're beyond the cold-war with cadres of neo-cons working hand-in-hand with a Rothschild/Rockefeller agenda.

Of course! The system is designed to DESTABILIZE satellite nations in order to make them easier to exploit in a capitalist system.
Smedley Butler and the partitioning of the British Empire have showed us this quite clearly.

Vali Nasr writes basically for, and about the Middle East. The reason for the quote was to show how  anachronistic and compartmentalized these guys are regarding geopolitical/ historiographic analysis when pigeonholed at foggy-bottom!?!

His 'POV's' are credible and noteworthy regarding the best of contemporary writers... being unbiased with many pragmatic, and viable solutions in today's volatile ME.  again jmo

The Power Elite, recent power structure research suggests an ideal-type model of four concentric circles: In the inner circle, we find the global money trust, the richest individuals, families or clans, all with fortunes well above one billion Euros. The CEOs of big transnational corporations and biggest international financial players make up the second circle. They are mostly concerned with increasing the wealth of the inner circle, and with it their own. Top international politicians, some active in governments and international institutions, some more in the background as advisers, plus the top military, compose the third circle. This political class has assignments: organize the distribution of the social product in such a way as to transfer as much as the actual power balance allows into the pockets of the inner and second circles, and secure the legitimacy of government by organizing the political circus of an allegedly pluralistic structure. The fourth ring will be composed of top academics, media moguls, lawyers, and may sometimes include prominent authors, film and music stars, artists, NGO representatives, few religious leaders, few top criminals and others useful for decorating the inner circles. They enjoy the privilege of close access to those in power, they are well paid and will make sure not to lose such benefits

So why did Putin not stand aside and allow the vodka head Yeltsin to continue giving away Russia?

Why did he jail Khordakovsky?

Why did Berezovsky have to flee to Britain?

Why was Putin snuggling up to them and then jailing them after coming to power?

Why have there been at least 6 attempts on his life that we know of?

Why did he revamp the Russian military?

Why does the pyramid now say he betrayed the NWO?

When he says they need a new world currency is he talking about the ruble? That will work for Russia

Why did he not just let Georgia shoot up anybody they wanted?

He came up through the FSB and fooled the oligarchs, is he trying to fool the IMF now?

It seems stories such as the above are meant as a message, just give up, the IMF has triumphed. Move on nothing to see. No doubt the United States is to be rewilded under agenda 21. It takes too much oil to feed so many people who are considered useless eaters and no longer necessary. Many of the energy, gas and oil lines cross the Mississippi River (New Madrid Fault zone) if it goes as it does every 200 years, they say the explosion could be seen from space. It went in 1817 and is overdue. There wll be no energy to transport radioactive food.

Far from having suffered the major loss of prestige that Kissinger said he would, Putin basks in the glow of global admiration.

 

Mr. Brandon Smith is also wrong about the cohesive collusion amoung the global filthy rich toward the US financial hegemon as demonstrated by the giant gold drain from West to East, and the construction of the alternative BRICS international gold-backed trade platform rising up to challenge the NWO.

Disturbing post. Centralized slavery versus decentralized freedom is as usual the core issue. Our hero Vlad might indeed be bad and a Hegelian player. Writers who warn of this on ZH are unpopular but its the little details that indicate the direction and Brandon brings up salient points. Evil is well ahead of good in this world and very well organized and it seems we are in for some very shitty times ahead. The end goal is a mercantilist, feudalist, fascist hybrid global economic system supported by fiat currencies with super Orwellian spying to tamp down any underground economic circumvention of the wealth harvest and possible rebellion. PM's and cryptocurrencies will be imprisonable offences and comments like this one will be deemed terrorist or some other buzzword. We will have to use barter currencies like they do in prisons, cigarettes and drugs, or handfuls of wheat maybe, to do a little independent business? "Private" property will be feudal style, it already practically is. Good will be bad and bad will be good. These fuckers are going to pull it off, free minded individuals are no match for them. It really looks to be shaping up like the The Protocols of the Elders of Zion says, even though that book is probably a forgery it really is a fascinating and chilling read in a similar vein to Machiavelli's "The Prince" and when compared to what is happening looks accurately predictive. Anyway I'll at least keep trying to find the truth and ZH helps with that.

Well, everybody knows that there is a global capitalist bourgeoisie. As a class, they have many interests in common.

But that doesn't mean that there aren't real conflicts between groups within that class.

Look at Roman history. Boni and Populares would both gladly slaughter and enslave Gauls. Both Boni and Populares are groups of rich landholding Romans. Nevertheless the Boni and Populares rejoiced in murdering one another. Their shared class interests were real. But their factional rancours were no less real.

Today's globalist neoliberal bourgeoisie can all agree that the world and everything and everybody in it must be completely dominated by finance capital, forever and ever, amen, bwahaha, etc. Okay, so far it's all harmony and concord on Planet Capitalist.

But many of those global bourgeois nevertheless face a critical question. Who among them are the ones who are gonna be the real globalist capitalist overclass, and who are gonna end up as the second-rate compradore loser punks?

Global Capitalism is not yet sufficiently mature that the bourgeois class identity fully trumps all other self-identities among various parts of the bourgeoisie. In particular, residual nationalism still characterizes certain factions of the global bourgeoisie.

Ah, the joy and delight of contradictions! Which factions' offerings on the smoking altar will prove most pleasing to Mammon? Stay tuned, my dear proles.

from the perspective of the bourgeois classes, there is a lot of fight among factions, and again "them" above, the oligarchs

among the oligarchs, it's dog eats dog, as always

and the bourgeois like their clubs, which are the only tested way in history to keep the oligarchy in check

which makes both oligarchs and "proles" the enemies of the bourgeois clubs

Today a big topic is the huge growth in inequality. Those who look closely understand that it is not the 1% at the top stealing the icing off the cake, but the much smaller .1% or .01% that are skewing the numbers and overreaching.

I contend this goes hand in hand with the massive growth in crony capitalism and corruption. Much of this can be attributed to the ability of those in control "changing the rules" and positioning themselves to benefit at every corner. In our busy and complex world we have found it impossible to watch all the moving parts. More on this subject in the article below.

AWESOME ARTICEL!!!  Thank you Brandon,

Having read as many of the comments as I could before going blind, I would like to chime in.  Yes, this is an execllent description of the nefarious plans of the .0001% that consider themselves the puppetmasters, and no No NO, things will not turn out as planned by them... they never do.

There are a quarter of a billion people on this planet that will not bend to their will.  We are not alone, my dear friends.  There are people all over the world that are quietly making their plans to survive this coming conflagration.  The Hegemons think they can "engineer this collapse".  Nothing can be farther from the truth.  This coming event is much much bigger than their pathetic ambitions.  In order to understand this fully, you must examine the standard population curve and understand that it applies equally to the rise of technology.  Mankind stands on a razors edge.  On one side is the stars and on the other  is oblivion.  These vermin at the top that shit golden stools are inconsequential. 

The survivors of the coming conflagration will decide the future and we will be a lot less forgiving of these fearful and greedy people that have repeatedly insulted us throughtout history.

Me, I'm looking for a renaissance of epic proportions and then the Singularity,

You guys are all amazing,

;-D

The only point that I would add is that this is not the behavior of a New World Order, but and extension of the old world order. Still, it's cool, even the prospect or likelihood of a single world currency which also means One World Government.

Why? Because, toppling a one-legged table is far easier than toppling a table with multiple legs/governments/currencies; hence the misinformation and disinformation spreading fear of the term, New World Order.

 

The key to establishing a REAL NEW WORLD ORDER of Equality is to do so from the ground up, each one taking responsibility as he or she is able in relationships of equality to one another, thus uniting to bypass the current elite and enter into a real New World Order of Equality.

New world order of equality?

Imagine about 30 or 40 haha's as I'm not going to type them out.

"....each one taking responsibility as he or she is able in relationships of equality to one another, thus uniting to bypass the current elite and enter into a real New World Order of Equality".

This word equality you keep using, I do not think it means what you think it means.

amazing views, both in article and comments. re "The call on both sides for a new monetary system and the end of the dollar as world reserve seems to greatly contradict the fantasy that the East and West are fundamentally at odds."

eh? it's fundamentally not in the interest of the US to see an end to the dollar as global reserve currency. on the other side, a global reserve currency is... managed by others

crazy? think about that: Bretton Woods was a simple affair. Uncle Sam approached the europeans and proposed to use as currency reserve dollars instead of gold

why? well, the idea behind it was that dollars were already backed by gold, and by the power of the strongest nation, the victor of WWII. dollars were "as good as gold"

and so, even after August 1971, nearly all national banks of the world used dollars as a currency reserve. even Russia/the Soviet Union, what was commonly called the eurodollar

and the FED? does the FED accumulate foreign reserves? no. it's the only central bank that does not. the only thing that the FED has in order to buy back excess dollars is... gold

so again, the current system is, at the end, supported by others. and those others are grumbling, louder

fundamentally, China and Russia would be fine with a global SDR scheme, but not if their shares of the IMF continue to be so small. so they want more shares of the IMF, which would be welcome to them even if no SDR scheme was enacted (which is anyway quite a contingency plan / fantasy, at the moment), the IMF being a power for itself, the "doctor of the sovereigns"

yet the US Congress is opposed to any change in the current IMF shareholding setup. it's that simple, and without using all this "NWO jargon", which I presume is only a way to oversimplify the situation for local US consumption

the key is foreign currency reserves. gold was exchanged with dollars, and too many dollars have been printed, lately, with their foreign holders grumbling

the lie in this tale is admitted by the author. the dollar was the world currency. the world worked fine with it until the fed started abusing the siegnorage the dollar afforded them. the dollar WAS the world currency and a new currency must be created in order to bail out the abused dollar. there is obviously conflict in the new arrangement as one side collects gold obviously in preperation for something(what?) and the other side dismisses it. is that the real source of conflict? the structure of the new currency? full faith and credit(tally sticks?) or full faith and gold, oil, copper......? 

the one cogent lesson from the tower of babel story is a diversified world is a better model than a one world model, no matter how utopian or even practical the idea may look. all this means war and the outcome is rather obvious. the torch will be passed and the new leader will be the old leader, china with its sidekick russia's(eurasia alliance) petro. while the .1% dream of corporate states(there will always be some collection of people claiming some sovereignty. it is proven human nature) as a governing unit the people may not cooperate willingly to become citizens of the world and a "citizen" of the ibm(or mcdonalds or walmart or goldman sachs) group. bankers will become the overlord states. same as it ever was.

the only thing the plan will destructively accomplish is a short term solution to population density issues and the offiicial anointing of the china century.

This dovetails with my thoughts that at the first sign of major problems those in power will play the new currency card! We  are all interconnected for better or worse. A bad apple can spoil the whole basket. Welcome to the world our leaders have designed or allowed to form. Whether by design or merely as a byproduct of globalization we have weaved a web of financial transactions that circle the globe.

Over the last several years as money was printed by the central Banks it was not contained in the countries where in was printed. This money flowed across borders influencing and distorting markets and prices across the world. Some people have been calling for a "world currency" for years. the saying "one should never let a good crisis go to waste" means that a meltdown with high levels of fear would present a perfect opportunity and catalyst to advance this agenda down the field. Remember many people with agendas have a lot to gain when a major shift in the currency markets takes place. More on this subject in the article below.

It comes down to whether gold or the IMFs SDR will be the new global currency.  The global elite's power is based on fiat currency like the dollar, Euro and Yen affording them unlimited money to conjure wars, depressions ect.  Gold keeps everyone in line and according to economist Mike Maloney, there have been 389 fiat currencies destroyed through debasement in history and this forms the basis of his Seven Stages of Fiat Currency videos that show that debased currencies inevitably return to genuine gold and silver back to stage one.

That appears to be happening with the BRICS accumulating gold for a return to stage one - genuine money.  To suggest that they would accept another useless fiat currency like the SDRs at a time when the BRICS are sick of being exploited by fiat currencies is a stretch. 

While Goldman's Lloyd Blankfein may be an investment advisor to the Russian Prime Minister as your linked Bloomberg article suggests, is just to attract foreign investment from western sources and doesn't necessarily represent a controlling mechanism by the IMFs league of western corrupt bankers.

Maybe I'm just preferring to believe that the BRICS led by Russia and China represent a rebellion against the fiat currency-based western corrupt bankers, but it comes down to gold vs IMFs SDRs and if history is any guide, I'm betting on gold.  Furthermore economist Jim Willie has been describing the development of 80 economies joining with the BRICS, known as the BRICS and associates, who are developing gold-backed currencies for menbership and this on top of the 23 bi-lateral trade agreements China has made to facilitate trade outside the dollar or any other third party middleman reserve currency.  This also raises the question, why have a third party middleman reserve currency at all. 

In a world of increased communication, a reserve currency appears to be a relic of the past so I believe we're going to see from the BRICs the elimination of the useless reserve currency and the return of genuine money like gold and silver.  These two developments will finally place a stake in the heart of the western corrupt bankers.  Their final demise will be the confiscation of their ill-gotten gold they stole from the Vatican and banker scams over the centuries.  When the masses get done with them after this next fiat meltdown, they will be lucky to escape with their lives.
