The Implosion Of American Culture

Submittted by JC Collins of The Philosphy of Metrics, via Alt-Market blog,

It was widely expressed by the mainstream media of the time that the collapse of the Soviet Union and the fall of the Berlin Wall could not have been predicted. In hindsight, the stagnation and drop in oil prices should have been the obvious signs that a dramatic change was coming. And when the USSR began to borrow from western banks, the fix was in.

Western banks is something of a misnomer, as no bank, or conglomerate of banking interests, can exist separate and independent of the larger international banking structure which has been built throughout the the 20th Century. Stagnate growth and the deflationary oil prices which began in 1986 acted as fine toothed methods of transferring wealth from the social trust within the Soviet Union, forcing banks within the USSR to borrow from western banks, which was in fact an exchange of assets amongst financial institutions.

The inevitable policy shifts towards “perestroika” were obvious and planned well in advance.  The agricultural crisis within the country was designed to parallel the mass movement towards “glasnost”, or openness.

When we consider the larger mandates of the CSI, Cultural and Socioeconomic Interception, the same machinations as “perestroika” and ‘glasnost” can be observed in the social fragmentation and devolution of the American middle class. Where the Soviet Union enacted policies which instigated the CSI changes within the country, it will be Americas lack of enacting policy change which will precipitate the implosion of its culture.

See post The First False Flags for a further understanding of what is meant by the term CSI, or Cultural and Socioeconomic Interception.

To understand what this means we must consider the expansion of American culture around the globe since 1944, which was the year the USD became the primary reserve currency used in global trade. As use of the dollar increased, so did the acceptance of western culture.  Everything from McDonald’s burgers to Hollywood creations were exported around the world.

America has followed the Soviet Union down the path of re-engineering its ideological culture. Russia has no more moved towards democracy than America has moved towards Communism.  Both have shifted towards a new socialist middle ground where centralization has woven the macro economic system tighter around a supra-sovereign statehood.

The Cold War was the dialectic conditioning of the whole world.

Over the last few years we have begun to see once stable American institutions and companies begin to struggle.  McDonalds growth has begun to slow and Sears, along with other big box stores, have been closing.  Even legendary director Steven Spielberg has suggested that Hollywood will “implode” soon.

As use of the dollar levels off and begins to recede into the blend of multilateral currencies, the culture that grew up around it will also recede and implode back into the place from where it originated.

This implosion of culture can be seen in the recent racial and political divide which has been given focus in the riots and protests across the country.  The media is doing its part to push the CSI engineering into the homes and minds of the disorganized masses.  Many speculate that the riots have failed to spread as desired, but I reckon that they were extremely successful in that they leveled up the tension and pre-prejudice for a continuation of the slow motion implosion and transition to the international mindset collective.

The Black Friday madness is blown larger for maximum effect and the greed of America is the subconscious message which is being implanted in minds around the world.  This message is trended throughout mainstream media, alternative media, and social media.

The other side of this CSI engineering is instability. Both greed and instability have now begun to feed from the tail of the other as American culture descends into the unknown bounds of ignorance. Political leaders and the political process has become so degraded that even Americans themselves are now looking towards figures like Russia’s Putin for inspiration. This is no doubt by design as it slowly dawns on the American people that they have become the “isolated” contagion from which the rest of the world is attempting to vaccinate itself against.

Yet, nowhere are the masses being informed and educated about the reality of economics and politics, let alone about the decay of culture and self.  The media is proactively avoiding any meaningful truth and facts about the state of existence for the majority of the population. What is obvious subconsciously is ignored consciously in everyday thoughts and actions.

From this engineered ignorance the surprise of a “fall of the Berlin Wall moment” will emerge and crawl across the face of the western man.

The spread of greed is apparent and now the deeper injection of instability will continue to build on the economic CSI which began in 2008.  Central banks around the world and the Bank for International Settlements have already begun to implant the meme that they can no longer provide liquidity in the next crisis.  See the post The Enlargement of the Dialectic Collapse.

Across the globe the message is being promoted that America is holding up the much needed reform of the international monetary system, reforms which will “prevent and strengthen the global economy against future liquidity and credit shocks as well as exchange rate instability”.

In November of 2010 the G20 countries along with the International Monetary Fund agreed to reforming the international system.  These reforms have been held up in the US Congress since and the message is being sent that the rest of the world is becoming impatient and tired of the American games.

It is beginning to look likely that the the IMF Reforms were never meant to be passed and enacted as written back in 2010. As such, the IMF along with the BRICS countries and other G20 members, have devised methods of bypassing America and implementing and even broader reform of the institution.  This Plan B implementation will build on the meme of “American greed and instability” in order to create acceptance of a reformed system which has stripped the US of its veto power on the IMF Executive Board, as well double the actual quota commitment from member countries.

Reader Matt McBride has provided a link which explains in great detail the Plan B components and how they will likely be implemented in the coming months.  I would strongly encourage all readers to study the material and fully understand it as the world stands on the threshold of change.

Time for the United States to Risk Its IMF Veto

We are also likely to see some drama in Congress as both political parties attempt to agree on a fiscal budget for 2015. The government shutdown which happened last year has planted the CSI seed for what comes next.  It is being proposed that the Democrats will include the 2010 IMF Reforms in the 2015 Fiscal Bill.  But will the Republicans approve or continue to delay and push the world into the throes of financial collapse?

With the recent drop in oil prices and the inevitable fragmentation of OPEC, the instability theme is being built on so when the time comes the acceptance of oil and other commodities being denominated in SDR’s will not be challenged.  See post The End of OPEC for further reading on the transition of energy markets and the trend of banks exiting the commodities markets.

Now that Saudi Arabian interests have been secured through Chinese bonds, the fragmentation of old “dollar based” structures such as OPEC can begin. Everywhere a dollar based institution has been established will see change as the system transitions and the multilateral emerges.

By July, 2015, the renminbi will be added to the SDR basket composition and from that moment SDR bonds will begin to re-liquify the international financial system. See post Renminbi ??? and the Alternative IMF Reforms.

The current deflation of commodities will be temporary and the new SDR commodities exchange will “correct” the imbalances in the system caused by American greed and the USD instability.

As the QE policies of central banks handled the exchange of low liquidity bonds from charter banks back to the balance sheets of the central banks themselves, the SDR bond system will orchestrate a sort of QE in reverse as the central banks exchange the low liquidity assets on their balance sheets for SDR assets, which will be considered high liquidity assets.

As well as the posts Something SDR This Way Comes – Deflation and Liquidity for the MFS. and The Old Economics of Devonian Water – How Current Debt Transforms Into SDR Liquidity.

The complete machinations of this multilateral transition is obscured to the disorganized masses through complete misdirection and propaganda of American privilege and greatness.  Such will be the surprise when the implosion of American culture reaches a tipping point where the multilateral financial system is fully enacted on the ruins of western CSI engineered ignorance.

They will say no one saw it coming.  But there are those of us across the internet, on blogs just like this one, who have seen it coming and have been talking about it for a long time.  The exact details of every point of transition and interception is not easily discerned, but the overall macro trend is clear and there are a few moments of sudden adjustments coming.  The sad reality is that the disorganized masses will remain ignorant to the whole process as they become consumed with television news drama that hides the structural truth behind the engineered cultural implosion of the American identity.

And, since greed is the driving force, theres only one
bubble left after big oil,
and that's Big War.

Incidentally, what better way can the MSM be able to ressurect itself?

The concept of greed is so easily misunderstood. The problem is high time preference.

Good thing the Republicans took congress and have managed to pass legislation  to insure 300 trillion dollars worth of derivatives held by bankers. We'll be back on course in no time. USA! USA!

They are just champagne socialists too.

amerikan, french, soviet...who gives a fuck about a national culture, which shackles free thought and expression.  i follow the culture of nature, that life inducing life promoting orgone all around us. it has no race, no ethnic, no mores, no boundaries, and above all, no rules.  just love and enlightenment and spirit.

Nature is cruel. Love is a human trait.

The problem with the above article is the (lack of) understanding of ideologies. It's called fascism (not socialism).

I fucking hate Putin as much as Obama as much as every other turd with nuclear shit. Pussies.

Besides being a complete MOE-ron, you've never set foot in Nature or you would know she's a real bitch at times

And Nature's rules are harsh and indifferent even to know nothing idiots like you.

Why all the downvotes to gold-is-not-dead?

I love when Putin pokes Obie in the eye but he's still an Oligarch and authoritarian...

nature is benevolent, headbanger (perfect handle, btw). she will even toss a few pearls to swine like yourself. if you stop grunting for a moment and look around.

It's fairly obvious, for anyone who can see past the end of their nose, that religious beliefs have been used to segregate the masses.  Said segregation creates false divisions.

Now, I could include the Jews and the Christians and the Buddhists and the Methodists and Baptists- and know with relative certainty that they're all full of shit.

You either have a personal relationship with your maker, or you don't.

Religion ain't got nothing to do with it.

acetinker's picture

Dang, dude!  Up 'til now I would've advised you against banging your head on inanimate objects. Just now, I advocate that you imitate your avatar.

The reason you think nature is a bitch is because you never really knew her, fucktard!

Time doesn't heal wounds, it is time that allows humans to heal from wounds.

On a personal note, my dear wife had a bunion removed last thursday.  Today, we went for the follow-up visit.

She's kinda fucked up.  We went back for a check-up today, and all seems good... but I'm tellin' ya' that it looks real different from this side.

I'm payin' the income taxes that barely cover the interest on the national debt.  My wife's recent procedure was ultimately funded by the national debt, via the fedgov, and the state of georgia, but all of these idiots borrowed every dollar they ever spent.

Hunh.  If this procedure proves succesful, she needs to get the other foot done before this doctor retires.

Did I tell ya' that my wife is an employee of .gov?

That might clear things up.

more evidence that humans are cruel.  love is a trait of nature, the vast majority if its killings are just for a meal.

Not that a lot of the current Republicans aren't to blame for the passage, but the newly elected Congress has NOT been sworn in yet.  The Dems were still in charge of the Senate when this was passed.  And by the way, the sponsor of the bill was Jim Hines.  


Unsurprisingly, the main backer of the bill is notorious Wall Street lackey Jim Himes (D-Conn.), a former Goldman Sachs employee who has discovered lobbyist payoffs can be just as lucrative as a career in financial services.

More on the former Squid:


"Representative Jim Himes first caught our attention when he helped push through a bill written by CitiGroup lobbyists. As it just so happens, CitiGroup is also Rep. Himes’ #1 financial backer"


"Himes co-sponsored and helped push a bill called H.R. 992 through the House. 992 would further deregulate derivatives, a financial instrument that played a major role in the 2008 crisis (source)."

"Good thing the Republicans took congress ..."

Just because they call themselves "Republicans" doesn't mean that you have to believe that they're really Republicans.

Oh regional Indian's picture

Bollywood is imposed culture, hardly Indian. FWIW, the first famous "actresses" in bollywood of the early 20th century were all jewesses. that a tell of some sort?

We are all victims of the same cultural virus of denigration and degeneration spawned by people with jewish last names.

Family Guy? Really, I thought the bottom had been scraped with South Park...

So, yes...there you go...


DJ Happy Ending's picture

South Park and Beavis & Butthead are high culture compared to reality tv and tmz.

Oh regional Indian's picture

12 years sans TeeVee have been good for me....

I've watched 5 or 6 movies in theaters in the past 14 years.

One can choose one's vibratory level of existance. In a world created of and by vibration, your vibration is your reality.

Been very cleansing....even those who say they watch just because they want to see what the "other side" is up to are up against the most powerful weapon of mind control devised.

If you have a TeeVee, you ARE living in 1984, just suck up and deal with that fact...

Movie theaters are just a bigger, louder extension of the same. I have to cover my ears in one now, the audio assault is so bad and cuts so schizoid...

You are the way forward...I suspect 7 billion other sheep don't agree though.

TV is shit and so is Zollywood and Bollywood.  Brainwashing for the sheep masses.

Magooo's picture

No TV for 6 years - and barely watched it before that.


I do watch a few series which i download e.g. mad men, breaking bad, game of thrones.


The poison on tv is the 'news'.  reality tv is just rubbish and a total waste of time

Those guys (B&B) were modern day prophets compared to what we have been grandfathered into today.

Between Beavis & Butthead and Idiocracy, Mike Judge is indeed a prophet.

The recent season of Beavis & Butthead where they review reality tv shows is great stuff.

The merikan culture is mostly jelly after 3 generations, but God is not Dead in the US, Brother.  He is stronger than ever.

Billy the Poet's picture

God is dead. Unfortunately he was the vehicle for morality and society seems to have thrown out the baby with the baptismal water. There was a woman who suggested that each individual should use reason to determine their own values but apparently sheep of most theistic and atheistic stripes want a shepherd in some shape or form.

Harbanger's picture

If the woman you speak of ever had reason in mind, we who study history would know it and she would have left an example to follow.  I't's a figment of the imagination.  Man however, has forever been searching for a good leader.  You want a King to make things right and fair, then you get a King.  Few have the wisdom to live without a wordly leader.

Billy the Poet's picture

There are many individuals who live moral lives based on rational thinking. Can you name any individual who has manged to act morally by following a path based entirely on irrationality? Even God's morality has a foundation in rational thought. Otherwise it could not function even sporadically no matter what spells the practitioners might utter or what rituals in which they might engage.

Harbanger's picture

I've been around the same block too many times to care.  If you think it works for you and you don't hurt anyone, then just do it, and do it hard.  I'm no saint bro, I'm here for the war.

There you go being reasonable again. Works for me.

When somebody mugs an old lady in the street we don't smugly say to them, "Well, that was'nt very 'atheist' of you."  It doesn't make sense to say that because everybody understands it is not atypical of what we'd expect.  So I choose door number two.

Australia today, Europe tomorrow, then the US all before we usher in 2015!!!

They'll have us so fucking scared, we'll line up to have the next opportunity to burn the Constitution!!

Save me big daddy government, save me!!!

The funny yet maddening thing about it is, in Australia if two of the 40 in the shop are carrying heat, those jihadists motherfuckers are dead right now, event over!

He posts a ridiculous comment and links to his band.

It is tragic but mostly annoying. He'll be gone in a week but still annoying.
