"30 Seconds To Midnight"

Tyler Durden's picture

Authored by Paul Craig Roberts,

Former US Secretary of Defense William Perry warns that the world is on the knife edge of nuclear catastrophe. Such catastrophe can result accidentally from electronic failures or glitches in warning systems and from the recklessly aggressive and unnecessary force buildup against Russia. Conn Hallinan discusses these issues...

“Today, the danger of some sort of a nuclear catastrophe is greater than it was during the Cold War,” warns William Perry, “and most people are blissfully unaware of this danger.”

 

A former U.S. defense secretary from 1994 to 1997, Perry has been an inside player in the business of nuclear weapons for over 60 years. And his book, My Journey at the Nuclear Brink, is a sober read. It’s also a powerful counterpoint to NATO’s current European strategy, which envisions nuclear weapons as a deterrent to war: The purpose of nukes “is to prevent major war, not to wage wars,” argues the Alliance’s magazine, NATO Review.

 

But as Perry points out, it’s only by chance that the world has avoided a nuclear war — sometimes by nothing more than dumb luck — and, rather than enhancing our security, nukes “now endanger it.”

 

The 1962 Cuban missile crisis is generally represented as a dangerous standoff resolved by sober diplomacy. In fact, it was a single man — Russian submarine commander Vasili Arkhipov — who countermanded orders to launch a nuclear torpedo at an American destroyer that could have set off a full-scale nuclear exchange between the Soviet Union and the United States.

 

There were numerous other incidents that brought the world to the brink. On a quiet morning in November 1979, a NORAD computer reported a full-scale Russian sneak attack with land and sea-based missiles, which led to scrambling U.S. bombers and alerting U.S. missile silos to prepare to launch. But it turned out there was no Soviet attack — just an errant test tape.

 

Lest anyone think the incident was an anomaly, a little more than six months later NORAD computers erroneously announced that Soviet submarines had launched 220 missiles at the United States. This time the cause was a defective chip that cost 49 cents — again resulting in scrambling interceptors and putting the silos on alert.

 

But don’t these examples prove that accidental nuclear war is unlikely? That conclusion is a dangerous illusion, argues Perry, because the price of being mistaken is so high — and because the world is a more dangerous place than it was in 1980.

I doubt Hallinan is correct about Washington’s military predominance. This is Washington’s view, and this view makes Washington confident that it holds the aces. It is a mistake for Hallinan to encourage Washington in this view. Nevertheless, Hallinan makes it clear that we could all be vaporized at any minute. This extremely high risk has been created entirely by the Clinton, George W. Bush, and Obama regimes in which zionist neoconservatives have controlled foreign and military policies.

It is tiresome to hear the argument that nuclear war won’t happen because it makes no sense. William Perry points out that the failure of a 49-cent computer chip resulted in NORAD’s computers signaling that the Soviets had launched 220 nuclear missiles at the United States. Just think about all the failures and glitches in our own personal computers, even the best ones.

Human miscalculation is also an enormous risk. Miscalculation is a dominant human trait. Consider that 50 percent of Americans’ choices of marriage partner are miscalculations as established by the divorce rate.

The mere existence of nuclear weapons means the nonexistence of life on earth. It will happen sooner or later. To raise the risk as the crazed American government is doing with irresponsible provocations of the Russians and Chinese is the ultimate criminal act.

There is no greater threat to human rights than to endanger all life, and that is what Washington and its two-bit punk NATO vassals are doing by increasing tensions between nuclear powers.

The neoconservatives in Washington have replaced nuclear disarmament with a new nuclear arms race. All of the hard work and accomplishments of previous US administrations to ease tensions and to reduce the stockpiles of nuclear weapons has been thrown away by the psychopaths who control the government in Washington.

A nuclear WAR would still be between Russia and the US only. That's why the current conflict with Russia is so DANGEROUS.

Sadly nuclear war and WWIII lay firmly on the table due to the fact our Oligarchs desire to depopulate the earth so the peasants stop using up THEIR resources. They look down and us and think nothing of killing billions of "useless eaters".  Only hope is the "useless eaters" are waking up to this reality.  We shall see.

MalteseFalcon's picture

There is no such thing as nuclear war between the US and Russia only.

That war would lead to the meltdown of every nuclear plant in those two countries at least.

Fukushima times 50 and the end of all life on the planet.

Depopulation is already happening through other means.

THERE WILL BE NO DEPOPULATION CAMPAIGN USING NUCLEAR WAR.

No, not all Life. Just all humans, plus 90% of the rest. But in say 500 million years, earth is teaming with Life, just very different from what it would look like if we are not exterminated.

South Front just published an article stating that the US-based Atlantic Council has published a policy paper which, among other things, advises Poland to arm up with US missile systems and nukes so that Poland could attack the Russian Baltic base at Kaliningrad and send missiles with nukes "deep into Russia".  The reasoning presented is that Poland could delay invading Russian forces long enough for reinforcements to arrive, and that Poland could cause "unacceptable losses" to Russian invading forces.

See https://southfront.org/how-poland-prepares-for-war-with-russia/

At the same time, the Russians are reported to be studying a leaked German Military policy paper that declares Russia to be an enemy of Germany.

The Russians view these policy statements as clear threats of nuclear attack, and have made diplomatic protests.  The US and NATO do not appear to be prepared to tone down their campaign of provocations against Russia, saying that more anti-missile systems will be installed at or near Russia's borders, continuing economic warfare and sanctions, and war games in the Black Sea.  The Russians are becoming increasingly frustrated and nervous.

I am concerned that these sorts of provocations will lead to Russia having a hair-trigger response to any indication of an actual attack.

Your thought is Wrong -

Mount Tambora erupted in 1815, resulting in "the year without a summer" in Europe and the USA. A large volcanic eruption is akin to a debris cloud thrown up by a Hydrogen bomb blast.  Mount Tambora is in the southern hemisphere.

Listen up, fucktard. Pakistan and India are at each others' throats again. Both are nuclear powers. China just launched the world's biggest nuclear armed sub. Iran's already cheating. The North Koreans are too. The Clintons sold off uranium to Russia. We have nukes in fucking Turkey. Keep your nose up Jewish assholes for the rest of your life if you want. You'll miss the center ring action, but you wouldn't know what to do with it if you saw it.

There's money in them thar nukes and even more in war. Jews are not the only people on the planet driven by greed. Sometimes they aren't even necessary for the nasty deals to go down.

certain individuals conspiring to create a nuclear holocaust are going to be very fucking disappointed when the messiah fails to show and they finally discover that religion is the biggest mountain of bullshit that mankind has ever produced. 

It's just a pity that those of us that already realise this won't be around to see the look on their stupid faces.

Religion.  Bullshit.  All well and good- but there's at least an operating system that is kinda fucking obvious to most.

I ain't nobody, but I can't shake the feeling that most of the world's population is under some kinda spell.

How many different belief systems exist today?  I dunno- but there's a shitload; each claiming 'the one true path'.  It strikes me that they can't possibly all be correct, but it's altogether possible that they're all full of shit.

Anyway, lotsa folks here blame the Jews for all our ills.  There's plenty of evidence to support that view, but I think they're just handy scapegoats due to their own inherent proclivities.

Our real enemies hide behind the (admittedly greedy and prone to seek money-for-nothing) Jews.

Our real enemies operate from the Vatican, the City, and DC- the city-states, if you will.

You seem to me an intelligent sort.  If you think I'm fulla shit, please say why.

Experts in manipulation using another front to hide their activities?  Yes you could very well be right, I can't argue with that, but I do get the impression that there is more than a little zealotry involved.

30 seconds to Midnight?

Radical Marijuana's picture

After one includes consideration of the possible effects of future false flag attacks,

then "30 seconds" may well be understating the countdown to death insanities?

My studies into the events on 9/11 have convinced me to agree with Roberts:

"zionist neoconservatives have controlled foreign and military policies"

MASTER OF UNIVERSE's picture

The establishment is frightened, RM. The system has already crashed, and the recovery was a mythology. Deutsche Bank is the next Lehman moment, and World War Three Thermonuclear Hot War is manifesting in the Baltic Sea, offshore China, and in terms of the Bond markets, Dark Pool Derivatives Universe, and all currencies. I agree with Dr. Roberts too, but if he thinks that some sort of reset or dialog with the greater fools is going to help he is nearing retirement IMHO. I guarantee you that nothing can be done to stop World War Three Thermonuclear Hot War because the establishment has run out of Ponzi participants much quicker than they could have ever imagined. They perceived the rigged system as infallible when in fact they did not understand that their interbanking architecture was their weakest link in the chain of the Global Banking Oligopoly. They literally thought that they could hold defaults to 5% in the Financialization schemes they cooked up post World War Two Bretton Woods. The shelf life of the Worldwide Global Banking Ponzi has expired, and they know it all too well now that they have seen the Baltic Dry Index implode, and CAT turn into a bellwether of an extinction level event. The Zionists never knew what hit them March 10th 2008, RM. They had no clue whatsoever, and they still have no clue whatsoever. This is why they are going headlong into WW3.

 

I know exactly what is manifesting with the establishment, and I have been watching them closely for many decades given that I was raised by the 'establishment', and know exactly how they think. Believe me when I state that I am the new establishment that is replacing the old establishment in this present paradigmatic shift away from Ponzi Narco Casino Crony Capitalism. In brief, the brightest minds in the world of Economics are not capable of troubleshooting the Mandelbrot Set that was unleashed on Global Banking March 10th 2008. Mandelbrot understood it, but then he up and died before he could effectively pass on what he knew about the March 10th crash parameters. Bottom line is that the entire system is being brought down via the Second Law of Thermodynamics. And the old establishment is frightened because they don't quite understand that Entropy is a bitch, eh. ;)

Radical Marijuana's picture

I mostly agreed with your reply, MASTER OF UNIVERSE:

Mandelbrot's work regarding financialization was INTERESTING!

Civilization is operating through fractal patterns of organized crime, which manifest self-recursive feedback loops.

As you wrote:

"Bottom line is that the entire system is being brought down via the Second Law of Thermodynamics. And the old establishment is frightened because they don't quite understand that Entropy is a bitch, eh. ;)"

Ironically, those who blame "excessive complexity" as the problem tend to deliberately not engage in deeper analysis regarding complexity of WHAT? Civilization has been driven by progress in physical science and technology to enable SYSTEMS OF LIES BACKED BY VIOLENCE to grow at about an exponential rate. It is the "excessive successfulness" of applying the methods of organized crime to control civilization that is at the root of the relatively more superficial appearances of "excessive complexity." 

Within civilization, the Second Law of Thermodynamics does NOT operate in a linear way. Rather, the overall increasing "entropy" operates through feedback loops, whose self-recursiveness takes on many forms, which basically amount to the ways that the PROFITS FROM FRAUDS ARE REINVESTED IN MORE FRAUDS.

Ironically, the ways that people think about "entropy" itself have been totally inverted through the history of science compromising with the biggest bullies' bullshit world views. An arbitrary minus sign was inserted into the entropy equation of thermodynamics, in order that the relative measurements of power would appear to have relative positive values, rather than relative negative values.

By that I am NOT asserting that the Second Law of Thermodynamics is not correct, but that the ways that people think about That were inverted. Therefore, I regard it as an understatement to merely point out "they don't quite understand that Entropy is a bitch." The ruling classes developed to become so within social systems that were overall still general energy systems. Of course, basic principles and concepts that apply to ALL energy systems also apply to human systems. Generally, systems follow their own path of least resistance, which requires the least action. In human terms, that means society follows the path of least morality. Generally, systems are controlled by their most labile components. In human terms, that means civilization is controlled by the most dishonest and violence people.

Those people (who Roberts labels as "zionist neoconservatives") where selected through human history to become the currently most dominate ruling classes, BECAUSE they were the most dishonest and violent people, who had the least morality. However, that is NOT a static system, but rather, a dynamic system, which continues to have more and more self-recursive feedback loops, such that those ruling classes are becoming increasingly psychotic psychopaths, due to the ways that their previous social successes based upon being able to enforce frauds has resulted in there developing exponentially more fraudulence.

Hence, the deeper issues are not merely due to some superficial notions regarding the entropic problems manifesting through unsustainable "excessive complexity," but rather, we are headed towards those "PONZIE SCHEMES" (as a well-known label for pyramid schemes in general), headed towards final failure due to too much success. Each increment of social success based upon being able to enforce frauds delivers apparent profits to those able to do that. However, overall, the civilization as a whole thereby becomes more fraudulent. Furthermore, due to the prodigious progress in physical science and technology, that self-reinforcing successful fraudulence becomes exponentially more fraudulent.

"... the Worldwide Global Banking Ponzi has expired, and they know it all too well ..."

Since that PONZI SCHEME, of making "money" out of nothing as debts MUST continue to grow at an exponential rate, or else it collapses, and since it is IMPOSSIBLE for there to be endless exponential growth, therefore, necessarily at an exponentially accelerating rate, we collectively approach the limits of those debt slavery systems, developing numbers which have become debt insanities, which numbers can NOT continue to be doubled down on forever.

One of my favourite quotes is the following, which appears in a document which is based upon an attempt to apply understanding electrical energy systems to understanding human social systems:

http://www.conspiracyarchive.com/NWO/silent_weapons_quiet_wars.htm

Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars

"Energy is recognized as the key to all activity on earth. Natural science is the study of the sources and control of natural energy, and social science, theoretically expressed as economics, is the study of the sources and control of social energy. Both are bookkeeping systems: mathematics. Therefore, mathematics is the primary energy science. And the bookkeeper can be king if the public can be kept ignorant of the methodology of the bookkeeping. ... In this structure, credit, presented as a pure element called "currency," has the appearance of capital, but is in effect negative capital. Hence, it has the appearance of service, but is in fact, indebtedness or debt. ... if balanced in no other way, will be balanced by the negation of population (war, genocide)... They must eventually resort to war to balance the account, because war ultimately is merely the act of destroying the creditor ... War is therefore the balancing of the system by killing the true creditors (the public ...)"

It appears that 2007 was the LAST NORMAL YEAR.

Since 2008, it has become more and more painfully obvious that the COLLAPSE DYNAMICS had been engaged ...

What I WISH would happen is that enough people who understand themselves better as manifestations of general energy systems. However, in order to do that, enough people would have to go through series of intellectual scientific revolutions and profound paradigm shifts in the ways that they perceive political problems. (I have been attempting to promote doing that for several decades, only to discover that there are only a tiny minority, of tiny minority, of a tiny minority of people who are currently interested in doing anything like that.)

Overall, what is REALLY happening are the ways that the social pyramid systems are attempting to continue to grow at an exponential rate ... The pyramidion people are becoming increasingly psychotic psychopaths, while those they rule over are mostly becoming increasingly impotent political idiots.

That is how and why it is CORRECT to assert that:

“Today, the danger of some sort of a nuclear catastrophe is greater than it was during the Cold War,” warns William Perry, “and most people are blissfully unaware of this danger.”

It is BECAUSE the ruling classes are becoming increasingly psychotic psychopaths, while those they rule over mostly become more impotent political idiots, that:

"It is tiresome to hear the argument that nuclear war won’t happen because it makes no sense."

The vast majority of people have been taught to think about everything in the most absurdly backward ways possible. There is no significant public opposition that is not controlled to think using the biggest bullies' bullshit languages and philosophy of science. Therefore, there is NO publicly significant opposition to resist "the psychopaths who control the government in Washington."

There is no publicly significant level of understanding of human beings and civilization as manifestations of general energy systems. That is especially the case because doing so requires going through series of intellectual scientific revolutions and profound paradigms shifts, in order to correct the enormous errors which were built into the historically developed structures of the dominate natural languages and philosophy of science, due to the ways that the biggest bullies' bullshit was able to dominate civilization, such that its systems based upon enforcing frauds were able to become exponentially more fraudulent.

The overall predicaments are that political problems continue getting worse, faster, while there is nothing which is publicly significant to respond to that happening other than various controlled opposition groups, which promote bogus "solutions," which continue to be based upon misunderstanding those problems in the most absurdly backward ways. While there is NO DOUBT that: "The neoconservatives in Washington have replaced nuclear disarmament with a new nuclear arms race." Since that IS what is happening, this quote from Albert Einstein continues to become more and more imperatively relevant:

“The unleashed power of the atom has changed everything except our modes of thinking and we thus drift toward unparalleled catastrophe.”

For several decades, I have been attempting to sufficiently change "our modes of thinking," in order to cope with the development of weapons of mass destruction. However, my current conclusions are that civilization is going to commit collective suicide, because we stay trapped inside the entrenched, established systems, whereby the vicious spirals of political funding enforcing frauds continue to become exponentially more fraudulent, while almost nobody, within either the ruling classes, nor those they rule over, are willing and able to change "our modes of thinking."

Those were successfully able to make and maintain the previous systems of paper money frauds, backed by gunpowder weapons, were able to make and maintain globalized systems of electronic monkey money frauds, backed by the threat of force from apes with atomic bombs. Although a small minority of those primates developed better scientific understanding of electrical and atomic energy systems, the vast majority of people are NOT interested in better understanding themselves as manifestations of general energy systems. Rather, we are being collectively driven into the vicious spirals of the enforcement of frauds becoming exponentially more fraudulent, in ways whereby the runaway debt insanities are headed towards provoking death insanities.

While someone like Roberts provides superficially correct analysis of those problems, there is nothing he has done, that I am aware of, which has gone through enough profound paradigm shifts in order to be able to propose and promote how to operate better death control systems, after the development of weapons of mass destruction. Rather, the vast majority of people who engage in superficially correct analysis of those problems continue to promote bogus "solutions" which are absurdly backwards, because they continue to take for granted thinking about everything in absurdly backward ways (such as that they have no critical awareness of how the concept of entropy itself was inverted.)

Therefore, not only is it correct to assert that: "Bottom line is that the entire system is being brought down via the Second Law of Thermodynamics. And the old establishment is frightened because they don't quite understand that Entropy is a bitch." It is also correct that "entropy is a bitch" to a far greater degree, due the ways that almost everyone continues taking for granted misunderstanding entropy in the most absurdly backward ways possible. Not only are the problems with respect to the human murder systems becoming exponentially worse, due to the development of weapons of mass destruction, but also, the vast majority of people (including the controlled opposition groups) have NOT changed their modes of thinking, and are NOT interested in changing their modes of thinking.

At the present time, I can not envision any reasonable hope for the foreseeable finite future of the established civilization, based upon enforcing frauds, in ways which are becoming exponentially more fraudulent. Although I can maintain transcendental hope that the First Law of Thermodynamics, the conservation of energy, will continue working, the ways that civilization currently misunderstands the concept of entropy in the most absurdly backward ways does NOT enable any reasonable hopes that such a civilization can pull out of its vicious spirals of the excessive successfulness of being controlled by the methods of organized crime spinning out of human control.

In my view, the ONLY way that any "new establishment" could work would be if it changed to adapt to the profound paradigm shifts which have already been achieved through mathematical physics. However, that would have to include correcting the series of enormous errors which occurred during the history whereby the philosophy of science was required to compromise with the biggest bullies' bullshit world views, which included inverting the concept of entropy, which was paradoxically consistent with the ways that everything else was perverted, such as how "money" was systematically inverted and perverted, by the triumphs of the banksters' bullshit regarding the ways that the vast majority of people were taught to misunderstand political economy in the most absurdly backward ways possible, due to the long history, for generation after generation, whereby the successful enforcement of frauds became exponentially more fraudulent.

At the present time, there is almost nothing but the central core of organized crime, bankster dominated governments, surrounded by layers of controlled opposition groups, which stay within the same "modes of thinking" originally developed as the banksters' bullshit. At the pinnacle of those currently established systems, the primary pyramidion people are now the "zionist neoconservatives have controlled foreign and military policies," who have operated the murder systems which backed up the money systems.

They ARE headed towards attempting to continue to grow their globalized systems of electronic frauds, backed by the force of nuclear weapons, at the exponentially increasing risk of starting a war using weapons of mass destruction, which could spin out of human control. They ARE that psychotic, because they developed inside of the overall history whereby natural selection pressures drove the development of artificial selections systems based upon the maximum possible deceits and frauds. Thus, there are exponentially increasing INTENSE PARADOXES, which are manifesting as sets of consistent contradictions, due to civilization necessarily operating according to the principles and methods of organized crime, whose excessive successfulness have become runaway criminal insanities.

It is barely possible to exaggerate the degree to which "our modes of thinking" have become as absurdly backward as possible. Therefore, it is extremely difficult to imagine some series of political miracles whereby enough people would change they ways of "thinking," in order to prevent civilization continuing to "drift toward unparalleled catastrophe."

Prodigious progress in mathematical physics has profoundly changed the ways we should think about time and space. Since entropy is the way that energy is distributed in time and space, we should have also profoundly changed the ways we thought about entropy. However, of course, none of that has happened. Rather, politics continues to be dominated by various old-fashioned ideologies and religions, which adamantly refuse to up-date their metaphysics to become more consistent with the advances in mathematical physics. The results are the Grand Canyon Chasms between progress in physical science, without progress in political science, continue to get wider and WIDER. We continue living inside Wonderland Matrix Bizarro Worlds, where almost everyone thinks about almost everything in the most absurdly backwards ways, while that is overall getting worse, faster, rather than sufficiently changing "our modes of thinking."

Therefore, "entropy" has become an astronomically amplified "bitch!"

Technologies which are trillions of times more capable and powerful than ever before in human history are being channeled into political systems based upon enforcing frauds, and therefore, those enforced frauds are becoming many orders of magnitude worse than ever before in previous human history. There now EXIST globalized systems of electronic frauds, backed by atomic bombs, while pretty well nobody is able and willing to go through changing "our modes of thinking" enough to adapt to those now EXISTING.

THE MISMATCH BETWEEN MONKEY AND APES WITH ELECTRONICS AND ATOMIC ENERGY GETS WORSE EVERY DAY!

The first generation to grow up while paper money frauds, backed by gunpowder weapons, became globalized electronic frauds, backed by atomic weapons, is still alive today. By and large the vast majority of them have done nothing to change "our modes of thinking" enough to come to better terms with that happening. Rather, the ONLY publicly significant things which have actually happened were the ways that the ruling classes became increasingly psychotic psychopaths, while those they ruled over became increasingly impotent political idiots.

Therefore, since the American Dollar and American Military became the primary ways that the combined money/murder systems based upon paper frauds, backed by gunpowder weapons, became what now EXISTS, namely globalized electronic monkey money frauds, backed by the threat of force from apes with atomic weapons, those who history enabled them to become the best organized gangs of criminals, who effectively captured control over the American government, ARE as Roberts describes them, namely "zionist neoconservatives have controlled foreign and military policies" who ARE "the psychopaths who control the government in Washington."

Their "control" was based upon the long history of civilization based upon being able to to back up lies with violence, while that never stopped those lies from still being fundamentally false. Therefore, every day, in every way, Neolithic Civilization has become increasingly psychotic, since the socially successful enforcement of frauds thereby became exponentially more fraudulent, while endless exponential growth was always absolutely impossible ... Those "zionist neoconservatives have controlled foreign and military policies" who ARE "the psychopaths who control the government in Washington," are "controlling" a civilization which is therefore spinning out of human control. Furthermore, the people whom they control are just as much drowning under the same bullshit world view, and just as much think about things in the same absurdly backward ways, as do the people who are thereby controlling them.

The ways that human beings and civilization lived as general energy systems, by being entropic pumps of environmental energy flows, are almost universally ignored and/or misunderstood by almost everyone, in the most absurdly backward ways. Therefore, that there now EXIST globalized electronic frauds, backed by the force of atomic weapons, directly corresponds to there now EXIST "zionist neoconservatives have controlled foreign and military policies," who ARE "the psychopaths who control the government in Washington."

Although one can hold on to the transcendental hope that the First Law of Thermodynamics is not going to stop working, the degree to which the now EXISTING civilization misunderstands the Second Law of Thermodynamics in the most absurdly backward ways possible, as well as generally also misunderstands everything else in the most absurdly backward ways, does not provide any good grounds for any reasonable hopes for the foreseeable future of that civilization.

Entropy was always a bitch, however, the most worse aspects of that (which is a kind of consistent contradiction, which arises a corollary to that) are the ways that almost everyone continues to take for granted thinking about time and space, and thus entropy, in the most absurdly backward ways possible, which continue to deliberately ignore that: “The unleashed power of the atom has changed everything except our modes of thinking and we thus drift toward unparalleled catastrophe.”

Atomic bombs go boom because matter is an extremely concentrated form of energy. Furthermore, when atomic bombs go boom, that proves that the special theory of relativity was correct that time and space are NOT independent absolutes, but rather, that time and space are relative to the conservation of energy, which then also indicates that entropy is relative to the conservation of energy.

Philosophically speaking:

ENERGY IS SPIRIT, WHILE ENTROPY IS THE SCIENTIFIC 'SATAN.'

Understanding entropy is scientific approach toward understanding evil.

Due to the ways that the biggest bullies' bullshit was able to dominate civilization, the ways that we think about evil were inverted, which then ended up being expressed in the ways that thermodynamics developed to invert the concept of entropy. Furthermore, when thermodynamics was extrapolated into information theory, the inversion of the concept of entropy was also extrapolated.

Since money is measurement backed by murder, doing so are actually applications of information theory and thermodynamics. In the 20th Century, that more and more became integrated systems of paper money frauds, backed by the force of gunpowder weapons. However, towards the end of the 20th Century, that become globalized electronic frauds, backed by atomic weapons.

Throughout those developments, civilization was based upon enforced frauds, which became exponentially more fraudulent. Furthermore, throughout those developments, almost everyone almost totally misunderstood everything in the most absurdly backward ways possible, as indicated by the ways that the biggest bullies' bullshit became the banksters' bullshit, such that the concept of evil was always being misunderstood in the most absurdly backward ways possible, which manifested as misunderstanding the concept of entropy in the most absurdly backward ways possible.

That is the context in which the only publicly significant things are the core groups of organized crime, bankster dominated governments, surrounded by layers of controlled opposition groups. Furthermore, that is also the context in which people like Paul Craig Roberts provide superficially correct analysis regarding the FACTS that "zionist neoconservatives have controlled foreign and military policies," who ARE "the psychopaths who control the government in Washington," however, Roberts actually continues to be controlled opposition, because the ways he thinks are deeply controlled by taking for granted the biggest bullies' bullshit world views, which were built into the English language, and the dominate philosophy of science.

Roberts, as well as almost everyone else who publishes on the Zero Hedge Web site, exemplifies a statement previously published there by Cognitive Dissonance:

"The absolute best controlled opposition is one that doesn't know they are controlled."

The unleashed power of the atom SHOULD have changed our modes of thinking. However, doing so would require series of intellectual scientific revolutions, and profound paradigm shifts, which SHOULD have been applied to political science in general, as well as to the combined money/murder systems in particular. It became theoretically imperative that the militarism, as the ideology of the murder systems, which backed up the money systems, SHOULD have gone through profound paradigm shifts after the development of weapons of mass destruction.

However, so far, the only things that happened were the ways that the MAD Mutual Assured Destruction policies were developed to continue to back up the MAD Money As Debt systems. Therefore, the only things that actually happened were the ways that the sociopolitical systems based upon being able to enforce frauds continued to become exponentially more fraudulent, and thus, the precarious balancing of the MAD Mutual Assured Destruction systems, became increasingly precarious, such that, when one includes the threats of future inside job, false flag attacks, like happened on 9/11/2001, it is perhaps too optimistic to assume that the Doomsday Clock is only "30 Seconds To Midnight."

It is actually globalized Neolithic Civilization as a whole that is manifesting runaway criminal insanities. It is not merely that the primary American ruling classes have become "zionist neoconservatives" who ARE "the psychopaths who control the government in Washington," but that also those they are ruling over have mostly matched that by becoming increasingly impotent political idiots. Civilization is in way worse a predicament than Roberts indicates, because there are no publicly significant opposition groups which are not forms of controlled opposition, due to the ways that their thinking is controlled, in ways that they mostly are not aware of, and therefore, not critical towards. That is how and why it is not only correct to perceive the metaphor that "entropy is a bitch," but also that is way worse than merely that!

Therefore, I have no reasonable optimism towards any possible "new establishment" to take over from the "old establishment." Although it is becoming more and more theoretically imperative that political science SHOULD integrate and surpass the paradigm shifts already achieved through mathematical physics going through series of profound paradigms shifts, there is practically nothing like that which has any public significance. Although there now EXIST globalized electronic frauds, backed by the threat of atomic weapons, nothing exists which is publicly significant which enables there to be enough changes in "our modes of thinking" regarding that EXISTING.

As far as I can see, the "old establishment" is dominated by professional hypocrites, while all of the publicly significant controlled opposition groups are also dominated by their own varieties of the best available professional hypocrites, and therefore, there is nothing to indicate any ways forward to some "new establishment" that has changed enough to adapt to the development of technologies like electronics, or atomic energy, etc. ... Rather, it continues to become more and more painfully obvious that militarism is NOT going through sufficiently profound paradigm shifts in the ways that death control systems are thought about, in order to develop ways to operate better human murder systems after the development of weapons of mass destruction.

While it is clear that the "old establishment" is as Roberts described, and therefore, that is suffering from its enforced frauds becoming exponentially more fraudulent, and hence, the debt insanities are headed towards provoking death insanities, it is NOT clear that there is any kind of "new establishment" which is ready and able to sufficiently change "our modes of thinking," in order for civilization to survive developing the already now EXISTING globalized electronic frauds, backed by the threat of force from atomic weapons.

Rather, the only things that are clear are the ways that the ruling classes are becoming increasingly psychotic psychopaths, while most of those they rule over are becoming increasingly impotent political idiots. Since civilization has always been based upon being able to enforce frauds, for thousands of years, there is barely anyone who is not being controlled by thinking using the biggest bullies' bullshit languages and philosophy of science. There is practically nobody in any of the publicly significant opposition groups that are not controlled in those ways. The only publicly significant opposition to the established systems are also professional hypocrites, deeply similar to those who dominate those established systems.

We are stuck inside the vicious spirals, which could be referred to as self-reinforcing double whammies, that because almost everyone takes for granted misunderstanding everything in the most absurdly backward ways possible, there are no politically possible ways to fix those problems, because those would take much more profound series of paradigm shifts than almost anyone is actually interested in accomplishing.

Although there are a relatively high frequency amongst the people who publish on Zero Hedge, who are headed towards superficial levels of "paradigmatic shift away from Ponzi Narco Casino Crony Capitalism," ALL of them, (including me too, of course) are trapped within the overall political realities that the most socially successful people continue to be the best available professional hypocrites. The only "alternatives," which can become sufficiently popular to become politically significant, are still stuck inside of the context of having to use the biggest bullies' bullshit languages, to try to communicate with people who have been brainwashed to believe in bullshit throughout their entire lives. Moreover, when one attempts to communicate the more profoundly wrong aspects of that bullshit-based world view, doing so becomes increasing difficult to do, while still using the biggest bullies' bullshit languages, and so, less and less people are able to understand and agree with that kind of communication.

While a lot of people can superficially agree with various superficial analyses of the problems presented by that the ruling classes have become "zionist neoconservatives have controlled foreign and military policies," who ARE "the psychopaths who control the government in Washington," there continues to be practically no agreement regarding what to do about that, and certainly, no politically possible agreements based upon any deeper analysis of how and why those problems now EXIST, in ways whose structural features result in those automatically getting worse, faster ...

Quantum Mechanics is the only universal belief system that people in modern contemporary civilization need to allow society to progress on all levels, but not all people in the world want to guide their lives without the principal of a universal God. Ergo, we can never dispense with centuries old religions that have guided people for millennia, but we can unearth the parallels that these centuries old religious traditions have with contemporary Quantum Mechanics so that we can bridge understanding between cultures, traditions, and sundry religions. Currently, we are witnessing a major World War between the orthodoxy of religion in the Western World and that of Muslim countries in the Middle East. The major problems stem from various religions attempting to impose their traditions, and orthodoxy, off onto opposition to these religious beliefs, and the result has been global terrorism unleashed by the Central Intelligence Agency, and their controlled operatives. Clearly, we see abject hatred emanating from Israel towards all Muslims throughout the world, and Israel happens to be in control of the entirety of the United States of America, and all NATO member countries. Moreover, they are becoming more violent towards one another as time progresses. With one culture acting as though they are the final arbiter of civilization we all stand to lose when things get taken to extremes and one group attempts to dominate all others. Just on the strength of population numbers in the Western World Israel assumes that it can force all other countries in the world to fall into line based on threats levied by the American MIC/CIA/NSA/ et cetera. We are presently at a juncture in history that will wipe out all of civilization due to Thermonuclear War that will wipe us all off the planet within months of Worldwide Armageddon. That war is manifesting as we write here and there is virtually no way to stop the principle actors from playing their respective parts in the last act of destruction that will render the World uninhabitable for all. This is where Israel has taken the World so that Israel could maintain American Hegemony that actually died back in 08 without their collective awareness. Today they still think they can force their belief system upon all others in the World and just that fight alone is destroying all of our chances to survive in this World before they blow it all up. In brief, if we can't change the way Israel views the World, and cultures, we will be heading towards nuclear Armageddon and all out destruction of every living thing on planet Earth. The problem is not with the planet, or alternative religions to that which is espoused in Israel, or America. The problem is Israel regardless of how we all existentially wound up here at this point with whatever belief systems we still engage cognitively. The Israel lobby in the USA has created the volatility and chaos that will ultimately lead to the 'new establishment' of governance based on the last few remaining survivors that have managed to eek out an existence to somehow survive nuclear winter wherever it is unleashed. What we can be sure of is that Israel will not survive, and neither will Israel's Pitt Bull terrier America.

Again, I agreed with you, MASTER OF UNIVERSE.

Quantum mechanics continues to be quite extraordinary, due to the degree that it repeatedly has been confirmed, to an extremely high level of precision, by every possible experiment. Furthermore, the entire electronics industry depended upon that in order to be made and maintained. HOWEVER, as you know, the possible philosophical implications of the extremely precise and experimentally confirmed mathematical physics which is referred to as quantum mechanics are AWESOME!

I certainly believe you are correct when you assert that quantum mechanics SHOULD play a significant role in attempts to reconcile post-modernizing physics with ancient mysticism, which would be a way to approach levels of consciousness which could integrate and transcend various other old-fashioned religions, and their dangerously obsolete metaphysics.

However, it is also too tragically true that:

"With one culture acting as though they are the final arbiter of civilization we all stand to lose when things get taken to extremes and one group attempts to dominate all others."

That is what the psychological and political habits of the ruling classes are attempting to continue doing!

I wish that I could disagree with your conclusions ...

However, I must agree!

The now defunct so-called 'ruling classes' can attempt to control the chaos all they want, but there comes a time when a convergence of many sorts of various types of chaos naturally manifests and overthrows old ruling ideologies through major shifts in thinking that come about via necessity. And necessity is the mother of invention so we can assume that the more chaos we are collectively subjected to will lead us all to an epigenetic effect of something analogous to Class Consciousness which is pretty much what Karl Marx said would happen due to overt Capitalist control over the means of production. With the advent of Internet that class consciousness is made possible via information, and access to information. This is why the Oligopoly wanted Aaron Swartz to stop disseminating information freely because then only the wealthy could access that information. In this respect information is power unlike wealth or political advantage. Swartz understood that information was true power, and he advocated that information should be free just as the great cyberneticists always envisioned for advanced knowledge bases that would be required in an advanced information society. The ruling classes are not unlike the old Roman Catholic Church attempting to keep the Bible from all peoples of the world. Historically, all forms of governance has attempted to dumb down society so that the ruling classes could take advantage of us all. Fortunately, for some of us that like information and education, their combined efforts to keep us all in the dark with regard to our lives and consciousness has failed miserably. This explains the present political sphere of infighting, backstabbing, and disinformation with regard to the Economy, and Economics.

Come on Neocons take your beating like a sport. The war's been won, you lost, so fuck off and die quietly, gracefully.

You are so very cool for stating this, WTFUD. Everyone on Z/H has been thinking this for at least 8 years now, but you are the first to actually say it with grace.

"the world is on the knife edge of nuclear catastrophe."

"The neoconservatives in Washington have replaced nuclear disarmament with a new nuclear arms race."

"Consider that 50 percent of Americans’ choices of marriage partner are miscalculations as established by the divorce rate."

This is getting to be just strange commentary.

And,

"The neoconservatives in Washington..."

"the psychopaths who control the government in Washington"

is contradictory...

it's fine if you want to bitch at the moon, and declare chaos,
but that's not what you're doing.
