Connecting the Dots to Our Brave New World
Humankind is at a cusp, a point of transition between two different states of governance and existence. The world today is like a sack being slowly filled while the string around the opening is pulled increasingly tighter to prevent the contents from escaping confinement. The shadows of this future are everywhere to be seen but even the keenest of observers tend to view the portents not as the warnings they are, but instead regard all these pieces of one despairing puzzle as disconnected and unrelated events. In this essay, we will take a look at where our world is going, how it is going there, and why it is going there.
For, dark and despairing, my sight I may seal, but man cannot hide what God would reveal.
‘Tis the sunset of life gives me mystical lore,and coming events cast their shadow before.
One needn’t be credentialed as either prophet or oracle to make the connections and expose the plan. It is another matter entirely to convince average readers of the truth of it. German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer wrote that all truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident. We are midway between the first and second stages, where proponents of exposure are still widely ridiculed but, if they gain a popular audience, they will be violently attacked.
Where we are going – One World Government
Lest we succumb to the temptation of dismissing this as yet another batty conspiracy theory, it would be wise to consider these quotes:
David Rockefeller in an address to the Trilateral Commission, referring to the Bilderberg Group, whose existence was hotly denied and derided for decades as just another conspiracy theory:
“We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected the promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the bright lights of public scrutiny during those years. But, the world is now more sophisticated and fully prepared to march towards our one world-government. The supranational sovereignty of our intellectual elites and world bankers is surely preferable to the globe as a whole.”
Montagu Norman, Governor of The Bank of England prior to the crash of 1929, addressing the United States Bankers’ Association, New York, Idaho Leader, 26 August 1924.
“When, through process of law, the common people lose their homes, they will become more docile and more easily governed through the strong arm of the government applied by a central power of wealth under leading financiers. These truths are well known among our principal men, who are now engaged in forming an imperialism to govern the world.”
Banker Paul Warburg, testifying before the US Senate on February 17, 1950, stated,
“We will have a world government whether you like it or not. The only question is whether that government will be achieved by conquest or consent.”
We will have a look at one example each of the ‘conquest’ and ‘consent’ scenarios in Iraq and Greece, but let me state here that there are literally thousands of similar statements going back well over 100 years (sufficient with footnotes to fill a 300-page book), by authors and personalities famous and obscure, but all containing essentially the same message – that the financial powers of Europe and America are planning a super-sovereign world government within their absolute control. One would have to be a fool to ignore the sheer volume of evidence.
A Quick Look at Greece
Greece is now a failed state, an almost perfect exemplar of our future, the definitive ideal of those planning the world to come. Driven into bankruptcy by unrepayable loans, the leaders of Greece threw away their nation’s one chance for survival as a sovereign state and instead capitulated totally, accepting draconian measures meant to perpetually impoverish their population, while privatising the entire nation in one fell swoop. The international bankers bullied Greece into placing the nation’s entire infrastructure into a so-called trust (controlled by “an independent Luxembourg-based company”), which, by order, would be “entirely outside the reach or influence” of the Greek government. The bankers and their friends will now take ownership of all of it, at prices they set.
Greece was bullied into a package of reforms with severe austerity measures and spending cuts. The government slashed spending in all quarters, eliminated 25% of civil service positions, reducing wages by 30% for those remaining. Greece was forced to increase the VAT rate, reduce (and eliminate) pensions and increase the retirement age, raise the domestic corporation tax while cutting taxes for the top 1% and foreign corporations, take drastic measures to “improve tax collection and fight tax evasion”. Naturally, the economy instantly cratered, losing about one quarter of its size with unemployment rising above 25% and youth unemployment above 50%, rendering the majority of families under considerable financial stress.
The government was also forced to establish virtually a new constitution, with Eurocrats and IMF officials not only writing the new laws but also having a veto over all new legislation, serving to embody in law a lack of social infrastructure and perpetual poverty, emasculating the sovereignty of the state. To ensure compliance with the austerity directives, Greece is obliged to surrender control over the policing of all major portions of its economy. Eurocrats and IMF officials not only wrote the new laws, but EU (i.e. banking) officials are placed inside all ministries, with authority to ensure compliance and control funds. Greeks now hate the Europeans bitterly, believing that these foreign creditors’ power to “rummage through every government department on Greek soil” is an insult to Greek sovereignty, with Greece in fact and reality now facing not only austerity but external governance.
