“Money Talks and Bullshit Walks”
We live in a multipolar reality. That is, there is a unified, interconnected world of the global financial elites who control and dominate currency and credit issuance worldwide through a handful of unaccountable international banking institutions and there is also a subordinate world of national politics of many countries also controlled and dominated by the same elites (and their lackeys) whose job it is to “educate”, “explain” and “rationalise” the fact of its debt enslavement to .998 of the world’s population.
The most naked exposition of the dissonant aspects of this divergence between globalism for the rich and nationalism for the rest of us is found within the EU but it is in fact the same duality in existence everywhere for all of us.
Most people can only comprehend and identify with the national characteristics of this dissonant, dual belief system. Most people, the overwhelming majority at the moment, simply don’t care as long as food is on the table, and the babies and the elderly are attended too. Some believe the solution to the ills of our indebtedness is to be found in a populist, nationalist politics which can free us from control by wealthy internationists. We see Brexit and “Amerikkka First” as leading examples of this plebian desire.
The many must be convinced to understand their enslavement by the system before any change of lasting consequence can occur. This likely will take the starvation of our babies and the euthanasia of our elderly before we will wake up to our enslavement.
The international financial system will crush the illusions of the Brexiteers and the Amerikkkan Firsters (this in fact has largely already occurred). Currency control and indebtedness will not vanish simply with a breakdown of any nationalist political order. One cannot eat money as the old saying goes and this is true no matter what colour is printed on the bank notes.
Others comprehend the true enemy as a system which must be destroyed with the accumulated “wealth of nations” (which in reality is privately-held by an international sliver) must be redistributed equitably among the .998.
Still, what is hoped for by the intelligentsia is still a nationalist solution to a global problem. What isn’t reconciled within this viewpoint is the elasticity of global financiers to accommodate any change in the world’s political re-ordering, short of the destruction of capitalism itself. The finacial system serves one function, and doesn’t in fact care which individuals, national currencies, banks or corporations gain or lose from the machinations.
This international system was created out of the ruins of WWI. The system survived the Great Depression when socialism reached its zenith of political popularity in the industrialised world, and in turn survived (and in fact greatly accommodated and assisted) the extreme Nazi nationalist dream of international political control.
Today we see the increasing impact of the once isolationist Chinese openly participating in the globalist system and in time through sheer weight of numbers Asia will come to dominate the system. Until this day arrives the Chinese are very comfortable operating within the old Eurocentric structure as teh current system works functions quite well for their elites.
In reality, it doesn’t matter whether the international currency is dollar, yuan or Euro denominated. The illusion that it does matter is a figment of a nationalist mindset which invests morality where none in fact exists. Sanctions have a temporary, terrible impact on national banking structures it is true but mainly to the detriment of the .998 while the .002 have already moved their personal assets out of harms way (for tax reasons unrelated to sanctions).
The Russians and Chinese for domestic political purposes now talk about creating a separate system of wealth through competing banking systems. This is mostly the nationalist political order providing false hopes to their own subjects.
Merely the thought of a competing globalist banking system is absurd on its face and should be enough for any intelligent layman to understand the occurrence of systemic change can happen only as the greater bulk of real wealth underlying a currency grows great enough over time to supercede the wealth represented by current denominations.
This will by necessity be a long, extemely slow process because none of the Amerikkkan, Euro, Russian or Chinese elites will risk substantial amounts of their current fortunes simply to placate their own subjugated populations with anything other than ongoing, nationalist political rhetoric.
