The New World Order: America need not apply
Author's note: I sort of consider myself to be a worldly and politically aware person, yet here I am just now realizing stuff about the deadly and treacherous men who run our planet -- stuff that people like Patrice Lumumba, Che Guevara and Evita Peron were painfully aware of even back in the 1950s, back when I was naively busy reading Nancy Drew and selling Girl Scout cookies.
Better late than never?
I was talking with a friend recently regarding the role of America as the world's only superpower. "America is rapidly losing its place at the head of the table," commented my friend, and I immediately agreed -- but for a different reason than the one that he had in mind.
"America as a country," I replied, "is not only being forced to share its superpower status with China, Russia and the European Union at this point in time but, in the near future, things are going to get even worse for the U.S. I'm thinking that even as soon as ten or 20 years from now, America will be pretty much known in the world as a second-rate has-been."
"Never happen!" exclaimed my friend. "We've got the money, the people, the Constitutional government and the natural resources -- not to mention the military power -- to stay at the top of the heap for the rest of this century and beyond."
"Ah, but the key word in your argument here is the word 'we'. It strongly appears, however, that 'we' no longer control America's bounty. 'THEY' do."
Adolph Hitler was an idiot. He chose to take over the world by force -- whereas if he had just stayed cool and played his cards right, he could have taken over the world with his superb propaganda machine instead. If he had done that instead of blitz-kreiging London and Poland and France and wherever, I bet you dollars to donuts that he would still be in power to this day. But Hitler was a thug -- not a con-man.
And now the con-men are in charge. They have the exact same agenda as Hitler -- corporatism -- but they are obviously succeeding where Hitler failed. They now own America lock, stock and barrel -- something that Hitler could only dream of.
"Jane," you might say, "You gotta be kidding. Americans own America." Do we?
Do "we" control the White House, Congress and the Supreme Court? No. Do "we" control Wall Street? No. Do "we" control our natural resources, our food supply, our foreign policy, our treasury, our voting machines, our banking system, our tariffs, our industry? No, no, no, no, no, no, no and no. Do we even control our own media? Absolutely no!
When George H. W. Bush announced his plans for a "New World Order" back in 1984 (or whenever), he let the cat out of the bag regarding what had apparently been in the works for years. "New. World. Order." We all shoulda just read his lips. But back then we all thought his plan was for AMERICA to rule the world. Yeah right. And it turns out from hindsight that Bush's New World Order had no place for "We the People" in his plan -- except as a source of cheap labor.
You think I'm wrong about this? When you die and get up to heaven, just ask John Kennedy if I'm wrong!
At this point in time, it seems pretty clear that a handful of rich men at the top of the food chain run the world with an iron hand. Not a blade of (genetically engineered) grass grows anywhere on the planet -- except perhaps in Outer Mongolia -- but that the New World Order doesn't know about it, approve of it and milk it for all that it's worth. Hitler would have been so jealous!
"Okay, Jane, these are outrageous charges -- but where's your proof? Prove that you're right!"
No. You (try to) prove that I'm wrong.
PS: Here's a video of me and baby Mena taking a trip around South Berkeley, visiting Ashby Nails and the Berkeley Public Library and lamenting the planet's take-over by the One World Order: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y4sPiybYgs0
PPS: I'm currently trying to struggle through all five hours of that 2008 movie "Che" on Netflix, starring Benitio Del Toro http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8lT-VGqnQmo&fmt=18. You might consider watching it too. Way back in the 1950s, the rich dudes who run America now practiced up their "exploiting the masses" chops by exploiting Cuba. And Iran. And the Congo. And what they did to Cuba, Iran and the Congo back then appears to be exactly what they are doing to America now -- creating a peasant underclass whose only job is to provide the above-mentioned rich dudes with cheap labor.
While watching this movie, which is set way back in the day, all I could think of was that, 60 years later, the rich dudes are now doing to Haiti and Afghanistan and Iraq exactly what they did to Cuba back in the days of Batista, to Argentina after Evita died and Chile after Allende was killed. You're next, suckers!
But then on the other hand, perhaps America won't need another Che Guevara in order to save the day here. Perhaps the innate goodness that lies in the hearts of you and me and all of us other average Americans will finally wise up and tell the rich dudes where to go all by ourselves.
