The end of Globalism

leave a comment »

It is strange that in the 30’s depression it took many years to sort it out simply because no one understood it. Finally a man called Keynes had the solution; create Public works. Also Hitler managed to revive the German economy.
.
What is strange is how long it took for the penny to drop, for people to realize the right solutions. The circumstances are different today, mostly because of globalisation and technology. But we are likely, if we are lucky, to wait many years before we see a viable solution.
.
Somehow we are blinkered in only seeing rescue as meaning the financial institutions. They print, lend, count and charge interest. There must be another way. These institutions are not really tied to any land, they are loyal to profit mostly. Yet they are often also loyal to zionism.
.

Anyway, maybe we need to relook at capitalism. It has given us Halliburton and Monsanto. Both of whom are worth billions and specialize in killing, either people or vegetation. What else has capitalism produced?: Baby oil is actually mineral oil like we use for cars, a plant oil is far superior. Cosmetics containing toxins. The widespread use of Soya which is full of estrogen, many babies drink soya milk formulas with the equivalence of giving the baby five birth control pills. The Asians who are famous for their use of Soya, only use it Fermented! And then there is the alcohol, cigarette and soft drink manufacturers.
.
Communism had its problems, but it really failed through the western intel agencies dirty tricks.
.
Mist likely the banks will fail, inflation will come and our leaders will wish for war. No one seems to have a clue. Only to print more money, and that would be okay, if it worked, but it is not working! And probably nobody knows why it is not working.
.
So it is the end of an era.

The headlines read Canadian Prime minister expects Depression (H/T WRH).

Depression possible: Canadian PM

Prime Minister Stephen Harper delivered a grim forecast for the Canadian economy, saying in an interview with broadcaster CTV a depression is possible.
.
“The truth is, I’ve never seen such uncertainty in terms of looking forward to the future,” Harper told CTV. “I’m very worried about the Canadian economy.”

Richard Branson says economy f***** .

The Virgin boss was asked his views on the economy by Five News. “I was going to say, it’s f*****, but I think I had better not have said that,” he replied.

He added: “I think it is a terrible, terrible mess, which has been brought upon us by some very irresponsible people in the banking community, some very lax regulation and we are going to have to work hard to dig ourselves out of it. Source (H/T Rense)

And so on……
.
It is our system that is screwed, and it seems no one understands what to do or why it is. And no one points to the cost of the wars!
.
Banks and investors are no longer seen as worthy, does that mean necessary?
.
The greek riots are surely a sign of what’s to come. And the nearest precursors are the anti Globalisation riots in Washington, the Poll tax riots in London, paris in 68 and the anti Vietnam strife of the sixties.
.
While many of our oligarchs may push for world government and maybe a world currency, these are just the wealthy, the privileged. The poor, the working class and now the middle class would all probably like a deglobalisation.
.
Here is an excellent article on the subject (tipofthehat to whatreallyhappened).

Will You Go Quietly?

By David Glenn Cox
.
Can we cut the crap here? Can we look dispassionately at the issue before us? This is a class struggle; it has always been a class struggle and it is always going to be a class struggle. We can cloak the issue of globalization in the mantle of altruism, that this is good for all concerned, but that is just not so.
.
Globalism is good for the investment class and the ownership class and the banking class.
.
Globalism has injured working people on every continent on the planet. In the disguise of free trade, polluting industries migrate to where the laws most allow pollution. Globalism has brought about societal breakdowns everywhere that it goes. Subsistence farmers in Mexico find their water supply polluted by a US-owned blue jean factory. Unable to grow crops they abandon the land and head north to the United States, adding to the problem of illegal immigration.
.
Mexican peasant farmers must now compete with US agribusiness in their domestic market place and find themselves pushed below subsistence level. In our domestic market coffee prices have soared, but the amount of revenue going to the farmers has gone down. Free trade has benefited the coffee consortia, but the revenue is never passed along to the workers. This is the recurring theme of globalization over and over, productivity goes up, profits rise and wages fall. As coffee prices rise and fall, farmers in Vietnam react by cutting down more rain forest to plant more trees in an endless spiral of working harder for less.

.

We can’t have it both ways; exclusivity, nationalism AND globalisation, that is one problem.

.

Free trade is also going to lose its fashionability, people want to work, and they see outsourcing.

.

Everyone needs to feel needed that is the problem.

.

The factory worker has nothing to do, and the investor has nothing to do, yet they feel very different to one another.

.

At the end of this crisis, everyone is going to feel a little similar.

.

And when we look back at the billionaires and the poor and homeless, we will look back in disbelief.

.

There is something reminiscent about the Atlantis myth. A mighty navy and country falling apart in incessant wars.
