Two Chains of Slavery: Police and Debt
We’ve already seen how the key to enslaving America in particular (and the West in general) is debt. I’m hardly the only person who sees this coming, but I was focused on how I felt the Illuminati were using the tactic. Comes now Anthony Wile who warns us the particular tool for this might be the IMF.
Late last week, London’s prestigious Financial Times carried an editorial on the subject entitled Easter Parade of Worries. According to the FT, “S&P’s aim plainly was political. US politicians must agree on a policy to reduce the deficit. This must involve cutting spending, reducing entitlements and raising taxes. Who exactly bears the brunt of these remedies is a political question, not an economic one. No politician wants to be responsible for such things, so it is no surprise that they avoid the problem.”
Notice the telltale language in the article: “This must involve cutting spending, reducing entitlements and raising taxes.” This language is directly out of the IMF playbook. Rather than question the fundamental alignment between the public and private sector — the basics of regulatory democracy — the IMF treats a country like a business and prescribes cost-cutting, privatization and other methodologies that address the symptoms instead of the cause.
While I doubt the IMF has anywhere near enough funding to pretend it can bail out the US, I don’t doubt the same language will be used for the same ends via some other entity.
But the whole thing smacks of the last dying gasp of a fading regime. It’s a race to see whether the West will collapse completely before the US government does. When the money goes away, so does the power, so financial collapse is all it takes. The problem for us here on the ground is what we have to suffer as this thing topples. It’s not just personal debt, but the swelling rate of violent crime as social order collapses without it’s one defining factor. Never mind actual wealth, as long as people felt they had money, things were fine. When the sense of prosperity goes away, the society built on the knife edge of consumer/debt based economics will crash very hard.
It’s not the predatory gangs of criminals that worry me; it’s the police. Keep in mind, I was once in law enforcement, and I’ll be the first to warn you never, ever trust a policeman. And it only gets worse as their numbers increase, as they become more distant from the rest of us, regarding us as the enemy. Of all the functions of government, this is the one which can do you the most harm, and is frankly most likely to try. The pretense of accountability is long gone. On a purely utilitarian level, we are facing the certainty that we would be better off if there were no police, simply because less harm would come to us as a whole.
As always, I insist there is really very little we can do to change this; the train will follow the tracks until it eventually wrecks right next to the tracks. It was falling apart long ago, and is past the point of repair. Our best bet is on the small scale, trying to remove ourselves and whatever we value from the tracks.
