Our Gamed System’s Lack Of Vision

These folks, our elected and appointed elites, need advice with our gamed system. It’s a shame the advice both the main party ideologies seem to have, is from other folks just like themselves. They are bound by beliefs and set practices that bar them from thinking creatively. This has caused us as “just regular citizens” of our country, and many others around the world to suffer. Of course, being regular citizens we know there are many ways to suffer. One of those ways is, the public having to respond to the politicians reactionary policies of fear, as they slam their breaks on sensible policies for our future. No matter what party you do or don’t belong to, we’re always recovering  from political whiplash at the very least.

If they’d only ask someone normal for an idea or opinion, as the present paid advisers, lobbyists, PAC, and Super PAC Spokespersons seem bent on destruction. The legislative powers approve some changes this foolishly, but disallow or don’t even consider other changes which of benefit. They’re plagued by old set practices from a time when our system of governance wasn’t so debased .

Goodness forbid, they might use a few advisers with life experiences, opposed to those with agenda’s, connection, and contracts, to give an honest appraisal. Then pick their minds for a wealth of knowledge, that’s reality based, All at less cost to their all so important elections to privilege, because they actually seem informed. Especially considering, how comical many elected officials look being as out of touch as they are. This might help, you never know. Certainly little else has made a real difference. Then, maybe we could actually address some of our mounting issues, and work on some of these, all around, burdens all.

Personally, I have little hope or sight of this ever happening. You see, every time I look at our politics I have this curious vision problem. I laughingly call my problem a “dystopia”. Today when I look at the political glass, it is neither half full or half empty, but cracked and leaking. I want the best for my fellow Americans, but I can’t see it coming back around. There’s just, no vision.

War Resource

What’s on my mind most today is actually kind of humorous, if only because, the debate they discus is no debate at all. It’s simply fluff distraction, and frankly a moot point with lessons from history. This fake debate is, “Are the Wars being waged in the middle east, southwest Asia and Africa, by western powers, or with their help and moneys, to support, help, and protect people, to push government change to western style democracies, or are they for resources ?”

I’ve had an issue with our network and mainstream news media for some time. It’s really disturbing to me, as I also write a WordPress page “Future News Headlines”. I think of it as a satirical parody of Newspaper Headlines, their manipulations misrepresentations and agenda’s, in a tag-line. So I see a few Headlines, in my daily reading. Really, some are just too much. So, I wanted to comment on this war debate, mentioned to begin with. Just to get my thoughts down.

I believe we can say of Wars, the preponderance whether they begin for resource or not, end for resources. Through time we’ve fought for food, land, tributes, slaves, and in our world patriarchy, women. These haven’t changed through time. No, as we’ve advanced to list of things we fight for has grown. Yet still, all our wars are about resources.

We try to trick ourselves or allow others to try to trick us into believing, a secondary motivated concern is the  known primary. This new primary reason for war, always turns on some humanitarian action. We do this and try to believe it, or have others convince us into believing it, because the alternative has the dominating power looking like the aggressor it actually is. That’s usually us, the Western powers.

We want to believe in our perceived righteous cause. We want to believe we have the moral high ground. We don’t make it there anymore, however. Yet few of us as individuals, actually use raw resources. But among us identified as “people” are those who do use raw natural resources. Those raw natural resources might include the sons and daughters of each citizen as fodder.

The flat fact appears, they are all wars for resources benefiting the élite, before they benefit an overall population. War’s financed by élite financing and supplied by business owned and controlled by the élite. And also, all citizens are resources to get what those élite on top most need. More money and power. But to argue, peace, freedom, and democracy are anything but a cover story, when we have history to refer to, is lying to yourself, not facing reality, and not looking at the whole picture. Peace freedom and real democracy are wonderful beautiful ideals to strive for, even if they aren’t primary concerns when we’re taken to War.

But hey, those are my thought. I don’t expect they’re yours.

Disorder Poem

Eric Holder Told Ya The UAV Order,

Within Our Own Boarder,

On Hoarders and Larders

And Those Divergent Belief Holders,

On One’s Mere Word Order,

No Assertion No Lawyer,

Till Rigor Takes Over,

Or Perhaps, It Was Just His Dream.

Creditors Over People

Does logic enter the discussions about bailouts and austerity? It seems it’s not. It is an error to think that those who are struggling will follow along blindly. The EU leadership here, is the cause of escalating protests. Protests frankly, that will only grow. I expect the growth will continue exponential, as the public outcry reaches critical mass.

This difficult situation is almost built into the system, and set to occur, because of the high percentage of youth unemployment. It will grow because further jobs are now set to leave the most volatile economies of the Euro zone. Even as the powers that be try to flood the media with stories of the latest trouble being averted.

The reality, when looking at the nature of man and the basic requirements to support life, the circumstance causing these protests were set  from the very start. Especially when the disenfranchised are the most energetic and educated about the practices in politics, but are left with nothing to do.

Jobs, or rather the lack of jobs, are the issue. They however, have been left out of the austerity talks, between struggling economies and the troika. This only shows that people, citizens of the EU nations, are secondary to creditor requirements.

The Government is in place, or was, for people. This emphasis has certainly transformed itself into a government against the people themselves. Suffering and famine of the people is now acceptable. The suffering and famine of non-living entities are now the unacceptable outcome.

I can see many possible futures, for the EU . My most hopeful future, has human interests returning to dominance. My logic says the trend will continue and protests will grow and spread even more. I worry though in this trend that protest and protesters will fall under harsher and harsher retaliation. I can even see a form of martial law coming into effect, to keep protesters as silent as possible, as debt caused by bailouts grows.

The reporting on these EU protests are somewhat down played, and the true reasoning behind the protests are seldom given much airtime. But then again, when were the young people’s voices last heard? I’m thinking those protests were last heard protesting  past foreign wars.

This tone through the EU will to continue, with the Elite ruling classes ignoring the citizens needs, for that of the financial industry as it deals with  repayment of debt. This  after making obvious poor choices in the financing of sovereign debt. A condition for which they only have themselves to blame. The powers that be however, punish the citizen worker, to pay back loans that were erroneously given and taken because of artificially low borrowing costs.

Still even seeing the possible outcomes, I say protest on. I feel as if the citizens have been literally sold-out, by their leadership. And maybe it’s a good thing the protesters, for the most part, are young. They will have the energy to carry on the fight for awareness. Exposing the plight of the young and poor, the disenfranchised people of the EU. Godspeed.

 

Returning to a Point, Before Fear

I have always loved people. People of all kinds. I don’t place rules on people. By that I mean, predetermine expectations that beliefs habit or culture must match my beliefs, or accept my ways as better and something to strive for.

For me, the present ways of the world are confusing. War and conflict, death and destruction, divide and conquer are the ways I speak of. With what seems to also be a struggle for resources, hidden behind the banner of American style democratization, hiding unspoken at the core of the present, confusing way. A phenomenon I see as the, I must get mine before you get yours, mind-set.

This phenomenon is caused, I feel, by a self-imposed fear. Not so much of the individuals fear, although it has affected that too, but a national fear. A fear that’s been easy to tap into, after The United States physical geography was compromised by attack. It was said at the time, “we can’t let a good crisis go to waste”.

I think this was the final huddle, for an agenda based in fear. Fear of a loss of influence, power, and control of a World Stage, as other more populous countries become stronger economic powers. The thinking and logic behind resource control, which is our foreign policy, allows for metering national economic advancements, in up and coming economic powers. The thinking here is, controlling  resources allow for the limitation of imports on those resources. Resources that could create large revenues for advancing economic powers.

This action has been pushed by China quietly gathering access to reserves of Rare Earth resources. The reason behind that being directly related to the underlying actions in our democratization, dare I say Crusade. A crusade that actually has little to do with the main stated purpose of Freedom and Democratization .

I’ve said all this not agreeing with the violence on the part of any nation. Violence which I believe to be somewhat caused by our example. Holding a policy position, while actions are taken that don’t  move towards that policy position, is a method of influence our leaders have used in the past many times. Now I expect everyone to utilize the same method, in achieving their goals.

I love my country. I would never accept someones physical control of our nations land. By that I can also understand those who don’t appreciate our occupation. So, I feel in moving our foreign policy forward ,while maintaining our place as a  world power, with a voice that’s listened to, requires a change in the implementation our foreign policy. I know and recognize there are powers within the United States, who will fight against any change of direction in our foreign policy, as it means monetary losses themselves and their friends.

Returning to a point where we had control of ourselves, requires that the public for a start,  recognizes that fear is being used as a method of quiet control here at home. Fear that guides the public into unquestioning acceptance of our nations actions abroad. Actions taken in all our name. Actions where war and conflict, death and destruction, divide and conquer are the method used for the implementation of our foreign policies. A policy, as I’ve stated of, “I must get mine before you get yours”, resource control, under the guise of spreading freedom and democracy.

Morals and ethics, even when they take effort and sacrifice to achieve, will serve you better when it comes to respect, than raw force and power.

Globalization, A Class War

I wish I had the skill as a writer, to enlighten those I know and love, all my friends, as to a coming economic downturn. A downturn based in the confusion and panic around the world financial system, due to the unyielding stance of globalization proponents. I can’t support any who wish to press for globalization, over the citizens of their own nations. That type of government, is no government at all. They’ve forsaken their responsibility to their own citizenry.

Globalization has been looked at as a savior of man, believing it will end wars, and there by bring stability. I believe the trend to sovereigns forced austerity, will be the catalyst that brings a new type of class war. I have commented on what I believe to be the creation of an EU caste system akin to the of India. The problem is in the history and advancement of these countries in question, as individual autonomous nation states. The people of these nations, within the EU, will not return to a feudal system.

Globalization however, will require this of even the most powerful of nations, to submit to this loss of sovereignty. As the United States comes to a fiscal cliff. As Spain is pressured to take Bailouts. As Greece is threatened with economic genocide, if they don’t continue to work against their own citizens well being. As Portugal falls further behind the curve, trying to accomplish the EU’s budgetary requirements. As the Irish search for a way to recover from their brush with bailouts and EU demands. Each nation goes further and further into debt and the control of the Union.

The end is the same for every nation. The goal a dual class system, of total control by a few elites. The more complex it appears to the average global citizen, the better it is for those in the seats of global control. The more complex, the more confusing it will be to those in the class that’s controlled. The more complex and confusing the system of control, the harder it becomes to question the power structure overall.

As usual, the Globalization movements has been about power and control, not the betterment of the human situation. The spoils of the scheme go to a inside few, while all the rest of us will see a return to a darker age. I already fear, this plan has come too far. I hope I am wrong, but plans for worldwide regional monetary unions are already in place.

Desiring a national identity, and a continued common national culture, is the one strength the average citizens share. It’s also their power and strength. Average citizens need to use this power to speak out. An unending uncompromising stance against globalization needs to grow everywhere, before that chance to speak out is taken from the underclasses, in the coming dual class system.

More Killer Rhetoric

The subject matter spoke of,  in the linked article, seems to pertain to actions that may cause, a  “Blow-back” experience sometime in the future. But it seems in the CFR, (Council on Foreign Relations)  there’s support for a future expansion of these practices. You see,  they are thought to be useful, and even successful. It appears this “direct approach’, as it’s called, has caused much collateral damage. A nice name for killing and destruction of non targeted individuals and areas. Yet with statements like, “The investment has paid clear dividends…” , it would seem little  thought is given to the future effects of  “Blow-back”, on the citizenry. They simply continue to push, working to accomplish the goal of installed puppet governments, that help further a  control over regional resources.

Hope is what’s needed, for a new policy to come to pass.  The drone issue is set to drone on. They will continue  the well marketed  “Winning Hearts and Minds” policy speak. They will do the same with “The Right Side of History” rhetoric.  The policies don’t fit the catch phrases, and buzz words don’t fit the practice. And mans inhumanity to their fellow beings, is set to continue on all sides.
