There has been a conspiracy going on for several decades now, in subterranean bunkers and in the utmost secrecy to begin with, where plans have been drawn up for how to extract for their own profit every ounce of valuable goods that the earth is harboring. How many wars will be necessary, and where? How much propaganda to fool the people into sheepish acceptance of these illegal wars? How to get the media to cooperate in this nefarious project?

This is the Project for the New American Century or PNAC -- also called The New World Order. The answers to these questions was to buy up the media and to let the propaganda run full-speed, non-stop so as to draw a thick curtain over what was being done to the world in the name of the American people.

A brood of very sick people had been hatching these plans. Their ambition was to enhance the unilateral power of the U.S. Empire in cozy cooperation with the multinational corporations. Corporatism (also called Fascism) was seeing the full light of day and the goal was for the leaders to lay their hands on the most enormous amount of private wealth the planet had ever witnessed. They had no intention of letting us the people in on the secret of what was being done to us and to the world. These emotionally atrophied quasi-human beings are out to control the universe solely in order to enrich themselves.

Seemingly ignoring the most obvious facts -- that the resources of the world are finite and that the destruction of the planet will be the end result -- they surge ahead to seep the last drop of oil, water and nourishment out of the earth. They are totally void of what we usually consider normal human feelings. Their own enrichment, and nothing else, matters. They don't seem to care if or when the earth's resources are going to be completely dried up, so long as they have built their castle on the hill. They seem to imagine that they alone will be secure in their fortresses, even when nobody is able to get any more food out of the soil or any oil from under the earth or the oceans.

So what is then going to run the machinery that their blind march forward has created, the march towards total mechanization of every act on this earth, rendering every natural act and product superfluous? The disconnect from a realistic view of what is lying ahead of us is staggering.

We live in an age where there is only one word that seems to have any true importance: more. The predators know of no way backwards towards sanity, no way back towards regaining a way of life that has anything to do with sane living, a way of dealing with nature that does not lead to destruction. Anything that is not robotic machinery and genetically engineered agricultural and animal products is of no value to the Corpocrats. The goal of the huge corporations that these predators have built up is to dominate nature, rather than living and working at peace with nature, the way it's been done for millennia. 

Forward we go until there is no more healthy soil left, no more water left for agriculture, for humans, animals or plants. Forward we go, poisoning the earth, the water, the air -- and our very souls.

The only thing that has any importance at all for these half-humans, disconnected from reality and from any form of normal life, is what they consider Progress. Progress, that is, that creates money to fill their coffers. Money that can, or so they seem to think, give them the illusion that they alone will be spared when the final day of life on earth arrives. Their seeming inability to realize how their path leads to a total train wreck is mind-boggling. How can anyone at all fail to see what we are headed for?

But it is not people that these half-humans are concerned with. People just do not matter in any way, as the base for production (machines will do the job) or as mouths that have to be fed or bodies that have to be cared for. Profit is the only thing that is of any importance to these predators. They are laughingly and blindly running the train of civilization into the ground, and they are sufficiently detached from reality to fail to see that they too are onboard that train. We are in this maelstrom together.

The great illusion

The illusion that keeps feeding those madmen is the firm belief that they have a right to own the world, to do what they wish with the world's resources, to plunder and kill whatever and wherever they have the desire to do so and to dominate any people on the planet.

The masters of the world have created a web of corporations and military bases around the globe and they never hesitate to strike when they see a need for intervening murderously and greedily. Greed and gleeful killing are the two sides of the same coin. The soldiers of the Empire are never invited -- they are always the intruders.

American GIs are told to kill whenever something moves and they seem to do so with great gusto. Of course, they have very carefully been indoctrinated to see non-Americans as cannon fodder, soulless subhuman beings who are better off dead.

And, maybe most important of all in the eyes of the people, their own God is far superior to the God of the invaded people. The Other religion is by definition uncivilized and evil. And so the Other is also uncivilized and evil. What they see as the only civilized religion with a God who favors their own civilized country is unquestionably the free pass they need to invade and kill indiscriminately. Reason doesn't enter into the equation.

Whenever the people of a nation -- always an inferior nation of course, a subculture -- takes matters in their own hands and rebels against a dictator, Washington gets in behind the scene and sorts things out so that in the end the country gets back to the same subservient status as was the rule before the rebellion. The client state is back in service to the U.S. Empire and the Corporatocracy, back to serve the insatiable hunger of the Empire for increased profit and world domination. Power is a key word. Power to make everything their own, power to kill indiscriminately, power to grab anything that glitters.

They Don't Get It

Oil makes the world go round. There is just no way the Corpocrats are going to realize that there just is not enough oil and other resources to go on with life as it was before the world began to change. Global warming and the overextension of the earth's resources have made the end of life as we know it a certainty that is just around the bend.

The ruts have been worn deep and the predators have heavy vehicles that make it seemingly impossible to get out of those ruts. Instead they dig themselves in forever more deeply. It is the flight forward (in French: "la fuite en avant' = digging oneself in deeper), when the world should instead be turning back, looking for new solutions for the earth to continue to be the home to plants, animals and human beings. Just close your eyes and go on digging for that black gold under the surface of the earth until the whole earth crumbles and you yourself are caught inside the earthquake!
