Has anyone else noted that the apparent Motive for the engineered "financial crisis" has been suggested by the recent headlines?
The IMF has been "invited" (by attendees of closed-door meetings, of course) to lend more money to "emerging states" like Iceland and Pakistan, and to be a "major player" in any "solution" the architects of this crisis create--or more accurately, put into place--when they meet, again behind closed doors, to "restructure the global (sic) economy."
However, in "borrowing" from the IMF, countries must sign on to the devastating "reform" programs that are proven to not only place foreigners in control of a nation's economy, but also drive wealth out of the country in question, leaving poverty in its place, spreading like wildfire, as well as the usual problems which accompany rampant sudden, abject poverty.
These are the exact same policies that most South American countries have already suffered under, which prompted the nations' politicians--those who replaced the corrupt officials who signed onto the programs in question (in the name of short-term "debt relief", little more than signing into MORE debt) to reject these policies, and tell the IMF in no uncertain terms where to go.
Nobel Prize-winning economist (and former IMF Chief) Joseph Stiglitz, says in his book "Globalisation and its Malcontents" that, even if these programs were not initially intended to produce such diastrous results, their continued implementation in the face of so much evidence of their harmful effects, proves a malicious intent on the part of those pushing them.
British PM Gordon Brown, who only weeks ago was being called upon by an angry British public to step down, is being credited with the plan that French PM (and Israeli Sayan) Nicolas Sarkozy recently toured the world urging other right-wing reactionary Regimes to adopt. However, it seems certain that this plan was ready to go when the "crisis" arose. (Much like the agenda of widespread aggression which was prepared in advance of 9/11 ...) But who actually wrote it?Whose plans are "we" being asked to enact?To what end?
When it's "US" bearing the brunt of the policies these criminals created, in order to enrich themselves at our collective expense, it's "every man for himself."
Now that the house of cards these people created has collapsed--as opponents of these schemes such as myself predicted for well over a decade, while the media ignored us--and it's "THEM" who are feeling a pinch, suddenly it's "one big happy family" ...
Perhaps the small group of criminals who created the policies which laid the foundation for this situation--those who then profited greatly from these policy blunders, while the average labourer suffered (policies created behind closed doors with no public oversight or input, protected from the "democratic process" by riot police, soldiers, corrupt officials, Agents Provocateurs, armoured vehicles, helicopters, tear gas, pepper spray, a compliant corporate media, etc. etc. etc., collectively referred to as "Globalisation")--could pass a hat around at the upcoming closed door meetings, where the same people responsible for this mess, instead of facing prosecution, will try and determine how they can 'fix' the problem, while continuing to profit from the system they design.
Surely, these millionaires, multi-millionaires, and billionaires could take a hit for the greater good.
After all, isn't that what they demand of us ... ?
Or, perhaps we could actually do something to stop this process from repeating itself, and demand that those responsible are held to account for their actions.
Is there a mechanism whereby we can take this out of their hands entirely?
If there isn't, then we should demand that this be put off until a truly representative process can be created. The current paradigm is akin to borrowing from the mafia, or pushing down on the accelerator, while the car is pointed at a cliff.
It's hardly a coincidence that this "crisis" has arisen just as so many of the countries involved are ruled by staunch Neo-Conservatives, Bilderbergers, etc. They who created these plans to "fix" the problem--which already appears to be nothing more than an expanded version of the failed policies which created the situation in the first place --are being relied on right now.
We've been way too quiet on this issue. What has happened to the so-called "AntiGlobalisation Movement"? We need to be making ourselves seen and heard, right now, not only in the streets, but in the halls of power, the TV/Radio studios, and opinion pages throughout the printed press.
After all, this situation vindicates everything we warned about for well over a decade. It also proves the stuffed-shirt, well-paid pundits and "editorial writers" wrong.
It's time the media started paying us some mind, so that the public is exposed to the voices who were correct all along, instead of having to suffer through more of the same from those who were dead wrong all along.
