Empire Rag
A Military March in Goose Step

Neo-conservatives are the military wing, the enforcer,
of the Rockefeller-Rothschild One World Order.
They're concerned with the geostrategic pissing contest
and the appearance of their plans for global dominance
as "robust' and "muscular." 

So every few years they take a small, unarmed country
and slam it up against the wall to show the world
America means business,
which is what those actually in charge
of the two wings of the Money Party,
are able to conduct without interference,

by using neoconservatives as attack dogs
and/or backup as they ram their neoliberal policies
and Chicago School economics down the world's throat
and call it "free" trade and the "gift" of democracy

which are merely highly-polished charades,
since their most successful examples
built military and economic empires
with an Iron Curtain of protective tariffs

and used them mercilessly as battering rams
to penetrate emerging economies' markets
and prevent them from using the very same formula
that worked so well for both the UK and America

by forcing "developing" countries to compete
on a lop-sided field of "First World" hegemony
on which one side has the nukes, 500 years of history,
owns the referees and has most of the money
and the other has the land and other natural resources
that the Bully Boys' Bully Team covets.

There is not now, and never has been a free market. 

From their beginnings, industrialized nations
built themselves up on the unassailable bastion
of protectionism,
shielding their Big Business from the debilitating effects
of other industrial economies' free market competition.

The American textile industry succeeded
because it was protected from British competition. 
As did steel a hundred years later
via the very same high tariff protectionism.

J.D. Rockefeller dispensed entirely
with the notion of "free" market capitalism,
by spelling it out for the rest of us
when he said, "Competition is a sin."

So in essence, Washington Consensus
"free" market capitalism
is like arm wrestling Edward Scissorhands
and having just as much chance at winning.

And that's the name of that tune.


"Since trade ignores national boundaries and the manufacturer insists on having the world as a market, the flag of his nation must follow him, and the doors of the nations which are closed against him must be battered down.  Concessions obtained by financiers must be safeguarded by ministers of state, even if the sovereignty of unwilling nations be outraged in the process.  Colonies must be obtained or planted, in order that no useful corner of the world may be overlooked or left unused." 

 - Woodrow Wilson
