"...The poor people in those countries would be stuck ultimately with this amazing debt that they couldn’t possibly repay. A country today like Ecuador owes over fifty percent of its national budget just to pay down its debt. And it really can’t do it. So, we literally have them over a barrel. So, when we want more oil, we go to Ecuador and say, Look, you’re not able to repay your debts, therefore give our oil companies your Amazon rain forest, which are filled with oil....”
John Perkins, author of Confessions of an Economic Hit Man on how global bankers and international corporations operate around the world.
Our present financial mess was not an accident that occurred without any warning. The warnings had been out there for years, and I know this because I was one of the those that had been doing the warning.
So here is another warning for you that will likely occur in the not too distant future.
Presently we are being set up by the global bankers and the few powerful financial elites that actually run most of the governments of the world. They are now playing the same game here in the United States that they have been playing around the world for many decades.
So as you might know, fascism is just corporatism. That is, fascist governments exist to serve corporate power and do the will of the financial interests. Fascist governments serve the corporate and financial will with brutality, repression, and expansionism.
Now you might think this describes the United States and you would be right. But there is presently one thing that is missing from complete corporate control (fascism) in the United States and that is there are still many natural resources, infrastructure, and functions that are currently under the control of the government.
So essentially this game plan is used on 3rd world nations by the global corporate power structure to capture the resources of their countries. By creating huge debts that the 3rd world countries cannot hope to pay back, the bankers inform these poor countries that they need to hand over their natural resources to international corporations to pay back those debts.
In the future when the American people are brought to their knees over the massive fraud, the bankers are going to inform us that we will have to sell all of our natural resources (water for example), our government lands, parks, our infrastructure, and government operations to international corporations that own our politicians. The politicians will love this plan since they are bought and paid for by their corporate masters. The media will love this plan since they are corporately controlled. The American people will love this plan because they will think that it will keep their taxes lower and, after all, government is evil.
But when the corporations finally get control of everything then that will make the games of Enron and the oil companies look like child's play. There will be manufactured shortages everywhere and it will cost a fortune for a glass of water. To take a ride down a highway will be an expensive proposition. To visit a park will be a costly venture and a public library will no longer be needed. Social security will be run by massive financial companies that will swindle the American people in their old age. All schools will be segregated based on people's ability to pay and to afford a decent school will be out of the reach of most parents.
So this is what awaits the American sheeple. But it doesn't have to be this way.
The American people could become citizens again and not just programmed consumers. There could be an awakening that drives the power back into the hands of the people. The people could demand that their interests are served by their elected officials. The people could demand prosecution of the crooks, liars, and international war criminals. The people could demand regulation of business and finance and that corporations are held accountable (the end of corporate personhood). The people could demand that the Constitution and the Bill of Rights be respected again and that would mean the end of empire, the Federal Reserve, torture, and the technological police state.
