How did the big slide in America occur?
It occurred before our eyes without us even knowing it.
And we did it to ourselves. It wasn’t done without our help.
It began of course with the generation preceding World War II. This would be the generation of my grandfather, the World War I generation.
They truly lived in the America that was, the America that is currently referred to as racist and bigoted.
They would have no ability to survive in our world today. They would not understand it at all.
It was about this time – in the early 1920s – that our elites got together and began the grand transformation of America into a neo-feudalist state modeled on the feudalist state of old.
Our elites of course never liked the American experiment.
The American experiment gave regular people a window.
It wasn’t just a window for people to excel and live a good life; it was a window of revelation demonstrating to regular people that they were just as good as the elites.
The elites viewed this revelation as dangerous.
What really galled the elites was that the American experiment was working. Not only was America prospering, it was prospering above and beyond the old system of Europe.
This is why America became a beacon to the world. This is why people came to America.
To combat this, European nobility, particularly British nobility, began their attempt to rope America back into the feudalist mindset of thinking.
It was always the dream of Cecil Rhodes to get America back into the fold.
He was enabled in his quest by his newly enriched friends, the social climbing robber barons, and of course, his friends at Harvard University.
Harvard University has never been a friend of the American experiment.
From day one, Harvard has worked against average Americans and the idea that regular people are just as important as so-called elite people.
Harvard was more than willing to help Cecil Rhodes corral Americans back into the royalist fold.
Harvard embraced the Rhodes scholarship. Harvard embraces the Rhodes Scholarship today. When Harvard had its 350th anniversary, who did Derek Bok, the then president of Harvard, invite as a vital speaker to his ceremony? None other than Prince Charles.
Harvard is an elitist institution.
Its grandiose graduation ceremony where the wealthy elite congratulate themselves in opulence while homelessness (that Harvard engendered) abounds is a national embarrassment.
Harvard leads the Ivy League. It is the oldest school in the nation. It is older than our Constitution.
The Ivy League exists to train the officers of Corporate America.
Corporate America runs America and Harvard controls Corporate America.
Corporate America is comprised of not just corporations, but foundations, associations, thank tanks, major media, sports leagues, major entertainment, and of course the government.
It is that Corporate America fueled by Harvard University and the Ivy League that has engineered the demise of America.
As I said, they did it before our eyes. And with our help.
They did it through a series of crises that they created.
They created WWI, they created the Great Depression, they created World War II.
They have created every debacle since then.
These crises gave them the opportunity to further increase the power of the federal government, to take control of America’s businesses, to foment nonstop war abroad, to exploit other peoples, to dumb down the population, to weaken the population through drugs, gambling, cheap gossip and crummy celebrity culture.
They did it slowly and they did it in a very insidious manner.
Who would object? After all the leaders were solving a crisis.
To keep any skeptics at bay, their attempts at solving these crises were always wrapped within a cocoon of lies.
Subtle conments like Franklin Roosevelt being a traitor to his class was a pervasive lie intended to convince Americans that the government was on their side.
Of course, Franklin Roosevelt was not a traitor to his class at all. Franklin Roosevelt expanded the government through the Great Depression and World War II and in so doing transformed a small racket, the government, into a humongous racket from which his friends profited enormously.
His successors, particularly Dwight Eisenhower, fought a Cold War, created by the elites, engineered by the elites, to give us the current military industrial complex. That Dwight Eisenhower would warn us about the military industrial complex is a joke. Dwight Eisenhower was the military industrial complex.
How did our elites prosecute the Cold War?
First by creating a bogus bogeymen of communist domination, a force that had to be defeated.
Second, capitalist imperialism through exploitation and domination of other peoples. These efforts principally engineered by Allen Dulles with the full backing of Dwight Eisenhower, were anti-Christian and antithetical to the principles of the Founding Fathers.
The big lie was that Dwight Eisenhower was our friend. The big lie was Dwight Eisenhower himself.
Here was Dwight Eisenhower, a war hero, who won a war, World War II, that our elites were responsible for in the first place, who was now continuing that war against the evil Soviet Union.
The sad truth is that it was the United States that was the aggressive nation around the world.
It is so today.
All our major problems that we face today, the immigration from Central America, the enmity with Iran, the enmity with Venezuela can be laid at the feet of Dwight Eisenhower, our friend.
Ike overthrew Mosaddegh in Iran in 1953. His crime? He nationalized the British oil fields to give his people opportunities.
Ike overthrew Arbenz in Guatemala in 1954. His crime? He wanted to take a small amount of uncultivated land and give it to the peasants.
Ike played tricks and games with the Indonesians in the 1950s because Sukarno wanted to take a third way between capitalism and communism. Ike set the table. Finally in the mid 60s Sukarno was overthrown so that the United States could steal the assets of Indonesia for greedy pigs like Forbes Wilson of Freeport Sulphur. Our CIA helped Suharto, Sukarno’s replacement and our thug, kill 1 million of his opponents. CIA officers who helped Suharto are not ashamed of their actions.
The goal of our leaders has never been to help the people of the world or the people of the United States; it’s always been about exploitation for the purposes of profit making.
We didn’t go into Vietnam in order to help the people of Southeast Asia. We went into Vietnam in order to establish a presence, a beach head, in order to control the vital resources that the region possessed.
Of course, we already had the Philippines as a base from which to stage our operations, but Vietnam would give us a beach head on the mainland.
There were enormous assets in minerals, oil, and agriculture to be controlled. Latex, rubber, oil, gold and copper. The largest copper and gold mines were known to be in New Guinea.
It was vital that the United States control the region. This is how it was sold to my parents and grandparents. The thinking was that what was good for Corporate America was good for the citizens of the United States. That was another lie.
If we could save Vietnam, we could prevent the whole region from going communist. It was called the Domino Theory.
The problem with that theory is that it wasn’t necessarily so. The people there weren’t so much communist as they were nationalist. They wanted to control their own destiny. They wanted a piece of the pie. They didn’t want to be exploited.
Had we given them a stake in the game, we would have avoided the problems that we face today.
Of course, that was never the game plan of Allen Dulles and Dwight Eisenhower. Their goal was exploitation and domination. Why would we think otherwise? Dwight Eisenhower was Douglas MacArthur’s right hand man in the Philippines. It was plain enough for him to see that United States was never going to give Filipinos a stake in the game.
And so our elites moved in. They used every evil and malignant trick in the book to get their way. One of their favorite stratagems was to buy a dictator with money, have him spread the money to his cronies who would then control the population.
The United States owned legions of them around the globe. Machado, Batista, Trujillo, Baby Doc, Somoza, the Shah, Marcos, the list goes on and on.
This worked for a while until the people realized that they were being exploited.
Some rebelled, others never bought in from the get go.
One rebellion resulted in the Vietnam war.
Ike set the table there too.
The Vietnam war was tremendously damaging to the psyche of the United States and its people.
It produced a cynicism and distrust of our leaders which was well deserved.
It was more clear to the people that our leaders did not have their best interest at heart.
Concomitantly Americans began turning toward drugs. Baby boomers were young and willing to experiment. Disillusioned veterans were also willing to experiment. This was aided and abetted by our Central Intelligence Agency which helped import drugs into the United States. Yes, that’s right, our CIA made a deal with the drug lords in Southeast Asia to import drugs into the United States in exchange for them helping us in Vietnam.
Unfortunately, for the American people the weaker you are, the less able you are to fight back.
It didn’t take too long before the United States corporations began outsourcing jobs to these newly exploited nations.
What a winner for the elites. They now owned many servile countries around the globe to which they could export US labor.
They could not only break the backs of labor unions and the people of the United States of America, they could make a windfall of profits by paying people in Indonesia, Vietnam and the Philippines, not to mention Central America peanuts for jobs that used to provide living wages for United States citizens.
As a result, many people in the United States lost their well paying jobs. This occurred across all sectors of industry in the United States.
A line worker at GM in 1970 could make about $75,000 per year in today’s money without a college education. A current Starbucks barista can make $30,000 a year if they’re lucky.
This produced a general lowering of standards for the American family. When the family is weakened financially, the family is weakened spiritually. This then produces social ills such as crime, drug use, drug abuse, spousal abuse, child abuse, psychological turmoil and a lower level of education
These changes occurred slowly before our eyes.
To combat this, our government did not stop outsourcing of jobs, nor did it make any serious attempt to curtail the drug trade. Those were money makers for the elites.
Our government gave us Band-Aids. They gave us gambling. They gave us cheap gossip. They gave us celebrity culture.
If a patient is in pain, a good doctor tries to find the root cause and fix that. A good doctor doesn’t give morphine and walk away.
Our government gave us morphine.
In addition to these worthless Band-Aids, the government permitted corporations to continue their ravaging of the American workplace.
Chief executive officers and their henchmen were permitted to control the board room so as to enrich themselves wildly beyond anyone’s dream as far as compensation packages were concerned. Not only did they give themselves exorbitant salaries and golden parachutes, they also awarded themselves millions of shares of stock. In essence, they raped the shareholder.
This continues to this day.
The focus then became to get rich,and most of the baby boomers being young got suckered into this movement.
The elites took advantage of our greed and desire to be rich in order to fuck the American republic.
We did it to ourselves.
We were blind.
This is why Oliver Stone made the movie Wall Street. He wanted to demonstrate the sickness in American society, what was wrong with American society.
We all watched Wall Street and thought it was a great movie, but it was a movie. We were busy making money and dreaming of getting rich, so we continued along our merry way.
As we moved through the 1980s and into the 90s we were seduced by Ronald Reagan, his successors and the concept of free trade. We became even more anti-communist. We fully bought into the evil empire that was Russia.
We didn’t see outsourcing of jobs as a bad thing. It was all sold under the lie of free trade. Free trade was looked at as anti-communist and anti-elitist, not for what it was, free imperialism.
Plus – the media controlled by the elites had thoroughly demonized the labor unions as corrupt.
We didn’t see the good in the Teamsters, only the bad.
We wanted the Teamsters gone.
Free Trade was embraced.
We didn’t see the damage that free trade was doing to the United States.
It was only when political correctness came into being under Bill Clinton‘s administration that we first began to get an idea that we had been had.
One could start to see where the elites were heading with all this.
Never to be out done the elites cleverly distracted us with the World Trade Center bombing. Once again we got roped into believing that yet another enemy of America was attacking us.
We responded by going whole hog into the Middle East. We never asked any questions. It was clear that these Muslims were attacking us because they didn’t like our way of life. We never asked what they would know about our way of life. We just bought the lie.
Many Americans buy into this lie today.
Am I losing you?
We now live in an Orwellian world. The elites lie with impunity. They rig elections openly.
The apotheosis of their lying nature finds itself in the coronavirus pandemic. From the beginning the elites have lied to us every step of the way.
Legitimate criticisms are censored. Flat out lies are told.
The COVID-19 crisis is being used to reengineer society, but not for the betterment of man, but for the economic benefits of the rich.
Our elites, our crony capitalists, hide behind Karl Marx and use him as a shield.
They have no desire for a grassroots socialism.
Oh, no, what they are after is a much bigger game – fascism.
Welcome to the New World Order.
We did it to ourselves.
