Socialism, Privacy And Charity For The Powerful. Capitalism, Surveillance And Rugged Individualism For The Powerless.

Altnews editor’s comment: Our favourite rogue journalist contributor, Caitlin Johnstone, masterfully describes the status quo of the rule by the plutocracy we are all subject to today but fails to call the spade a spade.

So it is up to us to follow the (all that) money trail to try and determine who the architects of this trend and ambition to achieve absolute world power may be.

Unsurprisingly to some, at the top of this obscene pile of money we find some well known albeit secretive individuals and families who cleverly manage to stay out of the limelight time and time again but their wealth and their power is immense.

In fear of being branded a conspiracy theorist by the (some very well paid) detractors, we are not going to name names here suffice to say that unsurprisingly these same individuals and families are also the driving forces behind the oft hinted at New World Order (#NWO), who also lobbied for and financed the #UN and who, unsurprisingly, also own and control the wealthiest and most powerful multinational corporations such as the #MilitaryIndustrialComplex, #BigMedia, #BigBanks, #BigPharma, #BigChem, #BigAg and #BigFood. Their tentacles reach into the deepest recesses of our world and seem to have just about everyone in a stranglehold.

But let’s see what colour Caitlin has to add:

In the US’s “Phony Wars,” the Military-Industrial Complex Is the Only Winner

Altnews editor’s comment: While the article correctly identifies the #MilitaryIndustrialComplex as the primary beneficiary of the spoils of the US’s #PhonyWars and provides much verifiable background information in support of the hypothesis, the astute observer cannot escape the conclusion that, when you follow the money, most of the corporations that make up that Military Industrial Complex are in fact owned by the same small group of investors who also deploy their other investment vehicles, like #BigMedia, #BigPharma, #BigAg, #BigChem, #BigEnergy and #BigFood, to steal every last penny from people everywhere and deprive them of their hard earned wealth while keeping them suitably hypnotised,  brainwashed, drugged up and suffering from ill health, with, as the planned endgame, to gain absolute power over every human being, nation and state in this world under the guise of the #NewWorldOrder.

Overseas, the United States is engaged in real wars in which bombs are dropped, missiles are launched, and people (generally not Americans) are killed, wounded, uprooted, and displaced. Yet here at home, there’s nothing real about those wars.  Here, it’s phony war all the way. In the last 17 years of “forever war,” this nation hasn’t for one second been mobilized. Taxes are being cut instead of raised.  Wartime rationing is a faint memory from the World War II era.  No one is being required to sacrifice a thing.

Now, ask yourself a simple question: What sort of war requires no sacrifice?  What sort of war requires that almost no one in the country waging it take the slightest notice of it? Continue reading “In the US’s “Phony Wars,” the Military-Industrial Complex Is the Only Winner”
