People politically on the left often claim, that the ruthless, brutal and militaristic behavior of our economic elites is simply a natural consequence of the whole capitalist system.
Many Christians believe, that the elites´ war-mongering has it´s origin in the deadly sins of greed and envy. People always want more than they have or need, while still envying their neighbours for their land or resources.
And then, there are those who argue, that it is lust for power in and of itself, that drives the current elites to those unprecedented new lows of barbaric means to obtain it.
First, the elite ‘masters of the universe’ including bankers, multi-national corporations, and the entire capitalistic structure that participates in creating much for the few and little for the many. There is no sophisticated philosophical justification for this: the powerful do what they do, because they can. The goal of power is power, getting it, keeping it and defending it. It’s not rocket science. And might makes right.
True, power can be like an addictive substance, like an adrenaline kick. And true, the capitalist system allows the power-greedy to accumulate the means to increase their power.
And also true, many people within the system are purely driven by greed.
But from what I have seen and read in recent years, there seems to be a bit more to it still than those reasons. And this little bit more are ideologies, belief-systems. And those belief-system make the current elites far more dangerous and less capable of reason, than ordinary greedy, envious and addictive people would be.
It is ideologies which can make evil look good. And when the powerful look into the mirror in the full knowledge of what they have done to the world, in the light of their ideologies, they see something very different from what any of us would see.
Those elitist mass-murderers will justify their hold on power and the means they have to use for it with some “higher good”.
Some of our elite movers, shakers and thinkers believe they need to “save the planet”.
These are the people behind the global-warming-myth. This myth has for several years now already been scientifically discredited by practically all the available facts. There is no when and no if about it -
human beings and their industrial or agricultural activities are not responsible for any large-scale warming or otherwise climate change.
The sun is responsible, together with other natural and mainly cyclical phenomena.
Although the facts are clear, and our political and economic elites are very much in the know, human induced catastrophic “global warming” renamed now as “climate-change” is still being propagated to get popular support for a couple of very different aims.
Besides the money to be made on the international financial markets through the carbon-trades futures, the other agenda is the so-called “need for population-reduction to combat the catastrophic consequences of human over-population”.
The existence of human beings in large numbers, not the way they live or feed, house and clothe themselves, their very existence is a thorn in the sides of western power-elites.
As Alexander King, elitist thinker and founder of the “Club of Rome” wrote:
In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill … All these dangers are caused by human intervention and it is only through changed attitudes and behavior that they can be overcome. The real enemy, then, is humanity itself.”
Those who have furthered the global-warming agenda in recent years are the same elitists who were once behind the resource- and food-shortage teachings in the 1970s and are still pushing the peak-oil agenda at the present time.
Most prominent then was said “Club of Rome”. Many of it´s original members can still be found very actively working on the very same lines in other world-organizations today.
The “Club of Rome” was
the Elite Think Tank behind Zero Growth, Sustainable Development and Global Warming. Many Rockefeller-CFR organization members like Dick Cheney and Kissinger are members of “The Club of Rome”. Originally this group was organized in 1968 by the Morgenthau Group and the majority of Club of Rome executives were drawn from NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization). During the period 1968-1972, “The Club of Rome” became a cohesive entity of new-science scientists, Globalist, future planners and internationalists of every stripe.
The “Club of Rome” is famous for promoting the idea of “Limits to Growth” like in a 1972 book modeling the consequences of a rapidly growing world population and finite resource supplies.
Now, the name “Morgenthau” sounds familiar to all those who know about German history. The “Morgenthau Plan” at the end of WWII proposed to turn Germany into a purely agricultural country, while at the same time banning the supply and production of efficient fertilizers.
After loosing large parts of it´s agricultural and some of it´s industrial base in the east to Poland and the Soviet Union, millions of German refugees had been driven out from those areas in the now much smaller territory of rest-Germany. As a consequence of that and without sufficient fertilizer to increase yield in the fields or without the ability of trading industrial products to buy food, the German population could no longer be sufficiently fed.
The implementation of the Morgenthau-Plan therefor also implied inadvertently the starving of large parts of the German population.
Only after a couple of years of severe hunger, the Morgenthau-Plan was abandoned and replaced by the “Marshall Plan“. And Germany was allowed to rebuild and recover.
Recently we have heard about another “Morgenthau-Plan” in connection with a project of international bankers and American law-enforcement to punish or blackmail all non-American banks and countries doing any business with Iran, starting with Venezuela.
Others among the current power-elites and their intellectual think-tankers believe they need to further human “evolution” and create a “new man” or even a new human species, calling themselves futurologists.
Some futurologist scientists actually plan to insert a couple of new and enhanced chromosomes into human embryos to do that. If those so created embryos would actually be viable is another question.
But those real come to life Dr Frankensteins sure are trying hard.
Ethicist Richard Hayes says in an interview about “Human Genetic Engineering”, a topic he has been investigating for a while:
What is the significance of artificial chromosomes?
Germline engineering in which the only goal is to change a single gene is technically feasible today. But to engineer a child for more refined enhancements, many genes would need changing and current techniques are too crude.
One solution is to build an artificial chromosome that contains all the necessary genes, organized in just the right way. Artificial chromosomes have been successfully tested in mice and in cultured human cells. The cells divide and the chromosomes are replicated intact. Now, human beings have 23 pairs of chromosomes and an extra, artificial chromosome pair would create 24. If you wanted to have the benefits of the artificial chromosomes passed to your children, you could only mate with someone who carried the same artificial, 24th chromosome pair.
One of the key characteristics of a species is that members of the same species can only breed with each other. So you see where this is going. In effect, we’re talking about the possibility of creating a new human species, perhaps within one or two decades. Few people outside the science and biotech community are aware of this.
These Frankensteinian laboratories, where mice and men are supposed to be “improved” are brought to you by the Pentagon, elite think-tanks and Corporate America.
Together they still seem to be working on the goals and “visions” of a bunch of 19. and early 20. century British elitists like Bertrand Russel or his associates. Russel wrote in 1953 about “The Impact of Science on Society”
“Gradually, by selective breeding, the congenital differences between rulers and ruled will increase until they become almost different species. A revolt of the plebs would become as unthinkable as an organized insurrection of sheep against the practice of eating mutton.”
John Campbell´s essay “The Moral Imperative of Our Future Evolution”, is quoted by Daniel Taylor:
“We should not imagine that people will just dabble in their evolution. Another generation will fan auto-evolution into the all-consuming endeavor of the intellectuals, scientists and economists. The resources of the world probably will suddenly be shifted to this enterprise. Remaining “humans” will realize that they have been displaced from their former privileged status as the masters of destiny.”
Campbell is Professor at the University of California.
His fellow intellectual, Professor John Glad, comments on this:
“Campbell’s projection of rapid, small-group-directed evolution is at once heartening and depressing. Greater, even open-ended, intelligence is awesome to contemplate. On the other hand, how sad it is for those “living fossils” who constitute the mass of humanity – humanity, at least, as we know it today.”
Behind all these “auto-evolution” visions and plans for a “new man” seem to lie a real disdain and possibly hatred for and even fear of the real, existing mankind.
There is an occasionally even publicly stated belief among the elites, that humanity is not good enough as it is, it cannot improve itself from within, at least not in what the elites see as an “improvement”. Something new and “better” must be “created” according to their own “god-like” image.
If, however, genetic engineering doesn´t produce the desired results in time, there are still other methods usable to “improve” mankind.
In his book “Mind Wars: Brain Research and National Defense” Bioethicist Jonathan Moreno lays out a frightening scenario where various Pentagon agencies with DARPA leading the charge, have been funding neuroscientific and biological research in the following areas:
Mind-machine interfaces, also called “neural prosthetics.” Living robots” whose movements can be controlled via brain implants. Research has successfully been carried out on “roborats” and “robodogs” for mine clearing and other dubious purposes. “Cognitive feedback helmets” that provide commanders or their medical surrogates the ability to remotely view an individual soldiers’ mental state.
MRI and fMRI technologies for what has been called “brain fingerprinting” as an interrogation tool or airport screening for “terrorists.” So-called “non-lethal” pulse weapons and other neurodisruptors for deployment in global south or “homeland” cities as “riot control” tools. “Neuroweapons” that use biological agents to stimulate the release of neurotoxins.
Research into concocting new pharmaceuticals that inhibit the urge to eat, sleep, suppress fear, or repress psychological inhibitions against killing.
William Sims Bainbridge, a top figurehead in the Transhumanist movement considers these scenarios absolutely great and joyous prospects:
“Techniques such as genetic engineering, psychoactive drugs and electronic control of the brain make possible a transformation of the species into docile, fully-obedient, “safe” organisms.”
Still others among our power-elites and “great thinkers”, convinced like the elites before mentioned of the inert and incurable deficiency of mankind, believe that humanity cannot rule itself, and therefor democracy is out, since it would be nothing but mob-rule.
We need wise “Philosopher-Kings” to be ruled by, so say the neo-con followers of Leo Strauss.
Those wise rulers would organize the state or all of human society according to the visions of the old Greek philosopher Plato.
Plato´s “Republic” is one where nothing is left to chance, all work, all political acts and all private life are planned and organized to the slightest dot. The State decides who is allowed to marry and to breed, which children are allowed to live and which should die. All classes are immutable, all information is concentrated at the top and filtered down on a need to know basis.
But for the Neo-Platonians who have adopted the vision of Plato´s “Republic” the filtering of information means also salting it with lies and deliberate deceptions. Lies are considered “noble”.
And in order to create a world for the neo-platonian “Philosopher-Kings” to rule, the elites of today and would-be feudal lords first need to create enough chaos to destroy the old world and make a new in their own image.
This, of course,while pretending to be based on secular reason, is actually taken from religious esoteric mythologies:
The old world must be destroyed and left in total chaos. Out of this chaos a new world is shaped by god-like beings.
Elites of this color are sponsoring any and every separatist group in the world, real and false-flag terrorist acts, violent religious, political or racist fanaticism, economic bubbles and busts, artificial resource and food-shortages.
They do everything they can just to create chaos, hunger, desperation, misery, murder and mayhem the world over.
They do these things to make sure that peace cannot “break out”.
For peace must be under their control and exclusively according to their conditions.
What ties these different elite-philosophies together is the very simple and very firm belief, that some people are better than others. They have the rights to life and the “pursuit of happiness” while everybody else might be granted a license to life by the elites, if they are lucky and useful for said elites, if not, their life is considered a waste of resources.
Most people would consider such a belief-system coming straight out of hell, literally or just symbolically. And the world proposed by this kind of belief-system seems to be literally “hell on earth” for most everybody.
Wherever these beliefs come from, they are not reality-based.
All the “reasons”, those elites use to justify their mass-murdering policies among themselves are exclusively based on unsubstantiated beliefs. All so-called reasons, I repeat,not only the new-world-out-of-chaos-theory, but all the other ones as well, are entirely faith-based.
Even the over-population-myth can be countered by recent observations that after a country has fully industrialized and the majority population lives in peace and reasonable prosperity, population-growth will steadily decline until it even becomes slightly negative.
Recent observations also show, that the countries with the largest and most secure and prosperous middle-class are also the countries which have a high level of environmental protection and like Germany for instance are even able to clean most of it´s former environmental messes. Air-quality has improved in recent years, rivers and lakes are clean again for fish, swimming and even drinking.
Grass-root movements over all borders or ethnic and religious boundaries in civil-rights, social justice and peace-movements have proved that mankind is quite capable for a peaceful and cooperative self-rule. The decentralized structure of the internet has shown that productive cooperation does not need to be organized by a large power-center. It also has shown that cooperation does not have to be coerced, but is natural and voluntary. Often this kind of online cooperation gets a lot of extremely productive work done (just think of the open-source-soft-ware-community) without any monetary rewards in exchange.
But the western elites stick to their centuries-old dogmas of a deficient humanity, lacking in intellectual and moral potential.
Because the current western elites are quite obviously pseudo-religious-philosophical nut-cases, or you might also call them fascists.
But there is indeed a silver-lining to all this craziness.
Since the elites see the rest of human kind as so much inferior to them their megalomania has gone more and more out of control and out of reason.
Some of the elites have committed the ultimate crime of executing an elaborate plan of mass-murder on September 11, 2001. By doing so they have killed thousands of loyal citizens of their own country in front of thousands of TV-cameras, broadcasting the crime live to the whole wide world and to billions of observing eye-witnesses.
They were so sure of their plan´s brilliance, so sure of their own superiority and power over governments and media, that they believed that even in the whole world there would never be enough people to figure it out and come together with their findings, sharing them with one-another and others.
But the elites were wrong.
And where we go from here will be interesting to see.
