The Ultimate Goal of the Bankster-led Political-economic Warfare Being Waged Against Us Is . . . ?
http://www.opednews.com/articles/The-Ultimate-Goal-of-t...

As economist Michael Hudson points out, the European debt crisis is really the product of financial warfare instigated by big banks. Yes, these banks are engaged in warfare against the rest of society. What's going on in Greece is exactly what's going to happen in America very shortly. Why? Because in every industrialized country, the big banks are in the process of offloading their bad debts onto governments. They are then forcing these governments to sell off national assets so that the bankers can be paid what they consider to be their due. (For more about this, see the linked video at this web site, about Greece being a dress rehearsal for the US.)

In a nutshell, what it says is that the world is being prepared for the kind of "neo-feudalism" that these banksters (intent on ever more completely becoming our masters and lords) intend to implement. And so it is that America is in the early stages of being subjected to the same type of plundering as Greece and Ireland.

As Hudson explained in 2008, what these banksters and their cohorts are really trying to do is to roll back the Enlightenment, roll back the moral philosophy and social values of classical political economy and its culmination in Progressive Era legislation, as well as the New Deal institutions that embody such legislation. They're not trying to make the economy more equal, and they're not trying to share power -- just the opposite: Their aim is to implement a kind of pre-industrial and even feudal socioeconomic system. What this means is that our economy is being pushed back and put on the road to debt peonage. Hence forth, most manufacturing will be done in Asia and Europe.

What we have here, therefore, is indeed a "Road to Serfdom." It is just the opposite of the government sponsorship of economic progress and rising living standards that we had until Reagan took the White House. Rather, it's the dismantling of democratic government and the dissolution of regulatory agencies, for the purpose of creating this new kind of neo-feudal system. (Don't miss Max Keiser's discussion of this neo-feudalism on the Keiser Report. Just scroll down until you see a picture of economist Michael Hudson on the linked video screen.)

1. there's my phrase: "neo-feudalism"
glad it's catching on, and I hope we can stop it.

8. But, only because they haven't been able to effectively train apes
Sadly, now we're going to be treated to "Planet of the Banksters", "Beneath the Planet of the Banksters", "Escape from the Planet of the Banksters", "Conquest of the Planet of the Banksters", and "Battle for the Planet of the Banksters".

5. "Top Rat" philosophy....
Edited on Sat Jul-16-11 10:12 PM by JHB
...a sort of more comfortable "survivalism" than the "guns and canned goods in the woods" variety.

These are the people who grew up in a world fraught with potential cataclysms: nuclear war, overpopulation, scarce resources, environmental degradation, The Rapture, and so on... and instead of working to fix the problems, they thought "if we're all rats on a sinking ship, be the Top Rat." And if the full catastrophe doesn't pan out and we're not in postapocalyptic Mad-Max World, then they're still golden. And for the religious ones, it's the End Times, baby! Worrying about the future isn't just pointless, it's blasphemy!

OK, that may be a hair too glib, but it ain't far enough wrong, either.

6. Why?
I can't seem to grasp how anybody could be that greedy and sociopathic. Is it mostly because of character flaws in individuals or because of an economic system that encourages unbounded greed by default because there is not much to really limit or stop it?

10. it's also a product of elite thought
If you google "Malthusian theory" and "Hegelian" you will find some of the deliberative thoughts that have influenced the elites such as the Bush family. The realization that resources are finite has even led them to dabble in eugenics and experimentation with *thinning the herd*.

Are they thinning the herd now, hoping that millions of people will die off?

Are they re-distributing opportunities for profit?

Are they redistributing ownership of land and resources?

Yes, probably.

11. I suppose that's part of it.
We probably need an economic revolution like France or Russia to "get their attention." ;)
