I personify three classes of people in the world.
- G is all governments and consists of all levels of management decision makers including the political class currently out of power but striving for decision-making roles. Their self-interest focuses on defending their best interest, building political power to influence others, and making a good income and mostly in that order.
- F is the financial class from local bank managers up through all the moneyed hierarchies that run through the highly competitive financial industry. It includes the highly competitive billionaires that team with, guide, and support that industry and often tamper with how G operates. The self-interest of F is to stay glued to the process of dominating the supply and trading of money such that those at and near the top wield power to promote making more profit by governing both the money supply and lower order bankers to their benefit. Their primary competitors are national and international financiers and top bankers, but they use G and P to accomplish their goals.
- P is the public, aka non-G and non-F, aka the rest of us. Our self-interest is to better ourselves and our way of life. It used to be that. Nowadays, it’s planning for survival from something we can only imagine; we tend to fear the worst because hope wilts as we observe events foreign to the American culture.
F and G compete but more importantly they depend on each other. Evidently they are now hip-locked by fear, which is the worst kind of motivation because it spreads and others are drawn in. Among elected officials in G, they fear that F will withdraw financial support in favor of political competitors. And F promotes such thoughts in order to get more mileage for the buck. Among financiers at the top, F fears G will cause economic disaster. IOW unplanned financial disaster. The top dogs work together to alleviate each other’s fears.
Consequently, G and F conduct an undeclared war on P. Oh, not open warfare as we think of it. You’ve heard it called cronyism to make it sound bad but correctable, to hide the extent and importance. But war nevertheless, because G can only gain power with F if it’s done at P’s expense. It slates us to lose before we know we’re at war or what’s happening behind closed doors.
The signs of war:
- G expands endlessly. Top leaders have morphed the rule of law into the rule of man, political man. (Check into how the legislatures and chief executives weaken the constitution and support anti-Christian legislation in this nation founded and made prosperous by Judeo-Christian principles).
- Laws are purposely written as general requirements, which empowers bureaucrats to interpret and make the rules for P to follow as laws. It has turned bureaucratic power into the law of bureaucratic rule. (Except in one appeal procedure limited to a particular court, most federal courts can’t overrule the bureaus and legislators are ineffective to help with appeals. Ask the California farmers who can’t get irrigation water. Or check out other bureaucratic overreach by the EPA et al.)
- G always needs more money, so they can be controlled by F in order to hold on to whatever power G has acquired. Print money? F will do it. Borrow? F can accommodate it. Need campaign cash? F can find a way. Who worries about legalities? Only P. When G and F work together, the power is automatically absolute enough for corruption, called cronyism today to hide the nature and extent and the role of participating big business execs. IOW, huge G enables huge growth of F, who return the favor with more financial support to further grow G. It’s a closed loop because the fight has turned global with enormous political and financial opportunity. F is armed, choosing dance partners, and getting organized for the long haul battle over who will run the world during the next few decades and lay groundwork for beyond that. (G grows weaker relative to F, because F doesn’t depend on P the way G does for supportive power. To compete with F more effectively for global influence, G needs P but has to victimize P to better fight F. It’s a paradox of vital importance to top level politicians.)
- It’s not to say that G and F don’t compete. They ‘fight’ to see who will be king of the hill. To integrate the global economy into one, politics has to follow when G wants to lead. That means that we shall see either One World Government with the politicians in charge. Or, we shall see One World Governance with the financiers on top. What’s the difference?
- One World Government is effectively the UN on steroids. You’ve seen how that works. Internecine warfare turns P into victims over here to benefit victims over there. Theft over here, gifts over there. Men don’t appreciate unearned gifts. Also, corruption defeats the political mileage that P expects from their representatives giving away the wealth created by P. (Neither G nor F builds wealth.)
- The UN’s efforts are a zero-sum game. Members won’t adopt the ideology of capitalism and the benefits of universal prosperity, which work to raise all boats as JFK phrased it. Universal prosperity works against the interests of individual members and member states in that G becomes less necessary and no one voluntarily gives up power. Power has to be taken or outweighed and individual self-interest religiously guards against both.
- One World Governance is F governing all the Gs in the world. Gs are expected to govern their respective countries according to the needs of F to balance global economic conditions into success for F. You see, F has one ideology, one measure of success. It’s to prevent financial collapse that might take down the informal structure of global F and the cooperation that has been integrated to dominate Gs. So, F has to manage and keep alive all the economies of the world. They do this by managing G with money made available or not available.
- Back to P. Everyone needs some power to protect and defend their self-interest. The best protection is more power/influence, so growing one’s power is natural. With G and F competing for power to overcome and then rule the other globally, it constantly reduces the power of P. Specifically, loss of freedom, endangered savings, weakened property rights, spreading of immorality, denial of religious practice, ever-increasing taxation, poisoning of middle class morality, G assuming responsibility for raising children, undermining parental guidance, nationalizing of education, and no end in sight.
The road looks clear to head this way. As globalism expands, F aims to eventually control each national G aka One World Governance. In the U.S., G will expand its power by nationalizing more state and local functions. Consequently, state and local power will melt behind doors closed to hide the corruptive results of individuals trying to seek federal jobs in order to retain power. As state and local Gs lose power, representative government evaporates, which means at the expense of the power of P. In the end, as F overpowers G, G will be forced to rule P in such ways as the pressure of F dictates. An ever-poorer peace will likely be maintained for P. Facing P, G has but one fear, revolution, so G does nothing more than is necessary to prevent it. At least that seems to be G’s operating model.
F has no interest in what kinds of government they deal with; dictatorships are okay. In fact, both F and G benefit from greater control over P. But that puts them at odds again. Without free economies, F eventually hits the wall of little return from stable, little-growth, zero-game economies being governed by central planners. But F and G have already found a new way in America. G central planners tell large corporations what to produce and F helps the companies. That way, economic disturbances can be blamed on the producing companies rather than the planning bureaucrats and elected officials. Thus, a potential cause of revolution can be suppressed.
For the past hundred years, under the influence of F, our society has been shifting toward more direct control by G. Now, it has arrived with more direct control of G by F. P has little influence and nothing to say. G keeps what’s happening under wraps by dominating the F-enhanced media and F and G buy off elected representatives such as members of Congress, state legislatures, and governors. Money rules and the source is F, the beneficiary is G, and the victim is P.
The American past has been migrating in this direction since 1913 following the establishment of the FED and passage of the 16th and 17th amendments (income tax and election of senators by popular vote). Our present time has been under preparation since then and we are now ruled by the bureaucratic side of the political class, G, and dominated by the big money class, F.
Closed door decisions keep P uninformed because the press is no longer free. To quote FDR again, “In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet it was planned that way.”
I describe above the end-result of plans made daily throughout G and F and behind closed doors. P stays home to look for better ways to improve life, but G and F are hyperactive both planning and already interfering with that very thing.
