Who’s in charge of the West? [i]
With this article, I want to dig deep into the power structure of the current Western hegemony. My goal is to develop a comprehensive understanding of how the Western power hierarchy is composed, what their goals are, and where they come from.
Since I need to go through many various topics I will try to simplify as much as possible in order to get everything into a reasonable size for this article.
This article is going to answer many very frequently asked questions, and since it is strategic in nature, it should be useful for a long time to answer questions that develop over time.
I didn’t come to all the conclusions on my own. I received approximately a quarter of the information from a person with very deep insights, who needs to stay anonymous. I have known this person for a long time, and he is absolutely trustworthy. I want to thank this person at this point very much.
I want to mention that I’m going to focus on the developments of the last ~250 years. Of course, we can assume that the developments around the creation of today’s empire dates back even several centuries more.
This article is the fifth out of a series of six. Hence, If you haven’t read the previous installments, I highly recommend that you go through the first four articles before proceeding:
I want to start by going through a few important historical events. I’ll touch upon them superficially and I’ll also add some comments.
After a brief history journey, we are going to jump directly into the question of what the “New World Order (NWO)” is, and what historical events shaped its development.
For millennia great powers have been struggling against each other for two key goals:
If you want to stay a great power, or expand your influence, you will need access to all resources necessary to sustain your country, as well as to make other small and middle-sized countries dependent on you. The resources don’t need to be located within your country, but you need to control them.
If you want to expand your sphere of influence or to take control of additional resources, you will need a strong military. You will only have a strong and functional military if you have access to and control over all the necessary resources to sustain and maintain the force.
If a great power doesn’t control other non-great-power nations militarily, then its goal will be to conquer these other lesser nations economically: Use them as markets to expand your own industrial production and production of all kinds of consumable goods.
Which in turn means that you as a great power need to take care that all other nations stay less developed than you. You don’t want to allow others to become self-sufficient or industrially independent from yourself.
Most geopolitical events and developments in the previous several centuries, maybe even millennia, can be explained by the struggle for resources and markets. Let’s put it bluntly: There are always a very few great powers that are struggling all over the world for control of the markets and resources of all other countries worldwide. Nowadays, at least since 2022, I’d say we are talking about the following countries:
All other countries worldwide are pieces on the chessboard of the abovementioned great powers.
If we take this into consideration, the following questions should arise:
What is a country? Who controls it?
Who controls the resources of a country?
If one country controls another country or its resources/markets, who actually controls these resources and markets?
Now, let’s go through a particular chain of events starting in the 18th century.
Rothschild: Mayer Amschel Rothschild. German Jew, born 1744 in Frankfurt, Germany. I want to start my explanations with him. As you maybe know, I’m absolutely not a fan of conspiracy theories. Even though my definition of a conspiracy theory differs tremendously from those of the mainstream media, I still take care to not work with such theories. The Rothschilds are a big sparkling carrot for everyone seeking a conspiracy. I’m not going to walk that way. I’m going to explain a certain methodology of transnational power of individuals and organizations.
The following short explanation is established history and you can read about it on Wikipedia. Moreover, I need to highlight that I did not chose the Rothschild example because he is a Jew. It absolutely doesn’t matter what religion or ethnicity he occupies. His story is simply relevant to explain several mechanics that will be needed to understand further explanations. There are numerous examples of Christian representatives of the finance sector.
Well, Amschel Rothschild was born in the Frankfurt Jew Ghetto, in a so called “Judengasse”. The Jews didn’t have many rights back in 1744, when he was born. One generation later, the Rothschilds became noble, managed to lift the status of the Jews in Frankfurt to the same level as all other citizens, and they possessed a network of banks in all important European countries. The big and interesting question of course is, how was that possible?
I’m not going through his biography here. If you are interested in the details, please feel free to search the internet. I’m going to name only a few important well-established facts. Amschel created a bank which lent money to a variety of people, including royals and local businesses. It took some time, but he established his contacts all over Europe and he lent money to all kinds of parties across Europe.
Especially to those who fought wars against each other. Napoleon was one of his customers. The British as well. One should note that the British and the French fought a war at this time against each other. Amschel had ten children and he tasked several of them with creating local branches of the Rothschild bank in every major European country. I’d argue that the first real international banking system was thereby established.
The Rothschilds profited tremendously from the Napoleonic wars. Against England, against Russia, in the “Wars of Liberation” against Napoleon. Rothschilds essentially financed all sides. A prolongation of the war was in Rothschild’s best interest. We can essentially say that Napoleon was their man. If you go through current conflicts, especially Ukraine, you can find a lot of parallels.
As a result of the Napoleonic wars, the Rothschild family spread all over Europe and established itself as the most influential “organization” worldwide. At least in the 19th century.
I will finish the Rothschild story here, and move on to the next topic.
The United States of America had a lot of potential in the late 19th century. Rich in resources. Vast territory. A huge population. Almost not attackable because of its geography. The perfect place to establish a new great power, and use it as a base for further worldwide expansion. The industrialization in America gave birth to another powerful family dynasty. The Rockefellers. But more about that later.
The First World War was another event where the financing of a war brought different countries into huge debt with private and state-owned financial institutions. By spending huge amount of non-existing money (debt), enormous amounts of resources were processed into military hardware and ammunition and destroyed on the battlefield. The United States managed to expand its military industrial production on a large scale. Selling and using these military goods in Europe triggered enormous money streams into the United States; into private and state-owned institutions.
Great Britain declined and America rose. Producing military goods in the United States and consuming/using/selling them in Europe made sense. While the Europeans killed each other and destroyed their industrial bases, the Americans could produce without harm and ship the goods to Europe.
The end of the First World War in Europe saw the end of large-scale industrial production of military goods. And with it, the large-scale money lending to the war parties by various banks. Since Europe needed to be re-built, industrialists had been busy as well, but the amount of money was not at the same level as it would be during war. Here we learn something important: Financial institutions are able to make countries (governments) dependent on them. I’ll go deeper into that later.
I would say the time between the first- and the second World War was the time of birth for the American Military Industrial Complex, the so called MIC. The scheme is not difficult to understand. When a war “occurs”, you finance all sides going to war and make governments spend enormous amounts of money on the MIC. It goes as follows:
All governments that go to war will take huge loans to be able to finance the upcoming war.
The financial institutions, either private ones or the corresponding “central bank” of each country give those loans to the governments.
The lending bank gets the money back plus the interest charges. From all parties involved. The winner and the loser.
The MIC gets all the borrowed money from the government. The goal is not to protect America. There is nothing to protect America against. Who should actually attack America? Hence, the scheme is to produce war material that maybe actually is good, but far more expensive than it should/could be. The difference between the production cost and the sales price is redistributed. A huge part goes back to both political parties in the US as donations. Which ensures that no war is missed. Another huge part goes into the hand of the families (dynasties), that own the American MIC.
The loans are paid by taxpayer money. Hence, the taxpayers are paying for the war, for the interest charges of the banks and for the profits of the MIC.
The Finance dynasties get their share, and the industrial/resource dynasties as well. Through the American political system, one can say that American democracy is definitely working, for the Finance and MIC dynasties. In every other country it would be legally correct to name the system bribery. Which leads us to several questions about American democracy. In further explanations I will call this scheme simply “The Oligarchy” or “The Western Oligarchy” for the sake of simplification. Note that it is not only an American Oligarchy, it is a Western one, since at least one major dynasty is from Europe.
In fact, this newly set up scheme ran dry after the First World War. At the same time, we can say that Europe became a powder keg after Germany had been humiliated, but not destroyed or conquered. A powder keg with the potential for a much greater explosion than that of the First World War. From my own history studies, I would like to propose the scenario that the rise of the NSDAP party and its subsequent seizure of power was financed and enabled by the Western Oligarchy. With the subsequent goal of igniting the abovementioned European powder keg. As we all know, it was done successfully.
I want to highlight here that I personally assume, but I might be wrong, that even The Oligarchy couldn’t imagine what the “German/Austrian Leader” would eventually do to human kind. I’m talking about the Holocaust.
What could have been the goals of The Oligarchy by igniting the powder keg “Europe”?
Destroying as much infrastructure and industry in Europe as possible. Hence, shifting most of the industrial production for the needs in Europe, while at the same time financing the re-building of Europe and earning a fortune by this. Ultimately, uniting all former colonies of the European countries under the leadership of one nation. The new host nation for “The Empire” and The Oligarchy. Remember, the unreachable land mass for enemies? The United States.
At least since the 18th century, the wet dream of The Oligarchy was to to seize Russia’s resources. With those, the rest of the world would forever be dependent on “The Empire”. I assume that the initial thought and goal of financing and enabling the NSDAP party was to defeat and conquer Russia, at least large Western parts of Russia (Soviet Union). Germany would have been heavily weakened and thereby an easy target for a subsequent Anglo-Saxon intervention and reaping of what was sowed. (Todays Five Eyes).
Things turned out different and the Soviet Union prevailed. Hence the hasty landings in Europe (Italy and France) to prevent the Soviet Union to get all pieces of the cake, prepared for reaping by The Oligarchy. The Soviet Union pushed also hard and fast through the Slavic countries, to secure them from falling into the “Western Empire”. Also taking a quarter of Germany, as agreed ultimately in Yalta. This scheme cost the Soviet Union millions of soldiers more than would have been be needed if there had been no race with The Oligarchy for taking parts of the European cake. NEVER FORGET! Everything is about markets and resources between the great powers.
Well, the results of the Second World War are known. I want to highlight here that Europe has been a powder keg anyways. At a certain point in time, it would have exploded without external intervention. But most likely with a totally different scope and scale.
Well, The Oligarchy did not achieve full world domination, which had been the goal, along with elimination of the Soviet Union. But The Oligarchy managed indeed to sustain itself for decades. How?
The Western controlled part of Europe had been destroyed. Exactly as huge parts of Asia and North Africa as well. It was a huge opportunity for The Oligarchy to earn incredible amounts of money for decades to come by rebuilding, reindustrialization, and saturation of the people with everything they needed and even what they didn’t need.
Even though the Soviet Union controlled also huge parts of the world, it was in a weaker position since it lost dozens of millions of people and also large parts of its industry, which had been transformed to war footing or destroyed by the Germans.
By immediately naming the new enemy and threat after the Second World War, the MIC also secured huge spending “forever”. Remember? Staging conflicts against “communism” all over the world, buying weapons which, under normal circumstances, would be an order of magnitude cheaper, distributing the surplus as donations to the political machine and to the dynasties.
The American people have pursued the American Dream ever since. And it was achievable for a very long time. Since 1918, the MIC utilized the pursuit of the American Dream by the American people to boost the economy to be able to generate even more money and power through the finance scheme.
It hasn’t changed from then until the present day. The tools of controlling the government and the people simply adapted to technological development. Moreover, back in the day, the American Dream was something real, tangible and achievable. Nowadays, the American people have been simply degraded to robots to lubricate the MIC.
Well, people Like J. Edgar Hoover were heavily engaged in creating an Agency that would mainly be engaged in controlling “Democracy” to bring “the right decisions”. At first called the “Bureau of Investigation” (BOI), it evolved into the FBI. By creating it in the years between the two World Wars, The Oligarchy was able to collect all the dirty laundry of the politicians, both in the government and in the opposition, Democrats and Republicans alike. With this compromising material it was possible to “sway” politicians’ decisions, in case the bribes (donations) were not convincing enough.
This scheme is essentially still active to the present day. The only difference is that the competencies have been divided between the newly founded FBI, the CIA, and several other agencies. Hoover’s legacy. With new technologies, it is far easier to control the government and the people. In fact, controlling the democracy, which, in essence, is ineffective due to this scheme.
Last but not least I want to name two American Presidents who tried to address the problem directly:
President Dwight D. Eisenhower warned in his farewell address 1961 about the Military Industrial Complex. The MIC.
President John F. Kennedy and even President Harry Truman (Founder of the CIA) wanted to change the CIA. Kennedy wanted to destroy it entirely and found himself dead several months later. Truman was sick of seeing what the CIA “Operations” branch has been doing during peacetime. It was not what he envisioned when he was setting it up. In fact, it is necessary to have such an intelligence asset, nevertheless not with a rogue (Oligarchy controlled) operations branch.
I stop my history journey here. It was my goal to show you several historical events which led, in consequence, to the birth and establishment of the dynasties which are ruling over the West nowadays. The dynasties which are essentially holding all countries of the so called “West” as hostages. Parasites in their bodies, controlling them. These are very few dynasties. As far as I can judge we are talking about five at the most. Of course, I will not name them here but with all the information I will provide, you’ll be able to find out on your own.
New World Order
New World Order. For many years it was a synonym for globalization and for some kind of a world government. But what is it really?
Henry Kissinger, one of the most experienced and influential living diplomats and former US Secretary of State called it an immense opportunity, more than twenty years ago. But what is it?
Since the fall of the Soviet Union something called “Globalization” spread all over the world. It is the interconnecting of most economies of the world. In fact, to make it short, one tries to produce goods at places where it is the cheapest. Hence, the whole world serves as a common market where everyone is in competition against each other to provide the cheapest prices for goods, so that other international customers will choose to buy in your country.
This would be regulated autonomously by market economy mechanisms, and overseen by the World Trade Organization (WTO). In theory it sounds good; in reality it has far more disadvantages than advantages for most of the countries worldwide.
But the fact is that the West pushed hard to establish for full-blown globalization because it would serve the West the most. And the West almost achieved it. Had there not be the fact that China and Russia rebelled after 2014 and decided to not follow the “Rules-Based International Order” any longer, we would most likely sit in a fully globalized world nowadays. But China decided to establish its own vision of an NWO and globalization, and Russia as well. That led to major disruptions, after 2018, in the global supply chains and after the “Corona Years” to the death of the globalization.
Now take this into consideration. If the West had succeeded with its plan to divide Russia and gain access to all of Russia’s resources, China would have folded instantly. There have been four attempts to achieve this:
Yeltsin, who enabled the Western effort to dismember Russia in the 1990s. The West tried that by inserting, training, and supplying Islamic terrorists in Russia’s Caucasus regions. This ongoing process was stopped and reverted when Vladimir Putin became President.
Ongoing efforts to turn around Russian allies located near Russia and to bring them into NATO. This involved terrorizing Russian populations in these former Soviet countries to a) induce Russia to attack them and b) to bring protest and conflict into Russia because of perceived weak Russian leadership. This would trigger large scale protests which would have been taken over as soon as success was in sight by pre-placed Western-trained puppet protest leaders. And then, doing again the same as was done with Yeltsin. Fighting bloody civil wars all across Russia and thereby making Russia fall apart.
That has been essentially the Western goal for at least 250 years. In fact, far longer, but my explanations started 250 years ago. If Russia and China folded or fell apart, the West would become the sole ruler over the whole world, since it would control almost all of the resources and markets and also be the unchallenged military power. This would usher in the New World Order, or the “Rules-Based International Order”. Now you might assume that the United States would lead this new world order. That’s entirely wrong. Never forget, especially if you are an American: Your only role in this scheme is to provide the military force to achieve the creation of the NWO, and afterwards to act as some kind of police force, when individual countries (Libya? Yugoslavia? Syria? etc.) decide to not follow the “Rules-Based International Order” (RBIO).
The Dynasties that control the finance system and the MIC, which are both hierarchically above the national governments, would use pre-established organizations to make themselves the undisputed rulers of some kind of world government. Which would have been the UN if Russia and China would have fallen.
Make no mistake, the attempt is still ongoing. The West is still pushing hard, with the destruction of massive numbers of Ukrainian lives, to destabilize Russia and trigger a revolution. Even though I see no chance of success, the attempt is not over.
But the question is how the international (West) efforts to create the NWO, to govern it after its establishment, and to organize its structure have been conducted? Many decades ago, as I outlined above, between the first and second world war, The Oligarchy decided to implement a plan to create the NWO. Some say this idea is 250 years old and started with the financing of Napoleon, who in this case would have been a useful idiot. I can neither confirm nor deny that.
In the following chapters, I’m going to briefly describe several organizations which have been founded by The Oligarchy to prepare the world for the NWO, and to govern it after its formation.
The Council of Foreign Relations
I’d say that the founding of The Council of Foreign Relations could be the birth of the attempt of the Western Oligarchs to establish an organization which would act above the government to promote the creation of the so-called NWO. Just make your own research about the creation of this organization, who the founders and famous directors were and what its goals are. Enough said.
Nevertheless, it is less international (Western) staffed but rather more American focused. Hence, the American Oligarchy, as opposed to the Western Oligarchy, uses this organization to develop and promote long-term strategic goals and strategies for the development of the NWO. Which, BTW, the government is not able to do, because of constantly changing interests in politics which doesn’t allow long-term strategic thinking and planning. It was established 1921, after World War One. See my explanations above.
One can consider this organization as one of the founding pillars for the organization and execution of the MIC and NWO scheme.
The next organization is the “Bilderberg Group”. Again, I won’t go into details here. Still, I’m going to mention a few important aspects. If the “Council on Foreign Relations” is rather an American focused organization, then the Bilderberg Group is a transatlantic organization. Officially, it was founded by Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands in 1954 in Oosterbeek, Netherlands. The name is derived by the place of the first conference, the Bilderberg Hotel.
Even though he is nowhere mentioned as a founding member, David Rockefeller was one of the most active participants of the Bilderberg meetings. He also has driven plenty of initiatives which later have been implemented. For example, the founding of the “Trilateral Commission”, which I will discuss later as well. Henry Kissinger, who is also one of the drivers of the NWO agenda has also been a very active member of this group.
Officially, it was founded after the second World War, to avoid the start of another World War. Annually, highly important and influential individuals of politics, military, industry, finance and academia are invited to attend. The agenda is always secret, at least in advance. And the “Chatham House Rule” applies, which means that no speaker may be quoted or recognized personally, or by the organization he is affiliated with. Which should ensure that all participants can speak out without fearing to be damaged publicly.
I could make assumptions about what is being discussed and how. But I will certainly not do that because there is no evidence. What I can do is to make several observations:
It is important to go through the list of participants of the three top-level NWO organizations. Bilderberg, Council of Foreign Relations and the Trilateral group. This can be done for every year of their existence and one can try to figure out which individuals have frequently participated in all of these three organizations regularly. I will not comment on this further.
Next, it is highly interesting to check the list of participants of the Bilderberg meetings and then check highly important political or geopolitical events concerning Europe within the following one-to-four years after the corresponding Bilderberg Meeting. I will also not comment on this further on.
The Trilateral Commission
As mentioned before, the Trilateral Commission was founded out of the Bilderberg Meetings by David Rockefeller and Zbigniew Brzezinski. If we assume that the Bilderberg Meetings were focused more on the transatlantic matters then the Trilateral Commission is the equivalent for the whole Western Empire:
I’ll give you the same advice to do your research, as I did in the Bilderberg section. Hence, look for the participants and compare with important geostrategic events within the next one-to-four years period.
I described now the three main public organizations which purpose is to steer the course of the implementation of the NWO. Of course, several lower ranked or subordinate organizations emerged out of the abovementioned meetings. Organizations where actual guidelines for the implementation of the globalization and/or the NWO are being worked out. Later, I will describe a few of them briefly.
The American Constitution
I’m personally a big fan of the American Constitution. It is, of course, one of the oldest constitutions of the world and it was created and written by the founding fathers in difficult times. Not only difficult but entirely different times than today. It was ratified by the states in 1788, and the U.S. Congress convened in early 1789.
Even though the original version is more than 200 years old, it has foreseen many circumstances that are still valid today. Circumstances that have not been foreseen initially have been added into the constitution later by amendment.
All in all, a very effective system. Especially since it defines the democracy of the United States of America and seeks to protect it. Many Americans did not read their constitution or they read it long ago in school and actually forgot what exactly is being defined. I recommend to you to re-read it again if you haven’t done so recently.
Well, let’s come to the groundwork of the constitution. The founding fathers had foreseen the United States to belong to the people. That’s why it starts with the following words: “We the people…”.
Again, the constitution and the “United States” belong to the people. “We the people…”.
And here is where the problems start. Benjamin Franklin (et all.) didn’t have Facebook. 😊
Facebook is a placeholder for all of the digitization of people’s lives. The smartphones which everyone has, all the controlled social media instances, and the connection of all of these data with government databases to track profiles of most people living on planet earth.
I don’t want to tell you here, again, that every single information you have ever digitized or every action you did with your smartphone is known and merged into a single traced profile on the databases of the various agencies. I did that already in Economics and Empires 3. No. I want to tell you that the same applies to every single politician and government member. At the state and federal level. Of course, at all lower levels of the governmental power structure as well.
And THIS is a serious problem for democracy. In fact, it makes democracy impossible. Why? First, we would assume that it is good to have oversight of our representatives. To avoid corruption. And within certain boundaries that’s true. Problems for democracy start to manifest when the eavesdropping of actual or emergent politicians and/or incumbents of important positions is being done with the sole purpose of collecting dirt against them. Which, undoubtedly, is actually being done in the worst possible situations for the affected individuals.
I want to remember here what happened the first weeks when President Trump was inaugurated. He was visibly forced to do a lot of things that he undoubtedly didn’t want to do. For example, firing several of his personally chosen cabinet members. If the highest authority of the United States, the President, is driven by blackmail, then neither the democracy nor the Constitution of the United States is in power. Remember, “We the people…”? That doesn’t apply any longer. Again, I’m a big fan of the American constitution and if you follow it, you do everything right.
Unfortunately, as already mentioned, it is not really in power. I will explain that in more detail later.
The people are no longer in power. The Oligarchy has entirely taken over. The preamble of the constitution could be changed, to be consistent into: “We, the Oligarchy…”.
Which brings me back to Benjamin Franklin (et al.). Even though the founding fathers had foreseen a lot which was to come, they did not foresee the technical abilities of mass surveillance that would emerge in the future. First, people like J. Edgar Hoover fulfilled that function with human resources within the BOI from 1924 onwards. Later, these responsibilities were spread over several new organizations, which eventually resulted in the totally automatic and digitized mass surveillance of everything.
And here is the most important point: Why is there not a Constitutional amendment to prohibit practices such as donations to politicians, or hiring of former high-ranking military officers into positions in companies which would be in conflict with their interests in their former role? Think of the MIC. You can amend anything in the constitution, but you can’t amend these things BECAUSE of these things. The people controlling the politicians would threaten the sitting politicians with revealing sensitive information (blackmail) to prevent such amendments from being enacted. This is the famous self-licking ice cream cone.
The US democracy is in gridlock and the constitution as it is, has not foreseen any mechanism to resolve this gridlock. Which, per definition, makes the USA no longer a democracy. And the people of the US are neither free nor in charge, nor do they enjoy liberty. The USA is de facto and partially de jure (because of the abovementioned gridlock) both an oligarchy and a corpocracy. It is NOT ruled by the people or by their elected representatives.
I will explain the connections later more in detail.
If all of this applied to the USA since ~1924, everything exploded on a massive scale after 9/11. September 11, 2001. The attack on the World Trade Center Twin Towers. The new laws and the old altered laws enabled the abovementioned full automated digital mass surveillance of essentially everything and everyone. Which marked the final nail in the US democracy and constitution’s coffin. The agencies that were established during and after the time of J. Edgar Hoover took over on behalf of the Oligarchy.
The agencies, or at least the operational part of them, are essentially controlled by the higher echelons of power. By the corpocracy or more, by the oligarchic dynasties themselves. I will visualize this connection later.
We can conclude by deduction that 9/11 has been a coup against the American people, the American democracy, the American constitution, and American freedom and liberty.
Who did it? The CIA? First of all, I have no idea who did it. And I highly doubt that the CIA did it, even though it profited immensely from it. A while ago, I interviewed Larry Johnson, former CIA analyst. He reached some higher ranks of responsibility; hence he knows some things about the CIA. At least, about the analytical part of it. He is firmly convinced that the CIA had nothing to do with 9/11. Even if I’m not qualified to agree or disagree with him, since I’m NOT a former CIA employee, I still want to agree by deduction with him.
Why? Well, first of all I AM qualified to evaluate the complexity of the 9/11 operation, carried out by Islamist Terrorists. Due to my former job, I had higher access to procedures and information about international logistics and air traffic. And even by the security standards before 9/11 I would conclude (take me as the “primary source/expert” on this) it is impossible that these attacks had been planned and carried out solely by an Islamist Terrorist Organization. The complexity of planning, coordination and execution is by an order of magnitude too high.
And even if it would be somehow possible, then the planning and the information collection would definitely have triggered one or another alert in the framework of the American or international intelligence community.
So, what is my assumption? And I want to highlight the word ASSUMPTION! I do indeed believe that Islamist Terrorists carried out the attacks. But I highly doubt that they planned and coordinated it. One needs to understand that the big international terrorist organizations all are controlled and maintained by intelligence agencies of certain countries with certain goals. Two goals are important:
In weak foreign countries, to destabilize and blackmail the governments to comply with certain demands.
In weak foreign countries, to justify external interventions to “fight terrorism”.
In their own country, to justify harsh laws, huge spending on security, and mass surveillance against domestic and allied people.
Of course, the organizations themselves seldom know that they are being used. The scheme is to lead them with inserted people who are influencing the organization and radicalizing them. A typical case of manipulation.
No, I don’t want to suggest that the CIA did this. I’m sure, but I have no evidence, hence à assumption: An Arab secret service (they are usually responsible for command and control of certain organizations) planned and coordinated 9/11. Not AGAINST the United States. Well, yes, against the people certainly, but not against the country USA. What does that mean? I personally assume that people in the higher echelons of power coordinated that attack with a foreign (Arab) intelligence asset in order to trigger the abovementioned coup against the constitution in the USA.
I’m sure a few rogue members of the “operations” branch of the USA were in the know, in order to prepare for what was to come afterwards. But I certainly doubt that the CIA as a whole, or as an organization, had been in the know. To come back to Larry Johnson, the CIA wouldn’t have been able to keep a secret of such scale under control. I certainly don’t see any big conspiracy about missing planes etc. during 9/11.
You can’t prepare all the detonations and hide all of the evidence without anyone, after so much time has passed, saying anything tangible. Yes, there are a lot of people claiming this and that. But nothing tangible has ever come to the surface. And it won’t. There is no American conspiracy here.
Why? Remember what I said. The Oligarchy is international (Western). It doesn’t care about America. It does care about what percentage of the world it has under control. And it will only be satisfied when it controls 100%. Hence, the Oligarchy, which is two levels in the hierarchy of power over the government, in fact on the top of the pyramid, managed this incident with international “connected assets”. To enable people under its control in the Senate, etc. to bring in the mass surveillance laws to consolidate its uncontested grip over the American Constitution. It succeeded. Leaks, such as those by Edward Snowden, from time to time reveal the scope and scale of these programs, resulting in the 9/11 coup.
Again, I have no evidence for the 9/11 section, hence it is merely based on my own assumptions and deduction.

Hierarchy of power
Now I want to present the first conclusion. The pyramid of power.
On top of the Pyramid, we have the Oligarchs. Who are they? I won’t name them here. But if you followed this article carefully, you’ll be able on your own to find out easily with the mentioned information. In fact, we are talking maybe about 4 or 5 family dynasties which are controlling the Oligarchic cycle scheme.
The Agencies are there to control all spheres of the pyramid of power, except the Oligarchy. The Agencies are controlled by the Oligarchy. The Agencies have been established gradually since at least 1924 by J. Edgar Hoover. Today we have a variety of 3-letter agencies with different tasks.
The goal of all of them is eventually to make sure that the ship called “USA” is steered in the foreseen direction. The strategic direction which is being defined in circles such as the three abovementioned ones, e.g., the Council of Foreign Affairs etc.
Hence, plans decades-in-the-making are being implemented here. Which the government is not capable of.
The Agencies are controlled by the Oligarchy and themselves control all echelons of power below the Oligarchy. Which absolutely includes the government as well.
The Capital, which is still controlling global finances, has several tasks:
To control all (Dollar) connected nations through debt.
To make foreign nations dependent on the Dollar, for control and American jurisdiction.
To manage and control, coordinate and govern gigantic accumulations of assets (Corpocracy). See funds like BlackRock etc.
In fact, the main purpose of The Capital is to assert and keep control over the accumulated worldwide empire and its assets. It is not about money. The Oligarchy has the ability through “The Capital” to create money and debt. Their wealth can’t be measured in money, since they are the source of money. It is measured in the degree of control that they have over the world.
I will talk more in detail about this later in the “The Capital” main section. Then it will be clear.
The Corpocracy is simply the accumulation of the big American based corporations that are operating worldwide. In fact, they are international (Western!) corporations. The Oligarchy is also international (Western!), which is very important to understand. The Empire and everything that happens is not caused by the American people. They are victims as well. It is caused by the international (Western!) Oligarchy, using the United States and its people (soldiers) as a battering ram against the rest of the world.
The Corpocracy consist of all the big corporations which are well known in the following branches:
Pharmacy and Health
I won’t name the corporations here. But in fact, they are controlled by “The Capital” and by the “Agencies”. Controlled, coordinated, and enabled.
The Democracy / Government
The Government is mainly, but not always as some scandals that reach the surface show, abiding by the boundaries of the laws and the constitution. The Problem is, as already explained, that the constitution can’t protect the politicians from the following three problems:
Big donations (bribes) from The Capital and The Corpocracy. Which leads to influencing the decisions away from what these politicians might have been elected for.
Promises of highly paid roles in “The Corpocracy” after the terms in power. This is especially critical, if we talk about people who change from an influential/powerful government role that is in direct conflict with the role which they occupy after their term. The classic example is the General who moves into the MIC after retiring. Should be illegal, because it is influencing his decision-making away from the will of the people (“We, the people…”).
If the individual can’t be bought, then the third method always works. Blackmailing with dirt, collected by “The Agencies”.
Hence, the government can only decide about domestic politics, which is not in direct conflict to the long-term plans of the Oligarchy. These are the boundaries of power of the Government.
Nevertheless, and I want to highlight this, every governmental institution in the United States is still extremely powerful. Both domestically and abroad as well. I only want to highlight that there are institutions that are even more powerful.
As already mentioned, we can conclude that the United States is still an extremely powerful country. And it has to be highlighted that my described schemes of money circulating from “The Finance” over the people and back to the “Oligarchs” can only work if there is a very strong groundwork in the United States. The hard-working people of the United States of America. Chasing the American Dream.
And here is the problem. The people are still there and they are ready to do the job. To rebuild America. To reindustrialize America. To do the heavy lifting. The problem is actually that the upper classes, described in the pyramid above, is no longer interested in the people. In former times, for example during the Cold War, politics needed to maintain a strong real economy and industry in order to keep the people satisfied. And it was more convenient to achieve this with mass production of military goods, to match the Soviet Union.
After the fall of the Soviet Union, it became harder to keep all workers at work. There was no longer any need for mass production of all kinds of military goods. China took over large parts of the industrial production. The service industry rose. Especially the big IT companies, which essentially have been enabled by “The Agencies” to establish themselves around the world for data collection. These intangible products became a big factor and driver of American growth, stock values, and GDP.
Here is the point: the wealth of the American people has always been maintained and cultivated to keep the money-cycling (laundering) scheme well lubricated and running. A good real economy, driven by larger wars that keeps the war industry (MIC) running, maintains the cycle. Hence, you need to:
Have two jobs.
Have no real social insurance. (Motivation to STFU and work).
Taking student loans for education.
Believe that you have a choice at elections.
Believe that you can achieve and live the American Dream.
The point is, your purpose as an American is, to generate with your hard work and with your free market entrepreneurship as much GDP, taxpayer money, debt, etc. as possible, to keep the war cycle scheme well lubricated and running indefinitely.
Note that most of you, however hard you might work, however many jobs you might have, will never be able to live the American dream. That’s BTW mathematically impossible anyway. Like with slot machines, there needs to be a certain quota of losers to be able to pay out the winners and the share for the provider. The number of losers of course needs to be by an order of magnitude greater than the number of the winners. That is the mathematical formula for the American Dream.
Essentially, it is a goal that you need to chase after, and during the process you are generating the whole wealth, taxpayer money and debt, that is needed to keep the war cycle running. Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing bad about wanting to become wealthy, owning a company or getting rich. That is perfectly fine. I’m no different.
There is only one big difference in the United States. In many other countries, apart from Western countries, the generated surplus of the governmental budget is re-invested to develop even more prosperity and wealth for the people. For example, by developing the infrastructure or education. Yes, there might be corruption as well and stealing but the scale differs dramatically. In the United States, it is being used to keep the war cycle running and re-distributing wealth to the upper echelons of the Pyramid.
Ask the American infrastructure, educational system (apart from the Ivy League), healthcare and especially the homeless camps all over the country.
Yes, since the Oligarchy realized that they won’t succeed in subjugating Russia and China, they changed the overall direction. It started in 2017 with President Trump. Note that he only implemented a system that was designed by others. But he believed in the system, which was helpful. The system is called “America First”. It is a system that seeks to re-industrialize the United States and lower dependence on China’s manufacturing capacities. It needs to proceed slowly, to not break up with China too early, which would have dire consequences.
The re-industrialization can only be possible by cannibalizing the allied developed industrial nations. Germany is one of the most prominent examples. It has been an industrial power house, but it needs to be deindustrialized if America is to reindustrialize. It is also simple mathematics. You, as the United States, are controlling a market of X Dollars. Your allies also have industrial capacities and are providing other markets with the value of Y Dollars. (Remember, I ALWAYS write that geopolitics is solely about the struggle for markets and resources between the great powers, nothing else).
To be able to increase one’s own industrial production, you will need access to more markets. Since most or all markets are already shared between the great powers and huge markets are forever lost to BRICS, the United States needs to do something else: destroy the industries of its allies. Taking over the abovementioned markets of Y Dollars. For example, through the Greens, which are Transatlantic enthusiasts, in Germany. You achieve two goals:
Taking over markets which were formerly served by your allies.
Winning the now-deindustrialized allies as markets, since they don’t produce their own goods any longer.
This essentially will help the American people to create a lot of new industrial jobs and revive former industrial federal states. Sounds good for the American people.
It does, and if America would accept its new position in the world as a great power among many, it can prosper this way. (As opposed to its allies/vassals, especially Europe). Since everything we learned in this article points to a heavy doubling down of assertion of global hegemony, it is highly likely that the United States might end up like the Soviet Union. Without ANY foreign meddling or intervention. I will explain this in another article.
That’s it for people and economics.
The next topic is the divide-and-conquer strategy WITHIN the United States, orchestrated by “The Agencies” and executed by “The Government” and “The Corpocracy”. Divide and Conquer of the people of the United States. What do I mean? Well, since “The Government”, which is a placeholder for the whole political system of the United States, is mainly “steered” from higher echelons of power, it really doesn’t matter which politician or which political party is in power.
There were times when it was not so obvious. There was an attempt to conceal the above-mentioned fact. Today, neither the Congress nor the political parties even try to hide the fact that they are synchronized. Yes, they try to deceive the people by endless debates about always the same questions:
And a few more topics.
Foreign policy is untouchable by politicians. The strategic planning of foreign policy and the decisions are being made at higher levels. See the organizations I have introduced in this article. Domestic politics as well, those that impact foreign politics. To put it simply, the ship needs to be kept afloat to be able to continue the war cycle scheme.
The Pharma Industry
I’d have to write a lot about this industry and its interconnections with all aspects of life. But it would make the article by far too long. I’ll write about this topic in detail on another occasion.
Front and Back Office
The following conclusion is also valid for all Western Governments.
The Democratic System and all of its individuals and leaders represent the “Front Office”, the visible part of the power system. It is in fact completely controlled and steered with the help of “The Corpocracy” and “The Finance” which in turn are controlled by “The Agencies”.
The people are manipulated by the controlled Mainstream Media and Entertainment industry. You have the big parties, which are usually participants of the abovementioned steering committee meetings (Bilderberg, Trilateral Council, etc.). The members are trained and recruited from schools and programs that are sponsored and coordinated by the abovementioned steering committees. Especially the WEF (World Economic Forum) programs.
If certain parties gain momentum that would endanger the geopolitical goals (criticizing NATO for example), they get immediately smeared like never before in the media. And if the people still vote for them, then “Agency” people get inserted/infiltrated to try either to change the course or to dissolve the party internally with various scandals. And if this doesn’t work, then the leaders get blackmailed into submission. Everyone has dirt hidden… And “information” is being collected constantly.
Hence, the job of the controlled “Front Office” is to distract the public from the fact that they are NOT living in a democracy, but rather in a controlled and manipulated democracy. Its job is to implement the decisions of the “Back Office”. The “Back Office” is comprised of the unelected and often unknown representatives of the Oligarchs in “The Corpocracy” and “The Finance”. And above. Again, see the abovementioned organizations.
A very famous representative of the “Back Office” in the United States is the interagency. Which is always there, no matter whose party is in power. Please forgive me, that I won’t write any names. I have my reasons. Everyone with a certain degree of intellect will be able to extract all necessary names after reading this piece.
“The Back Office” is in power in the West and it is never elected. By the way… I don’t want to be a hypocrite. The same applies to “the other side” as well, to the “non-western world”.

The Role of Debt?
There is a lot of discussion in the West about whether it makes sense to make debt or to not stimulate one’s economy. Create more debt and try to start programs that can make the GDP grow to then allow the debt to be repaid faster. That’s the logic. Programs like investments in infrastructure, education, and health. Or lowering taxes to directly stimulate the businesses.
Well, first of all, I don’t want to discuss in detail whether it makes sense to make debt or not to achieve this or that result. That always depends on many factors and circumstances, and there is no golden way. Above that, in theory we should also distinguish between domestic and foreign debt. In theory. If the Central Bank of the country in which you live is independent. Which, by far, few are. We will discuss this later.
Since this article is not a pure macro-economic article but the explanation about “Economics and Empires”, we will skip the general discussion of debt and analyze which role it plays in the context of maintaining the Western empire.
There is a certain quote which is attributed to Amschel Rothschild, who I introduced earlier in this article. It goes like “Give me the power to create money and I don’t care who makes the laws”. I want to say, straight away, I’m not sure whether it really was his quote. But it doesn’t matter and it should not be mixed up with the fact that he is Jewish, what matters is the logic behind this quote.
What does this sentence mean? I won’t go too deep into it, to not lose the non-economists of my readers. To make it a little more understandable for everyone, we can assume that banks create money by issuing loans to their customers. They expand the volume of circulating money in the system. The banks themselves take loans at the assigned central bank to be able to provide ever more money.
The customers can be businesses, private people, or countries. Here it becomes interesting. Governments can take loans from private banks or directly from the Central Banks. However, Central Banks should be by definition always independent from local governments. The government should not be able to exert influence over the policies of the Central Banks. They should be independent institutions whose task it is to maintain financial, price, and fiscal stability within the host nation. The strategies should be long-term strategies, and therefore not influenced by short-term political considerations. Therefore, the independence.
Nevertheless, they are NOT entirely independent. Most Central Banks worldwide are assigned to the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) in Basel, Switzerland. It makes sense to educate yourself about this bank. The BIS has a special status within Switzerland and is essentially an independent entity outside of the Swiss jurisdiction with own governmental and security organs. This bank is essentially coordinating the work of all assigned “national” Central Banks.
Considering this, we can conclude that the national Central Banks are NOT independent, although they should be. They are interconnected with the other Central Banks under the central influence of a bank (BIS) which has neither a national affiliation nor jurisdiction. I would like to ask you to re-read this sentence a few times and understand exactly what that means.
Well, the BIS was founded, like many other Oligarchical organizations, between the first and the second World Wars. Initially and officially, the purpose was to manage the reparation payments of the Germans after the First World War. The BIS was founded in 1930. One of the organizers of the founding of the BIS was Charles G. Dawes. I’d recommend to research a little of his affiliations with Oligarchs of the given time. There are some interesting coincidences. Exactly with one of the private banks, which also supported the foundation of the BIS. J.P. Morgan & Co.
Since the international reserve currency after the Second World War became the Dollar, the whole system became even more convenient. If the United States initially did not support the BIS idea wholeheartedly, it became a very comfortable tool for the Oligarchy after the Second World War. Hence, even after the conclusion of its initial purpose, managing the reparation payments of Germany after the First World War, it continued to operate, even to this day.
And since most Western countries after the Second World War, and most countries worldwide after the collapse of the Soviet Union, were forced to hold huge Dollar reserves, the debt scheme went full steam ahead. Most countries are forced to buy Dollars (currency reserves) to be able to participate in international trade, such as buying energy in the form of Oil. Therefore, and to finance growth and investments, countries usually take loans from their Central Banks. Remember the quote I mentioned above? Usually, the Central Banks will always allow loans. It will only adjust the interest rates according to the situation, to try to influence the debt making according to the stability goals.
I want to now make it very simple. By far oversimplified, but as I said I want to address all of my readers. Central Banks are, or should be, independent from national politics. Hence, as long as the national governments are in debt to the Central Bank, the Central Bank has power over the country itself. The more debt the country has with the central bank, for instance compared to the GDP, the more power the Central Bank has over the Government. One of many weapons in the arsenal of the Central Banks against the Government, is the sovereignty over the key interest rate.
Normally, that shouldn’t be a problem, since Central Banks should be independent and their goal should be to promote price and fiscal stability with their actions. The question is, what if the Central Bank is not independent at all, but bound to the international Central Bank system with its headquarters in the BIS in Basel? Where decisions are being made by an extranational entity.
Well, that’s a good question.
We can conclude the following:
The World Financial System works mainly with the Dollar.
The Dollar is being controlled within the United States.
Most countries worldwide are driven to promote growth, and in doing so they take on debt. Such debts being made at the National Central Banks.
The National Central Banks of most countries are interconnected with the other Central Banks, and ultimately centralized at the BIS in Basel, Switzerland. There is no real control over this organization.
Most affiliated (not direct) founders of the BIS in 1930 were American and European financial Oligarchs. The Western Oligarchs. It is fair to assume that they still control the BIS. I didn’t have the possibility to dig into that matter since there is no public material available.
Most people deem the ultimate super villain to be the United States of America. Or simply, “The Americans”. Which is entirely untrue. The Oligarchy is represented by very old European and American Dynasties. They control the institutions to control the Western Governments and Corporations.
The Democracy and Constitution of the Western States, including the USA, is a “Front Office”. It is a show to distract the public. The real policy is being made in other “eternal/constant” “Back Office” organizations.
Debt is one of the many tools, which I have introduced in this Article, to control Governments, Laws, and the People.
Note: “The West” is supranational. “The West” is a group of a few people, entirely controlling certain countries, that we see today as “The West”. These countries are NOT “The West”. The Oligarchs are.
Further financial tools of control
There are several more tools to exercise control over other countries with the help of debt.
I’m going to introduce briefly the two most important ones and then I’m going to answer a question that is often asked. What about BlackRock?
The World Bank and the International Monetary Fund
These two institutions have also always been two of the driving institutions to promote Western power worldwide. Essentially, with two tools:
Debt making. A very good example is Africa. Africa is being pumped so hard with loans from these organizations, that it will never ever be able to re-pay its debt. Even worse, the debt service and interest payments have, in many African countries, such a huge share of the overall governmental budget that development of these countries is impossible. And this is purposeful, as I explained in a prior article. To exploit Africa of its resources at far lower prices than world market prices.
The same of course applies to every other country as well, but maybe not to the same degree as in Africa.
Nation transformation. Countries only receive loans from these organizations if they agree to certain “reforms” which are integrating them deeply into the Western system. It is a kind of takeover of the sovereignty by the Dynasties that are controlling such Organizations.
What about BlackRock?
Many people think that BlackRock controls the world. I’m being constantly asked about it and being showed documentaries, where I should see that BlackRock controls everything. Of course, I can’t know it with certainty, but let me offer my opinion about this. The issue is a little more complex than showing some spreadsheets where one can see which shares BlackRock holds of which large international corporations.
BlackRock is one of many such “Investment Management” companies. BlackRock simply is the biggest of them all. Maybe with a reason, so everyone is concentrating their focus and research on the Elephant in the room. Again, there are many more such “Investment Management” companies. And if you go up the ownership/shares relations you will always end up to similar Oligarch Dynasties and Organizations.
What does that mean? It simply means that there is a system of numerous “Investment Management” companies, whose purpose is simply to manage the ownership/control relations of the few Dynasties over most international companies worldwide. It is being hierarchically organized in numerous sub- “Investment Management” companies and banks to obfuscate the real ownership and indirect control, always by the same people. If you do the research on the internet and, for instance, you check out Wikipedia, you won’t directly see the real relations but always the “Front Office” people (Managers) who are constantly changing.
Hence, BlackRock does not have ANY power, from my point of view; it only serves as a vehicle to legally execute some kind of control and possession over most international corporations. But it is one of many. I would not let myself be blinded by its size. The more problematic shares will be hidden in far smaller “Investment Management” companies, perhaps even offshore.
That’s the section. Period.
Union of Countries
To control as many people as possible with the least effort possible, one should always try to create single points of influence. For this purpose, it is in the interest of the Oligarchs to destroy national identities, values, traditions and ways of living worldwide. Instead, superior entities which would consolidate national countries under their own legally binding jurisdiction.
We are talking about Unions of countries, such as the EU or ECOWAS. These are only two examples.
Had the initially planned New World Order been implemented by the Western Oligarchs, such superstructures like the UN and the EU would be the single point of influence and governance over all countries worldwide. Not for America. No. For the Western Oligarchs.
Nevertheless, this scenario is, at least for the time being, averted.
How to bring the people to give up their identity, culture, religion, personal freedom, values etc.?
Here are some reminders. Through the control and manipulation of:
The World Economic Forum is a highly immoral organization. Its purpose is to develop and spread guidelines for the ruling of all countries connected to the Western empire. Today we are talking about a few dozens of countries. After the establishment of the New World Order the empire would have controlled the whole world. At this point the WEF would be the institution to develop the guidelines and ethics of governing the single “federal states” of the world, previously known as national states.
How? The WEF operates schools and institutions for the education (and indoctrination) of future Western leaders. A very prominent example is the “Young Global Leaders” WEF program. You will find a lot of interesting surprises. For instance, here.
What is significant for understanding is the following. They train and indoctrinate young people who eventually will be set for the highest political roles worldwide. See the list, mentioned above. Now, when thes people eventually are elected, they stop doing what they promised to do to their electorates. Instead, they switch to the WEF indoctrinated program and they pursue an entirely different policy. A pro-imperial and anti- “independent nation” policy. For one or two terms, and then they leave the office and go into a well-paid WEF sponsored think tank or into the corpocracy and live a good live, after having betrayed the own electorate. This is the highest form of meddling in the democratic process of “sovereign” (😊 😊 😊) nations possible.
I could go deeper into this issue, but it deserves its own article, so I’ll stop here. Especially interesting are issues like COVID, private property, etc.
Okay, I started this section with the words “highly immoral organization”. And yet, it is tasked with setting the (woke)moral guidelines for the whole world. That is a significant mismatch. Thankfully, this whole New World Order scheme has been averted, which leads me to the next section.
Do you remember, who Juan Guaido is? While the United States tried to overthrow and coup Nicolas Maduro, President of Venezuela, away from power, they prepared another leader in parallel, to seize power after Maduro’s fall. Juan Guaido. That was in 2019. Well, he was recognized by some 50 countries worldwide as the legitimate president of Venezuela, while he was sitting somewhere abroad in a small office and doing “NOTHING”.
Since the plans for global hegemony and the New World Order have been eventually and ultimately buried with the start of the SMO, we can make the following conclusion: The WEF is Juan Guaido.
It should provide guidance and leadership to all imperial governors and entities but now it will do nothing. Well, for some time, exactly as Juan Guaido, it will continue to serve for the governance of the still existing Western countries. But since it is likely that they will also gradually disintegrate and start pursuing their own national interests in the foreseeable future, nothing will be left of WEF other than Juan Guaido. Good.
Homogeneity against Heterogeneity
As stated before, the Western empire is in decay. Everything developed far earlier than I expected several years ago. The SMO accelerated the downfall by an order of magnitude.
And this leads me to another phenomenon, resulting out of this fast and, for some people, unexpected downfall. If everything runs properly, everybody is happy and is working together for the common goal. As soon as things start to go rapidly south, tensions and problems occur between the involved parties.
If everything runs fine, forward is the only direction where one wants to go. Everyone agrees to that. If things start to go bad, people need to come up with solutions and problem-solving capabilities. And this is where most people think differently. Some people might want to solve the problem with scenario A and the other people would want to solve it with scenario B. In a global context, there are most likely so many interest groups involved that there are not enough letters in the Alphabet to describe all possible scenarios for saving the empire.
And if you have so many options and parties involved to bring a decision, nothing will be decided. The empire will still run forward, as it always did (some call it doubling down), while the organs are fighting each other while trying to figure out the best way to save the ship.
The United States is the host of the empire. They are not THE Empire. They are the host of the Oligarchy. Hence, they would need to somehow bring decisions how to change course to adjust to the realities on the ground. It can be assumed that the Oligarchs are working hard in the background (Back-Office) to figure out what to do. While the Front-Office (American politics) is destroying each other.
When things run well, the Front-Office is homogenous (the so called Uniparty). It gives the perception that you have a choice, a democracy, and that your Constitution is still in power.
In times of crisis the homogenous Front-Office also starts to crumble because the Oligarchy doesn’t have enough resources to keep together every single party, politician, and situation worldwide at the same time. This leads to the transition of the Front-Office to a heterogenous state. Which is how a democracy should be, by the way. If the people have no choice, why go to elections then?
Well, there are several candidates now, not swimming in the mainstream, in American politics. And every time such a candidate wins, the Oligarchy will do everything to destroy him/her. And while doing this, damaging the official American democracy even more. Which eventually can only lead to a civil conflict when people entirely realize that democracy is gone. It doesn’t matter whether one likes President Trump or not. But if a system tries to jail a person only to avoid that he will become President through the will of the people, then we are in the final stages of the “pretend” democracy in the US.
If the Oligarchy doesn’t accept the democratic will of the people, then a madmen would propose to change the people. Unfortunately, this is what actually could happen. Changing the people. In all senses of the word/sentence. Without going further into details.
Well, the NWO was the Western Oligarch’s approach to control the world. And they did it very openly. They didn’t hide it much. Hence, it was well known to most other countries and services.
Which led to the creation of a countermovement, led by Russia and China. Started exactly with the taking over of power by President Putin in 1999. This countermovement has the aim of preventing the NWO from happening and, in contrast, establishing a free multipolar world. This was prepared covertly.
This has been done slowly but steadily within the previous two decades and it resulted in the creation of BRICS and its organizing of the transition to multipolarity. It is to be expected that BRICS will not only grow in terms of the member numbers, but I think its functionalities will grow as well. It will most likely exchange most previous western-dominated international organizations into a system which is controlled by everybody. I personally think that BRICS will replace the UN.
The UN will most likely share the destiny of its predecessor, the League of Nations. An organization, such as the UN with a council, making the rules for the world with the Veto right of each member can only work shortly after a major war when all victors are on the same page. The UN SC is, since the bombardment of Yugoslavia, no longer functional. The Soviets and the West still have been able to bring common decisions about some global issues since they respected each other at one time. Since the end of the Soviet Union, the West doesn’t respect anyone any longer. In its anticipation of global dominance.
Hence, if the West does not “vanish” then the UN will be replaced by the rest of the world. Most likely BRICS could take over many functions but in a more liberal way. Which means there are no law-creation mechanisms and therefore no Veto rights. It is a discussion board with equal rights and weight of voices of all members. Moreover, it is impossible that the headquarters are in one of the hegemonial countries. It should be in a neutral place or country. This goes for BRICS as well. I advocate for the creation of a future BRICS headquarters, if it happens, in a neutral place. Which excludes of course all countries of today’s UN Security Council.
I know, many people and analysts can’t imagine such an outcome yet, but one needs to think strategically. And it would be only another iteration out of several in the past. As I said, see the League of Nations. It had its weaknesses and the UN has weaknesses as well. Still, the humanitarian part of the UN needs to be maintained as long as possible. At least until similar structures are created in a successor organization.
We learned a lot about the mechanisms that the Oligarchy is using to control the countries of “The West”. Moreover, we learned what “The West” actually is. The few oligarchical dynasties based in the United States and Europe. And we learned how this oligarchy controls international finance and thereby most nation-states worldwide.
Most importantly, how it has attempted to transform people worldwide to abandon their values, cultures, and national identities, to get rid of national states. And thereby more easily control all people worldwide through fewer interfaces.
Nevertheless, this trend has been stopped and reversed. It is going backwards now. People worldwide started to regain, slowly and gradually, their national sovereignty. And I mean explicitly the American people as well.
The question is, how this global struggle for freedom and independence is working? It is easy to spell out the word “BRICS”. But what is actually behind it? Especially, how will the emerging finance system look, and how can it eventually bring down “The West”? And finally, what will the potential end of the West look like? These are questions I’m going to discuss hypothetically in the next, and last, part of “Economics and Empires” series.
