BILDEBERGER DOCUMENT: Silent Weapons For a Quiet War
‘Energy is recognized as the key to all activity on earth. Natural science is the study of the sources and control of natural energy, and social science, theoretically expressed as economics, is the study of the sources and control of social energy. Both are bookkeeping systems; mathematics. Therefore, mathematics is the primary energy science. And the bookkeeper can be king if the public can be kept ignorant of the methodology of the bookkeeping.
All science is merely a means to an end. The means is knowledge. The end is control. Beyond this remains only one issue, “who will be the beneficiary?”.
In 1954 this was the issue of primary concern. Although the so-called “moral Issues” were raised, in view of the law of natural selection it was agreed that a nation or world of people who will not use their intelligence are no better than animals who do not have intelligence. Such a people are beasts of burden and steaks on the table by choice and consent.
CONSEQUENTLY, in the interest of future world order, peace, and tranquility, it was decided to privately wage a quiet war against the American public with an ultimate objective of permanently shifting the natural and social energy (wealth) of the undisciplined and irresponsible many into the hands of the self-disciplined, responsible, and worthy few.
In order to implement this objective, it was necessary to create, secure, and apply new weapons which, as it turned out, were a class of weapons so subtle and sophisticated in their principle of operation and public appearance as to earn for themselves the name ‘silent weapons’.
In conclusion, the objective of economic research, as conducted by the magnates of capital (banking) and the industries of commodities (goods) and services, is the establishment of an economy which is totally predictable and manipulatable.
In order to achieve a totally predictable economy, the low class elements of the society must be brought under total control, i.e., must be house-broken, trained, and assigned a yoke and long term social duties from a very early age, before they have an opportunity to question the propriety of the matter. In order to achieve such conformity, the lower class family unit must be disintegrated by a process of increasing preoccupation of the parents and the establishment of government operated day care centers for the occupationally orphaned children.
The quality of education given to the lower class must be of the poorest sort, so that the meat of ignorance isolating the the inferior class from the superior class is and remains incomprehensible to the inferior class. With such an initial handicap, even bright lower class individuals have little if any hope of extricating themselves from their assigned lot in life. This form of slavery is essential to maintaining some measure of social order, peace, and tranquility for the ruling upper class.’
The banking systems and bond holding pension funds of mature industrial/post-industrial economies such as Germany, France, and the US-uk foolishly lent vast sums to laggard states such as Greece and Ireland: assuming that these countries would join the party and generate profits through growth to service and repay the loans advanced. Then reality intervened.
Debt is a claim on future work. Work is dependent on current and future energy resources. Energy is going to get exponentially more expensive, thus frustrating these delusional debt claims. Greece exemplifies this dilemma. Greece doesn’t have a problem that can be solved by austerity, it has an energy dilemma whereby it cannot afford to fuel any future growth…..Ireland and Portugal are next. Then everyone else, including the uk, the US, China and Germany. Peak Cheap Oil.
All these Austrian, Monetarist, Keynesian explanatory models of ‘capitalism’ are hilariously redundant. They were all predicated on endless abundance of cheap energy and commodities which are now revealed to be finite. The ‘apocalypse’ is the literal unveiling of this morbid reality.
Expect ever more frantic exhortations to believe in the ‘one true Capitalist religion’. It will amount to nothing. Get ready for un-growth, de-growth and the ecotechnic response to collapse. That’s the optimistic option. If you’re a depressive realist: get ready for global war.
banks and governments can print money. they cannot print energy.
money is a proxy for the exchange of energy through work.
economic growth in a debt-based capitalist model is predicated on cheap energy. always has been.
all these vast debts were advanced on the assumption that economic growth would continue to be fuelled by cheap money (energy).
that’s not possible, hence the worldwide QE shenanigans.
‘my grandfather rode a camel, my father rode a camel, i drive a Mercedes, my son drives a Land Rover, his son will drive a Land Rover, but his son will ride a camel’
Rashid Bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Second Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates.
these debts cannot be paid, hence the absurdity of Greece taking on new debt to pay old debt. it’s called bankruptcy.
the structural flaw in all this is ‘cheap peak oil’ and it’s mirror ‘peak cheap credit’.
there is no fix, no solution: it is a predicament that will have to be lived through.
Dmitry Orlov was very prescient to figure out that the USSR and the USA were essentially the same: industrial growth junkies.
