Jun 26, 2016 (Brexit plus 3)
Much as I deplore politics and its corruption, and would love to stay out of it, we have little choice today. Plato famously remarked the great penalty for declining to get involved in government is that you end up being ruled by idiots or inferiors (various translations and mis-translations of this, from Republic Book 1, 347-C).
I would prefer to re-write it as: the penalty you pay for refusing to get involved in politics is that you end up governed by criminal, power-hungry, abusive masterminds. That’s largely the shift that’s taking place on the world’s stage today.
As the bullying might of communist Russia and China is slowly evaporating, and US imperialist power is brought down by the weakened dollar, a far more sinister force for global evil is stalking us. Globalism. Disguised as being for the good of all, it means the imposition of a planetary control system in which ordinary people will be as weak and docile cattle, fodder for the power-hungry globalist elite.
The issue was front and foremost this very week, when Britain shocked the world by suddenly opting to bale out of enslavement to the European “one world” model and go it alone. It took everyone by surprise, because nobody really foresaw it.
Certainly not The International Monetary Fund. The IMF is close to controlling the whole planet (intentionally). It acts like a global loan shark, exerting enormous leverage over the economies of more than 60 countries. These countries have to follow the IMF’s policies to get loans, international assistance, and even debt relief. Thus, the IMF decides how much debtor countries can spend on education, health care, and environmental protection. The IMF is one of the most powerful institutions on Earth — yet few know how it works.
The IMF wants slaves. Notice how they forced Greece to stay in the EU, even though nobody wanted that, least of all Greece. Letting a country slip out of their grip is the last thing they want, as the jaws of the trap close about us.
Catch this great cartoon by Ben Garrison:
It remains to be seen whether Britain will be crushed for her impertinence or whether her rebellious stand will create such turmoil that the globalists will be set back a full quarter century.
