Jan H. Kalvik & Robert David Steele: World War III has started – the public against the Deep State – everywhere – Deep State against Donald Trump – what is to be done?

World War III has started – the public against the Deep State — everywhere.

Robert David Steele, Visiting Norway in March, Answers Seven Questions

Robert David Steele returns to Norway 15. – 23. March 2017.

Jan H. Kalvik & Robert David Steele

Defense and Intelligence Norway, 10 March 2017

Robert David Steele, whom I recommended for the Nobel Peace Prize to a Norwegian Minister who is an accredited nominator,[1] is visiting Norway in March – he will be in Oslo 15-16 March, in Kirkenes and Tana Bro 17-19 March, and back in Oslo 20-22 March, departing early on the 23rd. I thought to ask him seven questions as a foundation for those considering what to make of his visit. While I do not endorse everything he says, I believe these hard words are a useful starting point for questioning many of our assumptions about our own national security policies.

Robert Steele: What Can Countries Do To Advance Peace?

Robert David STEELE Vivas

ORIGINAL:

Steele, Robert. “What Can Countries Do to Advance Peace?,Russian International Affairs Council, January 27, 2017.

What Can Countries Do to Advance Peace?

The international book-makers are among the most intelligent and successful observers of the human condition. Right up to the night of the election in the USA, their odds against President Donald Trump winning ranged from 20-1 at best toward 200-1 at worst. President Trump won by accident. The US electoral system was and remains rigged in multiple ways, and the election of Hillary Clinton was “assured.” My previously published Donald Trump, The Accidental President — Under Siege! A Soft Coup Rages within a Closed Rigged System… is free online and automatically translatable into Russian, Turkish, and Hindi, among many other languages.

Synopsis

The gatekeeper companies in the Data and Information Technology (IT) industries, both old and new, have betrayed the public trust at multiple levels – good people, no doubt, but trapped in bad systems. Their “Balkanization” of software, hardware, data, and spectrum has handicapped humanity and despite some stellar offerings in a micro sense, at the macro level they have imposed an opportunity cost against innovation, integrity, and intelligence of 90%. Open Source Everything Engineering (OSEE), when combined with holistic analytics and True Cost Economics (TCE) and placed squarely upon a foundation of human ethics and human thinking, can achieve the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) at 10% of the cost of the old predatory proprietary paradigm, in half the time or less. This is a major augmentation of C. K. Prahalad’s vision of “the fortune at the bottom of the pyramid,” (Prahalad) and the only means by which we can achieve “Inclusive Capitalism” (Rothschild).
