Some very strong and strange signals coming out of sources that have a track-record of being accurate.
1) Banks have created an economic doomsday scenario. Greece is going to default on 20 March, and will eventually get to renounce 80% if not more of the debt that its government very unwisely took on (never mind Goldman Sachs high crimes, governments are supposed to have a modicum of intelligence and integrity).
2) This is going to lead to two consequences, not one:
First, the banks have huge amounts of “insurance” obligations, an entire underworld of banking in which these obligations to cover one another’s bad debts are not counted as liabilities — when these all come due, banks crash and no amount of government bail-outs with printed or digital counterfeit money is going to save them.
Second, the combination of riots and economic collapse among hundreds of millions of previously “rich” Europeans with the collapse of the banks is going to present some governments with “internal control” issues. In the USA, the plan under Bush-Cheney was the Civilian Inmate Labor Facilities (CILF), incarcerating the unemployed on agriculturally-productive land. That plan has now been abandoned as unscaleable and unenforceable — the number of pissed off citizens with guns may have something to do with the realization.
And now for the scary part: how do you handle a population of what Henry Kissinger likes to call “useless eaters” who are also armed? Enter the Forced Population Reduction Program (FPRP). Originally to be implemented with neutron weapons (allegedly killing people without destroying infrastructure), the new new thing is VX gas that is heavier than air and make an entire city die with even less environmental damage. How the deaths are “sold” is no doubt being worked on. Testing this in South Africa or the Congo first (they are a party to the program), then simulating a “black plague meets SARS” transfer to Detroit or a couple of southern states, can be anticipated.
Below are a few links. On the edge, no question about it.
Last item is a scholarly paper (it just came out) which argues for making “permissible” the killing of babies after birth. Abstract: Abortion is largely accepted even for reasons that do not have anything to do with the fetus’ health. By showing that (1) both fetuses and newborns do not have the same moral status as actual persons, (2) the fact that both are potential persons is morally irrelevant and (3) adoption is not always in the best interest of actual people, the authors argue that what we call “after-birth abortion” (killing a newborn) should be permissible in all the cases where abortion is, including cases where the newborn is not disabled.
