The paradox of the current global crisis is that for the last five years, all relatively responsible and independent nations have made tremendous efforts to save the United States from the financial, economic, military, and political disaster that looms ahead. And this is all despite Washington’s equally systematic moves to destabilize the world order, rightly known as the Pax Americana. The contradiction between the concept of escaping the crisis, which has been adopted the US elite, and the alternative concept – proposed by Russia and backed by China, then by the BRICS nations and now a large part of the world – lay in the fact that the politicians in Washington were working from the premise that they are able to fully control the globalized world and guide its development in the direction they wish.
Phi Beta Iota: The US elite (not the politicians, they merely serve the elite) appears certain it can weather the collapse of the USA. They do not appear to have understood the lesson learned by the elite in NYC in the 1920’s in relation to public health — infectious disease does not spare popes, presidents, or the wealthy. The mass migrations now being used as a weapon are a form of disease that will spawn other diseases. The “fifth column” of individuals who are trusted by the elite is growing — green on blue, a phenomenon best charted by Dr. Jeffrey Bordin in Afghanistan and now appearing in Jordan and France and elsewhere — is going to be a major aspect of socio-economic life in the next decade. Absent a vastly more coherent approach to global reality, the USA — where 40% of those over 16 are not participating in the labor force; where unemployment is 23%; where over half the wage-earners now earn less than $30,000 a year — is headed toward a violent revolution and waves of criminal activity as well as waves of insanity, some of those waves violent and fatal to innocent bystandings including the wealthy.
