“The war is not meant to be won, it is meant to be continuous. Hierarchical society is only possible on the basis of poverty and ignorance. This new version is the past and no different past can ever have existed. In principle the war effort is always planned to keep society on the brink of starvation. The war is waged by the ruling group against its own subjects and its object is not the victory over either Eurasia or East Asia, but to keep the very structure of society intact.” — Orwell, 1984.
“[War] eats up the surplus of consumable goods.” — Ibid.
“And it’s all very interesting, though a bit on the technical side, I mean about how the power plant is a power plant in name only since in fact it’s gonna be one big giant … big giant capacitor. And that, instead of generating power it’ll sort of be — sucking power, from Gotham City, and storing it … stockpiling it, sort of? Which, unless I’m being dense, is a novel approach, I’d say.” — Selina Kyle, Batman Returns (1992).
I heard Economic Ninja say something interesting this morning. He said that creating green energy consumes fossil fuels less efficiently than traditional energy; and a light bulb came on. What if that’s the point?
Gregory Mannarino has long been preaching about the plan to annihilate the middle class. I have to admit being a little pleased with myself for figuring this out on my own during the Obama years; but I did not understand until Mannarino made it clear that this effort is not limited to the US and has been in the works for a very long time.
In 2019, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s chief of staff Saikat Chakrabarti admitted that the purpose of the Green New Deal had nothing to do with the climate, but was rather to change the economic system of the US, making it align with “social, economic, racial, regional and gender-based justice and equality and cooperative and public ownership.” Since he was sufficiently unaware to admit it, I doubt he saw the purpose behind what he believed the purpose to be, which is power. Communism is always about power; it has nothing to do with the welfare of the people (or the planet). Stalin understood this, and made it plain.
Repurposing fossil fuels to create energy less efficiently — or not create energy at all — accomplishes several objectives: it forces people into common housing, it denies people mobility (freedom) and it deprives people of the opportunity to improve their lot in life, i.e. kills entrepreneurship. In other words, it ossifies a two-tiered society, wherein the few rule the many. And, once their CBDC is in place, they will be able to track every one of your economic transactions, to limit them to only those that are currently approved (for anyone, or for you in particular), and even to deny you the ability to spend your money at all. Are you using too much energy to stay warm? Have you eaten more calories than we think you should? Sorry; your money doesn’t work for that just now.
I don’t think many people today think of evil as a tangible thing, or are ready to suspect their government or their fellow man of being evil; but evil is a tangible thing, and what our government is doing is evil. And government is simply people, the people in charge; and if government is doing evil, it is only because the people in charge are doing evil. And if the evil being done is this complex and this premeditated, then the people in charge are not doing evil out of ignorance. They have embraced it, and they are fiends.
Absent divine intervention, I believe there is too much inertia behind this movement and too much ignorance and lassitude among the people for the people to turn this around. The hammer is going to fall. The point of writing this and posting it publicly — besides putting a target on my back — is to put the idea out there, so that when the stuff hits the fan some people will have an inkling of its nature, its purpose, and how it came to be.
