Many of us are watching the struggle between the unions and the states trying to get out of debt. The real battle is about power.The winner of the debt struggle will havethe power, control . As this fight rages we are watching what is going on in Libya. That crisis is making the price of oil skyrocket. Whomever controls oil, energy supply and prices had power. Those that have no control of oil will suffer as their way of life is destroyred and their liberty diminished. The post below was wrtitten a few years ago but what it proposed is indeed happeneing today and its about power for some and loss of freedom and liberty for others and its about today’s America. SHAW
The death knell for freedom has been tolling for some time, and only now are people starting to hear it. It started tolling faintly, decades back, and has slowly progressed in volume, until today its tolling is impossible to ignore.
The United States of America—that “shining city on a hill”—had a good run of it, and made a gallant effort at establishing liberty for all. But as the old saw would have it, all good things must come to an end.
Liberty, after all, is an aberration in mankind’s history—a light that has flared here and there over the centuries, only to dissolve back into the darkness.
America is barreling towards becoming a bit player on the world’s stage, and its vaunted middle class—once the envy of the world—is on the verge of being eliminated.
For the good of the planet, for the good of Gaia. for the good of the collective.
Freedom is being replaced by servitude, capitalism by socialism, and property rights by “sustainable development.”
I’m not talking about something we need to be on guard against. It’s all already in place. It has been going on for quite some time, and it will continue to go on, at a greatly accelerated pace. We are at the “end game” point.
And the Globalists know it. Why do you think the Democratic (and many Republican) political hacks on Capitol Hill are so dismissive of the American people?
They are essentially putting on a “dog and pony show” for public consumption, while the final pieces for America’s defeat are slid into place. No, they are not worried about upcoming free elections.
To a great extent the Globalists own the mass media, the entertainment industry, our schools, and the Judicial, Executive, and Legislative branches of government.
Why should they worry?
Already, several generations have been indoctrinated, via our school systems, to value globalization and “social justice,” over personal responsibility and free enterprise.
They have been repeatedly sold the idea that they should, “Think globally, act locally.”
God has been demeaned, marginalized, and eradicated, at every turn. Our religions are, in many cases, a watered down and diluted mimicry of true spirituality.
The Globalists have come out from the closets, the woodwork, and from under rocks. They know that their time of hiding is at long last over. They are brazen about, and proud of, their anti-American/pro-global stance. Their arrogance and hubris is palpable.
Call them Communists, Marxists, Fascists, or Globalists—call them what you will, they are collectivists who despise America’s middle class, capitalism, and free enterprise.
They have been duplicitous, Machavellian, clever, and patient. And it has paid off; the trap has been sprung.
How did this happen?
America got hit high, and America got hit low. We suffered sudden catastrophic sneak attacks from without, and insidious long-term betrayal from within.
We were hit low by Alinskyesque “community organizers” in our streets, and propagandists in our schools. We were hit high by “think tanks” like the Trilateral Commission, the CoR (Club of Rome), and the CFR (Council for Foreign Relations).
They have divided us with special interest groups, vociferous “talking point” attacks, and identity politics. They have infiltrated our schools, and indoctrinated our children.
They have opened floodgates using the Cloward-Priven Strategy—overwhelming our judicial system, banking establishment, and border security.
They have encouraged corruption and greed at the lowest, to the highest, levels of government.
They have twisted and perverted the U.S. Constitution.
They have promoted and encouraged anything and everything that would help bring America down.
They intend on taking over the planet, but first they needed to destabilize, and then destroy, the United States of America. Because we were a powerful bulwark of freedom, we had to go first.
And to a large extent, go we have.
This article, will focus on the contributions made by the CoR and Agenda 21, to America’s defeat.
