smart as a box of rocks

SMART AS A BOX OF ROCKS
One World Government conspiracies give all other far more legitimate conspiracies a bad name ( which is the reason these have no shortages of publishers, along with the equally preposterous UFO/Nazi Fifth Reich claims ).  If I was the central bank and I had unlimited funds at my disposal, I certainly would be more than willing to have a small branch unit full of unpaid summer interns making loans to wanna-be businesses that were printing such drivel as UFO bases from the moon, Bavarian secret society One World Government, corporate control of Republican politics and all the rest.  Not only would this be a source for profit, a testing ground for any future managers and a way to diversify my paper to profit activity, I could handily confuse everybody by misdirecting them.  If you are the true Man Behind The Curtain, you certainly would be silly if you didn’t manufacture a phantom controller to hide your control.  The Man Behind The Man Behind The Curtain ( and in some cases, Behind Another Man Behind The Curtain ).  If everyone thinks private corporations rule the world, then no one stops to question that your bank which prints the money also makes the loans to that company, in effect controlling the corporation.  And if the corporation takes its profits ( which are tax deductible ) and runs a candidate, even though it seems that the company runs the politician, the bank actually calls the shots ( not in a micromanagement type of way, just in the macro sense.  Which is enough.  If both the Republican and the Democrat BOTH want central bank control, with a strong welfare state ( corporate welfare, anyway ) and lots of overseas military occupation, all you need to do control wise is see that they stick to the script.

But here’s the thing about absolute power.  If your great grandfather was intelligent and ruthless enough to establish the original family power, chances/odds are good that by the time the reigns were handed over to you the only thing needed was for you not to screw anything up.  You only need to be smart enough not to squander what you have.  But eventually, some descendent DOES screw it all up, and usually it is because genetics alone do not determine how smart you do things.  Environment plays no small part.  And if you were born with a silver spoon in your mouth, your environment is no longer a dog eat dog, cutthroat competition inducement to perform at the top of the game.  You get soft, and this affects the quality of your decisions.  If things really don’t go your way, on top of decadence you also have the problems of hubris and delusion.  You think you are as smart as your enterprises founder, but in reality you are dumb as a box of rocks ( each succeeding generation has a greater chance of regressing in intelligence as wealth and power save all offspring, there being no Darwinist selection process allowed to take its course ).

At the beginning, the Central Bank kicked ass and took names.  A few CongressCritters were bribed and the central bank was born right before Christmas ( Merry Christmas, America!  Here’s a little Hump You! that will  self destruct in a hundred years ).  Right away, they managed to slaughter a third of a million peasant soldiers to increase their profits.  Soon after, they got a whore elected to the Presidency who confiscated all the gold and overnight devalued the dollar 40%.  Followed by another war, in which hundreds of thousands died to introduce a global Oil Empire and to forevermore guarantee corporate profits by federalizing everything and keeping us in perpetual war footing government spending.  Things almost slipped out of their grasp, but somehow they managed to convert our manufacturing economy over to a mercenary-for-Saudi-Arabia economy.  That worked pretty good, and hey, let’s give the devil his due.  We paid for the privilege of surviving the end of US Oil Dominance, but mostly at first the bankers charged us a very small percentage of our wealth for that miracle.   Of course all good things must come to an end, but none of the old wisdom has been preserved in the family dynasty of our controllers the central bankers.  They think they can either stop our decline, or failing that control the decline.  But being dumber than a box of rocks, they can do nothing but make things worse.  The Fed was founded at the apex of our manufacturing boom, which was quickly boosted by the boom in oil.  It came to prominence by winning the fight for the global oil supply.  Even when the domestic oil supply started to contract, there was enough global oil to sustain the power.  But once Saudi oil started to decline, it was Game Over.  You don’t stay in power substituting paper for energy.  You merely stretch out the time before collapse.  Now, those in charge could be fully aware of this and be kicking the can down the road out of limited options.  But by all indicators it seems they are planning on going down with the ship.  Probably because they think the boat won’t capsize until they limp into another foreign harbor.
*
But the whole world is linked.  All paper currency is being devalued and all oil is being used up as quickly as possible.  I’m not sure they believe the last man standing wins, but again, they act as if they do.  It is business as usual, which means exploit the resources as needed ( and with population growth, it is needed more and more and faster and faster ).  And business as usual is not One World Government.  Sure, it has been a one world power colonizing everyone for profit, but this isn’t a government entity.  You might WISH for a superior government, which implies there will be a safety net for you still, but the reality is the entire world is Africa.  We are all being exploited and will soon be dying from lack of resources.  No one will save you, because you represent a parasite to them, not a profit center.  Sorry, we are all worthless eaters.

NEW Bison Blog CD For Sale
I've got an actual professional to achieve and format all the old blog on a CD-ROM.   It turned out really nice- much nicer to read than online. It does cost $10 plus shipping, figure another $4 or so, which might be a bit on the higher side.  But I think I'm worth it.  My cut will be about $5.  That isn't too much to ask for over five years of work and nearly two million words of pure brilliance.  Here is the link to order:

    1. I love writting about all things survival, but you do need to keep in mind WHY I switched from the Bison Blog to this blog. Sometimes, I don't have all that much to say about the subject. I felt I was getting stale and not keeping up standards. With this blog, I feel free to veer from the subject when I have nothing else to say. Just be patient, I always return to The Dark Side.

      You don't get it, Lord Bison is better than Kunstler and way more real than that prick over @ archdruid report. James has been keeping it real for years, which I can say has been much longer them both, overstuffed shirts that they are.

  3. I disagree with anonymous, I loved this post. I agree with just about everything you said, up to the present. I think they do believe that last man standing wins, and they're willing to kill off the rest of the human race to achieve that. One World Government will just be an orderly and efficient means towards that end.

    Quite frankly, I hope you're right and I'm wrong, because if I'm right, it means years of surviving without buying or selling anything, without a fixed abode, evading an organized hostile government, in addition to all the stages you foresee needing to survive through.
