TEOTWAWKI - The End of the World as We Know It
It's everywhere if you look. The warnings about war, nuclear war, world war, a big war to end all wars. The U.N. head honcho issued a Red Alert recently regarding the possibility of the Big One. You even see it in the oligarchy corporate media. We recently had people in Hawaii bending over to kiss their asses goodbye. It's real people.
World Socialist Website has a report concerning a warning in the Economist magazine,
"the influential London weekly described by Karl Marx over 150 years ago as the “European organ” of the “aristocracy of finance,” has devoted its latest issue to discussing “The Next War” and “The Growing Threat of Great Power Conflict.” Its lead editorial opens with a chilling warning:
In the past 25 years war has claimed too many lives. Yet even as civil and religious strife have raged in Syria, central Africa, Afghanistan and Iraq, a devastating clash between the world’s great powers has remained almost unimaginable.
No longer … powerful, long-term shifts in geopolitics and the proliferation of new technologies are eroding the extraordinary military dominance that America and its allies have enjoyed. Conflict on a scale and intensity not seen since the second world war is once again plausible. The world is not prepared."
"The world is not prepared."
Ain't that the truth. Then again, how does the "world" prepare for such a thing.
Shouldn't it be more like, "the world better stop this insanity NOW".
I've often thought about whether or not the ruling class would try to wage a major war with Russia and China (because if it's one, it's going to be all) in this the 21st century. It's seems so insane and the potential results are so dreadful, one part of me says they wouldn't dare. But we're only 73 years removed from WWII and 73 years is not a lot of time in the human experience. If they could do it then, they could do it now. The human race has not evolved since Truman lit up Japan with Little Boy and Fat Man. Many people are still alive from that time, it's not like it's ancient history.
Of course the Economist, being the “European organ” of the “aristocracy of finance,” goes on to practically beg the United States to double down on the Project for a New American Century (PNAC), and exactly what they're warning about. WTF?!
"Rather, the Economist urges the United States to develop the “hard power” to defend itself against “determined and able challengers,” presenting the sociopathic argument that peace is best safeguarded by America’s ability to utterly destroy its adversaries."
The premise of the special report is that urgent action must be taken by the United States to stem the decline of its hegemony. It asserts that if the Chinese and Russian ruling classes are permitted to realise their ambition of dominant influence in their own regions, the “plausible” consequence will be a “devastating clash between the world’s great powers”—a world war fought with nuclear weapons."
God Damn these people!
What they're talking about is NUKES, nuclear weapons. That's the stage of human civilization we're now at. We're at DEFCON ONE, Red Alert, it's Happy Nukey Time! Really, if you think about it, it makes sense. Which is why we hear War Criminal Trump (he killed children on Day One, REMEMBER?) give his sales speech to greatly increase and modernize the nuclear weapons stockpile of the United States Empire. (Of course Obama did the same thing.) Because 5000 isn't enough, it has to be more, and more, and more. Fuck.
Here's what we taxpayers are in for:
"The conclusion advanced by the Economist is that America must end “20 years of strategic drift” under successive administrations, which has allegedly “played into the hands of Russia and China.” In a series of articles, its special report advocates that the US spend staggering sums on new nuclear weapons and conventional weapons systems, including robotic and artificial intelligence (AI) technology, to ensure that it retains the military superiority that has, until now, inspired “fear in its foes.”
You would think with all the warnings our government representatives would be just a tad bit concerned. Like maybe trying to put a stop to the end of the world as we know it. Maybe putting that ahead of a FUCKING MEMO.
But both political parties are in too deep. They are the ones that are going to authorize those staggering sums of taxpayer dollars to increase and modernize nuclear and conventional weapons while implementing austerity measures on the middle/working classes and continuing to make the rich as fucking rich as possible. And there will be zero so called progressives to the rescue within the democratic party because EVERY SINGLE ONE will support U.S. imperialism. They have to or they will not be able to function within our political system. Do some research on these new "progressive" candidates and see exactly what they WILL NOT say.
But make no mistake, that is no excuse to accept a system designed to maintain the power of the oligarchy, and one that is leading us and the world to the brink of extinction. This is all on the United States of America and the government that controls it. These two political parties are a danger to the people of this world and of the planet. They must be stopped before it's too late.
