Thus you see the regime-changing attempt you see in Peru now, with the blockades and such.-- everywhere on the globe (meaning EVEN across the United States) -- would result in the sort of chaos one sees today in Peru (see
Now let's globalize this vision. Crashing the economies of the whole of the First World, as seems to be happening now, will make the whole world into Peru. How would that be profitable for the rich few?
