Hello, this is Darrell Castle! Today, we are going to continue – and also conclude – our six-week-long discussion of Western Civilization: how it met with destruction, what that means for us today, and, if it is gone, what has replaced it?
What used to be known as European Civilization, or Western Civilization, was burned up in the fires of World Wars One and Two. It took World War Two to finally finish off the sovereignty of the Western World and deliver it into the hands of an “international ruling elite,” consisting of an entrenched group of politicians, bureaucrats, bankers, multinational corporations, including media giants and their executives, and probably many others. Unnoticed by most of the public, these insiders have taken control of the United States Government, which, in turn, controls the Western World, and even the non-Western World to some extent, with the money provided by the credit-based monetary system, and the debt that system allows the United States to incur.
These “elitist” people apparently have much more power and influence than “We, the people,” although “We, the people,” formed the government to serve our common purposes. The elite always seem to get what they want, and the voters only count if their interests happen to coincide with the elite out of pure coincidence. The people elect presidents and change majorities in congress and the senate, but nothing ever seems to change except to continue further down the same path. The country exhausts itself financially, fighting wars, and providing a very costly defense for the rest of NATO from the threat of the Soviet Union. The Soviet Union collapses and we breathe a sigh of relief, but nothing changes. Now we have a new enemy in Islamic terrorism that we have been fighting at least since 1991, and there is no end in sight. The defense budget goes up each year, and we need more and more costly weapons systems to fight the growing threats. Regulations are removed, allowing giant banks to engage in casino-type gambling, with not only depositors’ money, but with money the banks don’t even have. When the whole sordid mess collapses, threatening the entire economy, the United States government steps in with trillions of dollars from the fruits of the labor of American taxpayers, and, with that debt, the taxpayers will have to work many years just to pay the interest alone.
The government looks essentially the same on paper today as it did more than 200 years ago, but it is not the same and, in fact, it is not even close to the same. The new government of today doesn’t care about the people, about you and me and who we voted for, and it doesn’t care about the nation and its safety. The government of today cares only about the elite who control it. It is not in the best interests of the elite for wars to end or for terrorism to be eliminated. Therefore, these people want wars to continue and to breed new wars. They want terrorism to flourish and not end, because those things help them transfer an endless stream of taxpayer funds into their pockets. Wars and terrorists don’t really threaten the elite, they make them stronger. They are akin to vampires, sucking blood to strengthen their existence.
You and I, on the other hand, could easily become threats to the elites, but, not to worry, they have that well under control. That is why they built a $1.5 to $2 billion dollar complex in Utah with $2 billion more for electronic components, to keep tabs on each of us; but it’s not just us, it’s every person on planet earth. That’s right! They are not content to watch us, to read our emails, to listen to our phone calls, they want the same capability for every person on earth. These records aren’t kept so the government can keep tabs on a few crazy Islamists. No, they are kept so that the real threat to the elite, i.e., us, can be monitored, and if we get out of line we can be put back in line, ruined, or murdered very quickly. Whistle-blowers have said the program collects 100 billion emails per day, and 20 trillion communications altogether. It uses $40 million dollars’ worth of electricity per year and, 1.7 million gallons of water per day. If you are so unfortunate as to be on the government’s “enemies list,” well, you better watch out, because the information will be tabulated and passed on to state and local law enforcement so you can be watched, and, if necessary, targeted.
Now it’s going to get even better for these soulless minions. With the coming cashless society that we talked about last week, every financial transaction, no matter how small, will have to go through their banking system, so they have control of every penny earned and every penny spent. Anytime the vampires need to suck more of our blood, all they will have to do is tap our bank accounts and safe deposit boxes. That’s not even the worst of it. At their whim, your card could be canceled and with it, your existence in the human race. You will exist only because they allow it. “We, the people,” are sick of it all, but we should understand that it is human nature to want power, money, and status. All that is necessary to have those things is to get control over the government. That is why so much money is spent trying to get elected and trying to influence public policy.
Can anything be done? I don’t know if the Rule of Law can ever be reestablished. A good start would be to prosecute politicians of every party when they commit crimes, regardless of the positions they hold, and, likewise, those in the corporate world who commit crimes. That would, at least, start the process of re-establishing respect for the Rule of Law, because, right now, the elite do not have to follow our rules. The rules and the law do not apply to them. Such things are for little people, like us.
The elite use the left v. right controversy as just another war to subjugate and divide us. They don’t care who you vote for. It is anti-democracy at its finest. Rule by what Mr. Jefferson called “a tiny elite.” It’s the perfect society for them, and the perfect tyranny for us. They promise us paradise, but they deliver a global prison. The fact that they are people with sociopathic personalities is fairly evident. Such personalities tend to be attracted to such work. Listen to the dictionary definition of sociopath: Someone whose social behavior is extremely abnormal. Sociopaths are interested only in their personal needs and desires, without concern for the effects of their behavior on others. I will add an addendum, and say: they feel no empathy for others; they just don’t care about anyone but them- selves, yet they become very good at pretending they do.
Amidst all this turmoil and destruction, there is some good news. Yes, our culture and our civilization may be destroyed, our religious faith be under attack, our words may now be crimes and our government may be run by sociopaths, but there is good news. The World Bank tells us that global poverty has fallen below 10% for the first time ever. Less than 10% of the world’s population is living in what the World Bank calls poverty. That is defined as income of less than $1.90 per day. Twenty-five years ago, more than one-third lived on less. Poverty has been the normal condition of mankind. Many worked just to survive, and death from disease and violence were common. Free markets, free inquiry, and freedom – in other words, all part of Western Civilization and the changes it brought. We should be fighting to preserve those changes.
Finally folks, that’s it for this series. I hope you’ve been enlightened, and, if so, please consider passing some or all of the issues to your friends, or to those on your list. You might also consider subscribing by RSS feed. My advice is that you consider finding comfort in the pages of the Bible, as I do, especially the Psalms. My favorite is the 63rd.
At least that’s the way I see it. Until next time, this is Darrell Castle. Thanks for reading!
