Globalization: the goal of the global plutocracy, so they can make money everywhere, exploit everyone, sell to everyone in the world. Globalization: One world ruled and exploited by a small class of people. They try to convince us it’s a good thing even for us and sometimes it is but globalization is predicated on an abundance of cheap oil and those days are ending. As it does and globalization become less possible, the plutocracy (a controlling class of the wealthy) pushes for it even harder. They are trying desperately to squeeze every last little bit of profit out of the world before the global collapse that will come with the end of the cheap energy that sustains the world’s huge populations.
Let’s talk a little more about globalization. Dell, for instance, makes computers in China and sells them in the US. The US computer industry is gone, killed off by foreign competition, killed off with government complicity. If the US is cut off from the rest of the world, if it is no longer economically feasible to ship computers from Asia to the US, then we will no have computers (or TVs) because America no longer has the factories to make its own.
The grocery store is filled with celery and onions from Mexico, grapes from Chili, and other produce from even farther away. Where once most food came from local farms, or at most, from California and Florida, now it doesn’t. The US is no longer a net exporter of food. We no longer produce enough food to feed our own. When there is no more cheap gas, how will we feed ourselves?
So globalization makes us dependent on foreign sources of food and manufactured goods. Soon we be unable to import these goods cheaply and our own industry is gone. When we need American industry to make things that we can no longer get globally, it won’t be there. The Bush Junta and the Clinton fools, pushed by the Rockefellers and the Council on Foreign Relations, have killed off our industry in their search for cheaper labor and higher profits abroad.
We will be sorry we can’t get our cheap computers and cell phones from China, but we will be very, very sorry that we can’t get the foreign food on which we have come to depend since the deliberate destruction of much of US food production.
Without oil, what? Back to the days of slow and stinking steamships, their smokestacks visibly belching pollution that makes the average car look like a clean alternative? Or maybe we’ll have nuclear powered ships. Instead of oil spills like the Exxon Valdez, we’ll get Chernobyl/Titanic disasters till the oceans are poisoned with radioactivity.
They will try everything, but in the end, without oil, globalization isn’t possible. You can’t depend on foreign imports without cheap transportation. As globalization fails each region will be forced to fall back on its local resources, its locally grown food, and its locally manufactured goods. Will American have anything to fall back on?
With the disappearance of cheap oil, it will become more and more difficult to support our population. Already we have to import food and half our oil. With the collapse of oil as a significant energy source, any country whose population exceeds its carrying capacity, i.e., its ability to feed its population, will have famines and massive population reductions.
With the luring of up to 66 million (the illegal immigrants and their families) additional people to the US we are assuring that we won’t be able to feed or provide for our population in the post-globalization world. It’s like adopting ten kids when you know that in six months you will only be able to feed two of them.
By allowing immigration, by encouraging it, legal or illegal, we are blighting our future and dooming our country and our children. We should be working to reduce US population. Instead the plutocracy works to increase it, first by trying to end abortion and birth control, then by massive immigration. Their ideal is China, China with its surfeit of cheap labor, China with its 1.4 billion, China with its history of famine and overpopulation and environmental degradation and its millennia of political repression. That is where they are trying to lead us. Because they think it is good for them.
We need leaders who will prepare us for the coming oil crunch and not just by trying to steal the oil of Iraq and Iran. We need leaders who will help the US to become self-sufficient, and not just for energy, but for food and manufactured goods.
I think we need Al Gore. He’s the only candidate I see that seems to recognize the finite nature of our planet and its resources.
But with or without him I think we are due for some hard times. I am reminded of Joseph in the Bible counciling the Pharaoh to prepare in the fat years for the coming lean ones. This seems common prudence. Instead we have a leadership whose motto seems to be “Eat, drink, and be merry because tomorrow we don’t care if you die.”
