In defence of the world goverment. Part 6: Economy
The economy is one of the most important tools that the world government uses to control the society. However, this tool has long outlived itself and requires replacement, since it can no longer solve modern social problems.
The question is not whether there is or is not a secret world government, but whether or not our society and each one of us has enough willpower, common sense and awareness to survive the supercrisis and build a new, better world.
Chairman: (moving closer to Stranger) Economy is one of our most important instruments of control over humanity. I’ve already told you that one of our projects was to establish transnational corporations. Since we failed to create a single state by political means, we decided to build an integrated state using economy and finance... Economy is a very old project, but that doesn’t matter now. It’s as if we superimposed an economic map of the world on a political map, you know?
Stranger: (listens carefully and nods)
Chairman: There are no China, USA or Germany on this map, but there are Apple, Microsoft, BMW... And we have established a superstate, called the banking system, above all these economic ‘states.’
Stranger: Everyone has heard of the theory that national banks of all countries don’t belong to their states, but are controlled by the global banking elite.
Chairman: Almost all... only 4 countries today have a central bank outside of our control...
Stranger: ...Iran, Syria, Cuba and... (sinks into thought)
Their conversation is overheard by Councilor A, who is sitting to the right of the Stranger.
Councilor A: ...and North Korea. I apologize for interrupting your conversation, but I just couldn’t help it (smiles).
Stranger: That’s right! North Korea! And how do you control them? (turns to Councilor A)
Councilor A: There are several options, from simple to very complex and intricate. Someday you’ll find out what they are. (laughs slyly)
Stranger: Alright, but I have a question.
Councilor A: (looking at the Stranger with curiosity and arrogance, a glass of whisky in his hand)
Stranger: Control over finances clearly endows you with enormous power over states and various social groups... But just twenty minutes ago we were talking about Russia (looks at Councilor B), which is trying to play against your interests today. Why can’t you influence it and make it do what you want?
Councilor A: Right (smirks)... of course, it’s not all that simple in reality. We can provoke an economic crisis in Russia any day, putting it on the verge of survival. We can easily boost the dollar rate against the ruble at least 10 times over, and then the Russians will have to forget what German cars and Japanese electronics look like for a long time. (leaning towards the Stranger and knocking on the table with his index finger) But you are forgetting that we are not led by a thirst for power or hatred for certain people or a single person. Just because their leader does not want to cooperate with us, we can’t economically devastate the whole country. We always act on our primary goal, our mission. And our mission is to make this world a better place. As good as we can. And if it’s better for all mankind if Russia or some other state falls into an economic coma, we’ll make sure that happens. (straightens up, reclines in the chair, sipping whiskey.)
Stranger: (sarcastically) But you have a very original idea of what the best is - nuclear war, armed conflicts, crises...
Their conversation manages to attract the attention of everyone at the table, and they follow the conversation with interest.
Councilor A: Do you still think we’re responsible for wars and other misfortunes? (laughs) My colleague was right – we don’t force anyone to do anything. It’s people’s choice. Do you think there would have been fewer armed conflicts without us? I have to disappoint you – there would have been even more of them... We transform these conflicts from banal massacres over resources or religion into something useful for the future of all mankind.
Stranger: I already know that you are all angels in the flesh! Still, I don’t understand the Russian case. What prevents you from launching the most powerful economic crisis over there and putting your man at the helm?
Councilor A: I understand your impatience in this matter. All in due time ... (smiles broadly, baring yellow teeth) Those economic levers that are used today against Russia will bring results in the long term. This isn’t the time or place for abrupt moves.
Councilor A: Russia is a huge country that’s essential for the whole world. It’s home to a huge concentration of natural resources, including many unspoiled fertile lands. Besides, Russia is one of the largest suppliers of energy resources. If we begin acting more aggressively and abruptly, it may have negative consequences for the entire global community. Don’t underestimate your opponent. Russia is a powerful nuclear state. Not a good idea to corner the Russian bear, or it will get furious, and that’s when all of us will be in major trouble. It’s best to be careful. We’ll try to get the bear over on our side... Did I answer your question?
Stranger: (nodding thoughtfully) I take it you have some special bear-taming techniques?
Councilor A: Yes, in principle, the technique is pretty old and quite common. We use it everywhere.
Chairman: Please, elaborate for our guest.
Councilor A: (puts the whisky glass down on the table) Well... At first an economic crisis breaks out in the country, then it drags on for several years or decades, people get tired of it and want change. Sooner or later, the right leaders come to power and offer these changes to the people. And then we offer them financial assistance for economic recovery. But it’s not for nothing. In return for their help, we propose certain reforms. Among other things, these reforms allow to address demographic and resource allocation issues, aging populations, introduction of GMO products, reducing consumption, carbon dioxide emissions and environmental impact, environmental issues, nature and fauna conservation, waste recycling, etc. These problems would be the last to be dealt with. They are more interested in power and money. But this way it has to be done, otherwise they will not receive the money for development and economic recovery.
Stranger: So, even a big country like Russia, which has tons of resources, science and technology, may need someone’s help?
Councilor A: Of course! We live in the consumer society era. That’s exactly why it was created - to wield power over this society. Power that is beyond state borders. (he noticed that everyone at the table are listening to him closely) Ladies and gentlemen! Would you mind if I catch our friend up on a little theory? Since our conversation concerns subjects of this sort, I will try to move on smoothly to my report. You can find all the important figures from my report in your tablets. If you need me to explain anything further, I’d be happy to elaborate.
Everyone begins nodding in approval.
Chairman: Go ahead, Councilor, we are all ears.
Councilor A: Great. In that case, I’ll go on. (looking directly at Stranger) A consumer society was needed to create transnational corporations and a powerful global banking system. We have taught people to strive for consumption, for material goods, to chase trends and novelties. On the one hand, this has allowed many companies to turn into global giants. On the other hand, it made people take out loans.
Councilor A: All of this has led people and states to become dependent on the global banking system. Since people strive to live better and better, it is necessary to ensure a constant level of economic growth and development. If there is no economic growth, people become dissatisfied with their leader and eventually choose another one. It’s up to us to decide whether or not to let the economy grow. This way, we can control various states. And it’s a great mechanism for controlling mankind.
Stranger: Pardon me, Councilor, don’t you find this contradictory. You are fighting to lower resource consumption and the environmental impact, but at the same time are you encouraging people to consume?
Councilor A: (with a cunning smile) That’s a reasonable question. There’s a little trick here. Consumer society forces everyone to strive for material well-being and abundance. And everyone’s doing it. Only a few people manage to achieve material well-being.
Stranger: And these are the people called the golden billion?
Councilor A: You have answered your own question. Today we’ve already been mentioned that our planet can allow an acceptable level of consumption for about 1 billion people without harming the ecosphere. The rest only aspire to this level, but will never reach it.
Stranger: And who’s the one to decide who deserves to live well and who doesn’t?
Councilor A: Wrong phrasing... The question is who’s ready to live like this and who’s not. Those who are ready for this type of life must accept the universal values that we offer. Without these values, it will be impossible to build a truly civilized and free society. But this does not mean that people should abandon their traditions and worldviews. We only offer a framework that can be filled with other elements.
Stranger: (looks at Councilor A questioningly) Universal values?
Councilor A: European, or Western, if you will. These are values like personal freedom and self-expression, freedom of speech and religion, predominance of secular laws over religious ones, protection of human rights and gender equality, freedom of sexual orientation, recognition of animal rights, respect for nature, care for the environment, self-improvement, adoption of family planning principles and population control. Those who are ready to accept these life principles are given the chance to develop. Those who do not accept them fall under our economic development restriction program.
Stranger: Curious. I used to think that all these values were just another name for the greed for profit.
Councilor A: (laughs) Don’t worry! It is entirely normal and typical for an average citizen... These values are the foundation of our organization. It’s just that those who are really only fighting for money and power find it beneficial to represent us in a different light. And to blame all the troubles and misfortunes that happen in their countries on us. (addressing everyone at the table)
Councilor A: By the way, ladies and gentlemen, you will find data in my report on how efficient our program was in curbing economic development over the past decade. It allows us to save millions of tons of raw materials and energy annually, and to slow down the growth of the world population by about 50-60 million people a year.
Stranger: Still, there’s something I don’t get in this theory...
Councilor A: What is it?
Stranger: There are countries where people are starving to death. Others only have rice and water on their table. Meanwhile, luxurious Rolls-Royces are cruising through Manhattan, with people inside drinking wine equal in price to the budget of a small African town. Everyone knows that a tiny handful of billionaires possess most of the money. Maybe they should become less rich and share with the needier. Maybe they should consume less so that others can afford to eat at least twice a day?
Councilor A: (sighs) This idea is as old as the world itself. It’s simple. The existence of this handful of billionaires is also a part of our global project. They serve as proof that anyone, everyonecan live just like they do. And everyone wants to live like them. But the main point of this concept is different. If we divide all their money, or at least half of it, among the poor, it will dramatically increase resource consumption and accelerate the onset of the super crisis. Every low-income person will want to buy new clothes, consume more food, buy more electronics, use more gasoline, etc. There’s more money in the world than resources. We cannot allow humanity to dramatically increase consumption - and we’ll have to dramatically reduce it soon. That’s why these billionaires are accumulating money, sort of like money sacks that keep money from turning into goods and services. They’ll never be able to spend even a tenth of all that money themselves. In addition, premium products and goods exist especially for them. They cost hundreds of times more than regular goods, even though approximately the same amount of resources is used to manufacture them as anything else. The rest is pure marketing and style and aesthetics issues.
Stranger: But doesn’t anyone try to break the dependence on your banking system?
Councilor A: Oh, they do. China has been snapping back at us more and more recently on the wave of ideas of a new multipolar world. They have grown stronger and now believe that they independently judge what is good and bad for the world. And they are almost open about their indifference to what happens in other countries. They are now more concerned with personal gain and prosperity. That is why they are attempting to find a way out of an uncomfortable situation, which our agreements and the power of the world banking system places them in. But I think we will use their independence for our purposes. (he turned to Councilor B) Right?
Councilor B: (nodding approvingly) They want a multipolar world? That’s what they’ll get!
Stranger: What about cryptocurrency? It’s another attempt to get rid of the banks’ authority, right?
Councilor A: (looking over at the Chairman and speaking with a smile) And your guest is not as simple as he seems at first sight.
Chairman: (raises his eyebrows and smiles back)
Councilor A: I was just about to move on to this topic. Cryptocurrency is our pilot project, it is one of the alternative financial system options of the future. It’s probably intended to replace the existing system soon enough.
Stranger: What do you find unsatisfactory about the modern system? It is effective and allows you to achieve your goals.
Councilor A: (immersed in thought) Colleagues, we’ve reached the key point that I wanted to cover today. (addressing everyone at the table) To be honest, I have been thinking for a long time about the best way to tell you about it, but everything happened on its own. This may not be news to many of you. Rumors and speculations on this topic have been going on for a long time. Our modern economic system will soon become unable to fulfil the functions that we entrust to it.
Everyone at the table exchanges glances and starts whispering.
Chairman: What led you to these conclusions?
Councilor A: An analysis of the facts and long reflections. Our modern economic system is at an impasse.
Chairman: There’s nothing unusual about that. It’s been created long enough ago. Nothing is forever.
Councilor A: I see that my news didn’t surprise you at all.
Chairman: No. I’ve been seeing numerous flaws in this system for a long time. It really can no longer meet the new challenges that we are facing today. It has become so complicated that I honestly don’t know how you manage to get any results out of it. It should have been altered a long time ago. But we could not do it, because, first of all, an alternative financial system was not ready or tested. And secondly, you have to destroy the old system in order to implement a new one. And this is the most difficult task, since it’s the foundation of our entire world. One awkward move, and the whole planet will be in ruins.
Councilor A: (looking down and nodding in agreement) That’s exactly how things are. The economic system no longer meets our requirements. There is no longer a need for a consumer society, it has fulfilled its functions and leads to more problems than benefits today.
Councilor A: In addition, many of the global players found loopholes in this financial system and began to take advantage of them. Managing this system is becoming increasingly more complex every year, giving rise to additional problems for us. Up until today’s meeting, I didn’t quite understand how we were going to dismantle it. We’ve been working on this issue for several years now. We have come up with various options, so that the current financial system would last at least another 30 years, until the peak of the food crisis. But everything has fallen back into place today. Councilor B’s idea of an artificial bifurcation point and a controlled supercrisis will solve our problem as well. We won’t have to think about how to dismantle the old system. The supercrisis will manage it all on its own. All we have to do is set up the new system.
Stranger: Are cryptocurrencies that new system?
Councilor A: Not exactly. Cryptocurrencies are just one of its elements.
Chairman: Councilor, we will be expecting a full report on the new financial system from you in the near future.
Councilor A responds with a positive nod.
Chairman: Alright. We shall then turn to Councilor D’s report.
