Living standards have varied dramatically throughout history. Not only is there a time element involved, but also a political element. Most importantly, there is a racial element involved in all economies. Different races have different genetic endowments that are involved in creativity, productivity and perseverance.
These genetic differences cannot be changed, nor can they be camouflaged.
There is a recent movement to make all races intermarry in order to produce a weak and easily controlled population. This movement was initiated and is being perpetuated by the Power Groups–the groups that control the economies of all the countries in the world.
Overriding every economic area of the globe are the assemblages of men who control capital. I call these groups of men: Power Groups.
They have replaced the ancient and traditional Aristocracies that once ruled every country on the planet. The men of the Power Groups are elites, well trained and educated in the mechanisms of controlling populations.
They choose leaders and political parties. Their control resides in their ability to pay the politicians huge sums of money for performing as Political Leaders and steering each country in the direction that maximizes the profits of the economic area that they control.
They start wars in order to capture commodities hidden in the earth, and they develop populations to which they sell their products.
The entire movement to a Global Economy was established by the world Power Groups.
The understanding of the Power Groups and their control of the World Economy is completely unknown to the most sophisticated Researchers and Observers. No matter where I read or whom I read I am impressed with the total superficiality of the writer’s knowledge. The world’s commentators are locked into the historical political structure, of Aristocracy and subordinates.
The very idea that one man can know everything necessary to run any country is so insane that I can hardly believe that no one presents the reality of the political dynamics.
In science one man might develop a thesis concerning the mechanisms of the interactions of plants or animals or planets and gravity or even time and motion.
In the history of mankind only four men came close to reality. They are Einstein, Newton, Galileo and, of course, Aristotle. Every other theorist has been far, far from reality.
In the field of economics, no man has ever understood the relationships between productive humans, financial manipulators (capitalists) and the extant political hierarchies.
In order to intervene in an illness so that a beneficial conclusion is attained, one is required to know the anatomy and pathophysiology of the disease.
THE WORLD POPULATION AS A PRIMITIVE SEA
If we look back at the economic behavior of human beings during the last five thousand years we see the pattern of family to tribe to small city states to nationalist countries, to large economic blocks and today, to ‘The Global Economy.”
The force that led to this “Global Economy” is quite simple: Conservation of Energy.
Redundancy of activity means using more energy than necessary to accomplish a given task. Hence, mergers, common markets, common currencies and specialists who produce only one product which is later integrated and assembled into a final product reduces the use of energy.
No longer do we have a Stradivarius who take a limb of a tree and carefully cuts, bends, polishes and assembles a work of art. Today we have “teams” of workers, each doing a minute area of the production of an article or the presentation of a service.
The idea of “THE TEAM” has gained notoriety as the happy and efficient method of producing or doing anything. However, no TEAM has ever produced anything uniquely beautiful
Birds who sing and then build a nest and raise their baby birds so that they may fly and reproduce their race are not teams. They are unique pairs who do everything through their genetic endowments and their willingness to try and try again, sometimes producing nothing, but, more often, producing lovely baby chicks who eventually go through the same process.
The thought that TEAMS are the epitomy of coalesced workers is a shameless capitulation to the force of the Conservation of Energy. Leonardo DaVinci and Michelangelo were not TEAMS. No TEAM could ever come close to their achievements.
If we expand this theorem to the production of large economies we come to the same conclusion… Large groups of people produce mediocrity at the best.
But, since people want to expend the least energy possible their results are very close to garbage. The Power Groups know this and they promote it in every way possible. Power Groups want slaves, not citizens with high standards.
Approximately five centuries ago, with the exception of those nation who were endowed with intelligent, gifted and brave populations, the living standards across the entire planet were very similar.
Farming was the primary source of food and habitation. Whether in China or Europe or European colonies, living standards were very low compared to modern living standard.
The living standards of Africa and the Middle East and South America were, and still are, primitive.
Of all the living standards of the entire world, those of Europe were the highest.
THE AGE OF INDUSTRIALIZATION
As science and technology advanced in Europe, engineers developed ways in which products could be produced and ultimately sold to everyone on the planet.
Slowly, the living standards of the Europeans advanced, whilst the living standards of the remaining would populations actually decreased as increases in population meant that what food and products were available must be shared with the increased populations.
The living standards of Asia, South America, Africa and the Middle East fell to horrendous levels.
Malnutrition of every type was prevalent. Babies with bulging bellies and sunken eyes, Kwashiocor, were everywhere. Unemployment was endemic and approached 100 percent. Crime, petty and violent, was part of daily life.
This, in my mind, was the bottom of the ocean, where every living being tries to survive in a sea teeming with predators.
THE SECOND WORLD WAR
The Second World War, although it resulted in the death of millions of Europeans, was a sudden push into a profusion of wealth for the countries of the West. The U.S.A. and all the European countries had been compelled to build factories to make the military equipment needed for the constant warfare.
The West now had factories and trained hard workers at low wages. The West went on a manufacturing spree! They made everything for everybody in the world. Their agriculture was stupendous in its ability to produce. There lakes of wine, mountains of butter and endless supplies of grains.
The hungry people of the Third World nations purchased as much as they could. The economies of the West emerged out of the ocean and entered the calm waters along the beaches where they found a living standard that had never been known in the history of the world.
GREEDY POWER GROUPS
The Power Groups in control of the Western economies had never before seen such huge flows of capital. They all became instant billionaires!
But, that was not enough. The Power Groups wanted flows of capital that exceeded the potential of their economies. They therefore decided to change the laws and actually break the laws, in essence, commit criminal acts, in order to increase their profits.
From having their economies on the beaches, where living standards were the highest in history, the Power Groups created a canal in the beach so that the Western Economies would flow back into the bottom of the ocean.
The factories of the West were moved to China where they were welcomed by an eager government trying to maintain peace amongst their billion and a half inhabitants. As this occurred, the living standards of Westerners started to fall.
I called this total scenario THE ECONOMIC RIP TIDE.
The Western societies and Western Living Standards were being pulled back into the bottom of the ocean where predators abound and life is a struggle for existence.
As we will see in the chapters ahead, the Economic Rip Tide is the beginning of the end of Western high standard living,
Unfortunately, the Power Groups that control the west are constantly inundating Western citizens with bewildering propaganda and lies which the vast majority of the population are unable to analyze.
For this reason, the Economic Rip Tide will carry the populations of the West to a dying economy bereft of employment and all the benefits needed for health and well being.
