the great bear raid on america


history unfolds from day to day, and people are led into wars and invasions and ethnic cleansings bit by bit. no german of the inter war period would have voted for the second world war horrors of carpet bombing, concentration camps, mass starvation, or the devastation of nations, if presented in advance with the whole picture of what was to come. such things are only possible because they unfold bit by bit, and each new step, from the sudentenland to hiroshima and nagasaki, follows on in a logical seeming progression from the previous step.

as the second world war began, in whose plan of campaign did these terrible things lie? they were probably unforeseen and unforseeable, but if they existed anywhere it must have been in the ruthless ambition and aggression of those who launched the war. much of the drive to power originates at subconscious level. if new horrors lie in wait for us in our turn, this is where they would now be - at a subconscious level in the minds of the presently ruthless and powerful.

i have been ruminating upon the conspiracy theories of those who say that the neo conservative cabal in power in america planned or permitted the events of 9/11. i have come to an unexpected conclusion. either the events came out of the blue to the neo conservatives, in which case it is a waste of time to rake over the ashes of ground zero yet again, or they were planned or permitted to happen, and we are in the grip of one of the most ruthless administrations of all time - so much so that to uncover this truth and prove it beyond doubt, would be even more disruptive to social and political life in america than to remain in denial.

our paranoia - and paranoia can be useful too - would be better employed trying to read the purpose of the current actions of the administration, not in analysing its past actions, and definitely not in giving any attention to its advertised objectives, which are largely in the nature of a smokescreen behind which to make covert moves in other directions.

all of the current actions of this administration are consistent with the conscious or unconscious perpetration of a great bear raid upon america. the relentless running of the economy into debt, the relentless insistence that over consumption - accumulating personal and national indebtedness - is a good and patriotic thing, amounts to a deliberate programme. borrowing money to get out of debt is always an illusory project. are those who regulate the united states' economy helpless in the face of their current problems, like men speeding on ice, going ever faster out of a fear of what would happen if they touched the brakes? - it is either that or that they are deliberately crashing the economy. if it is the latter, it can only be because there are things that they value even more than the national economy or the national currency, the dollar, which also happens to be the world's present reserve currency.

so here is a theory for connoiseurs of conspiracy theory. a great gulf has opened up between those who have their all invested in america, and those, such as the captains of multinational companies and international finance, who have risen above mere national boundaries. no one expects a bear raid upon america, because in most peoples' minds america, and the dollar, are the solid mainland of the global economy. they are the homeland, the place you return to after a speculative raid upon some distant island of investment opportunity, elsewhere.

but a class of players have now emerged on the global stage, to whom 'nationalism' is an irrelevance. for them it is a word that evokes a response no better than the word 'protectionism.' national boundaries and local loyalties are constraints upon the free ranging growth that they crave for their corporations. they need an act of demolition, to clear the playing field for the construction of a new world order run by companies, rather than national electorates. it is not that they do not want a reserve currency - but they want one which is much more free of any merely national electoral process. and they want one which is a 'fiat' currency, not tied to gold or some other natural, real world, balancing mechanism.

before george soros and others brought down the pound sterling, no one had imagined a bear raid against the currency of a major country. now we are in the same situation with regard to the global reserve currency, the dollar. if the dollar were brought all the way to collapse - what would succeed it? perhaps some basket of major currencies regulated by some new form of a committee of international bankers? some annual meeting of a G7, a G8, or a G22, with an american appointed chairperson? paul wolfowitz perhaps?

a bear raid against the dollar would also be a bear raid against american shares, bonds, and property. those with the insider information would be out already waiting on the sidelines, and would then come back in to buy all before them at 30 cents to the dollar, and lay the foundations of the new multinational elite of the new world order.

the attempt to base an ever growing global economy upon finite, or diminishing supplies of oil and gas, is doomed anyway to end in a financial crisis that would occur in anticipation of an imminent energy crisis. the neo conservative scenario proposes a crisis now, and a controlled crash, while geopolitical and global economic matters are still to a large extent within their control.

is there no easier way out? the crash i s the easy way out.

and how do i know all this? my paranoia tells me so. i am making a gift of today's blog to conspiracy theorists everywhere. i believe that the more extreme conspiracy theorists actually desire there to be conspiracies. this is their personal psychological reaction to fear of events of a violent, random and chaotic nature. if things appear frighteningly out of control - the conspiracy theorist feels compelled to fantasise that the unsettling events are secretly controlled, even if it has to be by a group of ruthless, malicious, powerful and self interested people.

this is how i have come to identify and name 'the great bear raid upon america.' the alternative, that we are in the grip of unplanned and uncontrolled events, facing a violent and chaotic future under leaders who are clueless, short sighted, spineless and adrift, - is more than my psyche can bear.
