Don Quijones: “Uncreative” Destruction – The Troika’s Hostile Takeover of Europe | naked capitalism

I cannot agree more with the assertions of Quijones, and his analysis; "traditionally divided Europeans from across the political spectrum face a conundrum of existential proportions: do we unite and fight to save what we have, or do we roll over for the corporate steamroller?"



Polls are manipulated to prevent organization against the trend of corporatism, not only in Europe, but in all of Western Society. Where centralization and fascism have been fait accompli in Russia and China since the peasant revolts, and the continent of Africa despoiled during colonization, democracy has taken decidedly longer to reach this point, and the will of the people is no longer a cost effective consideration.



The west will roll over and submit to the will of corporate dictatorship.This was warned about in George Orwell's 1984, where decisions over life and death will be determined in the boardroom, and not the parliament, by dictatorship, not by a majority. Once control has been gained, we will see whether this new dictator will be benevolent or malevolent. Whether peace ensues, or the global economic system reverberates from one crisis to another. People will bear what is bearable. Constitutions were setup to protect the people from their government. The government has failed in it's responsibility to protect the people from international monopolies. Surely, there is a forum where these grievances can be addressed, and there is, the court of the Almighty God and Father of Jesus Christ, in which all, rich and poor alike, will give an answer on that day. Praise be to God. Amen.

ARE YOU A PSYCHOPATH? « The Burning Platform

Without an understanding of demon possession, it is impossible to understand the psyche of these individuals. A person possessed by a devil spirit is a willing accomplice. “The devil made me do it” is not an affirmative defense, but a confession.
Devil spirit influence is not the same thing as possession, neither is the anti-christ. One is simply being influenced in your thinking, the other is selling out your soul to the devil, the anti-thesis of being born again of God’s spirit.
Both a person possessed and an anti-christ will exhibit these traits. A person possessed can have that spirit cast out and be redeemed, if he or she so chooses. An anti-christ has the seed of the serpent in them, and they will be tormented for all eternity in the lake of sulphur and fire reserved for the devil and the beast. They would be worthy of pity were it not for their acts of atrocity, murder, genocide, and torture of millions and perhaps millions upon millions before it’s all said and done.
I’ll leave the psychobabble to those way smarter than me. Thankfully, we have a saviour from the wrath that is to come.
“Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me.” (Revelation 3:20 ESV)
“because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.” (Romans 10:9-10 ESV)

Civilization Will Not Survive « The Burning Platform

Our civilization as we KNOW it would not survive. Knocking the wind out of government finances doesn't mean knocking the wind out of government. They have and are preparing.



The most important prep for the private sector, and anyone is spiritual. Knowing what we're fighting for, and who is the enemy.



After a collapse, civilization will continue, albeit under significantly different circumstances, especially if the return of Christ for his church happens first, or at the same time, see prepping priority. If he does, I won't need the months of stored food, water, and ammo I have stockpiled, and some hapless soul is welcome to it. They'll need it.



"Chaos, starvation, and war" may sum it up nicely. Survival probability increases significantly after the first few weeks and months. After that period of time, civilization will begin to restore itself. Whether it is a decentralized bartering economy, or insurgency waged against a police state remains to be seen.



It is possible the events recorded in Ezekiel, Joel, and Revelation will play out. A decent account of these events is outlined by John Hagee, John Hagee, pastor and author of ‘Four Blood Moons: Something Is About to Change,’ The first of which will occur on April 15 of this year. Between April 2014 and October 2015, Four blood moons (lunar eclipses) and one solar eclipse will occur on corresponding Judean holidays, potentially heralding a significant spiritual event.



Sometimes, it's better to know, than not. Make that always. Are you prepared for the coming restoration of God's kingdom to Jerusalem?



"because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved." (Romans 10:9-10 ESV)



"He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming soon.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus!"(Revelation 22:20 ESV)

THE STATE OF OUR EDUCATION « The Burning Platform

Gayle, no it’s not. It’s not helping, but the reason the US will soon be unrecognizable is because of US capitulation of fiscal responsibility going back to the founding of the country in some regards, but primarily with the FRA of 1913, which wouldn’t have been possible without the War of Northern Agression and leading to the first Great Depression. POTUS’s have been assassinated over it.



The current system is statistically unsustainable in domestic terms. In global terms, SHTF is going to occur sooner, because the rest of the world is not going to submit to US hegemony, which is what is required for the US dollar to remain the world’s reserve currency. The US is powerful, but not all powerful. When the $ falls, TPTB are first and foremost concerned about maintaining status quo, hence the build up of a domestic police state and nationalization of the country’s health care system.



That the national education system is a failure is not the fault of the students. It’s their parents fault, who were the first generation plopped down in front of a TV set and subjected to mass media along the lines of North Korea or Nazi Germany.



Personal responsibility is one thing, but apparently the state exists to provide jobs to teachers and other government drones. That is what is going to change, or there will be a second civil war, unless we are to accept a totalitarian police state. There may not even be a shot fired when the $ crashes and interest rates wreck the economy overnight.



Will the sun come up in the morning? Of course, but the devil is still the god of this world. (2 Corinthians 4:4)

THE STUDENT LOAN BUBBLE « The Burning Platform

IraK, lets’ put things in cultural perspective. The last time there was this much discontent in the country, it was the boomers who were 20 something. The 1960′s were a time that anyone will tell you nearly tore the social fabric of our country apart.



Now, you and LL and telling everyone, that’s the way it is. Not good enough. What the fuck do thing the Tea Party and OWS are all about?



I will endeavour to refrain from using the perfectly good english word “fuck” in every post, but for fuck’s sake, what the fuck?



IraK, again, in perspective, it was the boomers who abandoned the ideals for which they were protesting. The SYSTEM which you espouse so highly, is going to fail, it’s a statistical certainty. Where the fuck do you get off telling anyone to accept it? It’s malicious negligence to do so. Where are your ideals, oh yeah, you sold out.



And, LL, who said tax the rich. I think you’re paranoid. Besides, it wouldn’t matter, doesn’t cover the gap. My concern is, after the dust has settled, their will be two systems, one outside the green zones, and one inside.



Revelations talks about such a thing, but it’s established by God Almighty, maker of heaven and earth and all that is in them, and not by the rulers of this world. Not that it will stop them from trying.



The best bet is to get right with God, accept Jesus as Lord, and believe god raised him from the dead. Then you will have eternal life, which cannot be taken away, and buckle up because it’s about to get real. You have nothing to lose.



“And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.” (2 Corinthians 4:3-4 ESV)

anon, are you brain dead. Obummer doesn’t control anything, nor has any POTUS beginning with Reagan.





LBJ, now there’s a POTUS who was in control. Just ask Jackie.



I read something recently that discussed how Reagan didn’t want Bush as a running mate, but it was decided for him, so the feds would have an inside man in the WH.



Look at who Bush II had in his administration, same deal. Clinton had Hillary. If Gore had won, we would have had HillaryCare a decade sooner.



It’s unconscionable the way this country is being run. Even they know the ship is going down, what is not known is how deep. How bad is it going to be, and who is going to be in control. Whether we become a police state, or one of individual freedom.



Obummer has pulled out all the stops in the media campaign for the ACA, has already conceded the mid-terms, and is fighting for the survival of his next two years in office.



The repubs will allow things to descend into chaos, but only to a certain extent, so the pieces aren’t too hard to pick up in 2016.



Above all, the only thing either side cares about is being in control. The 4th branch of government, the federal bureaucracy doesn’t care who’s in control as long as their budgets increase at least as much as the real rate of inflation.



LL mentioned we have 3 years of Obummer to reach $20T in debt, and the destruction of our health care system. I wonder if he and AWD thing the repubs are the answer.



I vote repub, and I supported Ron Paul. The tea party has the answers, but spending and cut taxes to allow private business to invest. Americans don’t want that kind of change, so we get a welfare state. It will fail, so the question remains what takes it’s place. I say kick out the career pols and crats. I see it in state government, and I know it exists in the federal.



Geopolitics is at a stalemate over Iran, which can continue for decades. Russia’s invasion of the Ukraine could easily ignite a hot war in the middle east, and once that starts, there’s no telling where it will end.



I think peace starts by recognizing the failure of the state, by abdicating it’s fiscal responsibility. Kick out the bankers at the fed, and let’s begin by restoring our own house.

IT’S WORSE THAN YOU THOUGHT « The Burning Platform

How many Basichs are out there with how many $M in claims? This should keep the courts busy for years. At least until the collapse, and the insurance companies will be sitting pretty, having diversified their investments across the strata. Why isn't investment income used to lower insurance premiums?



No one will argue the system could be tweaked to work for everyone, and no one will argue it has been tweaked to work only for the elite, and the FSA, depending on how far you want to take the analogy.



Where the break down occurs is when the elite assume they can act with impunity, and their will be no consequences. When exploitation of the earth's resources has reached it's zenith, what then?



"As it is written,



“For your sake we are being killed all the day long;

we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.”



No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us." (Romans 8:36-37 ESV)



Given a choice, I will take my chances with the Lord God Almighty, and in the power of his might. Tough choice, right. It's easy when you have nothing to lose. It's tougher when you're in a position of power and you have a difficult decision to make between right and wrong. At least Edward Snowden, and PFC Bradley Manning made the right decisions.
