How the Elite Will Sell Global Collapse To The Masses

Brandon Smith, Contributor
Activist Post

In our modern world there exist certain institutions of power. Not government committees, alphabet agencies, corporate lobbies, or even standard military organizations; no, these are the mere “middle-men” of power. The errand boys. The well paid hitmen of the global mafia. They are not the strategists or the decision makers.
Instead, I speak of institutions which introduce the newest paradigms. Who write the propaganda. Who issue the orders from on high. I speak of the hubs of elitism which have initiated nearly every policy mechanism of our government for the past several decades. I am talking about the Council On Foreign Relations, the Tavistock Institute, the Heritage Foundation (a socialist organization posing as conservative), the Bilderberg Group, as well as the corporate foils that they use to enact globalization, such as Monsanto, Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, the Carlyle Group, etc.

Many of these organizations and corporations operate a revolving door within the U.S. government. Monsanto has champions, like Donald Rumsfeld who was on the board of directors of its Searle Pharmaceuticals branch, who later went on to help the company force numerous dangerous products including Aspartame through the FDA. Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan have a veritable merry-go-round of corrupt banking agents which are appointed to important White House and Treasury positions on a regular basis REGARDLESS of which party happens to be in office. Most prominent politicians are all members of the Council on Foreign Relations, an organization which has openly admitted on multiple occasions that their goal is the destruction of U.S. sovereignty and the formation of a “one world government” or “supranational union” (their words, not mine).

However, one organization seems to rear its ugly head at the forefront of the most sweeping mass propaganda operations of our time, and has been linked to the creation of the most atrocious military methodologies, including the use of false flag events. I am of course referring to the Rand Corporation, a California based “think tank” whose influence reaches into nearly every sphere of our society, from politics, to war, to entertainment.

The Rand Corporation deals in what I would call “absolute gray”. The goal of the group from its very inception was to promote a social atmosphere of moral ambiguity in the name of personal and national priority. They did this first through the creation of “Rational Choice Theory”; a theory which prescribes that when making any choice, an individual (or government) must act as if balancing costs against benefits to arrive at an action that maximizes personal advantage. Basically, the ends justify the means, and moral conscience is not a factor to be taken seriously if one wishes to be successful.

Hilariously, rational choice theory has been attacked in the past by pro-socialist (collectivist) critics as “extreme individualism”; a philosophy which gives us license to be as “self serving” as possible while feeling patriotic at the same time. In reality, the socialists should have been applauding Rand Corporation all along.

What Rand had done through its propaganda war against the American people was to infuse the exact culture of selfishness needed to push the U.S. towards the socialist ideal. At the onset of any communist or national socialist society (sorry socialists, but they do indeed come from the same collectivist mindset), the masses are first convinced to hand over ultimate power to the establishment in order to safeguard THEMSELVES, not others. That is to say, the common collectivist man chooses to hand over his freedoms and participate in totalitarianism not because he wants what is best for the world, but because he wants what is best for himself, and he believes servitude to the system will get him what he wants with as little private sacrifice as possible (you know, except for his soul…).

The psychologist Carl Jung notes in his observations of collectivism in Nazi Germany and Stalinist Russia that most citizens of those nations did not necessarily want the formation of a tyrannical oligarchy, but, they went along with it anyway because they feared for their own comfort and livelihoods. Many a German supported the Third Reich simply because they did not want to lose a cushy job, or a steady paycheck, or they liked that the “trains ran on time”. Socialism is by far the most selfish movement in history, despite the fact that they claim to do what they do “for the greater good of the greater number”.

Rand also used Rational Choice Theory as a means to remove questions of principle from the debate over social progress. Rational Choice propaganda commonly presents the target audience with a false conundrum. A perfect example would be the hardcore propaganda based television show ‘24’ starring Kiefer Sutherland, in which a government “anti-terrorism” agent is faced with a controlled choice scenario in nearly every episode. This choice almost always ends with the agent being forced to set aside his morals and conscience to torture, kill, and destroy without mercy, or, allow millions of innocents to die if he does not.

Of course, the real world does not work this way. Life is not a chess game. Avenues to resolution of any crisis are limited only by our imagination and intelligence, not to mention the immense number of choices that could be made to defuse a crisis before it develops. Yet, Rand would like you to believe that we (and those in government) are required to become monstrous in order to survive. That we should be willing to forgo conscience and justice now for the promise of peace and tranquility later.

This is the age old strategy of Centralization; to remove all choices within a system, by force or manipulation, until the masses think they have nothing left but the choices the elites give them. It is the bread and butter of elitist institutions like Rand Corporation, and is at the core of the push for globalization.

In my studies on the developing economic disaster (or economic recovery depending on who you talk to) I have come across a particular methodology many times which set off my analyst alarm (or spidey-sense, if you will). This latest methodology, called “Linchpin Theory”, revolves around the work of John Casti, a Ph.D. from USC, “complexity scientist” and “systems theorist”, a Futurist, and most notably, a former employee of Rand Corporation:

Casti introduces his idea of “Linchpin Theory” in his book “X-Events: The Collapse Of Everything”, and what I found most immediately striking about the idea of “Linchpin Events” was how they offered perfect scapegoat scenarios for catastrophes that are engineered by the establishment.

Linchpin Theory argues that overt social, political, and technological “complexity” is to blame for the most destructive events in modern human history, and it is indeed an enticing suggestion for those who are uneducated and unaware of the behind the scenes mechanics of world events. Casti would like you to believe that political and social tides are unguided and chaotic; that all is random, and disaster is a product of “chance” trigger events that occur at the height of a malfunctioning and over-complicated system.

What he fails to mention, and what he should well know being a member of Rand, is that global events do not evolve in a vacuum. There have always been those groups who see themselves as the “select”, and who aspire to mold the future to there personal vision of Utopia. It has been openly admitted in myriad official observations on historical events that such groups have had a direct hand in the advent of particular conflicts.

For instance, Casti would call the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria an “X-event”, or linchpin, leading to the outbreak of WWI, when historical fact recalls that particular crisis was carefully constructed with the specific mind to involve the U.S.

Norman Dodd, former director of the Committee to Investigate Tax Exempt Foundations of the U.S. House of Representatives, testified that the Committee was invited to study the minutes of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace as part of the Committee's investigation. The Committee stated:"The trustees of the Foundation brought up a single question. If it is desirable to alter the life of an entire people, is there any means more efficient than war.... They discussed this question... for a year and came up with an answer: There are no known means more efficient than war, assuming the objective is altering the life of an entire people. That leads them to a question: How do we involve the United States in a war. This was in 1909."

So, long before the advent of Ferdinand’s assassination, plans were being set in motion by globalist interests to draw the U.S. into a large scale conflict in order to “alter the life, or thinking, of the entire culture”. When a group of people set out to direct thinking and opportunity towards a particular outcome, and the end result is a culmination of that outcome, it is obviously not coincidence, and it is definitely not providence. It can only be called subversive design.

In the economic arena, one might say that the collapse of Lehman Bros. was the “linchpin” that triggered the landslide in the derivatives market which is still going on to this day. However, the derivatives market bubble was a carefully constructed house of cards, deliberately created with the help of multiple agencies and institutions. The private Federal Reserve had to artificially lower interest rates and inject trillions upon trillions into the housing market, the international banks had to invest those trillions into mortgages that they KNEW were toxic and likely never to be repaid. The Federal Government had to allow those mortgages to then be chopped up into derivatives and resold on the open market. The ratings agencies had to examine those derivatives and obviously defunct mortgages and then stamp them AAA. The SEC had to ignore the massive fraud being done in broad daylight while sweeping thousands of formal complaints and whistle blowers under the rug.

This was not some “random” event caused by uncontrolled “complexity”. This was engineered complexity with a devious purpose. The creation of the derivatives collapse was done with foreknowledge, at least by some. Goldman Sachs was caught red handed betting against their OWN derivatives instruments! Meaning they knew exactly what was about to happen in the market they helped build! This is called Conspiracy…

One might attribute Casti’s idea to a sincere belief in chaos, and a lack of insight into the nature of globalism as a brand of religion. However, in his first and as far as I can tell only interview with Coast To Coast Radio, Casti promotes catastrophic “X-Events” as a “good thing” for humanity, right in line with the Rand Corporation ideology. Casti, being a futurist and elitist, sees the ideas of the past as obsolete when confronted with the technological advancements of the modern world, and so, describes X-event moments as a kind of evolutionary “kickstart”, knocking us out of our old and barbaric philosophies of living and forcing us, through trial by fire, to adapt to a more streamlined culture. The linchpin event is, to summarize Casti’s position, a culture’s way of “punishing itself” for settling too comfortably into its own heritage and traditions. In other words, WE will supposedly be to blame for the next great apocalypse, not the elites…

I might suggest that Casti's attitude seems to be one of general indifference to human suffering in the wake of his "X-Events", and that he would not necessarily be opposed to the deaths of millions if it caused the "advancement" of humanity towards a particular ideology. His concept of "advancement" and ours are likely very different, though. I suspect that he is well aware that X-Events are actually tools at the disposal of elitists to generate the "evolution" he so desires, and that evolution includes a collectivist result.

With almost every major economy on the globe on the verge of collapse and most now desperately inflating, taxing, or outright stealing in order to hide their situation, with multiple tinderbox environments being facilitated in the Pacific with China, North Korea, and Japan, and in the Middle East and Africa with Egypt, Syria, Iran, Pakistan, Yemen, Mali, etc., there is no doubt that we are living in a linchpin-rich era. It is inevitable that one or more of these explosive tension points will erupt and cause a chain reaction around the planet. The linchpin and the chain reaction will become the focus of our epoch, rather than the men who made them possible in the first place.

Strangely, Casti’s theory was even recently featured in an episode of the ABC mystery/drama show “Castle”, called “Linchpin” (what else?), in which a writer turned detective uncovers a plot by a “shadow group” to use the research of the innocent Dr. Nelson Blakely (apparently based on Casti) to initiate a collapse of the U.S. economy by assassinating the ten-year-old daughter of a prominent Chinese businessman, triggering a dump of U.S. Treasuries by China and fomenting WWIII:

Now, I think anyone with any sense can see where this is going. Casti and Rand Corporation are giving us a glimpse into the future of propaganda. This is what will be written in our children’s history books in the globalists have their way. The fact that Linchpin Theory is featured in a primetime television show at all is a testament to Rand Corporation’s influence in the media. But, as for the wider picture, are the trigger points around us really just a product of complex coincidence?

Not a chance.

Each major global hot-spot today can easily be linked back to the designs of international corporate and banking interests and the puppet governments they use as messengers. Casti claims that “X-events” and “linchpins” cannot be accurately predicted, but it would seem that they can certainly be purposely created.

The globalists have stretched the whole of the world thin. They have removed almost every pillar of support from the edifice around us, and like a giant game of Jenga, are waiting for the final piece to be removed, causing the teetering structure to crumble. Once this calamity occurs, they will call it a random act of fate, or a mathematical inevitability of an overly complex system. They will say that they are not to blame. That we were in the midst of “recovery”. That they could not have seen it coming.

Their solution will be predictable. They will state that in order to avoid such future destruction, the global framework must be “simplified”, and what better way to simplify the world than to end national sovereignty, dissolve all borders, and centralize nation states under a single economic and political ideal?

Is it the Hegelian Dialectic all over again? Yes. Is it old hat feudalism and distraction? Yes. But, I have to hand it to Casti and Rand Corporation; they certainly have refined the argument for collectivism, centralization, technocracy, slavery, moral relativism, and false-flag dupery down to a near science…

Yeah, you see this on display in movies like "Watchmen" where a terror attack that claims millions of lives in a city is committed in order to stop a potential global conflict, which would've claimed billions of lives, and bring humanity "together". Of course, "together" under what or whom is never stated. Naturally they play up the looming global conflict as just the ultimate result of a complex set of events and "human nature", rather than the deliberate actions of a elite few. Anyway, the idea of sacrificing a few million people in order to push humanity in a new "better" direction is there for the viewers consumption.

As the author of this article states, there are other ways to make things better for humanity, the problem the elite have is that they don't want any real changes to effect their positions. THAT'S WHAT IT'S REALLY ALL ABOUT. They're like selfish little children that don't want their good thing affected by the needs of the people or the planet, so they try to trap us in a way of thinking that the only way for things to change for the better is for ALL of the needed sacrifices to fall on the shoulders of the general population. The myth of "human caused climate change" is a good example of this.

Be it through the covert sacrifice of our god given rights, our sovereignty, our economy, our standard of living, or our lives; the elites want to see the world remade in their desired imagine, but at the same time they don't want to be touched during the whole process. If that's not the height of selfishness and arrogance, I don't know what is.

The reason they make television shows that mirror their future plans is to trick people into remembering details from the show and confuse them with real world events. Air a show where Syria bombs Israel with chemical weapons and then months later set up a false flag similar. People take real life details and combine them with memories from the show to create a new reality. Mind control

The Hebrew word for elite is nasa, and it means to lift up, to exalt, lofty, etc. (Strong's # 5375). And the Hebrew word for chosen leader is nasi or nazi(#5387). THEY (The Hebrew Elites of YaH-WHo?) believe God chose them for this role as world leaders.

The sad thing about all of this is this: NOTHING plays out like it is intended. Case-n-point. As a young boy/man... ever think out a fight you had/might have. Said to yourself (hindsight) If I only did this! or that! Man I would have whooped him!" or "When he moves in, I'll do this and that, and that will end in victory for me!" But of course... It never plays out like it should. My point? WAR to slaughter freedom & Democracy, and gather remaining scavenger slaves as peasant minions to serve the lofty, wine drinking, and wealthy elite, sitting high in their thrones above the dusty fields- worked by socialist scum at meager wages... Sounds like an ideal plan for elite-scum... But I venture to guess it'll be more like this: "WAR, factories smoldering, manufacturing destroyed, resource stocks dwindling, bands upon bands of rebels storming the bunker.. drones destroyed when landed on strips... no one to refuel them... must get out, but savages will kill us! What to do! (Ok, their now screwed, but guess what? The whole world is in ruins too... thanks jerks! I hope you get barbequed!)

The one issue getting short shrift here is the connection to Albert Pike, Mazzini and specific long range objectives of the dark side of Freemasonry.
According to William Guy Carr, the following was excerpted from a letter to Giusseppe Mazzini from Albert Pike, dated August 15, 1871:

"The First World War must be brought about in order to permit the Illuminati to overthrow the power of the Czars in Russia and of making that country a fortress of atheistic Communism. The divergences caused by the "agentur" (agents) of the Illuminati between the British and Germanic Empires will be used to foment this war. At the end of the war, Communism will be built and used in order to destroy the other governments and in order to weaken the religions."
"The Second World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences between the Fascists and the political Zionists. This war must be brought about so that Nazism is destroyed and that the political Zionism be strong enough to institute a sovereign state of Israel in Palestine. During the Second World War, International Communism must become strong enough in order to balance Christendom, which would be then restrained and held in check until the time when we would need it for the final social cataclysm."
"The Third World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences caused by the "agentur" of the "Illuminati" between the political Zionists and the leaders of Islamic World. The war must be conducted in such a way that Islam (the Moslem Arabic World) and political Zionism (the State of Israel) mutually destroy each other. Meanwhile the other nations, once more divided on this issue will be constrained to fight to the point of complete physical, moral, spiritual and economical exhaustion...We shall unleash the Nihilists and the atheists, and we shall provoke a formidable social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to the nations the effect of absolute atheism, origin of savagery and of the most bloody turmoil. Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with Christianity, whose deistic spirits will from that moment be without compass or direction, anxious for an ideal, but without knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view. This manifestation will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time."3

It could not be less true to say that the National Socialists - who people have been trained to call "nazis" ! encouraged selfishness.

That is the very opposite of what Hitler believed and taught!

The very opposite.

Corporate America + U.S. Government (Facism) rule through their hierarchical collective organizations and chit systems like the Dollar or the Yen (coming to you soon)

A unique independent volunteer system is almost ready to be set up in over 3,000 decentralized counties nation-wide, owned and operated by independent professional volunteers who are also users of the system under the Guidelines..

Why? Because no country or despote should be able to own the knowledge, skills, talents and wisdom of the people. ( Its called SLAVERY. The disappearing Middle Class is just now beginning to find this out).,

Check out PeopleSHARE Services on the web ... its now in transition to operated through a volunteer service format... It has strong accountability and high integrity features ... for adults AND teenagers!

It's currency,( the MOTIVATIONS that facilitates the system are .... ...DRUM ROLL PLEASE... your own strong personally-identified feelings of Relief/Peace, Joy &/or Gratitude !) This is how people who Offer OR Request Services and Goods will create the glue that holds transactions together.

Those who understand what is being said here will be the survivors. Find out more about "How IT Works"!

We've been dummied down for so long,that we've forgotten how currency and marketing strategies were created in the first place! !
Do a search on "Century of the Self" to get the whole picture of how and why we now live in a Slave Economy. (There is a way out!)

Local Free Economies can be cooperative, complimentary and very competitive to cash/credit AND the new "cashless society" that Bill Gates believes in so ferverently.!

In the Fascist/Cashless Society system, the government takes money directly out of your bank accounts, etc ... for whatever you chose to "purchase" and makes purchases for you?! (for a "fee" of course?!) And for your convenience and safety too, until pretense about this take-over is no longer necessary.

Thank You Everyone,. for all you do to keep Freedom alive and well!

Order out of chaos. Nothing happens in the science of political economy unless it was planed that way. The Elite Politicians, Bankers and the Industialist CABAL of the NWO that are members of the Illuminai are all in collusion. It's called Intrinsic and constructive fraud, conspiracy to commit fraud, check kiting and couterfeigting.

The Shadow Government of the NEO Feudal System rule from benind the scenes. They pull the strings of their political puppet hacks that are in congress.

The world is governed by very different personages from what is immagined by those who are not behind the scenes.

Financial and economic collapses are scientifically created by the banks. There is no such thing as the accidental theory of economics. If a global financial and economic collapse happens, you can be sure that it was planed that way.

This financial crisis will still be further magnified by the effects of an economic crisis which will stop dealing on the exchanges and bring industry to a standstil. The internatiional bankers shall create by all secret sub-teranian methods open to them and with the aid of gold which in all their hands, an international economic crisis that will throw whole mobs of workers on the streets throughout all the countries of the world.

The International Bankers have abscounded with the National Treasury and usurped the peoples wealth. All our gold has been mortgaged to the bankers.

Well predicted in Christian Scripture for over 2,000 years. The rule of merchants and the taxes of the enslaved recipients of the mark of the beast is an infalliable prediction. It's appearance is the logical conclusion of the end workings of evil men.These, surprising, do not fear the Almightly God who gave this prediction, or have lied to themselves, thinking they will prevail over the Almighty in HIs Total War against them.God is Good, and it is not His Will that His creations be submissive to wickedness. He has drawn a line in the sand of time. The Abomination of Desolation. His Prince, Michael ,will stand up. Google my name and you will led to what this scripure refers to.
