Trade treaties, mega-corporations, and worldwide socialism


By Jon Rappoport

(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, The Matrix Revealed, click here.)

“The ever-emerging popular image of socialism: a humane government colossus controls the means of production for the benefit of the people; and share-the-wealth at all levels of society comes alive. This is political theory for children in a condition of arrested development—for example, college students and Hollywood actors who long for lunch at the White House.” (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)

I use the loaded word “socialism” in the headline, because it’s important to understand that Globalism is a form of socialism.

That may not sit well with some people, because they believe in the socialism team and they think that team is against Globalism. Nothing could be further from the truth. It’s about time they woke up.

Globalism was born out of the triumphs of cutthroat capitalists like Rockefeller, and out of the triumphs of international bankers like Rothschild and Warburg. These men made a decision quite natural for them: “By hook and by crook I’ve acquired my fortune; now I want a monopoly; I want to cut out the competition; I want empire; therefore, I have to control governments; I want to make governments more powerful, so by controlling them I control society.”

What better way to make governments more powerful than by forming a long-term (criminal) collaboration with mega-corporations, including major banks?

Governments plus giant corporations. Does that equal socialism?

You can quibble and say the corporations are really in charge and therefore this arrangement isn’t socialism. Call it oligarchy. Call it runaway capitalism or the corporate state.

The collaboration among governments, mega-corporations, and bankers is the triangle. It’s the engine of control. It grossly limits freedom. It claims, through propaganda, that its “government wing” is for the people. That’s utter nonsense, of course.

Today’s socialists believe government is the answer to the control of society by big money and big greed. That’s a delusion. The governments are on the side of big money.

Socialists also like to say that governments are weak sisters in the pocket of the corporations, and therefore the governments must become stronger. Another dangerous fantasy.

The last time I looked at America, for example, the government had an extensive military, a dizzying number of spying agencies, and a gigantic Justice Department that could make arrests and put criminals on trial. If that’s weak, what’s strong?

Who are the major money men of Wall Street the US government has thrown in prison? Who are the mega-corporate thugs the government has sent away for life terms?

The government is firmly in bed with the corporations. Committed. Purposefully.

All the trade treaties—GATT, NAFTA, CAFTA, the TPP, etc.—are basically instruments of the government-corporate collaboration. They strengthen the corporations and they strengthen the de facto global management system, which is government on a far larger scale.

Securing monopoly requires controlling governments and making those governments more and more repressive, in order to put populations under control.

It makes perfect sense, if you’re a billionaire/ trillionaire sociopath.

When I say “Globalists controlling governments,” I’m talking about a partnership, and if one partner, equipped with armies, spies, and prosecutors, surrenders to the other partner, that’s a form of extreme cowardice.

Just one example: the current Globalist TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership) negotiation is secret, as are the details of the treaty. But any legislator in any of the 12 member nations could step out of the shadows and communicate everything he knows about what’s in the treaty…if he wanted to.

In the US, a senator might, at the extreme, spend a night in jail for violating Executive Branch regulations on classified data.

He would also spark a much needed Constitutional crisis, and he would become a popular hero.

But no; so far, no US Senator or Congressman has dared to spill all the beans.

Voluntary surrender of power.

Of course, when government surrenders its powers long enough (since roughly 1913 in the US), and when Globalists/Socialists are brought into one key government position after another, up to and including the Presidency, the corruption runs very, very deep.

Does this sound like a benign State that wants to do everything it can to help the people?

Does this sound like “heraldic Socialism” determined to build a peaceful and fair society?

Right now, President Obama is running around in a panic, trying to put together enough Congressional votes to pass the TPP. Does that sound like a man who wants to rescue the American people from the mega-corporations?

The so-called classic definition of socialism: government controls the means of production.

Just change that a bit: government, in criminal collaboration with mega-corporations, controls the means of production.

Split hairs if you want to; but it’s a distinction without a difference.

George Bush the Elder (Globalist), who briefly served as the director of the CIA and a director of the Council on Foreign Relations (Rockefeller/Globalist powerhouse), ran for a second term in the White House against neophyte Bill Clinton (Globalist). Under ordinary circumstances, there was no way Bush could have lost. But it was Globalist vs. Globalist. A distinction without a difference.

There are still hope-and-change people out there who wonder how their man, Obama, could be supporting Monsanto. They haven’t gotten the memo yet. Obama is a Globalist. Monsanto is a mega-corporation. GMO crops? Roundup? The health dangers of GMOs and pesticides? Irrelevant.

None Dare Call It Conspiracy by Gary Allen, 1971:

“…most of us believe socialism is what the socialists want us to believe it is—a share-the wealth program… Here in the reality of socialism you have a tiny oligarchial clique at the top, usually numbering no more than three percent of the total population, controlling the total wealth, total production and the very lives of the other ninety-seven percent.

“…If one understands that socialism is not a share-the-wealth program, but is in reality a method to consolidate and control the wealth, then the seeming paradox of super-rich men promoting socialism becomes no paradox at all. Instead it becomes the logical, even the perfect tool of power-seeking megalomaniacs.”

In America, untold numbers of young college students are being conscripted into the illusion of government-as-savior. Matriculating on the basis of government student loans, having to go deep into debt to pay back those loans, these young people are already wards of the State. For them, the only question is: how can they minimize the interest on the loans? Otherwise, they see government and its support of politically correct behavior and speech as conditioning mechanisms leading to “a better world.” This is Pathetic Mind Control 101.

As part of this political correctness, the students are taught to rail against big corporations, never realizing their adored Mommy-Daddy Government is an active partner in crime with the corporations.

“Reform government.” “Make government better.” Make government more responsive to the people.” This is like hoping to stage a conciliatory dialogue with a T-Rex in Jurassic Park.

Socialism—the nightmare it represents—is the premier vehicle for those super-rich men who have limitless political goals that add up to population control.

  1. We tend to believe it’s the corporations “in charge” of the governments, and although this is true, corporations are owned by people and the wealthiest people on the planet own the majority of the most powerful corporations. Some have tried to figure out the web of ownership and power these people exert through global corporations. It’s difficult to do since the super wealthy are able to hide what they own. It may be true that gains are privatized and losses are socialized, but it is a new form of fascism we’re seeing. Traditional socialism was able to provide some benefits to regular working folks and the poor. These things are systematically being taken away. If you look at the increased military actions and the installation of brutal police states, this is indicative of what the overlords think is around the corner.

  2. Corporations should go the way of the dinosaur…this whole thing about ‘connection’ is absurd. the gold collar criminals want to control the wealth so they do not have to work. A bunch of soft handed bozo’s.

  3. All corrupt systems of governance are “in reality a method to consolidate and control the wealth” and remain so as long as real democratic institutions like a free press; broad, diverse education; unrigged voting machines; independent judiciary; anticorruption authority etc are in place and healthy.
    As you know, Jon, there is a word for “government, in criminal collaboration with mega-corporations” and it isn’t socialism – it’s fascism.
    Almost all Western nations have been socialist democracies (sullied by monopolist psuedo-capitalism) since the 1930s, or after ratifying the UN International Bill of Rights in the late ’40s and the ’50s at the latest; that’s why so many of them are still the envy of the rest of the world.
    Sure, it’s all an ad hoc bandaid to the slowly healing wounds engendered by millennia of racist, nationalist feudalism – but what would you suggest we do in the face of automated economies and workforces, where finding enough work to survive is not only impossible for all but also unnecessary and undesirable – and in a world in which large slabs of the population are too old to work?
    Ra-raing and repeating the antiglobalst polemic will always find you admirers (I’m one of them btw), particularly in the delusional gun-toting USA where people imagine they’re exceptional, bold and free when all they’re doing is propping up and actively working for a nefarious, fascist globalist system – but it isn’t really helpful if all you can do is equate ‘socialism’ with oligarchy. That’s simplistic to the point of misleading.
    Have a reread of the International Bill of Rights. Or perhaps you have better solutions you haven’t yet deigned to share with us?

  4. Governments plus giant corporations does not equal socialism. It is called fascism.

    • Just like the National Socialists, Nazi for short
      All governmental “types” end up with an elite oligarchy ruling over the slaves. Some are blatant with their hatred of the masses….like socialism. but at the core all governments fear and hate humanity.

  5. Being an adult means you no longer need to be governed. Grow up.

    • Anarchy means ‘no rulers’, not no government or governance. When people grow up they realise provision has to be made for the halt, the lame and the weak in all civilised societies worth the name. Perhaps you have a better solution than the one which has made the West so enviable to the rest of the world – (doubtless faulted, frail and all too human) democratic socialism, such as is practiced in all advanced nations beyond feudal dictatorship level.
      Of course, having no actual rulers would be so much better!
