“The only thing I will add here, is that I have always felt, in many ways, that I was a Global citizen, even though my birthing and residence was in the United States. Ben makes this point at the end, “The big blockage remains on Asians and other countries being allowed to spend their money in Europe and the US without impediment. If that becomes possible, Europeans and Americans will be hired in large quantities to engage is a massive campaign to end poverty, stop environmental destruction and start a new age.” And to me, this means allowing all to work together AS a Global Community is where we would do well to go. This will undoubtedly be touted by a few as meaning, “China wants to buy out the US”, and presented as a fear-based interpretation.
But I would say to those who stand and say that “Only my country is the best”, and so on, are missing the point of Global Community. That is who we are.
When historical events are taking place, the daily rush of news event can fog the vision. We have entered such a time of fog now
The vast majority of the world’s money is now controlled by non-Westerners who have a very different agenda from that of the people who have been ruling the West and most of the world since at least 300 years ago.
Right now in the West, the regime change against bankster controlled criminal government has started with Iceland but it will end with the United States and the Vatican.
What happened to make the fall of the Soviet Union inevitable… was the theft of the Soviet Union’s foreign exchange reserves that made the collapse a matter of time…. What we are seeing in the West is the same.
The money making machine at the Federal Reserve Board has been closed down so collapse is inevitable.
For the past 30 years the United States and Europe (as a whole) have been running a trade deficit with the rest of the world.
What is now happening is that the creditor nations have stopped issuing new credit… That is why there is now a 147 nation alliance, led by Brazil, Russia, India, China and Africa that is telling the Western nations they will not buy their bonds or other “financial products.”
…time is on the side of the 147 nation alliance. The big problem for the West is that the Western nations have “out-sourced” most of their industrial infrastructure.
…the money being earned at Chinese or ASEAN export factories is not being spent on Western IOUs… [but] on “real” things like real-estate, commodities and factories.
What this means is that both the EU as a whole and the United States are bankrupt but are refusing to admit it.
…Chinese are perceived by the rest of the world as arriving with bags of money and business plans while Western nations arrive with guns and plans for mayhem. Guess who is losing and who is making friends…?
The big blockage remains on Asians and other countries being allowed to spend their money in Europe and the US without impediment.
If that becomes possible, Europeans and Americans will be hired in large quantities to engage is a massive campaign to end poverty, stop environmental destruction and start a new age.”
