The Key Sign of A Civilization's Decline

Simon Black over at SOVrEIGN MAN looks at the lessons of civilization's histories and finds the cyclical pattern of "civilized" human experience.

Throughout the 18th century, for example, France was the greatest superpower in Europe, if not the world.

But they became complacent, believing that they had some sort of ‘divine right’ to reign supreme, and that they could be as fiscally irresponsible as they liked.

The French government spent money like drunken sailors; they had substantial welfare programs, free hospitals, and grand monuments.

They held vast territories overseas, engaged in constant warfare, and even had their own intrusive intelligence service that spied on King and subject alike.

Of course, they couldn’t pay for any of this.

French budget deficits were out of control, and they resorted to going heavily into debt and rapidly debasing their currency.

Stop me when this sounds familiar.

The more things change, the more they stay the shame...which is the same thing as defining insane, no?

The French economy ultimately failed, bringing with it a 26-year period of hyperinflation, civil war, military conquest, and genocide.

Looks like we are approaching another critical juncture in the cycle of human civilization's decline. Debt and debasing of the currency is the hallmark of all civilizations in decline...but Simon points out a common feature in the history of collapsing civilizations and empires -  when the rulers in debt are borrowing money to simply pay the interest of the debt, the end of the world as one knows it is nigh.

In 1868, the Ottoman government spent 17% of its entire tax revenue just to pay interest on the debt.

And they were well past the point of no return where they had to borrow money just to pay interest on the money they had already borrowed.

The increased debt meant the interest payments also increased. And three years later in 1871, the government was spending 32% of its tax revenue just to pay interest.

By 1877, the Ottoman government was spending 52% of its tax revenue just to pay interest. And at that point they were finished. They defaulted that year.

This is a common story throughout history.

And we all know what happens when a Government defaults. We have some very recent instances of this very phenomenon occurred 13 years ago in Argentina.
Which brings us to the present day.

USA Inc. is currently in the phase of borrowing money to "service the debt."  SOVrEIGN MAN illuminates the situation:

Taking this into account, total US interest payments in Fiscal Year 2013 were a whopping $415 billion, roughly 17% of total tax revenue. Just like the Ottoman Empire was at in 1868.

Here’s the thing, though– it’s inappropriate to look at total tax revenue when we’re talking about making interest payments.

The IRS collected $2.49 trillion in taxes last year (net of refunds). But of this amount, $891 billion was from payroll tax.

According to FICA and the Social Security Act of 1935, however, this amount is tied directly to funding Social Security and Medicare. It is not to be used for interest payments.

Based on this data, the amount of tax revenue that the US government had available to pay for its operations was $1.599 trillion in FY2013.

This means they actually spent approximately 26% of their available tax revenue just to pay interest last year… a much higher number than 17%.

So apparently, while it looks like we are at the point the Ottoman Empire was at in 1868 -- 9 years away from default in 1877 -- we are actually closer to the Ottoman Empire in 1871's 32% of tax revenue to service the debt.

But the pattern is unmistakable.

Bankster usury to fund indebted Government operations appears to be the primary means for bringing empires to ruin.

Considering the global nature of the economy, the ability to manipulate the masses with mass media propaganda and hide the extent of the problem until it is too late, we probably don't have 6 years until our own inevitable default.

In any case, if one doesn't consider the financial situation of the world's centrally planned economy and the usurious debt nearly all nations are in to the global banking cartel as a sign of impending collapse, you can always look at the arc of the cultural zeitgeist instead, to see we haven't much time left as a "civilized society" -

Conspiritard Food Magic

Awhile back, I discovered a link back to this blog from TheRedPillWomen Reddit and found this comment from dana:

"just so you know, the guy who wrote that piece invented the red pill terminology in an essay in 2009 and hes great when discussing LTR game (he practically invented discussing it on the net, before athol kay), he just happens to have a lot of conspiritard and food magic beliefs as well."

lozlzolzozlozloozlozlzozlzolozlol! Thanks dana, luv ya too! I guess I'll do my best to put the retard into the conspiracy magic!

When it comes to the corporate fast food culture and it's multitude of restaurants that have blanketed all of the lands in our Brave New World Order, there certainly exists a conspiracy, and magic's got nothing to do with it.

It may seem like magic to those you whose brains have become too addled by ingesting copious amounts of aspartame, monosododium glutamate, phenylalanine and high fructose corn syrup in conjunction with a dire lack of adequate nutrients and saturated fats -- and not to mention a steady mind-diet of regularly scheduled mass media programming --  but I assure you, I'm going to break it down real simple-like, so that you too can see what's behind the magic of this retarded conspiracy:



Let’s put aside the debate about antigenic proteins introduced by transgenes in GMO crops. Transgenes are genes from species that are not naturally present in crops of feed or food importance, e.g. spider genes, bacterial genes, viral genes, etc. These transgenes are capable of producing proteins in the plants that have never been in the human diet over the course of human evolution, stretching back thousands, even millions of years. GM proponents and regulators claim pseudo-scientifically that these novel new GM foods are ‘substantially equivalent‘ to conventional ones, despite a lack of human clinical toxicology studies to prove it; or, they claim that these proteins are inconsequential and do not represent a threat to human health, or the health of the biosphere as whole because they say so – a plea to their own self-appointed, baseless authority.

This debate about whether or not GMO foods contain problematic proteins is meant to confuse and distract from the real issue that if you eat corn, soy, cottonseed or canola containing GMO products – and everyone does since nothing is truthfully labeled – you are ingesting glyphosate (aka Roundup) residues.

This substance has literally changed the face of hunger and malnutrition that has plagued humanity throughout the entire history of our species residing on this planet:

The face of human hunger and malnutrition, before RoundUpReady Feed went global...
The face of human hunger and malnutrition, after RoundUpReady Feed went global.

It may not seem obvious, but the burgeoning monstrosity of accumulated flesh stuffing it's face with RoundUpReady Feed in the latter pic is just as ravenously hungry and critically malnourished as the unfortunate denizen of a famine ravaged country in Africa shown in the preceding pic.

Many arguments on teh Interwebz have been spawned over the idea that one single substance can serve as the vector for the epidemic of obesity that has afflicted every corner of the globe.  

"It's the high fructose corn syrup!"
"No, it's the refined carbs!" 
"Wrong, it's move more, eat less!
"Calories in, calories out!" 

Any metropolis, 'burb, village, city, truckstop or town in our Brave New World Order that has more Fast Feed joints and drive-thrus, EBT-approved C-stores, and SNAP-eligible snack shops than farmer's markets, grocery stores and family farms; will have a statistically significant portion of the populace waddling and shambling about in GMO-RoundUpReady fueled-morbid obesity.

"Round Up the's feedin' time!"

Roundup and all the industrially farmed,  genetically modified organisms engineered to withstand it's life destroying properties, is far and away the primary cash cow of one of the most satanic and demonic corporations of our Brave New World Order's corporate cartel-controlled marketplace

GMO-RoundUpReady-based Fast Feed is the primary vector for the plague that has ravaged our nation, engorged our waistlines, clogged our hardened arteries and overloaded our enviro-friendly-reduced-flush toilet bowls.

It doesn't get any simpler than this, retards.

Take your typical "VALUE MEAL" offering at any RoundUpReady Feed distributor found in malls and Shopping Centers all across the blighted plains, the good ole Hamburger, fries and cola combo:

Aren't You Hungry?

* The Hamburger meat comes from feedlot cattle, fattened to slaughter weight with RoundUpReady corn and soy feed, genetically modified and laced with a generous dose of antibiotics to keep the cows alive long enough to reach it's date at maximum weight with a bolt gun lobotomy at the hands of an illegal immigrant in the assembly line at your local USDA-inspected, factory farm slaughter facility.

* The bun is made with bleached white and enriched RoundUpReady wheat flour, RoundUpReady high fructose corn syrup, and partially-hydrogenated RoundUpReady Soybean margarine.

* The fries are manufactured from genetically modified potatoes, then deep fried in rancid, oxidized and overheated RoundUpReady Soybean or RoundUpReady Rapeseed oil (aka "Canola"), and finally salted with processed, iodized table salt adulterated with anti-caking silicate.

* The cheese is made from milk by RoundUpReady grain-fed dairy cattle.

* The cola is essentially carbonated water, flavored with RoundUpReady high fructose corn syrup and colored by caramel manufactured with sugar derived from RoundUpReady sugar beets. Oh, and don't forget to throw in some genetically modified yeast by-product (aka "citric acid") and phosphoric acid to boot.

Every aspect of this ubiquitous, popular sheeple feed combo-value meal is derived from bio-engineered crops genetically modified to be RoundUpReady so that the crops can be planted, grown and harvested on a mass industrial scale, with copious amounts of glyphosate sprayed on the crops repeatedly throughout the plants entire life cycle.

As more and more humans subsist predominantly on Big Ag processed fare composed of RoundUpReady plants and animals fattened up on RoundUpReady feed, mankind will continue to evolve...morphing in size and shape quicker than Darwin could've ever imagined.

The Origins of Genetically Modified Species

If you want to cut to the chase, you can always go straight to the source.

Now that we discussed the food magic part, it's time to get to the conspiritard part.

It's not conspiracy, it's a revolving door:

The FDA's pro-rBGH activities make more sense in light of conflicts of interest between the FDA and the Monsanto corporation. Michael R. Taylor, the FDA's deputy commissioner for policy, wrote the FDA's rBGH labelling guidelines. The guidelines, announced in February 1994, virtually prohibited dairy corporations from making any real distinction between products produced with and without rBGH. To keep rBGH-milk from being "stigmatized" in the marketplace, the FDA announced that labels on non-rBGH products must state that there is no difference between rBGH and the naturally occurring hormone.

In March 1994, Taylor was publicly exposed as a former lawyer for the Monsanto corporation for seven years. While working for Monsanto, Taylor had prepared a memo for the company as to whether or not it would be constitutional for states to erect labelling laws concerning rBGH dairy products. In other words. Taylor helped Monsanto figure out whether or not the corporation could sue states or companies that wanted to tell the public that their products were free of Monsanto's drug.

Taylor wasn't the only FDA official involved in rBGI-1 policy who had worked for Monsanto. Margaret Miller, deputy director of the FDA's Office of New Animal Drugs was a former Monsanto research scientist who had worked on Monsanto's rBGH safety studies up until 1989. Suzanne Sechen was a primary reviewer for rBGH in the Office of New Animal Drugs between 1988 and 1990. Before coming to the FDA. she had done research for several Monsanto-funded rBGH studies as a graduate student at Cornell University. Her professor was one of Monsanto's university consultants and a known rBGH promoter.

Remarkably. the GAO determined in a 1994 investigation that these officials' former association with the Monsanto corporation did not pose a conflict of interest.


It couldn't be a conspiracy...
