Supposedly there are three reasons for this drastic change in oil prices.
1.) The Middle East refuses to cut oil production in order to dilute the price so American oil producers (fracking/shale) won’t be able to compete. Oil must cost $77 per barrel minimum for fracking/shale production to be profitable. A form of economic warfare aimed at America.
2.) Russia’s economic engine is mainly based upon oil and natural gas production. When prices go down the Russian economy suffers. Russia (Putin) is at great odds with the United States (Obama) over Ukraine. A form of economic warfare aimed at Russia.
3.) It has been hypothesized that the world’s populace will see a strong deflationary period followed by an extreme inflationary period. Some theorists hold that this is a planned event related to toxic derivatives and credit bubbles “popping” similar to the housing market market meltdown in 2008.
The first two examples seem logical. Economic warfare or unhealthy competition has been a staple for international corporations and governments for ages. Although the results can be less predictable when the world economy is sliding towards a deflationary period. This brings me to example three.
We are currently experiencing a strong inflationary period. The price of precious metals and food have exploded upward. The surge over the past couple years has been large. So my question is how will this deflationary period affect the price of precious metals and food? Will prices go down? Will milk and meat cost less? Gold and silver have dropped recently but is this drop related to real deflation (a shrinking money supply) as opposed to some mysterious, hedge fund sell off in precious metals? Seems more likely some form of market manipulation is happening. The money supply isn’t shrinking.
I’m beginning to side with the notion that a true deflationary period will arrive though. What I mean is that the money supply will shrink in the future. The Federal Reserve has been printing tons of US Dollars with their QE program and it will end someday. The banks will make it extremely difficult to get a loan, interest rates will rise, and the economy will retract even more. A lot of people will lose jobs on top of the millions who have already lost jobs. If the supposed secondary inflation shows up (maybe hyperinflation) no one will be able to afford anything… creating more dependency upon government social programs, welfare, and handouts.
It is the perfect game to play when squeezing out the Middle Class, increasing the ranks of the low-income and the homeless, thereby creating more power over The People for the government and their globalist backers.
What some call a New World Order or a One World Government, I simply term realignment. Through the power of worldwide market manipulation, local economic oppression, intimidation, fueling racial discord, socialist media lies… the notion of independence (a state of mind created by those in power) will ultimately be realigned for The People. A system of defined equality, fairness, and social justice will rise from the lies we are fed today (the attacks on our current way of life).
Freedom used to mean the ability for one to go out into the world and make a name for him or herself through the power of their own hard work. Whether one wanted to own a business, be a famous star, or run the family farm, freedom was protected and cherished. The ability to express one’s self, have a family, follow their religion, and buy/sell/trade in a fair way was respected.
The future will define freedom as one who has the ability to remain free from bullying, emotional “damage”, violent acts or images, competitive sports, people who think differently, racial differences, past cultural heritage, and guns.
Freedom will also be defined as the ability of one to live his or her own life alone – free from familial expectations and tradition in order to experiment with one’s self and body in activities espoused by the government as liberating and in touch with one’s self.
The followers of this new system will believe that they are stewards of nature by complying with the system and its mandates on what one should eat, where one should live, how one uses transportation, how much energy is used, what one’s hobbies are… and all of these choices will be limited by the very system that claims you are free in those choices.
The populace will maintain their master’s power, control, and manipulation over them willingly. The People will have been dumbed-down enough to know no better yet still be able to acknowledge that anything from the past system is bad and therefore to be discredited in order to maintain the freedom of existing in a zoo-like world.
Security and limited choices will be the calling card of freedom. The past freedoms of the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights will be seen as prehistoric and savage yet a necessary document from the past in order to “advance” the human species into the future. A token to the past. An antiquity.
The past form of independence will be termed as blatantly divisive and an evil division maintained by old white men. The new “independence” will be termed as singular unity with the one… the one system mandated for all. A balance set forth by multiracial programmers from across the globe to create the most equal world yet not so smart beings to occupy it.
A looked after, limited thinking being who knows only how to make a limited choice within the construct of a high tech world will be narrowed down. The outdoors will be deemed dangerous, to be left untouched. Recycled, scented air and reused water of the indoor world will be the norm. Plugging in online for a false, alternative reality will be embraced. Indoors, high-tech, and artificial light will be the foundation of the new world under the realignment.
In the end, reality will be what the overlords make it. Technology will become increasingly more powerful as The People will become less intelligent, less independent, and totally reliant upon artificial intelligence.
Far ahead in the future roles will reverse and mankind will no longer be served by AI but will simply become a part of AI. Humanity as we know it will be lost to machines, bits, and bytes.
