In this global mess known as the interdependent world economy, one thing is certain – fantasy trumps
substance. How else to explain what goes on daily in the financial markets, in the corporate board rooms or on the streets
where you live. Prosperity is an illusion. Wealth is not the same as an efficient model of affluence creation.
Practical economic commerce by definition requires sensible business transactions, meaningful production endeavors and consistent
stability in financial marketplace exchanges. There is never a guarantee of success or profit. Notwithstanding,
to establish an engine of economic generation, the core principles of trade must be employed. Savvy observers of the
marketplace recognize that the fundamentals of business are virtually absent in the transactions that pass for international
trade. Even worse, domestic commercial activity suffers from an occupational hazard that pays no compensation.
That peril is the lack of viability.
Item: can a service economy sustain a society?
It is largely accepted that making things is less important than providing a service function. The
economy of scale has seldom been more evident than in the global use of cheap labor in the manufacturing of everything that
Americans consume. Any experienced entrepreneur understands the need to control costs. Labor has always been the
major headache in running a business. Increasing productivity is the magic trick that bolsters the bottom line.
Now that foreign workers can be the busy bees at wages that shame any native born citizen, the big players seek to participate
on an international dimension. With robotic manufacturing, either by men or machines, the prospects for local
employment become distant. Coolies can’t demand union fringe benefits. Competing solely against overseas
slave labor wages is a sure way into national bankruptcy.
By default what is left for future generations is a career in contract labor or the service segment of the
economy. Contract work is gypsy employment. Service tasks pay less than skilled expertise. Both are void
of a pay scale for a living wage. Yet, expansion in service jobs seems to be one of the only growth industries.
But what industry is actually produced in a service function? The nature of waiting on tables assumes that customers
have the ability to pay. If the vast majority of patrons derive their income from other service related employ, where
do the basic ingredients that produce the provisions for society come from? Importing essentials is like betting that
your suppliers want or need your business. Stop paying the tab and see how long your purveyor carries your account.
Is a service based economy really viable?
Item: can unearned income sustain a society?
The alternative to working for a living is to invest. Few miracles of modern civilization are more
cherished than the sorcery of making money out of capital. The notion that investing is the path to the promise land
motivates the more sophisticated. Working for wages is the hard way to affluence. So speculate and gamble your
way to enhance your income. Sounds fine in theory, but how can a society prosper over time, when venture speculation
is the basis for economic activity? Return on capital is the measure by which all is judged, but how do you achieve
a real rate of return when price inflation is institutionalized and the currency is continually debased as purchasing value
evaporates? The merry-go-round of debt creation to service interest payment is spin that accelerates to g-force centrifuge
levels that are unsustainable. At some point the organism perishes.
Without honest money real estate is not refugee. The terra firma is permanent but the buildings affixed
to the land have a limited useful life. When rents are unable to carry the expense of ownership can anyone reasonably
profess that real estate is an investment? Inflated prices, does not produce improved true value. A sane society
must strive to craft stable purchasing worth for its legal tender or succumb to the asylum of casino avarice. Debt used
as payment for necessities has a limited reprieve. Balance of payment trade shortfalls that finance excess, drain vital
blood from the domestic economy. How long can a society remain viable under these economic conditions?
Item: can government spending sustain a society?
Even the most unintelligent economist should know that government is the prime impediment upon any financial
system. The state is only a consumer of treasure, most of the time a squanderer and a reckless spender. Government
deficit spending is the means to finance shortages in tax collection. What rational citizen concludes they are under
taxed? The culture of government dependency is inherently unsound and inconsistent with any formula for economic prosperity.
Big government guarantees reduced individual economic independence. A society that relinquishes its self-sufficiency
surrenders its trade and industry to sinister financial manipulation. Politicians claim to be public servants while
they operate as sycophants for robber barons. Disparity in income is the natural result in class status, talent quotient
and applied dedication. However, when the gap between the mega rich and median families, resemble the primeval historic
gulf between the poor and rich, can a modern society be viable?
When the majority of national income is derived from some form of government employment, pension, social
program, subsidy or state contract; the economic framework transitions from free enterprise into state/capitalism. Today,
the United States has regretfully adopted the global transnational corporate economy as national policy. The ultimate
result from globalization clearly achieves the fundamental objectives within the Communist Manifesto. The ten planks have been effectively realized as the country has been destroyed under a continuous and relentless
assault for well over a century. Read into the plan the actual current circumstance that has befallen our nation.
1. Abolition of property in land and application of all rents of land to public purposes.
property tax, eminent domain confiscation, planning and zoning prohibition
2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.
13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, IRS tyranny
3. Abolition of all rights of inheritance.
Confiscator estate and gift taxes
4. Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels.
Non payment of property tax = loss
5. Centralization of credit in the banks of the state, by means of a national bank with state capital and
an exclusive monopoly.
Federal Reserve Banking – fractional fiat currency fraud
6. Centralization of the means of communication and transport in the hands of the state.
media monopolies, Interstate Commerce Commission, FAA homeland security
7. Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the state; the bringing into cultivation
of waste lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan. Subsidy of corporate agriculture,
Bureau Land Management, Environmental regulations
8. Equal obligation of all to work. Establishment of industrial armies, especially for agriculture.
of the dependence government culture, equal requirement of duty = state chattel standing
9. Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries; gradual abolition of all the distinction between
town and country by a more equable distribution of the populace over the country.
Walmartization of the economy, conglomerate
control, Katrina relocation of undesirables
10. Free education for all children in public schools. Abolition of children's factory labor in its present
form. Combination of education with industrial production, etc.
NEA Sovietization of State ‘Secular Humanism’
curriculum, deconstruction of history under the propaganda of media lies
Can any society be viable under the above conditions of control?
So what does viable mean? The definition for the term indicates:
capable of being done with means
at hand and circumstances as they are [syn: feasible, practicable, workable]
capable of life or normal growth and development;
Circumstance as they are, forbids the normal growth and development of our homeland as it originally existed.
Surely, the socialist gulag we live under is not consistent with the founding of our country or viable as an independent society,
where the people are the source of lawful authority. The economy is managed as if it is a collective farm, operating
under a five year plan. The end results of adopting communist objectives and claiming that the culture and economy still
functions as capitalism, demonstrates the extent of the delusion that has taken hold on society. The special status
of favored corporate organizations produces enormous advantages for those companies and effectively eliminates any real and
serious competition. Monopolistic joint ventures with their government patron partners, is the reality. What serves
the insider interests for the privileged few, restricts and harms the benefit of the public good.
The net end outcome converts into a lower standard of living for the vast majority that toils to keep the
illicit elite system beating down the natural and rightful aspirations of the ordinary citizens. Can anyone honestly
assert that this economic blueprint builds a better society? The commercial strength of America has always rested upon
expanding a viable middle class. The super select sapping of the concrete affluence from the average family can only
lead to an unjust society.
The imposition of Free Trade has produced the largest export of self-sufficiency for a temporary appearance
of cheap foreign imports. A United States based upon public corporations that now operate exclusively for the welfare
of select management, special interests and government social control is the decisive cronyism horror. Limited liability
has come to mean virtually no accountability for the participants in the cult of economic betrayal. Viable? Where
are the riches of proportion, directly earned by the productive public? Honest work is degraded, while rampant speculation
has become epidemic. Denying reality has real consequences. Only a comprehensive purge of the structural imbalances
can offer any practical hope. On the present course the only dividend goes to the architects of this twisted construction.
What is left for the folks who labor to keep the complex going?
