As the difference between the haves and have nots widens and awakens common every day citizens throughout the world of an unjust and unfair global order, those all powerful elites seem to be more and more concerned with the shifting paradigm of more and more people questioning their motives, plans, and statements with ever increasing critical thinking.

Now, Kissinger has something to say on the matter...
Henry Kissinger on the Assembly of a New World Order

Libya is in civil war, fundamentalist armies are building a self-declared caliphate across Syria and Iraq and Afghanistan's young democracy is on the verge of paralysis. To these troubles are added a resurgence of tensions with Russia and a relationship with China divided between pledges of cooperation and public recrimination. The concept of order that has underpinned the modern era is in crisis.

The search for world order has long been defined almost exclusively by the concepts of Western societies. In the decades following World War II, the U.S.—strengthened in its economy and national confidence—began to take up the torch of international leadership and added a new dimension. A nation founded explicitly on an idea of free and representative governance, the U.S. identified its own rise with the spread of liberty and democracy and credited these forces with an ability to achieve just and lasting peace. The traditional European approach to order had viewed peoples and states as inherently competitive; to constrain the effects of their clashing ambitions, it relied on a balance of power and a concert of enlightened statesmen. The prevalent American view considered people inherently reasonable and inclined toward peaceful compromise and common sense; the spread of democracy was therefore the overarching goal for international order. Free markets would uplift individuals, enrich societies and substitute economic interdependence for traditional international rivalries.

This effort to establish world order has in many ways come to fruition. A plethora of independent sovereign states govern most of the world's territory. The spread of democracy and participatory governance has become a shared aspiration if not a universal reality; global communications and financial networks operate in real time.


But never mind Kissinger, it seems TPTB are increasingly concerned with what Robert David Steele calls The open source revolution is coming and it will conquer the 1% - ex CIA spy

"We are at the end of a five-thousand-year-plus historical process during which human society grew in scale while it abandoned the early indigenous wisdom councils and communal decision-making," he writes in The Open Source Everything Manifesto. "Power was centralised in the hands of increasingly specialised 'elites' and 'experts' who not only failed to achieve all they promised but used secrecy and the control of information to deceive the public into allowing them to retain power over community resources that they ultimately looted."

Today's capitalism, he argues, is inherently predatory and destructive:

"Over the course of the last centuries, the commons was fenced, and everything from agriculture to water was commoditised without regard to the true cost in non-renewable resources. Human beings, who had spent centuries evolving away from slavery, were re-commoditised by the Industrial Era."

Open source everything, in this context, offers us the chance to build on what we've learned through industrialisation, to learn from our mistakes, and catalyse the re-opening of the commons, in the process breaking the grip of defunct power structures and enabling the possibility of prosperity for all.

"Sharing, not secrecy, is the means by which we realise such a lofty destiny as well as create infinite wealth. The wealth of networks, the wealth of knowledge, revolutionary wealth - all can create a nonzero win-win Earth that works for one hundred percent of humanity. This is the 'utopia' that Buckminster Fuller foresaw, now within our reach."

The goal, he concludes, is to reject:

"... concentrated illicitly aggregated and largely phantom wealth in favor of community wealth defined by community knowledge, community sharing of information, and community definition of truth derived in transparency and authenticity, the latter being the ultimate arbiter of shared wealth."

The Open Source Everything Manifesto

There is no doubt revolution in the air everywhere around the world, everyone but TPTB wants it feels it, craves it, and will bring it about...it will come at some point be it tomorrow, next week, or a year or two from now. The only question, what event will be its precipice? Tunisia had a fruit seller sparking the Arab Spring, what will be the spark in western countries?

Perhaps it's the reason for all the wars and conflicts going on these days? Stupidity is on the rise, morality is falling apart, it sure helps TPTB to keep the population distracted.

What are the odds that people will wake up and decide not to fight? Or not to have another pointless global war? I suspect there's too much nonsense going on in the world these days, we are getting far away from being rational as a whole. And that's not a good sign.

I can't believe Kissinger is still alive and coherent.

That was a whole lot of info on speed read. Who spoke before him? He was referring to his topic.

I half agree, I think there are certain portions of society who are becoming more dumbed-down and losing morality than others, yet there are still others moving in the opposite direction - all pending I think on their ability to seek alternate avenues of information and have an open mind. I do think there is way too much nonsense like you and it is troubling. The question I would ask though is what are the odds people will realize depending upon one another, their neighbors, will solve many of their problems and put a great dent in TPTB (especially the corporations) and what are the odds they will stop funding the governments they are in so much grievance with?

I made it through Kissinger's block of quoted statement as far as "enlightened statesmen" before a gag reflex cautioned me to proceed further with care. Even in his latest attempt to personify the contemporary with his venerated blessing, Kissinger cannot refrain from self glorification of the leadership model he once embodied. His words and deeds long ago eclipsed his relevance to society. Even on the verge of the unknown country the man attempts to poison us with well written celebration of historical propaganda. I cannot help but wonder just how much of the "The spread of democracy and participatory governance" Mr. Kissinger privately credits himself with authoring.

Speaking to the Open Source Everything Manifesto, and while Mr. Steele talks an interesting game, I remain wary of those whom I perceive out to make a buck on revolution. I also fear the ignition of revolution in the West--much more so than whatever spark may be responsible for setting it off. The general stability of the America I know dates back to the end of the Depression. Gaming the fall of the system is one thing--an intellectual and highly personal exercise--however living through it or surviving its process is another matter none among us can fully grasp.

Interesting. Kissinger, like him or not, is a highly intelligent individual.
I don't know much about the R.D. Steele fellow. He is on to something it is true,
yet I am always wary of Utopian philosophies. The underlying reasons being, Historical
Examples in the past, and the fundamental Flaws that are inherent with us Human beings.
Great Thread. S&F reply to: AllSourceIntel

Yes, I had the same reaction and thought to myself about Panama, Vietnam, Cambodia, Chile, Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran, overthrowing democratically elected governments and installing dictators with support, funding, and weapons, etc and this "spread of democracy and participatory governance" he spoke of...most especially during his time of influence. I am surprised he still speaks so confidently in the face of these facts.

I couldn't agree more and much from what I've seen from Steele has been free, it is this latest book I think that is not. Nonetheless, I share the sentiment as you do that the profit seekers should be taken with a grain of salt. Also, we should seek a peaceful revolution rather than a violent one...as I say, if we speak with our money by not giving it, and not participating in "the game" so to say, it would have tremendous effect.

Historically those that want to "share everything" and have "utopian equality" means everyone is dirt poor.

Except those in rulership, of course, who are a little "more equal" and have that wealth "for the good of the masses"

Excellent thoughts all around, and I share your sentiments on Kissinger.

Well he is and is talking bananas, or at least he has funny ideas about what democracy, (small 'd') is.
USA and UK don't have the big 'D' because they discriminate blatantly...next.
