intensely focused on increasing their net worth.
You mean like anyone we currently elect to office? What is our option? To put people in leadership positions by lottery? Some people lead, some
follow. Some people want to build incredible wealth, some don't care. That happens with or without an NWO.
I think that if the NWO is indeed implemented, people would be seen as assets, or possessions.
I hate to break it to you, but to people who don't know you personally, you are essentially a "market." Somebody to sell more toilet paper to. To
a politician, you're not a person, you're a vote. You're already depersonalized to a large degree in society. Even on this board, you're a
member number, a bandwidth load to deal with, etc. Your views and activities here (as are mine) are pretty inconsequential.
But a lot of that just has to do with the sheer number of people in the world, and the need to monitor what they're up to so that utilities and goods
and communications resources can be shifted to meet the needs of large groups of people. It's not so much that someone wants to control you. It's
more about someone wanting to sell you something in the most efficient and profitable way possible.
See, that's what it's mostly about. That old saying about the world getting smaller is absolutely accurate. Large groups of people and massive
amounts of raw and manufactured materials move around the planet incredibly fast. Systems need to be monitored and adjusted.
Do you see computer control of traffic lights to adjust for rush hour as an NWO evil, or simply efficient transportation control? Is it a horrible
thing that you when you go to the grocery store there is always enough Coca-Cola for you to buy, even on the hottest holidays? Because the Coke
people have a pretty good statistical estimate you'll be there looking for Coke. Extensive and rapid monitoring and adjustment of resources.
Now, expand that to a global scale. These days, it doesn't take much to throw everything into turmoil. Unlike in the past, individuals don't
maintain large amounts of food or water or anything else in their homes to keep them going for more than a few days. Loss of electrical power or
communications can almost instantly hurt thousands or even millions of people. A revolution, after all, has been said to be only two meals away.
Natural catastrophes likewise, and require even faster response to keep millions from potentially dying.
So if a small asteroid smashes into Paraguay, how are we prepared to deal with that? As it is now, we rely on private organizations or individual
governments to cobble together some kind of loose, inefficient, and very expensive relief effort. Even a relatively small impact would have a
devastating effect on the rest of the world, possibly leading to all kinds civil unrest, violence, and suffering.
The NWO, however, because of its ability to monitor and take command and control of the movement of goods and people, would already have had the
asteroid in its sights, will have mobilized evacuation efforts and response teams in nearby countries, and have everything in place. The overall
damage done would be minimized, and rather than society disintegrating and throwing us back into some kind of Dark Ages, it could continue. Depending
on the size of the impact, the NWO might be the only thing standing between us and extinction.
Because these days, world is that small. The depersonalization and viewing people as an asset or resource has more to do with the small size of the
world and the advance of technology. Not the NWO.
Now, if you are the kind of person who feels like they have a lot of personal secrets they want to keep for some reason, you're not going to like
more monitoring and controlling, even though nobody (including the NWO) really cares about or wants to spend the time and money to bother with your
petty secrets unless they're illegal or dangerous to others.
But then, if you are really that kind of person, then you already feel that you're being monitored too much, and that your "freedoms" are
threatened. And you also probably aren't posting here on an internationally accessed Internet forum, where you know posts are relatively easy to
monitor and trace.
