Not sure if about the nefarious plot though I'll entertain all possibilities, but one reason to collapse the system is to clear all the unsustainable
debt from the system. The big reset if you will. Then you can start all over again... wash rinse repeat.
Also US goal could be to be the last man standing, so the situation is bad, but the US would still be on "top" so to speak.
No evidence to back it up as they are just opinions.
>> That makes the MOST sense to me -- either the PTB wants to keep the system from collapsing, because with the status quo -- THEIR money has value.
If the Dollar collapses, everything they've stolen is useless.
On the other hand: if you look at what Goldman Sacks and what the rest of the Wolf Pack is doing -- the US can stay on top by releasing the "hounds"
to game the system and collapse all the economies one by one. While Greece might have had a lot of debt -- almost every country has a lot of debt,
because they've all been running systems that were engineered to favor a connected few. Iceland and Greece listened to Milton Friedman advocates --
the debt that they amassed by going "free market" far surpasses what was caused by social handouts -- which at least go back to the economy.
China has been helping themselves, but their long range plan seems to be to dump everything on the US no matter how cheap or how much they lose money
on the transaction. The reverse of the, "buy whatever is cheapest" import on credit scheme we've been using.
If the Wall Street gamers can round up enough cash by taking out more low-hanging fruit like Greece, they can build up a fund big enough to short any
currency. So the balance of trade doesn't matter in the end.
>> The problem is, since we've PRIVATIZED most of our military, we've got private corporations that make our weapons and half our overseas troops
are mercenaries. A good portion of them, are not even US citizens. So GM and Blackwater can go to the highest bidder.
So if the Wolf Pack wins -- then the US can be on top -- even though MOST of us will be on the bottom forever in debt to some foreign owned company,
but as well, those foreign nations will have people in debt and working for a company that is not controlled in THEIR country. This Balkanization is
how the USSR kept control.
If the Wolf Pack loses, then we lose the Mercenaries and the weapons manufacturing because they are as loyal as the bank deposit.
>> Seems like we are screwed both ways. A total economic collapse is going to be a hardship -- but I can SEE coming out of servitude with that. If the
Robber Barons win, then the put the debt wherever they want it, because the game is fixed.
