A Brief History of The Future by Jacques Attali (2006) outlines the elite's agenda for the 21st Century.
A French Jew (he recently told the European Jewish Congress the world's Jewish population needs to rise to 200 million), Attali is a high-level technocrat working to fulfill the New World Order.
Jacques Attali has a varied CV. For ten years he worked as an adviser to former French President Francois Mitterrand. In 1980, he started the European program Eurêka (a major European program on new technologies that invented, among other things, the MP3)....
1. Super-empire = an era of privatization where corporations rule the day. He writes, "money will finally rid itself of everything that threatens it- including nation states, which it will progressively dismantle." The market will become the world's only recognized law. A system of power whose 'structures remain elusive but whose goal is global.'
2. Hyperconflict = super-empire will implode and there will be a period of worldwide chaos. Starting about 2030, Attali foresees 'devastating wars, pitting nations, religious groups, terrorist entities, and free-market pirates against one another'.
3. Hyperdemocracy (2060)= Exhausted by wars and social upheavals the world public will welcome with open arms 'the creation of a democratic world government.' It will be a collectivist system, with everyone working towards the 'common good.'I have selected a few themes to give you a flavor of the book.
In the future, people will no longer bond and create families. 'The couple will no longer be the principal base for life and sexuality. [People] will prefer to choose, in full transparency, polygamous or polyandrous loves.'
Attali paints a picture of a surveillance society that would make the Stasi wince.
Even our washing machines will be conspiring against us, while the 'packaging of food products, clothing vehicles, and household goods will become "communicative."'
We will live with untrustworthy robots.
'Domestic robots will become universal in daily life. They too will be constantly connected to high-output grids in nomadic ubiquity. They will function as domestic help, as aids for the handicapped or aged, as workers and as members of security forces. In particular they will become "Watchers."'All our data will be collected by public and private security firms. The main form of surveillance will be portable entertainment devices. The embryo of this today is the iPhone that sends data to the NSA.
Immigration flows will expand and submerge nation states. 'Great Britain will become a major host country, especially for citizens of Central European countries. The latter will in their turn welcome Ukrainian workers, themselves replaced by Russians, themselves replaced by vast Chinese populations.'Resistant countries will learn that a population inflow 'is the condition of their survival.' In a sinister passage, Attali speaks of third-world hordes engulfing the West.
'Ever more numerous masses will hurl themselves at the gates of the West. They already number hundreds of thousands every month; that figure will increase to millions, then tens of millions.'
Future Of The US
The dollar will remain dominant until at least 2025, when foreign backers will start abandoning it and 'the credit pyramid, based on the value of American housing, will collapse.'
The US will then start disintegrating, with violence and chaos ensuing. Attali states, 'it will not be tomorrow's Africa that will one day resemble today's West, but the whole West that could tomorrow evoke today's Africa.'
The US will then have to redesign its government to regain control.
Around 2030, Attali sees 'hyperconflict' starting, a period of tremendous violence and upheavals, out of which 'hyperdemocracy'; a one-world communitarian government, will emerge around 2060.
Hyperconflict will consist of 'devastating wars, pitting nations, religious groups, terrorist entities, and free-market pirates against one another'.
Future wars will be fought with 'chemical, biological, bacteriological, electronic, and nanotechnological' weapons.
Legalization of Drugs
Attali predicts a future world where the masses drown themselves with amusement to escape their insecure and meaningless lives.
We will claim (are claiming) the right to grow roots.
'They will miss the days when frontiers were closed and lifetime employment was guaranteed, objects were long-lasting, marriages were sealed and remained sealed, the laws unbreakable.'
Feminism Necessary for Socialism
Jacques Attali is a pioneer of microfinance, founding PlaNet Finance, the third biggest organization of its kind. Microfinance consists of giving loans to poor people and community groups worldwide to start businesses.
When asked in an interview with Charlie Rose why 80% of microloans are given to women, Attali describes the phenomenon as a 'strange thing' but in the book he gives the real reason.
Women will defer to state collectivism.
Future man will walk the streets terrified of his own thoughts. He will be implanted with a brainchip.
'Bionic prostheses directly connected to the brain will help us build bridges between spheres of knowledge, produce mental images, travel, learn, fantasize, and communicate with other minds.'
End Goal Of NWO
Near the end of the book Attali tells us the ultimate goal of the NWO: to destroy humanity.
Attali says hyperdemocracy will be a One World Government run by the UN that will force obligations on each citizen towards the environment and other people.
Hyperdemocracy will develop a common good defined by a collective intelligence, which 'is an intelligence peculiar to itself, which thinks differently from each member of the group,' in the same way, 'a computer thinks differently from each processor.'
We will then progressively erase ourselves with technological advancement.
'Finally , at the ultimate stage of evolution, we might witness (we may already be witnessing) a hyperintelligence of the living, of which humanity will be but an infinitesimal component.'
Humanity will then die.
'The singular history of Homo sapiens sapiens would achieve consummation.'
'Most of these new contestants will propose no system of substitution... Expect for a handful who will propose a return to theocracy.'

Fairly arrogant group to think that the 95% of the worlds poorest people,
thrown into a chaotic and unwanted global conflict, running rampant,
are going to just bypass their mansions and gated communties?
