We are having some high level discussions on the balance of power.
Its not any change since the last 20 years but since Kim Jong-il died, I think its just a formality for everyone (the secret government) to agree that
we should keep the same balance of power.
You know if America attacks Iran, then Russia, China, Korea, Pakistan, will protect them and same goes with any of the other countries in that group.
By standing together they form the balance of power against a superpower.
Living in the nuclear age means we need to have a balance of power.
And people might argue that this is not the best way to do that but thats the way we are doing it because we think thats the best way to do it to
safeguard the capitalist system which we all enjoy when we go shopping or order something on-line. We expect it to get delivered and voila! It
Its part of a larger planetary economic management program, that would take some time to explain in detail.
Like creating employment in China, so they can be self supporting, and not starving and in need of aid.(Like they used to be)
And for 1 full third of Americans to opt out of the labor force and play computer games which I am sure is harder than working in the steel mills
where they used to work and foundries and tanneries and you know.
Chicken in every pot. But you know its still not a fair system, because people just refuse to share with each other.
America as a nation, believes that its ok, for some people to have 60 billion dollars and some of its citizens to go hungry.
Well thats not global policy. Global policy is to encourage the redistribution of wealth, and we do that by creating employment in third world
countries and we accomplish that often by using the World Bank, and currency exchange etc.
You see if we don't help them in their own countries, we will be helping them as refugees in boats on our doorstep.
So Britain joking asked if they should join the other side. Its not as if we plan to ever actually fight it out.
Does their economic future look brighter than ours?
Not really, they are still playing catch up. They have a lot of catching up to do in social reforms and standard of living. Why America wants to
bother my pet project Iran is beyond me. I have no idea why. They are good stewards of the land, it looks like paradise, and they are happy to be
looking after themselves, they are somewhat democratic and they are doing ok financially.
They have no aspirations to go a conquering or anything like that. Their religious leaders look after the oil money, and everyone agrees in their
country they are the ones most trusted. Whats wrong with that?
Whats wrong with North Korea being independent? You know we have given them a lot of aid over the years.
They are doing better now.
China is doing well but needs to work on its pollution and environmental problems. It should be spending money on that.
American billionaires should be using that money to help people in America, not in Africa.
Africa needs to play catch up too. They need to develop their own ideas of capitalism and modern culture that suits their own nature as people.
We interfere too much in their lives as we steal their oil and diamonds.
What the heck is up with Chinese people with money not wanting to invest it back in their OWN country?
And what is up with the American billionaires not creating programs to benefit the lower classes?
Do you need to just tax them poor and redistribute the wealth by force of arms of or what?
Pass a no inheritance law and that will fix everything. All monies when you and your spouse die goes to the state. The state redistributes it.
