If you think the current immigration and border security problem is an accident, consider the fact that at one point Bush was ready to grant blanket
legal immunity and naturalization to almost 8 million illegals.
Our internal economy is now largely based on the service industry. Fast food, superstores, and other extremely low wage paying positions. Americans
are not willing to work for these low wages, but to illegals, $6.50 an hour is real wealth, relatively. In addition to our trade deficit, and our
overseas labor deficit, we also have an internal labor deficit as a result of the abundance of low paying jobs.
If our service industry were to suffer due to lack of people willing to work for such low earnings, the banking (credit) industry would suffer
likewise. So long as these low paying positions are filled, by non-english speakers or otherwise, the credit cards will continue to be used. And
Americans are not afraid to use their credit. In fact, we use credit largely without regard to fiscal responsiblity.
This fact underpins the reality that our monetary system is a part of the system of illusion which we continue to embrace and propogate. Nixon removed
us from the gold standard, and since, money has been backed by nothing other than our faith, and the world's faith, in our money.
This is a dangerous situation, but I believe that the situation does not seem as dire to TC, CFR, and/or PNAC. In fact, I believe they are simply
propping up the current global economy for as long as it takes to set the pieces on the board for checkmate of the current paradigm.
The global economy is on its last legs, and it makes sense. Capitalism can only survive if growth persists. Corporate bureaucratic entities exist
soley to justify their own existence. In order to survive, they must grow, and in order to grow, they must feed. Feeding is exploitation of resources,
human and materiel.
The exploitation of a new American workforce, who accept low wages that are vastly greater than they expect otherwise, is simply a stalling tactic. It
is a sign that the economy as a whole is failing. What will happen when the next generation of Americans born to illegals find themselves wanting and
coveting at the same level as people do today? They will clamor for higher wages, but alas, there will be no higher wages to earn.
Some say the answer is education. Well, with education costs increasing at the rate they are, soon education will be reserved only for those with
initial wealth. Soon, even the educated in this country will be relegated to lower and lower wage earnings, regardless of skill.
