Look at how the World is today. Our politicians tell us we have a clear threat to our way of life in the shape of Al-Qaeda. They are formulating laws
as we speak that they say are designed to protect us from this threat. Well, thats one way of looking at it, but try looking at it this way
Our politicians are telling the truth when they say there is a clear threat to our way of life. This threat is not Al-Qaeda, or terrorists, its our
dependance on oil. When the price of oil becomes too great our way of life literally falls apart. Example, the price of a two litre bottle of milk in
Australia will rise 8% (38c) due to the recent events of Katrina and its effects on World oil supplies.
Oil and its price is inextricably linked to our food supply and its price. Food prices and a population's access to it is THE PARAMOUNT cause of
revolution in the last 300 years. Both the Russian and French revolutions arose because the people were starving and only the rich ruling elite could
So what happens if our governments find themselves in a position where we are all starving because oil is too expensive? History clearly shows
there would be a revolution.
What does this have to with today? Its simple really, our governments have long recognized the threat posed by our dependance on oil. The American
invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq were based on American access to oil.
International terrorism has been manipulated or completely designed by our governments with oil and the threat of revolution solely in mind.
With a Western dominance on the World's oil supply our governments will delay the onset of revolution at home. The same terrorism used to justify the
Western domination of "terrorist supporting nations" which coincidently gets us complete access to their oil supply, has spawned Patriot Acts and
Control Orders across the Western World. They are ostensibly designed to prevent terrorist attacks occuring within our borders.
But, like the clear threat to our way of life, our politicians are telling us half truths. These laws are solely designed to prevent revolution when
we inevitably start starving due to high fuel costs. They will be able to legally stymie acts of revolution BEFORE THEY OCCUR as there is no
difference between the legal definition of terrorism and an act of revolt. They both involve acting against the state.
There must be a race on behind the scenes in the West now to come up with an oil alternative. Our governments have bought our scientists a few decades
more time with their invasions and they've secured their own asses from sporadic acts of revolt that would precede a full blown revolution.
They are buying time before the eventual crush. They too read the history books and know full well how things will pan out. They need to lie to us to
save their skins and their wallets. There is no such threat of international terrorism outside what Western governments are doing to their own
Wake up and take note of history!
p.s. If some people bother to read this far, realise this is an Opinion/Editorial. This is my opinion, it doesnt have to be related to a current news
item and it damn well is allowed to be biased. No wonder the general population can be walked on so easily
