The enemy within our gates.

The enemy within our gates.


As far back as the first century B.C. the Roman philosopher Marcus Tullius Cicero wrote:

"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. And enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear."

-Marcus Tullius Cicero (106-43 B.C.)

Those who forget history are doomed to repeat it. As valuable as this historic wisdom is, it is often ignored by the masses when analyzing global status-quo. The Western world today is almost certainly an unprecedented powerful bloc, no empire, kingdom or loosely connected bloc of nations has ever been as powerful as the West and in particular the US is at present, Western economies are a huge success, Western culture is imitated on a massive scale, the western value system is being implemented in an increasing number of nations, sporadically by force as in the case of Iraq, but most often by consent. On top of that, all the world’s armies combined are powerless against the seemingly almighty US army.

Seemingly, our position is one of great political and economical power and no worldly power except the almighty himself can undermine our privileged positions as the wealthiest, most powerful bloc in human history, most of us assume that our position will remain stable or even improve over time, little do they know that the enemy within the gates will deal a devastating blow to us, unprecedented in human history.

By this time most of you almost certainly assume that I’m referring to "terrorists" when speaking of "the enemy within our gates." Not so. The enemy I'm referring to now is not foreign, he does not speak in a foreign tongue, he wears no turban, for he is in fact our own globalist capitalistic elite. And the devastating blow will not come in the form of a mushroom cloud, radiation fallout, bombs or toxic chemicals as FOX News and the likes like to suggest. No, this enemy has other tactics and its blow is a far more strategic, long-term and stealth one, it’s engineered in such a devious way that the victims will be the ones cheering as they are being dealt this huge blow, for they assume that the enemy within the gates is one of their own and has their interests in mind. So if this enemy does not use bombs, bullets or chemical weapons against us, then what does it use? The short answer is "globalism."

The story begins in the late 1980’s, when the Soviet Union began to crumble. Simultaneously with the Soviet Union's downfall, the communist ideology and the threat of the "Proletarian Revolt" starts to fade away. No longer fearing a worldwide proletarian movement, the capitalistic elite started to reverse some of the concessions they made to the people of the West and sneaked this process called “globalism" on the global stage. With previously closed markets opening up, the spread of "know how" and fearing no Marxist movement, suddenly it made no sense to improve the conditions of workers in the West. The capitalistic elite now even had the opportunity to blackmail the masses with massive layoffs if they demanded too much, the globalists would just move the plant over to China, Indonesia, Vietnam or wherever where the workers would be more desperate and acceptant of their unreasonable terms, something which was impossible in the days of the Soviet Union. This is globalism in its purest form: the continuous movement of production assets to places where the price/quality ratio makes most sense business-wise, leaving behind impoverished and disillusioned societies as it moves on to the next "promised land."

Globalism is often portrayed by the corporate media as a blessing for the Western world, globalism would mean the export of Western values and most important of all, it would mean a win-win situation for all of us economical-wise, of course the latter is a farce, since it is empirically obvious that globalism causes plants to shut down, constantly searching the globe for the cheapest labor force, a continuous process. The irony in all this is the fact that so indoctrinated have the Western workers become that they see it as a historic mission to help co-promote globalism. Therein lies the huge power of the corporate media.

This new formal enemy (terrorism) which was summoned on stage exactly at the same time when the Soviet Union fell, is no coincidence, for they are actually a homebredd globalist asset, functioning as lightning conductors, to be called upon to perform an unholy task, namely distracting the masses as the capitalistic elite would move the economical assets for which generations have worked, to new locations all over the globe without encountering huge opposition. The masses, far too busy fearing Al Qaida, would have little interest in minor details like the vaporization of their savings, plants shutting down and one town after another becoming unemployed, for they would be much too busy fearing all kinds of wild terrorist attacks, a fear which is bred by the same corporate globalist elite by the way, for instance Rupert Mordoch's Fox news Network, shamelessly disguising their propaganda activities as “fair and balanced news."

It's plausible that within two decades the once prosperous West (and especially the US) will resemble Albania or Romania. That's the optimistic view, the more pessimistic (but nonetheless realistic) view is that the American situation will be worse, since the two nations mentioned above are most certainly not rich, they are however not so heavily in debt as the US will be in a decade or two from now. As I’m typing this, the US federal government has a debt which is getting close to 10.000 billion of dollars, an unprecedented national debt. A recent study by a Noble-Prize winning economist pointed out that the direct and indirect cost of the Iraq war would most likely be somewhere in the area of 2.500 billion dollars and this is based on the fact that Iraq’s situation will not deteriorate over time, which is nonetheless likely. Most likely a war with Iran and/or Syria still lies ahead, so add a few hundred billions to the already astronomical debt. Add to this explosive mix the fact that eventually most factory jobs will disappear, eliminating the middle-class, let’s take into account that a large and stable middle-class is one of the pillars for a stable and prosperous society, destroy the pillar and the consequences will be swift and disastrous: tensions within society will increase possibly leading to (racial/class) violence, at the same time poverty will increase, by that time there won't be much money left for the army, making the nation vulnerable to outside threats. There's one glimpse of hope though, because the US will be so impoverished by then that an attack is pretty unlikely, simply because the loot would not be tempting enough for potential invaders.

And this is why this gradual and stealth process called globalism, which is embraced by the ignorant masses, will be their own downfall.

Comment To Captain N I don't agree, capitalism in many ways is a silent killer, it cannot exist without suffering, since sufferig=desperate people=willingness to work for crappy wages=major profits=capitalism.

Comment when you say it like that it makes a lot of sense

Wed Apr 5, 2006 2:18 pm MST by bob stevens

Comment Pretty good. You overlooked a few important aspects though, first of all, as so-called emerging giants like India and China develop stronger economies, their people will become more demanding, higher wages become unavoidable, which will create a new euilibrium. It's not like the Chinese are going to keep working for a buck and a half forever, a day will come when they too start demanding higher wages. But all in all, pretty good article, I agree with most of it, except the "terrorism was summoned on stage" part. I'm not buying that.

Comment Bart, I don't have the statistics at hand, but there are many major plants doing very very well. I just don't have the time to go into details, I'll get back to it though. Kisses, Jenna.

Sun Mar 19, 2006 5:53 pm MST by Bart

Comment Jenna, Call me pessimistic, but you name me a dozen major production plants in theUS that are g very well at the moment, for I can't think of a dozen. Are you aware of the fact that at this very moment 40 million Americans cannot afford something as basic as health insurance? There's more going on than just a temporarely recession.

Sat Mar 18, 2006 5:02 pm MST by Bart

Comment You're waaaaaaaaay to pessimistic. So far, so good, that's the way I see it, none of your kinda people's predictions have come true.

Thu Mar 16, 2006 5:16 pm MST by Jenna Sachs

Comment Hans, Well....I HAVE read Friedman's book and he's right on a vareity of issues, what he fails to adress however is the fact that it's true that a whole lotta nations currently ranked as third world nations will benefit from globalism, however he did NOT mention the fact that the US will NOT benefit from it, sure major companies will see their assets increase, but the population won't benefit form globalism, all they'll get is a decrease in wages or worse yet, namely the disappearing of jobs.

Sun Mar 12, 2006 12:23 pm MST by San Lie

Comment Read Thomas Friedman's "The world is flat", you'll understand why globalism is the greatest thing hat has happened to the west in a long time.

Sun Mar 12, 2006 7:14 am MST by Hans

Comment Perhaps Hans would like to explain how exactly globalism is supposed to benefit us? Like the author, all I see are negative effects.

Sat Mar 11, 2006 2:13 pm MST by John

Comment I do not agree, you're just being too pessimistic, give it time and globalism WILL be a win-win situation.

Mon Mar 6, 2006 4:32 pm MST by Hans

Comment Excellent article, also my compliments for expanding your views a little bit instead of focussing on Zionists all the time. Keep 'm coming.

Comment @ L@ila: You winder, I wonder, we all wonder. This administration (all of them actually) care about one thing and one thing above all, that one thing being: short term profit. What happens on the long term or to the majority of the people (the "have nots") is unimportant in their view.

Sun Mar 5, 2006 3:04 pm MST by Bart

Comment Well, I'm an Arab and for long I have indeed wondered why in god's name Americans sit idle as their government spends itself to death... killing my people. I mean, it's a lose-lose situation but the Americans are apparently not capable of seeing that.
