Paul Craig Roberts seems like a great dude that woke up later in life.
Yet the generational cycle is what prevents a large scale awakening.
Back when PCR was younger he believed in of the the traps of our society rep/dem, money, and likely "other" belief systems where he might have spent time in church or something,
...and then by the time he started to wake up, his time as vital to our society was passed...and so it goes...and so it goes....and so will you soon :thumbup: i suppose

I don't think the "generational cycle" is what prevents a large-scale awakening. I think it is more like achieving a trigger point. The trigger point is the ideological equivalent of "critical mass". When that tipping point is reached, a chain reaction can potentially occur and accelerate beyond the point of no return.

I already know of young people who are much more awake than PCR probably was at their age. There is a shift occurring as people "wise up" earlier in life, thanks to the efforts of more experienced people like PCR. My children are far ahead of where I was at their age, and I am partly responsible for that. It's a matter of teaching, of exposing the deception. People like PCR are critical to the process of exposing the deception.

Back when PCR was younger he believed in of the the traps of our society rep/dem, money, and likely "other" belief systems where he might have spent time in church or something...

This speaks to the magnitude and pervasiveness of the deception. When you are born into a deception that well implemented, the miracle is that anyone wakes up before death.

...and then by the time he started to wake up, his time as vital to our society was passed...and so it goes...and so it goes....and so will you soon :thumbup: i suppose

I am reminded here of the film "It's a Wonderful Life". The lesson there is that you cannot know the impact an individual can have on others. We all have our insignificance, and we all have our significance. I can't really tell you what yours is, just as you can't really tell me what mine is.

Americans need to understand that their government is not merely incompetent and immoral, but that it is evil. Washington hides behind moral language but is itself devoid of moral conscience. There is no evil of which Washington is incapable. Those who support Washington support evil. -- source

With those kinds of symptoms -- incompetent, immoral, hiding behind deception, devoid of moral conscience, capable of any evil -- you could almost diagnose the U.S. Government as a sociopath! In fact, the U.S. government consists of a large number of sociopaths whose interests converge in a common consensus of selfish reward and loyalty to their privileged "private club". Naturally, when you have a crowd of sociopaths, their defining characteristics will be reflected in their group initiatives. If the source of evil lies in the deviant behaviors of sociopaths, then a group of organized sociopaths in positions of great power and control will manifest great evil.

Quote:
‘Evil’ people are those who are unable to empathise with others. As a result, their own needs and desires are of paramount importance. They are selfish, self-absorbed and narcissistic. In fact, other people only have value for them to the extent that they can help them satisfy their own desires, or to which they can exploit them. -- source

Of course, the sociopaths will hide the evil they do as best they can to avoid being exposed as the true source of that evil. And that's pretty much what we've seen over the past 50 years from the U.S. government, and it is getting steadily worse.

As the US and EU are conducting economic warfare against Russia, Russia could claim that by wrecking the Russian economy the West has deprived Russia of the ability to repay loans to the European banks. If this does not bring down the thinly capitalized EU banks, Russia can announce that as NATO countries are now officially recognized by Russian war doctrine as an enemy of the Russian state, Russia can no longer support NATO’s aggression against Russia by selling natural gas to NATO members. If the shutdown of much of European industry, rapidly rising rates of unemployment, and bank failures do not result in the dissolution of NATO and thus the end of the threat, the Chinese can act.

The Chinese hold a very large amount of dollar-denominated financial assets. Just as the Federal Reserve’s agents, the bullion banks, dump massive shorts onto the bullion futures markets during periods of little activity in order to drive down the bullion price, China can dump the equivalent in US Treasuries of years of Quantitative Easing in a few minutes. If the Federal Reserve quickly creates dollars with which to purchase the enormous quantity of Treasuries so that the financial house of cards does not implode, the Chinese can then dump the dollars that they are paid for the bonds in the currency market. Whereas the Federal Reserve can print dollars with which to purchase the Treasuries, the Fed cannot print foreign currencies with which to buy the dollars.

The dollar would collapse, and with it the power of the Hegemon. The war would be over without a shot or missile fired. -- source

I sure hope Putin is paying attention to Mr. Roberts. The ruling sociopaths derive their power from fiat money creation that they control. They are going to collapse the current economic model anyway; it's just a matter of timing it to their advantage. I like the idea of Russia and/or China messing up their timetable. Gold and silver coin are the only reliable forms of money, but the ruling sociopaths want crypto-currencies for the next iteration of the money scam. Crypto-curriencies are not succeeding (they are a scam), so a collapse now could possibly push the world back to a gold standard, if the gold reserves of the planet could be confiscated from the criminal sociopaths who have spent the last 100 years stealing it all. When the global economy collapses, the ruling sociopaths will be at their weakest, and taking them out and repatriating all the looted gold they hold would be a real possibility.

The government brings false charges against you or they bring charges that are not illegal under law as understood. However, prosecutors invent new interpretations of laws and judges and juries accept legislation-by-prosecutor-to-fit-the-made-up-case. Almost never is a jury involved, not that jurors show any inclination to go against the government’s case. However, prosecutors only face that unlikely risk in 3 or 4 percent of the cases. All other cases are settled on the basis of self-incrimination. The prosecutor tells the defendant and his attorney, "you can admit to this and that and have a sentence of 5 or 10 years. Otherwise, we are indicting you with 105 offenses with imprisonment of at least one lifetime."

What Brown, Kelly, and Mahoney are in fact proving is that the US is lawless in the sense that law serves only the government and its agenda. In America law no longer has any other meaning. There is no rule of law. We are ruled by the government’s agenda. -- source

There is no justice in the Justice system. The USA is hardly better than any other tyrannical government the world has ever seen.

Neither do the Russians believe that the US is exceptional. Putin’s response to Obama’s claim of American superiority was: “God created us equal.” Putin added: “It is extremely dangerous to encourage people to see themselves as exceptional, whatever the motivation.”

Interesting how the roles have been reversed, with Russia saying the equivalent of "All men are created equal", and the United States claiming superiority due to its exceptionalism. What a hypocrite the United States government has become! But that is the nature of sociopaths, believing they are exceptional and superior to non-sociopaths. In the minds of sociopaths, all non-sociopaths are only worthy of serving (as slaves) the oh-so-exceptional sociopaths.

Of note also is Richard Sauder's criticism of Paul Craig Roberts' silence on the evil perpetrated under the Reagan administration, where Roberts served as Assistant Secretary of the Treasury. It's a valid criticism, but I point out that the psychopath George H. W. Bush was vice-president under Reagan and essentially ran the administration from the shadows. "Poppy" Bush has had many people murdered who risked exposing Bush's crimes, so Roberts' silence about that administration may be a matter of self-preservation. When you know the extent of Bush's evil, Robert's silence becomes quite understandable. Even Richard Sauder recognizes the extreme deviancy that is George Herbert Walker Bush:

Quote:
One alphabet soup operative who was on one of my graduate studies committees (the major USSA university faculties are loaded with agents and consultants of the CIA, Mossad, DIA, DOE, Dept. of State, NSA, AFOSI, etc.) described George H.W. Bush to me as a "skin walker," a hollow, soulless being devoid of conscience.

Yep, that is how psychopaths/sociopaths are often described by the people that know them well. The people that don't know them well, on the other hand, describe them as "charming" and "honorable".

Post Re: Paul Craig Roberts
Sanctions and other forms of American financial imperialism are causing countries, including very large ones, to leave the dollar payments system. As foreign trade is increasingly conducted without recourse to the US dollar, the demand for dollars drops, but the supply has been greatly expanded as a result of Quantitative Easing. Because of offshored production and US dependence on imports, a drop in the dollar’s exchange value would result in domestic inflation, further lowering US living standards and threatening the rigged, stock, bond, and precious metal markets.

So says former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury turned whistleblower Paul Craig Roberts in May 2015. This is a very misleading analysis, a clever mixture of truth and falsehoods, with a great deal of needed information missing. In other words, it is propaganda.

You can get a better idea of how it is propaganda from someone who was never a cooperating insider and has been an obscure whistleblower for a long time. His analysis was published in 2008, seven years before Roberts muddied the waters:

All those dollars sitting in foreign banks (over two thirds of all dollars ever created) would no longer be needed to buy oil, so they would come flooding back into the United States looking to buy something, ANYTHING, to give them some kind of value. Hyperinflation would explode, the dollar would collapse, and the average American would be broke. Printing more dollars, the government scam of choice for the last century, would no longer work. Dollars would be worthless paper, and pandemonium would reign.

The USA can no longer enforce its requirement that oil be purchased only with U.S. dollars. Russia, China, and Iran have already bypassed the U.S. dollar in their energy trade deals. Foreigners have already starting their shopping spree in the USA to get rid of their dollars. They will own all the major hard assets of America in the near future, and Americans will own worthless piles of U.S. dollars.

You see, it is not primarily "sanctions and other forms of American financial imperialism" that are causing other countries to leave the dollar payments system. It is not primarily foreign trade or the dollar's foreign exchange value that is creating domestic inflation. It is primarily the supply of dollars. Too many have been printed or digitally conjured out of thin air. This is a sure-fire way to devalue and destroy any fiat currency while allowing the money controllers to grow unbelievably rich and powerful. We've had domestic inflation for 100 years, due primarily to printing dollars. We've been brainwashed to believe "nominal" inflation is necessary for financial health. The goal of the Federal Reserve has always been a small yearly inflation rate. Printing excess money is the source of their power, thus the need for "nominal" inflation. That inflation has been exported to the entire world via the petrodollar scam, which is now ending. And all official measures of inflation have been "gamed" to hide the real inflation rate, which is much greater than "nominal". The Deal (the petrodollar scam) that has kept the dollar alive since the early 70s is collapsing, and the dollar's value is collapsing with it. To hide the dollar's accelerating collapse, the European Central Bank is printing a trillion Euros (or more) so that the Euro collapses nearly as fast. That way the exchange ratio between the two currencies remains roughly the same, and the public is less likely to notice what's really going on until the moment the bottom falls out with neck-snapping suddenness.

That's right, we're being hung.

PCR is taken to the woodshed again for using propaganda to justify his criticism of the criminal American government.

Quote:
But the error which is totally baseless, and cannot be allowed to stand, is this rubbish about "Deutschland uber alles" - (Germany above all things). First of all, the big bad "Nazis" never "proclaimed Deutschland uber alles". That well-recognized term - often mistranslated to "Germany above all others" and erroneously believed to be the title of the song in question - is actually only the opening line of the "Deutschlandlied" (Song of Germany). The song, which later became Germany's National Anthem, was penned in 1841 by August Heinrich Hoffmann - nearly a half-century before Hitler was even born, and three decades before the German state (Reich) was consolidated. Far from preaching "supremacy", the "Deutschlandlied" only represented the hopes for the eventual unification of the 30 or so German states, nothing more! -- source

Hey, it happens. PCR is one of the good guys, despite his mistake. We all make mistakes. It just goes to show that all of us have been brainwashed, and even if we know it, we still have deep-seated misconceptions that were implanted in our minds when we were young. Yes, the brainwashing starts at birth as parents hand down their brainwashing to their children, to be followed by teachers and then the mass media doing the same thing.

In his naive way, PCR is calling for removing sociopaths from positions of power and control.

Paul Craig Roberts wrote:
In order to restore peace, the neoconservatives must be removed from foreign policy positions in the government and media. This means that Victoria Nuland must be removed as Assistant Secretary of State, that Susan Rice must be removed as National Security Adviser, that Samantha Power must be removed as US UN ambassador.

The warmonger neoconservatives must be removed from Fox ‘News,’ CNN, the New York Times, Washington Post, and Wall Street Journal, and in their places independent voices must replace propagandists for war.

Clearly, none of this is going to happen, but it must if we are to escape armageddon. -- source

PCR is just scratching the surface, but he is right. However, removing sociopaths from foreign policy positions is futile as long as other sociopaths in government can simply install new cronies, which they will. But if we could identify all sociopaths and remove them from all positions of power and control, we would have the dawn of a new world the likes of which humanity has never seen. Clearly, none of this will happen until enough people understand the danger sociopaths present to humanity when we allow them to deceive and manipulate us unchecked.

Coincidence? Or the usual problem-reaction-solution?

And there's the kicker. Problem-reaction-solution it is.

Of course, ISIL is CIA/Mossad backed. When the Russians decided to target ISIL a few weeks ago, NATO and company was very embarrassed, because Russia really did target ISIL, something NATO just couldn't seem to manage! CIA and Mossad assets were actually being destroyed by Russian weapons! What a black eye for Washington. But now France is flying missions in Syria, claiming to target ISIL (wink, wink), but really attacking Assad assets, which is what Washington wants.

It's a sick, twisted game, and the public has been completely duped, as always. And that's the way the ruling sociopaths do things. There is no mistaking their psychological signature, when you know what to look for. Think Henry Kissinger, and you will understand what kind of monster orchestrates operations like the Paris attacks. Look for more senseless killings coming in the news. Shock and awe is their calling-card. Remember 9/11, where it wasn't just one hijacked plane, but four.
