Gerald Celente - Economy Ticking Up, Chorus to Bring Down Trump Grows Louder









We are moving into a technocracy. "There is no more need for elevator operators and there will shortly be no need for taxi drivers or automobile assemblers. All of today’s “jobs” will eventually disappear and only those who perceive that change and fashion their lives to accommodate it will “have a job.” The “law of the jungle” will never change, any more than the rule that “capital follows cheap labor” will change. Perhaps the today’s auto assemblers will be robot assemblers of the future. If no one needs oil any longer, perhaps we can find a new use for Mideast sand. After all, most U.S. glass makers have disappeared, because plastic is cheaper."


Why do our leaders hate us so much and care so little about our well-being?

"Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely." Lord Acton

I read this really interesting piece of psychological research on the causes of corruption called "the metamorphic effect of power". Not only does power corrupt, be even worse, having power changes the powerholder to have "contempt" for those they have power over. Once the powerholder has this contempt, the powerholder no longer see subordinates as people deserving human respect. Instead, the powerholder sees subordinates as worthless ants that can step on without any moral consequence. This idea of having power over others will change your psyche is very important. It's only by having awareness of it that its negative affects be avoided.

Here's a really good analysis on the idea:
-------------------------------------------------

"Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely." So said Lord Acton, and most anarchists would agree. Any hierarchical system provides positions of power which are sought by the worst sort of people, namely the ambitious, unscrupulous and ruthless. Furthermore, even if by some chance sensitive and honest individuals obtain positions of power, they can quickly become corrupted. This is the experience with governments, corporations, churches, political parties and other institutions.

But why does power corrupt? For the answer, it is worth consulting the excellent work by David Kipnis, a professor of psychology at Temple University. He has carried out numerous experiments showing just how power corrupts.

For a person to be autonomous is widely considered to be a good thing. It is a feature of being fully human. When a person exercises power over others, the powerholder gains the impression that the others do not control their own behaviour or, in other words, they are not autonomous. Hence, they are seen as less worthy. In short, a person who successfully exercises power over others is more likely to believe that they are less deserving of respect. They thus become good prospects to be exploited.

For example, Kipnis organised experiments in which a "boss" oversees the work of "subordinates" in a simulated situation. The experiment is contrived so that all subordinates do the same work. But the subordinate who is thought to be self-motivated is rated much more highly -- for exactly the same work -- than the subordinate who is thought to have done the work only under instruction. As well as laboratory studies, Kipnis examines the effects of power on the powerholder through studies of couples, managers and protagonists in Shakespeare's dramas. The results are always the same.

Kipnis follows through the implications of such evidence in a number of areas involving technology, including medical technology, workplace technology and the technology of repression. For example, technologies for surveillance or torture serve to control others: that is the obvious effect. But in addition, the psychology of the powerholder is changed when the technology promotes the reality or impression that others lack autonomy. Those
subject to the technology are treated as less worthy, and any prospects for equality are ruled out.

Kipnis rightly points out that few studies have looked at the effects of power on the powerholder. He has done an admirable job of redressing this imbalance.

As a result of his investigations, Kipnis is quite pessimistic about solving the problems of power and the technology that reinforces it, precisely because the usual prescriptions ignore the effects of power on the powerholder. It seems, though, that Kipnis is unaware of anarchism and the longstanding anarchist critique of all forms of hierarchy.

However, this gap need not detract from the value of Kipnis's studies for anarchists. Besides the points mentioned above, he deals with tactics of influence, use of rewards, inhibition of the exercise of power, motivations for power and other corruptions of power. This work bears close study by all who want to understand better the psychological dynamics of power."

  1. The apocalypse is the advice of Nigel Farage: join American banks, wall street, enforce the Economical Nato against Europe; get toilet paper currency which is the us dollar and enslave British citizens, and demoralize them with and internal civil war: He does not even understand what BREXIT means, surprisingly he believed is all real, is not. Nigel don’t forget the one that controls the past controls the future and is not Murdoch that has that power, neither TRUMP. Unfortunately, America is the problem not Europe, your problem is that you now exist on an upside-down realm, and your perception is totally off, yes European banks are gone so are British banks and American banks, the industrial revolution the 1913 system is over. That is the reality that you do not perceive. Now there is a new system put in place, which you do not recognize on your upside-down world neither TRUMP. When a new system is put in place is not advertised on the front pages of a newspaper it just happens.

“The modern banking system manufactures money out of nothing. The process is, perhaps, the most astounding piece of sleight of hand that was ever invented. Banks can in fact inflate, mint and un-mint the modern ledger-entry currency.” Major L L B Angus

The few who understand the system will either be so interested in its profits or so dependent on its favours that there will be no opposition from that class, while on the other hand, the great body of the people mentally incapable of comprehending the tremendous advantage that capital derives from the system will bear its burdens without complaint and perhaps without even suspecting that the system is inimical to their interests.

"Debts must be collected, bonds and mortgages must be foreclosed as rapidly as possible. When, through a process of law, the common people lose their homes they will become more docile and more easily governed through the influence of the strong arm of government, applied by a central power of wealth under control of leading financiers.

This truth is well known among our principal men now engaged in forming an imperialism of Capital to govern the world.

By dividing the voters through the political party system, we can get them to expend their energies in fighting over questions of no importance. Thus by discreet action we can secure for ourselves what has been so well planned and so successfully accomplished."
