In an article entitled "Parallels Between Early 20th Century and Present Are Scary," we pointed out that history is indeed seemingly repeating itself. You can see the link here, and some previously created charts below.
We've pointed out these parallels in order to make the argument that much of what's going on now is intended to speed up the process of creating one-world government. We regularly try to explain that there is likely a power elite behind this state of affairs – a small group wielding enormous Money Power via its control of central banking.
It is this "cabal" that seeks formal world government and – then – control of it behind the scenes. In order to implement world government, this impossibly rich cabal or mafia uses dominant social themes (fear-based promotions) to frighten middles classes into giving up power and authority to specially prepared globalist institutions.
But it is not enough to use themes. These themes have to be reinforced by ACTIONS. That is, if one wants to scare people about, say, an oil crisis, one has to implement measures to raise prices by creating an oil shortage. This has been done (even in the recent past) by restricting oil exploration, creating wars in sensitive oil-producing areas, etc.
Here at DB we call the strategies of the power elite in aggregate "directed history" – the idea that the powers-that-be are orchestrating a maximum amount of CONTROLLABLE chaos. Once the chaos has been created, authoritarian solutions can be applied. These solutions are presented as dominant social themes.
The elites use dominant social themes that are not scarcity-based as well. A different kind of theme is one that leads to political unrest and authoritarian solutions that can then be used to advance either one-world government or wars.
Today, we have what is called a "sovereign debt crisis" wracking Europe. Many believe this crisis is merely a coincidental outgrowth of what came before, in the booming, early 2000s.
We've gone back and forth on this issue, but increasingly we come down on the side of directed history. Increasingly, we think the elites are planning and creating economic chaos in order to do what they've done before – implement authoritarian solutions as result. Out of chaos ... order.
