imperial history 3 of 3


IMPERIAL HISTORY 3
*
J.H.- I got your wonderful box of books.  Thanks!  You should have gotten an e-mail expounding on your truly fabulous qualities.
*
While it is true that the US started the Cold War after the Second World War for the express purpose of continuing the military stimulus of the economy to avoid dropping back into a Depression ( Russia is as aggressive as any other country but they are predominantly defensive by nature and if left alone would have been quite happy building a wall of satellite countries around them-for the most part.  Just look at the Middle East, which they were mostly leaving to our control.  They had enough Muslim crap pot stirrers of their own to deal with in the ’Stans, and enough of their own oil because they needed energy for defense, not world wide economic domination like we did.  I’d put the US in the aggressor role for the Cold War ), that wasn’t a new or unique experience.  Industry has always used government military spending to their benefit-they just couldn’t do so to the extent they would have liked until after they got a central bank established  to finance it with free money.  You’ll notice we lost no time manipulating our way into the first World War, to the great profit of the bankers and the factory owners ( and look how pricks like Rockefeller and the DuPont boys took wartime profits and tried to change politics to further their fortunes-prohibiting alcohol to encourage gasoline only cars, and prohibiting hemp to sell synthetic fibers, respectively ).

*

The US picked on the weakest empire with the most tenacious grip on its colonies ( false flag attack on Cuba, anyone? ) to start out in the empire business itself, beyond the continental boundaries ( it was a de facto empire since France won us the war of independence, but had to wait for a war with Spain to compete with the big boys in exploiting those overseas ).  It couldn’t have done anything else, without the central bank and fiat money.  Every single swinging cheese dingus amongst us despises and rues the day the Federal Reserve was forced onto us, but the simple fact of the matter is that without it we never would have gone on to rule the world.  Military expansion takes lots of money, and as has been demonstrated time and again, a lot of that money HAS to be debt, not gold.  Forget becoming an empire, mere survival as a political entity requires expanding both industry and the industrialized military.  But if you are expanding, it is almost required that you go ahead and expand at the expense of other countries, else how do you pay for that debt the military needs?  It is almost beyond the decision of a government.  Expand, or die.

Assuming that the South broke off from the Union, either militarily or by political process, what would a likely outcome have been?  Economic stagnation for both countries.  The South would have most likely stayed agriculture, both out of necessity due to its pre-established infrastructure and by preference as its ruling elite made their money that way.  Yet their westward expansion was very problematic in that the land was becoming irrigation dependent rather than rain fed.  Could they have “bootstrapped” themselves up?  Or slowly declined until conquered by European empires?  The North could have continued to industrialize, but would it have had the financing to defend itself?  Would European powers seen fit to strangle her economically?  How much of the exploitation of the South was responsible for the continued growth of the North?  More than likely, it would have taken an actual war to separate the two, the North having far too much to lose, and other empires would have benefited from the weakening.  Britain wanted to expand south into the Oregon territory, at the very least.  Russia could easily have coveted the Pacific coast if not inland. 

*

And what about Germany, if nobody else?  Tropical Africa couldn’t have been much of a consolation prize in the Colonizing Game.  What kind of prize would one of our countries have been?  It has pretty much been established that without the entry of the US into WWI, the Germans could have successfully sued for peace or even perhaps won.  But would there even have been a world war if Germany had colonized the northern American colonies first?  With its ore supplies and its coal and its petroleum and food surplus?  You may disagree with all of my pontification and projection, never believing that our great country could be defeated.  But ask yourself this.  Without our nuclear umbrella,  or the pricing of oil in dollars, and as broke as we are, isn’t it possibly we could be defeated right now, at the end of our world empire?  How hard would it have been prior to that empire, if we had been divided?

*

Again, not an excuse for those legions who have wiped their ass with the Constitution and the Bill Of Rights ( starting with Washington ), but an exercise in thinking in realpolitik.

  1. All empire's end in war even if they win. look at Britain ,France they won but the cost was the end of empire. The U.S. may be in its end war now. Our end will be when a better place to park money is available to the banksters.

    1. Hell, France lost its colonies and didn't even fight WWII. The first war, then the Maginot Line bankrupted them. And I'd say we are more broke than Britain in 1913-our last war could have been Afghanistan. They won't admit it was Syria, since we lost that bitch worse than 'Nam. Your last sentence brings up an interesting point. If the entire West is being asset stripped and bankrupted, where can the elites go to? Not Russia/China or allies. Here's hoping we take the humpers down with us.

    2. Personal opinion is when they are done striping it will be a "war". They will hide in bunkers this time because no one wins but them .

    3. I wonder how many of the elite truly fear bankrupting the system and need a bolt hole while on business here, and how much is just spending on peacock feather status symbols.

  2. I look at our statues and currency, and see how dignified those dead politicians look, and i think to myself "Wow! Look how dignified they are! All politician should be dead!"

I must moderate-trust me. You don't want to see what happens otherwise. Sometimes it takes awhile to respond as I only check two or three times a day. No N-Bombs, nothing to get me libeled. Otherwise, have at it. If you criticize me, make sure to praise my hair first.
