allowing the collapse 2 of 2


THE INEVITABILITY OF ALLOWING THE COLLAPSE TO PRECEDE 2

Greed certainly plays a part in our infrastructure collapse.  When CEO’s get $300 million a year and workers are undocumented getting a fifty cent raise from minimum if they work twice as hard, whose supervisor is getting half the pay that a starting Union grunt worker once did,  and that is after thirty percent of the total workforce has already been laid off, you can’t exactly sell the BS that the free market determines fair and just wages nor can you claim that management aren’t a bunch of greedy whores.  Neither is government intervention, oversight or regulation always the answer. It can be, except that in practice in our system the corporations hijack those safeguards for their own end.  But greed and government incompetence are Sideshow Bob ( Simpson’s reference ) distractions that merely cloud the issue.  If everyone needs infrastructure, from cubical drones shuffling paperwork to government bureaucrats collecting taxes for their use which pays his salary, to corporations getting a free ride on protection and taxes, than how does it benefit any of them from allowing its demise?

And if it can’t benefit anyone except a few instances of Mafia owned sub-par material user companies throwing up a patch or replacement that won’t last long at all, why is it happening?  If you believe “official” studies, upgrading our entire countries infrastructure could have been done with little more than what the two sandbox wars just cost us.  War is a one off profit center and only benefit’s a small segment of our rulers.  So what is stopping us?  Falling bridges, a shrinking navy that can’t even protect us against Somalia pirates, a power grid that is practically wide open to hack attack, a shrinking nuclear deterrence, leaking water mains that create sinkholes that collapse roads.  Who wants that?  Nobody.  And don’t you dare say “One World Government wants to impoverish us to defeat us and….blah, blah”.  More misdirection and wishful thinking.  If it was an evil banker cabal we could educate and eradicate.  But it is a force far more evil, our oft repeated predicament of falling energy supply.  Not just in unavailability of iron ore, cement and other actual materials, but also the financial means.

You might not have noticed, but Japan underwent a massive cementing over of most of their countryside in a make work effort to reinvigorate their economy.  We did the same overbuilding McMansion suburbs fro 2000-2007.  China has, literally, built an entire continent full of new cities in their frenzied effort at doing whatever it is inscrutable ChiComs do to take over the world ( their efforts will meet with the same success as Japan’s in the 1980’s, but in the meantime their antics make good kabuki theatre, part of our distracting bread and circuses ).  There are still materials out there despite most commodities having already peaked globally ( of course, one might make the case that it is probably lesser quality than previously-such as Chinese skyscrapers made from girders that used to be auto bodies from US wrecking yards ).  I would argue that the primary reason our infrastructure is being allowed to collapse is finances.  Not political will or material availability.  Simply, all those Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy reports  that all the media and government feed us is complete propaganda.  The proof is in the pudding.

*

If infrastructure is critical ( remember my telling you how bombed Nazi cities were rebuilt in wartime faster and better than New Orleans has been? ), and we are letting it collapse, we must be having no other choice.  It isn’t Peak Oil, as we are still in control of 25% of global production which we pay for in large part through printing debt.  It isn’t even really EROI vastly shrinking all REAL oil production down to near 1930 levels ( which is the date that the cynics call the start of the Oil Century, and as the title suggests 2030 is when oil production is close the level it started at signally an end to a viable source of energy ) although that certainly is a major factor.  If we had the economic means to outbid the materials from China we could have done so and redone an FDR style public works program to boost the economy past the housing crash.

*

If we had the economic means we could have done a Vietnam style mass invasion of the middle east.  If we had the economic means we could have done a real banker bailout ( rather than just allowing bookkeeping entries to be changed or ignored ).  If we had a strong economy we could have replaced the shuttle program with a real space program.  Our economy might look pretty and shiny but it is just a very thin layer of glittery sprinkles covering a rancid turd.  Note that I’m NOT saying our economy is going to crash any day know.  Yes, with the imminent derivatives implosion it most certainly will.  But my point is that our economy is much worse than any of us have been told or can figure out and has been for some time and it will take very little effort to tank that SOB.  A real economy doesn’t just permanently leave half a city in piles of rubble, even if it is a Black one.  A real economy isn’t outshone by the Nazi’s.  A real economy doesn’t leave tens of millions in a desert without water, abandoned to shrinking wells, unable to move for lack of jobs elsewhere.  We all know “This Suckers Going Down”, but you had better realize it isn’t contracting on your leisurely schedule ( as dictated by the Yuppie Scum Survivalist attitude of requiring decades of prepping to buy your hundreds of thousands of dollars of crap ).

  1. “such as Chinese skyscrapers made from girders that used to be auto bodies from US wrecking yards”


    Whatever they used, I hope it's a hell of a lot better quality than the shit that was used in the WTC, whose girders melted like butter the moment they were hit by flaming jet fuel, causing the buildings to implode at gravity free fall speed.

    1. I trust you are being sarcastic.

    2. Yeah, sarcasm James. Should of put a smiley as an indicator, but then some might have taken it as being disrespectful to the loss of innocents.

    3. Hmm. Yes, I see your point. I'm a callous cynical bastard and I still take the occasional moment to be less disrespectful.

    1. I think one of the reasons the prisons pay so little here is that the job is a stepping stone to being a LEO. They figure those that stay are losers and they are always attracting fresh blood so there is no need to bribe others into staying. I could have easily gotten in and at $25 an hour, plus the prisons at small boonie towns it would have been nice, but I'm way past the point of money being a good way to deal with stress.

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.
