Give People A Universal Income To Keep Them Quiet While Global Government Grows

Globalization and its New Discontents … Fifteen years ago, I wrote a little book, entitled Globalization and its Discontents, describing growing opposition in the developing world to globalizing reforms. It seemed a mystery: people in developing countries had been told that globalization would increase overall wellbeing. So why had so many people become so hostile to it? – Project Syndicate, Joseph Stiglitz

Joseph Stiglitz is concerned about why people are hostile to the idea of gigantic, impersonal and rapacious governments stealing from them while telling them what to do.

Governments don’t work on any level. But global government is worst of all. It will deliver ruin, mass incarceration and ultimately genocide.

Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

But Stiglitz is a world famous economist, so he has better ideas.

More:

Now, globalization’s opponents in the emerging markets and developing countries have been joined by tens of millions in the advanced countries.

… Can the open global economy be saved from populist challengers – and from itself? … How can something that our political leaders – and many an economist – said would make everyone better off be so reviled?

Maybe because people don’t trust politicians and economists and increasingly see ways they cloak their own venal malevolence in the rhetoric of “universal good.”

The world is in a quasi-depression. The gradual diminishment of the global economy is only livened here and there by the West’s endless, serial wars now playing out mostly in the Middle East, but no doubt to be expanded over time.

For Stiglitz, the solution is not to decrease technocratic control so much has to increase the benefits associated with it.

The idea is that people see substantial benefits from technocratic authoritarianism, they will be more likely to accept it, or at least tolerate it.

And that apparently would make Stiglitz happy.

He mentions a book on this subject called Global Inequality: A New Approach for the Age of Globalization, by Branko Milanovic

[It] provides some vital insights, looking at the big winners and losers in terms of income over the two decades from 1988 to 2008. Among the big winners were the global 1%, the world’s plutocrats …

… The failure of globalization to deliver on the promises of mainstream politicians has surely undermined trust and confidence in the “establishment.”

He then mentions his own book, in which he conveniently advances a solution to the disparity he’s analyzed.

Now, as I point out in my recent book Rewriting the Rules of the American Economy, the rules of the game need to be changed again – and this must include measures to tame globalization.

The main message of Globalization and its Discontents was that the problem was not globalization, but how the process was being managed.

What’s the practical application of this? We can probably find it in a just-published UK Independent article, HERE:

Universal Basic Income: Labor leader Jeremy Corbyn considering backing radical reforms … “We have to think radically about how we bring about a more just and more equal society in Britain, how we develop policies that achieve that.”

You see? What could diminish antipathy and dissolve resistance more quickly than handing out a lot of money?

The Labor leader has spoken of his support for the measure, which would see every person in the UK given a minimum monthly financial sum.

The sum would be designed to give everyone a basic minimum standard of living including those who are out of work, with people who are working earning their salary in addition to the sum.

While once seen as a radical reform, the idea is gaining traction internationally and Norway and Ontario in Canada are to pilot schemes to test it.

We’ve spoken out against a universal basic income on numerous occasions, calling it immoral HERE and HERE in a profound way. It’s basically a bribe to ensure people won’t complain while those at the top continue to build their world empire.

Once such a corporatist, global environment is firmly in place with all the attendant authoritarian elements – a global central bank, a global judicial system, a global army and international policing – the mopping up can begin in earnest.

After all, as the Georgia Guidestones point out HERE, the carrying capacity for the earth is around 500 million.

The trick is to get from here to there. To make sure people are pacified while the foundation for the disasters-to-come are built securely around them.

Obviously, the globalists are aware of the push-back occurring, in large part because of what we have called the Internet Reformation.

More and more people are aware of what’s going on and that the worst trends of modernity are being extended internationally at a rapid clip.

Conclusion: But the internationalists have a solution for that. Give everybody money. Print it and hand it out. That will keep people quiet for as long as necessary.

The Great Divide: the Death of the Middle Class – Jeff Nielson

March 30, 2016

The focal point of the aforementioned article was that when it came to “the world’s poorest people,” the Corrupt West has now produced a greater percentage of severe poverty in its own populations than in India, and an equal percentage of such poverty as exists in Africa.

Stacked beside this, we see that when it comes to the richest-of-the-rich, the Corrupt West remains in a league of its own. Supposedly, we are living in “the New Normal,” where life is supposed to get increasingly harder and harder. So why does the New Normal never affect those on top?

Of course all of these extremely poor people being manufactured by our governments (as these regimes give away our jobs, destroy wages, and eviscerate our social programs) have to come from somewhere. Certainly they don’t come from the Wealthy Class.

Indeed, the chart above provides us with a crystal-clear view of where all these poor and very-poor people are coming from: the near-extinct Middle Class. In order to manufacture hundreds of millions of impoverished citizens in our nations, the Old World Order has had to engage in a campaign to end the Middle Class.

We are conditioned to consider economic “classes” within our own societies, but with the chart above, we’re given a global perspective. Where does the Middle Class exist today, globally? At the upper end, it exists in China, and to a lesser extent, in Latin America and other Asian nations. At the lower end of the Middle Class, we see such populations growing in India and even Africa.

Only in the West, and especially North America, is the Middle Class clearly an endangered species. Two incredibly important aspects of this subject are necessary to cover:

1) How and why has the One Bank chosen to perpetrate Middle Class genocide?

2) What are the consequences of the Death of the Middle Class?

Attempting to catalogue the nearly infinite number of ways in which the oligarchs of the One Bank have perpetrated their Middle Class genocide is impractical. Instead, discussion will be limited to the five most important programs responsible for the Death of the Middle Class: three of them relatively new, and two of them old.

  1. a) Globalization
  2. b) Union decimation/wage destruction
  3. c) Small business decimation
  4. d) Money-printing/inflation
  5. e) Income taxation

Globalization was rammed down our throats in the name of “free trade,” the Holy Grail of charlatan economists . But, as previously explained, real free trade is a world of “comparative advantage” where all nations play by a fair-and-equal set of rules. Without those conditions, “free trade” can never exist.

The globalization that has been imposed upon us is, instead, a world of “competitive devaluation,” a corrupt, perpetual, suicidal race to the bottom. The oligarchs understood this, given that they are the perpetrators. The charlatan economists were too blinded by their own dogma to understand this. And, as always, the puppet politicians simply do what they are told.
