The Last Waltz? The Coming End of the American Superpower [5/1/05]

The US economy is headed toward crisis, and the political leadership of the country--if it can be called leadership--is preoccupied with nonexistent weapons of mass destruction in the Middle East.

The US economy is failing. The afflictions are serious. They could be fatal even if diagnosed and treated. America is losing the purchasing power of its currency and its ability to create middle class jobs.
&sdot &sdot &sdot
A venal and self-important Washington establishment combined with a globalized corporate mentality have brought an end to America's rising living standards. America's days as a superpower are rapidly coming to an end. Isolated by the nationalistic unilateralism of the neoconservatives who control the Bush administration, the US can expect no sympathy or help from former allies and rising new powers.

NOTE: the author of the above article, Paul Craig Roberts, was the Assistant Secretary of the Treasury in the Reagan administration and an Associate Editor of the Wall Street Journal editorial page and Contributing Editor of the National Review. Hardly a raving, tinfoil-hat lefty — although, judging by Murka's political doppler shift to the far very far fascist right, he might as well be.

cf: from William Rivers Pitt on the The Project for the New American Century [from 2/25/03]

The American economy will be ravaged by the need for increased defense spending, and by the aforementioned "constabulary" duties in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere. Former allies will turn on us. Germany, France and the other nations resisting this Iraq war are fully aware of this game plan. They are not acting out of cowardice or because they love Saddam Hussein, but because they mean to resist this rising American empire, lest they face economic and military serfdom at the hands of George W. Bush. Richard Perle has already stated that France is no longer an American ally.

As the eagle spreads its wings, our rhetoric and their resistance will become more agitated and dangerous.

This is the price to be paid for empire, and the men of PNAC who now control the fate and future of America are more than willing to pay it. For them, the benefits far outweigh the liabilities.

cf: Wolfowitz [PNAC architect] on shortlist for World Bank top post [5/1/05]

Paul Wolfowitz, US deputy secretary of defence, has emerged as a leading candidate to replace James Wolfensohn as the president of the World Bank.
&sdot &sdot &sdot
The nomination of Mr Wolfowitz, one of the chief architects of the Iraq war and a former US ambassador to Indonesia, would likely be highly controversial, and could raise new questions about the process by which the World Bank chief is selected. One administration official said his nomination “would have enormous repercussions within the development community”. [Yeah, no shit...]

Fighting fire with gasoline, assigning the fox to guard the chicken coop, sharpening Jack the Ripper's blade, hiring a pedophile rapist as your babysitter — whatever you want to call it, it's a great strategy for the endtimes...

I mean, why wait? Let's put this baby into overdrive!

It's just getting weirder, nastier, more surreal, and more darkly comic with each passing day. ("We're comic. We're all comics. We live in a comic time. And the worse it gets the more comic we are." —William Gaddis)

In fact, with each passing day I'm thinking more and more about BushCo's assertion that they're "creating other new realities, which you can study" and seeing just how true it is. To me this is most amazingly exemplified by the most inconceivably mind-boggling, awesome magic trick in human history: the fact that there is no conclusive proof — either for or against! — that a 757 passenger jet actually smashed into the Pentagon, one of the largest, most famous buildings in the world, in the middle of a major urban area, and most likely surrounded by all sorts of cameras and radar. How can such a thing even be credibly debated? And yet it is. This fact alone signifies that BushCo are magicians of the first order, truly able, as they claim, to "create our own reality." It's enough to make one wonder if maybe there's something to the theories tying Aleister Crowley/Black Magick/Illuminati/Skull & Bones/Thule/etc. together. It seems human history has entered a period in which the monumental storm front containing the world of smoke and mirrors has engulfed us in its fury; it seems that those of us who live in the "reality-based community" and "believe that solutions emerge from [our] judicious study of discernible reality" really may be at a loss for how to understand just what really is going on. Reluctant as I am to do it, we may need to follow Alice into the Looking Glass to figure out just what the fuck is going on...

However, before plunging into the mirror I'll stick with my "reality-based" assumptions that what's commonly called "conspiracy" is really nothing more nor less than the covert implementation of boardroom policy as determined by a self-perpetuating, secretive executive class with lots of power...I'll believe this until things such as The Montauk Project grab hold of me and yank me in...

Some archetypal food for thought:
There is a familiar scene in many fantasies and great epics: when it comes time for the hero to slay the dragon or beast that is his enemy, he inflicts upon it a mortal wound. The one reading or watching the story longs to breath a sigh of relief at this point when it grows clear that the dragon will die. But when a strong beast is wounded, it becomes violently angry. The wounded dragon seems to lash out with ten times more strength and fury, causing us to wonder if the hero will survive the conflict. Although the dragon is dying, it rears up, determined to take others down with it, wounding as many as it can before it breathes its last.
[from Ravi Zacharias International Ministries]

And speaking of The Great Beast...

For these fools of men and their woes care not thou at all! They feel little; what is, is balanced by weak joys; but ye are my chosen ones. (1:31)

To me! To me! (1:65)

These are dead, these fellows; they feel not. We are not for the poor and sad: the lords of the earth are our kinsfolk. (2:18)

We have nothing with the outcast and the unfit: let them die in their misery. For they feel not. Compassion is the vice of kings: stamp down the wretched & the weak: this is the law of the strong: this is our law and the joy of the world. Think not, o king, upon that lie: That Thou Must Die: verily thou shalt not die, but live. Now let it be understood: If the body of the King dissolve, he shall remain in pure ecstasy for ever. Nuit! Hadit! Ra-Hoor-Khuit! The Sun, Strength & Sight, Light; these are for the servants of the Star & the Snake. (2:21)

I am the secret Serpent coiled about to spring: in my coiling there is joy. If I lift up my head, I and my Nuit are one. If I droop down mine head, and shoot forth venom, then is rapture of the earth, and I and the earth are one. (2:26) [cf: de Sade]

If Power asks why, then is Power weakness. (2:31)

Also reason is a lie; for there is a factor infinite & unknown; & all their words are skew-wise. (2:32)

Pity not the fallen! I never knew them. I am not for them. I console not: I hate the consoled & the consoler. (2:48)

I will give you a war-engine. (3:7)

With it ye shall smite the peoples; and none shall stand before you. (3:8)

Mercy let be off; damn them who pity! Kill and torture; spare not; be upon them! (3:18)

There is no law beyond Do what thou wilt. (3:60)

Sounds almost like the gameplan for BushCo, doesn't it?

For some fun speculation on Crowley's relation to Murka's National Security State go here and here and here. Like it or not, coincidence or not, red herring or not, Crowley's name keeps cropping up in the strangest places...
