The laziest generations

At the turn of the last century workers and students around the world were willing to take to the streets, launch revolutions, and battle the agents of the wealthy elite to death, if need be, in order to advance basic human rights of justice and equality for all, fair and living wages, and tolerable living conditions. In the United States, the monopolies of the Rockefeller, Carnegie, and Vanderbilt were broken up and in Europe lethargic and impassionate monarchies were overthrown by popular worker-led revolutions.  

Fast forward the calendar to the present and the world is witnessing the same ingredients that forced change in the early 1900s. The people of Greece, the cradle of democracy, have witnessed their entire nation picked clean by the Euro-banker vultures, with the House of Rothschild rubbing their hands behind the central bankers, in a foreign-dictated series of austerity programs.

However, unlike the progressive popular movements of the early 20th century, workers and students in Greece and other nations afflicted by the global banking-imposed austerity programs, lose their steam after holding a few general strikes, marches on parliament, and the occasional overturning of a police car. Events that should be concluding in a series of overthrows of banker-controlled governments in Athens, Rome, Madrid, and Lisbon by united worker-student-pensioner popular fronts instead end up with establishment oligarchical political parties forming coalitions that answer only to the dictates of supranational contrivances of the global elite. Today, it is the European Union, the European Central Bank, and the International Monetary Fund that dictates who governs nations like Greece, Italy, Spain, and Portugal, not the people of those countries.

Why can’t true popular revolutions succeed? The reason is that the elites are able to more effectively use information technology to their own benefits, leaving mass movements in the dust. So-called social networking technologies like Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn are not only monitored by intelligence services with global reach, like the National Security Agency, but much of the seed money for companies involved in social networking came from the Central Intelligence Agency’s venture capital firm, IN-Q-TEL. And international hedge fund tycoon George Soros, who fancies himself as a leader for popular change, has invested heavily in Facebook and LinkedIn. In addition, Soros, who is nothing more than a front man for the House of Rothschild, has ensured that Twitter is the social networking platform of choice for “themed revolutions” financed by his Open Society Institute and Foundation. In other words, the technology heralded by the corporate media as the catalyst for change is owned, operated, and surveilled by the very forces that are subjecting workers, students, and pensioners to a new form of feudalism and indentured servitude.

The “themed revolutions” have never resulted in a true worker-led government coming to power. In Ukraine, Georgia, Moldova, Kyrgyzstan, and Serbia the results of themed revolutions financed by Soros and orchestrated with social networking technology were reactionary regimes that favored the immediate sell-off of state-owned property to greedy globalist consortiums, crack-downs on internal opposition, and dalliances with tools of capitalist control like the EU, World Bank, and IMF … //

… One of the worst scourges America has visited upon the world is that of popular “culture.” Even though social networking technology is controlled and thoroughly monitored by governments, it is used primarily to swap information about the most meaningless issues conceivable—pop singers and bands, sports, and consumerist tripe. If the bankers finally push people far enough to the point where they want to react aggressively, someone will probably invent a Molotov cocktail i-Phone app that can virtually strike its target.
