But by blaming capitalism, leftists who warn about wealth inequality are playing right into the elite’s hands – because their solution is going to be more power in the hands of the state and central banks, the very same policies which caused the problem in the first place.
Wealth inequality is being exacerbated by a drop in real wages. As real wages fall, it will become increasingly harder to pacify younger generations via consumer culture. With religion, family and social mobility all declining in influence, lifestyles built around the acquisition of products will become harder to maintain as the economic environment worsens – prompting further disenfranchisement amongst young people.
This effect is amplified by the global political awakening acknowledged by elitists like Zbigniew Brzezinski, a political renaissance that has been driven by the increasingly widespread availability of information thanks to the Internet.
In an effort to derail this organic global political awakening, elitists like George Soros, who predicted class war and riots over three years ago, are bankrolling what on the surface appear to be grass roots uprisings in an effort to steer and divert their impact.
An uprising that could have been centered on reducing state power has instead been hijacked from below by criminal opportunists and from above by the elite itself.
Now that this uprising has been subverted, the elite will use the fallout – violent riots and looting in major cities across America – to enlist support from average Americans for an increase in state power and, in the aftermath of the next financial collapse, economic totalitarianism, government controlled bank accounts, and a move towards banning cash altogether.
It’s the age old problem-reaction-solution method at play once again. They’re getting ready to re-brand authoritarianism as a populist policy and the majority of Americans will lap it up once they see more cities burning.
As Brandon Smith explains, “The international banking cult has NO INTEREST whatsoever in saving the current system, despite the assumptions of many market analysts. Their only goal has been to stave off the visible effects of the crisis until a new system is ready (psychologically justified in the public consciousness) to be put into place.”
This new system will be characterized by more authoritarianism, a bigger police state and less economic freedom.
We know that the elite are expecting this crisis because they’ve made preparations to deal with the fallout.
The New York Times reported that the wealthy are installing expensive bulletproof safe rooms in their luxury apartments and homes to protect against increased criminality, looting, and physical threats to their safety.
Economist Robert Johnson also revealed that elitists at the Davos Economic Forum told him they were buying remote hideaways in places like New Zealand to escape potential Ferguson-style uprisings on a bigger scale.
Urban unrest experts like Dr. Max Herman say that the United States is on the cusp of a new cycle of civil unrest. Economist Martin Armstrong predicts that “a serious political uprising will erupt by 2016″ in the United States.
I wouldn’t go that far, but it’s virtually guaranteed that we will see more widespread domestic disorder over the next two years if we continue to follow these disastrous Keynesian economic policies and allow populist social justice movements to be hijacked and subverted by the powers that be.
What’s most striking about this is that the vast majority of people simply do not care and are willing to sit idly by – distracted by the bread and circuses even as Rome collapses around them.
The elite are busy making preparations for the outcome of this next phase of the crisis….are you?
