Never Enough: Zelensky Treks to DC, Begs for Billions More
Generations to come will be forced to pay off a stratospheric debt accumulated by spendthrifts, psychopaths, and warmongers.
The man in green, Volodymyr Oleksandrovych Zelenskyy, has arrived in the US to demand more money be shoveled into the bottomless pit that is Ukraine.
Earlier this week, I saw a young woman standing on the corner of an intersection as I drove home from the grocery store. She had a cardboard sign and it read: NEED $ TO PAY RENT. PLEASE HELP. GOD BLESS.
Since the pandemic, every busy intersection in this city has at least one or two homeless people begging for money and asking for help. In the past, the street corner beggars were mostly male drug addicts and alcoholics, but now they are young men and women. I occasionally see mentally ill people pacing up and down sidewalks—shoeless, dazed, and ignored. The street is where you go when there are no other options.
More than half of Americans live paycheck-to-paycheck and the situation for the middle class grows more perilous with each passing day. Meanwhile, the rich get richer (making a fortune during the pandemic), thanks in large part to the bankster cartel, the Federal Reserve.
In a somewhat more perfect world, the government would reform monetary policy, audit the federal reserve, and preferably get rid of it altogether. But that’s not going to happen. The staggering debt will not be addressed, nor will it be forgiven. Generations to come will be forced to pay off a stratospheric debt accumulated by spendthrifts, psychopaths, and warmongers. It is part of a long-term plan to reduce millions of people to poverty and dependence on the state.
However, the way things are going, I’m not sure if there will be future generations. Sorry to be a bummer, but I see very little if any light at the end of the tunnel. If the trajectory we are following continues, we will end up with nuclear winter and dystopia.
Short of “draining the swamp,” torching K Street, and salting the ashes, the current monetary and military insanity will continue until the bottom falls out. The lesson of Trump is that any political outlier not a member of the uniparty political class—not taking orders from the elite and the national security state—will be attacked, threatened, investigated, slandered by the corporate media, de-platformed, and have his or her life destroyed.
Zelenskyy’s pathetic entreat for endless money will not fall on deaf ears. Both factions of the uniparty are gung-ho on gifting the ultranationalist whack jobs in Ukraine with tons of cash and weapons, much of the latter ending up in Africa, specifically in the Lake Chad Basin, and into the hands of Boko Haram and ISIS. In addition, USG-supplied weapons arrive in Finland “where ‘three of the world’s largest motorcycle gangs’ now operate, including Bandidos MC, which ‘has a branch in every major city in Ukraine.’”
Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Oleg Syromolotov said back in April that USG weapons are now filtering into West Asia. “The diplomat went on to say that it is obvious that Kiev, which has no control over the militants' actions, will be unable to ensure the safe storage and non-proliferation of these weapons, which may then end up in the shadow markets of other countries.”
Short of nuclear war, nuclear winter, and species extinction, the ruling elite, and its embedded neocons, will continue the long-term effort to destroy the middle class.
During my research following the events of 9/11, I read up on Leo Strauss and his disciples. Strauss believed a deceitful and amoral ruling class, based on Plato’s Republic model, should rule, and the lower classes, locked in poverty and ignorance, should throw themselves headlong into perpetual war.
For the original neocon philosophers (notably, Leo Strauss, Alexandre Kojève, and Carl Schmitt), it was imperative the lower classes, the engineered poor kept in blinkered ignorance, understand
that man’s humanity depended on his willingness to rush naked into battle and headlong to his death. Only perpetual war can overturn the modern project, with its emphasis on self-preservation and “creature comforts.”
I am convinced we are on the cusp of that horrid future now—that is if the psychopaths, brimming with hubris and malignant narcissism, do not blow up the world in their deluded conviction the “exceptional nation” can do no wrong and cannot be defeated.
