Seeing past the lies

By Brittany Yurkovitch on 8/5/2012

“America is a Nation with a mission – and that mission comes from our most basic beliefs. We have no desire to dominate, no ambitions of empire. Our aim is a democratic peace – a peace founded upon the dignity and rights of every man and woman.” -George W. Bush

The idea that America is NOT an empire ranks as one of my favorite lies that we hear from our dear leaders. The mainstream media reinforces this lie as they consciously ignore the mounting evidence that the control over the world’s people and resources is indeed, priority number one.  Empires have that parasitic characteristic of using force to extract wealth from the conquered territory. With about 1000 US military bases stationed around the world, conflicts inevitably erupt and the policy goal of peace fails to be reached. Recently, I read an interview with John Perkins, author of Confessions of an Economic Hitman.  He stated:
“Basically what we were trained to do and what our job is to do is to build up the American empire. To bring — to create situations where as many resources as possible flow into this country, to our corporations, and our government, and in fact we’ve been very successful. We’ve built the largest empire in the history of the world. It’s been done over the last 50 years since World War II with very little military might, actually. It’s only in rare instances like Iraq where the military comes in as a last resort. This empire, unlike any other in the history of the world, has been built primarily through economic manipulation, through cheating, through fraud, through seducing people into our way of life, through the economic hit men. I was very much a part of that.”
Sadly, I cannot think of any federal legislation passed in recent times that gives freedom lovers a reason to celebrate. While history shows us that the subjects of the empire were victimized by the state, history also shows us that all empires inevitably collapse under their own weight. While I think individuals can take some steps to help lessen the risk of becoming the collateral damage of an empire collapse, I question whether or not our nation, as a political structure, could ever manage to implement the following changes needed to manage a collapse:

 

1. Invoke a major change in foreign policy by:  A. Terminating Empire-USA, and its role as policeman and bully of the world, and focus on homeland defense.  B. Reducing spending and conflict by closing most, or all, overseas bases, and keeping only a minimal standing army (primarily State-controlled National Guard).  C. Stop meddling in the affairs of other nations by force, sanctions, or bribery (no preemptive wars or occupations).  D. Promote free trade.

2. Invoke a similar change in domestic policy where:  A. Federal spending is reduced by 50% or more.  B. Creation of new fake money is ended.  C. Sound money is introduced (paper is convertible to precious metal), and the Federal Reserve System is abolished.  D. The Constitution and law are adhered to (with repeal of recent bad laws).  E. Market intervention (favors to firms, unions, people) is ended, and free enterprise capitalism is used.

These steps would help bring the government back to its proper role to, “Protect the personal and property rights of citizens, as individuals, from threat or violation by others.” With this approach, the USA and its citizens would enjoy a future of peace, prosperity, justice and good ethics. It always works! I cite W. Germany in 1948, and later Ireland, Prov. of Alberta, Canada, and New Zealand.” -  The Phases of an Empire, David Redi (Activist Post)
