But in order to prop up the petrodollar, Western elites did their best to ensure that most oil came from the Middle East.
Cut to the 21st century. The Internet era has exposed elite scarcity manipulations. Perhaps because they are so well known by now, elite manipulators are not trying to hide the manipulations anymore.
The goal of arriving at a more comprehensive world government has apparently trumped oil-scarcity propaganda. The low price of oil also destabilizes the US’s current number one “enemy” – Russia.
But the main goal it would seem is to destabilize the petrodollar. Thus Saudi Arabia, once a staunch US ally, is being shaken by low oil prices in order to shatter the dollar reserve currency.
Such is the determination to create a global currency that the elites have been willing to destabilize not only the petrodollar but “sustainability” propaganda itself.
A Catallaxy Files article posted in late February makes the point that while the UN is “trying to organise a reaffirmation meeting in April by national leaders of the sacred emission reduction pledges they made in Paris last December, reality is moving against it.”
The question that will now occur to readers is twofold. First, how does sustainable energy support the move toward globalization? Second, why are elites destabilizing a movement they have worked so hard to build?
The sustainable energy movement is pro-globalization in two ways. It creates complex alternative sources of energy that are produced by huge “farms.” And it discourages the use of oil and coal that are easily acquired on a local level.
The goal is always the same: Remove power from the individual and his circumstances and circumscribe “human action.”
But pursuit of a destabilized petrodollar is also destabilizing the “alternative energy” movement. This just shows how determinedly elites are pursuing their larger, globalist goals.
The green movement is being shattered on the altar of petrodollar reduction.
Please watch the Hegelian dialectic at work here. The “sustainability” movement has been built up laboriously and sustained by advantageous, government-sponsored price controls. But now that movement is being ruptured by the manipulation of oil prices.
The outcome is that most desired social evolution: chaos. Over time, the world’s economy must be ripped to pieces before it can be reassembled. That’s what is going on now. The globalist alternative energy movement is sacrosanct no more.
Remember the 1970s? Then, a whole slew of solar and wind power companies eventually went out of business. The same thing is probably destined to happen again, though for slightly different reasons.
