There are no bullets. There are no bodies. There are no tanks and not even any boots on the ground. But it’s still a war nonetheless. You might be surprised to know that you’re one of the combatants. You might even be surprised that your side is losing.
This is not the usual kind of war. There is no battlefield in the traditional sense. Instead it’s a “stealth” war – conducted in the shadows and behind the scenes. It’s a war which is negotiated in back-room deals – a real life matrix where events are manipulated for the benefit of a few. This war is one-sided as it is being fought by only one side. You see, the other side is pretty much impervious to what is going on. They are unaware that trillions of dollars are at stake, not to mention their freedom.
The weapons are unconventional. Disinformation is frequently the weapon of choice. The six-o-clock news helps to determine what people hear and, therefore, what they believe. Public opinion polls don’t so much report on the mood of the public as they are used to sway public opinion.
Political ideology figures prominently too, but not how you would expect. Ideology is simply a means to an end. Its only purpose is to get others to buy in to the cause. They become the foot soldiers. They are totally expendable, such as Islamic terrorists/suicide bombers. They die for an idea that people have convinced them is worth dying for. Of course, their leaders would never make the same sacrifice. Sometimes, ideology (e.g. communism) asks people to make sacrifices for the “common good”. However, it’s only the people in charge who really profit from redistributing the wealth. You see, Karl Marx never cared a twit about the workers. His manifesto was just a means to control the masses.
It’s not a cast of the usual suspects either. Of course, there are the black-ops military operations. But there is also a wide range of organizations involved from non-profits to foundations to think tanks, with plenty of help from the media, the educational system – and of course the government.
So what’s the real story?
What I’m talking about is essentially class warfare. It’s a struggle between the haves and the have-nots. It’s an invisible battle that has been going on under many different guises for a very long time.
Consider this. In the days of yore, the kings had their subjects, for whom they had little to no regard, to grow the food and provide the manpower to support and protect the kingdom. People were taxed into oblivion and had very little, if any, freedom. Today, despite all the progress, it’s really not that much different. Now, there’s a new class of elites which includes Wall Street mavens, world bankers and politically-connected people of all stripes. Is it any wonder that the middle class in this country has been virtually wiped out. Of course, you can’t have a free society without a middle class. But then… that is the general idea.
Gone are the days when The American Dream used to define our aspirations and our very way of life. Gone are the immigrants who did much to make this country great. They have been replaced by a flood of illegals who have been a major contributor to our economic plight. It’s a dangerous world we live in today and it’s headed in the wrong direction. We now have a culture whose legacy is one of out-of-control corruption. A culture which breeds contempt for other people’s rights. Now, it’s “He with the most gold rules.”
Ultimately, it’s a war for the control of people’s minds. Unless people can put a face on an invisible enemy, they will never appreciate that they themselves are at risk. The powers that be can’t afford for the masses to know that there is a war going on – a war against the Constitution, their liberties and God. If the people were to finally realize what is happening, it would no doubt lead to insurrection. But of course… now you know.
“The issue today is the same as it has been throughout all history, whether man shall be allowed to govern himself, or be ruled by a small elite.”
