Former Intelligence Chief: Expect Intensified Social Conflicts, Social Hostility, Civil Unrest, Extremism

He was the National Security Advisor for President Jimmy Carter from 1977-1981. In the early 80′s he controlled CIA counter insurgency operations in Soviet occupied Afghanistan. Under President Reagan he was a member of the Defense Department Commission on Integrated Long-Term Strategy. In 1998 he authored The Grand Chessboard – his views on geopolitics and geo-strategy. He is also a member of the Council on Foreign relations and an extremely intelligent individual with inside knowledge of the inner workings of the upper echelons of global command and control initiatives. Many have suggested that if a closely knit conglomerate of individuals does control the world he would have a seat at the boardroom table.
The point is, when Zbigniew Brzezinski talks, take note.
In a recent interview on Morning Joe, Brzezinski discusses a variety of topics, including the very troubling consequences of the continued degradation of our economy.
When you have stagnation, when you have a severe case of unemployment, the sense of social injustice can be terribly demoralizing and politically, in the long run, very dangerous. It can politicize social economic issues, create radicalism, class conflict, extremism.
I think that’s a real risk in our society…
[The tipping point is] When the lower middle class begins to be more severely affected and really begins to join the ranks of the unemployed or the financially threatened. I don’t think we’re yet at that point statistically.
Before too long, if there is a slippage in numbers downward, then of course it’ll become a social and political problem.
