The New American World Order: How It Works
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 5, 2011
To understand how the American empire works, one needs to know three things.
First, asVitali and colleagues at Einstein’s alma mater — the ETH in Zurich Switzerland — demonstrate in a highly technical arxiv.org publication, a few dozen mostly financial corporations have direct or indirect control over virtually all of the rest of the World’s transnational corporations.
Second, as theoretical physicist Michio Kaku explains, the large multinational corporations based in the United States are dependent for their intellectual resources not on Americans or the American educational system, but on the H1B, the genius visa, that brings to America scientific and engineering talent from throughout the World.
Third, as John Stewart demonstrates, American democracy is a system under which the multinational corporations, through ownership of the media, ensure that the American people vote for one or other of the candidates acceptable to — which is to say controllable by — the managers of the great multinational corporations, i.e., the dynamic members of the plutocratic elite. (As the John Stewart clip indicates, Ron Paul is not an acceptable candidate for President because he is opposed to multiple, trillion dollar wars, which are an important source of income to a number of very large multinational corporations and the means by which those corporations gain unrestricted access to the World’s resources and markets.)
From these premises, the basic characteristics of the American New World Order can be inferred:
Money rules: global governance means plutocracy.
