74. I agree with you on many points

But look at it this way...

The ONLY thing that has enabled these 1% masters of the universe to lie/cheat/steal/manipulate (and sometimes invent) their way to the top is Cheap Oil. Without huge amounts of cheap oil, world commerce declines dramatically and/or goes belly-up. Without world commerce, the one-percenters holding billions if not trillions in offshore accounts will see their dollars re-valued to zero actual worth. What they end up with, in the end, is just what they were able to buy with their money while it was still worth something.

It didn't take much to induce the great financial and real-estate collapse. All they had to do was eliminate some of the regulations, conveniently fail to enforce other regulations -- then sit back and watch as natural human greed and avarice filled the void. Worked like a charm.

I believe that the truly well-placed and well-informed KNOW what is coming down the pipeline, and they are preparing for it. The military is preparing, the NSA and security apparatus is preparing (as in, they are now poised and ready to jump). And I read that the wealthy in Europe are buying up land in wine-country, digging their holes, getting ready for whatever might happen.

If you haven't watched "Oil Smoke and Mirrors", it might be worth your time. I found it chilling, frightening, but it made perfect sense.
