|Don't tell the captives|
Their global intentions have been exposed for a century at least, which we put a finger on in the last episode: "One of our greatest helpers has been the State Department" - John D. Rockefeller (1909) (A History of Oil Addiction - 2). We should not just blow by that quote without analyzing it a bit, because it has some of the DNA of MOMCOM in it (don't we all?).
For example, we can analyze the statement by asking "why didn't Rockefeller say 'The Commerce Department' instead of 'The State Department' when he was pointing out the 'greatest helpers' of the fossil fuel industry?"
The simple and obvious answer is not only that he was being quite accurate, but that those fossil fuel interests had international intentions, foreign policy intentions, which only the U.S. State Department could help with.
The Commerce Department focuses on domestic commerce, while The State Department focuses on international commerce, and has also been around awhile ("The Department was created in 1789 and was the first executive department established" - Wikipedia).
These entities which have now become The International Private Empire, have always had long range goals that entail more vision than short-sighted election-to-election planning that politicians tend to utilize.
Which makes the politicians vulnerable, because they don't see beyond their own noses that way, but the global plutocracy is not completely invincible either.
Even though the fossil fuel interests have significant control within The International Private Empire, they have had to seek to protect themselves from the criticism that gets to their core.
Thus, they have reacted strongly when global warming induced climate change has been discussed, and have used their media, McTell News, to try to suppress climate science.
That is because that particular knowledge of climate science pierces through the outer layers of the onion they have fabricated for camouflage purposes, and goes down into the core layers.
That is, down to Oil-Qaeda, down to "the oil base", and down to the layers of the onion where the Oilah-Akbar language is spoken.
Thus, global warming induced climate change ideology is a very good vehicle for focusing the energy of resistance and good change onto the fossil fuel industry where it should be focused.
Their reaction is telling, in that there is a lot of propaganda of late that is an attempt to blame civilization's oil addiction problem on the populace (on the citizens) for using the oil.
But to the contrary, in the previous posts in this series, we have shown how the powers that be are the ones who led us into The Industrial Age and chose to power it by fossil fuels.
That history includes one standard process which all nations follow in terms of who leads and who follows:
But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy or a fascist dictatorship or a Parliament or a Communist dictatorship ... voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy.(The Universal Smedley, quoting General Hermann Goering). Poll after poll over the past decade has shown that the majority of people in the U.S. think that the nation has been going in the wrong direction.
Yet the powers that be do not listen, rather, those leaders continue in the direction they want to go (The W Direction = The Perilous Path).
But when their policies are exposed and then proven to be psychotic, they do as their fellow psychopaths do, and try to put their blame on their victims (see Plutocrats: The Rise of the Global Super Rich, by Christia Freeland; caution she is an enabler to some degree, so also see Ayn Rand: Patron Saint of the Plutocracy).
