The whole situation is a ‘Catch 22’ scenario: damned if you do, and damned if you don’t. The problem: we’re American citizens and this is our country. The concurrent problem? It is our country that caused this predicament to occur with North Korea…in a pattern of American imperialism that has been going on actively for about a hundred years. The problem is twofold:
1. North Korea can strike the U. S. with an EMP (Electromagnetic Pulse) attack and/or nuclear missiles, yet:
2. The United States government, through the current and prior two administrations has set the stage for this…as either:
A purposefully-created ‘threat’ to give America a ‘bogeyman’/Emmanuel Goldstein to focus on in a ‘Two-Minutes Hate’ drill…keep the ‘threat level’ alive, or A threat of insignificance grown and nurtured for the express purpose of taking down the country…while reaping profits and power for the oligarchy all along. There is an American oligarchy. The oligarchy is not only made up of business and industrial magnates, but of politicos and religious leaders. The business magnates need the lawmakers and politicos to give them ‘carte blanche’ with tax breaks and incentives such as government contracts. The system needs the general populace (or the ‘proletariat’) to pay taxes and ‘grunt’ out spending on consumer goods and services that keeps the whole thing intact. As in the movie ‘THX-1138,’ there must be periods to pay the utilities, pay for the food, pay taxes on gasoline, taxes on property, taxes on consumer goods, yearly tax increases, and insurances…health, automobile, homeowner…required insurances…
