The Economic Engine – or – SimCity and Civilization Explain The World

I’d like to start this post by thanking all of my dedicated readers and by welcoming the new ones. Over the past few months my readership has grown five-fold and I’m been receiving valuable feedback that I hope to put to use in my fight against Bankster corruption. Facing this overwhelming response, I had no option other than to completely re-design the site and launch it on my own domain, www.dethronethebanksters.com. Ever since I was about twelve years old I wanted my very own website. I figured it’d be about video games or sports or something – I never would have guessed that it would be focused on exposing the fraudulent acts of the Banksters and their minions. Life’s weird.

Many of my previous articles have focused on the nuances of the Financial System. Whether exposing the Crony Capitalism of the MegaBanks, detailing the Black Holes of Debt (Death) that have poisoned the Financial System, or warning against Bankster takeover in Europe, I’ve already put a lot out there when it comes to the many financial issues plaguing our society. I encourage you to take the time to read several of the articles so as to grasp the full scope of the Banksters’ treachery – perusing through just one or two won’t allow you to see the ever important ‘Big Picture’.

These articles often focus on issues related to the Financial System in isolation from the ‘rest of the world’; while it’s critical to understand these financial issues when exposing the Banksters (they do have BANK in their name), it’s important to realize that the Financial System is but a lubricant for an Engine. This Engine is responsible for the food in your fridge and the screen in front of your face, not the Financial System. Now, while both high finance and the banking sector do have a legitimate purpose in a modern society (they allow for efficiencies that aid in the production, and exchange of, goods and services), the Financial System isn’t capable of creating wealth on its own. The true horsepower of the Engine is generated on the farm, at the factory, and in the coal mine. It doesn’t come from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange, or from JP Morgan’s Boardroom. This Engine serves as a crucible of human innovation and effort; a place where Labor meets Capital to nurture humanity as it grows and reaches for the secrets of the Universe. Unfortunately, should the Banksters’ plans prove successful and the Engine stalls out, hundreds of millions will die, and billions will suffer. So, in an effort to prevent that scenario, let’s dig a bit deeper.

Developing a through understanding of the Engine is quite the daunting task. Professors and professionals alike spend careers trying to become experts in their niche, often publishing volumes of papers with titles such as “The Policy of Restricting the Importation of Grain” or “The Measure of Values, Stated and Illustrated”. If the eggheads spend decades of brainpower developing their understanding of one minute section of the Engine, how can the layman ever hope to ever understand the ‘Big Picture’? That’s what the Banksters want you to think. But I have a secret weapon: Real Time and Turn Based Strategy games. Yes, I credit SimCity, Civilization, Starcraft and Master of Orion (among others) for my intuitive understanding of the way a society grows, or collapses. Earning a Bachelor’s in Economics and a Master’s in Finance at Purdue may have helped to fill in some of the gaps, but there’s no doubt that all that gaming I did in my parents’ basement was invaluable to my fight against the Banksters. I’ll try to share that knowledge with you – if I’m successful, you will better understand how the Banksters are trying to rob you and your family. If I fail, well, at least my dream of a video game website lives!

If you’ve played one of these games you understand why it’s imperative to ‘expand to the fertile river plain in order to boost population in the Capital city, resulting in quicker research of The Alphabet’. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, pretend that the Engine requires three primary resources in order to operate: Energy, Food, and Gold. Yes, other resources are necessary (iron ore, wood, vespene gas), but these three primary resources are what count. Simply put, without them…. we will all die…quickly. This particular article is geared towards Energy – a future article will delve into the battle over Food. The third primary resource, Gold, won’t be discussed here because, well, nearly every other article on DethroneTheBanksters is about Gold.

I’m not necessarily referring to the physical metal when I use the word “Gold”. I use the term to represent a stable, trustworthy system for the exchange of goods and services; the Financial System I wrote about earlier. I must make this caveat because, for six thousand years, Gold (and Silver) actually did fill this role. Of course, the Banksters’ Grandfathers’ changed this and now there are many types of ‘Gold’ – mainly of the electronic and paper variety. This monumental switch took place in 1913 when the Federal Reserve Act was signed by President Woodrow Wilson, instituting the private Federal Reserve System. Soon thereafter the Federal Reserve Note displaced physical gold as the world’s reserve currency. So, no, “Gold” doesn’t just imply the various precious metals, it also includes fiat currencies as well as many other forms of paper wealth such as Black Holes of Debt (Death). Regardless, the Banksters’ planned implosion (and subsequent takeover) of the global economy is nothing more than a manipulation of their artificial “Gold” to gain undisputed control over the two other primary resources: Energy and Food. Remember, the Financial System is nothing but oil in the Engine, the true horsepower comes from the use of Energy and Food.

I’m not an engineer, or a physicist, but I’ll define an Energy resource as a “material that can be harnessed so as to power mechanical or electrical tools, which in turn produce tangible products and/or increase the efficiency, or enjoyment, of a person’s life”. There are tons of examples, but I will go through just one to make my point.

A truckload of coal is mined from the West Virginia mountains and shipped to a power plant on the East Coast. The coal is burned, water is boiled, steam is generated, and a turbine is turned – Zap! – you have electricity. This usable form of Energy is then sent via copper cable to a nearby metropolis, powering millions of machines and devices, allowing society to thrive. The Simoleons living in CityName rely on a truckload of coal being harnessed for its Energy. Without it, they move out of town. The consequences of a lack of Energy aren’t as innocuous as they are in Sim City because, unfortunately, if all the cities are out of Energy, people begin to starve and riot. Actually…riots were in Sim City…told ya, best damn Economic Model ever.

At the Dawn of Man the only available Energy came from the Elements and the Sun God. Now we have hydroelectric dams, nuclear reactors, solar panels, and gas-fired power plants. Our species discovered more powerful and efficient ways to produce Energy, leading to an exponential growth in economic might. The Engine became powerful enough to allow seven billion people to live on a planet where once there were only a few dozen (two?). This growth could only occur because a group of organic beings figured out how to turn various materials into usable forms of Energy. Pretty crazy, I know, I figured this out playing the Civilization series. Nothing like taking a tribe of natives from the cave to the stars over the course of 8000 years. Unless, of course, there was a nuclear holocaust somewhere along that journey. New Game.

So, with a bit of background on the importance of the Energy that powers the, it’s now time to, as per usual, shit on the Banksters.

Trying to explain all the ways the Banksters are attempting to take over our species’ Energy is nigh impossible because they are striking from all angles. Being forced to pick one, I will choose the fraud called “Climate Change”, formerly known as “Global Warming”. Al Gore and his other Globalist friends had to modify the moniker because, well, scientists couldn’t prove that the Earth was warming due to human activity. What they could prove was that the climate was ‘changing’; of course, everything is always changing on this blue orb of ours, but don’t tell that to the Inventor of the Internet. I’ve done a lot of research on this topic and can firmly state that carbon emissions from human activity are not going to cause the End of the World. Any major weather change in the past century is not unusual and can be explained by many other factors that are much more significant than a supposed increase in levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide. We may not be helping the problem, but we certainly aren’t cooking ourselves alive. In fact, my research points to an increase in solar activity as a prime factor, but that’s another discussion. I’m not saying that we’re not wrecking Mother Earth in a myriad of other ways, obviously we are and I will go into depth at some point in the future, but I’m telling you, the faux environmental movement you know as ‘the fight against Climate Change’ is yet another Ponzi scheme. And the Globalists and Banksters are running the whole operation. Again. Stop Them?

In an effort to keep this discussion concise, I will now reverse my stance and concede to the theory that states seas will rise 10 feet by 2050 lest we curb carbon emissions by ninety-percent. I don’t agree with this statement, but for now I will take it as Fact so that I may focus solely on Bankster Fraud. So, what do we do? Luckily for us, Al Gore & Co. have a simple strategy for saving the world.

Their plan is to reduce the ‘carbon footprint’ of humanity by imposing hefty taxes and fines on sources of Energy that have carbon dioxide as a by-product. The plan sounds promising if one were to assume carbon dioxide is a global threat leading to mass death and destruction – taxing fossil fuels will drive up prices, forcing people to use less, saving the world – but further analysis shows several chinks in the armor of this strategy. First and foremost, more than 70% of the world’s Energy comes from, you guessed it, fossil fuels. The amount of coal, oil and natural gas burned every day is far beyond our meager minds’ grasp. It’s impossible to ‘cut carbon emissions by 50% in the next ten years’ without also cutting the amount of Energy being used in theby a substantial fraction. How would you deal with a doubling of the price of gasoline, electricity, and food? How about a quadrupling? Perhaps some of you would be able to survive, and perhaps a few more still might be able to live a comfortable life, but for the average American this potential increase in the price of all goods and services requiring Energy would be the straw that broke the camel’s back. It would force the ‘middle class’ below the poverty line and, unfortunately, a few million of our countrymen would leave us from want of food. I guess you can throw in another billion dead in the Third World if you want to get technical about the death count, but I find that most people don’t respond to those numbers. So, a few million dead Americans it is.

We know that we can’t cut the amount of Energy supplied to our Engine or else people get hungry and riot. Check. Take it as fact that our other primary resource, Food, is nearly 100% Energy dependent in its modern form. Less Energy = Less Food. Check. If we want to limit carbon dioxide while keeping our Energy level constant (or growing), the only option is to increase the amount of Energy generated from sources that do not emit carbon dioxide. This sounds like a viable option until, again, you dig below the surface. There’s a reason fossil fuels are used to generate the vast majority of Energy we use every day: They are cheap and plentiful. I won’t get into the physics behind my statement, but know that the amount of potential Energy in a lump of coal or a barrel of oil is exponentially more than the cost-equivalent amount of Energy that can be generated via wind or solar power. Long story short, even if we put all of our Energy investment into solar and wind over the next ten years, carbon emissions would fall by less than 5%…and the price of Energy would skyrocket. There are some ambitious ideas out there about harnessing the ocean’s waves and the Earth’s own heat, but they will have zero impact over the next decade, and likely not much of an impact afterwards. Hydroelectric power is pretty respectable but it certainly won’t save the day given the fact that there are only a finite number of rivers to dam, and most of them have already been generating electricity for decades. I used to be a fan of nuclear power but after seeing the multi-reactor meltdown in Japan this past Spring I’m a bit wary. I’m more freaked out about the way various governments and media outlets tried to cover up the seriousness of the situation than I am of the technology itself to be honest. Actually, what they did was a crime, but I digress. The point is that even if we went all-Nuke it would take a decade before it started to make a dent in our ‘carbon emissions’ because of the logistics and investment involved – and Energy would still cost a lot more.

So we’re stuck. There’s no way for us to cut the amount of carbon we emit by a significant amount over the next decade or two without cutting the amount of Energy we have access to. Perfect.

This is where the Banksters come in. As I mentioned earlier, Al Gore and his Bankster friends would like to collect a tax that would be imposed on carbon-emitters to cut emissions. They propose that, by having you pay them an extra tax, the world will be saved from Climate Change. Read that sentence again and you have the gist of what’s wrong with their stupid Ponzi Scheme. What the fuck can Al Gore do to combat Climate Change with your money? Nothing, except buy another mansion on the ocean, and laugh at the fact that your carbon footprint is probably 1/5000th of his. Suckers!

I’m a bit long-winded this article so I’ll wrap it up here. There are dozens of examples I want to go through but know that the Banksters’ will continue to do everything in their power to restrict the amount of Energy available to the that sustains humanity. They will forbid the building of any new coal power plants in America unless it’s through General Electric (you can’t get any more Globalist than GE). They will cite bogus environmental concerns and play petty politics with vital energy projects like the Keystone XL pipeline to keep us reliant on their oil monopoly in the Middle East and elsewhere. They will force your children to shiver in the classroom at school to save Mother Earth. They have tons of tricks up their sleeves, both large and small, but their primary goal is to slowly but surely gain full control over Energy, Food, and Gold. If this happens, and at this rate it looks like it will by the end of the decade, you’ll probably wish you were dead, if you aren’t already. What can we do about it? Another day young grasshopper, the results of the Iowa Caucus are starting to come out! Ron Paul 2012!

Resistance is Victory!
