Many years ago, I went to see my bank manager. I hadn’t met him before as I’d only recently opened a business account at his bank.
I’d formed a partnership to start a marketing company and although we’d gained some very heavyweight clients, the upfront costs of the huge projects involved were hard for a small start up business to bear.
I always believe in paying suppliers and sub-contractors promptly and so decided to approach my new bank manager for an unsecured overdraft, I needed about fifty thousand pounds. Fifty thousand pounds in those days would still buy you a decent house in a nice part of town, so you can imagine the scepticism I was faced with when as a beer swilling sailor I asked for such a facility.
Well, after a carefully prepared presentation and much persuasion, I got my overdraft facility, I had convinced my bank manager to grant my request, a request that he had the authority to authorise.
Imagine what would happen if I was faced with the same situation today. My bank manager would stare at a computer screen and ask me questions from an electronic form, at the end of which, with a mouse click, the computer would tell him yes or no. I’m very certain I wouldn’t get my overdraft facility and the bank manager would have no authority, at least not directly, to circumvent the system.
This is what happens when you centralise systems, centralise power and authority. It makes for a cold, impersonal environment, very difficult to cater for the needs of individuals. People are disenfranchised and are all treated exactly the same. Personal relationships, trust and judgement count for nothing.
The advent of modern technology and information systems have only served to increase the headlong rush towards centralisation. Very often companies and corporations, particularly those of a national and global reach, have to face difficult decisions when deciding just how much to centralise their systems of control.
After all, a global business would have to cater for different market conditions, currencies, cultures and requirements. A business must be profitable and so it must make these decisions with this in mind. There are other options though and one is to lobby governments to make changes to their country’s laws, culture and traditions even though this may not be in the interests of the people they are supposed to represent.
Taking the European Union as an example, Eurocrats don’t seem to feel the need to run viable and sustainable economies in their pursuit of ever more centralised power. The Euro is a failure of a currency that was completely politically motivated rather than based on sound economic principles, as are so many of the EU’s dictates and policies. In pursuit of their centralised dream the people can go to hell.
Our country has been raped by globalism (in more ways than one), there is no concern for our long established culture and traditions, our environment and well being. I very much doubt if these globalists care if we live or die.
As we can see then, the centralisation of power and control does not lend itself to individual cultures and ways of life and the globalists realise that, in pursuit of their centralised dream, the sooner they can do away with these things the better. The destruction of our way of life is a prerequisite to the globalist dream and a nightmare for us.
Here then is the reason for the hordes of immigrants being driven to our shores and agreements such as the UN Global Compact, a power game and nothing else. So much for bleeding heart Liberalism and the noble sounding narratives of the EU and UN!
Individuality, culture and self determination are an anathema to globalist organisations. The sooner it is stamped out the better for them – and aren’t they working hard at it, aided by our politicians that are supposed to represent us! Democracy is not to be tolerated and in reality we haven’t had it for a long time if ever.
If we are to protect our way of life for future generations, save them from the cold, dark, impersonal world, this Tower of Babel that is growing before us, we need to establish a true democracy and Brexit was the first step on the road towards this. We must not lose it. We are human beings and not drones!
As I’ve already said, globalist organisations such as the EU and UN care nothing for working, sustainable economies in pursuit of their goals and I think that we’re about to realise the consequences of this. I’ve been studying or just watching the global economy for some time, even writing about it from time to time. There are so many Black Swans circling it is ridiculous and I think one of them is finally going to land: 2019, I think, will be a very difficult year.
I don’t have space to go into detail here, but I have a deep suspicion that, before Theresa May’s meaningful vote on her Brexit withdrawal agreement in January, we’re going to witness the start of some major ructions in the world economy and markets. I’d be very surprised if Theresa May and her cohorts don’t know this and are counting on it.
Of course if there are economic and financial ructions in the new year, the MSM will be screaming that it is all the fault of Brexit, we must revoke Article 50 or ratify May’s withdrawal agreement. This narrative must not be allowed to prevail.
Even if I’m wrong about my economic predictions above, I’m very sure that Theresa May has some carefully planned plot to get her Brexit betrayal over the line: we must be very, very careful.
