The idea of a nation died or became obsolete when the few embedded in the financial and big business sector lobbied for deregulation and globalization and successfully took over control of mankind’s self-created circulatory system — money and debt.
Just as huge multi-national corporations are used as a shell game to make those at the top millions and billions through stock options and bonuses, so now nations are used as shell games to make a few well-connected and networked individuals billions and trillions. The few that are well-connected have managed to obtain positions and control in key national organs — the government, the media, the Federal Reserve, the lobbyist machine, the banks, the investment banks, the legal framework, and the huge multi-national business conglomerates. Money, debt, labor, innovation, all flow fluidly across borders with the single simple-minded objective to increase profits that in turn primarily increase the wealth and power of the few. And they have at their disposal the military should that card need to be thrown down. The nation is dead and obsolete — an empty shell gutted and sold by a few legalized criminals.
But there is an important difference between the free-flowing laws of nature and that which mankind has defined as his laws of free-flowing capital and markets. The clouds, winds, and oceans derive their free-flowing nature from the powerful sun. The massive chunks of continents break free to create ocean expanses and collide to form towering mountains because of the Earth’s internal heat dynamo. The Earth, our solar system, our galaxy, all galaxies, fly effortlessly through infinite space at incredible speeds because of a uncomprehendable release of energy from the distant past.
In contrast, mankind has made the erroneous assumption that a piece of paper, an electronic bit, a coin, a piece of yellow metal, equates perfectly to energy created or expensed. Mankind further “compounds” his aforementioned erroneous assumption with the idea that energy created or expensed can be borrowed to use now and repay later using incremental energy as a payment for the opportunity to use more energy now. These erroneous assumptions are the reason a few have been able to siphon away power and wealth from the masses. But, if you look to the true power behind the free-flowing forces of nature, you will see and understand that the power and wealth in the hands of the few is really an illusion and a myth perpetuated by our own erroneous assumptions. These few don’t have power and wealth — all they have is paper, electronic bits, and gold-colored rocks.
