Many of us have heard Greenspan’s spooky comment about the heart of his job being making sure the average person didnt get too comfortable. It always bugged me deeply. But someone reacently pointed out that it meant his job was to keep the average person living in fear through creating the conditions of insecurity so they couldnt come together and push for a higher standard of living. Fed chair as chief terrorist because business security in the age of artificial security is based on an ever decreasing standard of living and the transfer of more and more power away from citizens to the state and the wealthy.
Since Nixon its been a game of artificial scarcity and fear promotion to enforce it. You see the conservatives in particular waging what amounts to a war on the global population with relentless attacks on retirement, wages, with austerity and hollowing out infrastructure, surveilance and constant talk of terror and defunding education, conflation of money with speech. I think we know who the terrorists are know and we recognize their role of trying to scare away our rights and steal our futures while eliminating our quality of life. Their goal is our complete enslavement through economic terrorism. Our choice is to recognize it, oppose and reverse it completely.
