The Truth Bomb
The United States, the United Kingdom and France should not be worried about Russian missiles, they should be terrified of the “Truth Bomb’

Things are often never quite as they seem in the in West. When they talk about the liberation of nations they actually mean the imposing of colonialist occupation. When they talk about women’s rights they actually mean empowerment of exploitation of women’s femininity. When the governments talk about reducing the government budget deficit they are in fact increasing government debt.
Deception, sleight of hand, spin and distortion – are in truth what the West relies on in order to proceed from one crisis to another.
We have all become accustomed to this double speak; and we are all aware of disastrous outcomes that come about from this distortion such as the Iraq debacle; however, what we are witnessing now has moved beyond the double speak to the farcical.
The west has abandoned democracy, has destroyed diplomacy, has neutered the United Nations, has all but thrown away the rule of law, has gone to war against freedom of speech, has embraced propaganda and in the past few weeks, has abandoned common sense and sanity.
The Skripal affair which has quickly descended into a major public embarrassment to the UK government, has given way to accusations that Assad used chemical weapons against Syria for which an immediate military response is needed. This in turn has forced Russia to threaten to shoot down any missile and destroy the launch sites. Suddenly, the world is all talking about a potential nuclear Armageddon.
So, are we on the brink of Nuclear war? The reality is probably not. While pundits are focusing on how Putin’s response will be a military one; they are ignoring the deadlier weapon in his arsenal and that is the “Truth Bomb”.
Western economics is no different to other aspects of the capitalist way of life. On the face of it capitalism has bought unprecedented economic progress to the world.
Never has there been a period in history with levels of industrial activity that exist today.
Even so, as is the norm with the West, things are not quite as they seem. When one looks beneath the glitter and the glossy veneer, a different picture begins to emerge. This explains the tangled web the global geopolitical situation has become.
The truth bomb is that Western markets are a fraud. The treasury market is one where the biggest buyer is “the government itself”. The East knows the West is bankrupt. They know it no longer has any gold because they have it! They can see the finances of the various cities, states and federal government. They know the situation in derivatives is one giant mountain of dynamite waiting for a spark.
They know the rule of law is gone and the bail-ins of depositor funds is next. They can see that the West is monetizing the sales of Treasury securities. They see that the majority of its population has grown to rely on the government for everything.
They understand that the West has eroded all its institutions except their military, and even that is only a distorted version of a glorious past. The West is just an illusion of a glorious past which it alone destroyed through unnecessary military adventures.
These military adventures which were glorified were nothing but one debacle after another masked by the very same tactics of spin and deception. All the while, to mask the symptoms of these bad decisions, the West fooled itself and its population into believing that it was getting richer, while it has been systematically looting and consuming itself one achievement and one institution at a time. The house is now empty, and the consequences are bleak.
The United States, the United Kingdom and France should not be worried about Russian missiles, they should be terrified of the “Truth Bomb’.
