Global War of Error

Each week, LA Progressive’s editors pick what they regard as a particularly insightful comment from one of our readers, both to draw attention to one particular reader’s thoughts and to encourage more readers to weigh in with their opinions. This week’s pithy "Feedback Friday" response comes from Ron Rodarte who commented on the article by Tom Engelhardt, "The Global War of Error: No, That’s Not a Typo."

Dear Tom, you are entirely accurate in the term “Global War of Error”, in that the entire concept of a NeoConservative economic policy is to wage war by any means necessary, even to the extent of “looking foolish” to promote the war efforts. Let me explain.

An economics class was offered at the University of California at Santa Barbara in the summer of 1975. The class was a higher level Economics class entitled “The Economics of War” taught by a professor named Paul Wolfowitz.

The class was a bizarre daily event of Paul Wolfowitz outlining and questioning the class on the concept of driving the economy of capitalism after the frontier markets of a finite planet were no longer available.

This classroom discussion became the keystone of the American economic policy as outlined in the Wolfowitz NeoConservative economic theory.
While his class and I sat in utter disgust at the proposed concept of reigning wars to drive Professor Wolfowitz’ concept of a “Capitalist Democracy” (an oxymoron) it became clear that one particular method was favored by Wolfowitz and was described in one of the texts required for reading, “Why Nations Go To War”, 1st Edition (there was only Vietnam still smoldering in 1976, and the wars to come that make the 12th edition were only a gleam in the eye of Paul Wolfowitz and his capitalist minions)

Recall the need for a “New Pearl Harbor” to open the NeoCon theater of conflict later termed “The War on Terror”. The Sarajevo Event is the key to stoking conflict in a geopolitical area.

Please note that there was an edition in 1975, the cover was silver and the image of blood was splashed across that edition’s cover as the cover art.

That ideal circumstance towards NeoConservative continuous conflict was the Sarajevo Event.

Recall the need for a “New Pearl Harbor” to open the NeoCon theater of conflict later termed “The War on Terror”. The Sarajevo Event is the key to stoking conflict in a geopolitical area.

The assassination of Soleimani was not a tactical event, it was a policy event performed to complete the cycle of endless conflict. There is no difference to a NeoCon adherent to wage war immediately or wage war later. It is the continual stoking of conflict that is the goal and driving economic force of a dystopian economic survival mode of Capitalism, one could call it “cannibal capitalism” because it willfully destroys its own people and social structure to survive as an economic model. Re-shaping society to a violent and reactionary mob is exactly where the structure of NeoConservatism will find its best operating conditions.

The portrayal of a bumbling Pentagon and a vile, mentally disturbed President is a cover story for the long-term goals and plan of the NeoConservative economic adherents. The cover as such was slight embarrassment for the nascent Nazi Party and their leader Adolf Hitler during their rise to power in a Germany rendered socially dysfunctional by the Treaty of Versailles engineered by a cabal of Capitalists enthralled by the surprising wealth in World War 1 manufacturing. We are experiencing a similar and more targeted social disruption in an electronic communications and media that is light-years ahead of Goebbels efforts at carrying out the unification of the German people under the hatred of target groups.

As we witness the portrayed “blunders” of administrations and Pentagon “mistakes”, keep in mind the entire point of NeoConservatism in a pattern of “conflict at any price” – it is seen in economic terms of the NeoConservative as “profit by any means.”

Our planet is in an economic survival-dystopia of the dying system of Capitalism.

The power involved in Capitalism will not allow the system to morph into a less “profitable” social system.

War for profit is the end-game of Capitalism under the NeoConservative economic policy, and there is no amount of embarrassment sufficient to refuse the profits rendered by constant warfare enriching the capitalists enrolled in the NeoConservative economic policy of Washington, DC.
