The Ultimate Endgame
Yet what is particularly noteworthy about this new round of U.S. crony capitalism is that it involves both multinational and foreign corporations working in unison with global governmental institutions.
In terms of government, the push for ever-increasing global power, control, and wealth accumulation has been made abundantly evident in the United Nation’s Agenda 21 architecture. All while advocates for the related Sustainable Development double down on this architecture with their commentaries—commentaries that decry individual liberty and private property, while calling for the elimination of 80-90 percent of the human world population.
In terms of business, the push for ever-increasing global power, control, and wealth accumulation has been made abundantly evident in the formation world megabanks and multinational corporations that often exist outside the bounds of national taxation and regulation systems. And it is this power that has increasingly allowed the wealthiest international concerns to outcompete smaller rivals that must compete within domestic confines while burdened by increasingly burdensome costs and restrictions.
Indeed, it is with of global government institutions and global corporate institutions working together—outside the bounds of national governmental dynamics and domestic free-market dynamics—that the kleptocratic pursuits of historical despots, tyrants, and lesser dictators of all stripes have been taken to a whole new level.
For now the top 85 richest individuals (according to a report from the British humanitarian group Oxfam International) have managed to capture nearly half of the world’s wealth—65 times the wealth of the bottom half of the world’s populations. And these are the individuals who are broadly controlling political leaders and movements throughout the world.
That is, while most see growing governments throughout the world as a means by which to counter the income and wealth inequality created by free-market capitalism, the increasingly redistributive capacities of modern governments has done just the opposite, as this ever-increasing ability to pick winners and losers within society for government officials has mainly allowed them a means by which to redistribute the resources of the middle status ranks to those of the highest status and themselves on a global scale.
In other words, whether a matter of fascism, socialism, or any other form of totalitarianism, the goal and outcome will be the same if successful: to give those of lower status just enough to keep them from rebelling while using their support to subdue and strip the wealth and power from the middle status ranks—as the latter presents the main threat to those at the top of the status spectrum.
Meanwhile, it is only maximal personal liberty and the existence of a truly free marketplace that will naturally produce a thriving middle class with minimal numbers of low-status individuals and minimal numbers of high-status individuals—all commensurate with the bell-curve dynamics that define all natural variation patterns in conjunction with the standard of merit—the standard that inevitably defines what will survive and what will not according to the timeless and universal laws that are part and parcel of evolution by way of natural selection.
