OK Boomer Gibberish

Both are victims of a rigged economic system.

The latest mindless internet meme, “OK Boomer,” is a dismissive catchphrase used by so-called millennials. It went viral after an elderly man posted a video where he described millennials as a group of people suffering from the “Peter Pan” syndrome, that is to say, they never want to grow up and face reality.

Naturally, this pejorative fits comfortably within the larger social justice narrative. Millennials believe Baby Boomers are in denial of climate change (recently rebranded as climate collapse), are resistant to technological change, and of course indifferent to the supposed plight of state-mandated special classes of people said to be “marginalized” and “at-risk” of violence perpetrated by “toxic” white males.  

Boomers are blamed for the economic hardship millennials face. It does not occur to them Boomers are victims of the same rigged economic monetary system, a vacuum hose sucking up the vast majority of wealth upward into banks, corporations, and the offshore coffers of a financial class. It does not occur to them—and this is largely the fault of “public education”—that Boomers are victims of the same exploitative and parasitical behavior of a predatory class as their children and grandchildren. 

This critique rarely makes it to the pages of the NYT or the screens of MSNBC, CNN, FOX, etc. because reality and history are deliberately obfuscated and distorted by the establishment and its institutions, including a media long ago penetrated by the national security state. 

The corporate propaganda media regurgitates economic statistics put out by the state—low inflation, new jobs, record unemployment—and most of it is bullshit, something keenly smelt out here in flyover country. 

All of this economic turmoil and decline isn’t an unavoidable force of nature. It’s not part of a self-correcting dynamic. It is instead a well-plotted course of action. 

It is the next phase of the neoliberal agenda—a consolidation of global wealth in the hands of a hidden and powerful few. This economic concentration and centralization have resulted in massive social and political upheaval around the world, specifically over the last few years. Neoliberal strip-mine operations—corporate privatization and exploitation of resources—have operated since the end of the Second World War and the establishment of the Bretton Woods system and its now faltering sibling, Bretton Woods II.

The financial elite and their corporate partners are authoritarian in orientation—and some argue by genetic predisposition—and the final objective is complete control of a global economic arrangement and all it entails, including the role of world militaries and law enforcement.

Before this can happen, however, the population in the so-called first world must have its standard of living reduced drastically. I believe we are seeing this unfold and have since the orchestrated “subprime crisis” of a decade ago. The Federal Reserve admits it orchestrated the Great Depression—and it is now pulling off a greatly magnified rerun as a number of economic time bomb asset bubbles ripen and ready to implode with disastrous social and political result. 

It’s a classic Hegelian “Problem, Reaction, Solution” strategy. Crash the economy—after strip-mining it of wealth—and propose police state and command economy “solutions” on a global scale to ameliorate problems. 

Before that can happen, however, the population must be propagandized and politically polarized to such extent violence is inevitable. 

9/11 ushered in a raft of totalitarian legislation and the next phase will do likewise. One possibility for a viable pretext for the unleashing of a militarized police—or the US military proper—on America may be a false flag terror attack blamed on “white supremacists and conspiracy theory extremists,” two groups of Americans now under the magnifying glass of America’s secret political police, the FBI. 

Millennials and boomers are woefully ignorant of the real way the world works. They are subject to relentless propaganda and sheltered from the harsh realities of neoliberal economics, at least for the moment. America’s problems are blamed on foreign nations—Russia, China, North Korea, Iraq, Iran, Syria, Venezuela, virtually ad nauseam—and we are lectured continually on how this roster of enemies pose a dire threat to America. Meanwhile, cancer eats away from within. 

The “OK Boomer” pejorative—trendy, thoughtless, knee-jerk, and fitting of our era of shared historical ignorance and political narcosis—is further evidence we may not realize until it is too late the precise cause of our social and political demise. 

Instead of addressing real issues—economic piracy by the elite, manufactured war for-profit, corporate destruction of ecosystems—we are caught in a downward cycle that will produce widespread poverty, endless conflict, and destruction for private profit.

Socialism and an Economy Ready to Crash and Burn

Establishment Dems freak out over socialism.

Obama knows Democrats will lose next November if they keep pushing socialism as a campaign objective. Americans on the coasts may support a command economy, control freak regulations, legalized theft—larger theft than now—and a braindead wad of social justice idiocy that is predicated on racism and sexism, but all of this is rejected by voters out here in flyover country. 

Obama may want to ask why people support radical ideologies. The answer is simple—most Americans are struggling to make ends meet and millions are no longer the middle class. Half the country is on government assistance. 

The implosion of the economy going on behind the smokescreen of Trump’s feel good propaganda—millions of jobs created (if you don’t mind minimum wage) and low inflation (when it is in fact over 10%)—will convince many Americans that capitalism is broken and the answer is communism (as Gary Allen noted a few decades ago, socialism and communism are virtually the same). 

Left out of the conversation is the fact Obama and his predecessors are responsible for a crumbling economy. Trump, who said he would take a hard look at the Federal Reserve and then forgot about this campaign promise after the election, is basically the same as Obama, Clinton, Bush, and the rest of the neoliberal clan that runs the economy. 

Obama in particular. He gave his blessing to “bailing out” the banks, essentially a reward for banksters who nearly crashed the economy a decade ago with their financial instruments of destruction. 

Since that time, the controllers and their clan of professional shysters have scooped up billions by moving funny money around, hedging bets, repackaging toxic waste as investment, and moving wealth into the coffers of the ultra-rich and corporations. 

These professional economic criminals are responsible for huge “asset bubbles” that are now splitting at the seams, ready to crash and drive the country into a horrific depression, “The Greatest Depression.” The last depression, simply “Great,” was engineered by the Federal Reserve and its cartel of banksters. This was admitted by former Fed boss, Ben Bernanke. 

The people, generally ignorant of economic issues, will run to the socialists after the economy implodes. There is a distinct possibility it will crash before the election, thus sealing Trump’s fate, and thus ushering in a freshly minted cabal of SJW socialists masquerading as Democrats led by Elizabeth Warren (a multimillionaire) and Bernie Sanders (also a multimillionaire). 

However, as it stands now, most Americans are not supportive of the sort of socialism advocated by Warren and Sanders. In 2016, around half of voters went to the polls to pull the lever for Trump. 

It is primarily millennials pushing for socialism. This is to be expected. Not only are they woefully ignorant of economics, but they are also seriously brainwashed by the state’s educational institutions. 

I don’t think Warren, Sanders, Beto, Mayor Pete, Kamala, and the rest stand a chance, not necessarily due to a rejection by Americans (why else would the mental case Joe Biden be a frontrunner). 

Early next year, Hillary Clinton will announce her candidacy and the DNC will clear the board, sweeping away the SJW Democrats, basically the same two-step they performed on Sanders in 2016. 

Responsibility for the crashing economy will be foisted off on Trump, mostly because most Americans don’t understand the president has little effect on the economy and the damage is largely inflicted by the Federal Reserve and the banksters. 

Of course, it doesn’t really matter who wins the election. There is little substantial difference between Democrats and Republicans. Both support the current fraudulent economic system that drives wealth into the coffers of the mega-wealthy at the expense of average citizens. 

Here’s What You’ll Pay for Neocon Wars: $5,900,000,000,000

More evidence the “war on terror,” now shifted over to a New Cold War against Russia and China, is nothing if not a money-maker for the merchants of death and the usury banksters.

The Real Rape Culture

Did you know Senator Susan Collins enables rape? She voted to confirm Brett Kavanaugh, so what other conclusion can be reached? Not that Kavanaugh was accused of rape and it turned out to be almost impossible to prove he forced himself on a girl three long decades ago.
