Plundering the world’s natural resources and setting up proxy points of guaranteed distribution back to the Motherland is the lead stratagem behind an Imperialist-capitalist agenda that for centuries held their own class as chief inhabitants of the planet. Foreign and domestic policy today is almost entirely dictated by the interests of a few, a ruling Imperial class under the influence of lobbyists and front groups from any number of extractive industries, among other powerful corporations and rogue nations— all equally clamoring to shape the course of things.
Phony diplomats, doubling as mercantilist-shills for the most powerful corporations, working in mutual accord with corrupt foreign officials in host client-nations, are selling mass natural resource extraction to “developmentally poorer” countries as a way to prosperity. Alongside the practice of resource extraction, a powerful propaganda machine has emerged to create something of a national identity crisis for the many caught in between its razor sharp teeth. In their effort to quash popular rebellion and dissent—both domestically and abroad— the Imperialist class has found it advantageous to wipe out interfering indigenous cultural practices and to co-opt and pervert other ideologies, resistance movements, religions or truths that might stand in their way. Corporate interests have become state interests and the incessant drives for profit along with the notion of never-ending economic expansion have become mechanisms for this class warfare.
