Geopolitical and financial analyst Warren Pollock says danger for all Americans is here right now. Pollock explains, “Where we are is more important than where we will be because right now, we are in sort of a Twilight Zone of transition between stability and instability. I think this is a dangerous time, and for some, it will be more dangerous than the actual collapse. . . . The entire system we live in today is one large racketeering engine, and we really have to understand that for us to negotiate around this looting that is going to occur. You cannot eliminate all the looting from your life, but you can go around it to a certain degree. For example, you might need a pair of eyeglasses and spend several hundred dollars when someone in China can make eyeglasses for $5 or $10 of the same or better quality. . . . There is no competition in the United States. There is no free election. There is no free market. There is not capitalism. All of these things that you believe to be in place right now are lies. . . . It’s procedural racketeering. It is the veneer of a functioning economy or a functional system. This sort of procedural racketeering is also procedural control and procedural information gathering. It is dystopia of epic proportions.”
Pollock goes on to say, “Think about your life and how you relate with procedures, and you will find that each and every one of these procedures leads to a destination, and that destination is racketeering. Why don’t we say that these procedures in total are described incorrectly as the New World Order. The correct way to describe this is the Apparatus, the procedural looting and racketeering apparatus that is systemically present in our political system, our economy and our interrelations between each other. So, we have this apparatus that is similar to a communist apparatus. It is similar to a watch with many dials in it and many gears in it. You are a cog in this machine, and all of a sudden, the gears wear off one of these small components, and guess what? The thing functions poorly, and then, a little later, the thing stops functioning entirely.”
How do you survive the system going down? Pollock says, “I think for your survival, it is totally essential that you understand where we are with no ambiguity. We are in the context of racketeering. The procedures are the tools the racketeers use, and the apparatus is the very large global system where we are today. This isn’t something to get emotional about . . . We’ve allowed our system to degenerate to the point that people cannot make decisions. . . . Harry Truman said, ‘The buck stops here.’ . . . In reality, what we are watching right now is the buck stopping. The buck is stopping, not only monetarily, if you look at M2 velocity of money, it’s stopping in capital formation. People can no longer take their money and start a productive enterprise. The buck is stopping in terms of people critically thinking. The buck is stopping in terms of taking responsibility and having accountability.”
In closing, Pollock says, “The question being asked is when is the collapse going to happen? We are in a worse period. It’s a pre-collapse period. This is what happened before WWII. This is what happened before Rome fell. It was a period in time where things worked sort of, a sort of function and a sort of dysfunction. There has always been racketeering in our economy and in our society. It’s human nature, but here’s the difference. In a society that’s functioning, the society can survive with some percentage of racketeering. Right now, racketeering is so pervasive you cannot do the things in society for that society to function.”
