The Dollar, the American Thunder Bolt of Zeus

Most people do not know how much power and control the US holds over the world by the fact that the dollar is the reserve currency of the world. Until recently, it was the official currency of the world. By controlling the reserve currency, the US in fact, controlled the world. At Bretton-Woods, New Hampshire in 1944, the dollar was crowned Emperor of the World. The International Monetary Fund {IMF}, the World Bank, and the Bank for International Development were created to impose the rule of the dollar. These institutions have international sounding names, but they are as American as a McDonald’s hamburger…

After the Second World War, the Colonial World of Asia, Africa, Latin America, and the Carribean  were decolonized. Instead of being free and totally independent they went right into ” dollar debt dependency”. They jumped from the pan into the fire. In this Salto Mortale, they were guided and helped by, what do you know, the IMF, the World Bank, etc. The agenda was set by the US Government to fight Communism. They have been in hell ever since. Any leader who rebelled was overthrown, assassinated, hanged or impaled. Many communist countries of Eastern Europe were infiltrated and enticed into the beauty of dollar debt. Poland, Romania, Hungary, and Yugoslavia come to mind. Hungarian dollar debt was referred to as “Goulash Communism.” Communism is gone but the dollar debt remains. Also, Yugoslavia is no more, but the debt of the successor states has increased markedly.

Presently, the world is so indebted that debt can hardly grow. The burden of debt of the Third World and many countries of the First World has become unbearable. Individuals, countries, nations, and other entities  will start going into default. The US is the most indebted nation in the world ,but that is no big deal, because it is indebted in its own currency. The rest of the world supports the US debt by holding dollars. In the process it is subservient to US interests. In other words, whatever the US wants, it gets and the rest of the world pays, because US possesses the Thunder Bolt of Zeus.

It is immoral to entice individuals, and/or nations to go into debt, Christianity and Islam condemn usury; it is a criminal act. The Western media constantly encourages people to go into debt. Capitalism without debt is like life on earth without water. It cannot exist and thrive. The world’s debt is slowing down, hence consumption is decreasing which is leading to a deceleration of growth.  Wages are stagnant or decreasing. The velocity of money is at an all time low. The Baltic Dry Index is going down. World trade is decreasing. The recovery in the US has not been ” recovery”. Instead, it has been stagnation to the down side, with 94.5 million people in the US no longer in the labor force. The reported unemployment rate is 5.1. That is an outright lie and deception. Eric Blair, aka, George Orwell said that telling truth in an Age of Deception is a revolutionary act. We live in an age of lies and deception. The Modus Operandi of the present economic system is lies and deception. US power will persist as long as the Thunder Bolt of Zeus has juice. How long will it last? Nobody knows. The US will do everything possible, including war, to maintain it. However, it will be the rest of the world that will determine the longevity of the dollar. The Zeus of antiquity and his thunder bolts are no more.
