After dragging the rest of the world into seemingly endless wars in the Middle East, policy makers and the major media outlets are now happy to flood the public with guilt-inducing reports about the refugee crisis now overwhelming Europe and threatening to undermine immigration policies throughout the Western world.
Displaced from Syria and other parts of the region, hundreds of thousands of people have become desperate enough to pack into tiny boats, trains, vessels and containers and take a chance on a new life in the hands of often vicious smugglers – and the humanity of it clashes with the burden it will pose on the society.
But perhaps that is just what those in charge want – an emotionally driven story of horrors that also serves to further divide cultures, and distract from the real roots of the issue.
Author and humanitarian activist Robert J. Burrowes explains how the elite actually want more refugees, and thrive on the destruction they have created:
‘The military conflicts and political instability driving hundreds of thousands of refugees into Europe were triggered largely by U.S. and Western military interventions for regime change – specifically in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya and Syria (a regime change in-the-making).
[I]t is not us, as a collective, who is responsible for this catastrophic state of affairs. It is a relatively small number of people, each of whom is quite insane. And it is these people who drive the decisions being made in our world that have, for example, created the current refugee crisis in Europe.
These people seek power, profit and personal privilege at the expense of the rest of us. They decide to destroy countries or regions because, in their insane worldview, it ‘benefits’ them to do so. The military destruction of a region might give them the power to share in the control of a resource or market. It might make them a profit… The discourse in which these people are engaged is incredibly limited. It is always about control.
If we are not sufficiently aware, we can become preoccupied in just dealing with one or more symptoms of their insanity. Elites want more refugees partly because it helps to distract us from analysing and resisting what they are doing overall.
With all-out economic collapse threatening to destroy what is left of the middle class and leave hordes of starving masses fighting for survival, things are already looking pretty grim. The additional element of desperate refugees only worsens this, and guarantees that most will be left helpless and dependent upon government – which cannot be relied upon – when the crisis tips over into true emergency.
How close is everything to that breaking point? Many in America are already feeling the pinch, as they see their savings wiped away, jobs disappear and news reports of closed banks, ATMs and breadlines (as in Greece) threaten to come home.
Meanwhile, those who operate in the upper echelons are using their ill-gotten gains – from market manipulation to war profiteering and more – to fortify their bunkers, and finalize their elite retreats.
The Mirror Online just updated and reissued its alarming report from earlier in the year, Panicked super rich buying boltholes with private airstrips to escape if poor rise up, detailing how elite at Davos and other confabs have been quietly planning their escape from the society they helped to splinter and destroy:
Super rich hedge fund managers are buying ‘secret boltholes’ where they can hideout in the event of civil uprising against growing inequality, it has been claimed.
Nervous financiers from across the globe have begun purchasing landing strips, homes and land in areas such as New Zealand so they can flee should people rise up.
With growing inequality and riots such as those in London in 2011 and in Ferguson and other parts of the USA last year, many financial leaders fear they could become targets for public fury.
“Getaway cars, the airstrips in New Zealand and all that sort of thing, so basically a way to get off.
“If they can get off, onto another planet, some of them would.”
He added: “I think the rich are worried and they should be worried. I mean inequality, why does it matter?
Despite the clear culpability of many world leaders, both infamous and in the shadows, few if any will face the music of the consequences that have been brewing.
While the ultra wealthy hide out in well-stocked and often decadent retreats, the masses and various factions of society will be left to fight among each other.
Preppers, too, will have their stocks and holdouts, but will it be enough for what is coming?
