Neo Cold War… Wouldn’t they just love that great fear to return? Rabid military budgets, ghosts of original McCarthyism presented as protection against terrorism, tighter controls on the public ‘for our own good’. All while the elites traverse the world without hindrance, for they will know that the spectre of war is nothing but that.
These days, nobody makes war unless there is a profit to be made. Truth, justice, humanitarian care, it’s all secondary to the wealth to be had or retained.
Fear stops people thinking better than hatred. Combine the two, give the masses something to hate and fear. That should stop them wondering where all the money goes.
Add this to the climate crisis, impending food shortages and fresh water scarcity…
There’s a profit to be made when wealth becomes the new natural selection.
