The Green New Deal & The End of National Supremacy
By Marcus Perriello | Our Voice Contributor
There’s no debating it anymore – Climate Change is real. We’re experiencing it, day in and day out. The scientific community almost unanimously concluded that we have little more than a decade to get our act together, or else we face extinction. But we still have many in the Business community who are so deeply entrenched in their current business model and means of production that they can’t see outside their own bubble, and it could end up costing humanity its very existence.
The Green New Deal is thus far a mere outline of what we need to do in order to avert total Armageddon, and pundits on both sides of the aisle are attempting to rip into it like toilet paper. They will soon be faced with the reality that their ignorance, and deliberate cooperation with the power structure, is going to mean the end of everything they hold dear.
Why do they willingly ignore reality?
One word: MONEY!
Here’s where Resolution H2O and the Green New Deal are in most respects one in the same. What the Hydrodollar system can do is act as the catalyst for the Green New Deal, because once the monetary system that makes the world go round is dependent on the health and prosperity of the environment, the entire premise of the current system that props up the Status Quo is completely inverted and the incentive package is now heading in the opposite direction.
There’s a big reason why the United States can litter its currency all over the world and why other national currencies are not nearly as viable on the world stage: Oil, and Debt. These are the two aspects of the U.S. monetary system that determine its intrinsic state. Back in 1971, Richard Nixon took the U.S. off the Gold Standard and did a deal with the monarch of Saudi Arabia, agreeing to let the U.S. Dollar be valued against the output of the global oil market. At the same time, the U.S. Dollar was little more than a transfer of Debt, by conventional economic and monetary wisdom. This switch from the Gold Standard to the Oil Standard is what led to limitless inflation, gas shortages, lower employment, and further consolidation of economic power from companies and industries more directly connected to the source of the problem.
Due to the monetary system’s Debt-Based infrastructure, every dollar printed and put into circulation was additional debt that the government had to pay back to the banks through higher taxes on the American public. This further solidified Wall Street’s power grab over Washington and led to the loss of basic freedoms and rights that most people by that time had been taking for granted. In addition to Corporate America’s seizing of political and economic power, even with the massive deregulation that started under the Reagan Administration, Wall Street noticed that opportunity was running dry in America. Only so much land and so many resources to exploit for profit, on top of average working Americans demanding higher and higher pay to keep up with inflation and the cost of living.
So they began the practice of Outsourcing. This became most noticeable to the public during the Clinton Administration with the signing of NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement), where the United States would allow its companies to outsource jobs to Canada and Mexico for cheaper labor under the guise of lower prices for the consumer. What this really achieved was an unprecedented increase in CEO pay and shareholder value, leaving workers with less income to work with. Prices began to rise, especially in the housing market – which was chiefly due to Lewis Rennari’s Mortgage Backed Security invention. This new trading medium was another huge factor in the Big Banks on Wall Street garnering more economic and political power. A well-known moment in history occurred at this point in 2008. The inevitable crash happened, and the house of cards that was built on a bed of quicksand all came crashing down.
But before that, there was the event that changed the world for the worse: September 11, 2001. For most in the United States and around the world, it was the worst tragedy of the modern era. But for a few select others, it was an even greater opportunity. An opportunity to make more money than they had every dreamed was possible. Most famously (or infamously), former Vice President Dick Cheney, formerly the CEO of Halliburton, saw this event as a way into oil fields that were virtually untapped by U.S. companies. This is where the true colors of the “Evil Empire” began to emerge. Since that fateful day, the United States has been engaging in endless and illegal wars across the globe under the guise of “Fighting for Freedom.” The mass hysteria caused by the events of 9/11 made it easy for Cheney and other corporate tyrants of the Military Industrial Complex to use their economic and political clout to influence the public to support invading Iraq; a country that did not attack the United States and was no real threat to them. The superficial veil cast over their true intentions was that of the scary, brown, bearded Muslim America-haters who were always conspiring against the United States and must be hunted down and terminated with extreme prejudice. At the time, this was an easy pill to swallow and the American public hardly moved a muscle in protest, save for a small portion of the public who were seen as fringe conspiracy theorists and were subject to vicious smears and discrediting from The Establishment.
But even after Osama Bin Laden got his on May 1, 2011, the Military Industrial Complex still wanted more war. Their profits had reach record-breaking levels and enough was just not enough. It wasn’t until 2015, when a virtually-unknown senator from Vermont named Bernie Sanders emerged on the national stage as a Democratic Presidential candidate, that the American public began to take notice of what was really going on behind the scenes. Ever since then, Bernie Sanders has risen to political superstardom. He is standing for and fighting for an agenda that the vast majority of Americans, and the rest of the world, agrees with. Out of the spark that lit that flame came the likes of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Ro Khanna, Ayanna Pressley, Rashida Tlaib, and an entire national movement to change the entire system in the United States. The Establishment recognizes this threat to their unprecedented wealth and power and they continue to use all their resources to try and stop this movement before their agenda becomes a reality. At this point, it is clear that the government and the economic system that was supposed to serve the people has been thoroughly corrupted and disconnected from the people who depend on it.
We are still in the early stages of what is guaranteed to be a long and drawn-out battle of wills between the Rich and Powerful and the rest of humanity. But one thing is certain: Without a healthy and thriving planet that can provide us with the natural resources we need to survive, we will go extinct. This is why the Green New Deal is the most important issue (arguably) in human history. But since The Establishment and so many people around the world still have this induced stigma of following a system that is ultimately destructive and self-defeating, there has to be a way to steer humanity in the proper direction.
This is what Resolution H2O is all about: Acting as a guiding hand to lead humanity off the path to destruction and into a better future. When the monetary system is changed to be propped up by water and the formula is represented by percentage rather than exact metrics, you have now expanded your ability to create money on an as-needed basis, as well as forced the dictation of intrinsic value out of the hands of people and into the hands of Nature. This is how the Hydrodollar system can actually be the one thing that perpetuates the Green New Deal. After all, with a monetary system like this, the value of the system itself is dependent on our implementing the Green New Deal.
It is also a symbol of the need for international cooperation and unity. This system goes beyond national borders and uses the entire planet’s water table as its support tool. This makes the currency intrinsically universal, so it doesn’t matter what country you’re in, the value of the dollar is the exact same as it would be anywhere else. As a result, any mission to demonstrate national supremacy or expand an Empire becomes redundant because the implementation of this system makes all countries recognize their interdependence on one another. This side-effect of the Hydrodollar eliminates the rationale for the building of empires and the exploitation of humanity and our resources.
Money is reduced to what it truly is: A tool. It is a tool that is used to conduct trade without resorting to trade ledgers or unmanageable bartering, and nothing more. And due to the fluid and flexible nature of this system, money can be created without risk of debt or inflation, rendering the current power over society of Big Banks and Big Business irrelevant. What we end up with is a global currency system and a perpetuating system of economics that is 100% stable, 100% sustainable, and a means by which we can finally move humanity forward in a harmonious and productive fashion.
