The United States is not only bankrupt ... it is totally corrupt!
It is well known among economists that the major disasters of over-production of the Great Depression of 1929 in Europe could have been avoided if only the US State would have printed more paper money en masse and would have thrown it onto the world market for global circulation.
However, at different stages of capital accumulation different problems result, and in globalization, this panacea will not work, simply because imperialist corporatism in its sterility is already declining pretty fast..
Because of the organic composition of capital ... that is of the precarious relation between living physical and intellectual labor forces and their "dead" non-consuming tools ... the machines and computers that are necessary for world production, the existence of the current gigantic products on the world market, and the reigning problems of consumption, are causing an unprecedented social contradiction that cannot be resolved within the current world order any more.
The world system spells doom, it has to show its real "democratic" grimace: self-destruction, genocidal, fascist world wars.
Itself faced with extinction, like a ferocious wild beast, fatally wounded, historically already in death pangs, the Bush administration is becoming more and more brutal, more fascist, as it faces its inexorable demise. What it fears most is the truth, the emancipatory truth on the galactic horizon, the Latin American ALBA of President Chavez of Venezuela, that is, real, true human creation and creativity.
Centuries ago while Europe was still entering the Dark Ages, celebrating the Thousand Year Wars and the Inquisition, the Arab philosophic forefathers of the contemporary Iranian Ayatollahs, whose names were deliberately Latinized, Avicenna and Averroes, kept the emancipatory flames of human emancipation burning in the heart of Africa and Asia.
Long before the Renaissance, before the Illustration, before the triumph of capitalism, they had already discovered and preserved natura naturans and natura naturata.
This is what we defend at this moment in Iran and Venezuela!
In globalization, the situation has changed drastically, such pain-killers like printing bank notes will not function anymore.
The latter do not consume and hence produce no surplus value, no profits. Furthermore, only about 2% of the total workers on a global scale, mainly the labor intelligentsia, produce the lion's share of expensive goods like arms of mass destruction, sophisticated military hard- and soft- wares, space ships, satellites, invisible atomic submarines or scramjets.
The products of these intellectual slaves cannot be consumed by themselves, that is, they cannot realize capital or profits.
Furthermore, in and for themselves, all alone, computers and machines do not produce capitalist profits. The situation has become absurd, instead of accumulating capital, the huge corporations are now destroying surplus value and profits, that is, the capitalists are committing suicide, and therewith will destroy labor and the laborers on a world scale.
Yet the North American conservative think-tanks in total despair still think that they could use obsolete methods to halt the inexorable downfall of the American Empire. Because its economic collapse is imminent within the next decades, according to some sources there already exists orders to print US$2 trillion to try to brake the coming disaster, this time again caused by massive capitalist over-production.
... the creating nature and created nature, fertile Mother nature ... for mankind.
In fact, even US Comptroller General David Walker confirmed this coming Armageddon.
Currently, not only President Chavez is going "cool," is going "Swiss" towards where the euro still flourishes, even Bush is becoming "neutral," is grazing on the green pastures of the majestic Alps. In the USA soon no taxes will be necessary anymore, a $27.5 trillion for Americans is being arranged in Swiss Banks.
Wake up, America, things are changing pretty fast, are moving towards the oriental horizons.
US Defense Minister Donald Rumsfeld accuses the government of President Chavez of undemocratic vices, fraud, corruption, and "over-spending," because he wants to renew his obsolete arms, also of wasting precious oil money on his neighbors.
What he does not tell the world is about the gigantic fraud and theft within his own ministry.
Here is a simple, single example:
On May 18, 2003, we were informed by the San Francisco Chronicle that $1 trillion of the Pentagon's military budget was missing, has evaporated just like that.
"The Department of Defense, already infamous for spending $640 for a toilet seat, once again finds itself under intense scrutiny, only this time because it couldn't account for more than a trillion dollars in financial transactions, not to mention dozens of tanks, missiles and planes. ... Though Defense has long been notorious for waste, recent government reports suggest the Pentagon's money management woes have reached astronomical proportions. A study by the Defense Department's inspector general found that the Pentagon couldn't properly account for more than a trillion dollars in monies spent. A GAO report found Defense inventory systems so lax that the U.S. Army lost track of 56 airplanes, 32 tanks, and 36 Javelin missile command launch-units."
Where did all these greenbacks go?
Till today America does not know the answer.
Only in Nigeria such huge sums of money could suddenly disappear into thin air, but Rumsfeld surely beats all of us. This is the "Empire" that wants to rule Venezuela, Latin America, the World!
However, the world wars are approximating Iran and Venezuela: Iran defiantly has rejected the demands of the United Nations, totally controlled by the United States: "Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice warned Iran on Thursday the "international community is united" in the dispute over its nuclear program, but a Tehran envoy defiantly rejected a UN call to re-impose a freeze on uranium enrichment."
Meanwhile because of this defiance against World Fascism, oil shot above $66 a barrel "toward its $70 record, after Iran rejected a UN Security Council demand that it halt uranium enrichment."
The USA is already training its reactionary paramilitary forces and death squads here in the Caribbean, thus, Iran and Venezuela, beware of imminent multiple military strikes within the next months!
As we stated repeatedly, it is not a matter of personal choice, of individual dictators or tyrants, the current world situation concerns an issue of life and death, of life or death, the fascist fading away of capitalism into oblivion and the dawning of human transmutation and transcendence on the emancipatory horizon.
