Realpolitik is politics based on practical and material factors rather than on theoretical or ethical objectives. Power politics prioritizes national self-interest over the interests of other nations or the international community, and thus may include threatening one another with military, economic or political aggression to protect one nation's own interests. The United States is a prime example of this. Influential globalist and US foreign policy adviser Henry Kissinger said thatAmerica has no permanent friends or enemies, only interests.Geopolitics is essential for understanding international affairs and conflicts. Nicholas J. Spykman wrote thatGeography is the most fundamental factor in foreign policy because it is the most permanent.The place on earth explains a lot about why the power elite are there. We live in an extremely materialistic world led by the United States whose power elite need the earth's resources to make profit and gain power. Kissinger, also involved in the Trilateral Commission, the Council on Foreign Relations and the Bilderberg Group, once said thatPower is the ultimate aphrodisiac.
Whatever may be done to guard against interruptions of supply and to develop domestic alternatives, the U.S. economy will require large and increasing amounts of minerals from abroad, especially from less developed countries. That fact gives the U.S. enhanced interest in the political, economic, and social stability of the supplying countries. Wherever a lessening of population pressures through reduced birth rates can increase the prospects for such stability, population policy becomes relevant to resource supplies and to the economic interests of the United States.
In the picture above the developed western world is depicted in blue, the undeveloped world in orange. Historically the power elite of the imperial western world became rich from plundering the rest of the world's wealth. They still do so today as part of their globalization. The western world is constantly meddling with the affairs of, and even waging wars in, the lesser developed world for profit.
Even during WW2, Roosevelt and Churchill had been eyeing the growing oil reserves of the Middle East. On August 8, 1944, the Anglo-American Petroleum Agreement was signed, dividing Middle Eastern oil between the US and the UK. Roosevelt said, "Persian oil... is yours. We share the oil of Iraq and Kuwait. As for Saudi Arabian oil, it's ours." However this arrangement did not include the people of the countries concerned.
Especially since the Industrial Revolution and the rise of materialism the earth's resources and energy security play a defining role in world politics. It is no secret thatUS politics and oil enjoy a controversially close relationship.Robert D. Kaplan said thatEvery international order in early modern and modern history is based on an energy resource.* Ever wondered why Russia, China, Venezuela, Iraq, Iran, Libya, and other often bordering countries are the focus of the western elite? One way is to simply take a look at the map of proven oil reserves...
Oil has been the world's leading source of energy since the mid-1950s. With around 6% of the world's population, the US consumes about 22% of global total oil consumption *. Synthetic plastics are derived from crude oil, natural gas or coal. Pharmaceuticals are made with byproducts of petroleum *. So oil and other resources are of extreme importance to capitalist nations and their industries.
This cartoon depicts John D. Rockefeller's Standard Oil company by which he aimed to get a monopoly. The Rockefeller family is one of the richest families on earth. Big Oil is the western oil cartel which dominated global oil extraction and sales until OPEC came into existence in 1960. OPEC is the second oil cartel formed by exporting countries like Saudi Arabia, China, Russia, Brazil, Iran and Venezuela in the 1960s. Not surprisingly many countries involved in OPEC are under attack by the Anglo-American power elite. The 1973 oil crisis and the 1979 oil crisis made clear how important oil is in this materialistic world run by the power elite. In January 1980 US president Jimmy Carter speeched:Let our position be absolutely clear: An attempt by any outside force to gain control of the Persian Gulf region will be regarded as an assault on the vital interests of the United States of America, and such an assault will be repelled by any means necessary, including military force.The Carter Doctrine simply comes down to the self-given authorization for plundering other nation's resources.
The 1973 oil crisis further fixed the value of the dollar as a result of this oil shock, bringing Saudi Arabia and the OPEC countries to make a secret agreement with Washington, the main architect being President Nixon’s legendary Secretary of State Mr. Henry Kissinger. This agreement provided that in exchange for Washington’s political and military protection, the OPEC countries would be required to sell oil only in dollars.
Again the name Henry Kissinger pops up. He is one of the key architects of the Anglo-American Empire and the coming world government. The Saudi royal family is one of the world's richest families. They run a cruel inhumane dictatorship supported by the west. Examples of very lucrative but deadly and destructive wars related to resources were the Iran-Iraq War, the Gulf War, the Iraq War, the military intervention in Libya, etcetera. It definitely is all about power, not about love. All those aggressive wars require a large army. Not surprisingly, the U.S. military is the largest institutional consumer of oil in the world *.
In 2015 US president Barack Obama saidWe've got to have the strongest military in the world, and we occasionally have to twist the arms of countries that wouldn't do what we need them to do if it weren't for the various economic or diplomatic or, in some cases, military leverage that we had*. With his Nobel Peace Prize pinned to his suit he admitted that the United States makes use of regime change to further the imperialistic agenda of the Anglo-American Empire. Good examples of recent regime changes are Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, and Ukraine. See also War on Drugs and Terrorism. Under Barack Obama regime change remained a US foreign policy, drone strikes became common practice *, the intelligence and espionage machine flourished globally, and his administration became known as themost secretive presidency in American history*. The goal of regime change is the creation of puppet states which act in favor of the power elite responsible for the regime change. Stephen Kinzer said that regime changehas been an integral part of U.S. foreign policy for more than one hundred years. Starting with the toppling of the Hawaiian monarchy in 1893, the United States has not hesitated to overthrow governments that stood in the way of its political and economic goals.
Before the United States was labeled theland of the freethe imperialists exterminated the indigenous American indians. The Mexican–American War from 1846, after the 1845 U.S. annexation of Texas, is a good example of an early territorial war in which its power elite took large parts of Mexico. The U.S. has a long history of involvement in Latin America *. That imperial policy essentially always stayed the same. See for example Nicolas J.S. Davies' article 35 Countries Where the U.S. Has Supported Fascists, Drug Lords and Terrorists * which mentions a few of those actions. William Blum made a list as well, see Overthrowing other people's governments: The Master List * or his book Killing Hope: U.S. Military and CIA Interventions Since World War II.
Henry Kissinger urged President Richard Nixon to overthrow the democratically elected Allende government in Chile because his "'model' effect can be insidious," ... The posted records spotlight Kissinger's role as the principal policy architect of U.S. efforts to oust the Chilean leader, and assist in the consolidation of the Pinochet dictatorship in Chile.
In the photo we see Henry Kissinger again with Chilean Dictator Augusto Pinochet, responsables of the horrible coup to Salvador Allende which killed more than 3,000 people, jailed and tortured around 38,000 others, and forced tens of thousands into exile *. In 2009 Kissinger said the following in an interview about Iran...
I think regime change can be supported by the United States, or can be wished for by the United States. I think when the United States attempts regime change by its own actions and becomes a principle party to the regime change, that it has usually backfired. I am sure that Americans would favor the emergence from the present situation of a truly popularly based government, and it is very appropriate for the President to make clear that that is what he favors. Now, if it turns out that it is not possible for a government to emerge in Iran that can deal with itself as a nation rather than as a cause, then we have a different situation. Then we may conclude that we must work for regime change in Iran from the outside.
Henry Kissinger was one of the key architects of the coming World Government of the globalist elite. Of course Iran is one of the few countries left in the world whose power elite do not do as the power elite of the Anglo-American Empire want them to do. In 1973 Henry Kissinger was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize related to the Vietnam War. Around 1971 Kissinger opposed the release of the Pentagon Papers which documented Vietnam war crimes committed by the United States. In his memoirs he wrote thatthe massive hemorrhage of state secrets was bound to raise doubts about our reliability in the minds of other governments, friend or foe, and indeed about the stability of our political system.* The Nobel Peace Prize is one of the many decorations the western power elite give each other in order to stick feathers up each other's asses and make the ignorant sheeple think the best of them.
Rahm Emanuel had an advisory role for several presidents and high officials in the US government. In 2008 he saidYou never want a serious crisis to go to waste. And what I mean by that is that is an opportunity to do things you think you could not do befor. ... The good news ... the problems are big enough that they lend themselves to ideas from both parties for the solution.The principle to use a crisis as an opportunity to one's benefit is nothing new. The power elite know all about it. It's simple and it's very effective. A known saying goesthe time to buy is when there's blood in the streets.For example the Rothschild family, one of the richest and most powerful families ever, made a fortune buying in the panic that followed the Battle of Waterloo against Napoleon. This principle has been used throughout history and is still used today.
Hegelian dialectic is best explained as thesis → antithesis → synthesis or problem → reaction → solution. The power elite want more power. So when there's a crisis the power elite will use that crisis to draw more power from the people to themselves. In order to achieve their desired power shift they propose an extreme solution. That extreme solution is then usually compensated by some opposition after which a middle ground is achieved resulting in a significant power shift nevertheless. This brings us to the principle that power-hungry elite will even go so far as to create crises or to let crises happen eventhough they could prevent them. A good example are the 9/11 Attacks which resulted in the enactment of the Patriot Act and the start of an endless war on terror which of course benefited the Anglo-American power elite. Those 9/11 Attacks are also a good example of a so-called false flag. A recent example is the highly exaggerated COVID-19 crisis leading to lockdowns, the degrading of people's constitutional rights and the centralization of power in globalist organizations. A crisis calls for crisis management. A global crisis calls for global crisis management. The results are growing economic inequality and a major power shift in favor of the power elite. When asked in an interview in 1999 what he foresaw for the future professor Anthony Sutton answered:Chaos, confusion and ultimately a battle between the individual and the State.* Prophetic.
