Question of the Day..

WHY IS THE U.S. LINKING ITS ECONOMY TO G20 COUNTRIES?

 

Although the idea is in violation and contrast to the concept of world trade, ..the “rank and file” folks in America, (at least in my humble opinion,) ..should ponder removing their heads from their armpits, ..circling the wagons, ..and defend ‘our” Constitution before the few rights and real property that we, “We the People,” ..still have are ingested by the Rothschilds via the Federal Reserve.

I totally understand that as a Democrat, or as a Republican, Americans have been divided by ideology.

 

According to Askville by Amazon; “The phrase, and/or cliché “Divide and Conquer,” is attributed to Philip the second, King of Macedon. (382 – 336 BC), describing his policy towards the Greek city-states.

In politics, divide and rule (also known as divide and conquer) is referring to a strategy of gaining and maintaining power based on the fact that many smaller opponents are easier to manage than one larger one.

The strategy includes:
* breaking up power alliances into smaller chunks that are easier to subdue/manage
* preventing small power groups from linking up and becoming more powerful

Effective use of this technique allows those with limited power to control those who collectively would have had a lot more influence. (Source, latinphrases.info)

Divide and rule…

In politics and sociology, divide and rule (derived from Latin: divide et impera) (also known as divide and conquer) is a combination of political, military and economic strategy of gaining and maintaining power by breaking up larger concentrations of power into chunks that individually have less power than the one implementing the strategy.

The concept refers to a strategy that breaks up existing power structures and prevents smaller power groups from linking up.

The maxims “divide et impera” and “divide ut regnes” were utilised by the Roman ruler Caesar and the French emperor Napoleon.

There is the example of Gabinius parting the Jewish nation into five conventions, reported by Flavius Josephus in Book I, 169-170 of The Wars of the Jews (De bello Judaico).

Strabo also reports in Geography, 8.7.3 that the Achaean League was gradually dissolved under the Roman possession of the whole of Macedonia, owing to them not dealing with the several states in the same way, but wishing to preserve some and to destroy others.

In modern times, Traiano Boccalini cites “divide et impera” in La bilancia politica, 1,136 and 2,225 as a common principle in politics.

The use of this technique is meant to empower the sovereign to control subjects, populations, or factions of different interests, who collectively might be able to oppose his rule.

Machiavelli identifies a similar application to military strategy, advising in Book VI of The Art of War (Dell’arte della guerra), that a Captain should endeavor with every art to divide the forces of the enemy, either by making him suspicious of his men in whom he trusted, or by giving him cause that he has to separate his forces, and, because of this, become weaker.

The strategy of division and rule has been attributed to sovereigns ranging from Louis XI to the Habsburgs.

Edward Coke denounces it in Chapter I of the Fourth Part of the Institutes, reporting that when it was demanded by the Lords and Commons what might be a principal motive for them to have good success in Parliament, it was answered: “Eritis insuperabiles, si fueritis inseparabiles.

Explosum est illud diverbium: Divide, & impera, cum radix & vertex imperii in obedientium consensus rata sunt.” [You would be insuperable if you were inseparable.

This proverb, Divide and rule, has been rejected, since the root and the summit of authority are confirmed by the consent of the subjects.

On the other hand, in a minor variation, Sir Francis Bacon wrote the phrase “separa et impera” in a letter to James I of 15 February 1615.

James Madison made this recommendation in a letter to Thomas Jefferson of 24 October 1787, which summarized the thesis of The Federalist #10:

“Divide et impera, the reprobated axiom of tyranny, is under certain qualifications, the only policy, by which a republic can be administered on just principles.”

In Perpetual Peace: A Philosophical Sketch by Immanuel Kant (1795), Appendix one, Divide et impera is the third of three political maxims, the others being Fac et excusa and Si fecisti, nega.

Elements of this technique involve:

  • creating or encouraging divisions among the subjects in order to prevent alliances that could challenge the sovereign
  • aiding and promoting those who are willing to cooperate with the sovereign
  • fostering distrust and enmity between local rulers
  • encouraging meaningless expenditures that reduce the capability for political and military spending

Historically this strategy was used in many different ways by empires seeking to expand their territories.

The concept is also mentioned as a strategy for market action in economics to get the most out of the players in a competitive market.

Africa…

The divide and conquer strategy was used by foreign countries in Africa during the colonial and post-colonial period.

  • Germany and Belgium ruled Rwanda and Burundi in a colonial capacity. Germany used the strategy of divide and conquer by placing members of the Tutsi minority in positions of power. When Belgium took over colonial rule in 1916, the Tutsi and Hutu groups were rearranged according to race instead of occupation. Belgium defined “Tutsi” as anyone with more than ten cows or a long nose, while “Hutu” meant someone with less than ten cows and a broad nose.
  • The socioeconomic divide between Tutsis and Hutus continued after independence and was a major factor in the Rwandan Genocide.
  • The British rule of Sudan restricted access between the north and south regions of the country. The British did not place much emphasis on the development and governance of Southern Sudan. This disparity between north and south regions of Sudan led to the First and Second Sudanese Civil Wars.
  • During British rule of Nigeria from 1900 to 1960, different regions were frequently reclassified for administrative purposes. The conflict between the Igbo and Hausa made it easier for the British to consolidate their power in the region. Regional, ethnic, and religious splits remain a barrier to uniting Nigeria.

Europe…

  • Romans entered Macedonia from the south and defeated King Perseus of Macedon in the battle of Pydna in 168 BC. Macedonia was then divided into four republics that were heavily restricted from relations with one another and other Hellenic states. There was a ruthless purge, with allegedly anti-Roman citizens being denounced by their compatriots and deported in large numbers.
  • Following the October revolution, the Bolsheviks engaged at various times in alliances with the Left Socialist-Revolutionaries, certain anarchists, and various non-Russian ethnic nationalist groups, against the White movement, Right Socialist-Revolutionaries, and other anarchist and ethnic nationalist groups. This was done to establish the Communist Party of the Soviet Union (the Bolshevik party) as the sole legal party in the Soviet Union. Similar shifting alliances were played out amongst various dissident factions within the CPSU, such as the Workers Opposition and Left Communists, with Joseph Stalin and his supporters gaining absolute power within the party by the mid-1920s.
  • The Salami strategy of Hungarian Communist leader, Mátyás Rákosi.
  • Alliances with various parties played a role in the Nazi Machtergreifung and Gleichschaltung, the seizure and consolidation of total power by the National Socialist German Workers Party. The Enabling Act, which banned the Communist and Social Democratic parties, was supported by the Nazis’ coalition partner, the German National People’s Party, as well as by the Centre Party. Several months later, all political parties in Germany were banned except for the NSDAP.

Indian subcontinent…

The strategy of “Divide and Rule” was employed by most imperial powers in Indian subcontinent. The British and French set the Indian states against each other, both as a means of undermining each other’s influence and consolidating their authority.

In his historical survey of purported anti-Jewish strategies utilized by the Catholic Church Constantine’s Sword, James P. Carroll writes,..

Typically, imperial powers depend on the inability of oppressed local populations to muster a unified resistance, and the most successful occupiers are skilled at exploiting the differences among the occupied. Certainly that was the story of the British Empire’s success, and its legacy of nurtured local hatreds can be seen wherever the Union Flag flew, from Muslim-Hindu hatred in Pakistan and India, to Catholic-Protestant hatred in Ireland, to, yes, Jew-Arab, hatred in modern Israel.

Ancient Rome was as good at encouraging internecine resentments among the occupied as Britain ever was. (Source, Wikipedia).

Question: Any Questions?

If not, regardless of your political affiliation, it is most likely too late for you.

However, for those of you who have questions? I am doing my best to ferret out as much information concerning the corruption in “our” government, and in the world that affects you.

The information that I endeavor to provide, (particularly if you’re a young person in the workforce) is more important to most of you that it is to me.

My day has come and gone, my future is short, ..albeit not dismissed. I’ve had a good life, as other than the two years that I spent in the United States Army, I have been the master of my domain.

As small and insignificant as my domain may have been by Rothschild or Rockefeller standards, it was large enough for me. Especially when aided in fortified by an imagination that could be if I so desired, transformed into reality since I was fortunate enough to be born in America.

Land of the free and home of the brave, don’t let (them) take it away from you.

Befitting definition of “THEM”; “Anyone and everyone who places more importance upon themselves, wealth, and power than their family, their country and God.”

Think about it, I’ll be back tomorrow
