Nations and economies are different. Nations exist for a particular people’s general welfare. That general welfare includes their spiritual, psychological, financial and material wealth. Nations recognize their people as intrinsically valuable.
Economies, on the other hand, only recognize their people as potentially profitable. Nations see us as “people”. Economies see us as “human resources”.
Economies differ from nations, first, because economies do not recognize national borders.
Second, economies exist for profits of a few rather than the general welfare of the majority of people of a particular nation.
Third, while nations are ultimately about lives, economies are only about money. Economies are like farms where all the people are deemed to be animals and livestock. As an animal of the economy, you’ll be given shelter in the barn, food to eat, and even medical care so long as you generate a profit for the economy and/or its “farmers”. But as soon as the economy/farmer detects that you’ve become unprofitable, your access to food, shelter and medical care will be curtailed and you’ll be shipped off to the nearest slaughtering house to squeeze the last few dollars of profits out of your carcass.
Obamacare created death panels that would decide who would receive medical care and who (without medical care) would be allowed to die. What were the death panels intended to do other than decide who were still (or potentially) profitable and who were not?
Death panels are not about right and wrong—or even life and death. They’re about profit and loss. In the North American Union (a continental economy) or the New World Order (a global economy), it’s not about whether you deserve to live or die—it’s not about whether you have a right to live—it’s about whether you can still give more “milk” than the cost of your food, shelter and medical care.
Death panels that would be morally reprehensible in a nation, are logical and inevitable in economies.
Much the same could be said of the police state. Rights that might be cherished and honored in a nation, might be viewed with contempt as impediments in an economy.
Nations and economies have two entirely different sets of values. In a nation, you might have some rights. In an economy, you would only have duties to generate a profit for your corporate government and/or the special interests it represents.
If you consent (or even assent) to live in an economy rather than a nation, you will be subjected to a system of values wherein you will only be valued according to your ability to generate profits for others. When you lose your ability or willingness to generate profits for others, you’ll become disposable and almost certainly be disposed of.
We’ve all heard Bill Clinton’s election mantra: “It’s the economy, stupid!”
I wonder if Americans will ever hear another presidential candidate shout that: “It’s the nation, stupid!”
