Venezuela is the perfect example of what happens when Capitalism takes over a country, improves it economically for the few, and then Socialism fights for the rights of the many.
This documentary illustrates the cause and effect of Capitalism and Socialism on humanity.
Both Capitalism and Socialism are right, which makes both economic systems wrong.
Capitalism is responsible for humanity’s technological and intellectual evolution that increases an individual’s life on Earth and makes it much easier to live. Without Capitalism, the world would have remained as it was before the earliest Ancient Greek cultures developed. (We’re not sure if that wouldn’t have been a good thing.) Capitalism caused the rise of Ancient Greece, then of the Great Roman Empire, and eventually of the United States of America.
Capitalism is also responsible for economic class distinctions and concentrated social power, where the few dominate and control the majority. This led to the fall of Ancient Greece, the fall of the Great Roman Empire, and will lead to the fall of the United States of America.
Socialist revolutions contributed to the fall of these great cultures. This excerpt from the documentary, given by one of the members of the documentary’s expert panel, explains this perfectly:
“[Some of Venezuela’s leaders] tried to create socialist revolution. And that led these people to destroy the whole business apparatus of the country.”
In this profound documentary, The Battle for Venezuela, a clear picture is presented of the rise and fall of Venezuela. What is happening in Venezuela is exactly what happened to the Greeks and Romans.
Why isn’t it happening to the U.S.A. … yet?
The answer can be found by following the trail of money and oil.
After 1944, the world financial markets were consolidated and controlled by ONE COUNTRY: the United States of America. ALL currency, of any kind, found in the world was backed by the United States. Countries settled their international accounts in dollars that could be converted to gold at a fixed exchange rate, which was redeemable by the U.S. government. Thus, the United States was committed to backing every dollar overseas with gold, and all other currencies were pegged to the dollar. (For those who want to research this more, research the Bretton Woods Agreement.)
The U.S.A. needed oil.
If a country wanted money, it needed to produce oil.
Japan was angry because its oil reserves were scarce. Japan went looking for oil in other countries. The other countries didn’t want Japan to take their oil, so war began. The U.S.A. sided with the other countries that didn’t want Japan to take their oil. Japan became angry with the U.S.A., because the U.S. controlled Japan’s economy and financial wealth, so it bombed Pearl Harbor.
The United States controlled both the oil and all the world’s financial markets. The U.S. thought it deserved the right because if not for U.S. intervention in Europe during World War II, all Europeans would have become citizens of Germany’s Third Reich.
The United States of America has not fallen yet, nor will it fall, UNLESS it loses control of oil and the world financial markets.
Because of foreign investment in the U.S. (foreign companies buying American companies and land), China, which has three times as many Capitalist consumers than the U.S. does, will eventually control the markets of the world. The ONLY thing that is keeping China from immediately taking over the financial markets of the world, and consolidating and controlling them, backing these markets with the Chinese Yuan, is because Americans consume more than the Chinese consume … for now.
Foreign markets provide the cheapest manufacturing hubs for many of the things that Americans consume. By 2070, the United States of America will become the cheapest manufacturing hub for the things that foreign markets consume. Americans demand jobs. They’ll get their jobs … in the manufacturing sector for exports, working for foreign-owned companies.
It is not the manufacturing powers that control the world, it is the consumer powers. There are only around 300 million American consumers. There are almost four times as many Chinese consumers. There are just as many Indian consumers (from India) as there are Chinese consumers.
All of Europe’s consumers combined with U.S. consumers are not as many as China’s or India’s.
If not for American and European military strength, the fall of the United States and Europe would occur much sooner than 2070. But it isn’t going to be China or India that takes down the U.S.
Terrorists groups don’t have a problem, yet, with China or India. Terrorists groups hate America.
Before 2070, these terrorist groups, that hate America, will have access to crude, but still nuclear, weapons.
We didn’t learn a thing from the rise and fall of the Greek and Roman Empires.
There’s only one solution that will save this world:
Bringing Capitalism and Socialism together properly to serve all of humanity.
There’s only one place upon Earth where one can find out how to do this properly:
The Humanity Party®
If the United States would embrace and incorporate THumP®’s proposals into government, it wouldn’t fall.
Until it falls, Americans need to keep using their anti-depressants and opioids to escape from or disconnect from what is happening all around them in the world.
Venezuela is a strong warning of what is coming to America as it begins to fall.
