2014: Good Year for a Great War? -- Graham Allison, National Commentary

Precisely a hundred years ago today, the richest man in the world sent New Year’s greetings to a thousand of the most influential leaders in the U.S. and Europe announcing: mission accomplished. “International Peace,” he proclaimed, “is to prevail through the Great Powers agreeing to settle their disputes by International Law, the pen thus proving mightier than the sword.”

Having immigrated to the US penniless, created the steel industry as a pillar of America's rise to preeminence, and become fabulously wealthy in the process, Andrew Carnegie had the confidence of a man who had achieved the impossible. When he turned from making money to spending it for public purposes, his goals were universal literacy at home (funding public libraries in cities and towns across America), and perpetual peace abroad, starting with the great powers of Europe and the US.

Why is Graham Allison lamenting the DEATH of the euro-centric white-supremacist colonial apartheid MONARCHIES?

By 1918, the Kaiser [- German Monarchy -] was gone, the Austro-Hungarian Empire [- Black Forest Monarchy -] dissolved, the Tsar [- Russian Monarchy -] overthrown by the Bolsheviks, France [- French Colonial Monarchy -] bled for a generation, and England [- British Colonial Monarchy -] shorn of the flower of its youth and treasure.

Monarchies were based on Sovereign Gold Standards that was destroyed by the U.S. Federal Reserve which was based on PAPER MONEY created around the same time frame 1914-1918. Though it was not until Nixon 1970s that Gold Standard was delinked from economy creating petro-dollar in the periphery and deregulated financial instruments in the core that went full steam later when Carter-Reagan gave rise to financial promiscuity that opened up the bubble-economy forever and delinked any structural foundations of economics to pure mass-hysteria and financial psychosis of internal-trading market behavior.

Fast Forward to 2010s- That's why the Standards & Poor downgraded U.S. for the first time since 1914 following the psycho-graphic profiling of the 1% and the 23% who admire them collectively called "THE APATHETIC MATERIALISTS" who would gladly throw their own kind and everyone else into the pits of War and Hades if they can buy yet another Tiffany's Diamond Necklace or a Super-Yacht or stash away multi-generational mafioso-wealth in South Dakota.

Time has arrived to destroy the Financial Monarchy just as the other types of Monarchy were primed for destruction in the 1910s.

Graham Allison fails to FOLLOW THE MONEY and has "circumcised" the economic and resource constraints in his analysis to his own detriment within "8-days" of thinking about the thesis popularized by Oxford/Brookings Margaret MacMillan. And like a faithful unquestioning orthodox Israeli mother (can you believe the entire nation-state has never questioned the Rabbinical Law with zero constitutional enforcement in its entire history and is now before their Supreme Court - chopping and butchering the penis of a cute newborn boy, I mean!), Margaret MacMillan has also "circumcised" the equation of money and monarchy and has "anal-yzed" World War.

Maybe Freud can help why Mankind wants Mutilation and Oedipal-Sex with Mother Earth. Why Mankind is Obsessed about it... For a Few Dollars More?
