How globalism works just like the mafia

A very good basic introduction to globalism. Hint: its not what most people think

The next twenty years may be the most significant in modern human history.

By Chris Kanthan - October 1, 2017 | Op-Ed

Globalism is just like the mafia, but with a lot more complexity and respectability. If you have watched mob films such as The Godfather, you can understand how the world works. For example, in Godfather II, a bunch of mobsters gets together in Havana, Cuba, to celebrate Hyman Roth’s birthday. As the birthday cake is symbolically cut into pieces and distributed, Roth tells the group how Cuba will be split up amongst the guests. Extrapolate this scene to the world, you can visualize how the world works.

Corporations to central banks

The power structure of global elites is like nested Russian dolls made up of corporations. How many people realize that KFC, Taco Bell and Pizza Hut are owned by the same corporation? Or that HBO, CNN, TBS, TNT, Cartoon Network all report to the same boss? Or that whether you drink Budweiser, Corona, Stella, Busch or Michelob (and dozens of others), you end up paying one giant corporation?

Who controls these corporations? It’s not the CEO, as most people believe. The real control lies in the hands of the largest shareholders and/or the Board of Directors. The Board of Directors of all giant corporations are linked to each other by one or two degrees of separation. Some elites even sit on multiple boards at the same time. For example, Rochelle Lazarus sits on the boards of Merck, GE and Blackstone; Jon Huntsman sits on the boards of Hilton, Ford, Caterpillar and Chevron; and Timothy P. Flynn is a director at JP Morgan Chase, Wal-Mart, Alcoa and United Healthcare. Think for a moment how all these corporations would seem totally unrelated to a regular person...

The article is an opinion piece written by a guy who is anti vaccine. Why should I trust anything he says?

     My opinion piece is better because it wasn't written by an anti-vaxxer.  :smiley:
     In this day and age, it's either fascist nationalists or oligarchy globalists. Bummer. Reminds me of an old Germanic quote:
       "Whether the wolf beats the bear or the bear beats the wolf, the rabbit always loses."

       "Whether the wolf beats the bear or the bear beats the wolf, the rabbit always loses."

your maxim is not exactly true. With nationalism, sometimes the rabbit wins, dependning on what nationality he is.

As iron sharpens iron, independent nation states act as checks and balances on eachother.

Quote
Above all, globalists strive for the ability to control what people think. This is where media, entertainment and the Internet come into play. Fortunately (for them), all are corporatized, so that Facebook, Google, the mainstream media and Hollywood can all work together to form the Ministry of Truth and control what people all over the world feel, think and believe.

Well they've certainly succeeded with mayr hagar and life improvement.

Will there be a challenge to the current world order either from sovereign nations or grassroots level organizations? Or will we say, “fuggedaboutit” and meekly go along, hoping for the best?

When you have people so incapable and afraid of critical or independent thought, as continually exemplified in this forum, then...

Something is not true or not depending on who says it. Obvious to most, but apparently not to you.

You and dimbulb hagar sit there mocking opposing arguments, yet you are never able to refute them.

      I'll admit that the quote only really applies in a general sense: there have certainly been nations that have done well by their citizens.
     It's all a matter of moderation. A little bit of nationalism is a good thing, but too much of it is bad. That applies to globalism in the same way, I feel.

so you are saying the world's elite a.k.a. "mafia" told you to help them achieve global domination by teaching english in a foreign country?

globalization happens naturally at this point. people do stuff out of their own free will, and the world gets smaller and more homogenous.

i think what you are trying to say is powerful people make powerful decisions. well, that has been around forever. since like caveman times.

https://themoscowtimes.com/articles/why-russias-mafia-state-is-so-inefficient-15034

Quote
Over the past 12 years, Russia has become a full-fledged mafia state. One day, historians will chart its exact structure, but it seems clear that it consists of several large families headed by President Vladimir Putin's close associates and loyal oligarchs. Alongside them, countless crews of siloviki, bureaucrats, gangsters and affiliated businessmen work on their own, their networks varying from local to nationwide.

A friend recently had her car stolen. She reported it to the local police and soon got a call from a man, who, using the description of the car she had given the cops, demanded ransom. On the web, she discovered that it is a common racket. The usual result is that the victim loses the car and the money paid in fake ransom. She tried calling internal affairs investigators at the Moscow police, but they hung up on her.

A mafia state, by definition, cannot function efficiently. Laws are fundamental to all states, and even tyrannies rely on a set of rules. Since there are no rules in a mafia state, even minor decisions require complex deals that involve negotiating among various gangs and their conflicting interests. Agreements hold only as long as there is muscle to enforce them. The state is a tool of those who have the muscle, but a criminal can turn into a victim at a moment's notice.

Putin's been in charge since 1999. And it's going to stay that way for a lot longer. (Because of constitutionally mandated term limits he switches his position title between president and prime minister every few years.) Russia's a messed up place. I know people who have lived there.

What Makes a Source Credible?
There are many factors that make a source credible. Whenever you are looking at a source on the internet, you should check several things to verify that the information is credible. These things include the source's authority, accuracy, objectivity, currency, and coverage.

Let's look more closely at each of these criteria:

Authority
Accuracy
Objectivity
Currency
Coverage


https://sites.google.com/site/evaluatingsourcecredibility/for-students/what-makes-a-source-credible

Follow the link, read the criteria and try to check all these boxes before you choose to post your links, if you really want to bolster your argument.  Unless of course you would prefer to continue being a laughing stock, in which case you should just continue with the kind of tripe you've been posting.

It's pretty clear what criteria Trollrata uses for his posts:

Benefits to mankind
Ultimate cooperation between Glorious Motherland and depraved rest of world
Love for all people, even the decadent non-Russians
Likeability for the benefits of oligarchy
Stupendous Russianness
Hatred of anyone who does not support the truth
Ideological correctness
Tasteful representation of noble Russian culture

How can one refute the fantasies of conspiracy theorists?

Like this:

Maria Zakharova, a Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman, was on a chat show on Russian state television on Monday, talking about the US government and its lobbying activities.

"Recall these fantastic, mind-boggling photographs of how Bin Laden was hosted in the White House," she said.


http://www.bbc.com/news/world-41821923

It is definitely a fake - Bin Laden has been superimposed on a photo of Mrs Clinton meeting musician Shubhashish Mukherjee at an event in 2004.

If Russian state TV is promoting lies now, they will almost certainly continue to do so in the future.
