I like how middle class white guys who make this shit think they know everything about living under some kind of hellish tyranny out of some dystopian fantasy novel because OMG WE HAVE TO PAY TAXES AND OBEY CIVIL LAWS AND JEWS EXIST (yes, you know that's where this is going just by the language) when they've probably barely set foot out of their fucking video game/computer/entertainment center mancave enough to even stub their fucking toe while downing pounds of freely available food and soda.
Meanwhile, the world has places in continual upheaval and civil strife and genocide on scales that often baffle the imagination. These patrio-tards would shit themselves into oblivion in 10 seconds in places like these.
They're actually right in thinking that the world is run by a cabal of rich elitists who want to stamp out nationalism to ease the process of doing business. That's the nature of globalism, i.e. global capitalism. Where they go wrong is believing it's a closely guarded secret or that it has anything to do with a Renaissance-era secret society.
I don't think globalism is an accurate understanding. Sure the bourgeois want to remove barriers to trade so that monopolies can overtake smaller domestic industries that are protected by tariffs and regulations, but it doesn't mean that there isn't a necessity for the state. In fact, I think the opposite. It's more so that the capital in the developed countries is trying to project itself into investments abroad, and this often requires the diplomatic deregulation of protections or military intervention. As a result we have seen an increased power in the repressive arm of the state to promote the global hegemony of their drive for investments, as well as a greater shift to policing the antagonism of the working class domestically. It's more so that regulation is not as necessary at this point of capitalism because monopolies and multinationals are already stable and large enough to ensure their own continuation, and don't need to form cartels or promote government protections.
"These patrio-tards would shit themselves into oblivion in 10 seconds in places like these."
That is pretty much the case. Ironically, that is where their angst is coming from. At the core of this reflex is a conquer or be conquered fixation. It is the essence of white mythology and historical hegemony. They KNOW on some level that their whiteness is responsible for the perpetration of suffering, but to admit it would require a complete reappraisal of everything they know and understand in the world to be true, and that's too much for most people to handle.
Meanwhile in the 22nd century...

I should suck it up and finally watch the rest of the ten-part series. But this.. what one of my friends called the world's worst Terrence Malick production.. I feel like I should go no further. But I will. I always will.
This is here because of you. I learned about all this conspiracy garbage by watching you!

Oh, darn, well, that's not at all what I was hoping for by that title.
