The economics and the roots of war, and the war on the family

To Preserve and Protect Examining a century of men and war and the 'changing' role of women in it

Preceding Page

The Economics of War

About 60 millions people, the vast majority of them men, lost their lives during the Second World War.  The financial return to the military/industrial complex was $1 trillion (just in terms of the bills paid by governments), an enormous sum of money in those years (roughly $10 trillion in 2005 dollars), at a tidy profit that employed many and brought women into the work force, to pave the way for their "liberation" and to tighten the enslavement of men.
   The cost per life, not counting personal and property losses but just in terms of what the taxpayers gave to the military/industrial complex, works out to $16,667 per life sacrificed.  If it's any consolation, that is considerably more than Judas got for selling the life of Jesus, but then Judas didn't have the help of any large corporations to jack up stake and the price that ultimately has to be paid by the people. (Full story)

Since 1945 up to the end of the second millennium, ever since the UN brought "eternal peace" to the world, an additional 37 million people died in military actions throughout the world — almost four times more than were killed during the First World War and more than half of the number killed during the Second World War.
  Arms sales by multinational corporations with plants located in the US account for about 80 percent of the weapons sold in the international arms trade and used by all sides to kill people. Gun control in the developed nations, pushed by feminists, will hardly make a difference in that, but it provides a wonderful diversion under whose cover the arms trade thrives.  The very same corporations selling the arms fund the feminist movement.

The Roots of War

Krupp has the dubious reputation of being the armorer of kings and nations. 

Krupp wasn't alone.  Krupp merely produced a portion, not even the majority, of the weapons used to kill men (almost exclusively men, the losses in the First World War were close to 10 million).  Krupp and other members of the arms industry formed in about 1880 a munitions trust, the forerunner of today's multinationals, corporations that have no allegiance to either God, king or country.
   The majority of today's weapons are being manufactured in the US or by largely American-owned corporations who maintain a lively arms trade without which virtually no wars can be fought today.  It should not surprise anyone that the same interest groups that manufacture and sell their weapons for governments the world over make even sure that the reasons and means exists on account of and with which wars can be fought.   They ensure that the banks with which they are affiliated make the funds available to governments that those can then apply to fight their wars.  In financial circles that is called seed money.
    If all else fails, they create the conditions that will lead to war, such as funding the rise of Bolshevism and the rise of Hitler to power.  Worse yet, Standard Oil of New Jersey (later known as S.O., then ESSO, then Exxon, also the original founder and owner of the CIA, similar to Krupp who had their equivalent intelligence-gathering network in place that they, more so under Hitler than under the Kaiser, put at the disposal of the German government) played a key role in making American technology available to the Germans to enable them to manufacture motor fuels from coal and to manufacture synthetic rubber.  Moreover, without the heavy trade in vital supplies that S.O. of New Jersey provided to the Germans right up to the end of the war and of course beyond and during the reconstruction, there would have been absolutely no way the Germans could have started a war, let alone keep it going.   After all, S.O. of New Jersey kept the other side supplied as well, so as to make for a brisk demand. (See history section at this website for more details.)
   There is no shortage of manpower to do it with.  Men's lives are cheap and plentiful, a renewable resource.
   However, just as Krupp, so S.O. of New Jersey was not the only player in the game, just one of the heavyweights.  And of course, after all of the destruction was done, there was a lot of reconstruction, and even more money to be made from that.

Another "privilege" of being a man.  Just in time for another war....

Iraq Blog [Raed vanished at the end of May 2003.  I wonder why and how.]

Things on Iraqi TV today:

-yesterday the last 500 prisoners from the Iraq-Iran war were being exchanged. I can’t believe they are still doing this, ...that war ended in 1989. every Iraqi family can tell you a hundred heart br[e]aking stories about things that happen when you have thought you[r] brother/father/son is dead and he suddenly appears after 10 years.

Update 2008 05 10: "This year we passed the milestone of 3,000 deaths in Iraq, and of those, 2,938 were men, 62 were women." -- Is There Anything Good About Men?
By Roy F. Baumeister


What these thousand Iraqi and Iranian POWs (500 each) experienced so long after the Iraq-Iran war was experienced by the last 10,000 German soldiers who were permitted to return from Russian POW camps in 1955, thanks to some hard negotiating by Konrad Adenauer (Germany's first post-war chancellor), who took advantage of the Russian's strong desire to establish trade relations with the West.
   However, in the same year Adenauer also commissioned the first 101 officers of those that would be running the new West-German Armed Forces under West-Germany's commitment to NATO.  Adenauer's election boast, that without a doubt successfully exploited the Germans' weariness with war and got his Christian Democratic Union Party into power in the first democratic elections since Hitler eliminated the Weimar Republic, was no longer a great concern in 1955.  It was no longer politically expedient; otherwise he would surely still have loved to mention it: "I am proud that I never carried a rifle."
   Still, service registrations promptly began when the numbers of volunteers fell far short of the commitment to put together a new German 500,000 armed forces contingent for NATO.  Men born in 1927, the vintage that had experienced the largest losses, by far, in the war still vivid in the memory of all who had the fortune to live through it were some of the first to be called up.  The "expertise" of those men was needed, and although Germany was then prohibited from redeveloping its military aircraft industry and was reduced to buy its fighter planes (bombers were no longer permitted) from the USA, it excelled in another sector of the military/industrial complex, it designed new and better tanks and manufactured them in large numbers — exported them, too, to Israel, amongst other places.

Throughout all of the modern wars and the post-war booms, the share prices of the Nobel Corporation and its multinational subsidiaries kept rising.  The Nobel Corporation not only manufactured a major share of all of the explosives used by all sides in those wars to blow their respective citizens (mostly men) to smithereens, it also diverted attention from its major product and main purpose to a more noble side-business that it established in the year 1900.  That is the Nobel Foundation, the sponsor of the Nobel Prizes. 
   One of the categories of the Nobel Prizes is the Nobel Peace Prize.  It is interesting to read the some of the names of the Nobel-Peace-Prize laureates that give the Nobel Peace Prize a somewhat incongruous, even Orwellian meaning, amongst them:

  • Thomas Woodrow Wilson (1919), who attempted to make the world safe for democracy by bringing the USA into World War I;
  • Gustav Streseman (1926), whose uncompromising stand on the status of German territorial concessions to Poland helped pave the road to Hitler's and Stalin's invasion of Poland in 1939 and the start to World War II;
  • United Nations Children's Fund (1965), which now pursues policies that elevate the rights of the children above those of their parents and thereby helps to promote the implementation of the international agenda for the planned destruction of the family;
  • Henry A. Kissinger (1973), who intended to use food as a weapon to curb the alleged world population explosion (the world population now no longer increases and is projected to fall to somewhere between 500 million to one billion within the next 150 - 200 years), through his National Security Study Memorandum 200.  The provisions of the NSSM 200 were coordinated and launched upon the request of president Nixon in 1974.

NSSM 200 was the definitive interagency study of world population growth and its implications for United States global security, requested by President Nixon in 1974. The study was undertaken by the National Security Council, the CIA, the Defense, Agriculture and State Departments, and the Agency for International Development. Among its conclusions: "World population growth is widely recognized within the Government as a current danger of the highest magnitude calling for urgent measures.... There is a major risk of severe damage [from continued rapid population growth] to world economic, political, and ecological systems and, as these systems begin to fail, to our humanitarian values."

  • Le Duc Tho (1973), who "oversaw the Communist insurgency that began in 1956 against the South Vietnamese government"* that ultimately resulted in the defeat, and withdrawal from Vietnam, of the American forces in Vietnam. (*Source: Wikipedia);
  • Muhammad Anwar al Sadat (1978), who on "October 6, 1973, in conjunction with Hafez al-Assad of Syria, launched the Yom Kippur War, a surprise attack against the Israeli forces occupying the Sinai Peninsula and the Golan Heights in an attempt to retake the territory captured by Israel six years earlier." (Source: Wikipedia);
  • Yasser Arafat, Shimon Peres and Yitzhak Rabin (1994), organizers and leaders of the forces of the protagonists in the Palestinian War;
  • United Nations (U.N.) and Kofi Annan (2001), the organization and its then leader of one of the most wasteful and powerful organizations that ever existed; with the U.N. and Kofi Annan being heavily involved in creating a global, centralized state. (Food for Oil);
  • Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and Albert Arnold (Al) Gore Jr. (2007), both heavily involved in bringing about global income equalization of nations (by creating the motivation to transfer wealth from those who have to those in need) through the fostering of propaganda promoting the global-warming hype. (See: THE FRAUD OF GLOBAL WARMING True C02 Record Buried Under Gore, The Great Global-Warming Swindle, and Carbon Dioxide and Global Change: Separating Scientific Fact from Personal Opinion)
  • * Is the world overpopulated?

    If all of the world's people were located in the Province of Alberta (just a touch smaller in area than the State of Texas) and each were to have an equal share of all of the land in Alberta, then each of the world's people would have 98.6m2 of land to live on.

    Assuming that the average household consists of three people, a family of three would have enough space (3,184 ft2) for a moderately-sized house and a garden large enough to grow some of the food consumed by the family.

    • Alberta land area: 661,565 km2, 255,541 miles2
    • World population: 6,706,993,152 (Source: CIA World Factbook, July 2008 est.)


The Rockefellers, recognizing a good thing when they saw it, and not to be outdone, followed suit with their Rockefeller Foundation (endorsed by John D. Rockefeller and John D. Rockefeller Jr. in the year 1913).  As the Rockefellers had been and still are involved in promoting global unification and domination by a centralized global government, as well as in promoting world-population control and reduction, it should not come as a surprise that the Rockefeller Foundation was from the start and still is heavily involved in the re-engineering of society.
   The Rockefeller Foundation funded, amongst others, the following programs:

  • The now discredited research by Alfred Kinsey on human sexuality, research that ignited the sexual revolution and thereby contributed to the acceleration of the destruction of our families;
  • The Bureau of Social Hygiene, whose mission was research and education on birth control, maternal health and sex education (all are euphemisms for tools of population control);
  • A new Department of Industrial Relations, inviting William Lyon MacKenzie King to head it. He became a close and key advisor to John D. Rockefeller Jr. through the Ludlow massacre (in 1914, which the Rockefeller-owned Colorado Fuel & Iron Company helped to bring about by calling in the Colorado National Guard to oppose the striking miners and their families.  The Colorado National Guard then machine-gunned the strikers and their families). 
       William Lyon MacKenzie King was rewarded for his valuable contributions to restoring John D. Rockefeller Jr.'s public image through a payment of $150,000.  That was a princely sum at the time (roughly the equivalent of $6 million in today's money) and surely proved to be of help in making William Lyon MacKenzie King the prime minister of Canada in 1921.
  • The relocation of German (Jewish) scholars from German universities to America (to American universities that is).  Amongst those whom the Rockefeller Foundation arranged to have thus transferred where the members of the Frankfurt (Germany) Institute for Social Research, a communist think tank and better know as the Frankfurt School.  Some of those relocated members of the Frankfurt School were installed in another program set up  by the Rockefeller Foundation:
  • The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) - Especially the notable 1939-45 War and Peace Studies that advised the US State Department and the US government on World War II strategy and forward planning (Wikipedia). 

The full list of all such programs that were funded or launched by the Rockefeller Foundation is far too long to be shown here, but many of them appear to be aimed at the re-engineering of society and civilization, even of human nature and humanity itself, all of which is being financed out (tax-free) income produced by Exxon (formerly ESSO, and before that, Standard Oil (S.O.) of New Jersey).  That sort of money provided by purchasers of fuel buys a lot of effective social engineering.  All of which brings us to

The most profitable war of all, the war against the family

In addition to regular run-of-the-mill wars, there is the most profitable war of all, a war that began just recently and to which there is apparently no end, the war against the family, a war that is far more deadly than all common wars combined but is also far more profitable to those in power.
   What could be more profitable than to create at least two households for every single one?  Two of everything, and no hope of getting away from consumerism and empty savings accounts; consumerism not born out of the want for luxury but out of necessity and making discretionary buying decisions compulsory. 
   A permanent war, one against the family, is so much more reliable as a source of income than one that lasts only for a few years.  And, as always, men get the short end of the stick in that one, too.  Aside from economically devastating them, nothing has ravaged men as much as the war on the family during the last century.   The number of male suicide victims alone in the US during the last few decades is greater than the loss of male lives the US experienced in all of the wars it fought during the last century.  (See suicide section at this website for more details.)
   Last, but not least, witness the costs of the poverty, deprivation and social devastation caused by the implementation of the international agenda for the planned destruction of the family.  Those costs, of course, are the income of the massive multi-billion-dollar divorce industry and its host of adjuncts.

War As a Hobby
By Fred Reed (of "Fred on Everything" fame)

Wars are seductive as women in the night....Perspectives change....

I came home in a packed Medevac 141 with a guy slung above me sprouting tubes that led into bags. He died en route. Those who survived soon realized that in six months no one would care what they had gone through, yet they would spend the rest of their lives in the wheel chair. A colostomy bag, they found, was not a great conversation piece in a singles bar. For them, the war never went away.

Spend a year on a casualty ward. When the girlfriend of seventeen from Chattanooga finds that her Mikey is blind and doesn't precisely have a face, her expression is something to see. Or not to see. You can become disposed to ask: Is this war for anything? Or is it just a war? (Full Story)

What my father got for leaving his health in the Battle of the Somme was a stay of two years in a military hospital.  In addition to the many pieces of shrapnel that could never be removed from his body and chest, he brought home these: dadsmedals.JPG (55947 bytes)
