The proposed Dubai Pyramid, dwarfs Giza, a symbol of the rise of mono culture
In lieu of some mega-post, I simply wanted to make a quick laundry list of a number of early Pluto in Capricorn events with links that I think are valuable to look at an understand as the sub-textual underpinnings of the inherent movement in Pluto/Cap towards the ascent of the corporatocracy. If you are new here, I use that term frequently and pun not intended, liberally. In my definition of the word, it is a fusion of governance and business interests that has, at it’s core a mono cultural imperative.
It’s ironic that the term diversity is championed and vigorously encouraged, from curriculum to social programs, and yet, what we are and will be witnessing is less and less diversity in the private sector, as the big fishes swallow the little fishes. The most recent example of this trend taking place is in the banking industry where the big banks that were on the ropes because they were greedy and made millions of horrible loans during the housing bubble and got bailed out, are now buying other banks with that money and not releasing it into the private sector where it could be theoretically capitalized and stimulated. As a result, we’ll see at the most, 2-3 major banks, maybe the big one or big two in the auto industry and so on.
Best Buy just recently saw the decimation of the it’s competition with the demise of The Good Guys and Circuit City is hanging onto it’s survival by a fiber optic thread. So in the home entertainment market, Best Buy will in some cases, be the only buy. Part of the mono-tization of Pluto in Capricorn will simply be the result of attrition, while others examples will be much more machiavellian.
I recently had a conversation with good friend, a person who has undergone some serious, personal tragedy over the course of their life and as a result, was forced to develop some potent inner vision as a survival mechanism and we discuss the state of affairs frequently. Our last conversation touched on Argentina and how what happened to them in the eighties/nineties is now taking place, right here. John Perkins, Confessions Of An Economic Hit Man , a guy on the inside, has also come to this very same conclusion. The assimilation into social mono-tonomy (moneytonomy) is in some ways tied up into the unfettered, free-market capitalistic model, where the ultimate goal is not innovation through competition, it is domination of the marketplace, crushing any and all competition.
Is socialism the bromide for such a bitter diet of inequity served in increasingly obscene portions? I don’t think so–at least not here in The United States. While I would never compare us to the few remaining wild and untamed appaloosas that can be seen at times throughout the west, we have been indoctrinated, for better or worse with the concept that “we are free.” We were also turned into fat and unhappy consumers, versus accountable citizens and together, this is a very bad combination, creating a society of mostly complacent and insulated people with the assumption that because they live in The USA, they are free. When the curtain is pulled back and people will have both their creature comforts and their freedom curtailed by a more socialistic model, I don’t think they’ll be that complacent for much longer. In essence, despite the fact that we are already for the most part, living in a socialist paradigm, relatively cheap money and loose credit have kept socialism mostly in the background. But when it disappears, it will rapidly surface.
I have written about this before as part of “The Melting Economy” series and Barack Obama has already stated that he will create a new, uber, WPA style program and put Americans back to work. He will save the day at the expense of the private sector and the upward mobility we’ve seen in The USA will grind to a halt. People will be able to choose from either the new social economy of Obama’s great work, or join the military in order to put food on the table. How will americans respond to these alternatives? If it comes down to eating or putting on a green jump suit and working at wind farm for minimum wage, will americans say, “gimme the jumpsuit,” or have we been so conditioned to the fact that not just freedom, but the economic freedom to pursue our own livelihood, will be curtailed? Will having our options limited and choices narrowed will be an anathema to us, despite the efforts to re-direct us from such natural expectations? In essence, is the water getting too hot? This is why I don’t think a bare naked model of socialism as it relates to a mono expression of the corporatocracy can be successful here–it’s just not a part of our collective DNA.
So here is a linked list of recent headlines with a brief description of the earliest signs and manifestations of Pluto in Capricorn:
THE EARLY HEADLINES FROM PLUTO IN CAPRICORN
Only Safe Brains Can Travel.
A disturbing look at new trend of airport security that will incorporate brain scans as a means to determine who can fly or not. Remember that little rant by Joe Biden when he vetted John Roberts about having to rule on chips and brain scans?
Swat Team Raids Family Who Started A Private Food CO-OP
This goes back to my post on “Thrival” and how one of the things that people can do to live better during the hard energies of Pluto in Cap was to create community arks and local co-ops, buying in bulk. Well apparently, that’s not encouraged. Heavy handed tactics were employed to promote fear.
The Rise Of Cyborg Armies, Conscience Free Mercenary Enforcers
Terminator isn’t just a movie anymore.
Liberals Voice Concerns Over Obama
You’ll hear more and more griping from the hard left as Obama moves closer and closer to a centrist government that will look a lot like The Clinton/Bush model.
Obama Announces Massive Public Works Program
This is what I was referring to earlier in this post, the creation of the capital/socialist state, the bureaucratic assemblage of the corporatocracy.
That’s all from the frontlines of Pluto in Capricorn . . . for now.
