3-D PRINTING SET TO ENTER MAINSTREAM… (?): GEOPOLITICAL CONTEXTS

August 4, 2013 By Joseph P. Farrell

Over the past several weeks, I've been advancing a thesis concerning 3-d printing, in conjunction with a financial and economic analysis by former Assistant Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, Catherine Austin Fitts. This scenario emerged during discussions she, Dr. de Hart, and I had during her recent visit. Basically, our argument runs like this:

  1. During the post-Cold War period, the Anglo-American oligarchy - or the military-industrial-intelligence-finance complex - attempted to quick-start a unipolar world order based around America's status as the sole remaining superpower (q.v. Zbnw Brzznsk's The Grand Chessboard for example). The game plan appeared to have been to bring in a global government on this basis.
  2. Discerning this agenda, Russia and China quickly moved to counteract this dangerous geopolitical agenda by forming the Shanghai Accords, a broad set of agreements in areas of economic and political cooperation between the two countries, and invited in other nations. This basis has now expanded into the BRICSA nations;
  3. 9/11 occurred, and regardless of how one might analyze the conspiratorial forces behind this event, it did serve to inject Western power - principally American and British - into Central Asia in a major way, and this served only to intensify the efforts of Russia and China to expand their alliance and the BRICS concept;
  4. Then there was the meltdown of the housing market, leading to the derivatives crisis and the bailouts that followed, indicating a dramatic loss of confidence in the western financial system. While aspects of this are irrevocably tied to what I believe was a hidden system of finance put into place using Axis loot following World War Two, and related financial shenanigans in post-Soviet Russia, the net effect was to produce a call for gold repatriation on the part of nations like Venezuela and more importantly, Germany. The BRICSA nations bagan buying physical gold, while Mr. Putin placed Russian naval vessels in Venezuela for good measure, again thumbing his nose at an over-extended West.
  5. During the period of the 1970s to the 2000s, an effort was made to shift the basis of the US dollar's reserve status from oil to GMOs, another controllable resource, and concurrently with this, efforts began during the Administration of G.H.W. Bush to extend the concepts of American patent law - friendly to GMOs - on a world wide basis. As the science began to roll in that GMOs were at the minimum questionable, pushback against them began to occur from the BRICS nations, beginning with India, and spreading quickly to Europe.

All this led us to the conclusion that a decision was taken sometime during the last decade to retrench into their base of power in North America, and to do this, three things began to occur:

  1. As Secretary Fitts pointed out during her visit, the first thing that began to occur was the development of energy resources to liberate the West from Middle Eastern oil;
  2. The second thing was the vast expansion of electronic surveillance, which, as I have argued, is not only intimately connected to Secretary Fitts' idea of the "ultimate insider trading mechanism" and ability to manipulate markets, but perhaps equally, a move to base the dollar on information and global clearing capability (not that anyone would trust the USSA in this role any more, but nonetheless, it is a tremendous capability for currency in the electronic age);
  3. Finally, there was the need to bring back manufacturing to North America in a major way.

Enter 3-d printing, which, as I have argued, is the lever here, and most likely a technology leaked into the public from the black projects world. Now, our friends at phys.org have noted these developments in the following article:

Economic analysis shows 3-D printing is ready for showtime

I hope you noted something very significant in this piece:

In the study, Pearce and his team chose 20 common listed on Thingiverse. Then they used Google Shopping to determine the maximum and minimum cost of buying those 20 items online, shipping charges not included.Read more at: http://phys.org/news/2013-07-economic-analysis-d-ready-showtime.html#jCp

Next, they calculated the cost of making them with 3D printers. The conclusion: it would cost the typical consumer from $312 to $1,944 to buy those 20 things compared to $18 to make them in a weekend.

In other words, the cost of 3-d printing is not labor-intensive. So we thus have the two ingredients for a tremendous industrial and cultural transformation: low energy cost, and low labor cost.

There is a third consideration here: 3-d printing, on a massive scale, is also decentralized, a viable solution for dispersal of manufacturing from centralized plants (and therefore, big targets), to a decentralized system (one requiring greater surveillance capabilities, we might add).

In short, it appears a major effort is underway to promote three-d printing, and that this effort is being driven by the power oligarchy through its various media organs. The response, of course, will be similar moves on the part of the BRICSA nations.

The real question is why is all this being done? That's a subject for much speculation, and another day....

See you on the flip side.
