Is it all a banking problem?
While various motivations have been attributed to evil Western regimes to explain the destruction of their own societies over the last 40 years, arguably it is all explicable in terms of trying to keep the fractional reserve banking system going for as long as possible.
As we know, under the current system, money is created out of thin air by banks as interest-bearing debt. Thus at any given time it is logically not possible for all debt to be paid off, since there will be more debt in existence than there is money to pay it. The only solution to keep the system going is for new debtors to keep borrowing more money into existence to pay existing loans. It follows that the economy as a whole must grow exponentially or collapse.
In the first 75 years of the twentieth century, real exponential growth was possible due to an abundance of cheap oil energy. In fact, energy consumption roughly doubled every decade. However, such massive increases in consumption in a finite world then became unsustainable, so real exponential economic growth became impossible. Hence artificial Ponzi-scheme type growth involving dragging non-economic activities into the economic system and bidding up the price of existing assets became necessary.
Hence feminism. Getting women to go to “work” and providing them with various welfare freebees enabled them to become debtors in their own right, thus artificially expanding the money supply. Because dual incomes became the norm it allowed the cost of housing, and hence mortgages to keep expanding, further increasing the money supply. It also dragged a lot of the services women had been providing informally – child care, care of the elderly, sex even – into the formal economy.
Hence mass immigration. Feminism results in declining birth rates. Although this has various benefits for predatory regimes, in the medium term it is antithetical to Ponzi-style economic growth. That is where immigrants come in. In real terms they are a drain on existing society, but in Ponzi terms, they represent a population largely unburdened with debt. The common thread of the populations most immigrants to the West are drawn from is not so much that they are intrinsically worthless low-IQ scum (Korean immigration is common for example) but rather that they are mostly debt-free and so can borrow more money into existence.
Also explained is the culture of financial bubbles and bankster looting. Since no actual growth in economic activity is possible the only thing to do is to bundle the newly-created cash and channel it into various sub-Ponzi schemes which initially seem to increase in value as a kind of self-fulfilling prophecy. Since no actual value is created these schemes must inevitably fail in due course. This inevitability of failure explains the culture of corporate looting, whereby financial entities go bankrupt while the senior executives and associated banksters walk away filthy rich. If failure is inevitable there is nothing to be done but steal as much as possible before it happens.
Probably the current insanity serves various purposes, but for those who don’t like “conspiracy theories” it can all be explained in terms of economic necessity within the context of the fractional reserve system.
