If you ever wanted to look into the mind of the kind of cretins that inhabit groups such as the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) and Bilderberg, you just got your wish.
James Traub, who has never really done anything except be born into the Bloomingdale’s fortune, just put out a call for the elites to “rise up” against the non-elites, which he calls the “ignorant masses.”
He penned his article in the pro-war and tyranny rag, “Foreign Policy,” apparently, in disgust over Brexit.
According to him, the ignorant masses were stupid to not listen to politicians and “experts” on why they shouldn’t want to remain part of a tyrannical, technocratic state run by violent overlord “elites.” Elites who, like him, usually have done nothing with their lives… with the exception of lie, steal and manipulate their way into positions of power.
He calls for the “elites” to “rise up” but never really explains how. His writing is hard to follow. It is full of words but no real substance, just as one would expect from a man who has never had to work hard to achieve anything.
But he does say that, “It’s not about the left vs. the right; it’s about the sane vs. the mindlessly angry.”
Well, he’s right, it isn’t about the “left” or the “right” as they are both one-in-the-same now in a place like the US. Or at least in this once-every-four-year choosing of the lesser evil. Trump actually seems more left than Killary. And Killary is definitely more of a pro-war corporatist than Trump. But, Traub says, instead, it is about “the sane and the mindlessly angry.”
If you aren’t angry about this tyrannical globalist system quickly being assembled around all of us, you’d either have to be insane… or love servitude, or, like Traub, be one of the architects of this evil system.
The fact that he even wrote this publicly shows he is so deluded that he doesn’t realize he might quickly get on a bitcoin assassination list for being so brazen. Or, at the very least, embarrassed publicly for his gall in writing such a pretentious piece of literary garbage.
I’ve never heard of James Traub before. You probably haven’t either.
But he appears to think he is one of the “elites” who should be “rising up” against us plebs who don’t know what is good for us.
These are the kind of people who gravitate towards things like the CFR or Bilderberg. Worthless human beings with no real talent and having never created any value in their life aspire to rule us all.
What real job has Hillary Clinton ever had? Or Barack Obomber? Or David Cameron? Or any of them as Nigel Farage pointed out so well in one of the best speeches of the year lately.
Listen to the fat bureaurats chortle as Farage mentions that none of them have ever had a real job.
A real job, by the way, is one in which you provide value in the free market. Not one where you are paid from stolen funds (taxes) in a communist-style centrally planned system and make arbitrary, immoral dictates to others backed up by violence based on how well you can lie and manipulate people.
Traub, if not living off his family’s fortune, and not nestling into the folds of Killary Clinton’s skirt and lauding praise at her in return for favors, would be hard pressed to find any work.
His article amounts to a complaint that the passage of Brexit illustrates how easily voters can be manipulated. His disgust is focused on voters who were taken in by false arguments and also by the “leaders” themselves who lied to voters .
The point he wants to make is that people generally are ignorant and the problem is compounded when “leaders” take advantage of their natural stupidity and credulity “It is necessary,” he writes, “to say that people are deluded and that the task of leadership is to un-delude them.”
Every condescending element of privileged thinking is on display here, along with the certainty that people need to be led. In his warped worldview, elites will have to “rise up” and fight through misconceptions and resentment to reclaim their rightful places in front of the herd.
Well, Mr. Traub, sorry to say your world is gone. You’re not going to be able to get it back. Articles like this one just remind us that people actually get along best when they leave each other alone. We weren’t born into money or positions of authority. Any leadership we’ve been able to gather at TDV has been as a result of our persuading people through our arguments.
Freedom is better than state control and society functions best under the Invisible Hand rather than under the thumb of a despot.
TDV, with its anarcho-capitalist, Austrian economics base is the fastest growing financial newsletter in the world (reminder: you can still subscribe and get a 16% discount by midnight Eastern tonight by using the discount code TDV2016 here). That’s because people are beginning to wake up to the murder, destruction and impoverishment wrought on them by people like Traub.
The game has changed, Traub, and you are too high up in your Ivory Tower to even realize it. WE are the ones rising up against people like YOU.
