Thailand: West Tearing Down Old World to Build a “New” One

336789April 9, 2014 (Tony Cartalucci – NEO) – The
first step in subjugating a population is identifying their source of
strength, undermining it, and eventually eliminating it. This textbook
strategy employed by empires throughout human history is still busily
being applied around the world as Wall Street and London seek to achieve
global hegemony. In the past, it was done under the premise that the
imposing empire was socially, economically, and militarily superior, and
that by subjecting other nations, it was bringing them out of
barbarism, and into civilization. Today, this brand of “civilization”
includes the West’s “human rights” and “democracy” racket.

 

Thailand’s Source of Strength 

 

Fiercely
independent and nationalistic, and being the only nation in Southeast
Asia to avoid European colonization, Thailand’s sovereignty has been
protected for over 800 years by its revered monarchy. The current
dynasty, the House of Chakri, has reigned nearly as long as America has
existed as a nation and the current king is regarded as the equivalent
of a living “Founding Father.” And just as it has for 800 years, the
Thai Monarchy today provides the most provocative and meaningful answer
to the threats facing the Kingdom – including economic ruination and
poverty.

 

The answer is self-sufficiency.
Self-sufficiency as a nation, as a province, as a community and as a
household. This concept is enshrined in the Thai King’s “New Theory
or “self-sufficiency economy” and mirrors similar efforts found
throughout the world to break the back of the oppression and
exploitation that results from an interdependent globalized system
created by immense corporate-financier monopolies.

 

Formulated in the wake of the IMF’s
crippling economic “reordering” of Asia in the late 1990′s, the “New
Theory” implored both communities and individuals to grow sustainably by
avoiding debt and investing income into expanding tangible,
technological assets to further diversify and enhance economic activity.

 

A self-sufficient nation, is a sovereign
nation – one that chooses how it interacts with the rest of the world
on its own terms, rather than one that is bent in servile dependence on
foreign trade, “international institutions,” and foreign banking
cartels. Such a nation is an anathema to the global hegemons of Wall
Street and London.

 

For
this mortal sin against globalization, Thailand has been long targeted
first by the British and French empires, and then the subsequent
Anglo-American order for destabilization, destruction, and reordering.
In 1932, a British-backed military coup led by Pridi Banomyong ended
Thailand’s absolute monarchy. In 1946, he was accused of assassinating
the popular King Ananda Mahidol upon his return to Thailand. Pridi
escaped with US and British assistance, returning breifly in 1949 to
lead a failed second coup. He would then spend the rest of his life in
exile. 

 

During the 1970′s and 1980′s, so-called
“communists” would attempt to overthrow Thailand’s political order,
including the monarchy. And most recently, US-backed billionaire,
convicted criminal, accused mass murderer, and fugitive Thaksin
Shinawatra has led a 10 year push to undermine and overthrow Thailand’s
monarchy through a so-called “pro-democracy” movement
