The Cancerous War on the West
The complicit media and the alarmists and oligarchs working behind the scenes will get an easy victory over the largest free, democratic countries.
By John Shanahan
Domestic and foreign enemies of North America and Europe have been working to destroy freedom and the capitalistic economic system since the 1970s. Like the growth of cancer cells, their efforts are reaching a point when they’ll cause tremendous change that could bring down North America and Europe in all the marvel and glory of their liberty and prosperity.
North Americans and Europeans are familiar with cancer and war. Both have similar beginnings and endings. In between, there is a lot of loss and suffering.
In the human body, millions of cancer cells multiply without detection in the beginning. Since there are over 25 trillion cells in the average adult male body, several million cancer cells are a tiny fraction and go unnoticed.
Similarly, the many precursors to global war seem too small to interest the public. Only when significant violence happens do the media start covering it and political leaders begin to act.
Regional and global wars in the past were horrific. It is a wonder that humanity survived.
It is possible but, knowing human nature, not likely that large-scale wars could be eliminated in the future. But most likely they will happen again. How soon? And will they look the same as past wars?
The situation in San Francisco, California, is one place to examine the failure of government that could lead to serious conflict. Michael Shellenberger has been covering it. He is a great American who has been on many sides of important topics in America in the last forty years. He has got it right now! His topic in this essay is only a few heartbeats away from being applicable to all of North America and Europe.
Berkeley and San Francisco in the early 1970s were better than in 2022. My wife and I lived in Berkeley, and I worked in San Francisco at an international engineering and construction company designing nuclear power plants. California was still beautiful, though hippies had taken over San Francisco and Berkeley. The Vietnam War was dividing the American people. A heroic law enforcement officer became a undercover hippie for ten years to hunt down Bernardine Dohrn, a terrorist determined to kill elected leaders. Yet, later California gave Dohrn a position as a law professor (!) at one of its universities.
Many say the precursors to World War III started in the 1970s. No military blitzkrieg yet. The conspirators will keep a low profile as long as possible. It is cheaper and safer for them. They are in no rush. With the American government being what it has been since the 1970s, the complicit media and the alarmists and oligarchs working behind the scenes will get an easy victory over the largest free, democratic countries.
When, having been forced to switch from abundant, concentrated, affordable, reliable fossil fuels and nuclear to dilute, expensive, and unreliable wind and solar for their energy, North Americans and Europeans will be on their knees economically and militarily. Foreign enemies will be pleased. Those who hate freedom and the free-market, capitalistic system will move to take over.
Who are the conspirators? Most are extreme environmentalists, bankers, and oligarchs at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, all of whom plan to assume power over the surviving population.
What date will mark the official beginning of WWIII? For the United States in WWII, it was the attack on Pearl Harbor. For Europe in WWI, it was the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand and his wife.
Will WWIII remain in stealth mode for years? Will the United States’ drawing a do-not-cross line for a Russian pipeline without the full backing of Europe be the trigger? As in WWI and WWII, will Asia jump in immediately?
Who will stay on the sidelines? For how long?
