As we enter 2015 with a worldwide bang, not a whimper, it would seem that a paradox of quotes will be the marching orders for the remainder of the year.

“If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again” (Thomas H. Palmer)

“Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results”

(Albert Einstein)

In 1975 “Three Days of the Condor”, a Robert Redford-Faye Dunaway film was released. Six of seven CIA think tank employees were assassinated. Redford escaping death by pure luck was chased, threatened and shot at, all to no avail. With help from his co-star he was able to bring to light that he and his group had inadvertently discovered plans for a Mid-East United States invasion to control the world’s oil. Thus the need for their elimination. Such information, made public, would be extremely detrimental. How times have changed.

Forty years later, art continues to imitate life as the formal and informal invasions have in fact been attempted in Libya, Iraq and Syria. Unlike then it’s now all public information. No assassinations needed. Maybe?

We hear about weapons of mass destruction, terrorist strongholds, Sharia Law and regime changes, but the truth was stated in 1975 and hasn’t changed to this day, it’s all about oil.

The rulers will try, try and try again, regardless of the expense in money and human life or questionable alliances with Saudi Arabia/Al-Qaeda, till Middle Eastern oil is ours.

As persistent as the military oilmongers continue to be so too are the Central Bankers. If millions and billions of shadow fiat is not enough to make a success of the Keynesian philosophy then most assuredly trillions and quadrillions will do the trick.

Unfortunately the divide between the 1% and the 99% continues to get greater and greater. Japan, Europe, China and the United States will all travel the Keynesian road and need more and more sacrifice by their people to keep the ruling elite in champagne and caviar.

Legacy companies such as Caterpillar, IBM and Microsoft continue to make stock market decisions at the expense of their employees with the support of the Federal Reserve. The chance for true economic recovery will become a fond illusion. We will sink further into a worldwide deflationary depression.

The mainstream media, world politicians and military leaders would do well to heed the words of Palmer and Einstein with a little addition

If at first you don’t succeed try, try again

BUT DON’T

do the same thing over and over again and expect a different result
