This is one of those serious discussions where it would really help if you had read our in-depth www.peoplenomics.com report this weekend where we discuss a new kind of warfare.
But, if you didn’t, there is a comment from a subscriber (here) that will hint in the proper direction. As our subscriber wrote:
“Mr. Ure that may have been in one of your top ten pieces. Schwerpunkt is the concept you were looking for. The Germans used it at the end of WWI. Some guy named Irwin Rommel helped perfect it in the Italian Alps. I do have to complement you on rediscovering these concepts on your own. It is a pleasure to watch your mind at work…“
There’s a big part – and a little part – to answering this reader observation.
Let’s dispense with the little part first: It was not Rommel along but others like general Heinz Guderian’s three divisions worth of XIX Panzers and others that used the technique. Rremember, France fell to Germany in 45-days in WW II and this speaks to a widespread application of schwerpunkt.
But the BIG part of the response is to say two things:
- Thanks for following Peoplenomics and contributing to our evolving understanding of the world Big Picture, and…
- The MOST interesting thing about the evolution of schwerpunkt (to me, anyway) was this description part in an early Military Review piece (2007, here) where the author notes:
“Schwerpunkt underwent some subtle but significant changes in the late 1880s and afterward, primarily stimulated by vigorous debate among German theoreticians about whether the introduction of more destructive weapons had rendered large-scale attack obsolete...”
Which relates to this Monday how?
Look around you.
Other than being a curious confluence of events (see this morning’s Coping Section for the “analogy problem” when comparing the digital and non-digital worlds) the most interesting line of creative thinking is to consider that we are now in a world with multiple continuous fronts. Multiple threats along the Global Continuous Front.
And that’s a very serious problem, indeed.
WannaCray virus will be hitting presumably thousands more people today. This is the newest of our continuous fronts.
But in the idiotic MainStreamMedia, iMSM, charged with preprogramming the public with “manipulable minutia” (M&M theory), the lead story in most has to do with Trump’s lefty-lamented firing of Comey. Useless barrels of bullshit about “who said what when.”
It doesn’t freaking matter. If Trump wanted to fire Comey because he parted his hair wrong, that’s the Commander in Chief’s choice. “…at the pleasure of…”
Still, the surrogate media of you-know-who’s soft coup are Trump-bashing for all their worth.
But it’s not a worthy story around here.
Oh, uh, just the OPENING OF A SECOND CONTINUOUS FRONT OF GLOBAL CALAMITY that has just be rolled out.
(Pardon me, but ViseGrips, and battering my head against the wall may be in order here, because people ain’t getting the Big Picture. Some who do, may have seen the new Dr. Steven Greer doc of Amazon about how the trillions have been stolen from the public for “black projects” which will ready us all for the NEXT big fear point, mock alien invasion. However, if you read Report from Iron Mountain (on the accessibility and desirability of Peace) , you’d already have figured out that a very solid reason why the Obamacare crap hasn’t been replaced yet is that it gives us the comparable major waste equivalent to war since the US needs to dispose of 27% of GDP to keep the illusion alive, but I digress….so back to point…)
The Next Continuous Front
The first major continuous front in the world was the one set up by the Russians and U.S. It was the Cold War and it served both countries well until Reagan broke the Russians with the US military-space program. Unable to compete, the Russians folded and when the Berlin Wall came down in 1989, they went off to sort through their economic rubble(s) and reconstitute.
No worries for the “continuous nuclear front” though as the Chinese threat was remarketed as the front patch for the holes left by the Russians.
In more contemporary times, we see the Iranians extending the development of the continuous front in the Middle East, along with the Saudis and Israelis, not that Pakistan has done badly, and of course India.
With the latest launch this weekend by Kid Korea, we see the front filling in nicely (or badly if you don’t have a rad suit and prepper goods at the ready).
Terrorism was – and I suppose IS – still a continuous front threat “sold” by the iMSM so we will all gently pay ever-increasing taxes, select “leaders” from a prescreened and controlled list of limited choices and such. And should an upstart slip through, as Trump has, they will be marginalized by the Obama “soft coup” and the co-opted iMSM.
But terrorism is, as Yuval Hurari writes in one of his books (I forget which one, it’s early), Terrorism is a weak war (substitute).
How many people were killed by terrorism in the continental US last year?
According to a Business Insider report “Since 9/11, however, foreign-born terrorists have killed roughly one American per year. Six Americans have died per year at the hands, guns, and bombs of Islamic terrorists (foreign and domestic).”
Thus, a business wonk like me can take the 2016 Homeland Security budget ($41.2 billion for FY 2016) and conclude the price of an American life is around $6.8-billion each. OK, back out ICE but you get the drift.
We know (Snopes.com says it’s true) that “Toddlers Killed more Americans than Terrorists in 2015.” I’ll spare you the 2015 Homeland budget cost per analysis.
We now behold two layers of the “continuous front” but the problem with the terrorism layer is that it’s so darn expensive and a hard sell.
What’s needed – including and especially if we have a roll-back in the (as Report from Iron Mountain prescribed in ’67) Huge National Health Care plan – we need a quick new continuous front.
What better than computers?
Everyone has one. Most are vulnerable. People are computationally inept in general, and the existence of a huge Internet threat would lead to the same kind of social control and dominance provided by the terrorism red herring except it would be all-pervasive and would provide the PTB with huge new avenues of crime against the population to pursue. Best of all, it sets the stage for Internet licensure which will be the next vector of public control. So the ruling paradigm can’t be widely challenged.
Empty bank account? Musta been cyber terror.
Trading account zeroed? Cyber terror again, ae, gee, gosh so sorry…
Social Security checks being rerouted? Must have been computer criminals…we’ll have someone look into it.
Thus, I am displeased to report to you that the same jaundiced view I had when I wrote Broken Web, the Coming Collpase of the Internet back in 2012 is alive, well, and on track to fill an important void which will keep the Project Blue Beam and the staged alien invasion von Braun warned us of, on hold for a good while longer.
As long, that is, as the three (or more, remember pandemic disease is still in play with HIV, Ebola, et alia) layers of continuous front in the ruling class “War Against the Peeps” holds together. Alien theatrics will follow, said von Braun.
If you’re confused why the USA gives money (or pick up trucks) to our enemies? It’s all to maintain “The Fronts” as we shall call them.
Gibberish and SMS (seriously missing substance) fwd->txts think is what makes “You’re either with us or against us…” and “The enemy of our enemy is our friend….” play so well from presidents on down. It’s easier to Tweet than think.
Today’s New Normal
Normally by now, I’d be into a rant ab out something economic.
But now that the cat’s out of the bag on how the continuous fronts of mind control are clearly stated for your easy reference, I’ll tell you the one number that indicates our future.
Dow futures are up 40 points.
The Grand Illusions are still working just fine this Monday. So dump some coffee down that pie hole of yours and get your ass to work.
Your continued participation in fighting nuclear proliferation, massive public health problems, pandemic disease, and cyber crime. c;limate change, and the rest of the charade seems to be working just fine.
For at least one more day.
This nutjob in the outback talking about schwerpunkt and Swarm Warfare?
He’s going back to bed.
