The Drill Down: Part 4 of 5

I had to take a few weeks off to make sure an investment was profitable, so I'll just jump right back into it.  In the previous drill down, I had discussed how time manipulation is the key to how the entire world economic engine works.  I will now talk about the limitations of that system.

"With the advent of nuclear weapons, massive market corrections now carried an even greater risk. If a major player of this game now goes under, his nuclear arsenal becomes hot property at best, a primary export at worst. Just as brute forces as a means of modifying labor vector performance could no longer compete, manipulating the financial shell game as a means of optimizing your labor vectors has peaked and is waning due to the nuclear risk. A new technique will have to be implemented. This technique is what I call the Post-Emotion Solution."

Alright, fuck meat, listen up. This is where shit gets unwieldy and I get agitated, mostly because once we approach the American Political Threshold, you break down and turn into a slobbering heap of soundbites that can only be cured via high velocity transcordial lead therapy. Back away from the propaganda and hang tight.

The labor vectors are represented by two massive categories: consumers and producers. For a good few hundred years, this relationship was roughly kept in check via the gold standard. (I can already see you backing away, muttering something about Ron Paul. Go huff a cock truck over at your fairy tale universe and play dress up with the rest of your emotional junkie ilk.) And for a while, it was good enough.

A bipartisan solution: The Big Authority the Left
likes to enforce the Big Culture that the Right likes.
And by good enough, I mean that people had no problem with fixed currency resulting in fixed class stratification.  This causes labor vector potential to be used particularly ineffectively. Most folks end up being agrarian serfs in an closed information system who end up giving birth to more agrarian serfs. Sometimes, someone gets a fire under his dick and tries to break free in the form of a slave revolt, but they are usually crushed ruthlessly by the standing power as to set and example for anyone else trying to get a promotion. (This failure, of course, is instantly worshiped by liberal arts majors and their pent up sexual frustration worldwide.) This was the game we all played for about five thousand years and no one really won because, in the end, a king could die of a tooth infection just as easily as a peon... but hey! At least only one of them is working the fields! Pwned nub gg lrn2play.

Then along comes the industrial age. A small group of particularly goofy people managed to figure out an effective way of amplifying labor vector output. Instead of having humans create clothes by a very laborious manual process, they could hop aboard a time machine and pump out cloth pretty easily.  This means of manufacturing allowed a dearth of material to be accessible to the masses for the first time by reducing the time value required to create a good. That silk bolt used to cost $10,000 a foot. Now it costs $10 a foot. Of course, the flip-side is that it also reduced the value of labor vectors as well. That artisan clothier commanded the entire local market and now, she is competing against hundreds of upstarts who will undercut her dramatically for their piece of the pie. The race to the bottom had begun where hard work was not enough to compete. Smart work was also needed, as new technological advancements could reduce your operating costs significantly.

Vector commanders (classical aristocrats at the time) could no longer abide by the standard ways of ruling the labor vectors: A standing garrison, the fear of the lash, a Godhead of local preference, and cultural traditions mean nothing in the face of what mass produced clothing, firearms, and printing presses do to labor vectors. Chemistry unlocked a few achievements. Locomotion was discovered and added to the pile. Electricity was being tinkered with. With each new technology, social orders were utterly destabilized and new labor vectors were unleashed. Loyal farmhands who were peons for hundreds of years moved to a filthy urban setups to make better wages and pump out starving babies by the truckload. To all but the most dense of the elite, it became abundantly clear that a vector commander could not remain in his position by simply trying to predict and adapt to the newest innovation.

The destabilization of the industrial age ultimately exacerbated the power of finance. A subtle linkage was made between industrial discovery, factory output, and financial stability. When you make loans available to people, they will discover new techniques to make productivity more effective, thus increasing the output volume of their goods and reducing the price. This creates economic stability that counters the social destabilization caused by technology. However, if everyone is producing and no one is demanding, now you have a problem. Conversely, if everyone is demanding and no one is producing, you have the same problem. Industrialism needs a consumer and it needs a producer. Trying to find solutions to this problem was the main pastime of vector commanders until 1945 in which Japan had two tiny suns detonate on its island and vector commanders, for the first time, all got the same message: shit just got really really real.

If the balance between consumer and producer could not be maintained and the economic destabilization of the industrial age returns, some upstart fuck bag who doesn't really care about anything this blog is talking about is going to start throwing nukes all over the place until things stabilize in his favor. Of course, the problem here is that throwing nuclear weapons around isn't going to stabilize shit and, in all reality, just might permanently destabilize everything. The vector commanders have finally painted themselves into a corner, and before you start celebrating karmic endings by squeezing loneliness out of your underachieving pee slit, they also happened to paint the rest of us into the same corner with them.

Between 1945 and 1974, vector commanders tried out new theories of managing their systems in the face of this outcome and had stumbled upon the fact that nuclear empires absolutely required oil to operate.  The Nixon Shock destabilized US dollars, which destabilized oil prices, which forced the invention of the petrodollar to balanced oil consumption vs. dollar demand, causing oil prices to first peak then drop dramatically, causing the Soviet Union to lose extreme amounts of revenue since they were an oil export nation, which lead to the Soviet Union not being able to afford food, which lead to their collapse.  By 1991, a nuclear empire capitulated for the first time, resulting in the emigration of nuclear talent and the transfer of nuclear arms to those looking to be a nuclear empire. The link was now established: a nuclear empire is much more dangerous in death.  And here is where we stand today.

When the crossbow was invented, Pope Innocent II banned them because it allowed uneducated peons to easily kill his very expensive cavalry.  That means of weapon control ultimately failed and even more destructive weapons were discovered.

The Tokugawa government banned guns because it allowed uneducated peons to easily kill their very expensive army.  That means of weapon control ultimately failed and even more destructive weapons were discovered.

Nations around the world banned nuclear weapons because it allowed uncooperative nations to easily destroy a very fragile global trade system.  That means of weapon control is failing and it is failing for the same reason that previous weapon control initiatives fail: You can't outlaw ambition.  Of course, if you can't stop the symptom, you can always cure the disease and that is the theory behind the Post-Emotional Solution.
