ZetaTalk: Ulterior Motives
Note: written on Nov 15, 1995
The motives of many government operations are not at all what they seem. Most citizens of whatever country feel their government to be a monolith with a life of its
own. The citizen, who feeds and supports this monolith, is left feeling trapped and in the dark. They wish to trust their government, but sense there is more going on
in the corridors of power than they will ever know. This feeling is not without basis, and on occasion groundless suspicions are grounded when corruption or
nepotism or empire building are revealed. But do the secret motives of some governments go beyond personal gain? Absolutely, and these are schemes you do not
hear about, as they are well disguised.
- Government schemes that seldom if ever get exposed include attempts to shape the populace. A brighter yet more docile citizen is desired, one who will be
productive yet not rebellious. This scheme, a secret motive of most in positions of power, aims to shape the populace by rewarding the right genetics with
jobs, and denying the rejects. Jobs mean food, housing, educational opportunities, and medical attention. Those with jobs survive and pass along their genes,
and those without jobs get sick and don't recover or slowly starve. In spite of the statistics on welfare and free medical services, the care the poor receive
does not bring their chances up to the level of those with steady jobs and benefits. By these means their numbers are held in check.
- Another ulterior motive of those in power is conquest and possession, the child's desire to have all the toys for himself and his parents as his devoted
servants. There is never enough. As outright war is seldom possible, economic maneuvering results. Since those in power see themselves as controlling the
country they govern, they begin to see the country as their possession. Economic manipulation is presented at every bargaining table - exchange rates,
import quotas, tit-for-tat agreements - all become a wrestling match. What results are short-sighted gains that inhibit long-term benefits, so the citizen gets a
net loss. Nevertheless, these practices continue, excused as being for the good of the country.
- Ulterior motives also include takeover attempts by insurrection. This is a scheme much played out in the media, but the actual practice is not as dramatic.
Fomenting rebellion or assassination may make an exciting movie, but actual insurrection practices are more insidious. Nations may deliberately turn their
backs on a target country, denying or withdrawing aid. The effect is to undercut progress, making the target vulnerable to essential takeover by an economic
offer of assistance later. Population controls may be denied, and where it would seem this would only add more citizens, a wealth, in point of fact unfettered
population expansion lowers the standard of living. Allowing or even supporting insurgent groups to wear at the target country's fabric is also an effective
weapon, and the choices of those in power are seldom questioned. At times they interfere and at times not. These choices are not whimsical, but directed,
and driven by ulterior takeover motives.
- One of the strongest ulterior motives that governments possess is genocide. This becomes essentially policy, but goes by dozens of different names - fiscal
restraint, states rights, licensing initiatives - which when examined as to their effect can be recognized for their intent. Saving funds by eliminating
immunization shots does not save money, as children surviving measles encephalitis become mainly wards of the state, and a single hospitalization pays for
hundreds if not thousands of shots. It is the deaths, not the funds, that these sponsors are counting, though they would scarcely admit to their feelings. The
American Indian suffers so brutally at the hands of the bureaucracy that is designed to bring salvation that the assault scarcely needs to be explained as it is
common knowledge. The taxpayer's dollars go not to support and assist American Indians but to the bureaucrats, who do everything in their power to keep
their charges dependent, unemployed, and drunk. If technical or vocational training looks like it might succeed, it is stifled and replaced with social science
- The issue of defense is where ulterior motives can scarcely be denied. The standing army that claims its mission is defense has its eyes constantly on weapons
which will allow it to conquer. Attend meetings with the military brass and you will see this revealed. Weapons production is not discussed in terms of its
repelling power, it is destruction that counts. Does one defend their territory by destroying it? Next we see under what circumstances the military defends its
country. The US military rushed to aid the oil cartel by invading countries in the Middle East, and was likewise rushed to support economic interests in
Vietnam and Panama, to mention only a few. This non-defense is explained to the taxpayers, who see their loved ones die in battle, as necessary in order to
protect democracy, maintain a standard of living, or for the sake of decency if no other reasons can be found. That other situations just as deserving of
correction emerge around the world almost daily and are neglected is barely ever questioned by the citizens who support this aggression.
