WWII What if?



I've been thinking about WWII. Maybe it's all the D-Day celebrations in the news lately. It was pretty horrific. However, the historians say war is what pulled the United States out of the Great Depression. War put men in uniform and war spending put people to work in factories. People went from having no work to having all the work they could handle.

What if WWII had never happened? How long would have the depression lasted? Another year or two? Forever? Would it have broken the capitalistic model, forcing the development of a new financial system?

It's great that depression ended, but the cost was too high. Was the cost of prosperity horrific death and destruction? What kind of Faustian bargain did the world make back then? I bet those who died would have much preferred poverty.

So here we are, suffering from underemployment, low wages, and a stagnant economy. The rich are getting richer, but everyone else is not doing well at all. Do the powers that be think war is the only answer to economic malaise? Is that why there's so much saber rattling of late?

Maybe war is a way of distracting people from the inequalities around them? Rally round the flag and all that. Perhaps this time around we've had enough of war. When the economic model fails, don't jump start it with war. Let it and fail if need be. Then we can find something that does work. If war is the answer then it could be we are asking the wrong questions.

  1. War is the wrong answer to "How do we fix the economy."

    But it was probably the right answer to "How do we stop the Nazis from overrunning more of the world and expanding their program of genocide, and what should be done to prevent the Japanese from tossing more Chinese babies around on bayonets."

    Sometimes, there are people who need to be stopped.

    1. True enough. That's why WWII is thought of as the last "good" war.


      . . . but what if the next war is mostly for the money?

    1. One would think that "progress" would have given us something better by now. It seems our big brains are a waste.

  3. I hate to think that the best we can do is have yet another war! There must be a better way!

    1. We should be able to do better than that.

  4. The Great Depression didn't end until 1949-50. The "war saved the nation" meme was created by the Truman administration to excuse the gross incompetence of the democrat's financial policy. FDR didn't get the US into WW-2 in order to stop the NAZI's OR "save the Jews" . He did it to save the international communist party and Stalin ( and to a lesser extent the communist party in Great Britton) Had the US stayed out of the war , The Russians would have crushed Germany in 1945 or 46 anyway. A little FYI: Had FDR left MacAurther (spell?) to be a POW in 1942, The OSS would have been allowed to operate in the PTO. Had that happened , the US military would have known about the Japanese Atomic bomb factory in north Korea . We and not Stalin would have captured or destroyed it and Russia wouldn't have had the bomb in 1946.

  5. The powers that shouldn't be have created poor economies and the wars. Poor economies to steal our money and bring down the country, wars to kill as many people as possible and to take attention away from subversive actions within the government. Most of the wars we have fought was to bring in the new world order and each time that fails they create another war and try again. Subversive forces having been working for a long time to turn America into a communist country to bring this country to it's knees to bring in the New World Order. From the looks of it they may success this time. NWO, Agenda 21, Georgia Guide stone. One of their goals is to kill as many people as possible and wars contribute to that end, as well as abortions, GMO foods, Floridated water, aluminum spray into the air, geo engineered weather. American has been under constant attack since it's inception and the powers that shouldn't be will not stop until they usher in their NWO. We must not let that happen. We have let them destroy our economy, kill our brave young men, they are trying their best to destroy our sovereignty. They have been lying, lying, lying to us for a very long time. We must find out what is really going on and stop this madness. It is what we don't know that is destroying us. Find out more from Dr. Stan Monteith of Radio Liberty he's been sounding the alarm for decades. Nobody was really listening until now. radioliberty.com, He has a radio show and he has recorded shows on his website you can listen to. Wake up my fellow citizens and find out the truth. Let us take that truth and win back our country. WND had an article about the Georgia Guide stones, such a thing should not be in our country. There are people in high places that want to kill off 90 percent of the population. I say again - wake up my people, find out the truth. It's not what you have been told by the media, movies and television. We've been brainwashed.

    1. They've been trying to kill us off for years, but still we vastly outnumber them. We are tougher than they think.
