Neo-Colonial New Zealand: The stealthy forging of a ‘Switzerland of the South Pacific’ Utopia [A backgrounder]

The New Zealand Crown oversees a Neo-Colonial jurisdiction whose public and private institutions manage a Shock Doctrine economic warfare framework for the benefit of Rich-Listers, foreign and domestic, to the detriment of New Zealand society. A ‘re-set’ of New Zealand onto a Neo-Colonial State trajectory occurred at a quickened pace in mid-1984 with the capture of the Lange-Labour Government. This capture of the public state was orchestrated for the purposes of facilitating a hostile corporate takeover of the New Zealand economy, so it could be transformed into a Switzerland of the South Pacific Utopia.[1]

Neo-Colonial Corporate Takeover: New Zealand was mangled in the 1980s and 1990s by a stealthily implemented shock doctrine economic warfare framework.

By Snoopman, 18 November 2018

 

The implementation of a Shock Doctrine economic warfare framework includes a 34 year-old hidden state policy of structural unemployment,[2] a rapid transfer of the New Zealand Tax Herd-funded state assets into private consortiums,[3] and a deepened incursion into households of the debt based monetary and credit manufacturing system that was formalized during the Masonic New Zealand Wars.[4] ‘Free market’ economic shock therapies – which included mass lay-offs in the public and private sectors, deep cuts to public services in the provinces and individualized employments contracts – were implemented with callous rapidity. The shock treatments were, therefore, mechanisms of coercion, because all sectors of society were thrown into crisis through strategic sabotage of industries.

World Super-Government Specialists: A multi-year study group dubbed the ‘1980s Project’ stealthily designed a blueprint for the incremental privatization of government at the Council on Foreign Relations think-thank.

The impetus for this re-set of the New Zealand Realm and the rest of the world came from the then-North Atlantic Capitalist Class, who faced several major crises in the mid-to-late 1960s. These calamities were a structural crisis of Declining Profit Rates for transnational and state-located corporations, a Crisis of Democracy presented by the numerous 1960s Peoples’ Movements and demands from a Developmentalist Movement in the ‘Third’ and ‘Second World’ countries for Western technologies in fair return for the resources supplied to rebuild Western Europe and Japan following WWII. The North Atlantic banking dynasties that owned the Federal Reserve needed to reinvigorate the FED dollar that was backed by the U.S. military. To counter these crises, the North Atlantic Capitalist Class developed a ‘free market’ economic warfare framework to transform the world, as the documentary Requiem for an American Dream shows.[5] This ‘imperial brain trust’ blueprint – dubbed the ‘1980s Project’ – was first formulated between 1971-1973 at a New York-based global policy-shaping think-tank, the Council on Foreign Relations, as Laurence Shoup and William Minter revealed in their 1977 book, Imperial Brain Trust: The Council on Foreign Relations and United States Foreign Policy.[6] Key insiders at the Council on Foreign Relations planned the spread of ‘free markets’ by exploiting Chicago University professor Milton Friedman’s modus operandi of ‘speed, suddenness and scope’. These economic shock therapies were field-tested on countries such as: Brazil in 1963, Indonesia in 1965, Chile and Uruguay in 1973 and Argentina 1976 using US-backed military violence to destroy the Developmentalist Movement, as Naomi Klein showed in her 2007 book, The Shock Doctrine.[7] However, the key insiders of what I call a Rockefeller-Kissinger-Bilderberger Nexus knew they needed a scheme layered with subterfuge to gain the submission of governments worldwide, because brutal CIA-backed assassinations, coup d’états and military juntas everywhere would blow their cover.

To this end, a May 1973 secretive Bilderberg Foundation meeting on the island resort of Saltsjöbaden, owned by the Swedish Wallenberg banking dynasty, discussed the impacts of ramifications to oil price shocks in the pipeline.

The 84 Bilderberg Foundation participants included:

Lord Greenhill, chairman of British Petroleum; Sir Eric Roll, of S.G. Warburg Bank; Giovanni Agnelli of Fiat, Italy; Henry Kissinger, US National Security Advisor; Zbigniew Brzezinski, who later co-founded the Trilateral Commission with Bilderberg stalwart David Rockefeller; Marcus Wallenberg, banker of Sweden; banker Baron Edmond de Rothschild of France and Bilderberg Chairman, Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands.[8]

Walter Levy, who was a New York-based oil consultant and who during World War II headed the petroleum section of the Office of Strategic Services, forerunner of the CIA, delivered a paper on oil.[9] Levy presented a scenario wherein the world faced serious challenges to managing the world’s energy consumption, capacity for supply and control of resources, particularly as they related to the potential to “undermine the world monetary system.” Another participant, James Akins, who was a White House and State Department energy expert, estimated that future energy prices would be in the range of FED$10-$12.50 a barrel.[10] In September 1973 oil was FED$2.59 and jumped to FED$11.56 per barrel in January 1974.[11]

Committee for NATO: The secret meetings of the Bilderbergers have been deliberately suppressed by major media outlets.

The ‘Dark Prince’ – Henry Kissinger – hatched the idea of supplying U.S. manufactured arms to ‘client states’ to serve America’s imperial aims, and thereby reinvigorate the Federal Reserve’s embattled dollar. In a May 1972 meeting in Tehran, Mohammad Reza Pahlavi – better known as the Shah of Iran – was induced to buy American Made™ weaponry by President Nixon and Henry Kissinger. But the Shah of Iran lacked the cash. The Rockefeller-Kissinger-Bilderberger nexus worked out that they needed a trigger event that would work as a cover for the Shah of Iran to hike oil prices so that he could afford his military spending. Kissinger, with the assistance of ‘back channels’ in London, orchestrated the Yom Kippur War of October 1973 by deceiving the Egyptians, Syrians and Israeli’s about one others’ agendas. The House of Saud’s King Faisal had already expressed his displeasure to Kissinger and other U.S. officials about U.S. armaments supplies to Israel, and warned of an OPEC oil embargo.[12] U.S. intelligence confirmed a build-up to war was underway, and with the Dark Prince playing Ares, the Greek mythical God of War, Egypt and Syria were manipulated into invading Israel on October 6 1973.

Key insiders from Washington, New York and London had correctly calculated that Arab oil-producing countries would react to U.S. support of Israel in the war by imposing an oil embargo on the United States. The ensuing oil embargoes on the US and the Netherlands (since Rotterdam was a major oil port for western Europe) and the resultant increases in oil prices, meant that the much of the world was forced to pay 400% more for petroleum, which was traded in U.S. dollars, amid the apparent oil scarcity. Conspicuously, the Shah of Iran ‘boycotted the boycott’ and increased oil output to the U.S. and British ports to counter the ‘scarcity’. In turn, this meant that Wall Street banks and most especially Rockefeller’s Chase Manhattan Bank, made enormous profits from ‘Petro-Dollars’. Chase Manhattan Bank was the Iranian government’s bank, as well as the bank of the National Iranian Oil Company and the Shah’s family bank, and the Pahlavi Foundation’s bank.

Amid rapidly rising oil prices in 1973-74, an inflationary period ensued around the world. In his book, A Century of War: Anglo-American Oil Politics and the New World Order, William Engdahl, stated the inflationary spiral caused by the Bilderberger Nexus Oil Price Shocks of 1973-1974 resulted in the cost of energy and transportation cumulatively rose by 1300% in the six years to the end of 1979.[13] Engdahl, who found a copy of the 1973 Saltsjöbaden Bilderberg Meeting Report in a Paris bookshop, argued that the 1970s ‘energy crisis’ served as a pretext for the Wall Street-Washington-City of London Complex to increase the cost of credit to 20% (amid runaway inflation). Fed Chairman Paul Volcker achieved this 20% hike for Federal Reserve’s credit through restricting the currency supply, ostensibly to control inflation, as the documentary.[14] Meanwhile, exports plummeted as families’, businesses’, governments’ purchasing power dropped, production costs for all countries soared, and states ‘borrowed’ from the central banks’ central bank, the IMF, because tax revenues fell as exporters’ sales sunk and whole economies stagnated. When combined with the underlying Bilderberg Nexus-induced economic crisis, a world debt crisis emerged as interest costs on IMF emergency ‘loans’ soared in this epic strategic sabotage of industry. This is how and why an epic debt bubble blew into the ‘World Debt Crisis’ of1982.

In keeping with the anti-competitive behaviour of cartels, Henry Kissinger explained that the U.S. was seeking to “create a world price for oil”, according to former U.S. Air Force Colonel L. Fletcher Prouty who heard Kissinger say this at one session of a U.S. Federal Staff Energy Seminar (which evidently ran for four years).[15] This four-year long ‘Energy Seminar’ followed a Ford Foundation-sponsored three-year study, the Energy Policy Project, begun in December 1971 by McGeorge Bundy, who was a mentor of Kissinger at Harvard University. Thus, the ‘deep state’ oil price shocks laid the groundwork for further ‘free market economic shock therapies’, which were themselves mechanisms of coercion, because all governments and sectors of society were thrown further into crisis. Everyone suffered, except key insiders, who became richer and accumulated more power – economically, politically and militarily.

In this way, key deep state players – who belonged the global policy-shaping think-tanks such as the Bilderberg Group, the Council on Foreign Relations and the Mont Pèlerin Society[16] – were able to inflict Shock Doctrine economic warfare globally. Another think-tank, the Trilateral Commission, was established in 1973 and tasked to formulate policies, strategies and tactics to deal with what was termed a Governance Crisis. The Elite planners resolved to encourage political apathy, as this ‘governance crisis’ literature of this period makes evident.[17] From their perspective, there was a ‘Crisis of Democracy’ because there was too much participation from ‘below’.[18] In their loyal work for the Anglo-Swiss-American Oligarchies, the North Atlantic Capitalist Class advanced what the Bilderberg Group-mouthpiece, The Economist magazine,[19] called the “counterrevolution”. This epic political conspiracy – that was, in fact, a manifestation of spectacular power.

For the rest of the 1970s – and in coordination with their British counterparts – global policy-planners in Gotham City wrote scholarly papers, held seminars and work-shopped their ‘1980s Project’ to re-assert the dominance of the then-North Atlantic Capitalist Class. The Council on Foreign Relations members, and their counterparts, intended to re-invigorate the United States of America’s dominance over the world by exploiting speed – a necessary component used to capture control of political spaces through the collapse of time. Their modus operandi was to engineer sudden fast-moving events broad in scope to overtake the deliberative processes of the public state, overwhelm citizenries in their efforts to mobilize counter-forces and coerce the capitulation of public and private sector institutions. As shown in the documentary, The Spider’s Web: Britain’s Second Empire, when Britain ceased being a colonial power after WWII, the privately owned municipal City of London Corporation adapted to become a financial power by creating a web of secrecy jurisdictions where wealth could be hidden in offshore islands.[20] Via this Neo-Colonial system, wealth was captured from across the globe, so that control over former colonial jurisdictions could be regained and retained by stealth, and beyond public state scrutiny.

Indeed, once a country is captured by Neo-Colonialists, a dynamic is set in motion that compels neighbouring countries to adopt the Neo-Colonial framework to construct a New World Order Utopia with Police super-states.

Developmentalist Leaders: Both presidents were pro-development, as historian Anthony Chaitkin explores in a video interview, “JFK vs Empire”.

New Zealand appears to have political independence but is, in fact, one of world’s 200-odd countries that have been absorbed, to varying degrees, into this stealthy Global Neo-Colonial paradigm. As the former President of Ghana, Kwame Nkrumah found while making a PhD study of African countries that had won nominal independence, Africa’s resources, banks and financial systems of Africa were still controlled by a vast monopolistic network of North American and European dynastic families, corporations and their inter-linked representatives. Nkrumah wrote in his 1965 book, Neo-Colonialism: The Last Stage of Imperialism, that though a Neo-Colonial state had the outward appearance of international sovereignty, the political apparatus took external directions because its economic resources and financial systems were controlled from the outside. Nkrumah’s findings some 58 years ago shine valuable light on the impetus for the re-set of world in the 1980s – including New Zealand in 1984 – with the deployment of the ‘free market’ economic shock treatments. This re-set with a ‘market economy’ framework was like a Formica finish that hid the shitty custom-wood materials: Neo-Colonialism.

The deployment of the Shock Doctrine economic warfare framework in New Zealand was driven from overseas, through a network of think-tanks. These included the Mont Pèlerin Society, the New Zealand Business Roundtable and the Tasman Institute.

In the mid-1980s, merchant bankers Michael Fay and David Richwhite shared with investors their utopian vision for New Zealand: a ‘Switzerland of the South Pacific’.[21] In late 1986, the pair floated a company called European Pacific Banking Corporation that was based in the wealth secrecy haven of Luxembourg.[22] The trajectory they set to transform New Zealand into a financial secrecy haven favourable for undead banking consortiums is still alive.

Reflecting a Switzerland of the South Pacific Vision? Merchant bankers Michael Fay and David Richwhite talked in the mid-1980s of transforming NZ into a Switzerland of the South Pacific, or a foreign exchange capital. Roger Douglas bragged in a private conversation in 1986 that there would be a top strata of wealthy and in 25 years most New Zealanders would not be able to afford to live in NZ.

 

Brazenly, Lange Labour Government Finance Minister Roger Douglas, who was falsely credited with being the ‘architect’ of the economic shock therapies, bragged in a private conversation in 1986 that the idea behind the ‘free market’ reforms was to transform New Zealand into a Switzerland of the South Pacific. Douglas said a top strata of super-wealthy would rule and in 25 years time, most New Zealanders would not be able to afford to live in N.Z.[23]
