As the Global French Revolution Continues on Schedule

By Lloyd Hart

Even when Daniel Moi and his supporters stuffed as many ballot boxes as they could they still could not hold back the tide of Kenyans going to the polls out of absolute frustration from watching their country's economy collapse around their ears. I am sure it was not lost on the Kenyan population that when the IMF/World Bank dictates placed upon Daniel Moi's dictatorship to charge school fees for primary education moved to 40% of children between the ages of 5 and 14 into child labor, some of whom pick the very coffee beans that go into your morning cup of coffee becoming covered in pesticides day in day out for years, that it was not lost on the Kenyan population when they could no longer support their own children and had to abandon them to the streets to fend for themselves, that it was not lost on the Kenyan population when the very land their family had been on for thousands of years was suddenly privatized and pulled out from under them into the corporate plantation to grow coffee beans that their children then picked, I am sure it was not lost on the Kenyan population that a new kind of colonialism had taken place over the last 25 years.

With the election of Mwai Kibaki as Kenya's new president also came a proclamation to abolish school fees for primary education. This one great policy change has revealed in stark contrast what the elites in many so-called developing nation's have been feeling, a slight itching and sometimes a sharp pain of the guillotine in the back of their minds for the crimes they have committed against their own populations at the behest of our leaders in the U.S. and Europe. These third-world elites know that they must give in at this time knowing that if they don't they would very well provoke a violent convulsion against them from people who are tired of being worked to death. Country after country throughout the so-called developing world are throwing up new left-wing leaders, Lula in Brazil, Chavez in Venezuela, Kibaki in Kenya etc. etc.. But regardless of how these leaders fulfill their promises to the voters that put them in power it is quite evident that the people in these so-called developing nations are taking control of their own destinies knowing full well that the intentions of the European and American corporations are diametrically opposed to their well-being. So no matter what happens, a Global People's Revolution is taking place and will not be stopped by the pathetic meanderings of a drunken foreign policy that this bankrupt group of U.S. and European conservative elites attempt to put in play in their bid for global mastery.

For well over the year now, I have been writing about the coming Global French Revolution and the beginning of the end of the American empire. I am deeply encouraged to say that my analysis of the last year of developments throughout the world have proven me correct. And that we can look forward to the collapse of the American economy within the next a decade. To many this might seem completely disastrous but to me it can possibly signify a period in our history where equity for humanity and nature are possible. But no matter how feudalism attempts to resist this global revolution they must understand regardless of whether the revolution becomes a violent overthrow or simply continues as a democratic uprising the Rand Corporation's new world order will not stand in the end. As it will be hard for the elites to adjust to a less powerful lifestyle and in some cases to a jail cell, but they must come to terms with the reality of a planet with finite resources and 6 billion people they can no longer rule.
