German Military Think Tank: “Peak Oil” Could Destroy Democracy

Comment: A German military think tank projects major changes in German and world political developments precipitated by “Peak Oil.” As discussed in FTR #’s 506, 534, “Peak Oil” is a monopoly gambit by the petroleum industry being used to justify the imposition of Nazi-style, political totalitarianism.

“‘Peak Oil’ and the German Government: Military Study Warns of a Potentially Drastic Oil Crisis” by Stefan Schultz; Spiegel Online; 9/1/2010.

Excerpt: A study by a German military think tank has analyzed how “peak oil” might change the global economy. The internal draft document — leaked on the Internet — shows for the first time how carefully the German government has considered a potential energy crisis.
The term “peak oil” is used by energy experts to refer to a point in time when global oil reserves pass their zenith and production gradually begins to decline. This would result in a permanent supply crisis — and fear of it can trigger turbulence in commodity markets and on stock exchanges.
The issue is so politically explosive that it’s remarkable when an institution like the Bundeswehr, the German military, uses the term “peak oil” at all. But a military study currently circulating on the German blogosphere goes even further.
The study is a product of the Future Analysis department of the Bundeswehr Transformation Center, a think tank tasked with fixing a direction for the German military. The team of authors, led by Lieutenant Colonel Thomas Will, uses sometimes-dramatic language to depict the consequences of an irreversible depletion of raw materials. It warns of shifts in the global balance of power, of the formation of new relationships based on interdependency, of a decline in importance of the western industrial nations, of the “total collapse of the markets” and of serious political and economic crises.  . . .

  1. Hello Dave Emory,

    I have made a search on your site about chemtrails and, correct me if I am wrong, but there is nothing on that. You have covered other topics related to the environment, like the Green Party, the Peak Oil hoax here mentioned, and so forth. I was wondering if, by any chance, you had any hints about the discourse and reality concerning what has been known as the chemtrails, produced by jets. Any connection to the Third Reich, Cia, Big Corporations, etc?

    Thank you and keep on fighting.
