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.
