In April 2001, Palast obtained leaked World Bank documents that outlined a four step process on how to loot nations of their wealth and infrastructure, placing control of resources into the hands of the banking elite.
One of the final steps of the process, the “IMF riot,” detailed how the elite would plan for mass civil unrest ahead of time that would have the effect of scaring off investors and causing government bankruptcies.
“This economic arson has its bright side – for foreigners, who can then pick off remaining assets at fire sale prices,” writes Palast, adding, “A pattern emerges. There are lots of losers but the clear winners seem to be the western banks and US Treasury.”
In other words, the banking elite creates the very economic environment – soaring interest rates, spiraling food prices, poverty, lower standards of living – that precipitates civil unrest – and then like a vulture swoops down to devour what remains of the country’s assets on the cheap.
Just as the US State Department foresaw the Arab Spring, with some of the same people involved in the Euromaidan movement training future Arab Spring leaders how to effectively use Twitter and Facebook years before the protests began, the Ukraine uprising was also entirely predictable.
The elite is so successful at hijacking supposedly grass roots revolts and turning them into managed acts of regime change because mass civil unrest is mathematically predictable.
As Dilip D’Souza explains, “There’s mathematical research that suggests a link between food prices and the occurrence of riots. And this research has pretty accurately predicted the unrest we’ve seen in so many corners of the globe.”
Research has confirmed that when the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization’s food price index (FPI) rises above 210, unrest quickly follows in the areas of the world most affected. The most recent three countries to suffer food price hikes? Thailand, Venezuela and Ukraine.
Armed with this foresight, this is how global bodies like the IMF, the US State Department and the menagerie of western NGOs that fuel or hijack uprisings around the globe are able to seize control of the outcome.
With the IMF set to sink its teeth into yet another sovereign nation, even as Russia attempts to stir up a counter-revolution, Euromaidan protesters would do well to read up on the history of nations who sell their soul to globalist debt sharks and end up paying a heavier price than anyone could imagine.
