Council of 13 Merchandise Boasts Elite Affiliation to the Masses

Perhaps you've heard of the secretive baker's dozen blamed -- or credited, such as in the pages of Forbes, but mostly blamed by commoners -- for most anti-populist social-political phenomena of the past 100 or so years.

Due to overlap in long-term goals and commonality of the word "council" in their names, many consider the Council of 13 and the Council on Foreign Relations (FCR) to have common roots. This reflects a globalist bent that has devastated big and small communities alike by diverting jobs and job seekers to the big cities that lack the tax base necessary to support such continual expansion:

Developing rural real estate; draining the power grid; and congesting local roads, to name but a few tragedies of the commons. Speaking of stopped-up streets, here's a bumper sticker you 'd not suspect would be blatantly paraded on highways, byways, and freeways, given the Proletarian penchant for road rage over perceived injustices:

You may have one, too, as an elitist embellishment of your Palooka Mobile! Or if you don't want to remove the adhesive-held backing from such an unusual item, then use that glossy graphic as a bookmark to hold your place between reading sessions.

You read a lot of nonfiction, correct? That's what the elites do -- they need to keep tabs on not only current events (online news from around the world) but also retrospectives of history and science that reveal the trajectory of global development. And how damning the change can be!

Globalism as a Destructive Force That Trickles Up

As Charles Kelly explains in the seminal book The Great Limbaugh Con, the urban contradiction between jobs creation and reduced per capita tax receipts is because economic developers -- such as the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) -- persuade mayors, council members, and other civic leaders to waive taxes on the biggest businesses.

Ironically, these multinational firms can most afford to pay a larger share of community services -- but are kowtowed to, because they threaten to "site shop" until the municipalities race to the bottom in terms of demands for non-job investment through property, value-added, and local income taxes.

The worker rush means people outstrip jobs and housing, which in turn results in conclaves of people unable to afford housing or stay off welfare. However, foreign migrants or "guest workers" cheat because foreign labor brokers pay their transport and lodging!

When occurring with the aforementioned reduction in corporate taxes, the result of domestic "move for work" migration (of U.S. citizens) is greater strain on infrastructure and greater demand for publicly subsidized social services, but without adequate forthcoming revenue to sustain actual influx of workers and their families.

A lack of affordable housing results in ghettos and crime: Rundown apartments and former tract houses, where the biggest aspiration a youngster can have is to tack a Council of 13 poster to his bedroom wall and hope he's chosen at random to be an honorary member of the elite.

These problem areas of unsubstantiated hopes for a mediocre modicum of the American dream tend to discourage business development; because no one wants to hire the segment of unemployed people who mostly live in relative poverty without reliable transportation! (Not counting the bus line, of course, but that also spreads crime.)

The converse of this situation is that better-off workers generally won't commute to dangerous parts of the city. This means knowledge-intensive businesses won't set up shop in economically depressed areas, just the same as labor-intensive industries are loathe to site new space in the so-called "economic development zones" (i.e. where mostly poor people live) unless they get a bunch of tax obligations forgiven (and sometimes a locked parking garage for the fearful executives, i.e. plant manager, accountants, and HR staff).

Although small communities are hurt less because their inability to match the tax concessions of the larger cities, they also suffer because capital-intensive facilities are then under-utilized. What used to be seen as a wise allocation of resources becomes a misappropriation when market forces cleave the population, thereby disrupting the tax base and potential for patronage.

The most prevalent indicator of negative market externalities is when shuttered shops line what used to be a bustling downtown district. Although some businesses sank into mediocrity when their proprietors passed away or sold the business -- see Candy Man on Main as a textbook example from West Bend, WI -- others were very service-oriented and offered the best margins they could for their limited economy of scale.

They were abandoned by customers due to the generation gap in patronage: Younger consumers felt less loyal to locally owned businesses than they did to their own wallets bottom line, irrespective of the broader social consequences (rampant business closure) that can only be imagined until they happen to someone they know.

You Can Take Any Opportunity You Want, But None of Mine!

Worker migration hurts people everywhere because each migrant loses social capital. Although universities claim graduates need to relocate to get high-paying jobs, no directions are given as to where to relocate; how to finance such relocation; or how to befriend those within the new community who are already settled in their lives and not looking for new friends.

"Not looking for new friends?!? That sounds antisocial!"

Correct; the elite already possess every inroad towards connecting with the right people, and you ain't one of them! However, you can get the last laugh by mocking the very people who claim to own you.

"Just how might I do that?!? They already control the product supply, right?"
