Night Cap: Presidential Candidate Asks an Extra-Terrestrial for Advice on War, Food Shortages, etc. – JP


Mary Maxwell: Hello ET, I have never interviewed an Extra-Terrestrial before. In fact, it’s difficult for me to believe that there are creatures out there who are somewhat like humans.

ET: Please feel free to express your doubts; that way, we might win over more readers.

Mary: To be honest, ET, I haven’t any desire to prove your real existence. I just want to tap your intellect.

ET: Shoot.

Mary: Let’s start by discussing overpopulation. What do you think is an ideal number of humans to be occupying the Earth at any given time?

ET: To answer that, I would need to know what kind of resources the Earth has. You humans eat food three times a day, right?

Mary: I eat three meals a day, but I live in a city where it has always been easy to get employment, and thus money to buy food. Elsewhere on the globe there are some very poor people who strive to get one meal a day.

ET: How much agricultural land does your planet have?

Mary: There is plenty of land space, but fertile soil is on the decline. A few decades ago, we switched from family farms to “Big Ag.” It looks to me that the big corporations lack planning for the future. They don’t take care of the soil.

ET: How do your three meals get from the farm to your dining table?

Mary: Long-distance transport is involved, usually by truck, so I am worried that a gasoline shortage may cause me to go hungry.

ET: What may cause the gasoline shortage?

Mary: I recall that in 1973, there were fights at the pumps, as gasoline was hard to get. This was explained by international decrees from OPEC — Oil and Petroleum Exporting Countries. Most of those were in the Middle East. Today, however, the decision to curtail supply might be made simply to cause starvation.

ET: Besides growing the food and delivering it to people, what else made you ask about overpopulation?

Mary: Well, I’d get ‘crowned’ for bringing it up — it’s politically incorrect. But here it is: I think we are not able to manage a huge population. We are not cut out for it. Humans need small or small-ish communities.

ET: Ah, I see I went off on a wrong track, responding to your query about an ideal population by treating it as resource-related.

Mary: No, wait. The resource problem will come back into it. I have in mind the way a large group breaks into two “enemies.” Probably, that happens because someone wants it to happen. Then, since we evolved for hostilities, our instinct takes over. You can see it all around you today. I think it is deliberate — it’s “policy.”

ET: Policy by whom? Wait. I can answer that myself in a general way: Policy by anyone who can gain from it.

Mary: Naturally, that is the correct answer. But now ask me what it is they will gain.

ET: I’m not stupid, Mary. I know that survival’s the thing. Those who are high enough to cause wars and to decide how the food will reach you are doing it so they can stay in the game.

Mary: Spot on, spot on. Most of my friends think the driving force is greed. But I feel sure the ones who have made it to a very high position know that the masses could turn on them. The poor buggers nowadays have to keep facing new challenges from below.

ET: I bet they face it with anything feasible to keep folks distressed. Disease, unemployment, and natural disasters.

Mary: Yes, and war.

ET: Many wars are fought to keep the weapons makers in business. Or do you think that, too, is “policy.”

Mary: I think almost everything is policy. I also think the buggers are fairly unimaginative; if a policy has been successful for them in the past, they unashamedly use it again, despite a group of thinkers having outed them for it.

ET: I suppose you’d agree that when Group A is fighting Group B, the real instigator of the war is Mr C, who isn’t on either side.

Mary: Yes, but that’s hard for most people to see. I found out only in the 21st century that the so-called Cold War, which ran for most of my life, was fake insofar as the two Superpowers were in cahoots. It first came to my attention from Antony Sutton’s book “National Suicide.”

ET: It was a rather ingenious thing. The real bosses who ran both the US and the USSR were able to commit all sorts of violence in the Third World on the premise that “we, the good guys, had to prevent a takeover by Commies” or “by capitalists” if you were on the other side.

Mary: Perhaps even more ingenious is the ability of the “World Economic Forum” to infiltrate all parliaments. You will have heard Klaus Schwab say, on a microphone, that he is pleased to have put some ministers into Trudeau’s Cabinet.

ET: Probably the key to false wars In America is that Congress is so infiltrated, or the Reps are so intimidated by their handlers, that they refuse, outright, to follow the Constitution, which plainly says that only Congress, not a president, can declare war.

Mary: Oh yeah. I have filed two lawsuits against presidents for disobeying the rules, but the courts refuse to be the arbiter between the Legislature and the Executive.

ET: How is it not the Judiciary’s job to uphold the Constitution?

Mary: Beats me. Hmm. You could probably push me right over into saying that the judges work directly for the same bosses as do Congresspersons and the occupant of the White House.

ET: Shall we get back to the food issue?

Mary: Frankly, Sir, I get back to the food issue three times a day. Do you recall a few months ago that there was an “outbreak” of disasters at food-processing plants? The media managed to report each instance as unrelated to the others. We certainly did not see the government stepping in to thwart this trend. So, yes, there must be a plan in the works to put us all on a “diet.”

ET: Earlier, you hinted at a connection between the planned food shortage and our need to live in small-ish communities.

Mary: Think of it this way. In New Hampshire, where I live, the libertarians push the ideal of freedom. Who could disagree? To live life the way you choose is a great thing. Several generations back in New Hampshire, you’d be in a small community that could decide how to grow and sell food. But right now, in a city such as Concord, NH, or Manchester, people must get food from a supermarket. That entails kowtowing to BigAg, even if it’s not a visible kowtowing.

ET: So where is the ability of citizens to influence the government to change that?

Mary: It’s bigger than a breadbox, ET. Today, the folks shopping in a Manchester supermarket get their salary from a business that may also be hopelessly big. If I waved a magic wand and said, “Let those big companies collapse,” the Manchester folk might go foodless. That’s why I asked for your opinion about population size.

ET: So you don’t really mean “What Is Earth’s carrying capacity?” “How many people can be supported by Earth?”

Mary: Well, that too. We have been swept into modern life in, say, a mere four centuries since the Mayflower. And swept further into an economic whirlwind since the computer became widely used in the 1980s. As an individual, I enjoyed many benefits from that, including what I call “frequent-flyer syndrome. But I throw away plastic milk cartons that end up in the ocean, strangling fish. “My Type” is a heavy burden on the planet.

ET: Maybe you want me to calculate “What is the Earth’s carrying capacity for Your Type?”

Mary: Eeks! I try to avoid that morally distressing question. In 1976 I was studying environmentalism at Johns Hopkins and the teachers were excited about the September article by Nathan Keyfitz, in “The Scientific American.” I recall him noting that few people in India had washing machines, but if it came, that would be a big drawer of water (about 25 gallons per wash). I’m sure I hoped they wouldn’t get washing machines, despite it being a “must have” in my own dear life.

ET: India did then get washing machines. That also put paid to the occupation of the “dhobi’s” who did a sort of door-to-door laundry service, washing shirts in the river.

Mary: If you can focus on only one country, you could say, “The carrying capacity of India is such that a move towards washing machines should be curtailed.” Even the livelihood of the dhobis could be discussed by the community. But now we don’t have that sort of small economic community. In the US, it’s mostly Everyman for himself. This deprives us of a lot.

ET: It hasn’t deprived you of your frequent flyer hobby.

Mary: Pretty soon, I will lose such privileges. So, really, my question to you is: Can you help us come up with a plan for a more sensible life?

ET: Such a question! I suggest maybe you start by putting forth the issues you have named in a separate way (avoidance of war, provision of food, protection of the land), although caring citizens will soon see that they are connected.

Mary: Thank you. Yes, it would help to say: “Hey, what’s with the apparent plan to cause massive food shortages in the United States?” Or “Should our soldiers be rushing off to a war that Congress had no part in declaring?” But Congress stays away from such matters.

ET: This may be a good way to reveal the way Congress, the president, and judges, are not
loyal to the Constitution.

Mary: Definitely, that is a basic issue itself. In fact, if most members of government are not governing us per the parchment, then we don’t have a country. The existence of the US is the outcome of decisions made by the people precisely on the basis of that original agreement.

ET: This could be the year in which Congress largely changes hands. Steve Kirsch has laid out the “magnificent seven” members of Congress here.

Mary: Please, God, make it happen. Give peace a chance. And keep your humble servant’s three-times-a-day program in good repair. Gracias!
