American history teaches the concept of manifest destiny. This is often used to characterize America's founding as racist, based on the treatment of Native Americans. But how many fur traders, miners and homesteaders were thinking about manifest destiny as they moved West? Few if any, they didn't even know what the phrase meant. Manifest destiny is the language of ruling class elites, i.e., merchant bankers and industrialists who moved common folk West like pawns on a chess board. The ruling class wanted conflict with the Indians so they could call in the cavalry and manifest their destiny. Today, Wall Street and US industrialists have set their sights on a new frontier, the emerging markets. They've partnered up with Communist China and are waging financial warfare on our Constitutional Republic. They want divided Americans to blame each other and fight over the economic crumbs left behind by free trade and the financial crisis. We're all Indians now.
