Pinky’s Betrayal, America Now Anti-Globalization

Pinky and the Brain

America now anti-globalization after Pinky opts out the Brain’s mission to take over the world

20 years ago I used to sit with my children and gaze along as they watched their favorite cartoons on TV. One particular cartoon that they loved to watch was Pinky and the Brain, a cartoon about two lab rats, one a genius and the other one dumb. The dumb rat would assist the genius rat with whatever he was up to and every night the genius rat would always be up to something diabolical.

Every night the dumb rat would also ask the genius rat, “So, what are we going to do tonight boss?” The genius rat would always respond with the same answer, “Same thing we do every night Pinky, we’re going to take over the world!” The concepts within all cartoons come from the minds of adults but while the themes are designed for children, the true nature of human behavior is never hard to recognize through their simplicity.

20 years ago another movement to take over the world was also in full diabolical effect. The movement, which was cloaked in political terms like “New World Order” and “Globalization” was actually one to expand America’s Capitalist empire. The Brains behind the operation was America’s elite class, the 5% of the population who control 95% of America’s wealth. Their tool to expand their wealth and influence throughout the world was the US government along with its military and covert intelligence agencies.

The #1 problem with the rich is they always want to get richer. Globalization therefore meant cheap labor and higher profits at the expense of “Pinky” (white working class America). Through Globalization, the US government enticed foreign countries into Trade deals that exposed those country’s economies to takeover from large US corporations.

At the same time, US corporations would exploit the cheap labor markets of those countries. They moved all sorts of manufacturing jobs over seas where workers made $1 per hour instead of the $25 per hour that Unions and Labor regulators fought hard to achieve over many years.

Fast forward to 2017 and along comes an opportunist who belongs to the elite class but because he is power hungry he decides to become “Pinky’s” new best friend and set about dismantling all of the “Brain’s” intricate mechanisms he had set up in his quest for world conquest. For now, the ripple effects of Pinky’s actions have mostly centered on the racial biases of Pinky but the real fight will be internal and is yet to come.

The Brain is a genius and while he may go along with Pinky’s betrayal for a while he is hard at work behind the scenes. Whatever the Brain comes up with next however, we must understand that Pinky and the Brain are both rats so not much will change for the rest of us animals unless we also learn to think for ourselves.
