As oil goes through the roof and as Canada's Texas, Alberta, cheers and
celebrates, the various speculators in all of the business pages are
trying desperately to convince people that the raise in prices has
"nothing to do with supply". And I believe they are indeed correct. The
truth of the matter, according to the stats put out on oil production
indicate that indeed production is high and demand is being met-- to an
extent. It is the "fear" or rather, though execs don't like to speak of it
as such, the vulnerability of oil that is causing the spike in prices.
However, we are a very short distance from the crash that is not an if but
a when in terms of supply. This will hit quickly and will make the Ogoni
uprising, Deh Cho Dene resistance, the hurricanes in the gulf of Mexico,
and the continued attacks on petroleum infrastructure throughout Iraq all
part of the same movement to destroy imperialism.
The combination of all the global factors, making oil as a target a
worthwhile radical strategy EVERYWHERE, will soon give us the greatest
ability to manouever our undermining of this genocidal, ecocidal disaster
leading us today.
Market analysts are trying to blame hedge funds, and such perhaps might be
part of what is motivating the rising oil prices. However, what is really
doing this has to be seen far more clearly: no matter where you are,
whether in Alaska, Saudi Arabia, Venezuela, Nigeria or in Chechnya, there
is no substitute for (hyptohetically of course, for all carnivore programs
out there) economic infrastructure sabotage.
This strategy-- destroying global market stability while a dwindling
fossil fuel collapses imperialist society itself-- might seem apocolyptic,
but it might also be the best thing that has ever come our way since the
devastation of WW1 made clear the need for revolution.
And it has never been more urgent.
Random thoughts and rants for the day...
In the contradiction lies the hope.
