Babylon has many methods of warfare, not all are overtly violent. Babylon uses its loans and debt to control its former colonies through organizations like the IMF.
I am currently taking an economics course. It is basically the philosophy of "Laissez-faire" economics, where the benevolent "invisible hand of the market" guides the market to equilibrium through the forces of supply and demand. The economics textbook is written by N. Gregory Mankiw, a Harvard Professor of Economics and a former economic advisor to US President George W. Bush.
Dr. Mankiw's "10 Principles of Economics" are
1)People face Trade-offs
2)The Cost of Something is what you give up to get it
3) Rational People Think at the margin
4) People Respond to Incentives
5) Trade can make everyone better off
6) Markets are usually a good way to organize economic activity
7)Governments can sometimes improve market outcomes
8)A country's standard of living depends on its ability to produce goods and services
9) Prices rise when the government prints too much money
10) Society faces a short-run trade-off between inflation and unemployment
Mankiw also speaks about "efficiency" vs. "equity" and how there are usually trade offs between the two. He also advocates outsourcing of US jobs because it is better for the economy in the long run.
When Selassie I ruled Ethiopia, I have heard that Selassie I generally allowed a free market economy, but Selassie I still had ultimate power in the government and economy.
When the people chose barnabas and the Derg came to power, the Derg instituted a communist system, which had disastrous results. I think Karl Marx, the Marxist historian, raises some interesting points but I don't agree with communism in general. Its historical examples seem to have failed, the Soviet Union fell and China has gone partly capitalist.
The capitalist babylon system currently controls the world through its financial power and will institute the mark of the beast eventually.
That is why I and I must organize and become self-sufficient so I and I don't have to depend on babylon.
Here is a Reasoning that I found on another Forum
This is how I site the second, third and fourth seal.
I site that the second seal is talking about Hitler and Mussolini's empire and the war they brought to the world. Causing a lot of fighting and a big war with the different people of the world.
I site the third seal as Communism. They controlled and distributed the wealth of their empire. Rationing food and other things for the people. But because of communism, the European countries wanted to become self-sufficient, so they wouldn't have to depend on Russia to buy things. So the governments subsidized the farmers and they produced a lot. The European countries had mountains of butter and beef, lakes of wine and edible oil, it was too much oil and wine to consume theirself. So they needed to get it off their hand so they sold much of it to Russia and a low price. So the oil and wine was not hurt, but was plentiful. And many people say that this delayed the collapse of Communism by ten years.
I see the fourth seal as babylon, they have come to the world with death and hell. They kill with their weapons (swords). They kill with their sanctions and other forms of economical warfare that starve many nations (hunger). They kill with death by the dead concepts that they teach to others, to encourage them in various deadly matters spiritually, mentally, and physically. Their dead concepts come in many forms. They encourage numerous death mind concepts, for example, refusing the Itinuation of Life by refusing children. They also manufacture death causing products like their drugs, pollution, preservatives, pesticide, herbicides, and all their other chemicals that they distribute to the world. babylon also kills with the beasts of the Earth, which is their machinery of war made of the earth, that destroy from the land, sea and air.
