The Four Money Questions Update 12/16/2011


    Now, the world gets down to a real game of hardball. We are seeing the contrast between what real money can do, and all of the things that fiat currency can’t do. People say it works like money, so it must be money. In reality, it doesn’t work like money. Fiat currency, specifically Federal Reserve notes, are borrowed into circulation. The interest on the transaction guarantees that the debt can never be repaid and retired. Adding insult to injury, the Federal corporation exchanges U. S. Treasury bonds for the currency. Those also must be paid at interest, by the taxpayers. U. S. citizens consent to the Federal corporation to write bad checks, in their name. In the days of real money, before 1964, the current monetary practice would have been fraud. It still is, but as shareholders in the Federal corporation, U. S. citizens are all participating in the same crime. This brings us back to square one. When the just reward for their deeds is meted out, U. S. citizens will have earned every bit of the poverty that they paid for.

     The world is coming down to crunch time. It is not a matter of opinion. Choice of money is choice of law. If people say that Federal Reserve notes, fiat currency is money, they have chosen a false and unjust system of weights and measures. They will stay in Babylon. They will partake of her sins, and they will receive of her plagues. The rich men of the earth will drink of the cup of her fornication. In one day, this system will fall, and great will be the anguish of torment.

Purpose Driven Defects: Community Stability?


Purpose Driven Defects

Community Stability?

I’m sure everyone has seen situations that never got the attention that they should have. In the situations I’m about to describe, I’m sure that the people are long gone and statutes of limitation have run out. The biggest cracks in the system are sometimes the people in it. The hypocrisy in these situations devour communities

The message for today is clear. The issues left to government come back to bite communities. It is a most troubling aspect of human nature that the group mentality of a community is inclined to stay frozen in it’s tracks, saying and doing nothing. The Founding Fathers were right. People suffer corruption and abuse, so long as the wrongs are sufferable. In many cases, people are willing to live with knowledge of official malfeasance in office, fearing retribution and retaliation. This is how Hitler avoided dying a starving artist. The seed of genocide is always waiting to sprout in the soil of perversion of justice.

Communities generally sit on powder kegs, hoping the fuse never gets lit. Sometimes the static generated by the tension in the air sets it off. Regardless, when change comes, a community can never go back to the way it was. When the people move on and the cracks are patched, everyone breathes easier. The community survives to cope with the guilt of letting it happen.

When 3 businessmen and a police officer conspire with organized criminal interests to bring a pyramid scheme to a community, the undercurrent of broken trust floods every street.As the situation festers, social structure becomes increasingly dysfunctional. When official statements deny that any such activity is taking place, that is the end of credibility. The best that can be said is that such corruption is short-lived. Unfortunately, the memory is not.

What happens when a drug dealer has photographs of police officers using cocaine? The best interests of the community are ignored. Whatever hope that parents had for their children is threatened. The helpless feeling that engulfs the community is crippling. Everyone knew who the bad reputations were. Everyone looked the other way.

In all of these situations, community members don’t believe that they are involved or responsible. In these situations, inaction is a component of the process. If community members are not responsible, why do they end up paying for it?

Recounting embarrassing details of events long dead and gone may seem pointless. To some, that may be. Of greater importance are the national and global issues that people waive responsibility for, and express helpless compliance to. These things are done in their name, by their legal authority and with their consent. Washing hands didn’t work for Pilate, and it won’t work for the United States.

“People stand silent in the presence of corruption, to fall back in the small comfort of passionate defense of virtue they should have displayed, before the fact.”

Legal Reality Newsletter 7/7/2011


7 July A.D. 2011

The article below is by R.K. Blacksher.  It was posted 5 July 2011.  In the link at strike-the-root.com, he lists his occupation as “Drone.”  Creative, anyway.

This author prefers Pat Shannan’s lesson in the matter.  The term “constitution-ist” is the proper description of one who supports, promotes a/the “constitution,” as contrasted with the term “constitution-al-ist,” which is one who supports a/the “constitutional,” which term IS a noun, and, in some parts of the country, that noun refers to the function of the last part of the alimentary canal.  What Blacksher is saying, in his way, is that there are no political solutions.

Here is the very last concept in this piece:  “People cannot free themselves if they do not believe they are enslaved. People need to stop trying to free themselves through politics and start trying to free themselves from politics.”

Clearly, Blacksher does not yet understand, completely, the nature of the problem, because slaves have zero authority to obligate themselves or their property commercially.  It’s precisely because there is NO slavery that the present “funny money” system “works.”  Said another way, involuntary bondage had to go in order for it to be replaced with our present condition of voluntary bondage.

Slaves can’t get credit cards or open retirement accounts or purchase land or cars, etc.  Only those with the legal capacity to enter into agreements may engage in even the basics of commercial activity. In the same way that children and medically incompetent people have no “capacity” to bind themselves commercially, slaves have no capacity to bind themselves commercially.

Where one finds few legal remedies for involuntary bondage, given that such law exists in a society that finds it moral and acceptable for one human being to “own,” as property, another human being (which concept is all throughout Scripture), one has all kinds of remedies for Voluntary Bondage.  Voluntary Bondage is the by-product of our present commercial system, in which we’re seduced, through our ignorance (unawareness) of our present legal reality, into binding, commercial obligations that are enforced in such a way as to make us think that the authority relied upon is law.  Voluntary Bondage is something over which we have 100% control.  Thus, on the flip side of that same coin, we have only ourselves to blame.

To play the game of politics is to pretend that the politicians are “the problem.”  Thus, by changing them, the problem may be fixed via a different group of politicians who will then rewrite or just “delete” the offensive, oppressive, police-state “statutes.”  Fortunately, that’s not how the present system functions.  Since no politician in any office can ever compel anyone to sign up for any “gotcha agreement,” by which we impale ourselves on the horns of Voluntary Bondage, no politician, in or out of office, is “the” problem.

“People need to stop trying to free themselves through politics and start trying to free themselves from politics.”  R. K. Blacksher.
Very well said.

One Hour Meltdown


                        One Hour Meltdown

Rev. 18:19 And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas, that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate.

Below is an article on the mechanics of how this prophecy will be fulfilled in America by a professional engineer. Worth the time to read.

——————————————————————————–

The One-Hour Meltdown
Copyright © July 22, 2009 by Robert Wayne Atkins, P.E.
All rights reserved and all rights protected under international copyright law.

——————————————————————————–

Introduction
The following is just my opinion. It is nothing more than my opinion. I have nothing to substantiate or prove any aspect of my opinion. My opinion is simply the logical conclusion of a law-abiding sixty-year old Christian grandfather who has both an engineering degree and an M.B.A. degree and who has seen both good times and hard times during his life.

The Current Situation:

At the present time every nation in the entire world is facing serious financial and social stress. If only a few nations were involved then it might be possible to contain the upcoming meltdown to a few specific geographical areas. This has been successfully done in the past. However, since the entire world is currently on the edge of the cliff, when the meltdown begins it will impact almost everyone on the face of the earth.

Unless God chooses to intervene, the meltdown is no longer avoidable. Our governments and our financial institutions are no longer in control. However, to keep the system working just a little longer they must maintain the illusion that they have the system under control. But the system is broken and it can’t be fixed.

There are two reasons why the system can’t be fixed:

It has grown beyond its own capacity to support itself.

It has become so complex that no one can do anything significant to fix it because it is hemorrhaging in too many different places.

The average person in every nation on the face of the earth knows the meltdown is coming. The wealthy people know it. The poor people know it. Nobody wants it to happen. But almost everyone is just patiently waiting for it to begin and at the same time hoping that it doesn’t begin too soon.

Nobody knows when the meltdown will actually start. It may begin one-month from now. Or a year from now. Or three-years from now.

But almost everyone knows that at some future date the meltdown will occur.

This widespread knowledge of the impending disaster is the reason that when the disaster begins it will quickly and completely spiral out-of-control in one-hour or less. In my opinion, most people do not seriously believe it could happen this quickly. Most people expect a more gradual meltdown. They may be right because nobody can predict the future, and that includes myself.

——————————————————————————–

The One-Hour Meltdown
However, my personal opinion is that once the meltdown begins then in less than one-hour it will quickly escalate far beyond anyone’s ability to control or manage it on a worldwide basis. The five basic assumptions that cause me to believe in my “one-hour meltdown theory” are as follows:

Banks: The financial institutions around the world cannot withstand a full-scale worldwide bank run. Therefore, they have already made plans to immediately shut down the instant they are told to do so. Within minutes, all across the globe, all the ATM machines will be offline, all credit card and debit card verification transactions will be halted, and all banks will have their vaults locked and their doors locked and their building emptied of all personnel, except perhaps for some special security guards. All high-level bank executives will immediately disappear to a wide variety of remote safe unknown locations. All telephone call inquiries to any of the financial institutions will be automatically answered by a computer with a pre-recorded message similar to the following: “Our system is currently experiencing an extremely high call volume and therefore we are unable to answer your call at this time. Please try again later when our call volume returns to normal.”

Governments: The vast majority of our government leaders all over the world are relatively intelligent individuals. They completely understand the ramifications of a “bank holiday” in our computer controlled financial economy. Therefore, all government offices will also be immediately shut down, and they will empty their buildings and lock their doors. Any transaction in progress, including any trials in progress, will be immediately halted and postponed until some future date. All high-level government officials, including all judges and tax officials, will immediately disappear to a wide variety of remote safe unknown locations.

Retail Businesses: Since they will be unable to process even simple transactions, all retail establishments, both large and small, will immediately lock their doors to prevent anyone else from entering. If possible, they will complete any transactions for customers already inside their building if those customers have enough cash to pay for their purchases. Any customers wishing to pay by check or credit card or debit card will be told that the verification system is down and their transaction can’t be completed. All customers will then be immediately escorted to the doors and the doors will be briefly opened and then immediately locked after they exit. In addition, in a manner similar to what happened during the World Trade Center meltdown, each store’s management may demand that their employees remain at their stations until further notice or they will lose their jobs for leaving without management’s permission. But most of the more intelligent employees will leave at the same time as the store’s last few remaining customers. The store’s special security guards may or may not remain behind in order to protect the store with their lives. Since most of these special security guards are not paid exceptionally well, a large number of them may decide that they should return home and protect their own families instead.

Criminals: Anyone and everyone who has any criminal tendencies and who has been patiently waiting for this to happen will immediately see it as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to improve their financial situation. More than likely the vast majority of these criminals have already made very detailed plans that includes exactly which businesses they are going to rob first, second, third, and so on. Any business with a reasonable level of cash-on-hand will be very high on every criminal’s list. Every jewelry store and pawn shop that has any type of silver or gold jewelry, or precious stones (diamonds, rubies, emeralds, etc.), will be very high on everyone’s list. The warfare that breaks out at these establishments between competing criminals will not be pleasant.

Normal People: Normal average people will begin looting. Grocery stores will be broken into and they will be completely emptied from wall-to-wall, including the rear storage area, in less than one-hour. Stores that have firearms, ammunition, appliances, clothing, shoes, or anything else needed by the average citizen will be emptied in less than one-hour. In skirmishes over the few remaining resources, normal average people will begin killing one another inside the stores, and in the parking lots outside the stores, and on the streets as these fully loaded vehicles try to escape with their loot.

The above events will all happen simultaneously during the first one-hour of the meltdown. After that first hour has passed, things will really begin to get nasty. Everyone will quickly realize there are not are not enough law enforcement personnel to protect everyone and everything. Although the military will probably be ordered to protect specific high priority establishments and resources, there will simply not be enough military personnel to protect individual civilians or businesses.

——————————————————————————–

Events After the One-Hour Meltdown
Almost everyone who has lost their jobs, their vehicles, their homes, and their life savings will now have nothing more to lose by seeking some form of retribution against the society that took everything away from them that they once “partially” owned.

Anyone who has received a minor speeding ticket in the recent past and who honestly could not afford the fine will be in a very unpleasant mood. Everyone who has had their property taxes increased at the same time their income decreased will not be in a good mood. Everyone who has had their credit card interest rate increased at the same time their employer was reducing the number of hours they worked each week will not be in a good mood. Everyone who has been reduced from a two-family income down to a one-family income will not be in a good mood. Everyone who lost their job because their employer went bankrupt will not be in a good mood.

The vast majority of these individuals will have been just barely surviving in a situation where they were living hand-to-mouth on government welfare or the charity of the local community (unemployment checks, welfare checks, food stamps, food pantries, etc.). The instant they realize there will be no more government welfare or charity, then these individuals will have no hope for survival unless they are able to immediately acquire the food and other resources they need before it is all gone. Anyone who tries to stand in their way, or who tries to reason with them, will have a life expectancy of less than three-seconds.

After the stores are all emptied, and there is nothing else to be stolen, the tempers of the individuals who were not successful in obtaining what they needed will turn violent. When that happens they will form into huge mobs without being asked to. And they will begin seeking vengeance on anyone or any establishment they have a grudge against. Banks, and government buildings, and courthouses will be burned to the ground. Anyone still inside those buildings will probably be shot or hanged. Then these mobs will start looking for the high-ranking officials that they believe are the source of their misery. But the vast majority of these high-ranking officials will have already disappeared to safe places unknown to anyone but themselves.

If you have not previously thought about the above, or if you are not intellectually prepared to deal with it, then the chances are not very good for your long-term survival.

If you have been waiting to buy a really critical item for your family’s long-term self-sufficiency because you thought you could buy it at the very beginning of a slow gradual breakdown of society, then it will no longer be available. Your family will have to try to survive without that item, if that is possible. Since the vast majority of us have very limited financial resources it would be helpful if you could prioritize your purchases right now before it is too late. The following article on my web site describes how this could be done:

Realistic Self-Sufficiency: The Do’s and the Don’ts.

If the meltdown begins while you are away from home then your highest priority should be to collect the other members of your family and return home. Do not be tempted to participate in the looting. Regardless of what you think you might need, it would be foolish to risk your life and the lives of your family members at any store or business that is being looted. You should consider yourself “blessed” if you are successful at making it safely home with all your loved ones.

In my opinion, after the meltdown begins it will take about 24-hours for the vast majority of the criminals and the looters to self-destruct to at least one-half of their original number. In fact, human greed will probably reduce their numbers by a lot more than 50%. The reason this will happen is because every criminal will want whatever the other criminal has in his or her possession and he or she will probably be willing to kill to get it. The criminals and looters that survive will be the more ruthless and savage members of our society and they will gradually form into small gangs for protection and for their own mutual survival. When that happens things will just continue to get worse.

If you live close to the outside edge of a heavily populated area, and you can quickly and easily get onto a good road or interstate leading away from the danger area, and if you have a safe destination already planned, and if travel to that destination does not take you through another heavily populated area, then it may be possible for you to escape to your “retreat” if you act immediately and you do not hesitate.

However, if you live inside a heavily populated area, or if you are a good distance from a safe exit road or interstate, or if you do not have a safe destination to travel to, then loading your family into your vehicle and trying to drive anywhere at this time would probably not be a very good idea. In this situation, when the meltdown begins your best chance for survival will probably be to wait out the worst part of the meltdown inside your home. You should also be prepared to defend your home and your family during this difficult transition period.

I fully realize that the above suggestion goes against almost everyone’s recommended strategy of “getting out of Dodge” (G.O.O.D) at the last minute. You are an adult and you will need to make your own decision in this matter. But before you decide, perhaps you should thoughtfully consider your chances for long-term survival in each of the following two scenarios:

Your family is trapped inside your vehicle in a traffic jam that is grid-locked and, although you don’t know it yet, the cars in front of you and behind you are not going to move one-inch for the next several years. You and your family members quickly become physically and emotionally fatigued by the long wait inside your vehicle. Everyone needs to use the bathroom. Nobody can get any real rest. And as you watch one horror story after another unfold outside the windows of your vehicle you become terrified that you will not live to see another day. You are trapped inside your vehicle many, many miles from your home and travel in any direction by foot or by bicycle at this time would be suicidal.

Your family is temporarily trapped inside your home with whatever resources you have in your home. You can still use the bathroom in the privacy of your own home. You can still eat and drink in safety. Each member of your family can sleep in his or her own bed while one or more members of your family remains awake and on guard duty. On some future date, after your family has eaten a good meal and everyone is completely rested and mentally and physically alert, then perhaps on a dark rainy night your family will be able to escape by riding bicycles or by walking out of the danger zone to some safe remote place where you already have supplies pre-positioned and waiting for you.

In my opinion, neither of the above two scenarios is a pleasant one to think about. But if I had to choose between them I would select the second option.

——————————————————————————–

Three Questions
Please allow me to ask you the following three questions:

How many people do you personally know who do not need to eat?

Where does most of the meat, bread, fruit, and vegetables that are consumed by the people inside a city actually come from?

If food deliveries into the city were stopped, how long would the city continue to be a safe place to live?

If you are satisfied with your answers to the above three questions and you still want to live in a big city then you should continue to do so. However, if you are not satisfied with your answers to the above three questions, then perhaps right now would be a good time to think about some other options for your family’s survival.

——————————————————————————–

Some Good News
Before you completely loose heart, please allow me to share some really good news with you. The meltdown hasn’t started yet. You still have time to significantly improve your family’s chances of surviving the upcoming meltdown.

Have you lost your job? That is good news. You can now relocate to a more lightly populated area.

Has the bank foreclosed on your home? That is good news. You can now relocate to a more lightly populated area.

Are you now living inside your vehicle? That is good news. If you can come up with some gas money then your can now relocate to a more lightly populated area.

You don’t need to move to the unexplored wilderness in Alaska. You don’t need to move into the heart of the Arizona desert. You just need to relocate to an area that is more lightly populated than a big city. The area you select should meet the following minimum criteria:

It is not on a major freeway or interstate.

It is at least several hundred feet above sea level.

It is surrounded by farm land, dairy cows, and other typical farm livestock such as horses, pigs, sheep, goats, and chickens.

It has a history of good average rainfall (not too much rain or too little rain).

It has a reasonable supply of trees and forest timber land.

It has a few nearby manufacturing facilities of any size.

Its residents still have the right to own firearms to protect themselves.

It has short mild winters.

You are smart. You could probably find a place like the above that is somewhere between 60 to 600 miles of where you currently live. When you get there, start looking for a new job.

At the current time good jobs are exceptionally difficult to find. Therefore, if you still have a really good job, then you would probably be better advised to keep your current job. But you could still move your loved ones to a small safe farming community that is at least 30 miles away from any heavily populated area, and which meets the first seven of the above eight minimum criteria. This would mean that you would have to commute one or two-hours each day to get to your current job. But your family would be safe when the meltdown begins. And if the meltdown occurs when you are at home with your family, then you would be there to help protect them. If the meltdown occurs while you are at work, and if you leave work immediately and don’t stop anywhere, then there would be a reasonable chance that you might get back home before 24-hours has passed. This would require that you always have at least one-half tank of gas inside your vehicle’s gas tank each day when you arrive at work. Finally, your survival would be greatly increased if you also had a little food and water, a few basic survival items, and a bicycle inside your vehicle that you could ride if you got caught in a grid-lock traffic jam. Most people will not abandon their vehicle immediately because they have an emotional attachment to their vehicle and to just abandon it would not “feel” like the most logical thing to do. The reason is because these people have survived traffic jams in the past by just waiting for them to eventually unravel. But this time it will be different. The traffic jam will never unravel. (Note: If it becomes necessary, park your vehicle on the side of the road and lock it, if that is possible.)

——————————————————————————–

Conclusion
The vast majority of you will probably not share my opinion on this topic because it is just too “scary” and therefore it just can’t happen. However, if you have taken the time to read this entire article then at least you now know about my “one-hour meltdown theory” and you can include it as one of your highly unlikely future scenarios. And if it should actually happen then at least you will not be too surprised by the events as they quickly begin to transpire.

On the other hand, if you think my “one-hour meltdown theory” is not all that ridiculous, then there are three things you could be doing right now to better prepare for the serious hard times ahead:

If you have not already done so, then move to a lightly populated area.

Pray often.

Pray sincerely.

Postscript
In order to minimize the number of future emails about the above article, on July 29, 2009 I decided to add this postscript to my original article.

As I mentioned in the above introduction, nobody can predict the future, and that includes myself.

And as I mentioned in the above conclusion, the vast majority of you will probably not share my opinion on this topic.

Instead of a “bank holiday” almost any reasonably intelligent individual could easily select a different trigger event, or combination of trigger events, that lead to the inevitable meltdown.

And, instead of a “one-hour meltdown,” almost anyone could modify one or more of the original assumptions and change the time frame to 24-hours, or three-days, or two-weeks, or nine-months, or seven-years.

However, since writing the above article seven-days ago, so far I have not received any emails from anyone who believes the meltdown will never happen. The only points of disagreement are on the trigger event and the speed at which the meltdown will unfold.

Individuals who do not believe a “one-hour meltdown” is possible generally believe that our government and financial leaders have some reasonable degree of control over the social and economic factors that are rapidly deteriorating worldwide.

And those individuals who believe the meltdown will be triggered by a different event, such as a terrorist attack (similar to the World Trade Center disaster) or a nuclear explosion in some large city, generally believe that someone or some nation must intentionally do something disastrous to initiate the meltdown.

Since I can’t predict the future I have no valid way to respond to these differences of opinion. As far as I am concerned, everyone has a right to his or her own opinion, and that includes myself.

As I stated in my article, I simply believe that our leaders do not have things under control and that a worldwide bank run could happen unexpectedly at any time, and our leaders have no way to prevent it or to contain it once it begins. It could happen on any day of the week and at any time during the day. But once it starts our leaders will immediately declare a “bank holiday” to prevent catastrophic damage to the financial system and to the reputations of our financial leaders.

May I please use the following analogy. The current worldwide financial situation is like a passenger bus being driven by a bus driver whose future employment depends on keeping to the bus schedule and maintaining the bus passengers confidence in the bus company. The bus is currently being driven down a straight stretch of highway on a really cold rainy day. But the bus is gradually picking up speed, and the temperature is quickly dropping. The bus passengers can see that ice is starting to form in different spots, and that there are some really dangerous curves just ahead. The driver calmly reassures all the passengers that he or she currently has the bus completely under control and therefore nobody should worry because the future will not be any different from the past or the present. However, the smart people on the bus politely ask the driver to stop the bus and when the bus temporarily stops, they get off the bus and they tell the driver they will walk the rest of the way. The remainder of the passengers have no desire to walk in the freezing rain and therefore the calm words of the driver helps to reassure them and they stay inside the bus as it starts back down the icy highway. The bus quickly picks up speed and then it enters the first dead-man’s curve on the edge of a 1,000-foot cliff. The entire curve is completely covered with two-inches of ice. In a matter of seconds the people still on the bus will be no more. The people who got off the bus will still be alive but their continued survival will depend on how prepared they are and whether or not they actually know how to survive in their current extremely difficult circumstances. If they are already wearing a waterproof winter coat and waterproof footwear and they have some matches and some food and water then there is a good chance they will live to see another day.

May I now please interpret my own analogy. The bus is our current worldwide economy. The bus driver represents our current government and financial leaders. The ice represents the fiat money that is currently being increased at an ever accelerating rate. The dead-man’s curve is a “bank holiday.” The people still on the bus are the ones who believe that our leaders have a lot more control over our worldwide economy than they really do, and they are leaving most of their money inside the financial system, and they are continuing to live inside a big city. The people who got off the bus are the ones who live in a more lightly populated area and they are using whatever money they currently have to purchase the things they know they will desperately need in the future.

The above article is completely theoretical. The only reason I wrote the article is to provide you with a possible future scenario that you may not have considered too seriously in the past. However, it is my personal conviction that there is an extremely high probability that our future will be forever changed by a simple unexpected “bank holiday” that results in a “one-hour meltdown” of civilization as we currently know it. And, as I mentioned in the conclusion to my original article, I already know that most of you will not share this opinion with me. And that is perfectly okay with me and I am not in the least bit offended.

Respectfully,
Grandpappy.

Photo Finish

The first decade of the new millennium has been such a whirlwind, so far, that we have to stop and ask ourselves, “What just happened?!!” Do we have any historical frame of reference to measure recent events, by? Upon examination, there are many events in our history that point to present conflicts and their outcomes.

When empires disintegrate, the forces that functioned within them don’t just disappear into thin air. Relationships and traditions float on the winds of change, like dandelion seeds. So it is, in the transition periods in the United States. If we draw a straight line from the questions of our day, back through historical records, motives and goals become clearly defined.

When have we seen the present level of regulatory corruption and commercial consolidation in our past? That would be the period 1891 through 1913. The economic structure, combined with political corruption, produced public manipulation that led to the Federal Reserve and WWI. At that point, government became the Corporatist War Machine that we see today. The seeds of subsequent wars of Corporate conquest were planted in that time period. Generations became cannon fodder to enforce the will of the central banks and exact tribute from indigenous populations. Every aspect of social and commercial activity now teaches people the anti-human compulsions of Corporatism. People are now identified and valued by their relationship within the corporate structure. Throughout history, long before there was a United States”, these practices were condemned and ended in destruction. Monetizing and numbering people is the most evil practice implemented by government. It leads to mass murder, genocide.

Last year, people failed to recognize the patterns from the 1920s & 70s. If there had been recognition, before the fact, we never would have been talking about trillions in bailouts to “stabilize” the global economy. Those prior decades identify the actions that were taken in the past year as injurious to financial stability and social continuity. Going back and reading

“War Under Heaven: The World At Commerce”

shows that I understated everything. My friends around the world were telling me that everything was worse than I said it was. In 2 trips across the country, I found that they were right. Sections of cities look like war damage. The atmosphere is different. The tension of being packed into cities, under uncertain and sometimes dangerous circumstances, wears people down.

Have we forgotten the scenes of those decades and what they led to, so quickly? The threat of hyperinflation, the resulting wage and price controls, loan defaults, the S & L failures, 23% prime rates, record unemployment, political and financial scandals …. need I go on? The jury is in, and we are judged, GUILTY. We are repeating the past. We are going down the path of social collapse, dangerous urban environments, polarizing media manipulation of public opinion, with government as petty, corrupt and self-serving as it ever was. We are being thrown to the wolves, and still don’t see it.

The present time is a turning point of U. S. history. As the Corporation has siezed the helm of the ship of state, and presumes to overrule the restraints that it AGREED to, in 1787, we are stuck with the reality that we are oppressed by a criminal organization. The United States government is Hell-bent on herding the population, like livestock. the healthcare reform debate doesn’t recognize people as living beings. We are seen as potential markets, managed assets, group cost caps, repositories for chemical cocktails and the resulting repeat sales, to address the side effects. This is the kind of human experimentation that makes war criminals of medical authorities. Credentials mean nothing in the sight of the Author of Life. The lust for power and wealth has never known satisfaction. The “American” Medical Association won’t find the goal of their obsession in Heaven.

It is interesting that legislation in the 1960s borrowed so much from wartime enemies. That illustrates that countries and leaders rise and fall, but Corporatism marches on. The public figures that rammed Nazi and Soviet laws down our throats at that time are now facing the consequences in Eternity. Will we learn from this, today? The legislation that resulted in the Patriot Act and Homeland Security is in the same spirit that produced the genocides of the 20th century, sending more than 100 million people to execution at the hands of their own governments. We are watching the disease of National Socialism run it’s course. We don’t have to be infected by it.
