A Brief History of Greedy Men

Okay so as Pat outlined in the post below this, which you should read before you tackle this one, we're in a time of change, a time of wide political unrest, an economic system which is in peril, and on the brink of environmental change. So let's rewind, let's get to the root of the system. Where did it start? Who are these greedy white men? What do they want?

The story starts at the turn of the century; the industrial revolution was well on its way to building the system we see in place today. The first major step was the creation of the Federal Reserve Bank in America. In fact it is this form of slavery that gave birth to the American Revolution against the British. The Federal Reserve Act was put in place by a group of bankers, the companies and the men they worked for conspicuously come up throughout history.

1) Nelson W. Aldrich, Republican "whip" in the Senate, Chairman of the National Monetary Commission, business associate of J.P. Morgan, father-in-law to John D. Rockefeller, Jr
2) Abraham Piatt Andrew, Assistant Secretary of the United States Treasury
3) Frank A. Vanderlip, president of the National City Bank of New York
4) Henry P. Davison, senior partner of the J.P. Morgan Company
5) Charles D. Norton, president of J.P. Morgan's First National Bank of New York
6) Benjamin Strong, head of J.P. Morgan's Bankers Trust Company
7) Paul M. Warburg, a partner in Kuhn, Loeb & Company, a representative of the Rothschild banking dynasty in England and France

So the Federal Reserve Act passed into law in late December when most of Congress was on vacation. This was the start of the paid slavery that is glaringly apparent today. These people control the money, the one thing that profoundly impacts everybody. You have to ask yourself, why is this not in your history textbooks?

This FRA was just the ground work for global control, when it was passed there were still independently acting financial institutions which were a thorn in the side of the international bankers. So what did they do? Flooded the market with currency and loans and called them in, causing the default of banks all over America and providing a perfect buying opportunity for the rich, who all luckily pulled their money out of the stock market before the crash on October 29th, 1929. They proceeded to buy up a plethora of banking interests and corporations that were bankrupt. They have been misleading the public for years and have only accumulated more wealth and more power. So unless you're comfortable with slavery, the deaths of millions abroad in the name of our freedom, and the prospect of perpetual war for your lifetime, we have to take a stand.

How do we take a stand you ask? The only way is to read and be educated, know about the truth, know about the course of destruction we're on, know about the real world you live in, only from knowledge will we break the shackles of slavery. In the coming posts I will be posting about the CIA's involvement in wars across the world, more posts about the interests of these international bankers, and a post or two about the future.

We must look back on the lineage of the corporations and trading houses, why do the same names keep popping up? Something more is out there, and what's left of our freedom rests on the masses figuring out that we're being misled.

The Athiests Wager

This post isn't about belief or faith; it is about what we know as humans. Many of us are familiar with Pascal's Wager. For those who are not, it basically says that it is better to believe in God than not to because if he or she does exist then you will have been on the right side of the equation and enjoy eternal life, and if not, well you spend your days in the empty abyss that is nothingness. I could not disagree with this philosophical theory more, because what Pascal has done is he has simplified the issue into absolutes - now this would be fine if we lived in a world of absolutes, but we don't so the basis of his wager is flawed. Let me start by saying, I don't have a problem with religious theory, or people practicing their religion. What I have a problem with is people fighting over something that noone knows to be true because of foolish pride and blind belief. I also have a problem with others imposing their religious will on countries by marrying church and state.

There is no other subject that has provoked more emotion, debate, or bloodshed than religion. The fact that there are religious wars fought is absurd. Actually, it is true that more blood has been spilled in the name of religion than anything else in history; though oil will soon give it a run for its money. It is amazing to me that people will believe in a higher power even though they have never seen it, but will refute global warming as they see the ice melt in front of their eyes. Isn't it pure stupidity to argue over something that can't be proven? And who cares if the person beside you believes in the same thing as you anyways? What good will it do in the end? People need to get over themselves, get over their need for normalcy, and just be. Worry about the life you have NOW, rather than a life you MIGHT have LATER. So practice your religion and be proud of it. Just don't fight about it and argue about it, because hey, there might be an invisible man in the sky who cares more about your diet than your decisions, but I can guarantee you one thing - he will not enjoy a bunch of people killing in his name.

All I'm trying to say is that there are things that deserve our resources and attention that we know exist, and devoting the money and effort that people do to religion just seems a little misguided to me. So with all the religious choices out there, here is my wager: live your life as a good person, help each other and treat others as you would want to be treated (hmm I think I borrowed this one from somewhere), and any loving supreme being would have to be crazy to turn you away from eternal life because you didn't worship them or give money to the organization that endorses them. Live free and smile.

In our modern world oil is the lifeblood of our society, it powers our vehicles, our machines, and our economy. Oil companies have been reaping the profits of this lucrative resource for the greater part of the modern age. Over recent years, political instability around the world has increased and the discovery of major oil fields has declined. Thus resulting in a limited supply and overwhelming demand, making oil companies obscene profits. Though we are already past the Hubbert peak we have continued to extract oil at extremely rapid rates to feed demand of the globalized world. So as we see gas prices inch closer and closer to new records everyday, we are left at the mercy of greedy oil companies.

Finally there has been a breakthrough. A scientist out of New Jersey has stumbled upon an invention that could change the way we look at the world's energy resources. Frank Pringle from Global Resources Corp. has figured out a way to use microwaves to convert plastic back into petroleum. Knowing that plastic cannot be recycled to the same extent that paper and metal can be, this proves to be a saviour in two regards. It is good to know that the American government already has Pringle working on a project in Iraq. As always the officials in the White House seem to have their priorities straight. Anyways you can see the machine at work in this video

Though the word is limited to ten letters the concept stretches across generations, countries, and religion. Capitalism sees no laws or borders, it ceases to see humanity, it is reluctant to understand human emotion, and it chooses not to help but to pillage. It paints the world with the only colour it knows – green. It is a concept that is glorified by politicians and business men alike. I guess once you throw a suit on you also make the decision to put your morals aside, the same people who go home to their perfect wife and kids in their perfect house, go to work to take that same dream away from millions of people who live a million miles away. See what capitalism does is it exploits our needs as human beings, as long as the collateral damage is cast aside from the nightly news, as long as free press is put aside by free enterprise, then the machine that has engineered this way of life grows stronger. We live in a society that shudders at a thought bigger than the next sale at their favourite clothing store, a society where if you question the overwhelming complacency you are subjected to a labyrinth of secret prisons and even more secretive interrogation strategies. We live in a world where the biggest war criminal is also the leader of the free world, a world that rewards greed and treats compassion with contempt. Freedom doesn’t exist when others are enslaved; I no longer want to live in a world where the price of freedom is the enslavement and death of others. Though money is a concept just like any other, a thought that can be devalued by any other thought.

Admittedly it is easier to go to sleep at night without thinking that those new jeans you just bought were stitched by the fingers of children in sweatshops that are sponsored by western corporations, and yes it is an unpleasant thought to think that millions of people go to sleep at night dying from diseases we already have the cure for. It is increasingly disturbing to think that we sit idly by as so many suffer, so many struggle, so many are in strife. We need to become people again, we need to shed the shackles of capitalism, and we need to be more than a demographic, more than a statistic. It is a hard concept to grasp at first, but once we start unraveling the scrolls of history we realize that it’s unparallel from anything we’ve ever seen. We see that it is not the iron fist of a republic that has us marching to the beat of their drums, but it is the invisible hand of the free market that guides our thoughts and actions. It is a grim reality but we have to come to terms with it. The dissolving representation of the people in democracy is shocking, and if the free press still existed they would be outraged. But that’s the genius of capitalism, anything you need, you can buy, it all goes to the highest bidder. We surrender our power to politicians who are expected to lie; we put people who are expected to be filled with deceit control the most important thing in the world, our governments.

The brilliance of capitalism doesn’t end with the buying and selling of our governments, its reaches far deeper than that. We’ve managed to put a price on life, liberty, and health. We’ve managed to turn ever facet of our everyday lives into a cash grab. People no longer think of others well being, they think of how lucrative an investment is.

For thousands of years now we have been killing each other mercilessly within the shroud of allegiance, we have even turned the killing of our fellow humans into a business. The business of war is one of the most profitable businesses known to man; in fact the United States is regarded as a war economy. We continue propagating our fellow mans demise. It is impossible to like everybody, or even the majority of people for that matter, but no cause is worth dying for, no human should ever have the power to take another person’s life away. However we keep taking power from the citizens and handing it over to the governments in the name of freedom. But I ask you this, in a world where there are cameras watching your movements, where there are phone companies taping your phone calls, and where there are wars fought, how are you free? If another suffers do we not feel empathy? What makes a life in North America worth more than one in Africa?

It is a hard cycle to break, because we are educated in their schools, from very young ages we are taught to believe in this great democratic system, but belief alone does not make a system work. All the patriotism that can be conjured up at the sight of a flag cannot make the system work. We foolishly believe in the west that history will not repeat itself, that we are somehow different from the rest of the continuum of life That we will some how be absolved of our actions, but its not true, we face the same forces that every other dynasty has faced and we are gripped by the same perils that many a society have been faced with over the years. We live in a society where greed is not only rewarded it is expected. We are placed in concrete prisons in which we are gridlocked and bound. We are a product of social engineering; we have surrendered all the things that make us human, all the things that set us apart from animals. We did it all for the almighty buck. Though individually we retain those qualities, as a whole they are non-existent.

We allow ourselves to be at the mercy of money, we let it control our thoughts and actions. This is not a conscious choice it is one we inherit from our culture, greed is one of our virtues. We live in a world where corporations run healthcare, where a drugs patentability is worth more than the lives that drug could possibly save. An age where we insure our own lives, an age where you could get sued for doing almost anything viewed as politically incorrect. Every country is in debt, so who’s making the money? The people collecting the debts, the international trade houses, the select few who are the descendents, whether through blood or through stock holdings, of those who attended the Jekyll Island meetings. We are merely pawns in their high stakes games.

We are just a fingers slip away from nuclear devestation. The number of countries who have the ability to end the existence of our planet keeps growing. Wouldn’t it all be for naught if we caused our own demise? Isn’t this to much power to give any one or any group of humans?

We live in a world where capitalism rules our universe. We can throw out all the other laws in the world, we only need one. We need not transcribe the present, because the man with the most money will end up telling our story, however misconstrued, misrepresented, and flat our wrong his version is, we will have no choice because that is the power of capitalism. It will be his-story.
