Ladies and Gentlemen,
It's good to be back. It's been a long enough time since I last blogged. For those who know me I'm back, older, wiser, smarter, tougher than before.
Unfortunately it is not on the best of terms that I return. Things in this world are changing, and I firmly believe that soon, life as you know it will be no more. I didn't want to believe what I have learned, but I can no go on longer simply ignoring the facts.
For this reason, I choose to share those facts with you, perhaps in the vain hope that we can still avert the coming darkness.
I am not a particularly religious man, but may God stand between us and those who would seek our destruction. Whatever spiritual reality exists, it may well be our only hope.
1. The Men behind the Curtain
Without venturing too far into the realm of the baseless accusations of the conspiracy theorist, I open by telling you that all is not well in modern western society, and all of it seems to point to the central banking system that is now in place in virtually all of the world's nations. What this means, and what most people don't realize is that you do not own a single dollar in your bank account. Not even a penny. All of your money is owned by the central bank of your country of citizenship, and not by you.
Now most people won't believe this without proof, so let me supply some.
Here is a photo of an American five dollar bill:
Notice anything? No? How about at the very top of the bill?
Had you noticed this?
This is a sample picture of a Canadian five dollar bill:
Had you noticed this?
I don't even have to zoom in for my British example.
But aside from marking all of a country's paper currency as the property of the issuing nations central bank, what does this mean exactly?
A central bank is normally tasked with minting the money for its country as mandated by that country's government. But a central bank is not part of that government; a central bank is typically an entity which is entirely independent of the government that it works for, and it does not provide its services for free.
Have you ever wondered why so much attention is payed to a country's interest rate? Why would an institution which can theoretically print as much money as it wants need to collect interest?
Central banks operate entirely on the basis of collecting interest on money that they print and loan to people!
"...established British school of economics in which the Government borrowed hard money (gold and silver) from private banks at interest, and it was viciously opposed by the British banking interests for this reason." (Emphasis added)Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Currency_Act
In other words, when a central bank issues currency as mandated by a countries government, it does so at a variable rate of interest, which the bank controls. Every single unit of currency in any modern western country is owned by a central bank loaned at interest. It's virtually guaranteed that every dollar in your bank account has actually been loaned to you by your country's central bank at a rate of interest and for the privilege of holding onto that dollar and using it as you need, you owe your country's central bank a certain additional percentage, currently 4.5%! And worst of all, you can only repay this debt by getting more money from your country's central bank, for which you will also owe interest!
The only possible result of this system, is debt for a country's population, and profit for those who control the central bank.
Short of using force, no person or government becomes capable of stopping the endless cycle of debt. Even just by accepting a country's currency, government use alone places a burden of debt onto a country's population. And this is at the heart of many of events that you see happening every day around you; in order to perpetuate their power, those who control the central banks need to immunize the institution of the central bank from using force to bring down the system.
So who are these men behind the curtain? I don't know. Like every other conspiracy theory, I can't prove who these people are. I have my ideas, and after reading this you probably do too.
What it is important to realize is that these people essentially have no power. You and easily steal their power, simply by loosing faith in your country's currency.
Currency is a funny idea, because it doesn't really exist anymore. Currency used to be linked to precious metals. A certain amount of any given of currency used to be guaranteed to be worth a weight of gold. But in order to manufacture people's acceptance of their power, it became necessary for the men behind the curtain to abolish the gold standard, which was done in the 1930's. Now, a unit of currency isn't really linked to anything. There's no guarantee at all, that one dollar today will buy the same of anything as one dollar tomorrow. By divorcing people from the idea that currency had to be tied to a physical substance, the men behind the curtain could influence the people to exchange their labor providing services to the central bankers without any sort of real compensation-slavery. But since people would never allow this form of overt slavery, the men behind the curtain would need to compensate their slaves in some way. Without a gold standard, or any guarantee of value people are compensated with nothing but valueless paper money, which by way of being loaned to people for interest, guarantees additional services, by forcing the wage-slave to exchange yet more labor for more money, and more interest; ultimately producing a system of wage-slavery which does nothing but perpetuate its self, and force people to labor endlessly only for the benefit of an elite few.
And thus, slavery. The endless legal exploitation of entire nations, for the endless benefit of those few in power.
Unless of course, the slaves just stopped working, and stopped using the currency.
A fatal flaw in the system. The lynch-pin of it all, is nothing more than your continuing, uninformed consent.
Since those in power created and control the system, they don't need a contract to keep you compliant with their aims; they only need to keep you uninformed and unaware of their machinations, and you are in effect granting defacto consent to your own slavery!
Faced with the possibility that large numbers of people armed with with little more than a critical mind and the proper facts behind the issue, could theoretically unplug from the matrix and draw back the curtain, laying bare the awful truth, the men behind the curtain have invested very heavily in producing systems, institutions, and practices which have a single goal: to keep you unaware, and thus compliant.
And that is the topic of our next discussion. Next time, I will discuss some of the tactics that those in power use to keep you quiet, distracted, submissive and therefore, compliant.
