In a pre-scientific society the best the common man can do is pin his faith on a leader and give him his support, trusting in his benevolence against the misuse of the delegated power and in his wisdom to govern justly and to make war successfully. It’s the only possible course when government remains an art. “In the world at large we seldom vote for a principle or a given state of affairs. We vote for a man who pretends to believe in that principle or promises to achieve that state. We don’t want a man, we want a condition of peace and plenty~or, it may be, war and want-but we must vote for a man. The leader or hero supplements a faulty science. That’s his first function-to use his head and heart where science fails. We have no need for him here. Our Planners act ~erfectly well in practically complete anonymity. 7> “But the hero has another function- Frazier continued. ‘To rally support, to accumulate power. It is the peculiar and extraordinary function of the hero-despot. The military, economic, and religious powers in the state are pledged to him through loyalty or submissiveness. A Napoleon could retain a substantial power of this sort even after being thoroughly despoiled by h’ is enemies. ” The state is power, and the hero is the state!’ What a faulty political design! It’s true that many states wouldn’t have come into existence except through the efforts of a leader. The structure is in that sense natural-but always in early forms of government. Here we have advanced beyond the need for personal figures either as specialists or as devices for holding power. “No, Mr. Castle. A society which functions for the good of all cannot tolerate the emergence of individual figures. The leader principle has always failed in the long run.
‘A modem, mechanized, managerial Machiavelli’. An artist in power,” “whose greatest art is to conceal art. The silent despot.”
I can see, you’ve blocked every path through which man was to struggle upward toward salvation. Intelligence, initiative-you have filled their places with a sort of degraded instinct, engineered compulsion. Walden Two is a marvel of efficient coordination-as efficient as an anthill!” “Replacing intelligence with instinct-” muttered Frazier.
“It’s a little late to be proving that a behavioral technology is well advanced. How can you deny it? Many of its methods and techniques are really as old as the hills. Look at their frightful misuse in the hands of the Nazis! And what about the techniques of the psychological clinic? What about education? Or religion? Or practical politics? Or advertising and salesmanship? Erin them all together and you have a sort of rule-of-thumb technology of vast power. No, Mr. Castle, the science is there for the asking. But its techniques and methods are in the wrong hands-they are used for personal aggrandizement in a competitive world or, in the case of the psychologist and educator, for futilely corrective purposes.
Social control based upon debt contracts is the financial technology that existing power structures rely upon. Sadly it would seem that far from saving the planet the objective of Green policies seems to preserve social control mechanisms through debt denominated in Carbon rather than looking at a form of added value accounting for combining energy inputs with resources to produce Essentials, or indeed to produce discretionary luxuries.
As long as the Carbon books show net zero emissions the few will continue to get richer and the many will grow poorer or expire. As the quote from Richard Dimbleby below points out this is a process ” that requires oppression.”
“those who guide Chile’s destiny have devised a pure and precise means of keeping themselves on top forever if it works. Chile has become an accountant’s paradise”
“There is another Chile, For those who accept, even enjoy dictatorship?
This elite lives well, better than ever. Their problem is where not what to eat?
The armed forces, the new upper class have high salaries, special schools, their own hospitals, and new housing estates. And their allies, able financiers, and obedient civil servants are equally at ease. And they have a reason, those who guide Chile’s destiny have devised a pure and precise means of keeping themselves on top forever if it works. Chile has become an accountant’s paradise
the regime is obsessed with balancing the nation’s books and no more. They wish the law of the jungle to prevail, that the strong should destroy the weak so monopolies grow and bankruptcies and therefore the ranks of the unemployed. The carcass of the economy is left for speculators to pick at.
Yet there is a boom in Santiago at first glance. The elite has never had it so good, the city is awash
foreign luxuries that only they can afford, How? By the export of hunger. The elite rides the slump pays starvation wages and sells cheaply abroad, earns foreign exchange buys foreign goods and the books remain in balance. The few get richer the many poorer, a process that requires oppression.”
Just as in 2008, there is concern about ‘hyper inflation’.
But the money printing is happening because of a deflationary collapse in the shadow banking system. To keep the System (somewhat) liquid. Debt service is no longer payable. Derivatives (credit default swaps) are getting busted.
Here’s some analysis of what happened in 2008, it’s relevant here too.
Deleveraging is coming, and it is going to be disastrous.
BTC will play no role in the financing of local/’agorist’ communities, as it serves to speculate, not to pay with.
Local currencies, interest-free, are what is called for in times like these. Not scarce, non-circulating trash like BTC. Or Gold, for that matter.
Living standards in the West will collapse in the years ahead. Pensioners will be particularly hard hit.
Austerity and Deflation
A Gold Standard would be an unmitigated disaster. It will lead to an excruciating deflation. Deflation is a horror for debtors, who see their debts and the interest they pay over them grow worse in real terms. And since everybody is complaining of debt so much, we might reconsider making it worse with deflation.
Winston Churchill, who was involved in the reinstatement of the Gold Standard in Britain in the twenties testified to the House of Commons in 1935, when the deflation of the Great Depression had made Gold untenable:
“Look at the enormously increased volume of commodities which have to be created in order to pay off the same mortgage debt or loan. Minor fluctuation might well be ignored, but I say quite seriously that this monetary convulsion has now reached a pitch where I am persuaded that the producers of new wealth will not tolerate indefinitely so hideous an oppression. . . . I therefore point to this evil, and to the search for the method’s of remedying it as the first, second and third of all the problems which should command and rivet our thoughts.”
Deflation destroys the economy, because people have an incentive to hoard cash, instead of using it for production and consumption.
At the start of this talk Schumacher tells a joke, it goes like this,
A Surgeon and Architect and an Economist are discussing whose is the oldest of their three profession. The Surgeon starts stating well gentlemen surely it is mine after all God when he created Adam then made Eve by taking a Rib from Adam a surgery I would say.
The Architect speaks he frowns and laughs, surely dear Mr Surgeon you must see that God at first created The World and he did this out of Chaos surely you must admit that this precedes surgery and is indeed an act of Architecture.
The Economist shakes his head and thumps the table around which they sit triumphantly. And who do you suppose created the Chaos?
”The value of goods,
expressed in money, is called “prices,” while the value of money, expressed in goods, is
called “value.” p.49 (Commercial Capitalism) Quiqqley shows how Bankers make the distinction and real power lays in the Value of money and not the prices of goods.
Money is about surplus, it is designed so that surpluses can be traded. A surplus denotes or implys that the necessary required to meet need has been satisfied.
Fundamentally this is the root of the objection to usury if we have more than we need we can donate it as it would be wrong to waste it how much we give away would depend on how much could be laid down as a store insuring against future shortages, ( every 7th year grain storage?)
Universal income proposed by Thomas paine and Napolean Bonaparte amongst others addresses the point Money and finance capitalism should only be morally permitted where all necessities are met so that only surplus is either traded or stored.
The Key International Banking Families
The names of some of these banking families are familiar to all of us and should he more so. They include Baring, Lazard, Erlanger, Warburg, Schroder, Seligman, the Speyers, Mirabaud, Mallet, Fould, and above all Rothschild and Morgan. Even after these banking families became fully involved in domestic industry by the emergence of
financial capitalism, they remained different from ordinary bankers in distinctive ways:
they were cosmopolitan and international;
they were close to governments and were particularly concerned with questions of government debts, including foreign government debts, even in areas which seemed, at first glance, poor risks, like Egypt,
Persia, Ottoman Turkey, Imperial China, and Latin America;
(3) their interests were
almost exclusively in bonds and very rarely in goods, since they admired “liquidity” and
regarded commitments in commodities or even real estate as the first step toward
(4) they were, accordingly, fanatical devotees of deflation (which they called
“sound” money from its close associations with high-interest rates and a high value of
money) and of the gold standard, which, in their eyes, symbolized and ensured these
(5) they were almost equally devoted to secrecy and the secret use of
financial influence in political life. These bankers came to be called “international
bankers” and, more particularly, were known as “merchant bankers” in England, “private
bankers” in France, and “investment bankers” in the United States. In all countries they
carried on various kinds of banking and exchange activities, but everywhere they were
International Bankers Felt Politicians Could Not Be Trusted
With Control of the Monetary System
The influence of financial capitalism and of the international bankers who created it
was exercised both on business and on governments, but could have done neither if it had
not been able to persuade both these to accept two “axioms” of its own ideology. Both of
these were based on the assumption that politicians were too weak and too subject to temporary popular pressures to be trusted with control of the money system; accordingly,
the sanctity of all values and the soundness of money must be protected in two ways: by
basing the value of money on gold and by allowing bankers to control the supply of
money. To do this it was necessary to conceal, or even to mislead, both governments and
people about the nature of money and its methods of operation.
Money Power Is More Concerned With Money Than Goods
The obsession of the Money Power with deflation was partly a result of their concern
with money rather than with goods, but was also founded on other factors, one of which
was paradoxical. The paradox arose from the fact that the basic economic conditions of
the nineteenth century were deflationary, with a money system based on gold and an
industrial system pouring out increasing supplies of goods, but in spite of falling prices
(with its increasing value of money) the interest rate tended to fall rather than to rise. This
occurred because the relative limiting of the supply of money in business was not
reflected in the world of finance where excess profits of finance made excess funds
available for lending.
The Grand Final, The Internationalists versus the Globalist Money Power
Triumph of the Beast vs. Triumph of the People
UN Agenda 2030 vs. The People
By Peter Koenig
This planned and aspired world domination by a super-rich and a super-sick elite has started decades ago, at least since WWII, probably earlier. While we could go back much further, this is just to mention a few of these open warnings within the last couple of decades.
The 2010 Rockefeller Report. It outlined in four simple steps and chapters what was planned and what would be the end-result. Starting with the “Lockstep” phase, where people would be stunned, shocked, isolated and made fearful and totally submissive to authorities (à la Naomi Klein’s “The Shock Doctrine”), from things not visible including an invisible – and never isolated – virus, all the way to the final phase of full digitization and total control.
Bill Gates’ February 2010 TedTalk, “Innovating to Zero” in which he infamously said: “If we are really doing a good job [vaccinating], we could reduce the world population by between 10% and 15%” (about minute four of the video).
The June 2016 (Swiss) Gotthard Base Tunnel Opening Ceremony, depicting a Luciferian ceremony beginning with a Lockstep scenario and ending with the total submission of the people. It was attended mostly by European politicians in lead positions – and, in hindsight, many of those who attended went to Klaus Schwab’s “academy” for Young Global Leaders. See this 6-minute video clip.
Event 201 – An open simulation of the COVID plandemic that was to come, on 18 October 2019 in NYC, organized by The Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security in partnership with the World Economic Forum and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. The event depicted a high-level pandemic exercise with participants from the World Bank, IMF, various agencies of the UN system, including WHO and UNICEF and many more, illustrating “areas where public / private partnerships will be necessary during the response to a severe pandemic in order to diminish large-scale economic and societal consequences.” For more details and video clips, see this.
The rest is history. In the meantime we know how large-scale economic and societal consequences were avoided or diminished. To the contrary, they were intended to hit the population as severely as possible, to cause utmost shock, fear, financial, physical and emotional damage.
