"The old appeals to racial, sexual and religious chauvinism, to rabid nationalist fervor, are beginning not to work." " …this business of who I am and weather I`m good or bad, or achieving or not, all of that`s learned along the way." "It`s just a ride…and we can change it any time we want. It`s only a choice. No effort, no work, no job, no savings of money…" "…to realize that I had the game wrong, that the game was to find out what I already was." "We were saying how very important it is to bring about in the human mind the radical revolution. The crisis is a crisis in consciousness. The crisis that cannot anymore accept the old norms, the old patterns, the ancient traditions. And, considering what the world is now, with all the misery, conflict, destructive brutality, aggression, and so on, man is still as he was. He is still brutal, violent, aggressive, acquisitive, competitive-and he has built a society along these lines.
[ ZEITGEIST ADDENDUM ]
[ "It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society" -J. Krishnamurti ]
Society today is composed of a series of institutions…from political institutions, legal institutions, religious institutions… to institutions of social class, familial values
and occupational specialization. It is obvious the profound influence these traditionalized structures have in shaping our understandings and perspectives…
Yet, of all the social institutions we are born into, directed by and conditioned upon, there seems to be no system as taken for granted and misunderstood…as the monetary system. Taking on nearly religious proportions, the established monetary institution exists as one of the most unquestioned forms of faith there is. How money is created, the policies by which it is governed and how it truly affects society are unregistered interests of the great majority of the population.
In a world where 1% of the population owns 40% of the planet's wealth…in a world where 34,000 children die every single day from poverty and preventable diseases, and where 50% of the world's population lives on less than 2 dollars a day… one thing is clear:
Something is very wrong.
And whether we are aware of it or not, the lifeblood of all of our established institutions and thus society itself, is money. Therefore understanding this institution of monetary policy is critical to understanding why our lives are the way they are.
Unfortunately, economics is often viewed with confusion and boredom. Endless streams of financial jargon coupled with intimidating mathematics quickly deter people from attempts at understanding it. However, the fact is, the complexity associated with the financial system is a mere mask, designed to conceal one of the most socially paralyzing structures humanity has ever endured.
[PART 1. "None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free."-Johann Wolfgang von Goethe-1749-1832]
A number of years ago, the central bank of the United States, the Federal Reserve, produced a document entitled "Modern Money Mechanics". This publication detailed the institutionalized practice of money creation, as utilized by the Federal Reserve and the web of global commercial banks it supports. On the opening page, the document states its objective: "The Purpose of this booklet is to describe the basic process of money creation in a fractional reserve banking system". It then proceeds to describe this 'fractional reserve process' through various banking terminology. A translation of which goes something like this:
The United States Government decides it needs some money, so it calls up the Federal Reserve, and requests, say, 10 billion dollars". The fed replies, saying " sure… we'll buy 10 billion in government bonds from you."
So, the government then takes some piece of paper, paints some official looking designs on them, and calls them 'Treasury Bonds'. Then, it puts a value on these Bonds to the sum of 10 billion dollars, and sends them over to the Fed. In turn, the people at the Fed draw up a bunch of impressive pieces of paper themselves, only this time calling them 'Federal Reserve Notes'…also designating a value of 10 billion dollars to the set.
The Fed then takes these notes and trades them for the Bonds. Once this exchange is complete, the government then takes the 10 billion in Federal Reserve Notes and deposits it into a bank account…and upon this deposit, the paper notes officially become 'legal tender' money, adding 10 billion to the US money supply. And there it is… 10 billion in new money has been created. Of course, this example is a generalization, for, in reality, this transaction would occur electronically, with no paper used at all. In fact only 3% of the US money supply exists in physical currency. The other 97% essentially exists in computers alone.
Now, Government bonds are, by design, instruments of Debt and when the Fed purchases these bonds, with money it created essentially out of thin air, the government is actually promising to pay back that money to the Fed.
In other words… The money was created out of debt. This mind numbing paradox of how money, or value, can be created out of debt, or a liability, will become more clear as we further this exercise.
So, the exchange has been made and now 10 billion dollars sits in a commercial bank account. Here is where it gets really interesting, for as based on the Fractional Reserve practice, that 10 billion dollar deposit instantly becomes part of the bank's Reserves, just as all deposits do. And regarding reserve requirements, as stated in Modern money mechanics:
A bank must maintain legally required reserves, equal to a prescribed percentage of its deposits. It then quantifies this by stating: under current regulations, the reserve requirement against most transaction accounts is 10%."
This means that with a ten billion dollar deposit, 10% or 1 billion is held as the required reserve, while the other 9 billion is considered an excessive reserve and can be used as the basis for new loans.
Now, it is logical to assume that this 9 billion is literally coming out of the existing 10 billion dollars deposit. However, this is actually not the case. What really happens is that the 9 billion is simply created out of thin air, on top of the existing 10 billion dollar deposit. This is how the money supply is expanded. As stated in Modern Money Mechanics: " of course, they (the banks) do not really pay out loans from the money they receive as deposits. If they did this, no additional money would be created. What they do when they make loans is to accept promissory notes (loan contracts) in exchange for credits (money) to the borrower's transaction accounts."
In other words, the 9 billion can be created out of nothing, simply because there is a demand for such a loan, and there is a 10 billion dollars deposit to satisfy the reserve requirements.
Now, let's assume that somebody walks into this bank and borrows the available 9 billion dollars. They will then most likely take that money and deposit it into their own bank account.
The process then repeats, for that deposit becomes part of the banks reserves, 10% is isolated and in turn 90% of the 9 billion or 8.1 billion is now available as newly created money for more loans. And, of course, that 8.1 can be loaned out and redeposited creating an additional 7.2 billion…to 6.5 billion.. to 5.9 billion etc.
This deposit-money creation-loan cycle can technically go on to infinity… the average mathematical result is that about 90 billion dollars can be created on top of the original 10 billion. In other words, for every deposit that ever occurs in the banking system, about 9 times that amount can be created out of thin air.
[Bank of America commercial]
So that we understand how money is created by this fractional reserve banking system,
a logical, yet elusive question might come to mind:
What is actually giving this newly created money value?
The answer: The money that already exists.
The new money essentially steals value from the existing money supply… for the total pool of money is being increased, irrespective to demand for goods and services, and, as supply and demand finds equilibrium- prices rise, diminishing the purchasing power of each individual dollar. This is generally referred to as 'inflation' and inflation is essentially a hidden tax on the public.
(Ron Paul) : "…what is the advice that you generally get, and that is inflate the currency. They don`t say debase the currency, they don`t say devalue the currency, they don`t say cheat the people with savings, they say lower the interest rates. The real deception is when we distort the value of money, when we create money out of thin air, we have no savings yet there`s so called capitol…so my question boils down to this-how in the world can we expect to solve the problems of inflation--that is the increase in the supply of money-- with more inflation? "
Of course, it can't. The Fractional Reserve System of monetary expansion is inherently
inflationary. For the act of expanding the money supply without there being a proportional expand of good and services in the economy, will always debase a currency..
In fact a quick glance at the historical values of the US dollars Vs the money supply,
Reflects this point definitively, for the inverse relationship is obvious.
In fact, One dollar in 1913 required 21.60 cents in 2007, to match value…that is a 96% devaluation since the Federal reserve has come into existence.
Now, if this realty of inherent and perpetual inflation seems absurd and economically
self-defeating… hold that thought, for absurdity is an understatement in regard to how our financial system really operates.
For in our financial system money is debt and debt is money. Here is a chart of the US money supply from 1950 to 2006. Here is a chart of the US national debt for the same period. How interesting it is that the trends are nearly identical… for the more money there is, the more debt there is… the more debt there is, the more money there is.
To put it a different way, every single dollar in your wallet is owed to somebody by somebody; for remember, the only way the money can come into existence is from loans. Therefore, if everyone in the country were able to pay off all debts, including the government, there would not be one dollar in circulation.
(If there were no debts in our money system, there wouldn`t be any money"
-Marriner Eccles-Governor of the Federal Reserve
September 30th, 1941 -House Committee Hearing on Banking and Currency )
In fact, the last time in American history the national debt was completely paid off was in 1835, after President Andrew Jackson shutdown the Central Bank that preceded the Federal Reserve. In fact Jackson's entire political platform essentially revolved around his commitment to shut down the Central Bank, stating at one point: " the bold efforts the present bank has made to control the government are but premonitions of the fate that awaits the American people should they be deluded into a perpetuation of this institution or the establishment of another like it." Unfortunately his message was short lived, and the international bankers succeeded to install another central bank in 1913…The Federal Reserve. And as long as this institution exists, perpetual debt is guaranteed.
Now, so far we have discussed the reality that money is created out of debt, through loans.
These loans are based on a bank's "Reserves" and Reserves are derived from deposits. Through this fractional reserve system, any one deposit can create 9 times its original value, in turn debasing the existing money supply, raising prices in society.
And since all this money is created out of debt and circulated randomly through commerce, people become detached from their original debt and a disequilibrium exists where people are forced to compete for labor, in order to pull enough money out of the money supply to cover their costs of living.
As dysfunctional and backwards as all of this might seem… there is still one thing we have omitted from this equation… and it is this element of the structure which reveals the truly fraudulent nature of the system itself.
-The application of Interest.
When the government borrows money from the Fed or when person borrows money from a bank, it almost always has to be paid back with accrued interest. In other words, almost every single dollar that exists must be eventually returned to a bank, with interest paid as well. But, if all money is borrowed from the central bank and is expanded by the commercial banks through loans, only what would be referred to as the 'principle' is being created in the money supply…. So then, where is the money to cover all of the interest that is charged?
Nowhere. It doesn't exist. The ramifications of this are staggering, for the amount of money owed back to the banks will always exceed the amount of money that is available in circulation. This is why Inflation is a constant in the economy, for new money is always needed to help cover the perpetual deficit built into the system, caused by the
the need to pay the interest.
What this also means is that mathematically, defaults and bankruptcy are literally built into the system. And there will always be poor pockets of society that get the short end of the stick. An analogy would be a game of musical chairs, for once the music stops someone is left out to dry.
And that's the point. It invariably transfers true wealth from the individual to the banks, for if you are unable to pay for your mortgage, they will take your property. This is particularly enraging when you realize that not only is such a default inevitable due to the fractional reserve practice, but also because of the fact that the money that the bank loaned to you didn't even legally exist in the first place.
In the 1969, there was a Minnesota court case involving a man named Jerome Daly, who was challenging the foreclosure of his home by the bank, which provided the loan to purchase it. His argument was that the mortgage contract required both parties, being he and the bank, each put up a legitimate form of property for the exchange. In legal language, this is called "consideration".
(Consideration: -a contract`s basis. A contract is founded on an exchange of one form of consideration for another.)
Mr. Daly explained that the money was, in fact, not the property of the bank, for it was created out of nothing as soon as the loan agreement was signed.
Remember what modern money mechanics stated about loans: "what they do when they make loans is to accept promissory notes in exchange for credits…Reserves are unchanged by the loan transactions. But deposit credits constitute new additions to the total deposits of the banking system." In other words, the money doesn't come out of any of their existing assets. The bank is simply inventing it, putting up nothing of its own except for a theoretical liability on paper.
As the court case progressed, the banks president, Mr. Morgan, took the stand, and in the judge's personal memorandum, he recalled that "The Plaintiff (bank's president) admitted that it, in combination with the Federal Reserve Bank…did create the…money and credit upon its books by bookkeeping entry…the money and credit first came into existence when they created it…Mr. Morgan admitted that no United States law or statute existed which gave him the right to do this…a lawful consideration must exist and be tendered to support the note." "The jury found that there was no lawful consideration and I agree" He also poetically added, " Only God can create something of value out of nothing"
And upon that revelation, the court rejected the bank's claim for foreclosure and Daly kept his home. The implications of this court decision are immense, for every time you borrow money from a bank, whether it is a mortgage loan or a credit card charge, the money given to you is not only counterfeit, it is an illegitimate form of consideration and hence voids the contract to repay… for the bank never had the money as property to begin with. Unfortunately, such legal realizations are suppressed and ignored, and the game of perpetual wealth transfer and perpetual debt continues….
And this brings us to the ultimate question: why?
During the American civil war president Lincoln bypassed the high-interest loans offered by the European banks and decided to do what the founding fathers advocated, which was to create an independent and inherently debt-free currency. It was called the Greenback. Shortly after this measure was taken, an internal document circulated between private British and American banking interests stated:
"…slavery is but the owning of labor and carries with it the care of laborers, while the European plan…is that capital shall control labor by controlling wages. This can be done by controlling the money. It will not do to allow the greenback, as we cannot control that."-The Hazard Circular, July, 1862
The fractional reserve policy perpetrated by the Federal Reserve, which has spread in practice to the great majority of banks in the world is, in fact, a system of modern slavery. Think about it… Money is created out of debt. And what do people do when in debt? They submit to employment to pay it off. But, if money can only be created out of loans, how can society ever be debt free? It can't. And that's the point.
And it is the fear of losing assets, coupled with the struggle to keep up with the perpetual debt and inflation inherent in the system, compounded by the inescapable scarcity within the money supply itself created by the interest that can never be repaid… that keeps the wage slave in line… running on the hamster wheel with the millions of others… in effect powering an Empire that truly benefits only the elite at the top of the pyramid… for at the end of day, who are you really working for? The banks. Money is created in a bank and invariably ends up in a bank. They are the true masters along with corporations and governments they support.
Physical slavery requires people to be housed and fed. Economic slavery requires the people to feed and house themselves
It is one of the most ingenious scams for social manipulation ever created, and at its core, it is an invisible war against the population. Debt is the weapon used to conquer and enslave societies and Interest is its prime ammunition.
And as the majority walks around oblivious to this reality, the banks, in collusion with governments and corporations, continue to perfect and expand their tactics of economic warfare…spawning new bases… such as the World Bank and International Monetary Fund… while also inventing a new type of soldier… the birth of the economic hit man.
( There are two ways to conquer and enslave a nation. One is by the sword. The other is by debt.-John Adams-1735-1826)
We economic hit men really have been the ones responsible for creating this first truly global empire, and we work many different ways…but perhaps the most common is that we will identify a country that has resources that our corporations covet, like oil, and then arrange a huge loan to that country from the World Bank or one of its sister organizations. But the money never actually goes to the country…instead it goes to our big corporations to build infrastructure projects in that country-power plants, industrial parks, ports-things that benefit a few rich people in that country, in addition to our corporations-but really don`t help the majority of the people at all…however those people, the whole country, is left holding a huge debt. Its such a big debt that they can`t repay it, and that`s part of the plan, that they can`t repay it. And so at some point we economic hit men go back to them and say listen, you owe us a lot of money, can`t pay your debts, so, sell your oil real cheap to our oil companies…allow us to build a military base in your country…or, send troops in support of ours to someplace in the world, like Iraq…or vote with us on the next U.N. vote…to have their electric utility company privatized, and their water and sewage system privatized, and sold to US corporations or other multinational corporations. So there was a whole mushrooming thing, and it`s so typical of the way that the IMF and the World Bank work: they put a country in debt, in such a big debt it can`t pay it, and then you offer to refinance that debt, and pay even more interest, and you demand this quid pro quo which you call a "conditionality" or "good governance" which means basically that they`ve got to sell off their resources, including many of their social services; their utility companies; their school systems sometimes; their penal systems; their insurance systems, to foreign corporations. So its a double, triple, quadruple whammy.
The precedent for economic hit men really began in the early fifties, when democratically elected Mossadegh, who was elected in Iran…he was considered to be the hope for democracy in the Middle East and around the world…he was Time Magazine`s "Man of the Year"…but, one of the things that he`d run on and began to implement was the idea that foreign oil companies needed to pay the Iranian people a lot more for the oil that they were taking out of Iran, that the Iranian people should benefit from their own oil. Strange policy. We didn't like that of course. But we were afraid to do what we normally were doing, which was to send in the military. Instead we sent in one CIA agent, Kermit Roosevelt, Teddy Roosevelt's relative…and Kermit went in with a few million dollars and was very, very effective and efficient, and in a short amount of time he managed to get Mossadegh overthrown…and brought in the Shah of Iran to replace him, who always was favorable to oil…and it was extremely effective.
(Revolt in Iran)
Mobs overflow Tehran. Army officers shout that Mossadegh has surrendered, and his regime as virtual dictator of Iran is ended. Pictures of the Shah paraded through the streets as sentiment reverses. The Shah is welcomed home.
So back here in the United States in Washington people looked around and said, wow, that was easy. And cheap. So this established a whole new way of manipulating countries, of creating empire. The only problem with Roosevelt was that he was a card carrying CIA agent, and had he been caught, the ramifications could have been pretty serious. So very quickly at that point the decision was made to use private consultants, to channel the money through the World Bank or the IMF or one of the other such agencies, to bring in people like me who work for private companies…so that if we got caught there would be no governmental ramifications.
When Arbenz became president of Guatemala, the country was very much under the thumbs of United Fruit Company, the big international corporation, and Arbenz ran on this ticket that says you know, we want to get the land back to the people, and once he took power he was implementing policies that would do exactly that, give land rights back to the people. United Fruit didn`t like that very much, and so they hired a public relations firm, launched a huge campaign in the United States to convince the United States people, the citizens of the United States, and the press of the United States, and the congress of the United States that Arbenz was a Soviet puppet, and that if we allowed him to stay in power the Soviets would have a foothold in this hemisphere, and that at that point in time was a huge fear on everybody's mind, the red terror, the communist terror…and so to make a long story short, out of this public relations campaign came a commitment on the part of the CIA and the military to take this man out…and in fact we did. we sent in planes, we sent in soldiers, we sent in jackals, we sent everything in to take him out, and did take him out. And as soon as he was removed from office, the new guy that took over after him basically reinstated everything to the big international corporations, including United Fruit.
Ecuador for many, many years had been ruled by pro-US dictators, often relatively brutal. Then it was decided that they were going to have a truly democratic election. Jaime Roldos ran for office, and his main goal he said as president would be to make sure that Ecuador's resources were used to help the people. And he won, overwhelmingly, by more votes than anyone had ever won anything in Ecuador, and he began to implement these policies…to make sure that the profits from oil went to help the people…well, we didn`t like that in the United States. I was sat down as one of several economic hit men, to change Roldos, to corrupt him, to bring him around. To let him know, you know, ok, you know, you can get very rich you and your family if you play our game, but if you continue to try to keep these policies you`ve promised, you`re gonna go… he wouldn`t listen.
(Ecuadorian leader dies in plane crash)
He was assassinated. As soon as the plane crashed, the whole area was cordoned off. The only people that were allowed in were US military from a nearby base, and some of the Ecuadorian military. When investigation was launched, two of the key witnesses died in car accidents before they had a chance to testify. A lot of very, very strange things that went on around the assassination of Jaime Roldos. I, like most people who`ve really looked at this case, have absolutely no doubt that it was an assassination, and of course in my position as an economic hit man I was always expecting something to happen to Jaime, weather it be a coup or an assassination I wasn`t sure, but that he would be taken down because he was not being corrupted, he would not allow himself to be corrupted the way we wanted to corrupt him.
Omar Torrijos, president of Panama, was one of my favorite people, I really, really liked him, he was very charismatic, he was a guy who really wanted to help his country. When I tried to bribe him or corrupt him he said, look John… he called me Juanito…he said, look Juanito, I don`t need the money. What I really need is for my country to be treated fairly. I need for the United States to repay the debts that you owe my people for all the destruction you`ve done here. I need to be in a position where I can help other Latin American countries win their independence, and be free of this terrible presence from the north that you people are exploiting us so badly. I need to have the Panama canal back in the hands of the Panamanian people. That`s what I want. And so leave me alone, don`t try to bribe me. It was 1981, and in may Jaime Roldos was assassinated, and Omar was very aware of this. Torrijos got his family together and he said, I`m probably next. But it`s ok, because I`ve done what I came here to do. I`ve renegotiated the canal, the canal will now be in our hands…he`d just finished negotiating the treaty with Jimmy Carter. In June of that same year, just a couple of months later, he also went down in an airplane crash…which there`s no question was executed by CIA sponsored Jackals. Tremendous amount of evidence that one of Torrijos' security guards handed him at the last moment as he was getting on the plane a tape recorder, a small tape recorder, that contained a bomb.
It is interesting to me how this system has continued pretty much the same way for years and years and years, except the economic hit men are getting better and better and better. Then we come up with, very recently, what happened in Venezuela. In 1998 Hugo Chavez gets elected president, following a long line of presidents who`d been very corrupt, and basically destroyed the economy of the country…and Chavez was elected amidst all that. Chavez stood up to the United States, and he has done it primarily demanding that Venezuelan oil be used to help the Venezuelan people. Well, we didn`t like that in the United States. So, in 2002 the coup was staged, which, there`s no question in my mind and most other peoples minds that the CIA was behind that coup. The way that that coup was fomented was very reflective of what Kermit Roosevelt had done in Iran, of paying people to go out into the streets to riot, to protest, to say this Chavez is very unpopular. You know, if you can get a few thousand people to do that, television can make it look like its the whole country, and things start to mushroom. Except in the case of Chavez, he was smart enough and the people were so strongly behind him that they overcame it. Which was a phenomenal moment in the history of Latin America.
Iraq actually is a perfect example of the way the whole system works…so, we economic hit men are the first line of defense, we go in, we try to corrupt governments and get them to accept these huge loans which we then use as leverage to basically own them. If we fail, as I failed in Panama with Omar Torrijos, or in Ecuador with Jaime Roldos, men who refused to be corrupted, then the second line of defense is we send in the jackals. And the jackals either overthrow governments or they assassinate, and once that happens then a new government comes in and boy, it`s going to tow the line, because the new president knows what will happen if he doesn't. In the case of Iraq, both of those things failed-economic hit men were not able to get through to Saddam Hussain, we tried very hard, we tried to get him to accept a deal very similar to what the house of Saud had accepted in Saudi Arabia, but he wouldn`t accept it, and so the jackals went in to take him out…they couldn`t do it, his security was very good…after all, he at one time worked for the CIA. he`d been hired to assassinate a former president if Iraq, and failed…but he knew the system. So in '91 we send in the troops, and we take out the Iraqi military. So we assume at that point that Saddam Hussain is going to come around. We could have taken him out, of course, at that point in time, but we didn`t want to, he`s the kind of strong man we like. He controls his people, we thought he could control the Kurds and keep the Iranians within their border, and keep pumping oil for us, and that once we took out his military, now he`s going to come around. So the economic hit men go back in in the '90s, without success. If they`d had success, he`d still be running the country. We`d be selling him all the fighter jets he wants, and everything else he wants… but they couldn`t, they didn`t have success. The Jackals couldn`t take him out again. So we sent the military in once again, and this time we did the complete job and took him out, and in the process created for ourselves some very, very lucrative construction deals…we had to reconstruct a country that we`d essentially destroyed, which is a pretty good deal if you own construction companies, big ones. So, Iraq shows the three stages; the economic hit men, failed there; the jackals, failed there; and as a final measure the military goes in. And in that way we`ve really created an empire, but we`ve done it very, very subtly…it`s clandestine. All of the empires of the past were built on the military. And everybody knew that they were building them. So that the British knew they were building them….the French, the Germans, the Romans, the Greeks…and they were proud of it, and they always had some excuse like spreading civilization, spreading some religion, something like that, but they knew they were doing it…we don`t. The majority of the people in the United States have no idea that we are living off the benefits of a clandestine empire, that today there`s more slavery in the world than ever before. And then you have to ask yourself, well if it`s an empire, then who`s the emperor? Obviously, our presidents of the United States are not emperors, an emperor is someone who`s not elected, doesn`t serve a limited term, and doesn`t report to anyone, essentially. So you can`t classify a president that way. But we do have what I consider to be the equivalent of the emperor, and it`s what I call the Corporatocracy. Corporatocracy is this group of individuals who run our biggest corporations and they really act as the emperor in this empire. They control our media, either through direct ownership or advertising, they control most of our politicians because they finance their campaigns, either through the corporations or through personal contributions that came out of the corporations. They`re not elected, they don`t serve a limited term, they don`t report to anybody, and at the very top of the corporatocracy you really can`t tell where the person`s working for a private corporation or the government because they`re always moving back and forth…so, you know, you`ve got a guy who one moment is the president of a big construction company, like Haliburton, and the next moment he`s vice president of the United States, or the president, who was in the oil business, and this is true weather you`ve got democrats or republicans in the office, you have them moving back and forth through the revolving door…and in a way, our government isn`t visible a lot of the time and its policies are carried out by our corporations on one level or another, and then again, the policies of the government are basically forged by the corporatacracy, and then presented to the government and they become government policy. So it`s an incredible cozy relationship. This isn`t a conspiracy theory type of thing, these people don`t have to get together and plot to do things, they all basically work under one primary assumption, and that is that they must maximize profits, regardless of the social and environmental cost
(Maximize profits, regardless of the social and environmental cost)
This process of manipulation by the corporatacracy through the use of debt, bribery and, political overthrow is called "Globalization". Just as the federal reserve keeps the American public in a position of indentured servitude through Perpetual Debt, Inflation and Interest, the World Bank and IMF serve this role on a global scale.
The basic scam is simple. Put a country in debt either by its own indiscretion or through corrupting the leader of that country, then , impose conditionalities, or Structural Adjustment Policies…often consisting of the following:
1- Currency Devaluation. When the value of a currency drops, so does everything valued in it. This makes indigenous resources available to predator countries, at a fraction of their worth.
2- Large funding cuts for Social Programs, These usually include education and health care. …compromising the well-being and integrity of the society, leaving the public vulnerable to exploitation.
3 -Privatization of state-owned enterprises… This means that socially important systems, can be purchased and regulated by foreign corporations, for profit. For example, in 1999, the world bank insisted that the Bolivian Government sell the public water system of it third largest city to a subsidy of the US corporation, Bechtel. As soon as this occurred, water bills for the already impoverish local residents skyrocketed. It wasn't until after a full blown revolt by the people that the Bechtel contract was nullified.
4 Then there is trade liberalization.. or the opening up of the economy through removing any restrictions on foreign trade. This allows for a number of
abusive economic manifestations… such as transnational corporations bringing in their own mass produced products, undercutting the indigenous production and ruining local economies…an example is Jamaica, which, after accepting loans and conditionalities from the world bank, lost its largest cash crop markets due to competition with western imports. Today, countless farmers are out of work, for they are unable to compete with the large corporations.
Another variation is the creation of numerous, seemingly unnoticed, unregulated, inhumane sweatshop factories, which take advantage of the imposed economic hardship. Additionally, due to production deregulation, environmental destruction is perpetual, as a country's resources are often exploited by the indifferent corporations, while outputting large amounts of deliberate pollution.
The largest environmental lawsuit in the history of the world today is being brought on behalf of 30,000 Ecuadorian Amazonian people, against Texaco, which is now owned by Chevron, so its against Chevron but for activities conducted by Texaco….they estimate it to be more than eighteen times what the Exxon Valdese dumped into the coast of Alaska…in the case of Ecuador it wasn`t an accident…the oil companies did it intentionally, they knew they were doing it to save money out there rather than arranging for a proper disposal.
Furthermore, A cursory glance at the performance record of the World Bank reveals that the institution, which publicly claims to help poor countries develop and alleviate poverty, has done nothing but increase poverty and the wealth gap, while corporate profits soar. In 1960 the income gap between the 5th of the world's people in the richest countries, versus the 5th in the poorest countries was 30:1. By 1998, it was 74:1.While global GNP rose 40% between 1970 and 1985, those in poverty actually increased by 17% While from 1985 to 2000, those living on less than 1 dollar a day increased by 18%.
Even the Joint Economic Committee of the US Congress admitted that there is a mere 40% success rate of all World Bank projects.
In the late 1960s, The world Bank intervened in Ecuador with large loans. During the next 30 yrs, poverty grew from 50% to 70%…under or unemployment grew from 15% to 70%… public debt increased from 240 million to 16 billion….while the share of resources allocated to the poor went from 20% to 6%.
In fact, By the year 2000, 50% of Ecuador's national budget had to be allocated for paying its debts.
It is important to understand, The World Bank is, in fact, a US bank, supporting US interests. For the United States holds veto power over decisions, as it is largest provider of capital… and where did it get this money? You guessed it….it made it out of thin air through the fractional reserve banking system.
Of the world's top 100 economies, as based on the annual GDP, 51 are corporations,
And 47 of that 51 are US based. Wal-mart, General Motors and Exxon are more economically powerful than Saudi Arabia, Poland, Norway, South Africa, Finland, Indonesia and many others….
… and as protective trade barriers are broken down, currencies tossed together and manipulated in floating markets and state economies overturned in favor of open competition and global capitalism, the empire expands.
NETWORK CLIP :
You get up on your little twenty-one inch screen, and howl about America and democracy…there is no America, there is no democracy…there is only IBM and ITT…and AT&T…and Dupont, Dow, Union Carbine…and Exxon. Those are the nations of the world today. What do you thing the Russians talk about in their consuls of state? Karl Marx? They get out their linear programming charts, statistical decision theories, minimax solutions, and compute the price cost probabilities of their transactions and investments, just like we do. We no longer live in a world of nations and ideologies, Mr. Beale. The world is a college of corporations, inexorably determined by the immutable bylaws of business. The world is a business, Mr. Beale .
(Taken cumulatively, the integration of the world as a whole, particularly in terms of economic globalization and the mythic qualities of "free market" capitalism, represents a veritable "empire" in its own right…few have been able to escape the "structural adjustments" and "conditionalities" of the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, or the arbitrations of the World Trade Organization, those international financial institutions that, however inadequate, still determine what economic globalization means….such is the power of globalization that within our lifetime we are likely to see the integration, even if unevenly, of all national economies in the world into a single global, free market system.
--Jim Garrison, President, State of the World Forum )
the world is being taken over by a handful of business powers, who dominate the natural resources we need to live, while controlling the money that we need to obtain these resources. The end result will be world monopoly, based not human life, but financial and corporate power.
and as the inequality continues, naturally more and more people are becoming desperate…. so the establishment was forced to come up with a new way to deal with anyone who challenges the system…so they gave birth to the terrorist.. The term terrorist is an empty distinction, designed for any person or group who chooses to challenge the Establishment.
This isn't to be confused with the fictional Al Qaeda, which was actually the name of a computer database for the US supported mujahideen in the 1980s .
("The truth is, there is no Islamic army or terrorist group called Al Qaida. And any informed intelligence officer knows this. But there is a propaganda campaign to make the public believe in the presence of an identified entity…the country behind this propaganda is the US" -Pierre-Henry Bunel, former French military intelligence )
In 2007, the department of defense received 161.8 billion dollars for the so called "global war on terrorism". According to the National Counter terrorism Center, in 2004 roughly 2000 people were killed internationally due to supposed terrorist acts. Of that number, about 70 were American. Using this number as a general average, which is extremely generous, …it is interesting to note than twice as many people die from peanut allergies a year, than from terrorist acts. Concurrently, the leading cause of death in America is coronary heart disease, killing roughly 450,000 each yr. And, in 2007, the government`s allocation of funds for research on this issue was about 3 billion dollars.
This means that the US government in 2007 spent 54 times the amount for preventing terrorism , than it spent for preventing a disease which kills 6600 times more
people annually than terrorism does.
Yet, as the name Terrorism and Al-Qaida are arbitrarily stamped on every news report relating to any action taken against US interests, the myth grows wider… in mid 2008, the US attorney general actually proposed that the US congress officially declare war against the fantasy. Not to mention as of july 2008, there are now over 1 million people currently on the "US terrorist watch list"
These so-called counter terrorism measures of course have nothing to do with social protection… and everything to do with preserving the establishment amongst the growing anti-American sentiment both domestically and internationally…, which is legitimately founded on the greed based corporate empire expansion that is exploiting the world.
The true terrorists of our world do not meet at the docks at midnight… or scream allahu akbar before some violent action. The true terrorists of our world wear 5000 dollar suits and work in highest position finance, government and business…
So what do we do?… how do we stop a system of greed and corruption that has so much power and momentum. How do we stop this aberrant group behavior which feels no compassion for, say, the million slaughtered in Iraq and Afghanistan so the Corporatocracy can control energy resources and opium production for Wall street profit?
( Before 1980, Afghanistan produced 0% of the world`s opium; After the US/CIA backed Mujahideen won the Soviet/Afghan war, by 1986 they were producing 40% of the world`s heroin supply;
By 1999, they were producing 80% of the total market supply;
But then something unexpected happened…; The Taliban rose to power, and by 2000 they had destroyed most of the opium fields. Production dropped from 3,000+tons to only 185 tons, a 94% reduction. ; On Sept. 9th 2001, the full Afghanistan invasion plans were on President Bush`s desk;
Two days later they had their excuse;
Today, opium production in US controlled Afghanistan, which now provides more than 90 percent of the world`s heroin, breaks new production records nearly every year.
How do we stop a system of greed and corruption, that condemns poor populations to sweat shop slavery for the benefit of Madison avenue… or that engineers false flag terror attacks for the sake of manipulation….or that generates built in modes of social operation which are inherently exploitative…
or that systematically reduces civil liberties, and violates human rights in order to protect itself from it own shortcomings.
How do we deal with the numerous covert institutions such as the council on foreign relations, the trilateral commission and the bilderburg group and other undemocratically elected groups ,which , behind closed doors collude to control the political, financial, social and environmental elements of our lives?
In other to find the answer, we must first find the true underlying cause….for the fact is, the selfish, corrupt, power and profit based groups are not the true source of the problem…they are symptoms.

"GREED AND COMPETITION ARE NOT THE RESULT OF IMMUTABLE HUMAN TEMPERMENT…GREED AND FEAR OF SCARCITY ARE IN FACT BEING CREATED AND AMPLIFIED …THE DIRECT CONSEQUENCE IS THAT WE HAVE TO FIGHT WITH EACH OTHER IN ORDER TO SURVIVE"
-Bernard Lietaer, Founder of the EU Currency System
"My name is Jacque fresco. I'm an industrial designer and a social engineer. I am very much interested in society, and developing a system that might be sustainable…for all people.
First of all, the word corruption is a monetary invention…that aberrant behavior...behavior that's disruptive to the well being of people. Well, you're dealing with human behavior, and human behavior appears to be environmentally determined, meaning, if you were raised by the seminal Indians as a baby, never saw anything else, you would hold that value system.
And this goes for nations; it goes for individuals; for families… they try to indoctrinate their children to their particular faith and their country, and make them feel like they're part of that. And they build a society, which they call 'established'. They establish a workable point of view, and tend to perpetuate that. Whereas, all societies are really emergent, not established. And so, they fight new ideas that would interfere with the establishment.
Governments try to perpetuate that which keeps them in power. People are not elected to political office to change things… they are put there to keep things the way they are. So you see, the basis of corruption is in our society. Let me make it clear. All nations then, are basically corrupt, because they tend to uphold existing institutions. I don't mean to uphold or downgrade all nations, but communism, socialism, fascism, the free enterprise system and all other sub-cultures are the same… they are all basically corrupt.
The most fundamental characteristic of our social institutions is the necessity for 'self-preservation'. Whether dealing with a corporation, a religion. or a government, the foremost interest is to preserve the institution itself.
For instance, the last thing an oil company would ever want is the utilization of energy that was outside of its control, for it makes that company less relevant to society. Likewise, the cold war and the collapse of the Soviet Union was, in reality, a way to preserve & perpetuate the established economic and global hegemony of the United States…similarly religions condition people to feel guilty for natural inclinations, each claiming to offer the only path to forgiveness and salvation.
At the heart of this institutional self-preservation lies the monetary system, for it is money that provides the means for power and survival.
Therefore, just as a poor person might be forced to steal in order to survive, it is a natural inclination to do whatever is needed to continue an institution's profitability. This makes it inherently difficult for profit-based institutions to change, for it puts in jeopardy not only the survival of large groups of people, but also the coveted, materialistic lifestyles associated with affluence, and power.
Therefore, the paralyzing necessity to preserve an institution, regardless of its social relevance, is largely rooted in the need for money, or profit.
[TITLE : "INDUSTRY"]
'What's in it for me', is the way people think. And so if a man makes money selling a certain product, naturally he is going to fight the existence of another product that may threaten his institution. Therefore people cannot be fair and people do not trust each other. A guy will come over to you and say, "I've got just the house you're looking for".
He's a salesman. When a doctor says 'I think your kidney has to come out', I don't know if he's trying to pay off a yacht, or that my kidney has to come out- it's hard in monetary system to trust people.
If you came into my store and I said this lamp that I've got is pretty good, but the lamp in the next store is much better, I wouldn't be in business very long. It wouldn't work… If I were ethical, it wouldn't work. So, when you say industry cares for people… that are not true. They can't afford to be ethical. So your system is not designed to serve the well being of people… if you still don't understand that, there would be no outsourcing of jobs… if they cared about people. Industry does not care. They only hire people because it hasn't been automated yet. So, don't talk about decency and ethics… we cannot afford it and remain in business.
It is important to point out, that regardless of the social system, whether fascist, socialist, capitalist or communist, the underlying machanism is still money, labor and competition.
Communist China is no less capitalistic than the United States. The only difference is the degree by which the state intervenes in enterprise.
The reality is that "monetary-ism", so to speak, is the true mechanism that guides the interests of all the countries on the planet.
The most aggressive and hence dominant variation of this monetary-ism is the free enterprise system. The fundamental perspective, as put forth by early free market economists, like Adam smith, is that self-interest and competition leads to social prosperity, as the act of competition creates incentive, which motivates people to persevere.
However, what isn't talked about is how a competition-based economy invariably leads to strategic corruption, power and wealth consolidation, social stratification, technological paralyses, labor abuse, and ultimately a covert form of government dictatorship by the rich elite.
The word corruption is often defined as moral perversion.
If a company dumps toxic waste into the ocean to save money, most people recognize this as corrupt behavior. On a more subtle level, when WalMart moves into a small town and forces small businesses to shut down, for they are unable to complete, a gray area emerges…. For what exactly is Walmart doing wrong? Why should they care about mom and pop organizations they destroy. Yet, even more subtly, when a person gets fired from their job, because a new machine has been created which can do the work for less money, people tend to just accept that as " the way it is" not seeing the inherent, corrupt inhumanity of such an action.
Because the fact is, whether it is dumping toxic waste, having a monopoly enterprise, or downsizing the workforce, the motive is the same.- profit. They are all different degrees of the same self-preserving mechanism, which always puts the well being of people second to monetary gain. Therefore corruption is not some byproduct of monetary-ism… it is the very foundation. And while most people acknowledge this tendency on one level or another, the majority remains naïve as to the broad ramifications of having such a selfish mechanism as the guiding mentality in society.
[MSNBC NEWS VIDEO CLIP]
"Internal documents show that after this company positively, absolutely knew that they had a medication that was infected with the Aids virus, they took the product off the market in the U.S. and then they dumped it in France, Europe, Asia and Latin America. The US government allowed it to happen…. The FDA allowed this to happen and now the government is completely looking the other way. Thousands of innocent, hemophiliacs have died from the aids virus. This company knew absolutely that it was infected with Aids. They dumped it because they wanted to turn this disaster into a profit."
" So you see, you have built in corruption. We are all chiseling off each other, and you can't expect decency in that sort of thing.
And feeling that, they don't know who to elect. They think in terms of a democracy, which is not possible in a monetary based economy.
If you have more money to advertise your position… the position you desire in government, that isn't a democracy. It serves those in positions of differential advantage… so it is always a dictatorship of the elitists- the financially wealthy.
[TEXT ON SCREEN:] "WE CAN EITHER HAVE DEMOCRACY IN THIS COUNTRY OR WE CAN HAVE GREAT WEALTH CONCENTRATED IN THE HANDS OF A FEW, BUT WE CAN'T HAVE BOTH" - Louis Brandeis, supreme court justice
It is an interesting observation to note how seemingly unknown personalities, magically appear on the scene as presidential candidates. Then, before you know it, somehow you are left to choose from a small group of extremely wealthy people, who suspiciously have the same broad social view.
Obviously, it's a joke.
The people placed on the ballot are done so because they have been pre-decided to be acceptable by the established financial powers who actually run the show.
Yet, many who understand this illusion of democracy, often think: if only we could just get our honest, ethical politicians in power, then we would be okay. Well, while this idea of course seems reasonable in our established oriented worldview, it is, unfortunately, another fallacy. For, when it really comes down to what is actually important, the institution of politics, and thus politicians themselves have absolutely no true relevance as to what makes our world and society function.
"It's not politicians that can solve problems. They have no technical capabilities. They don't know how to solve problems. Even if they were sincere, they don't know how to solve problems. It's the technicians that produce the desalinization plants. It's the technicians that give you electricity…that give you motor vehicles, that heat your house… and cool it in the summertime. It's technology that solves problems, not politics. Politics cannot solve problems, because they are not trained to do so.
Very few people today stop and consider what it is that actually improves their lives. Is it money? Obviously not… One cannot eat money or stuff money into their car to get it to run… is it politics? - All politicians can do is create laws, establish budgets and declare war. Is it religion? Of course not…. Religion creates nothing except intangible emotional solace for those who require it.
The true gift that we have as human beings have, which has been solely responsible for everything that has improved our lives... is technology.
What is technology? Technology is a pencil, which allows one to solidify ideas on paper for communication. Technology is an automobile, which allows one to travel faster than feet would allow. Technology is a pair of eyeglasses, which enables sight for those who need it.
Applied technology itself is merely an extension of human attributes, which reduces human effort freeing humans from a particular chore or problem. Imagine what your life would be like today without a telephone… or an oven… or a computer… or an airplane. Everything in your home, which you take for granted, from a doorbell to a table to a dishwasher, is technology, generated from the creative, scientific ingenuity of human technicians… not money, politics or religion…These are false institutions.
And writing your congressman is fantastic. They tell you to write your congressman if you want something done. The men in Washington should be at the forefront of technology. The forefront of human study... the forefront of crime… all the factors that shape human behavior. You don't have to write your congressman…. What kind of people are they that are appointed to do that job?
The future will have great difficulty…
And the question that is raised by politicians is " how much will a project cost?" The question is not "how much will it cost?" - "Do we have the resources?" and we have the resources today, to house everyone, build hospitals all over the world, build schools all over the world, the finest equipment in labs for teaching and doing medical research. So you see, we have all that, but we are in a monetary system, and in a monetary system- there's profit.
And what is the fundamental mechanism that drives the profit system, besides self-interest? What is it exactly that maintains that competitive edge at its core. Is it high efficiency and sustainability? No. That isn't part of their design. Nothing produced in our profit-based society is even remotely sustainable or efficient. If it was there wouldn't be a multi-million dollar a year service industry for automobiles, nor would the average life span for most electronics be less than three months before they are obsolete.
Is it abundance? Absolutely not... Abundance, as based on the laws of supply and demand, is actually a negative thing. If a diamond company finds 10 times the usual amount of diamonds during their mining, it means the supply of diamonds has increased, which means the cost and profit per diamond, drops.
The fact is, efficiency, sustainability and abundance are enemies of profit.
To put it into a word., it is the mechanism of SCARCITY that increases profits.
"What is scarcity? Based on keeping products valuable. Slowing up production on oil raises the price. Maintaining scarcity of diamonds, keeps the price high. They burn diamonds at the Kimberly diamond mines- they are made of carbon-it keeps the price up."
So then, what does it means for society when scarcity, either produced naturally or through manipulation, is a beneficial condition for industry?
It means that sustainability and abundance will never ever occur in a profit system, for it simply goes against the very nature of the structure. Therefore, it is impossible to have a world without war or poverty, it is impossible to continually advance technology to its most efficient and productive states … and most dramatically, it is impossible to expect human beings to be behave in truly ethical or decent ways.
[TITLE: "HUMAN NATURE OR HUMAN BEHAVIOR?"]
People use the word instinct. Because they can't account for the behavior. They sit back and they evaluate, with their lack of knowledge, and they say things like: " Humans are built a certain way, greed is natural thing"…as though they worked for years on it… and it's no more natural than wearing clothing.
What we want to do is to eliminate the causes of the problems. Eliminate the processes that produce greed and bigotry and prejudice and people taking advantage of one another, and elitism. Eliminating the need for prisons and welfare. We have always had these problems because we have always lived within scarcity and barter and monetary systems that produce scarcity.
If you eradicate the conditions that generate what you call socially offensive behavior, it does not exist. A guy says: "well isn't that inborn"? No it's not.
There is no human nature, there's human behavior, and that's always been changed throughout history. You're not born with bigotry and greed and corruption and hatred. You pick that up within the society.
War, poverty, corruption, hunger, misery, human suffering will not change in a monetary system. That is- there will be very little significant change. It's going to take the redesign of our culture, our values, and it has to be related to the carrying capacity of the earth. Not some human opinion or some politician's notions of the way the world ought to be… or some religious notions of the conduct of human affairs.
And that is what the Venus Project is about.
[TITLE: "THE VENUS PROJECT"]
The society that we're about to talk about is a society that is free of all the old superstitions, incarceration, prisons, police, cruelty and law. All laws will disappear. And the professions will disappear that are no longer valid, such as stockbrokers, bankers, advertising, gone forever. Because it's no longer relevant.
When we understand that is it technology, devised by human ingenuity, which frees humanity and increases our quality of life, we then realize that the most important focus we can have, is on the intelligent management of the earth's resources, for it is from these natural resources we gain the materials to continue our path of prosperity.
Understanding this, we then see that money fundamentally exists as a barrier to these resources for virtually everything has a financial cost. And why do we need money to obtain these resources? Because of real or assumed scarcity. We don't usually pay for air and tap water, because it is in such high abundance, selling it would be pointless.
So then, logically speaking, if resources and technologies applicable to creating everything in our societies, such as houses, cities and transportation, were in high enough abundance, there would be no reason to sell anything. Likewise, if automation and machinery was so technologically advanced, as to relieve human beings of labor, there would be no reason to have a job… and with these social aspects taken care of, there would be no reason to have money at all.
So the ultimate question remains? Do we on earth have enough resources and technological understanding, to create a society of such abundance, that everything we have now could be available without a price tag and without the need for submission through employment?
Yes we do. We have the resources and technology to enable this at a minimum, along with the ability to raise the standard of living so high, that people in the future will look back at our civilization now, and gawk at how primitive and immature our society was.
What the Venus Project proposes is an entirely different system that's updated to present day knowledge.
We have never given scientists the problem of how do you design a society which would eliminate boring and monotonous jobs, that would eliminate accidents in transportation, that would enable people to have a high standard of living. That would eliminate poisons in our food… give us other sources of energy that are clean and efficient. We can do that out there.
[TITLE: A RESOURCE BASED ECONOMY]
The major difference, between a resource based economy and a monetary system, is that a resource based economy is really concerned with people and their well-being. Where a monetary system has become so distorted that the concerns of the people are really secondary, if they are there at all. The products that are turned out are for how much money you can get. If there is a problem in society and you can't earn money from solving that problem, than it won't be done. A resource-based economy is really not close to anything that's been tried. And with all our technology today we can create abundance. It can be used to improve everyone's lifestyle…abundance all over the world, if we use our technology wisely and maintain the environment.
It's a very different system and its very hard to talk about because the public is not that well enough informed as to the state of technology.
[TITLE: The Venus Project: ENERGY]
At present, we don't have to burn fossil fuels. We don't have to use anything that would contaminate the environment. There are many sources of energy available.
Alternative energy solutions pushed by the establishment, such a hydrogen, biomass and even nuclear, are highly insufficient, dangerous, and exist only to perpetuate the profit structure that industry has created. When we look beyond the propaganda and self-serving solutions put forth by the energy companies, we find a seemingly endless stream of clean, abundant and renewable energy for generating power.
Solar and wind energy are well known the public, but the true potential of these mediums remains unexpressed. Solar energy, derived from the sun, has such abundance, that one hour of light at high noon, contains more energy than what the entire world consumes in a year. If we could capture .01 of a percent of this energy, the world would never have to use oil, gas or anything else. The question then is not availability, but the technology to harness it, and there are many advanced mediums today, which could accomplish just that, if they were not hindered by the need to compete for market share with the established energy power structures.
Then there is wind energy. Wind energy has long been denounced as weak and, due to it being location driven, impractical. This is simply not true. The US department of energy admitted in 2007, that if wind was fully harvested in just 3 of America's 50 states, it could power the entire nation.
And then there are the rather unknown mediums of Tidal and Wave Power. Tidal power is derived from Tidal shifts in the ocean. Installing turbines, which capture this movement, generates energy. In the United Kingdom, 42 sites are currently noted as available, forecasting that 34% of all the UK's energy could come form tidal power alone. Wave Power, which extracts energy from the surface motions of the ocean, is estimated to have a global potential of up to 80,000 TWh a year, This means 50% of the entire planet's energy usage could be produced from this medium alone.
Now It is important to point out that tidal, wave, solar and wind power requires virtually no preliminary energy to harness, unlike coal, oil, gas, biomass, hydrogen and all the others.
In combination, these four mediums alone, if efficiently harnessed through technology, could power the world forever.
That being said, there happens to be another form of clean, renewable energy, which trumps them all- Geothermal Power.
Geothermal energy utilizes what is called heat mining, which, though a simple process using water, is able to generate massive amounts of clean energy. In 2006, an MIT report on geothermal energy found that 13,000 zettajoules of power are currently available in the earth, with the possibility of 2000 zj being easily tap-able with improved technology. The total energy consumption of all the countries on the planet is about half of a zettajoule a year. This means about 4000 years of planetary power could be harnessed in this medium alone. And when we understand that the earth's heat generation is constantly renewed, this energy is really limitless and could be used forever.
These energy sources are only a few of the clean, renewable mediums available, and as time goes on, we will find more.
The grand realization is that we have total energy abundance, without the need for pollution, traditional conservation, or, in fact, a price tag.
[TITLE: THE VENUS PROJECT - TRANSPORATION]
And what about transportation? The prevailing means of transportation in our societies is by automobile and aircraft, both of which predominantly need fossils fuels to run.
In the case of the automobile, the battery technology needed to power an electric car that can go over 100 miles an hour for over 200 miles on one charge exists, and has existed for many years. However, due to battery patents controlled by the oil industry, which limits their availability, to maintain market share, coupled with the political pressure from the energy industry, the accessibility and affordability of this technology is limited.
There is absolutely no reason, other than pure, corrupt profit interest, that every single vehicle in the world could not be electric and utterly clean, with zero need for gasoline.
As far as airplanes, it is time we realize that this means of travel is inefficient, cumbersome, slow, and causes far too much pollution.
This is a Mag Lev train. It uses magnets for propulsion. It is fully suspended by a magnetic field, and requires less than 2% of the energy used for plane travel. The train has no wheels, so nothing can wear out. The current maximum speed of versions of this technology, as used in Japan, is 361 miles per hour. However, this version of the technology is very dated.
An organization called ET3, which has connections with the Venus Project, has established a tube based maglev that can travel up to 4000 miles per hour, in a motionless, frictionless tube, which can go over land, or underwater. Imagine going from LA to NY for an extended lunch break…. Or from Washington DC to Beijing China in 2 hours. This is the future of continental and intercontinental travel. Fast, clean, with only a fraction of the energy usage we use today for the same means.
In fact, between maglev technology, advanced battery storage, and geothermal energy, there would be no reason to ever burn fossil fuels again. And we can do this now, if we were not held back by the paralyzing profit structure.
Now America is inclined towards fascism. It has a propensity by its dominant philosophy and religion, to uphold the fascist point of view. American industry is essentially a fascist institution. If you don't understand that, the minute you punch that time clock, you walk into a dictatorship.
Were given notions about the respectability of work. And I really look at as being paid slavery.
You're brought up to believe that you shall earn you living by the sweat of your brow… that holds people back. Freeing people, from drudgery, repetitive jobs, which make them ignorant. You rob them. In our society, that is a resource-based economy, machines free people. You see, we can't image that, because we've never known that kind of world.
If we look back history, we see a very clear pattern of machine automation, slowly replacing human labor. From the disappearance of the elevator man, to the near full automation of an automobile production plant, the fact is as technology grows, the need for humans in the work force will continually be diminished. This creates a serious clash, which proves the falseness of the monetary based labor system… for human employment is in direct competition with technological development. Therefore, given the fundamental priority of profit by Industry, people, through time will be continually laid off and replaced by machine.
When industry takes on a machine, instead of shortening the workday, they downsize, you lose you job, so you have a right to fear machines.
In a high technology, resourced based economy, it is conservative to say that about 90% of all current occupations could be phased out by machines… Freeing humans to live their life without servitude… for this is the point of technology itself. And through time, with nanotechnology and other highly advances forms of science, it isn't far fetched to see how even complex medical procedures could be performed by machines as well. And, based on the pattern, with much higher success rates than humans get today.
The path is clear… but our monetary based structure, which requires labor for income, blocks this progress, for humans need jobs in order to survive. The bottom line is that this system must go, or we will never be free and technology will be constantly paralyzed.
When you have machines that clean out sewers, it frees a human being from doing that. So look at machines as extensions of human performance.
Furthermore, many occupations today will have simply no basis to exist in a resourced based economy…such as anything associated the management of money, advertising, along with the legal system itself. For, without money, a great majority of the crimes that are committed today would never occur. Virtually all forms are of Crime are a consequence of the monetary system either directly, or by neurosis inflicted though financial deprivation. Therefore laws themselves could eventually become extinct.
Instead of putting up a sign: 'drive carefully, slippery when wet, put abrasive in the highway, so it's not slippery when wet. If a person gets in a car and they're drunk and the car oscillates a great deal, there's a little pendulum that swings up and back, and that will pull the car over to the side… not a law, a solution. Put sonar and radar in automobiles, so they cant hit one another. Man-made laws are attempts to deal with occurring problems, and not knowing how to solve them, they make a law.
In the United States, the most privitazed, capitalist country on the planet, it should come as no surprise that it also has the largest prison population in the world…growing every year. Statistically, most of these people are uneducated and come from poor, deprived societies. And contrary to propaganda, it's this environmental conditioning which lures them into criminal and violent behavior. However, society looks the other way in regard to this point.
The legal and prison systems are just more examples of how our society avoids examining the root causes of behavior. Billions are spent each year on prisons and police, while only a fraction is spent on programs for poverty, which is one of the most fundamental variables responsible for crime to begin with.
And, as long as we have an economic system, which prefers and in fact creates scarcity deprivation, crime will never go away.
If people have access to the necessities of life, without servitude, debt, barter, trade… they behave very differently. You want all these things available without a price tag. Now then, 'you gotta have a price tag, what will motivate people… if man gets everything he wants he will just lay around in the sun'. This is the myth they perpetuate. People in our culture are trained to believe that the monetary system produces incentive, if they have access to things, why should they want to do anything. They will lose their incentive. That's what you're taught to support the monetary system,
When you take money out of the scenario, there would be different incentives, very different incentives.
[FRESCO:] When people have access to the necessities of life, their incentives change…what about the moon and the stars. New incentives arise... if you make a painting that you enjoy. You will enjoy giving it to other people, not selling it.
I think most of the education that I've seen today is essentially producing a person for a job… it is very specialized. They are not generalists… people don't know a lot about a lot different subjects. I don't think you could get people to go to war if they knew a lot about a lot of things. I think education is mostly rote and they're not taught how to solve problems… they are not given the tools, emotionally or within their own field, of how to do critical thinking. In a resource based economy the education would be very different.
Our societies major concern is mental development… and to motivate each person to their highest potential. Because our philosophy is, the smarter people are the richer the world, because everybody becomes a contributor.
The smarter your kids are, the better my life will be, because they will be contributing more constructively to the environment and to my life, because everything that we devise within a resource based economy, would be applied to society. There would be nothing to hold it back.
Patriotism, weapons, armies, navy…. All that is a sign, that we are not civilized yet. Kids will ask their parents ' didn't you see the necessity of the machines? Dad, couldn't you see that war was inevitable when you produce scarcity? Isn't it obvious? Of course, the kid will understand, that you were pinheads… raised merely to serve the established institutions. We're such an abominable, sick society, that we wont make the history books, they will just say that large nations took land from smaller nations, used force and violence. You will get history talked about as corrupt behavior all the way along, until the beginning of the civilized world… that's when all the nations worked together. World unification… working toward for common good for all human beings, and without anyone being subservient to anyone else. Without social stratification… whether it is technical elitism, or any other kind of elitism, eradicated from the face of the earth.
The state does nothing, because there is no state.
The system I advocate, a resource based global economy, is not perfect, it just a lot better than what we have. We can never achieve perfection.
TEXT ON SCREEN: "MY COUNTRY IS THE WORLD… AND MY RELIGION IS TO DO GOOD" -THOMAS PAINE (1737-1809)
The social values of our society, which has manifested in perpetual warfare, corruption, oppressive laws, social stratification, irrelevant superstitions, environmental destruction, and a despotic, socially different, profit oriented, ruling class, is fundamentally the result of a collective ignorance, of two of the most basic insights humans can have about reality... the EMERGENT and SYBIOTIC aspects of natural law.
The Emergent nature of reality, is that all systems, whether it is knowledge, society, technology, philosophy, or any other creation, will, when uninhibited, undergo fluid, perpetual change. What we consider commonplace today, such modern communication and transportation, would have been unimaginable in ancient times… likewise, the future will contain technologies, realizations and social structures, that we cannot even fathom in the present. We have gone from Alchemy, to chemistry…from a geocentric universe, to a heliocentric…from believing that demons where the cause of illness, to modern medicine. This development shows no sign of ending, and it is this awareness that aligns us and leads us on a continuous path to growth and progress. Static, Empirical knowledge does not exist…rather it is the insight of the emergence of all systems, we must recognize. This means we must be open to new information at all times, even if it threatens our current belief system and hence, identities.
Sadly, society today has failed to recognize this and the established institutions continue to paralyze growth, by preserving outdated social structures. Simultaneously, the population suffers from a fear of change as well, for their conditioning assumes a static identity, and challenging ones belief system, usually results in insult and apprehension, for being wrong is erroneously associated with failure.
When, if fact, to be proven wrong should be a celebrated, for it is elevating someone to a new level of understanding, furthering awareness. The fact is, there is no such thing as a smart human being, for it is merely a matter of time, before their ideas are updated, changed or eradicated. And this tendency to blindly hold on to a belief system, sheltering it from new, possibly transforming information, is nothing less than a form of "intellectual materialism".
The monetary system perpetuates this materialism not only by its self preserving structures, but also through the countless number of people who have been conditioned into blindly, and thoughtlessly upholding these structures, therefore becoming 'self-appointed guardians of the status quo". Sheep, which no longer need a sheep dog to control them, for they control each other by ostracizing those who step out of the norm.
This tendency to resist change and uphold existing institutions for the sake of identity, comfort, power and profit, is completely unsustainable and will only produce further imbalance, fragmentation, distortion and invariably, destruction. It's time to change.
From hunters and gathers, to the agricultural revolution, to the industrial revolution, the pattern is clear. It is time for a new social system, which reflects the understandings we have today.
The monetary system is a product of a period of time where scarcity was a reality. Now, with the age of technology, it is no longer relevant to society; gone with the aberrant behavior it manifests.
Likewise, dominant worldviews, such a theistic religion, operate with the same social irrelevancy. Islam, Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, and all of the others, exist as barriers to personal and social growth, for each group perpetuates a closed worldview…and this finite understanding that they acknowledge is simply not possible in an emergent universe.
Yet, religion has succeeded in shutting down the awareness of this emergence by instilling the psychological distortion of Faith upon its followers, where logic and new information is rejected, in favor of traditionalized, outdated beliefs.
The concept of god is really a method of accounting for the nature of things. In the early days people didn't know enough about how things formed… how nature worked…so they invented their own little stories… and they made god in their own image… a guy that gets angry; when people don't behave right, he creates floods and earthquakes… and they say it is an act of god.
A cursory glance at the suppressed history of religion reveals that even the foundational myths themselves are emergent culminations, developed through influence, over time.
For example, a cardinal doctrine of the Christian faith is the death and resurrection of Christ. This notion is so important, that the Bible itself states: "And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain"(1 Cor 15:14).
Yet, it is very difficult to take this account literally for, not only is there no primary source denoting this supernatural event in secular history, awareness of the enormous number of pre-Christian saviors who also died and were resurrected, immediately puts the story in mythological territory by association.
Early Church figures, such as Tertullian, went to great lengths to break these associations; even claiming that the devil caused the similarities to occur… stating in 2nd century:
"The devil, whose business is to pervert the truth, mimics the exact circumstance of the Divine Sacraments. He baptizes his believers and promises forgiveness of sins…he celebrates the oblation of bread, and brings in the symbol of the resurrection. Let us therefore acknowledge the craftiness of the devil, who copied certain things of those that be Divine." Tertullian, (155 - 222 AD , CHAP. XL.- THE PRESCRIPTION AGAINST HERETICS. )
What is truly sad however, is that when we cease the idea that the stories from Christianity, Judaism and Islam, and all the others, are Literal History, and accept them for what they really are, which are purely allegorical expressions, derived from many faiths…we see that all religions share a common thread, and it is this unifying imperative that needs to be recognized and appreciated.
Religious belief has caused more fragmentation and conflict than any other ideology…Christianity alone has 34,000 different sub groups( Source: World Christian Encyclopedia)
The bible is subject to interpretation. When you read it you say: ' I think Jesus meant this... I think jobe meant that… oh no- he meant this'… So you have the Lutheran the Seventh-
Day-Adventist; the catholic. And a church divided, is no church at all.
(echo " and a church divided is no church at all)
And this point on division, which is a trademark of all theistic religions, brings us to our second failure of awareness. The false assumption of separation, through the rejection of the symbiotic relationship of life.
Apart from the understanding that all natural systems are emergent, where all notions of reality will be constantly developed, altered and even eradicated, we must also understand that all systems are, in fact, invented fragments, merely for the sake of conversation, for there is no such thing as independence in nature. The whole of nature is a unified system of interdependent variables, each a cause and a reaction, existing only as concentrated whole.
You don't see the plug connected to the environment, so it looks like we're free, wondering around. Take the oxygen away, we all die immediately; take planet life away, we die, and without the sun, all the plants die. So we are connected.
We really must take into account, the totality. This isn't just a human experience on this planet, this is a total experience and we know we cant survive without planet and animals; we know we can't survive without the four elements, you know. And so, when are we really going to start taking that into account. That's what it is to be successful. Success depends on how well we relate to everything around us. I am very aware of the fact that my grandson cannot possibly hope to inherit a sustainable, peaceful, stable, socially just world, unless every child today growing up in Ethiopia; in Indonesia, in Bolivia; in Palestine and Israel… as has that same expectations. You gotta take care of the whole community, or you are going to have serious problems. And now we have to see that the whole world is the community. And we must all take care of each other that way, and it's not just a community of humans beings… it is a community of plant and animals and elements, and we really need to understand that. That's what is going to bring us joy too… and pleasure. That's what's missing our lives right now. We can call it spirituality… but the fact of the matter is, joy comes from that…bliss of connectness.
That's our God spirit… that's that side of ourselves that really feels it… you can feel it deep inside you… it is this amazing wonderful feeling and you know it when you get it. You don't get it from money. You get it from connection.
[BILL HICKS SAMPLE]
Now if that isn't a Hazard to this country. How are we gonna keep building nuclear weapons, you know what I mean! What going to happen to the arms industry, when we realize we are all one?! It's gonna fuck up the economy! The economy that's fake anyway! ( echo x 4)
Which would be a real bummer… you can see why the government is cracking down, on the idea of experiencing unconditional love.
TEXT: " I BELIEVE THAT UNARMED TRUTH AND UNCONDITIONAL LOVE WILL HAVE THE FINAL WORD IN REALITY" - Martin Luther King Jr.
Once we understand that the integrity of our personal existences are completely dependent on the integrity of everything else in our world… we have truly understood the meaning of unconditional love. For love is extensionality…and seeing everything as you and you as everything, can have no conditionalities…. For, in fact, we are all everything at once.
If it's true that we are all from the center of a star, every atom in each of us from the center of a star, then we're all the same thing. Even a coke machine or a cigarette butt in the street in Buffalo, is made out of atoms that came from a star… they have all recycled thousands of times, as have you and I. And therefore, its only me out there, so what is there to be afraid of? What is there that needs solace seeking? Nothing. There is nothing to be afraid of because it's all us. The trouble is we have been separated by being born and given a name and an identity and being individuated. We have been separated from the oneness and that's what religion exploits… that people have this yearning to be part of the overall one again. So they exploit that. They it god and they say he has rules… and I think that's cruel. I think you can do it absent religion.
[TEXT ON SCREEN: CARL SAGAN QUOTE:]
An extraterrestrial visitor examining the difference among human societies would find those differences trivial compared to the similarities. Our lives, our past and our future are tied to the sun, the moon and the stars…We humans have seen the atoms which constitute all of nature and the forces that sculpted this work…and we, who embody the local eyes and ears and thoughts and feelings of the cosmos, have begun to wonder about our origins…star stuff contemplating the stars, organized collections of ten billion billion billion atoms, contemplating the evolution of nature, tracing that long path by which it arrived at consciousness here on the planet earth…Our loyalties are to the species and the to the planet. Our obligation to survive and flourish is owed now just to ourselves but also to that cosmos ancient and vast from which we spring. We are on Species. We are start stuff harvesting starlight.
It is time to claim the unity, our outmoded social systems have broken apart …. And work together to create a sustainable global society, where everyone is taken care of and everyone is truly free.
Your personal beliefs, whatever they may be, are meaningless when it comes to the necessities of life. Every human being is born naked, needing warmth, food, water, shelter... Everything else is auxiliary. Therefore, the most important issue at hand is the intelligent management of the earth resources. This can never be accomplished in a monetary system, for the pursuit of profit, is the pursuit of self-interest and therefore imbalance is inherent. Simultaneously, politicians are useless, for our true problems in life are technical, not political. Furthermore ideologies that separate humanity, such as religion, need strong reflection in the community in regard to its value, purpose and social relevancy. Hopefully, through time, religion will lose its materialism and basis in superstition, and move into the useful field, of philosophy.
The fact is, society today is backwards, with politicians constantly talking about protection and security, rather than creation, unity and progress.
The US alone now spends about 500 Billion dollars annually on defense… that is enough to send every high school senior in America to a 4 yr collage.
In the 1940s, the Manhattan Project produced the first true weapon of mass destruction. This program employed 130,000 people at an extreme financial cost.
Image what our life would be like today, if that group of scientists instead of working on a way of killing people, worked on a way to create a self sustaining, abundant world. Life today, would be very very different, if that was their goal.
Instead of weapons of mass destruction…It is time to unleash something much more powerful… Weapons of Mass Creation. Our true divinity is our ability to create, and armed with the understanding of the Symbiotic connections of life, while being guided by the emergent nature of reality, there is nothing we cannot do or accomplish.
Of course, we face strong barriers, in the form of established power structures that refuse to change.
At the heart of these structures is the monetary system. As explained earlier, the fractional reserve policy is a form of slavery through debt, where it is literally impossible for society to be free. In turn, free market capitalism in the form of free trade, uses debt to imprison the world and manipulate countries into subservience to a handful of large business and political powers. Apart form these obvious amoralities; the system itself is based on competition, which immediately destroys the possibility of large-scale collaborations for the common good, hence paralyzing any attempt at true global sustainability.
These financial and corporate structures are now obsolete and they must be outgrown.
Of course, we cannot be naïve enough to think that the business and financial elite are going to subscribe to this idea, for they will lose power and control. Therefore, peaceful. Yet highly strategic action must be taken. The most powerful course of action is simple. We have to alter our behavior to force the power structure to the will of the people.
We must stop supporting the system.
The only way the establishment will change, is by our refusal to participate,
…while continuously acknowledging it endless flaws and corruptions.
They're not going to give up the monetary system because of our designs and what we recommend. The system has to fail, and people have to lose confidence in their elected leaders. That will be a major turning point, if the Venus project is offered as a possible alternative. If not, I fear the consequences. The trends now indicate that our country is going bankrupt. The probability is, our country will move toward a military dictatorship, to prevent riots and complete social break down. Once the US breaks down, all the other cultures will under go similar things.
As of now, the world financial system is on the brink of collapse, due to its own shortcomings. The comptroller of currency stated in 2003 that the interest on the US national debt will not be affordable in less than 10 years. This theoretically means total bankruptcy for the US economy. And it's implications for the world, are immense.
In turn, the fractional reserve based monetary system is reaching its theoretical limits of expansion and the banking failures you are seeing are just the beginning. This is why inflation is skyrocketing, all debt is at record levels and the government and fed are hemorrhaging new money to bail out the corrupt system. For, the only way to keep the banks going is by making more money… the only way to make more money is to create more debt and inflation. It is simply a matter of time before the tables turn and there is no one willing to take new loans, while defaults grow, as people are unable to afford their current loans. Then the expansion of money will stop and contraction will begin on a scale never before seen, ending a century long, pyramid scheme. This has already begun.
Therefore, we need to expose this financial failure for what it is, using this weakness
to our advantage.
Here are some suggestions:
1) Expose the Banking Fraud. Citibank, and JP Morgan Chase and Bank of America are the most powerful controllers within the Corrupt Federal Reserve System. Its time to boycott these institutions. If you have a bank account or a credit card with any of them, move your money to another bank. If you have a mortgage, refinance with another bank. If you own their stock, sell it. If you work for them, quit. This gesture will express contempt for true power behind the private banking cartel, known as the Federal Reserve. And create awareness about the fraud of the banking system itself.
2) Turn off the TV News. Visit the emerging, independent news agencies on Internet for your information. CNN, NBC, ABC, FOX and all the others, present all news, pre-filtered to maintain the status quo.
With 4 corporations owning all major media outlets, objective information is impossible. This is the true beauty of the Internet and the establishment has been losing control because of this free flow of information. We must protect the Internet at all times, as it is truly our savior right now
3) Don't ever allow yourself, your family, or anyone you know… to ever join, the military. This is an obsolete institution, now used exclusively for maintaining an establishment that is not longer relevant. US soldiers in Iraq, work for US corporations, not the people. Propaganda forces us to believe that war is natural, and the military is an honorable institution. Well, if war is natural, why are there 18 suicides every single day by America veterans, who have post-traumatic stress disorder? If our military men and woman are so honored, why it is that 25% of the American homeless population are veterans.
4) Stop supporting the energy companies. If you live in a detached house, get off the grid. Investigate every means of making your home self-sustainable with clean energy. Solar, wind and other renewable energies are now affordable, consumer realities and considering the never-ending, raising cost of traditional energies, it likely will be a cheaper investment over time. If you drive, get the smallest car you can, and consider using one of the many conversion technologies that can enable your car to be a hybrid, electric or run on anything other than Establishment fuels.
5) Reject the Political system. The illusion of democracy is an insult to our intelligence. In a monetary system there is no such thing as a true democracy… and there never was. We have 2 political parties owned by the same set of corporate lobbyists.
They are placed in their positions by the corporations, with popularity, artificially projected by their media. In a system of inherent corruption, the change of personal every couple of years has very little relevance. Instead of pretending the political game has any true meaning, focus your energies on how to transcend this failed system.
6) Join the movement, Go thezeitgeistmovement.com and help us create the largest mass movement for social change, the world has ever seen. We must mobilize and educate everyone about the inherent corruption of our current world system, along with the only true, sustainable solution- declaring all the natural resources on the planet as common heritage to all people, while informing everyone as to the true state of technology and how we can all be free if the world works together, rather than fights.
The choice lies with you. You can continue being a slave to the financial system, and watch the continuous wars, depressions and injustice across the globe, while placating yourself with vain entertainment and materialistic garbage…
Or you can focus your energy on true meaningful, lasting holistic change, which actually has the realistic ability to support and free all humans, with no one left behind.
But, in the end, the most relevant change must occur first inside of you. The real revolution is the Revolution of Consciousness and each one of us first needs to eliminate the divisionary, materialistic noise, we have been conditioned to think is true…while discovering, amplifying and aligning with the signal coming from our true, empirical oneness. It's up to you.
"What we are try [to do ]… in all these discussions and talks here is to see if we cannot radically bring about a transformation of the mind. No accept thing as they are! But to understand it, to go into it, to examine it… to give your heart and your mind with everything you have to find out… a way of living differently. But that depend on you and not somebody else. Because in this there is no teacher; no pupil…there is no leader.
There is no guru. There is no master, no savior...You yourself are the teacher and the pupil; you are the master, you are the guru, you are the leader. You are everything!
And… to understand is to transform what is.

Part One: The Greatest Story Ever Told
This is the sun. As far back as 10 thousand B.C.E., history is abundant with carvings [M] and writings reflecting people's respect and adoration for this object [S1]. And it is simple to understand why as every morning the sun would rise, bringing vision, warmth, and security, saving man from the cold, blind, predator-filled darkness of night. Without it, the cultures understood, the crops would not grow, and life on the planet would not survive. These realities made the sun the most adored object of all time.[M] Likewise, they were also very aware of the stars.[M] The tracking of the stars allowed them to recognize and anticipate events which occurred over long periods of time, such as eclipses and full moons.[M] They in turn catalogued celestial groups into what we know today as constellations.[S2] This is the cross of the Zodiac, one of the oldest conceptual images in human history. [M] It reflects the sun as it figuratively passes through the 12 major constellations over the course of a year. It also reflects the 12 months of the year, the 4 seasons, and the solstices and equinoxes [S3] . The term Zodiac relates to the fact that constellations were anthropomorphized, or personified, as figures, or animals.[S4] [M] In other words, the early civilizations did not just follow the sun and stars, they personified them with elaborate myths involving their movements and relationships. [S5] [M] The sun, with its life-giving and -saving qualities was personified as a representative of the unseen creator or god...[M]"God's Sun,"[M] the light of the world, the savior of human kind.[S6] Likewise, the 12 constellations represented places of travel for God's Sun and were identified by names, usually representing elements of nature that happened during that period of time. For example, Aquarius, the water bearer, who brings the Spring rains.[S7] [M] [D] This is Horus.[M] He is the Sun God of Egypt of around 3000 BC [S8] [D]. He is the sun, anthropomorphized, and his life is a series of allegorical myths involving the sun's movement in the sky. [S9] [S10] [M] From the ancient hieroglyphics in Egypt, we know much about this solar messiah. For instance, Horus, being the sun, or the light, had an enemy known as Set and Set [D] was the personification of the darkness or night .[M] [S11] And, metaphorically speaking, every morning Horus would win the battle against Set - while in the evening, Set would conquer Horus and send him into the underworld. [S12] [S13] It is important to note that "dark vs. light" or "good vs. evil" is one of the most ubiquitous mythological dualities ever known and is still expressed on many levels to this day. Broadly speaking, the story of Horus is as follows: Horus was born on December 25th [S14] [S15] of the virgin Isis-Meri.[S16] [S17] [S18] [D] [M] His birth was accompanied by a star in the east [S19], and upon his birth we was adored by three kings. [M] [S20] [S21] At the age of 12, he was a prodigal child teacher, and at the age of 30 [S22] [S23] he was baptized by a figure known as Anup [M] and thus began his ministry[S24] [M]. Horus had 12 disciples[S25] he traveled about with, performing miracles[S26] [S27]such as healing the sick[S28] and walking on water[S29]. Horus was known by many gestural names such as The Truth, The Light, God's Annointed Son, The Good Shepherd, The Lamb of God, and many others[S30] [S31]. After being betrayed by Typhon[S32], Horus was crucified[S33] [S34], buried for 3 days[S35], and thus, resurrected.[S36] [S37] [M].
These attributes of Horus, whether original or not, seem to permeate in many cultures of the world, for many other gods are found to have the same general mythological structure.
Krishna, of India, born of the virgin Devaki with a star in the east signaling his coming. He performed miracles with his disciples, and upon his death was resurrected.
[S44] [S45] [S46] [S47] [S48] [M] [M2] [D]
Dionysus of Greece, born of a virgin on December 25th, was a traveling teacher who performed miracles such as turning water into wine, he was referred to as the "King of Kings," "God's Only Begotten Son," "The Alpha and Omega," and many others, and upon his death, he was resurrected.
[S49] [S50] [S51] [S52] [S53] [M]
Mithra, of Persia, born of a virgin on December 25th, he had 12 disciples and performed miracles, and upon his death was buried for 3 days and thus resurrected, he was also referred to as "The Truth," "The Light," and many others. Interestingly, the sacred day of worship of Mithra was Sunday.
[S54] [S55] [S56] [S57] [S58] [M]
The fact of the matter is there are numerous saviors, from different periods, from all over the world, which subscribe to these general characteristics. The question remains: why these attributes, why the virgin birth on December 25th, why dead for three days and the inevitable resurrection, why 12 disciples or followers? [M] To find out, let's examine the most recent of the solar messiahs. Jesus Christ was born of the virgin Mary on December 25th [D] in Bethlehem, his birth was announced by a star in the east, which three kings or magi followed to locate and adorn the new savior.[D] He was a child teacher at 12, at the age of 30 he was baptized by John the Baptist, and thus began his ministry. Jesus had 12 disciples which he traveled about with performing miracles such as healing the sick, walking on water, raising the dead, he was also known as the "King of Kings," the "Son of God," the "Light of the World," the "Alpha and Omega," the "Lamb of God," and many many others. After being betrayed by his disciple Judas and sold for 30 pieces of silver, he was crucified, placed in a tomb and after 3 days was resurrected and ascended into Heaven.[S59] First of all, the birth sequence is completely astrological. The star in the east is Sirius, the brightest star in the night sky, which, on December 24th, aligns with the 3 brightest stars in Orion's Belt. [S60] [M] These 3 bright stars in Orion's belt are called today what they were called in ancient times: The Three Kings.[S61] [S62] The Three Kings and the brightest star, Sirius, all point to the place of the sunrise on December 25th.[S63] [M] This is why the Three Kings "follow" the star in the east, in order to locate the sunrise -- the birth of the sun.[S64] [M] The Virgin Mary is the constellation Virgo, [S65] also known as Virgo the Virgin. Virgo is also referred to as the House of Bread [S69] [S70], and the representation of Virgo is a virgin holding a sheaf of wheat. This House of Bread and its symbol of wheat represents August and September, the time of harvest. [D] In turn, Bethlehem, in fact, literally translates to "house of bread". [M] [S71] Bethlehem is thus a reference to the constellation Virgo , a place in the sky, not on Earth.[M] [S72] There is another very interesting phenomenon that occurs around December 25th, or the winter solstice. From the summer solstice to the winter solstice, the days become shorter and colder. And from the perspective of the northern hemisphere, the sun appears to move south and get smaller and more scarce. The shortening of the days and the expiration of the crops when approaching the winter solstice symbolized the process of death to the ancients. It was the death of the Sun. [S73] And by December 22nd, the Sun's demise was fully realized, for the Sun, having moved south continually for 6 months, makes it to it's lowest point in the sky. Here a curious thing occurs: the Sun stops moving south, at least perceivably, for 3 days.[S74] [M] And during this 3 day pause, the Sun resides in the vicinity of the Southern Cross, or Crux, constellation.[S75] [S76] [M] And after this time on December 25th, the Sun moves 1 degree, this time north, foreshadowing longer days, warmth, and Spring.[S77] And thus it was said: the Sun died on the cross, [D] was dead for 3 days, only to be resurrected or born again.[S78] [S79]This is why Jesus and numerous other Sun Gods share the crucifixion, 3-day death, and resurrection concept. [S80] [M] It is the Sun's transition period before it shifts its direction back into the Northern Hemisphere, bringing Spring, and thus salvation.[S81] [S82] [M] However, they did not celebrate the resurrection of the Sun until the spring equinox, or Easter. This is because at the spring equinox, the Sun officially overpowers the evil darkness, as daytime thereafter becomes longer in duration than the night, and the revitalizing conditions of spring emerge.[M] [S83] Now, probably the most obvious of all the astrological symbolism around Jesus regards the 12 disciples. They are simply the 12 constellations of the Zodiac, which Jesus, being the Sun, travels about with. [S84] [S85] [S86] [S87] [M] In fact, the number 12 is replete throughout the Bible. [M] Coming back to the cross of the Zodiac, the figurative life of the Sun, this was not just an artistic expression or tool to track the Sun's movements. It was also a Pagan spiritual symbol, [S88] the shorthand of which looked like this. [S89] This is not a symbol of Christianity. [M] It is a Pagan adaptation of the cross of the Zodiac. [S90] [S91] This is why Jesus in early occult art is always shown with his head on the cross, for Jesus is the Sun, the Sun of God, the Light of the World, [S92] the Risen Savior, [S93] who will "come again,"[S94] as it does every morning, the Glory of God [S95] who defends against the works of darkness,[S96] as he is "born again" [S97] every morning, and can be seen "coming in the clouds,"[S98] "up in Heaven,"[S99]with his "Crown of Thorns,"[S100] or, sun rays.
Now, of the many astrological-astronomical metaphors in the Bible, one of the most important has to do with the ages. Throughout the scriptures there are numerous references to the "Age." In order to understand this, we need to be familiar with the phenomenon known as the precession of the equinoxes. The ancient Egyptians along with cultures long before them recognized that approximately every 2150 [D] years the sunrise on the morning of the spring equinox would occur at a different sign of the Zodiac. [M] This has to do with a slow angular wobble that the Earth maintains as it rotates on it's axis.It is called a precession because the constellations go backwards, rather than through the normal yearly cycle. [S101] The amount of time that it takes for the precession to go through all 12 signs is roughly 25,765 years. [S102] This is also called the "Great Year," [S103] and ancient societies were very aware of this. They referred to each 2150 year period as an "age." From 4300 b.c. to 2150 b.c., it was the Age of Taurus, the Bull. From 2150 b.c. to 1 a.d., it was the Age of Aries, the Ram, and from 1 a.d. to 2150 a.d. it is the Age of Pisces, the age we are still in to this day, and in and around 2150, we will enter the new age: the Age of Aquarius. [S104] [S105]
Now, the Bible reflects, broadly speaking, a symbolic movement through 3 ages, while foreshadowing a 4th. In the Old Testament when Moses comes down Mount Sinai with the 10 Commandments, he is very upset to see his people worshiping a golden bull calf.[S106] In fact, he shattered the stone tablets and instructed his people to kill each other in order to purify themselves. [S107] Most Biblical scholars would attribute this anger to the fact that the Israelites were worshiping a false idol, [S108] or something to that effect. The reality is - the golden bull is Taurus the Bull, and Moses represents the new Age of Aries the Ram. [S109] [M] This is why Jews even today still blow the Ram's horn. [S110] [M] Moses represents the new Age of Aries, [S111] and upon the new age, everyone must shed the old age. Other deities mark these transitions as well, such as Mithra, a pre-Christian god who kills the bull, in the same symbology. [S112] [S113] [M] Now Jesus is the figure who ushers in the age following Aries, the Age of Pisces or the Two Fish.[S114] [S115] [M] Fish symbolism is very abundant in the New Testament. Jesus feeds 5000 people with bread and "2 fish." [S116] When he begins his ministry walking along Galilei, he befriends 2 fisherman, who follow him. [S117] [M] And I think we've all seen the Jesus-fish on the backs of people's cars. Little do they know what it actually means. It is a Pagan astrological symbolism for the Sun's Kingdom during the Age of Pisces.[S118] [M] Also, Jesus' assumed birth date is essentially the start of this age. At Luke 22:10 when Jesus is asked by his disciples where the last passover will be, Jesus replied: "Behold, when ye are entered into the city, there shall a man meet you bearing a pitcher of water... follow him into the house where he entereth in." This scripture is by far one of the most revealing of all the astrological references. The man bearing a pitcher of water is Aquarius, the water-bearer, who is always pictured as a man pouring out a pitcher of water. [S119] He represents the age after Pisces, and when the Sun, "God's Sun", leaves the Age of Pisces, "Jesus", it will go into the House of Aquarius, as Aquarius follows Pisces in the precession of the equinoxes. Also Jesus is saying is that after the Age of Pisces will come the Age of Aquarius. [S120] [M] Now, we have all heard about the end times and the end of the world. The cartoonish depictions in the Book of Revelation aside, a main source of this idea comes from Matthew 28:20, where Jesus says "I will be with you even to the end of the world." [S121] However, in King James Version, "world" is a mistranslation, among many mistranslations. The actual word being used is "aeon", which means "age." "I will be with you even to the end of the age." Which is true, as Jesus' Solar Piscean personification will end when the Sun enters the Age of Aquarius. [S122] The entire concept of end times and the end of the world is a misinterpreted astrological allegory.[S123] [S124] [S125] [S126] [S127] [M] Let's tell that to the approximately 100 million people in America who believe the end of the world is coming. Furthermore, the character of Jesus, being a literary and astrological hybrid, is most explicitly a plagiarization of the Egyptian Sun-god Horus.[S128] [S129] [S130] [S131]For example, inscribed about 3500 years ago, on the walls at the Temple of Luxor in Egypt are images of the enunciation, the miracle conception, the birth, and the adoration of Horus. [S132] The images begin with Thoth announcing to the virgin Isis that she will conceive Horus, then Nef the holy ghost impregnating the virgin, and then the virgin birth and the adoration.[S133] [S134] [M] This is exactly the story of Jesus' miracle conception. In fact, the literary similarities between the Egyptian religion and the Christian religion are staggering. [M] [S135] And the plagiarism is continuous. The story of Noah and Noah's Ark is taken directly from tradition. The concept of a Great Flood is ubiquitous throughout the ancient world, with over 200 cited claims in different periods and times. [S136] [S137] [M] However, one need look no further for a pre-Christian source than the Epic of Gilgamesh,[S138] [S139] written in 2600 b.c. This story talks of a Great Flood commanded by God, an Ark with saved animals upon it, and even the release and return of a dove, all held in common with the biblical story, among many other similarities.[S140] [M] And then there is the plagiarized story of Moses. Upon Moses' birth, it is said that he was placed in a reed basket and set adrift in a river in order to avoid infanticide. He was later rescued by a daughter of royalty and raised by her as a Prince.[S141] This baby in a basket story was lifted directly from the myth of Sargon of Akkad of around 2250 b.c. Sargon was born, placed in a reed basket in order to avoid infanticide, and set adrift in a river. He was in turn rescued and raised by Akki, a royal mid-wife.[S142] [S143] [M] Furthermore, Moses is known as the Law Giver, the giver of the Ten Commandments,[S144] the Mosaic Law. However, the idea of a Law being passed from God to a prophet up on a mountain is also a very old motif. Moses is just another law giver in a long line of law givers in mythological history. [S145] In India, Manou was the great law giver. [S146] In Crete, Minos ascended Mount Dicta, where Zeus gave him the sacred laws. [S147] While in Egypt there was Mises, [S148] who carried stone tablets and upon them the laws of god were written. Manou- Minos-Mises-Moses. And as far as the Ten Commandments, they are taken outright from Spell 125 of the Egyptian Book of the Dead. [S149] What the Book of the Dead phrased "I have not stolen" became "Thou shall not steal," "I have not killed" became "Thou shall not kill," "I have not told lies" became "Thou shall not bear false witness" and so forth. [S150] In fact, the Egyptian religion is likely the primary foundational basis for the Judeo-Christian theology. [M] Baptism, [S151] afterlife,[S152] final judgment, [S153] virgin birth [S154] death and resurrection, [S155] crucifixion, [S156] the ark of the covenant, [S157]circumcision, [S158] [S159] saviors,[S160] holy communion, [S161] the great flood, [S162] Easter, [S163] Christmas [S164] [S165] , Passover, [S166] and many many more, are all attributes of Egyptian ideas, long predating Christianity and Judaism. Justin Martyr, one of the first Christian historians and defenders, wrote: "When we say that he, Jesus Christ, our teacher, was produced without sexual union, was crucified and died, and rose again, and ascended into Heaven, we propound nothing different from what you believe regarding those who you esteem Sons of Jupiter." [S167] In a different writing, Justin Martyr said "He was born of a virgin, accept this in common with what you believe of Perseus." [S168] It's obvious that Justin and other early Christians knew how similar Christianity was to the Pagan religions. However, Justin had a solution. As far as he was concerned, the Devil did it. The Devil had the foresight to come before Christ, and create his characteristics in the Pagan world. [S169] The Bible is nothing more than an astro-theological literary fold hybrid, just like nearly all religious myths before it. [S170] [S171] [S172] [S173] [S174]In fact, the aspect of transference, of one character's attributes to a new character, can be found within the book itself. In the Old Testament there's the story of Joseph. Joseph was a prototype for Jesus. Joseph was born of a miracle birth, [S175] Jesus was born of a miracle birth. [S176] Joseph was of 12 brothers, [S177] Jesus had 12 disciples. [S178] Joseph was sold for 20 pieces of silver, [S179]Jesus was sold for 30 pieces of silver. [S180] Brother "Judah" suggests the sale of Joseph, [S181] disciple "Judas" suggests the sale of Jesus. [S182] Joseph began his work at the age of 30, [S183]Jesus began his work at the age of 30. [S184] The parallels go on and on. Furthermore, is there any non-Biblical historical evidence of any person, living with the name Jesus, the Son of Mary, who traveled about with 12 followers, healing people and the like? There are numerous historians who lived in and around the Mediterranean either during or soon after the assumed life of Jesus.[S185] How many of these historians document this figure? Not one. [S186] However, to be fair, that doesn't mean defenders of the Historical Jesus haven't claimed the contrary. Four historians are typically referenced to justify Jesus's existence. Pliny the younger, Suetonius, Tacitus and the first three. [M] [S187] Each one of their entries consists of only a few sentences at best and only refer to "Christus" or the Christ, which in fact is not name but a title. It means the "Anointed one" [S188] The fourth source is Josephus and this source has been proven to be a forgery for hundreds of years.[S189] Sadly, it is still cited as truth.
You would think that a guy who rose from the dead and ascended into Heaven for all eyes to see and performed the wealth of miracles acclaimed to him would have made it into the historical record. It didn't because once the evidence is weighed, there are very high odds that the figure known as Jesus, did not even exist.[S190] [S191] [S192] [S193]
The reality is, Jesus was the Solar Deity of the Gnostic Christian sect, [S194] [S195] [S196] and like all other Pagan gods, he was a mythical figure. It was the political establishment that sought to historize the Jesus figure for social control. By 325 a.d. in Rome, emperor Constantine convened the Council of Nicea. [S197] It was during this meeting that the politically motivated Christian Doctrines were established and thus began a long history of Christian bloodshed and spiritual fraud. And for the next 1600 years, the Vatican maintained a political stranglehold on all of Europe, leading to such joyous periods as the Dark Ages, along with enlightening events such as the Crusades, and the Inquisition.
Christianity, along with all other theistic belief systems, is the fraud of the age. It serves to detach the species from the natural world, and likewise, each other. It supports blind submission to authority. It reduces human responsibility to the effect that "God" controls everything, and in turn awful crimes can be justified in the name of Divine Pursuit. And most importantly, it empowers those who use the myth to manipulate and control societies. The religious myth is the most powerful device ever created, and serves as the psychological soil upon which other myths can flourish

Part Two: All The World's a Stage "…as if a demolition team set off, when you do the demolition of an old building." "…it looks like one of those things when an old building being purposely dynamited and blown up."
"…anybody that ever watched a building being demolish on purpose knows, that if you're going to do this, you have to get at the under-infrastructure of the building to bring it down."
"The way this structure is collapsing is something that was planted, it's not accidental, that the first tower just happens to collapse, and the second one collapse in exactly the same way. How they accomplish this, we don't know."
"The building collapsed to dust. You don't find a desk, you don't find a chair. You don't find a telephone, a computer. The biggest piece of a telephone I found was half of a keypad, and it was about this big."
-"What happened to the concrete?"
-"The concrete was pulverized. Rivers and rivers of this dust powder, two or three inches thick. The concrete was just uh… pulverized!"
"(…) we've all seen too much on television before, when a building is deliberately destroyed by well placed dynamite to knock it down."
"…it's as if, as if they had detonators, yes detonators, planted to take down the building, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, yes"
"…I heard a second explosion"
"it was a uh… heavy duty explosion…"
"…there was a secondary explosion and then a subsequent collapse"
"…close to blow and it knocked everybody else"
"to me sounded like, sounded like an explosion.."
"it sounded like gunfire, bang-bang-bang-bang-bang-bang-bang! And then all of the sudden, three big explosions"
"we heard a big explosion coming down"
"…the top part of the building just blew up"
"we saw some king of explosion"
"…by the force of the explosions…"
"…big explosion, we went back to the eight floor"
" when we got to the lobby, it's this big explosion"
"…the lobby looked as though, a bomb had exploded there"
"huge explosions, now raining debris … "
"…there's been a huge explosion"
"huge explosion that we all heard and felt"
"we just witness some kind of (…) explosion and uh"
"…a very loud blast explosion "
"a secondary explosion, tower 1-10"
"there is some other bomb going off. He thinks there were actually devices that were planted in the buildings" "planted in the building"
[The 911 Myth:
19 hijackers, directed by Osama Bin Laden, took over 4 commercial jets
with box cutters and, while evading the Air Defense System (NORAD), hit
75% of their targets. In turn, World Trade Towers 1, 2 & 7 collapsed due
to structural failure through fire in a "pancake" fashion, while the
plane that hit the Pentagon vaporized upon impact, as did the plane
that crashed in Shanksville. The 911 Commission found that there were
no warnings for this act of terrorism, while multiple government
failures prevented adequate defense.]
"I don't think anybody could have predicted that they would try to use an airplane as a missile, a hijacked airplane as a missile…"
"nobody in our government at least, and I don't think the previous government could have envisioned flying planes into buildings"
"no specific threats involving, really domestic operations involving what happened obviously, the cities, airlines and so on"
"there… I… were… I… uhm… no warning signs that I am aware of"
"USA Today reports that in the two years before the attacks on september 11th, NORAD conducted exercises using hijacked airliners as weapons, and one target… was the world trade center"
[Cover of FEMA response manual, 1997]
[Operation "Mascal", October 2000: Simulated a plane crash into the Pentagon]
"In confidential documents from the Philippines obtained by CNN, the plan was clear. He would board any American commercial aircraft, control its cockpit, and dive it on the CIA headquarters. Others buildings targeted: the Pentagon and the World Trade Center."
"Security and counter terrorism was blinking red, in the words of George Tenet, and the warnings of an imminent attack was so severe, that something dramatic should have been done. It was unparalleled. Instead, our president went on a month long vacation?"
"The head of Pakistani intelligence, the ISI, Mahmoud Ahmed requested Omar Sheik to wire a hundred thousand dollars to Mohamed Atta, who was the lead hijacker. "
"The hijacker Mohamed Atta received wire transfers via Pakistan. The man sending the money to Atta is believed to be Ahmed Omar Said Sheik."
"Omar Sheik admitted he was supported by the Pakistan government's Intelligence Services, the ISI."
[No inquiry was ever made as to why General Ahmad ordered $100K to be sent to Mohamed Atta.]
[On the morning of September 11, Government officials were having
BREAKFAST with General Ahmad in Washington.]
[The 911 Commission deemed the financing of the attacks was 'of LITTLE
significance" in their official report.]
"Although we are told that 4 or 5 of the alleged hijackers were on each of the flights, so their names should have been on their flight manifests. But the flight manifests that have been released contained, neither the name of the alleged hijackers, nor any Arab names
"We know that the men that were supposedly the hijackers, had their houses, cars, credit cards, paid for by the U.S. Government. They were, in truth, agents."
"Evidence was also apparently planted. The passport of one of the hijackers of Flight 11, was allegedly found in the rubble."
"Goes through the fireball, through the side of the plane and comes down to the ground unscathed! But something happened, for six months they reported they had this passport. Hey we got it, we got the proof, and then the guy stood up and he was alive!"
"Several of these nineteen men are still alive."
"I couldn't believe it when the FBI put me on their list. They gave my
name and my date of birth, but I am not a suicide bomber. I am here. I
am alive. I have no idea how to fly a plane"]
[At least 6 of the "hijackers" are still alive.]
[The FBI has to this day not revised their list.]
[No evidence has ever linked any of the alive or dead "hijackers" to Osama bin Laden.]
[Osama Bin Laden]
"Of course we're after Saddam Hussein, I mean uh, bin Laden… he's…"
"January 2001. The Bush administration, orders the FBI and intelligence agencies to back off investigations involving the bin Laden family including two of Osama Bin Laden's relatives, who were living, guess where, in Falls Church, VA, right next to CIA headquarters."
"When he was already America's most wanted criminal, he reportedly spent two weeks in an American hospital in Dubai, was treated by an American doctor, and visited by the local CIA agent."
"We have not seen one piece of evidence that links Osama bin Laden directly to the planning stages of September 11th."
"…this failure to provide proof, was later said to be unnecessary because bin Laden, in a video allegedly found in Afghanistan admitted responsibility for the attacks. This confession now is widely cited as proof, but the man in this video has darker skin, fuller cheeks and a
broader nose than Osama bin Laden in all other videos. We again seem to have planted evidence."
"In 1996, Osama's older brother Salim bin Laden, hired a man in Texas by the name of Jim Bath to handle all the investments in the United States for the bin Ladin family. Jim Bath also happens to be a person almost a lifelong friend and former national guard pilot with George W. Bush. The connections between the Bushes and bin Ladins become much more clear (…) when George H. W. Bush made trips to Saudi Arabia in 1998 and 2000 to meet with the bin Ladin family on behalf of the company the Carlyle Group."
[George H.W. Bush was meeting with Osama's older brother, Shafig bin Laden, on the morning of 9/11 in a Carlyle Group function. The Carlyle Group is one of the world's largest defense contractors, which continue to reap massive profits off of the post 911 "War on Terrorism" and Afghan/Iraq Wars.]
"How could anyone fly a 60 Ton, 125 foot wide, 44 foot tall plane through this obstacle course?"
"The aircraft, before striking the Pentagon, reportedly executed a 270 degree downward spiral, and yet Hani Hanjour was known as a terrible pilot, who cannot safely fly even a small plane."
["He didn't care about the fact that he couldn't get through the course"
- Flight school employee]
["I am still to this day amazed that he could have flown into the
Pentagon… he could not fly at all." - Flight school employee.]
"No seats, no luggage, no bodies. Nothing but bricks and limestone."
"The official explanation is that the intense heat from the jet fuel vaporized the entire plane. Flight 77 had two Rolls Royce engines made of steel and titanium alloy and weight six tonnes each. It is scientifically impossible that tonnes of steel and titanium were vaporized by jet fuel."
"We were told that the bodies were able to be identified, either by their fingertips, or by their DNA, so what kind of fire can vaporize aluminum and tempered steel and yet leave human bodies intact. "
"From my close up inspection, there's no evidence of a plane having impacted anywhere near the Pentagon, and as I said, the only pieces left that you can see, are small enough that you can pick up with your hand."
"Shortly after the strike, government agents picked up debris, and carried it off. The entire lawn was covered by dirt and gravel so that any remaining forensic evidence was literally covered up. The videos from security cameras which would show what really hit the Pentagon, were immediately confiscated by the agents of the FBI. The Department of Justice has to this day, refused to release them. These videos would prove that the Pentagon was really hit by a 767. Most of us would assume, the government would release them."
[over 80 video recordings of the Pentagon strike are currently being withheld by the FBI]
"It looks like there's nothing there, except for a hole in the ground."
"Uh basically that's right. The only thing you can see from where we were, was a big gouge in the area and some broken trees. You can see some people working, walking around in the area, but from what we can see there was nothing much left. Any large pieces of debris at all? No, there was nothing, nothing you can distinguish that a plane had crashed there."
[Commercial plane crash in Nigeria.]
[Flight 93 "Crash" in Shanksville.]
[World Trace Center Towers 1, 2 & 7]
"Pancake theory, according to which the fires, while not melting the steel, heated it up sufficiently to cause the floors, weakened by the plane strikes, to break loose from the steel columns and this started a chain reaction."
"So you would expect them from that theory, which is the official theory, to see a whole stack of floors piled up on top of each other, and then a spindle of core columns standing too."
"The core of each of the twin towers consisted of 47 massive steel columns. If the floors had broken loose from them, these columns would've still been sticking up into the air, a thousand feet."
"The planes did not cut all those core columns…"
"We design the buildings to take the impact of a Boeing 707, hitting the building at any location."
"The building probably could sustain multiple impacts of jetliners."
"…that the plane flew straight into the buildings," -"straight through in, right", -"so you say that the buildings were actually designed to cope with a hole like that and still survive?" -"yes, it was, it was"
"if you were to drop a billiard ball from the top of the World Trade Center, 110 floors up there, it would have taken 8 to 10 seconds to hit the ground, encountering no resistance whatsoever."
"The twin towers came down at nearly free fall speed. Two hundred thousand tones of steel shatters and explodes outwards over 500 feet."
"This means that floors shattered at an average rate of about ten floors per second."
"There's no scenario for a pancake effect of buildings falling that allows them to fall at the rate of free fall."
"Now what can do that? What can move mass out of the way? Explosives."
"47 huge steel columns going up the core and they're interconnected, how do you get them to fail simultaneously so the core disappears. It looks like those core columns were cut."
"The way we do this is by cutting the beams at an angle."
[Core column after the collapse.]
[Notice the "cut" shape and the melted… or "Molten Metal".]
"I started looking at the molten metal. All three buildings, both towers in the rubble, in the basement areas, and Building 7 … there's these pools of molten metal.."
[For well over 6 weeks after the collapse, Hot spots of 2000F were documented in the debris.]
[That is 500F hotter than Jet fuel even burns.]
"You get down below and you see… molten steel… molten steel running down the channel rails, like you're in a foundry, like lava, from a volcano"
"The molten steel was found 'three, four and five weeks later, when the rubble was being removed'. He said that molten steel was also found at WTC7."
"So I'm looking through the official reports, what do they say about the molten metal..? they say nothing. Now, wait a minute… this is important evidence… where did that come from?"
"Thermite is so hot that just cuts through steel, structural steel for example, like a knife through butter. The products are molten iron and aluminum oxide, which goes off primarily as a dust. You know those enormous dust clouds? You can imagine when you assemble these chemicals on a large scale."
[Dr. Steven Jones
Physics Professor, BYU
Through Electron Microscope Analysis of the molted WTC Steel & the iron-rich microspheres in the dust, Dr. Jones found exact traces of not only the "Thermite" explosive compound, but, due to the high sulfur content, "Thermate", a patented brand of Thermite used in the demolition industry.]
"Molten metal pools under both towers after they collapse and building 7. Now building 7 wasn't even hit by a jet!"
"Part of the problem is that most people don't know much about building 7, due to the extraordinary secrecy surrounding this collapse."
"This is a 47 story skyscraper. This building fell at 5:25 p.m."
"It was not hit by a plane. This building had fires on only 2 or 3 floors."
"And it was brought down by what we know was a controlled demolition."
"Controlled demolitions, they look just like that, kink in the middle and then that building just comes straight down almost at free fall speed."
"They first blow one of the central columns so the building falls in on itself. Building 7 had a classic crimp or wedge, its central column was blown out first, so it didn't structurally damaged buildings just a few feet away from it."
[The Government's explanation for all three collapses was FIRE.]
[NEVER before or after 9/11, has any Steel building collapsed from fire.]
[Collapse Characteristics of World Trade Center 1, 2 & 7, fit the CONTROLLED DEMOLITION model EXACTLY.]
[Oh… Did I mention the sub-basement explosions? THAT OCCURRED SECONDS
BEFORE THE FIRST PLANE HIT]
”Our office was on the B1 level. As I was talking to a supervisor, at 8:46(am)…and all the sudden we here BOOM! An explosion so hard, it pushed up upwards. And it came from the Basement, between the B2 level and the B3 level. And when I went to verbalize… we hear BOOM… the impact of the plane at the top.”
“As I’m walking by the main freight car of the building, in the corridor… that’s when I got blown… I mean… the impact of the explosion threw me to the floor and that’s when everything started happening. All the sudden a big impact happened again…and all the ceiling tile was falling down… the light fixtures were falling. you know you got to go clear across the whole… from one to two trade center and all the sudden it happened all over again. Something else hit us to the floor, right in the basement you felt it, walls were caving in, everything going on…I know people that got killed in the basement, I know people that got broken legs in the basement, people who got reconstructive surgery because the walls hit them in the face.”
"According to standard operating procedures, if an FAA flight controller notices anything that suggests possible hijacking, controllers contact their superiors. If the problem within about a minute, the superiors ask NORAD, the North American Aerospace Defense Command, to send up or scramble jet fighters to find out what is going on. NORAD then issues the scramble order to the nearest Air Force base that has firefighters on alert. Although interceptions usually occur within 10 or so minutes, in this case 80 or so minutes had elapsed before fighters were even airborne."
"It's a mind-bending anomaly. Not a single US air force turns a wheel until it's too late. There are no jets at all."
"What if they were so confused, and had been so deliberately confused, that they couldn't respond."
"The reason they didn't know where to go, was because a number of conflicting and overlapping war game exercises were taking place (…) it involved the insertion of false radar blips, under radar screens on the northeast air defense sector"
FAA: "Hi, Boston Center TMU, we have a problem here. We have a hijacked aircraft headed towards New York. We need someone to scramble some F-16s or something up there, help us out."
NORAD: "Is this real world or exercise?"
"There was another exercise, Vigilant Warrior, which was in fact according to a NORAD source, a live-fly hijack drill being conducted at the same time. With only eight available fighter aircraft, and they have to be dispatched in pairs, they were dealing with as many as 22 possible hijacks on the day of 9/11. And they couldn't separate the war game exercises from the actual hijacks."
[In 2000, NORAD had 67 intercepts. 100% accuracy. On 9/11 they failed 4
times in one day.
On the morning of 9/11 he was in charge of all NORAD
orders from the command bunker under the White House.
In at least one of the many war games going on the morning of 9/11, planes being flown into building was a scenario]
"Page 172. The US Government has not been able to determine the origin of the money used for the 9/11 attacks. Ultimately, the question is of little practical significance"
"The American authorities had not manage to trace the source of the funding, and then the most amazing and disingenuous statement: 'ultimately it is of little consequence'. It is of massive consequence!"
"Doesn't it matter who paid for 9/11? "
"The collapse of building 7 has been recognized as a specially difficult to explain. The 9/11 Commission Report, implicitly admitted that it could not explain the collapse of this building, by not even mentioning it."
-"Why are you and the Vice President insisting on appearing together before the 9/11 Commission?"
-"Because the 9/11 Commission wants us to ask us questions, and that's why we're meeting, and I look forward to meeting with them and answering their questions."
-"And why are you appearing together rather than separately, which was their request?"
-"Because it's a good chance that both of us, to answer questions the 9/11 Commission is looking forward to asking us and am looking forward to answering them. Let's see…"
"Do you think they should be able to stand up and speak their own words? They should go under oath. Yeah, in public!"
[When Bush and Cheney met with the 9/11 Commission, they did so only on
their own terms:
They appeared together
They were not under oath
No press or family members were allowed to attend.
No recording of any kind was allowed
No transcript was allowed]
-"Don't you think the families deserve to have a transcript or to be able to see (…)"
-"Adam, you asked me this question yesterday, I got the same answer, yeah"
"The final report was a unanimous report. That means that if there was a single commissioner that had any objection about anything, that fact would be dropped from the report."
"We had found out that he, not only served in a transition team of the Bush administration, that he was a person who wrote a draft memo for the setup of the Bush administration's National Security Council. That he was an individual who wrote the preemptive war strategy, that was eventually used for the war in Iraq, and he is a close friend of Condolezza Rice's. We want him to resign."
"There is literally nothing in the 9/11 Report that the Bush Administration did not approve of."
"We can understand therefore that the Commission under Zelikow's leadership, would have ignored all of the evidence that would point to the truth. That 9/11 was a false flag operation and tended to authorize the doctrines and funds needed for a new level of imperial mobilization."
[Terrorism: 1) systematic use of terror, manifesting itself in violence or intimidation, for generating fear.]
"Armed with knives. Armed with chemical, biological and nuclear weapons. Fanatics. Terrorists. September 11th. September 11th. Killers. September 11th. Terrorists. Terrorists. Al Qaeda. Terrorists. Nuclear weapons. Terror. 9/11. Terror. Terror. Terror. Evil."

"Terrorism. The words are hypnotically repeated. Terrorism. Terrorists. Terrorist threat. And of course, believe-to-be-linked-to-al-Qaeda. But, it's the so-called War on Terrorism that it's our faces practically 24/7 as inescapable focus of our existence."
"One day, our grandchildren will look back on this time, and ask 'how was the war on terror won?'"
"The entire US ruling class, ruling elite, comes to see terrorism as the preferred means, indeed the only means to provide social cohesion, to provide an enemy image for the society to keep it together. According to Neo-Con theory from Carl Schmitt, you have to have an enemy image in order to have a society. And that's a very dangerous thing, because now it means that the entire social order, the political parties, intellectual life, politics in general, all based on a monstrous myth. Monstrous myth."
[Nearly all terror suspects detained are released without charges.
… but that's after they make it to the front page for you to see.]
[Terrorism: 2) technique used by Governments to manipulate public opinion in order to further an agenda.]
[Voice of Ted Gunderson, former FBI chief of LA, Dallas & Memphis operations.]
"Look, the CIA has done in this country, what they've done to us is unbelievable. Look at the terrorist acts that occurred… the CIA behind most if not all of them. We have the marine barracks, their embassy in Kenia, we had PanAm 103, we had the USS Cole, we had Oklahoma city, the World Trace Center in 1993."
"With the help of the terrorists blow up the World Trace Center the first time. They got the bomb, they got their drivers' license."
"The informant, yeah the informant called Salem, a 23 year old Egyptian army officer. He was given the assignment to put the bomb together and he went to his supervisor, his FBI supervisor, and he said we're going to put a dummy bomb in there, right? And the FBI supervisor said "no, we're gonna put a real bomb."
"The FBI actually carried out the attack on the World Trace Center in 1993. They actually hired Ahmal Salem and paid him one million dollars and gave him real explosives, a detonator, and told him to build a bomb and then give it to foolish people that he was controlling, to allow them to attack the WTC complex."
"Unfortunately for them, there were only 6 people killed. Not enough to pass anti-terror legislation. So what happened is two years later, April 1995 down comes Oklahoma city Murrah building. 168 people killed… a year later, the anti-terror legislation, which takes away many of our constitutional rights and civil liberties, is passed."
Three trains and a bus were bombed, killing 56 people.]
[That morning, an "Anti-terror exercise" just happened to be taking place as well
THE EXACT SAME BOMBING SCENARIO.
AT THE EXACT SAME TRAIN STATIONS

Part Three: Don't Mind the Men Behind the Curtain There is something behind the throne greater than the king himself”
-Sir William Pitt, House of Lords, 1770-“The World is governed by very different personages from what is imagined by those who are not behind the scenes”
-Benjamin Disraeli, English Statesman, 1844-
“The real truth of the matter is that a financial element in the large centers has owned the government since the days of Andrew Jackson”
-Franklin D. Roosevelt, US President, 1933-
1775. The American revolutionary war began as the American colonies sought to the detach from England and its oppressive monarchy. Though many reasons are sided for the revolution, one in particular sticks out as the prime cause that King George III of England outlawed the interest-free independent currency the colonies were producing and using for themselves. In turn forcing them to borrow money from the Central Bank of England, at interest, he immediately put the colonies in the debt. And as Benjamin Franklin later wrote:
“The refusal of King George to allow the colonies to operate an honest money system, which freed the ordinary man from clutches of the money manipulators was probably the prime cause of the revolution”
-Benjamin Franklin, Founding Father
In 1783 America won its independence from England. However, its battle against the Central Bank concept and the corrupt, greed filled men associated with it had just begun.
So what is a central bank? A central bank is an institution that produces the currency of an entire nation. Based on historical precedent, two specific powers are inherent in central banking practice: the control of interest rates and the control of the money supply, or inflation. The central bank does not simply supply a government's economy with money, it loans it to them at interest. Then through the use of increasing and decreasing of supply of money the central bank regulates the value of the currency being issued. It is critical to understand that the entire structure of this system can only produce one thing in the long run: DEBT.
It doesn't take a lot of ingenuity to figure their scam now. For, every single dollar produced by the central bank is loaned at interest. That means every single dollar produced is actually the dollar plus a certain percent of debt based on that dollar. And since the central bank has the monopoly of the production of the currency for the entire country and they loan each dollar out with an immediate debt attached to it, where does the money that pay for the debt come from? It can only come from the central bank again. Which means the central bank has to perpetually increase its money supply to temporarily cover the outstanding debt created which in turn, since that new money is loaned out at interest as well creates even more debt? The end result of this system without fail is slavery for it is impossible for the government, and thus the public, to ever come out of the self-generating debt. The founding fathers of this country were well aware of this.
“I believe that banking institution are more dangerous than standing armies… If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of currency… the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of their property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered”
-Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826)
“If you want to remain slaves of the bankers and pay for the costs of your own slavery, let them continue to create money and control the nation’s credit”
-Sir Josiah Stamp (1880-1941)
By the early 20th century the US have already implemented and removed a few central banking systems, which were swindled into place by the ruthless banking interests. At this time, the dominate families in the banking and business world were: J.D. Rockefeller, J.P. Morgan, Paul Warburg, Baron Rothschild. And in they early 1900's they sought to push once again legislation to create another central bank. However, they knew the Government and public were very wary of such an institution. So they needed to create an incident to affect the public opinion. So J.P.Morgan, publicly considered a financial luminary at the time, exploited his mass influence by publishing rumours about a prominent bank in New York wasn't solvent or bankrupt. Morgan new this would cause mass hysteria which would affect other banks as well. And it did. The public in fear of losing their deposits immediately began mass withdrawals. Consequently, the banks were forced to call in their loans causing their recipients to sell their property and thus the spiral of bankruptcies, repossessions and turmoil emerged. Putting the pieces together a few years later, Fredrik Allen of Life Magazine wrote:
“The Morgan interests took advantage… to participate the panic [of 1907] guiding it shrewdly as it progressed” –Frederik Allen, Life Magazine
Unaware of the fraud, the panic of 1907 led to the Congressional investigation headed by Senator Nelson Aldrich, who had intimate ties to the banking cartels and later became part of the Rockefeller family through marriage. The commission led by Aldrich recommended a central bank should be implemented so a panic like 1907 could never happen again. This was the spark that international bankers needed to initiate their plan.
In 1910 a secret meeting was held at the J.P.Morgan's estate on Jekyll Island off the coast of Georgia. It was there that the central banking bill called the Federal Reserve Act was written. This legislation was written by bankers, not law makers. This meeting was so secretive, so concealed from Government and public knowledge that a 10 or so figures who intended disguised their names when on route to the island. After this bill was constructed, it was then handed over to their political front man, Senator Nelson Aldrich, to push through Congress. And in 1913, with heavy political sponsorship by the bankers, Woodrow Wilson became president, having already agreed to sign the Federal Reserve Act in exchange for campaign support. And two days before Christmas, when most of Congress was at home with their families, the Federal Reserve Act was voted in and Wilson in turn made it law. Woodrow Wilson wrote:
“[Our] Great Industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is privately concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men.. who necessarily, by very reason of their own limitations, chill and check and destroy genuine economic freedom.”
“We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the civilized world –no government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and the duress of small groups of dominant men.”
Congressman Louis McFadden also expressed the truth after the passage of the bill:
“A world banking system was being set up here… a superstate controlled by international bankers.. acting together to enslave the world for their own pleasure. The FED has usurped the government.”
Now, the public was told that the Federal Reserve System was economic stabilizer and inflation and economic crises were thing of the past. Well, as history has shown, nothing was further from the truth. The fact is, the international bankers now had a streamline machine to expand their personal ambitions.
For example, from 1914 to 1919 the Fed increased the money supply by nearly 100% resulting in extensive loans to small banks and the public. Then, in 1920 the Fed called in mass percentages of the outstanding money supply. Thus resulting in the supporting banks having to call in huge numbers of loans and just like 1907, bank runs, bankruptcy and collapse occurred. Over 5.400 competitive banks outside of the Federal Reserve System collapsed further consolidating the monopoly of the small group of international bankers. Privy to this crime, Congressman Lindbergh stepped up and said in 1921:
“Under the Federal Reserve Act, panics are scientifically created. The present panic is the first scientifically created one, worked out as we figure a mathematical equation.” –Charles Lindbergh
However, the panic of 1920 was just a warm-up. From 1921 to 1929 the Fed again increased the money supply resulting once again in extensive loans to the public and banks. There was also a fairly new type of loan called the margin loan in the stock market. Very simply, the margin loan allowed an investor to put down only 10% of the stock's price with the other 90% being loaned from the broker. In other words, a person could own a $1000 worth of stock, with only a $100 down. This method was very popular in the roaring 1920's as everyone seemed to be making money in the market. However, there was a catch to this loan. It could be called in at any time and had to be paid within 24 hours. This is termed "a margin call", and a typical result of a margin call was the selling of the stock purchased with the loan.
So, a few months before October in 1929, J.D.Rockefeller, Bernard Baruch and other insiders quietly exited the market. And on October 24th, 1929 the New York financiers who furnished the margin loans started calling them in, in mass. This sparked an instantaneous massive sell off in the market for everyone who had to cover the margin loans. It then triggered a mass bank runs for the same reason, in turn collapsing over 16.000 banks enabling the conspiring international bankers to not only buy up rival banks at the discount but to also buy up whole corporations at pennies on the dollar. It was the greatest robbery in American history.
But that didn't stop there. Rather then expanding the money supply which were recovered from this economic collapse the Fed actually contracted it, fuelling one of the largest depressions in history. Once again outraged, Congressman Louis McFadden, a long time opponent of the banking cartels began bringing impeachment proceedings against the Federal Reserve Board. Saying of the crash and depression:
“It was a carefully contrived occurrence, international bankers sought to bring about a condition of despair, so that they might emerge the rulers of us all.” -Louis McFadden
Not surprisingly, and after two previous assassination attempts, McFadden was poisoned at a banquet before he could push for the impeachment.
Now, having reduced the society of the squaller the Federal Reserve bankers decided that the gold standard should be removed. In order to do this, they needed to acquire the remaining gold in the system. So, under the pretense of "helping to end the depression", came the 1933 gold seizure. Under the threat of imprisonment for 10 years everyone in America was required to turn in all gold bullion to the Treasury, essentially robbing the public of what little wealth they had left. And at the end of 1933 the gold standard was abolished. If you look at a dollar bill from before 1933 it says it is redeemable in gold. You look at the dollar bill today, it says it is legal tender which means it is backed by absolutely nothing. It is worthless paper. The only thing that gives our money value is how much of it is in circulation. Therefore, the power to regulate the money supply is also the power to regulate its value which is also the power to bring entire economies and societies to its knees.
“Give me control of a nation’s money supply, and I care not who makes its laws”
-Mayer Amschel Rothschild, Founder of Rothschild Banking Dynasty
It's important to clearly understand, the Federal Reserve is a private corporation. It is about as "federal" as Federal Express. It makes its own policies and is under virtually no regulation by the US Government. It is a private bank that loans all the currency at interest to the Government, completely consistent with the fraudulent central banking model that the country sought to escape from when it declared independence in the American revolutionary war. Now, going back to 1913 the Federal Reserve Act was not the only unconstitutional bill pushed through Congress. They also pushed the Federal Income Tax. It's worthwhile to point out that the American public's ignorance towards the Federal Income Tax is a testament to how dumbed down and oblivious the American population really is.
First of all the Federal Income Tax is completely unconstitutional as it is a direct unapportioned tax. All direct taxes have to be apportioned to be legal, based on the Constitution. Secondly, the required number of states in order to ratify the amendment to allow the Income Tax was never met. And this has even been sided in modern court cases.
“If you… examined [the 16th amendment] carefully, you would find that a sufficient number of states never ratified that amendment.”
-U.S. District Court Judge, James C. Fox, 2003”
Third, at the present day roughly 25% of the average worker's income is taken from them via this tax. That means you work 4 months out of the year to refill this tax obligation. And guess where that money goes? It goes to pay the interest on the currency being produced by the fraudulent Federal Reserve Bank, a system that does not have to exist at all. The money you make working 4 months out of the year goes almost literally into the pockets of the international bankers who own the private Federal Reserve Bank. And forth, even with the fraudulent Government claim as to the legality of the Income Tax there is literally no statute, no law in existence that requires you to pay this tax. Period.
“I really expected that, of course there is a law that you can point to in the law book, a code that requires you to file a tax return. Of course there is! I was at that point where I couldn't find a statute that clearly made me personally liable, at least not me and the most people I know and I had no choice in my mind except to resign.” –Joe Turner, Former IRS Agent
“Based on the resource that I did throughout the year 2000 and that I'm still doing I have not found that law. I've asked the Congress, we've asked a lot of people, in the IRS, IRS Commissioner's helpers, they can't answer because if they answer the American people are gonna know that this whole thing is a fraud.” –Sherry Jackson, Former IRS Agent
“I haven't filed a thorough income tax return since I left.”
“I have not filed a tax return since 1999.”
The income tax is nothing less than the enslavement of the entire country. Now, the control of the economy and the perpetual robbery of wealth is only one side of the Rubik's cube that bankers hold in their hands. The next tool for profit and control is war. Since the inception of Federal Reserve in 1913 a number of large and small wars have commenced, With the three most pronounced - the World War I, World War II and Vietnam.
World War I
In 1914 European war broke out centered around England and Germany. The American public wanted nothing to do with the war. In turn President Woodrow Wilson publicly declared neutrality. However, under the surface the US administration was looking for any excuse it could find to enter. In another observation by the Secretary of State, William Jennings:
“The large banking interests were deeply interested in the world war because of the wide opportunities for large profits.” –William Jennings Bryan
It's important to understand that the most lucrative thing that can happen for the international bankers is war. For, it forces the country to borrow even more money from the Federal Reserve Bank at interest. Woodrow Wilson's top adviser and mentor was Colonel Edward House, the man with the intimate connections with the international bankers who wanted in the war. In the documented conversation between Colonel House, Wilson's adviser and Sir Edward Grey, the Foreign Secretary of England regarding how to get America into the war, Grey inquired:
“What will American do if germans sink an ocean liner with American passengers on board?”
“I believe that a flame of indignation would sweep the United States and that by itself would be sufficient to carry us into war.”
So, on May 7th 1915 on essentially the suggestion of Sir Edward Grey, the ship called the Lusitania was deliberately sent into German controlled waters where German military vessels were known to be. And as expected, German U-boats torpedoed the ship, exploding stored ammunition, killing 1.200 people.
To further understand the deliberate nature of this set up: the German embassy actually put advertisements in the New York Times telling people that if they board the Lusitania they did so at their own risk as such a ship sailing from America to England through the war zone would be liable to destruction. In turn, and as anticipated, the sinking of the Lusitania caused a wave of anger among the American population. And America entered the war a short time after. The First World War cost 323.000 American deaths. J.D.Rockefeller made 200 million dollars off of it. That's about 1.9 trillion by today's standards. Not to mention the war cost about 30 billion dollars for America. Most of which was borrowed from the Federal Reserve Bank at interest furthering the profits of the international bankers.
World War II
On December 7th, 1941 Japan attacked the American fleet at Pearl Harbor triggering our entry into that war. President Franklin D. Roosevelt declared the attack was "a day that will live in infamy". A day of infamy indeed, but not because of the alleged surprise attack on Pearl Harbor. After 60 years of surfacing information it is clear that not only was the attack on Pearl Harbor known weeks in advance, it was outright wanted and provoked. Roosevelt, whose family had been New York bankers since the 18th century, whose uncle Frederick was on the original Federal Reserve Board was very sympathetic to the interest of the international bankers, and the interest was to enter the war because as we've seen - nothing is more profitable for the international bankers than war. In a journal entry by Roosevelt's Secretary of War Henry Stimson dated November 25, 1941 he documented a conversation he had with Roosevelt.
“The question was how should we maneuver them into firing the first shot… It was desirable to make sure the Japanese be the ones to do this so that there should remain no doubt as to who were the aggressors.” –Henry Stimson, Secretary of War
In the months leading up to the attack on Pearl Harbor, Roosevelt had done almost everything in his power to anger the Japanese showing the posture of aggression: he halted all of Japan's imports with American petroleum, he froze all of Japanese assets in the United States, He made public loans to Nationalist China and supplied military aid to the British, both enemies of Japan in the war, which by the way is completely in violation of international war rules. And on December 4th, three days before the attack, Australian intelligence told Roosevelt about a Japanese task force moving towards Pearl Harbor. Roosevelt ignored it. So as hoped and allowed, on December 7th, 1941 Japan attacked Pearl Harbor killing 2.400 soldiers. Before Pearl Harbor 83% of the American public wanted nothing to do with the war. After Pearl Harbor - one million men volunteered for the war.
It is important to know, Nazi Germany's war effort was largely supported by two organizations: one of which was called I.G.Farben. I.G.Farben produced 84% of Germany's explosives and even the Zyklon B used in concentration camps to kill millions. One of the unspoken partners of I.G.Farben was J.D.Rockefeller's Standard Oil Company in America. In fact, the German Air Force could not operate without a special additive patented by Rockefeller's Standard Oil. The drastic bombing of London by Nazi Germany, for example, was made possible by a $20 million sale of fuel to I.G.Farben by the Rockefeller's Standard Oil Company. This is just one small point of the topic how American business funded both sides of World War II.
One other treasonous organization worth mentioning is the Union Banking Corporation of New York City. Not only did they financed numerous aspects of Hitler's rise to power along with actual materials during the war, it was also a Nazi money-laundering bank which was eventually exposed for having millions of dollars of Nazi money in its vaults.
The Union Banking Corporation of New York was eventually seized for violations of the Trading with the enemy Act. Guess who the director and vice president of the Union Bank was? Prescott Bush, our current president's grandfather and of course our former president's father. Keep that in mind when considering the moral and political dispositions of the Bush family.
The United States official declaration of war with Vietnam in 1964 came after an alleged incident involving two US destroyers being attacked by the North Vietnamese PT boats in the Gulf of Tonkin. This was known as the Gulf of Tonkin Incident. This single situation was the catalystic pretext for massive troop deployment and full-fleshed warfare. One problem, however. The attack on the US destroyers by Vietnamese PT boats never happened. It was a completely staged event to have an excuse to enter the war. Former Secretary of Defence Robert McNamara stated years later that the Gulf of Tonkin Incident was a mistake, while many other insiders and officers have come forward relaying that it was a contrived farce and complete lie.
Once in the war, it was business as usual. In October 1966 President Lyndon Johnson lifted trade restrictions on the Soviet block knowing full well that the Soviets were providing upwards of 80% of North Vietnam war supplies. Consequently, the Rockefeller interests financed factories in Soviet Union which the Soviets used to manufacture military equipment and send it to North Vietnam.
However, the funding of both sides in this conflict was only one side of the coin. In 1985 Vietnam's Rules of Engagement were declassified. This detailed what American troops were and were not allowed to do in the war. It included absurdities like:
* North Vietnamese anti-aircraft missile systems could not be bombed until they were known to be operational
* No enemy could be pursued once they crossed the border of Laos or Cambodia. And most revealing of all..
* The most critical strategic targets were not allowed to be attacked unless initiated via high military officials.
Apart from these imposed ludicrous limitations North Vietnam was informed of these restrictions and therefore could based entire strategies around the limitations of the American forces. This is why the war went on so long. And the bottom line is this: the Vietnam War was never meant to be won. Just sustained. This war for profit resulted in 58.000 American deaths and 3 million dead Vietnamese. So, where are we now?
September 11th was the jump start for, what is now, accelerating agenda by the ruthless elite. It was a staged war pretext, no different than the sinking of the Lusitania, the provoking of Pearl Harbor and the Gulf of Tonkin lie. In fact, if 9/11 wasn't a planned war pretext, it would be an exception to the rule. It has been used to launch two unprovoked illegal wars, one against Iraq and one against Afghanistan. However, 9/11 was a pretext for another war as well. The war against you. The Patriot Act, Homeland Security, the Military Tribunals Act and other legislations are all completely and entirely designed to destroy your civil liberties and limit your ability to fight back against what is coming.
Currently in the United States, unannounced and most brain-washed Americans, your home can be searched, without a warrant, without you being home, you can in turn be arrested with no charges revealed to you, detained indefinitely with no access to a lawyer and legally tortured, all under the suspicion that you might be a terrorist.
If you need a painted picture of what is happening in this country, let's recognize how history repeats itself. In February 1933, Hitler staged a false flag attack burning down his own German Parliament building, the Reichstag and blamed it on communist terrorists. Within the next few weeks he passed the Enabling Act which completely eradicated the German Constitution, destroying people's liberties. He then led a series of pre-emptive wars all justified in German people as necessary to maintaining "homeland security".
“An evil exists that threatens every man, woman and child of this great nation, we must take steps to ensure our domestic security and protect our homeland.”
-Adolf Hitler, when announcing the Gestapo to the people.
“On the matter of communism and its front organizations should not obscure the issue!”
“Our enemy is a radical network of terrorists and every government that supports them.”
- George W. Bush
It's time to wake up. The people in power go out of their way to make sure that you are perpetually misled and manipulated. The majority's perception of reality, especially in the political arena, is not their own. It's shrewdly imposed upon them without them even knowing it. For example, the public at large actually believes the invasion of Iraq is going badly as sectarian violence doesn't seem to stop. What the public fails to see is that the destabilization of Iraq is exactly what the people behind the government want. This war is to be sustained so the region can be divided up, domination of the oil maintained, continual profits reaped for the defence contractors and most importantly, permanent military bases established to be used as a launching pad against other oil-bearing nonconforming countries such as Iran and Syria. For further implication that the civil war and estabilization is purely intentional, in 2005 two elite British SAS officers were arrested by Iraqi police after being caught driving around in their car, shooting at civilians while dressed up as Arabs. After being arrested and taken to a jail in Basra, the British Army immediately requested the release of these men. When the Basra Government refused, British tanks came in and physically broke out the men from the Basra prison.
“If you wish to destroy an area, how do you do it? Well there are two ways: you can go in there and bomb it and so forth, but that is not very efficient. What you do is you try to get the people in that area to kill each other and to destroy their own territory, their own farms, and that's what's been done to that area. So, the way in which you destroy the bond is get him to destroy himself by dividing his ranks against one another.”
“And then you feed both sides, you have agents feeding both sides - inflaming both sides, and they kill each other off. And it's time that some of us woke up to this reality, to understand that will people try to maintain empires and create empires. They do it by manipulating the people they are trying to conquer.”
You might wanna ask yourself why the entire culture is utterly saturated with mass media entertainment from all sides while the educational system in America continues its stupefying downwards slide since the US Government decided to take over and subsidize the public school system.
“What your government pays for, it gets. When we understand that, then we look at government financed institutions of education and see the kind of students and the kind of education that's been turned out by these government financed schools, the logic will tell you that if what has been turned out in those schools was not in accord with what the state and the federal government wanted then it would change it.”
“The bottom line is that the government is getting what they have ordered. They do not want your children to be educated. They do not want you to think too much. That is why our country and our world has become so proliferated with entertainments, mass media, television shows, amusement parks, drugs, alcohol and every kind of entertainment that keep the human mind entertained. So that you don't get in the way of important people by doing too much thinking. You had better wake up and understand that there are people who are guiding your life and you don't even know it.”
Network, 1976 :
“We're in a lot of trouble! Because you people, and 62 million other Americans are listening to me right now. Because less than 3% of you people read books. Because less than 15% of you read newspapers. Because the only truth you know is what you get over this tube. Right now, there is a whole and entire generation that never knew anything that didn't come out of this tube! This tube is the Gospel. The ultimate revelation. This tube can make or break presidents, popes, prime ministers. This tube is the most awesome goddamn force in the whole godless world and woe is us if it ever falls into the hands of the wrong people!”
“And when the largest company in the world controls the most awesome, goddamn propaganda force in the whole godless world who knows what shit will be peddled for truth on this network! So you listen to me. Listen to me! Television is not the truth. Television's a goddamned amusement park! Television is a circus, a carnival, a travelling troupe of acrobats, storytellers, dancers, singers, jugglers, sideshow freaks, lion tamers and football players. We're in the boredom-killing business.”
“But you people sit there, day after day, night after night, all ages, colours, creeds. We're all you know. You're beginning to believe the illusions we're spinning here. You're beginning to think that the tube is reality and that your own lives are unreal. You do whatever the tube tells you! You dress like the tube, you eat like the tube, you raise your children like the tube, you even think like the tube. This is mass madness, you maniacs! In God's name, you people are the real thing! We are the illusion!”
For the last thing the men behind the curtain want is a conscience, informed public capable of critical thinking. Which is why a continually fraudulent zeitgeist is output via religion, the mass media and the educational system. They seek to keep you in distracted, naive bubble. And they are doing a damn good job of it.
In 2005 an arrangement between Canada, Mexico and the United States was made. This arrangement, unannounced to the public, unregulated by Congress, merges the United States, Mexico and Canada into one entity, erasing all borders. It's called the North American Union. You might wanna ask yourself why you never heard of this. In fact, there is only one mainstream reporter who's actually heard of and has had the courage to cover this issue.
“The Bush Administration's open border policy and its decision to ignore the enforcement of this country's immigration laws is part of a broader agenda. President Bush signed a formal agreement that will end the United States as we know it. And he took this step without approval from either the US Congress or the people of the United States.” –CNN
“It's a deal that few have even heard of.”
“It's been done again by very few people at the very top, on behalf of the investment class. But the working class of people, political officials who cross our country from communities, from cities and so forth, they don't know anything about this.” –CNN
This isn't some trade agreement. It is a total removal of sovereignty from these countries which will also result in a completely new currency called the Amero.
“...apart from that I think one thing, people who are dollar based need to focus on is the Amero. That's the one thing that nobody is talking about, but I think it's gonna have a big impact on everybody's life in Canada, the US and Mexico. And the Amero is the proposal of currency for the North American community which is being developed right now between Canada, the US and Mexico to make a borderless community much like the EU and the dollar, Canadian Dollar, US Dollar, and the Mexican Peso replaced by the Amero. –Steve Previs
By default of this agreement, the American Constitution will eventually be obsolete. You would think that a situation like this would be on the cover of every major newspaper. That is until you realize the people who are behind this movement are the same people who are behind the mainstream media and you are not told what you're not supposed to know. The North American Union is the same concept as the European Union, the African Union and the soon-to-be Asian Union. And the same people are behind all of them. And when the time is right the North American, the European Union the African Union and the Asian Union will be merged together forming the final stages of the plan these men have been working on for over 60 years – a One World Government.
“We shall have world government whether or not we like it. The only question is whether world government will be achieved by conquest or consent.”
-James Warburg, Council on Foreign Relations / Architect of The Federal Reserve System.
“We are grateful to the Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine, and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost 40 years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years.”
“But, the world is more sophisticated and prepared to march toward a world government, the supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries.”
-David Rockefeller, Council of Foreign Relations
One bank, one army, one centre of power. And if we have learned anything from history it is that power corrupts. And absolute power corrupts absolutely.
*This is Aaron Russo, a film maker and a formal politician. To his left is Nicholas Rockefeller of the infamous Rockefeller banking and business dynasty. After maintaining the close friendship with Nicholas Rockefeller Aaron eventually ended the relationship appalled by what he had learned about the Rockefellers and their ambitions.
Aaron conversation with Nicholas :
“I got a call one day from the Terry woman I knew and she said, "Would you like to meet one of the Rockefellers?" I said, "Sure, I'd love to!" And we became friends. And he began to devote a lot of things to me.”
So he said to me one night, "There's gonna be an event, Aaron. And out of that event you're gonna see we are going to go into Afghanistan so we can run the pipelines from the Caspian Sea, we are going to go into Iraq to take the oil and establish a base in the Middle-East, and then we are going to go into Venezuela and try to get rid off that Chavez." And the first two they've accomplished, Chavez they didn't accomplish. And so you're gonna see guys going into caves, looking for people they never gonna find. You know, he's laughing about the fact that you have this war on terror and there's no real enemy. He's talking about how by having this war on terror you can never win it 'cause it's an eternal war, so you can always keep taking people's liberties away.
I said, "How you're gonna convinced people that this war is real?"
He said, "By the media. The media can convince everybody it's real. You know, it's just that you keep talking about things, you keep saying it over and over and over again and eventually people believe this." You know they've created Federal Reserve in 1913 through lies, they've created 9/11 which is another lie, through 9/11 you're then fighting the war on terror and afterwards you're going to Iraq which was another lie. and then they gonna do Iran. And it's all one thing leading to another, leading to another, leading to another.
And I would say, "what are you doing this for? What's the point of this thing? You have all the money in the world you'd ever want, you have all the power." I said, "You know, you're hurting people, it's not a good thing."
And he would say, "What do you care about the people for? Take care of yourself, and take care of your family."
And then I said to him, "What are the ultimate goals here?"
He said, "The ultimate goal is to get everybody in this world chipped with an RFID chip." And to have all the money to be on those chips, and everything on those chips. And if anybody wants to protest what we do or violate what we want, we just turn off their chip."
That's right. Microchipped. In 2005 Congress under the pretense of immigration control and the so-called "War on Terrorism" passed the Real ID Act, under which, it is projected, by May 2008 you will be required to carry around a federal identification card which includes on it a scannable bar code with your personal information. However, this bar code is only an intermediary step before the card is equipped with that very chip, RFID tracking module which will use radio frequencies to track your every move on the planet. If this sounds foreign to you, please know that the RFID tracking chip is already in all new American passports. And the final step is the implanted chip which many people had already been manipulated into excepting under different pretenses.
“We have a Florida family who are really pioneers in the brave new world. They have volunteered to be the first ever to have microchipped identification devices implanted into their bodies.”
“After 9/11 I was really concerned about the security of my family.”
“I wouldn't mind having something planted permanently in my arm that would identify me.”
In the end everybody will be locked into a monetary control grip where every single action you perform is documented. And if you get out of line, they can just turn off your chip for at that point of time every single aspect of society will revolve around interactions with the chips. This is the picture that is painted for the future if you open your eyes to see it. A centralized one world economy where everyone's moves and everyone's transactions are tracked and monitored, all rights removed.
The most incredible aspect of all: these totalitarian elements will not be forced upon the people, the people will demand them. For, the social manipulation of society through the generation of fear and division has completely detached humans from their sense of power and reality. The process which has been going on for centuries, if not millennia, religion, patriotism, race, wealth, class and every other form of arbitrary separatist identification thus conceived has served to create a controlled population utterly malleable in the hands of the few. Divide and conquer is the motto. And as long as people continue to see themselves as separate from everything else they lend themselves to be completely enslaved.
The men behind the curtain know this and they also know that if people ever realized the truth of their relationship to nature and the truth of their personal power, the entire manufactured zeitgeist they prey upon would collapse like a house of cards.
“The whole system that we live in drills into us that we're powerless, that we're weak, that our society is evil, that it's fraudulent et cetera and so forth it’s all a big fat lie. We are powerful, beautiful, extraordinary. There is no reason why you cannot understand who we truly are, where are we going. There is no reason why the average individual cannot be fully empowered. We are incredibly powerful beings.”
“I think I've spent 30 years of my life, the first 30, trying to become something. I wanted to become good at things, I wanted to become good at tennis, I wanted to become good at school and grades... and everything I kind of viewed in that perspective: I'm not OK the way I am, but if I got good at things...
...and I realized that I had the game wrong. The game was to find out what I already was.”
“Now, in our culture we've been trained for individual differences to stand out. So, you look at each person and immediately it is brighter, dumber, older, younger, richer, poorer... and we make all these dimensional distinctions, we put them in categories and treat them that way. And we get so that we only see others as separate from ourselves in the ways in which they're separate. And one of the dramatic characteristics of experience is being with another person and suddenly seeing the ways in which they're like you, and not different from you, and experiencing the fact that which is essence in you, which is essence in me is the one, the understanding there is no other. It is all one.”
“And I wasn't born Richard Albert, I was just born as a human being and then I learned this whole business of who I am, and whether I'm good or bad or achieving or not, all that's learned along the way.”
“The old appeals to racial, sexual and religious chauvinism, to rabid nationalist fervour are beginning not to work. A new consciousness is developing which sees the Earth as a single organism and recognizes that an organism at war with itself is doomed.” – Carl Sagan, Physicist
Bill Hicks used to finish his shows with this:
Life's like a ride in an amusement park. We go on it and think it's real 'cause that's how powerful our minds are. And the ride goes up and down and round and round. It has thrills and chills and it's very brightly colored and it's very loud and it's fun, for a while. Some have been on the ride for a long time and they begin to question, is this real, or is this just a ride? And other people have remembered, and they come back to us, they say, "Hey, don't worry, don't be afraid, ever, because, this is just a ride..." And we kill those people. "Shut him up. I've got a lot invested in this ride. Shut him up! Look at my furrows of worry. Look at my big bank account and my family. This has to be real." It's just a ride. But we always kill those good guys who try and tell us that, you ever notice that? We let the demons run amok. But it doesn't matter because, it's just a ride. And we can change it anytime we want. It's only a choice. No effort, no work, no job, no savings and money. Just a choice, right now, between fear and love.

|● Risque obligataire : vos précautions indispensables Cécile Chevré|

Risque obligataire : vos précautions indispensables
Les 750 milliards destinés à sauver la zone euro semblent avoir un effet positif sur les marchés. A l'heure où j'écris ces lignes, le CAC 40 est en pleine flambée et s'affiche en hausse de plus de 8,50%. Une preuve de plus du comportement totalement irrationnel des marchés. Prenez garde, cher lecteur, les requins sont dans le grand bain.
Stupeurs, tremblements... et manipulation ?Si vous n'avez pas été pris de stupeurs et de tremblements après les petites "erreurs" de la semaine dernière – pour un rappel un "incident technique" qui a suspendu les cotations sur Euronext pendant plusieurs heures jeudi dernier puis une erreur de frappe d'un trader chez Citigroup qui aurait confondu millions (million) et milliards (billion) – la journée d'aujourd'hui devrait finir de vous convaincre que les marchés ont complètement perdu la tête.
Comme me l'apprend l'un de mes collègues, ce matin la cotation de certains ETF de la Société Générale est suspendue, mettant ainsi au tapis des milliers d'investisseurs qui avaient pris des trackers indiciels Lyxor. Nous vous tenons au courant de la suite des événements sur notre site moneyweek.fr.
Une seule constatation... les marchés sont devenus très risqués. Trop même...
Attention terrain miné !La reprise des marchés ce matin était prévisible mais elle est aussi extrêmement fragile. N'oublions pas que la crise que nous traversons n'est pas un petit épisode correctif dans une belle et saine reprise. C'est le signe de ce que nous que nous annonçons depuis plusieurs mois : reprise de la crise.
La crise de ces derniers jours est bien plus dangereuse que celle de 2008. Cette fois ce ne sont pas les banques et les entreprises qui sont impliquées, ce sont les Etats. Or seule l'aide des gouvernements avaient permis à l'économie de ne pas sombrer à pic en 2008. Aujourd'hui, si le sauveteur prend lui aussi l'eau, plus personne ne pourra s'opposer au naufrage.
Les Etats ont grillé toutes leurs cartouches.
Vous avez d'ailleurs été nombreux à nous écrire ces derniers jours pour nous demander des conseils, vous inquiéter ou vous insurger...
Crise obligataire : que faire ?J'ai donc commencé la semaine par une réunion de crise avec Simone Wapler. Que faut-il faire ? Dans le dernier MoneyWeek, Simone revient sur les stratégies anti-crise que nous vous conseillons au fil des numéros :
2. Les obligations émergentes
3. les obligations d'entreprises
4. La sélection de valeurs que nous établissons, numéro après numéro et qui sont, selon nous, les mieux armées pour résister à la crise et même bénéficier des grandes tendances de demain.
[Retrouvez toute notre stratégie anti-crise concentrée et expliquée par Simone Wapler dans la Stratégie X2. %3Cfont%20color=]Pour en savoir plus...[/color]">
Vous avez été très nombreux à nous poser des questions sur l'assurance vie et son exposition au risque souverain. En effet, sans que vous le sachiez la plupart – sinon tous – les contrats d'assurance vie de nombreuses assurances vie reposent sur les obligations souveraines de pays européens, dont les fameux membres du "Club Med".
Devez-vous jeter votre assurance vie aux orties ?Pour tout vous dire, nous nous sommes longuement posé la question avec Simone. J'ai failli décrocher 10 fois mon téléphone pour conseiller à mon grand-père de vendre son assurance vie. Bon et puis, et je me suis imaginée les conséquences – désastreuses – en série : la panique, la course dans toute la maison pour retrouver le nom du conseiller financier, et peut-être le malaise vagal...
Bref, pas de panique ! Rien de mieux pour prendre une décision que d'avoir le maximum d'informations.
Pour cela, nous vous conseillons de contacter votre intermédiaire ou votre revendeur. Et posez-lui les trois questions suivantes :
1. Que recouvre, ligne par ligne, votre assurance vie ?2. Quelles sont les conditions de sortie ?
3. Comment le contrat définit-il les "conditions anormales de marché". En effet, sachez que, dans ce cas, les assureurs ont prévu des limitations de sorties. Il est donc indispensable que vous vous fassiez préciser ce que prévoit votre contrat.
Pour aller plus loin :● N'oubliez pas dans le dernier MoneyWeek, Ingrid Labuzan a sélectionné 2 valeurs de la consommation au Chili et au Brésil pour mettre en portefeuille le potentiel de croissance des émergents, ainsi que deux ETF sur ces pays. A découvrir dans votre MoneyWeek.
● Quant à Alexandra Voinchet, elle revient pour vous sur les obligations d'entreprises, p. 17 du dernier MoneyWeek. Elle vous conseille en particulier 2 fonds qui vous permettent de gagner sur les obligations d'entreprises à haut rendement.

Le yen est surestimé...
Par Dr. Eberhardt Unger
L'agence de notation Standard & Poor's estime qu'à la fin de l'année fiscale, au 31 mars 2010, la dette nationale du Japon avait atteint 200% du PIB, soit le taux le plus élevé de tous les pays évalués par cette agence.
Aucun plan de consolidation de la dette japonaise n'est en vue et ainsi la dette publique pourrait même dépasser les 200% du PIB.
Si la notation reste stable à AA, les perspectives à long terme des obligations ont été abaissées à "négatives". L'agence de notation Fitch a sorti le "carton jaune" en menaçant le Japon d'une dégradation de sa note, si rien n'est entrepris pour lutter contre l'expansion de la dette publique.
Une fois de plus les agences se montrent hésitantes dans leurs décisions, les faisant, de nouveau, soupçonner de vouloir, au final, protéger les Etats-Unis d'un déclassement.
Le plus grand problème actuel du Japon est la perte de sa compétitivité internationale. Ce n'est plus un producteur à bas coûts, ayant été supplanté depuis longtemps, dans ce domaine, par la Chine, l'Indonésie, l'Inde et d'autres encore. A une époque où ses exportations ont désespérément besoin d'être relancées, le Japon, handicapé, qui plus est, par un yen fort, ne peut pas lutter contre ses concurrents qui ont des coûts de fabrication bien plus bas.
Même la Banque du Japon, avec sa politique de taux zéro (ZIRP), n'a rien pu faire pour renverser la situation. La banque centrale affiche son optimisme dans ses publications, mais elle doit continuer sa politique de taux zéro, sans quoi le yen ne pourra que se renchérir.Pour tout dire, la deuxième économie du monde est en stagnation depuis une vingtaine d'années et tout porte à croire que cela va continuer. Le problème de la dette publique semble devoir s'amplifier : aucun revirement n'est en vue.Conclusion : le yen est surévalué. Le Japon n'est pas une alternative pour des investisseurs mondiaux. Concernant la dette publique, la situation japonaise est l'archétype de ce qui est en train d'arriver dans plusieurs économies à travers le monde.
