By 2016, the richest 1% of the world will own more than the other 99% of us combined. How did we get to this? In my humble opinion, it's not too complicated. How about greed and corruption? And let's throw in the manipulations of the global financial markets. When governments are bought and paid for by the corporate self interest groups: when bankers are allowed to commit fraud on an epic scale, with token fines to justify their criminality, it's not difficult to see who benefits and who does not.
This is not new, it's been going on for centuries, but it has reached epic proportions, Rothschild's, JP Morgan and Goldman Sachs to name a few, are some of the bigger players in this fraud. And let's not forget the Federal Reserve (nothing federal about it). These are all private institutions that have become parasites on the backs of decent working people. It doesn't matter if you're working class, middle class, or for that matter which part of the world you reside in, in general all of us are affected by the economic circumstances created by these central banks of criminals.
There are a few exceptions. One that comes to mind is Iceland, where they jailed the bankers and threw off the parasites that were feeding on their people. That must have scared the crap out of the other herds of bankers. Just think, what if the rest of the world woke up and realized who was behind their servitude, and why things are the way they are.
Who are behind the wars? In whose interest are these wars fought? Who profits from them? If one were to do some research, it would become apparent that throughout history, these poor excuses for human beings have had their greedy little hands on the buttons of chaos for their own self interest. Let's call them for what they are, Bankers!
These powers that be have no interest in the well being of the rest of humanity. We are, and always will be, in their minds a resource to be exploited, brainwashed by them, with a bought and paid for media of "Presstitutes"* who are paid excessive amounts of money to propagate lies and deceit on behalf of their masters. And when it all goes wrong, that is, when there's no more money to steal, no more fraud to commit, and their evil practices are about to be discovered by a population fed on GMO's, trash TV and disposable junk, when the ATM's no linger work because the institutions are bankrupt who will the bankers seek to blame?
George Carlin once said (and I'm paraphrasing) when will people wake up and see that the American Dream they've been spoon fed is really nothing more than a nightmare. When all of the possibilities of exposure rise close to the surface, the elite will call in their bought and paid for politicians and take you to war. Not convinced? Take a good look around you. Every piece of packaged propaganda you hear is for their self interest to keep their empire alive, to keep you dumbed down.
It doesn't have to be this way, but I fear it would take a global revolution to change things. There again, it's clear that history has shown us, it only takes about one to three percent of the masses to rise up for that to become a reality. So maybe there is hope. Perhaps the greed of the elite, their insatiable appetite for more of everything, at everyone else's expense will be their own undoing. One can always hope, and I am encouraged by some of the signs I see. Perhaps we can make Planet Chaos a distant dream. Whatever we do will serve us better than this tyranny.
*Thanks to Gerald Celente for the word presstitutes, it is such an appropriate term.
