"History records that the money changers have used every form of abuse, intrigue, deceit, and violent means possible to maintain their control over governments by controlling money and its issuance." - President James Madison
The peaceful activists successfully planted their flag of human dignity in front of the lawless corporate-government criminals and the global media. They called it the battle of Seattle because they knew a much larger war was awaiting America, and the world in the 21st century. Eleven years later, that war is finally here, and it took the world's greatest financial crisis to bring it about.
Many of the activists who gathered in Seattle in 1999 were on the right track, but they didn't know the magnitude of what the big banks on Wall Street and organizations like the World Bank were up to. They were clueless about Mankind's biggest enemy: the private Federal Reserve Bank. It is the largest criminal network in the world today. Owned by a small group of private banks, the FED has the ability to create money out of thin air and then loan it out to the U.S. government at interest, which is a deceitful way to put America into debt and force the American people to pay back the debt to the banks through taxes.
The FED's monumental fraud scheme became widely known in the last five years thanks to groundbreaking documentary films by Aaron Russo, Alex Jones, Peter Joseph, and others, and to the presidential run by Dr. Ron Paul who made the private FED his main target in 2008.
It is a mistake to view globalization as an assault by capitalists upon the world. The men in charge of the world economy are not capitalists, they are private central bankers. They are criminal monopolists, and looters, with an eye towards human domination and the conquest of nations. This fact should make liberals and progressives rethink their criticism of the global banking system. It is time to put down Marx, and pick up Jefferson, and Adams.
You can't go around blaming capitalism for the financial crisis, and all the world's ills, when capitalism doesn't even exist in America. America is a kleptocracy. The American government is worse than a banana republic. It is controlled by private banks and lawless special interests. It is a government of wolves, and snakes.
Despite all the rhetoric about free markets, America's top corporations and banks don't practice free trade or follow the principles of capitalism. They don't believe in competition, or the rule of law, which is the basic requirement for a free market society. The CEOs and private bankers believe they are above the law. Above government. Above humanity.
In 2008, when the financial crisis happened, big banks like Goldman Sachs and JPMorgan Chase sent their goons to Washington to intimidate and scare members of Congress and told them to hand over the American people's money if they wanted to maintain order in the banking system, and order in society. But once they got the people's money, which Bloomberg reported was $12 trillion, they used it to give themselves billion-dollar bonuses, and for other reasons that weren't disclosed to the press or Congress, like "toward spending a portion of their federal rescue money on acquiring other financial firms rather than for issuing new loans."
More than two years after the initial bailout, there is a new round of looting. This time it is much more serious because the Obama administration didn't fix anything, and the economic crisis has gotten worse. Here are just four points to consider:
1) The unemployment rate in America is 22%.
2) The big banks like Citigroup, Bank Of America, JPMorgan & Wells Fargo are all insolvent.
3) There is the foreclosure fraud, and the Obama administration is helping the banks instead of the victims
4) Politicians and deficit hawks are lining up to cut Social Security and Medicare, as proposed by the Deficit Commission, while defending the military-industrial complex, the criminal bailouts to criminal Wall Street banks, the two criminal wars, and the 1000 military bases around the world.
We can win the war against the global private banking system. We already have the greatest form of communication in the internet, and enough of us have deep knowledge about the criminality of the banks. What we need are a few good ideas.
Word travels fast nowadays, so any non-violent resistance campaign that is based on a good idea is likely to succeed. A week ago, financial analyst Max Keiser voiced his "Crash JP Morgan - Buy Silver" idea on the Alex Jones Show, and people around the world have put his idea into action.
Individuals across the planet are getting energized just because of one smart idea. They now know that they have power. The global campaign to dethrone JP Morgan and the high priests of the global banking system is vibrant and real, not just a dream.
The criminal private banksters are afraid of global collective action because once people come together for justice and truth, they will be history. And no violence is required. There are far more productive ways to protest the existing criminal order than burning police cars, and smashing windows.
Read Max's Crash JP Morgan Buy Silver Manifesto. "Buying Silver" he says, "is how the world is monetizing its anger at the banks who stole their wealth."
