'If you’re alarmed by the way things are going in the world…you should be. What I mean by that is that the world’s great systems are broken… hence, an age of paralysis, despair, trauma, and backlash. Your anxiety is very real, it means something —The fundamental system that’s broken is the global economy. That’s not a surprise — America designed and invented it, and the global economy has come to reflect America’s bizarre and grotesque economic outcomes. America is now a country of a tiny number of ultra rich, who effectively own everything, and one of something very much like neo serfs — the average American will die in debt, which means he’ll never (in net terms) own, earn, or save anything. Anything. 70% of Americans cannot raise $1000 if needed.  We need to get serious, fast, about building a better future. reimagine and reinvent our broken system — now, beginning this minute!'

"No matter how rich or powerful a nation gets, if its run the way America is, the result isn't a healthy society it's a caste society of the broke, powerless, and impoverished serving the ultra rich. And more and more nations are following precisely that path, falling like dominoes.


"America was to be the bellwether for the global economy it had built. That was only natural it was the model it wanted the world to follow. But it's collapse was a microcosm of all the implosions the world was going through, too. American cities didn't have clean water. They didn't have decent food. It's people lived and died in poverty no matter how hard they worked, or how much they tried to save and invest. Its super rich decimated its polity. And in the end, the people enough of them turned to extremists to protect them. At this point, they were like little children literally. They had been traumatized into infantile regression. Their adult minds weren't working anymore. Who could blame them? Living on the edge of life and death everyday has that effect. Trauma shuts down the adult mind. And so Americans sought safety in the strong, comforting arms of extremists who told them to build concentration camps and walls and Gestapos."

You seemed to have missed one of my most important links, showing how Jews invented our monetary system. I would love to say Zionists, but this was before they came into being click here

I agree Daniel. The banks' private monopoly of money supply creation is the command and control system that builds and maintains the oligopoly ownership structure by which "capitalists" own and operate the global economy as their private corporate fiefdom. Money-issuing bankers are the gods whose invisible hands rule from on high; corporate capitalists are the kings and aristocrats who exercise visible government over this planet as their private property; everybody else is wage serfs bound in debt bondage to the money-creating, money-lending banks. As long as money issuance remains the banks' private monopoly, no other beneficial reforms are financially possible. Governments could issue their own debt-free, interest-free money, and spend it funding every kind of public purpose the nation's people need and want, and the nation's workers and businesses are able to do. China uses its government-owned banking system to create the money to fund China's "economic miracle". The only thing miraculous is that Anglo-American bankers were not able to buy off China's political leaders and bind China in the same debt bondage the Western nations are bound in.
