Finding the Exits from the Grids with John Judge

On this day, August 8, 2007, America is at a tipping point. We arrived here through a series of incidents and actions, many unintended.. Our tools for creating the world we know were law and institutions, tools we thought would provide stability and order. Instead we have violence and growing fear.

Growing numbers of Americans now realize that those we trusted have used those tools to enrich themselves. The shock of understanding vies with an overarching sense of outrage. We are faced with the compelling need to change government because of the deceit and unbridled greed of those who used our trust to steal.

Greed is a long-understood human failing. Our institutions were used to deceive us. Those deceptions were created by people we trusted who stood to profit. We know their names and it is a long list including former presidents, the heads of corporations, and leaders from both major parties. This did not happen as a single conspiracy; it happened because when one person comes up with an original way to steal, it will be copied and applied to other circumstances to achieve the same purpose.

As John Judge says a conspiracy means to breath together. These people have bad breath and ambition combined with habits of larceny.

A blow dryer is a small appliance used to dry and style your hair. Dropped into the bathtub of someone you want to eliminate, it is a murder weapon.

Blow-dryers and institutions of all kinds are just tools. These 'leaders' and other individuals entrusted with American's tools are responsible for how those tools were misused. There are many tools we need to rethink. We have been too trusting.

Our monetary system was intended to provide the means for exchange, to securely hold money, and to provide a way to measure what money is worth. It has become a weapon in the war to steal the wealth of people around the world. Fractional banking is a monopoly license to print money, issued by Congress to the Federal Reserve System in 1913. This system has stolen the wealth of five generations, while reorganizing us to make stealing ever easier.

There are alternatives. Read Money, Understanding and Creating Alternatives to Legal Tender by Thomas H. Greco, Jr., Chelsea Green Publishing, ISBN 9781890132378.)

We have learned that the greed inclined who work their way into power always want more of our wealth and lives. Politicians make a living making sure that Grid Corporations, for instance all the oil companies, Halliburton, Koch Industries, and scores of others keep us passive and paying.

Other Grid Corporations did this with electricity, transportation, for all financial dealings, for insurance, and for all government services including the police and military.

In cooperation with government and aided by the media they have been re-calibrating the police and military to control us when deceit finally fails, which it is now doing. The cows, us, have to stay in the pen.
