"From now on, depressions will be scientifically created."
-- Congressman Charles A. Lindbergh Sr., 1913
What follows is an essay that is largely based on information from an article which recently appeared at Zerohedge.com.
Because we subconsciously associate the continuance of our life with the variable health of the particular economic structure in which we live, we tend to become unwitting devotees to its continued existence -- even if an abundance of evidence shows that it is hopelessly corrupt and condemned to failure. We foolishly deny that this corrupt system (and the currency that supports it) is doomed because, even though it has beaten us bloody, we have never known anything else.
Because of this entrenched way of perceiving things, it is difficult to convince most people that the economic system in which they live is actually being used, in ways they cannot easily understand, to destroy their futures completely. And so, to try and explain to them that this very economy, which they naively regard as theirs, is being prepared, by persons unknown, to self-destruct, and take them down with it-- well, that is a very difficult task indeed.
Many people hit a proverbial wall on this issue because they simply cannot fathom that certain groups of men (globalists and central bankers) view money and economy in completely different terms than they do.
The average American lives within a tiny conceptual box when it comes to the mechanics and motivations of finance. They think that their monetary desires and drives are exactly the same as a globalist's. But, what they don't realize is that the very "box' they think in . . was BUILT by globalists. This is why the actions of big banks, and the decisions of our mostly corporate-establishment-run government, seem so insane in the face of common sense. We try to toss off their behavior as "idiocy," but the reality is that their goals are highly deliberate, and are so far outside what we have been taught to expect, that many of us can't begin to understand what they are doing and why.
In the past we have covered numerous instances in which global bankers have admitted to fraud on a massive scale -- fraud the consequences of which are now in the process of crushing our already fragile economy. Most of us have read about how the privately held Federal Reserve knowingly facilitated the creation of the housing bubble, as well as how it is now inflating a Treasury bubble which is soon to implode. We have all read about Goldman Sachs and its efforts to promote and sell toxic derivatives all over the world while at the same time betting against those derivatives on the open market. We have read about the manipulation of gold and silver markets by companies like JP Morgan, which have recently been exposed by whistleblowers and GATA investigations. And, most importantly, we've heard about the growing weakness of the U.S. dollar and the possibility of severe currency devaluation.
These revelations raise questions, which is natural, but they also elicit misconceptions and reckless knee-jerk reactions, especially when broaching the fact that the illegal strategies of international banksters are part of a larger agenda, namely to engineer an economic collapse.

Examined below are some of the most common narrow-minded responses to the proposition that banksters are about to attempt, or are in the process of attempting, an engineered economic collapse. After each listing, an explanation is provided as to why the response is narrow minded.

Narrow minded response #1: The economy is too complex to be controlled by just a handful of people"
This response often comes from people who are inclined to make quick presumptions about our economic system, rather than actually taking the time to educate themselves on how the system really works. From the outside looking in, the world of finance appears chaotic -- a mixture of mathematical and legal standards swirling in a maelstrom of mass psychology. Many Americans are either frightened off by this seemingly complicated field of study, or they too quickly find it "boring" and "not worth" their time. This, however, does not stop them from making knee-jerk presumptions about how the system works.
