Taking Us for Fools

By Timothy V. Gatto

I've been seeing more and more hope floating around. One enlightening video I've seen is this;  

Fuel- Change your Fuel, Change your World,  

While it may not solve every energy need, it sure does give alternatives to what we have now. Now that I've said that, why do you think we haven't heard about all of these alternative fuels? It isn't just fuels we don't hear about, it's just about anything that might be introduced that would change the status quo. Now that the mainstream media has been co-opted by the corporate plutocracy, I doubt that we'll hear anything on the MSM that interferes with corporate profits.

When I'm out and about, talking with family and friends, I am astonished at what most people don't know. It isn't because they are dull, stupid people, it's because they don't have the luxury of spending their time in the way that I do. I read and watch videos on the internet.  I'm retired and my time is my own.Most Americans are working and raising a family. They don't have the luxury of free time. The way events are unfolding, the rapid pace at which knowledge is flooding the planet; the restrictions placed on the MSN are almost criminal. If we as a nation, or even more importantly, if we as a species are going to survive the changes coming at us from every quarter, we can't use our greatest method of communication on inane content.

So-called "information" outlets like the History Channel and other outlets like it (Discovery, National Geographic, etc.) are spending more and more time on reality shows and other mindless drivel. It's not that the people who run these outlets don't believe that the average American won't watch informational programming, they know they will; they just don't want to educate the public . An educated public is a demanding public. These corporations don't want people asking too many questions.

Could you imagine if everyone knew that this country can't even print its own money, that the government must borrow every dollar printed from private bankers? That every dollar comes with debt attached? What would the majority of people do if they understood that the same money we bailed out the banks with had to be borrowed from bankers?   It seems that this country has been through this before. In fact, just about every 40 years we kick out the central bank and twenty years later we let them set up another central bank. (See The American Dream by the Provocateur Network, If you have the time, and I highly recommend you find it, watch "The Secret of Oz"

How many times will we continue to make the same mistakes? When will we finally put an end to the bankers that insist on controlling the American currency? Will we be forced into a revolution to stop the spiral of debt that they put us under, or will the corporate-controlled politicians see the handwriting on the wall and do the people's will before we revolt? It is only a matter of time.
