I have long sought The Man behind the curtain.
I believe I have found them, before you get all widgety and judgmental. I must remind those of faith, they demand tolerance of "belief".
Americans are, however, under siege. A class war has raged since the beginning of humanity.
The brilliance of the current upper class campaign is convincing the vast majority it's not actually happening. Further, that demanding a fair share for the majority is class warfare and is not fair to the upper class waging the war.
Well, life is not fair.
But let me start with the basics: Capitalism in all it's glorified hypocrisy as served by those that run the show.
If you start a business, you assume risk and therefore expect to profit from its success and also suffer from it's demise.
That's the generally accepted understanding of the American Way.
In the current model adopted by the uber wealthy elite. They conspire to dupe the American public into sub-prime mortgages and bundled swaps into supposed AAA investments.
The conspirators include the too big to fail banks, The Federal Reserve (our central bank), the government and big bank cronies employed by the government (Goldman Sachs former executives for example), the fake rating agencies (Moody's, Fitch, Standard for the Poor).
We have witnessed, and are living through, a conspiracy. No theory. Evidentially, factually, provable conspiracy.
But since the government co-conspirators have chosen NOT to investigate and prosecute their guilty brethren, this becomes a moot point.
The very rudimentary point is: This is not capitalism.
So, it's not anti-rich or anti-successful.
This means you take the risk and win you get the reward. You lose, you lose your business.
When you remove risk from the equation you are not dealing with capitalism. This is an irrefutable fact, by definition, for those who love capitalism.
What these rich conspirators did was remove risk from the equation, these few brilliant would-be criminal billionaires did was: Ponzi Scheme the entire globe. Congrats, you heartless bastards!
Several points need to be clear here: Conspiracies do occur, as evidence we're living through (at least) one now.
Why attack these rich, successful people?
Because they circumvented capitalism for their personal "success". They are, or would be treasonous criminals, by the definition of capitalism (and the founding fathers).
IF they didn't also write the laws for their own benefit.
First, they took NO risk. Their brilliant, should've been illegal, scheme privatized profit and socialized risk.
Simple explanation: They kept all the profits and WE THE PEOPLE assumed all their risk. We bailed out their failed banks and businesses and they received bonuses for running their companies into the ground.
To say they were UNsuccessful would be a lie.
They were very successful at re-distributing the wealth to themselves. Unlike Bernie Madoff, their plan succeeded in duping the masses into thinking these piratical psychopaths were the best and brightest and deserve their ill-gotten gains.
Akin to giving a dog a treat for mauling a child AND having the mauled child hand the dog the treat with a stupefied smile.
The mauled child in this is WE THE PEOPLE of the United States.
Upon finishing "Secrets of the Federal Reserve" (I highly recommend) I was surprised to find this headline in the usually Wall Street defensive Wall Street Journal: The Federal Reserve's Covert Bailout of Europe.
First, The Federal Reserve Bank, is a privately owned bank. Which answered one of my central questions as to why the big banks were bailed out, but the American people were left to flounder.
The too big to fail banks they bailed out are the owners of The Federal Reserve Bank. In essence they bailed themselves out to the tune of 7.8 trillion dollars in zero percent loans to themselves in addition to the 780 billion dollar socialist bailout of their risk by the American people.
Now, December 28th, 2011 we are bailing out Europe. But not with loans The Fed would have to report, but with currency swaps.
The more complicated the better, but the point is The Fed doesn't have to report the untold billions it isn't lending to Europe, because it's "swapping" currency.
Now that the Supreme Court has awarded Corporations the rights of individuals with as little regulation as possible is there much doubt as to who is behind the curtain?
This is tantamount to disbanding the police for the people, which would create anarchy.
They have achieved financial anarchy by the design of the financial anarchists.
The fact We The People are fooled into believing WE have power is the curtain we need to peer behind.
Follow the money.
Absolute power corrupts absolutely.
**** Please note I didn't need to politicize one point. Right, Left, Democrap or Republicant matters not to those in power.
The labels are just another way to keep us divided and conquered.
