“I care not what puppet is placed upon the throne of England to rule the Empire on which the sun never sets. The man who controls the British money supply controls the British Empire, and I control the British money supply.”                                    Nathan Meyer Rothschild  (1777 – 1836)

 

In this new millennium 21st century Society is saddled with systems way past their sell by date.

. . . A 15th century democratic system, complete with glass ceiling

. . . An 11th century monetary system that increasingly holds the world to ransom

. . . A 2000 year old surveillance system being replaced by modern technology

Voting with what we now have will never solve the problems we now face

 In this series of 6 posts I will offer a view on why I think we might be sleepwalking into Election 2015

Part 3: Debt and a Predatory Economy

The money supply for a country is no different to the money supply for family. We have bills we pay from our earnings (Taxes) and when the expenses become too much we either cut back on our spending, or take out a loan for a fixed period from our bank to cover the additional costs.

Countries are run in the same fashion but their loans are provided from a central bank by becoming money circulated within the economy, which can be a good thing or a bad thing depending upon who is running the bank!

Over the millennia the battle has raged between the banks and politicians as to who is responsible for this critical, powerful (and lucrative) job. When government prints its own money and circulates it through public banks Society benefits from a financial infrastructure that can reduce, or even eliminate personal taxation. This is possible because the interest paid on the money government provides is recirculated back into Society to finance the public services etc., effectively alleviating the need for income tax.

When private banks are in control however, they are in the business of making profits Continue reading

 Part 2 – Democracy Surveillance and the Internet

In part 1 of this series I argued that the UK Parliament is no longer fit for purpose. Of greatest concern to me is that they have allowed, and been a party to, the sudden erosion of democracy that has occurred since the financial collapse of 2007/8, in tandem with other governments around this planet. The more I read and understand about the events following this irresponsible financial disaster, it becomes clear that rather than doing the honourable thing in bailing out the banks to safeguard the world economy, we have been manipulated into a power play for global domination by dramatically increasing poverty.

People were not consulted about this vast transfer of financial resource from the many to the few because it was meant to demonstrate that democracy, as we have known it, no longer has any teeth. In just a few short years large corporations have turned themselves into global entities that wield more power than many governments, and are not accountable to the electorate within this new ‘democracy’.

In this new order, profit not social infrastructure rules, accountable only to the bottom line and not the people who contribute to that profit. As these monoliths cruise the world seeking out the cheapest labour and resources, people have become trapped in a regime of repressed wages and social standards that are taking us back to the Victorian era.

They are also forced to pay for the social infrastructure of transport, healthcare, refuse disposal, benefits etc. essential to the smooth running of businesses that abuse them, as those same corporations evade this responsibility by relocating their offices to tax havens around the world.

All of this is supported by Governments, desperate to hang on to power, who have been seduced into taking on mind-numbing levels of debt which can never be repaid, turning themselves into ‘corporate servants’ in the process. Remember, they are now obligated to selling off our public services at discounted prices as a condition of the loans and debt they have taken on! Continue reading

 Part 1: A Parliament No Longer Fit for Purpose

As the electioneering begins, with statistical manipulation and dubious messages of economic recovery, with party faithful battling with each other over who did and said what, and manifestos that become the written evidence of future political deceit, I can’t help feeling we are sleepwalking into the next general election.

The purpose of Parliament is to ‘manage’ the needs of Society for the benefit of that Society, (supported by Magna Carta which successfully dealt with the constant abuse of the people by successive monarchs). Up until 150 years ago a relatively balanced democracy was achieved, with little excessive abuse of the type now being experienced by the population at large.

However, as the Charters 61 clauses were whittled down to just 3 by 1969 we have seen a sea change in the way Parliament operates and Society is managed or, as many would now agree, we have returned to the abuses perpetrated by monarchs all those centuries ago. Continue reading
