The solution to the economic crisis

With all the doom-laden media braying constantly about our terrible economies it is easy to forget that our financial system is only one of many that have existed over time, some of which were very efficient at avoiding every one of the problems we are being submerged with – by design – today. A lot of people are working on extremely effective alternative financial systems, but unsurprisingly the Rothschild and Murdock owned press act as though they don’t exist, never report on them, and thus help maintain the terrible system their paymasters have put into place. The truth is the current system of international finance is an expensive farce that benefits a minute minority, and concentrates worldwide power in the most unsavoury hands known to mankind to the detriment of everyone and just about everything. Anyone who does not understand that has obviously not been living on the same planet as the rest of us the last few years – or prefers staying in a comfortable delusional state rather than accept the reality of the ridiculously wasteful and dehumanising systems inflicted on us increasingly every day. However, luckily there are plenty of brave individuals out there who have a total understanding of this and are doing their utmost to promote more equitable systems, despite being hindered at every stage by the financial oligarchy and the political minions who have allowed them to achieve such obscene levels of power.

Probably one of the most succinct and brilliant explanations of a tried and tested system that reintroduces fairness into the marketplace while at the same time stimulating hugely the economy and castrating the parasitic international banks, is that of soft-spoken monetary genius Richard Cook. His “Cook Plan” is the result of three decades of careful reflection while working in the heart of the White House treasury department, where he had a unique position to grasp the intricate workings of national and international finance.

His work is of striking pertinence today. He has reinforced each aspect with the help of a multitude of other economists and monetary reformers worldwide.

I strongly recommend watching this 2 hour series of videos where Richard Cook manages to condense two centuries of economic history, clear and concise explanations of many of the terms and mechanisms of economics that are essential but far too many people ignore, and finally explain the simplest, highly ethical solutions that would stop this entire artificial economic crisis – and the untold suffering associated with it – immediately. If you only want to put up with one economy lesson in your life – let it be this one !

It is divided into 6 parts each covering a high density of information, so try to find a moment when you are clear and focused to watch it. Then spread the video to anyone you know with half a brain, and start pestering your elected “representatives” to pass legislation that would rapidly transform society into a far more equitable place, at no cost except to faceless international institutions who would lose their ill-earned sinecure.

The plan was proposed to the G-20 a few years ago backed by the signatures of many prominent economists and was ignored, unsurprisingly.

The same thing happened when it was presented to the US congress.

It’s high time for a change. That change can only come from the people.

To think there are a number of alternative systems out there that are almost as good, and we have to put up with the current can of worms run by a small number of soulless yes-men and psychopaths for their selfish interests who are devouring the planet while doing their best to line their pockets with our collective futures.

It must be understood that there are monetary and economic systems that make the kind of rampant abuse prevailant today almost impossible. Here is one of them:

A new monetary system that would prevent economic collapse

Contrarily to our useless politicians whose “solutions” for the current economic crisis are to create yet more debt and ruin countless future generations, there are highly qualified people out there who have already designed effective systems that would change the nature of the world economy, and hugely benefit the “man in the street”, his freedom and finances – something fairly inexistant right now.

One of the systems I like the most has been designed by Richard C. Cook.

A short summary video:

An interview with R. C. Cook:

An in-depth explanation of the new monetary system:

http://dandelionsalad.wordpress.com/200 … -c-cook-2/

This is a perfect demonstration that there are workable, highly beneficial economic systems. This one was submitted to the G20 last year, along with a petition. Of course it was totally ignored. The very fact that our “leaders” continue to maintain and support such a debilitating economic system as the current one, that hugely benefits the few at the expense of the many, is one more demonstration that the interests of “we the people” are the last things on their minds. Having looked at just about every monetary system humanity has used over time (where records are still available), I conclude that without a doubt we are now using the worse possible one, ever…

The only likely outcome of maintaining the current debt-based economy is financial feudalism and re-entering the Dark Ages; a time of famine, poverty, suffering and ignorance for the vast majority.

We need a monetary revolution to stop this. Now !

Otherwise don’t say I didn’t warn you…

Web-Bot forecasts global financial collapse and revolution

I’ve always thought that the internet, if used in an intelligent way, could be a tool for understanding part of the human unconsciousness, at least that of the subculture that has the money for a computer and the literacy to write something – This does unfortunately exclude many other subcultures completely who don’t happen to fulfill these criteria and tend to get totaly forgotten by everyone these days, and whose own collective unconsciousness has few ways of interacting with the world via modern technology, but at least we can get a better grasp on the inner worlds of the masses of computer users that populate the web  – most of the industrialised world and it’s activities.

A group of linguists and computer scientists who have pushed this approach to the extreme are those responsible for the Web-Bot project. For those of you who have never heard of it their Web-Bot is a very complex and ambitious program involving millions of “bots” that scour the net daily; I’ll try to explain my understanding of it: They put out requests for the bots to scan for various theme words that appear with high frequency, and the bots grab any text found anywhere on the net that contains the theme, keeping words preceding and following the theme word. Those then get filtered, categorized and counted, with the result being a list of associations with the theme word, in order of occurence, with dates, etc. This they have engineered into a kind of forecast system, not of the absolute future, but of a combination of human expectations and all the real data, news etc. that resides on the web in any shape or form.

The system is far from perfect, and has some known drawbacks, but does very well forecasting very big, worldwide events, and events that depend on a lot of web based data.

So, seeing all the Doom and Gloom currently circulating throughout the trend research community, from LEAP predicting global systemic crisis to Gerald Celente pronouncing “the first shots in the second American revolution have been fired”, I thought I would get the mighty Web-Bot’s take on our near future. I was not disappointed ! Quite a read !

The Web-Bot’s forecasts, and the interpretations of the Web-Bot team are extremely alarming – they seem to have evolved considerably in their outlook on the world since they started making stock market forecasts twelve years ago.

I think I detect just a touch of cynicism in their reports…

Amongst other things they forecast within the next two years (!):

– The imminent collapse of the dollar, followed by most of the global financial system (by late October the markets should show some serious wobble…)

– Epidemics from laborotary originated diseases AND the vaccinations used to treat them

– Mass refusal of obligatory vaccination

– Global famine – the worst in memory

– Riots, “refuseniks”, revolts, lawlessness

– Numerous assassinations of members of the oligarchy, their underlings, and even TV & media personalities representing their interests

– Insurrection against the elite in the US, that eventually goes global, when many revelations about the extent of their nefarious activities emerge (whistleblower and “save my skin” epidemic)

– New forms of insurrection eschewing violence, but many other violent groups

– Intensification of earthquakes and freak weather, winds, floods, “life threatening moments” – human migration from coastal areas

– big problems with the global fisheries – rapid die-off of many fish

– Creation of alternative markets, black markets

– Disasterous attack of Israel on Iran, leading to lethal global fallout after a nuclear “accident”

– Isreal being very surprised by Iranian (+ allies) defences and being vitrified by atomics

– In 2010, mansions and palaces of the wealthy will be burned down. Symbols of corporate power will be attacked by mobs

– The Vatican, suspected of storing food, will be burned and looted by hungry mobs (apparently a lot of linguistic fire references in our future !) after using gas or chemical weapons in defence

– collapse of many forms of infrastructure

– Attempts at restricting movement and martial law by governments that fail fairly fast, but after a lot of casualties

– Succesful long term sustainable “breakaway civilization” movements that simply step away from society to make their own

– Big, terminal problems for our Governments that are forced to clean up their act or be replaced

…and a litany of other hootin’ tootin’, rock n’rolling, earth shaking, paradigm shifting, planet busting stuff !

One point they dwell on and return to often is the revelation of the extent of the evil activities of our psychopathic elites by whistleblowers, betrayals, backstabbing, etc… Well, anyone reading this Blog will know what I think of that. ‘Bout bloody time !

And that’s even before you get to the “SpaceGoatFarts” section where the Web-Bot project dumps all the strange linguistic artefacts that don’t fit in anywhere else, or that are otherwise beyond the pale. Here apparently we should expect contact with aliens good and bad, on and off-planet, with hostile acts on both sides – starting with NASA trying to bomb the moon ! Dammit, Fox Mulder was right…

A word of warning before freaking out: there is a “built in error toward the most extreme connotations available in language and trend interpretation.” “The information presented uses words that presume the worst-case for future manifestation of the collective unconsciousness” say the Web-Bot team.

Unfortunately Web-Bot has correctly predicted many large scale events in the past well before they happened, and the worst case scenario came to pass: both 9-11 and the current economic crash amongst other things.

If a quarter of their forecast occurs, even to a lesser degree, we are in for the wildest – and most dangerous – times in our lives.

Just in case the Web-Bot is right, maybe we should start thinking of ways of attenuating the more extreme events now. I for one, will discourage any form of violent revolution (except in self-defence, of course) – there are so many more intelligent forms of civil disobedience that are far more effective; I think Ghandi proved that. So if people out there want to kick over the sand castle, please think carefully about what you are doing – and the consequences – first. Violence attracts repression like a magnet so is counter productive. Besides, it seems there will be easily enough violence to go around anyway.

See you soon; I’m off back to my (breakaway civilisation)

Money and power: a toxic bond

It appears that despite all the horrible things I can say about economists some of them actually agree with me; some of them are even a bit politicaly correct ! Unfortunately (fortunately ?) this one might not be viewed as such, as she is  Samah El-Shahat, Al Jazeera’s resident economist; Al Jazeera being the media outlet that was unjustly smeared by the US administration – even being compared to a terrorist  organisation at one point – for persistantly telling the truth about the war in Iraq, or as close as they could get in those difficult reporting conditions.

Mind you, being smeared as a terrorist propoganda outlet is probably a compliment coming from the Uber-Masters of biased media, the US. Especially since almost everything Al-Jazeera reported turned out true.

Samah El-Shahat sees the world economy from a developping country’s perspective, being a developement economist, so is approaching international banking etc. from an angle not too far from my own. I shall be following her series with interest over the next few weeks, and post here anything worthwhile.

Here’s the first one:

The latest joke buzzword in Finance: oversight

Don’t you get a fuzzy warm feeling too when the word “oversight” is used several times in the same soundbite from some polititian or economist ? It sounds reassuring that some important sounding body is being given the job of watching over our great and grimy financial institutions…

Unfortunately, the bigger the bank, the less the oversight.

If anyone out there still doubts how little oversight exists over the banks that hold the entire finances of powerful countries in their hands, here is a video of  the Financial Services Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations hearing of May 5, 2009

It would seem incredible, almost funny video if this was not the future debt of countless generations of americans that is being dealt with in such an arrogant, opaque way.

It seems to add insult to injury the federal Reserve is even making interest on the tax payer money used to bail out it’s own institutions.

No wonder US gun shops have broken all their records selling more ammunition over the last few months to american citizenry than ever in history…

Well, it is about time this vampiric system got changed, but it would be nice if it could be done in a peaceful, sensible way rather than the usual bloodbath.

To cut years of world-wide agony short maybe confiscating the assets of everyone involved at the top levels, investing the money in alternative energy and putting all big money wall street types to work replanting the amazon would be a good idea. Unfortunately our governments represent their interests and not ours, so they will prefer to let the world economy collapse, throw everyone in the West into debt-slavery from birth, and starve the third world to death. Sound improbable ? It’s happening as I speak…

The elite probably think they don’t need us peasants any more anyway, at least in such numbers – after all, since the “post war dream” we have developped science and technology enough already for them to all live in health and luxury from now on, with a few servants and all the cheap technology money can buy – the rest of us can be plunged into an impoverished dark ages.

But in stride with the “normalising the unthinkable” process, chipping away at humanity’s very essence, I’m sure a lot of people would ignorantly help them achieve that unspeakable end.
