Emanuel’s Four Speeches “Money is no Mystery”

These four speeches on the nature of money were delivered in September, 2022 to assert the true nature of the current financial crisis in its proper historical context.

“The Origins of the Money Crisis”

Money is no Mystery

Part One

Emanuel Pastreich

September 3, 2022

That pretty printed paper in your wallet, that stuff called money, where does it come from? What gives it value, and why can you buy things with it? The question is not an idle one, nor is it a cynical one, but rather ultimately practical. And yet, this essential question is never asked by the authorities who lecture us on economics, nor the politicians who grace us with their precious opinions from their gilt offices.

That is to say that even though the media brainwashes us into believing that money is the most important thing in the world, money itself can never be a topic for discussion.

The problem of money is an old one. The current crisis of money is a crisis of value, a crisis in which our money is cut down, eviscerated, and slaughtered before our very eyes by an invisible butcher called inflation, in a secret ritual whereby money is printed up by the Federal Reserve, using black magic, and then doled out to the rich and to the banks for free.

As we enter final horrific stage of this travesty, we will be forced to switch to digital currencies that are controlled by unaccountable powers at the Federal Reserve, powers who will turn off the money in our wallets, or freeze our accounts, or seize our money for taxes, or for fines, at their whim.

When banks print up money to buy stocks, or pay off the debts of the rich, the money in your pocket, in your savings account, decreases in value proportionally. In short, the rich are stealing your money by diluting it while you sleep. They call this theft “inflation,” implying that money becomes worth less following some natural principle. Inflation is, according to them, a natural disaster, like an earthquake or a typhoon, like a flood or a drought.

This fiction about money and value is backed up by the authoritative musings of the pay-to-play experts. But they all know that the money in your bank did not become less valuable because of an act of God. It was crushed when the banks cranked out trillions of dollars to buy worthless stock, to purchase useless weapons, to buy up farmland so that you will pay more for food, to buy up housing so that you will pay more for rent.

We cannot understand the current money crisis unless we consider the process by which we got here over the past hundred years.

Specifically, it was the establishment of the Federal Reserve on December 23, 1913 that started this downhill path. Although we needed a national bank accountable to the Congress and to the people, one in which money was created and regulated by the government in a transparent manner in accord with the Constitution, we ended up with a system wherein private banks have the final say over fiscal policy.

Sadly, the crafty and devious banker J. P. Morgan, and not visionaries like our founding fathers, put together the system that regulates money, that serves as the heart of the nation’s economy.

Although the system worked, the poison slowly spread through the body politic over the next century as the private banks used their control of money to bribe (that is to say, “to lobby”) congressmen, presidents, professors, journalists, and all other authority figures to endorse this system, thereby leading the cow to the slaughterhouse.

Ultimately, the fiscal policies of the United States, the creation, distribution, and the determination of the value of money, are determined by private bankers, or by government officials at the Department of the Treasury were raised by the banks, and are loyal to them, not to the people.

There was a period, from the 1930s to the 1970s, when the Federal Reserve was relatively well administered. Government officials were aware of the dangers of unregulated global finance and they benchmarked efforts to control capital in Europe, and even in the socialist block. But the corrupt and unconstitutional nature of this false national bank never really changed: it sought to toss off the flimsy chains put on it during the New Deal, and it reared its ugly head again in the 1990s.

When the banks discovered that their secret takeover met almost no opposition in a decadent passive society, they decided to seize control of not only the economy, but of politics, of education, of medicine, and of culture in 2020.

Men and women of conscience abandoned the federal government like rats from a sinking ship.

But let us go back to the value of money. Money was backed by gold in 1879. That meant that in theory you could redeem your dollar bill for gold, and on occasion people did so. But when the entire edifice of government and the economy collapsed in the great depression, President Franklin D. Roosevelt, on June 5, 1933, ended the gold standard and placed in its stead the authority of the federal government.

Although this move made sense in light of the horrific economic crisis, and the fact that the rich controlled all the gold, the result was that the dollar was no longer tied to anything but the impression that the government had authority. That is to say that the nature of money became ideological.

Yes, a tentative relationship between the dollar and gold was established again after the Federal Reserve had amassed a significant amount of gold, but that relationship was tangential. The citizen could not simply demand that his or her dollars be redeemed in gold, and even that tie was severed permanently by President Richard Nixon in 1971.

The move away from gold, from any concrete object that gave value to the slips of paper in your wallet, created a fiat currency, as it is called, and such an untethered money had a malign impact on American society, granted that the changes were so slow as to be imperceptible.

During the 1930s, the depression, the federal government printed up money to help pay those who had been impoverished by the collapse of the speculative economy.

Economic recovery for the working men and women was successful, but in a limited sense. The new role of the Federal government, the projects for electrification and road building, had a mixed impact on our society.

On the one hand, life became easier, and more convenient, and for some it was healthier. The poor were, for the first time, treated as citizens when programs like social security and welfare offered them real protection against the terrible poverty that has haunted the working man since time immemorial.

This approach to economics, to money, was deeply influenced by the experiments carried out in the Soviet Union in the 1920s, and it had real merits.

But there was a price to be paid for this solution.

The resulting New Deal was a compromise that brought change, but that demanded citizens give up economic, organizational, and intellectual independence. Our citizens came to rely on large organizations like federal government, and then later on multinational corporations—which essentially function as governments.

The small farmer in 1930 was largely independent in terms of money, energy, food, and the other necessities of life. They were many who met their needs without much interaction with banks or with government. The nation had been founded by leaders who felt that such independent self-sufficient farmers were the key to long-term democracy—a vision we should have held to.

Our citizens grew vegetables and animals for food, and could preserve that food for the winter. They produced energy from windmills, water mills, horses, and good old fashioned manual labor without depending on utility corporations, or multinational oil companies. They despised companies like Standard Oil that tried to make Americans dependent on petroleum.

Our citizens knew how to gather medicinal herbs and to treat health conditions without hospitals. They made their own furniture, bought iron tools from neighbors who forged it, or borrowed items from each other when required. Money was not critical to that economy, nor was consumption; chairs were made to last for a 100 years, dresses woven to last for 40 years. Frugality was a virtue.

The New Deal helped those devastated by the banks, but it demanded integration into a money economy run by the government, and specifically by the Federal Reserve, which remained under the control of the private banks who were just itching to toss off their reigns.

When the economy improved after the Second World War, and especially when Americans became dependent on government and corporations in the 1970s, the private banks starting making up the rules for money again, and buying off the supposed regulators.

Politicians will never suggest that we form cooperatives and establish our own local currencies, that we build a local economy that has no need for multinational banks or factory farms, no dependence on monopolistic logistics and distribution systems, no ties to marketing and sales gimmicks, nothing to do with the tools by which corporations mean to bleed us dry.

Almost all transactions today are carried out in the money controlled by the Federal Reserve, that is to say, money controlled by multinational corporations and banks, and the super-rich who hide behind them.

Moreover, as impressive as it may be that the dollar is the global currency, that means that any number of global banks and shifty billionaires around the world are interested in the dollar, not because they care about Americans, but because they wish to squeeze even more profit out of it.

You may be able to vote for a politician, and maybe your vote will be counted. But when it comes to the value of money, or to access to money, the United States is a dictatorship. The Department of the Treasury, the Federal Reserve, and the congressional committees overseeing monetary policy are tightly controlled by multinational private banks. No one who is not bought and paid for by them will be allowed to come near the process by which money is created and its value is determined.

And then there is the pseudoscience of economics, a field of study far less reputable than astrology and bloodletting, that tells us that interest rates, rather than the grand theft of money by multinational banks, is the cause of inflation; that tells us we must consume and waste in order to have a healthy economy; that suggests to us that importing food and other necessities from abroad through the parasitic logistics and distribution systems controlled by the banks, is a sign of growth, and that this scam is more modern and efficient than growing your own food and running your own local economy.

That fairy tale is a massive fraud. If you produce most necessities in your community and buy and sell, or barter, with each other, and if you run local banks as cooperatives, then the money, and the value, will remain in your community, and will not be siphoned off to vampire private equity firms in New York or Singapore, in London or Geneva.  

Propping up the wobbly Dollar

Money is no Mystery

Part Two

Emanuel Pastreich

September 4, 2022

The Federal government gave up all pretentions that money is backed by the gold held at the Federal Reserve, or backed by anything concrete, in 1972. The dollar became a fiat currency, money that is not tied to anything but reputation. Since that fatal day, the powers behind the curtains have maintained the value of the dollar in various ways.

The legitimacy of the dollar was tied to the legitimacy of the United States and its strength as a cultural, educational, scientific, technological, and sadly military, power. This approach worked until the 1990s, but the decay of the angel was inevitable.

As the value of the United States has decreased because of corruption and decadence, and because of the inevitable rise of the other nations devastated in the Second World War, increasingly devious means were employed to assure dollar’s value.

Covert efforts were launched to undermine the authority of other nations, whether Russia and China, or Germany and Japan. Perhaps it seemed like a good idea on Wall Street, but the result was the creation of a brutal winner-takes-all global economy—and the same covert means would be used finally against Americans themselves to keep them addicted to the dollar economy as it collapsed.

The United States slipped into a malignant culture. The decadence of wealth and power meant that innovation was stifled by conceited men like Steve Jobs or Bill Gates who pretended to be the inventers of things they stole and were enshrined in a handful of paralyzed institutions.

The quality of literature and art, of film and music, declined. American universities ceased to strive for truth and for science. Instead they crawled into bed with private equity and billionaire philanthropists, using advertising, rather than education, to prop up their global status.

The strategy of using culture to hold up the value of the dollar ceased to be effective.

Another approach was to tie the dollar’s value to the sale of petroleum, a product that everyone needs in our over-industrialized society.

The United States used its diplomatic, financial and military power to make sure that petroleum was only sold in dollars, thereby establishing a clear value for that fiat currency—that almost was equal to being backed by gold.

But that value was added to the dollar at a horrific price.

Many nations saw the value of selling petroleum in their own currencies, and they tried to do so. Those countries had to be infiltrated, undermined, intimidated, or bought off. In some cases, they had to be invaded and overthrown. The process has reached a crescendo in recent months, auguring for world war as the final consequence of this crusade to save the dollar.

You see, the United States had to control the Middle East, and to have its long fingers deep in the politics of nations around the world, in order to keep this petroleum system going. The cost of holding up the dollar was horrific, and bit by bit, the United States was corrupted beyond recognition. 

Wars for oil, and other natural resources, became the primary concern in foreign policy, not peace. As a result, militarism sunk its roots deep in the economy, deep into the very spirit of the nation. There was no space left to seek for cooperation and accommodation. Any threat to the dollar had to be beaten down brutally.

At the same time, it was necessary to promote petroleum, and a consumer culture that demanded petroleum usage, at every level in America, and around the world. Automobiles were glorified, cities were designed to make automobiles necessary, oil-based fertilizers, and pesticides were sprinkled on industrialized farms. Oil companies and auto makers became all powerful because they helped to prop up the value of the dollar and forced petroleum on the common man.

The other device for backing the dollar was the promotion of global free trade, a system wherein products that could be made locally by neighbors are shipped halfway around the world, burning fuel all the way, so as to make sure that most everything on your plate, on your table, on your back, has passed through the logistics monopolies who take their cut. 

This global “free” trade destroys local economies and renders citizens dependent on multinational corporations like WalMart and Amazon that take their money and do nothing to help the local economy.

The dollar was placed at the center of this closed trade system—anything but “free.”

Average Americans were impoverished even as the dollar was promoted in our name. Our republic was transmogrified into a ruthless empire that demanded everything be bought and sold in dollars.

The cancerous military economy also served a critical role in propping up the dollar as the other sources of power faded in the 1990s.

Nations could be invaded, or sanctioned, if they did not accept the dollar as the global currency.

Military equipment became a form of meta-currency—nations were compelled to purchase overpriced, and often worthless, military systems for billions of dollars as a way of propping up the dollar. Those designated as allies of the United States were expected to purchase fighter planes and tanks, drones and missiles at exorbitant prices. The most notorious example is the F-35 stealth fighter which costs around 80 million US dollars each and is barely functional. These devices, bulky tokens, force the large transfer of foreign capital into dollars in the name of security.

With trillions of dollars unaccounted for, the Pentagon has become the primary money laundering operation for the world, taking in money from billionaires, drug dealers, and just about anyone else and paying them off with money from the defense budget, and from weapons purchases from around the world.

Of course the threat of force makes the fiat currency stronger—but the cost is endless war.

Another ingenious way of propping up the dollar is to force debt on our citizens, making them scramble to obtain the dollars to pay off debts incurred in the process of trying to stay alive and to meet the criteria demanded by corporations for employment.

The cost of healthcare has skyrocketed, as has the cost of education. We find ourselves hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt just for being born, educated, treated for illness, and buried—let alone more serious challenges. And the banks drive up the cost of a home through their endless speculation with the fraudulent money they have printed up.  

Chase Manhattan and Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley and BlackRock, using their pay-to-play authority figures who appear on TV, or at Harvard University, set the value of everything in society, justifying why it must be so expensive.

How many times have you heard your friends talking about money, about how much money they have in their pensions, how much their houses are worth, how much they spend for their children’s educations? Money has been made the primary topic of discussion for our people because the media, the entertainment complex, and the educational system make it that way. The questions: How can I be a good person? What is the truth? What is justice? What does the Constitution say? These questions have disappeared from our discourse.

The Bretton Woods complex, centered around the World Bank and the IMF, and linked to central banks around world, was flawed from the start, but recently it has degenerated much further into a Disneyland of make-believe value wherein human endeavors can only be assessed according to the Procrustean metrics of growth, production, consumption, exports and imports. The rise and fall of the stock market, the bond market, and other fantastic ephemera is considered the determining factor for the well-being of mankind by every newspaper or magazine from the fascists to the socialist, and these metrics of growth and consumption are cited in the university, the government, and the corporation. 

In a horrific farce, the fundamental values of humanity: modesty, honesty, sincerity, chastity and humility are treated as at best as hobbies for the leisure class after they have accumulated wealth, but are frequently presented as obstacles to economic growth that requires waste and impulse.

Frugality, is the greatest sin, believing that one can live a spiritually and mentally healthy life without waste is an insult to the beastly ritual of consumption that is held up for all to worship.

Caring for your ill parents, helping your neighbor to repair her window, growing potatoes, or teaching your children to be ethical and to distinguish the truth from falsehood, all these actions are negatives for the gross domestic product, negatives for your standing in society.  

Along the way, we drifted from a cooperative economy into a predatory economy, into a parasitic economy.

That process was linked to the two most horrific traumas that shook us to the core.

The only way to cover up the frauds of 9.11 and of COVID-19 over the last twenty years is to silence citizens by making them an offer they cannot refuse: chose money or truth. 

The truth is that the billionaires own nothing except a bankrupt and covetous ideology of money.

The purchase of farmland by Bill Gates, the paving over of priceless farmland to erect pointless shopping malls, highways, and highrises by construction firms and real estate speculators, all this was done using the bogus money printed for them by their lackeys at the Federal Reserve.

That land belongs to all of us. The parasites who have murdered our people so viciously with COVID-19 weapons, or poisonous processed foods, or chemicals dumped in our rivers and lakes, those parasites shall hold no dominion. 

The first step for addressing the money issue is to give the land back to the people and allow them to grow their own food, make their own furniture, and be independent of the covert stranglehold of the multinationals.  

Similarly, we can write our own music, hold our own concerts, make our own art, put on our own theatre, and thereby leave behind the decadent Hollywood culture of sexual titillation and momentary narcissism. 

Take away the imperative to collect money at all costs so as to meet artificially created need to consume, and many social ills will be cured. The institutions regulating money have been turned against the citizens whom they should be protecting.

Multinational corporations, and their puppets, flush with our money, lecture us about recycling and sustainability, about how we must tighten our belts, but they will pull every punch to make sure that no one threatens the plastic and paper packaging systems they have set up to extract profit from us at every turn.

We are not citizens empowered by a contractual relationship with each other using money as determined by Constitution, but rather we have been reduced to consumers who can conceive of value only in terms of dollars because Madison Avenue advertising and public relations firms have indoctrinated us to embrace the false values of the cult of the self.

Because we have been reduced from citizens of a republic with a sense of civic responsibly to consumers of the gaudy wares laid out to distract us, we are led forward not by a clarion call, but by a ring through the nose. We are not masters of our fates; we are no captains of our souls. We are but products to be processed and then disposed of like the ragdolls littering the squalid cage of an idle ape.

No! Our eyes must turn to the hope of a new nation coming. 
We must trample those hideous grapes of wrath, 
unloosing the terrible swift sword of truth; like lightening, that the truth may go marching on.

Digital Currency leads us by the hand down the primrose path to slavery

Money is no mystery

Part Three

Emanuel Pastreich

September 5, 2022

The decay of values, the decline of crafts, of art, of literature, and, above all, of intellectual inquiry in the United States leaves us facing a wasteland wherein money is the only sentient beast, demanding due worship by all.

This horrific change was accompanied by the hollowing out of the economy. We went from agriculture in which there is a clear relationship between labor, product, and the moral and physical wellbeing of the family, to manufacturing in which production was cut off from daily life and monopolized by global capital, to a consumption and the service economy which is mediated by computers, creating online platforms controlled behind the curtains by unaccountable multinational technological monopolies.

And now, in the last stage of the decay of the angel, we are encouraged to welcome as a sign of advancement the replacements of humans with robots, drones, and AI systems. Citizens have no role in this alien economy and we can only feed our families by engaging in some banal activity at a tremendous distance from family and neighbors, and then bringing back the dollars so earned to purchase products sold retail by multinational corporations.

When family farms were replaced with factory farms, when local manufacturing was replaced with imports from China and Thailand, when local businesses were ruthlessly exterminated by monster outlets funded by private equity in the name of efficiency and free trade, when the banks stand triumphant on the ruins of what was once America, they will unfurl a new slavery, dressed up as fashion, safety, and identity awareness, that will crush what remains of our selves. Fascism will come to America when it is downloaded from an I-phone, or posted on Facebook. 

Corporate media networks keep repeating the same fraudulent reports about how technological progress had ushered in a better world. Hapless students are taught from elementary school that money is the highest priority, that new technology is required, as is competitiveness, in order to secure a happy future.

Because all aspects of human experience have been farmed out to multinational corporations like Amazon, WalMart, Google, Microsoft, Facebook, and Disney, organizations that function like governments but that are not subject to the Constitution, organizations that keep their finances offshore, we have lost the ability to assess what is true; we have been blinded physically and spiritually. 

The private banks ran the show under Presidents Clinton, Bush, Trump, and Biden. They offered us a brave new world in which the stock market determined the health of the economy, a stock market that was inflated by stock buybacks using fake money generated by quantitative easing.

Citizens were forced by their retirement plans to put their money into this ponzi scheme. The corporate media encouraged them to think that funny money printed up by the Federal Reserve was real and that farm land, natural assets, universities and research institutes, even government institutions like the Center for Disease Control that the billionaires had bought with that fake money actually belongs to them. 

Derivatives (futures, options, and swaps) are the most abominable of the wretched creatures unleashed on the working man. Derivatives form a system wherein multinational investment banks can claim to have a financial interest in goods they never own using the Mickey Mouse games cooked up by IT experts. The profits from derivatives, in the trillions of dollars, have nothing to do with the real world, but are created out of whole cloth for the billionaire class through the manipulation of information.

Another monster is cryptocurrency, and other forms of digital coinage that crawl the floors of the putrid seas of greed and fraud in search of innocents and fools. These want-to-be currencies follow the primary directive laid down by the grandfather of modern economics P.T. Barnum, “There is a sucker born every day.”

These cryptocurrencies are promoted as a form of money more stable than the bedridden dying dollar, but the metrics that determine the value of BitCoin or Ethereum are rigged by bankers stringing along the little man until he can be wiped out in 9.11 financial disaster.

That final day of reckoning is not far away. Already trillions of dollars of our money was doled out to billionaires through qualitative easing, dumping our money into rigged markets for stocks and bonds, and of course the grotesque ladling out of trillions more during the 2020 COVID crisis.

We cannot know where that money went.

Why? Because the role of intelligence organizations (now run as for-profit corporations) has been vastly expanded over the last two decades. Along the way, they have merged with international investment banks and private equity to become essentially one, a dark octopus colored by greed and fraud that encircles the Earth in its stranglehold, then led by Goldman Sachs, now led by BlackRock and friends, the name does not matter much. What is certain is that its tentacles are wrapped around the neck of every local economy.

The thickest tentacle encircles the Capitol, the United States Congress.   

The result? Fiscal and monetary policies are made classified; it is crime to disclose to the public the crimes of global capital. Congress has passed legislation known as “secret law” which has the effect of Federal statutes, but that cannot be made public.

I would love to explain to you this process, with concrete examples of how BlackRock, the Houses of Saud and Windsor, private equity firms, and other entities behind which the super-rich hide, have used secret and top-secret classification to hide their theft of your money; but if I did, I would go to jail and this speech would come to an abrupt end.

The zombie becomes a vampire

The clammy hand of digital currency reaches from the grave to seize us

Now that they have sufficiently degraded our thinking with childish entertainment and a culture driven by narcissistic impulses to keep us unfocused, distracted, and naïve, the time has come for them to launch the final incarnation of money, the vampire that will suck all remaining value out of us, leaving us spiritually and physically impoverished.

I am speaking about the CBDC (Central Bank Digital Currency).

We shall not allow the American worker to be crucified on a cross of ones and zeros.

For yes, verily, the CBDC is the final stage in the decay of the dollar.

President Biden issued an executive order, not a law, entitled “Ensuring responsible development of digital assets” –that means the opposite of its name. This order hands over the treasury to the bankers.

Everyone knew that a law creating a digital currency could not be passed, even in this corrupt Congress. Only the doddering, tottering, Biden could try to make this power grab seem legitimate.

This digital currency will move your savings from your bank to the Federal reserve where it will be used by such monsters as Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and be unrelated to any aspect of the economy as we know it.    

The billionaires must push through digital currency quickly, before any organized resistance is possible. Citizens who are not billionaires must be deprived of the ownership of property, of their labor and their thinking, and even of their own bodies. The right to travel, or to communicate, must be ended so that the billionaires can rule with absolute dominion.

Digital currency will also be linked to a carbon credit system whereby the invisible hands of the World Economic Forum, not those with moral or scientific credibility, will determine what you can buy.

The Federal Reserve, now but an appendage of the financial blob encircling the Earth, will be empowered by digital currency to turn off your access to money, to freeze the money held in your name, before you can call a lawyer, or make any appeal, and to do so through multinational IT intelligence firms accountable to no one.

You will not have any right to contest the seizure of your money, or your possessions. Your appeal will not go to a judge in a human-based constitutional system, but will be handled by smiling and uncaring AI systems.

In the name of sustainable development, under a United Nations that has become the play toy of billionaires, your money—and NOT the money of billionaires–can be designated as legitimate for buying candy bars, but not for buying nails and lumber, legitimate for buying silly Netflix films, but not for purchasing forbidden books. You will be able to purchase food imported from Mexico at WalMart, but will not be able to buy the lettuce and cucumbers grown by your neighbor.

You will be prohibited from travelling abroad, but those with private planes, those involved in high level public-private partnerships, will be free to do so. 

This digital money will be under the control of the Federal Reserve, tracked by corporations on government contracts, and protected by the FBI, Secret Service and other federal agencies that are now on permanent loan to multinational corporations.

Needless to say this action is a violation of the United States Constitution which grants Congress authority to borrow money, and to “coin money and regulate the value thereof” (Article I, section 8). But if no one stands his or her ground, the constitution will be used to mop the floor.

Increasingly, we cannot conduct the transactions of daily life using cash. Already, the United Kingdom, Finland, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, and China are well on their way to eliminating cash. They say it is in the interest of convenience, modernity, and safety. But in fact they are opening the gates of hell, paving the road to tyranny.

All we need is a crisis that will force us to embrace this new digital currency. Already they are planting the thermite of hyperinflation in the wobbly columns supporting the dollar. As I speak, they are preparing a controlled demolition that will have us all on our knees when the cardboard messiah of digital currency manifests itself after the crash. 

A revolutionary dollar of the people, for the people, and by the people

Money is no Mystery

Part Four

Emanuel Pastreich

September 6, 2022

We cannot stop this silent takeover of the American economy, and of the Earth’s economy, a takeover making use of the covert devaluation of money, the reduction of the Federal Reserve and the Department of the Treasury to agents for the rich, unless we confidently and bravely propose an alternative and simultaneously declare that the monetary and currency policies of the “public private partnership” of the billionaires are illegal and immoral.

The rich have any number of tricks to fool us into accepting the false idols that they have prepared so lovingly, to cajole us into welcoming the Trojan horse of digital currencies, just as we were forced to accept COVID payouts that made us dependent on an unconstitutional government, a United States of multinational private equity following a classified constitution for the few.   

Creating false money and branding it as our currency is an act of counterfeiting, even if that act is undertaken by firms with fancy Wall Street offices run by gentlemen wearing three-piece suits.

That act in itself, even if covered over with the thin veneer of government institutions, is grounds to arrest the stakeholders (not just the CEOs) of these banks and to seize their assets.

But there are a few steps that must come first.

We must face the reality of contemporary America as it is, not as we wish it were.  

That brave act will lead us to the painful conclusion that the takeover of the Executive and Legislative branches is so complete that lobbying against, advocacy against, the rule of money by the banks is not the first step towards our liberation.    

No, we must first establish a currency which will serve as the foundation for a productive, not speculative, moral, not extractive, economic system that follows the Constitution and natural law, one that is independent of the poisoned Federal Reserve, one that offers a full-formed alterative to the slavery that awaits us. 

The transformation of money must be revolutionary. Progressive change is no longer possible. But it must be revolutionary in a sense that appeals to the better angels of our citizens, not the dogs of war who bay at our doorstep.

A revolutionary dollar in five easy steps

1)

Education for the citizens about money

Economics is the most corrupt and purposely obscure field of pseudoscience, a devious practice run by high priests who attribute the purposeful destruction of our economy by billionaires to science, suggesting that hyperinflation and overproduction are the equivalent of the snow and rain, proposing that the raising or lowering of interest rates, and the doling out of money to multinational corporations, is the way to relieve the suffering of the common man, the common woman.

Our children are taught horrid falsehoods from elementary school on, told that the destruction of their futures is the result of forces beyond their control, the product of a temporary setback, when laceration of their dreams is the explicit goal of rich and powerful.

The first step in our resistance is to educate citizens about what the economy is and how it truly works.

We must go to the streets, go door to door, and we must explain logically, scientifically, and patiently what is going on behind the screaming headlines.

There is no need for juicy donations to the Harvard Business School, or funding for the Economist Magazine from billionaires, in order for the man in the street to understand how the economy runs, how money is created for the billionaires, and how debt is created to enslave us.

We must tell them the truth about digital currencies, the stock market, derivatives and other frauds, explaining how these cooked-up indicators of growth are unrelated to our economy.

We must explain to the citizens how banks create money out of thin air, and how the digital currencies and cryptocurrencies are but a trap meant to trick them into surrendering the last traces of real ownership to faceless AI.

Citizens must grasp that this digital money, is not money at all, but an IOU note to them from unaccountable powers, a note that can be cancelled at any moment for bad behavior, for no reason at all.

They must understand that its value is determined by computer banks owned by multinational corporations. Digital currency is, in other words, a weapon of mass destruction.

2)

Denounce the fiat currency dollar controlled by multinational banks and launch the revolutionary dollar

The collapsing dollar system threatens to take us down with it, be we white collar or blue color, man or woman, black or white. But corporate media tries to divide us against each other using ethic and identity conflicts of its own creation.

Just as other nations must free themselves from the dollar-dominated economic system, so also must the citizens of the United States declare their independence from this banker-driven Titanic.

Taking the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution as our sword and our shield, we will bravely assert the true relationship of the citizen to the federal government, insisting that only we the people have the right to issue currency through a Congress that is accountable, in word and deed, to us.

We will assert that the value of the dollar must be determined in a transparent and accountable manner, in accord with the Constitution.

If that is not the case, and it most obviously IS not the case, then it CANNOT be considered as a currency. It is but pretty printed paper.

We will assert that the new digital currency, and the Federal Reserve’s fiat currency dollars, now controlled by multinational banks, are by their self-evident nature unconstitutional, illegitimate, and criminal.

We will refuse to use them for economic transactions and we will allow citizens to convert their fiat dollars for our substantial revolutionary dollars in accord with the true needs of the working people of our country, not the greed of the moneychangers and the speculators.

The “Revolutionary Dollar” will support an accountable and transparent monetary system that is based on value, not forced debt, not the threat of military force, and not chimeric digits floating in cyberspace.

You heard right. The revolutionary dollar will be a democratic currency that is issued directly to citizens following the Constitution.

This new democratic economy will be local in nature, but will include transparent and verifiable systems for national and international exchange that are independent of the casinos run by the gamblers and tricksters.

That independent economy will be based on concrete contributions from the citizens, and will offer a clear alternative to the rotten globalist economy that drags us towards slavery.

3)

Establish the value of the revolutionary dollar

The revolutionary dollar will be grounded at the local level in credible agreements among citizens that determine its value with regards to concrete goods and services. The revolutionary dollar will go hand in hand with a transparent, accountable, and democratic banking system, banks that are run as cooperatives by the members of the immediate community first.

But even more important than establishing a free and democratic dollar, we must help the citizen to reduce his or her dependency on money and encourage self-sufficiency, local barter, and cooperation within the community.

Turn strangers into neighbors and you will magically find solutions to many economic needs. It is because you do not know your neighbor, do not trust the man passing you on the street, and have grown distant from your son and daughter that you must conduct all actions via money. That is no accident. That was the plan all along.

The revolutionary dollar will permit a true market economy in which the currency is tied, through participatory discussions, to a set value for three kilos of tomatoes grown in your garden, for two hours of babysitting, for fixing a sink, or for walking a dog every day for a month.

That is to say that the currency will return to the original function of money, a marker in our shared society that allows for a transparent barter system wherein we can cover most needs without ever turning to a multinational corporation or bank.

Trust between neighbors, and between family members, will allow us to govern ourselves, to create an organic system wherein we set the value of money in response to the needs of the citizens in the local economy.

Money will be tied to goods, services, objects and other substantial things, tangible or intangible, through a participatory process wherein citizens set prices through discussion, and establish markets based on real demand.

That process of determining value through open debate between citizens will mean the restoration of politics in the original sense of the word, not the debased Los Vegas strip show to which we are subject today.

The goods and services essential to life: food, tools, housing, transportation, energy, as well as the fundamentals of civilization: rigorous science, moral education, profound intellectual engagement, and the philosophical, aesthetic and spiritual practices that define humanity, will be assigned value within the revolutionary dollar.    

The will be no space in this democratic economy for the conversation to revolutionary dollars of ill-got digital fortunes, narco-riches accumulated by billionaires and their intelligence lackeys, money now recorded in the bankrupt fiat currency. The extra billions claimed by multibillionaires by adding a few zeros to the figures in their Amazon, or Google supercomputers, will also vanish.

Inflation will be vanquished by the revolutionary dollar. In addition, no individual, no one family, no class of privileged people, will be permitted to monopolize money, goods or other assets beyond the bounds of fundamental social justice.

So also the debt owed by citizens in that fiat dollar cannot be converted into revolutionary dollars. The revolutionary dollar will be jubilee in every sense of the word.

4)

Creation of local banks for the people

The fiat currency dollar has become a tool for the rich to buy up assets from ordinary citizens using phony money that is backed by the authority of the federal government.  This scheme has worked because the commercial media gave this “money” undue legitimacy, and because the dollar was no longer backed by precious metals, and because there were no longer local banks granting meaningful loans to local citizens based on the actual money deposited, to stand in opposition to the international banks.

We must establish local banks that are committed by their charters to being run as cooperatives, committed to investing entirely in the local community, and committed to basing their loans on the money they actually have, that is tied to real objects, to real labor, or to real institutions of substance.

The loans offered by these banks must be for ordinary people, in real money, and they must be for productive and helpful activities.   

Those banks must focus on the local, must focus on the long-term wellbeing of the community, the environment, and the future of the nation.

Long-term low interest (30 year loans) and micro-loans, will allow the citizen to purchase high quality, locally handmade pairs of shoes that will last for 30 years, or tables that will last for 100 years, for less money than would cost a shoddy set of imported shoes, or an imported fiberboard table sold by criminal distributor like Walmart.

5)

A global monetary system for the people

Ultimately a new international, and not globalist, financial and trade system must be built from the bottom up, one that permits for healthy and constructive economic interactions starting from the local community, expanding across the nation, and finally reaching out to the citizens (not the corporations) of other nations.

No part of that financial and monetary system will be controlled by the multinational logistics and shipping companies, the large-scale marketing and retail firms, that are run by Wall Street, and the financial monopolies like BlackRock and Vanguard, and the families like the Houses of Saud and Windsor, the Waltons and the Rothchilds, the Kochs and the Mars, who hide behind them.

A healthy, citizen-centered, financial and trade system for the Earth requires transparent and reliable currencies that are outside of the reach of globalists.

We will bypass the poisoned economic system of the globalists entirely.

The sad state of our economy

The bankers, and their friends at the Treasury Department work day and night to put off the inevitable bursting of the bubble, and they will use any means, even if that means the destruction of our nation. The United States resembles the train in the Marx Brothers film “Go West!” the cars of which were chopped to pieces to feed the locomotive’s engine, leaving behind a wreck.

Money without value is the only thing keeping the ship of state afloat. But over time, creating money without value is a horrific ritual of self-cannibalism for a civilization.

Fear of war, fear of pandemics is essential to keeping the population from understanding how the economy, and the culture, is destroyed.  

The critiques of this criminality offered by true conservatives like Ron Paul have been replaced with faux conservatives like Donald Trump created by the banks.

The trenchant critique of markets and global finance offered by Marxists and socialists in a previous age have been supplanted by the indulgent chatter about gender and race offered by the so-called “left.”

Enough is enough! Over the last fifty years, the Federal debt has increased 75-fold from $400 billion to $30 trillion, thus rendering your money nearly worthless. The elite have grown wealthy; the citizen has been driven into poverty.

Verily, it is a sordid, vicious racket that poisons the very life blood of the nation. Truly this market, now a corpse, demands at least, an honorable burial.

Affirm the real economy and denounce the fake economy

Personal morality, the needs of local communities, transparency and accountability, local banks and local finance, are concepts alien to the discourse on money promoted in the gaudy media today.

We cannot purchase a solution to this problem with the dollars that are created, regulated, and controlled by the private multinational banks.

Remember that degradation of money is inseparable from the decay of personal ethics, and of the sense of citizenship at the local and the national level.

We can have healthy food, potable water, quality tools and furniture, livable housing, meaningful education and a profound intellectual, cultural and spiritual experience which will make life worth living. That is our goal. Money can help to achieve that goal by setting up equivalencies for exchange, but money itself can never be the solution to the problem.

When the ancients said that money is root of all evil, they had their reasons.

The trust between citizens is the skeleton to which the muscles of the revolutionary dollar will be attached. The revolutionary dollar will be the base on which an independent and moral economy is built.

No longer must our citizens dive into an immoral and parasitic economy in order to obtain the filthy dollars need to feed their children. Such contradictions, such abominations, must be abolished.

Remember that we are fighting a techno-fascist global system that will try to outsmart us, to overwhelm us, by creating false value using its fiat currencies and digital currencies.

That global system uses algorithms calculated by supercomputers, and bribes any number of authority figures, to convince us of its legitimacy.

Yet ultimately we will win because the value of our money, our revolutionary dollars, will be rooted in human interactions, in actual value.

The revolutionary dollar backed by the Constitution, and supported by concrete economic transactions between citizens, will allow us to say to the billionaires like Bill Gates that when they bought up farmland in Montana or Minnesota using the money printed up at their request by the Federal Reserve, that they did not gain ownership in any sense and that their fiat money, their digital currency, shall have no value.

In addition, take notice! The financial crimes of promoting poisonous vaccines are more than enough to justify the seizure of all the assets of these criminals.  

Our revolutionary dollar, in other words, will be the wooden stake driven through the heart of the zombie economy, will be the swift sword that strikes down the vampire market, will be the silver hammer that knocks over the rotten casino set up by the money changers of Wall Street.

What will they do, when their goose is cooked, when their money is worthless and their fake assets have evaporated?  That is not our concern.

Our nation belongs to its citizens. Our rivers and fields, mountains and oceans, cannot be owned by anyone but remain our cherished common legacy to be preserved far, far into the future, long after the parasitic billionaires are safely entombed in their gaudy graves.

(the title “Money is no Mystery” is adopted from the famed speech by that title delivered by Charles E. Coughlin on December 30th, 1934)

Crisis in Intelligence and the Way Forward

Crisis in Intelligence and the Way Forward

Emanuel Pastreich

1. Making the Information Crisis into an Opportunity for Brave Reform

The crisis in intelligence in the United States has reached an extreme today as the multitude of contractors that feed on massive, and often obscure, budget, clamor to be fed without any concern for the long-term interests of the citizens of the United States, the constitution that defines that nation, or the security of our brittle planet.

The question of what to do, however, is not so simple.

No matter how much intelligence agencies are maligned or rebuffed, it is a fact that the covert gathering of information by governments, corporations, and other organizations has gone on for thousands of years and, granted human nature, will continue to be a reality in the future. The process can be regulated, to a certain degree, and it can be given a higher purpose, but it cannot be eliminated.

But the current situation is unsustainable and dangerous. The commercialized exaggeration of the term “intelligence” so as to extend into the field of human experience has distorted and diluted its meaning. Both creating deep misunderstandings when it is applied inappropriately and suggesting that anyone and his uncle can engage in intelligence.

Sadly, although there were remarkable figures in intelligence in the United States who have stood up for the accurate and scientific analysis in intelligence and who have opposed the abuse of authority by intelligence agencies for profit, (some going to jail, most simply disappearing into obscurity), such moral commitment has declined perspicaciously over the last decade.

The entire intelligence community has been radically privatized so that those in senior positions merely oversee the granting of contracts to contractors and have little sense of camaraderie with others engaged in a global battle for the wellbeing of our citizens.

Intelligence agencies that once played a critical role in keeping politicians and other government officials, up to date on the true threats facing the nation, have been carved up by jackals and hyenas working for multinational corporations.

Essential analysis has been outsourced over the last two years to Facebook, Google, Amazon, Oracle, and other multinational corporations that cannot be said to be “American” in any sense of the world. These lumbering leviathans are owned by banks and private equity funds around the world, many of which are happy to sell short the United States at any time.

The result? The entire intelligence community has been transformed into an appendage of big tech that abuses the authority of the Federal Government to advance the corporate agendas of these monopolies.

Not everyone is in on this game. Some bravely fight against the silent takeover. Nor is this battle entirely new. Terrible internal conflicts have wracked the intelligence community before—often completely unknown to the man in the street.

But this destruction of “intelligence” is far more serious and must have been in the context of the greater act of menticide, the murder of the human mind, undertaken against all American citizens by shadowy multinational finance.

Whether it is journalism or education, entertainment or advertisement, the goal is to reduce us to instinctive animals that are incapable of anything but a desire for food, sex, and superficial distractions.

The conspiracy channels would have you believe that it is intelligence agencies that are driving this war on the citizens. This interpretation, although not entirely without basis, is a serious misunderstanding.

Although intelligence agencies have always had corrupt elements happy to do the bidding of the powerful, they have also had pockets of the brave and the committee who have the technical and geopolitical understanding and the training that allows them to stand up when professors, NGO leaders, and politicians hide in fear.

The evidence of criminality within intelligence agencies is overwhelming, but the ultimate source of those orders remains obscure. The massive privatization of intelligence means that the line between government, corporations, and organized crime are blurred, or completely disappears. Sadly, the super-rich is able to misuse these organizations and then redirect all blame to the CIA.

The breakdown of intelligence is taking place at precisely the moment that we desperately need a system that can assure the integrity of information in the United States, and around the world, for our citizens.

This intelligence crisis is taking place at the moment that we must assure that those in positions of authority have access to accurate scientific information, not distorted commercial media, or the slick brochures of lobbyists and persuaders.

We have an obligation in intelligence reform the citizens of the United States and to the scientific truth. We have no obligation to conform to corrupt practices in Washington, D.C. that are accepted as reality.

2. Intelligence and the Crisis in Governance

Professors and researchers, ethically committed citizens and journalists, should lead the charge in the search for scientifically verified information that will serve as the foundation for ethical governance. At the same time, we must recognize that the search for scientific truth is not a democratic process. If we are voting on the truth, treating all opinions as equal on Capitol Hill, then we are no longer engaged in ethical governance and democracy is impossible.

It would be the best tit we could limit the role of intelligence agencies to specific intelligence-gathering missions in the diplomatic and security fields, and to small-scale counter-intelligence operations. We should cut back the massive bureaucracy that benefits from creating, and expanding, problems, and create a small focused group of experts.

That vision, often articulated by experts, is not readily available to us today.

First, the intelligence apparatus has grown so bloated over the last twenty years as a result of the deliberate misinterpretation of the legitimate imperative to respond to the vast implications of the information revolution. We must recognize that the sprawling fields of intelligence subcontractors that surround the CIA, NSA, and now most branches of the Federal Government, will not simply disappear by magic. A complex transformation must take place in which new roles are established and a new institutional culture put in place that holds up high ethical principles, not the pursuit of budgets for private profit.

Moreover, the simple pursuit of truth in the post COVID19 era is a matter of life and death. The level of risk involved in speaking the truth in the face of multinational corporations and other shadowy organizations that defend the interests of the global rich is far too much for the timid likes of professors, journalists, and other researchers to take on. If it were not for the support (often hidden or tacit) of those in intelligence agencies, the hard-hitting alternative media would have been suppressed long ago.

Thus intelligence, a combination of the capacity to gather and analyze information, to promote a perspective even the most hostile environments, and to take action to respond to threats (real or perceived), is what makes these agencies so dangerous and at the same time so necessary in the face of the massive degradation of information taking place today around the world.

The above intelligence capabilities have often been employed by the rich and powerful to suppress alternative views and enhance their influence. That part of the story is well known. The manner in which intelligence agencies have used these three capabilities to defend people is virtually unknown. Yet that is precisely the role that is demanded by today’s crisis.

Reforming intelligence into a reliable and ethically committed institution that addresses directly the misuse of information by techno-tyrants is made even more difficult by the burgeoning conspiracy industry.

When I use the term “conspiracy industry,” am not assuming, as some would, that the various conspiracies discussed on the alternative media are specious and unfounded. There are numerous conspiracies that have taken place or are taking place, around the globe. Any intelligence professional must first accept the remarkable depravity of humans and accept that the battle for a better world requires us to pick our fights.

The conspiracy industry, however, often promoted by corrupt branches of the intelligence community, combines real evidence of the crimes by the global elite with fantastic, or exaggerated, narratives about Satanism, devil worship, Chinese and Jewish conspiracies for global domination, and other tales in a manner that misleads citizens as to the real interest groups behind these conspiracies and also makes it possible for authority figures to dismiss real evidence because those presenting it also talk about UFOs and the Second Coming.

In an age in which you can easily lose your life trying to speak the truth (inside government or outside government), we need for strong organizations, let us call them intelligence agencies, with the slap-down capacity, need to protect those investigating the truth. Only if the search for truth has a real backbone can it serve as a compass in the cloud of information chaos.

The fact that many of the intelligence experts have previously thought only about their paycheck and consulting contracts should not discourage us concerning the potential for transformation. Profound crisis, such as we face today, makes such transformation possible.

We must start by turning back the privatization of intelligence. We have seen an exponential increase in this trend over the last five years, a shift that can be traced back to the weakening of intelligence organizations after the Vice President’s directives for privatization as an effort to crush resistance to that regime within the intelligence community.

I was shocked when a friend recently sent me postings for job openings in North Korean intelligence analysis at Facebook, Amazon, Oracle, and Microsoft. Positions that once had to be held by government officials on long-term contracts paid for by tax dollars are now controlled by multinational corporations loyal to short-term profits.

Suffice it to say that Facebook, Amazon, and Microsoft are not American organizations. Their stock is owned by the global elite, from Paris to Moscow, from London to Beijing, and they make decisions based on their interests.

Moreover, major investment banks like BlackRock and Goldman Sachs, which have also played a big role in the privatization of intelligence, have decided to sell the United States short as part of a strategy for reducing domestic resistance to tyranny by outsourcing American industry, that produces educated and self-sufficient individuals, to China, India or elsewhere. We need intelligence officers capable of standing up to multinational banks, not serving as cover for their nefarious plots and ruses.

We never want to see again a scam of the global elite pinned on the CIA while the real culprits celebrate in luxury.

3. The Impact of Technological Change on Intelligence

Part of the problem can be traced back to technological change and is not the result of the evil done by individuals. The exponential increase in the capacity of supercomputers in accord with Moore’s Law has created a tremendous capability to manipulate the decision-making process on a global scale and give undue power to the very few who control such supercomputers.

The small group of billionaires who control the best networks of supercomputers has become a shadow government that is above all the politicians we see on television.

Just as Gresham’s Law suggests that debased coinage will displace pure coinage in the economy as people start to hoard, the degraded information we are being fed by the media and by multinational corporations has displaced accurate information completely in our society, leaving citizens to try to make sense of the garbage that they are fed by the corporate media, universities and research institutes now bought and paid for by multinational banks, and celebrities cultivated by those same forces.

As Arthur C. Clark suggests in his novel 2001: A Space Odyssey, technology is not simply a passive tool subject to the human will but is a force in itself that can determine human evolution and human thinking.

The exponential development of technology has created an environment in which new unprecedented risks are unleashed. The few can amass detailed information about all individuals in the world and also control the information that is presented to the citizens so as dumb-down the population (making democratic process impossible) and to slowly reduce us to slavery. The Constitution ceases to be of meaning in that process and the government becomes tyranny.

This process is already well underway in the United States, and the super-rich who are pushing the buttons follow the strategies of menticide outlined by Joost Meerloo in his classic study The Rape of the Mind: The Psychology of Thought Control, Menticide, and Brainwashing (1957).

Government is not prepared to respond to the radical degradation of, and manipulation of, information that underlies the true information warfare we witness today. We are not talking about Chinese spies who steal secrets, but rather multinational equity funds (including Chinese and Russians, but also Japanese and Americans) that intend to destroy the capacity of citizens to think for themselves.

Government is the first victim of the systematic manipulation of information by global technology tyrants. In fact, the tyrants who have launched this world war like to hide behind the façade of government and to attribute their evil acts to government officials.

The intellectual response to this global takeover may come from journalists, university professors, community groups and other activists. But they are easily intimidated and cannot formulate the strategies for global information warfare.

As dangerous as it may be to turn to intelligence agencies in response to this global assault, we are left with no choice.

The critical point, the decisive aspect, of the proposed reforms, is severing the connection between global finance and intelligence and then creating out of the parts of the intelligence community a powerful force, like the Army of the Potomac, that adheres to the Constitution, creating a group of patriots devoted to the interests of the citizens, to the true, and to principles of the Constitution.

To be specific, that means that the CIA, NSA, DIA, FBI and other organizations must be taken back by citizens of the United States, transformed into organizations that not only do not report to Goldman Sachs, BlackRock, Vanguard—or to the superrich who lurk behind those organizations, but that are capable of frustrating, or even facilitating the arrest and prosecution of the heads of these organizations.

We know for a fact that normal courts do not have the spine, or the global structures, necessary to take on these global forces that claim to control wealth beyond that of most nation-states.

Once the sections of the intelligence community that is not hopelessly infected with the cancer of global finance are able to rally, they must first assert that they are the government, not the appendages of global finance and that they are empowered by the Constitution to use their awesome power to defend the citizens against slavery by technology, much as Abraham Lincoln did in 1860.  

4. Defending the Intelligence of the Citizen at Home and Abroad

If we think more deeply about the future of intelligence in the United States, we are led to the inevitable conclusion that part of our role will be to defend “intelligence” in the other sense of the word: the capacity of citizens to think for themselves so as to play their sacred role according to the Constitution.

Although we have been so overwhelmed as to be unable to formulate our position, the current trend of “menticide” directed against citizens by the globally integrated AI systems controlled by the super-rich is an attack on the Constitution, and by extension, on the United States.

That is to say that a new role of intelligence must be to defend the ability of citizens to think, to serve citizens, and not to have their minds destroyed by pornography, video games, addictive apps, and the manipulative social media employed by dark forces to reduce them to passivity.

We must formulate a national and a global system to assure the accuracy of the information and to prevent its abuse that allows us to create a space for a regulated and public system for the control of information for the benefit of citizens that does not belong exclusively to multinational corporations, or to the rich. Current efforts funded by multinational corporations, directly or indirectly, to assert what is fake news have no legitimacy.

The question will be whether we can create, out of the ashes, new intelligence institutions that are “of the people, by the people, and for the people.”

Journalism will be a major part of this effort. The degradation of journalism over the last twenty years has been one of the most severe threats to national security. Much journalism today is a matter of opinion, with no application of the scientific method, no opportunity for alternative opinions, or for honest debate. Arguing that human activity does not impact the climate, that the Earth is flat, or that the Biden administration is Communist are allowed to pass without any scientific analysis.

The obvious answer for many is to intelligence out of journalism and to allow for a free press that is not force-feeding citizens the agenda of multinational corporations. Many citizens have rightfully demanded such actions and advanced powerful arguments for an end to this media puppet show.

There is another vision that deserves to be taken seriously, even if it seems counterintuitive at first glance. That is to argue that reformed intelligence agencies that represent the citizens and the Constitution should play a central role in the rebuilding of journalism in the United States and defending journalists.

Those who argue that intelligence should simply leave journalism alone are hopelessly naïve. Although it is certainly true that the influence of big money on intelligence, and on journalism, must be ended, we find ourselves in the midst of a hot information war on a global scale. Things may look peaceful for those sipping lattes at Starbucks, it is increasingly common for journalists who touch on sensitive topics to be threatened, or killed, around the world.

If we want to have journalism that presents accurate information in such a state of war, we must protect journalists and journals and make sure that they develop so as to fulfill their constitutional role.

In the current situation, it is necessary rather to rethink intelligence as a force that can fight for the integrity of information, and this transformation is possible.

It is not without risks, but nothing in war is without risks.

5. Moving Forward with True Intelligence Reform

We need to step back and take a new view of what the true challenges for the United States, its citizens, and the citizens of the Earth, are in this age of unprecedented technological change. We need to assure that that the United States has government agencies that provide the most accurate information possible to its lawmakers and to its citizens and that assures that the information in circulation is reliable. Such an institution does not exist now, even though it is desperately needed.

Such an institution can easily degenerate into a “Ministry of Truth” that suppresses the truth on behalf of the powerful. It does not have to follow that route, however.

In this age of fake news and massive mental manipulation, our citizens are subjected constantly to distorted information that are produced by the rich and powerful. The intelligence community which could protect them is assigned to an entirely different task and there is no other powerful institution to protect them.

The result is information anomy. The Internet is rapidly decaying into a ruthless jungle. Newspapers and TV news have degenerated into propaganda mouths.

It is essential that our citizens have accurate and objective sources for information about the world that assures stability in government policy and that will end the reliance of government officials on sensationalist media, or corrupt lobbyists, for information and analysis. True intelligence reform is not just about improving methodologies and policies, but about establishing a new vision for a healthy information ecosystem that makes its role critical to the wellbeing of all citizens. If done well, intelligence will no longer be a dirty word in our society.

(Korea IT Times, November 4, 2021)

The Scientific Basis for Mask Mandate and Social Distancing

Yes, of course there was a scientific basis for the mask mandates and the social distancing policies enacted around the world that have destroyed human civilization and concentrated wealth in the hands of the very, very few. Masks and social distancing was based on real science, on real experiments. The experiments were carried out in places like the Guantánamo Bay Detention Center set up by the Bush administration on January 11, 2002; set up in a legal grey zone, on land that did not belong to anyone, and thus could be taken over by military contractors, private equity and a host of parasitic interest groups which have still yet to have their masks ripped off.

Here they conducted the experiments on how to destroy the human mind, how to modify behavior through psychological trauma and the repetition of mindless patterns and rituals until the weaknesses of the brain were fully exploited.

Then they went global, like Amazon or Facebook, like Twitter or Oracle, with their technology for destroying the human will, for collapsing the ability of citizens to think for themselves.

The entire world is subject to unending trauma and the repetition of falsehoods in accord with those experiments. That is the science of COVID-19.

Of course they blame in the Chinese Communist Party, or the Jesuits and the Masons. That blame is not 100% wrong, but everyone knows that it is not the whole truth, not even close.

Who was behind these gruesome experiments? That is what we must demand now. We do not have much time.

Also, we cannot be so intellectually lazy, so ethically sloppy as to blame the just CIA and the Pentagon. Those attack dogs were horrific, but they were just taking orders from behind the curtain. Do we have the bravery to pull back that curtain?

贝一明 (Emanuel Pastreich)教授所遭遇的一切

贝一明 (Emanuel Pastreich)教授所遭遇的一切

2000年4月,贝一明 (Emanuel Pastreich)在偶然的机缘之下前往伊利诺伊大学,参加了一场在那里召开的新兴在线学习技术展示会,并被任命为该校的助理教授。他认为远程学习技术可以让自己同远在亚洲的学术同仁紧密合作,因此而欢欣鼓舞,开始在这一领域献计献策。几周之后,他提出了自己的建议:让伊利诺伊大学和东京大学、首尔国立大学和北京大学等东亚地区的几所顶尖研究机构共享在线课程、进行共同研究、开展机构层面的合作。尽管上述亚洲院校很可能无法与伊利诺伊大学建立亲密无间的关系,但该提议颇具新意,而且伊利诺伊大学的远程学习技术十分先进,因此贝一明先生决定全心全意地投身于这一项目之中。

贝一明先生通过多年的学习掌握了汉语、日语和韩语,同时同中、日、韩三国主要院校的高级领导层均有私交,这些有利条件使得他能够迅速推进自己的计划。

2000年6月,贝一明先生根据各个院校的具体需要和关注以中、日、韩三国语言准备了复杂完备的提案。当时他已经在伊利诺伊大学和伊利诺伊大学厄巴纳-尚佩恩分校培养了一大批支持者,从工程学院、法学院到农学院和商学院,到处都有他的拥趸。这些院系为他提供了十分充足的资金,让他前往亚洲与相关方面讨论上述提议、从秋季开始通过一系列网络研讨会来推进计划。

然而就在这时,该项目出现了严重的问题。贝一明先生所在大学的东亚语言文化学院部门领导和文学院院长忽然拒绝为他的亚洲之行提供资助;在六月份之后,他们甚至对贝一明先生的提议闭口不谈——要知道,他们曾经是贝一明先生有力的后盾。他们此时的抵触情绪简直毫无来由。

尽管如此,贝一明先生还是筹足资金,于七月先后前往韩国、中国和日本。他的提案在三个国家的主要院校受到了热烈的欢迎。首尔国立大学最为热情高涨,北京大学与东京大学紧随其后。

随后,贝一明先生回到了伊利诺伊大学。他以为自己能够因为项目大获成功而受到英雄的礼遇,同时也期望着同学校上层讨论如何进一步推进这一远程学习项目。但是他发现大学的院系负责人在校报的采访中对他的三国之旅横加指责。除此之外,系领导甚至不愿意同归来的贝一明先生就上述项目当面交谈。

贝一明先生的提案原本得到了整个伊利诺伊大学和三所顶尖亚洲院校的拥护,如今伊利诺伊大学东亚研究院却对其嗤之以鼻,这实在荒唐至极。在这一切的背后一定隐藏着巨大的秘密。

起初,贝一明先生认为院系领导要么是嫉妒工程学院的影响力——因为该学院会在远程学习项目中起主导作用,要么不愿意让资历较浅的教授大受关注。可是对方似乎并非如此狭隘之人,这样的理由实在让人难以信服。

真相是贝一明先生在无意之中被卷入了一场斗争,斗争的各方远远超出了他的接触范围。是美国联邦调查局和中央情报局的工作组针对贝一明先生的系领导采取了非法的秘密行动,令其阻挠远程学习项目的开展,而这一切与该领导的个人意愿毫无关联。

他们在极为反常的情况之下采取了这次行动,其目的是让贝一明先生的提案无果而终,且在有必要时毁掉贝一明先生的事业,以确保提案中同美国与亚洲之间学术合作相关的创意和倡议永不见天日。

贝一明先生的提案中不仅有网络学习方面的建议,而且还包括朝鲜半岛统一、中美关系改善等地缘政治问题的全面解决方案,这些方案已经引起了相关亚洲国家政策制定者的共鸣。该提案的汉语、日语及汉语版本已经在中、日、韩三国得到了广泛的传播。

然而对于美国的某些政客和军方策划者而言,提案中的某些建议对他们构成了巨大的威胁。当时正值克林顿试图将美朝关系正常化,而那些人却决意不择手段地让各方面认为朝鲜是美国的敌人,中国是美国的潜在敌手,永远不可能成为美国可靠的伙伴。

他们认为,为了保持美国在亚洲的军事存在、维持美国与其东亚盟友之间的主从关系,采取上述措施确有必要,否则数十亿美元便会危在旦夕。

于是美国联邦调查局和中央情报局(或许还有美国国家安全局参与在内)联合派出了秘密工作组,从四月份开始在暗中破坏贝一明先生全力推进的项目。

军工企业(而非良知尚存的现役军队)中的强大势力无法令项目戛然而止,因为贝一明先生的提案让人眼前一亮,而且或许可以带来丰厚利润(远程学习即将成为价值数十亿美元的产业),韩国、日本和中国的相关组织已经采取了其中所列出的初步步骤,美国政府机关几乎无计可施。

然而随着时间的推移,尽管困难重重,上述工作组还是找到了摧毁提案的方法。

自从2000年8月起,校内职工与各位领导便接到了工作组的明确指令,通过直接或间接方式与贝一明先生保持距离。他们甚至命令贝一明先生的院系领导采取一系列步骤来离间贝一明先生及其同事。随着五角大楼内部支持与反对与朝和解的两派人争斗得难分难解,贝一明先生也吸引了华府的关注。当时他对这一切茫然无知。

2000年12月,军方的右翼势力在灾难性的大选中掌权后,局势变得险恶无比。这一切与贝一明先生的努力不无关系,针对贝一明先生的种种行动开始不断升级。

伊利诺伊大学中,几乎没有人愿意同贝一明先生会面交谈。

布什政府任命极端分子在军队与情报机构中担任要职之后,他们便做好了对贝一明先生采取极端措施,以此来警告政府与学术圈内其他“顽固派系”的准备。

他们只是在伺机而动。

2001年2月24日,中华读书报刊登了一篇由贝一明先生撰写、呼吁在东北亚建立全新和平格局的文章。他们等待的时机终于到来了。这一世界共同体方面的愿景以中美伙伴关系为基础,却成为了“中国威胁论”游说团体的最后一根稻草。他们下令让贝一明先生立即“自杀”。尽管据说该命令的发布人是乔治·W·布什,但布什本人与贝一明先生并无私仇——除了回应军工联合派系势力,他别无选择。

倘若没有科林·鲍威尔等人的积极抗争,贝一明先生必死无疑。随后,意欲致贝一明先生于死地的各方终于做出妥协,转而在四年的时间里让贝一明先生不断地受到死亡威胁与“不甚严重”的骚扰,同时也使他永远无法继续开展自己的事业,以儆效尤。

贝一明先生的父亲听说儿子罹患精神疾病,特意于二月前来探望。在他们的哄骗之下,这位父亲相信自己的儿子在几年前接受了脑部肿瘤切除手术,现在他所陈述的一切都是妄语,是脑肿瘤后遗症发作的表现。他们专门为贝一明先生的亲友精心编造了一则弥天大谎。

在父亲到来之后,贝一明先生被强行送到了医院,并且在没有经过任何医学检验的情况之下被判患有精神疾病。在那里,他被迫接受各种毫无意义的治疗,其中包括服用未经医疗评估的抗精神病药物。

在贝一明先生与受命治疗他的精神医生会面的过程中发生了一件有趣的事。这位医生对贝一明先生的健康情况并不在意,却频频向他询问对美国安全局势的未来有何看法,甚至想要读一读贝一明先生阐述自己观点的文章。

就这样,医患对话的内容逐渐被地缘政治方面的简短讨论所代替,而后又拓展至如何应对布什政权的极权统治等话题。2001年4月,贝一明先生就怎样恢复美国法治提出了建议。从很多方面来看,此时的他已经成为了布什政权反对意见的具象,反抗当局的力量已然围绕着他组织起来。这一团体在逐渐收回控制权方面起到了重要作用,而且准备在2001年9月开展进一步行动。

贝一明先生并不知道自己在向何人表述观点,但他的确得到了同重要人物交谈的机会——尽管这样的机会并不多。不过在大多数情况之下,他仍然同大学师生乃至其他美国国民处于完全隔绝的状态。

此时的贝一明先生所处的境地相当怪异:他遭受软禁,且不断受到死亡威胁,可与此同时,在美国的内外政策中,他又是举足轻重的人物。

从2001年2月到2002年夏天,贝一明先生都在因为“患有精神疾病”休病假。2002年4月,他终于被给予了更大的自由——尽管当时愿意跟他见面的人寥寥无几。

2003年,“失去劳动能力”十八个月的贝一明先生获准再度任教。2004年,他再次获得了争取终身教职的机会。

2003年,贝一明先生得到机遇做了几场演讲。2004年,他甚至获批去日本开展两个月的调查研究。照此看来,他的事业似乎正在重回正轨。

然而2004年腐败多的美国大选将许多贝一明先生的支持者驱赶到了政府之外。尽管贝一明先生已不再受到死亡威胁,但颇有资历的他却未能获得终身教职,并且于2004年12月被伊利诺伊大学解雇。

此后,贝一明先生提交了几百份工作申请,他的目标包括许多高等院校的教职、地方大学的兼职岗位、企业内的其他职务,以及与亚洲合作的非政府组织内的职位,可是他连一次面试机会都没有获得。在大多数情况之下,他发出的申请都犹如石沉大海,毫无回应。

只有一个例外。

有信函通知他可以担任中央情报局内的情报人员。

这份或许并不郑重的通知之所以被发出,可能是因为中央情报局是美国境内唯一一个有能力与布什政权相抗衡的组织。它足以让贝一明先生下定决心迁往华盛顿特区。他想,那里的就业机会应该比伊利诺伊州更多更好。

到达华盛顿之后,他花费了两个月的时间求职,但一无所获,而且中央情报局的那份录取通知也不出意外地作废了。他只好将家人送到韩国同姻亲共同居住,自己则跟一位表亲挤在一个小房间中。

2005年2月,贝一明先生在颇感意外的情况下受邀前往国会发表演讲。随后一名韩国大使馆的外交人员和一位韩国记者找到他,表示他们可以争取说服新任韩国驻美大使聘用他。

于是贝一明先生在韩国驻美大使馆得到了一份工资不高的工作——按照法律规定,那里并不是美国领土,就这样在华盛顿特区生活了两年。

最后,美国已经没有他的立足之地。2007年,他同意在韩国的一所小型高校内任教。

经历过艰难的起步之后,贝一明先生终于重拾学者身份,并于2011年得以前往当地更为著名的庆熙大学工作,但并未获得终身教职。他更喜欢为广大读者撰写书籍、在报纸上发表文章。在从2014年到2016年的这段时间内,他在韩国大获成功,却从来没有得到过美国方面的认可,也未曾收到过任何参会邀请。他偶尔会申请美国的工作岗位,但从未接到回音。

2018年,贝一明先生明白庆熙大学不会授予他终身教职,于是改在韩国较小的一所高校内工作。从2019年起,他开始计划返回华盛顿,以满足家人的愿望。

2019年夏季,他成功归国,但韩国大使馆和韩国经济研究所提供的工作并不足以让他在物价高昂的北弗吉尼亚生活。

新冠疫情开始后,他的情况更是雪上加霜。他与韩国大使馆的合约被作废,他再度陷入失业状态。在那两个月,对他而言,连做翻译的机会都无处可寻。

他无计可施,被迫回到首尔——至少在那里还有一点点就业的希望。整整五个月过后,他才重新有了收入。

在这段时间里,贝一明先生被迫同妻子和孩子分居两地,深陷债务。

2020年2月,身在华盛顿的贝一明先生宣布以独立参选人的身份参加美国总统大选,以回应自己再次遭受的、极为残酷的政治迫害。

他感觉如果想要求得生存,除了兵行险着、出其不意,别无他法。

在闲暇时间里,贝一明先生撰写演讲稿,发表演说,为美国经济与安保政策的革命性转变拟出了框架。

尽管贝一明先生的竞选活动同他所开展的大多数活动一样,被美国秘不示人的法律和警告所禁止,但他还是通过努力成为了韩国媒体乃至越南媒体报道的对象——尽管后者对他的关注度并不是很高。他精心打造的十五篇演讲稿为认真阅读过它们的美国人民留下了深刻的印象。

后来一本以这些演讲稿为主要内容的书终于问世,其韩文版本和西班牙语版本已在首尔和墨西哥城出版,日语、汉语与越南语版本也已发布。

随后贝一明先生继续撰写演讲稿,同时为唯一愿意发布其文章、拥护者众多的组织——全球研究(Global Research)撰稿。

他耗尽积蓄,将自己的书翻译成德语、土耳其语、法语、波斯语、波兰语、罗马尼亚语、俄语等版本,并为自己的竞选活动开设了一个精致实用的网站——pastreichprez.com。该网站得到了来自世界各地的关注。

乔·拜登颇具争议地当选之后,一篇不偏不倚、为唐纳德·特朗普辩护的文章出自贝一明先生之手,为其作者赢得了更加广泛的支持者。

2021年3月,贝一明先生开始以前所未有的严肃态度推进自己的竞选活动。在2000年与2001年,他曾为维护美国的领导力树立争取亚洲地区支持的愿景并为之而战,如今他又在为美利坚合众国的未来付出前所未有的努力,开展全球性运动——这二者之间有着某种奇妙的关联。

2021年,企业法西斯主义在整个世界大行其道,因此尽管他的书和演讲稿得到了广泛阅读,但他的建议几乎无人采纳。四月,他着手在韩国组建以统一朝鲜半岛为宗旨的国际革命党——这一行动在2021年9月,在他几经沉浮之后,成为了他主要的事业。此外,他还提出了建立美国临时政府的建议。

在整整二十年中,没有一个人为贝一明先生挺身而出,呼吁各方面公开讨论他在美国所遭遇的一切,更不必说要求政府开展调查。不懈呐喊的,只有贝一明先生自己。

Bezos Gates TS/SCI 25.10.2021

Gates

So, we did an internal review of where we stand right now. We are not happy. The teams that we set up to run a mainstream pro-vaccine line, through progressives, conservatives and other assets, and the conspiracy folks as well—the assets are simply not keeping up with the blowback—we knew was coming.

I have friends and they are not happy. They are worried about this. And the different tiers of vaccines, and the post vaccine plan, in the corporate world is not a secret any more. Things were not supposed to break down like this until at least March.

Bezos

Well..It is like we discussed last time. Don’t focus on the vaccine regime too long. The DD campaigns, Dumb down, are kicking in and the few who are still up and walking around are tracked 24/7. I have been impressed by the teams we have assembled for each country—and their country analysis is first-rate. We cannot do better.

Gates

Sorry, that’s not good enough; the Microsoft team is worried. And we knew from the beginning that if we did not get the mass majority vaccinated, and get the trouble makers bagged quick, that they would start to form some real opposition.

Bezos

 Listen, we did it on our supercomputers, we ran the whole program, and you did too. It comes up positive in every scenario. Sure there is some resistance and a little bit of organization. But ultimately the Guantanamo Studies show that repetition, boredom and lingering terror will break down any impulse to resist. Guaranteed.

Gates

Well, I say we run the Climate change crisis scenario again on the supercomputers and then implement it within the next few weeks. We do not have time, and we need to move to the “complete collapse” and “climate catastrophe” operations, right now! 

Bezos

That is high risk. We want to get at least 90% vaccination rates, even if it is difficult, even if we have to get some real pushback, because,before we move on to climate change, or the robot, satellite stuff we want to be totally prepared to make sure there’s no resistance out there. Of course you can talk about this stuff with your friends, but implementation is a risk even greater than 9.11. You cannot get the timing wrong.

Gates

I get that, but I think your Amazon team has miscalculated. I say, forget about profits and assets. Throw everything into getting the computer’s modelling right and then, please, please, strike when the iron is hot. We really do not have….

중국 공산당의 위협인가?

중국 공산당의 위협인가?

이만열 (임마누엘 페스트라이쉬) Emanuel Pastreich

2021년 10월 30일

대안 미디어, 특히 스스로 “보수”를 자처하는 이들의 대안 미디어 가운데서 코로나19 “백신”으로 인구를 죽여 감소시키고 기업 엘리트들이 유엔과 세계보건기구(WHO)의 이름을 이용하여 공작한 거대한 사기에 대한 통찰력을 제공하는 방식에 대한 상세하고 종종 꽤 정확한 정보를 제공하는 것이 흔한 일이 되어 왔습니다. 그러나 이 블로그들에 따르면 이 행동에 대한 모든 궁극적인 책임은 중화인민공화국의 중국 공산당에 있습니다.

대부분의 경우 결론은 중국에서 미국이 공산주의자들의 공격을 받고 있고, 반역 행위를 방조한 미국 내 민주당원들은 “좌파”라는 것입니다. 한국국내에도 보수언론이 같은식으로 문재인정권을 “친중”이라고 비판 합니다.

미국과 전 세계적으로 중국 공산당의 행동에 대한 우려가 근거가 없는 것은 아닙니다. 강력한 기업 이익, 중국의 슈퍼 리치들이 중국 공산당의 권위를 이용해 자신들의 이익을 증진시키는 사례가 있습니다. 하지만 미국의 “기업 파시스트”들에 의해 저질러진 범죄들이 중국 공산당에 속아 넘어가고, 국내의 진짜 악의 근원으로부터 관심을 다른 곳으로 돌리는 단순한 해석은 우리가 신중하게 조직된 허위 정보 캠페인을 보고 있다는 것을 암시합니다. 이들은 아마도 골드만 삭스, 블랙락, 모건 스탠리의 금융 엘리트들에 의해 자금 지원을 받고 있을 것입니다.

중국 공산당을 공격하는 목적은 우리를 쫓아버리고, 우리가 내부의 적을 알아내지 못하게 하는 것입니다. 마이크로소프트, 코카콜라, 페이스북, 오라클, 월마트, 아마존 (삼성, 현재, 카카오, 쿠팡) 과 같이 친숙한 브랜드들은 미국 과 한국을 강제 수용소로 만들고 있는, 국내 만연한 범죄 정책의 주요 원천이며 아마도 가까운 미래에 죽음의 수용소가 될 것입니다.

이러한 기업들은 슈퍼 리치들의 장난거리입니다. 이들은 중국 엘리트들과 비밀리에 거래를 하기도 합니다.

간단히 말해, 중국 공산당을 탓하는 이런 심리적 작전은 국내 파시즘의 쓰라린 현실에 대한 국민들의 이해를 최후의 순간까지 미루고 급진적 계급사회의 성장을 흐리게 하기 위한 것입니다.

“중국의 위협”을 과장하는 것은 슈퍼 리치들이 꾸민 방해입니다. 요점은 “당신이 외부 문명에서 온 외국인들”에게 입에 거품을 물게 해서 평범한 사람들의 삶을 파괴하려는 부자들의 음모를 이해할 수 없게 만드는 것입니다.

미국, 중국, 러시아, 이스라엘, 터키, 독일, 일본 및 기타 주요 강대국들의 기업 이익의 정치적 행동에 대한 대다수의 정보는 기밀로 취급되며 일반 국민들은 완전히 접근이 불가합니다. 우리는 먼저 우리가 아는 것이 얼마나 적은지 깨달아야 합니다.

지정학을 논하는 블로거들은 대부분 대중소비를 위해 만들어진 선정적인 이야기에만 스스로를 국한시키고, 중국과 미국의 엘리트들이 가짜 냉전을 만들어 일반 국민들 사이의 의미 있는 대화를 차단하고 수익을 증대시켰을 가능성은 언급조차 못합니다.

이러한 오류는 우연이 아닙니다. 자칭 전문가라 하는 그들은 계급 문제에 대한 언급을 거부합니다.

중국공산당은 중화인민공화국 정부의 일부로서 이론적으로는 인민을 대표하는 막대한 기관입니다.

중국공산당은 과거 엄격한 규제를 받았지만, 지난 20년 동안 규제가 철폐되었고, 현재 라이온스 클럽과 같은 조직의 많은 부분이 운영되고 있습니다. 중국공산당의 큰 부분은 친구와 가족을 위해 이윤을 추구하는 권력자들의 네트워크를 형성하지 정부 기관으로서의 기능을 하지 않습니다.

이것은 중국인들에겐 흔히 알려진 사실이며 국내에는 개혁과 진지한 노력에 대한 요구가 있습니다.

중국공산당 내에는 또한 1940년대와 1950년대의 당 전통을 되살려 다국적 은행이 아닌 노동자 편에 서려는 파벌들도 있고 그들의 수가 증가하고 있습니다.

미국의 민주당과 공화당은 비공개로 국가정책을 만든다는 점에서 중국공산당하고 같지만, 그 역할이 헌법에 규정되어 있지 않고 정부의 책임 있는 일부도 아닙니다.

기업 언론과 보수 블로그의 추진 배경에는 미국의 제도적 부패로부터 벗어날 수 있도록 중국공산당을 악역으로 몬 구체적인 목표가 있습니다.

1)

자유의 상실과 미국 경제의 의도적 파괴에 대한 탓을 미국 금융의 소산인 기업 파시즘이 아닌 “공산주의”와 “좌파주의”로 교묘히 돌리는 것입니다.

의도적으로 “기업 파시즘”을 “공산주의”로 오인하고 미국 CEO들의 범죄 계획을 외부 문명에 속하는 기만적인 중국공산당으로 돌리는 것은 19세기 미국을 지배했던 “황화” (黃禍)신화를 정치적 통제 수단으로 재창조하고자 조직된 최고 수준의 심리 작전입니다.

워싱턴 DC에서 먼, 중국에 만연한 범죄를 뒤집어씌우고 외국인이 지배적인 드라마를 만들어 비밀스러운 중국공산당은 미국내에 악이 얼마나 가까이 침투해 있는지에 대해 눈을 가리도록 합니다. 아마존, 페이스북, 뱅크오브아메리카, 코카콜라, 월마트, 마이크로소프트와 같이 미국에서 익숙한 브랜드 이름으로 태어난 범죄는 가려져 있고, 미국인들은 심지어 인식된 중국의 위협에 대응하여 이러한 위험한 외국 조직들을 “미국” 법인으로 받아들이도록 장려되고 있습니다.

하지만 이 다국적 기업들은 중국 공산당과 마찬가지로 의회에서 증언을 하고 로비 활동을 할 권리가 없습니다. 그들은 전 세계의 슈퍼 리치, 국적 초월자들, 그리고 주주들에게 이익을 제공합니다.

2)

중국 공산당의 악마화는 군수 공단의 지지를 받고 있는데, 이는 중국과의 전쟁이 일어날 것을 가정한 미국의 전시 경제 구축의 핵심이기 때문입니다.

급격한 금융 규제 완화의 결과로 미국 경제가 아노미 상태로 무너지면서 전쟁 경제가 구원책으로 인식되고 있습니다. 미 국방부를 통해 전쟁경제가 운영되도록 하면 다국적 기업들의 상당한 이익이 보장됩니다.

게다가 미국의 사법부, 입법부, 행정부의 부패는 군대가 정부에서 부분적으로나마 기능을 하는 유일한 부분이기 때문에, 군대의 역할이 점점 더 중요해지는 환경을 조성했습니다.

일반 중국인과 미국인의 대화가 불가능하고, 양국 내 관련 국민들 간의 연대가 성립되지 않으며, 양국 지식인 간의 대화를 추구할 수 없는 상황은 “신냉전” 조성에 매우 중요합니다.

국민들이 서로 대화를 한다면, 다국적 기업들이 양국의 경제를 파괴하기 위해 어떻게 중국과 미국의 노동자들을 서로 속이고 있는지 알 수 있기 때문입니다.

3)

보수 대안 미디어에서 발견되는 중국공산당과 민주당의 “좌파”에 대한 공격은 기업 파시즘의 사회경제적 결과와 잘못 연결된 대중의 상상 속에서 “공산주의”, “사회주의”, “좌파주의” 같은 용어를 부정적으로 낙인찍는 역할을 합니다.

30년대에는 미국 공산당이 흑인 민권 투쟁을 주도하고, 좌파가 오늘날 미국 노동자가 누리는 많은 복지혜택을 위해 투쟁했던 방식은 위협적인 중국 문화에 “사회주의”를 결부시키는 이러한 반좌파 운동 가운데 의도적으로 가려져 있습니다.

4)

아마도 가장 일탈적인 게임은, 미국인들이 코로나19 정권을 비판하는 목소리를 찾기를 원한다면, 반좌파, 반중국, 나아가 반아시아 이데올로기를 선택하도록 강요하는 경우일 것입니다.

언론에 등장하는 좌파들은 백신 접종을 찬성하는 사람들이고 우리가 보는 백신에 대한 유일한 반대자들은 도널드 트럼프의 우파 추종자들입니다. 이러한 정치적 구성은 좌파 및 진보주의자들로 하여금 백신의 명백한 위험을 반발의 두려움 없이 무시할 수 있게 합니다.

5)

모든 것을 기만적인 중국공산당의 탓으로 돌리는 것은 미국에서 누가 무엇을 소유하고 있는지, 그리고 부의 편중이 일반 사람들에게 진정으로 어떤 영향을 미치는지에 대한 진지한 분석을 하나도 하지 않도록 하는 교묘한 기피 방법입니다.

만약 국민들이 이 억만장자들이 혁신과 상상력을 통해서가 아니라 미국민들 소유인 연방준비제도이사회에서 현금을 훔치고 국민들을 처벌하는 인플레이션을 야기함으로써 큰 재산을 벌어들인 방법을 알게 된다면, 억만장자들을 감옥에 넣어야 한다고 요구하고 있을 것입니다.

국민들이 이해할 수 없는 애매한 중국공산당 탓으로 돌리는 것은 누가 무엇을 소유하고, 어떻게 인수했는지에 대한 논의를 피하는 데 도움이 됩니다.


중국 공산당과 관련된 부패와 권력 남용의 예가 있습니다. 이 부분은 확실히 사실인 이야기입니다. 그러나 중국 공산당의 악마화의 궁극적인 목표는 명백히 (요즘 급상승하고 있는) 워싱턴 DC에서 외국의 영향력을 줄이는 것이 아니라 오히려 미국 사회의 뿌리깊은 도덕적 부패를 설명하는 편리하지만 잘못된 방법을 찾는 것입니다.

John Brown’s “Provisional Constitution” and “Declaration of Liberty”

John Brown and his many supporters stood up against the crime of slavery and the corrupt and criminal administrative regime that enabled it in the 1850s. They proposed a provisional constitution that was not meant to be revolutionary, and a “Declaration of Liberty” intended to be an extension of the Declaration of Independence to all Americans.

Although many parts of the two texts are dated, or inappropriate to the current moment, the general import of Brown’s efforts is clearly relevent and provides us with a valuable historical precedent.

It is critical to note that although John Brown was tried and hanged for rebellion, that this argument was specious and fabricated by the criminal slave owners who were afraid that the Constitution might actually be interpreted to follow its original intent and thereby threaten their profits.

The Provisional Constitution, however, is explicit:

These articles not for the overthrow of government.

The foregoing articles shall not be construed so as in any way to encourage the overthrow of any State government, or of the general government of the United States, and look to no dissolution of the Union, but simply to amendment and repeal. And our flag shall be the same that our fathers fought under in the Revolution.

The situation is quite similar to the crisis we face today. Most certainly John Brown is an imperfect model, but he suggests something of what was possible and his work with Frederick Douglass was essential in assuring that the eventual conflict was not a meaningless brawl but had a deeper significance.

“Declaration of Liberty”


1858

“Provisional Constitution and Ordinances for the people of the United States”

PREAMBLE.

Whereas slavery, throughout its entire existence in the United States, is none other than a most barbarous, unprovoked, and unjustifiable war of one portion of its citizens upon another portion-the only conditions ‘of which are perpetual imprisonment and hopeless servitude or absolute extermination-in utter disregard and violation of those eternal and self-evident truths set forth in our Declaration of Independence:

Therefore, we, citizens of the United States, and the oppressed people who, by a recent decision of the Supreme’ Court, are declared to have no rights which the white man is bound to respect, together with all other people degraded by the laws thereof, do, for the time being, ordain and establish for ourselves the following Provisional Constitu­tion and Ordinances, the better to protect our persons, property, lives, and liberties, and to govern our actions

“A Declaration of Liberty”

1858

By the Representatives of the slave Population of the United States of America

“When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary” for an Oppressed People to Rise, and assert their Natural Rights, as Human Beings, as Native & mutual Citizens of a free Republic, and break that odious Yoke of oppression, which is so unjustly laid upon them by their fellow Countrymen, “and to assume among the powers of Earth the same equal privileges to which the Laws of Nature, & natures God entitle them; A moderate respect for the opinions of Mankind, requires that they should declare the causes which incite them to this just & worthy action.

We hold these truths to be Self Evident; That All Men are Created Equal; That they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights. That among these are Life, Liberty; & the pursuit of happiness. That Nature hath freely given to all Men, a full Supply of Air. Water, & Land; for their sustenance, & mutual happiness, That No Man has any right to deprive his fellow Man, of these Inherent rights, except in punishment of Crime. That to secure these rights governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That when any form of Government, becomes destructive to these ends, It is the right of the People, to alter, Amend, or Remodel it, Laying its foundation on Such Principles, & organizing its powers in such form as to them shall seem most likely to effect the safety, & happiness” of the Human Race, To secure equal rights, privileges, & justice to all; Irrespective of Sex; or Nation; To Secure Fraternal Kindness to all Friends of Equal Moral privileges, to all who honestly abandon their Despotic oppressive rule. We hold this truth to be self-evident; That it is the highest Privilege, & Plain Duty of Man; to strive in every reasonable way, to promote the Happiness, Mental, Moral, & Physical,

Elevation of his fellow Man. And that People, or Clannish Oppressors; who wickedly violate this sacred principle; oppressing th their fellow Men, Will bring upon themselves that certain & fearful retribution, which is the Natural, and Necessary penalty of evil Doing. “Prudence, indeed will dictate, that Governments long established, should not be changed for light & transient causes; But when a long train of abuses, & usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object; evinces a design to perpetuate an absolute Despotism; and most cruel bondage; It is their Right, it is their Duty to resist & change such Government, & provide safeguards for their future Liberty” Such has been the patient sufferance of the slaves of the United States, and such is now the necessity which constrains them to brush this foul system of oppression, The history of Slavery in the Unites States, is a history of injustice & Cruelties inflicted upon the Slave in every conceivable way, & in barbarity not surpassed by the most Savage Tribes. It is the embodiment of all that is Evil, and ruinous to a Nation; and subversive of all Good. “In proof of which; facts innumerable have been submitted to the People, and have received the Verdict & condemnation of a candid & Impartial World.”

Our Servants; Members of Congress; & other Servants of the People, who receive exorbitant wages, from the People ask in return for; for their unjust Rule, have refused to pass Laws the most wholesome & necessary for public good, they have refused to pass laws for the accommodation of large districts of People, unless that People, would relinquish the right of representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them, and formidable to tyrants only. Our President & other Leeches have called together Legislative, or treasonable Bodies, at places unusual, uncomfortable, & distant from the depository of our public records; for the sole purpose of fatiguing us into compliance with their measures. They have dissolved   Representative houses, for opposing with Manly firmness, their invasions on the rights of the people.

They have refused to grant Petitions presented by numerous & respectable Citizens, asking redress of grievances imposed upon us, demanding our Liberty & natural rights. With Contempt, they Spurn and our humble petitions; and have failed to pass Laws for our relief. They have prevented in all possible ways, the administration of justice to the slave, They have made judges Taney dependent on their will alone, for the tenure of their offices, & the amount & payment of their salaries, They have erected a Multitude of new offices, & sent on swarms of Blood Suckers, & Moths, to harass the People, & eat out their substance, They have effected to render the Military, independent of, & superior to the power & wishes of the People (the Civil power.) Claiming that knowledge is power, they have, (for their own safety) kept us in total darkness, & Ignorance, inflicting base cruelties, for any attempt on our part to obtain knowledge “They have protected base Men, Pirates (engaged in a most Inhuman traffic; The Foreign; & Domestic, Slave Trade.) by mock trials, from punishment, for unprovoked murders which they have committed upon us, & free citizens of the States.

They have prevented by law, our having any Traffic or deal with our fellow Men; Regardless of our wishes, they declare themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever. They have abdicated government among us, by declaring us out of their protection, & waging a worse than most cruel war upon us continually.

“The welfare of the People; Is the first Great Law.” The fact, & a full description of the enormous Sin of Slavery, may be found in the General History of American Slavery, which is a history of repeated injuries, of base hypocrisy; A cursed treasonable, Despotic usurpation; The most abominable provoking atrocities; Which are but a mockery of all that is just, or worthy of any people. Such cruelty, tyranny, & perfidy, has hardly a parallel, in the history of the most barbarous ages, Our Servants, or Law makers; are totally unworthy the name of Half Civilized Men. All their National acts, (which apply to Slavery,) are false, to the words spirit, & intention, of the Constitution of the United States, & the Declaration of Independence. They say by word & Act, That their own Children, or any faithful Citizen, may be legally robed of every Natural & Sacred Right, & that we, have no rights whatever.

They are a Blot upon the Character, the honor, of any Nation, which Claims to have the least shadow or spark of Civilization above the lowest, most inferior Cannibal Races. This is a slight though brief recital, of some of the enormous atrocities, of these Idle, haughty, tyrannical, Arrogant Land Monopolists; Slave holders our lords, & masters, From which, Good Lord Deliver us. These are some of the facts, which we now, (after the lapse of 83 years, since the writing & signing of that Sacred Instrument, Honored & Adored by our Fathers, which declares that it is Self-Evident that all Men are Created Equal, Endowed by their Creator with certain inherent rights &c”) submit to the Decision of all candid; true Republican, Friends of Universal Freedom, & Natural Equality of Rights. All We Demand; is our Liberty, & the Natural rights & immunities of faithful Citizens of the United States.

We will Obtain these rights or Die in the struggle to obtain them We make war upon oppression, we have no controversy with any Religious Sect, Our intention is not to molest any Good Man, whatever may be his religious belief.

We hold these to be self-evident truths, That any Tribe, Rulers, or People, who Rob & cruelly oppress their faithful Laboring Citizens, have within themselves the Germ, of their own certain & fearful overthrow; It is one of Nature’s Immutable Laws; that “According to the measure ye mite; so shall it be Measured to you again.” Herein is the secret of security & true happiness, for Individuals, And the Only Firm Basis, upon which Governments, may be p Permanently Established; Where the Citizens, are Devoted to the greatest good of their Fellow Men, The more humble, benighted & oppressed they are, so much the more sympathy; & earnest effort for their relief, is demanded, striving earnestly to promote the safety and prosperity of their Nation; & the Human Race.

It is a fixed Law of Nature, That any People, or Nation, whose [sturdy?] purpose, & Constant Practice, is in accordance with these principles; Must go forward Progressing; So long as Man Continues to Exist. For in Nature the Principle of Reciprocity is Great.

“The Legitimate object of all Punishment, is to prevent Crime” When any Punishment is inflicted, more than is necessary to prevent crime, it then ceases to be a Punishment. It has become a Barbarous Crime. A Sore Evil. “The Natural Object of all Government is to Protect the right, Defend the Innocent.”  When any set of Usurpers, Tribe, or Community, fail to protect the right, but furnish protection & encouragement to the Villain, by bestowing a Bounty, or Premium, upon the vile Thief, Robber , Libertine, Pirate; & Woman killing Slave Holder; as a reward, for their deeds of rascality and Barbarism; And inflict grievous cruelties upon the innocent, Shooting & Butchering those most faithful, Citizens, who have Striven Manfully, for the relief of the downtrodden &; oppressed of their Country), who fought bravely in support of the Great Principles set forth in D our Declaration of Independence, from the oppressive Rule of England.) Encouraging in various ways, by bribery & fraud, the most Fiendish acts of Barbarism (like those Perpetrated within the limits of the United States, in Florida, at Blounts Fort; in Florida & in other Territories.) under the Jurisdiction & guidance of Slaveholding Authority, & in strict accordance with Slaveholding Rules).

They have transcended their own limits, They have fairly outwitted themselves; Their Slave Code, is a shame to any Nation, Their Laws, are no Laws; they themselves are no more than a Band compilation of Base Piratical Rulers. They are a curse to themselves, a most lamentable Blot upon Society.

“In every stage of these oppressions, we have petitioned for redress, in the most humble terms, Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated Injuries, A Class of oppressors, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrannical Despotism, is unfit to rule any People. Nor have we been wanting in attention, to our Oppressors; we have warned them from time to time, of attempts (made by their headlong Blindness,) to perpetuate, extend, strengthen, & revive the dying elements of this cursed Institution. We have reminded them of our unhappy condition, and of their cruelties. We have appealed to their native justice & magnanimity, to we have conjured them by the ties of our common nature, our Brotherhood, & Common Parentage, to disavow these usurpations, which have destroyed our Kindred friendship, and endangered their safety.

“They have been Deaf to the voice of Justice & Consanguinity. We must therefore acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces their tyranny & unjust rule over us. Declaring that we will serve them no longer as slaves, Knowing that the Laborer is worthy of his hire.” We therefore, the Representatives of the Circumscribed Citizens of the United States, of America in General Congress Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the World, for the rectitude of our intentions, Do in the name, & by the authority.

Atlantic Council’s “Domestic violent extremism and the intelligence challenge”

The Atlantic Council Released a report “Domestic violent extremism and the intelligence challenge” that attributes the so-called “storming of the Capitol Building” on January 6 as a failure of intelligence and that explains why this event (which was clearly was a media show and not a true terrorist attack) serves as a justification for the creation of a Domestic Violent Extremism Unit (DVEAU) under the National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC) that reports to the Director of National Intelligence. That is to say, that American citizens will be treated like foreign terrorists from now on, and that the government is free to monitor them to whatever degree it sees fit through organizations that are not linked to the local police and are unaccountable. The government, which has become a toy of the super-rich, is free to use whatever force is appropriate against any domestic political criticism.

The author, Mitchell D. Silber, offers us new terms like “domestic violent extremism” (DVE) and “racial or ethnically motivated violence” (REMV). that will justify juicy budgets and will permit the oppression of political opposition intelligence agencies that do not have to work with local police or the judicial branch.  

This proposal for unleashing the full fury of the intelligence apparatus on American citizens is not happening in a vacuum. These steps are being taken at precisely the moment that citizens are becoming aware, through the unprecedented deaths and traumatic side-effects, that the COVID19 vaccine regime is an attempt to reduce our citizens to sickly GMOs and that it has nothing to do with concern for their wellbeing.

That is to say that the massive campaign against DVE (“domestic violent extremism”) is unleashed at precisely the moment that the collapse of governance in the United States is becoming apparent to everyone.

Reference:

“The Atlantic Council report, “Domestic Violent Extremism and the Intelligence Challenge,” by Mitchell D. Silber presents recommendations to improve the effectiveness of the post-9/11 intelligence architecture against the domestic violent-extremist threat, and reform the intelligence architecture, including a more robust collection of social media content, and the creation of a Domestic Violent Extremism Unit (DVEAU) inside the National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC), which would report to the Director of National Intelligence. The May 11, 2021 announcement by DHS Secretary Mayorkas of the restoration of a domestic terrorism branch within the Department’s Office of Intelligence & Analysis (I&A) does not change the need for a more substantial unit within NCTC.”

Declaration of the Establishment of a Provisional Government for the United States

DECLARATION OF THE ESTABLISHMENT OF A PROVISIONAL GOVERNMENT

FOR

THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

As grievous as was the blow, as terrible as is the suffering, as overwhelming and demoralizing as has been the ensuing chaos, and as discouraging as has been the spread of falsehoods, and the seduction of the educated, it is no surprise to the historian that a mighty nation like the United States could rapidly decline into moral depravity.

It is no mystery to the scholars of Babylon and Rome, of Byzantium and Athens, that great governments are brought to their knees, not by an external enemy, but rather by the substitution of superficial rituals for moral action, by a spiritual blindness that strikes down the best and the brightest.

This moral virus has infected the minds of those who should have known better, and the door was left ajar for the crafty and the cunning to surreptitiously sneak in and slip a collar around the eagle’s neck, rendering justice a pet for their idle amusement.

We have no time now for laments, standing here on the battlefield. The cruel powers have unleashed their dogs of war and they are ripping our institutions to shreds, tearing the living heart out of our government and our schools, and leaving behind our values and beliefs as rotted carcasses for the jackals to feed upon. These stealthy forces keep shifting their forms to confuse us, now conservative, now progressive, now black, now white.

What we know with certainty is that the current lull in the battle is the bait they have laid out for us. They are planning a final assault, as we stand here, dazed and confused. They want us to be absorbed in our selfish needs, stewed in the narcissism of the smartphone, lost in the cult of the self, and incapable of organizing our thoughts, or of mustering bravery, or of rising to the occasion.

Their weapons are different. Rather than a tank, they use a vaccine syringe for their first melee. They use AI and commercial media to reprogram our brains, rendering us docile beasts that chase after food, pornography and glittering images. We did not even notice how they made us dependent on them for food, for energy, for information, and now even for our very identity.   

Not a single column still stands in the temple of government that our founding fathers erected.

The beasts have carved the executive branch up into private fiefdoms, and leased them out to foreign banks. These days, those involved in governance are patted on the head and rewarded for tearing apart the edifice, for doing the bidding of the hidden masters.

The members of the Congress, regardless of their color or flavor, thrust their snouts deep in the public trough, where they devour the slop shoveled their way by the high priests of Mammon.

There are only two parties: the pimps and the whores.

The gangrene flowing through the veins of the judiciary is foul. It corrupts everything it touches, rendering judges and prosecutors unfeeling, incapable of, and unwilling to, uphold the Constitution, or to do anything that might displease their true masters.

Newspapers, magazines, universities and research institutes, corporations and foundations, are spigots that spew forth lies.

An evil spirit has possessed the public sector, rendering it a monstrosity. It slouches towards your neighborhood with a syringe in hand.

Declaration of an Provisional Government

for

The United States of America

In light of the collapse of all branches of the Federal government, and the slip of civil society into the dark abyss of decadence and narcissism, we citizens declare that an Provisional Government of the United States of America is established hereby that will serve as a midwife in the painful, but promising, rebirth of this nation.

The words of this declaration limn the direction forward for our nation and suggest the contours of our future.

The provisional government of the United States will distinguish itself from the wreckage now occupied by jackals and hyenas, by its strict adherence to our sacred Constitution and to the spirit of the law.

The provisional government will administer as much of the United States as it can, granted the tremendous challenges that we face.

The roots of our government are planted firmly in hearts of patriots, of citizens committed to liberty, justice and freedom. The provisional government will lay the foundations for an accountable government capable of addressing common concerns about the economy, society and security, hand in hand with those patriots. 

The United States has a noble tradition of democratic governance. The inspiration for our nation, however, must be traced back to the American Revolution of 1776, and to the revolution against slavery of 1860. Our political philosophy is revolutionary, and this is a moment when that tradition must be revived.  

The Declaration of Independence was the first step, a break with the British Empire. This declaration of independence is a break with the insidious empire of finance and speculation run by billionaires and their servants.


We hereby declare our independence from that empire of corruption and pillage, that empire of foreign wars and manipulative media, that empire of processed foods and needless medications forced on us for profit.


Our founding fathers declared, 

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”


We do not need any more media-savvy swiveling between the fraudulent flavors of “progressive” and “conservative,” the Pepsi and Coke of debased politics.

Before we recognize anyone as president, we must first take these six actions:  




1)

We will list the billionaires, investment banks, private equity funds and the other parasitic financial institutions that have taken control of our nation’s government and detail how they govern us illegally.

We will make all information public regarding their criminal takeover, and their criminal administration, of our country. We will bring criminal charges against the leaders, and seize their assets, regardless of how many politicians they own, or how many billions of dollars they claim to possess.


2)

We will take control of the economy, starting with money and finance (especially the Federal Reserve), and create an economy of the people, by the people and for the people.

The speculative economy will end and all fiscal policy will be drafted in close coordination with citizens using scientific data concerning the true short-term and long-term challenges facing our nation. For-profit organizations will play no role in the formulation of economic policy, nor will foreign economic concerns. Corporations whose stock is owned by foreign interests, that have their headquarters outside of the United States, will not be considered American.

3)

We will establish true journalism, starting with journalism produced by networks of patriotic citizens, that is dedicated to the pursuit of truth, and does not shy away from taboo subjects. This journalism will have no corporate sponsors and will be accompanied by social media networks and search engines that are run as regional and national cooperatives responsible to the people, that have pursuit of truth, not profit, as their paramount goal.


4)

We will establish an international committee of ethical citizens to oversee an investigation of the criminal actions by those pretending to be the United States government for the last twenty years. Base on the findings of those public investigations, we will make proposals for a revolutionary restructuring of the government so as to make the citizen again sovereign.

Only then will we be able to hold transparent and accountable elections for the President and the Congress that allow the citizens to vote on the basis of accurate information, elections from which corporate money and private wealth will be banned.

Criminal syndicates like the Democratic Party and the Republican Party, not described in the Constitution, will play no role in these open and fair elections.

We will set down national security priorities related to the threats facing our citizens. The process of assessing those security concerns will be immune from the lobbying of weapons manufactures and investment banks. We will consider crucial issues such as the collapse of biodiversity, the destruction of our climate, the concentration of wealth and the misuse of technology to destroy the minds of our citizens. We will also stop the use of automation and communications technology by corporations to destroy our livelihoods. We see the war of the rich against the citizens of the Earth as the primary security threat of our age.

6)

We will reform the United Nations so that it will become a space for true “Earth” governance that takes an internationalist perspective, and is not a tool for globalism. We will banish from the United Nations the money chargers and the plutocracy who have shredded the United Nations Charter and made its employees into their lapdogs.


 
The demands are simple, but achieving them will require vision, inspiration, tenacity and sacrifice. The rebuilding of the United States, in accord with its sacred Constitution, will be both a national and an international project.

We call out to all Americans, to all patriots who can hear our voices, and especially to those who were lucky enough to receive outstanding educations, privileged enough to obtain specialized training in the sciences, in international relations, in economics and in medicine. It must be you! Lawyers, doctors, professors, technicians, government officials, corporate executives and business owners! This is your moment of truth.

This is the moment when you must choose to stand with the downtrodden, choose to help citizens, who have not been so fortunate as you have, to distinguish truth from falsehood.

Those who possess extreme riches are not your friends. They care no more for you than they do for the homeless.

We declare today that in our streets, in our neighborhoods, in our states and in our nation, the United States of America, the super-rich and their minions shall have no dominion. The government titles or institutional trappings that they have stolen, or bought, grant them no authority over us.

If truth slips from our grasp, the powerful can easily twist our sentiments. The evil that they stir up shifts patterns, so as to blend into any scene, like a moth, like a chameleon. 

Our provisional government will adhere to the constitution, to the sacred truth and to our moral indignation. We know no other masters.
