Dropout Nation: The Lust For Profit 1

Dropout Nation

The lust for profit over life has debased human morality to a point nearly beyond recovery. It is and has been the primary cause of oppression, poverty, war and revolution throughout history. In my opinion, it has caused more conflict, suffering and death than even religion, though distinctions between state and church have at times been indistinguishable, each using the other when it seemed expedient. Since both exist for the purpose of controlling and subjugating populations, both share the burden of blame and guilt.

The source of all this malevolence, since the concept of representative currency was born, has always been those who seek to privatize and control economies in order to completely dominate the people, nations and societies of the entire world. These money masters have hidden behind all manner of governance and social structure. They have owned kings, emperors, presidents, dictators and heads of state of every description. They have been called monarchists, socialists, communists, royalists and claimed allegiance to every nation, religion and social order imaginable. It is only a matter of chance and the times we live in that they are today called free market capitalists.

They are a cabal of international bankers that has, at the beginning of the new millennium, nearly achieved the goal their cult has always sought; absolute control of the total, global economy. Whatever their names, no matter the titles or designations they are given or give themselves, they are still the same money changers that were allegedly driven out of Herod's temple by a man named Jesus. Whether that event is fact or myth, the money changers are very real and go back at least to ancient egypt. ...

As long as history has been recorded, a theme has recurred that has evidently failed to impress itself upon the masses of humanity. In every instance, in every society, civilization or empire, when the great bulk of wealth has become concentrated into the hands of the smallest segment of the population, utter ruin has followed as surely as is life by death. This is not a lesson taught in the typical history course. This scenario or one very much like it has been repeated many times throughout history. It is being reenacted once again in modern amerika and thereby spread to other nations around the world. Our educators have failed to impress the significance of this lesson upon our generations so we continue to suffer under the yoke of usury. ...

Conversely, when a true public system, governed by law, not private interests, is engaged, the resultant economy, with a more equitable distribution of wealth, generally results in greater prosperity for everyone. Some may have more than others but none are left wanting. The smaller the gap in riches, the more civil the society. The relative wealth of a few does not lead to the oppression and enslavement of the many. ...

It is only when the issuance and control of currency is ceded to the private sector and interest is charged for its use, that the ills of inflation, deflation and the profit motive begin to fracture a society. From the first day that an economy is privatized, all wealth begins an inexorable upward transfer into the hands of ever fewer individuals.

Once money is privatized and commodified it can no longer be considered true fiat currency. It has been moved outside the sphere of legal control. A fiat is a matter of law, not an instrument of private enterprise or a creation of nature.

Because it would show that privately controlled economies are nothing more than fraudulent ponzi schemes and highly detrimental to any society, the history of money and the truth of its manipulation has been largely ignored and frequently intentionally obscured by those fallaciously calling themselves economists. In some cases, even numismatists, whose business it is to study the history of money, have contributed to the obfuscation. Those who have become indoctrinated to the theoretical reasoning of the likes of Adam Smith and the Austrian School refuse to accept the facts on the ground and continue to insist that all currency must also be a commodity. ...

Note: excellent historical context/review/comments continue in article ...

... The purpose, the only purpose, of free market globalization is to assist the international banking cartel in the accumulation and concentration of all wealth into the hands of the smallest possible number of people. There is no interest in meeting human needs. Taken to its logical extreme the end result would be all wealth, down to the last square inch of the planet being the “private property” of a single individual. ...
