“I have come to the conclusion that Big Brother’s subjects in George Orwell’s 1984 are better informed than Americans.
“Americans have no idea why they have been at war in the Middle East, Asia and Africa for a decade. They don’t realize that their liberties have been supplanted by a Gestapo Police State. Few understand that hard economic times are here to stay.
“On October 27, 2011, the US government announced some routine economic statistics, and the president of the European Council announced a new approach to the Greek sovereign debt crisis. The result of these funny numbers and mere words sent the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index to its largest monthly rally since 1974, erasing its 2011 yearly loss. The euro rose, putting the European currency again 40% above its initial parity with the US dollar when the euro was introduced.
“On National Public Radio a half-wit analyst declared, emphatically, that the latest US government statistics proved that the recovery was in place and that there was no danger whatsoever of a double-dip recession. And half-brain economists predicted a better tomorrow.”
It’s truely remarkable that these witless wonders and the media that heralds their wisdom have any credibility at all. Pickpockets with megaphones rule the world, it seems. But I disagree with the author’s statement that hard times are here to stay. There is a way out. Get educated about monetary reform. It’s a very simple idea really: there’s no reason for any community to pay tribute to a feudal emperor in order to conduct commerce among themselves. Extrapolate that idea from your city to your state to your nation and you’ll see how we’ve been duped for decades by the so-called federal reserve system. See www.monetary.org. Liberation is coming. The founders of this country had it right: “The Congress shall have Power … To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin” article 1 section 8.
