The Ultimate Struggle: Big Banking & Business, Vs Gov’t of the People.
Ready or not, its coming.
The ultimate human struggle on the material level of this planet will be between the people and the banks. Put another way, it will be between a bottom-up democracy and some form of top-down despotic control, financial or otherwise.
Throughout mankind’s history some form of force or power has been used for the strong, violent and ruthless to dominate or control the meek, peaceful or virtuous. Control of land, resources and forced labor have been common methods down through time. Direct force or military power as a primary means of controlling the populace has now been largely replaced by the rule of law. However, the laws themselves can be instruments of domination and control when written in ways that serve those who hold and wield power, even subtle forms of power. Media power is one key to control public opinion. Educational power is another key means of control. Religious power is one of the subtlest forms of control over the masses. Economic power is another. The power of money in a capitalist society cannot be disputed. One generally needs it for shelter, food and the other most basic necessities of life.
It is the power of money that has escaped from democratic control. And it is the power of money that is growing exponentially stronger every day. It may already be too late to contain or control it, without triggering an apocalypse. That remains to be seen. Many conventional scenarios are still possible, and although most of them are ugly, there remain a few innovative civilized and peaceful resolutions.
The scenario I’d most like to see is the peaceful grassroots populous clamor for money and banking legislation. If we had fair and unbiased mainstream news and information media it might be possible. However we don’t. The banks, or the corporations they own or control own nearly all the media. So they speak with a similar corporate voice and purpose, and it is not usually the voice of the people. The end result is that what we hear from the MSM is spin and propaganda all slanted toward the corporate bankers profit perspective.
To make matters worse, the power of the financial institutions is such that they can stop the flow of money in most nations almost at the snap of their fingers, and can restart it just as quickly. They control the flow of credit as well, even credit our US government needs in order to conduct its business or pay its bills. “How can this be?” you might well ask. Isn’t our government sovereign? Can’t sovereign governments just issue their own money sufficient to meet their economic needs? Well, yes and no is the clear answer – yes they should be, but in fact are not. So maybe the answer isn’t so clear. Maybe the situation has been deliberately confused and hidden from our plain sight. Unless you already know this strange story, (and very few do) let me just say there are a few videos and books that will explain the whole sordid story to anyone who will take the time to watch or read them.

This current worldwide economic meltdown is just the first visible tip of the coming battle between the people and the banks. We are going to have to either accept a future of economic servitude for our people, or our people are going to take back our government, and our financial sovereignty. Financial and monetary sovereignty ultimate resides with the voting citizen in a democracy.
So, can we the people win this struggle for economic and financial independence? Can we establish a real political democracy that is based on economic democracy? It’s going to be tough. Here is a brief explanation why. [Continue reading by using link]
