I don't see how the world has gotten itself into this situation, people losing their homes, people losing their jobs, people not even affording to eat any more.

How are we so controlled by small pieces of plastic and data, money is as real as you and I, but if you think about it ... "money" is nothing but plastic and metal.. so why is humanity doing this, how did it happen?

Humans need to remember, we control money, we invented money, money doesn't control us, money didn't invent us.

If we can make these problems then surely we can make them go away?

They were good salesmen and sold us a concept they said would benefit us while in reality it made them wealthy.
They convinced us it was real and would better our lives.
They are snakes in the grass so to speak.
They don't get that when it falls,then so do they.Money is all they see bcuz they believe the lie more then we do.
I say ignorance....or a sinister intelligence.

The world hasn't got itself into this.
It is certain individuals with to much power.
And they are inherently evil people.
What you are seeing now is there greed and selfishness.

How are we so controlled by small pieces of plastic and data, money is as real as you and I, but if you think about it ... "money" is nothing but plastic and metal.. so why is humanity doing this, how did it happen?

Money is not real, it is a virtual thing invented by these people to control everyone to there own liking.
Humanity isn't doing this, it never has been, it is specific individuals perpetrating this onto humanity.

Humans need to remember, we control money, we invented money, money doesn't control us, money didn't invent us.

The majority of people in the world do not control money, and they certainly did not invent it, it was invented and made to control them, and it was made to own them.
So you could say it did invent them, because there whole lives are controlled and consumed by it, there whole being.And that's what it was designed for.

If we can make these problems then surely we can make them go away?

We didn't make these problems, the evil individuals at the top did.

I recommend reading The Terra Papers (linked in my sig). They may seem like bad sci fi initially (they are not), they may remind you of Star Wars (but they came out years before the first movie), and they may be a bit hard to follow (the author was writing a term paper, not a book)...

But by the end, so much of where we are at makes perfect sense.

I believe this phenomenon is caused by a thing we all know as Capitalism.

The Oxford English Dictionary describes capitalism as; "an economic and political system in which a country’s trade and industry are controlled by private owners for profit, rather than by the state."

Is it really any wonder that things have gotten the way they are?

The majority of the globes advanced and leading nations are Capitalist, we follow a system that is inherintly flawed, sure not for that one in a thousand guy who strikes it lucky, but for the VAST majority we live in a time when, the sad fact is, we will likely never clear that mortgage on on our house or the debts we owe to the credit card company or to car dealer, or any number of the things we so willingly turn our hard earned money over to, simply so that we can shelter and feed our families or dress our children. (sorry if that sounds too negative, i dont even have childern im 21!)

Anyway, so now we, and by 'we' i mean the average working man or woman are paying the price, and all the while corporate fat cats sit in their Ivory towers in high backed leather chairs lighting cubans with £50 notes, or $100 bills if your from over the pond.

Friend the reason why all of this is happening is very simple.

Distraction.

The PTB have created the perfect little set of nations in the world. Nations that depend on debt for money and money for debt. Nations that depend on people who have never worked a hard day in their lives to make the though decisions that govern our world.

These people have created an illusion that is seldom noticed in the general public and seldom fought against. They need us to be worried about EVERYTHING in order for them to have the conditions required to push a OWG onto us.

The conditions require that our economy be in ruin, that we have multiple wars spanning multiple continents and a very distressed and agravated populace. They've got mostly all of those now, exept for the wars, they require a little bit more of a push for that.

Once everything is in place, it will be all out in the open, our civil liberties will be degraded and our spirits broken that most people will accept a One World Government almost immediatly without thinking of the consequences. Why might you ask? Because in theory it is a wonderful idea that could work extremely well for everybody involved. The problem arises when we have corrupt evil men running and the show and making the rules.

A revolution is coming, and if we as the people of this earth do not stand up for what we believe in, by the BILLIONS, then we will fall victim to a plan that has been in the work for generations, hell even centuries.

The major bank cartels and various governments manipulate the markets and the value of currency to bring the populace to their knees. One of the founders of the economic system we have today once said:

"Give me control of a nation's money and I care not who makes the laws"

~Mayer Amschel Rothschild

And there is nothing closer to the truth in today's society.

~Keeper

Question: Who owns the Federal Reserve Banks?

Answer: The Federal Reserve Banks of each region are owned by (issue their stock exclusively to) the member banks of that same region. The member banks are privately owned corporations. Thus the Federal Reserve Banks are privately owned. This is a matter of law and anyone may read the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 for themselves (see below).

Question: Why then do some people deny that the Federal Reserve Banks are owned by private corporations?

Answer: Three groups of people deny this fact, for differing reasons:

1. The first group consists of the private owners of the Federal Reserve Banks, and their shills. It is obviously not in their interest that the American people realize that private bankers own what most people regard as a part of the public treasury and government. The people would doubtless not like it if they knew that the stockholders of the Federal Reserve Banks receive 6% interest (raised higher in the past) per year on their stock ownership, risk free. The people would be legitimately concerned to know that the member bank stockholders elect six of the nine members (i.e., 2/3rds) of the Boards of the reserve banks of their regions. Rather than regulating or controlling the activities of private banks in their regions, the opposite is the case.
2. The second group consists of those persons who, in their ignorance, have believed the propaganda of the Federal Reserve Banks, which sometimes issue ambiguous, doublespeak statements attempting to obfuscate their private bank ownership. Here is a typical example from the NY Fed website, quite easily seen through: “Although they are set up like private corporations and member banks hold their stock, the Federal Reserve Banks owe their existence to an act of Congress and have a mandate to serve the public. Therefore, they are not really "private" companies, but rather are "owned" by the citizens of the United States…Member banks do, however, receive a fixed 6 percent dividend annually on their stock and elect six of the nine members of the Reserve Bank's of their region… the Reserve Banks issue shares of stock to member banks.”
3. The third group consists of those people who consider that because the Chairman of the Federal Reserve Board of Governors is appointed by the President and approved by the Senate that the Fed is firmly under government control and that this is sufficiently equivalent to ownership to put them at ease (never mind the outright private bank control of the 12 regional Federal Reserve Banks). Let’s hear how the Fed itself regards such indirect “government control” (again from the NY Fed website): The Federal Reserve System is not "owned" by anyone and is not a private, profit-making institution. Instead, it is an independent entity within the government, having both public purposes and private aspects.

If you are a little uncomfortable with “your” Fed having “private aspects,” you are not alone. Notice also the contradiction with the other NY Fed quote above, which claims the citizens of the US own the Fed – here it claims no one owns it (same website). The truth and the law is that the member banks own and control all 12 Federal Reserve Banks. Another interesting doublespeak quote from the NY Fed website: Therefore, the Federal Reserve can be more accurately described as "independent within the government.” A little independence is a good thing, unless that independence is in reality virtually total and the entity involved controls the nation’s money and economy. Think about it: if the Fed is independent from the government that created it, then who controls it – it has no brain of its own – it is not a person. If it is not controlled by our government, then by whom?

Totally agree with you Tenthpower! it all sounds spookily, as though history is reapeating itself except on a global scale? Take a look at Russian state during the 1920s, if the country had not been in such a poor state then maybe Lenin (and Communism for that matter) might not have so easily swooped in to take control.
