Realistically, when the SHTF the first casualties will be the masses in the streets. Propaganda will spill across the airways, blaming free media and
information for the rioting, looting, and killings being seen on the streets, it will be labeled as dangerous, a hiatus will be placed on all networks
and information exchanges, and the internet as we know it will be done.
Yes, that seems to be a likely scenario.
However, even if there is no conspiracy to end the internet -- if the SHTF, realistically, that's what the good guys would do to calm things down.
>> I feel like we are on borrowed time MAINLY, because of the Banksters. This Derivatives blow up, is just like a larger scale version of the
Auctioner's gambit. If you want an item to become valuable, you have someone bid it up like crazy. That someone actually comes from another auction
house. Then they bid it out to some other auction house. You also do the same and return the favor.
From the outside, someone is going to see a piece of artwork gain 100% in value. Then it sells again for maybe 50% more. Sure, the painting costs a
lot -- thinks the investor, not really knowing how to value art, but then that person makes big bucks every time it is sold again. The outside
investor buys the painting, and then finds that there are no buyers for their set price when they put it up for auction. There might be another
outside buyer who buys it (hopefully), but not for the 50% markup the investor expected.
The Credit Default Swaps, were a pure fraud it appears by banks and mortgage companies. They bundled mortgages with insurance to secure the
"unlikely" event of default (4%), and did some magic by calling them some new financial type of instrument, and then another bank takes them as
deposit. All these banks get to loan out 10 times what they take in -- and more than that, after some BushCo agents let them bypass SEC rules. So
anyway, all this money gets set out as loans again, to get more money, and those are bundled and become assets at another bank -- that's as near as I
can figure it, though I'm not a pro in this regard.
It might have been pure greed that made otherwise smart people stupid -- because sitting back, any non-nitwit could figure out what would happen after
you keep making money on fantasy money, with no real borrowing going on and the only oversight is a bookie.
But to me, the Powers That Be -- mainly, the international bankers and their perhaps their relations in all the militaries, were suckering in all the
newly wealthy in the world -- the ones who stood back amazed at all the money that was being made in these new markets. The suckered them in.
At the end of 2008, all these rich people are told; "Unless you play ball with us, you are going bankrupt." Because at over a Quadrillion dollars --
there is more money than the entire world makes in ten years wrapped up in this scam.
So if Obama, or anyone else, makes a move on these banksters, they can crash the whole system....
... the danger comes, when something spirals out of control. It's really hard to know WHAT wealth is right now -- because it's all based on fantasy
money and depends on what the PTB says it is. They have ultimate power -- but the problem is, the cycle of debt and profits has reached its peak.
There really isn't much more that can be stolen, without letting everybody in on the fact that we are all working for tokens. Does it do any good to
turn American workers into sweat shop denizens and lock the exit doors? The only support the banks had turning the third world into serfs was the
lifestyle this afforded the 1st world.
They can feed on us, or feed on each other -- but they cannot tolerate "not getting wealthier" -- how can our economic system keep score? It's
always been an assumption that Globalism would have more profits and more resources each and every year.
The paradigm itself, that we derive the status quo on is in jeopardy. So once enough people are out of work or are hungry or are fed up -- despite the
manipulations of World Banks. What happens then?
>> The internet is the least of our problems. Any barriers erected will mean that people start creating their own networks -- and the PTB doesn't get
to spy on those. That's what is probably keeping this *FREE* -- the internet(s), that if they play their hand too much, they might lose this great
opportunity to track who the problem children are. They must be worried however, as the Rockefellers and their like, become better known to more and
more people. As the main stream media crumbles -- so too will their Bread and Circuses that keep us distracted.
There must come a point where it is concluded that the usefulness of tracking people, is outweighed by the downside of people getting educated. If
EVERYBODY is saying things you don't want them to know -- then spying on them becomes pretty pointless, you are only fooling yourself.
This might be an inevitable process of evolution that the PTB cannot engineer around. Or they may be adding some new food additives and get it under
control. Who knows, really.
