What he always proposes is not realistic and essentially would result in total collapse + opportunity to rebuild from the ashes.

Actually, I've posted the details of the Business Plot on my of my threads. I didn't bring it up here, because I believe that most of the members on this thread are familiar with it. Your post though, is a great summary of the lead-up to that point in history, and as I've stated many times before, I believe we could have a coup of some sort, if things continue the way they are....ProfEmeritus
The situation today is VERY similar to that of the 1930's, in fact, eerily so....ProfEmeritus
“In a sweeping move that has garnered surprisingly little attention this week the United States and the European Union have signed up to a new transatlantic economic partnership that will see regulatory standards “harmonized” and will lay the basis for a merging of the US and EU into one single market, a huge step on the path to a new globalized world order.” The BBC reported (news.bbc.co.uk...) from the Summit in Washington on Monday: stopspp.com...

I guess whether we have a peaceful takeover or a hostile takeover depends on how asleep the general population is.
ZZZZZZZZZ..... wha..... huh? the country's been hijacked????? Ohhh..... ok, nothing to see here, back to sleep now...... ZZZZZZZZ........
What Im shocked by is that people still think you need yrs of higher education in financial matters to understand what is trully happening to our economy. Now for some of the real technical stuff, yeah maybe. But my education only went as far as High School and I suck at math and I understand this stuff perfectly well.
We've become a country of excess where people use credit to keep up with the Joneses. Where saving towards something has been replaced by instant gratification.
Objective number two [of the Federal Reserve] was to reverse the trend of what is called private capital formation. That's banker language for a process in which an individual or a corporation uses their own savings to pay for something instead of going to the bank and borrowing it, if you can imagine that happening. It was happening at the turn of the century. The trend was that businesses in particular were withholding some of their dividends each quarter and putting that money into a sinking fund and then as the money accumulated or as the capital formed, then they finally had enough that they could use their own money to build that new factory or to launch a research & development project or whatever instead of going to the banks and borrowing for it. The banks were very concerned over this trend because this is their life-blood. Loaning money is what they do so how do you loan money when people don't want to borrow it? The answer they knew, and they talked a lot about this, was to lower interest rates, get those rates down so that they were so attractive that people would be crazy not to come to the banks and borrow money at those good interest rates. www.bigeye.com...
"I was wrongly diagnosed as delusional by the psychiatric staff of Ward 7 at Northland Base Hospital in Whangarei and held against my will for 11 days in mid-2006, because I maintained the attacks of 9/11 were orchestrated by criminal elements inside the US Administration"

This happens far more often than most people imagine. I am an outpatient therapist at a community mental health clinic, and believe me, I’ve witnessed more involuntary commitments than I can count simply because a patient verbalized “delusions” such as “9/11 was an inside job,” mentioned FEMA camps, or discussed health concerns related to chemtrails, fluoridated water or genetically modified foods. If my patients mentioned these things, I have to be extremely careful how I document my treatment notes to avoid a trip to the local funny farm. Sadly though, most of my patients also see staff psychiatrists for their meds. Should any of them mention such things, they are immediately tagged with an incorrect and lifelong diagnosis, typically paranoid schizophrenic or delusional disorder NOS, and more often than not, considered actively psychotic and thus hospitalized against their will. Lesson: be careful what you say to your shrink, or even to your family physician.
Or another way to look at it. In 1959 the price of gold was $35.25/ oz, minimum wage is.$1.00 or 0.028 oz of gold per hour In 1976 the price of gold was $124.74/ oz, minimum wage is.$2.30 or.0.0184 oz/hr In 2008 the price of gold was 880.30/ oz minimum wage is.$5.85 or 0.0067 oz/hr
Here is a much more simplistic way to look at it: The RICH get richer, and the POOR get poorer. That age old adage was never truer.
....then get them to feel SOME good that this lower standard of living can be seen as a sacrifice that also helps Heal the earth's awful global warming and the "club" laughs all the way to the bank...GENIUS
Boy isn't that the truth. I have been trying to get what is happenning through the thick head of a PhD college professor. He actually told me he has discussed the situation with his twelve year old and she agrees the lower standard of living is wonderful.... She also wants Daddy to buy her a horse. GO Figure!
