A reader of this site recommended I view a particular episode of the series called Money to Burn, which depicts in great detail a vital part of today’s NWO agenda (discussed later). I was in shock. So I watched other episodes in the series and this is what I saw: psychological warfare, tapping into occult forces to obtain political power, military research funded by huge corporations and mind control used on civilians and celebrities. The series pretty much summed up the entire contents of the Vigilant Citizen website. Most of the shady things are accomplished by Cobra Commander, the “bad-guy” of the show, who is a ruthless terrorist aiming for world domination. The Joes always managed to stop Cobra, however, dismantling his evil schemes in an orgy of laser-gun fire and spectacular explosions.
Watching the shows today, however, was very unsettling: Because of open-access information laws and the Internet, it is slowly coming to light that today’s shadow governments are actually carrying out most of Cobra’s plans … in real life. News about these plans come on a daily basis in mainstream news (we do our best here at Vigilant Citizen to report them in Latest News section). Did G.I. Joe contain “predictive programming”, a technique based on planting ideas and concepts in the brains of viewers in order to make them seem normal and easily accepted when they actually happen?
Larry: What should our response/attitude be to the threat of total economic collapse?
Richard: People who buy the gold are getting a metal that will not circulate for buying and selling until after the economy collapses
Larry: I'm having a tough time with this statement you've made. First of all, what do you mean by "collapses?"
Richard: The economy collapses – under the present rules which no politician is seeking too change -- when foreign and upper-loop American rich lenders determine that the US cannot make its interest payments or is on the verge of not being able to meet its obligations. At this point government debt-financing will become impossible. The US will not longer be able to fund government services through loans as they have been doing. The government will have to cut its services except for what it can pay for through taxes – except what is paid for through taxes will have to go towards payment of those creditors for interest payments on what has already been loaned. The government will tax but it will not spend.
The pubic too will feel the collapse as all business becomes unprofitable due to the complete loss of purchasing power from government. The people will not longer be able to import food and clothing on credit as we have been doing without realizing it. (When we got second mortgages on our homes and refinanced our homes with companies that sell their mortgages for securitization -- we were in fact getting loans in order to buy clothes and feed ourselves. Our equity is gone, our homes foreclosed. We can no longer get food that way. We have to provide for ourselves without the aid of government – the government is from now on nothing but a tax collector so the debt can be paid -- the IMF will dictate all policy in every area. At such a time we will no longer have Babylon to support us . And there we will be. No factories left. No small farms -- the foreigners own the agribusiness. We have no skills -- we have been in the service economy so long that we can’t produce. Those who know how to produce are in rest homes. Sons have not learned their fathers trade because their father have had no trade.
With all credit gone – with no money in circulation – all of the organization and institutions that make our modern society will stop functioning. The organic economy will die for want of blood in its veins – the complex division of labor will not be possible because there will not be purchasing power enough to sustain all of the interconnected organs of production and service. With the means of producing plenty – we will perish for want of the tokens with which we pay each other for services, And most certainly, gold will not be able to replace the credit money that is now gone.
Gold is sterile. All it really is for is buying your way out of the country after it has fallen -- as I have said before -- and for outbidding your neighbor for the morsel of food that will either keep your child or his child alive.
Gold is merely one step from barter – the final collapse of the modern economy – where you have to find someone who has something you want and who wants something that you have and don’t value as much as you do in order to make a trade. Gold – when people have confidence that it will be accepted – enables you to buy something from someone who doesn’t want any of your possessions in return. He can accept your gold and then go look for someone who does have something he wants and is likely to accept the gold for it. But you can’t rebuild a country with gold. Only credit builds a country -- and that is what has been stolen from us.
[...] Larry: Do you mean that our society is so broken that dealers cannot even trade with metals any longer?
Richard: I mean that if we reach the point where gold is the only money people will accept – that a large fraction of the American population will die because the economy that feeds us -- and even now it can’t feed all of us because we have become dependent on debt-financed imports which will no longer be forthcoming .
If gold becomes the medium then we are dead because the economy that keeps this large population alive cannot operate on that little purchasing power - it can’t operate without the flow of credit that keeps the Zeppelin in the air. In the collapse the gold will remain money -- but little people will not be able to hold on to it. It will be taken by them rather than spent by them. Only people with private armies will have gold. It will be a return to feudalism -- gold will be for the aristocracy – we will be the debt-slave serfs. But, yes, gold will still be honored -- aren’t you glad?
Larry: If we reach a point where the banks all have to close, and businesses simply cannot do business any longer, then I'm not sure even most barter commodities will be of any use. People may resort to looting and will have no interest in gold. Before such a time, most gold hoarders will have already sold their supplies, since they will perceive that they need to get the value out of the gold while there's still time. That point, I clearly see.
Richard: If we let the collapse happen people would barter to the end – except in contexts when one party is in a position to take from the other with reasonable impunity. But production will end. One again those to try to revert to a productive peasant life growing food to feed themselves and to trade for other items of need -- woolen socks and so forth -- will find that the bandits get it all -- and in come cases the bandits will let the peasants live if they pay tribute in food or slave labor -- and so the old middle ages return -- while the financial elites how are now enjoying billions in real wealth -- and ownership of factories around the world -- will be the gods of the planet. They won’t miss us and they won’t write an honest history of what we were really like and what we were really capable of when free of their depredations.
"The idea of a social credit system may derive from this resource Internet in the context of how it would deal with the human component of its creation and maintenance. In essence, the idea of a social credit economic system is based on people being allowed more bandwidth of resources relative to the reputation they build in the society as whole, this reputation digitally tracked life-long, and the public opinion of a particular activity they are engaged in. It’s sort of like having a system that Googles your name regularly to see how many people know you on-line and how positive their opinions of you and then assigns you a credit rating based on that on the premise that what you do has a certain greater than average value to the society.
