Thanks to the corporate media and it's lies and inability to ask the kind of hard probing questions many on ATS do we won't know if the strike by bank
employees in Egypt yesterday was the result of 'low wages for rank and file employees, and high wages and favoritism for top bank officers' as the
news stories claim, or if the very people who work at the banks see the dishonest nature of the fractional reserve banking system and the financial
manipulation of the economy through it.
If you want to starve a populace into submission, it's pretty easy, close the banks, and shut down the ATM's, shudder the stores and close the
warehouses, idle the trucks, cut communication lines, and wait for supplies to run out and people to submit and comply for a hot MRE served up at an
army stand then set up to do that.
"People are like chickens, you can pluck out all their feathers and leave them defenseless and naked and they will happily scamper about at your feet
for a few grains of corn"
As the armed forces move to cement their control, we can in fact see that Egypt was a bloodless military coup and not a revolution of the people.
How the people will ultimately respond to this as they awake from the celebration of ridding themselves of a despised leader, to the nightmare of
living under Martial Law with no legislature or constitution remains to be seen.
We can see how the Armed forces are intending to impose Martial Law and attempt to starve the people into submission though.
