Realize that power and control is TOTALLY RELIANT UPON THAT WHICH IT TRIES TO CONTROL.
THE MONEY IS NOT REAL yet they need to control the illusion of its reality is and if you try to mess with that then you are by that 1933 Presidential Order, in for an unfortunate accident.
Realize that those in power are struggling with the mind boggling statistics of global governance.
This is why no human civilization has survived more than a couple of thousand years. Even with modern computers we are still up to the bottom of our eye balls in a pit of our own, 'you know what'.
What is it about HUMAN NATURE that continually compels us to empower those that are incapable of sustaining the basic requirements for the majority so the minority can continue to live in there bubble of isolational illusionary bliss until once again the majority get fed up them and want to cut off there heads.
WHY? And why haven't we learnt from our own human history.

Nice eloquent post frazzle. You have a way of discussing things peripherally so people get the message without getting into the nitty gritty. I prefer a more direct approach. Almost the same result. We don't have to agree politically to know there is something very wrong with this world today.

7 Weeks to Austerity Programs in the US...Who do you think wrote the "fiscal cliff" legislation?
Calling it the "fiscal cliff" and focusing on an arbitrary deadline is a distraction technique that forces people to look at what's really happening from the wrong perspective and therefore miss it entirely.
The deal with the banks is...."congress will pass laws implementing austerity programs to fully legitimize the process and the sheeple will be ever grateful in their sinking financial state that THE CLIFF (which the bankers created out of thin air for "the deal" through all their well known influence with our political class/oligarchy) was heroically avoided in the final hours by relentless, sleepless determination from our lawmakers to prove this great country can put aside deep fractiousness and come together when the going gets tough."

The amount of Money although being a large amount...spent on the U.S. Military is minuscule in comparison to the GNP of the United States. It is not enough to cause the economy to either dive or go up.

There's nothing wrong with pointing that capitalism is wrong and that socialism is a fairer economic system for the majority. Theoretically, I believe this is true.
Our rigged capitalism could never ever bring world peace and happiness.

Apparently there’s something I’m missing here. Who funds the capitalists and property owners if not money lenders? For that matter, who funds (capitalizes) communist governments?
You probably know British history a lot better than I do, but a whole succession of English monarchs got in over their heads (some of them literally) with lenders and goldsmiths who had capitalized them, going at least as far back as the 1200s and probably much earlier. New ships for the fleets and new crown jewels, building those grand cathedrals. Being a king or queen doesn’t come cheap, you know.
Since then and still today there is no such thing as a government or property owner in the western world that can be capitalized to any degree, or hire wage labor, without a lender lurking behind the entire enterprise. Likewise, it doesn't matter what you call a nation's form and style of governing, the lenders remain at the top of the heap and in full control of currency and commerce.
The English peasants were "autonomous" and "lived off the land"? What a hoot. www.historylearningsite.co.uk...
A lot of those peasants sold themselves as HUMAN capital to wealthy plantation owners in the new world to serve as indentured servants for a number of years just to get out of the choking English system and have a chance for a future. Out of the frying pan, into the fire.
“New European metal drills augmented production of wampum, increasing the volume and availability, while fashioning a more refined and delicate bead.61 The English in Boston had discovered additional ways to channel larger quantities of wampum into their treasury. As bead makers became more dependent on European trade, they were more vulnerable to increasingly multifarious English rules and regulations and intimidated by fear of additional aggression toward them by the English.62 For various offences of English law, a fine of wampum would be paid. In this way large sums of wampum would be gained without a reciprocal benefit for the Indians.

If you compare Socialism to the Agenda 21 so called socialism you see that it really is not socialism but Feudalism which the NWO favors . Prescott Bush , the elder George Bush's daddy tried to form a coup against Roosevelt to make the USA a Fascist Government . I don't think the NWO government will benefit the majority .
