By now, some of us accept the fact that we are 100% animal of the ape family. For those who do, it becomes obvious that due to our gregarious nature we want to identify with our ethnic group, live in it, and be led by it, taking care not to stick out to the point of being ostracized by it. Because we’re intelligent, we do everything we can to be different while doing everything we possibly can to live as the group dictates. In a word, we want to be told what to wear, what to eat, what to do and where to go, while doing everything we can to prove we’re smart and independent. A good example is when we do our darndest to be first to do what the fashion industry and the media say is a cool thing to do. If we looked at a picture of the crowd on 5th avenue in 1929, and one from the same angle in 2019, we could easily identify the first one as having been taken in 1929, and the second in 2019. The people in both pictures are all dressed in a similar fashion, and yet we can see that they are all dressed differently. It shows that we want to be like everybody else while doing our best to look different. During those same time frames, the bonobos in Congo didn’t change one iota. By looking at pictures of bonobos taken in those two time periods we can’t tell if it’s 1929 or 2019, only the materials used to make the actual photo can help us date the picture. We can easily see how intelligence affects our genetic make-up. Not surprisingly, democracy is founded on that human foible where we want to do something before everybody else and be like everybody else while being totally disposed to go in debt in order to do so. That’s why credit and democracy are inseparable
The story of democracy is a story of finance. Today’s misguided intelligentsia even call the financial power that rules democracies, ‘deep state’. However, if we understand what democracy really is, we’ll understand that the ultimate financial power we are ruled by is the greatest thing that ever happened to us. In 1688, the East India Company shareholders sent William and Mary to London to head a constitutional monarchy. Without his army hardly firing a shot, William marched on London where he was welcomed with open arms by the Immortal Seven. The shareholders financed the creation of a new parliament the following year, and since Parliament had no revenue to speak of, and since the country was being forced to wage war against France, deficit financing became a must. The East India Company owners waiting in the wings were quick to subscribe to the English debt while insisting that they be thereafter the sole lenders and the only body to have the right to print and coin money for the realm. The shareholders then created a company known as the Bank of England, and though it has since been ostensibly nationalized, it continues to be a private company in charge of the English monetary system. No matter what projects the representatives of the people end up undertaking, the bankers have the last word as to what is to be financed. Convinced of being in control while people are being totally controlled is democracy as we know it. Bankers never tell the people what to do, they just decide what will be done by supplying or withholding credit. After the B of E was taken-over by the B of NA in 1810, is when the City in London became the ‘deep state’, or what I prefer calling, Big Brother. Later, in 1944, in Bretton Woods, Big Brother, had all the countries of the world accept the US dollar as their reserve currency. That meant that all the central banks of the world were locked in to the US currency which in turn was backed by the mountains of gold largely kept in the City. The Bretton Woods agreement was a world game changer, and since then, world population went from 2 to 8 billion. The majority of humans today live a life of plenty that hardly anyone could have imagined at the turn of the 20th century. If we believe that Big Brother is responsible for this, that is, if we like running water, water treatment plants, housing, cars and planes, super markets, internet and smartphones, then we should consider ourselves very lucky to have Big Brother looking after us.
Most people think that the richest men in the world are people like Bill Gates, and somehow, they think these men are powerful. Maybe we should reflect on the meaning of power, and the best way to do that is to talk about bank notes. The first US paper dollars were issued by the First Bank of the United States in 1791. They were crude handwritten bank notes for the most part, and there were no more than millions of dollars’ worth issued at that time. A bank note is a loan made to countries, businesses and individuals who want to build bridges, cars or houses and who agree to pay interest.
In 1791, Big Brother printed dollars in the range of millions, in 1810, it was printing pounds and dollars in the billions, and in 1944, it was printing trillions of dollars worth, for they were not only printing the nominal US dollar but all the currencies that were locked in to it. Today, it is printing in the quadrillions of dollars, and it’s to the point the paper notes have had to morph into electronic transfers. If interest rates were around 6% in 1791 but merely 1% today, does that mean Big Brother has less control in the 21st century? The amount of interest paid on 100 million dollars in 1791 would have been 6 million dollars. But how much does 1% of interest paid on thousands of quadrillions of dollars represent? It’s so huge that we can’t talk in terms of wealth any more, we are forced to use the term power. Bill Gates might be the wealthiest man in the world, but how does that compare to the financial power wielded by Big Brother who is the sole lender to all the nations of the world and who makes 1% on thousands of quadrillions of dollars? No matter, that’s power, and we are lucky to be in the hands of Big Brother.
Communications and censorship have been inseparable ever since the Gutenberg Press started rolling in 1452. Because we are mean, nasty, selfish, envious, conniving and greedy, we can’t understand someone who isn’t, and we think the central bankers are the most despicable breed in the world just like Andrew Jackson did when he was president. Altruism and power on the part of Big Brother is like that of the alpha male in the ape world, and we will never believe that such behavior is possible in our world because we judge others as we do ourselves. We don’t even know that Mayer Amschel Rothschild existed, let alone know that he was the greatest man who ever lived. He succeeded in giving us the great world of credit because he lived in complete anonymity, and it had to be that way or it never would have worked.
The three Gorgon sisters have no choice but to support and even promote concepts like the ‘deep state’, for it keeps us guessing about the alleged ‘overpowering devilish society’ that controls us. If we want to really succeed in this magnificent world created by Mayer, we have to know that we are hardwired to the three Gorgon Sisters. If we knew how that indoctrination sorority works and why, we could ignore them. Unfortunately, most of us can’t possibly ignore them any more than we can our smartphone when it’s ringing.
The Gorgon sisters were created in mid 19th century with the advent of the telegraph. Havas was the first agency to work for Emperor Napoleon III, followed by Reuters in the UK and AP in the USA. When the western world was being ruled by the Christian Church, from 325 CE to 1789 CE, the Holy See burned people and books and scared people using the threat of excommunication in order to maintain relative order. Starting in 1837, the telegraph became the ultimate indoctrination machine in that anybody could say anything they believed in, for whatever they said could easily be countered by the ‘suits’ or ‘beneficiaries of the new economic regime’ who in turn fed all the newspapers of the world through the three Gorgon Sisters, and that has never changed.
However, because we have become smombies, because we are affected by the FOMO syndrome (fear of missing out), because we suffer from greed and envy more than ever, because we are constantly being made wary by a thousand and one events around the world streamed live into our homes, a control technique used by the Gorgon Sisters, we have no choice but to cut the cord if we want to achieve a certain level of well-being. We don’t have to become like the citizens described in George Orwell’s ‘1984’. We can instead make a point of knowing how democracy was created and what makes us happy. If we come to realize that we live in the best of all possible worlds and understand that we are not genetically programmed for such a world, we’ll know that pursuing nurturing and creative lifestyles should be our main goal and that it’s very easy to achieve in this great democracy.
