65-KNOW YOUR BULLY

Knowing who and what you are is knowing your bully. If we don’t introduce the child to Darwinism and teach him the origins of life and the laws of natural selection, there is no hope of taking away the bully’s power. The child has to know that he is 100% animal of the ape family like his parents and that he is forced to live by the dictates of his ANS just like all animals on earth. If he understands how wild animals behave in the natural selection world around him, and knows that humans behave just like that, though in more sophisticated ways since they broke the time barrier, he’ll be able to put two and two together. He’ll realize that he is genetically programmed like an ape in spite of the fact that he uses a knife and fork when he eats. He may even deduce, that being intelligent allows humans to be much more inventive in acting out all the dastardly tendencies in the wild ape’s inventory.

Fighting tooth and nail in order to become an alpha is genetically sound in the animal kingdom, but when we broke the time barrier and became intelligent some three million years ago, we ceased being subjected to the laws of natural selection. So, genetically, we are meant to become bullies, but because we are intelligent, bullying has become a negative social force. Intelligence being the ability to tie past experiences with future experiences while making sense of the present, most of us realize that bullying is counterproductive to the group.

The alpha male of yesteryear was altruistic, for his only purpose was to ensure the quality of the genetic stock within the group while protecting the members of the group. Today, the only altruistic alpha left in the world of humans sits at the head of the dynasty of bankers in the City in London. Those prancing around us pretending to be alphas are bullies, mean and nasty individuals who are bent on pursuing their own agenda. We left the 24/7 world of survival a long time ago, but we still live by the archaic laws of survival of the fittest. And because we have less and less to do, and because we are genuine apes that need to be told what to do in spite of the fact that we do everything in our power to prove otherwise, it’s a situation that fosters the proliferation of pseudo alphas, or bullies. The laws of survival of the fittest or natural selection no longer apply to us, yet we still live by them, and that is what is killing us in the world of leisure that we find ourselves in. Getting ass, kicking ass and making money are the bullies’ main preoccupations, and we all admire those who succeed. Why aren’t we interested in human values, self-fulfillment and happiness? We could say that it’s because self-fulfillment is like a vegetable garden, we all think it’s a great idea and even dream about its benefits, but never pursue the idea of working a garden because it doesn’t pay and it’s too much work.

Nonetheless, we can be sure that the financial power sitting in the City is interested in maintaining the great market economies of the world that it created, while doing everything it can to improve them. We have the World Bank, UNESCO, World Heritage, Green Peace, WWF, and all the UN agencies and private institutions like National Geographic and the Smithsonian, along with the world bank that indirectly finances thousands of NGO’s and thousands of university labs and research centers. The Pacific garbage patches will be cleaned up, wildlife will survive as the numerous UNESCO protected parks are joined by corridors in Africa as well as North America, we will have abundant clean energy by way of fusion, hydrogen and solar, we will grow all the food we need, and all this because the City dynasty of bankers are intent on protecting and improving the global village they created. Unfortunately, because we are being socially empowered while needing to be told what to do every step of the way, we have become a fragile screwed-up specie. The only way Big Brother has of dealing with this dichotomy festering in all of us is to make ever greater use of the crop mentioned earlier, that is, by imposing more controls and restrictions regarding our security and safety.

However, because Big Brother created the world of leisure and knows we live a life that we are not genetically programmed for, he creates ways to occupy our leisure time. Right up until the start of the 20th century, people were busy just plain surviving 24/7, as many in Africa, Latin America, Asia and Russia still do today. Survival, religion and politics kept the masses busy for the longest time, but when the three Gorgon Sisters were created in mid 19th century, and especially when steam and electricity became widespread at the end of that century, leisure time started increasing. After two world wars that kept us more than busy, after the signing of the Bretton Woods agreement in 1944, and especially after the new market economies started roaring, providing us jobs in the process, more ways had to be developed to keep the populations busy. At first, jobs encouraged people to shop and accumulate material things, and that was a very attractive way of spending time, but today, it’s proving to be counterproductive in fulfillment terms. That’s why Big Brother is now bent on developing other ways to help us spend our leisure time. Making money, consuming and watching television got us through most of the 20th century, but we are now hard-wired to the Gorgon Sisters through our smartphones, which is a much more efficient way of occupying our idle moments. And since sports, travel, and rallies and concerts of all kinds are saner ways to occupy the masses, that is what is being financed today at breakneck speed, for it allows the whole world to join in as participant or spectator. The hundreds of world and international competitions, starting with the Olympics, winter, summer and para, involving hundreds of sports, with new ones being developed everyday, seen worldwide on television or our smartphones, along with the thousands of rallies and concerts, are proof that sports, entertainment and politics are replacing religion as the opium of the people. In the last hundred years, sports participation and viewing has increased exponentially and there is no slow-down in sight, thanks to the research and development money from Big Brother in the City.

However, because we live in this great world of leisure, we often forget that we are genetically programmed to be violent, and that that violence has to be somehow released. During millions of years, we were forced to kill wild animals for food and were often killed in the process, and we had to get through deadly winters and summer droughts waiting for food. The memories of those violent ways are genetically imprinted in us. Thankfully, we started being less violent around 20k years ago when we settled down and grew food, and more so 5k years ago when writing and religion were created. But we only started living in a leisurely fashion in early 20th century when electricity was made available to the masses. Though ever more political rallies, sports events, concerts and travel are all good ways to release the tension that builds up in us, such activities should be accompanied by an educational system that addresses who and what we are, and how and why we behave the way we do. We have to face the fact that we are intelligent apes, and that we act exactly like apes. We have to stop using the god concept that was created in 325 CE as a crutch to make us forget our apeness.

Because we come from a violent past, and because the archaic laws of natural selection still incite us to follow the laws of survival of the fittest, it makes us all potential bullies when given a chance. Give someone a badge, a uniform, a title, a rank, wealth or a high salary, and you can make him do just about anything you want. Napoleon was the first bright example, then there were the Hitler’s, the Stalin’s, the Mao’s, and the Tojo’s, while today it’s clowns like Trump, Putin and Johnson that supposedly guide us. Before 1944, the City used henchmen to bulldoze the old regimes of the world, today, they use clowns to entertain us.

Learning Darwinism is learning humility. Knowledge is not weakness, it is strength. Self-empowerment is based on strength and humility, while societal empowerment is based on arrogance and weakness. We have no choice but to use societal empowerment forces to reclaim self-empowerment if we want to feel fulfilled. The key to doing this lies in reclaiming our values, the same values that apply to all living things. If, in our daily lives, we stress immediate gratification and nurture greed to the detriment of family life and creative activities, it’s like shopping for food in a supermarket instead of growing it. Like all of universe we follow the path of least resistance, and as humans living in a world of plenty chasing the ‘mores’ of the world, we are very much like a great beautiful car with the gas gauge pointing to empty.

 

60-FACING SOCIETY

At 21 years of age, as planned, our imaginary young couple has decided to commit to marriage and have children. At this time, they are both in the final year of their respective bachelor’s degree. She has been accepted at a veterinary school, and he is to start his internship with a local architectural firm the following year.

Since the architectural firm and the veterinary school happen to be in the city where their parents live, and since all four parents are anxious to have grandchildren, they will go ahead and have their first child in the summer months prior to her entering veterinary school. With so many available and willing babysitters, having her first child at that time will not interfere with her studies.

Their first child turned out to be a boy, and the next few years were pure bliss as they got more involved in their individual fields of study and worked at making the third member of the family team feel welcome. Four years later, they had a girl. It was also the time to get the boy ready to face the world, that is to enter primary school.

They soon realized how awesome a challenge it was to have a child integrate the outside world. The traditional Judeo-Christian education system was not in sync with what he was being taught at home, and it had to be countered in three main areas: religion, evolution and reproduction. After meeting with the school principal, they were relieved to find that he did not believe in nor promote creationism. Having raised him to be confident in what he believes, the child will be able to handle the disturbing effects of religious thought on his own, in the classroom and the schoolyard.

The 5-year-old has been introduced to Charles Darwin’s laws of natural selection and knows that all living things on earth have evolved from a common source of life and that humans belong to the ape family. He knows that all living things like trees, fish, birds, and bears, and natural inanimate things like prairies, mountains and rivers are interconnected, and if all thrive, people thrive. He also knows that because humans are the only intelligent beings, they have the responsibility of protecting all the other living things along with their habitats.

He knows that when humans broke the time barrier and became intelligent a very long time ago, they became aware of their mortality and were overcome with fear. In trying to appease the spirits and the natural forces that were now perceived as supernatural threats, they invoked them in thousands of ways. When loved ones died, in order to show respect and make sure the spirit of the deceased was given time to leave the body and reach the world of spirits safely, they were interred. Some 5000 years ago, religious myths started being put to paper, and the child realizes that it was an effective way to deal with the fears relating to death and the after world. Judaism was the first religion to be set to paper, followed by the eastern religions, but it was Christianity created in 325 CE that gave us the world we find ourselves in today, notwithstanding the fact that Islam, created several centuries later, does play an important role in the world, especially in the Middle East.

The child knows that though Judaism, Christianity and Islam all lay claim to one God, each group has a different prophet, namely Abraham, Jesus-Christ and Mohammed, to interpret His will. And because each group thinks his prophet knows best and is willing to fight the others to prove it, the boy has been told that it’s wise not to join these groups, and instead, to live at peace with the spirits of the natural world by respecting and protecting their habitats. Like his parents, he has a deep respect for Mother Nature, the giver of life, and like them, he believes that all matter is part of a whole. Like his parents he believes there is no hard and fast distinction between the spiritual and physical world, and that ‘soul’ is not limited to humans. All living things, all the mountains and rivers, all the seasons and forests, and all the natural entities have essence, and their presence affects our lives as we affect theirs.

Like his parents, he will speak softly and carry a big stick when challenged on troublesome religious topics. He’ll never refute one’s belief in a creator or a god, but if asked, he will clearly state that he believes that Mother Nature is all powerful, and though he doesn’t understand that force, he can easily observe it and respect it. He will never put down those who speak to their god through prayer, and he will not take sides regarding the different prophets. That should keep him out of trouble.

He has been told time and time again by both parents that he was dearly wanted, that he is loved and that he is an indispensable part of the family. He has been told that though he may not know as many things as his parents, he is surely as intelligent as they are, and perhaps more so. His parents will always guide him when making life choices, but he’s the one who has to make the final decision. His parents will support him unconditionally, and if ever he needs their help, they’ll defend him no matter what. If they disagree with the path he follows or the decisions he makes, they will clearly tell him why and refrain from passing judgment. They want to have him around for a very long time, and later, when he decides to create his own family, they want him to do what he loves doing for a living and to have a loving intimate partner with whom to share his life. If he succeeds, it will make them happy, especially if he has children and doesn’t live far away.

52-THE PILL

 

Self empowerment is the greatest feeling one can experience. As a child, when I saw my uncle admiring his field of golden wheat swaying in the sun before bringing in the crop, I saw a fulfilled man. In winter, when, in the warm presence of his expanding family, he sat around the dinner table where the products of his farm were being served, he was a happy man. Those feelings have nothing to do with societal empowerment. Societal empowerment has turned out to be very detrimental to human development in that it supplanted self empowerment. The conundrum is that while societal empowerment should enhance self empowerment, it does just the opposite.

When the world of credit got rolling in early 20th century, women were the first victims of societal empowerment. Because they had always been subjected to male domination, they were understandably overwhelmed by the world of credit and the power it offered them. Unfortunately, not knowing what to do, they decided to get emancipated through the man. In order to get social status, it was deemed preferable to seduce a pseudo alpha male rather than look for a genuine life partner with whom to build and share a family life. Thus, the badge of femininity became the symbol of the sexual revolution that we’re still experiencing today, and it does not favor parity. What follows is an attempt at explaining the mess brought on by societal empowerment.

In early 20th century, people moved to the cities in tandem with the arrival of electricity, tap water, toilets and jobs. It was the beginning of tangible societal empowerment. In 1913, the bankers in the City created the US Federal Reserve Board, which made the dollar an international currency, and America, the biggest economy on earth. With this great market economy firmly in hand, the City could now proceed with its globalization agenda. It was time to bulldoze the Ancien Regime countries of the world, including those of the Holy Roman Empire in Europe, Tsarist Russia, the Ottoman Empire, Japan and China. Although the two World Wars that followed created havoc in the existing market economies, the result was mostly positive for the women in that they finally got good paying jobs. After WWII, because America was now considered the Eldorado of the world, everybody wanted to go there in order to create wealth, and a lot was created in a very short period of time.

People experienced greater comforts and long-term prospects looked good. However, as societal empowerment took root, it was the males who got the diplomas, the managerial responsibilities, and the investing and inventing opportunities. Males were cast in the ‘father knows best’ role, and that didn’t augur well for the females. Although some women got good paying jobs, most were of the office secretarial staff and factory production line variety. The parents wanted their sons to have a good education, get a good job, make good money, and marry a good woman, while for the daughters, it sufficed to get a good man, a ‘somebody’. The world continued to be very macho because women geared their ambitions to that of their men.

However, in 1920, after the passing of the 19th amendment, women got the right to vote, own property, and manage their bank account without their husband’s permission. After WWII, there was a move to the suburbs and the good life, and that’s when the real trouble started. It was the beginning of a world of comfort, leisure and plenty, a world for which our specie is absolutely not genetically programmed. The desperate housewife was being born.

However, women had to wait for the 1960’s and the advent of the pill in order to be emancipated, at least sexually. That’s when they were freed to some extent from male sexual domination and abuse. For the first time in 3 million years they could claim that they were in charge of their own body, and free to decide whether to have children or not. But though the females did gain some sexual freedom, social parity remained very much out of reach.

Genetically, women are programmed to get the best male with the best genes, as dictated by natural selection. But when we became intelligent and left the world of natural selection some three million years ago, though our genetic make-up remained unchanged, the relationship between males and females took an abrupt turn for the worse. Women lost their privileged status in that they stopped getting the services of the best genitor available, the alpha male. Not only did more lower ranking males get at the females, but they became selective as well. When the pill came along, women unwittingly attempted to go back to the good old natural selection days where they were the ones who more or less chose and got the best genitor. But unfortunately, in trying to reclaim their social role of old, they decided to do so by being seductive. They didn’t know at the time that fighting for emancipation by attracting pseudo alpha males with their badge of femininity would not only be a missed opportunity, but a disastrous social experiment. They didn’t know that the altruistic alpha male of pre-sapiens times no longer existed.

The male entrepreneurs were quick to exploit that sexual aberration by taking charge of the fashion world. The badge of femininity, as a symbol of independence and success, was adopted with a vengeance when technicolor first hit the big screen in 1936 and especially the small screen in 1966. In the process, women naturally morphed into Barbies, and it made many heterosexual and homosexual males of the fashion and cosmetic world very rich. By wearing her mask, the female couldn’t hope to find a partner who was her equal and a job worthy of her potential, and she was an easy prey for any pseudo alpha male who came along. Establishing a meaningful equal relationship became almost an impossibility. The female certainly wasn’t aware that wearing the badge in order to get a man was not only ugly and vulgar, but counterproductive as well. To be fair, the pill had hit the market like a tsunami, and overwhelmed, women had responded instinctively by looking for an alpha male like they had always had in the world of natural selection millions of years before. Unfortunately, they weren’t aware that the alpha male of old had volatized along with the world of natural selection and had been replaced by self-interested and self-centered imitations.

It now seems obvious that if women are to achieve social equality and parity, they must discard the badge of femininity as an absolute prerequisite. They not only have to fight tooth and nail for equal education and equal jobs for equal pay, but they have to focus on getting free universal child care, parental leave, and having access to pro-choice clinics. Women would be well advised to stop making their quest for alpha males a top priority, for altruistic alpha males are long gone. The alpha male of old was objective in his role, and was concerned with the welfare of the group, whereas today, the perceived alpha male is mainly self-interested. The female should look for an ordinary loving man like her in order to share the joys of family life on an equal footing instead of looking for a pseudo-alpha dominating male, be he an Adonis.

But in our world of leisure, it’s hard to find a partner with whom we can establish a lifelong relationship based on trust, honesty, and respect. And if equality and parity are to be achieved, women have to stop using sexuality as a tool, and throw their badge of femininity in the trash can. If one feels the need to prove that he or she is a man or a woman, something has to be terribly flawed in that person. Marlboro Man, the macho man par excellence, was dethroned years back, surely Barbie, the bimbo, can be as well.

50-THE OIL PATCH

Our consumer world is built in large part on oil. The sweetest and cheapest oil comes from the Middle East. Today, the unrest we see in the world and call terrorism stems in large part from its exploitation, and it constitutes a major obstacle standing in the way of the development of the global village. But although the oil sheiks have accumulated mountains of petrodollars, they have no real power, so it won’t take as long for Islam to throw in the towel as it did for the Holy Roman Empire.

Because the oil sheiks are bitter relative to the apparent injustices done them by the City bankers, and because they don’t want to be overwhelmed by western ways, they manipulate Islam in order to reclaim some power over their destinies. Religion is once more being used as a tool. However, because the City has all the gold and controls all the central banks of the world since the Bretton Woods agreement in 1944, it is omnipotent, and it will not let the oil sheiks stop the march of globalization.

The Middle East problem started after the fall of the Ottoman Empire during World War I, when a Briton, Mark Sykes, and a Frenchman, Francois Picot, were directed to draw the new borders of the Middle East sheikdoms. In wanting to better organize the exploitation of oil by France and Britain, the City bankers directed them to draw the map of this very volatile region of the world and divide it into states that cut through ethnic and religious communities. In doing so, they created a geopolitical problem of great proportion. A century on, many Arabs continue to blame the subsequent violence in the Middle East, from the occupation of Palestine to the rise of the Islamic State, on the Sykes-Picot treaty.

The excellent cheap easily extracted oil started being shipped around the world just as the US Dollar was becoming the dominant currency in the world following the creation of the Federal Reserve Board in 1913. At that time, oil was selling for less than five dollars a barrel, and Europe and America couldn’t get enough of it.

For 100 years now, the Arab states, led by Saudi Arabia, have been selling mindboggling amounts of oil to the developed countries. To this day, the Emirates hold more dollars than anybody else in the world, and therein lies the problem. They can build ski slopes in the desert, but they are not allowed to build aircraft carriers and atomic bombs. The only way the oil sheiks can make the petrodollars work is by depositing them in the Central Banks of the World which are directly tied to the City. If they wanted to withdraw their dollars in order to make the Central Banks collapse, their dollars would no longer be worth anything. It is the best catch22 ever devised. The sheiks are very rich, have little power, and are very frustrated.

Terrorism is the result of this frustration. The Emirates are doing everything they can to reclaim their autonomy and free themselves from the City. Though this is an absolute impossibility given that the City owns and runs the financial world, it does not stop them from trying. The sheiks have not only chosen to manipulate Islam in order to achieve their goals, but the problem is further complicated in that Islam is split into Sunnis and Shiites, two factions that behave like deadly enemies.

Following the Sykes-Picot treaty in 1916, the City not only financed the development of the oil industry, but they paid for the oil extracted. The problem, however, was that the sheiks didn’t have any say in the matter, and once empowered by the fantastic windfall that ensued, they wanted to redress the situation. The City bankers had foreseen this, and in wanting to police the area, had created the Empire of Iran in 1941 and the State of Israel in 1948. However, they made a big mistake in not paying attention to the fact that Islam was divided into two deadly enemy factions.

Since close to 90% of the 1, 5 billion Muslims in the world are Sunnis and the rest Shiites, Saudi Arabia and Egypt being the two main countries in the Sunni world, we could wonder why the City bankers opted for a Shiite Iran. In 1941, when the City decided to enthrone the Shah of Iran and give him state of the art armament, it seems the City was swayed by the fact that ex-Persia represented one of the greatest cultures that the world had ever seen, and that the sheiks of the peninsula were perceived as mere tribal chiefs.

Since 1694, the City bankers have made three major mistakes. The first was when the original Bank of England bankers forced English trade down everybody’s throats which ended up costing them America and the financial control of the world. The second was when the banking dynasty that replaced it put too much trust in Tsar Nicholas II which led to WWII, and the third was when that same dynasty failed to pay attention to the Shiite-Sunni split which ended up costing them the Six-Day War, the Iran-Iraq War and the two Gulf Wars, not to mention all the ongoing terrorist acts that have to be countered on a daily basis.

The City bankers did, however, change their minds after Israel defeated Sunni Egypt in the Six-Day War in 1967, when it became obvious that the Shah of Iran was not able to hold his end of the bargain and assert his authority in the Middle East. In 1979, the bankers decided to back the Sunnis (Saudi Arabia and Egypt) instead of the Shiites (Iran). They had the Ayatollah Khomeini depose the Shah of Iran on the one hand and encouraged Saudi Arabia to back Saddam Hussein and make him the strong man in Iraq on the other.

The Iraq-Iran War followed in 1980, and it turned out to be a long war of attrition that ended in a stalemate. Not only was Saddam Hussein an incapable leader unable to defeat the Shiites of Iran, but he was becoming an unmanageable despot. He therefore had to go, and it took two Gulf Wars to get rid of him, one in 1990 and another in 2003. A media campaign was sufficient to get America to launch the 1st Iraq War codenamed Desert Storm in 1990, but the negative results of that war that had followed the apocalyptic Vietnam War made Americans wary, and it took the World Trade Center bombing of 1993, the Oklahoma Federal Building bombing of 1995, and 9/11 in 2001 to get America to launch the 2nd Iraq War in 2003. Today, Saddam is gone, the Sunnis (Saudi Arabia) are slowly reasserting their authority in the region, while the City is encouraging a Muslim diaspora in order to have Islam integrate the global village. By having millions of Muslims immigrate to a Europe that badly needs manpower, Islam will gradually be liberated from the sheiks’ influence and become an acceptable religion just like in the case of Christianity after the Holy Roman Empire was destroyed.

For now, the recalcitrant Sunnis and Shiites are spreading terror in order to have their way, and there is a lot of collateral damage whereby innocent people suffer. But the good news is that the Sunni and Shiite leaders will be forced to throw in the towel in the not too distant future because the global village concept is irreversible. Some Emirates have already started adopting western ways, and it’s only a matter of time before their leaders start wearing ‘suits’.

49-GEOPOLITICAL SANDWICH

 

WWII had been needed because, during WWI, when the tsar left to take command of the armies, the Bolsheviks in the Duma and the tsarina with her spiritual adviser Rasputin all opposed the war on the one hand, and the tsar was not meant to be a military field commander on the other. The bankers in the City had not expected such a development, and since an eastern front wasn’t materializing, they had no choice but to terminate a war that had become a senseless war of attrition. The City bankers decided that if Russia was to be counted on to create an eastern front in the upcoming WWII, and eventually play a scarecrow role in what was to be the mighty USSR after the war, they needed a new strongman at the helm. By 1928 Stalin had replaced Lenin and introduced his five-year plan.

In 1929, Stalin ordered the liquidation of the Kulaks as a social class, and the Red Purges lasted until 1938. In 1922, Lenin had introduced an economic plan that allowed some farmers to sell their crops. Once in power, Stalin completely did away with all that, and millions of Kulaks with their families starved or were slaughtered. According to this egomaniac, for the USSR to catch up with the world, everybody had to work for the state, no questions asked. Naturally, the USSR was transformed into the formidable police state that many of us later came to know, but at the exorbitant cost of 20 million Russian civilians and soldiers killed.

By 1945, all the old regimes of Europe had been dismantled and the Holy Roman Empire east of the Rhine no longer existed. The pound sterling had been replaced by the dollar as the international reserve currency, Germany and Japan were completely devastated, and China was unified. Moreover, Israel, which was destined to become the gendarme of the Middle East, was on the verge of becoming a state. The hordes of Jews from Eastern Europe hell-bent on reaching America before the war had been pushed back under atrocious conditions and forced to work for the German war machine before being transported from the Baltic states to Palestine at the end of the war.

Prior to WWII, Russia had been merely a shell of a nation. But thanks to the American lend-lease program, the City bankers had armed the nation and Russia had ‘won’ the war. After the war, the lend-lease program continued and Russia was transformed into a virtual superpower, the USSR, a country that would be perceived as a worthy U.S. foe. The world would henceforth have two major league teams: the U.S. would be team ‘A’, and the USSR, team ‘B’. They were to threaten each other in order to create international tension, but they were never meant to shoot at each other, and never did. Both teams did the bidding of the bankers in the City, and if there’s any doubt, all we have to do is look at the role the USSR played in Afghanistan, Egypt, Algeria, Cuba, and other parts of the world before it collapsed like a house of cards. However, the main purpose for having these two teams after the war was to create a monster geopolitical sandwich, a sandwich with Europe in the middle of two bigger-than-life military powers, the U.S. and the USSR. Having lost its will to fight after two world wars, and being constantly threatened with nuclear annihilation, Europe would naturally be eager to unite and protect itself against those two big bullies. As planned, the cold war did not see a single shot fired between the two “superpowers,” and the Treaty of Maastricht was signed at about the same time the Berlin Wall was torn down in 1989.

Russia was a huge, bankrupt country that had always known a feudal serf system. It had been a nation with no market economy, no infrastructure, and its citizens didn’t even have indoor plumbing, yet lo and behold, underdeveloped Russia miraculously became a superpower overnight, and took off for the stars. In no time at all, it had rockets and Sputniks, nuclear bombs and missiles, and it was threatening to blow up the whole world. Intercontinental bombers and nuclear submarines were being built in record number and in record time, or so the Gorgon Sisters told us. The City was obviously building the most impressive scarecrow it could dream up as fast as it could. Russia’s MIGS were even equipped with Rolls-Royce engines from England. Russia had a lot of missiles, but we’ll never know how many of them were equipped with nuclear warheads. The City was erecting an imaginary apocalyptic structure that would be so threatening and so ever-present in people’s minds, especially now that there was a television set in everybody’s living room, that it would sow terror in the heart of the citizens of the world. Russia became a phenomenal scarecrow that was used in a masterful propaganda campaign that lasted forty-odd years.

The City had set up the Russian scarecrow for everyone to see. It financed the Sputnik project in 1957 and stuffed the ensuing images in all the television sets in America and the world, thereby turning the USSR into a bigger-than-life foe. When the Berlin Wall was built in 1961, and especially when Nikita Khrushchev allegedly gave atomic bomb carrying missiles to Cuba in 1962, the USSR was perceived as the baddest superpower the world could imagine.

As expected, with the U.S. on one side and the USSR on the other, the Europeans were quick to start talking union. As early as 1950, Germany and France decided to unite their steel and coal industries, and in 1957, the same year Sputnik was launched, the Treaty of Rome was signed and the European Economic Union, the EEC, was born. The Berlin Wall fell in 1989 and the Treaty of Maastricht was signed in 1992. Now that the European Union had reached the point of no return, the wall was no longer needed. It was demolished while Russia went back to being the feudal serf regime that it had always been. At the time, many wondered about the USSR being little more than smoke and mirrors, but the Gorgon Sisters kept the image alive as best they could. The propaganda techniques used in the case of the USSR scarecrow were so efficient and cost-effective that the City is today successfully using the same technique in North Korea, albeit for other reasons.

If the geopolitical U.S.A.-Europe-USSR sandwich theory seems far-fetched, circumstantial evidence can be had from Louis T. McFadden’s infamous report to Congress in November 1934. McFadden was a respected Congressman who had started as a humble bank clerk and had become President of the Pennsylvania Bankers’ Association before being elected as a Republican Representative to the sixty-fourth Congress in 1914. Congressman Louis T. McFadden was Chairman of the very prestigious House Committee on Banking and Currency from 1920 to 1931. Nonetheless, this extraordinary citizen was accused of being an anti-Semite because he fought the FED.

When he accused the FED of having caused the Great Depression, and also of having funded the Bolshevik Revolution, it was taken very seriously in the City. It got worse when, in 1932, he moved to impeach President Hoover while bringing conspiracy charges against the FED, and when again in 1933, he moved to impeach the Secretary of the Treasury, two assistant Secretaries of the Treasury and the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve, as well as the officers and directors of the FED’s twelve regional banks. His attempts failed, but there were subsequently three attempts on his life. The third one was successful when he died of poisoning on a visit to New York City, in 1936. No order is ever given for drastic action of this kind, but there is always an appropriately placed ‘suit’ to do what ‘needs’ to be done.

The City cannot exist without democracy, and democracy cannot exist without the empowerment of the people, therefore, the City bankers are sometimes forced to play with life and death like a heart surgeon. Taking a healthy heart from a dead person, and a sick one from a live person, and switching them, is not something too many people can do. And while the results are not always those hoped for, who can say with any degree of certainty if it’s not warranted? The only things that matter in drastic world undertakings such as war is for its motive to be dispassionate and for the goal to be for the good of all, at least in the long term. After two world wars, there was Bretton Woods, and since then, the world is officially under one financial roof. If we believe that, as we should, we also believe that the City bankers can’t possibly want to destroy the superb structure that took them 400 years to build. We can be absolutely sure there will never be another major war, that is, unless it’s launched from outer space.

 

48-THE STATE OF ISRAEL

There’s quite a dilemma here! Either the Rothschilds control world finance or they don’t. If they control international finance since 1810, why didn’t they put a stop to the Nazi Party’s rise and the arms buildup prior to WW11, and the horrendous persecution of the Jews during the war? The answer is that they were the ones who financed all three operations. Let’s not forget that the Rothschilds control the three Gorgon sisters that can launch propaganda campaigns at will. Why should we be surprised if, in matters surrounding WWII, the media didn’t tell it like it was? The following is a synopsis of the Jewish question and why the City allowed so many atrocities to be committed against the Jews.

First, the three Gorgon sisters exaggerated the numbers when they said that six million Jews were exterminated during WWII while spreading horrendous pictures to support their claim. One of the reasons they did was because the Rothschilds wanted to create the State of Israel, and to do so, they had to shock the conscience of the Christian world that is anti-semite. So, at the end of the war, not only did they exploit the pictures that were taken of 42,000 Bergen-Belsen camp prisoners who had died of typhus and had been bulldozed into mass graves, and those of the many thousands of emaciated prisoners dying of starvation in the many liberated camps after the war, but they distorted the truth by alleging they were all Jews. What is not made clear is that Roms, homosexuals, misfits, intellectuals, politicians and prisoners of war made up a large portion of the camp populations. The Rothschilds wanted to transfix the whole human race with deeply-felt horror using appalling pictures in order to lay the groundwork for the creation of the State of Israel while guaranteeing that their name would never be associated with WWII, for how could anybody in his right mind think the Rothschilds had anything to do with WWII, a war that was meant to exterminate Jews?

However, what happened to the Jews in Europe during WWII had to be okayed by the Rothschilds, for it was the culmination of a very complex Jewish problem that had been created by the Rothschilds themselves. As early as 1892, the Russian Jews, who had been forever persecuted, were used as pawns when the Rothschilds decided to encourage them to go to Palestine with the intention of creating a homeland for all the Jews of the world, a state that would play the role of a much needed policeman in the oil-rich Middle East. They started financing Jewish immigration to what was to become Israel, in 1892. Up until 1939, there were five waves of immigration, population movements better known as Aliyahs. The last Aliyah occurred just before WWII when approximately 250,000 Jews left Germany and Central and Eastern Europe for Palestine. The Aliyahs were partially successful, and Tel-Aviv, founded in 1909, attests to that. However, Palestine was a very arid place and as disillusioned Jews wandered back into Europe, they spread the word that Palestine was not a very inviting land. It’s also a known fact that most of the Jews wanted to reach the West. They all wanted to go to America in spite of the fact that the U.S. had, by now, removed the welcome mat. One thing was for sure, Palestine was not a place where the East European Jews wanted to go and they would have to be forced into going if the Jewish homeland was to become a reality.

Since early Russian persecutions against Jews, many of the latter had ended up in Poland, a land of tolerant Catholics who had welcomed the poor lost souls. But prior to WWI, many Jews bent on going west to America, headed westward and landed in Germany where they were exploited and, in many cases, used as slave labor in the German factories that were gearing up for the war. After losing the war, an impoverished Germany wanted to rid itself of the same poor uneducated Polish Jews, for they were no longer needed and were an impediment to the economy. Unfortunately, by this time, not only did America and Germany not want them, but Poland, now run by fascist Catholics, was also refusing to take them back and had even started persecuting those that were in Poland. So, at the end of the day, millions of Jews who had been encouraged to go to Palestine by the Rothschilds were now stagnating in the worst of conditions in Central Europe.

Necessarily, the Jewish problem was front-and-center during the planning of WWII and it is no accident that the City chose to finance the Thule Society, a group of Nazis who believed in a superior Aryan race and who blamed the Jews for Germany’s woes. If the City wanted to force the Jews eastward, spirit them northward and later, out of Europe, it was better to finance those who would do a convincing job and who would never be associated with the Rothschild name. In a critical situation, it is better to deal with the devil you know than the one you don’t.

The Rothschilds had obviously accepted the fact that during the upcoming WWII, no matter what they did, the Jews would greatly suffer along with the Germans, the Russians, and the Poles, and they likely decided to make the best out of this calamitous enterprise by managing it as best they could. If, after the war, many of the Nazi “war criminals” were allowed to live in peace in such places as Brazil, Argentina, and Canada, it can only mean they had rendered great services to the City bankers during the war and were now being protected by their very powerful guardian angel.

All the alleged extermination camps were built in Eastern Europe, mainly in Poland. The City had started building this extravagant network of camps and railways before the fall of Warsaw in 1939. Was the fact that they were all built behind what was to become the Iron Curtain and would be inaccessible to Western scrutiny for the next forty years due to fate, or was it planned? Collective memory is very short and with the Russian scarecrow already in the works, the City no doubt knew that if its “final solution” propaganda was not physically challenged during the Cold War, it would remain unassailable for eternity. Whatever, there doesn’t seem to be much doubt that the plan was to have the German “war criminals” round up as many Jews as possible and send them eastward to the Polish camps before sending them northward to the labor camps in German occupied territories. After a sure-to-be-horrendous treatment, the poor wretches who survived would welcome the opportunity to go to Palestine and, with a world trembling with revulsion, Israel would become a reality.

The number of Polish Jews who were or were not killed in the conditions we were told is today a much-contested matter. There are two groups with opposing views: the revisionists and the proponents. The history of WWII tells us that six million Jews were exterminated by the Germans in what is called the Holocaust. That seems to be what the Rothschilds have always wanted the world to believe and the three Gorgon Sisters were very successful in doing just that. However, the forensic evidence emanating from revisionists and published since the end of the war, indicates that there was no systematic extermination of the Jews, and certainly nothing close to the six million that were officially declared massacred.

The proponents, on the other hand, contend there were mass graves in extermination camps such as Treblinka and Auschwitz, graves that allegedly contained the ashes of millions of cremated bodies. If so, such numbers would have produced hundreds of tons of ashes, along with bone and tooth debris, and the lot would be extremely easy to detect. Ground penetrating radars can easily show where mass graves are dug, even seventy years after the fact. Proving their existence would be a simple matter of going to the alleged areas, grabbing a shovel, taking a few samples, and analyzing their contents in the presence of an impartial team of observers. The matter could thus be laid to rest in the matter of hours and yet the proponents have never agreed to do this.

The revisionists, on the other hand, did conduct clandestine experiments where the alleged mass graves allegedly were and found nothing to support the proponents’ thesis. Furthermore, a respected scientist, Germar Rudolph, experimented with the alleged gas chambers in Poland and concluded that no such mass extermination methods were used. Fred Leuchter, an engineer who was in the business of building gas execution chambers in the U.S., clearly demonstrated that Zyclon-B gas, an insecticide that was allegedly used in the alleged extermination camps, had been tested in the U.S. as a possible lethal gas for executions as early as 1929, and that, based on his experience and that of his predecessors, it could have been used to disinfect clothing, but not to kill large numbers of people if used in conditions such as existed in the alleged WWII gas chambers.

It seems the number of Jewish victims was greatly exaggerated, that there were no mass exterminations, and that the strip-gas-incinerate horror stories were more of the strip-shower-delouse variety. To be sure, there were many executions and mobile gassing units were used, but nothing that would account for the death of millions. Before WWII, there were three million Jews in Poland. We know that thirty-five thousand died in the Warsaw Ghetto and that some three hundred thousand were sent on to Treblinka, but the proponents say that the whole three million were exterminated. It’s much more likely that most of the three million Polish Jews were forced northward and used in labor camps for the German arms industry. If the proponents keep proposing this preposterous figure as a starting number, they, of course, soon arrive at the six million number put forward by the three Gorgon sisters. However, based on good common sense, the total number of Jews who were murdered or gassed, and who died of starvation and disease, had to be much less. The proponents, in justifying the six million figures, likely ignore the fact that four point four million Jews left Europe between 1931 and 1945.

To be sure, the numbers used by the three Gorgon sisters after the war were very misleading. For instance, of the seventy thousand Jews deported from France during the war, only around seven thousand were full-fledged registered French citizens and of those, three thousand returned after the war. In Germany, it was even more blurred, for there was a large population of poor Polish Jews that were unregistered. Of the 140 thousand Jews deported to Poland, we can’t know how many were German citizens, but we do know that after the war, some fifteen thousand German Jews along with some 200 thousand East European Jews came back to settle in Allied-occupied Germany. In France, as in Germany, non-nationals were never part of the census and a lot of Jews had been running for their lives. It should be noted, as well, that a lot of those who were exterminated were the very rich. The local French or German nomenklatura no doubt knew a good thing when they saw one, and it is no accident if much of the wealth stolen from the rich French and German Jews ended up in Swiss banks while their owners were exterminated. It may all be a muddle, but could it be there were a lot more survivors than believed and that the horrific Jew round-up throughout Europe was a “resettlement solution” to the very complex problem created by the Rothschilds, who had failed in their attempt to send East European Jews to Palestine years before?

There is no proof that millions were exterminated and buried at Treblinka, Auschwitz, or other such sites during the war. This does not take away from the fact that German psychopaths caused the death of many Jews and the suffering of millions more. It just means that many of the victimized Jews were saved because they were transited through such camps as Treblinka and Auschwitz on their way to the labor camps in the Baltic States and Sweden, and after the war, were shipped to Palestine. Schindler’s List is much, much, longer than we think.

We mustn’t forget that, during WWII, the Eastern front was a deadly place to be, for it claimed twenty million Russians and eight million Germans. During that period, Germans imprisoned and executed Roms, homosexuals, misfits and reactionaries, and prisoners of all kinds, not just Jews. A great number of Jews died in unspeakable ways, but could the word extermination used to describe their fate be a bit too strong? Could the expression “final solution” have been misused in that it was intended to mean that the State of Israel would finally be created and that no Jew would ever again be persecuted?

Some may wonder why scientists who question the existence of mass graves or the use of gas chambers for mass extermination during WWII are accused of inciting hatred toward Jews. Why are people who want to know the truth convicted and even imprisoned? That is very odd behavior indeed on the part of democratic states. Could this be more proof that democracies around the world are totally controlled by the City? If the Jewish bankers find it necessary to prevent forensic research into these matters by jailing scientists, is it because their backs are against the wall? The City is made up of hard-nosed pragmatists and, when doing business, they don’t make mistakes like leaving physical evidence lying about or not leaving any when they say they did. Could it be that this time, in their efforts to create the State of Israel, they were a bit careless because they were being ruled by their emotions like the Church prelates of old? Could it be they depended too much on permanent collective amnesia?

No matter, when the State of Israel was created, the Rothschilds had reached one of their main objectives and it is almost certain that an anti-Semite world would not have been as easily won over if the pictures taken at the end of the war hadn’t been used so effectively, and if the six million figure hadn’t been etched in people’s brains. Repeating the word “genocide” and broadcasting that six million Jews had been exterminated, while showing emaciated bodies being bulldozed into huge trenches, definitely had more impact than simply acknowledging the horrific death of a great number of Jews. Why else are the six million figures so sacred? Surely, the appalling death of so many and the horrendous treatment endured by millions more is bad enough.

47-WWII AND BRETTON WOODS

After the armistice was signed in 1918, the City banking dynasty immediately sat down at the drawing board and prepared for WWII. The Treaty of Versailles signed in 1919 was the worst possible peace treaty imaginable, and we can be sure that peace was not on the peacemakers’ mind. All the statesmen had to be from la-la land in order to give their approval to such impossible terms. The thirty-three billion dollars of war reparations the allies imposed on Germany couldn’t possibly be repaid and everybody knew it. Furthermore, when it was decided to split Germany in two by creating the Polish Corridor, the whole German population was profoundly humiliated. Such decisions were more than enough to set the wheels in motion for WWII, notwithstanding the fact that Stalin was waiting in the wings.

The Treaty of Versailles definitely indicated the direction in which the City was heading, and very soon the bankers found their mouthpiece, the man who would rally the German crowds. Adolf Hitler was noticed very early on in 1919. In spite of his poor physical condition, he had joined the army in 1914 at age twenty-five. Until then, he had been a poor, lost soul and the war had given him a purpose in life. Private Hitler volunteered his services as a dispatch runner, a very dangerous assignment, and was eventually promoted to the rank of corporal. His comrades thought he was rather weird, for he forever volunteered for the most dangerous missions, facing death repeatedly while remaining unruffled by it all. In 1916, he was wounded in the leg and went on R&R to Berlin where he became thoroughly disgusted with the apathy among German civilians with regards to the war. Upon returning to the front in the last days of the war, he was blinded by chlorine gas and returned to a starving, weary Germany to convalesce. Upon hearing that Germany had been defeated, he became totally despondent, and when he eventually snapped out of it, he was filled with deep hatred vaguely directed at groups within Germany.

In 1919, still in the army, this overly patriotic twit went so far as to inform on his fellow soldiers, and this led to the arrest and even the execution of many. The General Staff, embittered by Germany’s defeat and the unjust terms of the armistice, rewarded Hitler by promoting him to undercover agent and sending him on an indoctrination course at the University of Munich. He returned as an “education’ officer and started speaking out with great vehemence against the Communists. The mysterious Thule Society had taken Hitler under its wing and his fate was sealed.

Hitler swore vengeance on those who had put an end to the war, the only worthwhile experience he had ever known. Inexplicably, his ire was directed mostly at the perceived enemies from within Germany, the Communists and the Jewish Marxists. Moreover, Hitler had to have had serious psychological problems in order to advance the idea of a superior race made up of blond, blue-eyed Aryans. This was not a healthy idea to begin with, but it was especially so because Hitler happened to have a swarthy complexion and brown eyes that had most likely been genetically transmitted by a Jewish parent. It’s obvious that someone was manipulating this air brain.

In 1919, Hitler, the intelligence officer, dressed as a civilian in order to spy on a meeting of the German Workers’ Party in Munich. When one of the members suggested that Bavaria separate from Germany and join Austria, it touched a raw nerve in the extremely patriotic Hitler. He couldn’t resist lashing out at the whole gathering in spite of the fact that he was Austrian by birth. Nonetheless, he definitely had the gift of the gab and everybody was impressed. Understandably, the members of the Thule Society were quick to have him join the German Workers’ Party. He may have been uneducated with deep psychological problems, but now, this empty-headed megalomaniac guided by hate and vengeance was in politics.

Hitler was a great talker, but all the ideas he kept expounding over the years were those of the Thule Society. This fraternity consisted of a small group of influential Germans who believed in the superiority of the Aryan race. They were deeply nationalistic and racist and from the very beginning, they had the swastika in their coat of arms. It was Dietrich Eckart, a leading member of that society that helped Hitler hone his public speaking skills. As early as 1919, Hitler had definitely been taken in by the Thule Society, the group that gave birth to the Nazi Party.

At first, the violent methods used to promote Hitler and the German Workers’ Party didn’t have the desired results. They only succeeded in getting the whole country to view Hitler as a silly little man, a sort of bad-tempered clown. Nonetheless, by 1923, Germany was reeling under the effects of inflation, and Hitler’s backers thought the time had come to make their mark by overthrowing the Bavarian Government. However, the Munich Beer Hall Putsch, as it became known, failed and Hitler was arrested. That’s when Hitler’s supporters decided that force alone was not going to work and that it was best to use more politically-correct methods.

Hitler’s public trial lasted several weeks and, for some unknown reason, the authorities let this ridiculous little man flaunt his oratory skills throughout. He apparently seduced many of the judges, for instead of getting life he got five years and was eligible for parole within six months. He served nine months in luxurious quarters and even had a private secretary, Rudolph Hess, who was a member of the Thule Society. That’s when Hitler produced Mein Kampf, a book that could never have been written without the help of Hess, a man who had studied politics at the University of Munich. The writing of Mein Kampf was, without a doubt, a way to spread Thule Society propaganda.

Guided by the members of the Thule Society, and assisted by misfits like Joseph Goebbels, a communications and propaganda genius, Heinrich Himler, a cruel, cold-blooded psychopath, and Adolf Eichmann, a logistics genius, Hitler became Fuhrer in 1934. It’s obvious that the Nazi Party was a very costly machine to operate, and only the City, through the Bundesbank and the German arms industry, could have financed such a sophisticated political machine, for Germany was a devastated country. And as the arms industry revved up its production, the economy picked up, and Hitler, now seen as some kind of savior, easily convinced the German people that war was inevitable and that he was the one who could lead them to victory.

After WWII was declared, the German army went around the totally useless French Maginot Line with lightning speed and had the allies surrounded at Dunkirk in a matter of days. One can only wonder why, in an age of air and tank warfare, a great nation such as France spent huge sums of money in order to build an archaic structure, if not to allow Hitler to reach the Atlantic in record time. With the allied armies unable to retreat further, Hitler let the troops sail to England, no doubt hoping for a non-aggression pact in compensation for his good deed. However, England was apparently not willing to cooperate. Hitler then figured he might get the English to change their minds if he shook them up a bit. Eventually, the English must have given Hitler some assurances, for the London Blitz ended on May 10th 1941. Convinced that the western front was now secure, Hitler immediately turned his attention to the eastern front, and invaded Russia on June 22nd, 1941. Just like Napoleon in 1812, who had gone after the gold in the Urals, Hitler wanted to get his hands on something he really needed, the oil in the Caucasus. In both cases, the megalomaniacs’ armies were destroyed, and in both instances, their empires came to an abrupt end. The City tends to repeat what works well.

On December 7th, 1941, shortly after Hitler took off for Russia, the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor. It seems the City was thinking of China and wanted to destroy the Nippon Empire by using the might of America. In July of that year, Congress imposed an oil embargo on Japan, and the ensuing kamikaze approach to the war adopted by Japan proved the City right. Japan had tried to negotiate with the U.S., but everything possible had been done by the Americans to have the negotiations fail. The very proud Samurais were thus forced into a suicidal war, hanging on to the hope that an alliance with an apparently victorious Germany would improve their prospects.

If there’s any doubt that America was conned into going to war, a few facts should help dissipate it. Although the US and UK navies controlled the Pacific, and although there was a SCR-270 radar station with a 150-mile range installed in Honolulu, the Japanese were able to have a huge fleet of warships, including aircraft carriers, sail across the Pacific to Hawaii, and then launch squadrons of aircraft without anyone noticing. Furthermore, all the U.S. aircraft carriers had been sent out on sea exercises and only the very outdated WWI battleships and destroyers remained in port. The play became obvious when President Roosevelt, under the guise of protecting the U.S. air force, personally ordered all the military aircraft based at the Honolulu airbase to be positioned in such a configuration as to make them less vulnerable on the ground, but which had, in fact, the effect of preventing them from scrambling effectively. It seems that the City dynasty had simply let Roosevelt know it was time for war.

The City bankers succeeded in getting the U.S. to join the war at a cost of only 2,390 lives, the number of casualties at Pearl Harbor, a low human toll when considering the mindboggling number of casualties in WWI and WWII. The war in the Pacific got underway as planned, and the U.S. declared war on Germany without actually engaging Hitler for another three years. When the American troops did get into the thick of things on D-day, in 1944, Stalin’s troops came in from the east, and the Holy Germanic Empire was totally destroyed. As of that moment, all the Ancien Regimes of Europe, including Russia and the Ottoman Empire, could be considered demolished, and the Vatican tiger was at last toothless and declawed.

To have some idea which countries the City targeted in WWII, we need only look at the casualty numbers. Russia lost twenty-two million soldiers and civilians, while Germany and China suffered losses of eight million and twenty million, respectively. As for the UK, the U.S., and France, they lost around half a million each. We know that the City had wanted to destroy Germany, but why so many Russian casualties? And what was going on in China? For one, Russia had to be seriously weakened if it was to be trusted to play the scarecrow role it was on the verge of being assigned, and that will be explained in the next posting. In China’s case, the City obviously had let the Japanese mangle the Chinese warlords at will, for during the war it supplied China with just enough war materials for it not to capitulate. The City had fully intended to destroy Japan once the Chinese warlords were done in, and the time had come. China was ready to be transformed into the great market economy that it is today.

In 1944, in Bretton Woods, with the world having gone through the grinder, the City convened all the nations of the world and had no difficulty in creating the first official world currency of reference, the U.S. dollar. All the countries agreed to peg their currency to the dollar and use the dollar as a reserve currency. The City had achieved the ultimate in financial wizardry, the paper dollar was now as good as gold worldwide.
