Re: Fascist Democracy
Good question Jimbo... But it has an easier solution than you might think. Though a gold and silver standard will have its problems, it is still the best economic system devised by man. It is the only just system that history has shown to work. Nothing on this earth is perfect, but a monetary standard fixed to a scarcely precious metal, that takes effort to mine and refine, thus it is produced on the free market, i.e., it is production and honest labor in and of itself, making it difficult to manipulate, is as close as you can come to a perfect system. Why do you think that the monetary powers go out of their way to belittle and denounce the gold standard?
Two things are the stalwarts of a free people: freedom of speech (mind) and property rights. A gold standard is the first step toward total property rights. If one does not own his own money (production) then he owns nothing, which is where we find ourselves today, being taxed a thousand ways, subject to the Federal Reserve Gestapo (IRS).
How can this be achieved? The first principle of freedom must be obeyed: freedom of speech (mind). In order for us to have found ourselves in the economic quandary that we find ourselves in, one thing had to have happened first: our minds and our speech had to be stolen from us. The media from the beginning of this country has been awash in corruption being controlled by the moneyed class. Today our educational facilities are controlled and manipulated by this same class. People are completely ignorant and totally ill equipped mentally to deal with monetary issues. Ask the average Joe what the Federal Reserve is and I doubt that he can give a sufficient answer. Even yet, ask him how it operates and I guarantee you that he will not know. The moneychangers have control of the media, so you won't find any answers there.
Have you ever heard the actions of the Fed or its Chairman, whoever that might be, as part of any type of public debate? Do you not think that this issue is a tad important? Instead we hear about the farce of Social Security being bankrupt or whether we are going to get 2 percent tax cut vs. a 3 percent tax cut.
Once the people are sufficiently educated on the important matters of the day, they can take action in various ways in order to secure their liberty (property rights). Open rebellion or a Constitutional Amendment are a few choices. That's right, "We the People" have the right to petition and amend our Constitution.
\"If one understands that socialism is not a share-the-wealth program, but is in reality a method to consolidate and control the wealth, then the seeming paradox of super-rich men promoting socialism becomes no paradox at all. Instead, it becomes logic...
