This is pretty much the essence of things, and explains in brief summary much about the irrational path of world events for as long as we can all remember. Keeping this in mind as a basis, a prism through which to assess issues of primary importance (endless warring, banking bailouts, peculiar and inadequate reactions to nuclear meltdowns & oil spills, GE/GMO food, depleted uranium, health care reforms, etc.), vastly simplifies things for the citizen and voter, and allows much that is characterized as “grey area” of subtle nuance, needing the delicate finessing of experts to interpret and react to correctly, to be seen as the black & white matters they actually are, fully comprehendable by the average person of basic intelligence with an intact instinct of self-preservation.

“Capital must protect itself in every possible way, both by combination and legislation. Debts must be collected, mortgages foreclosed as rapidly as possible. When, through process of law, the common people lose their homes, they will become more docile and more easily governed through the strong arm of the government applied by a central power of wealth under leading financiers. These truths are well known among our principal men, who are now engaged in forming an imperialism to govern the world.
BY DIVIDING THE VOTERS THROUGH THE POLITICAL PARTY SYSTEM, WE CAN GET THEM TO EXPEND THEIR ENERGIES IN FIGHTING FOR QUESTIONS OF NO IMPORTANCE.
It is thus, by discrete action, we can secure for ourselves that which has been so well planned and so successfully accomplished.”
Montagu Norman, Governor of The Bank Of England, addressing the United States Bankers’ Association, New York, 1924.
No additional comment is necessary. This, from a bankster-oligarch’s own mouth, says it all. We should be grateful for the candid Mr. Norman, a very nice man who financed Hitler up to the outbreak of WWII… (read all at source)
Dear Current & Former Friends, Associates, Acquaintances & Family,
A special note before my follow-up info about the airport scanners and groping:
I want to apologize for the two recent unsolicited e-mails (this being the second) and promise not to make this a regular thing. I know how many messages most people get, and don’t care for getting a lot of the unasked-for type myself. In fact, because it is awkward, and I know this will be mostly greeted by impatience, rolling eyes, chuckles and/or pity, I won’t contact most of you again about things political, but, with the hope that the fact of our current or former acquaintance will cause you to read at least this one message from me – with a promise of no further – I will instead offer a general political comment and observation now, and a few resource suggestions and then leave you alone, likely to your approval and relief.
As bad as the privacy violation and health risks are, that it’s even on the table is amazing. Even more amazing is that most people (in the U.S.) don’t give a fennig about it. DM
