The downside of change

Our work expanded to include the federal reserve banking system because it was a pivotal event in American history surrounded by controversy. The source of much of the funding for the Third Way was via the Rothschilds' Bank of England so I had to know who they were too. But I never studied economics in college and I eventually relied heavily on alternative writers who seemed to be the only sources willing to discuss the implications of building the U.S. on illusionary money and credit (or teach me about the fed, CFR, TC, et. al.). I still have only a rudimentary understanding of how international bankers manipulated our system and how their stock markets work. Because I know so little about it, I trusted the economists who warned us about the flaws in the banking system, mainly because their predictions seemed to correspond to the overall communitarian theory of controlling everything. I did spend some time reading about the housing market and the bubble surrounding it, because so much of my early ACL research was on the reinvented government's agenda for creating safe and afforable housing and granting neighborhood cops new authority to impose and enforce stricter land use regulations.

It's one thing to read and talk about the coming economic collapse, it's quite another to watch it go down. The unpleasantness of this subject is one of the main reasons people I know refused to consider our work. So many Americans don't want to think about the possibility of losing everything. Our citizens exist in some kind of weird "happy" zone where everything will be "fine," and everything they own is really theirs, even when they're making monthly payments on most of it.

In the early days I tried my best to get my friends and family to read some of the financial things I was finding, especially the ones who own property and businesses. They pooh poohed me with all kinds of reasons why they didn't need to know anything. As years went by and nothing "major" happened to the U.S. economy, my decision to not go into anymore debt, to not buy another "real" house or invest my time in a career and regular employment looked pretty stupid. Every now and then, I get a call or an email from an old friend who says they "heard" I'm living in a tent in rural Alaska and what the hell is up with that? I never explain anymore that the whole system is crashing and this is my hedge against homelessness, because that's not an acceptable topic of conversation with lower-middle class people. I own my gertees, no bank can close or repo them, and even if something happens and I do lose it in other ways, I know how to build more of them. I'll have a warm, comfortable round room for my family to call "home" until there's no land left to put it on.

The people who recommended investing in gold and silver are being proven right. I think the communitarian plan to rebuild the world is going into hyperdrive.

Rense.com has a lot of good links to articles in the current news about Morgan Stanley and how a Chinese investor could end up with 49% of their stock. That sure plays into Nordica's theory that hidden Chinese women playing ma jong are the ones pulling the NWO strings.

Anyway, I sure hope all our readers, supporters, friends, family and loved ones are prepared for a very rough winter. It's all about quality of life now, isn't it?
'The World As We Know It Is Going Down'

By Marc Pitzke in New York

"Panic is the word of the hour on Wall Street. Now even Morgan Stanley is fighting for survival. The commercial bank Wachovia and China's Bank Citic are being discussed as possible rescuers. The crisis has led President Bush to cancel a trip."

The man who addressed the question of what kind of government they had given us and answered: "A Republic if you can keep it", also said; "Experience is a dear teacher, but fools will learn at no other." That man surely must have known what he was talking about, for he was one of the key founding fathers. His name was Benjamin Franklin.

The only thing which has changed dramatically to the present time, is that the number of fools has increased astronomically.

Franklin may be easy to ignore, but long before him, the writer of Proverbs 1:7 wrote: "...fools despise wisdom and instruction". Then in verse 22, he asks: "Until when will you love to be simple, you simple ones? And will scorners desire scorn for themselves? And will fools hate knowledge?" Rhetorical questions are especially easy to ignore what with everything being relative, but a confrontation with reality is now becoming impossible to ignore, and thats what we are facing.

Those who ignored the warnings will now get the experience.
