Self Preservation?

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 12:32 pm

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the sunny, temperate, calm, gorgeous island of Nantucket! Great to be with you and yours on this Monday morning, the 4th day of May, 2015, a beautiful Spring day at the Hyannis/Hyannis Port Waterfront(s), readying the ship for the warm, famous Cape summer to come, plenty of ‘time’ to make reservations, but hurry, I believe that the secret of this most amazing spot has been revealed, so book now, or forever hold your peace!

Dipping  back into the pool of reality, here on this little blue rock we all share called EARTH, I stumbled across a movie that I had never seen before.  Two really, one a follow up to the first. I defy you to discover where these quotes are coming from.  You see, not all is what is seems on the surface of the ocean as it were. Those desert like endless seven seas of waves, weather and wind serve the mask what is below said surface and it is only those who dive deep who ultimately find the truth.  The TRUTH as to what is really going on in this turbulent world we are all experiencing collectively even if we don’t know we are all ONE.

“The most fundamental characteristic of our social institutions is the necessity of self-preservation.  Whether dealing with a corporation, a government or a religion, the foremost interest is to preserve the institution itself.  For example, the last thing an oil company would ever want is the utilization of energy that is out of it’s control.  Because it makes that company less relevant to society.”

“They must find it difficult…Those who have taken authority as the truth. Rather than truth as the authority.

“An extraterrestrial visitor examining the differences among human societies would find those differences trivial compared to the similarities.  Our lives, our past and our future are tied to the sun, the moon and the stars…We humans have seen the atoms which constitute all of nature and the forces that sculpted this work…and we, who embody the soul eyes and ears and thoughts and feelings of the cosmos, have begun to wonder about it’s origins…  Star stuff contemplating the stars, organized collections of ten billion, billion, billion atoms, contemplating the evolution of nature, tracing that long path by which it arrived at  consciousness here on planet earth… Our loyalties are to the species and to the planet. Our obligation to survive and flourish is owed not just to ourselves, but also to that cosmos ancient and vast from which we all spring.  We are a species.  We are star stuff harvesting star light.”

Carl Sagan 1934-1996

Still don’t know?

“It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.” J. Krishnamurti

How about this one…

“Slavery is but the owning of labor and carries with it the care of laborers, while the European plan…is that capital shall control labor by controlling wages. This can be done by controlling the money. It will not do to allow the “Greenback” (Google said word + Abraham Lincoln)…we cannot control that.”

The Hazard Circular

Still nothing?

Go back to the days of Andrew Jackson for a moment, the 7th President of thesw here United States of America, a country, lest we forget, that championed the people over profit in the beginning. For it all started with King George III of England, demanding the colonists use the Central Bank of England, whereupon the power that be at that moment in ‘time’ could control labor as is the European model suggests.

Thus, we come to the early 19th Century and U.S. President Andrew Jackson, who struck down the notion of a national bank for he knew that if powerful, monied (banks) interests were to gain that foothold of perpetual debt, i.e. creating money (=debt), by loaning it out (9X principal), thus placing a heavy burden upon the American people, they would eventually become economic slaves to a inherently corrupt system– the monetary system itself.

In the system we currently have, one that is clearly not sustainable or efficient over the long haul, yes, with this current system we have, inflation is a constant. For the fact of the matter is the banks really control that whole system now.  Jackson’s efforts to keep big banks out of American politics eventually failed, for in 1913 the Federal Reserve Bank was established to do just that; create money out of debt. The application of interest however, becoming the most insidious aspect of this sad tale.  New money is always needed to help cover the perpetual deficit built into the system.  Caused by the need to pay interest. What this also means is that bankruptcy are literally built into said system, and there will always be poor pockets in society that get the short end of the stick.  Truly transferring wealth from the individual to the banks.

Gotta love that ‘fractional reserve practice’ you betcha!  What’s a fractional reserve practice?

“Only God can create value out of nothing”.

The fractional reserve policy perpetuated by the Federal Reserve, which has spread in practice to the great majority of banks in the world, is in fact a system of modern slavery.  Think about it, money is created (X9) out of debt and what do people do when they are in debt?  They submit to employment to pay it off. But if money can only be created out of loans, how can society ever be debt free like it was in 1834 with our great friend Mr. Jackson?  It can’t and that’s the point.

So one must ask, who am I really working for?

The BANKS!

That’s right folks, economic slavery. Just like it was back in the days of ‘yore, when that old rascal Paul Revere was, what was that Sarah P.?  Riding his horse throughout the land, firing off his gun, lightin’ up those gas lamps while warnin’ all that them British are coming, them British are coming?  The reason that brave American Revolutionary War was fought in the first place was to rid it’s people of economic slavery. And debt is the weapon used to enslave societies.  Interest is it’s primary ammunition.

The vast majority of people in this world have no idea this is going on.  The World Bank and the the International Monetary Fund, are both examples of this world domination over “the employee” working for peanuts while the elite keep raking it in (unprecedented growth of 278 percent; a ‘wage’ increase for the top–beginning in 1978–while the bottom 90 percent have seen wages remain completely stagnant).  “Making money” in a corrupt, morally bankrupt system of ‘revolving door debt’.

“There are two ways to conquer a nation.  One is by the sword, the other is by debt“.   John Adams 1735-1826

This emerging all powerful “Corporatocracy” is the one calling the shots presently.  For “they” control the media, advertising and our politicians because they finance them through their campaigns, either through their corporations or personal contributions that come out of their corporations.  They’re not elected, they don’t serve a limited term.  They don’t report to anyone.  At the very top of this entity, you really can’t tell if they are working for a corporation or the government, because they’re always moving back and forth.  I mean you’ve got a guy who is the president of a big construction company (Halliburton), and the next moment he’s Vice President of the United States (Dick Cheney); or a president who is in the oil business (George W. Bush).

In a way, our government is invisible, and it’s policies are carried out by corporations on one level or another and then again, the policies are forged by the corporations, and then presented (see A.L.E.C.), to the government, and then become government policies.

“So it’s an incredibly cozy relationship…”

This isn’t a conspiracy kind of thing.  These guys don’t have get together; plot to do things.  They’re all basically working under one primary assumption.  And that is to maximize profits regardless of the social and environmental costs.

This process of manipulation by the Corporatocracy through the use (abuse) of debt, bribery and political overthrow, is called “globalization”.

Just as the Federal Reserve keeps the American public in a position of indentured servitude through perpetual debt, inflation and interest, the World Bank and the IMF serve this role on a global scale. The basic scam is simple:  put a country in debt, either by it’s own indiscretion or through corrupting the leader of said country, then impose “conditionalities”, or “structural adjustment policies”, often consisting of the following…

Currency devaluation. When the value of currency drops, so does everything valued in it.  This makes indigenous resources available the predatory countries at a fraction of their worth.

Large funding cuts for social programs.   These usually include education and health care, compromising the integrity and health of a society.  Leaving the public vulnerable to exploitation.

Privatization of state owned enterprises. This means that socially important systems can be purchased and regulated by foreign corporations for profit.

Trade Liberalization. Or the opening up of the economy through removing any restrictions on foreign trade.   This allows for a number of abusive economic manifestations.  (please Google controversial “TPP”). Such as trans-national corporations bringing in their own mass produced products (i.e. China?), cutting the indigenous (US?), production and ruining local economies.

Inhumane Sweat Shops. Rampant horrible conditions where most high end American apparel is made.

Additionally, due to production deregulation, environmental destruction is perpetual. As a country’s resources are often exploited by indifferent corporations, while outputting large amounts of deliberate (please Google Ecuador + Chevron; oil giant buying “Texaco”, who, in order to save money, poured 9 times the Exxon Valdeez Alaska spill into the prestige Amazon Rain Forest–on purpose; to save money–destroying much of Ecuador’s country and overall economy, perhaps forever…), pollution.

Taken cumulatively, the integration of the world as a whole, particularly in terms of economic growth, globalization and the mythic “qualities” of the free market, capitalism represents a veritable “empire” in it’s own right…  Few have been able to escape the ’structural adjustments’ and ‘conditionalities‘ of the World Bank (US), the IMF or the arbitration’s of the World Trade Organization.

Jim Garrison, President; ‘State of the World’ world forum, said recently, “…those international financial institutions that, however inadequate, still determine what economic globalization means…  Such is the power of globalization that within our lifetime we are likely to see the integration, even if unevenly, of all national economies in the world into a single global free market system.”

The world is being taken over by a handful of business powers, who dominate the natural resources we need to live, while controlling the money we need to retain these sources.  The end result will be world monopoly.  Based not on human life, but on financial and corporate power.

And, as the inequality grows, naturally more people are becoming desperate.

“Greed and Competition are not the result of immutable human temperament…greed and fear of scarcity are in fact being created and amplified, the direct consequence is that we have to fight each other in order to survive.”        –Bernard Lietaer–       Founder of the EU currency system

Fasc-ism, Social-ism, Capital-ism, Commun-ism=money & labor (all monetary systems are the same)

Communist China is no less capitalistic than the United States.  The only difference is the degree by which the state influences an enterprise.  The reality is that monetary-ism, so to speak, is the true mechanism that guides all interests on the planet.  The most dominant variation of this monatary-ism is the free market system.  The fundamental perspective as put forth by early free-market economists like Adam Smith, is that self-interest and competition leads to social prosperity as the act of competition adds incentive, which motivates people to persevere.  However, what is not talked about is how a competition based economy invariably leads to strategic corruption, power and wealth consolidation, social stratification, technological paralysis, labor abuse and ultimately, a covert form of government dictatorship by the rich elite.

The word corruption is normally defined as moral perversion; depravity.  If a company dumps toxic waste into the ocean to save money, most people recognize this as corrupt behavior.  Because after all, be it dumping toxic waste, having a monopoly enterprise, or downsizing the work force; the motive it the same–PROFIT!

They are all degrees of the same self serving mechanism.  Which always puts the well being of people second to monetary gain.

Therefore, corruption is not some by-product of monatary-ism. It is at it’s very foundation.  And while most people acknowledge this on one level or another, the majority remain naive as to the broad ramifications of having such a selfish mechanism as the guiding mentality in society.

“We can either have a democracy in this country or we can have great wealth concentrated in the hands of the few, but we can’t have both.” Supreme Court Justice–Louis Brandeis

In 1913, when the “FED” began, a dollar would buy whatever it would.  But for whatever that dollar bought then, it would take $21 and 6 tenths of one to purchase the same item.  Thus, since the onset of the Federal Reserve Bank, the United States dollar has been ‘DE-valued’ to the tune of 96 percent in that 102 year period.

“Leaders in Washington D.C. should be at the forefront of technology.  The forefront of human studies.  The forefront of crime.  All the factors that shape human behavior.  You don’t have to write your congressman.  What kind of people are appointed to that job?  The question these congressmen should ask is not ‘how much does the project cost, but do we have the resources?” Jacques Fresco

Indeed, is it ‘high efficiency’ and what of it’s ’sustainability?’

Nothing produced in our profit based society is even remotely sustainable or efficient.  If it was, there wouldn’t be a multimillion dollar service industry for automobiles.  Nor would the average life span of most electronics be less than three months before they are obsolete.  Is it abundance?  Absolutely not, based on the law of ’supply and demand’ more is not always better.  More supply, less demand and thus, less profit. The fact is, efficiency and sustainability are enemies of profit.  To put it another way, it is scarcity that increases profits; not abundance in the slightest.

What is scarcity?  Based on keeping products (e.g. oil), “valuable”; thus, slowing production of said oil, only raises prices. Scarcity=Profit. Sustainability and abundance cannot co-exist with profit; those virtues go against the very nature of the structure.  Therefore, it is impossible to have a world without war or poverty.  It is impossible to continually advance technology to it’s most efficient and productive states.  And most dramatically, it is impossible to expect human beings to behave in truly ethical or decent ways.

U.S. President Andrew Jackson once said, “…the bold efforts the present bank (a former U.S. central bank), has made to control government…are but premonitions of the fate that awaits the American people should they be deluded into a perpetuation of this institution, or the establishment of another like it.”  circa 1835

“None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.”

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

This great nation and her people must address these issues soon, for the sustainability and efficiency (not to mention precious finite resources), of the one home we have at present–namely planet earth–cannot be ignored for much longer.  Like a vicious creditor, MOTHER NATURE will have the final word.

Have a great week ahead!

PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS!  Peace~M
