The vampire bat is a horrifying pig-nosed wart of a creature which feasts in a manner that, believe it or not, is a rather familiar scene to those of us who closely study alternative economics.
After erratically flittering about in the sinking evening sky, it targets the warmth of a sleeping farm animal and latches onto it with its claws. Carefully, it inserts a fang into a vein dense region of the creature’s body, and laps away at the blood. Normally, the oblivious livestock are completely unaware and helpless to the attack. The tiny parasite does not inflict an immediately mortal blow to its host, but over time, disease and physical debilitation result.
The vampire has destroyed the animal, and,
pathetically, the animal has no idea.
The disgust many feel when considering the virulent feeding habits of the common mosquito or the slithering leech does nothing to compare to the utter gut churning revulsion I feel when studying the financial habits of banks like the Federal Reserve and the “too big to fails”.
They are without a doubt the most malignant form
of social cancer imaginable.
Let’s be honest; the typical American daytrading investor is a complete moron. They have absolutely no sense of the fundamentals of our financial structure nor the eccentric rules by which it operates. They only have the faintest inkling of the functions of the highly manipulated stock market. They foolishly believe that what little money they make today riding the wave of an illegitimate liquidity driven rally they will actually get to keep.
For them, stock investment is no different from
buying a scratch-off lotto ticket at a hillbilly gas station; it is a cheap
and tawdry game rife with failure but exciting to play, if only for a
fleeting guilt addled thrill.
But, of course, an ending is painfully
inevitable. The more we indulge, the more it takes down the road to satisfy
us. We become an addict nation, riding the chemical wave of a pharmaceutical
roller coaster fed by the opiates of fiat and fantasy.
An overwhelming spectrum of solutions has been
presented over the past 3-4 years, and each one has given the stock market a
little push towards the green, so what’s the problem?
The EU as an experiment is an utter disaster.
Once the jewel of the open border dynamic and a bastion of the “merits” of
globalization, the economic union has been exposed as a kind of waxwork
museum; a tourist trap curiosity filled with illusions of life, but rather
hollow upon closer inspection.
The only reason the system was able to function
at all was due to the imaginary wealth of the toxic derivative framework
which now no longer exists.
Artificially tying together societies by forcing them to financially harmonize is, in my view, a criminal act of collectivism. Now that this crime is being unveiled for all the world to see, though, the corrupt governments and banking puppeteers of Europe have suggested even MORE of the same!
That’s right… their solution to the collapse of
the EU is a harmonization not just of finance, but of politics and law.
single governing body which would dictate every nuance of the union.
As the economic situation grows more dire, the end result will always be a reduction in the common citizen’s standard of living. In harmonization, It is far easier to make everyone equally poor than it is to make them equally rich.
With a single, narrow minded leadership,
especially one that is completely unaccountable to the people, the EU will
become the most fragile makeshift empire in history, and a model for a
global government that hopefully will never exist.
Let’s make this clear:
I’ll say it again; the debts created by major banks have not been paid. They have been handed to you, and your children.
Forget the December Santa Rally and the temporary holiday job boost. Nothing has changed since 2008. The process of transferring private debt into public obligation is a tool of economic vampires.
The utility in this is obvious. A program of wealth transference has the ability to prolong full collapse while at the same time giving the impression of stability. The dollar itself characterizes this conflict. The currency has been overprinted since the credit crisis began by some estimates in the ten’s of trillions.
Not only has it been devalued to temporarily stave off a purging in the U.S., but now also in Europe. And yet, the dollar index, which supposedly measures the Greenback’s global value, has spiked. We are lulled into a sense of safety by such arbitrary measurements, but our buying power is being subversively annihilated.
In less than a year’s time, those who dove into the dollar as a safe haven will discover their bones picked clean by predatory banks and hidden flesh eating inflation.
Count on it…
For central bankers, each fiat currency is a stepping stone to something more sinister. They are disposable. They are expendable. Like toothbrushes. Yes…even the dollar. And in this rests the key to economic control.
A currency is a symbol of trade and labor; if you can create and destroy that symbol at will, then you can dominate trade and labor.
Through a mere piece of paper, you manipulate
the very breath of social life. No one should be given that kind of power
without uncompromising transparency and constant public governance, but the
Federal Reserve is free from both.
Any solution that purports to undo the crisis by
doing more of the same was probably devised by an economic vampire.
Any trade system that depends upon good faith in ones and zeros traveling across a network of machines that can be hacked or rendered useless by collapse is doomed. We have already tasted the danger of digital through the debauchery of credit cards.
Why tempt fate even further?
The SEC is given thousands of potential
investigations a year to pursue, but rarely do they ever follow through, and
when they do, it’s to throw the angry masses a
Bernie Madoff or two; an act
of insincere appeasement in light of much greater fraud.
Therefore, the only solution that makes any sense whatsoever as far as regulation is to wipe the slate clean entirely:
I have heard it said that the philosophy of our economic system is the problem. This is an ignorant cop-out. The principals of free markets are not the issue; the men who abuse them and diminish them, on the other hand, are.
Anyone who suggests that we as a country should
focus our anger on the idea of the system rather than the men behind the
misuse of that system is, without a doubt, an economic vampire.
Most people don’t like to think about that sort
of thing. This is why global banks and their proponents have been able to
maintain the recovery magic act for the past few years (just barely), and it
is why the useless concepts they put forward are still given public
consideration. We WANT to be sold on the proposal of an easy way out.
If average people are forced to exert all the
effort, and an elite few reap all the substantial benefits, this
contradiction outweighs any assertion of practicality. It is not worth our
time, nor our energy, to shadowbox reality. Unfortunately, this is all we
have been doing as a nation
Without a doubt, a collapse will be used as a rationalization for totalitarianism.
If we do not make the hard decisions now, and take it upon ourselves to construct our own localized economies separate and insulated from the mainstream, we will, indeed, find ourselves one day cowering in the dark of a long drawn night infested with fiends, and desperate enough to actually ask them for help.
They will be happy to give it, at a very bloody price…
