Know Your Enemy
I have posted on this recently ( One World Government Jan 13) but I want to elaborate a bit more. I have researched Conspiricy World some and find it fascinating.This was triggered when I was handed a self-published pamphlet the other day, by the same guy I described, who meets with our local social justice group. It is a strange amalgamation of religious, ideological, conspiricy theory propaganda starring Ollie North,the womens movement, micro-chip implants, the Kennedy assasination and the Federal Reserve, with a few digs thrown in at Noam Chomsky for effect.
So I started looking in to the Federal reserve bank and that whole insanely arcane world of monetary policy and it is no doubt a nefarious little sphere of securities and manipulations involving a good deal of real power.Plenty to be worried about, for sure. But my acquaintance is concerned that "Kennedy knew that if the silver-backed United States Notes ( he issued 'silver certificates') were widely circulated, they would have eliminated the demand for Federal Reserve Notes. This is a very simple matter of economics. The USN was backed by silver and the FRN was not backed by anything of intrinsic value." It is then implied the motive for Kennedy's assasination lay in his challenging "the powers that exist behind U.S. and world finance"(and for trying to get us out of Vietnam). Whatever.Would capitalism be hunky-dory if only we had gold backed currency?
My research turns up people like Eustice Mullins who published Secrets of the Federal Reserve in 1952, around the time he was also a spokesperson and resident scholar for the Aryan League. His conspiricy theories centered on Jews and in 1987 he moved it up a notch and wrote The Curse of Canaan:A Demonology of History, wherein an occult conspiricy founded in ancient Babylon controls the worlds monetary system, evidenced in Talmudic and Kabbalistic literature. Whatever. Then there is Aaron Russo, Bette Midlers old producer, Libertarian, tax protester and now maker of the film America: Freedom to Fascism. He doesn't believe in the constitutionality of tax collection and likens it's enforcement to a budding police state. Also leery of the Federal Reserve Bank and money in general and One World Government. Whatever. Im no fan of the Patriot Act but these peoples zealous anti-(psuedo)communism leads them to hate the concept of community or public trust.
Being a dissenter can put you in some wierd company. People looking for "simple" answers to explain injustice and inequality seem prone to these convoluted, Machiavellian intrigues and are just as much an obstacle (perhaps more) to speaking truth to power as those who are apathetic, complacent or firmly wed to the status quo. Ironically , his manifesto rails against "dumbing down the population".He thinks he is a guardian of freedom but he has no idea what freedom is. He warns us to "Know Your Enemy" but he has no way to analyze the distinction between friend and foe.
