Basically, the thing which has always puzzled me is that if we remove exhortations to good, e.g. the Christian or, say, Buddhist messages, then does Man settle into a happy existence, free of malice and with everything going well from that point forward?  Does it hell.  It always goes downhill into the grimmest and darkest scenarios.

Why? Schiller Institute:

Oligarchy

At the center of oligarchy is the idea that certain families are born to rule as an arbitrary elite, while the vast majority of any given population is condemned to oppression, serfdom, or slavery. During most of the past 2,500 years, oligarchs have been identified by their support for the philosophical writings of Aristotle and their rejection of the epistemology of Plato.

Aristotle asserted that slavery is a necessary institution, because some are born to rule and others to be ruled. He also reduced the question of human knowledge to the crudest sense certainty and perception of “facts.” Aristotle’s formalism is a means of killing human creativity, and therefore represents absolute evil. This evil is expressed by the bestialist view of the oligarchs that human beings are the same as animals.

Oligarchs identify wealth purely in money terms, and practice usury, monetarism, and looting at the expense of technological advancement and physical production. Oligarchs have always been associated with the arbitrary rejection of true scientific discovery and scientific method in favor of open anti-science or more subtle obscurantist pseudo-science.

This is touched on in the next post.

The oligarchy has believed for millennia that the Earth is overpopulated; the oligarchical commentary on the Trojan War was that this conflict was necessary in order to prevent greater numbers of mankind from oppressing “Mother Earth.” They’ve constantly stressed race and racial characteristics, often as a means for justifying slavery.

In international affairs, oligarchs recommend such methods as geopolitics, understood as the method of “divide and conquer,” which lets one power prevail by playing its adversaries one against the other. Oligarchical policy strives to maintain a balance of power among such adversaries for its own benefit, but this attempt always fails in the long run and leads to new wars.

The essence of oligarchism is summed up in the idea of the empire, in which an elite identifying itself as a master race rules over a degraded mass of slaves or other oppressed victims. If oligarchical methods are allowed to dominate human affairs, they always create a breakdown crisis of civilization, with economic depression, war, famine, plague, and pestilence.

Examples of this are the Fourteenth-century Black Plague and the Thirty Years War (1618-48), both of which have links to Venetian intelligence.

The post-industrial society and the derivatives crisis in our own time have brought about the potential for a new collapse of civilization. This crisis can only be reversed by repudiating in practice the axioms of the oligarchical mentality.

A pillar of the oligarchical system is the family fortune, or fondo, as it is called in Italian. The continuity of the family fortune which earns money through usury and looting is often more important than the biological continuity across generations of the family that owns the fortune.

Some history

The long and tortuous path of peoples through history sees the Khazars in the Holy Land and part of the Canaanites eventually in northern Italy, adopting the name “Sepharvaim” for deceptive purposes. They later became known as Venetians, and by marrying into European royalty and aristocracy, the “black nobility.”

In the pre-Christian world around the Mediterranean, oligarchical political forces included Babylon in Mesopotamia. The “whore of Babylon” condemned in the Apocalypse of St. John the Divine, is not a mystical construct, but a very specific cartel of oligarchical families. Other oligarchical centers included Hiram of Tyre and the Phoenicians. The Persian Empire was an oligarchy. In the Greek world, the center of oligarchical banking and intelligence was the Temple of Apollo at Delphi, whose agents included Lycurgus of Sparta and, later, Aristotle.

In Venice, the largest fondo was the endowment of the Basilica of St. Mark, which was closely associated with the Venetian state treasury, and which absorbed the family fortunes of nobles who died without heirs. This fondo was administered by the procurers of St. Mark, whose position was one of the most powerful under the Venetian system.

Around this central fondo were grouped the individual family fortunes of the great oligarchical families, such as the Mocenigo, the Cornaro, the Dandolo, the Contarini, the Morosini, the Zorzi, and the Tron. When the Venetian oligarchy transferred many of its families and assets to northern Europe, the Venetian fondi provided the nucleus of the great Bank of Amsterdam, which dominated Europe during the Seventeenth century, and of the Bank of England, which became the leading bank of the Eighteenth century.

Venice was the enemy of Charlemagne. Charlemagne’s son, King Pepin of Italy, tried unsuccessfully to conquer the Venetian lagoon. Charlemagne was forced to recognize Venice as a part of the eastern or Byzantine Empire, under the protection of the Emperor Nicephorus. Venice was never a part of Western Civilization.

Over the next four centuries, Venice developed as a second capital of the Byzantine Empire through marriage alliances with certain Byzantine dynasties and conflicts with the Holy Roman Empire based in Germany. The Venetian economy grew through usury and slavery. By 1082, the Venetians had tax-free trading rights in the entire Byzantine Empire.

The Venetians were one of the main factors behind the Crusades against the Muslim power in the eastern Mediterranean. In the Fourth Crusade of A.C.E. 1202, the Venetians used an army of French feudal knights to capture and loot Constantinople, the Orthodox Christian city which was the capital of the Byzantine Empire.

During the 1200s, the Venetians, now at the apex of their military and naval power, set out to create a new Roman Empire with its center at Venice. They expanded into the Greek islands, the Black Sea, and the Italian mainland. They helped to defeat the Hohenstaufen rulers of Germany and Italy. Venetian intelligence assisted Genghis Khan as he attacked and wiped out powers that had resisted Venice.

The Venetians caused the death of the poet and political figure Dante Alighieri, who developed the concept of the modern sovereign nation-state in opposition to the Venetian plans for empire. A series of wars with Genoa led later to the de facto merger of Venice and Genoa. The Venetian bankers, often called Lombards, began to loot many parts of Europe with usurious loans.

Henry III of England in the years after 1255 became insolvent after taking huge Lombard loans to finance foreign wars at 120-180 percent interest. These transactions created the basis for the Venetian Party in England. When the Lombard bankers went bankrupt because the English failed to pay, a breakdown crisis of the European economy ensued. This led to a new collapse of European civilization, including the onset of the Black Plague, which depopulated the continent.

In the midst of the chaos, the Venetians encouraged their ally Edward III of England, to wage war against France in the conflict that became the Hundred Years War (1339-1453), which hurled France into chaos before St. Joan of Arc defeated the English. This was then followed by the Wars of the Roses in England. As a result of Venetian domination, the Fourteenth century had become a catastrophe for civilization.

In the midst of the crisis of the 1300’s, the friends of Dante and Petrarch laid the basis for the Italian Golden Renaissance, which reached its culmination with Nicolaus of Cusa, Pope Pius II, and the Medici-sponsored Council of Florence of 1439. The Venetians fought the Renaissance with a policy of expansion on the Italian mainland, or terra firma, which brought them to the outskirts of Milan. More fundamentally, the Venetians promoted the pagan philosophy of Aristotle against the Christian Platonism of the Florentines.

Around AD1400, European power centers coalesced into two camps: the Ghibellines, who supported the Hohenstaufen family, and the Guelphs, from Welf, the German prince who competed with Frederick for control of the Holy Roman Empire. The Pope allied himself with the Guelphs. All modern European history stems directly from the struggle between these two powers.

The Guelphs are also called the Neri, Black Guelphs, or Black Nobility, and supported William of Orange in his seizure of the throne of England, which eventually resulted in the formation of the Bank of England and the East India Company.

When Cusa and his friends succeeded in reuniting the Roman Catholic Church and the Orthodox and other eastern churches at the Council of Florence, the Venetians tried to sabotage this result.

The Venetians tried to use the power of the new nation-states, especially France, to crush Milan and allow further Venetian expansion. But ambassadors for the king of France and the Austrian emperor met at Cambrai in December 1508 and agreed to create a European league for the dismemberment of Venice.

An immediate target of the Venetians had always been Milan and a broader target – the papacy.

The reformation as a ploy

The leading figure of the Protestant Reformation, the first Protestant in modern Europe, was Venice’s Cardinal Gasparo Contarini, who was also the leader of the Catholic Counter-Reformation. Contarini was a pupil of the Padua Aristotelian Pietro Pomponazzi, who denied the immortality of the human soul. Contarini pioneered the Protestant doctrine of salvation by faith alone, with no regard for good works of charity.

He organized a group of Italian Protestants called gli spirituali, including oligarchs like Vittoria Colonna and Giulia Gonzaga. Contarini’s networks encouraged and protected Martin Luther and later John Calvin of Geneva. Contarini sent his neighbor and relative Francesco Zorzi to England to support King Henry VIII’s plan to divorce Catherine of Aragon.

As the Counter-Reformation advanced, the Contarini networks split into two wings –  the pro-Protestant spirituali, who later evolved into the giovani and who serviced growing networks in France, Holland, England, and Scotland. The other wing were the zelanti, oriented toward repression and the Inquisition, and typified by Pope Paul IV Caraffa. The zelanti evolved into the oligarchical party called the vecchi, who serviced Venetian networks in the Vatican and the Catholic Hapsburg dominions. The apparent conflict of the two groups was orchestrated to serve Venetian projects.

Pause for breath

The obvious criticism here is that this seems to be giving inordinate credit for influence to the Venetians when there were homegrown oligarchs and tyrants in all the nation states, all pursuing their own dreams of expansion and conquest.

This is so but three factors have to be born in mind – the Lombards who were financing all European powers at the time against one another, the Papacy which meant [until Henry VIII] that dictums were coming constantly from Italy and the church had had, for centuries, a most powerful grip on the hearts and minds of men and women all over Europe and then there was the intrigue, the intelligence services and the intermarrying into the great families of Europe by the Venetians themselves.

Henry’s marriage to Catherine illustrates in itself the extent to which the English monarchy was in no way head-in-the-sand and isolationist.  Look at how the Reformation came to England.

Exactly who were and who are these intermarried families conencted to the Venetians?

The old-line ruling families who believe that they have the right to rule the world because they are descended from the emperors of the ancient Roman and so-called ‘holy’ Roman Empires consist of 13-15 ‘blue blood’ families, which include: Rothschild; Kuhn; Loeb; Lehman; Rockefeller; Sach; Warburg; Lazard; Seaf; Goldman; Schiff; Morgan; Schroeder; Bush and Harriman.

Other names are: the Giustiniani family, of Rome and Venice who trace their lineage to the Emperor Justianian; Sir Jocelyn Hambro of Hambros (Merchant) Bank; Pierpaolo Luzzatti Fequiz, whose lineage dates back six centuries to the most ancient Luzzatos, of Venice, and Umberto Ortolani of the ancient Black Nobility family of the same name.

Other old Venetian Black Nobility and board members of ASG and RAS are the Doria family, the financiers of the Spanish Hapsburgs, Elie de Rothschild of the French Rothschild family, Baron August von Finck (Finck, the second richest man in Germany now deceased), Franco Orsini Bonacassi of the ancient Orsini that traces its lineage to an ancient Roman senator of the same name, the Alba family whose lineage dates back to the great Duke of Alba, and Baron Pierre Lambert, a cousin of the Belgian Rothschild family.

Has anyone ever stopped to think what the Holy Roman Empire actually meant?

Back to the story

The power of the Guelphs would extend through the Italian financial centers to the north of France in Lombardy. Lombard in German means “deposit bank”, and the Lombards were bankers to the entire Medieval world. They would later transfer operations north to Hamburg, then to Amsterdam and finally to London.

The Guelphs would start the slave trade to the colonies. The Guelphs, in order to aid their control of finance and politics, would perpetuate gnostic cults which eventually developed into the Rosicrucians, Unitarians, Fabian Society and the World Council of Churches. The East India company, together with John Stuart Mill, would finance the University of London. A friend of Mill, historian George Grote, a founder of London University donated £6000 for the study of “mental health”, which began the worldwide “mental health” movement.

Banca Commerciale d’Italia, Banca Privata, Banco Ambrosiano, the Netherlands Bank, Barclays Bank, Banco del Colombia, Banco de Ibero-America. Of special interest is Banca del la Svizzeria Italiana (BSI) – since it handles flight capital investments to and from the United States – primarily in dollars and US bonds – located and isolated in “neutral” Lugano, the flight capital center for the Venetian Black Nobility. Lugano is not in Italy or in Switzerland, and is a kind of twilight zone for shady flight capital operations. George Ball, who owns a large block of stock in BSI, is a prominent “insider” and the bank’s US representative.

In the  1822 Treaty of Verona (between Austria, France, Prussia and Russia) the Jesuits agreed to smash the US Constitution and suppress the freedom of the US. Their methods included destroying free speech, destroying and suppressing the press, universal censorship, sustaining the cooperation of the Pope and clergy to use religion to help keep nations in passive obedience and financing wars against countries with representative governments.

The monarchs who signed this treaty were ultimately deposed. Most of these families are very wealthy and may be more powerful today than when they sat upon thrones. They are known collectively as the Black Nobility. Privately these families refuse to recognize any right to rule except their own. The fact that this treaty was made long ago does not mean it is void. The treaty was placed in the Congressional Record on April 25, 1916 by Senator Owen.

Today

Italy and in particular, Venice, is very important strategically because 1.  it is the closest to the middle-east and 2. it is a gateway for drugs entering Europe from Iran and Lebanon.

After the Club of Rome was established in 1968, a body which is from this black nobility, all sorts of things began in a socialist manner – the Paris uprising, the Red Brigades, the fall of various regimes and the Aldo Moro case, which investigators found had old families somehow interested in the issue for not entirely clear reasons.

The Club of Rome’s Peccei headed the Atlantic Institute’s Economic Council for three decades while he was the Chief Executive Officer for Giovanni Agnellis’ Fiat Motor Company. Agnelli, a member of an ancient Italian family, playing a leading role in development projects in the Soviet Union. The Club of Rome is an umbrella organization for Anglo-American financiers and the old families of Europe, particularly in London, Venice and Genoa.

Hence the reference in a previous post to the Queen sailing near Venice on occasions in the Britannia.

Their key role, according to the 90s article I got it from, is to create and manage economic recessions and eventual depressions. Social convulsions on a global scale, followed by depressions, are the only real way to create “welfare” recipients of the future and a series of nanny states.  That’s the long term function, meanwhile cleaning up in the financial markets as they go along.

One of their members, Etienne D’Avignon, was assigned the task of collapsing the steel industry in the US and as the Treaty of Verona showed, the European families have quite an interest in the U.S.A. and vice versa – hence the congressional record entry.

More difficult to establish is Jacques Soustelle, financed by the Swiss Oltramaire family, who ran one of the assassination centres from Confederation Helvetica.  Another interesting snippet, to me, was Richard Gardner marrying into the old families in Italy and providing yet more connections between Italy and the States.

This is not all about money.  It’s also about culture and science and this conflict plays a huge role in the major societal movements in modern history.

All European history since the Fifteenth century within Europe and globally, has been dominated by the cultural conflict between the radiated influence of the Renaissance and the opposing, Venice-launched force of the so-called ‘Enlightenment.’

Finally

This is the power up against which we, the lowly Davids of the Albion Alliance world are trying to pit ourselves, our power base only the legitimacy of the people themselves.  Next post – the assault on Science.

    Oh Boy……..I am just going to read on.

  2. January 10, 2010 at 16:50

    How do you find the time to research all this?

  3. January 10, 2010 at 18:58

    “How do you find the time to research all this?”

    Evidently by not bothering to read Aristotle. Interestingly it is the equal liberty that Mr Higham promotes that entails radical evil in the sense of the radical privation of good; for, if the condition of equal liberty were to obtain, as demanded by democratists, then each unit of the whole must be exactly equal in influence to every other: there must be no individual differences from which any political advantage or oligarchy can arise, as does inevitably happen otherwise. In other words, equal liberty, otherwise known as pure democracy or communism, entails the total eradication of personhood. Note that this is merely a logical entailment from the concept of equal liberty, and not a claim that this entailment will be entirely fulfilled in practice, though the trend thereto is most destructive. Oligarchy is simply the principle of all government, and where there are differences conferring advantages, there will be oligarchies. Aristotle was right to say that some are born to rule and others to be ruled, at least in the sense that some are fit to rule and others are not. It is an understanding that almost everyone shared before the utopian and totalitarian ideology of democracy widely performed its lobotomies, whereupon almost everyone began to be startled and offended by the simplest truths. Furthermore, since we understand by the iron-law of oligarchy that only a few can rule, and that the vast majority must be ruled, we ought then to ask how best that rulership might be chosen or effected. Certainly the vicious or the cretinous are not fit to rule even themselves, let alone others, and we need no Aristotle to tell us that fact. But, against all this, why indulge in fantasies which entail radical evil for their fulfilment? If, however, you say that you are not after all in favour of equal liberty or pure democracy, despite the import of your words, but rather that you prefer so-called liberal or parliamentary democracy, then you speak implicitly in favour of the oligarchic and anti-democratic principle in government. The trouble is that such demo-oligarchic regimes, explicitly promotive of, and informed by, the egalitarian-libertarian fantasies of democracy, are not only driven to become limitless regimes, but also to become highly mendacious and manipulative ones in the process to that end. Still, and at least for now, these regimes do provide us with that wonderful spectacle of those men called libertarians who swear much about them and yet who continue to promote their existence alongside the ideologies and the social conditions which make them inevitable. There is some general truth in the saying that a people gets the government that it deserves.

    there must be no individual differences from which any political advantage or oligarchy can arise

    This has zero to do with the Venetian oligarchical gameplan and to suggest that there would be no individualism without oligarchy is the diametric opposite of the reality- without an oligarchy of the Venetian model, individualism can flourish.

    The oligarch, by the Venetian definition, wishes to employ the bureaucracy to ensure uniformity, the communist principle of which you write, Deogolwulf. This is the delusion that they have perpetrated – that an oligarchy is part of a recognition of individual differences – in fact it is precisely the opposite in the manner in which the Venetians have pursued it.

    Oligarchies in realpolitik have always produced enslavement and suppression of individuality. This is not praising democracy in any way – simply addressing the Venetian oligarchical model.

    despite the import of your words, but rather that you prefer so-called liberal or parliamentary democracy, then you speak implicitly in favour of the oligarchic and anti-democratic principle in government.

    There are two separate issues here – ivory tower political theory and what happens in reality. The essential problem with political nd economic theory is that it does not take into account the bloodymindedness and indifference to humanity intrinsic to the Venetian oligarchical concept.

    One can support classical liberalism but that does not take into account the skewing of the political arena by what I term “malevolent” forces and yes, I do consider the model to stem from evil but that’s another discussion in itself. It’s all very well to have a theory of politics but it “ain’t gonna work” unless it has built into it how to circumvent people like the Committee of 300.

    Any discussion of politics which does not recognize all the players in the game is on a hiding to nothing.

    The trouble is that such demo-oligarchic regimes, explicitly promotive of, and informed by, the egalitarian-libertarian fantasies of democracy, are not only driven to become limitless regimes, but also to become highly mendacious and manipulative ones in the process to that end.

    No argument there. Much of what you write is sound uncommon sense.

  5. January 10, 2010 at 23:30

    I never said it had anything to do with “the Venetian oligarchical gameplan”, whatever that is. I was pointing out that all governments are oligarchical by their very nature, and that utopian fantasies of equal liberty to the contrary of that reality entail radical evil in concept and are terribly destructive in practice. I am not sure why you have brought up individualism, since I was not speaking in favour of it. Individualism prefigues collectivism. What better material is there for a bureaucracy to work on than an atomised mass of individuals that can be manipulated into any shape in uniformity with expedient needs and aims? Individualism has largely destroyed the social fabric which was highly resistant to artificial shaping. The bureaucrat-collectivist now has the near-ideal material for his work. Furthermore, as any good Aristotelian can tell you, individualism goes against natural law: man is a social animal and cannot achieve any degree of personal freedom in the absence of a nurturing social milieu. In its absence, he can become only a brute. In sight of the great weakening and large-scale destruction of this social milieu through individualistic ideologies, is it any wonder that we now have so many mumbling half-witted brutes today who are fit only to be slaves? Individualism never gave birth to a freeman, only to brutes without self-control, and where there is no self-control, external control is necessary, a dull point which Edmund Burke made clear two hundred years ago, but which still most people refuse to recognise because they prefer the shiney and promissory trinkets of emancipatory ideologies.

    “This is the delusion that they have perpetrated – that an oligarchy is part of a recognition of individual differences – in fact it is precisely the opposite in the manner in which the Venetians have pursued it.”

    Have they perpetrated such a delusion? It seems that most people express a belief in equal liberty and are antipathetic to oligarchy, just like you. Perhaps you misunderstood what I said: that all governments are necessarily oligarchical and that the only way to achieve equal liberty and destroy oligarchy is to destroy personhood itself. This is merely a logical point drawn from the relevant concepts.

    “Oligarchies in realpolitik have always produced enslavement and suppression of individuality.”

    With such expressions, the Marxists got there before you. Furthermore, distrustful of mere reason, they even tried (or at least pretended to try) a practical experiment to bring about equal liberty and ended up with the most powerful oligarchies ever seen. I do not expect that non-Marxist egalitarian-libertarians would do any better. Doubtless it would be done with more swearing.

    “There are two separate issues here – ivory tower political theory and what happens in reality.”

    You may be surprised to hear that I am quite interested in what happens in reality, whether it is to be glimpsed from an “ivory-tower political theory” or not. (I don’t recall introducing one.)

    “One can support classical liberalism but that does not take into account the skewing of the political arena by what I term “malevolent” forces”

    Happily I don’t support classical liberalism.

    “No argument there.”

    So if you agree, why on earth do you keep promoting the democratic ideology?

  6. January 10, 2010 at 23:52

    There are two separate issues here – ivory tower political theory and what happens in reality. The essential problem with political nd economic theory is that it does not take into account the bloodymindedness and indifference to humanity intrinsic to the Venetian oligarchical concept.

    Agreed there are two separate issues. Theory is great on paper and we all know how things should work (whichever option we think is best) but ultimately there are far too many selfish greedy (corruptible) people about who will ultimately be self seeking.

  7. January 11, 2010 at 00:34

    To oppose the form of oligarchy which rules, for example, Europe, is not to go the other way and promote egalitarianism – that was never mentioned in the posts. There are many other elements you’ve brought in here, DW but they still do not negate the anti-intellectual and bestial nature of the mediocratizing Venetian style of oligarchy.

    The Marxists may have got there before me but they replaced one with another even worse. The problem is not the oligarchical form in itself but its exponents at a given time.

    It seems that most people express a belief in equal liberty and are antipathetic to oligarchy, just like you. Perhaps you misunderstood what I said.

    Perhaps, DW, you misunderstood what I said.

    Even democracy could be good in the hands of the wise and I have been attacked here for such elitist thinking before, which is why the notion of egalitarianism and your humble corespondent having more than a nodding acquaintance brings a smile.

    Sovereignty also need not equal democracy. It can mean to be able to determine one’s fate by one’s own actions. The notion though of the blunt, money oriented buffoons of the ruling elite, as it is currently constituted, determining the fate of those with more than half a brain is, frankly, beyond the pale.

    Also, I suppose there are just things I find anathema, such as deliberate depopulation. There’s a gulf between believing there are far too many people to sustain life on this planet and actually looking at measures to remedy the situation.

    Excellent research and article – thankyou!
    IMO the discussion here about different ideologies and political systems is a little bogged down in academe. All of these systems rely on monetarism and materialism to function. The only non corruptable systems that will allow humanity to move beyond the issues of equality and personal freedom, are decentralised eductional, technology based societies. A sense of worth can be judged by knowledge and creativity, usefulness and productivity to each other – not a centralised government pile of posessions. There are utopian models like the Venus Project and books like Schumacer’s Small Is Beautiful that describe this. Humanity needs a paradigm shift to achieve these, or a minor disaster.
    DW – ‘Furthermore, since we understand by the iron-law of oligarchy that only a few can rule, and that the vast majority must be ruled’
    Are you not aware of the current state of the nature/nurture dicussion? Or DNA has very little to do with who we are. IMO There is no such thing as human nature – it is all about how we are nurtured. Have faith in mankind to recreate himself in any mould.

  9. January 12, 2010 at 10:01

    “Are you not aware of the current state of the nature/nurture dicussion?”

    I am aware that in some circles it is the subject of fantasy and wilful ignorance.

    “There is no such thing as human nature – it is all about how we are nurtured. Have faith in mankind to recreate himself in any mould.”

    Ah. That old drivel. Try bringing up a pot-plant in a nice middle-class home and see if it turns out to be a lawyer. This kind of nonsense has been around since the Enlightenment. You might have noticed that it didn’t work out well, but then plans based on impossibilities and idiocies never do. And what will the model for the “New Man” be this time? An amoeba perhaps? At least that way you can get closest to your dream of equality.

  10. January 12, 2010 at 11:31

    That wasn’t me, Deogolwulf. My views are in the post on Deogolwulf entitled: “The current struggle against uncommon sense.”

    DW It’s a shame that you feel you have to make your points with derogatory remarks. Clearly your obsession with equality stems from a deep feeling of insecurity and a need to reassure your self of a certain status to which you aspire. Your opinions are as repulsive to me as no doubt mine are to you – the difference is I am able to debate a matter rather than just vent my spleen, (although I’m quite capable of this – and if you make one more derogatory remark in reference to one of my comments you evidence of this).
    So you are quite happy with the existing power structure in the industrialised world are you? If not how would you change it? – lets see if you are capable of vision as well as critique.

  12. January 12, 2010 at 20:34

    I’m not capable of joining in the intellectual debate.
    I only know that the mongols obliterated the civilizations that were developing in the Middle East and Eastern Europe and left a gaping hole to be filled by oppression and superstition. And condemned entire peoples to centuries of misery that have yet to end. And that St. Mark’s was literally built on the bodies of Christian slaves. As your research shows the evil continued far beyond that and still continues even now. Debating fine points of philosophy only obscures the vileness.

    TO keep it very simple:

    Back around 1,400 to 1,300 B.C. we had the major world leaders fail namely Egypt and the Hittites fail and others by their armies being destroyed by flood and sickness. That set up the very first dark ages of about 600 years.

    Then we had honest money by…

    Then around 600 A.D. the major world leaders and their armies failed namely Rome and her allies by financial debasement and other complex social situations. That set up the second dark ages of about 600 years.

    The around 1200 A.D. Venice started up another honest money which extended with mild depressions until now. (P.S. loved the article and the research with the direction to sources)

    Today:

    It appears that with 2,000 trillions in derivatives worldwide we have “rhymed with Rome” in destroying the fiat currency. Now that’s where I really appreciated the article for it shows that the powers to be have a Islamic friendly sitting on the American throne today. After all he just canned a general, right?

    I expect G30 to all fail within a few years and form up a worldwide digital currency to make the third DARK AGES very interesting and rather fitting like a glove with many Books in the King James Bible.

    So this is how it all works.
    Socialist gov’t gets into deliberate debt borrowing beyond tax revenues.
    Seek help from (Wall Street) financiers to hide the debt to enter EU.
    Socialist EU deliberately creates no structure to aid sovereign defaults, after acting against advice when insisting on one interest rate throughout. Bailout ultimately cobbled together between EU and IMF, but insanely inadequate…most banks in EU manage to transfer insolvency to state level, and ECB buys their underwater crap, trashing its own balance sheet in the process.

    Still not enough, Greek debt interest rates move higher, beyond Greek ability to service.

    Greek nation sells off Greek assets to help pay down debt.

    Purchasers of Greek assets likely to be either the parties who created the original loans to the politicians who wished to buy votes with ever more gifts to voters, without any thought to creating an efficient economy, …or to the parties who issued OTC instruments to hide the debt levels on Greek qualified entry to the EU… or both.

    So, Europe is in trouble, indeed the world is in trouble.
    Global finance, as exemplified by the Anglos centred in NY and London, is dying. Dying from its inherent fraud, with frantic manipulations in order to maintain control ever more fraudulent and obvious.
    There is a split between the G8 and the G20. The G12, (20-8) regard the west as in terminal decline, and seek a new design for the financial world.
    The G8, mainly the Anglos, centred in London and NY, seek to push the can further down the road, using the SDR from the IMF. The support for the SDR is derived from a basket of currencies, the problem being that those currencies are from insolvent states, indebted beyond all logic, and render the paper SDR as being more mere irredeemable paper debt masquerading as money. More Keynesian lunacy, expandable at whim, encouraging more debt creation and governmental profligacy.
    Behind the scenes in Europe, effort centred in France and Germany is concentrated on the creation of a 2 tier Europe. European leaders are worried that any further defaults among the PIGS, or satellites will prove beyond their ability to bail-out. French and German banks hold approx $750Bn and $500Bn Spanish debt, respectively. Spanish banks have in the main not written down to any extent their freehold loan books, nor have they increased the balance sheet reserves in anticipation of such, – they are in denial. European bank stress tests will be fudged, just as US stress tests were.
    A firewall must be constructed to protect from the imminent implosion of the PIGS
    The 2 tiers will comprise:-
    Tier 1 Germany, France, the Netherlands, Austria, Denmark, and Finland
    Tier 2 Others.
    The Tier 1 nations are frustrated by being attached to the wrecked PIGS nations, their politicians have lost electoral support, they seek alternative solutions as all their economies are slowly dying, dragged down by their southern neighbours.
    The 2 tier approach is NOT a solution, but a step away from centralisation.
    The 2 tier approach serves mainly to develop the psychology for reform with substance.

    —————————————————————————————————

    Germany is walking a tight-rope.

    She co-operates with the Anglo finance centres, but sickened by the many trillion international mortgage paper fraud and OTC derivative attacks on nations debt, all-on financial warfare, German consultants advised Dubai and Swiss authorities to remove their gold from US depositories at the NY Fed, to reduce the leverage possibilities in the PM suppression global fraud practised in NY and London. She intends to lead a select group of viable nations into a new “Northern Currency”. Now German parties are the primary advocates for, designers and engineers to, this new currency.

    As the $ and £ fall in international usage, great wealth will leave these shores, the £ will fall in international purchasing power. Cameron knows this, – this is why he refused a referendum, but also why he is taking the current actions via the new “budget proposals”. They are not yet enough to enable a stronger £ to be acceptable for inclusion in the “Northern Currency”, (not helped by that moron Browns sale of UK Gold reserves), more moves must be announced shortly! He is playing a desperate game…knowing of these moves but at the same time appeasing the US, perhaps as a plan B should his future play for inclusion in the “Northern Currency” fail. Either way, time is very limited, and the economic turn around required is vast. Should the US learn of these plans formally, there is no doubt that the £ will suffer Rating Agency, and Wall Street attrition. At the same time, Cameron must control the BBC on one hand, in order to bring the electorate on board, and many UK banks and perhaps the LBMA, links to US dealings on the other….a difficult balancing act as it interferes with vast old-money power structures. Doubtless the “Old Money” holders will already be aware of these intentions, and will be positioned to profit from the final picture.

    I wonder if it is achievable by anyone, let alone Cameron, in the short time left, given the state of this nation bequeathed by the previous moronic gov’t.

    The “Northern Currency” will include Germany, Holland, Finland, Norway, (if she will join) Sweden, Denmark, Russia, (and probably many old satellites of the USSR). The vast commodity riches of Russia will complement the manufacturing abilities of Germany. The cheap labour forces of Poland may well ensure Polish entry. Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, remain a question mark.
    The currency will be gold backed, although the percentage is a question…it may also be oil backed, although that would prove to be a problem, as oil is an expendable consumable, eventually depleted, where gold is stored, so stores value as a currency should. It will be an International currency used to purchase oil, and in this respect negotiations with OPEC are in hand. OPEC nations, or at least the Gulf States plus Saudi, are in the process of creating the structures to launch their own regional currency, so presumably in the future, trading ranges for these currencies will be set…or be fully floating reflecting economic circumstances.

    France wishes to join, and is lobbying furiously behind the scenes, She should be careful what she wishes for, resembling very much the PIGS at this point.

    Russia is making overtures to Iran, as is China. Much is yet to be agreed.

    China in its own area is working frantically to achieve international status for its own currency. Bi-lateral currency swaps, and trading agreements have been made with all the BRICS.

    China suffers from a lack of sufficient commodities to expand at the rates required to ensure a compliant population. She is the largest global extractor of gold, all kept within her own borders for addition to her national reserves. She is also purchasing via surrogates on the international markets in order to hide her activities. This last week she signed an innovative agreement with a US listed Alaskan gold miner to purchase directly, for refinement on the Chinese mainland, the heap-leach concentrates of the mining company. This is a global first and probably indicates more such deals in the future. China needs to vastly increase her gold reserves in order to achieve reserve levels commensurate to those of Western nations. She also is encouraging her own population via extensive advertising, to purchase gold and/or silver for investment purposes…..she understands the revaluations that will take place as gold is returned as an asset backing for international currencies, and her populations will be the new rich middle classes via this revaluation…..something the West is not informing its population about, also excluding all academic studies of such from all curriculum, being held in the clutches of fraudulent paper manipulators, servants of the old money!

    China daily, and increasingly, is signing supply agreements, purchasing mines, exploration contracts/freehold, etc, throughout the world, in a logical, sustainable way, tying up scarce resources for years to come. Bi-lateral agreements with Russia, settled in either Rubles or Yuan, (never dollars) for oil, iron ore, gold, and all other commodities abound. Many mining companies in Eastern Russia are building railroads into China to transfer their output.

    ———————————————————————————-

    Russia is working in feverish haste to establish Moscow as an international financial centre, with vast electronic infrastructure capable of supporting similar volumes now handled by London. A reserve currency requires the openness to trade it on the FOREX, and strong capital markets for currency, bonds, and stocks, along with investment banking and respect for contract law.

    At a St Petersburg Intl Economic Forum, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev publicly stated his multi-faceted goal: to make the Ruble one of several world reserve currencies, and to establish Moscow as a global financial hub. All BRIC nations (Brazil, Russia, India, China) were net sellers of US$-based assets in April. Russian Central bank Chairman Alexei Ulyukayev announced in a June 16th interview more diversification plans for Russian reserves.

    ————————————————————————-

    Cameron is aware of these global moves. He has VERY LITTLE time left to turn the UK economy around from the trembling basket case left to him. There are forests of dead wood to extract and burn, and mountains to climb in the re-education and motivation of the workforce and general population.

    He must create a nation acceptable for inclusion in the new world that will coalesce as the western hegemony fades.

    The finance function that London now dominates is set to be fragmented by competing interests, as the world seeks to decentralise after the failure of western finance.

    Oil is gone, and manufacturing has been largely ignored, the skills base all but dead, together with educational standards.

    There is no time to argue with narrow minded regional interests…let them go…concentrate on the core and adjust parliament accordingly.

    It is five minutes to midnight…five minutes is all that is left for this country. For the past century the politics of this nation has been devoted to a graceful, managed decline. Will this change? How can it change?

    But also remember, old empires do not relinquish easily, and the US is still the only global military superpower. Everyone, the entire globe, must tread carefully….madmen occupy very powerful positions..the Great Game, and The War on Terror still exist, and military expenditure can still cure unemployment and buy a vote.

    Heaven help us!

        Allegedly, Duke of Edinburgh is the Venetian connection today (or just one of them?) via Julia Hauke his great grandmother according to a paper I read a while ago written by Miles Mathis entitled “Thrones Infiltrated”.

    Did not the venetians( phonecians) fund Henry V111?

    I have read this somewhere. Did not Henry V111 bring into England The Rolls? My comprehension, though very limited, is that Henry V111 took the idea of The Rolls from the Romans.

    Is the The Rolls not the ‘landed’ people to underwrite the debt of the Nation or something anyway -based on Tontine Insurance schemes which also link into the Laws of Oleron?

    Basically, a nation of people is a metaphorical ship on the Sea of Commerce and there are ships within ships. This is the basis of The Rolls as all the people become metaphorical ships as they have a Certificate of Registration( ever heard of membership and leadership?)called a Birth Certificate. And anyone who is taught how to use this system can ‘extract’ value from anyone who is the HOLDER of such a certificate. Is this NOT the source of a ‘wealth’ on this planet as the people are the ONLY source on this planet who produce using their energy? It ALL goes back to Natural Laws and God’s Law ( whatever one thinks god/creator is). The Entity ( as James has alluded to) is the potential energy called a person/corporation/resident &c. In law an Entity does not do anything so is in energy terms -potential energy AND then takes AGENCY by presumption of the NAME under any of the ACTS of Parliament- kinetic energy.

    The ‘landed’ entity takes Agency under an ACT and a BILL has to be paid. The BILL was read in Parliament 3 times. Here comes the Parasite for the colony of England being sucked by the Host in the City of London with its sophisticated TOOL called the Legal system. THEY speak a different language in the Temple’s, just because iT looks like and sounds like English….IT IS NOT!!!!!!

    IN New Zealand is written very clearly in the legislators information to the public…This act binds the crown. So who is the crown in this case????? Its the people UNDER the NAME by the people’s presumption as the people always answer to the NAME just like their Mother told them to.

    I think that the gold is a sideline, for while gold is stable, gold does not move. So what is being traded on the stock exchange – who is BONDED????

    Pseudo-legal arguments and the pitfalls. This is a transcript of a case Meads v Meads and basically how the judge wiped the floor with the plaintiff.

    Intro:

    “This Court has developed a new awareness and understanding of a category of vexatious litigant. As we shall see, while there is often a lack of homogeneity, and some individuals or groups have no name or special identity, they (by their own admission or by descriptions given by others) often fall into the following descriptions: Detaxers; Freemen or Freemen-on-the-Land; Sovereign Men or Sovereign Citizens; Church of the Ecumenical Redemption International (CERI); Moorish Law; and other labels – there is no closed list. In the absence of a better moniker, I have collectively labelled them as Organized Pseudolegal Commercial Argument litigants [AOPCA litigants@], to functionally define them collectively for what they literally are. These persons employ a collection of techniques and arguments promoted and sold by >gurus= (as hereafter defined) to disrupt court operations and to attempt to frustrate the legal rights of governments, corporations, and individuals.”

    It looks like Admiralty Law is what is being referred to (ships, commerce etc) which has been bandied about on the web a fair bit. I am not a law expert, just to be clear!!! According to some (Sov-cits, Freemen-on-the-land movements) we are all “dead” because we are lost at sea and people are quoting the Cestui Que Vie Act of 1666 to back that up, wrongly imo.

      http://rationalwiki.org/wiki/Freemen_on_the_land
      There are three main beliefs about birth certificates in freeman mythology:

      1.The government uses them to create your strawman and legal person to which all your legal responsibilities, debts and liabilities belong.[40][33]
      2.As a form of registration, they transfer ownership of an individual to the state. This is what allows the state to seize your children if you don’t play by their rules.[40]
      3.They are financial instruments or birth-tracking bonds (a.k.a. live birth bonds) that are sold by the government and then traded on the sea of international commerce, using you as security (an idea taken from the redemption movement).”
