Greece will forever be known as the place where democracy was born… and now, sadly, where it has died.
After a national referendum in which 62% of the population voted against adopting the austerity measures being forced upon them by the European Commission (EC), the International Monetary Fund (IMF), and the European Central Bank (ECB), the Greek leadership has turned around and agreed to measures which are even worse than those originally imposed.
If you’re wondering how it’s possible for a government to completely ignore the express will of the people, well, you really haven’t been paying attention to how things are run in the world these days.
Slowly, almost imperceptibly, the world is experiencing a power shift: away from sovereign states with governing bodies answerable to their citizens – and toward non-governmental entities who take their marching orders from central banks.
Greece is once again showing the way to this next wave in governing… one that is comprised of false, non-representational state governments under the rule of a Global Financial Cartel of international business, finance, political and dynastic money elites. This is the New Banking World Order, where the globalist money powers can impose their will upon previously sovereign states, simply through the threat posed by their control of credit – and the economic chaos they can create.
But Greece is only the most recent – and perhaps most obvious – victim of this vicious new evilarchy, they have been stealthily gathering their forces and consolidating their power for decades. Their roots go back to the post World War I creation of the League of Nations: their first, failed attempt at world governance. Since then this group has created a extensive chain of non-governmental organizations including United Nations, the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Institute for International Affairs, the Trilateral Commission, the Bilderberg Group, and many more. These various international NGOs are staffed and controlled by a revolving pool of connected insiders, bankers, bureaucrats, businessman and billionaires – and it is through this syndicate of private, unelected, unaccountable organizations that the money elite exert their power and disseminate their self-serving agendas.
In 2008, when the sub-prime mortgage backed securities ponzi scheme met its inevitable demise, Secretary of Treasury, former Chairman of Goldman Sachs and charter member of the New Banking World Order, Hank Paulson warned President George Bush that without an $800 Billion bailout of the banks, “the economy will collapse”. But this was never really a warning… it was a threat – exactly same kind of threat that Merkel recently used against Greece. And by capitulating to that threat, both Greece and the United States have fallen prey to a financial coup d’etat, and can no longer be called sovereign, democratic states.
In a recent interview, former President Jimmy Carter made the following statement about the effects of unlimited money now flooding into U.S. political and judicial campaigns:
“It violates the essence of what made America a great country in its political system. Now it’s just an oligarchy with unlimited political bribery being the essence of getting the nominations for President or being elected President. And the same thing applies to governors, and U.S. Senators and congress members. So, now we’ve just seen a subversion of our political system as a payoff to major contributors, who want and expect, and sometimes get, favors for themselves after the election is over. … At the present time the incumbents, Democrats and Republicans, look upon this unlimited money as a great benefit to themselves. Somebody that is already in Congress has a great deal more to sell.”
“Now it’s just an oligarchy.” This is a statement that should be deeply disconcerting to every thinking American citizen. But it isn’t, because sadly we Americans have become intellectually lazy. We have become accustomed to having the media do our thinking for us – and this worked pretty well when our media was comprised of thousands of vital, independent information outlets. But when our information sources are all controlled by the same entities that have taken control of our government – what we have is defacto censorship.
We are unconcerned about the dangers of Oligarchy, because the word never appears boldfaced in our newspaper headlines and it is never uttered by our talking head newsreaders. Although it has long ago ceased to be the case, we remain conditioned to believe that our news & information outlets are our watchdogs – ever on the alert for any and all things dangerous to our freedom an democratic way. Consequently if no one in the media seems concerned about “Oligarchy”, our conditioned response is …”why should we be?”
But when we hear the word Oligarchy, we should recognize it for what it really means… Dictatorship. For when one group controls a political system – even if there are different factions within that group – there is one inarguable and dire consequence and that is that the people are no longer in control of the government.. and that is a Dictatorship.
Sadly, that is the country – and increasingly the political world – that we live in.
When a group of “elites” – whether they be industrialists, bankers, billionaires or bureaucrats – control a government, that government is a dictatorship. And this has been true whether the controlled government is in Communist China, the USSR, Nazi Germany or the United States of America.
We are not going to effect any great changes in our system of government by voting for the any of the candidates the money powers have chosen for us: i.e. Hillary Clinton, Jeb Bush. And the way our system is constructed, you can be damn sure that come November 2016, the only viable candidates left in the race will be politicians who have been approved, corrupted and co-opted by the elites.
By voting for their their candidates, and electing their bagman (or woman) we rubber stamp their system. We legitimize the dictatorship of the elites… and we become tools in the enslavement of the world.
