    1. Found a book in a resale shop, “The Great Thoughts” by George Seldes, a journalist who evidently really pissed off Hitler and Mussolini in his time. 460 pages of smaller print, with no pictures. People should be able to find a used copy at Amazon, if you don’t already have it on your bookshelf. Never checked out the reviews there, but confident they’re all 5-stars. Yeah, it looks like the money issue has been problematic for some time, given the quotes from those who lived “B.C.”. Every nation on Earth would begin healing when they eliminated privately owned and controlled central banks. It truly is bizarre seeing Congressmen and Senators groveling before Ben Bernanke and now Janet Yellen, when the government should create the nation’s own sovereign currency – as it states in the Constitution.
      Thanks,

      1. Robert,
        You’ve spent time studying him, I haven’t. George Seldes included words by Lord Acton on Rousseau: “Rousseau produced more effect with his pen than Aristotle, or Cicero, or St. Augustine, or St. Thomas Aquinas, or any man who ever lived.” Looks like the bar has been set way up there for you and I and others here. 🙂

      How are you. To be totally honest, dealing with planetary issues like international banking/economics is overwhelming yet, because the consequences are affecting perhaps billions of people, it seems focus related to problem-solving needs to be there. An analogy would be when one has a hangnail (gay rights) and at the same time has stage 4 cancer (private central banking). Most people believe the government (“the people”) is in charge of the nation’s currency, but in 1913 that immense power was turned over to private corporations. Misperceptions of who really controls this global money power are epidemic and awareness is low; those who point out reality are greeted with blank stares then a change of topics to the most recent American Idol. George Carlin’s most profound line may have been “and you’re not in the club”. A United States Bank serving as a public utility admits the citizens to the “club”.
      Thanks,

  1. I am still processing the implications of this video for social welfare policy and advocacy. Although it is hard for me to accept that anyone could be so soullessly but brilliantly calculating about the process of world domination, the evidence presented in this video presents a compelling case that this is so. The question for me is, or course, what can be done to change what appears to be never-ending benefits of war for the puppeteers?

    1. Carol,
      The late Tony Benn mentioned in an interview that the UK national government had a running public bank (I believe he held a cabinet position) but it was shut when Margaret Thatcher came in. Your comment reminded of “Think On These Things” by Krishnamurti, where he told a college audience that those who are born into great wealth should use their time to solve world problems. With regard to what can be done, at present American media has blacked out the truth about who was responsible for the massacre in Maidan Kiev, reporting neither on the EU’s Catherine Ashton and Estonia’s Foreign Minister Urmas Paet intercepted phonecall or the ARD Monitor TV report out of Germany directly contradicting the allegation that Yanukovych and Berkut were responsible. Both raise the strong possibility that what occurred was a violent coup d’état, the knowledge of which would completely alter the situation in Ukraine, lead to a real investigation which may lead to a broader conspiracy, and expose the most horrific actions of the “puppeteers”. This leads to humanity’s awareness that this has been the world’s history, in a sense a worldwide confession which would in all probability lead to creation of more beneficial and moral human behavior.
      After some thought and a few emails of the ARD Monitor YouTube video link, with the idea in mind that law enforcement officers were gunned down in Kiev, the action of emailing that video link to every State Police agency in America has been decided on. Simply, in this situation where the possibility of unnecessary violence is hinged on the over 100 sniper murders, the truth cannot come out ten years from now – it must come out yesterday because it is that urgent.
      Thanks,
      Jerry

  2. I’m sorry, Jerry. I understand and support your point completely.
    In a serious way though, the rich DO eat the poor. They consume all the resources, that if fairly shared, would allow the poor to live and grow strong and assert their sacred right to this planet home. But I was too flippant within the very serious context of your post. I will be more careful and respectful from now on. Peace to you.

      Cut yourself some slack because there’s absolutely no need for any apology – I’m thrilled to get comments. 🙂 I’ll flip the humor: It would be a good thing if I got obscene phone calls – they’re better than none at all. 🙂 It’s a “coincidence” the timing of your comment as just finished watching a testimonial video from men and women who’ve had NDEs – and one fellow mentioned the concept related to “it is better to give than receive”, which is a concept he came to embody and know totally on the “other side” during his experience. Don’t know how familiar you are with the NDE, but if people watch personal accounts there are most certainly zero actors. So, it seems completely plausible that there is a direct connection with what that man understood during his profound (as well as 99.999% of NDErs) NDE, “better to give than receive”, and the international banking cartel with today’s historic wealth inequality. Simply, monetary reform is available for implementation which would result in improved living conditions for people around the Earth – and if there is an option that is morally and ethically superior, why not?
      Thanks for your thoughtful action to correct what you thought may have hurt my feelings, but just know that it was unnecessary because you didn’t at all. 🙂 If you’re into marathon sessions in these comments sections, stop by any time and we’ll take a run at issues to find if our heads together can make a good difference. You never know, the comments could end up the content of a book with the title “Leave a Reply.” 🙂
      Peace be with you, Claire, and thank you.

    My first visit Jerry ~ impressive.

    If anyone should know exactly what he’s talking about it ought to be Philo, allegedly born into the wealthiest of Alexandrian families and perhaps more deeply implicated in “Xian” beginnings than most people recognize!

    1. David,
      How are you. It’s a “coincidence” you comment here as, on Lo’s blog a day or so ago I was going to ask your opinion on monetary reform, namely your opinion on the work of Ellen Brown on public banking. Also, a radio host named Michael Rivero made a documentary “All Wars Are Bankers Wars” that makes a strong case for the idea that wars are mostly fought for control of money in nations. His #1 bucket list item is elimination of private central banks on Earth. Yeah, so it’s neat that I can ask you about this major issue here. 🙂
      Thanks,

        Not sure that I can add much to what’s already been flagged up generally, Jerry. However, my own instincts are that the way the public have been conditioned to think of banks is way off the rails.

        Really, a bank in my view should be like any other utility, an accountable public service.

        When every thing is justified according to privatized (shareholder) interests, this original function gets corrupted. I think the key distinction is between the shareholder and the concept of stakeholders. The latter benefit from mutual gain in multiple ways, whereas the former only crave personal increase of wealth.

        So what do we really mean by this wealth? It’s essentially purchasing and investment power; & social prestige. However, when the returns are impoverishing the ecosystem and wrecking the societies embedded within it, these long term losses are a obviously a direct result of this rush for short term “profit” so everyone loses ~ even those who are the “big winners” because they can only enjoy their extravagant luxury at the expense of social exclusion ~ literally living on borrowed time in privileged but paranoid isolation.

        I think Ellen Brown has the right idea, providing it draws the right people with the right skills, and regulatory oversight is competent and robust. As much as I’d like to see maximum prosecution of cartel felons, it may just not be possible until alternative ethical systems are well established. Perhaps what we could promote and generate is a climate of naming and shaming, that would coerce the villains to reinvest their ill-gotten capital (real assets not inflated paper) in “indigenous” society and its infra-structure needs,

        In short, convince them to redeem the error of their ways. How realistic that is remains to be seen! However informed and educated public opinion does count for a lot, especially when giant egos are threatened and their esteemed self-image is in jeopardy.

        What’s your view? How do we square the practical with the ethical? I mean, is it feasible to reverse the tides of war and “kill” this spurious US war economy ~ surely something of a tautology, as it has always led to ideological consolidations of ruthless accumulation through violence, an “empirical necessity” and self-perpetuating engine of predatory criminality.

        It’s a tough challenge to educate the minds of those addicted to power at any cost.

        1. David,
          Thank you very much for generously sharing your thoughts on this largest of issues. Perhaps my way of looking at this is overly simplistic but when one places the concept of private central banking next to public utility banking it seems apparent that public banking offers more benefits for more of the people. So, in a “Consumer Reports” sort of way, humanity would be better off “buying” that monetary system. With public banking all the frauds, dirty dealing in complex financial products which are in essence gambling, and corruption would be cleaned up to a large extent. Most importantly, the incentives that lead to wars would be virtually eliminated, an absolutely germane world issue with what is developing in Ukraine, Syria and elsewhere. Yes, it’s a tough challenge to debate those addicted to power, but the world’s people can allow them to keep the addiction – then take away the power. Frankly, the madness of wars occurring right now has everything to do with this very issue/monetary debate we’re talking about.
          Your reasoned discussion is greatly appreciated,
          Jerry
