ne can only hope the time is short between now and when people around the Earth all speak as frankly and directly as Ken O’Keefe. Today’s admirable group of men and women from all nations working for social change, justice, peace and a better world do an excellent job of describing historically persistent problems and their unfortunate consequences.
In contrast, Mr. O’Keefe does the same but goes on further to describe the source or root cause of those ongoing problems: privately owned and controlled central banks. In other words, while the majority of people working to create a better world are genuinely concerned about humanity and future generations, the analytical foundation or worldview they operate from is too often incomplete; practical consideration of the international finance sector as it determines real-life situations doesn’t occur and get factored in.
Without that essential awareness, and inclusion of it into one’s worldview, solutions-focused action falls short by failing to account for and/or identify causes to the greatest extent possible. In simpler terms, most people concerned about creating conditions that result in greater health, happiness and well being for all people on Earth have, although genuinely moral and acting with the best intentions, been for various reasons going about it with less-than-complete analyses.
Yet the missed, avoided, or otherwise omitted part of one’s analysis of worldwide conditions – private central banks – is the part that is absolutely necessary and relevant for developing effective solutions and building a better world. In a 1-hour 53-minute talk on March 20, 2016 in Berkeley, California Ken O’Keefe does an extraordinary job of pointing out those analytical parts too often missed in discussions and writings by otherwise good and moral people. He talks about those referred to by French philosopher Voltaire (1694-1778) in his famous quote: “To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize”.
Excepting an even deeper metaphysical, philosophic or spiritual analysis of life on Earth, Mr. O’Keefe discusses actual global conditions to the fullest descriptive extent possible in the material realm. Perhaps in the next major leap of human evolution non-material factors will become a larger part of the discussion, but for now it seems of high importance to accurately perceive the physical realities present and responsible for what occurs on the ground, experienced by billions of our brothers and sisters, over a large portion of the planet.
One could predict a short interval of time between when the information presented by Mr. O’Keefe becomes widely known and acknowledged and when metaphysical aspects of reality become increasingly more a part of societal awareness, conversations, and agreed-upon perceptions. In a real sense, and why his talk is important and timely, Mr. O’Keefe leaves listeners with the essential and eternal Earthly choice between love of money and love for our fellow brothers and sisters in the human family. The following biblical passage goes unmentioned in his talk, but adds another, metaphysical perspective:
1 Timothy 6, 9-10: “But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation, into a snare, into many senseless and hurtful desires that plunge men into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is the root of all evils; it is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced their hearts with many pangs”.
All the world’s great religions, spiritual and philosophical traditions speak in their most revered writings to this aspect of the human condition. His use of expletives aside, one could guess Ken O’Keefe would describe himself not as a religious but a spiritual human being. What he covers in the talk is very likely the most difficult information listeners will encounter, and which afterward inescapably presents them with the choice of acceptance or rejection of points presented as truth. He describes the very raw, hard and uncomfortable truth of what has been and is now occurring on planet Earth.
As ever, an apology for sharing such a lengthy talk of close to 2-hours. If time doesn’t allow, consider making a note to listen to Mr. O’Keefe’s powerful talk at a later date. For those who choose to listen to the talk in its entirety, it might be the case after doing so to conclude he’s fundamentally talking about a profound and collective facilitating of rapid human evolution. Although nuanced, understated and sprinkled with curse words, Ken O’Keefe would probably agree the foremost characteristic of his evolutionary proposal is spiritual.
Thank you, Ken O’Keefe. Keep the faith.
