(here is the transcript pdf)

“mutual trust and respect of equals”

there is so much still relevant wisdoms in that Eisenhower Farewell speech from 1961 such as: don’t consume and waste resources, leave some for future generations.

Want to see the Industrial Military Complex in action?

ask General Wesley Clark (thanks for having the courage and coming forward to the stage with DemocracyNow! and say things like)

post 911: “we go to war with iraq” “why?” “nobody knows”

For no other reason, than to enrich the already super rich oild and arms industry (aka the “industrial military complex” (IMC)) (what is called in this book the “old money” the old monetary elite Rockefellers & Co) and make them even richer)

General Wesley Clark: “About 10 days after 9/11, I went through the Pentagon, and I saw Secretary Rumsfeld and Deputy Secretary Wolfowitz. I went downstairs just to say hello to some of the people on the Joint Staff who used to work for me, and one of the generals called me in. He said, “Sir, you’ve got to come in and talk to me a second.” I said, “Well, you’re too busy.” He said, “No, no.” He says, “We’ve made the decision we’re going to war with Iraq.” This was on or about the 20th of September. I said, “We’re going to war with Iraq? Why?” He said, “I don’t know.” He said, “I guess they don’t know what else to do.” So I said, “Well, did they find some information connecting Saddam to al-Qaeda?” He said, “No, no.” He says, “There’s nothing new that way. They just made the decision to go to war with Iraq.” (source

so was Vietnam (triggered by Gulf of Tonkin incident) and Afghanistan and Iraq (triggered by 911) also just rackets?

1984 = permanent warfare: god damn blueprint for the “old money super rich”

and Skull & Bonesmen Bush Junior actually tried to make it catastrophic grim reality.

need proof and examples?

Trump approves $8bn Saudi weapons sale over Iran tensions

Pullout of Afghanistan costs Raytheon $75 million

“that the pullout from Afghanistan equated to a $75 million revenue loss on top of another $275 million loss related to supply chain and people issues” (source)

every war is good income for those companies and “permanent warfare” would have constant flow “a subscription” of public money to private pockets

Revenue Increase US$56.58 billion (2020)[1]
Decrease US$−1.88 billion (2020)[1]
Decrease US$−3.47 billion (2020)[1]

WWI General already knew: war is created by the rich to enrich the (alread) rich

because there is no “rich enough”?

the poor are kept stupid and brainwashed that this is a “just” war for a “just” purpose that makes sense,

while they really pay the rich in blood

it is easier to cope as stupid, in a world (man-made-system) that does not make sense

but stupidity ain’t no solution, it will massively decrease probability of survival for all mankind.

as it will leave problems and challenges unsolved forever – adding to the pile of unsolved problems, until mount-troubles get’s too big.

if you are poor in this world (man-made-system) it is either:

1) you have been not born rich (a family that is already rich, owns a company, owns a oil-fields, owns a gold-mine)

2) you were not ruthless enough (unfortunately the state even protects the financial-criminals, which by avoiding tax, get the most out of their “opportunities”)

3) you were lazy (by nature (to conserve energy) or on purpose) because you did not see, why you should keep an dysfunctional system running, that does not make sense

PS: there is enough money

because it can be printed and it is being printed by the billions and trillions every year

it is just flowing from the central banks -> private banks -> wrong channels (like wall street casinos)


“Anyone dying from hunger was dying from murder”


expert researcher on poverty: Jean_Ziegler

Q1: Does this financial system work?

A1: it works for the private banks, at least for a while, but it does not work for the rest of the world.

Q2: How just is this financial system?

A2: no not at all, just read this:

“During the COVID pandemic the interestrate on TLTRO III was lowered to -1% , which means that the ECB pays banks 1% of the value of their loan every year. This generous support has continued until the coronavirus hit and then strongly increased (see Figure 1).”


Which means: if you are a bank, you even get paid by the central bank, for taking a loan.


If someone with ideas, walks into a bank to request a loan, they will laugh at you.

The “Big” (downward) “Hit” came after 2008.

So are those low interest rates just “fresh blood” for a zombie (the current financial system) to survive a bit longer?

Has the financial system actually collapsed in 2008 and not recovered since?

Why don’t do banks their job?

The job of a bank is to: actively (!) look and engage and foster and support entrepreneurs to finance new ideas, products, jobs…

not: take the freshly printed money and put it into the stock market casino.

Then there would be no “inflation” problem.

Btw: the “independent” central banks failed at their core job: to not do, what “experts” feared the state would do with the privilege of money printing:

print as much money as you like and cause massive dysfunctional financial system and inflation
