The animated “Economic Hitmen” is a great video until the last clause from John Perkins: “We cannot have homeland security unless we understand that the whole planet is our homeland.” Translation: global citizenship. I think John Perkins is still an economic hitman, now sent to co-opt the liberty/freedom movement like Republicans want to direct the TEA party movement. With this much control over our lives, the Western banking cartel must now identify the problems they cause as the problems they will solve. If you go to johnperkins.org and look at “10 Things You Can Do To Save the Earth”, you will see how his list slides into global citizenship with merit based on need (#9):
6. Support politicians who are in favor of the environment and will enact changes to protect it for future generations.
7. Vote in the marketplace for companies committed to doing the right thing environmentally and socially.
8. Let leaders know you want wholesome food, clean water and air; send emails — they do count, big-time.
9. Demand that every person on our planet has access to clean air and water, sufficient food, clothing and shelter, health care and a decent retirement.
10. Support companies that sell organic and local foods and operate on the basis of making profits but only while creating a sustainable, just, and peaceful world.
Then he says, “We are poised to enter a new era.” He offers the left side of the false left-right dichotomy, a trap. Ayn Rand warned us of the lefty ‘mystics of muscle’ in the radio harangue of John Galt in Atlas Shrugged, p. 1034 of centennial ed.:
The mystics of both schools, who preach the creed of sacrifice, are germs that attack you through a single sore: your fear of relying on your mind. * * *
and p. 1035:
“They claim that they perceive a mode of being superior to your existence on this earth. The mystics of spirit call it ‘another dimension,’ which consists of denying dimensions. The mystics of muscle call it ‘the future,’ which consists of denying the present. * * *
“What is the nature of that superior world to which they sacrifice the world that exists? The mystics of spirit curse matter, the mystics of muscle curse profit. The first wish men to profit by renouncing the earth, the second wish men to inherit the earth by renouncing all profit. Their non-material, non-profit worlds are realms at their command, where pastry drops on them from clouds at the price of opening their mouth. * * *
and p. 1036:
“Your teachers, the mystics of both schools, have reversed causality in their consciousness, then strive to reverse it in existence. They take their emotions as a cause, and their mind as a passive effect. They make their emotions their tool for perceiving reality. They hold their desires as an irreducible primary, as a fact superseding all facts. An honest man does not desire until he has identified the object of his desire. He says: “It is, therefore I want it.’ They say: ‘I want it, therefore it is.'”
You may have noticed that in early 2011 both sides of the U.S. media complex are touting the achievements of Reaganism and how the system still works. Reagan permitted the S&L debt to grow and get bailed out (bankster profits), signed off on IRCA of 1986 (amnesty), did not really reduce even the non-defense budget and certainly did not cut back on bureaucracy, and permitted Wall Street to buy up all the local hospitals and create health care monoliths.
Reagan was a relatively good president, rel-a-tive-ly. Lincoln was a relatively moderate Radical Republican too: rigging elections at the point of a bayonet, illegally imprisoning dissenters and forcing them to take an oath of allegiance, destroying scrupulous federalism, and laying the groundwork for the immediate Gilded Age and the subsequent progressivism with feminism and communism by way of impressionable youth who as adults wanted to recapture unity at the expense of individual thought and responsibility: e.g. John Dewey and Francis Bellamy.
