In response to wozzy's comment:
You don't believe that the 1% of the population that controls 90% of the wealth, who have handed this legacy down over generations to their heirs, have any undue influence over our political process, fraternal organizations, the value of paper money, the governments of the world, the military, the media or even religions... this seems like a conspiracy theory to you?
If you need to be convinced of this, than I'm certainly not the one to show you.
Well, you've morphed the FEMA Human Roundup Theory into something different here, but I'll respond nonetheless.
I'm pretty sure the "1% control of 90%" part has probably been true throughout recorded history. That by itself does not show me anything except a reflection of the essence of man. I believe something Warren Buffet often says: Greed is an eternal desire of man.
Do the 1% pass this on to their heirs for eternity? Not really. It's hard to imagine someone more drunk with power than Caesar in his day. Where is his power today? Who passed on this power and influence to self-made men like Ray Kroc, Sam Walton, Andrew Carnegie, et al? When did this start for you?
Power and influence are not eternal. Neither are institutions. Where is the Roman Empire Today? The British Empire? etc. etc. etc.
This isn't a Dan Brown novel. It's real life.
Some people tend to believe in apocalyptic events occurring in their lifetime. I'm not sure why. Maybe it gives their own lives a sense of greater importance.
Ever notice how many prophecies are projected to come through in the lifetime of the author? Not a coincidence really. It's hard to cash in when you're dead.
In closing, and for the 175th time, there was no "magic bullet".
Happy New Year
the 90% have maintained power and control throughout history. they do so today. It's in their best interest to maintain this. They did so in feudal times by the stick and yolk. They do so today by control of money, which in essence is control of power and government. They have more influence than you and I to insure certain laws get passed that protect their interests.
Power, influence and institutions are eternal...they just morph based on the time and circumstances. The British empire is alive and well. proof of this is the federal reserve bank which is a charter bank of the Bank of England. What does this say? That england in essence controls our money, thus our government and policies.
Greed is eternal. The question is what measures are those that control the power and wealth willing to take to protect it?
If you side with Wozz and Babe, then you believe some of the things they point out, the FEMA camps, DhS buying hoarding ammo, the patriot act and their great extensions, NSA, the federal reserve control, etc are all designed to protect this power structure and the power elite. If you don't side with them, these things are set up to protect us from terrorists, do what's in the best interest of the common man.
