I make a habit of checking assumptions when I believe something that a lot of other people believe. When I am online these days, all of the ad tracking systems have me pegged as a “prepper,” and I get ads for everything from freeze dried food to gold bullion. I have become a commodity, and it has made me feel like perhaps I should do a little research into just how imminent this global collapse is likely to be.
Imagine if you had never heard of the Leaning Tower of Pisa, and one day you were walking along and walked up to it. Wouldn’t you charge forward into the crowd on the leeward side and scream at them to get out of the way? Wouldn’t you call them stupid and “can’t you see that the thing is about to go over?” The tower began to sink after construction had progressed to the second floor in 1178. Restoration was done to keep it from evening itself out in the last decade, and it actually leans less now.
First of all, I’m not a fool. The government has really been constructing a system of nationwide “FEMA Camps” since many of our freedoms were stripped away after 911. They really are buying billions of rounds of ammunition, enough to sustain a ground war for 10 years. They really have militarized the police to levels not seen since Nazi Germany. And yes they even have brought in troops from other nations to train to take over our cities. If you care to spend $24.95, you can order a whole set of videos from Alex Jones that will prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that something is afoot, and that there is a plan.
The question is, with all of the publicity garnered from Alex Jones and others, is the fruition of that plan imminent? Many would argue that it has to be, because our entire financial system is in the process of melting down.
Watch this three and a half hour video below. It was made in 1996, during a period of imminent prosperity in the US, and at a time when the “assault weapon’s ban” was coming into existence. The world seemed to be ending then, 15 years ago. If you take the time to actually watch the whole video, you’ll discover that there has been a war between the private bankers and the issuance of actual government money since the beginning of our country. Benjamin Franklin even said that the Revolutionary War occurred specifically for this reason, because King George took away the colonists right to print their own currency. The narrator, Bill Still, goes on to explain that several presidents have tried to create US Treasury money, and they have systematically been killed. If you ever wondered what was meant by “Abolish the Federal Reserve,” this is it. It means abolish money borrowed into existence by private banks (95% of our money right now), and replace it with money created and controlled by the country itself. Below it is the updated version that is shorter, and that won the best documentary film of 2010. It relates the history of our financial system to the Wizard of Oz movie. Great stuff.
You have to watch the video(s). It is an interesting premise, and one based 100% on history. A major point of the film is to explain to people that a “gold backed” currency is not the answer. This I found interesting, and that in particular made me ask myself if I was just being played for a fool by the same bankers that are running things now. A sudden downturn may rise a call for a “gold backed currency” from the prepper crowd. For me, not so much anymore. Please judge for yourself, and let us know what you think in the comments below.
This is Bill’s updated movie, put out in 2010:
