There is no Democracy

by on Aug.09, 2011, under The General Pursuit

The movie “Network” made this clear in 1976. Seriously, 1976? We’ve been so ignorant for so long. National sovereignty is an illusion. Corporatocracy. One World Order Fascism. That is who we are.

The United States was never meant to be a Democracy. Our founding fathers knew that people were too easily manipulated. Yet the notion that the United States of America is a democracy is pounded into our brains since we were children – in school, through television programming, in movies, and newspapers, and by TV news anchors.

Enough! It is a ruse.

Network: Howard Beale – There is no democracy by cheshirecatfr

In The Secret Team, by L. Fletcher Prouty, this is exposed even earlier than 1976. That is, if you could find a copy of the book the CIA made disappear back then.

Two important events of that period have been little noted. First, on Feb. 7, 1972 Maurice Stans, Nixon’s Secretary of Commerce opened a “White House Conference on the Industrial World Ahead, A Look at Business in 1990.” This three-day meeting of more than fifteen hundred of the country’s leading businessmen, scholars, and the like were concluded with this memorable summary statement by Roy L. Ash, president of Litton Industries:

… state capitalism may well be a form for world business in the world ahead; that the western countries are trending toward a more unified and controlled economy, having a greater effect on all business; and the communist nations are moving more and more toward a free market system. The question posed during this conference on which a number of divergent opinions arose, was whether ‘East and West’ would meet some place toward the middle about 1990.

That was an astounding forecast as we consider events of the seventies and eighties and discover that his forecast, if it ever was a forecast and not a pre-planned arrangement, was right on the nose.

This amazing forecast had its antecedent pronouncements, among which was another “One World” speech by this same Roy Ash during the Proceedings of the American Bankers Association National Automation Conference in New York City, May 8,9,10, 1967.

The affairs of the world are becoming inextricably interlinked … governments, notably, cannot effectively perform the task of creating and distributing food and other essential products and services … economic development is the special capability and function of business and industrial organizations … business organizations are the most efficient converters of the original resources of the world into useable goods and services.

The flash of genius, the new ideas, always comes from the marvelous workings of the individual brain, not from the committee sessions. Organizations are to implement ideas, not to have them.

As a Charter Member of the American Bankers Association’s Committee on Automation Planning and Technology I was a panelist at that same convention as we worked to convert the 14,000 banks of this country to automation and the ubiquitous Credit Card. All of these subjects were signs of the times leading toward the demise of the Soviet Union in favor of an evolutionary process toward One World.

Ralph Nader – An Unreasonable Man

by on Jan.29, 2010, under The General Pursuit

The documentary “An Unreasonable Man” about Ralph Nader is a good movie.    Nader’s track record as a whistle blower and a populist is commendable.  The movie opens with this quote:

“The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.”   —George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman

Click here for more on the movie about an American who gave a shit, and endeavored to do something about it.   If more people like Ralph raised hell – the corporatocracy that is running the United States could be kept in check.
