Who Owns Earth?

Updated on November 23, 2016

Ruling Elite

The Rothschild family has an estimated net worth of around five hundred trillion USD. In comparison the world average salary is about $18,000. To be considered a part of the ruling elite, or top one percent, you need just $34,000 annual income. Are you a part of the ruling elite? If so, it's likely that nearly every decision you make, no matter how seemingly trivial, has global shock-waves of monetary and environmental influence. While you may be in the top 1% you're still extremely impoverished in comparison to the top 0.001%.

World Income Inequality

As long as poverty, injustice and gross inequality persist in our world, none of us can truly rest.

— Nelson Mandela

How can so few take so much and leave so little?

Fiat currency control through central fractional reserve banking, combined with the state-corporate suppression of small business through legal regulations, and the inability to compete in markets with businesses which receive massive annual subsidies. What is fractional reserve banking? It's essentially the practice of banks loaning out money they don't actually have, and on top of that demanding interest. Banks can loan out around ten times what they have on hold.

Who owns the central banks? The International Monetary Fund and the World Bank are owned by the Rothschilds and Rockefellers, and the Rothschilds respectively. Through these organizations they own the central banks of nearly every country on the planet. People like Gaddafi who resist this system by creating their own gold backed currency are tortured and killed, or just overthrown if they're lucky. Through this system of fiat currency control, these monetary institutions effectively own the citizens of most, if not all countries by means of national debt. By controlling currency, they can easily control the supposedly natural booms and busts of economies, and by extension control the outcome of wars or the starting of them.

If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their Fathers conquered.... I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies.... The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people.

— Thomas Jefferson

“If my sons did not want wars, there would be none.”

— Gutle Schnaper Rothschild

History records that the money changers have used every form of abuse, intrigue, deceit, and violent means possible to maintain their control over governments by controlling money and its issuance.

— James Madison

Politician On Banking


As I explained earlier, you're effectively controlled by international bankers through national debt. As soon as you were issued an official government birth certificate, you were in debt.

As a citizen of a nation, you must pay your taxes. You are extorted into paying for a national debt which you had nothing to do with. You are a slave to your international masters, and if you desire freedom, you can go to prison at the point of a gun.

At one point states were truly nations of people. Now they are basically plantations in which slaves believe they are free, but are held by chains in their mind, placed there by propaganda from an early age. You're taught to have an immense admiration and reverence for your nation, regardless of its immoral nature of coercion. You're taught that you are free, it's repeated until you believe it. You're taught to have a deep pride and respect for your nation and an undying gratitude for it.

Eventually you begin to believe that your extorted input into the system is used for the good of all citizens. You imagine that without government, there would be no roads, healthcare, police, firemen and so on. This is how the system remains mostly unquestioned and stable.

An Illustrative Analogy

Corporate Influence On Government

Through lobbying and campaign donations corporations have an intensely strong grip on the regulations, laws, and policies of nations. For example, most people know that corporations can retain monopolies on a market by making alternatives illegal or heavily restricted. As well as lobbying government to maintain substantial subsidies for their benefit, which make it nearly impossible for smaller businesses or chains to compete in the market, not to mention even starting out.

Take cannabis as an example. It's impossible to overdose on the drug, and yet the entire criminalization of this useful plant is based on the idea that the psychoactive effects are dangerous. That's a distraction. The idea that it's an illegal drug is a hoax, its an illegal resource. Many countries have ordered their farmers to grow marijuana as it is a very valuable cash crop used in textiles, paper, building materials, food, adhesives, fuel, and more. Marijuana also helps to replenish soil nutrients and in the past farmers in the U.S. were encouraged to rotate it through seasons in order to maintain the quality of farmland. Why would a useful resource be illegal? The state-corporate tango maintained through lobbying and campaign donations, which is colloquially referred to as bribery is the mechanism which maintains this system of profit for few, and loss for many.

We may believe that we have power over our governments, but in comparison to those with real money, our sense of power and control is entirely illusory. The illusion is very useful to those in power because it keeps us complacent and content with our position in the global hierarchy, completely oblivious to our status as slaves. Most people have no idea that this is whats going on, our school systems are specifically designed to keep kids unaware of economic systems of control. They feed kids trivia and teach them to memorize, rather than to have a life long appreciation for curiosity and questioning.

What Can We Do?

To fight back against this backwards system all we have to do is be aware of it, and change our lifestyles accordingly. Do what you can to invest in crypto-currencies rather than fiat currencies, which maintain their value through coercion. Be aware of the supply chain of the goods and services you purchase. Question everything, and don't be satisfied with turning a blind eye to it all. It is much easier to accept this and to do nothing about it, but to stand up and fight back takes courage, motivation, and a value for morality and truth. I'm sure you have what it takes to fight for real freedom in the international exchange of ideas.

Do what you can to educate others and get them interested in whats going on. We now have social media sites where a single person can reach hundreds or even millions of others. Although you may not get many likes on posts about the topics covered in this article, people will see it. The more people who see the truth, the more likely that we'll be able to stand up. The sooner we remove the illusion of freedom, the sooner we can achieve real freedom.

Human Nature

Let me tell you a story…

There was an anthropologist who had been studying the habits and culture of a remote African tribe.

He had been working in the village for quite some time and the day before he was to return home, he put together a gift basket filled with delicious fruits from around the region and wrapped it in a ribbon. He placed the basket under a tree and then he gathered up the children in the village.

The man drew a line in the dirt, looked at the children, and said, “When I tell you to start, run to the tree and whoever gets there first will win the basket of the fruit.”

When he told them to run, they all took each other’s hands and ran together to the tree. Then they sat together around the basket and enjoyed their treat as a group.

The anthropologist was shocked. He asked why they would all go together when one of them could have won all the fruits for themselves?

A young girl looked up at him and said, “How can one of us be happy if all the other ones are sad?”

      Excellent Hub, Sam. The wealth gap in this world is absolutely appalling and growing. Yet we continue to buy into it and sustain it. Quite sad.
