Bailouts, Taxation and Slavery
Did you support the U.S. Bailout?
I fear that many people do not understand the correlation between bailouts, taxation and slavery, if it doesn't affect them immediately they are oblivious. So I will attempt to make the correlation clear in this article.
Recently, we have seen the upheaval in Greece. Several years ago it was the United States. Who knows which country will be next. So the solution offered in Greece by the elite is the same as it was in the United States, the all popular bail out. What exactly happens when countries and corporations are bailed out...let's think about this.
First a large sum of money, be it billions or trillions, are transferred from some organization like the Federal Reserve or the IMF or the World Bank into the coffers of either another large organization or into a corporations like GMC. That money is made up money. Try to wrap your head around that...IT IS MADE UP MONEY, MONEY OUT OF THIN AIR, NUMBERS ON A COMPUTER!. The number is then added to the national debt to be paid back in taxes. So services are cut and taxes are raised to pay the debt and the interest on the debt. The way the money is paid back is through YOUR LABOR. YOUR LABOR is what is real. The higher the taxes the more you have to work in order to feed, cloth and shelter your family. That is why people are revolting in Greece. Because Greece can't print their own money they are feeling the entire weight of these monetary policies directly. Some Greeks have even abandoned their children because they could not afford to feed them. The only reason people haven't done the same in the United States is that we were able to print our own money and now we have the pundits telling us everything is OK. We are like the frog boiling in water...as long as the water gets turned up steadily (they are hoping) we wont notice that we are being boiled alive. As long as the vichy media keep telling us everything is OK, the economy is getting better, we can pretend that everything is OK. The Greeks, however, seem to understand what is going on and that is why they are revolting.
It's elementary my dear.
