Sodium Haze: Only Monetary Reform can rescue democracy

Only Monetary Reform can rescue democracy

The mainstream media doesn't trouble itself to inform the public about the annual Bilderberg meetings.

Held in various locations around the world under heavy security and (in the past) a shroud of secrecy - some of the richest and most powerful men on the planet gather to divide up the riches of the world.

What they discuss is secret - no press conference is held - no minutes are published but one can guess the agenda pretty easily. As Adam Smith wryly remarked in The Wealth of Nations:

"People of the same trade seldom meet together, even for merriment and diversion, but the conversation ends in a conspiracy against the public, or in some contrivance to raise prices."

A persistent Guardian journalist forced an admission from The Treasury that our esteemed chancellor was indeed on the guest list and another followed an historic moment as a local Swiss MP tried to gain entry to the building.

You can check out the pressure group Bilderberg Transparency for more information - but one video caught a very familiar face on camera!

Did you spot him right at the start? Why its our very own New Labour darling Peter Mandleson! Now what would a Labour politician be doing at a gathering of the super rich? This article from George Monbiot had Mandy's role in governement rumbled long ago:

"BERR, now run by Lord Mandelson, functions as a fifth column within government, working for corporations to undermine democracy and the public interest. Since he became business secretary in October, Mandelson has been quietly building a bonfire of the measures that protect us from predatory corporate behaviour"

Ahhh!! Now we see why Mandy is rubbing shoulders with bankers and corporate muscle - he is (and always has been) their ever willing toady. He is always delighted to remove barriers that might obstruct big corporations from dominating the public - just a bit more from the Monbiot article:

"Mandelson, who once avowed that 'we are intensely relaxed about people getting filthy rich' was partly responsible, both in Blair’s government and as European trade commissioner, for promoting the culture of deregulation that catalysed the economic crisis. Yet even today he boasts about 'a decade of reform that has given the UK the most open and flexible product and labour markets in the world' "

Well quite - his backhanders are your poverty and erm 'flexibility' (longer working hours for less pay).

Another article in The Guardian tracks his meetings at the Rothchilds villa with folks like Muammar Gaddafi and David Geffen - soon after governement policy was responding to their needs.

All of these secret meetings add yet another weighty reason to campaign for monetary reform.

These ultra wealthy and ultra powerful men are made so because they literally have the licence to print money in their pocket - and until we return the power to create deposits to the state these unaccountable men of finance and corporations will rule our world for their own benefit.

And one must never be deluded - there are only two things that thet wealthy and powerful truly yearn for - more wealth and more power.

Josiah Stamp had all this nailed a long time ago:

"Banking was conceived in iniquity and was born in sin. The Bankers own the Earth. Take it away from them, but leave them the power to create deposits, and with the flick of the pen they will create enough deposits to buy it back again.

However, take it away from them, and all the great fortunes like mine will disappear, and they ought to disappear, for this would be a happier and better world to live in. But if you wish to remain the slaves of Bankers and pay the cost of your own slavery, let them continue to create deposits."

Sir Josiah Stamp, President of the Bank of England in the 1920's, the second richest man in Britain

We must wrest back the power to create money if we are to have any hope of having any functional democracy and control over our lives.


If we don't win the battle for monetary reform then our futures will be decided at secret meetings like Bildeberg by unelected bankers and corporate financiers - and we are definitely not invited.
