Economic hitmen and mutant viral capitalism

Fractional reserve banking, interest, and debt are among the most important weapons of control for the corporate elite in their enslavement of humanity.

I know, I know, enslavement of humanity is soooooo very dramatic, and besides, didn’t Lincoln abolish slavery?  Well, I’m talking on a global scale here, and while we’re at it, one could easily argue that the best slave is one who believes he is free.

Last month, in a post titled Money as debt is the control grid, I said the following:

If you want to truly understand what’s going on in the United States, and in fact, the entire world, then you must understand the concept of usury, or as we’ve come to call it, fractional reserve banking.

This knowledge, combined with an understanding that the Federal Reserve (and nearly every other Central Bank in the word) is a cartel of private banks, earning interest on the money it loans to your government, will make it absolutely clear to you who is really in control.

One need look no further than the father of central banking, Mayer Amschel Rothschild, who once famously stated:

“Give me control of a nation’s money and I care not who makes the laws.”

I also posted the terrific video series titled Money As Debt, which clearly demonstrates exactly how this mechanism has been employed to control not only individuals, but also entire nations.

If you haven’t watched it, I strongly suggest that you do so before reading on.

So why am I rehashing this now?

Well, I ran across this little animated gem today called Economic Hitmen, which explains the process by which the IMF and the World Bank, along with private consulting firms, and western intelligence agencies have been used to create the world’s first truly global empire.

Have a look.

The video is basically just a two-minute encapsulation of John Perkins’ book called Confessions of an Economic Hitman.

Here’s a synopsis:

“Economic hit men,” John Perkins writes in his controversial new book, “are highly paid professionals who cheat countries around the globe out of trillions of dollars. Their tools include fraudulent financial reports, rigged elections, payoffs, extortion, sex, and murder. They play a game as old as Empire but one that has taken on terrifying dimensions during this time of globalization.”

John Perkins should know about economic hit men—he was covertly recruited by the U.S. National Security Agency to be one. For years, he worked for an international consulting firm where his job was to convince underdeveloped countries to accept enormous loans, much larger than what was really needed, for infrastructure development—and to make sure that the development projects were then contracted to U. S. multinationals. Once these countries were saddled with huge debts, the American government and the international aid agencies allied with it were able, by dictating repayment terms, to essentially control their economies. It was not unlike the way a loan shark operates—and Perkins and his colleagues didn’t shun this kind of unsavory association. In fact, they even referred to themselves as “economic hit men.”

This is a story of international political intrigue at the highest levels. For over a decade, Perkins traveled all over the world—Indonesia, Panama, Ecuador, Columbia, Saudi Arabia, Iran—and worked with men like Panamanian president Omar Torrijos,  who became a personal friend. In 1974, he helped to implement a secret scheme that funneled billions of Saudi petrodollars back into the U. S. economy, and that further cemented the intimate relationship between the Islamic fundamentalist House of Saud and a succession of American administrations. Perkins’ story illuminates just how far economic hit men were willing to go, and unveils the real causes of some of the most dramatic developments in recent history, such as the fall of the Shah of Iran and the invasions of Panama and Iraq.

Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, which many people urged Perkins not to write, is a blistering attack on–and exposé of–the little known inner workings of both government and corporate policies that have fostered globalization and led to the impoverishment of untold millions of people across the planet. It is a story that will increase the reader’s understanding of why so many people in so many countries hate America and what is has come to stand for.

This is a must-read book for anyone who wants to understand the forces that really control our world.  It also goes a long way towards explaining the real reasons why they hate us.  And for the hundredth time, it’s NOT because of our freedom.
