Capitalism vs. Commonwealth
The wealthy class– bankers, finance speculators, commercial GMO farmers and all the other economic controllers–have adopted a completely opposite way of life than working class Americans: every person for himself is how the wealthy class operates. This way of life has trickled down to the average citizen as well. We no longer have a commonwealth where people work for the benefit of the community and the country as a whole. The capitalist world view of the wealthy class sees states and its communities as a system of exchange between producers and consumers, “the moneyed” and workers. The holy of holies for the banker class is the “free market” ideology, according to which each man pursues only his own self-interest. Society is held together, not on the basis of common welfare, but by the “invisible hand of the controlled market” implemented through impersonal UCC contracts and admiralty law of our court system.
The zenith of the system is the Bank for International Settlements in Basle, Switzerland; a private bank owned and controlled by the world’s central banks which are themselves private corporations including the federal reserve. The growth of financial capitalism made possible a centralization of world economic control and use of this power for the direct benefit of financiers and bankers with the indirect injury of all other economic groups.” Global capitalism, as it currently stands, does not work for the benefit of the people as a whole but, and does for the elite would be world rulers. The system works only to increase the wealth of the elite and when more wealth and power is needed the wealth gets transferred from the tax payers to bankers and corporations of Wall Street. Well known as the bail out exchange.
The so called founding fathers of the United States had a hand in creating the problems that stares us in the face today. Delegates to the Constitutional Convention were instructed that their only job was to amend the Articles of Confederation. Any proposed changes were to be supported by all the states before they were implemented. A conspiratorial cabal, led by Hamilton and Madison with other convention members, had already decided that they would abandon the Articles of Confederation and write an exclusively new constitution. The constitution they wanted would create a powerful centralized government controlled by the rich land owners, themselves included. The Convention met entirely in secret, and it would be fifty-three years before American citizens were allowed to see the record of what had transpired in this coup d’etat which enshrined predatory capitalism as the enforced way of life for U.S. citizens.
The Constitution these cabal conspirators plotted effectively created an economic document making property the foremost wealth. This made it near impossible for the common people or working class to have any political clout and gave the minority capitalist wealthy land owner class political power. The constitution contains to checks and balances against plutocratic corporate power and essentially gave private corporate control of government. Today it’s still in effect, don’t pay your property taxes and see how much you own. Read your property deed and you’ll see your only a tenant on state owned land.
The cabalist crafters of the constitution knew damn well the popular majority in the states would not go along with their oligarchic document. The framers developed a provision that would have the constitution go into effect when only ratified by nine states. They lined in all up with dirty deeds to ensure its ratification. They pushed for rapid election of state delegates that where sympathetic to the “constitution.” Members of state conventions that where aware of con job where harassed by federalist whom paid dirty trick operatives. Only one-fourth of the adult males in America were allowed by property requirements and other restrictions to vote on delegates to the ratification convention. Politics of the late 18th century weren’t much different than now, lies and deceit were as common then as today. Most is not as it seems.
“The decayed condition of American democracy is difficult to grasp, not because the facts are secret, but because the facts are visible everywhere. American democracy is in much deeper trouble than most people wish to acknowledge. Behind the reassuring facade, the regular election contests and so forth, the substantive meaning of self-government has been hollowed out. What exists behind the formal shell is a systemic breakdown of the shared civic values we call democracy.
“At the highest levels of government, the power to decide things has instead gravitated from the many to the few, just as ordinary citizens are becoming to suspect. Instead of popular will, the government now responds more often to narrow webs of power – the interests of major economic organizations and concentrated wealth and the influential elites surrounding them.
“In place of a meaningful democracy, the political community has embraced a permissive culture of false appearances. Government responds to the public’s desires with an artful dance of symbolic gestures – hollow laws that are emptied of serious content in the private bargaining of Washington. Promises are made and never kept. Laws are enacted and never enforced.”

The history we are taught from grade school thorough college is not what we think it is. True history is hidden and manipulated to keep the people in the dark. We are slaves to the system, that’s the way our masters planned it and strife to maintain it.
Go back to sleep and forget you ever read this, “NOW”.
