The Crisis of Democracy: On the Governability of Democracies was initially a 1975 report written by Michel Crozier, Samuel P. Huntington, and Joji Watanuki for the Trilateral Commission and later published as a book. Noam Chomsky has criticized the report as being "the ideology of the liberal wing of the state capitalist ruling elite" and has said that it seeks to increase state power. The report observed the political state of the United States, Europe and Japan and says that in the United States the problems of governance "stem from an excess of democracy" and thus advocates "to restore the prestige and authority of central government institutions." "The vitality of democracy in the United States in the 1960s produced a substantial increase in governmental activity and a substantial decrease in governmental authority." — Samuel P. Huntington For the Full Video Visit: ChomskyInNederland http://youtu.be/ODtqoottyRY Download: "Crisis of Democracy" - Trilateral Commission Report http://www.wrijneveld.nl/Boekenplank/BoekenVanAanhangersVanDeNieuweWereldOrde/1975-TC-The-Crisis-of-Democracy.pdf Thanks for YouTube Sharing: user/ChomskyInNederland Uploaded on Mar 16, 2012 Goolge The Web: Trilateral Commission David Rockefeller Bilderberg Group

Aldous Huxley, social critic and author of 'Brave New World', talks to Aldous Wallace about threats to freedom in the United States, overpopulation, bureaucracy, propaganda, drugs, advertising, and television (5/18/58) Transcript: (Harry Ransom Center, the University of Texas at Austin) Aldous Huxley -- [...] the dictatorship of the future, I think will be very unlike the dictatorships which we've been familiar with in the immediate past. I mean, take another book prophesying the future, which was a very remarkable book, George Orwell's "1984." Well, this book was written at the height of the Stalinist regime, and just after the Hitler regime, and there he foresaw a dictatorship using entirely the methods of terror, the methods of physical violence. Now, I think what is going to happen in the future is that dictators will find, as the old saying goes, that you can do everything with bayonets except sit on them! But, if you want to preserve your power indefinitely, you have to get the consent of the ruled, and this they will do partly by drugs as I foresaw in "Brave New World," partly by these new techniques of propaganda. They will do it by bypassing the sort of rational side of man and appealing to his subconscious and his deeper emotions, and his physiology even, and so, making him actually love his slavery. I mean, I think, this is the danger that actually people may be, in some ways, happy under the new regime, but that they will be happy in situations where they oughtn't to be happy. Aldous Wallace -- Well, let me ask you this. You're talking about a world that could take place within the confines of a totalitarian state. Let's become more immediate, more urgent about it. We believe, anyway, that we live in democracy here in the United States. Do you believe that this Brave New World that you talk about, er...could, let's say in the next quarter century, the next century, could come here to our shores? Aldous Huxley -- I think it could. I mean, er...that's why I feel it so extremely important here and now, to start thinking about these problems. Not to let ourselves be taken by surprise by the...the new advances in technology. I mean the...for example, in the regard to the use of the...of the drugs. We know, there is enough evidence now for us to be able, on the basis of this evidence and using certain amount of creative imagination, to foresee the kind of uses which could be made by people of bad will with these things and to attempt to forestall this, and in the same way, I think with these other methods of propaganda we can foresee and we can do a good deal to forestall. I mean, after all, the price of freedom is eternal vigilance.

Extracts of Wright Patman Interview, at Longines Chronoscope, A Television Journal of the Important Issues of the Hour, A presentation of the Longines-Wittnauer Watch Comapany. For full Video Visit: Longines-Wittnauer with Wright Patman http://youtu.be/DHdh55w9xt4 John William Wright Patman (1893-1976) was a Democratic representative from Texas, who served in the U.S. Congress from 1929 to his death on March 7, 1976. He was chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on Banking and Currency for 40 years. For 20 of those years, he introduced legislation to repeal the Federal Reserve Banking Act of 1913. In recent American history, remarkable and knowledgeable authorities denounced the racket of the Federal Reserve; One of his favorite ways to explain the workings of the Fed is to tell the story of the "Federal Reserve saloon": "Four cowboys put up their belongings as collateral to borrow a deck of cards. The hitch is that each of the four must bring back 14 cards at the end of the evening — a mathematical impossibility (there are only 52 cards in all, that is to say, 13 to each). In the end, one player ends up with only 10 cards and loses his belongings... that is the problem with the Fed. It creates money to make loans but doesn't create the money to pay the interest." "Now, I believe the system should be changed. The Constitution of the United States does not give the banks the power to create money. The Constitution says that Congress shall have the power to create money, but now, under our system, we will sell bonds to commercial banks and obtain credit from those banks." (Wright Patman, excerpts from Congressional Record of the House of Representatives (pages 7582-7583) September 29, 1941) Under Patman, a little booklet summarizing his views, in the form of questions and answers, called "A Primer On Money", was prepared by the Sub-committee on Domestic Finance, House of Representatives, Committee on Banking and Currency — 88th Congress, 2nd session, August 4th, 1964. Here are excerpts: Q.: Who has the right to create money in the United States? A.: Under the Constitution, it is the right and duty of Congress to create money. It is left entirely to Congress. Q.: To whom has the Congress delegated this money-creating right? A.: To the banking system, that is, to the Federal Reserve System and to the commercial banks of the country. Q.: If the Government can issue bonds, why can't it issue money, and save the interest? A.: A few clear-headed and firm individuals, such as Abraham Lincoln, have insisted that the Government should.

What was conserved was self-sufficiency for the rural family-heads who made up the infantry as well as the productive base of Near Eastern economies. Conversely, what was radically disturbing in archaic times was the idea of unrestrained wealth-seeking.

The 1971 memo to Eugene Sydnor at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, lawyer Lewis Franklin Powell Jr. calls for business to play a more activist role in American politics. The memo was written two months before President Nixon nominated him to the Supreme Court. The memo is credited with inspiring the founding of many conservative think tanks, including the Heritage Foundation, the Cato Institute and the Manhattan Institute. The Powell Memo (also known as the Powell Manifesto) did not become available to the public. It was leaked to Jack Anderson, a liberal syndicated columnist, when he cited it as reason to doubt Powell's legal objectivity. "[Powell] might use his position on the Supreme Court to put his idea into practice... in behalf of business interests." Jack Anderson Four decades of corporate pressure have transformed America. Tax rates on corporations and the wealthy have nosedived. Lawmakers have "deregulated" corporations in one sector after another. Unions, across wide swatches of the private sector, have disappeared. The United States has become, with all these changes, a far more unequal place. Confidential Memorandum: Attack of American Free Enterprise System Date: August 23, 1971 T0: Mr. Eugene B.

On August 15, 1971, President Nixon announced on TV 3 dramatic changes in economic policy. He ends the Bretton Woods international monetary system. He imposes a temporary tax on all imports. This was one of the most important decisions in modern financial, economic and monetary history. Key Economic Facts: Under the gold standard, a government is limited -- both legally and practically -- as to how much paper money it can print. As recently as the Lyndon Johnson administration, the U.S. could print paper dollars equal only to four times the value of the nation's gold reserves. Closing the gold window -- is a euphemism for the U.S. defaulting on its promise to other countries to redeem dollars for gold. In effect, it's a one hundred percent devaluation, a -- de facto -- default on the promise to redeem. The current world monetary system assigns no special role to gold; indeed, the Federal Reserve is not obliged to tie the dollar to anything. It can print as much or as little money as it deems appropriate. Thanks for YouTube sharing by user/TheYouDataBank Google The Web: Nixon Shock The Bretton Woods system Gold Standard Federal Reserve

Money is not a product of nature but an invention of man, and it has little to no meaning aside from what we allow it to have. A real, sovereign democratic nation by definition has all of the money it could possibly need. Federal spending is not related to taxes. The current world monetary system assigns no special role to gold; indeed, the Federal Reserve is not obliged to tie the dollar to anything.

This is my 501st post. lol. I'm grateful for everyone who's followed. [...] A credit redeems a debt and nothing else does, unless in virtue of a special statute or a particular contract. The main obstacle to the adoption of a truer view of the nature of money is the difficulty of persuading the public that "things are not the way they seem," that what appears to be the simple and obvious explanation of every-day phenomenon is incompatible with ascertainable, demonstrable facts – to make the public realize, as it were, that while they believe themselves to be watching the sun's progress round the earth, they are really watching the progress of the earth round the sun. It is hard to disbelieve the evidence of our senses. We see a law which establishes in the United States a "standard dollar" of a definite weight of gold of a certain fineness; we see a law making the acceptance of these coins in payment of debt obligatory on the creditor – a law which is cheerfully obeyed without question; we see all commercial transactions carried on in dollars; and finally we everywhere see coins (or equivalent notes) called dollars or multiples or fractions thereof, by means of which innumerable purchases are made and debts settled. Seeing all these things, what more natural than to believe that, when the Law declared a certain coin to be the Standard Dollar, it really became so: that when we pronounce the word "dollar" we refer to a standard coin, that when we do our commercial transactions we do them, theoretically at least, in these coins with which we are so familiar. What more obvious that when we give or take a "promise to pay" so many dollars, we mean thereby a promise to pay golden coins or their equivalent. Suddenly we are told that our cherished beliefs are erroneous, that the Law has no power to create a standard dollar, that, when we buy and sell, the standard which we use is not a piece of gold, but something abstract and intangible, that when we "promise to pay" we do not undertake to pay gold coins, but that we merely undertake to cancel our debt by an equivalent credit expressed in terms of our abstract, intangible standard; that a government coin is a "promise to pay," just like a private bill or note. What wonder if the teacher of the novel doctrine is view with suspicion? What wonder if the public refuses to be at once convinced that the earth revolves around the sun?" (A. Mitchell Innes ) "The Credit Theory of Money" by A. Mitchell Innes, from The Banking Law Journal Vol. 31 (1914), Dec./Jan., Pages 151-168. https://www.community-exchange.org/docs/The%20Credit%20Theoriy%20of%20Money.htm Edited Excerpts from: Banks and Credit (1948) Coronet Instructional Films The Prelinger Archives collection https://archive.org/details/0537_Banks_and_Credit_19_41_46_04 Google The Web Modern Monetary Theory

The new German Marks – 20. Juni 1948; What happened that Sunday and in the days that followed was almost incomprehensible for the Germans. After nine years of war and post-war deprivation, the shop shelves filled with goods and suddenly everything was available again. A few days preceding June 20, American, British, and French troops had quietly dispersed 23,000 wooden crates throughout the country. They were labeled, “Doorknobs.” (Operation Bird Dog, February to April 1948) In reality, these boxes contained Germany’s new bank notes, printed in the United States. In April 1948 USA, France, England brought to life a currency committee consisting of German specialists and tackled the currency reform, in top secret consultations. (Konklave von Rothwesten). The Soviet military government didn’t know anything about this – and also the population was not supposed to find out anything about the secret consultations; merely around a dozen specialists were informed about the exact date on which the “Deutsche Mark” was going to be implemented.

Extracts from "Michael Hudson on Europe of Democracy to Eurozone of Oligarchy" CapitalAccount; Talk to economist Michael Hudson. Is tax evasion really the problem? Is it governments colluding with banks to rob the people blind that is to blame? Michael Hudson's views whether or not it should be the 99.99% vs the .01%. Thanks for YouTube Sharing: user/CapitalAccount Uploaded on Dec 7, 2011 Key Economics Facts: Europe's elite consolidates personal and national wealth on the continent into an oligarchy of the rich and well-connected. Technocracy means Democracy is over -- Technocrats taking over the Democracy -- it's an Occupation Government. A technocrat is a financial lobbyist. The people demonstrating in the street of Greece want the whole world to know that they are not behind these debts.
