I was listening to Benjamin Bernanke talking to the college students in South Carolina and explaining why it was necessary to give three trillion U.S. Dollars to the major financial institutions of the U.S. and Europe in order to prevent an indescribable financial and social disaster.
Ben Bernanke was implying, quite vividly, that the economic disaster of the 1930’s with all it horrendous social wounds would have happened several times greater and there would have been earth quakes, lightning from the skies and constant starvation, had the banks not received that infusion of “Kapital.”
(He did not mention what might have happened if the three trillion dollars were given directly to the citizens???)
When I heard Bernanke speak, it reminded me of the writings of Karl Marx a very erudite German Jew, who managed to convince billions of people that a “Dictatorship of the Proletariat (workers)” would save mankind from every social disaster that comes from using money.
Karl Marx wrote an extremely complex treatise or hypothesis which intrinsically implied that humans always become slaves to money and this slavery causes them to commit devastating social crimes as all ethical considerations are lost.
The fact that the religions of the world are opposed to such social criminality was dismissed by Marx as a form of psychological dependency and mind warping.
“Religion is the Opium of the Masses.” Marx and his fellow communists maintained. Marx used the typical mental trick of all the Politicians and Governmental powers used throughout history: “Whatever you do and say that it is ethical, that is a lie. In fact, if you support morality of any sort, you are delusional and under the power of a drug such as opium.”
HOW DID MONEY HAVE SUCH A POWERFUL EFFECT?
There can be no question in any one’s mind that money controls or changes human behavior. This was the fundamental intellectual statement that was crystallized by Karl Marx.
However, the fact that wealth makes people lose some or all of their morality has been known for thousands of years. Every religion in the world has made a commentary on this obvious change in behavior.
But, Karl Marx added a new spice to the soup, namely humanity is made up of two classes: The Rich, who do not work; and The Poor, who work for the Rich and make the Rich richer; i.e., allow their capital to earn a profit.
If there were no profit, the rich would not become richer and the poor, would become richer. Society would eventually reach a state of Nirvana where everyone would be happy and all needs would be fulfilled. Therefore, Karl Marx, as the dialectical father of Communism, had a solution for the problems of all economies and mankind itself: Eliminate Profit!
Pay every man the amount of money he needs for his living standard, and force everyone to work to the best of his ability.
As we saw in Russia, after 80 years of struggle, this entire system collapsed at the cost of millions of lives.
As we see in Cuba, Burma and North Korea, social pain, starvation and an inability for society to progress in any form is the constant result of a belief in a theory that is pure emotion and unfounded in social or individual reality.
HOW DOES COMMUNISM RELATE TO THE FEDERAL RESERVE
Ben Bernanke and the American Government do not pretend to be the apostles of the failed theory of Communism, but they have one major behavior pattern in common: Let the Government control the money!
Why? Because the “Government” will do the best for the population as a whole.
This is the exact same message that Karl Marx gave the Russians and all the other peoples of the world that believe and implement communism and it is the message that the Leader of America’s Central Bank is giving the American public.
“We will do what is best for you!” Whenever you hear that statement, you know you are in for something terrible, perhaps, even deadly.
THE RICH ALWAYS GET RICHER
The easiest way for the rich to become richer is to make the poor their slaves. Throughout history, this has been the only tried and tested method of increasing wealth.
Since pre-recorded history the use of slaves to increase the wealth of the rulers was infallible. Today, the slave trade is hidden under an enormous tangle of words, legalisms, lawyers, advertising and bureaucracy.
But, slavery is still there. The methods of making citizens into slaves and turn their work into more wealth for the rich is through the use of confusion, malapropisms, constant advertising, wars, nationalism and an educational system that promotes the strength of government and erodes the strength of the citizen.
Ben Bernanke is the perfect example. He is a replica of Karl Marx. “Believe me,” he is implying as he tells college students why they will be debtors in the future, “If I hadn’t given my banker friends the money that you will pay in taxes in the future, you would never have an education or a job!”
Not many college students are buying this explanation for the transfer of three trillion dollars to banks– especially banks that have contributed to the election of the man who selected Ben Bernanke to be the leader of the Federal Reserve.
Although three trillion dollars will not make or break the economy of the U.S., those students just became a little poorer and Ben Bernanke’s friends got a little richer.
It only takes a little push, day by day and minute by minute, to be finally pushed off the cliff…
