“Remember, democracy never lasts long.  It soon wastes, exhausts and murders itself. There was never a democracy yet that did not commit suicide.” – John Quincy Adams

Who among us can stand against democracy?  Isn’t it the most ideal form of government?  What better way is there to decide issues?  If a majority of the people want things to be a certain way, isn’t it right and proper that their preferences prevail especially when it affects their lives and how they live?  Surely the smaller number of people should not be allowed to dictate to the larger.  While all of this makes sense and is subscribed to by a majority of Americans, the simple truth of the matter is that such thinking, at best, is naïve and as stated by John Quincy Adams, a recipe for disaster.

Even a cursory analysis of the above kind of thinking reveals its inherent flaws.  For example, if the majority believe that it is okay to own slaves, should an issue of this nature be decided by a poplar vote?  Obviously no!  If the measure carried it would violate an individuals God given right to live free. 

Clearly, it is wrong for the majority to possess the means to infringe upon and take away the rights of others even when they believe it is in their best interest.  More

The Pharmaceutical Industry’s Unpleasant Hand in Health and Food Bills

Robert Pear wrote an astounding article in the NY Times on Genetech’s influence on the healthcare bill, writing talking points for both sides of the aisle.  He proved Anthony Sutton’s proposition – that those with power simply use the left and right divide to get what they want, even setting it up.

And that global elite seems to working now through the pharmaceutical industry and bankers to gain power.  Interestingly, it was the pharmaceutical and chemical giant, IG Farben, which destabilized Germany, put Hitler in, and was the primary support for the 3rd Reich.  And the Rockefellers, oilmen and bankers with a focus on eugenics (genetic engineering), had a half interest in IG Farben and IG Farben a half interest in Standard Oil.

 “The question we should be asking is not “How do we make these investments work?” It is “What farming and food systems will feed people without making them sick, keep farmers on the farm instead of the city slums, and allow communities to prosper and thrive?”

For over a year a half now, we have been watching carefully how investors are trying to take control of farmland in Asia, Africa and Latin America as a response to the food and financial crises. In the beginning, during the early months of 2008, they talked about getting these lands for “food security”, their food security. Gulf State officials began flying around the globe looking for large areas of cultivable land that they could acquire to grow rice to feed their burgeoning populations without relying on international trade. So too were Koreans, Libyans, Egyptians and others. In most of these talks, high-level government representatives were directly involved, peddling new packages of political, economic and financial cooperation with agricultural land transactions smack in the centre.

For the past several years I have been referred to as a pessimist, a doom-and-gloomer, even unkind and trying to scare people. There are a few individuals in this nation who have read the warning signs and are better informed spokespersons than the general public, but many citizens are beginning to take notice and listening to what these realistic thinkers are saying. I certainly don’t claim to be a prophet or have any insight into the future. All I can do is study the facts, recall the past and try to determine what to expect in the future. For the past 30 years I have been studying economic history and what I have learned is totally different from what I was taught in the economics courses I took in 1949 and 1950 at the University of Missouri.

During 1982-83 I wrote an article each month for a rural electric publication. The following are the titles of a few of my manuscripts: THE QUESTION OF THE MONEY SUPPLY – WE NEED FAIR TRADE NOT FREE TRADE – WE CAN’T BUY FRIENDS – IT TAKES WORK TO CURE A RECESSION – A WORLD WITHOUT BUREAUCRATS – APATHY WEAKENS A NATION – FOREIGN LOANS PINCH BIG BANKS – DON’T TAKE FREEDOM FOR GRANTED. Nearly everything I wrote in 1982-83 came to pass, yet I was told by the editorial staff in 1983 that my articles were too controversial and my services were no longer needed. They thought I was pessimistic when I was trying to be realistic. More
