    Book recommendation

    The second attempt, but the risk is worth it.

    I want to recommend a book that's really, really important, because it has so much information about what's going on in the world and yet so few people know about it. It's called "The Lost Science of Money", written by Stephen Zarlenga, one of the co-founders of the American Monetary Institute (AMI). He has over 35 years of experience in a lot of financial fields (f.ex. mutual funds, real estate, futures trading, etc.), so he's definitely someone who knows what he's talking about.

    In this book he's laying out the entire monetary history, from the beginnings of money to the creation of the first banks up to the founding of the Federal Reserve System and the development of "modern banking", etc.
    This book... is crazy. Not only does it show the history of money, but it also puts major economic, political, military and even religiously motivated events into perspective and shows that most of them had a monetary component to it, while many were even mainly monetarily motivated.

    He's saying that a lot of major wars throughout history weren't primarily about territory, resources and things like that, but were about monetary control, which is the control over trading-routes, how much money is in circulation and who's in control of that. For example, money systems that used a "gold standard" were controlled by those who owned most of the gold. One of the weaknesses of such a system was the fact that whoever had most of the gold could put more gold in or take more gold out of circulation and manipulate currencies this way. Once a lot of gold is taken out of or too much is put into circulation, a kingdom would end up in a crisis, conflicts would be created and wars would start. Nowadays its done similarly, but instead of a gold standard, or any other commodity for that matter, they use fractional-reserve banking to manipulate the money supply. It's some really fucked up shit if you get into all the details.

    The book has hundreds of sources, amongst them the works of Alexander del Mar, one of the most important monetary historians who has ever lived. If you're interested in this kind of stuff and if you want to understand what's going on behind the scenes you should definitely read it. If the hardcover is too expensive for you, you can get the much cheaper Kindle edition, it's the content that's important.

    Why not abandon sovereign central bank based fiat currency and utilize cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology?

    Because the banksters have not figured out how to pervert the blockchain yet - the zombie dollar is kept afloat by mark-to-fantasy, if things got marked to market then diat currencies would die rather quickly...

    but then again, since all of the intel chips like the corevpro and certain AMDs are compromised and so long as they have some trickle of power, the hidden 3g chip in them can be remotely activated and your computer can be examined without it ever even looking like its on - but this is how they will fake an EMP, because those chips can simply be ran into their "redzone" and melted upon command.

    this was also the reason why "parts of the grid went down" a while back when we had some glancing CME happen on the sun - they blamed it on that solar event, and nevermind the government organized training that was going on. (just like, ignore the planes flying into buildings training that was scheduled for norad on 911, or the school shooting training scheduled by fema next door to sandy hook on the same day, or the homemade bomb training scheduled during the boston marathon, etc)

    which is why I laughed when Apple was trying to act all righteous and "not letting the fbi have access" to the device in the san bernadino incident - when the hack exists at the hardware level, fuhgeddaboutit, if they have your device, they're in. they're in the processor chips, they're in seagate and western digital hard drives, cisco routers - and hey, remember stuxnet? same vehicle except it was the siemens hardware controllers for the centrifuges.

    and that's nevermind the fact that all ISPs and cel networks have data splitters at their major hubs that connect to the NSA data center in utah.

    but funny how nobody said squat about hey why dont we just have the NSA pull up hillary's emails - well, except william binney, who created the database and was the original whistleblower on the NSA's malfeasance.


    any upstart blockchain will get hammered like mt gox, sorry bro. I was hopeful veritasium would have done better...

    hah...I think the answer to this one is too crazy even for this crowd.

    'Gold is the money of kings, silver is the money of gentlemen, barter is the money of peasants but debt is the money of slaves.'
    -Norm Franz

    if the british crown did not win the civil war, then the stage would never have been set for the theft of the creation of fake currency taking the place of real money as prescribed by the constitution.

    then again, the original end run around congress, most of you may know as the delegation of the states...but most also forget that the convention was charged to revise the articles of confederation and return to congress for ratification...



    there's too much, this place is way too far gone, it'll only be wars until they decide to carry out the denver airport mural project on everyone not chosen.

    Good stuff... watch the Money Masters on Youtube.

    According to other monetary experts "Money Masters" has some inaccuracies, so it's not the best, but certainly not the worst introduction to the history of money either. As far as the true history is concerned, "The Lost Science of Money" is by far the best source out there.
