What is the inevitable result of a capitalist system where every new dollar that is used to fuel the economy is lent into existence? Debt Slavery, the ultimate goal of every (paper) fiat currency system.
There is now somewhere in excess of $200 trillion in debt sloshing around the global economy, most of that debt being totally fraudulent in that it is interest paid to bankers literally for nothing. Somewhere around 25% of every dollar earned by all of our Western economies is now paid to these banker-parasites as interest on their fraudulent debts. The bankers would like to steal even more, but already all of our economies are teetering on the verge of bankruptcy - with one of the Deadbeat Debtors (Greece) having defaulted already.
Having enslaved us all with debt thanks to being granted their license to steal, history's greatest thieves are also history's greatest hypocrites. Whenever one of our (subservient) governments has the audacity to actually suggest taking a closer look at the bankers' theft monopoly; the thieves look down their noses, point their fingers at us, and accuse of us "threatening their independence." Yes, there is no one who places a higher price on his own freedom than the slave master.
The latest example of this supreme hypocrisy comes from (surprise, surprises) Ben Shalom Bernanke. Feeling especially pleased with himself after his two-day love-fest with the banker sycophants of the U.S. Congress, B.S. Bernanke chose that moment to launch yet another attack at Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, and his "Audit the Fed" bill.Bernanke's specific accusation? As paraphrased by the Corporate Media, Bernanke said "the ability to review monetary policy decisions...could compromise central bank independence." This is by no means a new argument. Indeed, it is the Big Lie the banker-thieves have hid behind for a hundred years since it has never had a shred of validity. The Big Lie is based on the artificial/arbitrary distinction of all economic policies as being "fiscal policy" (the realm of government) or "monetary policy" (the realm of private bankers).The obvious fiction here in attempting to create some invisible wall between the two groups of policy-makers is that there is only one economy.
