Not sure if this actually fits in the current events or not but this is one of the better documentaries i have watched on monetary policy in some time. So for all those Canucks out there who are so smug because they believe their banking system is just better - think again. Your children are now banker debt slaves. So grab a beer or a cup of coffee and sit down and watch this from start to finish. It's time for a wake up call.
Somehow I think you and I have had some of this discussion before but just in case.
I'm semi-smug because we suck less than some other 1st world nations and despite the extremely strong pull from our neighbours to the south we have some significant differences that work out better in these times. It is not easy to resist 'doing what the USA does' and it comes at a price. We pay that price.
Not sure what your utopia is, but could we pay that price?
...of the U.S.A. and its genocidal fascist corporatist foreign and domestic policy has become a heck of a lot harder since Harper came to town. Canada might be the last domino, but it is standing right in line with all the other politician and banker scum run oligarchies. I keep hoping to wake up from this Keynsian, Orwellian dystopia but it is ever present. Give em time and I'm sure they will come looking for many of us for truth or thought crimes. No where to run and no where to hide. Stocking, stacking, and steaming mad.
Had a second thought. Yes I think twice a day.
If we did somehow manage to stay free of bad banking while the USA and so many other nations went into the Kenyesian dumpster what would happen next?
Well what happens with the rest of our resources? Share...or else.
I submit that it is wise to play along at least a little. Canadians have not got a gun-toting reputation and in scarce times having wealth without being able to protect it works out almost the same as never having had wealth at all.
Swampfox thanks for posting that. It should be shown in schools to students 18 and up. It is true that Canadians can be too smug and complacent.
Great idea for this forum. Will get back to watch the video later. Been wondering how long Canada would take to wake up....as usual we are behind our southern neighbors.
Dunno is the honest answer.
Being Canadian in this world is a lot like being a spectator in a giant Globe theater version of "Clash of the Titans".
What I worry about most is my kid's future. I love the little pups and I am concerned about the world they are about to inherit. Will they be free people living in a world with hope or debt slaves living in a global fascist banker run oligarchy?
If I am honest it is the fourth quarter and things don't look great for lovers of peace and freedom anywhere.
Anyways - I've always appreciated knowing the truth and I figured it is about time that our fellow countrymen knew it as well. Maybe if enough of us wake up there can be hope? Maybe.
As for gun toting and being able to protect ourselves what we really lack are numbers. But 80 million guns in the hands of 33 million Canucks means that we at least some gumption left.... not that it matters much against tanks, stealth bombers and Navy Seals, eh?
Truth is our own government has sold us out to foreign interests in order to protect banker interests. Besides banking issues bilateral agreements that allow for the use of foreign troops on home soil eliminate the possibility that a civilian uprising - armed or not - could not be contained by our own government. Just call in the Marines if there's trouble. They'll show us rowdy Canucks how to behave - we are after all - just foreigners. Hewers of wood and water we are. So know your place. Live it. Love it. Own it.
No - armed insurrection will prove futile in the future. It is the nuclear option we don't really truly want to exercise. We need to first use the tools of shame and ridicule followed by a Ghandi like approach of non participation in my mind.
But who will lead the way???
We need a new Ghandi for this age and place.
And - you're welcome. Thanks for noticing my post and responding.
...but when freedom becomes impossible, violence becomes inevitable. I have been a believer in democratic process all my life, albeit with a nice Canadian socialistic flavor. I must say, however, that my belief in the efficacy of protest, dialogue, and peaceful activism is wearing very thin. The governments we have been taught to trust, respect, and even obey have fundamentally betrayed that trust. Agent provocateurs, propaganda, lies, intimidation, police brutality, and murder: all are the every day tools of TPTB. To think that a hope and a prayer will wish them away is naive. Things will have to become much, much worse, and many more victims created before we the people gain the will and the fortitude to stand up to our elected...and unelected exploiters. The odds of this happening without violence are slim in my opinion. In fact I feel the violence has already begun. As for the North American Security perimeter, it is my hard felt belief Mr. Harper has sold out Canada's sovereignty and with it all Canadians and he is a traitor as well as a war criminal for allowing Canada to participate in the criminal bombing of Libya. This is a sad thing to write, and it is even sadder that I experience a bit of nervousness for doing so, but I will not be silent.
