Throwing in the towel
It was a damn fine read.
Though their ads made me a bit suspicious...
Yea... that makes sense.
And to all the conspiracy folk out there... a lot of you preach about how great Ron Paul is but then I doubt a single one of you has read all of his books or even a couple of them.
"Some of our political allies charge that the powerful elite who run things and are found repeatedly in the Fed, the Treasury, and the Presidency plan and purposely cause certain events like 9-11 and our current financial crisis. I don't believe that. But I do believe that many members of the elite make the best they can out of certain events because they facilitate their efforts to achieve their goals. Rahm Emanuel, Obama's chief of staff, said recently: "You never want a serious crisis to go to waste." Obama concurred with Emanuel's assessment.
Many of the laws passed after 9-11 had already been proposed prior to the event, but rejected. Economic planners have many plans to socialize our economy and globalize the effort- if only the people will accept it. And why? Socialization always and everywhere means more power to the state, more control to bureaucrats, more security to the elites, and always at to the expense of the rest of us. Economic chaos assists in this effort.
But to purposely bring on catastrophic events such as the current situation would be a bad move for anyone, because this level of calamity can pose danger even to the insiders. Wealth loss by deflation and inflation can affect everyone. Political chaos is not always beneficial to those in charge and may in fact be a danger to them.
In any case, I believe that concentrating too much on the Fed "conspiracy," one that supposedly works hand in hand with Congress, gives the system more credit or blame than it deserves and distracts from the more important issue of bad ideology. Authoritarianism, supporting statism on moral grounds for whatever reason, is the real threat." - Excerpts from Chapter 8 of "End the Fed"
