Banks Finance Wars

Good Morning. I hate mornings, but you are my whip. Thank you for this valuable interview with David Swan. I respect and admire Mr. Swan for putting out his message, but I tend to disagree with him in some areas, as in the idea that we can reform U.S. Governement and political body or their foreign policies without addressing the banks. Banks are international parties, not national. They can shift the wealth around anyway they choose. They have done so since their inception. What will happen if the rich are taxed? Essentially they will take it out on their own customers, the consumers without much conscious thought at all, as they have so proven to do in all profit bearing situations. That seems pretty obvious to me, hopefully to many of your listeners as well. One way or the other, the consumers, the working class will bear the burden, as it always has. It has also been proven that you cannot have a wealthy class without the slaves and the poor.

We are not going anywhere while we allow an international banking cartel to run all the shows and governments, parlimants and or congresses or Presidents around the world. In all countries where the banks hold the power to either threaten your physical person or your psychology or your known way of life, then no matter what country being represented, you are on the hook. Banks influence many aspects that lead to war, they influence the peoples beliefs about wars and it's fairly easy for them to do that when they finance the existing media sources, entertainment modules, communication devices, technology and research of tools and medicine. There is really no escaping doing exactly what they want. And, it would also appear as though, if the people don't bend over when instructed, they will not survive.

Once we are beyond the incredible need for the politics (the money), we can get beyond the need for war. The war machine is built by borrowed money and the people back it up when economy matters look ugly. They enlist when there is a shortage of jobs. They work for companies developing tools for the military, whom have received the funding. They pay the higher prices when the inflation hits. So, it all shows up ugly eventually. The people as they stand, don't stand a chance against the efforts of the banks. The banks are unified, the corporate protocal is a united front that the people are compelled to stay employed by. The people are scattered and are also placed in competion with one another for the same chance of survival. I agree most definitely with Swan on the issue that abandoning the corporate funded media icons and moving my support to independent media outlets, like yours, is a strong spoke in the wheel toward peace. Doing this with food sources would also help, and building local community structures that don't rely on the heavy financing.

Narrow-mindedness always fails. Why do these politicians not react appropriately after getting a warning that a danger exists? If we can be lied to to fall head over heels into a war on repeated occasions with an incident or an attack allowed to happen, then we really are not receiving the protection the government is claiming to provide. We should recognize that first of all, but then not approve them to ask for more investments to build a bigger and stronger castle that we are not allowed into. There must be a motive to some market somewhere. The money has the most lobbyists, the most followers, the most supporters. Who has the power (the money) to drive vehicles into a tree and benefit from it? If the money is being held over the people and their supposedly elected officials, it is simply an allegiance to fiat, not anything of true value to human kind.

Money creates these compulsions. The people are just bystanders that can be swayed.
