Albert Einstein challenged us to break the shackles of the illusion of separateness and embrace interdependence:
"A human being is a part of the whole, called by us Universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest-a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole nature in its beauty."
“Millions of families . . . are kept in debt and are in over their heads not just because of their own purchases . . . but because of the abusive practices and excesses of the credit card companies.”
Let's face it, Money no longer has any real worth. But YOU do. So is it any surprise the super-rich want to own you?
The Credit Card Industry and Predatory Capitalism
The booming credit card business is one of the most profitable and destructive industries to ever emerge from the inventive capitalist mind. Citibank is raking in more money than Microsoft and Wal-Mart. Obscene profits are realized without lifting a finger to perform any physical work. In

World military expenditure in 2005 is estimated to have reached $1001 billion at constant (2003) prices and exchange rates, or $1118 billion in current dollars. This corresponds to 2.5 per cent of world GDP or an average spending of $173 per capita. World military expenditure in 2005 presents a real terms increase of 3.4 per cent since 2004, and of 34 per cent over the 10-year period 1996–2005. The
The process of concentration of military expenditure continued in 2005 with a decreasing number of countries responsible for a growing proportion of spending: the 15 countries with the highest spending now account for 84 per cent of the total. The
VIDE JURIDIQUE En Irak, 20 000 hommes armés n’obéissent pas aux ordres d’officiers supérieurs mais aux PDG de Blackwater, Global Risks ou DynCorp.

En 1995-1996, des mercenaires embauchés en Bosnie par la société américaine DynCorp sont impliqués dans une affaire de racket et de trafic d’adolescentes. Quelle a été leur sanction ? Ils ont simplement été licenciés. DynCorp a continué à recevoir de juteux contrats de la part de l’administration américaine. En Irak, des employés de deux autres sociétés militaires privées, CACI International et Titan Corporation, sont accusés d’avoir organisé des actes de torture à la prison d’Abou Ghraib. Contrairement aux militaires, condamnés à de la prison ferme, les mercenaires ont échappé aux sanctions. En effet, selon la loi militaire, un civil n’est pas passible de
United Nations: The world's oil, gas and mining industries account for nearly two-thirds of all violations of human rights, environmental laws and international labor standards, according to a soon-to-be-released United Nations study.
The food and beverages industry is a distant second, followed by apparel, footwear, and the information and communications technology sector.
The extractive industries - oil, gas and mining - also account for most allegations of the worst abuses, up to and including complicity in crimes against humanity," says the interim report titled "Promotion and Protection of Human Rights". A more detailed study is expected to be released later this year.
These are typically for acts committed by public and private security forces protecting company assets and property; large-scale corruption; violations of labor rights; and a broad array of abuses in relation to local communities, especially the indigenous peoples.

Remember the Wall Street crash of October 1987 when stocks had their worst single day in history? Older market professionals certainly do. They also recall that the 1987 crash came after a sharp weakening of the US dollar and a rally in stocks. Is that not what we are seeing again now?
The United States currency also tumbled to its weakest level against the British pound in 26 years as investors bet the Federal Reserve will cut borrowing costs later this year while the European Central Bank and Bank of England raise rates. The dollar dropped last week against 14 of the 16 most actively traded currencies tracked by Bloomberg News.
Malaysian Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said his country has shifted some of its $82 billion of currency reserves away from the dollar and that potential foreign-exchange volatility may hurt exporters.
Yet another economic defection from the dollar; and how many more are to come?

The ruling class has the schools and press under its thumb. This enables it to sway the emotions of the masses.
If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their money, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them (around the banks), will deprive the people of their property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.
John F. Hylan
The real menace of our Republic is the invisible government which like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy legs over our cities states and nation. At the head is a small group of banking houses generally referred to as 'international bankers.' This little coterie... run our government for their own selfish ends. It operates under cover of a self-created screen...[and] seizes...our executive officers... legislative bodies... schools... courts... newspapers and every agency created for the public protection.
Gaius Julius Caesar
Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.
Charles A. Lindbergh
This Act (the Federal Reserve Act, Dec. 23rd 1913) establishes the most gigantic trust on earth. When the President (Woodrow Wilson) signs the Bill, the invisible government of the Monetary Power will be legalised... The worst legislative crime of the ages is perpetrated by this banking and currency Bill.
History records that the money changers have used every form of abuse, intrigue, deceit, and violent means possible to maintain their control over governments by controlling the money and its issuance.
When a government is dependent upon bankers for money, they and not the leaders of the government control the situation, since the hand that gives is above the hand that takes. Money has no motherland; financiers are without patriotism and without decency; their sole object is gain.
When a government takes over a people's economic life it becomes absolute, and when it has become absolute it destroys the arts, the minds, the liberties and the meaning of the people it governs.
Mayer Amschel Rothschild
Give me control of a nation's money and I care not who makes the laws.
It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning.
If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be.
Robert A. Heinlein
Secrecy is the beginning of tyranny.
William Lyon Mackenzie King
Once a nation parts with the control of its currency and credit, it matters not who makes the nations laws. Usury, once in control, will wreck any nation. Until the control of the issue of currency and credit is restored to government and recognized as its most sacred responsibility, all talk of the sovereignty of parliament and of democracy is idle and futile.
In the absence of the gold standard, there is no way to protect savings from confiscation through inflation. ... This is the shabby secret of the welfare statists' tirades against gold. Deficit spending is simply a scheme for the confiscation of wealth. Gold stands in the way of this insidious process. It stands as a protector of property rights. If one grasps this, one has no difficulty in understanding the statists' antagonism toward the gold standard.
Major L. L. B. Angus
The modern Banking system manufactures money out of nothing. The process is perhaps the most astounding piece of sleight of hand that was ever invented. Banks can in fact inflate, mint and unmint the modern ledger-entry currency.
Believe nothing merely because you have been told it. Do not believe what your teacher tells you merely out of respect for the teacher. But whatsoever, after due examination and analysis, you find to be kind, conducive to the good, the benefit, the welfare of all beings -- that doctrine believe and cling to, and take it as your guide.
The issue which has swept down the centuries and which will have to be fought sooner or later is the people versus the banks.
The powers of financial capitalism had (a) far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in
