Understanding the Game

The game is fixed!
The problem with our economy is that it’s fixed for the little guy (you and I) to lose and for The Man to always win. Here it is, in a nutshell. The problem is our Central Banking system and the Federal Reserve – a private company that recorded record profits over the course of this bailout crisis.

Here’s a quick 101… And believe me, The Ogre is no “expert” but you don’t have to be to understand this much…

A central Bank is an institution that produces the currency of an entire nation. Ours is called The Federal Reserve. The Fed has two specific powers: they control interest rates and the money supply (or inflation). The crux of the matter is that our Central Bank is about as “federal” as Federal Express. It is actually a private organization – a conglomerate of multinational banks that control wealth beyond measure. And it charges the Treasury — and hence, you, me, and every other taxpayer in America — for its services.

What's more, this private company makes its decisions behind closed doors with no transparency or input from our elected officials. Those decisions have astounding effect through every nook and cranny of the global financial system — affecting nations … governments … businesses … all the way down to you, me and every other individual on the planet whether they realize it or not.

Louis T. McFadden, Chairman of the House Banking and Currency Committee in 1932, had this to say:
“The sack of the United States by the Fed is the greatest crime in history. Every effort has been made by the Fed to conceal its powers, but the truth is the Fed has usurped the government. It controls everything here and it controls all our foreign relations. It makes and breaks governments at will.”

Here’s the scam. The Fed doesn’t simply supply our government’s economy with money, it loans it to us AT INTEREST. That means the government (i.e. We The People) are immediately in debt to a PRIVATE COMPANY (a group of bankers). It gets worse.

Through the use of increasing and decreasing the supply of money, the central bank regulates the value of the currency. See, not only can they charge you higher interest on your money; they can instantly debase the value of the currency they’re charging you for as well. It is critical to understand the entire structure of this system only produces on thing in the long run: DEBT. It’s not really an ingenious scam but it is a scam nonetheless. It is an inherently corrupt system.

Since the Central Bank has a monopoly over the production of currency for the entire country, and they loan each dollar out with immediate debt attached to it, where does the money to pay for the debt come from?

It can only come from the central bank again which means that the Central Bank has to PERPETUALLY increase its money supply to temporarily cover the outstanding debt created which in turn, since that new money is loaned out at interest as well, CREATES EVEN MORE DEBT. This point is crucial because even “real” money created from the ingenuity of American free enterprise (Google, Apple, and your “small” business) represents money that at one point or another was created by The Man, err the Fed.

This means that INFLATION IS A GUARANTEE!!! Accordingly, the end result of this system, without fail, is slavery, for it is IMPOSSIBLE for the government and thus the public to ever come out of the self generating DEBT.

Now, take this concept and really make it applicable to your EVERYDAY REALITY. You go to work and get taxed on the money you earn to service an immediate debt to a group of private bankers.
You need a reliable car to get to work. You need a place to live.
Maybe you think you don't make enough money so you take out a school loan.
In lieu of saving for a house, car, or even the latest Ipod, you charge it or take out a loan. Pretty soon, we're all working (as planned) to service The Man's debt. On the treadmill, like a hamster.
Is there any getting ahead?
