Dateline California, 11/23/2008,
I'd like to know why abolishing the “money as debt” paradigm that is legally implemented by the Federal Reserve System, isn't Lyndon LaRouche's overarching, coherent, and very first-order solution?
His prescription, as reproduced below, is only useful as a bandaid – or more accurately, as a topical treatment – of the current financial crisis, and by keeping the systemic illness intact, undiagnosed, latent, it leaves wide open the monetary conspiracy for world government under control of the private central banks:
' “This is the big explosion, detonating right now,” LaRouche warned. “And so far, I am offering the only coherent solution--bankruptcy reorganization of the entire global financial system--starting with the cancellation of all derivatives obligations. My solution poses an existential threat to the entire Anglo-Dutch financial system of globalization. I know it, many leading bankers and government officials around the world know it, and, of course, the British know it. This is why the fear has turned to outright panic. We are nearing the showdown moment.” ' ( LaRouche: From Fear To Panic As Derivatives Crash Hits, Nov. 21, 2008. )
Indeed, if one examines Larouche's documentary film “1932” about President FDR's New Deal presented in the backdrop of a broad swipe of Anglo-American history, one notices, amidst the excellent explanation of the British Empire and its organized global free trade, amidst accurate analysis of Lincoln's stance against the British imperialists, and amidst the insightful exposition of post Civil War miracle of industrialization of the American continent and the lead up to FDR, the bizarre praise of Alexander Hamilton.
Hamilton was the first Secretary of Treasury of the newly founded United States of America, the man behind the Bank of North America, and the First Bank of the United States, America's own private central 'Bank of England'. Please visit the U.S. Treasury website, referenced in the letter below, which quotes Alexander Hamilton: “The United States debt, foreign and domestic, was the price of liberty.” The documentary “1932” at minute 63, in praise of FDR, narrates: “Hamilton lived in Roosevelt”!
The documentary talks of Hamilton's assassination by Burr, the Vice President of the United States, but not of Hamilton's association with Robert Morris, Thomas Wiling, and other banksters affiliated with the Bank of England and the Rothschild money who contrived the construction of private central banking in the newly independent nation. It does not mention Thomas Jefferson's and James Madison's staunch opposition to private central banking, nor Jefferson's famous missive:
“If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issuance of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations which grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wakeup homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.”
The documentary stays silent on Lincoln's famous Greenback currency, even as it speaks of his amazing transcontinental rail project, envisioned to unite the world's land masses which surely must have posed an existential threat to the English domination of sea based world trade. The documentary movie, in all its praise of President Lincoln, attempts to wipe away from memory, Lincoln's most famous stance against the central banksters, and his most significant contribution to national finance and economics – money coined by the state in the service of its peoples without paying gratuitous interest to private bankers:
“The Government should create, issue, and circulate all the currency and credit needed to satisfy the spending power of the Government and the buying power of the consumers.”
“The privilege of creating and issuing money is not only the supreme prerogative of Government, but it is the Government's greatest creative opportunity.”
“By the adoption of these principles ... the taxpayers will be saved immense sums of interest. Money will cease to be master and become the servant of humanity.”
It is not clear to this scribe, if the very learned Mr. Larouche is a nuanced and expert disinformationist, a rational spokesperson for private central banking keeping their axioms alive and well hidden from public view amidst his other accurate rehearsals and analysis of history, or simply beyond ordinary people's ordinary ken. Mr. Larouche does claim to have a superfluity of intelligence, and claims, in one of his narratives on his websites, to be among the handful – four or five – peoples on the planet who solely understand macro economics. His prolific work is a minefield of information, but also of critical omissions which lead to strategic misdiagnosing of problems, and hence advocacy of faulty solutions.
While it is appropriate to say that LaRouche's analysis of history on many points remains accurate, even insightful, it is also accurate to say that his errors of omission and subtle distortions make him an unreliable source of accurately comprehending history, economics, and everything else, because, how can one trust a source that makes such blatant errors of omission?
Here are a few more examples of omission in “1932” that require explanation. LaRouche caters to the paranoia of world government in the documentary, which is indeed a very real and non-immanent threat today, but lays the blame on everyone else, except the key banksters! The bad guy is the British imperialist, but not those who have ruled the British empire for over 300 years, the private central bank, the Bank of England and those who control it.
The documentary mentions J.P. Morgan banking interests on Wall Street as the British empire's front, and projects Morgan interests solely working for the British imperialists – but does not mention J.P. Morgan being a front for the Rothschild banking family who financed not only Morgan and controlled the Bank of England, but many of Britain's and America's monopolist industrialists, from Herriman to Rockefeller, Cecil Rhodes to Alfred Milner. The latter founded the Round Tables, precursor to the Council on Foreign Relations in the United States, and the Royal Institute of International Affairs in the UK. None of this early history of the twentieth century is revealed in “1932” amidst its other history lessons pre and post World War I.
The documentary talks of the financial collapse on Wall Street during the Great Depression, but does not mention its key root cause – the control of money supply in the hands of a private central banking cartel owned and controlled by a few powerful men! Just as Mr. LaRouche also does not mention the same root cause once again for the present financial collapse when he advocates “the only coherent solution--bankruptcy reorganization of the entire global financial system--starting with the cancellation of all derivatives obligations”.
And reaching its climax, the documentary lauds FDR's stance against the eastern establishment, mentions Wall Street's attempted fascist takeover of the White House, mentions the role of Hjalmar Schacht in creatively financing Nazi Germany aided and abetted by Wall Street including Prescott Bush, but does not mention FDR's confiscation of American people's gold by autocratic fiat, nor FDR's affiliation with the Reichsbank's president – a Harvard co-alumni – nor how the notorious Nazi bankster went scot-free at Nuremberg at the behest of the powerful governor of Bank of England, Sir Montagu Norman (see Monetary Reform: Who will bell the cat? ).
To a mere student of history, it appears that Mr. Lyndon LaRouche and his team of narrators rewrite history very very sophisticatedly with the apparent goal of obfuscating the key role of “money”, its monopolistic control by private central banksters, and the immense power and influence that is derived from the control of a nation's money supply. There is a complete absence of this Rothschild maxim from the documentary “Give me control of a nation's money supply, and I care not who makes its laws”. LaRouche and the various narrators who appear in the documentary instead focus on its effects, the evil empire, and not the cause, the interest paid on “money as debt” to private central banks by a public. The documentary ignores Benjamin Franklin's observations in his autobiography on the real prime-mover cause for the Revolutionary War:
“The colonies would gladly have borne the little tax on tea and other matters had it not been that England took away from the colonies their money, which created unemployment and dissatisfaction. The inability of the colonists to get power to issue their own money permanently out of the hands of George III and the international bankers was the PRIME reason for the Revolutionary War.”
And Ben Franklin was specifically referring to the “inability of the colonists” to return to those prosperous years that existed a few decades prior to the Revolutionary War when the colonies had printed their own money, debt-free, called 'colonial scrip', and had learnt of its enormous benefits towards self-sufficiency and prosperity for all:
“In the Colonies we issue our own money. It is called Colonial Scrip. We issue it in proper proportion to the demands of trade and industry to make the products pass easily from the producers to the consumers. In this manner, creating for ourselves our own money, we control its purchasing power, and we have no interest to pay to no one.”
This was precisely what Lincoln repeated with the Greenbacks during the Civil War. Neither historical fact made it into “1932”, the documentary!
This tendency, of carefully masking the controlling role of whoever coins money in the affairs and travails of a nation, and the world today, appears to be a common trait among many a prominent leader and scholar of West's famed dissent-space.
It is never easy to catch the errors of subtle omission and subtle distortion of perspective. Like minor quantum-mechanical perturbation, or the flapping of butterfly wings in non-linear systems, they can lead to entirely different conclusion-spaces, and make great red herrings. Which is why, such disinformation is so sophisticated, and indeed priceless! It could also of course be merely the misperception of limited acumen unable to appreciate genius.
Therefore, in order to adjudicate fairly, please review Project Humanbeingsfirst's report dated November 23, 2008: The Enduring Capitalist Conspiracy For World Government
and compare to LaRouche documentary “1932”: http://www.larouchepac.com/1932
and make up your own mind.
If Project Humanbeingsfirst has made an unfortunate error of judgement, or misperception, and can be shown it convincingly with evidence rather than mere assertions, it would be of great benefit to be able to revise one's understanding of history. To that end, we make a plea – please study the cited works, and either write a letter to editor Project Humanbeingsfirst, or to Mr. Lyndon LaRouche, providing your opinion. Similarly, find those who omit “money as debt”, and central-banking, from their learned discourses as they vociferously rile against the sins of empire, and write them asking the reason for this omission!
It may arguably be useful that in the combined interest of dissent against tyranny and servitude, one ought to come together on common ground towards creating critical mass – even while disagreeing – and hence some measure of efficacy. But it is most assuredly in the interest of dissent, without question, to expose the latent and the un-apparent in order to not be led astray. Price of dissent, as that of democracy – and perhaps the twain are indeed the same thing – is “eternal vigilance”, tous azimuth!
And therefore – at the risk of sounding platitudinous – asking questions, and seeking resolutions, is the sine qua non of informed democracy, which in turn, that of any form of genuine Republic. And in such a non-oligarchic governance system, control of money appears to be the sine qua non of both liberty and justice. Those who ignore this question, cannot possibly be the friends of any plebes who entirely pay for it in life-long servitude to debt.
