A fish born into the ocean does not realize what the ocean is, or how it differs from lakes and rivers.

A human born into a century-long scam does not realize the scam. We take our environment for granted.

Mike Yeadon recently linked to this Substack post discussing the role of the Federal Reserve in the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank. Yeadon highlighted:

Mike's comment:

You wouldn’t ordinarily consider the possibility that the Federal Reserve has engineered the circumstances which has led to bank exposures and even failures. But knowing what we know, and recognising that those involved aren’t stupid, it’s got to be a possibility.

In which case they’ve just fired the starting gun on 2008 redux, only very much worse.

As I post this, the collapse has progressed:

The great Central Bank scam

A stable economy has no need for a central bank. All it needs is a mint, which standardizes money. To avoid economic upsets, a country can ban lending with interest and fractional reserve banking. The reasons for this are the same as why we ban gambling and drunk driving. An economy like this has no boom and bust cycles, no inflation, and is predictable for businesses to grow, and for people to save and invest.

Unlike a mint, a central bank facilitates large-scale economic theft. It has levers to create economic boom and bust cycles. These cycles are not natural and do not appear without central banking. The booms, the recessions and the depressions are not a bug. Their cycles are like breathing out and breathing in. With each cycle, more of the wealth is concentrated in the hands of the few who control central banking.

The way to reliably win in business is to know the future. The way to know the future is to control it. Friends of the central bank know what the future is going to be. They position themselves accordingly. When the central bank causes money to flow easily, the money first goes to friends of the central bank. They use it to buy up real assets. Then they deflate the money supply. This forces businesses and people to go bankrupt. In this system, money is created as debt, and debt has interest. When the money contracts, some of the debt can't be paid. But the people who go bankrupt are reliably those who aren't friends of the central bank.

Over time, this is how those who control central banking centralize control of the economy. At this point, they already control so much that they think they can just do one last breath, and they will control everything.

The US central bank, the Federal Reserve, is not constitutional. The US Constitution entrusts the federal government to standardize money. But the Federal Reserve does much more than that. It was founded in a coup in 1913. The same coup created the income tax, which is in-your-face, indirect slavery. The same people pulled the US into World War I, to create the League of Nations. The Federal Reserve was responsible for the Roaring 1920s, and then for the Great Depression. This was the first large cycle of breathing out, then breathing in. It led to a great concentration of wealth, which has increased since then.

The Federal Reserve is not federal, it has no reserves, and it's not a bank. It's a scam. The same people operate similar scams in most of the world's countries. The final purpose of this is total control. They aim to abolish private property, and own everything through a One World Government, under the flag of the UN.

This is how "You will own nothing, and you will be happy."

They tell you they're doing it, too. It was always in your face:

Check out the pyramid and the one eye. "Novus Ordo Seclorum" means "New Order of the Ages."
