After seeing a phenomenal three-part comment on the subject of democracy in the world and the drivers of progress and oppression, I feel the need to spread it around. The comments can be found on Reddit here, and its contents are as follows. Please refrain from adding this journal to your faves on dA, instead save it on Reddit or as a bookmark in your browser. Here goes:


Lets come to terms with the patterns that keep repeating globally everyone....

What my investigations have lead me to believe is that Democracy is no longer practised on the planet. It was practised previously but was quickly subverted and corrupted. It is a ruse. A clever system of control that give the people the illusion of freedom. “None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free”. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.

What we live in, is a plutocracy. Run by an oligarchy.…[1]

University Study demonstrating we live in an oligarchy run by a plutocracy -…[2][3]…[4]

Who destroyed democracy. The most powerful people on the planet. Who are the most powerful people on the planet? Well Money is power so - The most absurdly rich people on the planet. The elites. It has been proven that over 99% of the worlds wealth is literally in the hands of 0.01% of the population on the planet.…[5]…[6]

We have been born into an age where an economic model is in place that is inherently designed to do one thing. To forever preserve and enlarge the power of the ruling class of the planet. This is done through the monetary system and achieved through using a debt based system of control known as central banking. Central banking is the concept of allowing a privately owned corporation to control a countries money supply under the justification that it will control inflation.

The last 7 countries without a privately owned central bank that contains the usury principle (*the concept of interest) in 1999 were – Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Iran, North Korea, Cuba & Sudan. Notice a pattern with those countries and the last few countries who have been invaded recently. Every country that has been invaded has had a new central bank installed. Now there are only 3 countries left in the world without a privately owned central bank.

The premise of a privately owned central bank is that it LOANS a country money, with INTEREST. It calls in this loan regularly. The problem is, a country was only given X amount. If it needs to pay X amount back plus the interest of Y, how on earth can it pay Y? By taking out another loan. This time the sum of X + Y. The process repeats and locks the country into a debt cycle. One which can never be escaped. The world is 40 trillion dollars in debt. In debt to who I ask you? It is in debt to a tiny handful of the richest people in the world who are all part of a banking cartel that has existed since the 1600’s. The Rothschild’s are the most prominent and well known. The Rockefeller’s are another.…[7]…[8]

What happens when this process begins on a country. Privatisation. The countries resources that where once owned by the people progressively get sold off to attempt to pay this debt owed by using this privately controlled monetary system.

The consequences of privatisation become more and more severe over time. Privatisation means it is a privately owned enterprise providing a service under the reasoning it will be a more efficient model. Only a select few profit from providing this service though. The number one rule for a corporation is increased revenue. Continually increased profit. If a company does not continue to generate more profit than the last year it is considered stagnating and will be replaced and bought out by a company that does. The by-product of perpetually increasing corporate profits is perpetually increasing prices. Thus the wealth gap in the world is ever increasing.

You can see the stages of privatising over a country in debt as it progressively loses its public assets. Telecommunications is one of the 1st to go. Then transportation. The process continues over every public property until it reaches the loss of the water supply. It is at this stage a country is in serious financial hardship and begins to sell its RESOURCES at undervalued rates to corporations. But we don’t notice the same people whom we must sell these assets and resources to are the same people who have indebted us in the first place by imposing the economic model we use.

We look around seeing its getting harder and harder to survive, our wages barely go up if ever and yet its getting more and more expensive to live. As seem in the graphs above, the wealth gap is becoming larger and larger and the richest people in the world are the only people experiencing a progressive gain in quality of life all whilst everybody else’s quality of life is diminishing.

We are strung along with this notion that if we work hard enough we can become just like them. Rich, Successful… Powerful. This is an illusion. A concept to justify the system and to encourage people to participate in it. The only people who come close are those that are pioneers of world changing technology’s (such as bill gates). Even bill gates, is nothing compared to the power of the elites. Bill gates is a billionaire. The elites are worth TRILLIONS.

Propaganda in its current state is a relatively new and incredibly powerful tool. It is subversive and ever present in our society. As shown in the study above all corporations are owned through share divisions by the same core group of wealthy elites. This includes the corporations that own the media. To influence human beings thought patterns, all it takes is repetition. You merely surround them with an idea or image or sound repetitively over and over again and a person assumes they came to this opinion themselves. “If I see it everywhere or if people keep saying it everywhere it must be true”. Never before in the history of humanity has manipulation of the populace been so easy. The saturation of television, internet and mobile devices coupled with the progressive science of psychology has led to a new era of propaganda that is on a massive, far reaching, intelligent & psychologically manipulative scale that has never been seen before.

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” Joseph Goebbels (Nazi Propaganda specialist)

Recently Released Snowden Leaks Reveals How GCHQ/NSA Use The Internet To 'Manipulate, Deceive And Destroy Reputations' of activists.…[10]…[11]

“Democracy is a con game. It’s a word invented to placate people to make them accept a given institution. All institutions sing, ‘We are free.’ The minute you hear ‘freedom’ and ‘democracy’, watch out… because in a truly free nation, no one has to tell you you’re free.” - Jacque Fresco

False flag attacks. Historical events in which a governing institution attacks itself in order to force its peoples to turn to the state to ask for assistance from an enemy, in the process giving up civil liberties and making the state more powerful. Also used as a pretext to sway public opinion into accepting their nation using imperialism to further its strength globally.…[12]…[13]

So, corporations are all owned by the wealthy elite. They have manipulated and subverted free societies into accepting economic models which are DESIGNED to enslave that nation into debt so that all resources and systems are under their control, even the system of how the nation is governed. Lobbyists spend billions “persuading” our representatives to legislate the corporations ever increasing freedoms. All whilst our own personal liberties are being eroded.

These institutions were here before you were born. That’s why we think this is normal. “Its just business”, “Its just the way the world works”. This is not normal. This is not freedom. This is modern free range slavery delivered in such a subversive way that we cannot see our own prison. Yet we all know something is wrong. You just look around and you see it everywhere. Poverty. Starvation (All whilst current agricultural means are producing over 100% of the world’s food supply needs). War. ENDLESS war. In the entire time I have been alive I cannot remember a time where war was not being waged.

“WAR is a racket. It always has been. It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives. A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of the people. Only a small "inside" group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few, at the expense of the very many. Out of war a few people make huge fortunes. In the World War [I] a mere handful garnered the profits of the conflict. At least 21,000 new millionaires and billionaires were made in the United States during the World War. That many admitted their huge blood gains in their income tax returns. How many other war millionaires falsified their tax returns no one knows.” A speech delivered in 1933, by Major General Smedley Butler, USMC.

War is a commodity. War is profit. War is a mechanism used to destroy a host nations leader when they are not willing to bend to the will on the wealthy elites in their desire for resources or accepting the current economic model of control using a central bank. Every player in a war is funded by these wealthy elites. As waging war is expensive and creates more debt to that country. Destroying property means it requires to be rebuilt, which further funnels money into the corporations. It is pure profit in the hands of the people that own all the companies. The loss of millions of lives is irrelevant to the military industrial complex.

Short clip of USA General Wesley Clark talking about the 7 countries America intend to invade and in what order.…

Money is power. Money is control. Without money you starve and are homeless. So you are free to enrol in the labour force or die. Money doesn’t mean anything to the people who own it all. They know it means nothing. They trick us into believing it means something but to them it is just POWER. The amount of money they have allows them to influence and control every nation on every level of the nation’s faculties and operations.…

The last American president who attempted to expose this was JFK. He was assassinated. He intended to stop using a central bank and allow the country to print its own money once more, debt free. He also intended to stop the war machine.

The concept of a powerful countries leader being assassinated to create a new hierarchy and power structure is known as a coup d’etat. A coup d'état also known as a coup, a putsch, or an overthrow, is the sudden and illegal seizure of a government, usually instigated by a small group of the existing state establishment to depose the established government and replace it with a new ruling body, civil or military. A coup d'état is considered successful when the usurpers establish their dominance. When the coup neither fails completely nor succeeds, a civil war is a likely consequence. A coup d'état typically uses the extant government's power to assume political control of the country. In Coup d'État: A Practical Handbook[page needed], military historian Edward Luttwak states that "[a] coup consists of the infiltration of a small, but critical, segment of the state apparatus, which is then used to displace the government from its control of the remainder." The armed forces, whether military or paramilitary, can be a defining factor of a coup d'état.

If you think the concept that America has undergone a coup d’etat is unlikely, think again. An attempt was already made prior to JFK 30 years ago, against President rosevelt. The attempted coup d’état was allegedly orchestrated by Prominent wealthy businessmen.… In 1933 a plot to subvert a free peoples government was whistle blown by USMC General Smedley Butler and THAT is the only reason it did not succeed. 30 years later though…

People who delve down the path of not trusting government institutions do not call themselves conspiracy theorists. This is a word, which appeared in the 50’s and has been credited to the CIA and their program operation mockingbird.……

What do you think when you hear the word CONSPIRACY THEORIST. I’ll take a guess, you think CRAZY. This is the power of repetition and programming. You hear those words used in conjunction often enough it becomes an association. People who have gone down a path of questioning the system, questioning their own reality and investigating how the current social, economic, political and environmental constructs human beings have put into place actually work do not call themselves this. They call themselves Critical Thinkers.

It is to assess information without believing it and to fact check things you are told yourself and to be open minded to any new information presented to you even if it is contrary to your beliefs or current understanding of how things work.

"For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence--on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations. Its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no rumour is printed, no secret is revealed." – JFK.

This speech was given 2 years before his assassination and it was about the spread of communism. I place this quote here because, others theorise it was saying something else. It was a foreshadowing about something JKF become aware of once in office. That it was an address to the world about the banking institutions in place and the stranglehold they had over sovereign nation’s freedoms. You decide for yourself.

Here’s some quotes from one of the wealthiest people on the planet who are part of the central banking group of the world.

“We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost 40 years......It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supernational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto determination practiced in past centuries.”

― David Rockefeller ( in regards to his attending of the Bilderberg group yearly meetings )…

“For more than a century ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized incidents such as my encounter with Castro to attack the Rockefeller family for the inordinate influence they claim we wield over American political and economic institutions. Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as 'internationalists' and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure--one world, if you will. If that's the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.” ― David Rockefeller

What is the purpose of controlling everything? What is the theorised goal of the people in charge at the moment? History repeats itself. It is the same goal that every previous conqueror has had. One government. One Nation. One Currency. One New World Order. This is the height of what EVERY person who’s ambition is to conquer and control the free world has had, through-out the history of humanity.

And people have virtually achieved it before, though each time it has collapsed on itself. Ghangis Khan, Alexander the great… The Roman Empire, The British Empire. Each great conqueror or group has attempted to enact it through force and then maintain it through different models of control. This is what is happening now. This time, the conquering is being done in a new way. Through individual state/government corruption. Through privatisation. Through anonymity. Through multinational corporations that are owned by another corporation and another and another etc etc so that no one is ever to blame.

Conquerors have learned that if you are a figure head, your head eventually becomes a target and is chopped off. That’s the purpose of the 2 party system. You get sick of one head you remove it and another one steps in. The process repeats over and over again, each time having the people believe THIS TIME things will be different. The illusion of freedom. The illusion of choice.

Civil Liberties. We are watching our civil liberties evaporate under the guise of protecting us from a foreign enemy. This is a control mechanism used by the state, the concept of perpetual enemies. A justification for a need of the state to exist and to allow it to continually exercise and expand its powers. Read or watch 1984 by George Orwell. This book is an allegory attempting to warn the public of the future if we do not become aware of what is happening NOW.

“Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.” Benjamin Franklin

It wasn’t so long ago the idea of the government listening into all of your phone calls was considered a silly conspiracy theory that was shouted out by tin foil hat wearing crazies. Lets explore what the government has the power to do openly through legislation and what is currently being done in secret (which is known due to the whistle-blower’s like snowden and wiki leaks).

Arrest without charge

Indefinite detention of any foreign citizen or national citizen

Torture whilst in custody

Public & Covert Propaganda

False Flag Attacks

Execution without judicial process

Warrantless monitoring and access to ALL data that exists within the world on you from any governing body or private organization.

This includes your every location with gps in your phone. Every transaction on your bank accounts. Every phone call and text. Every email. If you have a fly buys card or rewards card, every purchase of product you have made. Every illness or incident within the medical system. Every private legal interaction with a lawyer. Complete access to your computer through built in software & HARDWARE backdoors including through encryption.

If a person told you that 10 years ago you would have called him crazy. Now this is just LAW. We are seeing this slow progressive conditioning to the people to accept this level of invasion into our personal lives so that the next generation just think this is NORMAL. This is the most dangerous thing any “Free” society can ever do to itself.

What happens if you find out the government doesn’t work for you and now considers YOU the enemy. All it takes is one slip, one “Threat” to declare an expansion of these laws onto you and I and then we are left in a position where it is extremely difficult, if not impossible, to take your liberties back from a government that no longer represents your interests.

I’m not trying to scare you, that couldn’t be farther from the truth. I’m doing what I think is right instead of becoming aware of injustice and doing nothing. I’m trying to help you question your surroundings. To question the path we are on. To question the system you were born into. All it takes to start a positive change in the world is awareness. If enough of us gain a fundamental understanding of some of the destructive and dangerous sociological mechanics we are witnessing in the world, we can fix the problems NOW. Real change is possible. It’s just a choice you have to make.

I highly recommend watching some documentaries about these phenomena and to begin your own research into global, social and economic affairs. There are endless articles, films and blogs talking about these issues.
