The Federal Reserve Explained in 3 Minutes

This video is only three minutes long. Take three minutes and listen and watch carefully!

Tales from the Conspiratum

Money – whether it’s a tangible piece of paper or a number on a screen – is intrinsically worthless, yet it fuels the modern world. In America the ultimate control of money rests with the bankers of the Federal Reserve System. Because of this it is detrimental that we as citizens understand how this shadowy – private – organization works and how its ultimate goal is to forever enslave us in a descending pit of debt that we will never crawl out of.

Today every human being should be Bertolt Brecht

Here is more from Brecht: (Thanks to Taking Sides</strong>)

My favorite Brecht poem:
To Posterity
by Bertolt Brecht
1.
Indeed I live in the dark ages!
A guileless word is an absurdity. A smooth forehead betokens
A hard heart. He who laughs
Has not yet heard
The terrible tidings.
Ah, what an age it is
When to speak of trees is almost a crime
For it is a kind of silence about injustice!
And he who walks calmly across the street,
Is he not out of reach of his friends
In trouble?
It is true: I earn my living
But, believe me, it is only an accident.
Nothing that I do entitles me to eat my fill.
By chance I was spared. (If my luck leaves me
I am lost.)
They tell me: eat and drink. Be glad you have it!
But how can I eat and drink
When my food is snatched from the hungry
And my glass of water belongs to the thirsty?
And yet I eat and drink.
I would gladly be wise.
The old books tell us what wisdom is:
Avoid the strife of the world
Live out your little time
Fearing no one
Using no violence
Returning good for evil —
Not fulfillment of desire but forgetfulness
Passes for wisdom.
I can do none of this:
Indeed I live in the dark ages!
2.
I came to the cities in a time of disorder
When hunger ruled.
I came among men in a time of uprising
And I revolted with them.
So the time passed away
Which on earth was given me.
I ate my food between massacres.
The shadow of murder lay upon my sleep.
And when I loved, I loved with indifference.
I looked upon nature with impatience.
So the time passed away
Which on earth was given me.
In my time streets led to the quicksand.
Speech betrayed me to the slaughterer.
There was little I could do. But without me
The rulers would have been more secure. This was my hope.
So the time passed away
Which on earth was given me.
3.
You, who shall emerge from the flood
In which we are sinking,
Think —
When you speak of our weaknesses,
Also of the dark time
That brought them forth.
For we went,changing our country more often than our shoes.
In the class war, despairing
When there was only injustice and no resistance.
For we knew only too well:
Even the hatred of squalor
Makes the brow grow stern.
Even anger against injustice
Makes the voice grow harsh. Alas, we
Who wished to lay the foundations of kindness
Could not ourselves be kind.
But you, when at last it comes to pass
That man can help his fellow man,
Do no judge us
Too harshly.

Norm’s note: the “Do no judge us / Too harshly” line is as it is written. I believe he’s drawing attention to being German and underscoring to the reader that he is speaking of his experience under Nazism.

Bertolt Brecht, is described as German poet, playwright and theater director. His works are recognized and rewarded with respect for internationally. He is the founder of “dialectical theater”. Brecht is defined himself as “communist”.

Here, some of his works,

………

I see the system. Its surface
Has long been known, but not the inner workings.
I see some people, a few on top and many down below,
and those on top shout down to those below: Come up, then all
of us will be on top.
But if you look closely
You’ll see a hidden something
Between the ones on top and those below.
It looks like a path, but no, it’s not a path.
More like a plank, and now you see it plainly,
it’s a seesaw. That’s it. This whole.

System’s a seesaw with two ends
Depending on each other.
Those on top are where they are because…
