PART 2

By Marilyn MacGruder Barnewall

July 6, 2014NewsWithViews.com[NOTE: For those who will react to this article by commenting on alternative currencies like Bit Coin, please read my News With Views article on that topic here. Almost everything I predicted about how Bit Coin could be brought down or controlled by the federal government has occurred since the article was written.

]It’s important for you to know these things because as long as you don’t know them, you can be manipulated by those who do not have your interest – or that of America – at heart.Hopefully, you realize the reason the United States is in such dire economic straits is largely because the people of America have enabled corruption at high levels.

We, the people, did not take our responsibilities as a free society seriously and preferred television and other forms of entertainment to learning what we need to know to make sure those we elect to represent them are doing their job – rather than stealing from them.First, the traditional definition of fiat currency – a paper currency with no value unless backed by something with a defined value, like precious metals. Paper currency that is not backed by something of value is… worthless.

I disagree with the traditional definition because the currency of the United States and other nations, too is backed by the taxpayers. As long as taxpayers can be put in prison for not paying their taxes, paper currency is backed by the tyrannical threat of government actions against taxpayers.As long as government can penalize your bank account and it can under Dodd-Frank and your IRA or pension and it can, the fiat currency controlled by the Federal Reserve System is not worthless.

The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of.”–Edward Bernays PropagandaBy Kenneth Antonhenrymakow.comEdward Bernays, the godfather of modern public relations, says “the invisible government which dictates our thoughts, directs our feelings and controls our actions.”

ACIM Chap 27 – “Hero” of the Dream

December 31, 2013 1 comment

EXCERPT !!!!!!
The dreaming of the world takes many forms, because the body seeks in many ways to prove it is autonomous and real. It puts things on itself which it has bought with little metal discs or paper strips the world proclaims as valuable and good. It works to get them, doing senseless things, and tosses them away for senseless things it does not need, and does not even want.

It hires other bodies, that they may protect it, and collect more senseless things that it can call its own. It looks about for special bodies which can share its dream. Sometimes it dreams it is a conqueror of bodies weaker than itself. But in some phases of the dream, it is the slave of bodies that would hurt and torture it.

Pope Francis has taken aim at capitalism as “a new tyranny” and is urging world leaders to step up their efforts against poverty and inequality, saying “thou shall not kill” the economy. Francis calls on rich people to share their wealth.

The existing financial system that fuels the unequal distribution of wealth and violence must be changed, the Pope warned.
