The world is full of people paying for the economic fraud of unelected, rapacious and sociopathic dictators.
Latin America and Africa tend to be the hardest hit by this phenomena.
This is what happens:
Mr. Tin Pot Dictator runs up an incredible debt buying gold cadillacs and weapons with which to dominate and exploit the people of his country. The people suffer miserably, the Dictator lives a lavish lifestyle above the law until he is deposed in some manner, then the banks move in and enslave the people and control the sociopolitical landscape by leveraging that illegitimate debt against the progress of the population, innocent victims of authoritarian rule.
It seems to me that there’s been a quickening of this trend, and it’s taken place right here in America – naked right in the open. Bankers have muscled out the middle man, the Tin Pot Dictator, and have become the Dictators themselves.
Enter the Golden Throne Dictator
In an amazing display of hubris, the finance industry has undertaken a financial coup of the most powerful country on the planet, and it looks as if they’re going to get away with it.
With the full support of the corporate media, global financiers have infiltrated and usurped the power of sovereign nations:
“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 forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the bright lights of publicity during these years.”
David Rockefeller, 1991
Of course the coup is not yet final, and there are still loose ends to be tied up, but can anybody doubt the pickle that we’ve been put in here by the banks?
Apparently we were “…3 hrs away from Economic, Political Collapse in September 2008” not to mention Martial Law.
I mean to be alarmist here.
I don’t think any of the RSAs here on dKos have any idea what we could be facing in our near term future.

For a long time, I’ve been saying that the reason there’s been so much inaction towards the massive and catastrophic problems facing the planet is that the ruling elite wish to break it all right now in order to go out on top. You may have recommended it.
If it all comes crashing down all at once the Masters of the Universe own:
- a compliant and friendly media
- corporate sponsored politicians
- the powers of production
- the military
- all of our mortgaged and soon to be defaulted assets
The notion that we have a high level of home ownership in America has always made me laugh.
You don’t own your home, the bank does. Until you have the deed in your hand, you are nothing more than an indentured renter. Millions of Americans are realizing that as they are kicked out of their homes and onto the street.
It used to make me laugh and feel smart because I knew something that most people don’t, but now it just makes me angry; angry and sad.
There are more than our homes on the line, which is also something that I noticed a few years ago.
We can’t feed ourselves without their permission.
We can’t get water. Healthcare? Come on! Scared and sick people are easy to exploit.
We can’t do a damn thing without their blessing.
And guess what? They’re moving on us right this very minute.
I’m not going to talk about the finance industry’s tyrannical control over our economy, although it’s easy to see; more and more naked every day.
I feel euphemising the rape and pillage of a wonderful country by talking of the economy simply hides the naked truth of the crime.
The Wall Street Dictators are not dominating and ruining our economy, it’s people that are being dominated and ruined – real live breathing people in one of the most diverse and wonderful countries in human history.
The Wall Street Dictators are robbing people, exploiting people, and killing people.
If we don’t create big change, we will be enslaved.
That’s the endgame, folks.
At this very moment, the American people are sitting across the chessboard from Gary Fischer and we think we’re playing checkers.
We think this moment in history is about us.
We think it’s about our wealth and wellbeing – about our 401Ks and our mortgages.
We think we are valuable to them as consumers.
Doesn’t anybody realize that we’re no longer customers?
Customers are valuable, they should be retained, given good products, taken care of.
Consumers on the other hand?
They just eat shit.
This moment in history is not about us. It’s not about our homes. It’s not about our jobs. This moment in history is about people v profit. It’s about a People’s Democracy or a corporate Dictatorship. It’s about guaranteeing a people’s future or Future Profits.
This is the moment of truth and we don’t even have a clue.
Wall Street Dictatorship and Captive Markets
“You can’t fight city hall.”
What a crock of shit!
You can’t fight the Golden Rule:
He who has the gold, makes the rules.
Right now we are looking squarely at global enslavement by a financial elite – a global tyranny of finance and we are giving them money. We are throwing trillions of dollars at corrupt bankers that are going to foreclose on our future.
They will not help us out they will continue to exploit us until we are utterly and completely bankrupt and until our government, the only institution can can protect us from that exploitation, is bankrupt.
We will become the wet dream of corrupt capitalists: captive markets.
