The Robber Barons were convinced there could be no accumulation of great monetary wealth if in fact they worked under the competitive dictates of capitalism and a laissez faire society. The only way these business giants of the industrial era—-the 2nd half of the 19th Century and into the early part of the 20th Century—-thought to gain power and control was by monopoly. Somewhere in that time period they figured out politicians could be their help mate and all they had to do was buy them.
The understanding of what happen up and through the 1945’s (FDR’s time) is critical in our ability to understanding what President Obama and his class of political renegades are doing to the country. (Remember FDR is President Obama’s hero) The ability of corporate American Business to appear capitalistic yet take on the almost complete actions of a Socialist entity has confused the American Citizen, info as is seen with the government bailouts and the FED’s with its QE’s releasing money and the buy back of government debt—-with no sane citizen quite understanding the WHY of the debt or what is happening.
We have slipped into such ignorance that we can not analyzes or think through what is happening to us. The”Educational System” has dumb the country & culture down at all levels, cost so as we understand nothing of liberty—-we see nothing of this transition from what the founding fathers were trying to create and what we have evolved into. Even with the rhetoric of the talk show guys, malady that does not get us to the answers nor the bottom of the issue—we see nothing of what is happening only the separation of maybe a possible right and wrong in its simplest form—even with that—we know nothing or the true effect of what is happening—–and we can do nothing in the way of changing directions or correction.
The driving out of competition would be denied by the citizen, the reduction of competition would also be denied, eliminating of Laissez faire and the getting of protection for those industrial giants through political action is not seen as evil by the citizens, even as it became critical to those business tycoons and “Robber Barons” and a major focus of them was to monopolize—-through government legislation.
The understanding of the difference between the Socialism/Communism for the people and culture is but a small step to understand what has happen to corporations and the business world. Government will control the people while forcing them into Socialist actions and behavior, even as we call ourselves a Republic under law, all the while business forces their rules and laws to be enacted by the government. Business uses and forces money and debt on to the people as the controlling mechanism for government, all the while government and the people are being used and controlled by the elite of the Business World & Wall Street—–as they strangle and monopolize the arena of competitive business. We have two different worlds, the world of business and the world of the social fabric (the people) both operating with their set of rules with little over lap, as we attempt to understand “Justice” and can’t.
This is a quote from the book by Antony Sutton “Wall Street and FDR” (1975)
“The difference between a corporate state monopoly and a socialist state monopoly is essentially only the identity of the group controlling the power structure.”
We have a serious problems as you might believe, the monopolizing of the various industry’s is working for the for Wall Street and the Business World as they attempt to maximize their control within that Industry and the Government—all the while liberty is slipping away from the citizen, along with his money as it is inflated away.
Understanding liberty and what has happen is essential in addressing the problem. Arguing points of correction will be useless, if in fact the problem is not defined to the degree that it can be isolated, only with isolation and the defining of the problem can we focus on the correction. There can be no correction of policy if in fact, the people, the Congress, the President will do nothing about evil. We have not isolated nor defined the problems (and the Republicans are not about to) therefore evil can not be addressed.
There can be no correcting of the “Educational System” if in fact, there is no acknowledgment that it is failing and/or worse it is teaching a subtle type of evil—–the evil of being ignorant as to what is going on——not knowing their struggling can never lead to correction..
There are now two types of “Robber Barons” one is a Government Socialism & the other a Corporate Socialism who help themselves to our tax money through legislation—–we have a major problem and the people had better wake-up to this fact pretty quick. Because the Republican Leadership will not tell you—–but will instead act as if they know nothing of what is or has happen——nor do the want to attempt to define the problem by framing the argument or telling the citizens the truth. The fact of the matter is all business monopolies start and eventually end up with some type of government legislation allowing business to control that part of their industry. The business buys and sells the politician in DC—while the tax payer (citizen) suffer—–and the problem is so much the bigger now—-because it is now a global affair—-with corruption piling on corruption.
Habakkuk 1:4 (KJV)
“Therefore the law is slacked, and judgment doth never go forth: for the wicked doth compass about the righteous; therefore wrong judgment proceedth.”
Note well— “… doth never go forth…” and “… wrong judgment proceeth.” Have we reached that point in the history of America?
We Shall See—–don’t you think?—I think 2013 shall have some unfolding and showing of what is to be.
HAPPY NEW YEAR (2013)
