As we approach the centennial of World War I, we will read much of the blunders that produced that tragedy of Western civilization.
Among them will be the “blank check” Kaiser Wilhelm II gave to Vienna after the assassination by a Serb terrorist of the Austrian Archduke Francis Ferdinand.
These banking families and their subservient beneficiaries have come to own most major businesses over the two centuries during which they have secretly and increasingly organised themselves as controllers of governments worldwide and as arbiters of war and peace.
And as result, the wrong kinds of wealth -- today, that's mostly financial assets -- are valued and pursued. And just like those bubbles from centuries ago, when the current asset boom goes bust, the value of paper wealth will vaporize.
India: Quietly destroying the American economy ~ link ~ Signs of our economic decline are everywhere. From closed-down manufacturing plants to high unemployment numbers, it is no secret there is something very wrong going on in our country. One of the primary culprits behind our economic crisis? “Free trade.” It is our unfair “free trade” agreements with other countries such as India that have led to our current crisis. India’s predatory trading practices are resulting in the off-shoring and outsourcing of U.S. jobs through the use of visas, and the U.S. is facing an alarming decline in high-paying, professional jobs here at home.
For much of India’s history they were one of the richest countries in the world.

Other problems can be ameliorated, but not solved. Life is still tragic. Bad things will happen to good people. Sometimes we can wipe a disease off the map, but more often our solutions trade simple problems for more complex ones.
Many cases of food-borne illness here in the United States derive from imported food that is not being inspected carefully enough. With such a large chunk of the U.S. public falling ill from consuming food sold in supermarkets, it is outrageous that more effective measures have not been taken to halt the rate of food imports from foreign countries.
‘Jade Rabbit’ was traversing southwards from the landing site as the incident occurred just days ago – about six weeks into its planned 3 month moon roving expedition.
Mankind's Cradle of Civilization found in Java? ~ link ~ Of the approximately 200,000 years of the Human Race, we know very little of that before 10,000 years ago. The Ice Ages destroyed most evidence of human culture. The official line, that humans were simply primitive hunter-gathers for a couple of hundred thousand years, yet were the same as ourselves, is unlikely. Stirling
