My personal history of the 1% choosing to kill a million children each month


Monetary and credit reform is a policy objective to end transfer of trillions of the “99%’’’s wealth to an oligarchic “1%.” The US banking collusion only and always co-exists within a larger oligarchy with government for legal protection, and media for public propaganda. This paper presents histories in monetary reform and US government crimes in war suppressed by today’s US corporate media’s history texts and news journalism. When the oligarchy’s voice is professionally exposed as obviously and egregiously lying in omission and commission in claims of central importance of the past and present, government and corporate media loses credibility in an “emperor has no clothes” transformation. Refutation of the oligarchy’s voice with objective and independently verifiable facts, especially in light of current War Crimes and Constitutional destruction, supports our policy goal for monetary and credit reform because the public will seek alternative voices to build a brighter future. To support our goal of upgraded economic policies, we should be open to synergy with ecological and resource-based economic models, and network with Occupy.


Is there a leverage point for our/Occupy’s victory?

Yes: the arrest of the criminal 1% related to money/credit, government, and media. When the oligarchy is broken, we’ll have an opportunity to offer solutions through media with a chance to work in good faith for factual and comprehensive accuracy.

The easiest area to initiate arrests and end the criminal elements preventing monetary and credit reform is perhaps US War Crimes/Wars of Aggression. Because it is they who pay the greatest price for expanding and endless US criminal wars, it is probable that factions of the US military have plans for a military coup. In fact, I hope honest US military leadership arrests and removes the criminals. I really don’t like alternative scenarios I’ve read and can imagine of either the 99%’s defeat or a cornered criminal 1% acting in desperation.

Although I’ve been inviting the criminal 1% to have a “Scrooge conversion” and surrender [47] to a Truth and Reconciliation process for years, the end-game is perilous.

This point is a big deal; its time seems near.
