"We march towards slavery, accompanied by songs of fairness and change."
The call to audit the Fed makes this decades old Video essay as current as today's headlines!
First we shall take eastern Europe, then the masses of Asia. Then we shall take that last bastion of capitalism, the United States. We won’t have to attack. It will fall like an over-ripe fruit into our hands.” V. Lenin
“When we go to hang the last capitalists, they will compete to sell us the rope.”
As you will see from this ARTICLE they are way ahead of America in the U.K at accomplishing the destruction of the middle class, problem with this article is the viewpoint from which it is written you will note the Fabian Socialists (New World Order) are decrying the destruction claiming they will return to Victorian levels of poverty but they fail to mention all the Socialist policies of Tax and Spend the Fabian Socialists pushed in the U.K. they are in effect the perpetrators of their own demise. They are going into a Debt Spiral. right now and from the looks of things we could well follow. But after all that was the plan Mises knew it!
Socialism's Last Stand
The global warming movement is not about global warming. It is about the creation of an international political control arrangement by which bureaucrats who favor socialism can gain control over the international economy.
This strategy was stated boldly by economist Robert Heilbroner in 1990. Heilbroner, the multi-millionaire socialist and author of the best-selling history of economic thought, The Worldly Philosophers, wrote the manifesto for these bureaucrats. He did this in an article, "Reflections: After Communism," published by The New Yorker (Sept. 10, 1990).
In this article, he made an astounding admission. He said that Ludwig von Mises had been right in 1920 in his article, "Economic Calculation in the Socialist Commonwealth." Mises argued that without private ownership, central planners could not know what any resource is worth to consumers. With no capital market, the planners would be flying blind.
Heilbroner said that for 70 years, academic economists had either ignored this article or dismissed it without answering it. Then Heilbroner wrote these words: "Mises was right."
Heilbroner was one of these people. There is no reference to Mises in The Worldly Philosophers.
This admission was the preliminary section of Heilbroner's manifesto. He was cutting off all hope by socialists that there is a theoretically plausible response to Mises. The free market economy will always outproduce a socialist economy. Get used to it, he said.
Then, in the second section, he called on his socialist peers to get behind the ecology movement. Here, he said, is the best political means for promoting central planning, despite its inefficiency. In the name of ecology, he said, socialists can get a hearing from politicians and voters.
The article is not online. An abstract is. Here is the concluding thought of the abstract.
The direction in which things are headed is some version of capitalism, whatever its title. In Eastern Europe, the new system is referred to as Not Socialism. Socialism may not continue as an important force now that Communism is finished. But another way of looking at socialism is as the society that must emerge if humanity is to cope with the ecological burden that economic growth is placing on the environment. From this perspective, the long vista after Communism leads through capitalism into a still unexplored world that roust [must?] be safely attained and settled before it can be named.
Heilbroner did not care that a worldwide government-run economic planning system would not be called called socialism. He just wanted to see the system set up.
Look around you that is what is happening we are destroying America's middle class and will be subject to servitude of the Elites. What is the antidote? End the Fed, cut the taxes and return to the Constitution or face Poverty and Slavery!
