Architects of Deception Part VII
The basis of masonic ideology is purported to be tolerance, open- mindedness, humanism and fraternity. These phrases have been trumpeted by the freemasons themselves. The official motto of freemasonry is: Lux ex tenebris (light from darkness). Freemasonry officially stands for humanist values, but in reality it represents the worst form of atheism and materialism.
The freemasons' greatest crime against humanity was to take away the former belief that we do not live only once and that we are completely responsible for our actions before the invisible worlds. It is therefore important for them to ridicule all knowledge of rein- carnation.
The freemason Joseph Fouche, who acted as convention com- missar, during "the great French revolution" in 1793 issued an order to place a sign on rue de la Cimetiere (Cemetery Street) in Paris. The sign read: "Death is eternal sleep."
Heinrich Heydrich and Dieter Schwarz wrote in the book "The World-View of Freemasonry" (Berlin, 1938) that the order represented a humanist philosophy, where "no differentiation is made between races, peoples, religions or social and political beliefs". According to the current propaganda, freemasonry creates better human beings. The facts suggest a different truth.
The freemasons have distanced themselves noticeably from Chris- tianity. Albert Mackey's "Lexicon of Freemasonry" states that "the religion of freemasons is not Christianity". It is actually occult demonism-Satanism.
The Grande Oriente d'ltalia rented Palazzio Borghese in Rome in 1893. Two years later, due to a dispute about the rent contract, the freemasons had to vacate parts of the palace. The representative of the owner, the Duke of Borghese, undertook an inspection. The newspaper Corriere Nazionale stated that one room was locked. The inspectors had to threaten to bring the police before they were allowed to enter the room. The whole room had been converted into a shrine to Satan. The walls were covered with red and black silk, a tapestry with a woven depiction of Lucifer hung on the far wall. Before the tapestry was an altar with triangles and other masonic symbols.
The Italian freemasons in Ancona published the periodical Lucifer in the 1880s, where they admitted time and again: "Our leader is Satan!"
When the Italian freemasons uncovered a monument to the Grand Master Giuseppe Mazzini on 22 June 1883, they carried black flags. The flagpole was decorated with a wooden effigy of Lucifer.
The famous Italian poet, Professor of literature and Deputy Grand Master of the freemasons (Felsinea, Bologna) Giosue Carducci (1835- 1907, received the Nobel Prize for literature in 1906) wrote "Hymn to Satan", which contains the lines:
"We greet you, Oh Satan! Oh rebellion! ("Salute, o Satana! O Ribellione!) Oh the victorious power of reason! (0, forza vindice della Ragione!)"
"La Rivista della Massoneria Italiana" (Vol. X, p. 265) from the
1880s stated: "My brothers, freemasons... Satan is great!"
Manly P. Hall, a 33rd degree freemason declared in his book "The Lost Keys of Freemasonry or the Secret of Hiram Abiff" that the freemasons always has access to "the bubbling energy of Lucifer".
Samuel Paul Rosen (1840-1907) was active as a rabbi in Poland for many years and at the same time managed to reach the 33rd degree within freemasonry. Finally he had enough and began serving man- kind instead. He left freemasonry and converted to Catholicism. In his book "Satan and Heaven" ("Satan et del", Casterman, 1888), Rosen revealed that there was an evil conspiracy based on Satanism within freemasonry. Rosen stated that the religion of freemasonry is the worship of death and that its goal is to degenerate society (p. 335). For this reason the freemasons have encouraged the founding of destructive political and pseudo-spiritual movements for the spiritually retarded and undiscerning. Two frightening examples of this masonic death-worship and sadism are the destruction of the Russian and Chinese cultures following their so-called revolutions.
The anarchist movement, founded by the freemasons for political idiots, uses the Grand Orient's Satanist red and black colours. When the infamous French anarchist, "revolutionary", feminist and free- mason Clemence Louise Michel (1833-1905) returned from her exile, she was saluted by 5000 anarchists who had gathered in Paris on 18 September 1880. The anarchists shouted: "Long live Satan!" The crowd nearly had a collective nervous breakdown (Verite de Quebec, J. Chicoyne's article about Michel, published in January 1905).
Michel had on the barricades been active in the Paris Commune, which called itself the dictatorship of the proletariat from 18 March to 28 May 1871. She led a revolutionary club. Michel was arrested countless times and was in 1872 deported to New Caledonia. After eight years Michel received amnesty in 1880. She toured throughout Europe promoting anarchism until her death. In 1881 she took part in the anarchist congress in London. After a demonstration against unemployment, she was sentenced to six years in prison, but then pardoned. From 1881 to 1895 she lived in London as head of a liber- tarian school. Then she returned to France.
The freemasons are struggling to achieve radical internationalism and anti-nationalism (Konrad Lehrich, "Der Tempel der Freimaurerei" / "The Masonic Temple", p. 7). They have spread the religion of hatred and intolerance. Their ideology is based on fairy tales and has nothing at all to do with reality.
Many lives were lost but Rothschild did not triumph this time. The renewed central bank contract was again suspended in 1836 during Andrew Jackson's presidency (1829-1837), despite the fact that he was grand master of Tennessee. The central bank was abolished.
Even so European bankers and their American agents managed to exercise an extensive control of the American monetary system. Gustavus Myers admits in his book "History of the Great American Fortunes" (New York, 1907, p. 556): "Under the surface, the Roth- schilds long had a powerful influence in dictating American financial laws. The law records show that they were powers in the old Bank of the United States."
In American history books there is nothing about the role of the banks in the Revolutionary War (1775-1783) and the War of Indepen- dence (1812-1814). Neither is there anything about the debt-free 'greenbacks' that Abraham Lincoln issued. Their existence is only verified by a few encyclopaedias.
To finance the American Civil War, which broke out on 12 April 1861, President Abraham Lincoln was forced to utilize the right of the Congress to coin its own money. Between the years 1862 and 1864, 450 million interest free 'greenbacks' were printed. Lincoln promised at his re-election in 1864 to begin fighting the banks as soon as the war was over.
Lord Goschen, the representative of the financial world, wrote in the London Times: "If this financial policy becomes permanent, the government can without expenses acquire necessary monetary provision. It can pay its debt and repay its loans without debt. It will have enough money to trade (on the open market). It is going to be healthier than any other (before) in history. If we do not overthrow this government, it will overthrow us."
The North during the Civil War was financed by the Rothschilds through their American agent August Belmont (actually Schonberg) and the South by the Erlanger brothers who were related to the Rothschild family. The Civil War ended on 9 April 1865, and the international freemasonry got busy to remove President Lincoln.
The assassination of Abraham Lincoln was carried out by the extre- mist Jew John Wilkes Booth (Botha), a freemason of the 33rd degree, on 14 April 1865 in Washington, D. C, only five days after the end of the Civil War. The Jewish silversmith John Booth's ancestors had been exiled from Portugal because of their radical political views. John's fader was Junius Brutus Booth (Stanley Kimmel, "The Mad Booths of Maryland", New York, 1970). Izola Forrester, Booth's grand- daughter, stated in her book, "This One Mad Act" (1937), that Booth belonged to the lodge Knights of the Golden Circle and also Mazzini's "revolutionary" movement Young America. Izola Forrester revealed in detail that the freemasons were involved in the assassination of the president. The subsequent murder of Lincoln's assassin was organized by Judah P. Benjamin, an important freemason and Rothschild agent (William Guy Carr, "Red Fog over America", 1968, p. 194). He was head of the Confederate secret service and later fled to England.
The masonic lodge Knights of the Golden Circle was mixed up in the plot. This name had begun to be seen in the press and so the masonic Sovereign Grand Commander Albert Pike in 1866 decided to rename it Kuklos Klan; 'kyklos' in Greek meaning 'circle' (John Daniel, "Scarlet and the Beast", Volym III, Tyler, Texas, p. 76). Knights of the Golden Circle appeared first in Cincinnati, Ohio, under the supervision of the Scottish Rite's Midwest organizer Killian van Resselaer. From there, the Knights spread throughout Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois, down the Mississippi south to the Gulf of Mexico, and into Maryland and Virginia. The Golden Circle was to be a slave empire centred in Cuba. The Knights armed and trained up to 100 000 men. They were organized into lodges called 'castles'.
It was officially founded as a new organization, the Ku Klux Klan, in 1865 in Pulaski, Tennessee, by General Nathan Bedford Forrest. Forrest formally disbanded the Klan in 1869, and the federal govern- ment crushed the residual chapters by 1871. In 1882 it was banned. The present racist group with the same name was founded in 1915 by William Joseph Simmons and Simon Wolf and thus has not grown out of the masonic organization that existed from 1866 to 1871.
After the demise of President Lincoln things were "normalized". The amount of money in circulation, which in 1866 amounted to 1907 million dollars or 50.46 dollars per capita, had by 1876 been reduced to 605 million or 14.60 dollars per person.
As a result there were 56 446 bankruptcies in ten years and a loss of two billion dollars. In 1887, the masonic bankers reduced the money amount further to 6.67 dollars per head. The Irish economist Margrit Kennedy stated in the book "Interest and Inflation Free Money" that the interest rate always goes up when there is a shortage of money. This in turn leads to bankruptcies and worsens the unemployment rate.
In American schoolbooks it is claimed that it was all for the good that the Democratic candidate for president in 1896, William Jen- nings Bryan, was not elected, because he was against the gold foo- ting and the "sound money" of the banks (that is money that creates debt). Bryan explained in his "Cross of Gold" speech at the Demo- cratic National Convention in Chicago on 9 July 1896: "When we have restored the money of the Constitution, all other necessary reforms will be possible, and until that is done there is no reform that can be accomplished."
Bryan was not elected and 17 years later, in 1913, Congress passed a bill (introduced by the masonic President Woodrow Wilson), that repealed the right of the Congress to issue currency and transferred this right to a "federal reserve" funding system.
Congressman Charles A. Lindbergh, father of the famous aviator, had the following to say about this: "When the president signs it, the invisible government of the money brokers has become legalized. The worst legal crime of the century is a fact. The day of reckoning is only a few years removed."
The one that played a crucial role in providing the United States with a central bank, was Paul Warburg. He was a German immigrant arriving in America together with his brother Felix. Both brothers, who were Illuminati and also member of B'nai B'rith, became partners of the banking house Kuhn, Loeb & Co., led by the illuminatus Jacob
Schiff, who also belonged to B'nai B'rith (Viktor Ostretsov, "Free- masonry, Culture, and Russian History", Moscow, 1999, p. 583). The Warburgs were supported by Nelson Aldrich (later to become grandfather to Nelson and David Rockefeller), known as the Senate handyman of John Pierpoint Morgan.
The family of (Samuel Moses) Del Branco in 1559 moved from Italy to Germany taking the name Warburg. In 1798, the family founded the bank of M. M. Warburg & Co.
The 1907 financial panic had been caused by the masonic banker J. P. Morgan, historian Fredrick Lewis Allen concluded in 1949. This was used as pretence to show that there was a need for a central banking system.
Frank Vanderlip, who worked for Rockefeller, admitted later in The Saturday Evening Post: "I do not feel it is any exaggeration to speak of our secret expedition to Jekyll Island as the occasion of the actual conception of what eventually became the Federal Reserve System."
Jekyll Island is a well-known resort on the Georgia coast.
During the Jekyll Island meeting at the end of 1910, Paul Warburg emphasized that the term 'central bank' should be avoided under all circumstances. It was decided to present the project as a Regional Reserve System.
It was made sure that Morgan's candidate, the freemason Thomas Woodrow Wilson was elected president. His campaign was financed by Jacob Schiff, Bernard Baruch, Henry Morgenthau, New York Times' publisher Adolph Ochs and other powerful Jewish financiers and free- masons.
The high-ranking freemason Edward Mandel House, President Woodrow Wilson's confidential adviser, by many historians considered the actual president of the United States during Wilson's administration, proposed in his novel "Philip Dru: Administrator - A Story of Tomorrow, 1920-1935" (New York, 1912), which was pub- lished anonymously, a transition to a graduated income tax and a central bank. These requirements were known from the Illuminati five-point program. "Colonel" House was in favour of forming a world government and adopting "socialism as dreamed by Karl Marx". To accomplish this he was willing to use political fraud. His hero Philip Dru seizes the government of the United States with the backing of a secret cartel of rich and powerful financiers.
The Federal Reserve bill was presented the night of 22 December 1913, when most of the members of the congressional committee were asleep. The same day the bill was hastily pushed through the House of Representatives and the Senate, President Wilson signed the Federal Reserve Act and control over money supply was transferred from Congress to private masonic bankers. Four times earlier the American people had managed to get rid of a central bank but not the fifth time.
The Federal Reserve Act was hailed as the victory of democracy over the money trusts, which was hardly the case. Paul Warburg immediately began working at Federal Reserve for a salary substan- tially less than that he received as a banker. Neither the president, members of Congress nor the secretary of treasure have any authority over the Federal Reserve.
The Federal Reserve System is actually a cartel of 13 large private banks, of which the Bank of New York is the most important.
President Woodrow Wilson allowed the national debt to grow from 1 billion dollars to 455 billion. Interest became the third largest post of the federal budget.
The United States borrowed up to four trillion dollars from various private banks in 1992. At the same time the deficit was 285 billion dollars. In 1991, another two million people were registered as poor in the United States. The national debt was slightly less than one trillion in 1980, in 1995 it was five trillion. The 32.9 million Americans lived in poverty in the year 2002).
The economist Milton Friedman is convinced that the economic collapse of 1929 took place because the Federal Reserve System refused to buy government bonds, which would have given the banks more cash, and thus it caused the monetary crash, which in turn led to the deep economic crisis.
In the 1810s, the freemasons had brought poverty to Europe in order to prepare for their socialist revolutions. Particularly bad was the situation on Guernsey, one of the Channel Islands. Slightly more than half the size of Jersey, it enjoys a mild and humid climate and fertile soil. People had no money to buy things, production stopped and workers went idle. There was no trade, and no hope of employment for he poor. Bankruptcy was near, since taxes to England and interest to the creditors could not be paid and no new loans were granted. The situation was desperate. People were beginning to leave the island and emigrate to Australia.
In 1815, Guernsey needed a covered market. There was no money. Then somebody proposed that the island should avail itself of its ancient prerogative and issue its own interest free money. At first the proposal was turned down, but as they urgently needed 5000 pounds and only had 1000 pounds in hand, the in one pound interest free the States of Guernsey notes. This was in addition to the supply of English pounds, which two main banks were circulating on the island already.
Work was begun on the market hall, everything being paid for with the new money. When the hall was finished, customers arrived and business was better than expected. By 1822 the market hall was paid for. The 4000 one-pound notes were destroyed. The first project with the new money was so successful that it was soon followed by others.
In Glasgow, by comparison the original fruit market in Candleriggs was built in 1817, and cost 60 000 pounds. This money was raised by an interest-bearing loan. Unlike Guernsey public market, repaid 6 years after it was built, the Glasgow market was not paid for until 1956 - 139 years later! Between 1910 and 1956 no less than 267 886 pounds was paid in interest alone (Olive and Jan Grubiak, "The Guernsey Experiment", Hawthorne, California, 1960, p. 14).
Next a new road was needed. There was gravel, stone and plenty of labour - but no money to pay for it. In all, the state issued 55 000 pounds worth of notes, which paid for the new projects. A new school was built, then several more. The whole surroundings of the market hall were renewed and many other public buildings were constructed, as well as widening of the streets. A new harbour was built along with the best new roads in Europe and new sewers. The sum was paid for with taxation and the notes were again destroyed. All these projects provided employment and economic stimulance.
In 1827, the Bailiff de Lisle Brock was able to speak of "the im- provements, which are the admiration of visitors and which contri- bute so much to the joy, the health, and well-being of the in- habitants". Things had certainly improved since 1815. It is significant that the great depression never troubled Guernsey. There was no unemployment, and the income tax was a flat ten per cent.
Things got even better. The import of expensive English flour was reduced. The money supply never exceeded 60 000 pounds. Un- employment was practically nonexistent. Guernsey became a prospe- rous island community. But the freemasons abhorred this paradise, for fear that the idea should spread to other parts of Europe. In that case they would no longer be able to construct their destructive projects. The freemasons dislike happy people.
In 1830, the banks launched a counter-attack and began to flood the island with their own notes. The bankers Finkelstein & Co of London were the first to open an office on the island. They started their propaganda for "better money", "real money". People believed this hogwash, which resulted in money shortage and loan appli- cations in the banks. The bailiff fought like a lion to save the island's sound economy and high standard of living - but to no avail. The intrigues and undermining work of the freemasons steered the island economy over to the banks and their exploitation.
The Guernsey experiment of 1816 to 1835 speaks for itself. We can do without masonic economy and do much better - but to try to do away with interest is considered the worst possible crime against humanity.
In 1837, 50 000 pounds had been put into circulation by the government for the primary purpose of local projects such as sea walls, roads, the new marketplace, a church and a college. These 50 000 pounds more than doubled the money supply, but there was no inflation.
In 1914, while the British restricted their own money supply, Guernsey issued more - another 140 000 pounds over the next four years. By 1958, over 500 000 pounds of interest free money was in circulation on Guernsey and still there was no inflation.
By 1990, there was a total of 6.5 million pounds in circulation issued interest free. There was no public debt as in the rest of Britain, which was still paying for its war debts. And yet on Guern- sey, prosperity was very much evident everywhere (Dr Jacques S. Jaikaran, "The Debt Virus: A Compelling Solution to the World's Debt Problems", 1992).
This was nothing new. In 1793, Liverpool suffered from extreme cash flow problems, and solved this by creating by an act of Parliament some 300 000 pounds of non-repayable money, which was used for public works with great benefit to the city and its people. This issue of money by the Liverpool Corporation alleviated the immediate debt crisis.
On 30 June 1934, the London magazine New Britain published a statement by the freemason and former Prime Minister David Lloyd George: "Great Britain is a slave under the international financial powers."
The masonic bankers during the last twenty-five years have lent money to the governments of the industrial nations, which find it harder and harder to repay their enormous debt. The private (read: masonic) sector has become exactly that much richer. This (masonic) monetary power has enough money to stop any intransigent poli- ticians. Popularly elected politicians no longer have any means of conducting the policies they wish. They cannot regain their power until the debts are paid. For every dollar borrowed, the politicians relinquish more power. The developing countries are in a much worse situation. They are not even able to pay interest on their loans.
During 1982-1990 the banks of the industrial nations received 1345 billion dollars in interest and annuity from these poor countries.
On 11 March 1932 at about 5 p.m., a man bought a pistol in Paris, claiming to be the well-known Swedish international financier Ivar Kreuger. At that time, however, Kreuger met his companion Oscar Rydbeck, so obviously someone else bought the gun. The news- papers stated that the Swedish match baron Ivar Kreuger had com- mitted suicide on 12 March, because his financial empire was near bankruptcy. Nothing of this was true, however. The examining doctor Erik Karlmark immediately concluded that Kreuger had been murde- red. A close relative, Eva Dyrssen, was present to verify this. No autopsy was performed (Lars-Jonas Angstrom, "Kreuger-mordet" / "The Kreuger Assassination", Stockholm, 2000, p. 55).
Ivar Kreuger had lent money at very low interest to save nations in trouble. In 1930 he lent 27 million dollars to Romania, an amount that today would equal 500 million dollars. The Kreuger group was helping fifteen governments and 400 million people in the same way (Gustaf Ericsson, "Kreuger kommer tillbaka" / "The Return of Kreu- ger", Stockholm, 1936, p. 63). All of Kreuger's assets were plundered.
The German-Argentine economist Silvio Gesell (1862-1930) wished to introduce "free money". Margrit Kennedy relates in her book "Interest and Inflation Free Money" (1988) how adherents to Gesell's theory of a free economy in the 1930s made several attempts with interest free money in various countries, including Germany, Switzerland, Spain and the United States. Particularly successful was the model used in the small town of Worgl in the Tirol in Austria. In 1932 the ideas described in Silvio Gesell's book "Die naturliche Wirtschaftsordnung" ("The Natural Economic Order", 1916) was introduced.
In August 1932, the town council of Worgl issued their own bank notes, called work certificates, to a value of 32 000 schillings. Backed by an equivalent amount of ordinary schillings in the bank, the town put 12 600 work certificates into circulation. The fee on the use of the money was 1 % per month or 12 % per year. This fee had to be paid by the person who had the banknote at the end of the month, in the form of a stamp worth 1% of the note glued to its back.
A ski-slope was built, streets were renewed as well as the canal system. They built bridges, improved roads and public services, and paid wages and building materials with this money, which was accepted by the butcher, the shoemaker, the baker, by everyone.
The small fee made everyone put this money into circulation before using the 'real' money. Within a year, 32 000 work certificates had been in circulation 463 times and thus had made possible the exchange of goods and services to a value of 14 816 000 schillings. In comparison to the sluggish national currency it circulated eight times as fast. Unemployment was reduced by 25 per cent within a year. When 130 communities in Austria began to be interested in adopting this model, the Austrian National Bank on 1 September 1933 prohi- bited the printing of any local currency.
Unemployment returned, prosperity disappeared and the situation was "normalized" - that is freemasonized.
Interest charges are always included in today's prices, which makes all goods and services very expensive and leaves very little money in the wallet. The economic historian John King has pointed out that because of interest, businesses must constantly raise their prices. This is camouflaged as inflation. He recommended abolishing interest as soon as possible, so as to avoid economic catastrophe. Everyone must now help to pay interest. It is included in all prices - about 77 per cent of rental rates, for instance. Taxes and other fees and imposts add up. Thus we have become slaves of the banks. All goods would be only half as expensive without interest payments.
According to the Swedish historian Herman Lindqvist, the free- masons decided in the 1810s that wages should be fixed at the poverty level. Such an attitude shows an enormous contempt for ordinary people. Between the years 1860 and 1910 more than a million Swedes left for America in due to several years of famine, poverty and difficulties in providing for themselves.
During the Middle Ages conditions were much better than the masonic myths claim. It has been calculated that a Saxony bricklayer in addition to free food, in today's currency made at least 13 300 euros a month. Craftsmen usually received various benefits in ad- dition to their wages. Despite the high wages, working hours were short, normally eight hours a day, and at that a five and a half day week. Mining journeymen in Saxony only worked six hours a day. Not until 1479 did they put in an extra hour. Often the journeymen enjoyed a free Monday, called blue Monday, usually without wage reduction. This was terminated in Sweden with the 1669 guild law ("Bonniers stora lexikon" / Bonnier's Encyclopaedia, Stockholm, 1985, p. 252). So as not to be confused with noblemen, craftsmen in Freiburg, in Saxony, were advised not to wear gold jewellery and velvet and satin clothes, even though they could well afford all this. The fact that the economy and cultural life flourished was due to the bracteate coins, which were the basis of a system with continuous withdrawal of coins, because they often broke. Withdrawal occurred thrice yearly and also served as taxation. Using old coins was not permitted. No one wanted to hang on to 'bad' money, so as not to make a loss, since by the exchange of twelve (old) coins one received only nine (new) ones. The economy prospered because the effect of interest-generating money was not present. There was to be no interest charged. For the frail, the old and the sick there were sick houses and the rich usually provided housing, clothing and free meals for the poor. Wealth was relatively evenly distributed at all levels of society (Margrit Kennedy, "Interest and Inflation Free Money").
All this disappeared when the masonic bankers took control of the economy. From then on, no one could afford a decent life. To enable us to stand this misery, the lie that things were much worse before is being propagated, which is certainly not true.
The current interest system makes it possible for those that al- ready have money to get even richer, while those in need find it increasingly hard to make ends meet. From 1968 to 1982 the national income of West Germany increased by 300 per cent, while the interest on the national debt increased by 1160 per cent. In 1982, the interest amounted to 29 billion DM. When interest is abolished, inflation vanishes. Margrit Kennedy stressed in her book that the income tax must also be abolished. The government will have to be satisfied with a very low VAT, otherwise the grey economy will grow. As of now interest rates go up, when there is not enough money available.
The European Community during the years 1982-1988 lost up to 735 000 jobs due to the debt crisis, while the United States lost 1.8 million jobs during the same period.
The Swedish national debt was 140 billion dollars in the fall of 1997, which makes Sweden more debt ridden than either Brazil or Argentina. Interest on the national debt was 11 billion dollars yearly, which is about 40 billion more than the cost of old-age benefits. Every Swede owed various banks 16 000 dollars in 1997. Half of the Swedish national income goes to pay interest. Twenty-five per cent of the export income went to support the national debt in 1990. The head of the central bank, Bengt Dennis, said: "In the circles where I move, it is expected that Sweden keeps a high interest rate."
In the beginning of the 1990s the bankers Salomon Brothers, that had provided the Swedish government with huge loans, demanded that the Swedish crown be devalued. The government complied.
Argentina paid some 200 billion to its creditors most of which went to cover usurious interest payment. Argentina went bankrupt in the spring of 2002, having a national debt of 132 billion dollars. Two Jewish banks (Banco de Patricios and Banco de Mayo) collapsed in 1998 due to the owners' criminal activities. This was a final blow to the national economy.
The Italian national debt in the summer of 2001 was astro- nomically 2 391 663 000 000 000 lire (145 831 500 000 dollars), roughly equivalent to 105 per cent of the GNP.
The Sultanate of Brunei in northern Borneo has free schools and free medical care. There is no tax and no VAT, but the standard of living is very high. Interest rates are very low. The country has enormous amounts of oil and gas, which is exported and has given large incomes. The Sultan Muda Hassanal Bolkiah is one the richest men in the world. Hiss assets are roughly estimated at 20 billion dollars.
Norway also has oil and gas, but the red politicians do not wish to abolish the income tax and other charges. Prices are horribly high, medical care means long lines.
On 1 May 1998, exactly 222 years after the founding of the order of the Illuminati (222 being a third of 666, which in turn is a third of 1998), the European Central Bank was established, actually a cartel of private banks. All of the people shall be in debt through taxation. The masonic bankers are thus trying to realize the Knights Templar ancient idea of creating a European super state by means of the banking system.
The Danish 'no' to the euro at a referendum in September 2000 and the Swedish 'no' in September 2003 showed, however, that not every- thing goes as planned. One does not have to be a prophet to see that the euro does not stabilize the economy, though one must not say it out aloud. Bernard Connolly, who was head of the department of cur- rency policy at the European Commission in Brussels, in 1996 published a book, "The Rotten Heart of Europe", claiming that fixed exchange rates and the monetary union (EMU) would lead to instabi- lity and growing unemployment. He felt the result would be horri- fying. Connolly was summarily fired.
At a visit to Sweden in August 2003, Connolly stressed that the introduction of the euro would lead to economic disaster and to the fall of the European democracies.
He claims that the euro is used as a pretext for forming an eco- nomic, political and military super state.
The problems have become worse in southern Europe. Portugal for instance is at the brink of a political breakdown and riots in the streets are not far away. This will then spread to the rest of Europe. He compared the situation to the economic collapse in Argentina, but the EMU countries are worse off. Argentina was able to cut its ties to the dollar, but the EMU countries cannot abandon the euro. Con- nolly's analysis is considered extremely pessimistic. His visit was reported in the large Swedish daily Expressen only on their website on 23 August 2003.
But what else can one expect from a currency symbolized by a stylised sign of Satan?
One meter was one meter in 1910 just as now. A litre is a litre, but a crown of 2004 is no longer worth the same as in 1910. Its value has sharply declined. Is that not strange?
Swedish and American official statistics state that in the early 1970s, roughly 75 per cent of the average working man's income went to necessities such as food, living, clothing, education, medical care, as compared to. Today it is barely enough for both parents to work to make ends meet.
In the 1970s the total value of the world trade of industrial goods was 50 per cent, the rest was in stocks and shares. The year 2001 the relation was 1 per cent goods and 99 per cent trading with securities. Speculation dominates.
The current monetary system encourages fraud and extension of the grey economy and has led to that those who constantly are in need of money lose more and more to those who have far more than they need. More and more money is collected in the hands of certain individuals, who happen to be masonic bankers. If interest is abo- lished, everyone benefits from the new system, not only the 80 per cent considered poor.
Alfred Herrhausen, member of the board of Deutsche Bank, has pointed out: "Those responsible for the current monetary system, know very well that it cannot last, but they do not know any alter- native or do not want to know of any."
To the Freemasons it is important to keep us in economic slavery, otherwise they would have done everything to abolish interest. Through taxes and duty the government collects most of the result of the economic activities of the people. What are then the Freemasons' beautiful phrases of humanism really worth? The masonic leaders' foremost goal has been to conceal as best as they can the current economic slavery. One must ask oneself if they have been successful.
