    Recent interventions by central banks to flush liquidity into panic-stricken financial markets have demonstrated again the wistful make-believe of the corporate "free market" fairy tale. It has no happy ending. Free markets exist no more than fairies do. On the other hand, big bad transnational wolves and carnivorous fee-fi-fo-fum financial giants abound and rig markets to catch as many victims as they can.

    Industries like financial services, pharmaceuticals, agri-business, oil and petrochemicals, mining, armaments production, media and communications are dominated by a handful of companies. Nothing is free about a market dominated by the few dozen corporations that together control such vast areas of the global economy. Likewise, the grotesque equation "free markets = democracy" touted so glibly by corporate-owned media and corporate-owned politicians amounts to a terminal corruption of language.

    An underlying connection exists between the fraudulent verbal currency used by corporate media to misrepresent the conflicts in Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine and elsewhere and worth-less-and-less monetary currency in the form of dollars and diverse credit derivatives paper blown around global financial markets by speculators. International markets have taken up the London Stock Exchange motto "My word is my bond" and turned it into "My word is my bond so long as some market-rigging bankers' cartel will somehow bail me out."

    It was Czar Alexander and Talleyrand who with much satisfaction agreed they could change the meaning of words from one 19th Century G-8 meeting to the next. In those days, they called it the Congress System. Then, European despots ran the system to enrich themselves and their loyal elites, to sacrifice masses of their people to savage industrialization and to effect their colonialist genocides around the globe. In North America, their US and Canadian understudies learned the lessons well. Now similar kinds of elites sacrifice their peoples to corporate globalization and work their neo-colonial barbarism using double duplicity to get what they want.

    Politically, they have exploited their peoples' fear of terrorism. Offering security, they have removed fundamental liberties and executed foreign policies violating the UN Charter and humanitarian and human rights law in a way bound to provoke terrorist retaliation. Economically, they have offered prosperity by deliberately fomenting an extended, unsustainable credit boom. Now they try to cover up the bust while still pursuing unsustainable policies that promote inequality at home and abroad. It is impossible to overstate the greed and cynicism of the global elites.

    CONTINUE...

    Caesar is begining to look alot like a bunch of unaccountable self serving elites. Wonder which of their North American minnions we'll "elect" this time?

    Ed, can you please say something worth saying? All this mind guarding stuff is rather boring, so is attempting to "debunk" this article by ignoring what it's saying. Let's see you refute it one point at a time instead of doing whatever it is you're trying to do. Hey that sounds like a challenge. Are you up to it or no? You can have a couple days to prepare I'm in no rush.;)

    BTW, what's with Christians trying to push drugs on people nowadays anyway? Is it just for folks that you disagree with or is it (in your opinion) for all those who disagree with Caesar in general that should submit themselves to mind altering drugs? Maybe forced drugging would be the way to go...no? Just curious.

    A calmative agent can be defined as an antipersonnel chemical that leaves the victim awake and mobile but without the will or ability to meet military objectives or carry out criminal activity. (Or disagree with Ed and Caesar)

    The New World Order (NWO) in your pocket

    Unseen humor aside, here is something more serious:

    -----------------------------------------------------------
    The New World Order (NWO) in your pocket

    Look at the back (green side) of your US$1 bill.

    Look at that left picture of the pyramid.
    Check out the logo below the pyramid:

    NOVUS ORDO SECLORUM

    That is written in Latin.

    'SECLORUM' is the Latin word from which we get
    the English world 'secular'. 'Secular' started out as
    a word that meant 'worldly' as opposed to
    the clergy which was supposed to be 'heavenly' ;)

    'ORDO' the the Latin word from which we
    get 'order': a ranking, or organization, or set.

    'NOVUS' is a Latin word from which we get 'new'.
    (it really is, look it up)

    Roughly then we find:

    NOVUS ORDO SECLORUM
    =
    New World Order

    (Wikipedia says at:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Novus_Ordo_Seclorum

    What's in your wallet?

    Um, you think the very real threat to this country is funny? And you don't want to try to "debunk" the article point for point?

    I think you got your head where you need a belly window.

    I was being nice to you AND your paranoia made
    you misunderstand what I said.

    I said: // Poncho, would you please go to the One World Drug Distribulation
    Point and get reprogramed*? Thank you. :eek://

    * misspelled, should be reprogrammed
    But even the mispelling was a funny: re-program-Ed ;)

    That is an eek symbol - a smilie - an indicator I was
    speaking TONGUE & CHEEK. I was on your side.
    I note nobody came to argue with you -- they could see what
    I was doing.

    BTW & seriously -- paranoia can be cured with pills &
    counseling.

    BTW & still seriously -- paranoia = illogical & irrational fear.
    If they really are out to get you (and per your OP they are,
    and I even agree they are -- I've been fighting them for
    years FROM INSIDE the establishment) --
    if they are out to get you, then it isn't paranoia, the mental
    disease.

    BTW & seriously -- one of the first signs of a mental disease
    is a LOSS OF HUMOR. Can somebody tell this lost (socially
    disoriented) soul that what I was was HUMOR???

    BTW & still seriously -- different types of 'lost'

    1. spatially lost (don't know where you are in space)
    2. temporally lost (don't know where you are in time)
    3. eternally lost* (don't know where you are in eternity)
    4. grammatically lost (don't know which word to use)
    5. socially lost (socially disoriented)
    6. politically lost (don't know which party to join)
    12. mathematically lost (don't see this is a joke ;) )

    * I am prohibited by the rules
    on this board from specifying or suggesting
    that a person might be this kind of lost: 'eternally lost'.
    However, I can suggest other types of lostness.

    Ed, you've picked the absolute longest and most boring route to go in avoiding discussing the article I posted. If you aren't interested in taking up my challenge then just say so...I won't think of you as a coward for just admitting it. Promise.

    Looks like the "New World Order" is a couple hundred years old, huh?

    I guess one would have to say the establishment of an independent United States was actually the beginning of a New World Order.

    It could easily be argued that end of World War II began another and it could reasonably be argued the collapse of the Soviet Union began another.

    There have probably been others in the last 230 years or so.

    Hmmmm....:cool:
