Financial crisis leads to prosperity?!


According to the  highly recommended article found here, “The credit crunch may actually be good for business…” The author, Douglas Rushkoff, makes a strong case to back up the surprising claim that  small businesses and individuals who invest their time and money wisely have nothing to fear from the demise of Wall Street or Federal Reserve Notes.  Below is a short excerpt:

“Once we accept the fact that the money and banks we have grown accustomed to using are not the only ways to generate capital, we liberate ourselves and our businesses from a finance industry that has enjoyed a monopoly over our commerce for much too long. They have not only abused our trust through corrupt self-dealing, but abused their privilege through systemic usury. Businesses are only obligated to support their employees, owners, and customers — not an entire finance industry.

The financial meltdown will help many businesses realize that their priorities have been artificially skewed towards making bankers and investors happy — and their own communities less so. As we start to finance locally or from our own non-local communities, our services will become more finely tuned towards them as well. We will get better at what we do, rather than obsessed with growth (to pay back lenders) or financing (to achieve that growth through acquisition)…”

Beyond offering valuable insight, Rushkoff points to real world examples in proving that what’s bad for the international bankers is in many ways good for the people and society.  There is no doubt that times are tough; but, like it or not, agitation often cleanses.  Or, as it has the saying goes, ‘the squeaky wheel gets the grease.’

The banksters, as they are commonly known, have displayed their squalid behavior for all to see.  They hopelessly try to prop up their failed and corrupt system by putting all of us further into debt, but the international community has grown wise to their games.  Additionally, despite a propaganda machine that puts China to shame, the American public has become notably more aware of the charade being played at their expense.  Among the gigabytes of disinformation, the truth is getting out:

The United States Isn’t a Country–It’s a Corporation!

“..In other words, our government was created by and for “sovereigns” — the free citizens who were deemed the highest authority. Only the People can be sovereign — remember that. Government cannot be sovereign. We can also look to the Declaration of Independence, where we read: “government is subject to the consent of the governed” — that’s supposed to be us, the sovereigns. Do you feel like a sovereign nowadays? I don’t.

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist or a constitutional historian to figure out that this is not what is happening in our country today. Government in these times is NOT subject to the consent of the governed. Rather, the governed are subject to the whim and greed of the corporation, which has stretched its tentacles beyond the ten-mile-square parcel of land known as the District of Columbia — encroaching into every state of the Republic. Mind you, the corporation has NO jurisdiction outside of the District of Columbia. THEY just want you to think it does…”

The full article is well worth reading, and brings to light information which to me seems vitally important, as it has completely changed the way that I view this nation and it’s government.

For a much different and thoroughly engrossing account of what’s been going on behind the scenes for the past several decades, check out John Perkins’ The Secret History of the American Empire. His story is vital to understanding how and why this world has been so thoroughly ravaged in the past. His efforts also provide a great role model for our children and set an important example for others to follow.
