“Gentlemen, … You tell me that if I take the deposits from the bank and annul its charter, I shall ruin ten thousand families. That may be true, gentlemen, but that is your sin! Should I let you go on, you will ruin fifty thousand families, and that would be my sin! You are a den of vipers and thieves.” - Andrew Jackson
The argument about capitalism and socialism is a deception. It’s the Free Market that is under attack.
Capitalism is the investment of wealth to increase production and profits of an industry, in order to obtain a return on that investment. The capitalist does not actually work to earn his profit.
If you think the mechanisms of socialism are any different, you might take another look. The only difference between these two systems is who is investing and obtaining a portion of the profit produced by the Free Market System.
In a free society, any individual may gain the benefits of self-determined participation and production. But in socialism the individual is a fixed cog in a slavish machine; and only the slave master benefits.
In a society based on individual freedoms, the basic economic system is known as the Free Market System. Such a society can generate an abundance of wealth for those who participate and results in creativity through incentive, research and discovery.
Such groups as Ford Motor Company, Apple and Google are stellar examples of the free market at work. The success of these companies is, in no small part, due to the private investor, or contributing capitalist.
But, socialism looks much different from capitalism. How can they be the same system?
Instead of an exchange of products between people, Socialism is an exchange system between the individual and government. A communist government “owns” all sources of production and distribution in the name of “the People.” Individuals own nothing. Job assignment is controlled by the government (“From each according to his ability…”) and government provides what is needed to live. (“…to each according to his need.”) Under socialistic government, exchange between individuals (free market) is illegal and criminally charged as participating in the Black Market. Hence, the blood-flow of a free society is considered criminal under socialism because it is free from the control of the government.
Hidden behind the promises of personal security and equality by the socialist system is enslavement. One is compelled by a covert force (the secret police) to participate. Any failure to “willingly” participate results in imprisonment in Siberian style work camps where overt force is used to compel participation. The definition of a slave according to the Webster Dictionary is:
One who is under the power of a master, and who belongs to him; so that the master may sell and dispose of his person, of his industry, and of his labor, without his being able to do anything, have anything, or acquire anything, but what must belong to his master.
But a government always has a master; be it “the people” a dictator or some small privileged group such as the International Banker.
In socialism, who is the backing capitalist? In other words, who has invested and now desires to obtain a return on the profits of the socialist society?
If you invest in one company, you receive a return from that one company. Invest in 20 companies and you receive returns from those twenty businesses. Investment is only limited by the wealth one can safely invest.
What if you were able to “invest” in the production of an entire country? Then you could obtain a portion (if not all) of each man’s profit through taxes collected by the government.
However, it would take untold funds to control a government. How could such a scenario exist? Here’s one scenario:
- Obtain the power to “Create” and issue all currency of that nation. (Normally the responsibility of the government)
- Charge interest on all money created and “loaned” to that government.
- Set up a formidable system to collect on the debt.
The Central Bank of England was established by a private group of bankers in 1694 and accomplished this plan over England. After the American Revolution, (which was a lost investment to the Central Bank of England) the same group who controlled the Bank of England yearned to set up a U.S. Central Bank. Through unrelenting endeavor, control over the US monetary system was eventually achieved in 1913, thus the international bankers achieved step 1, 2 and 3 above, in the guise of the Federal Reserve and the creation of the IRS. Washington, Jackson, and other presidents who understood this detriment to freedom were no longer there to hold them off. The International Bankers finally gained control of the nation’s currency.
Over the past 100 years the private banker via the Federal Reserve has “invested” with the intention of changing “government of, for and by the people” into government which provides for and rules over the people.
As a government becomes larger to meet its new purpose (more control over the population), its “debt” to the “investor” (the Federal Reserve) also increases. The rising debt and cost of government is paid for by the production of the producing populous, whose profits are taken away in the form of higher taxes.
The imminent, if unchecked, outcome of these parasitic “investments” is the conversion of the free market and private capitalist system into a slavish socialist system where the International Banker controls the nation’s populace through corrupt and oppressive government while reaping the wealth from the slave State. (Perhaps now it makes more sense when you hear a “capitalists” clamor for increased taxes? He has invested in your government and profits by taking more and more of your hard earned dollars.)
Whenever you see the Federal Reserve resisting any control by our elected government officials, recognize there is only one clear path to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness as envisioned in our Constitution, and it has no place upon that path for the International Banker or its Federal Reserve.
