Editorial:

The Money Masters/Global Elite have been secretly developing their power and influence over several centuries, but until recently, have been perfecting ways to hide or disguise their aim of bankers'/corporate world government. This made it easy for them to deflect any challenge by declaiming the accusation of 'conspiracy theorist!', and thereby denying credibility to the challenger.

Since the turn of the century, however, they have become more blatant. Never before has public trust in governments been lower, and with good reason. The lies and excuses for starting the Iraq wars were clearly false, despite the corporate public media's spin, and have been followed by a succession of further transparent excuses for illegal wars in support of Western corporate interests.

The latest atrocity is NATO's war on Libya. The propaganda launched in support of this action is grossly unjust; and perhaps the most significant facts are revealed in Ellen Brown's article, opposite.

We have a lot to thank the Internet for – including the Wikileaks disclosures of government secret documents – kept secret from their own citizens, to conceal their immorality!

The strong links between top bankers, corporate CEOs and government heads, with their interchangeable posts, have been increasingly opened up to public scrutiny – for those prepared to look – especially, but not only, in the USA. The welfare of the general public and the environment is neglected in the psychopathic pursuit of power, and fundamental to it is the debt-money system, with its built-in need for ever-increasing levels of debt and growth of the money supply, in order to avoid collapse; but it has now reached the end of its time. It cannot continue much longer without fundamental reform, but this will be resisted by the Money Masters as long as possible.

The best hope is for a rapid spread of the message of the money-reformers, to compel change, ending the banks' power of money-creation and reserving it to the State, with safeguards against abuse, as proposed by Positive Money in the UK or in the USA by Congressman Dennis Kucinich's coming re-introduction of the history-making monetary reform bill, HR 6550.

This is not to claim, of course, that this reform will by itself save the future; but as claimed long ago by the reform movement growing between the two World Wars, it is the key issue; unlock it, and the many other needed reforms become achievable.

*********************************

Woodrow Wilson signed the 1913 Federal Reserve Act. A few years later he wrote: "I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the civilized world no longer a Government by free opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men."
