"The only reason this problem has not received the attention it deserves is because the scale of it is so enormous that ordinary people simply cannot see it. It's not just stealing by reaching a hand into your pocket and taking out money, but stealing in which banks can hit a few keystrokes and magically make whatever's in your pocket worth less. This is corruption at the molecular level of the economy, Space Age stealing – and it's only just coming into view."

"Conspiracy theorists of the world, believers in the hidden hands of the Rothschilds and the Masons and the Illuminati, we skeptics owe you an apology. You were right. The players may be a little different, but your basic premise is correct: The world is a rigged game. We found this out in recent months, when a series of related corruption stories spilled out of the financial sector, suggesting the world's largest banks may be fixing the prices of, well, just about everything."

And people will continue to act as if the West is in a 'democracy'. There is no such thing. 

This world is a lie.

I don't know if im educated enough about banking in saying this, but am I wrong to think banking is simply organized crime? Untouchable like never before.

the average citizen stays losing. even if a bank is going under the federal reserve can just lend money and make more money by buying and selling government bonds. nothing is really stopping them from printing more money and the fact that they get away with this is because no one really knows about it.

This is the beginning of the end of their power on Earth. We are rising.Journalists are fighting back within the networks now. This is from this very informative article http://divinecosmos.com/start-here/davids-blog/1125-disclosure-storm

"One very significant new development is the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, or ICIJ.
 
This is a combined group of 38 different media companies -- involving 86 journalists from 46 different countries -- all working together for the first time.
 
This includes top media networks in the UK, the US, France, Germany and Canada. It is very telling that their own networks haven't reported much about their work yet -- if anything.
 
Nonetheless, the alliance is very real -- and there is a ton of material to read on their website, www.icij.org.
 
They have hacked into over 2.5 million secret files -- and are systematically identifying each and every secret haven where the Cabal has been hiding the money it is stealing from the people.
 
This includes shadowy "off-ledger" accounts that were based on stealing from the Global Collateral Accounts, as we have reported in Financial Tyranny.
 
 
2.5 MILLION LEAKED FILES TARGETING POLITICIANS AND MEGA-RICH WORLDWIDE
 
This excerpt from April 3, 2013 reveals the nature of this new, worldwide alliance of journalists -- and the 2.5 million documents they uncovered to help solve our problems.
 
Secret Files Expose Global Impact of Offshore Accounts
http://www.icij.org/offshore/secret-files-expose-offshores-global-impact
 
A cache of 2.5 million files has cracked open the secrets of more than 120,000 offshore companies and trusts, exposing hidden dealings of politicians, con men and the mega-rich the world over.
 
The secret records obtained by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists lay bare the names behind covert companies and private trusts in the British Virgin Islands, the Cook Islands and other offshore hideaways....
 
The leaked files provide facts and figures — cash transfers, incorporation dates, links between companies and individuals â€” that illustrate how offshore financial secrecy has spread aggressively around the globe, allowing the wealthy and the well-connected to dodge taxes and fueling corruption and economic woes in rich and poor nations alike.
 
The records detail the offshore holdings of people and companies in more than 170 countries and territories.
 
 
THE BIGGEST STOCKPILE OF INSIDE INFORMATION EVER OBTAINED
 
As the article continues, we find that this is the biggest, most elaborate exposure of inside info in the history of the media -- 160 times bigger than Wikileaks.
 
http://www.icij.org/offshore/secret-files-expose-offshores-global-impact

 
The hoard of documents represents the biggest stockpile of inside information about the offshore system ever obtained by a media organization.
 
The total size of the files, measured in gigabytes, is more than 160 times larger than the leak of U.S. State Department documents by Wikileaks in 2010.
 
To analyze the documents, ICIJ collaborated with reporters from The Guardian and the BBC in the U.K., Le Monde in France, Süddeutsche Zeitung and Norddeutscher Rundfunk in Germany, The Washington Post, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) and 31 other media partners around the world.
 
Eighty-six journalists from 46 countries used high-tech data crunching and shoe-leather reporting to sift through emails, account ledgers and other files covering nearly 30 years.
 
“I’ve never seen anything like this. This secret world has finally been revealed,” said Arthur Cockfield, a law professor and tax expert at Queen’s University in Canada, who reviewed some of the documents during an interview with the CBC.
 
He said the documents remind him of the scene in the movie classic The Wizard of Oz in which â€œthey pull back the curtain and you see the wizard operating this secret machine.”"

Pretty much. Same goes for gasoline since the prices are up and we pretty much picked up the corporate tab to have  it pumped, handled, and shipped over here.

Of course they are. Most of you faggots don't even understand basic economics, so step off this illuminati shit. Do you seriously think banks/firms/etc. are looking out for the common man? Its their job to make as much money as possible. Cable companies probably collude. Its a small scale, but its the same fucking principle. Wheres the uproar?

If you don't trust the bank, just pile cash in your mattress. Not like a savings account keeps up with inflation either.

This is incorrect, it is a very broad network of many interconnected industries. They have more wealth than you could imagine; just read this statistic

In a infinite universe,


You may think you're insignificant, but you aren't. Your problems are. You are infinite potential.

Basic economics also tells you that you can't just hide your money in a mattress to save them from the banks. The banks are so huge and control so much money (especially if an international price setting conspiracy was true) that they also control the value of the money you put in your mattress.

I act. wrote a research paper about why people no longer care about their political freedom.
it's ever since the 1940s and up (esp. the golden age) that made people cherish economic freedom rather than
political freedom. It's crazy how distracted people get from new technology and innovation.

theres more to it but yea. i'd say blame the golden age.
