History repeats itself because TRUE history is hidden from the masses. The collusion against knowledge knows no bound. This is the story about how the wealth of a few was made, through ruthless and deceptive practices, which today are STILL alive and well. It’s the only way to achieve power however, and the very few admired for the immense wealth rule everything behind the curtain.
Why so much fascination about power and money?
Because most people have no clue about the crimes it takes to become wealthy at all. See the blog: “Corporations Generate Insane Profits From The Most Destructive Ingredient On The Market” , and you will get a sense about the psychopathy governing the world. Nothing has changed over the centuries because that’s what collusion makes inherently people do.
The top 1% and their close pals, say 10% more or less, have no remorse and no empathy. Accumulation of wealth leads to cognitive dysfunctions. And not so strangely, market fundamentalism – profit at all cost – promoting such mindset is pervasive and destroying the fabric of society. So not only most people truly believe that it is the way life just is while dooming their efforts – or/and those of their descendants.
Should you wish to buy a treat for yourself well, yes money is especially good to free society from it, then please consider buying the 2 dollar version in PDF format and pass it around. History is hidden from us because it definitely makes the case for a money-free society!
The Lords of Creation: The History of America’s 1 Percent (Forbidden Bookshelf)
Frederick Lewis Allen
Biography… Frederick Lewis Allen (1890–1954) was born in Boston, studied at Groton, and graduated from Harvard in 1912. He was assistant and associate editor of Harper’s Magazine for eighteen years, then the magazine’s sixth editor in chief for twelve years until his death. In addition to The Lords of Creation, Allen was well known for Only Yesterday, Since Yesterday, and The Big Change.
THIS book is an attempt to tell the story of the immense financial and corporate expansion which took place in the United States between the depression of the eighteen-nineties and the crisis of the nineteen-thirties; to show how profoundly it altered the circumstances and quality of American life, why and how it ended in collapse, and what the collapse meant to all of us. One reason why I decided to make this attempt was that the theme seemed to me to be vitally important. One need not accept in toto the economic theory of history to recognize that in our recent American history the economic thread has become a rope to which almost everything else in our lives appears to be attached. I do not believe that anybody can understand how the United States reached its present predicament without some sort of understanding of the economic processes, and particularly the almost revolutionary financial processes, which were at work during the great age of financial expansion. In a very real sense, this story is the story of forces which dictated the terms of American life yesterday and today. The theme is important also because of the pervasive social influence—in the broadest sense—of the financial and industrial leaders; for they largely constituted our American upper class, and their standards and ideas tended to permeate the whole population. … MORE/EBOOK PDF https://thelordsofcreation.com/index.html
Abby Martin speaks with NYU media studies professor, Mark Crispin Miller, about five historical books that have been actively suppressed and hidden from the American public.
AN AMAZON.COM COSTUMER’S REVIEW: An easy-to-read, yet comprehensive, overview of the vast expansion of corporations and finance in the US between the 1890’s and the 1930’s. There are fascinating vignettes of selected “captains of industry and finance”, many of whom were born into poverty but had the skill and the drive to learn the financial tricks and became billionaires. Financial malpractice was egregious and rampant and lead directly and repeatedly to economic crises. Lessons learned, if any, were soon forgotten or ignored. Today, in 2014, one can see the same self-serving financial greed in action. Excessive speculation in dubious financial instruments follows a pattern similar to the excesses of the 1920’s
