It is only when a critical mass understands the “ball game” that the paradigm shift will set itself fully into motion.
Maybe did you watch Peter Joseph’s video in the previous blog, or were you too busy and postponed the screening. We posted it after scanning through briefly anyway because we trust Peter Joseph’s brilliant investigations.
To make sure that the message is spreading, Earth Custodians felt like it was necessary to insist on such very important data.
Where to start? Well, with the “ownership and private property laws” which is a very subtle and cruel premise invented so that the few could steal from the masses for the sake of power. This is perhaps where one of the most important rabbit holes ends. It is an extremely important one. This is about raw power in all its pure machiavellian state.
Those who discovered the concept of money — and became as quickly interested in accumulating wealth — thousands of years ago came up with the “property laws” and proclaimed that Freedom was up for sale. And that anybody working hard enough could achieved a certain degree of Freedom. That is how the social classes became reality.
But very quickly collusion arising from this newly developed concept of ownership showed its true colors: a scheme ruining the masses when “they” would see fit. More realistically, the collusion has only become more organized 500 years ago when feudalism crashed down. The same elites would not let it go that easily, as you might guess. It is only over the last 200 years or so that the same collusion has become strategically murderous as it has increasingly gone global.
To enforce any regulations, coercion is required. So when people hold onto their possessions, they allow themselves to be more prone to manipulation as they are more afraid to lose what they have.
And that is why money was created in the first place. As a tool to enforce property laws as a mean of control by a few colluding to strip the naive populations from their properties. In this sense, the government is an entity enforcing private property laws but in favor of its upper class.
How many have a mortgage underwater now in America as the housing bubble is back to its pre-level crisis in 2008? We’ll have to wait and see when it pops but the number will be staggering!
George Carlin tells it like it is: the game is utterly rigged, and can only end if we get rid of the property laws because the latter legitimize systematically the existence of monopolies and greed. Until it is not done we are fighting windmills.

Lecture: “Improbable Democracy”, Peter Joseph 9/8/17 @ 38mins, see video below: Veblen wrote extensively and insightfully of the relation between capitalism government and the class struggle. For Veblen, the ultimate power in capitalist system is in the hands of the owners because they control the government the government is the institution legitimizing means of physical coercion in any society. As such it exists to protect the existing social order and class structure. This means that the primary duty of a government is to enforce private property laws and protect the Privileges associated with ownership
Veblen repeatedly insisted that modern politics is business politics the first principle of a capitalist government is that the Natural Freedom of the individual must not Traverse the perspective right of property property rights have the indefeasibility which attached to natural right the principal freedom of capitalism is the freedom to buy and sell… For Veblen insisted that modern politics is business politics
Wake Up Call (924,184 views)
Have you ever felt like we’re living through a nightmare of consumption? That you wish you could un-hook yourself and reconnect with a life that is somehow more real and vivid? Then perhaps you’re ready to heed Earth’s Wake Up Call. Today we live in a time when there is little to no understanding of how the goods we consume and take for granted came into being. Without this we lack the knowledge to understand the true costs of our consumption, and the power to take action. As a result we have become disconnected from Earth – the origin of our health, wealth and all of the ‘things’ we depend on.
Wake Up Call takes us on a fast-paced, animated glimpse of the true costs behind some of our most prized possessions – our electronic gadgets. Joining the dots between the stages of extraction, production, consumption and disposal, it reveals that, although our gadgets appear sleek and shiny, their appearance is misleading.
Excerpt from Business as a System of Power
Men have always experienced difficulty in perceiving the thrust of deeper tendencies beneath the surface phenomena of their day. Particularly when long-established institutional systems have been breaking up under them have they tended to mistake symptom for cause and to greet predictions of major change with incredulity and aversion. In the main, they wrestle with obvious immediacies in familiar terms; for the rest, the deeper tendencies, they prefer to wait and see. If such a policy has seemed to be not without some justification in more leisurely eras of change, it is today nothing less than disastrous. For we are living through one of the great climactic eras of history, a major faulting of the institutional crust. A symptom of the extent of current change is the extreme ideological confusion. Fascist monopoly capitalism adopts “National Socialism”; organized industry opposes organized labor in the name of “democracy”; and ideological opposites fight side by side for goals that sound alike only because they are left vague. In such a time, when men and their most cherished concerns are being dragged headlong at the heels of confused events, the one chance for constructive recovery of control lies in the diagnosis of underlying causes.
In this book Dr. Brady cuts through to the central problem disrupting our world, the most dangerous issue democracy faces. This problem is not basically created by Adolf Hitler and the Axis nations, but by the organized economic power backing the Hitlers in nation after nation over the industrial world as a device for shoring up for yet a while longer a disintegrating economic system.

QUOTE FROM BOOK: “The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country.”–Edward Bernays, Propaganda
