Sorry I couldn’t be of more help.

Robert asks…

Why is our government taking actions that destroy the economy and kill jobs?

I mean there have to be people who’ve got this figured out. Keynesian Economics is absolutely insipid and strictly for sheeple consumption. It’s a manipulating tool for government to gain more power by controlling the economy. It doesn’t help the economy, it helps concentrate resources and power in government. I mean it’s fairly obvious wealth isn’t from Government and money isn’t wealth itself but a trade tool representative of wealth. I don’t have any illusion that the brains government can bring together are really stupid, they are just not. Our Representatives may well be majority of morons economically, as most lawyers are on must subjects, but people with good minds can’t buy into the garbage they shovel, they just can’t.

Government can’t create real jobs, they can either kill the environment for job creation, or just leave it alone and let the economy roll. They are killing the economic environment, by choice in fact. It has to be by choice, the cause and effect is too clear.

Government can fake jobs, but a job that doesn’t produce wealth can’t help the economy and the taxation destroys it because a few different negative effects involved and the synergistic negative chain reaction is sets through the economy.

This ain’t no joke folks … keep trying to parasite through government and we gonna crash, and it will hurt the poor more than anyone. Government will be more powerful, but they only care about groups as long as they matter to their power. Crash the system, usurp the Constitution by creating panic and being the answer to desperation? And they take all the power, and they will take all the wealth leaving just enough for the live stock to survive.

That’s how I see this progression and the end game, assuming that those moving and shaking are really not stupid, and I know they are not. The minds behind the Federal Reserve and other Central Banks? They own Central Banks like our mess in every single country but 4 … well 3 now with Libya’s fall and rebels who’ve been talking to Rothschild Central Bankers since probably before the revolution. They are not stupid. Really evil, but not stupid.

Most of us are pretty stupid, and we are being manipulated into a plan that will put us into those evil monsters trap, and at their mercy.

I don’t see it turning around as almost all of buy into the situation either heavy (progressives) or light (republicans), I hope it can be turned, but I can’t see how. We keep on arguing about things that won’t matter, trying to control and beat each other when we can’t win divided.

admin answers:

Our Government consists mostly of Puppets and dupes. The Master runs the Fed, the Rothschild Cartel, and George Soros is their agent. The end game is well documented, their push for world domination through a One World Government they control.

It’s very simple, but it’s very Obfuscated and so very hard to understand. A family began with a goal, spread out in influence and manipulaiton since the mid 1700s. They had the World Domination goal from the start, and they used Banking. The Bower Family, who changed their name to “The Red Door” or Rothschild in German. They tried for One World Government control in the 1800s, and were thwarted by the Czar of Russia. They have been behind so many wars, and usually finance both sides, and crush economies and make huge profits usually many times what they put into it because they control money in entire countries, every single country in the world but 3 now.

How do you, US citizen feel this opinion?

This is an opinion by Yukio Hatoyama, new prime minister of Japan.

A New Path for Japan

Article Tools Sponsored By By YUKIO HATOYAMA Published: August 26, 2009

TOKYO — In the post-Cold War period, Japan has been continually buffeted by the winds of market fundamentalism in a U.S.-led movement that is more usually called globalization. In the fundamentalist pursuit of capitalism people are treated not as an end but as a means. Consequently, human dignity is lost.

How can we put an end to unrestrained market fundamentalism and financial capitalism, that are void of morals or moderation, in order to protect the finances and livelihoods of our citizens? That is the issue we are now facing.

In these times, we must return to the idea of fraternity — as in the French slogan “liberté, égalité, fraternité” — as a force for moderating the danger inherent within freedom.

Fraternity as I mean it can be described as a principle that aims to adjust to the excesses of the current globalized brand of capitalism and accommodate the local economic practices that have been fostered through our traditions.

The recent economic crisis resulted from a way of thinking based on the idea that American-style free-market economics represents a universal and ideal economic order, and that all countries should modify the traditions and regulations governing their economies in line with global (or rather American) standards.

In Japan, opinion was divided on how far the trend toward globalization should go. Some advocated the active embrace of globalism and leaving everything up to the dictates of the market. Others favored a more reticent approach, believing that efforts should be made to expand the social safety net and protect our traditional economic activities. Since the administration of Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi (2001-2006), the Liberal Democratic Party has stressed the former, while we in the Democratic Party of Japan have tended toward the latter position.

The economic order in any country is built up over long years and reflects the influence of traditions, habits and national lifestyles. But globalism has progressed without any regard for non-economic values, or for environmental issues or problems of resource restriction.

If we look back on the changes in Japanese society since the end of the Cold War, I believe it is no exaggeration to say that the global economy has damaged traditional economic activities and destroyed local communities.

In terms of market theory, people are simply personnel expenses. But in the real world people support the fabric of the local community and are the physical embodiment of its lifestyle, traditions and culture. An individual gains respect as a person by acquiring a job and a role within the local community and being able to maintain his family’s livelihood.

Under the principle of fraternity, we would not implement policies that leave areas relating to human lives and safety — such as agriculture, the environment and medicine — to the mercy of globalism.

Our responsibility as politicians is to refocus our attention on those non-economic values that have been thrown aside by the march of globalism. We must work on policies that regenerate the ties that bring people together, that take greater account of nature and the environment, that rebuild welfare and medical systems, that provide better education and child-rearing support, and that address wealth disparities.

Another national goal that emerges from the concept of fraternity is the creation of an East Asian community. Of course, the Japan-U.S. security pact will continue to be the cornerstone of Japanese diplomatic policy.

But at the same time, we must not forget our identity as a nation located in Asia. I believe that the East Asian region, which is showing increasing vitality, must be recognized as Japan’s basic sphere of being. So we must continue to build frameworks for stable economic cooperation and security across the region.

The financial crisis has suggested to many that the era of U.S. unilateralism may come to an end. It has also raised doubts about the permanence of the dollar as the key global currency.

I also feel that as a result of the failure of the Iraq war and the financial crisis, the era of U.S.-led globalism is coming to an end and that we are moving toward an era of multipolarity. But at present no one country is ready to replace the United States as the dominant country. Nor is there a currency ready to replace the dollar as the world’s key currency. Although the influence of the U.S. is declining, it will remain the world’s leading military and economic power for the next two to three decades.

Susan asks…

will someone read this and tell me if it sounds ok?

Worldview paper
A worldview, some people define it as a collection of beliefs about life and the universe held by an individual or group of people. I on the other hand would define it a little differently. I would define it as the way a person or group of people act and react in and to the world around them. I think that everyone believes and sees different things in the world we live in. Each person is influenced differently according to what they see and believe about the world around them.
Islam-Sociology
Similar to Christianity, Islam believes that society is made up of three parts: the family, the church (mosque), and the state. Even though Islam is similar to Christianity in many ways they are also very different in many ways. One of the main differences between the two worldviews is the way they think of marriage and the way they treat their women. Muslims believe that the men are above the women in every aspect of life, especially in the area of marriage. In the Muslim society they do not look down on divorce, though most believe that divorce may only be initiated by men (Understanding the Times). They also believe that men can have up to four wives and beat them if they are un-submissive. This area of Islamic society is totally opposite from Christianity in
that Christians respect their women. In Christianity divorce is very looked down upon as well as abuse and polygamy.
Secular Humanism-Law
Unlike Islam, Secular Humanism has no similarity to Christianity; in fact they are quite opposite. Secular Humanist legal theory is founded on two basic assumptions: First, God does not exist and second, human beings are perfectible, evolving animals (Understanding the Times). This totally contradicts what we as Christians believe; our whole belief system stands on God and his word. We also believe in creation rather than evolution, where as evolution is what Secular Humanists base their beliefs on. Secular Humanists also believe that we are to be put on the same level with animals, where as we believe that God placed us above animals, he created us first to be over them. I believe that we should stop treating animals like humans when we can’t even get along with and treat other humans with respect. I am not saying that we should miss treat animals but we can not keep putting them up on pedestals when we are treating our fellow humans like trash.
Postmodernism-Politics
Most people tend to agree that the majority of Postmodernists are on the left side when it comes to politics. For Postmodernists, politics is a tool of experimentation that involves: a radical critique of the existing systems of power in a society, the identification of oppressed groups (women, blacks, and the poor), and the remedy for being those identified groups out oppression to achieve a sense of social justice (Understanding the Times). So basically the goal of the Postmodernism politics is to have a sense of total social justice, or in other words making everyone equal. This way of thinking sounds good at first but once you really think about it and look deeper it is not so good. Unlike Christianity there understanding of social justice is that it is attained by treating everyone (the poor, immigrants, women, blacks, gays, etc.) equal and with fairness. Also as we can see unlike Christianity, Postmodernists accept homosexuality as a healthy way of living. We, being Christians highly disagree with this way of life; we believe that God has created man and women to be together, no exceptions!
Cosmic Humanism-Economics
Cosmic Humanists main theory of economics is based on self-government. They are extremely unlike Christians in that they believe if we have positive thoughts and listen to our inner self, letting it lead us, we will have wealth and we will never have a want for anything. Shakti Gawain says “The more you are willing to trust yourself, and take the risk to follow your inner guidance, the more money you will have. The universe will pay you to be yourself and do what you really love!” (Understanding the Times). This is one of the most nonsensical things I have ever heard, I do not understand how people, even people of intelligence, could truly believe that the world will pay them for what they love to do. I, as a Christian, believe that the Lord will bless us with what we need and what we deserve, sometimes he even blesses us with thing we do not deserve.
Marxism-Leninism-History
Historical materialism what the view that the Marxists have on history is called. The definition of the term is: The methodological approach to the study of society, economics, and history that looks for the causes of developments and changes in human societies through economic analysis (e.g., social classes, political structures, ideological, etc.) (Understand the Times). In other word history is just an account of matter because that is the only thing that exists, there is no God, or angles, or human soul. This is not at all what I
