“Everybody who has ever worked for a corporation knows that corporations conspire all the time.

Conspiracy is just another name for coalition.” – Robert Anton Wilson

Structures are nature’s way of balancing opposing forces.

Digital Currency: Money’s Future May Lie In Its Past

 

“The only difference between a bank director and a counterfeiter is that the counterfeiter has given evidence of superior skill and modesty. It requires more talent to sign another man’s name than one’s own and the counterfeiter at least does his work in the dark, while the suspenders of [gold and silver] payments are brazen in the face of day, and laugh at the victims and dupes, who have put faith in their promises.”

Meet the Architects Of Your Matrix

 

“There are invisible rulers who control the destinies of millions. It is not generally realized to what extent the words and actions of our most influential public men are dictated by shrewd persons operating behind the scenes.” Edward Bernays, Propaganda

Towards the end of the second Matrix film, Neo reaches The Source and meets the Architect. Here, he finally discovers the truth about the world he has been living in. In a pivotal exchange, these two fictional characters express a very real conflict through their opposing points of view. …

One Bank To Rule Them All

 

Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky, Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone, Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die, One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie. One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie. – J.R.R. Tolkien, Lord of the Rings

In the fantasy realm ofMiddle Earth, all races are unknowingly ruled by the influence of the One Ring, crafted to enslave them all. It’s an apt analogy for our current paradigm.

Come on! That’s just a story. These things don’t happen in real life.
