“I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies.”
– Thomas Jefferson
In a previous piece, we detailed how only five corporations control nigh all the media and homogenize news at will, whenever it’s needed. Here, we are going to see how there exists a core of interlocking companies that control a nucleus of corporations whose tentacles reach far and wide.
Deferring to world-renown investigator, journalist and author, Jim Marrs, writer of outstanding books such as The Rise Of The Fourth Reich, Rule By Secrecy, Trillion-Conspiracy, and more, we find that:
“If the idea that a small group of international yet interconnected individuals controls the world of finance and commerce seems like a paranoid conspiracy theory, consider a 2011study by three scientists at the Swiss Federal Institute Of Technology in Zurich.
Combining mathematics used to model natural systems with comprehensive corporate data, they traced the ownership to the transnational corporations.
From a database of 37 million companies and investors, the Swiss team constructed a model of which companies controlled others through shareholding networks, coupled with each company’s operating revenues, to map the structure of economic power.
Shockingly, the study confirmed the worst fears of conspiracy theorists and the Occupy Wall Street protestors, as their analysis of the relationship among 43,000 transnational corporations identified a relatively small group of companies – primarily banks – with disproportionate power over the global economy.[Jim Marrs, Lost Secrets Of The Gods, pg. 225].
As New Scientist avers in an article discussing the study:
“The work, to be published in PLoS One, revealed a core of 1318 companies with interlocking ownerships (see image). Each of the 1318 had ties to two or more other companies, and on average they were connected to 20.
What’s more, although they represented 20 per cent of global operating revenues, the 1318 appeared to collectively own through their shares the majority of the world’s large blue chip and manufacturing firms – the “real” economy – representing a further 60 per cent of global revenues.”
As if that were not enough, the study also reveals:
“…a “super-entity” of 147 even more tightly knit companies – all of their ownership was held by other members of the super-entity – that controlled 40 per cent of the total wealth in the network.
“In effect, less than 1 per cent of the companies were able to control 40 per cent of the entire network,” says Glattfelder. Most were financial institutions. The top 20 included Barclays Bank, JPMorgan Chase & Co, and The Goldman Sachs Group.”[Bold Emphasis Added]
Such unprecedented economic power is something to take note of and beyond unprecedented. The fact that certain companies can control others through shareholder networks is something quite disturbing.
Furthermore, with certain interests such as David Rockefeller seeking the hyper-homogenization of the world, it’s easy to see that this is against the people’s best interests as seen in his own words. This notion was related by Rockefeller himself, in his Memoirs in 2003:
“Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure—one world, if you will. If that is the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.”
That clearly leaves no doubt of the global control that certain individuals such as David Rockefeller seek.
Comedian George Carlin intimated this dilemma saliently. For this we will cite him at length:
“The real owners are the big wealthy business interests that control things and make all the important decisions. Forget the politicians, they’re an irrelevancy. The politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice. You don’t. You have no choice. You have owners. They own you. They own everything. They own all the important land. They own and control the corporations. They’ve long since bought and paid for the Senate, the Congress, the statehouses, the city halls. They’ve got the judges in their back pockets. And they own all the big media companies, so that they control just about all of the news and information you hear. They’ve got you by the balls. They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying ¬ lobbying to get what they want. Well, we know what they want; they want more for themselves and less for everybody else.
“But I’ll tell you what they don’t want. They don’t want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. They don’t want well-informed, well-educated people capable of critical thinking. They’re not interested in that. That doesn’t help them. That’s against their interests. They don’t want people who are smart enough to sit around the kitchen table and figure out how badly they’re getting fucked by a system that threw them overboard 30 fucking years ago.
“You know what they want? Obedient workers ¬ people who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork but just dumb enough to passively accept all these increasingly shittier jobs with the lower pay, the longer hours, reduced benefits, the end of overtime and the vanishing pension that disappears the minute you go to collect it. And, now, they’re coming for your Social Security. They want your fucking retirement money. They want it back, so they can give it to their criminal friends on Wall Street. And you know something? They’ll get it. They’ll get it all, sooner or later, because they own this fucking place. It’s a big club, and you ain’t in it. “
Rockefeller, and the institutions that are seeking control of the world’s economy and finance [their very actions show this] aim to destroy individual sovereignty and national sovereignty. All at our expense, literally.
Lets hearken back to Rockefeller’s very own words:
” Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States… conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure—one world, if you will …If that is the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it”
Such is the obvious nature of their insidious game.
If one values freedom, we need to remove our consent.
Individuals must be responsive, but incisive.
Financial interests want your money? Let them earn it by doing things that matter instead of working against the interests of the people.
Vote with your dollars, where it counts.
We must stand our ground, for Big Money – as Rockefeller himself stated – is working against our interests.
True change begins within with each of us. By being proactive is the only way that we as individuals are going to circumvent this incoming tsunami of control.
Our world will not begin to change until we move towards more conscious aware actions in all modes of life while becoming relentlessly proactive towards that which aids us most.
The power of individuals en mass is profound, and is multiplied when our actions are well thought out and cohesive as we move towards more positive goals, towards a better world.
Now let our proactive actions begin, for the sooner we each ignite into an engine of change the sooner they will realize we will not take this lying down.
