Who benefits when the most basic foundations for creating prosperity are denied to the majority of citizens? Why The World Economic Forum's Plutocracy Should Be Dissolved.

Excerpt:
""The welfare of the people," Albert Camus succinctly noted, "...has always been the alibi of tyrants." The great mass murderers of the twentieth century attest to this truth. Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, Pol Pot and Mao killed tens of millions, but they did so, they assured the world, not for their own glory but for the benefit of "the people." Castro and Guevara executed tens of thousands of political prisoners while absurdly claiming they did so in the name of "freedom."
...

Of all Lord Acton's persuasive defenses of individual liberty as the highest end of human civilization, one observation remains most memorable: "Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely." As well-known as these words are, the universality of their meaning is often ignored. It is not just kings, generals, and popes who possess great power. Wherever a person, group, or institution is capable — through enticement, coercion, or brute force — of bending an individual's free will, the structures and instruments of power exist. A local school board, after all, may well have more immediate and intimate influences over a person's family than the United Nations Human Rights Council and its revolving door of despots who tend to promulgate international resolutions shielding their own crimes. A wealthy landowner who exerts hefty influence over agricultural or cattle markets influences the pocketbook fortunes of more modest farmers, too. The small number of multinational corporations that control most television and print news sources around the globe also control the sociological levers capable of manufacturing or shifting public opinion. Power in any form — political, economic, cultural, spiritual — is an abiding challenge to human liberty, and in this way, must always be guarded against as a potential foe.

It is also true that those with power have little incentive to check what they possess and have every incentive to grow and strengthen the powers already in their grasp."

    In order for the World Economic Forum to achieve its vision and for this invisible enemy to manifest Klaus Schwab’s prediction of a “Fourth Industrial Revolution”(4th Reich) nation states would need to be destroyed; bowing in submission to a supra-national entity. This supra-national body would be a conglomerate of entities such as the World Health Organization, World Trade Organization, United Nations, International Monetary Fund, World Bank, Bank of International Settlements, and a matrix of globalist corporations all working in lockstep and coordinated by the World Economic Forum.

    So many of my friends and family question why I get angry and change the channel or turn the darn thing off, when abhorrent degenerate behavior is normalized on TV. I try to explain and they invariably agree that what I am objecting too is wrong but they see no reason to object themselves. There is a kids show that I refused to allow my grandchildren to watch but my son and daughter-in-law saw no problem with, until I pointed out the transvestite male front and center on the screen being treated as normal by the cast of the show. Then my kids agreed and banned the show from my grandchildren. One must be ever vigilant to protect their family from the inevitable slide of morals.

    Well that's my rant for the day.

      Well thank you but you did not see all that I typed and deleted before posting.
      I find it infuriating that modern media, has decided to normalize so many aberrant behaviors with the obvious intent of moving society towards embracing them; yet the masses cannot see what is going on. It used to be that the media was on the front line to help uphold the morals of the day. That the media would hold those who violated the accepted morals standards accountable and help to bring about social change for the good of society.
      Now however the media has taken exactly the opposite position in that they now do everything in their power to destroy the very fabric of society and the thing that drives me up the wall is that so many just can not see what is being forced upon us.

      True Dat.

      Very smart of you. We "normalize" anything we see on a consistent basis. if we grow up around drugs/violence, we normalize them.

      The process uses Mirror Neurons. It's why they always show stars/idols eating/drinking certain food. Because deep down, if you like that person, you want to do what you can that makes you MORE LIKE THEM... And that transfers. It's why they pay them so much to advertise.

      To our brains, we MUST learn how to behave, and how to react, by witnessing it. Over and over. So, introduce a bad behavior, and reward it, and even those people who DO NOT participate, but see it often enough, will assume it is normal.

      We are being Hijacked. There is a book about the Hijacking of the American Mind...

      Notice that it NEVER seems to be used to teach people meditation, love, gratitude, etc...

    Personally I lean towards public hanging or beheading of these plutocrats.
    Except for Schwab and Soros, who need wooden stakes through their hearts.
    Put the whole thing on pay per view, and the national debt would evaporate overnight.

    In connection to the article's focus on establishing power for politically entrenched families that often wind up controlling today's nations, and although happy NOT to be a British subject, I'm galled at the kowtowing in evidence at the current royal funeral.

    When Britain's royal family wealth is placed at $34B (much of it trust and can't be sold) and Britain's inheritance tax on property and liquid wealth valued over $377,000 is supposed to be 40% (and would be for nearly all non-royal citizens), royals don't pay it unless they specifically insist on paying.

    There's a pretty good YahooFinance article that shows how King Charles will get hundreds of millions from the dead queen but won't pay a dime in inheritance tax.

    https://finance.yahoo.com/news/crown-...

    I don't have a problem with personal wealth, just misinforming who the real "robber barons" are--and watching the robbed, drained folk keep kowtowing to barons' royal robes and other "pomp and circumstance" recently televised nightly ad nauseam.

      Under William III of Orange’s rule, the Bank of England was formed, and the British monarch has remained with German nobility to this very day. By 1871, every German noble pledged their loyalty to the newly-crowned Kaiser of Germany – Wilhelm I, from the House of Hohenzollern, the king of Prussia, and the prince of Orange.

      With the recent passing of Queen Elizabeth II, the world has been forced to watch the British Crown. During this time, we felt compelled to acknowledge the transfer of the Crown to King Charles III. This series is an ode to the ‘Prussian Pickle’.

      All in the Family

      Charles is a keen student of his family’s ancestry, and for good reason. His lineage is a fascinating journey back in time and reveals much about the monarchy.

      Cousins by the Dozen

      #PrussiaGate has repeatedly contended that the ‘horrible invisible enemy’ we now face morphed into a complex matrix of central banks and globalist corporations after WWII, and is now openly coordinated through the World Economic Forum and controlled via international treaties. These corporate entities are managed and controlled by a shadowy group of private equity managers, hedge funds, and key personnel within the companies. It is hard to know exactly who owns or controls what, but what we do know is this corporate conglomeration owns and controls most of the world’s resources and supply chains, and they make huge profits by engaging nation-states in extortionary contracts.

      The most recent example was seen in the enormous profits made by ‘Big-Pharma’ (Pharmaceutical Industrial Complex) following the Chyna virus and their gene therapy injections, which were mandated by a large number of governments around the world.

        Oh yes! Did you notice that medication Suramin is made by Bayer? Bayer is a German company and is it possible this Suramin can cure a child's autism? Why has it not been marketed in its 100 year history? Who is John Galt?

          IG Farben
          Interessengemeinschaft Farbenindustrie AG (German for 'Dye industry syndicate stock corporation'), commonly known as IG Farben (German for 'IG Dyestuffs'), was a German chemical and pharmaceutical conglomerate. Formed in 1925 from a merger of six chemical companies—BASF, Bayer, Hoechst, Agfa, Chemische Fabrik Griesheim-Elektron, and Chemische Fabrik vorm. Weiler Ter Meer—it was seized by the Allies after World War II and divided back into its constituent companies

          The company had ties in the 1920s to the liberal German People's Party and was accused by the Nazis of being an "international capitalist Jewish company".[8] A decade later, it was a Nazi Party donor and, after the Nazi takeover of Germany in 1933, a major government contractor, providing significant material for the German war effort. Throughout that decade it purged itself of its Jewish employees; the remainder left in 1938.[9] Described as "the most notorious German industrial concern during the Third Reich"[10] in the 1940s the company relied on slave labour from concentration camps, including 30,000 from Auschwitz,[11] and was involved in
          medical experiments on inmates at both Auschwitz and the Mauthausen concentration camp.[12][13] One of its subsidiaries supplied the poison gas, Zyklon B, that killed over one million people in gas chambers during the Holocaust.[
