Inequality Now At Lord And Serf Level

neo-feudalism

I’ve been telling folks for years that the New World Order is not some smiling Utopia, but, rather, a form of feudalism, or neo-feudalism. It is the course we have been moving towards for a hundred years, or more.  – Shorty Dawkins, Associate Editor

You Know Inequality Is Bad … But You Don’t Know HOW Bad

You know inequality is bad … but you don’t know how bad.

We’ve gotten to the overlord and serf level.

Gini Graham Scott writes:

Today, as the rich get richer and the poor get poorer, it seems we are approach[ing] a new Middle Ages in America, as inequality increasingly spreads through the land. It is as if the super-rich are like the new royalty and the top 1 percent are living in mansions like the old castles of kings in the kingdoms that eventually melded into Europe and the U.K.

***

This situation is much like what existed in the Middle Ages, with today’s poor underclass much in the position of the peasants, and the super-rich like the nobility ….

The 85 richest people have as much money as the 3.5 billion poorest people (that’s half of the entire world population).

Indeed:

The global 1 percent has increased their wealth from $100 trillion to $127 trillion in just three years.

***

[Each year since the 2008 recession], the 1 percent took in anywhere from $2.3 trillion to $5.7 trillion per year. (All numeric analysis is detailed here.)

***

[T]he middle class is disappearing at the global level. An incredible one of every ten dollars of global wealth was transferred to the elite 1 percent in just three years. A level of inequality deemed unsustainable three years ago has gotten even worse.

  1. it is “Capitalism”, therefore it must be good.

    The concentration of all property in the oligarchy, and consequently the “ownership” of all
    labor results in slavery.

    Capitalism without a conscience is a lousy system, as we are now witnessing

    Without freedom who cares what kind of economic system you have. As Patrick Henry said: “Give me liberty, or give me death.”

    But what’s the solution. –A righteous king?

    [Associate Editor’s note: Remember the Alamo,
    Good heavens no! A righteous King? That is just what the NWO would have you believe is the answer.

    “Capitalism without a conscience is a lousy system, as we are now witnessing”
    What we have in this Country is not Capitalism. It is Corporatism. Actually, most people think Capitalism is Free Markets. It isn’t, for it accepts the centralization of capital. It is, IMHO, this centralization of capital that has destroyed us. It has given those with the access to that capital enormous power over our daily lives. What we need is free markets, which excludes, by its true definition, the privilege granted to corporations. Get rid of corporations, of all sizes, FIAT Money, and all Central Banks, and maybe we can begin to find our way to a free market and a just society. – Shorty Dawkins]

  2. I DEFINETLY was not referring to a human king, since there is no such thing as a RIGHTEOUS human king. I was referring to God himself. There is none righteous but him.

    And I agree with you on the destruction that the concentration of capital brings particularly by way of corporations. I personally have always tried to spend my money with smaller businesses rather than patronize big corporate America. I believe in buying American goods from local and small business to further the economic opportunity of individual Americans.

  3. “The 85 richest people have as much money …”

    The answer is not easy, but we can get through this by creating an alternative currency. We can start it out simply by labor = X $’s. (I am using $$ as that is our currency that most people relate to, but would NOT be our alternative currency.)

    corbettreport.com has some information on alternative currencies in existence today. WE can trade, use alternative currencies, and cut the bottom right out of them here in the USA. If we no longer depend on the dollar, if we can start getting people to create businesses that will trade in alternative currencies and trade we can get through this in decent shape.

    But we have to start it soon, very soon because this treasonous declaration by the Gov of Missouri of “emergency powers” is a test to see if we are going to stand for this (I, JEREMIAH W. (JAY) NIXON… do hereby declare a State of Emergency exists in the State of Missouri”).

    This breaking the Oath by JEREMIAH W. (JAY) NIXON, which is a felony (at least one) and treason against the USA, the state of Missouri, the American people because there is no such authority given to anyone within our governments by the supreme LAW of THIS land, the US Constitution and all that is in Pursuance thereof it.

    This is treason on his part, and will be treason on the part of any officer/etc who follows that unlawful (“color of law”, pretend law”) order. It will be *terrorism against the people of Missouri by everyone who follows those orders (28 C.F.R. Section 0.85 Terrorism is defined as “the unlawful use of force and violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives”.)

    The Supreme Court of the United States, 1866: “The Constitution of the United States is a law for rulers and people, equally in war and peace, and covers with the shield of its protection all classes of men, at all times, and under all circumstances. No doctrine involving more pernicious consequences was ever invented by the wit of man than that any of its provisions can be suspended during any of the great exigencies of government. Such a doctrine leads directly to anarchy or despotism.”

    James Madison: “Because if . . . [An Unalienable Natural Right of Free Men] . . . be exempt from the authority of the Society at large, still less can it be subject to that of the Legislative Body. The latter are but the creatures and vicegerents of the former. Their jurisdiction is both derivative and limited: It is limited with regard to the coordinate departments, more necessarily is it limited with regard to the constituents. The preservation of a free Government requires, not merely, that the metes and bounds which separate each department of power be invariably maintained: but more especially that neither of them be suffered to overleap the greater Barrier which defends the rights of the people. The Rulers who are guilty of such an encroachment, exceed the commission from which they derive their authority, and are Tyrants. The people who submit to it are governed by laws made neither by themselves nor by an authority derived from them, and are Slaves”

    Judge Thomas M. Cooley: “Legislators have their authority measured by the Constitution, they are chosen to do what it permits, and NOTHING MORE, and they take solemn oath to obey and support it. . . To pass an act when they are in doubt whether it does or does not violate the Constitution is to treat as of no force the most imperative obligations any person can assume.”

    James Madison: “… the equal right of every citizen … is held by the same tenure with all our other rights. If we recur to its origin, it is equally the gift of nature; if we weigh its importance, it cannot be less dear to us; if we consult the “Declaration of those rights which pertain to the good people of Virginia, as the basis and foundation of Government,” it is enumerated with equal solemnity, or rather studied emphasis. Either then, we must say, that the Will of the Legislature is the only measure of their authority; and that in the plenitude of this authority, they may sweep away all our fundamental rights; or, that they are bound to leave this particular right untouched and sacred: Either we must say, that they may controul the freedom of the press, may abolish the Trial by Jury, may swallow up the Executive and Judiciary Powers of the State; nay that they may despoil us of our very right of suffrage, and erect themselves into an independent and hereditary Assembly or, we must say, that they have no authority to enact into the law the Bill under consideration. We the Subscribers say, that the General Assembly of this Commonwealth have no such authority: And that no effort may be omitted on our part against so dangerous an usurpation, we oppose to it, this remonstrance; earnestly praying, as we are in duty bound, that the Supreme Lawgiver of the Universe, by illuminating those to whom it is addressed, may on the one hand, turn their Councils from every act which would affront his holy prerogative, or violate the trust committed to them: and on the other, guide them into every measure which may be worthy of his blessing, may redound to their own praise, and may establish more firmly the liberties, the prosperity and the happiness of the Commonwealth.”

    Notice that it was the Supreme courts “gave” “emergency powers”, though it was not, and still is not, a power granted to them to give or use.

    Dr. Edwin Vieira: “This has nothing to do with personalities or subjective ideas. It’s a matter of what the Constitution provides…

    The government of the United States has never violated anyone’s constitutional rights… The government of the United States will never violate anyone constitutional rights, because it cannot violate anyone’s constitutional rights. The reason for that is: The government of the United States is that set of actions by public officials that are consistent with the Constitution. Outside of its constitutional powers, the government of the United States has no legitimacy. It has no authority; and, it really even has no existence. It is what lawyers call a legal fiction.

    … the famous case Norton v. Shelby County… The Court said: “An unconstitutional act is not a law; it confers no rights; it imposes no duties. It is, in legal contemplation, as inoperative as though it had never been passed.”

    And that applies to any (and all) governmental action outside of the Constitution…”
    What are the defining characteristics of a limited government? They are its disabilities; what it does not have legal authority to do. Look at the First Amendment… What does it do? It guarantees freedom of speech, freedom of press, freedom of religion. But how does it do that? I quote: “Congress shall make no law abridging the freedom of speech or of the press” etcetera. “Congress shall make no law;” that’s a statement of an absence of power. That’s a statement of a disability.

    If we go to the doctrine of “Emergency Powers,”… what was the foundational case that put that doctrine on the constitutional map? It was Knox vs. Lee, the legal tender cases brought after the Civil War.

    … … read a dissenting opinion by Justice Stephen Field, the only Justice on the Supreme Court who had the integrity to dissent in every legal tender case that he heard. He wrote a dissenting opinion in Dooley vs. Smith, in 1872. He wrote, “The arguments in favor of the constitutionality of legal tender paper currency tend directly to break down the barriers which separate a government of limited powers from a government resting in the unrestrained will of Congress. Those limitations must be preserved, or our government will inevitably drift from the system established by our Fathers into a vast, centralized, and consolidated government.”

    You notice he was not talking specifically about the monetary powers. He wasn’t saying that these arguments would lead to the monetary powers being unrestrained. It was destroying the concept of limited government. “The arguments in favor of the constitutionality of legal tender paper currency tend directly to break down the barriers which separate a government of limited powers from a government resting in the unrestrained will of Congress.” How do you define, or how would you characterize, a government resting in the unrestrained will of Congress, or any other political body? It is by definition a totalitarian government…

    The Federal Reserve System was there when the greatest banking collapse in American history occurred, in 1932-1933, and in what was called the Great Depression of the 1930s. In that period what happened? The Roosevelt New Deal. What were the powers they were screaming for? Emergency powers. You’ll find that written into many statutes, e.g., The Emergency Banking Act of 1933. You should pay attention to the title, The Emergency Banking Act of 1933, and the “Aggregate Powers” doctrine. It’s been all downhill since then.
    … 
    How should that have been done? Well, Americans would have had to understand and enforce their Constitution. You notice I say Americans, not the Congress or the Supreme Court, because who is the final arbiter of this document? [holding a copy of the Constitution] It is not Congress, and it is not the Supreme Court. It is “we the people.” Read the thing. How does it start? “We the people do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States”; not “we the politicians,” not “we the judges.” Those people are the agents of the people. We the people are the principals.
    The doctrine is very clear that, being the principals, we are the Constitution’s ultimate interpreters and enforcers. You don’t have to take my word for it. Let’s go back to the Founding Fathers…

    The Founding Fathers were profound students of law and political philosophy, their knowledge unequaled by any today. Their mentor in that era was William Blackstone, who wrote Blackstone’s Commentaries, probably the most widely read legal treatise of its time, certainly here in the United States. What did Blackstone write about this subject? He wrote, “Whenever a question arises between the society at large and any magistrate vested with powers originally delegated by that society, it must be decided by the voice of the society itself; there is not upon earth any other tribunal to resort to.”

    “We the people are the Constitution’s ultimate interpreters”. Dr. Edwin Vieira, http://www.constitution.org/mon/vieira_03225.htm
