Anonymous, all of the banks, and at least one lawyer
By now everyone in the world knows that Anonymous claims to have lifted 12 million sets of Apple user details from the feds; that the feds say we never had them in the first place; and that Apple says it never gave it to them anyway. The first is wholly believable (and most likely true); the second is unbelievable – and although I don’t know about the third, I have my suspicions.
But that’s not what I want to talk about. It is the message from Anonymous in its announcement. You can read it here: SPECIAL #FFF EDITION – ANONYMOUS. It’s long, it’s a little bit rambling, but it’s well worth the effort.
If you do read it, stop and think about it. Don’t dismiss it as the paranoia of disaffected teenage geeks. Instead, take a moment to consider the message:
You[r] home, stuff, car and computer, you will pay for everything you have for all of your life. All the time: a monthly fee, forever until you die. That’s the future; nothing is really yours. LAAS – Life As A Service. You will rent your life.
You’ll be tempted to dismiss it. Don’t. Jump over to 10 Things That Every American Should Know About The Federal Reserve. This one is written by a lawyer: Michael T. Snyder, a graduate of the McIntire School of Commerce at the University of Virginia with two law degrees from the University of Florida.
The truth is that our current debt-based monetary system was designed by greedy bankers that wanted to make enormous profits by using the Federal Reserve as a tool to create money out of thin air and lend it to the U.S. government at interest.
In the traditional sense, this one is better written, but they both say the same thing: different words, different grammar, different style – but still the same thing. Banks trap us in debt. It’s a syphoning system. They create money that doesn’t exist, and they certainly don’t have, and then one way or another they ‘lend’ it to us. We have to pay back, ostensibly with real money but actually with our lives, what they created out of nothing.
One way or another, the banks get us to pay them for our own enslavement.
