Mayor Mike … Technocracy Is 'The Bomb'
November 09, 2012
This isn't the biggest story in the world but it is one with clear power elite memes. The dominant social theme obviously has to do with the need for government, the larger the better. The subdominant social theme is that oil is in short supply generally and ne ...
Republicans Rage as the Great Burning Arrives
November 08, 2012
Post-election, the US Republican Party will go about the business of tearing itself to pieces, as well it should. As observers of directed history here at the Daily Bell, watching the past ten years of politics presented via the prism of what we call the Intern ...
Now EU Seeks to Ban the Family
November 08, 2012
Whenever we look, we are assaulted by unbelievable legislative actions. This has got to be the most incredible idea yet: To legislate portrayals of the family out of existence. What kinds of people come up with these ideas? What kind of people vote on them? Thi ...
Democracy Won Today … Truth Lost?
November 07, 2012
We are not surprised by Barack Obama's re-election. We believe the vote was probably rigged, as voting machines across the country now provide opportunities to do just this sort of thing. Not all machines even offer paper tallies anymore. Why would states put m ...
We Told You So!
November 07, 2012
Sometimes in this business of meme tracking an article comes along that is so obvious and blunt it hardly needs scrutiny. This is one of those articles. But its candor does not exempt it from analysis. It is a kind of "best of breed" and worth commenting on if ...
The Manufactured 'Isms' of Elite Prevarications
November 06, 2012
In this article in Der Spiegel, written by columnist Jakob Augstein, we observe the meme that "isms" are different and powerful. Capitalism is different than communism, which is different than socialism, etc. We have some difficulties with this argument. But fi ...
Another Meme Crashes? … Sudden Inkling Chelation Works
November 06, 2012
We've been aware of chelation and its usefulness for several decades. While our position regarding healthcare has gradually changed, we still believe that chelation is useful. Now, apparently, the FDA will have to do the same. Here's what we believe: Strive to ...
The Solution to Unemployment Is Less Monetary Stimulation Not More
November 05, 2012
This is a hopeful article but one that leaves significant questions in its wake. One could ask, for instance, how is it that modern economies can from time to time generate such vast unemployment? And why, most recently, has this unemployment been so difficult ...
The Startling Reality of Money Power
November 05, 2012
It is not actually Britain that has been doing the invading but, apparently, the City of London. What this book doesn't tell you, or at least not the review, is the timeline of invasion. Here's a speculation: The number of invasions and their seriousness picked ...
Bank of England Reports Whitewash Central Bank Reality
November 02, 2012
News comes of the release of no fewer than three separate probes into the Bank of England's performance during the financial crisis that actually started in 2007 and expanded in 2008. The reviews do not apparently cover any of the critical 2007 area. They comm ...
Don't Conceal Your Face At Canadian Protests
November 02, 2012
Yet another erosion of Canadian civil rights. We shouldn't fool ourselves. It is tempting to think of the positives regarding this bill that mostly revolve around police provocations. There are, for instance, credible reports that Canadian police authorities ha ...
Election 2012: When There's No 'There' There
November 01, 2012
Lawrence Summers is offering up his usual recipe for a successful national economy. He seeks government involvement in all ways. Nonetheless, from a perspective of dominant and sub-dominant social themes it is instructive to deconstruct Summers's arguments. The ...
Fake Meme of Food Scarcity Is Deadly Serious
November 01, 2012
There are plenty of sub-dominant themes growing out of this main one of food scarcity. In fact, it is such a deep meme that one could compare it to a bush with many branches. A lot of these sub-dominant social themes could be classified as dominant themes thems ...
Spain: Consequences of a Generalized Depression
October 31, 2012
Sometimes dominant social themes and sub-dominant social themes are unstated instead of stated. One out of every four Spanish workers is now without a job. This is a full-fledged depression by any standard. This statistic is topped by another one, that 50 perce ...
Now Central Bankers Directly Boost Occupy Movement
October 30, 2012
What a surprise ... not! We're long on the record as explaining the essential phony nature of this pseudo youth movement. Funded by George Soros among others and putatively generated out of the socialist-anarchist publication Adbusters, Occupy Wall Street is su ...
Global Warming Meme Powers Hurricane Coverage
October 30, 2012
This Vancouver Sun article is typical of some of the coverage of Hurricane Sandy, which hit New York City and environs yesterday. It is written by William Marsden, author of Fools Rule: Inside the Failed Politics of Climate Change (Knopf). We looked up the book ...
Reporter Exposes Tax Evasion Among Greek Politicians, Targeted for Arrest
October 29, 2012
So it turns out that many Greek politicians have Swiss bank accounts and are not paying taxes due. What does this tell us about "austerity"? ... Only that it is a meme, as we have previously discussed. What is going on in Greece and elsewhere is that a small cl ...
Spain Probes Shoppers for Tax Evasion
October 29, 2012
Tax crackdowns are an emerging meme but this news, above, is especially egregious. The powers-that-be use a divide-and-conquer approach when it comes to much business and regulation. And this approach is increasing. The idea basically is to turn businesses into ...
The Recovery Meme and Why It's Just Talk
October 26, 2012
No. It's just not true. There is no real recovery in Britain or anywhere else in the world, for that matter. The banking elites that caused this rolling depression are in full cry about the struggles they are taking to cure it. In doing so, they reinforce the m ...
The Afghan War: Just the Facts
October 26, 2012
The deaths in Afghanistan, after more than a decade of war, keep climbing. Our paradigm proves itself out daily. The West is not in Afghanistan to help its women. The West is not in Afghanistan because of its mineral wealth. The West is not in Afghanistan to cr ...
Diminishing EU a Wonder to Behold
October 25, 2012
Ambrose Evans-Pritchard partially redeems himself with this article. After going through a bad patch when he loosed his inner Keynesian and inflicted it on innocent readers, he provides us with a fairly crisp perspective on the reality of Britain's stance versu ...
Drug Data Manipulation Is Merely More of the Same
October 25, 2012
We're not surprised about this only because we've lost our capacity to be shocked. These days we're surprised only if our worst expectations are NOT fulfilled. Everything – and we do mean everything – in Western culture and corporate enterprise is bent towa ...
Elite View: The Yo-Yo Economy
October 24, 2012
There are problems with Germany but the good news regarding China brings us back to emotional parity. This seems to be the gist, the dominant social theme of this Reuters article. We're supposed to be depressed about Germany but excited about China. The idea th ...
Debt Jubilees and Memes …
October 24, 2012
The idea of a debt jubilee is gaining more and more traction, as John Rubino observes (above) in a recent article posted at Dollar Collapse. Ron Holland has also just written a clear, bold article on a similar concept, debt repudiation, posted today at The Dail ...
Central Banking Premises Are Lacking?
October 23, 2012
This article at Slate illustrates the growing radicalization of the Fed conversation and also how words and premises make it increasingly difficult to discuss central banking logically. It is an analysis of whom Mitt Romney would pick for Fed Chairman if he bec ...
UN Shoe Drops on Internet Terror
October 23, 2012
So here it comes. The powers-that-be have decided that they need to track user details on the Internet to prevent crime. We've reported for a while on private justice. Why is it that proponents of the state simply assume that crime is the state's business? Actu ...
Rediscovering IMF Working Papers
October 22, 2012

What is a Government Job?
October 22, 2012
Can government "create" jobs? Free-market types believe it is impossible for government to generate employment, though politicians claim various kinds of job creation all the time. The New York Times thinks it can. Most of the time, analysis turns on government ...
Down With the West, Long Live the BRICs …
October 19, 2012

BBC Will Find the Sharpest Brits … or Will They?
October 19, 2012
The West's fascination with numeracy continues. It surely is kind of power elite dominant social theme. We've written about this before, in fact. The elites search out a certain kind of intelligence and even select for it. In our view, this is the reason for th ...
Now Mexico Bans Cash
October 18, 2012
What we consider to be the "phony" war on terror is the gift that keeps on giving to those who run our governments. The phony war on drugs only adds to the rationales for telling people what they can and cannot do with their resources. What is going on is a pat ...
BBC Deserves What It Gets
October 18, 2012
The BBC is nothing that the market itself would ever create. At once vindictive and sanctimonious, BBC culture is that of entitlement: Every Briton is forced to pay an annual stipend for the privilege of viewing the BBC. It is held up as a beacon of good taste ...
Housing Demand Is Built on Monetary Policy
October 17, 2012
So builders are busy again in the US. The Fed has been flooding the market with cheap money so we are not surprised. But there are ramifications. It certainly is a dominant social theme, however. The idea is that the economy went through a rough patch but that ...
Ms. Clinton Goes to War?
October 17, 2012
It seems like Hillary Clinton's very own terrorist strike force is about to become a reality. We first wrote about this back in May. You can see the article here: "As Commandos Raid Tampa US State Department Demands Power to Declare War." Ms. Clinton was attend ...
Illegal Downloaders Are Best Customers, Too
October 16, 2012
We've written about copyright and its criminalization numerous times and this article on Geekosystems and the one it is based on at The American Assembly are no surprise: Illegal downloaders are apt to be large record purchasers. This simply makes sense. Those ...
Toll of War Deformities Is Heavy Price to Pay in Iraq
October 16, 2012
People in the West would be shocked to know that their taxes had funded the wholesale poisoning of parts of the Middle East and Afghanistan but increasingly, that's how it seems. We've written about it before numerous times. The culprit is depleted uranium and ...
Compelling Election or Last Gasp of US Representative Democracy?
October 15, 2012
Reuters has posted an editorial from Frederick Kempe maintaining the importance of the upcoming US presidential elections. We've noticed more and more discussion of the importance of this presidential election. It is seemingly being positioned in the mainstream ...

New False Flag as French Youth Supposedly Create 'Identity Generation'
October 12, 2012
France has a new war on its hands launched by "The Generation of National Identity." You can see the YouTube video below ... a professional presentation. This is possibly another dominant social theme taking shape. We see this as a kind of trilogy. First came W ...
Do We Need This? … Hestia Project
October 12, 2012

The IMF Turns Tail on EU Austerity
October 11, 2012
The Telegraph's Jeremy Warner, assistant editor, has written an interesting article about the IMF and its recent actions. We are not so adept at reading certain tea leaves (the IMF's, for instance) as Warner seems to be. But he does make a case – and if corre ...
Lance Armstrong Investigation: Not Really About Sports at All
October 11, 2012
We've written about the vendetta against Lance Armstrong before, and now the proverbial other shoe has dropped. The news is all over the Internet and presumably Armstrong will soon be stripped of various titles. It will be difficult to decide to whom those titl ...
Madness of Markets
October 10, 2012
Almost everything that appears on Bloomberg supports the idea of market failure. The animating perspective of Western mainstream media is that markets need "supervision." But rarely do we find this meme so bluntly presented as in this article excerpted above. I ...
New Lincoln Movie Is Another Obama Promotion?
October 10, 2012
As we analyze dominant social themes, we find the Lincoln meme to be ubiquitous. The idea, of course, is that transformative change comes from the state itself and those who are elected "leaders." The idea of transformative change is not restricted to "leaders" ...
IMF Solutions Reinforce Problems
October 09, 2012
The IMF is getting a good deal of play with a worried world forecast. The concern was stated in the IMF's "World Economic Report." Here's a quote: "A key issue is whether the global economy is just hitting another bout of turbulence in what was always expected ...
'Argo' – Another Iranian Fantasy?
October 09, 2012
A new movie has been launched called "Argo" that purports to tell the story of a CIA-inspired rescue of some Canadians in Iran right after the revolution. It is a true story but the larger context is questionable. The whole war on terror, as many in the alterna ...
Green Shoots Withering?
October 08, 2012
The Atlantic in its 21st century incarnation is a more predictably elitist publication than ever. These days, like the New Yorker, its editors have expanded its brief to include articles on various economic and military-related issues. But we don't find much th ...
NATO Preps Civil War in Afghanistan
October 08, 2012
According to this UK Telegraph columnist, India, Iran and Russia should be approached about supporting Kabul in its attempts to maintain a centralized government in Afghanistan. This is nothing more than a recipe for a civil war, however, and is line with other ...
Upcoming Food Scarcity – Promotion or Reality?
October 05, 2012
The volatile global climate? It's enough to make someone believe in weather control via HAARP! That's how elite scarcity memes work, after all. Say the power elite wants to create a perception of energy scarcity ... We've written about this in the past. Liberta ...
'Another One Bites the Dust'
October 05, 2012
This is a sad article posted at the Huffington Post but we have given this article a foolish and insensitive title to show how easy it is to get inured to this kind of police brutality. There is no other description for it but "brutality." Over and over – al ...
