Is the Tea Party a Modern-Day Renaissance?
September 20, 2010
We can only repeat that what is happening is a process, not a series of inexplicable, serial events. Of course, we may yet be wrong. Perhaps the power elite can - via censorship and military force - reverse the trends that we see continuing to grow. But think f ...
Why Does the US Need a Consumer Czar?
September 18, 2010
There is so much that is strange about this consumer financial protection bureau that it is not easy to know where to start. First of all transactions between someone borrowing money and someone lending it do not strike us as "consumption." We think of consumpt ...
Why Government Is Necessary for Prosperity
September 17, 2010
This era has proven remarkable. We can actually see how dominant social themes are being built. We have compared this to watching an island form in the ocean out of volcanic material. It is a rare occurrence, but one that has confirmed our perspectives. The pla ...
Afghanistan Not Vietnam?
September 17, 2010
We really don't understand what is going on in Afghanistan anymore - or not from the perspective of the Anglo-American axis. Is it turning into another Vietnam, replete with body counts? Now there are "metrics" that the Pentagon and Obama administration are goi ...
EU Bars France: Now It Begins
September 16, 2010
It is true that as the Internet becomes more comprehensive, patterns emerge. We see patterns and often those who patronize our humble blog see the same patterns, and others, only more deeply and clearly. We are grateful when they present these visions to us via ...
Internet Continues to Change the World
September 16, 2010
This is a strange story for the mainstream media to carry. We don't see any promotion here, not even a dominant social theme necessarily – as we believe the above-excerpted article provides us with a fairly clear recitation of what is actually occurring, and ...
IMF: It Falls Apart
September 15, 2010
We return to the West's sputtering economy and horrific unemployment because it shows two things. One, elite-structured capitalism doesn't work and, two, the Anglo-American power elite is most nervous about social explosions as a result of the crashing monetary ...
NATO Takes Over?
September 14, 2010
We recently wrote about how a takeover by Brussels of Britain's financial centers was actually in our view nothing more than a real-estate transaction. British finance may move to Belgium, but the Anglo-American axis will still maintain control of it, just as t ...
What Has Happened to US Movies?
September 14, 2010
Satirist Joe Queenan is in great form in this article excerpted above and featured recently by the Wall Street Journal. Not only has it set the blogosphere abuzz, but we think it captures neatly an unspoken trend, which is that the movie fare that Hollywood pro ...
Military Keynesianism in Iraq
September 13, 2010
We have no idea where Iraq is getting the money to buy its weapons. Presumably, Iraq will print the money and the money will essentially act as a claim on Iraq's productivity as the Iraq political and military elite arm themselves first for domestic reasons and ...
First American Autism Award
September 13, 2010
The power elite, in our view, has a special affection for vaccine programs. The more emphatically efficacious it can make vaccines seem, the more ability the elite has to promote a variety of vaccine programs without significant push-back. We are also aware tha ...
Europe Takes Over the City
September 11, 2010
It is likely confusing for most people to understand what is going on regarding the British financial system and Europe. On the surface it looks like a takeover of the British system, with the important regulatory elements migrating to Brussels. This is in fact ...
Peak Oil Bites the Dust?
September 11, 2010
Here at The Daily Bell we continue to cheerfully cover the degeneration of the elite's dominant social themes. (See other story in today's Bell.) The 21st century's truth telling via the Internet and the endless ravel of the financial crisis has proven increasi ...
China Real Estate Glut Widens
September 10, 2010
Once again we read an optimistic article about China and the Chinese miracle. We do not understand at this point how anyone looking at China can be positive about where this largest-of-all Asian economies is headed. Citing various kinds of industrial statistics ...
Afghanistan End Game
September 10, 2010
This is a dangerous time in Afghanistan for the West. As we have covered in numerous articles, Afghanistan is a war that the West wants desperately to win. This runs counter to the point of view of many in the alternative news community who believe that the Wes ...
Is It Deflation Yet?
September 09, 2010
Issues of inflation and deflation did not seem so important earlier in the 2000s, but the inflation versus deflation debate has heated up lately. The above article that we have excerpted has attracted considerable attention on the blogosphere, maybe because it ...
EU Fizzling
September 08, 2010
We have mentioned many times before that "austerity" was the wrong prescription for Europe. But the idea many have is that lazy European socialists deserve what they get. This is in fact, part of a dominant social theme, "The socialists have ruined Europe for E ...
Big Science Goes Broke?
September 08, 2010
We've written a good deal about big, government-funded science. Whenever we do, we get defense feedbacks from those who are somehow invested in the process. These feedbacks make it clear that in the 21st century – unlike the 20 preceding ones – things are " ...
TIME Spreads the Government-Wealth Meme
September 07, 2010
The Daily Bell analyzes the dominant social themes of the elite and thus it is natural that the Bell should be in the forefront of pointing out that the mainstream media presents these fear-based promotions. One of the ways, ironically, that the elite runs its ...
Combating HAARP Suspicions
September 07, 2010
Though hardly any of it seems to resonate with the American mainstream press, the rest of the globe is alive with conspiracy theories about American military power, 9/11, HAARP and other maleficent and perhaps mythical US schemes for global domination - full sp ...
EU Treasury Overkill?
September 06, 2010
In the other article in today's Daily Bell, we focus on how the elite back-story is in a sense falling apart with the foundering of the global warming promotion. We find much the same elements at work when it comes to the EU, which is being forced into existenc ...
Failure of the Famine Meme
September 06, 2010
There are plenty of people who don't and never will believe in organized fear-based promotions orchestrated by a shadowy, familial power elite. But it is this publications raison d'etre to discuss these promotions, point them out to those who wish to accept the ...
US Fed Gains Power, Loses Credibility?
September 04, 2010
Despite such statements from Ben Bernanke, we would venture the observation that there is an ever-growing perception within the alternative news community (especially among the hard-money websites) that the Fed and central banking in general constitute an illeg ...
Kenya – New World Building Block
September 03, 2010
It would be nice to think that the new Kenyan constitution is going to be helpful to the country and to Africa generally. But when we read the constitution we find as usual these days that the power of the people is vested in the state. The dominant social them ...
Psychic Regulation
September 03, 2010
We have been writing about regulation lately because the regulatory state is one of the very biggest of all power-elite themes. The financial crisis has actively fanned the flames of regulation. But at some point, regulatory society must surely crosses the divi ...
Bank Run 2011?
September 02, 2010
Here at the Daily Bell, we long ago adopted the position that the Great Recession of the late first-decade of the 2000s is nothing like previous economic downturns. Several years ago we came to the conclusion that this crisis marked the unraveling of the curren ...
Mises Shakes the World?
September 02, 2010
We are returning to the "Spreading Hayek, Spurning Keynes" Wall Street Journal article to answer the question that Ryan McMaken asks in his fine article at LewRockwell.com (and then answers judiciously as well). We are returning as well because this is an incre ...
DC Begins the Bust Up
September 01, 2010
So now the government is to step in and undo companies that are "headed" for collapse. This seems to us yet another step forward into a kind of bizarre alternative universe where free-markets are controlled and free-enterprise is managed. Anyone who has lived m ...
Thorium Cures the Free Market
September 01, 2010
We have lost track of the new energy solutions being offered on the Internet, which is certainly large energy companies' worst nightmare. Solutions abound from cars that run on water or natural gas to more obscure and less immediately comprehensible presentatio ...
Boetkke Promotion Redux
August 31, 2010
We confess here that we have gone as far as we can with this analysis. We are not qualified to speak to the issue of Hayek versus Mises from the point of view of the Kochs - as Lew Rockwell and others around him can. We know that Hayek was likely not as doctrin ...
Obama Admin Calls US Education Failure
August 31, 2010
The Hill never met a large-scale socialist program it couldn't analyze and present with resolute clarity. This is what passes for journalism these days on Capitol Hill. Other publications are not much better and now that we think of it, the Washington Post is p ...
WSJ Discovers the Austrians & Boettke – but not the Mises Institute
August 30, 2010
Peter Boettke is a terrific spokesperson for Austrian economics and has been at it for years. He deserves all the credit he can get for being in the right place at the right time - and correct about economic history as well. We here at the Bell wish we had inte ...
Australia Next Afghan Domino?
August 30, 2010
There are only a few tribes left to gather into a nation-state – chief among them the Pashtuns. Tribal cultures cannot be allowed to stand if the West is to enter the brave new world of its elite's choosing. This is why the Afghan war, waged on arid, mountain ...
Tea Party Infighting?
August 28, 2010
This blog-article, while not "mainstream" of itself, touches on plenty of mainstream issues. It was also posted after being written on the "conservative" RedState website, and we found the discussion that took place there to be enlightening in terms of what is ...
False Lure of an Infrastructure Bank
August 27, 2010
This is an interesting article because it acknowledges what free-market economic analysis has pointed out emphatically ever since the economic crisis began – that it was driven by a reckless and inflationary fiat money expansion. The New Republic article does ...
More Vaccination Questions
August 27, 2010
It certainly seems to us that the powers-that-be standing behind many of these pharmaceutical companies and their "medical model" continue to do whatever they can to intimidate those who would raise questions about vaccines and their side effects. The Swine Flu ...
The End of Global Banking Misery?
August 26, 2010
Western command-and-control systems are worldwide now. In fact, of course, this is a dominant social theme: "The West's economic perspective is a global one because of its efficiency and it is necessary to deal with it in a global way." We disagree with this pe ...
Meme of the Mosque
August 26, 2010
From our humble point of view, the controversy surrounding the mosque near Ground Zero has already done the job it is supposed to do. Its main duty might be seen, from a promotional standpoint, as one of bringing American's attention back again to the realizati ...
Is It an Elite Depression?
August 25, 2010
In analyzing the memes of the Anglo-American power elite and its berserker attempts at creating global governance, we face the conundrum of whether what is going on is part of a larger plan or the crumbling of a plan. This is not just a question for the Daily B ...
Political Paralysis Spreads to Australia?
August 25, 2010
We have spent time in the past several years analyzing the ongoing unraveling of the power elite's "democracy" meme. This of course is a widespread perception now and in America has even caused a new political movement – the Tea Party movement. Many people in ...
Falsity of Creative Destruction
August 24, 2010
This is a very interesting article that appears in Newsweek by James Manyika, Susan Lund and Byron Auguste. Manyika is a director of the global management and consulting firm McKinsey & Co, (Newsweek tells us), and of the McKinsey Global Institute, where Lund i ...
Muslim Bogeymen
August 24, 2010
Both in terms of feedback to the Daily Bell and in the larger Western (American) society, we see an uptick of Islamic demonization. From our point of view, as we have expressed many times, this demonization of the "other" is a kind of power-elite dominant socia ...
The Artificiality of Corporations
August 23, 2010
There is fairly clear evidence that the rise of tcorporation, a basically Anglo-American concept has run into rougher waters in this era of the Internet – as the Wall Street Journal points out. But the Journal for all its skepticism takes the rise of Western ...
Obama's Royal Retinue
August 23, 2010
It is not a novel observation, but it probably bears repeating. The vacations that President Obama takes are like some sort of royal procession. It wasn't so obvious under George Bush because he had his own "ranch" to go to. But like Bill Clinton, Obama is a wa ...
Maybe US Wants Iran to Have the Bomb?
August 21, 2010
All 1,000 of us gathered around the Bell conference table and there wasn't any room to breathe. So we scattered and a few of us decided to write this article. The rest went hiking. It is actually not our hypothesis but that of a very paranoid individual's. Call ...
10 Credible Conspiracy Theories?
August 20, 2010
While popular, left-wing website AlterNet cannot be considered mainstream media per se, this article partakes of the modern Western (mostly US) tradition of debunking suspicions that people may have about their government. It is especially a US dominant social ...
Rise of the Neo-Authoritarian Intelligentsia
August 20, 2010
We were startled to find this article appearing in the leftist Salon.com because it deals evidently and obviously with the Daily Bell theme: that prominent writers can construct fear-based arguments that help support larger power-elite dominant social themes. I ...
The Genius of Murdoch
August 19, 2010
Rupert Murdoch is a full-on genius - as we have pointed out before. Having purchased the Wall Street Journal and implemented a pay wall, he now has to come up with compelling news and opinions to make the Journal worthwhile buying. We know he is succeeding beca ...
GM – A Sucker's Bet?
August 19, 2010
GM is going back into the markets. GM is a new and improved car company and is back on its feet again. Is there a further elaboration of a dominant social theme we could muster? Perhaps there is: "Government knows what it is doing and President Barack Obama sav ...
Dick Armey's Tea-Party Coup
August 18, 2010
A number of month ago, we wrote a good many articles about the Tea Party movement. Along with everyone else we were trying to figure out what it was about and why there seemed to be several different movements and no real way of determining who was in charge or ...
