IMF's Lagarde Says Clock Ticking for U.S., European Policy Makers on Debt … Christine Lagarde (left), the new head of the International Monetary Fund, urged U.S. policy makers to quickly agree on a fiscal plan and avoid default, while warning Europeans that they are also under pressure to implement their own measures to alleviate the debt crisis. … The former French finance minister hinted that she may seek more money for the IMF. The decision by the group of 20 nations in 2009 to triple IMF resources "was exactly the right move," she said. "The question is do we still have the level of resources that is now needed and appropriate to address the crises?" – Bloomberg
Dominant Social Theme: With a little more money the IMF can fix all.
Free-Market Analysis: We have been predicting in these humble pages that the current crises sweeping through the world's financial marts would be used to galvanize support for an even greater consolidation of globalist power. And now, here comes Christine Lagarde, speaking at the Council on Foreign Relations, warning not only America's "wise leaders" to get their financial house in order, but also the Europeans too. She truly speaks to all nations with a very authoritarian voice.
Lagarde is wasting no time in positioning the IMF as the ultimate provider of wisdom and understanding – the ideal institution to help lead the world forward. As she winds her way through her performance, we envision a crowd of CFR attendee's swooning to-and-fro in gleeful unison, machinating how to advance the new world order. Oh how much more pleasant she is at this than DSK! (Sarcasm off.)
The reality of the global financial turmoil that has everyone's attention right now, and deservedly so, is NOT going to be fixed as long as we-the-people continue to give these "wise leaders" the license to oppose the laws of nature. It is the inconsistencies associated with econometrics and central planning, which run counter to the basic operating systems that drive individuals and communal realtionships generally.
People make billions and billions, perhaps trillions and trillions, of decisions each and everyday about a whole host of things that affect their lives. The totality of all these decisions shapes the overall environment around us. And the closer the decision maker is to the ultimate effect of the actual decision being made, the more likely the individual will choose a course that best represents his or her interest.
However, over time via mind manipulation and outright physical oppression, people have been beaten down by fear and removed from taking personal responsibility for their own lives. And at different times in history the processes used to destroy people's liberties and freedoms has had to change – and not because the power elite necessarily wanted it to.
Prior to the advent of the Gutenberg Press, the primary method of mind manipulation and propaganda was the Roman Catholic Church. The RCC, together with Europe's ruling Monarch's, had total control over the fear-based dominant social themes that kept the masses under their rule. But the Press changed all that and opened people's minds.
The history of the Renaissance and subsequent Protestant Reformation is well understood by many people. Perhaps less understood is why it happened. To appreciate what inspired the social change and accompanying turmoil of that era is to understand what is shaping the "crises" around the world today and, perhaps more importantly, the expected trends one can forsee by applying that knowledge.
The Anglosphere elites seek world governance. The UN, WHO, IMF, World Bank, ICC, NATO et al., along with their affiliated think tanks Tavistock, CFR, etc., – not to mention central banks – were all created BEFORE the Internet was developed – at least for mainstream use. These edifices were – and still are – meant to be the international control centers for the entire planet's population. The plan calls for an extreme form of centralization, one that inevitably removes any chance for the "individual" to exist. It is a plan that empowers a "chosen, self-appointed few" to make all of the decisions for everybody.
Of course we disagree with those who seek such an Orwellian society. We believe, as stated above, that government should exist in its most minimal form to protect the natural rights of the individual – not destroy them. But Lagrade and people like her sell the belief that they can do a better job of steering the ship of life, so to speak. Once again, we humbly disagree and side with Ludwig von Mises on this one. And not only do we … but millions of more people do today as well – and more will tomorrow too.
This is the impact that the Internet Reformation is having and what is ultimately flipping the legitimacy of the globalist construct on its proverbial head. People are learning how they've been defrauded by a corrupt and unfair system. They can see for themselves that money as it exists today is nothing but a PONZI scheme and that central banks are destroying people's lives, literally. People don't like to be defrauded. People see how mainstream media is a talking mouthpiece for the money elite and reinforces the "wise leader syndrome." People don't like to be brainwashed. People see how both sides of the political aisle in all Western government structures are really one in the same and that the same money elite who control the money supply and mainstream media are in total control of the Hegelian Dialectic. People don't like to feel as if they have no voice.
Today people are fed up. And rightfully so. The globalists are once again feeling the pressure that comes from an increase in public consciousness. It has been roughly 500 years since the Gutenberg Press inspired its "season of change." Well, we are just in the dawning days of this 'Net-inspired "season of change" and the collectivist agenda is rapidy being exposed for the brutal destroyer to natural liberty that it is.
Will the financial crises be "fixed" by increasing the debt ceiling? Not a chance. Will the IMF be able to do a better job of managing the world financial crises with more "resources?" Nope. But they will certainly try and convince a struggling mass of voters, as their national economies continue to implode, that the solution is in unification.
The reason the turmoil is happening now is that people are awakening. It is really that simple. But the greater question remaining to be seen is whether or not the Internet Reformation will move quicker at exposing the rot within the current planners' system than the planners can at advancing and implementing their global agenda. This is the struggle.
The world is caught in a cycle of unsustainable lies. The tricks have been played. The memes have been spun. Today's financial system is based on phony money. People's faith in it is rapidly eroding and they are employing individual strategies to get out of harm's way, or at least to the best of their ability. That is why the world's financial markets are in turmoil. The pool of "believers" is shrinking. There will be pain to come as reality takes root, but the positive, dear reader, is that we all have a chance to build something new – a free-market.
