Turning Off the Water — and Turning On Your Mind

THERE ARE PLACES in some American cities where the police will not go: neighborhoods in Tucson, Los Angeles, and other parts of the American southwest that are turning into Aztlan, where brown drug gangs provide a de facto government of sorts. It’s much safer for officers to be issuing tickets in the White suburbs, and they’re staying where it’s safer, thank you, unless forced to do otherwise. In the Black-ruled cities of the former industrial East and Midwest — like Detroit and Baltimore and many others — Black administrations are in nominally in charge, but gangsters are given almost free rein to run certain “hoods” as they see fit, as we saw recently in the television coverage of the Baltimore riots where the Crips and Bloods and others were interviewed openly and respectfully as community spokesmen of sorts.

The Cost

HOW MUCH has it cost us to become subservient to the Jewish power structure? How much has it cost us to open our borders and embrace multiracialism, which we did largely at their insistence? How much has it cost us to see our once-shining cities gutted and turned into filthy ghettos? How much has it cost us to support the Jewish state of Israel? How much has it cost us to come under the financial tyranny of their banks and their debt-money system?

I usually don’t quantify our problems as White Americans in dollars and cents, but let’s make an exception today. Sometimes it’s valuable to look at things from an economic perspective, just to get a feeling for the enormity of the problem.

Let’s try to answer those questions in the most cautious and careful way we can.

What Is Fascism?

by James Miller

POLITICAL RADICALS OFTEN SHOUT, “Fascist! Fascist!” at anyone who doesn’t agree with their views. The term is especially popular among college students. But do such people actually know what Fascism is? Have they studied it?

Unfortunately, Fascism has an undeserved bad reputation. Regardless of this reputation, Fascism is a very sensible economic and social ideology. There are a few different “flavors” of Fascism, but basically they all come down to the following.

Fascism is an economic system in which a nation’s government plays a central role in monitoring all banking, trade, production, and labor activity which takes place within the nation. Such monitoring is done for the sole purpose of safeguarding and advancing the nation and its people. Under Fascism, the government will not approve of any business activity unless that business has a positive impact on the nation as a whole and the people of the nation — this is the axiom which determines everything under Fascism.

Perpetual Growth is Impossible

Chessboard diagram: exponential growth

PERPETUAL GROWTH IS IMPOSSIBLE: We’ve all heard the story of the clever merchant who asked the King to pay him with grains of wheat placed on a chessboard. On the first square he was to receive one grain; on the second, two grains; on the third, four grains — doubling with every square up to the 64th. The King readily agreed to pay such a small sum; How much could it add up to in just 63 doublings, after all? The answer is that more grain than exists in the entire world would have to be placed on the 64th square. That is “the magic of compound interest” and it is 1)  the reason that perpetual economic growth is impossible and 2) the reason that economies based on the creation of money as interest-bearing debt (read: all modern economies) inevitably go into crisis and fail.

The maverick Jewish writer Israel Shamir has just published Tom White’s extensive treatment of the subject which is well worth reading.

Logical Economics

THE FACT THAT the fetid “economic stimulus” nonsense that continuously emanates from the professional plunderers in Washington is accepted by intelligent people is disturbing to me.

The idea that politicians can actually give us “free” anything — especially “free money” — is a perennial fallacy that would be laughed out of elementary school if real economics were taught to our children, as it should be. The acceptance of that fallacy by the manipulated and ignorant mob will surely deprive us of our freedom — and our children of their rightful inheritance.

The antidote to ignorance is education. For any intelligent child who is approaching the age of reason and who has somehow learned to read well despite the best efforts of the modern “educators,” the great work of the French economist Jean-Baptiste Say, A Treatise on Political Economy, will provide the grounding in economics that he or she needs.

Bankrupting the Country

Dollars Falling from the Sky

BANKRUPTING THE COUNTRY?: Many economists these days are expressing fears that the “stimulus” program and spending sprees of the regime in Washington could lead to severe inflation, “bankrupting the country.” They make a good case, but it’s a little confusing when they refer to bankrupting the country when really they’re referring to bankrupting the government. Bankrupting (and eventually totally discrediting) the government is certainly very bad for the government — but it might end up being very good indeed for the nation that throws off such government.

Fed reduces rate to 1%


FEDERAL RESERVE KEY RATE NOW 1%:
As the BBC says, this means the Fed is now “running out of rates” to boost the economy; of course, they could always go to negative interest rates and toss pre-approved loan applications out of airplanes. Maybe they should take my suggestion: make Monopoly money legal tender — it amounts to the same thing. Time to take a closer look at the crime of fractional reserve banking and the rationality of Social Credit.
