A Real Currencies Top Ten
In all fairness: I’m astounded by the impact my blogging here at Real Currencies has had on the blogosphere. True, it’s still marginal, but it has been reaching some of the best and brightest out there. So this is as good a time as any to thank both my readers and my many friends in the Alternative Media who have been very supportive of my work.
Usury is slowly but surely gaining traction as one of the more fundamental issues of our time and it’s simply wonderful that some of my writing has been supportive of that trend.
Austrian Economics has been dealt a severe blow, as before there was simply nowhere people could go for a solid, comprehensive appreciation of this utterly detestable mind control operation, trapping so many honest seekers trying to fathom the ‘dismal science’, which is actually a sacred science and which is so fundamental to our well-being here on planet Earth.
I want to thank first and foremost all my readers for putting up with my many flaws and mistakes. And for their wonderful feedback, both in content and in terms of appreciation, the latter category sometimes so positive I had difficulty taking it in.
Next I want to express my gratitude to Henry Makow, who has given me a powerful platform and has helped me immensely in becoming a more effective writer.
And also the many others that have posted my articles, particularly Rixon Stewart, Zen Gardner, Mike Rivero, Doug from Blacklisted News, the good people of Before it’s News and many others.
And of course Memehunter and Faux Capitalist’s Jason Erb, with whom I’m very happy to be associated. Without these guys our little anti-AE campaign would have been unthinkable.
There is no particular reason for all this, but I feel this is in some ways long overdue.
The below list is just my personal choice, based on impact, number of views and ratings.
So here goes:
1. The Dying Dollar and the Rise of a New Currency Order
This article, outlining the longer term trends in terms of the Money Power’s World Currency project was well received immediately after publication, but the reason why it’s my number one is simple: it got no less than 130,000 views, which is major for a fringe blog like Real Currencies. A month after publication it got picked up by Matt Drudge and this netted 120,000 views within 24 hours. From there it was linked to by dozens of other leading websites, including fromthetrenches.com, raidersnewsupdate.com, goldsilver.com and many others. The comments it received on these sites showed the article was eyeopening to many and some people were elated to be exposed to this kind of stuff, notwithstanding its automatic assumption of ‘conspiracy’ and Money Power.
2. On Interest
A bit of a Real Currencies classic, outlining the basic problems with Interest. It was posted on Henry’s site, but also infowars.com, Activistpost.com and many other sites. It remains an excellent primer.
3. Top Ten Lies and Mistakes of Austrian Economics
Another classic. While more than a year old, this article continues to be picked up by many sites and is often shared on Facebook, also on some pretty big ‘walls’. It is often linked to by Libertarian outlets, who are often shocked by its audacity. At least, that’s what I gather from the comments. It covers all the main problems of Austrianism. It’s also well read on Recovering Austrians.
4. How the Money Power created Libertarianism and Austrian Economics
This article certainly cost me a lot of friends in the Alternative Media. Some will still not touch anything from me because of it. It killed my cooperation with Activist Post, for instance. They say you know who’s in power by knowing who you can’t criticize and this is an excellent case in point. They are our friends, not, the Libertarians?
This article would have been impossible without Memehunter and was the start of a series that devastated the credibility of Austrianism for all who care to know.
5. Mutual Credit, the Astonishingly Simple Truth about Money Creation
This article is an introduction to the basic mechanics of Mutual Credit and remains a great way of quickly grasping the simplicity of it all.
6. Understand that the Banking System is One
A clear cut article on banking as a monopolistic cartel. It explains why it is a distraction to follow financial news too closely, let alone all this nonsensical discussion about who is to blame, whether it’s Government, the Banks or the Central Banks. It is closely related to The Few Banks that Own All.
7. The Ron and Rand Paul Betrayal
Months after I published The Ron Paul Challenge: 10 reasons why the Alternative Media is failing this test, all became clear in the elections: Ron and Rand had supported Mitt Romney from day one, getting Rand in pole position for the 2016 ticket. Ron Paul proved to be the most outrageous sell-out in generations and even today the Alternative Media has difficulty coping with this incredible defeat, having been fooled by yet another Money Power Change Agent. This article was also widely read and while he applauded me for not doing the ‘I told you so’ line, Henry introduced the article on his site with ‘We feel vindicated’. Opposing Paul was not a very popular position, but hey, there is fun in that too!
8. Take your Money out of the Bank NOW! (Video)
This article topped the charts at Before it’s News, with tens of thousands of hits and the associated video was also well viewed on Youtube.com.
It makes the mindblowingly obvious case that still very few dare to underwrite: boycott the banks.
9. The US Empire is not the Money Power!
This article was important to me at the time I wrote it. It addresses the mistaken notion that Putin is an enemy of the PTB, because he resists American Imperialism. Too many people assume the NWO is the American Empire, but while the Empire is owned by the Money Power, it is only a tool. Now that it has conquered the world for them, as it was created to do, it can go.
10. Could the Euro die?
An influential article that corrected the false notion that the Euro would fail because ‘all fiat currencies eventually fail’ kind of nonsense that was still quite prevalent in the Alternative Media at the time. It makes the case that the Euro would live through the crisis, simply because it’s the Money Power’s pet project en route to World Currency. Of course this is not set in stone, the Money Power can fail. But should it do so, it would be a devastating defeat for them. Their entire political capital is behind the Euro and this should be of course part of the equation in our analysis.
It was posted both at Activist Post (for which it was written) and on infowars.com In the months after it I noticed a distinctly different tone of voice in infowars’ Euro analysis, taking this issue into account. I later did a better version for Makow: The Battle for Europe: will the people or the Euro survive?
