Austrianism is Dying! Truthers Unite!
It transpires that leading Libertarian websites have been catastrophically hemorrhaging visitors over the last 18 months. Gold buggery is definitely on the wane and this means that the classical enemy of Populist Monetary Reform may be on the way out. The Goldites have been confusing the Populists for 150 years.
This is the chance of an era to find common ground for a widely supported Monetary Reform Movement.
Here are two stunning Alexa graphs. Lewrockwell.com:
Gary North is also down from about 30,000 to 60,000.
Surely Lew Rockwell’s site and Mises.org are at the heart of Libertarian agitation. They showed solid growth up to late 2011 when they started bleeding visitors. It must be remembered that this was during the Paul campaign, that could have seen the Goldites take over the Republican party, should Paul have resisted Diebold manipulation.
Such a disastrous turn of events has profound implications. Quite clearly the Powers that Be had plans for Libertarianism. As we have been discussing at length, the whole thing was built up over decades and co-opted the Truth Movement in the 2008 and 2012 elections.
Over the last year we have seen clear indications that Libertarianism was mainstreaming. But this is not really important. People still stuck in the Republican-Democrat dichotomy will believe anything, what matters is that Austrian Economics within the Truth Movement has more or less ended as a force. The Truth Movement is the real opposition and the bankers are losing the battle for their mind, also in terms of economics.
Confirmation of this is a recent bizarre rant by North. In a confused diatribe, using the word ‘crackpot’ at least 20 times, he first blathers on endlessly about Keynes being an anti-semite sodomite crackpot (doesn’t Gary know John Keynes was into young boys too?) and then completely loses it in describing American Populism. Said he: “It is, lo and behold, the Rothschilds. In other words, it’s them Jews. It’s them Jews again. It’s always them Jews. Them Jews is everywhere. Them Jews is everything bad. Them Jews is rich. Them Jews. Them Jews. Them Jews. Get them Jews!”
It’s hard to think of a more pathetic example of auto-combustion.
Few still believe that Gold will stop the bankers. Gold is deflationary, which would worsen an already grim scenario and does nothing to end Usury. America itself is in the absolute worst of positions to go Gold because nobody has any, the Federal Reserve least of all.
Rand Paul recently suggested a Gold commission, but without his father he is useless in the Truth Movement. The only one really plugging him is Alex Jones, who was also instrumental in giving Ron ‘Arabs did 9/11’ Paul the platform he needed. But just about everybody has been distancing himself from Jones, especially the last few months saw a flurry of people calling him out for many different reasons. Jones is regularly being slaughtered by his own feedbackers.
The other day hard-core Zionist Rand Paul was calling for war in Syria. Claiming Obama only wanted to fight Assad to a stalemate our man brazenly came forward: ‘I’ve told them I’m not sending my kids or your kids or any American soldiers to fight for stalemate. When we fight, we fight to win, we fight for American principles, we fight for the American flag and we come home after we win.’
What does it all mean?
Austrianism was and always has been the Money Power’s tool to subvert American Populism all throughout the 20th century right up to today. Ed Griffin’s ‘the Creature of Jekyll Island’ is just the perfect example of how they steamroll any platform for monetary reform by confusing the uninitiated. With the decline of Gold buggery we see a vacuum right at the heart of the Truth Movement.
The international implications of this trend are hard to fathom. As we know Austrianism fits well with the rise of the Gold backed Yuan. The Euro also was designed to be backed by Gold. Ron Paul never intended to win the elections and Lew Rockwell, right after Paul’s legendary backstabbing, claimed he was only there to educate the masses on the wonders of Austrian Economics. So it’s not too clear tPtB want a Gold Standard for America, or perhaps he was just too early.
The Truth Movement is the natural heir of the great American Populists who fought for plentiful money ever since the Civil War. But what is the Truth Movement? The great thing is: nobody knows. It’s one big mess and everybody associated with it has his or her own particular perspective. But there does seem to be a certain loose consensus. 9/11 Truth of course. The idea that the world is run by some bankers (Rothschild & Co), that they are trying to establish World Government and that they use wars to create the chaos they need to get there. It despises Zionism and Imperialism. It is more spiritual than religious.
Bankers have bought the entire world by offering bookkeeping services and slapping usury on those with debit accounts. This is called banking and it’s the mother of all hoaxes. It’s the kernel of the New World Order. They brought all Nations and all Governments to their knees and chained us all to interest-slavery with the only commodity that mankind can create in infinite amounts with the stroke of a pen.
If the results would not have been so utterly excruciating for untold billions of people, it would have been funny.
The answer is clear: we desperately need monetary reform. With the Gold meme in decline, more serious proposals are finding a platform. And there are many. There is the American Monetary Institute run by Zarlenga. They managed to get Kucinich on board, who launched HR2990 in Congress. Shortly thereafter he lost his seat, but this was quite a feat nonetheless.
There are the Hamiltonians/Larouchians, for instance the United Front Against Austerity. Ellen Brown’s Public Banking is also heavily influenced by Hamiltonian thinking.
These proposals certainly are very American and would go a long way. They would end the depression and interest payments by the State.
But they do not solve interest-slavery for the common man. He would still have to go to a bank to pay $300k interest on a $200k mortgage. These proposals (with the exception of Public Banking, which can be easily done on City level) also tend to centralize power in Washington and personally I’d like to see more decentralization to the States and local communities.
There are also the interest-free crediters. Mathematically Perfected Economy is one example. Hour money another. Thomas Greco is big on Mutual Credit clearing. These proposals are very strong because of their principled stance against Usury, which is absolutely key.
There are also the Europeans, people like Margrit Kennedy and Bernard Lietaer, who are strongly anti-usury, anti hoarding (of money) and promote regional/complementary currencies.
There are also the proposals that I would loosely categorize as the ‘Chicago Plan’. The AMI is quite close to it. Bill Still has been offering solutions in that direction. Positive Money comes to mind. A weakness of these proposals is full-reserve banking.
And let’s not forget Social Credit, which remains a force.
With Austrianism facing decimation, a united Monetary Reform platform seems more possible than ever.
Sound money is
2. Stable, no boom/bust cycle, which is a result of tampering with the volume of money
3. Decentralized in the sense that local communities and economies have access to cheap credit
The current proposals as discussed show great promise but the finishing touch is lacking. We need a wide scale debate. This will enhance both the proposals and the public interest and understanding.
Banking is One and those that own it are the Money Power. As Michael Hoffman put it: ‘if there is a greater evil than the Money Power, than the Bible is lying……To say that the Money Power is at the very top of the evils that we need to work against basically overwhelms people. They want something else to fight…….Freedom from interest on money, is essentially the battle for freedom from the Money Power……We reject the weaponization of the love of money as it is represented by interest on loans of money!!’
This is, and remains, the challenge for both the Truth Movement and the Human Race.
