“None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.”
– Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
A cliché, and yet so pertinent. So many people think that the struggle against the New World Order is about not becoming their slaves.
But we ARE already their slaves!
by Anthony Migchels — (henrymakow.com)
The essence of Slavery is that someone else controls the value of our production.
Under Capitalism, people depending on a wage (the 90/99%), typically consume only about 10% of the value of their own production. The entire System is geared to sucking up our production with unearned income: Usury, Landlordism, Speculation, high prices of Monopoly.
In Capitalism, this was achieved by first driving the common people off their ancestral lands by systematically destroying the abundant money systems of the medieval era by forcing Gold Standards everywhere.
This caused a deflation that first savaged the countryside.
In this way, the People lost their means of independence and were forced to work for others for a living, in the cities. Instead of being independent farmers and craftsmen, they were demoted to wage slavery.
