Thanks Robert Wink

And a bunch of good wishes to you for a great 2019 Laughing

Yep, it's been some year.

Y'know the treeincarnation perspective I've developed
tells me this: eternal human spirits know only change.
Like growing pains and birth, change can hurt.

Yet, as you say: "this thing called life sure goes on!". Exclamation

“Every society in history for the last 4,000 years has found that the debts
grow more rapidly than people can pay,” he says. “The problem is a small
oligarchy of 10 percent of the population at the top to whom all of these net
debts are owed to. You want to annual the debts to the top 10 percent.

That’s what they’re not going to do. The oligarchy is running things. They
would rather annul the bottom 90 percent right to live than to annul the
money that’s due to them. They would rather strip the planet and shrink
the population and be paid rather than give up their claims.

That’s the political fight of the 21st century.”

Who does that refer to?. Who is stopping the bottom 90 percent right to live?.

I dont know how Hudson can compare the capitalist system we live, and prosper in today to the system ancient rome had.

Whats the alternative?. Socialism?, maybe give Marxism another twirl...good luck with that.

Capitalism? Has it ever been tried? What I see now are statist systems of government-protected (at gunpoint) monopolies starting with the Fed/ECB/IMF, etc., the narco cartel, etc. etc etc.

BTW, Christian and other scriptures state that we(nations) owe no re- payment to usurers.
(usury = the lending of money at interest)
The real problem is governments being allowed to borrow money at interest from private 'lenders' and those same lenders appointing their stooges as 'public servants' to perpetuate the crimes.

From what I have gathered the so-called "dark ages" were actually quite prosperous because usury was strictly forbidden.

I dont see what good it does anyone to complain about a system they take part in, and do well out of.

Im pretty tired as well of hearing how we are all oppressed by a so called cabal of white patriarchal hierarchy thinking how best to keep everyone under them down, and making everyones life miserable.

Capitalism is not perfect, and there will always be disenfranchised people in any system, but whats the alternative?. We are at the moment the most prosperous we have ever been in our history.

I was not around in other historical eras, nor were you I presume,,,,,,,so there is no way to really know if we are better or worse off.

Because history is mostly bunk.

Stalins gulags, Hilters concentration camps, and Maos china were very recent in our history, and resulted in over a 100 million + deaths. I think its safe to say under those regimes/systems people were worse off.

To say history is bunk in regards to that makes light of it, and is incredibly disingenuous.

I know what is bunk. The oppressed oppressor narrative that we are all victims living under a tyrannical Oligarchy. That just leaves people feeling victimized bitter, and resentful. I dont want to live my life like that.

If you've been following the Invasion of the Baby Snatchers topic, then
you know that an official inquiry was due to report in weeks about the
treatment of unwed mothers in religious institutions in Ireland.

The Government are just about to delay the report - for a year!





Been firefighting on that issue when I should have been
doing new year vids for BFN topics, but I will shortly. Wink

2019 is gonna be a hot one.
