hi all, recently came across a new video interview from a few months ago from a dutch banker named Ronald Bernard.[a1][a2] heard about it but didnt get to it/ watch it until 2 nites ago. his information is incredible, sensational, critical, and incendiary. some will label it "conspiracy theory" others would label it "suppressed/ censored truth". the interview went viral with over 20M hits but there are presumably many who didnt watch the whole thing. but 20M views is a nevertheless a fantastic breakthrough of epic proportions. am including it here. hope that many more watch this video, urge you to watch it. one might also say its a rosetta stone for understanding our reality. almost never embed videos but this one really deserves it...
the (very complex) topic is "predatory capitalism". an uncomfortable/ "inconvenient" thought/ subject (to borrow from Gores vocabulary). expert biologists understand the idea of predators and also "superpredators" at the top of food chains. our economic system has strong parallels to ecosystems but that concept is blurry for most people and probably intentionally suppressed in our educational system. (apparently) there exist economic superpredators. the concept is also closely tied with "economic warfare". these predator "economic organisms" are "stronger than governments" and seem to be built out of what might be called "multi-corporations" and international banks.
and then theres the natural question, what do the predators consume? hint, to borrow a probably old expression also voiced by warren buffet about playing poker/ gambling, "if you dont know who the sucker is ("at the table"), YOU'RE IT!"
these predators are extremely well versed in the ancient "art of war" in the Sun-Tzu sense but applied in the economic sphere. there is also a strong Machiavellian component/ undercurrent. it would be an understatement to call them highly dangerous and lethal. correspondingly Bernard says hes basically lucky to be alive.
there is also a lot of analogy to a global cancer that is crosscutting against different national boundaries, institutions, governments. the global immune system of corruption/ criminal-fighting cannot yet fully "recognize" this large entity which is still largely invisible to it. another basic analogy is to a very powerful but extremely concealed mafia that has also infiltrated governments.
its scope might be understood in that the recent sensational "panama papers" leak are like a toy version of the real (hidden/ concealed) thing.
started to research this subj myself in earnest about 2 decades ago. a particular thread/ aspect/ facet/ dimension. found some excellent refs. yet couldnt believe how obscure the subject is.
we live in a sort of intellectual/ psychological prison sometimes. it has invisible bars. its a bit like an invisible electric fence for dogs. its also known as "consensus reality". its held in place with negative human attributes of which there are no shortage of, such as greed, violence, ignorance. nobody can honestly deny that those are in short supply in the world we live in. (which reminds me of an old joke by WC fields about a "supposed" prostitute: "we have established what you are, we are only haggling about price.") but paradoxically, denial is also one of the key negative attributes holding the prison in place.
at the time, thought some future shift could be possible. believe such a shift is underway but moving very slowly. however, sometimes the earth moves slowly or rapidly. could there ever be a psychological earthquake in this area? such earthquakes have happened in the past. they are rare but not impossible. there are many forces pushing in two directions: one towards inertia and the other towards shifting ("paradigms")/ enlightenment. ie/ aka what happens when irresistible force meets immovable obj?
have blogged about some of this in the past, over the years. bits and pieces here and there.
the topic took esp urgency with the last US-world crash in 2008. there was some major shifting at the time, but looks like again the shock was absorbed by invisible "shock absorbers".
below is a collection of key links/ pointers collected over 2 decades. the picture/ information has become more coherent, detailed, complete in that time. the trend continues. the combined/ interconnected information ("connecting the dots") paints a particular picture of reality that few will be able to grasp, and there would likely be much kneejerk scoffing on even bits and pieces of it. but my feeling after many years of research is that it is razor-sharp accurate. its the shadow side of humanity that includes some very dark stuff. but the truth is out there, and will set you free.
entire books could be written on this stuff, and entire books have.[b] there are literally thousands of pages written on the subj. there are documentaries, and a breakthrough movie in 2015 starring Sandra Bullock had oscar buzz.[a22] the media didnt really play up or cover the banking angle much, but the point is that millions saw it. its another case of the elephant (or a "FEARSOME/ VIOLENT BEAST") and the blind men, but in this case all of humanity composes both aspects of the elephant and the blind men.
this invisible prison we live in is probably very ancient (also as Bernard indicates/ concludes), but its also a staggering thought that its held in place with our own thoughts. our thoughts are changeable. the prison is escapable. it looks like a coin toss whether it will fall in my remaining life. if it did, it would be a victory of centuries. there are both encouraging and discouraging signs. time will tell. we will see. intend to post more on the subj as more time goes by.
