To live with honor and to resist corruption is something most find harder to do day by day. “Choosing Honor: An American Woman’s Search for God, Family, and Country in an Age of Corruption” is author Mary Ficalora’s own personal quest to resist the temptations of the modern world. Stating that most people, while not being perfectly good, are not necessarily corrupted by the world, “Choosing Honor” proffers an optimistic view that the world is still moral. A healthy dose of philosophy from a Christian perspective is mixed in, making for a fine treatise on clarity, right makes might, war, politics, and many other topics. Highly recommended for community library social issues collections.
In 2008 I rushed to publish Choosing Honor before the crash. I somehow thought so many people would read it. LOL If only. I believe Obama would have never gotten away with his Goldman Sachs deals. I like to believe. Sadly most people prefer to follow, safety is in numbers, they believe.
While the health crisis is improving and “ongoing vaccinations offer hope for a return to more normal conditions later this year,” Powell said, “the path of the economy continues to depend significantly on the course of the virus and the measures taken to control its spread.” Our current Money Power Chairman testified to the Senate today.
These words are innocuous taken at face value. I tend to be one that is always looking for a mask when it comes to the face of the Money Power. In this case, a chill runs down my spine at what is masked. In no small part this chill is enhanced by the fact that the Weimar Republic is being mentioned in far right monetary newsletters again. https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/bofa-hints-weimar-20-could-be-coming In light of the mid-century monetary military madness this Republic symbolizes and unleashed, the words, “The measures taken to control its spread,” take me to the darkest measures mankind is capable of. The virus induced social control measures will dictate the state of the economy says the man at the controls. Make no mistake Covid-19 is fulfilling the economic role of war, regardless if it is nature or mankind induced.
War economically reconfigures. Covid-19 has often been referred to as the great reset. https://www.weforum.org/great-reset/ We live in a fractal reality, our economy is a confidence game. Confidence is going to dictate how we act. And if we the people of the United States are going to have any hope of hanging onto the United States of America as intended by our founders we need to stay out of debt, bank in local community banks or credit unions and buy local, support small businesses. Corporations and “too big to fail banks” are parasites Thomas Jefferson and Alexander Hamilton clashed over this reality. Hamilton called Jefferson’s “people” a beast that needed to be harnessed. Early last century this harness was re-coined as a “cross of gold.” Fiat money will flow in the coming year, it is up to us to direct it into the directions we want to see thrive in our communities. Money is our magic wand, invest wisely. If we do we can control the “popsicle index” of our lives. https://home.solari.com/the-popsicle-index/
Uncanny use of Middle Eastern headgear on the Money Power’s heads in this historical political cartoon. Some things never change, they just become even more entrenched.
Ellen Brown’s book, The Web of Debt, was first published around the same time as Choosing Honor. I have long admired her work to reveal the truth of the money power in the United States and the world. In an article published today, links below, she nails what the people of the world are up against if we are to gain personal sovereignty. Kudos to Ellen Brown for yet again succinctly revealing the money power at work in the world today. http://www.alternet.org/economy/its-depressing-true-bankers-run-show
