The people who

control the amount of money in circulation and in which direction it flows are those who determine world order.

I dissent.

He glorifies Keynes! Did you all miss that, or did you catch it and just decide to give him a free pass? Perkins and RT, including the host, Abby, both have a very leftist bent. Promoting the progressive agenda, occupy, Keynes, Global Corporate Citizenship, etc. People like this will suck you in with some truth (economic hitmen on behalf of corporations sucking 3rd world countries into loans they can't repay to gobble up their resources, etc.), and then hit you with socialist solutions that led us into the mess we are in to begin with!

Come on DP'ers! You of all people are expected to be smart enough to see their bait and switch tactics, because if you can't, then your arguments will not convince others to join us in our fight for liberty.

I know you're smarter, better informed, and more intelligent than RT, who sometimes has some good material, but you have to be careful and be able to take from it the useful parts and leave the socialist tripe behind. Please do not buy into their every word, and employ discernment.

Thank you for reading and I hope you do not mind my dissent.

I noticed that too, however

There was NO PRAISE for the Keynesian model. He simply said that's what they were teaching when he was in school in the 70s.

Calm down and watch it again.

Even if he did, does that make everything else he said of no value or hold no truth?

I don't need to, but you should re-read my post

"RT, who sometimes has some good material,"

Also I would like to recommend the following for your continued learning.

LOL

"I don't need to watch again, but you need to re-read my post."

I see this is one sided on your part. I simply point out that what you started your "dissent" with was a false assumption.

I did make a mistake though, he said it was taught in the late 60s, not 70s. That's when the new form of Keynes came to be.

I'm well aware RT has its biases. I'm well informed, thank you.

"We are not human beings having a spiritual experience; we are spiritual beings having a human experience"—Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

Old Keynes, new Keynes,

..It's still Keynes, and your welcome :)

My original post wasn't intended as an attack on you, so please don't take it personally. After seeing the same patterns over and over again, it gets tiring. Over the years here on the DP I often see people here fall into a bait and switch trap. Zeitgeist is a perfect example. Great material on the military industrial complex, banksters, fiat money, etc., only to propose a socialist utopia Venus Project as the solution where robots wipe our asses. And I'm supposed to call people who buy it "awake"? No, I don't think so. The same goes for occupy as far as I am concerned.

In closing, that is why I was abrasive, and that was my mistake.

Ok sure, Keynes is Keynes is Keynes

It sucks no matter what version it is. I can settle on that. Nothing taken personally. I posted so I'm open to discussion.

Regarding the bait switch trap, I can see that as being the case in many instances for sure but I think it's a bit of something else. Yes, I agree that there is great material on the MIC, banking, etc., but we're in this sort of limbo space of not really knowing where to start. I think that there are still many dots to connect before some real action can be taken. We can't talk about a monetary-free society that's hardwired for consumerism. But I think there is great value in some sort of vision, utopian or not. It's a lack of imagination that really keeps us from moving forward. Feels like we're stuck in an old rerun.

"Awake" is a very broad term and I hardly hear it applied the same way consistently. I think it's a general awareness that things can and should be different. If anyone's got some imaginative ideas of how, I'm open to hearing it. Minus the ass-wiping robots. Haha! I'm just glad people are talking even if it doesn't go anywhere right away. We all need to connect on a greater level so we can figure out what to do about our common issues. Awake or not, we're all in this.

"We are not human beings having a spiritual experience; we are spiritual beings having a human experience"—Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

I agree.

Ron Paul has often pointed out that we can work with people on specific issues where we agree, without compromising our core principals. Example: Rand Paul recently worked with Dianne Fienstien to put in place protections into the 2013 NDAA to protect American citizens from being arbitrarily rounded up and held without charge or trial. Ultimately those protections were removed in committee unfortunately, but he tried. Is he going to work with Fienstien on banning semi-auto defense weapons? Hell no!

Socialists often correctly point out what the problems are regarding corporate control over our government, unfortunately their solutions were developed in think tanks staffed and funded by those same corporations :/ Controlled opposition.

Thank you! I was starting to

Thank you! I was starting to freak out a little. I made it to the 9:00 mark and wrote a negative comment but then thought I better watch the rest. It didn't get any better.

Mysterious Mr Moto (Peter Lorre) silver screen

Mysterious Mr Moto, (1938. Peter Lorre) per protocol announces himself at Scotland Yard, London. 3 min. film clip.

Time
4:10 Mr Moto handles silver coin in lobby
5:40 The League of Assassins
5:00 Scotland Yard interview

May I suggest for those interested in such a sordid tale, watch the whole film reel. Watch how the dragnet is cast.

Brief Synopsis: Mysterious Mr Moto:
Disguised as Ito Matsuka, Japanese murderer... Kentaro Moto, an agent of the International Police, leads Paul Brissac, a Frenchman, in an escape from Devil's Island. In London, Moto becomes a houseboy for Brissac, a member of a group of hired killers of diplomats and economic leaders, which the newspapers have dubbed "The League of Assassins." Moto is trying to learn the identity of the group's leader and the reason that they are in London. Meanwhile, Prague steel king Anton Darvak, a pacifist, has refused to sell to armament manufacturers a formula for a new type of steel.

Intelligent interview.

He mentioned that the $$$ lobbyist now writes the laws, not the corporatist. We listen to the tale of greed for profit gone mad, as we already knew. He acknowledges that people are waking up to the empire building corporations. Perhaps there is hope for an end to the madness.

He lost me at the 7:50 mark

He lost me at the 7:50 mark when he started praising "Keynesian capitalism".

I paused at that point also.

He seems to differentiate by saying it used to be "for the people" and became "for profit". I am still with Ron Paul on Keynesian capitalism.

Youngens Hearken Back to What They See as Peaceful Times.

Oldens hearken back, best they can, to what they see as peaceful times. Just different times. I would choose a time before Teddy Roosevelt's adventures in the Spanish American War. But, that is just me.

Perhaps someone would like to explain.

How is telling you what they were teaching in the 70s "Praise"?

"We are not human beings having a spiritual experience; we are spiritual beings having a human experience"—Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

I do believe there is more than hope.

There are too many instruments of Light available to be used to shine upon the shadows. They can only exist in illusionary "non-existence" but we see more and more exposed each day. Sure, we'll get some bit of distraction thrown out into the mainstream for the lemmings to "oooh" and "ahhh" at, but those awake see through it all now. It's getting a bit embarrassing how obvious it is.

"We are not human beings having a spiritual experience; we are spiritual beings having a human experience"—Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

Yes.

"It's getting a bit embarrassing how obvious it is." And many voices are beginning to speak out.

Mysterious Mr Moto (1938. Peter Lorre) silver screen interview

See Mr Moto interview with Scotland Yard in London.

1938. Politics surrounding Mr Moto, Imperial Agent, Japan:
While Mr Moto is a devoted servant of the Emperor, he is often at odds with the Japanese military. He believes in the manifest destiny of the Japanese to expand into China. Unlike the military, he wants to achieve this slowly and carefully. Millicent Bell in her biography of John P. Marquand notes how this may have impacted the audience:

    There is political significance, too, in the calculated appeal to American readers of the ever resourceful Mr. Moto, the representative of Eastern subtlety combined with Western efficiency, who emerges as a gentleman of wit and charm. Up to 1939 it must have seemed possible to some that Japan would be moderate and reasonable in its expansion in the Far East – that the Mr. Motos would defeat the Japanese military fanatics. Pearl Harbor, of course, put an end to American neutralism as well as hopes of Japanese moderation – but not before Marquand's Moto series had become one of the most popular fictions ever to be run in an American magazine.

I like how he explained

how they keep things hidden from everyday view. Quiet armies of vulture capitalists taking over businesses, companies, corporations, and indebting/enslaving whole countries. Food stamps so you don't see soup and bread lines, the make-believe worthless dross we call money - The whole thing reminds me of the underground network under Disneyland, they can't have their ugly machinery showing, it would break the matrix.
