Switzerland: Satan or Saint?

Switzerland plays a very interesting role in world affairs yet I have never heard any of the history of or reason behind the following...

Swiss Guards protect the Pope.

The Swiss Banks protect the world elites money.

The Swiss are always "neutral" in war.

The Swiss founded the Red Cross and is the home for a very large number of international organizations.

What's the deal here? Is there more to this story??

Or is their benevolence genuine?

been there, done that?

historically speaking, the swiss were the WORLD SUPER POWER of the day..around the turn of the 1800's

I would like a second citizenship in Switzerland.

But I'm sure it's very difficult to do.

also, the BIS Bank of International Settlements is in Basel

and it has its own jurisdiction and guards.

They are Both Satan and Saint

The Swiss are a fairly complicated society. They have Socialists and Libertarians alike, but I can say from experience that their Socialism (Central Planning) is primarily held to the Canton. A Canton is basically a County in size and population, but has one key Difference, they are SOVEREIGN States in the Confederation Helvatia.

They are a Confederation of States with the ability to Secede if they choose. The French Cantons were threatening to leave the Confederation in 1993 while I was there. There was no talk of War or hatred, the French Cantons seemed to want to join the EU and the German, Italian, and Mountain Cantons didn't.

Sure, I heard what a HUGE mistake the French Cantons were making, but those who I spoke to about it were more like "Good Luck Buddy" and had a little laugh.

They are also the Heart of the Central Banking Empire. When I asked about the Banks, which were known to Launder Money and Absorb Deposits of Arrested or Deceased People, no one liked to talk about it. It was viewed as "bad" but not so bad to raise flags themselves. There was some reform around those areas at the time I was there, but Luxemburg started getting more "Gray" Deposits as they were known, so it was somewhat overlooked to re-attract business (Deposits).

While they live as Individual Sovereigns for the most part, they look the other way when others are prevented from doing so. Check out their Constitution, it was largely based on Jeffersonian ideology in the 1830's (First Ratification). Note it comes from a Constitutional Convention (Con Con)in 1998 http://www.admin.ch/ch/e/rs/1/101.en.pdf

Mark of the Beast, The Church, & Honest Money

Bear with me for a minute, but it does indirectly tie into this subject. Like all nations, the Swiss are controlled by the Accuser of Man, but have primarily adhered to the saintly requirement for honest money.

Now, why in the world does the Christian church allow a debt-based currency to rule their financial affairs? How can the Christian church complain about the Mark of the Beast (simply a very PUBLIC and advanced form of BIOMETRIC) when it has allowed a cruder form of biometric as part of its financial affairs for at least a hundred years, namely a personal signature on a check? Until the Christian church outlaws ALL forms of biometrics, the leadership certainly can't complain about the Mark of the Beast nor are those leaders doing God's will. Gold and silver should be IMMEDIATELY required for ALL transactions within the Christian church. In fact, are there ANY Christian churches which actually DEMAND their financial affairs be conducted in gold and silver? Why hasn't the Christian church continually raised this subject in both political circles and the media? The leadership of the Christian churches better not complain to me about the Mark of the Beast when they already allow a cruder form of the mark, i.e. a personal signature, and conduct their affairs with dishonest (devalued) money. Christian churches actually DOING the will of God should be LEADING the fight to restore an honest and anonymous currency.

The Christian churches need to learn a lesson from the Swiss.

Switzerland has always seemed

Switzerland has always seemed (to me at least) to be the closest model we have to a libertarian country. High economic and personal freedoms, a commodity-based currency, balanced budget, low income taxes...And as a result they are one of the richest countries in the world, and have very low inequality (their GINI coefficient is 33.7, ours is 45). The reason they hold the world elites money is just b/c of low taxes. So capital flows in from all over the world, and lots of it. Not necessarily a bad thing.

So to answer your question, "is their benevolence genuine?" I'm not gonna group an entire country into one category but they seem over all to be a very peaceful and prosperous country. Maybe even a model we should try to follow.

Does anyone know anything

Does anyone know anything about Swiss Annuities? There is very little on the net about this subject. It seems like it would be a good investment strategy for diversification.

Good Luck Buying them

Many people have been Buying up Swiss Francs for the last several years, because it is so stable, and they are having to inflate their currency to because of it.

Swiss Annuities are paid in Swiss Francs, and they have strict Banking Laws that prevent the Bank from destroying their Savings and Means to trade so Inflation is watched extremely closely.

They are truly an Independent People and almost everyone is armed. A Bernanke or the like would never even dare to try what they have done here in the States. They take that $h!t seriously.

I lived there for a year

Banksters control the country.
My Swiss girlfriend told me "every building has a govt spy"...

Mind you:

10,000 folks demonstrated against the upcoming war against Iraq in autumn 2002 -- I was there -- could not believe so many people would come out to demonstrate in a city of only 132,000.

The country

That does not allow me to see my daughter.
Because it has faith in my Swiss girlfriend's words.

Guess what.
My ex-Swiss girlfriend works for the police now.

I saw on the wall in Bern (capital) words.

I'd

bet she's telling the truth, unlike you who has been proven to lie on several occasions. You can't even take care of yourself (as you're drunk right now), much less be responsible for a child. I'm sure she had good reason to protect the child.

But yeah, keep blaming everyone and everything else for your problems rather than take responsibility for anything. That seems to work well for your socialist self entitled mentality.

You're probably lying about her working for the police, just as you lie about anyone who disagrees with you being, "DHS,FBI,Neo-Nazis, Romney Operatives, Ohmamma supporters, demon possessed," etc.

here comes DP nazi

My ex works for the traffic police.

None of your business Austin boy!

If you continue your attacks on me/my name I will make sure
you get banned from this site.

You got into MN's good books -- that is nothing.
You think blowing smoke into MN's ass will help you?
Wrong.

Switzerland is the wealthiest per capita country in the world

They have some of the largest banks and insurance companies in the world, and do not invade or get invaded by staying out of other countries affairs and living off the gravy of the central banks and fractional reserve lending. Free money, great chocolate and peaceful life while the rest of the world crumbles around them. They have solved the civic unrest problem as no one but the wealthy can afford to live there.

Not really odd

for various reasons.

In regards to the Swiss Guards, they were originally mercenaries hired by the Vatican sometime in the Middle Ages, and it just became a tradition. They were well known for their effectiveness when the crap hit the fan.

Swiss banks - I would assume this has to do with taxes and/or their neutrality in wars.

Swiss neutrality - this is because every male citizen (maybe females, too) is required to serve in the military for two years, and afterwards keeps their service rifle; also, I believe they have a plan to have every bridge in the country blown up within 24 hours of an attack.

International organizations - once again, I would simply assume this is a coincidence, due to taxes, regulations, and/or their tradition of neutrality through strength.

So no, IMO, it's not that suspicious at all.

And don't forget they

And don't forget they invented swiss cheese, very disturbing indeed. I see it being used in sandwiches, everywhere

Swiss cheese? LOL!!!

I needed a good laugh.

chilling news indeed lol

keep your eyes peeled, there might be holes in their story too.

Seriously though...I'm just curious and wondered what others thought.

Does all this seem kinda odd

Does all this seem kinda odd to anyone else either?
