Thanks for the reminder.

What I have said however is not that the Rothschilds themselves control the world, that is something you have read into the comment you have copied into your post. The central banking network is often referred to as the Rothschild central banking network since they have been instrumental in its formation although not in its early foundations. However they discovered very early on in their family history that lending to governments was the most profitable line of business to be in and from all accounts they came to dominate that business. I added the Rockelfellers as they are allies of the Rothschilds and are joined with them, inter alia, in the JP Morgan Chase bank.

However I do not believe that the Rothschilds have the degree of absolute control and unimaginable wealth that many do ascribe to them. That I believe is a modern myth that may well be encouraged by or may even originate with the parties in question. They and other members of the cabal exercise control I believe through their many foundations and interlocking corporate structures that are very difficult to penetrate and it is very unlikely that one could do so through a search of public documents. Ownership in any event is less important to them than influence and control.

Your second paragraph is a cut and paste from my reply to The Granger without quotation marks. This is known as plagiarism. I will gladly excuse you for the oversight and I mean that, it is not intended as a "snide" remark. Imitation as they say is the sincerest form of flattery. As I indicated above, electronic communications are fraught with pitfalls.

The word you ought to have used in your first sentence is "patronized" rather than "patronizing". You do not like being patronised and I can understand that. However if you are referring to the cut and paste paragraph referred to above then you are mistaken. That reply was addressed to The Granger and was in the context of a long discussion with her. You have taken up an offence for another person and that usually ends badly.

So far as we are concerned in our discussions you have not offered any opinions of your own as far as I can recall. Your contribution has been limited to challenging me to produce more of my own and I have complied as far as I could and have referred you to other posts of mine that would have provided you with more details of my thinking.

In that regard, your response to my answers to the questions I have asked myself, that I shared with you, tells me that you did not actually read what I said or did not understand it. This I suspect is probably true of most of my posts which do tend to be rather heavy going and demand a degree of attention and comprehension that is lacking today in our "sound bite" cultures.

No doubt you could answer these questions since I believe most of the people who contribute to this website have opinions on these issues. Opinions however should be founded on facts and sound reasoning and not all opinions are equal. This is where The Granger fell alarmingly short and why she frustrated so many people, I believe. This is why we have debates, to test the validity and truth of our opinions. There appears to be a growing belief that opinions may be based on nothing more than personal fancy, emotional attachment to certain ideas and baseless imagination. This is a dangerous development and does not bode well for the future of human communications. It is nevertheless a symptom of the growing tendency towards thoughtlessness which is especially prevalent in the internet environment, with some notable exceptions here at the Daily Paul.

I must say that our exchanges have been somewhat arid since you appear to have taken personal offence at my opinions, that are many and varied, and have offered none of your own. This suggests that these opinions of mine are disturbing, painfully, some deeply held conviction, the kind of thing I call an idol of the heart. We all have them and they need to be dealt with but that is a very personal exercise with which I wish you well.

"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)
