The ultimate result of shielding man from the effects of folly is to people the world with fools

The Way the World Operates

While Americans are being brainwashed by TV and presidential rhetoric to become mindless cult followers of jingoistic militarism, the movers and shakers are making their billions. Some of them even give strong clues as to what's really going on.

Catherine Austin Fitts, a managing director of the Wall Street investment bank Dillon Read, raised more than $100,000 in 1988 for the Bush Presidential Campaign. Her boss at Dillon Read, Nicholas Brady, a Bush confidant, was appointed Secretary of the Treasury in the Bush administration. Fitts was appointed Assistant Secretary at HUD.

In 1999, in numerous radio and print interviews, Fitts connected the dots as to what's happening in the world:

"California, Florida, Texas and New York are, far and away, the states where most illegal drugs enter the United States."
"California, Florida, Texas and New York are also the states responsible for laundering most of the $200-250 billion dollars of drug money that pass through the U.S. economy and banking system every year."

"Eighty per cent of all Presidential campaign contributions come from California, Florida, Texas and New York."

So we can see that since the Bushes control Texas and Florida, the Democratic Party and the Clintons and other party leaders desperately need to control New York and California.

Carl Levin (D-Mich.) has documented that 300 billion dollars a year in drug money moves through the US banking system. $300 billion laundered results in $1.8 trillion dollars per year in U.S. cash transactions resulting from the drug trade. No wonder all the largest corporations are in the money-laundering business--along with whatever else they do.

We Must Change the Present System Before It Destroys Everything

The present system is based on international criminal activity as the business paradigm, with collaboration between governments, multinational corporations, and mafias. This system will collapse unless the economic model is turned upside down--so that it becomes profitable to engage in legitimate enterprises. The present crime-based international system--with its dependence on drug capital--can only be sustained ultimately by a police state.

New "war on terrorism" and "law and order" programs involving the Department of Justice and HUD, such as Project "Safe Streets," "Weed and Seed," and the almost hysterical "Uniting and Strengthening America (USA) Act," butcher the Constitution and are harbingers of an already emerging police state. The Congress, the Supreme Court, and the press fail to condemn the current Bush administration's onslaught against constitutional rights. Bush/Ashcroft defenders claim that secret trials for any person deemed to be a terrorist are legal. The earlier congressional and White House investigations into the CIA drug connection also demonstrate the heedless arrogance and blatant criminality of.

There is no such thing, at this date of the world's history, in America, as an independent press. You know it and I know it. The business of the Journalist is to destroy truth; To lie outright; To pervert; To vilify; To fawn at the feet of mammon, and to sell his country and his race for his daily bread. You know it and I know it and what folly is this toasting an independent press? We are the tools and vassals for rich men behind the scenes. We are the jumping jacks, they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities and or lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes. That there are men in all countries who get their living by war, and by keeping up the quarrels of nations, is as shocking as it is true; but when those who are concerned in the government of a country, make it their study to sow discord, and cultivate prejudices between nations, it becomes the more unpardonable.
