Fall of the Republic

There is an interesting video produced by Alex Jones called "Fall of the Republic", which in my view merits watching, and is available for free here.

Though I don't agree with everything in the video, and think certain things are overly sensationalist, the main points of the video are sound.

One of the amusing things is in the beginning is that one of the contributors attributes to America the concept of the separation of powers, limited government and the establishment of government in such a way that it serves a common good. This idea actually comes from St. Robert Bellarmine, whose political treatises never left Thomas Jefferson's desk.

Nevertheless, they trace the work of globalism and the current globalist banking industry in creating the crises that grips us presently. The contributors to this documentary compare it to oligarchy, and demonstrate how the international elite function by that and force various policies to erode the rights of the general population.

The video also exposes the establishment of a world governing body of scientists who enforce the state doctrine of population control, family planning, social engineering and climate change.

The significance of global warming doctrine is that by identifying carbon dioxide as the evil which is "destroying the planet", the world governing body will have the right to tax you and me for the right to breathe. This is essential to breaking down sovereignty and self government, which are so necessary to defending a society from control by an external force.

It also shows us many examples of how a police state is on the verge of being created, and (in my opinion) strongly makes the case for a hidden hand controlling Obama by demonstrating the numerous flip flops from his campaign promises of transparency and change and the reality of continuation of Bush policy, and has nothing at all to do with change.

The movie also has the benefit of not being partisan with respect to right and left, taking aim at both Obama and Bush and demonstrating continuity of Obama and Bush's administrations. In reality of course (as it seems to me), there is total continuity of government since 1988.

The film, bringing us several contributors in the form of economists, climate scientists, researchers and bloggers, really hits the nail on the head of the present crisis. It is also aided by numerous video clips of the elites themselves telling us from their own mouths that accountability, sovereignty and freedom do not matter.

Where the movie fails in my view, is in the concluding half hour they describe the work of the global financial elite as trying to destroy capitalism. What they fail to note is that it is the logical and necessary conclusion of capitalism. The instabilities of capitalism are only solvable, those who have can only make certain they continue to have if they turn modern economies into a slave state. The world the film attempts to show us was predicted by Hilaire Belloc nearly 100 years ago in his work "The Servile State", which he makes the case that capitalism must ultimately end in the restoration of slavery.

Another shortcoming (in my view) of the film is that they do not spend enough time explaining the mechanisms of banking. They spend some time talking about derivatives, and the breakdown of regulation with respect to them, but they do not spend enough time talking about banking either in its proper role or its abuse which is at the heart of today's problems.

The proper function of a bank is to put capital into the community. If x number of people have invested in a bank, and they find (as has always been the case) that people need only 10% of their money at a time, they make an investment on some kind of productive enterprise. This gains the bank a profit, and it was on a productive loan for something say such as mining or manufacturing. The fee they charge for the use of their money is just, it is a percentage of the profit earned with their productive loan. In that sense their money was capital, without which the productive venture could not have worked, and thus the bank has infused capital into the community.

Banking today by contrast takes capital out of the community, and then demands more from the government when they run out of money.

Another of the film's flaws is they act as if America is now the last country standing in the way of the global elite. There are many other countries with many members of their populace just as alarmed as we are, albeit they might be a little less organized and noted than resistance in this country.

Nevertheless, in spite of these and other shortcomings or its Amero-centric outlook, "Fall of the Republic" is an important movie with an important message, our allegiance ought not be to democrats and republicans, neither to 3rd parties, but to a unifying principle of society guaranteeing our freedom and sovereignty, which as Americans is the constitution and the bill of rights. Even as a monarchist I can take that over the new order that is coming.

Fall of Republic is the best of Alex Jones' productions but of course I'm bias being essentially a Producerist/Tarpleyite.

On the problem of the lack of detail on the mechanics of Banking there several new films that help greatly on this issue.

I think that "Money as Debt II" is the best thing out there and the folks produced that giant 4+ hour documentary "The Money Masters" are going to release a new 2 hours film in called "the Secret of Oz" about history of banking using history behind the famous populist children book "the Wizard of Oz" to set the context.

I've sent John an email about Money as Debt II and you can find the film here at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_doYllBk5No

Thanks Athanasius. Lord Christopher Monckton gives a wonderful 90 min lecture on the untruth of man made Global Warming here...

I just want to be on record as rejecting Alex Jones and all his works. The site is a haven for holocaust deniers, gold bugs, miracle cures, climate deniers, and other tin-foil hat conspiracies. Much of the film is pure nonsense.

That being said, some things he does get right. We do have only a dark simulacrum of democracy, and debt money controls the economy. But if there is a conspiracy, I think Jones is part of it; the real point of this film is that there should be no restrictions on the right of multi-nationals to use the natural world as a private garbage dump. In economic terms, this is called an "externality," a subsidy from the general health and welfare to the industrialists.

Many are rightly suspicious of the environmental movement because so many population-control people are associated with it. This is certainly a valid objection. However, the problem is not too many people, but too many of the sort of people (about 1/5th of the world's population) who never have enough, no matter how much they have.

I close with a quote from an early environmentalist and, like me, a pure reactionary, G. K. Chesterton.

By A Reactionary

Smoke rolls in stinking, suffocating wrack
On Shakespeare’s land, turning the green one black;
The crowds that once to harvest home would come
Hope for no harvest and possess no home,
While poor old tramps that like a little ale,
In natural procession pass to gaol;
Because the world must, like the tramp, move on,
There does not seem much else that can be done.
As Lord Vangelt said in the house of Peers:
“None of us want Reaction.” (Tory cheers.)

So doubtful doctors punch and prod and prick
A man thought dead; and when there’s not a kick
Left in the corpse, no twitch or faint contraction,
The doctors say: “See. . . there is no Reaction.”

I didn't particularly find the film to be targeting environmentalism. It was targeting the global warming hoax, which is not synonymous with true environmentalism. Or, if I missed it you can show me where he specifically thinks all environmentalism is bad.

That being said, what in the film did you think was nonsense?

The Global Warming HOAX? You think someone's been tampering with the thermometers?

Athanasius Saturday, December 19, 2009 at 11:30:00 PM CST  

Yes, God. Warming and cooling trends are completely natural, and have occurred all throughout history. The Middle Ages had an unprecedented period of warming between the 10th and 13th centuries, followed by a period of significant cooling in the 14th-15th century. Its all natural. That is not to say industrialism has no effect, I do prefer clean air and clean water and government to enforce laws to protect the resources the common good must use. But seriously, have you not seen the e-mails from these scientists clearly cherry picking their data?

Moreover, look at the snow that was just dumped on Copenhagen during that warming conference. If that is not a sign from God I don't know what is.

Lord Monckton's lecture is worth watching.

I have to say, the lack of debate on this issue, and the obvious attempts to stifle debate by the IPCC, have done more than anything else to heighten my skepticism.

We now have China stepping forward, telling the world that it's brutal one-child/forced abortion policy has reduced carbon emissions, and would work out well for the rest of the world.

I'm all for taking measures to deal with a rise in sea levels, but I absolutely reject the transfer of hundreds of billions of tax dollars from all over the world, not to mention a significant chunk of political power, to an unelected body of bureaucrats and administrators who believe that abortion is a fundamental human right and that the planet is "overpopulated."

"The American Revolution might thus be said to have started, in a sense, when Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the church door at Wittenberg. It received a substantial part its theological and philosophical underpinnings from John Calvin’s ‘Institutes Of The Christian Religion’ and much of its social history from the Puritan Revolution of 1640- 1660, and, perhaps, less obviously, from the Glorious Revolution of 1689.

“Put another way, the American Revolution is inconceivable in the absence of that context of ideas which have constituted radical Christianity. The leaders of the Revolution in every colony were imbued with the precepts of the Reformed faith.”

…..the Reformation “left its mark on every aspect of the personal and social life of the faithful. In the family, in education, in business activity, in work, in community and, ultimately, in politics, the consequences of the Reformation were determinative for American history.”

...it is essential that we understand that the Reformation in its full power was one of the great emancipations of history.” He says the passage in the book of Micah about “every man…under his vine and under his fig tree” was “the most potent expression of the colonist’s determination to be independent whatever the cost, “having substantial control over his own affairs. No theme was more constantly reiterated by writers and speakers in the era of the Revolution.”

Religious Origins Of The American Revolution” (Scholars Press, 1976), Page Smith
