Revealed – the capitalist network that runs the world

There are two articles presented below this little commentary.

How do you control candidates or politicians, from the president, to congress, to the senate, to the supreme court, to governors, to mayors? Or, those at other federal, state and local levels?

Clearly, We the People have no control. It is self-evident that We the People have no voice, no power and no property rights.

Speculation would lead you to believe that they all must work for “The Company”, before they could make a successful run for elective office.

How about through an organization, much like a business, but beyond the party level.
Almost like a secret society, a secret business organization, a shadow government.

Wouldn’t they need a sponsor.?

If a candidate or legislator runs afoul of corporate policy, they could find that they are on the outside, looking in.  Or, dead.  Same thing, if they get careless in public.

If they tow the line, they maintain and grow their sponsor base.
This leads to pay raises, bonuses, promotions and perks.
Upward mobility.

The wealth they accumulate along the way, inoculates them from the fickle winds of electioneering. But, it is not who votes that counts. It is who counts the votes.

So, even if they succumb to elections, they have the security of a position as a lobbyist, in a think tank, or a top corporation.

Legislators follow orders. “We have to pass this legislation to see what’s in it.”
Those that craft legislation, know precisely the ramifications.
There is purposeful intent and they do know what they are doing.

While Legislators have been corrupted, or co-opted, they are not ineffective.
They just follow orders, like the good puppets that they are.

A good example of how reality is truly different from contrived perceptions.

We are a failed citizenry.  A failed citizen is subjugated.
A subject has no voice, no power and no property rights.
The only rights you have, are those you are willing to fight, kill and die for.

Federal, state and local perpetrators will continue to ignore our rights and do as they please, or as they are ordered by the globalists, as long as it doesn’t cost them anything.

Revealed – the capitalist network that runs the world

AS PROTESTS against financial power sweep the world this week, science may have confirmed the protesters’ worst fears. An analysis of the relationships between 43,000 transnational corporations has identified a relatively small group of companies, mainly banks, with disproportionate power over the global economy.

The study’s assumptions have attracted some criticism, but complex systems analysts contacted by New Scientist say it is a unique effort to untangle control in the global economy. Pushing the analysis further, they say, could help to identify ways of making global capitalism more stable.

The idea that a few bankers control a large chunk of the global economy might not seem like news to New York’s Occupy Wall Street movement and protesters elsewhere (see photo). But the study, by a trio of complex systems theorists at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, is the first to go beyond ideology to empirically identify such a network of power. It combines the mathematics long used to model natural systems with comprehensive corporate data to map ownership among the world’s transnational corporations (TNCs).

The Age of Neo-Feudalism: A Government
of the Rich, by the Rich, and for the Corporations

“The shaping of the will of Congress and the choosing of the American president has become a privilege reserved to the country’s equestrian classes, a.k.a. the 20% of the population that holds 93% of the wealth, the happy few who run the corporations and the banks, own and operate the news and entertainment media, compose the laws and govern the universities, control the philanthropic foundations, the policy institutes, the casinos, and the sports arenas.” – Journalist Lewis Lapham

The pomp and circumstance of the presidential inauguration has died down. Members of Congress have taken their seats on Capitol Hill, and Barack Obama has reclaimed his seat in the White House. The circus of the presidential election has become a faint memory. The long months of debates, rallies, and political advertisements have slipped from our consciousness. Now we are left with the feeling that nothing has really changed, nor will it.

This is not by accident. The media circus leading up to the elections, the name calling in the halls of Congress, the vitriol and barbs traded back and forth among people who are supposed to be working together to improve the country, are all components of the game set up by those who run the show. The movers and shakers behind these engaging, but ultimately trite, political exercises are the elite, the so-called upper class, who benefit from the status quo. This status quo is marked by an economic crisis with no end in sight, by the slow but steady growth of a police state aimed at the lowest rungs of society, and a political circus which keeps us enraptured long enough that we don’t question what’s really going on.
