Auld Lang Syne: 2009 to 1929

January 12, 2009

Anyone older than the X-Box generation who was paying attention in the latter half of 2008 realizes that we just relived 1929. The X-Box generation needs to be reminded that following the Great Stock Market Crash of 1929 was the decade-long Depression of the 1930s. Americans largely believes the Crash of 1929 and the ensuing Depression were economic anomalies that were no one’s fault. They just happened. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Economist James P. Warburg, who agrees with that point-of-view, in writing The West In Crisis (Doubleday © 1953, pg. 20) said: “…History is written more by accident than design, often by the wholly irrational acts of madmen,” Franklin D. Roosevelt who participated in several conspiracies during his 12-plus years in the White House, observed: “In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, it was planned to happen.”

It is difficult for a casual observer to grasp the fact that catastrophic events like the Stock Market Crash of 1929, the banking collapse and the Great Depression might actually have been planned, and that actions that adversely impacted millions of people could have been deliberately staged, or that such power actually existed then-and still exists within our society today. Poll 100 people today and 99 of them will tell you such power does not exist. They are wrong. It does. And, since 1995 that power has been manipulating the economies of the industrialized world to covertly transfer the industrial wealth of the United States to the emerging nations of the world where tomorrow’s consumers, the human capital of the corporate cartel, lives waiting for the US jobs that will make them the primary consumers of the 21st century.
