Mike Krieger on The Big Lie – Guest Post at Max Keiser Hits the Nail on the Head

05 May

This piece by Mike Krieger provides much needed insight into the current financial roilings – the war is on between the truth and lies – and the two quotes at the front of the piece set exactly the right tone.

For those of us who have been paying attention for longer than the years since the beginning of the final collapse, all the earmarks are here – the last throws of the corrupt control system euphamistically called “US Free Market Capitalism” are playing out before us.

Keep your eye on the man behind the curtain.

Pay no attention to the giant booming mirage attempting to scare you out of your pants and your physical gold and silver holdings.

 

Guest Post from Mike Krieger: The Big Lie

Gold today is no longer related to the normal economic cycle of supply and demand, jewelry, Indian wedding seasons, rain in the Middle East.  All those things are passé, forget about them.  Gold is driven today by one overriding and I am afraid, at least in my opinion, an irresistible and irreversible trend.  A fundamental, global and growing insecurity… A fundamental, global and growing lack of confidence of the world in everything they were brought up to believe.  Institutions, insurance companies, banks, issuers of mortgages, ratings agencies, equities, sovereign debt, Federal Reserve Banks.  Portugal and Iceland.  Greece and Spain.  Currencies.  What is left?  What is left?
- Peter Munk, Chairman of Barrick Gold

Bureaucracy defends the status quo long past the time when the quo has lost its status.

The Big Lie

I feel completely blessed to be alive right now.  To be a witness and participant in a moment in human history that will be written about and passed down in tales for as long as humanity remains on this planet.  We are currently observing the evaporation of what Nazis referred to as “The Big Lie.” In very basic terms the concept of The Big Lie is that if you are going to lie you may as well lie big.  So big in fact that the majority of well meaning citizenry could never imagine anyone lying on such a grand scale (particularly not their government “officials”) so that they don’t even question the basis of their own reality.  In the case of the United States the Big Lie is that we have a free market capitalist economy.  Instead we have a corporatist/fascist economy that enriches three main groups.  Wall street financiers, the military industrial complex and large multi-national corporations that don’t pay taxes.  So that begs the question, how can the American people be so brainwashed into thinking they live in this false reality?  It’s very easy.  It’s all about the money.

Up until recently (and by that I mean the last three years) how many people asked what is a dollar?  How is it created and who controls the creation?  Essentially no one did.  The financial crisis changed everything because as the false reality finally cratered under its own weight the super elite that robs and rapes the rest of us saw their world crumbling and they panicked.  In order to save themselves, their reputations and most importantly their wealth they responded in such an absurd and selfish manner it shook millions of Americans from their slumber.
