The reality we face today is stark, but still full of potential. It is obvious that the current system of politics and economics is rigged against everyone who is outside a select group of individuals scattered across a vast, global network who believe themselves to be the “masters of the universe”. In fact, it is fully apparent that politicians and the governmental entities they command are married to the Big Money Interest.
Big Money Bullies the World
Intellectuals, both for and against Big Money, have taken notice of this network of power, close to 6,000 individuals that hold the levers of control around the world, further tightening their grip with each passing day. In his voluminous text Tragedy & Hope, Historian Dr. Carroll Quigley pointed out the goal for Big Money was “…nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences.”

I bring this up because it is quite obvious that money holds power, and those with the most of it reign over the wage slaves, but it isn’t obvious to the common man where exactly money comes from. Our financial system in America is based solely on debt, meaning every dollar created is a dollar owed. Most people consider having a hoard of Federal Reserve Notes as something to be admired, to be praised. Although they can be exchanged for something now, they have no intrinsic value, and any value that is attributed to them is decreased as the Federal Reserve continues to print and lend more money (at interest) to the government and other banks. This is what happens for a central bank in any country, and as history shows, it doesn’t last.
Big Money Brings Low Prosperity
The reason why I bring up the subject of money is because it is important, especially to anyone supporting the cause of Meritocracy. In order to truly bring in a New World Order, the Old World Order must be done away with, and that means taking away their greatest means of controlling people: their ability to create money out of thin air and fool everyone into believing they have value. A Meritocratic Republic would, of necessity, have to return to a gold standard and maintain absolute control over the coinage of money through a state bank, staffed with honest women preferably, who will not manipulate the economy for the benefit of the few and to the detriment of the many. Money has to become honest in order for everyone to enjoy prosperity.
Once the next bust occurs, the economic roller coaster must end. America, and the world, must cut credit and return to gold. A system of debt will perpetuate debt. A system of value will perpetuate value. It really is that simple. But in these times, hardly anyone recognizes true value. Those who do must stand up and acknowledge that the task before them is to pull off the revaluation of all values that Nietzsche recommended many years ago. Meritocrats must educate everyone on the falsity of the Federal Reserve Note and wean them off debt. If people realize they have been receiving the short end of the stick, they will fight for their fair share. The Meritocratic Republic will rise only when the Big Banks fall.
