Lest Darkness Triumph - by L. Neil Smith

• by L. Neil Smith (The Libertarian Enterprise)
Twenty-three years ago, I wrote a novel that would eventually come to be called Forge of the Elders, in which I predicted that, in the aftermath of the collapse of the once-powerful Soviet Empire, and a general, worldwide rejection of communism, the United States would embrace Marxism and drag the rest of the world with it, back into the abysss.

Look, if the banks and Government became forthright and honest overnight, and returned the money value and freedom to the people as best as they could, there would be disaster and panic across America. Why? Because the people aren't used to this kind of thing. We were worked into slavery slowly, and if we want to avoid tremendous loss of life, we need to work our way out slowly.

Consider the Internet. The banks, Government, Big Pharma, etc., may all have had ulterior motives for allowing it to be set in place. Or, maybe they didn't have much choice. But, it has backfired on them to some extent. It is starting to free the minds of the people, and not only in America, but also worldwide.

The Power Elite who use the banks, Government and Big Pharma to enslave the people, are NOT going to change their ways willingly. They are using the Net and whatever means that they can to keep the people as their slaves.

The question is, how do we the people keep the BIGs from enslaving us further, all the while reducing the slaver-hold they have on us, but doing it in such a way that we don't destroy ourselves by a sudden "release?" The answer isn't easy or easily said.

The first thing that we must do is NOT EMULATE THEM. Big "L" Libertarian is not the way, while small "l" libertarian is part of the way. In other words, you can't use Big banks, Big Gov, Big Parma style activities to make small banks, small Gov and small Pharma. Basically, it just won't work.

No. The way to become free is to stop USING the BIGs. We need to replace Big Banks with local barter, and barter across the Internet, including things like Internet e-currencies, especially ones like Bitcoin. It's being done, but the people don't clearly understand the opportunities for freedom that they have here.

We need to replace Big Gov with local Governmental organizations - even neighborhood groups - that stop participating with Big Gov, except to band together and put it in its place when necessary.

We need to replace Big Pharma with home healing remedies, and midwifing, at least until we can figure out if Big Pharma really has anything that works.

Personally speaking, three things that I can see that will bring a person to as good health as can be expected in this life are 1) Rick Simpson's hemp oil. Colorado and Washington are leading the way with hemp (marijuana) freedom, and lots of other States are following.

Two and three I can speak about from personal experience. Two is Dr. Garry Gordon's BC-I oral chelation product. It works.

Three is Jim Humble's MMS... just about the cheapest product anywhere for killing off all kinds of pathogens in ones body, including pathogens responsible for diabetes, cancer, malaria and even heart disease.

Websites like Freedom's Phoenix, and the people behind them, are the kinds of people that we need to emulate. Why? Because these folks don't simply do the Internet thing. They pass on their info and activities in dozens of ways in life, with all kinds of folks around them. If we ALL do the same, we will have banded together in a NATURAL GOVERNMENT that will have no visible bands, yet one that will prove far stronger than any of the BIGs.

What many Americans simply DO NOT comprehend, is WHY is America turning Marxist?  I'll tell you why:  CENTRAL BANKERS.  You see, everything in society has become financialized, by CENTRAL BANKERS.  If you control the printing presses, that print up the Federal Reserve Notes, that everyone uses, to buy things - YOU CONTROL EVERYTHING!  You can, for example, print up as many FRN's as you personally need, in order to buy Mansions, Yachts, Islands (such as Greek Islands), Lamborghini's, Countries, Politicians, the Main Stream Media, Armies, etc.  And, you can print up as many FRN's as you'd need to BAIL OUT ALL YOUR FELLOW FRAUDSTERS, and CRONIES, who are an important part, of your MATRIX SYSTEM - like the other TBTF ("Too-Big-To-Fail") Banks.  You bail them out, like in 2008, by printing up tens of TRILLIONS of debt-based FRN's, that taxpayers will never be able to pay back, and hand them over to your key cronies, to keep the status quo going.  It's perpetual financial slavery.  It's socialism/communism for the masses, with all profits aggregating into the hands of the .01% of the top 1%.  It's ONLY the top 1% who are experiencing a 'recovery'.
