...But of these sophisms and elenchs of merchandise I skill not...
Milton, Areopagitica

Except he had found the
standing sea-rock that even this last
Temptation breaks on; quieter than death but lovelier; peace
that quiets the desire even of praising it.

Jeffers, Meditation On Saviors




I will not accept that the end result of all this financial mayhem is the result of the free market.
This is the result of very powerful people using their power to subvert the life saving signals that a free market will send to people telling them TO STOP WHAT THEY ARE DOING!! Those signals are being intercepted at every conceivable point in the market. From the press(MSM financial manipulation of epic propartions) to Gold prices(GATA has more than proven their case that gold is being manipulated by National banks the world over), to prices to governmental reporting.
All of it is being manipulated in an attempt to keep the con going a little longer. Because the whole system is based on a confidence game, HENCE THE NAME!! A confidence man can only keep swindling people if the MARK keeps having confidence in the man who is deceiving him.
Imagine a confidence man(swindler, grifter, whatever the hell you call him) who has the ability to control all the information around you. He could keep you in the dark for years, because there wouldn't be anyone around you to scream at you "HE'S CHEATING YOU!".
We are in the same boat as an entire society. The people around us who are supposed to be screaming STOP are not doing it, because they are part of the swindle.
They are blocking all signals to the average person, that the system is fatally broke and a realignment is coming full force at them.
