Banking Crisis / One World Government

Tue Oct 07, 2008 8:38 pm

Do you think that this banking-crisis is being used by bankers to consolidate the banks (force the bulk of them to go out of business leaving only a few left... and then from there just one bank, which everybody is dependant on), and by certain people to set in motion actions that will result in a one-world government?

Consider that if a one world government were to exist you would end up with a tremendous amount of power in the hands of a relatively small number of people with no other country to provide any check and balance against it. Knowing that power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely (and the fact that a lot of these people who aim for a one world government are not democratically elected), this is extremely dangerous and you'd have nowhere to run to.

I do not believe any of the ideas you present here could ever come to fruition . I see no way the situation you present is possible

Unless we stop it, yes.

Brilliant. The state breaks the market by intervening in it, and patches it up by taking it over. Brilliant.

Between Obama and this economic boondogle, I think we have seen the last time unemployment is below 5-6% in the US for a long, long time. All for raising the home ownership rate by a few percent.

We are entering an age of socialism, and I don't like it.

From what I'm seeing, this crisis is showing how hard it is to make the one-continent government called the EU work, so no, I don't see how this leads to a one-world government.

And current affairs also seem to be showing how large parts of Africa are just plain ungovernable.

The nature of business is to beat the competition. Some banks are more financially sound than others, so naturally some banks will emerge from the crisis in better shape than their competitors. However, the bankers didn't create the crisis in order to bust up the competition. And there's no need to force other banks out of business, as they seem to be doing a stand-up job all by themselves.

That might be a nice idea if it wasn't for the fact that so many banks and governments have such fundamental disagreements on how things should be run - it's not even close to happening. Consolidation happens in all markets all the time. Weak car manufacturers are bought up by rivals, weak supermarket chains are bought up by rivals, etc. It's the way commerce works.

Empire by conquest is the old way. Empire by consent is the new. At this time, you (and most people) do not want world government. As you know things change, and so will your attitudes towards an all-powerful centralized government.

If you need to know how this will be accomplished.....

Think of an event(s) that would need to take place for -you- to change your mind about a one world government? That is what is being planned and enacted right now.

Some of us actually live in metropolitan areas where the majority of people are employed by multinational corporations and their subsidiaries, customers, back office service providers, and logistic delivery schemata. The effects are a bit more immediate and tangible for us, thus justifiable doom and gloom.

Every Toyota Group company, by far the largest employer in this area, has just instructed their managers not to allow any overtime work for the rest of the year. For a company with a notorious reputation for slave-driving, do you have any idea what a fundamental shift that is?

I have yet to see any of these conspiracy theory people actually name names. It's always "bankers" or "them" or something. They want us to believe that there's this all-powerful clique of people that we've never heard of. Is it Warern Buffet or Bill Gates? I don't think so, they've lost money in the market just like everyone else...

As far as I can see, the Danish members includes the CEO of an Insurance company, the CEO of Danish Oil and Natural Gas, a newspaper editor and the CEO of a group I'm not immediately familiar with. Are they supposed to be the ones who take over the Danish society? If so, I could think of a few more well placed people, rathat than this lot..

Quoting MD80fanatic (Reply 12):
What if you are driven to change your mind by a contrived "emergency"

I don't think there can be any doubt that a major financial "whoopsie" has taken place. And that "whoopsie" was driven by banks over-extending themselves due to competition, not by collaboration. If there had been collaboration, I'm pretty sure they would have come up with something that didn't leave investors believing so many bank directors are idiots.

Quoting Johns624 (Reply 14):

There may have been names mentioned but it's always so vague it's really not worth worrying about. Someone with a bit of clout mentions the benefits of co-operation between governments and suddenly they're "on the list" of those "actively creating a world government". Mention an alternative to the UN and you're "on the list".

Maybe, one day, but I think Lumberton's point is a good one. It would take massive changes for governments and banks to even consider conspiring to "take over the world". It simply isn't happening - no chance in hell. The markets will have recovered in a year or two and the whole thing will be all but forgotten.

Sadly, you are probably correct -- It can be summed up in three words: Action, Reaction, Solution. Create a source of fear (action) that will result in people feeling the need or desire for an all-powerful one world government (reaction), then offer the "solution" (that nobody really wants but are manipulated into "wanting it") -- an all-powerful one world government (solution).

Seriously, it's not gonna happen in the forseeable future. We're a planet of racists and bigots, we're all convinced that our own way of doing things is so much better than everyone else's, so getting over national pride is gonna be a whopper of a problem. When countries try to do something together, we almost always screw up in one way or another.

Hm, I bet the first person on that list, Etienne Davignon, doesn't feel all too happy. His "child", Fortis (the biggest bank in the Benelux) has just been dissolved, divided between PNB Paribas of France and the Dutch government. If the goal is to create one world bank, at least overhere exactly the opposite happened.

No western country that I'm aware of has even a remote chance of "persuading" its citizens to accept a one-party system within its own borders. How on earth do you think it's even remotely likely that all parties in all countries would promote a single world government? And what do you mean by "usually"? Has an all powerful world government been established before?

You and a few others might feel you've been "frightened" into misinformation. The rest of us are more interested in what actually goes on the the world.

Dave,

I didn't compile that list, I only copy-and-paste(d) it from another site. What I do know is what is talked about in the meeting is secret. If you ask any of the people listed they will categorically deny even being there, even though they were all photographed as they entered the parking lot.

We have a secret meeting of some of the world's most prominent royalty, finance, corp. executives, press, and the military. They are sworn to secrecy about what goes on inside and about the very existence of the group itself. That isn't very comforting especially considering the economic disaster that has befallen us as of late. I wouldn't doubt at all that what we are living through now was hatched within the confines of that meeting. Surely they do not all meet for an annual secret tea party.

If it is all so very secret how come there is a list off all the people who have ever been in wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Bilderberg_attendees

I very much doubt any of the people who attend deny attending nor is there probably much secret squirrel stuff going on when they have reporters at the meenting.

Do you think that this banking-crisis is being used by bankers to consolidate the banks

Yes, it is called capitalism. Survival of the fittest, etc. You know what I mean. How do you get from this part to a one-world-government is beyond me. Maybe I should have put my tin-foil hat on my head?

Quoting Doona (Reply 22):
Seriously, it's not gonna happen in the forseeable future. We're a planet of racists and bigots, we're all convinced that our own way of doing things is so much better than everyone else's, so getting over national pride is gonna be a whopper of a problem. When countries try to do something together, we almost always screw up in one way or another.

We'll all kill each other before uniting under one government.

 checkmark 

The only scenario I could think off to form a one-world-government is when the human race is about to be wiped out by aliens (or something like that). And even at that scenario, people won't want to unite, because there's just to much differences between us.

So, remove your tin-foil hat and continue living your life.

MD80Fanatic,

What if you are driven to change your mind by a contrived "emergency". What if your "choice" is come to by believing the talk of a one-world utopia?

If that's the "solution" offered and people are in a desperate situation (which could very well not be desperate but a contrived emergency) it's highly likely that people would do just as you stated. In a state of desperation people will do all sorts of things they would have never done in a million years otherwise.

Quote:
Thirsty people will drink the dirtiest of water.

Desperation is an excellent way to motivate people -- As I said: People will, in desperation, do things they would NEVER have done otherwise. I mean just look at the way our country has went after 9/11. We've given up Constitutional freedoms and rights that we never would have given up had 9/11 not happened.


LifelinerOne,

You do realize that from a capitalistic standpoint, a monopoly is VERY beneficial for the company that holds the monopoly right? It's just not beneficial for anyone else (no way to compete, and no other company to buy from if the quality of the product isn't up to your liking or costs a fortune)

The only type pf people that thrive on these certain kind of conspiracy theories are the type pf people who are naive or have nothing but free time on they're hands to fill their everyday lives with negative thoughts watch for every news article, buy in to all the kool-aide stirred up by the news and do not understand what critical thinking is.

Seriously, I am shocked to see how these ridicolous threads even gain any sort of popularity. The only thing I get out of them is a good laugh.

Are there bad people, bad goverments, organizations out there? sure. Bad things can and have happened through history. I can't say for sure what tommorow brings, however when I see such articles I take them with a grain of salt. When it all comes down to it I have to live my life the best I can. One thing is for certain and thats death and taxes.

Mike

If, if, if... But there is no evidence whatsoever that it's even close to happening. As usual, you've taken a purely hypothetical scenario, blown it out of all proportion and completely divorced it from reality. Don't you realise it's also possible that a world disaster might cause the complete collapse of all governments?

Absolutely, based on her history of thread starters, not just for selecting this one. There's a complete discontinuity in the logic. No-one here, no-one, has said there's nothing wrong with what's happened but that's not what the thread starter was about. It was an allegation that people are actively trying to create a single world bank and have a chance of succeeding. Actually, no money has been taken from me at all.

Don't confuse international discussion on what can be done to fix a worldwide problem with a "desire for an all-powerful world bank". Such meetings have happened many, many times before, all in the open.

David, I believe the most amazing characteristic of this "beast" we all face is it's uncanny ability to blind the smartest of people. No one likes to think that someone somewhere is pulling blinders over our eyes....we are too proud to admit that we are actually slaves, you and I. Instead we discuss and argue who has the biggest cell in this prison we find ourselves in....but never a word about how we can both escape. We have come to accept the prison as being simply how things are. It's money that is our shackles. The more we try to accumulate, the stronger our chains become. Whether you believe in a supreme being or not....there was one human who had the exact solution to escaping the prison. He said "Leave behind everything and follow me". Leave the chains behind and simply walk out the door. It's that easy.

About ten years ago.....I witnessed a short circuit in the matrix that surrounds us. I like to use the first Matrix movie since it provides such a concrete example of our plight. I thought like you, until I noticed something weird out of the corner of my eye....and ever since then I have looked at everything a little differently than others.

Since then I have become aware that we are NOT the top of the food chain on Earth, so to speak. There are a very few who really believe it is their divine right to rule over us, since biologically they are far superior to us (in their thinking).

If you have a spare few hours, I'd recommend watching "the money masters" on Google video. In that video, you will hear about the causes of another great drop in the market....when a very wealthy Rothschild lied about the progress of the war against Napoleon, in advance of the courier's arrival to announce the progress of the engagement.
The market dropped like a rock, and Rothschild bought everything up for pennies on the dollar.

Honestly, what would it hurt to think outside the box for a few moments? It won't cost you any money. If the fear of being labelled a CT frightens you, then do not tell anyone you are looking at this stuff. As long as you and your loved ones are aware of what is going on....that is all any of us "nutters" want. We don't care if you support us, we are used to going it alone....no biggie. When (and if) all hell breaks loose.....I'd rather you be fighting with us than against us. Okay?  Smile

We all do. We acknowledge that there is a remote possibility of anything at all happening. Then we apply our own knowledge and experience, look at the evidence and realise that it's really hardly likely at all.

Show us more than the remote possibility that the beast might exist. No-one is saying life's perfect. What we're saying is that the evidence of a conspiracy to implement an all-powerful world bank or an all-powerful world government is tenuous, at best, and that the sources are dubious (I mean, Ken Clarke, for goodness' sake  Smile ). The same goes for the allegedly imminent US nuclear strike on Iran and the idea that "the government" wants to waste it's limited resources spying on everyone.

Speak for yourself  Smile .. I thought of myself as a slave in my last job. When I was made redundant, I celebrated and made sure I didn't take a similar job again. I hardly think it's any kind of world conspiracy, though. It was all down to a handful of selfish, ambitious individuals who'll never amount to any more than I will.

If memory serves me ....the NYSE is set open for trading on Columbus Day, "Monday", it is a business day for receiving payments via Regulation "T" of the Fed'Reserve Board. However, it will not be a settlement date because many of the nation’s banking institutions will be closed. It will not be a "normal" day as when all banks etc are open. I do not know what effect this will have on the market as the second half of Friday was a wild ride on it's own add in the fact that Monday is not a settlement date and it may be a bumpy ride ... or it may even things out until Tuesday which will me a normal settlement business day.

I hope there will never be a world government. I doubt there will be one in my lifetime unless a WWIII comes and half of the existing world is destroyed by some crazy warmongers despots.

Can you imagine having a lifetime world leader like Chavez or Ahmadinejad or even W. Bush conrolling and dictating their whims to the whole planet? That would be a disaster and the end of freedom for all human beings for sure.
