The problem as Arnie notes is very long-standing and began with a gross over-reach and misrepresentation and fraud back in the 1860's. The fraud occurring here was just part of the fraud occurring worldwide. As we have learned, what happened here also happened in Canada, New Zealand, Australia, India, Africa, Europe----- all using the same boilerplates.
So this was begun throughout the old British Empire like a virus infecting the whole machinery of government and the relationship of all those governments infected with the people that government is meant to serve.
Arnie's interpretation of reality is simplistic in my view and pre-supposes that all these people did know (or do know) what they are doing and know that it is wrong and are doing it anyway.
I take the more measured view that I didn't know what was going on and was just a cog in the wheels during the years I worked for the STATE OF ALASKA and Department of Labor and so on, so if I didn't know this---- who did? Maybe some people many steps up the ladder, but nobody in my ranks which were still fairly high in the overall structure.
My observation is that information is kept compartmentalized in such a fashion that there is very little chance of anyone outside the core management group ever getting a glimpse of the Big Picture and seeing that it is a crime syndicate at work. This then allows the rats to trade on the good, well-intentioned people they hire and use them as a smokescreen and as unwitting tools to accomplish their fraud.
I have talked to many, many people in state and federal government and the light is just now, very dimly, beginning to come on.
For someone who has worked as a Securities Trader on Wall Street it is child's play to look at a "Birth Certificate" and recognize it as a bond. It's on bond paper. It's signed by an officer of the probate court--- the Registrar. It has the required form and numbers. But how many of us work as Securities Traders on Wall Street---- ?
I rest my case. I didn't see it. Arnie didn't see it. I'd guess at least 95% of Americans and Brits and Canadians and Aussies didn't see it, because if they did---- just like Henry Ford said---- there would be politicians hanging from lampposts already and long ago. This was done by fraud and stealth. Our ignorance was preyed upon and utilized and encouraged---- even enforced.
So unlike Arnie, who seems to have an amazing lack of introspection regarding his own former ignorance, I am not big on the Blame Game. I figure if it took me forty years to figure it out, what chance would Joe Schmoe, carpet installer, ever have? None. Colonel House was right. Not one in a million will have the interest and be in position to figure it out, and of the 400 who do, half will be too old and tired to fight and another 25% will be sunk to their gills sucking off the teats created by the fraud, and another 15% will be technocrats with no communication skills who are frightened out of their minds by what they have glimpsed, which leaves about 40 of us nationwide across all the generations who MIGHT put it all together and who MIGHT raise their hands and who MIGHT have the moxie and resources to bring it forward into the political arena and who MIGHT succeed in raising the alarm and prodding public action........
Not big odds. Not at all. Which explains why the rats have been bold enough to take their "inventions" down to the Patent Office and so obligingly provide us all with irrefutable public records in their own words giving all the details of their scheming and iniquity.
This also explains why the fraud has managed to succeed and thrive and survive in our midst all these years. Nobody recognized it for what it was.
Now that we do correction is inevitable as rain falling. It's just a matter of cluing in more and more and more people. Eventually those participating will be shamed into correction and those being victimized will raise enough rumpus to see it stopped.
That's another thing that I disagree with Arnie on. He has always wanted to build a big, monolithic "machine"---like a political party to address this situation. I have never wanted that. It has been my theory that doing that would simply be a lot of time and energy spent on the machine and that such an organized effort would give the perps something to aim at and label and target as "opposition"---- when in fact giving the information to people and letting them take 350 million different avenues forward is ultimately more taxing and harder to define and confine and in the end more effective.
One must also remember that our abusers are also for the main, victims. They pay the same taxes. They labor under the same threats. They eventually realize which side of the fence they need to stand on. It doesn't take baseball bats and screaming and ranting and accusations and insults a la Arnie. It takes time---- time for people to take in the information and test it, time to see one's own situation clearly, time to react, form a plan, and do something.
Which brings me to the answer---- not everyone can or will or should do the name change, though I highly recommend it as an effective means of reclaiming your basic identity and placing yourself outside the political presumptions of Babylon.
Instead, we each have to consider what we CAN do and do that. If you don't have the money or the understanding or the commitment to do a name change, well, that's your choice. Maybe all you can do is share the information with your next door neighbor or your best friend or your pastor.
Who knows what you can or "should do"---- but God and you?I am perfectly willing to admit and even to suspect that there are people out there right now who don't have a nickel to spare, yet have the means to make a greater contribution than I have. That's just the nature of things. God delights in sending stripling boys to face giants and mild-mannered carpenters to defeat death and stuttering men to serve as prophets. It pleases him to raise up a Great-Grandma from Big Lake, Alaska. And I have no doubt that he will raise up many, many even less likely people to do greater services and find their own ways to end this fraud.
