Banking - Did you know:
All money comes into
circulation through an interest-based loan from either
the Federal Reserve or another private bank.
As a result, there is more
debt than money in our economy. This is not due to
irresponsible lending, but is inherent to the mechanics
of all fiat currency.
Every time a loan is repaid,
interest (wealth) is transferred from the working class
to the ownership class. Structural class-ism is
therefore built directly into the system. Again, it is
not simply a result of greedy people within the system -
it is a reality upon which the entire concept of banking
The Solution? - Credit Unions
...at least in the short term.
While still technically a
fractional-reserve lending system,
Credit Unions have one
important difference from conventional banks: no shareholders.
With conventional banks, a large amount of the revenue generated
from the lending programs is paid to the super-ownership class
of the bank-owners.
They receive interest on money that they
aren’t even necessarily lending themselves. They just take it because they can:
“our bank, our rules- bitch.”
With credit unions, there are no shareholders. All revenue from
loans is payed to members and employees. Again, not perfect, but
far better. Personally, I would recommend only keeping as much
money in a credit union as you need to meet your day-to-day
expenses (a few thousand at most).
The rest could be put to better use
with more globally harmonious investments.
Energy - Did you know:
69.3% of US energy comes
from burning fossil fuels . This process
releases lead and arsenic into the air and water, and is
the number one source of Mercury contamination in the
United States .
More than 99% of the world’s
cars run on an internal combustion engine, burning
either petroleum, or (occasionally) an oil derived from
genetically modified soy .
14% of the world’s
electricity comes from nuclear fission .
We have no way to reintegrate the waste product from
this process, ecologically, as it is one the most
radiatively toxic substances ever designed. Our current
model is to bury it under Yucca Mountain in Nevada and,
well, hope that one one ever goes near that god-forsaken
Biofuels are made almost
entirely from subsidized GMO crops, and still emit
carcinogens during combustion.
The Solution - Renewable Electricity
This is the only known ecologically harmonious option for
Options to create this include
Solar, Wind, Wave, Tidal, and especially Geothermal energy.
Using these techniques at our current technological capacity, we
could power the entire planet many times over without one
calorie coming from fossil fuels or nuclear reactors.
Nikola Tesla developed a method to generate
literally infinite energy anywhere - directly from the electric
field of the universe. His discoveries and all replications
since have been systematically de-funded, and either confiscated
by military intelligence or destroyed through arson.
the movie Thrive. It is top 5 on
my all-time list.
As for practical applications today, simply do your best to cut
your footprint (not of carbon emissions, but of the
non-harmonious energy empire), and fund alternatives as you can
personally afford to. Good options are walking, riding your
bike, fitting up your house with solar panels (if you own a
home), and buying into local, independent, sustainable energy
co-ops (if you don’t).
This is also one of the good
investments I was referring to above.
Agriculture/Biotech - Did you
US subsidized crops range
from 65 to 94% in their use of Genetically Modified
Organisms (GMO)  - in case there was any doubt that
out government was in bed with
GMO’s are organisms whose
genes have been spliced with genes from other species to
better benefit the business model of the company selling
them (most notably, Monsanto). One highly prevalent
example is the “Terminator Gene,” which causes the
organism to be sterile.
This forces the grower to
buy new seeds from Monsanto every year, rather than
simply replanting the seeds of their harvest as nature
intended. I wonder how eating 90% sterilized food might
affect the reproductive health of humans.
Don’t a lot people have
issues with that these days? Oh well - it’s cheaper.
99% of US agriculture is
grown with petroleum-based fertilizer .
Thought we only used that stuff for cars and plastics,
huh? Think again. By buying “conventionally” grown food,
you are, in fact, supporting the American War Machine.
99% of Agriculture in the US
is grown with pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, or a
cocktail of the three . These are toxic
chemicals designed to kill organisms outside the
intended monoculture. The only reason the crop itself
can survive these sprayings is because they have been
genetically modified to withstand them.
Gene,” for example, allows crops to tolerate ordinarily
toxic levels of the patented poison (and it is a
poison). The problem with this process is that it
delivers food which may appear healthy, yet is likely to
be carrying significant levels of toxins within it.
The Solution - Follow this formula
Whenever possible, grow at your own home with organic (non
When you can’t grow it yourself, buy
local or regional organic. If you can’t buy local or regional
organic, you probably don’t need (or want) to be eating it.
Media - Did you know:
Almost 100% of
mainstream media is owned by seven companies:
They control everything from movies and
television, to all the major newspapers, and even music
record labels .
When one company dominates
an industry, it is called a monopoly. When a handful of
companies cooperatively dominate an industry, it is
called a “Cartel.” This is what we have with our
mainstream media - an elite group that is cooperatively
and covertly controlling everything that comes through
our television, radio, newspaper, and theater.
When people say that the
mainstream media is “biased toward special interest
groups,” it means that the super-elite own all of it,
and don’t allow exposure to people who expose their
Consider, for example, why
filmmakers such as Peter Joseph and Dylan Avery have
never been interviewed on mainstream TV.

most viewed documentaries in the history of the
Their work is systematically
blacklisted, however, due to its accurate exposure of
the forces at work behind the the media empire, as well
as every other industry outlined in this article.
The Solution - Independent Media
Cancel your subscription to cable (aka the cabal). It’ll save
you money and disconnect you from the Propaganda Machine.
Get your news and world affairs from
Independent sources who are not in the pocket of the financial
There are some big names in alternative media who
are uncovering much more than what can be found among the
so-called "mainstream," as well as hundreds of others you can
find on BlogTalkRadio and various blogs.
What’s more, don’t get all your
information from any one place - diversify and see what truly
resonates with you.
For those who want to go the extra mile, start blogging yourself
and sharing important information through social media. Do your
part to help get the important headlines out there and visible.
Your ability to do this is
phenomenal. Even if all you do is post a video on your Facebook,
you are likely to generate AT LEAST 20 views for an issue that
otherwise would not have been there.
As more people are waking up to the
system and starting to do this every day, I believe very
strongly that the Media Empire’s days are numbered.
Healthcare - Did you know:
provide corporate sponsorship (money) for scientific
journals, medical school textbooks, and political
lobbies. A pro-pharmaceutical bias has been
scientifically documented and in the British Medical
Med students study drugs in
almost every quarter of their degree, and take, on
average, only one class on nutrition.
There is not a single
pharmaceutical drug that actually makes people healthier
(pause for cries of indignation). What pharmaceuticals
do is mask symptoms (anesthetics), destroy cells
indiscriminately (Chemo and other cancer treatment
drugs), or introduce small amounts of disease (vaccinations).
There is not a single one
that actually harmonizes the human body. Say what you
want about “having these options in your back pocket,”
but recognize that none of them are good for you, and
none of them cure disease.
Only the human immune system
can do that.
The Solution - Don’t expect an industry run by pharmaceutical
conglomerates to keep you healthy

If you don’t get those 3 figured out

empower ourselves with understanding.
For more complex health issues, explore alternative approaches
that are harmonious with the functioning of the human system.
Some awesome options are acupuncture, reiki, and chiropractics.
For health consultations and checkups, you are better off with a
naturopath or homeopath than a conventional MD.
And, finally, if you have a chronic
pain condition and feel that you just need some relief in the
interim period while you heal, toss the semi-synthetic opiates
out the window, and roll yourself
That’s just my two cents.
