State Capture VS State Capture

The Latest Capture by the Gupta's is a fart in the wind against the banksters

Amid all the talk lately in the SA media about the Gupta's and State Capture (all valid mind you) it's sometimes easy to forget that the Gupta's are rank amateurs in the art, we are already in the midst of a state capture going back more than a century.  A State Capture happened in South Africa, just as it happened in the US and elsewhere, when the nations central banks were made unaccountable to voters.  This meant that no matter which party rules, whoever is elected, the central banks cannot be voted in or out and they will remain in power lending to the nation state at interest for no other reason other than the mandate they have to print the nations money supply.  They will always work with a finance minister who bank-affiliated  and compliant National Treasury. The nation will therefore always remain at fiscal deficits and known bankster agencies such as Moody's will always make lending even more expensive on each downgrade ,earning ever more interest for the banksters printing that same money out of thin air (in the form of Treasury Bonds guaranteed by taxation placing the nations children on the hook as debt surety). They then simply "lend" that currency (not money - this is important) simply and lending to the state. the risk is moot since they create the money from nothing there is essentially no risk to think of.

The commercial banks issue the balance of the nations currency from debt issued to consumers, out of thin air, and charge interest on that too as if it were loaned out from a capital or assets account, which it is not.  Real money is not Fiat currency debt created out of thin air, real money (like gold and silver) is a store of value and can only be loaned out from real reserves, justifying interest for risk.  This could become as much a Banks VS Gupta's issue as with either of them VS the State and the people.

Money VS Currency

The banksters will always have (de facto) agents just like Pravin Gordhan who own shares in the banks and have a conflict of interest between the banks and the nation, they have since Trevor Manual and before.

This is for certain no reason to resist the State Capture the Gupta's are engaged in currently, it's simply a call to remember that for every cent the Gupta's steal, the bankers steal a Rand. The Nations national debt payments mostly go to servicing debt,at interest, lending from private bankers that create money from nothing, something the state could just as easily do for itself interest free, this is why we cannot afford movements like #FeesMustFall, something the ANC promised voters more than a decade ago!

So next time we get up in arms about the Gupta's, keep at it, it's great we are finally learning, but ask yourself why you suddenly care?

Watch This!

The above clip from Mike Maloney, episode four in his excellent "Hidden Secrets Money" series (Watch them all!) puts in a better way than I have yet seen it explained, it's essential viewing.

Scientific Consensus is that Consensus is overturned 100% of the time

Everything you know is wrong. There is a very good reason why science succeeds more often than politics does.  Unlike politics, It's not a consensus or a vote,  it's actually method.  The scientific method. Anyone who has read this blog before probably knows I'm a lifelong science junkie as well as someone who spends thousands of hours breaking down the the political and economic agendas behind the special interest groups that guide public policy.  In many ways I'm actually uniquely qualified to tie these angles together in ways not well understood by the overwhelming majority of people.  That actually includes scientists. Scientists are notoriously naive in the political and economic forces that drive the human world.

First and foremost,  what is this so called 'consensus' anyway.  You will be horrified to find out,  it's not specifically that global warming is man made.  It's simply that humans contribute to climate change in an unknowable way and to…

CO2 is not a pollutant, it is greening the earth!

Whatever your persuasion is on CO² and AGW, nobody disagrees on the tremendous benefit it provides plant life. Many of the past famine disasters and desertification has CO² decline listed as a contributor.

I feel I've already blown the notion that humans are the main cause of climate change out of the water. Or rather I've used the reasoning of others and put it together in a convenient outline. See my previous post above for starters.  However, I recognize that humans do increase CO² levels, no matter how tiny. Increases are likely to be very short lived because the earth has an effective feedback mechanism, but we can apparently get small increases, and it's been put forward on very poor science that this is a bad thing. That assertion hinges completely on bad models. More on that in the bottom most link.  Model's and the measurement sample dates are dubious at best.

Furthermore, the main increase in CO²  as…

You Don't Know What Capitalism Is So Stop Using The Word!

I am writing this for one purpose, to be able to post it every time the issue comes up in conversation to prevent myself from dying of boredom on a few key issues with label intellectuals, you know, the sort who drop labels for the singular purpose of demonstrating their talent at dodging real issues by posing as someone who knows the definition of a word.

When it comes right down to it, I personally think most economic and, for that matter, socio-economic systems across the entire capitalism/ socialism spectrum could work if corruption could just be reasonably controlled.  Many forget that Socialism still runs on the capitalism economics system and the finer points actually come down to policy and regulations. This is often missed.  That being said, I am fairly sure that many of the criticisms of communism for example are valid, and views that it does not work especially well because it tends to kill the inventiveness and passion of the human spirit do stand, but not for the reasons…
