Forum Post: Is greed the problem?

I'm not sure I get purposes or methods of achieving them.

Greed seems to be a big reason for occupying Wall street, but why not gluttony or laziness, there is plenty of that in America as well. I don't understand protesting human flaws. I do support your right to protest though.

Another thing that baffles me is how many people support the Federal Reserve or centralized banking, yet oppose big banks. Without the Fed banks would have to be more responsible and would be subject to the same laws of the free market. The Fed allows the banks to inflate together. The Fed is a reason you can no longer cause a bank run and put a bank out of business. I am thankful for banks, without which I would not own a home.

I appreciate the desire to do something, but please do some more research. The Mise's Institute has a very interesting newsletter, plus tons of quality information. It would also be a good place to find some arguments to many of the proposed theories I've read here.

Or simply read history prior to 1913 Gold would move around the world causing panics and booms (read depressions and inflation) Banks would fail and depositors would lose their savings Common!

I have read some, perhaps it's been selective. Can you offer some suggestions on specific areas and periods?

The classic example is the panic of 1907. Gold left the country and banks had to call in loans. Then the country was beholden to one man. John Pierpont Morgan

Exactly, but solve the overall banking problem you become Bank Owner-Voters, for many more people will come to your side when you are proactive (for “new” Business & Government solutions), instead of reactive (against “old” Business & Government solutions), which is why what we most immediately need is a comprehensive “new” strategy that implements all our various socioeconomic demands at the same time, regardless of party, and although I'm all in favor of taking down today's ineffective and inefficient Top 10% Management System of Business & Government, there's only one way to do it – by fighting bankers as bankers ourselves; that is, using a Focused Direct Democracy organized according to our current Occupations & Generations. Consequently, I have posted a 1-page Summary of the Strategically Weighted Policies, Organizational Operating Structures, and Tactical Investment Procedures necessary to do this at:




because we need 100,000 “support clicks” at AmericansElect.org to support a Presidential Candidate -- such as any given political opportunist you'd like to draft -- in support of the above bank-focused platform.

Most importantly, remember, as cited in the first link, that as Bank Owner-Voters in your 1 of 48 "new" Business Investment Groups (or "new" Congressional Committees) you become the "new" Congress replacing the "old" Congress according to your current Occupation & Generation, called a Focused Direct Democracy.

Therefore, any Candidate (or Leader) therein, regardless of party, is a straw man, a puppet; it's the STRATEGY – the sequence of steps – that the people organize themselves under, in Military Internet Formation of their Individual Purchasing & Group Investment Power, that's important. In this, sequence is key.

Why? Because there are Natural Social Laws – in mathematical sequence – that are just like Natural Physical Laws, such as the Law of Gravity. You must follow those Natural Social Laws or the result will be Injustice, War, etc.

The FIRST step in Natural Social Law is to CONTROL the Banks as Bank Owner-Voters. If you do not, you will inevitably be UNJUSTLY EXPLOITED by the Top 10% Management Group of Business & Government who have a Legitimate Profit Motive, just like you, to do so.

Consequently, you have no choice but to become Candidates (or Leaders) yourselves as Bank Owner-Voters according to your current Occupation & Generation.

So please JOIN the 2nd link so we can make our support clicks at AmericansElect.org when called for, at exactly the right time, by an e-mail from that group, in support of the above the bank-focused platform. If so, then you will see and feel how your goals can be accomplished within the above strategy as a “new” Candidate (or Leader) of your current Occupation & Generation.
