This is page eight of part one of four in my series of articles on Zeitgeist: Addendum. Please refer to the introduction if you were lead to this page.

And it is the fear of losing assets, coupled with the struggle to keep up with the perpetual debt and inflation inherent in the system, compounded by the inescapable scarcity within the money supply itself created by the interest that can never be repaid,  that keeps the wage slave in line,  running on the hamster wheel with the millions of others,  in effect powering an empire that truly benefits only the elite at the top of the pyramid. For, at the end of day, who are you really working for? The banks. Money is created in a bank and invariably ends up in a bank. They are the true masters, along with corporations and governments they support.

Physical slavery requires people to be housed and fed. Economic slavery requires the people to feed and house themselves.

It is one of the most ingenious scams for social manipulation ever created and, at its core, it is an invisible war against the population. Debt is the weapon used to conquer and enslave societies and interest is its prime ammunition.

And, as the majority walks around oblivious to this reality, the banks, in collusion with governments and corporations, continue to perfect and expand their tactics of economic warfare, spawning new bases such as the World Bank and International Monetary Fund while also inventing a new type of soldier,  the birth of the economic hit man.

I'm not sure if Peter Joseph is willingly ignoring the fact I've pointed out over and over or he's just insane. Did it not cross his mind that even without debt, without central banking, capitalism still requires people to sell their labor and compete in the labor market? Capitalism does indeed create scarcity with commodities, because without it the exchange of labor for commodities would be even more off balance than it already is - one of the reasons it's off balance now is because of increasing automation.

Banks are not the true masters as I've shown, because regardless of their existence people must still sell labor on the open market. I think I've stated this at least 6 times so far, and the reason I keep stating it is because if I don't, some people who read this will still argue that if we just had decentralized banking, gold back dollars, and removed the federal reserve we'd have a heroic capitalist utopia.

Capital, not debt, is what's used to conquer and enslave societies; people working in sweat shops don't have loans, don't have debt, they work because of a small amount of capital. The movie has the idea completely ass backwards.

Let's continue on to Part II.
