VALUING IS CREATING: HEAR IT, YE CREATING ONES! VALUATION ITSELF IS THE TREASURE AND JEWEL OF THE VALUED THINGS.

OLDER IS THE PLEASURE IN THE HERD THAN THE PLEASURE IN THE EGO: AND AS LONG AS THE GOOD CONSCIENCE IS FOR THE HERD, THE BAD CONSCIENCE ONLY SAITH: EGO.

VERILY, THE CRAFTY EGO, THE LOVELESS ONE, THAT SEEKETH ITS ADVANTAGE IN THE ADVANTAGE OF MANY — IT IS NOT THE ORIGIN OF THE HERD, BUT ITS RUIN.

LOVING ONES, WAS IT ALWAYS, AND CREATING ONES, THAT CREATED GOOD AND BAD. FIRE OF LOVE GLOWETH IN THE NAMES OF ALL THE VIRTUES, AND FIRE OF WRATH.

CHANGE OF VALUES — THAT IS, CHANGE OF THE CREATING ONES. ALWAYS DOTH HE DESTROY WHO HATH TO BE A CREATOR.

Banking with hitler


371 Swiss banks stand accused of collaborating with the Nazis during World War II. This was suspected at the time by by U.S. Secretary of Treasury Henry Morgenthau, who began investigating this collaboration. He found the Swiss were not alone. His archives reveal that both British and American bankers continued to do business with Hitler, even as Germany was invading Europe and bombing London.

This investigative film shows in detail the roles played by the Anglo-German banking clique. Key members of the Bank of England together with their German counterparts established the BIS, the Bank for International Settlement, which laundered the plundered gold of Europe. On its board were key Nazis such as Walther Funk and Hjalamar Schact The president of BIS was an American, Thomas McKittrick, who readily socialized with leading Nazis. Not only the BIS, but other allied banks worked hand in hand with the Nazis. One of the biggest American banks kept a branch open in Occupied Paris and, with full knowledge of the managers in the U.S., froze the accounts of French Jews. Deprived of money to escape France, many ended up in death camps.

When Pres. Roosevelt died in April 1945, Morganthau lost his protector and his crusade against the banks came to an end. He was further weakened when men in his department were accused of being Communists during the McCarthy era. This incredible story contains interviews with surviving members of banking families and Morganthaus investigative team as well as newly found archive material.

Is the fabric of industrialized society starting to unravel? Highly complex civilizations are more vulnerable to collapse

by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, NaturalNews Editor

(NaturalNews) This is one of the most important trends you'll see in 2012 and beyond: Global supply lines are breaking down. The just-in-time system of deliveries on tap is deteriorating. Have you noticed how often the products or parts you need are backordered or delayed? That's what I'm talking about.

Try to order 3TB hard drives for data storage. You'll discover they're all back-ordered. When you order items from Amazon.com that are shipped by third party companies, they're often delayed due to sourcing problems. Even our own NaturalNews Store has suffered from sourcing challenges, where customer demand is much higher than the available supply, and the suppliers sometimes can't get us products in a timely manner.

This issue is especially notable across the firearms industry, where record firearm sales have pushed gun manufacturers way beyond their normal capacities. Not only was Black Friday the top day for gun sales in the history of the USA, but I spoke with the owner of a local Austin gun shop just a couple of days ago, and he told me that on the Thursday and Friday before Christmas his shop was completely slammed with customers, and many of the products they wanted were simply out of stock or unavailable.

Something is happening across the planet with all this: Supply lines are getting thin and starting to crack. You've probably noticed it when you're trying to buy car parts or appliance parts. Even many service companies are thinly staffed these days. How long does it take now to get a repair man for your furnace? Or a plumber? Remember when it used to be same-day or next-day service? Now it's often 2-3 days (or even more) before somebody can fix the problem, and even then, they often need parts that have to be ordered.


The complexity of modern society is starting to rupture
 
All this is a worrisome sign to anyone who understands even a little bit about the complexities of modern society. Even to build something as simple as a water bottle, a manufacturer must be able to depend on a very long and highly complex chain of suppliers who individually specialize in metals, plastics or o-ring manufacturing. Then there's the logo printing which requires yet another supply chain of ink specialists and printing equipment. While a stainless steel water bottle may seem simple, it's actually the culmination of thousands of years of specialized knowledge, processes and equipment.

Even manufacturing a pencil is a modern miracle. Try it yourself sometime and you'll discover just how complex a pencil really is. You need sources of metals, rubber, graphite, paint, wood, and all the specialized manufacturing equipment and expertise that goes with it.

Why does this matter? Understand this hugely important point:

The more complex a society becomes, the more the loss of efficiency in just one small area of service or manufacturing ripples across the entire economy, magnifying its negative impact.

You can't build a car, for example, without the microchips manufactured in China. Sure, you can put together the entire car -- minus the microchips -- but all you have is a 3,000-pound piece of junk sitting on the assembly line. Without the microchips, the car is useless, and increasingly those microchips all come from China or Japan. This is even true across the military, where red alerts have been issued recently about the strategic vulnerability of military gear that relies on microchips from China. 
(http://www.wnd.com/?pageId=321477)

Suppose the microchips you need happen to show up, but then you then have a problem with rubber from Sri Lanka. Most Americans have absolutely no clue how much rubber they need to survive in modern society. The average vehicle contains over 500 pounds of rubber parts, all of which are 100% dependant on international rubber producers 
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Natura...).

Without rubber, in fact, modern society grinds to a halt. It's one of the most important strategic natural resources in the world, yet barely anyone thinks about it. Without rubber, you would have no transportation (not even bicycles). No trains, no trucks, no cars and no airplanes. A loss of rubber would also hit medical supplies and agricultural equipment in a huge way. Goodbye mechanized farming...

So even a tiny disruption in this crucial global resource could be devastating to the global economy. Rest assured, folks, that if you could read all the secret military documents at the Pentagon, and you could find a report on the world's "most important strategic resources," right underneath OIL, you would find RUBBER. (And no, the synthetic stuff isn't a viable replacement...)


The collapse ripple
 
The point is that a highly complex society has many points of failure that individually impact the entire web of complexity. Lose rubber and you've lost your entire transportation sector. Lose oil and much the same happens. Lose your source of microchips and you have to revert back to pre-1980's technology. Lose your manufacturing base -- which has already happened in America -- and you have no capability to start building the stuff you need in your own country anymore.

In World War II, America turned its car factories into tank factories and cranked out Armored Personnel Carriers, B-17 bombers, tracked vehicles and Jeep transport vehicles. Today, America's automobile manufacturing has been gutted to the core. All the machine shops have been offshored to Asia. A new generation of Americans has grown up with little or no knowledge of how to actually build anything other than Legos. The entire culture of innovative machining and metals fabrication has been all but lost (not to mention textiles).


What's behind these supply line failures? 
 
Criminal banksThere's a reason why supply lines are getting dangerously thin in America: Easy credit is disappearing. The failure of the global banking system is causing a trickle-down effect of decreased capital across the business sector. This, in turn, causes businesses to decrease their inventories and wait for orders to come in before manufacturing anything. So instead of excess supply sitting around, waiting to be delivered, more and more companies are operating on a "you order first, and then we'll make it" basis.

Capital is hard to come by for honest businesses, you see. Sure, if you're a criminal bankster like Jon Corzine, scamming the taxpayers out of billions (or trillions!) of dollars, you get free bailout money from the corrupt criminal enablers known as "members of Congress." But if you're an honest, hardworking American trying to run an honest business supplying real goods to business customers, you get royally screwed with high taxes, heavy banking fees, and a routine denial of operating credit. So you scratch by, doing the best you can with what you've got, even as the government is eroding the value of the Federal Reserve notes (dollars) you've worked so hard to earn.

Everywhere across the economy, honest businesses are getting hammered while the big money goes out to military contractors, weapons manufacturers, anti-terrorism security companies and others who have the right buddies in the right hallways in Washington. An economy that used to be based on manufacturing productivity and abundance is now based on false terrorism driving what is essentially a war economy.

That war economy, by the way, is just a few short years away from total default. It's the oldest story in history: Empire invades foreign nations, empire conquers foreign nations, then the empire goes broke trying to pay for its ever-expanding military to control those foreign nations. Empire collapses into the dark corners of history and becomes a lesson for the next generation which will usually make the same mistake anyway, because humans have a short memory and don't really understand what history means.

Do not fool yourself into thinking America isn't headed down this path right now. With the coming banking failures, the currency devaluation and the ever-expanding costs of running a false war (complete with home-grown false flag terror attacks to keep everybody scared into blind obedience), America's economy is headed for its own inevitable catastrophe, at which point you can fully expect supply line disruptions to be frequent and large-scale.


If you truly understand complex societies, you will prepare now
 
For a while after the collapse, it will be impossible to buy many items, including many food staples and possibly even fuel. Those who do not prepare for supply line disruptions will probably be weeded out of the human gene pool, earning their own place in history as examples of a failed genetic experiment that was ultimately incapable of adapting to a rapidly-changing environment.

In nature, when the climate rapidly changes, the only animals that survive are those with adaptive skills, mobility and backup resources (squirrels store food for a reason). In human society, when the mechanized production climate of readily-available foods, goods and services suddenly disappears -- even for a short while -- you will observe a sudden and shocking shift in the human gene pool towards those who have the foresight to plan and prepare rather than those who live day by day, partying, consuming, copulating and laughing it up.

As usual, I urge NaturalNews to be adaptive and be prepared. When the day comes that you actually need this wisdom, it will be too late to try to prepare. This is a test of survival that must be won in advance.


Why does the U.S. government stockpile food, medical supplies and weapons?
 
 
Remember: The U.S. government stockpiles massive quantities of food, weapons, ammunition, communications equipment and medical supplies. These are held in huge underground storage facilities (caves) carved out of pure granite. Watch the video to see for yourself:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T24L...

By the way, I have firsthand knowledge of these caves. Being from Kansas City, I used to drive by these caves quite frequently, witnessing 18-wheeler rigs pulling in and out of these cave entrances, right off the highway. This has been going on for decades. They have underground cities for the storage of supplies. It's not a conspiracy theory, it's an admitted historical fact.

Ever wonder why the government bothers to do this? For what purpose does the government feel it needs to be prepared with years of supplies while, at the same time, telling the American citizens they only need enough supplies to last a few days?

That's not a flippant question. If you answer it honestly, you will be ahead of 99% of the rest of the population which now faces a precarious future in a highly complex society that's already starting to tear apart at the seams.

OCCUPY THE FOOD SYSTEM

by Jim Goodman
December 12, 2011
from CommonDreams Website


Farmers have been through this before - our lives and livelihoods falling under corporate control.
It has been an ongoing process:
---consolidation of markets
--- consolidation of seed companies
---an ever-widening gap between our costs of production and the prices we receive

Some of us are catching on, getting the picture of the real enemy.

The "99 percent" are awakening to the realization that their lives have fallen under corporate control as well. Add up the jobs lost, the health benefits whittled away, and the unions busted, and the bill for Wall Street's self-centered greed is taking a toll.

It's not the immigrants, the homeless, the unions, or the farmers that have looted the economy and driven us to the brink of another Great Depression. The public is catching on.

When Occupy Wall Street (OWS) welcomed the Farmers March to Zuccotti Park in New York on December 4, a natural rural-urban alliance - the Food Justice Movement, gardeners, farmers, seed growers, health care workers, and union members - was formed at Wall Street's back door.

Change can come only when you confront your oppressors directly on their turf. That makes them uncomfortable, it gets attention, and it wakes up the distracted public.

The Occupy movement is doing exactly what the prominent student activist Mario Savio spoke of in 1964, when he declared:

"There comes a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious, makes you so sick at heart, that you can't take part, you can't even passively take part and you've got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels, upon the apparatus and you've got to make it stop - and you've got to indicate to the people who run it, the people who own it, that unless you're free, the machine will be prevented from running at all."

The people who are now forming a movement to occupy the food system agree with this sentiment too.

The food system isn't working. People eat too many calories, or too few. There's too much processed food on our plates. Too many Americans lack access to food that is fresh, nutritious, and locally grown. This is the food system that corporate America has given us. It's the food system it's selling to the rest of the world.

Clearly, this system doesn't have the best interests of the public at heart. Nor does it consider the interests of farmers or farm workers or animals or the environment. It has one interest: profit.

We all have to wake up.

Farmers need access to farm credit, a fair mortgage on their land, fair prices for the food they produce, and seeds that aren't patented by Monsanto or other big corporations. Consumers need to be able to purchase healthy and local food, and to earn a living wage.

The parallels are pointedly exact. It may be the Wall Street banks that are controlling our lives, or it may be Monsanto, Cargill, DuPont, Kraft, or Tyson's. The system isn't working.

Why do agribusiness profits continue to grow while farmers struggle to pay their costs of production and more Americans go hungry? We can't feed our people if we are forced to feed the bank accounts of the 1 percent.

Agribusinesses insist that we have the responsibility of feeding the world. Growing more genetically engineered corn and soy isn't going to feed the world, nor will it correct the flaws in our food system; clearly it has created many of them.

The world can feed itself, without corporate America's science-experiment crops and expensive chemicals. The world's people can feed themselves if we let them - if we stop the corporate land grabs and let them develop their own economies for their own benefit.

The message from the Occupy movement needn't and shouldn't be a specific set of demands. It should be about asking the right questions.

Wall Street, the government, and corporate America need to answer one basic question:

Why did you sell us down the river?

War On Iran Has Already Begun. Act Before It Threatens All Of Us

Escalation of the covert US-Israeli campaign against Tehran risks a global storm. Opposition has to get more serious

By Seumas Milne

December 08, 2011 " The Guardian" -- They don't give up. After a decade of blood-drenched failure in Afghanistan and Iraq, violent destabilisation of Pakistan and Yemen, the devastation of Lebanon and slaughter in Libya, you might hope the US and its friends had had their fill of invasion and intervention in the Muslim world.

It seems not. For months the evidence has been growing that a US-Israeli stealth war against Iran has already begun, backed by Britain and France. Covert support for armed opposition groups has spread into a campaign of assassinations of Iranian scientists, cyber warfare, attacks on military and missile installations, and the killing of an Iranian general, among others.

The attacks are not directly acknowledged, but accompanied by intelligence-steered nods and winks as the media are fed a stream of hostile tales – the most outlandish so far being an alleged Iranian plot to kill the Saudi ambassador to the US – and the western powers ratchet up pressure for yet more sanctions over Iran's nuclear programme.

The British government's decision to take the lead in imposing sanctions on all Iranian banks and pressing for an EU boycott of Iranian oil triggered the trashing of its embassy in Tehran by demonstrators last week and subsequent expulsion of Iranian diplomats from London.

It's a taste of how the conflict can quickly escalate, as was the downing of a US spyplane over Iranian territory at the weekend. What one Israeli official has called a "new kind of war" has the potential to become a much more old-fashioned one that would threaten us all.

Last month the Guardian was told by British defence ministry officials that if the US brought forward plans to attack Iran (as they believed it might), it would "seek, and receive, UK military help", including sea and air support and permission to use the ethnically cleansed British island colony of Diego Garcia.

Whether the officials' motive was to soften up public opinion for war or warn against it, this was an extraordinary admission: the Britain military establishment fully expects to take part in an unprovoked US attack on Iran – just as it did against Iraq eight years ago.

What was dismissed by the former foreign secretary Jack Straw as "unthinkable", and for David Cameron became an option not to be taken "off the table", now turns out to be as good as a done deal if the US decides to launch a war that no one can seriously doubt would have disastrous consequences. But there has been no debate in parliament and no mainstream political challenge to what Straw's successor, David Miliband, this week called the danger of "sleepwalking into a war with Iran". That's all the more shocking because the case against Iran is so spectacularly flimsy.

There is in fact no reliable evidence that Iran is engaged in a nuclear weapons programme. The latest International Atomic Energy Agency report once again failed to produce a smoking gun, despite the best efforts of its new director general, Yukiya Amano – described in a WikiLeaks cable as "solidly in the US court on every strategic decision".

As in the runup to the invasion of Iraq, the strongest allegations are based on "secret intelligence" from western governments. But even the US national intelligence director, James Clapper, has accepted that the evidence suggests Iran suspended any weapons programme in 2003 and has not reactivated it.

The whole campaign has an Alice in Wonderland quality about it. Iran, which says it doesn't want nuclear weapons, is surrounded by nuclear-weapon states: the US – which also has forces in neighbouring Afghanistan and Iraq, as well as military bases across the region – Israel, Russia, Pakistan and India.

Iran is of course an authoritarian state, though not as repressive as western allies such as Saudi Arabia. But it has invaded no one in 200 years. It was itself invaded by Iraq with western support in the 1980s, while the US and Israel have attacked 10 countries or territories between them in the past decade. Britain exploited, occupied and overthrew governments in Iran for over a century. So who threatens who exactly?

As Israel's defence minister, Ehud Barak, said recently, if he were an Iranian leader he would "probably" want nuclear weapons. Claims that Iran poses an "existential threat" to Israel because President Ahmadinejad said the state "must vanish from the page of time" bear no relation to reality. Even if Iran were to achieve a nuclear threshold, as some suspect is its real ambition, it would be in no position to attack a state with upwards of 300 nuclear warheads, backed to the hilt by the world's most powerful military force.

The real challenge posed by Iran to the US and Israel has been as an independent regional power, allied to Syria and the Lebanese Hezbollah and Palestinian Hamas movements. As US troops withdraw from Iraq, Saudi Arabia fans sectarianism, and Syrian opposition leaders promise a break with Iran, Hezbollah and Hamas, the threat of proxy wars is growing across the region.

A US or Israeli attack on Iran would turn that regional maelstrom into a global firestorm. Iran would certainly retaliate directly and through allies against Israel, the US and US Gulf client states, and block the 20% of global oil supplies shipped through the Strait of Hormuz. Quite apart from death and destruction, the global economic impact would be incalculable.

All reason and common sense militate against such an act of aggression. Meir Dagan, the former head of Israel's Mossad, said last week it would be a "catastrophe". Leon Panetta, the US defence secretary, warned that it could "consume the Middle East in confrontation and conflict that we would regret".

There seems little doubt that the US administration is deeply wary of a direct attack on Iran. But in Israel, Barak has spoken of having less than a year to act; Binyamin Netanyahu, the prime minister, has talked about making the "right decision at the right moment"; and the prospects of drawing the US in behind an Israeli attack have been widely debated in the media.

Maybe it won't happen. Maybe the war talk is more about destabilisation than a full-scale attack. But there are undoubtedly those in the US, Israel and Britain who think otherwise. And the threat of miscalculation and the logic of escalation could tip the balance decisively. Unless opposition to an attack on Iran gets serious, this could become the most devastating Middle East war of all.
