Critical Thinking's research and analysis reveals that control of the global political economy is in the hands of very few rich, powerful people who have accumulated their wealth and power as a result of three fundamental economic flaws.
But, as this short video explains, this pattern of domination of humans is repeated throughout history, irrespective of economic or political systems. Feudalism, dictatorship, theocracy, monarchy or representative democracy (effectively oligarchy) all come down to the same thing, domination and exploitation of the majority by a narrow, what we've termed, Structural Elite. They are farmers and we are their livestock - politicians, public servants and other technocrats are just elevated cattle, granted privileges and immunity for doing the bidding of the Structural Elite.
At the core of this Structural Elite are eight banking families and their control of money is the biggest obstacle to change.
Based on a book by Professor Richard Werner, a visiting researcher at the Bank of Japan during the 90s crash, during which the stock market dropped by 80% and house prices by up to 84%. The film uncovers the real cause of this extraordinary period in recent Japanese history.
Making extensive use of archival footage and TV appearances of Richard Werner from the time, the viewer is guided to a new understanding of what makes the world tick. And discovers that what happened in Japan almost 25 years ago is again repeating itself in Europe. To understand how, why and by whom, watch this film.
Are we currently in the midst of the "endgame", ie. the final disintegration of the global economic system? Market turmoil, precipitated initially by sharp falls in the Chinese stockmarket, suggests we may be. The system is destined to collapse and arguably has been in a "slow motion train crash" since the onset of the crisis in 2008. Nothing has changed since to address the system's inherent flaws and the stresses are as great, or even greater, than immediately prior to the 2008 subprime crisis. The global economic system has been on "life-support" since then with central banks propping up markets and inflating speculative bubbles with massive quantities of money created from nothing.
Those claiming signs of economic growth have been "clutching at straws" and low level panic is taking hold in markets. Whose fingerprints are all over this crisis? The Structural Elite and the banking dynasties.
It is not people at the root of this crisis but the system itself. We need system change, not regime change.
