The Money Lie
economists are a most significant example. It is probably not an
accident that in the United States at the end of the nineteenth century
the economists were the first professional analysts to be “broken in,”
in a battle that defined the limits of academic freedom in universities.
The academic system would from that point on impose a strict
operational separation between inquiry and theorizing as acceptable and
social reform as unacceptable .
Any academic wishing to
preserve her position understood what this meant. As a side product,
academics became virtuosos at nurturing a self-image of importance
despite this fatal limitation on their societal relevance, with verbiage
such as: The truth is our most powerful weapon, the pen is mightier
than the sword, a good idea can change the world, reason will take us
out of darkness, etc.
So the enterprise of economics became
devoted to masking the lie about money. Bad lending practice, price
fixing and monopolistic controls were the main threats to the natural
justice of a free market, and occurred only as errors in a mostly
self-regulating system that could be moderated via adjustments of
interest rates and other “safeguards.”
Meanwhile no mainstream
economic theory makes any mention of the fact that money itself is
created wholesale in a fractional reserve banking system owned by secret
private interests given a licence to fabricate and deliver debt that
must be paid back (with interest) from the real economy, thereby
continuously concentrating ownership and power over all local and
The rest of us have to earn money rather than
simply fabricate it and we never own more when we die. The middle
class either pays rent or a mortgage. Wage slavery is perpetuated and
degraded in stable areas and installed in its most vicious varieties in
all newly conquered territories.
It is quite remarkable that the largest exploitation scam (private money creation as debt
) ever enacted and applied to the entire planet does not figure in economic theories.
are so busy modeling the ups and downs of profits, returns, employment
figures, stock values, and the benefits of mergers for mid-level
exploiters that they don’t notice their avoidance of the foundational
elements. They model the construction schedule while refusing to
acknowledge that the terrain is an earthquake zone with vultures
Meanwhile the financiers write and re-write
the rules themselves and again this process does not figure in
macroeconomic theories. The only human element that economists consider
in their “predictive” mathematical models is low-level consumer
behaviour, not high-level system manipulation. Corruption is the norm
yet it does not figure. The economies, cultures and infrastructures of
nations are wilfully destroyed in order to enslave via new and larger
national debts for generations into the future while economists forecast
alleged catastrophic consequences of defaulting on these debts…
Management tools for the bosses and smoke and mirrors for the rest of us – thank you expert economists.
The Medicine is Health Lie
all heard some MD (medical doctor) interviewed on the radio
gratuitously make the bold proposal that life expectancy has increased
thanks to modern medicine. Nothing could be further from the truth.
expectancy has increased in First World countries thanks to a
historical absence of civil and territorial wars, better and more
accessible food, less work and non-work accidents, and better overall
living and working conditions. The single strongest indicator of
personal health within and between countries is economy status,
irrespective of access to medical technology and pharmaceuticals.
worse than that because medicine actually has a negative impact on
health. Medical errors (not counting misattributed deaths from correctly
administered “treatments”) are the third leading cause of death in the
US, after heart disease and cancer, and there is a large gap between
this conservative underestimate in the number of medical error deaths
and the fourth leading cause of death . Since medicine can do little
for heart disease and cancer and since medicine has only a small
statistical positive impact in the area of trauma interventions, we
conclude that public health would increase if all MDs simply
disappeared. And think of all the time loss and stress that sick people
One of the most dangerous places in society is the
hospital. Medical errors include misdiagnoses, bad prescriptions,
prescriptions of medications that should not be combined, unnecessary
surgery, unnecessary or badly administered treatments including
chemotherapy, radiation treatment, and corrective surgeries.
lie extends to the myth that MDs anywhere near understand the human
body. And this well guarded lie encourages us to put our faith in
doctors, thereby opening the door to a well orchestrated profit bonanza
for big pharma.
The first thing that Doctors Without Borders (MSF
volunteers need to do in order to contribute significantly in disaster
zones is to “forget their medical training” and get to work on the
priority tasks at hand: water, food, shelter, and disease propagation
prevention; not vaccinating, or operating, or prescribing medication…
Public health comes from safety, stability, social justice, and economic
buying power, not MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) units and
These bone heads routinely apply unproven
“recommended treatments” and prescribe dangerous drugs for everything
from high blood pressure from a sedentary lifestyle and bad nutrition,
to apathy at school, to anxiety in public places, to post-adolescence

side effects from the latter drugs.
In professional yet
nonetheless remarkable reversals of logic, doctors prescribe drugs to
remove symptoms that are risk indicators rather than address the causes
of the risks, thereby only adding to the assault on the body.
unbelievable the number that medicine has done on us: Just one more way
to keep us stupid (ignorant about our own bodies) and artificially
dependent on the control hierarchy. Economically disadvantaged people
don’t die from not having access to medical “care” – They die from the
life constraints and liabilities directly resulting from poverty. How
many MDs have stated this obvious truth on the radio?
ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE LIES
via resource extraction, land use expropriation, and wage slavery
creation and maintenance are devastating to indigenous populations and
to the environment on continental scales. It is therefore vital to
cover up the crimes under a veil of expert analysis and policy
development diversion. A valued class of service intellectuals here is
composed of the environmental scientists and consultants.
scientists naively and knowingly work hand in hand with
finance-corporate shysters, mainstream media, politicians, and state and
international bureaucrats to mask real problems and to create profit
opportunities for select power elites. Here are notable examples of
Freon and Ozone
Do you know of anyone who has been killed by the ozone hole?
1987 Montreal Protocol banning chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) is considered
a textbook case where science and responsible governance lead to a
landmark treaty for the benefit of the Earth and all its inhabitants.
How often does that happen?
At about the time that the DuPont patent on Freon(TM),
the most widely used CFC refrigerant in the world, was expiring the
mainstream media picked up on otherwise arcane scientific observations
and hypotheses about ozone concentration in the upper atmosphere near
There resulted an international mobilization to
criminalize CFCs and DuPont developed and patented a replacement
refrigerant that was promptly certified for use.
A Nobel Prize in
chemistry was awarded in 1995 for a laboratory demonstration that CFCs
could deplete ozone in simulated atmospheric conditions. In 2007 it was
shown that the latter work may have been seriously flawed by
overestimating the depletion rate by an order of magnitude, thereby
invalidating the proposed mechanism for CFC-driven ozone depletion .
Not to mention that any laboratory experiment is somewhat different
from the actual upper atmosphere... Is the Nobel tainted by media and
special interest lobbying?
It gets better. It turns out that the
Dupont replacement refrigerant is, not surprisingly, not as inert as
was Freon. As a result it corrodes refrigerator cycle components at a
much faster rate. Where home refrigerators and freezers lasted forever,
they now burn out in eight years or so. This has caused catastrophic
increases in major appliance contributions to land fill sites across
North America; spurred on by the green propaganda for obscenely
efficient electrical consumptions of the new appliances under closed
door (zero use) conditions.
In addition, we have been frenzied
into avoiding the sun, the UV index keeps our fear of cancer and our
dependence on the medical establishment alive, and a new sun block
industry a la vampire protection league has been spawned. And of course
star university chemists are looking for that perfect sun block
molecule that can be patented by big pharma. And as soon as it is, I
predict a surge in media interviews with skin cancer experts…
Acid Rain on the Boreal Forest
the seventies it was acid rain. Thousands of scientists from around
the world (Northern Hemisphere) studied this “most pressing
environmental problem on the planet.” The boreal forest is the largest
ecosystem on Earth and its millions of lakes were reportedly being
killed by acid from the sky.
Coal burning plants spewed out
sulphides into the atmosphere causing the rain to be acidic. The acid
rain was postulated to acidify the soils and lakes in the boreal forest
but the acidification was virtually impossible to detect. Pristine
lakes in the hearts of national parks had to be studied for decades in
attempts to detect a statistically significant acidification.
the lakes and their watersheds were being destroyed by the cottage
industry, agriculture, forestry, mining, over fishing and tourism. None
of the local and regional destruction was studied or exposed. Instead,
scientists turned their gaze to distant coal burning plants,
atmospheric distribution, and postulated chemical reactions occurring in
rain droplets. One study found that the spawning in aquarium of one
fish species was extremely sensitive to acidity (pH). Long treatises
about cation charge balance and transport were written and attention was
diverted away from the destruction on the ground towards a sanitized
problem of atmospheric chemistry that was the result of
industrialization and progress rather than being caused by identifiable
As a physicist and Earth scientist turned
environmental scientist, I personally read virtually every single
scientific paper written about acid rain and could not find an example
of a demonstrated negative impact on lakes or forests from acid rain.
In my opinion, contrary to the repeated claims of the scientist authors,
the research on acid rain demonstrates that acid rain could not
possibly have been the problem.
This model of
elite-forces-coordinated exploiter whitewashing was to play itself out
on an even grander scale only decades later with global warming.
Global Warming as a Threat to Humankind
2005 and 2006, several years before the November 2009 Climategate
scandal burst the media bubble that buoyed public opinion towards
acceptance of carbon credits, cap and trade, and the associated trillion
dollar finance bonanza that may still come to pass, I exposed the
global warming cooptation scam in an essay that Alexander Cockburn writing in The Nation
called "one of the best essays on greenhouse myth-making from a left perspective" .
essay prompted David F. Noble to research the question and write The
Corporate Climate Coup to expose how the media embrace followed the
finance sector’s realization of the unprecedented potential for revenues
that going green could represent .
