This concise history describes the greatest game in history, so I thought it should be posted on the gaming page.
This is a good, lineal history of the United States Plantation system.
The quotes are nicely placed, with those by the criminals Wilson and Churchill most incisive.
The rarely discussed issue of the Wall Street attempt to overthrow FDR and set up a fascist State is covered from 15:00. Riveros’ reading of Smedley Butler’s speech at 19:00. Smedley Butler’s War is a Racket is essentially an antiwar pamphlet that every human should read. I have reviewed Butler’s book under this title ‘35 Million Shoes’
This is the first time I have been satisfied with a history of the evolution of the U.S. Dollar.
This is too important not to listen to the whole thing. It is amazing that humans are so stupid we almost universally believe in debt-based currency rather than value-based currency despite the damning semantics of the choice. The one place I take issue o here is Rivero’s contention that the U.S. was not founded as a debt-based society. It was, just not in a financial sense. It inherited, affirmed and perpetuated slavery laws for all races, which were based on real or perceived debts to the owners of humans. Up until the 1830s, men and women were selling their children into slavery to pay of debts, sometimes even bar tabs.
