Speaking of power...

The Financial Tsunami: The Financial Foundation of the American Century.

Toward the end of the article is this:

In his book, Rockefeller declared the establishment’s determination to roll back concessions grudgingly granted by the wealthy and powerful during the Great Depression. Rockefeller issued the call in 1973, long before Jimmy Carter or Margaret Thatcher came to office to implement it. He called for a “deliberate, consistent, long-term policy to decentralize and privatize many government functions…to diffuse power throughout the society.” 10 The latter was a witting deception as his intent was not to diffuse power, but just the opposite—to concentrate that economic and banking power into the hands of a tight-knit elite.

I just don't get it. To want that kind of power is just not something I can wrap my head around, especially when it's purpose is "global domination." This is the stuff of the "evil-genius bad-guy" in comic books with which the "super-hero" does battle to thwart his plans.

Unfortunately, we have no super-heroes to save the day. What we have is a mess and a royal ecological disaster coming our way. The only "heroes" we can look to is ourselves and friendly neighbors. Our purpose will be to exit out of this nightmare of enslaved existence into a new paradigm based on the real value of life, health, heart, and family--in short, restore our lost humanity.
