John C. Calhoun, the 7th Vice President of the United States, once said that “a power has risen up in the government greater than the people themselves, consisting of many, and various, and powerful interests, combined into one mass, and held together by the cohesive power of the vast surplus in the banks.”
He’s not the only person to have done so; countless politicians have told us the same thing, including presidents. You can see 10 examples in an article we published a few months ago here
It is becoming apparent that there is a government within our government, operating without our knowledge or consent – a government which, as Woodrow Wilson, the 28th president of the United States, explained to us, is “so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that [we] had better not speak above [our] breath when [we] speak in condemnation of it.”
This ‘secret government’ relies on the manipulation of our consciousness and our perception of ‘what is’ in order to brainwash us into mass consumerism, a false sense of patriotism, and more.
Edward Bernays, known as the father of public relations, sums it up best:
The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of.
Today, it’s no secret that a small group of elite people, the corporations they run, and the big banks who own them, have gained control over our healthcare, economics, education, food and energy supply, and pretty much every other conceivable aspect of our lives. This, again, is done by controlling the world of finance .
Below is a video that illustrates what’s happening today. We are slowly waking up to the corruption, fraud, greed, and secrecy which pervade our society. One example would be pharmaceutical fraud, for which we now have extensive concrete evidence, to the point that ‘big parma’ is no longer a conspiracy theory. You can read more about that, and see examples of it in practice, here.
Even presidential candidate Bernie Sanders admits to how deep our problems run, having revealed on national television during a debate with fellow candidate Hillary Clinton that elections are essentially meaningless, because whoever is elected will be powerless to effect any change that the big banks and corporate American oppose.
