1.0 out of 5 stars Conspiracy is all there has ever been., 2 Sept. 2012
My own conspiracy to obtain positive votes is probably not working......although I have accrued one more endorsement recently bringing my score to 2 out of 21. I'm encouraged actually because my review has obviously got into the brain boxes of at least 21 unrealistic people and even now is wreaking havoc amongst their belief systems at an unconscious level. Words are alive and have an intent of their own you know!

The bulk of my original review follows, but please do check UPDATES as I try to add more serious conspiracies as I spot them.

In Voodoo Histories, Arronovitch implies that conspiracy theorizing is the pastime of inferior people. I would like to point out to him and the reader that, ever since we, as a species, evolved to think for ourselves, conspiracy to defraud is all there has ever been. You can be absolutely certain that 'the powers that be' and 'vested interest' are conspiring against 'we the people' at this very moment when you are reading this.

Politicians routinely conspire against us. You only have to think of the expenses scandal. Our membership of the EU involves a massive conspiracy. Prime minister Ted Heath committed treason in 1972 when he took us into the Common Market knowing that it was more than a trading agreement. Our own Queen stood by and watched as successive traitorous prime ministers overrode the now automatic Royal Assent and signed 6 EU Treaties effectively signing away the sovereignty and independence of this country to unelected and unaccountable bureaucrats in Brussels. This conspiracy has resulted in the loss of our country to an elite group of people with a globalist agenda. The conspiracy and deception against the interests of the British people has been so mind bogglingly enormous that we should give thanks for those conspiracy theorists that do the in-depth research to expose it. If justice were done, it would be an 'off with their heads' moment.

Political parties are lobbied and funded by the commercial banks, the multinationals and the wealthy. For 'fund' read bribe. The loyalties of politicians have been bought and the latter continuously conspire to keep in place an economic system that is designed to siphon wealth from the poor to the rich. If you doubt this, just purchase the wonderful DVD 'Four Horsemen' right here from amazon.

Arronovitch debunks the conspiracy theorizing around the American twin towers attack of 9/11. But you don't have to be a conspiracy theorist to suspect that the twin towers was an inside job. Just do a few minutes rational independant thinking. Each tower was hit by a jet liner above the seventieth floor. The jet fuel was consumed within seconds leaving fires burning. After around 50 minutes, both towers collapsed at free fall speed down into their own foot print. Both towers had a huge multiple steel column vertical core designed to resist two simultaneous jet liner attacks. The buildings below the impacts would not have been heated sufficiently to melt steel columns. Yet the buildings collapsed straight downwards against the resistance of the lower intact structure. Archetects, engineers and demolition experts, together with people capable of rational thought, realise that this type of collapse would have been impossible. Check out some well made documentaries on Youtube by searching '9/11 inside job'. A good case is presented that government agencies were aware of the coming attack and assisted the collapse of the twin towers and building 7 with explosive charges. Certainly the free fall collapse of Building 7 shows clearly that that particular building was deliberately `pulled'. Also the conclusions of Dr Judy Wood in the Youtube videos: `Where did the Towers Go' are worth investigating before rejecting the idea of a government conspiracy. My conclusion is that the American government wanted to use terrorism as an excuse to invade uncooperative and independant Middle Eastern countries with a view to seize assets and make money. Also, the protection of the main Middle Eastern rogue terrorist state, Zionist Israel, was high on the American and British hidden agenda.

Truth with a capital T is always a coin with two sides. Arronovitch has presented one side of the truth about conspiracy theories. My review gives you, the reader, a glimpse of the other side of the coin of Truth. In the interests of 'balance', I would urge you to concider both sides of conspiracy theory and make up your own mind. Be aware that the human mind hates one thing above all else and that is 'The Truth'.

UPDATE: Some conspiracy theories may be incorrect, but Arronovitch is wrong to debunk conspiracy theorizing in general. Being a conspiracy theorist myself, I would contend that there is a secret that western governments, of whatever colour, conspire night and day to keep from the general public. The big secret that politicians will always conspire to keep hidden is that there IS an alternative to `austerity', there is a magic money tree. People need not be so strapped for cash that they cannot pay their mortgages and have to choose between eating or heating during the winter months. Three simple monetary reforms would liberate us all from the boom/bust cycle and IMF/banker imposed Austerity:

1. Ban all government borrowing. Government does not need to borrow one single penny from private banks. Government can itself create money through, either the treasury or through the Bank of England for all infra structure projects. This would be new money that bore no interest and did not need to be repaid at all. There need be no 'deficit' requiring Austerity to squeeze out from the poor and middle classes the repayment to private banks. If inflation became a problem, taxes could be raized a little to extract some money from circulation. Think of the tax break we could all enjoy if government acted, for once, in the public interest. Think about it. If the BOE can create out of thin air 375 billion quid Quantitative Easing to GIVE to the private banks, why can't it as easily create that money in the public interest for issue directly into the economy or to fund Vince Cable's Business Bank? Answer: there is a conspiracy to defraud you and me in favour of banksters. Also, the Maastricht Treaty forbids the issue of money directly into the economy. According to the Treaty, all new money must be issued as interest bearing loans through private banks. If ever there was a reason to leave the EU, this is it! But who knows it? No-one, because we are not allowed to know.

2. Ban Fractional Reserve Lending. Take away from banksters their ability to control the quantity of money in circulation when they make loans at interest. Simples! No more creating money out of thin air for profit. No more usury. No more boom/bust cycles. Banks can no longer lend out money they do not have. People are given to believe that the bank already has the money to lend them before they enter the door of the bank to take out a mortgage or a loan. They don't! Banning FRL will mean that Banks can only lend out depositors money and not digital money that has been counterfeited into extistence out of thin air by the loan agreement......which is not a contract.

3. Create a Public or People's Bank in every county on the model of the Bank of North Dakota USA which has been untouched by the credit crunch. (See Amazon, Ellen Brown's Books, President of the Public Bank Institute USA). Public Banks differ from private banks in that all profits of a Public Bank are recycled back into the local economy as opposed to being skimmed off for use elsewhere in massive fraud as occurs in the City of London. Perhaps you don't think Banks in the City of London conspire to commit fraud? Consider this: If you steal a flat screen TV from Debs in a riot, you will certainly go to jail. But if you rip off the entire world by rigging the Libor Rate or engage in market price fixing before front running stock market bets or miss-selling PPI insurance, you will not be doing porridge. I see a huge conspiracy in all this. If you don't, then I would suggest that you do a little bit of research and thinking.....if your mental faculties are up to the task.

I would also suggest that our utterly corrupt politicians would literally need to be dragged kicking and screaming by the hair before they would even discuss the monetary reforms necessary to liberate us and future generations from debt slavery.

5.0 out of 5 stars Four Horsemen is a must have DVD, 15 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Four Horsemen [DVD] (DVD)
Four Horsemen is a truly marvelous film. It is so important that it should be shown immediately on mainstream TV. But it won't be. Four Horsemen contains information that the privately run banking industry and their politician puppets really really do not want you to know. You will learn from some eminent speakers how the multinationals and private banks, through lobbying and funding political campaigns, have bought politicians who, in turn, have created an economic system that benefits the rich at the expense of we the people. Unbeleivably, our politicians have agreed to decriminalised the activities of bankers and the latter have been released on an orgy of speculative greed, bringing the financial system to its knees. The politicians now expect us pay for it, explaining that there is no alternative. You will also learn how there is an outright banking fraud at the very heart of our economic system - fractional reserve lending. The latter is the ability of banks to create money out of thin air, lend out this fiat digital currency and charge us interest on it. FRL is a legallised fraud, a counterfeiting scam that has had devastating effects on the lives of ordinary people. There is much more in the Four Horsemen and everyone who wants to know how the world really works should have access to the knowledge contained in the film. You will not find this essential knowledge in the TV news or in the newspapers. Its a secret! The Four horsemen is £10.99 which, for some, in these days of unnecessary austerity, might be expensive. Here's how to get it for no extra expense, whilst at the same time striking back at the powers who have sought to keep you in darkness and debt slavery. Simply cancel your newspapers for a few weeks and use the money to get the Four Horsemen. This would be the savvy thing to do if you seek freedom and care about your own future and that of your children. Are you someone who is going to do the right thing?

5.0 out of 5 stars It was a revelation, 19 Jun. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a truly remarkable book. I never imagined that I would read a book on economics, but this book gripped me and I read it from cover to cover. I read it with mounting horror that I had participated in such a damaging economic system all my life, a system authorized by government and founded on a banking scam that is nothing less than legalized robbery.

It was news to me that 97% of the money in circulation today was originally created as a debt to a bank. All the savings in your account are there because someone earlier went into debt. When you apply for a bank loan or a mortgage the bank counterfeits that money into existence out of nothing, types the figure into a computer, and transfers it to your account. It's called fractional Reserve Banking. The bank will then charge you interest on the debt that was created out of nothing and if you default, will seize your real assets. Clearly this is institutionalized fraud.

Rowbotham explains how the debt money in circulation distorts the whole of the economy in such a way that economics has nothing to do with the needs of people and care for the environment and everything to do with pure money and finance. And so you find it makes financial sense to transport lettuces from Spain when they could be grown right here at home.

From the outset businesses are in debt to the banks and these additional costs over and above manufacturing costs tend to drive up prices of the goods produced and ensure they are of poor quality. Because of huge debts to banks, firms must keep wages down and so there is never enough money circulating to buy the products. So either aggressive exporting must take place or people must go into debt to buy the goods. A pyramid of rising debt is created and there must be economic growth at the top or the whole economic edifice collapses. This is the economic insanity in which we live and move and have our being.

Rowbotham explains that there is an alternative to the current one-sided debt based economics and this involves government itself creating a proportion of debt free money for circulation. The simple balanced system described made sense to me and why no-one ever discusses it is a complete mystery. So our whole economic system is based on a total misunderstanding of how money works. How could it have happened? It has happened because people are totally unconscious of the economic madness in which they participate on a daily basis.

After reading the book I woke up from unconsciousness and realized that in the absence of monetary reform the only realistic vote in any government referendum would be one of `no confidence'. I will never vote again until the promise of monetary reform is on a party manifesto. Read the book and the Truth will set you free.
