Exposes the scam of the client state - and provides answers
on 21 November 2013
An eminently readable book - exposing the destructive nature of socialism and the client state. Frisby correctly makes a clear distinction between the free market (true capitalism) and "crony capitalism" - that situation we presently have in the Western World where we, the taxpayers live by the rules of the free-market but the banksters, many politicians, and large corporations do not - they are subsidised by us, the hard-working, honest tax-payers.
A great advantage Frisby has is that he is not a formally educated economist, yet he is well-read on the reality of the subject and is clearly intelligent. This makes for an easily understandable and widely informative work.
There are four parts to the book: 1) The Rise of the Monster (excess government / the state); 2) Money and Tax: Why You'll Never Be One of the 1%; 3) Pillars of the State (NHS / "Education" / etc); 4) Towards life after the State. They (all 4 parts) are most interesting and informative.
The most profound (short) paragraph in the book (to me) is on page 91 and reads thus: "It is government control of money that makes these wars possible. 'Without the money-counterfeiting tool of government,' wrote American economist E.C. Riegel in 1949, 'there could be no war except by popular mandate, because the price would have to be consciously and immediately paid. The would-be war-maker first of all conquers and subdues his own people by the narcotic of counterfeit money. If the people would hold the veto power of war, they must deny to their government the power to counterfeit money'. "
This work is revelatory and is essential reading - I wish I had had it available as a young man. I have given copies to each of my children (over 16) and hope they read it - it will make life so much more understandable to them - and thus give them greater direction in life.
A great book. If it has one fault it is that Frisby is too easy on the "elite". He does not define who they are, EXACTLY. Neither does he expose the scam of PRIVATE central banks controlling interest rates and the issuance of money. I know some of you say that our BoE is publicly owned - it is not - it is a scam - it is really controlled by a certain elite - just as The Fed, The ECB, The IMF, The BIS are. Have no doubt about that. I leave you with one question (that Frisby did not really address): why is it, if we do indeed own the BoE, why is it that we are shackled by interest payments to this body. Why don't we just cancel the debt to ourselves? Just like Iceland did - successfully - but the banker-controlled mainstream media do not want you know about that, do they. Hmmmmmmmmm....?
