Brothers and Sisters ,

Please give this article by Thomas DiLorenzo , a professor of economics at Loyola  College in Maryland a serious read on this July 4th.

Peace to All Citizen Soul Power

07/01/09 The purpose of government is for those who run it to plunder those who do not. Throughout history, governments have used violence, intimidation, coercion, and mass murder to enforce this system. But governments’ first line of “defense” is always a blizzard of lies – about its own alleged benevolence, altruism, heroism, and greatness, along with equally big lies about the “evils” of the civil society, especially the free market.

The current economic crisis, which was instigated by the government’s central bank and its boom-and-bust monetary policies, among other interventions, has once again been blamed on “too little regulation” and too much freedom.

Will Americans ever catch on to this biggest of all of government’s Big Lies?

When the Pilgrims came to America, they nearly starved to death because they adopted communal agriculture. When William Bradford, leader of the Mayflower expedition, figured this out he reorganized the Massachusetts pilgrims in a regime of private property in land. The incentives created by private property promptly created a dramatic economic turnaround and the rest is history. Most history books ignore this reality, however, and blame the starvation crisis of the Pilgrims on corporate greed on the part of the Mayflower company.

After the American Revolution, it was imperative to build roads and canals so that commerce could expand and the economy thrive. George Washington’s Treasury secretary, Alexander Hamilton, declared in his famous Report on Manufactures that private road and canal building would never succeed without government subsidies. President Thomas Jefferson’s Treasury secretary, Albert Gallatin, concurred. Meanwhile, private capital markets and the private “turnpike” industry were busy financing thousands of miles of private roads without any governmental assistance. When government did intervene in early-American road building, it was a financial catastrophe almost everywhere, so much so that by 1860 only Missouri and Massachusetts had not amended their state constitutions to prohibit the use of tax dollars for “internal improvements.”

Americans have been taught by their government-run schools that the post-1865 Industrial Revolution was bad for the working class, which made government regulation of work and wages, and the creation and prospering of labor unions necessary. In reality, people left the farms for factories because the latter offered far better wages and working conditions. Between 1860 and 1890, real wages increased by 50 percent in America, as myriad new products were invented, and made available to the common working person thanks to low-cost, mass production. It was capital investment that dramatically increased the productivity of labor, allowing hours worked to decline from an average of 61 hours per week in 1870 to 48 hours by 1929.

Higher worker productivity, fueled mostly by capital investment by entrepreneurs and private investors, also made it less necessary for families to force their children to work. Child labor was on the wane for decades before government got around to regulating or outlawing it. And when it did so it was to protect unionized labor from competition, not to protect children from harsh working conditions.

The “robber barons” of the late 19th century robbed no one. Most of them made their money by providing valuable – if not revolutionary – goods and services to the masses at lower and lower prices for decades at a time. John D. Rockefeller, for example, caused the price of refined petroleum to drop from 30 cents per gallon in 1869 to 8 cents in 1885, and continued to drop his prices for many years thereafter. James J. Hill built the most efficient and profitable transcontinental railroad without a dime’s worth of government subsidy. In return for their remarkable free-market success the government prosecuted both of these men, kangaroo court style, under the protectionist “antitrust” laws. The real “robbers” were politically connected businessmen like Leland Stanford, a former California governor and senator, who succeeded in getting laws passed that granted his company a monopoly in the California railroad business.

The federal antitrust laws were passed beginning with the Sherman Antitrust Act of 1890 because the government informed Americans that industry was becoming “rampantly cartelized” or monopolized. In reality, prices everywhere were plummeting as new products and services were being invented everywhere. The entire period from 1865 to 1900 was a period of price deflation. As I show in How Capitalism Saved America, all of the industries accused of being monopolies by Congress in 1889-890 had been dropping their prices for at least a decade thanks to vigorous competition. And it was not a result of the idiotic theory of “predatory pricing.” No sane businessperson would intentionally lose money for decades by pricing below cost with the hope that he would somehow frighten away all competition forevermore.

Everyone “knows” that President Herbert Hoover was a staunch advocate of laissez-faire economics, and it was his lack of interventionism that caused the Great Depression. This is the biggest governmental lie in the history of America. Hoover was a “progressive” (as today’s socialists, also known as “Democrats,” have taken to calling themselves).

Hoover strong-armed corporate executives into raising wages at a time when wages needed to adjust downward in the free market in order to minimize unemployment. He devoted 13% of the federal budget to a failed “stimulus” program of pork-barrel spending and imposed some of the biggest tax increases in history to fund it all. He was a protectionist who signed the notorious Smoot-Hawley Tariff Act, which increased the average tariff rate to nearly 60 percent and spawned a worldwide trade war that shrunk world trade by two-thirds in three years. He cartelized the agricultural industry with “farm boards” that began the insane practice of paying farmers for not growing crops or raising livestock. He pioneered the politicization of capital markets by creating the Reconstruction Finance Corporation. And he ranted and raved against “greedy capitalists” while launching numerous government “investigations” of investors and the stock market. FDR’s top domestic advisor, Rexford Tugwell, said that his fellow New Dealers “owed much to Hoover,” who began many of the policies that they simply extended.

Every time the price of gasoline goes up significantly, Congress convenes a Nuremburg Trial–style inquisition of oil-company executives. This practice began in the 1970s when the government’s own foolish price controls on petroleum products caused massive shortages, and it needed someone to blame. Oil company executives are never praised when gasoline prices fall, as they have in the past year from over $4/gallon to under $2/gallon in many parts of the United States.

Most recently, the current economic crisis is said to be caused by the “excesses” of economic freedom and “too little regulation” of the economy, especially financial markets. This is said by the president and numerous other politicians, with straight faces, despite the facts that there are a dozen executive-branch cabinet departments, over 100 federal agencies, more than 85,000 pages in the Federal Register, and dozens of state and local government agencies that regulate, regiment, tax, and control every aspect of every business in America, and have been doing so for decades.

Laissez-faire run amok in financial markets is said to be a cause of the current crisis. But the Fed alone – a secret government organization that is accountable to no one and which has never been audited – performs hundreds of regulatory functions, in addition to recklessly manipulating the money supply. And it is just one of numerous financial regulatory agencies (the SEC, Comptroller of the Currency, Office of Thrift Supervision, FDIC, and numerous state regulators also exist). In a Fed publication entitled “The Federal Reserve System: Purposes and Functions,” it is explained that “The Federal Reserve has supervisory and regulatory authority over a wide range of financial institutions and activities.” That’s the understatement of the century. Among the Fed’s functions are the regulation of

  • Bank holding companies
  • State-chartered banks
  • Foreign branches of member banks
  • Edge and agreement corporations
  • US state-licensed branches, agencies, and representative offices of foreign banks
  • Nonbanking activities of foreign banks
  • National banks (with the Comptroller of the Currency)
  • Savings banks (with the Office of Thrift Supervision)
  • Nonbank subsidiaries of bank holding companies
  • Thrift holding companies
  • Financial reporting
  • Accounting policies of banks
  • Business “continuity” in case of an economic emergency
  • Consumer-protection laws
  • Securities dealings of banks
  • Information technology used by banks
  • Foreign investments of banks
  • Foreign lending by banks
  • Branch banking
  • Bank mergers and acquisitions
  • Who may own a bank
  • Capital “adequacy standards”
  • Extensions of credit for the purchase of securities
  • Equal-opportunity lending
  • Mortgage disclosure information
  • Reserve requirements
  • Electronic-funds transfers
  • Interbank liabilities
  • Community Reinvestment Act subprime lending requirements
  • All international banking operations
  • Consumer leasing
  • Privacy of consumer financial information
  • Payments on demand deposits
  • “Fair credit” reporting
  • Transactions between member banks and their affiliates
  • Truth in lending
  • Truth in savings

That’s a pretty comprehensive list, the result of 96 years of bureaucratic empire building by Fed bureaucrats. It gives the lie to the notion that there has been “too little regulation” of financial markets. Anyone who makes such an argument is either ignorant of the truth or is lying.

Corporate Spooks:

Private Security Contractors

Infiltrate Social Justice


Spies might miss the Cold War, but they’re getting plenty of work tracking activists

Corporate Spies

Cara Schaffer just wanted to improve the lives of vegetable pickers in the fields of south Florida. In March the idealistic college student signed up to volunteer for the Student/Farmworker Alliance, a group that works closely with the Coalition of Immokalee Workers to fight for better wages.Schaffer’s fellow activists, however, quickly became suspicious of the new recruit’s excessive enthusiasm, particularly her keen desire to take part in national conference calls that plotted strategy. So they punched her name into an Internet search engine and discovered that Schaffer wasn’t a college student at all. She was the owner of Diplomatic Tactical Services, a private security and espionage firm based in Jupiter, Florida.

Schaffer’s firm had been hired by Burger King, which was locked in a dispute with the coalition over tomato pickers’ wages. In the aftermath of her outing as a corporate mole, two of the burger empire’s executives were fired and the company agreed to meet the workers’ demands.

While activists easily sussed out Schaffer’s rather buffoonish infiltration attempt, highly professional corporate espionage has become a galling reality for many activist groups. In the wake of the Cold War, former spies from the CIA, FBI, Britain’s MI5 and MI6—even the KGB—are increasingly plying their dark arts for private firms with cinematically sinister names such as Diligence, Control Risks, and Kroll.

“The big change in recent years has been the huge growth in these companies,” Annie Machon, a former MI5 agent, told the London-based New Statesman (Aug. 11, 2008). “Where before it was a handful of private detective agencies, now there are hundreds of multinational security organizations, which operate with less regulation than the spooks themselves.”

Perhaps the most disturbing entry in the lucrative corporate espionage field is the private-military firm Blackwater Worldwide (best known for gunning down 17 civilians in Baghdad’s Nisour Square in 2007). Led by J. Cofer Black, who spent 28 years working for the CIA, Blackwater launched the Orwellian-named Total Intelligence Solutions in February 2007. The firm is stacked with former high-ranking officials from the FBI and the U.S. State Department, promising clients around the globe, including foreign governments, unprecedented access to power brokers in Washington. “It is not difficult to imagine clients feeling as though they are essentially hiring the U.S. government to serve their own interests,” the Nation reports (June 23, 2008).

While spying on idealistic do-gooders is undoubtedly a minuscule portion of these firms’ activities, businesses have sometimes taken elaborate steps to acquire the inside dope on protest plans, acts of civil disobedience, and lobbying agendas. This fixation suggests that the regrettably groomed rabble demonstrating outside your local weapons-manufacturing plant might actually be causing some anxiety in corporate boardrooms.

Activists also attract the attention of corporate spies for a less flattering reason, says John Stauber, founder of the watchdog group the Center for Media and Democracy and its magazine, PR Watch. “Any firm involved in corporate espionage is more than happy to take on the job of spying on activist organizations because, frankly, they see it as easy pickings.” RELATED CONTENT Live and Let Spy? Not for a handful of Republicans taking issue with Bush’s domestic surveillance program… Meet The Corporation It has no conscience. It’s pathological. And it’s in your neighborhood…. Police Spying 101 Police Spying 101… Stopping Corporate Interference in Local Government Stopping Corporate Interference in Local Government January 13, 2003 Issue By Erica Sagrans, Utne…. Corporate Blind-Eye to King Holiday Corporate Blind-Eye to King Holiday January 12, 2001 Leif Utne Corporate Blind-Eye to King… Often operating on shoestring budgets, and dependent on the benevolence of average citizens, few advocacy groups have the time or the inclination to conduct background checks on the volunteers who show up at their door. “Until somebody screws up in some way or ends up in a lawsuit, it’s very difficult to document these activities,” says Stauber. That’s what happened in early 2008, when a nasty business dispute brought to light one brazen tale of espionage. Becket Brown International (BBI) was started by former Secret Service officers in 1995.

After the company’s primary investor, John C. Dodd III, had a falling out with his business partners he began contacting activist groups that the firm was spying on. Among BBI’s targets: environmentalists in Louisiana and elder-care activists in Maryland. The most audacious case in the BBI files focused on antigun organizations. Starting in the mid-’90s, Mary McFate became a prominent activist within the gun-control movement. She sat on the boards of various organizations, including Philadelphia-based CeaseFire PA and the Freedom States Alliance in Chicago, and lobbied for violence-prevention legislation in Washington. Her volunteer activities came to an abrupt halt in 2008 when Dodd’s tips helped Mother Jones (July 30, 2008) expose Mary McFate as Mary Lou Sapone, a corporate spy on hire for BBI. Among BBI’s illustrious clients: the National Rifle Association. The gun-control groups were taken aback by the revelation. “She had access to all the legislative strategy for every major issue for years,” said Kristen Rand, legislative director of the Violence Policy Center. Not everyone, though, viewed McFate-Sapone’s infiltration as an ominous development. “I actually think she helped the movement rather than hurt the movement through all her volunteer efforts,” Ona Hamilton, a founder of CeaseFire PA, told the Philadelphia Inquirer (Aug. 1, 2008). “I just don’t see what she could have gained in terms of damaging information.”

Brothers and Sisters,

Please listen to the words of Robert Kennedy as read by his brother Ted during a Eulogy given in his honor. For me, Robert F. Kennedy was one of the truly inspirational and great men of the 20th century. He lived a short 43th years on this earth but gave every minute his fullest attention.

Never before have we citizens witnessed one mans journey toward enlightenment played out so openly and clearly, and on the grand stage of American Politics as the spiritual journey of Robert F. Kennedy.

Although he came from a family of great wealth and power RFK became even more committed to fighting the dark elements in American society after he came to see his own fathers part in all of it. That fact and the burden of believing his moral pursuits as attorney general may have contributed to his own brothers murder brought a new a heightened awareness to his abilities regarding the struggles of the oppressed during that time in history.

In 1965 as he attempted to deal with his deep grief regarding the murder of his brother Jack he traveled with a three-man team on an excursion sponsored by the National Geographic Society, RFK was the first to reach the summit of the 13,000 ft Mount Kennedy. He had no previous climbing experience. Up to that point, Mount Kennedy was the highest unclimbed peak in North America. It had been named after President John F. Kennedy earlier that year.

He morphed right in front of our eyes from an unsure and timid public speaker into a man who had millions of citizens who loved him as one of us and followed him like he was to be the next messiah. He became fearless, which may have contributed to his undoing. It is said that he was well aware of who was behind the public execution of his brother and as his popularity grew exponentially those responsible in the system grew even more fearful of him becoming President.

Another of the Peoples Kings had to be removed to maintain business as usual in Washington and so it was constructed.

As a small boy my family lived in the Washington D.C. area and we had the priviledge of attending many events at Hickory Hill, the home of Robert Kennedy. We stood with candles in a warm summer rain the night they brought his body back home on the funeral train from New York. My father, Irish American from Massachusetts and a devote follower of Jack and Bobby Kennedy gave in to alcohol after seeing both the brothers and MLK removed by the “Good Ol’ Boy, Industrial Defense, Power Structure / Masonic Brotherhood.” 

For me, in reflection, I can now see how devestating it must have been for my father, then a young man, to see so clearly the true nature of the Elite and Powerful of America. How easy it was for the powerful to destroy all the hope these good men fought so hard to instill in all of us.

We have all been witness to these same members of the Elite who abuse and rape the constituition and do as they see fit during these last few decades. All the while neglecting their responsibilities to their fellow man. It is my hope that we all begin to see more clearly the power and beauty we all possess when we embrace the philosophy of Loving Kindness and Compassion for all of our fellow beings.

Each of us can make positive change through the way we live our daily lives. I hope you take time to review the many choices available on this site to contribute to the empowerment and well being of your fellow brothers and sisters.

May all beings be happy and safe, and may there hearts be filled with joy.

Citizen Soul Power

The words of Robert Kennedy read by his Brother Ted as part of his Eulogy.


The powerful words that Bobby Kennedy lived by and loved, written by one of his favorite writers George Bernard Shaw.

“Some men see things as they are and say why. I dream things that never were and say why not.”

This footage is a testament to the Power of Hope and Love one man (RFK) instilled in hundreds of thousands of American citizens. Each of us has that same ability within us.

Finally, the words written and spoken by RFK the day after the murder of MLK.
