Evil Occupies Wall Street?

... A vast image out of Spiritus Mundi
Troubles my sight: somewhere in sands of the desert ...
What rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?
– The Second Coming/WB Yeats

Dominant Social Theme: There is to be a worldwide revolution on October 15th! Be there or be square.

Free-Market Analysis: Today, we hear the heavy tread of the "rough beast" and we see for ourselves the progress of a cold-blooded anti-freedom movement rising in front of our disbelieving eyes.

What proximate cause drives this revelation? On October 15th there is to be a "worldwide demonstration for global change." Just like that. (And by the way, Oct. 15th is the day of Wall Street's second largest meltdown ever, in 2008). We wonder if the US State department knows about this. Along with the CIA, the State dept. has supported numerous "youth movements" via AYM worldwide.

The announcement of this global protest comes to us courtesy of 15october.net, and while there is seemingly no direct connection between "15October" and Occupy Wall Street, somehow we're sure there is. The 15October site carries examples of stickers and posters. One poster reads "Legally camp on Wall Street and remain together to be strong."

Yes, increasingly, this seems a virulent, deliberate, calculated operation. The 15October rhetoric is deliberately internationalist. "United for Global Change." Say what? Did we miss something? When did these demos morph into an international movement for "global change" and a "better place to live for all." What the hell does that mean?

Meanwhile, libertarian elements of Occupy Wall Street have been purposefully deemphasized. Now the mainstream media covers these demos as if they were a credible explosion of popular anger. A populist movement is being created, and quite deliberately.

There are obviously plenty of good people involved in the larger Occupy Wall Street movement. A good many, no doubt, are libertarians, not socialists or upper-rank, fat-cat unionists. A good many believe in freedom, not Marxist rhetoric.

But the reality doesn't matter. Despite the resolute insistence that the movement has no leaders, it is evidently and obviously being manipulated at the top, and most cleverly. More and more it seems a promotion, a sub dominant social theme of the Anglosphere banking families that are trying to impose world government – and are racing to do so before the Internet Reformation blows up their 300-year-old conspiracy.

These current demonstrations started "small," of course, as they must. But then they blew up. Spontaneously! Suddenly there were cases of police abuse. Then, inexplicably, the demonstrators were led from sidewalks onto the Brooklyn Bridge and arrested. And now the unions are involved. From all over America. And soon from all over the world. The mechanisms seem clearly visible.

We're fully aware of the tricks by now, how they seem to implement what we have called directed history. Nothing has to be real, in fact, they just need a pretext. First some demonstrators, then a worldwide protest and resultant media attention. October is a bad month, so throw in a stock market crash, a looming depression, food shortages and unemployment lines.

Now top honchos at the IMF announce that the only thing that can save the planet is a worldwide currency. Fortunately, they have one – special drawing rights (SDRs) – a basket of currencies that can serve as the new "money." Time to replace the dollar-reserve system?

Control the mainstream media, control the money, control legislatures around the world and you can create any version of history you choose. You can manufacture a crisis and then implement a solution – and you can do it independently of the will of billions. Greek citizens have been protesting austerity for months, but it hasn't made any difference. Their legislature exists in a parallel elitist universe.

We thank feedbacker "concernedforfreedoms" for sending us a series of links yesterday that seem to show this plan quite clearly. You can see his feedback within the article queue "Occupy Wall Street Turns into 1930s Populism." It is time-stamped 4:58 PM.

We watched a video he/she linked to (and some related ones). All very slick. Amazingly professional. And the iconography? Very well produced, given the "spontaneous" nature of what is supposedly occurring. Say, where did all this come from? It's almost like a ... campaign, one that's been in the works for months or even years.

Is there a pattern? It's the DB's purpose to analyze the memes of the elite. And these demos fit right into larger patterns we've observed in the past. First, theoretically anyway, destabilize Western economies and make people angry, then start to create agitation for change. Ensure that the change is aimed at the private sector – the banks and businesses that supposedly caused the current economic crisis.

Finally, set up phony agitation that will lead to deep, Draconian legislation and even a world currency. This is the blueprint that seems to have worked in the 1930s to advance elite control when the first wave of regulatory fascism hit the books in the US (and then went worldwide) with the creation of the dysfunctional SEC, NASD, "self-regulatory organizations, etc." – and finally the confiscation of gold.

is there any reason to think that Western elites that want world government won't repeat this? They rarely break new ground. They stick to what works. And their machinations are fairly visible in this era of the Internet. Are they playing everyone else for dupes? Protesters included? 

It seems to be happening fast! Like a speeded-up movie reel. In fact, the Internet has thoroughly exposed what we consider to be fear-based promotions and efforts to redirect the wealth and power of Western middle classes to their horrible globalist institutions. This is one reason they're likely in a hurry. Their plans are failing, perhaps. Increasingly these co-opted Wall Street demos seem like another step in a certain direction.

Maybe they won't win, not in the long run anyway. We'd like to think not. No world government for you! But it's not going to be an easy struggle if it's joined more earnestly. It's going to be long and bloody. We figure they'll end up taking a step back. But we've seen they don't do it easily.

See, they get angry when they're exposed ... and challenged. We've seen that in the past couple of years as the truth-telling of the Internet Reformation has put more and more pressure on them. The peasants are not to question the masters of the universe, much less begin to comprehend the lies of directed history. It's not their place.

Editor's Note: Interesting report from Webster G. Tarpley of alternative webblog Tarpley.net: Occupy Wall Street: Who Wants to Hijack the Movement? ... Eyewitness observers suggest that the deliberations of the general assembly are largely a diversion, and that real power is being increasingly concentrated in the hands of about 20 mysterious and anonymous individuals who appear to make up a kind of covert steering committee that pulls the strings on the general assembly, or else goes around it completely. The members of this cadre of mysterious operatives are not as young as the average demonstrator. The secret leadership is made up of people ranging in age from 25 to over 40, with the older ones occupying the key posts. Many of them appear to be active duty or recently retired military ...

Conclusion

Again, we could be wrong. We hope we are. But it's a down day. All the elves are sniveling. Our 100-elf conference table is a just a sea of woe. We still won't let them out for lunch. Its hour come round at last ...
