New Tim Burton film features Abraham Lincoln, vampires ... "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" to premiere in June 2012 ... While sitting in the theater waiting for "The Hunger Games" to start, I witnessed the most fantastically ridiculous trailer I've seen in a long time. It began when a slender man of large stature with the token beard, chiseled chin and tall top hat appeared on the screen. It was evident that he was Abraham Lincoln. When the trailer began, it looked like this movie might be some interesting, slightly morbid take on our 16th president's life. Or at least something that loosely follows documented history. But then the trailer cut to scenes of Honest Abe wielding an axe like he attended some brute weapons combat school. The slow-motion shot of Abe with his axe, though borderline cheesy, looked edgy. – Daily Wildcat
Dominant Social Theme: Abraham Lincoln − so great he even kills vampires.
Free-Market Analysis: The cult of Lincoln continues unabated. Now comes another movie glorifying the Great Emancipator − see excerpt above.
It is a "mash up" in which several genres are combined, fictionally. This mash up was initially fiction that combined the historical Lincoln with the vampire sub-genre.
The author was purposefully clever − or just lucky − to have featured Lincoln at a time when the powers-that-be are increasingly desperate for pro-government propaganda. We figure in this era of the Internet, Lincoln looks like a valuable figure to those who want to reinforce the primacy of government.
The dynastic families that apparently run central banks along with their enablers and associates are continually attempting to bolster statist heroes like Lincoln because these elites maintain control via mercantilism. They need government, the bigger the better, to efficaciously move toward a New World Order.
The power elite that wants to run the world is having a tough time of it these days. What we call the Internet Reformation is daily exposing the dominant social themes it uses to frighten people into giving up power and wealth to globalist institutions.
One of the biggest dominant social themes is the one of the "leader." We are constantly bombarded, in the West, with the idea that good political leadership will lead to good political results.
In fact, the political process is entirely one of price-fixing. Real leadership is actually practiced within the private sector and is the result of Misesian human action, the only kind that counts.
The power elite has made Lincoln into a hero and the Civil War into an admirable exercise in freeing slaves. But the slavery economy would have ended anyway with the advent of the industrial revolution. It did in England without a war.
The Civil War − the War Between the States − was a terrible affair and probably hurt black people as well as helped them. The legacy of bitterness and hatred was overwhelming and is only gradually being overcome ... if it actually is.
From our perspective, Lincoln is no hero. He set the South ablaze, killed innocents and virtually knocked down whole cities. Atlanta has never recovered.
He was also a statist politician who believed in the primacy of the state and was willing to arrest people without cause and trample the Constitution to pursue his goal of keeping the union together.
In this modern era, Lincoln has been made a hero by the neo-Greenbacker movement blossoming around the Internet, especially in the alternative press − led in part by Ellen Brown, author of the Web of Debt.
We believe more in private money and competitive money systems, including private clearinghouses, fractional reserve and anything else that someone wants to try. We believe within this context, silver and gold would find their place, as historical bimetallism always has.
Greenbackers, on the other hand, believe that government itself − if properly run "for the people" can issue fiat money and spend its way to prosperity.
Greenbackers make the case that Lincoln was a Greenbacker. And aficionados of "directed history" make the point that Lincoln, alone, stood against a power elite – European – plot to divide the US into two distinct countries to lessen its clout.
This perspective has made Lincoln a "hero" of sorts, even within the alternative media that should know better.
Politicians are not heroes nor can they be, given what they have to do and the alliances they have to make. Lincoln set in motion a war that murdered millions. He didn't likely HAVE to start a war, but he did.
Lincoln was at the center of one of the most powerful countries on Earth. The idea that he was a "killer" of European banking bloodsuckers is an attractive one, but hardly the truth.
Interestingly, they come to somewhat different conclusions about Lincoln's statist affections. DiLorenzo believes that Lincoln was pro-central banking and perhaps supported by the New York banking establishment.
Dr. Gary North believes that Lincoln was supportive of gold and silver and disparaging of fiat generally, including Greenbacks.
Whatever the truth, there is no doubt that Lincoln basically suspended the US Constitution and prosecuted a bloody war that he might have been able to find an alternative to.
Bottom line: From our humble point of view, Lincoln was likely in the hip pocket of Money Power.
European Money Power wanted a US war and Lincoln gave it one. When it was over, the US Republican exception was finished. Imperium had arrived. Things have only grown worse since.
The power elite has NEVER started a war, or not for the past 300 years or so, without controlling BOTH sides of the conflict. That's what directed history tells us. Hitler, Napoleon, the Kaiser (WWI) − in each case, Money Power seemingly controlled and funded the "enemy."
Why on Earth are we to believe that Lincoln − above all − was somehow immune to this formula? Most likely he was not.
No, he must have prosecuted a war at the bequest of Money Power and when it was done, they threw him over.
It really doesn't matter whether Lincoln was pro- or anti-Greenbacks. First of all, Greenbackerism doesn't work in the long run. Governments always print too much money when they have the chance and thus debase the currency.
That's why fiat schemes eventually wither − just as the dollar reserve system is withering. It doesn't matter who does the printing. It's the monopoly that matters.
But secondly and more important, Lincoln was evidently and obviously trapped in the elite dialectic − as all others have been in the modern era. To argue otherwise is surely naïve.
To argue that his death was specifically as a result of the intention to create more Greenbacks is equally naïve. He was part of the Money Power that he was supposedly confronting.
He wasn't standing alone, heroically, against Money Power. He was a creature of it. He must have been.
Understand this and the Civil War − and his crazed actions − suddenly snap into focus. It was more directed history, and Lincoln was one more puppet. The result of the war, as planned, was the collapse of American exceptionalism and the rise of Leviathan.
Lincoln, with his profound and absurd veneration for a "nation" (see the Gettysburg address) played his role with greater or lesser enthusiasm. Perhaps he knew his fate would be death; perhaps not.
He needed to justify his actions by using the rhetoric of nation-hood, even though a "nation" is an artificial construct. In the deepest sense there are no nations, for nations are constructs of culture. Those who use the term, like Lincoln, are creating an artifical concept to justify a kind of rhetorical cover.
John Kennedy was not assassinated because he signed an executive order for the issuance of Silver Certificates. Alternative historians have written on this folk theory extensively and proved it to be a modern myth. Lincoln was probably not assassinated simply because he somehow stood up against Money Power ... elites that, in fact, had likely helped place him where he was.
What we CAN draw from ongoing Greenbacker speculation is that the world is not as simple a place as "Neo-Gs" would like to make out.
In this case, it is most interesting − especially given the upcoming Lincoln movie.
