The Tin Foil Hat Goes Mainstream.

Recommended Posts

Max Keiser has been plugging the 'Financial Terrorist' meme for years- and been labeled an extremist for doing so-

So it's interesting to see this short piece in the LA Times;

When are America’s leaders going to step up and protect us from the most threatening terrorists, hedge fund managers?

Sure, some Islamist nutcase might be able to set off a bomb on a bus or in a building, but, horrific as that may be, the damage to our society is not nearly as great as the wrecking ball that can hit us all when one of the greedy schemes of aggressive and unscrupulous financiers goes awry. Yes, Islamic terrorists took down the World Trade Center in 2001, but the financial terrorists took down the world economy in 2008.

Vast new wealth is being manufactured from thin air by the financial sector, and almost all of that wealth goes to the very few hedge fund managers, derivatives traders and other money manipulators who operate in a world of their own creation with scant regulation and no sense of obligation to society. The rest of us only get hooked into this bigger game when the guys in high finance screw up, drive the economy over a cliff and drag everyone down with them.

Right now, we are in a period of recovery from the 2008 financial disaster. Finally, there are more jobs for more people. But, structurally, nothing much has changed. We still live at the mercy of the financiers, and it is hard to imagine that they will not blow everything up again, unless someone steps in to stop their kind of terrorism.

We hear a lot of talk about dead children in Syria of late- but I reckon the IMF has killed more children than the Assad regime- if we were to calculate the impact of their Neo Liberal interventions over the years- how many third world kids have been destroyed by these banker shills as they drove economies into the ground to make sure the banks got their fake money repaid-with interest?

Keiser was stating a simple truth when he labeled the bankers as financial terrorists- they wield the threat of economic collapse to extract wealth and evade legal sanctions- what is that if not terrorism?

It's not a recovery, it's a relapse.
