One of the enlightening parts of having presidential elections is the bringing to the surface of how corruption has taken hold of our free enterprise system. Not by wars but by finance, namely, what best selling author Orrin Woodward describes as ‘The Financial Matrix.’ Orrin writes in the forward of my new book, ‘The Torch of Freedom,’ “Indeed, Big Government, Big Banks, and Big Corporations (aka Big Bureaucracies) have all defaulted to coercion, rather than service as the ruling modus operandi.” Sadly, the joke is on the American people, once educated and informed about real issues, now dumbed down by a multi layered propaganda machine.
Warnings against the oppressive forces against freedom are not paranoia like those who wish for the further dumbing down of the population would have you believe. The study of history proves that there has always been an educated force for freedom that chooses to expose the manipulators of a free society. Before we discuss ways to protect our freedom, let’s examine the symptoms of the results of ‘Freedom’s Purchase.’
In order to pull off such a coup to oppress a free people there must first be a dumbing down process. Compulsory education is a necessary component. The history of compulsory education is rooted at the turn of the century under the guise of ‘progressive education’, with John Dewey being the most notable orchestrator. But there are others who helped pioneer compulsory education if you would like to research the subject. The roots of ‘progressive education’ originate from the Prussian school. Some of the most notable Prussian school advocates are G. Stanley Hall and one of his first students, Edmund Burke Huey as well as Edward Thorndike. Speed forward to modern times and the torch of progressivism has been carried on by multitudes. One example is UCLA Ed. Dean, John Goodlad who wrote, “The tacit or contextual is often more significant than the explicit. Parents and the general public must be reached also. Otherwise, children and youth enrolled in globally oriented programs may find themselves in conflict with values assumed in the home. And then the educational institution comes under scrutiny and must pull back.” Regarding this, Robin S. Eubanks writes, “As you can see, he was unconcerned with what we parent, taxpayers, and businesses thought we were paying for as we forked over those property taxes to pay for this reorientation agenda.” Results of the dumbing down come from multiple resources, one that includes ‘The National Institute of Literacy’ that reveals as many as 32 million adults can’t read? In literacy, that means, 14% of the population. In addition to that, 21% of adults in the U.S. read at a 5th grade level.
Symptoms of the ‘Freedom’s Purchase’ begin to manifest itself in modern times with massive debt. This requires a media that manipulates scripted sound bites repetitively with phrases like “consumer price index.” This message tells us that in order to grow our economy we need to spend. T.V. has consumerism weaved throughout its programs, commercials, and news broadcasts. Debt is bondage to someone or some institution. It’s required if ‘Freedom’s Purchase’ is to be bought and paid for. In addition to consumer spending some of the bondage comes in the form of a 400% increase in tuition and fees over the last 25 years. This is an indicator of ‘Freedom’s Purchase’ and results in $1.3 Trillion in student loan debt spread over 44 million borrowers. The average Class of 2016 graduate has $37,172 in student loan debt, up 6% from last year. Evidence of ‘Freedom’s Purchase’ is clear today. America - its government, businesses, and people - are nearly $60 trillion in debt, according to the latest economic data from the St. Louis Federal Reserve.
‘Freedom’s Purchase’ is aided by creating new concepts that alter our perceptions. For example, a new condition is described by The Department of Labor that is unique in the 20th and 21st century called, “The 45 - year plan.” That belief is now firmly entrenched as “just the way it is.” This is where 95% of the population’s income reaches its peak somewhere around their mid – thirties, however, most everyone is willing to except this condition because they are taught to look forward to a condition called, “retirement.” This is when people become aware that they have to learn how to live on 1/3 of their incomes. Interestingly, this condition called retirement exists only in modern times. This concept is nowhere to be found throughout all of past civilizations. Prior societies never removed those aged who are at the height of their wisdom. Today they are ushered to the side of a golf course instead of providing timeless wisdom about lessons learned from the past. It’s solely an invention of the industrial society where we are taught to take a portion of our earnings out of each check while we work and invest it over a period of years hoping to use the power of compounding so we can live on the residuals during the few remaining years of our lives. Meanwhile, our hard earned money is gobbled up by ‘The Financial Matrix.’ Rachel Greszler recently exposed the results of these so called savings plans in an article titled, ‘State, Local Governments Have Funded Only 35 Cents of Every Dollar Committed to Pensions.’ “$5.6 trillion is how much a recent report from the American Legislative Exchange Council, or ALEC, estimates state and local governments across the U.S. have promised to their employees, but can’t afford to pay.”
Let’s move on before we get too depressed. Other examples of ‘Freedom’s Purchase’ require corruption from the so called, “higher institutions” like the Federal Reserve Board and the FBI. Tommy Behnke of the ‘Mises Institute,’ who writes, “It is no secret that the FED – a so – called independent central bank – leans left. Two weeks before the 2014 elections, Janet Yellen gave a passionate speech on income inequality, then a major talking point of Democratic candidates. This year, Hillary Clinton received over four times more in donations from Federal Reserve officials than every other Republican and Democratic presidential candidate combined. Fed Governor Lael Brainard – who many believe may have a potential appointment waiting for her in the Clinton administration – has donated the legal maximum to the Clinton campaign.” Results of further manipulation of the monetary policy, “The Job Openings and Labor Turnover (JOLTS) – Janet Yellen’s favorite indicator of the labor market – was also released on Wednesday and showed that US job openings have fallen to their lowest level in 8 months.” In addition, the FBI has become a suspect in corrupt behavior being associated with pay offs, pay for play, and collusion. Only time will tell if the FBI is ‘Bought and Paid for.’ Freedom has never been under this kind of assault that is underway today. How could the American people grow to tolerate the corruptness of these institutions?
New York Times Best – Selling Author and Inc. Magazine Top 20 Leader, Orrin Woodward writes in the forward of my new book, ‘The Torch of Freedom,’ “Naturally the power elites who carry the torch of force, seek to coerce and confuse the masses, dividing them through fear and hate, to gain at the masses’ expense.” With this unprecedented insurmountable scenario upon us, what’s to be done? When times look the bleakest, perhaps a simple solution lies right in front of us. One can simply refuse to participate. To use a term from the movie, ‘The Matrix,’ “unplug” from those who wish to coerce us. With a self – directed education similar to the one offered from ‘LIFE,’ ‘Financial,’ ‘Personal,’ and ‘Corporate,’ we can learn to restore our personal freedom like thousands of others are currently doing. Step one: master the basics as taught in the ‘Financial Fitness Services.’ Develop a strategy to unplug from ‘The Financial Matrix,’ by getting out of debt so no one can own you. Step two: Further your knowledge about how to gain autonomy as taught in the ‘Beyond Financial Fitness’ program that teaches a deeper understanding of how to develop assets. Perhaps a Gold reserve should be considered for your portfolio. Step three: Educate yourself about the playing field, those corrupt forces who wish to coerce the masses. Once greater autonomy is gained, your influence can be used to help others who wish to gain their freedom too! With autonomy achieved from effective financial strategies and an independent self - directed education, you and future generations will never have to wake up to the notice, ‘Freedom’s Purchase Complete: Bought and Paid For.’ God Bless, George Guzzardo
