#109: The Top Ten List Minus One

These are the top ten reads in subjects related to money, economics, history and their interrelations. We're talking about many more than ten books. We're listing authors and even lumping some of them together. Books of all the major economists are specifically omitted as the “pulp fictions” they are. To get anything useful from them, they would have to be mercilessly exorcised of all references they contain to the presumed origins of money as to us those casually assumed omissions conceal what most needs to be revealed and recognized concerning the present system.

1) We begin with the collected works of E. C. Riegel (all available on this blog) who clearly makes the list as these works propose the penciled sketches of an entirely different and quite obvious perception of money, a vital human invention used to split whole barter in half between buyer and seller. Without his brilliant observations, we wouldn't have the present humanitarian proposal as a clear and present way out of all the important dilemmas facing mankind, including poverty, war and extinction.

2) But then we have Carroll Quigley's Tragedy & Hope, available as a free download on line, a work that literally changed how I view everything. I divide people into two rough categories, those who have read this book and those who haven't. It's big; 1,310 pages. If nothing else, read the material on Great Britain and draw the appropriate conclusions. Quigley wrote two other major works, but they are less weighty than his masterwork.

3) The Wall Street series by Antony Sutton ranks right up there with Quigley's work and offers a few more interesting details. There are three of them and they describe the financing of the Soviet Union, the making of FDR and the rise of Hitler. However he may have characterized the revolutionaries, FDR or Hitler is not relevant as his focus was rather on money and business. No understanding of contemporary political-economic affairs is complete without knowing this information. Of course the other books by Sutton are certainly worth reading for more excruciating details of some best known conspiracies, all of which can be laid to the usual sources (globalists, bankers, elites) and their willing dupes and minions. Really, if you're still working for any of these people, what are you doing?

4) The New Underworld Order by Christoper Story FRSA is one of the better compilations of all the connections that are apparent to the average student of state, deep state and extra-state espionage and mercantile networks, syndicates and mafias. This work is available on line, here.

Oh, and if you haven't guessed it yet, this man was my mentor and gave me the mission to find something else that people could use as money because the present system couldn't last long and what they had planned was terrible. He was the editor of the International Currency Review and of course knew a lot about money. So what are the rest of you clowns out there taking me for anyway? You think I know nothing? Some rank amateur perhaps? Some of you get your egos in a bunch and assume you could do better with the existing system. Go ahead then! You see how easy it is to get many dupes to follow, all you need to is provide it, like bitcoin and you have a market. It matters not to you that all you've accomplished is the creating of yet another “scarce” commodity for speculators to play with. This is NOT a reliable yardstick of value and you never know how much anything will cost so you can't plan constructively at the level it needs to be done; locally not globally. Which of you knows exactly and precisely how money is issued and how it inevitably dies? How many of you know that money is not best served as a scarce quantity that can be speculated upon in rigged markets but must be a renewable resource else economies literally die? Best think again and reconsider this blog's proposal.

5) The fifth spot belongs to Eustace Mullins. Read all of him you possibly can. It's all on line. It's all relevant to the present moment. G. Edward Griffin's work goes here too. Together with Mullins' works, that's four or five books you'll have to read. Much of it deals with the Federal Reserve. It's vital you understand how and why none of it is OUR money and never has been.

6) The Babylonian Woe by David Astle sits in the particular spot to show the connections between banking and war and the preparations for and making of war between nations and peoples from ancient times; the weapons, slaves, precious metals and drug trades are all integrally related. It is a rigorous but well footnoted classic.

BTW: what's so different about recent events and atrocious behaviors involving major crimes alleged to have been committed by high ranking political officials and anything that was alleged to have happened among the same ruling circles in ancient times? Check what you might know about ancient Rome or Greece while they were in decline. For that matter what of the connection between the Hell Fire Club of Ben Franklin's day and Eyes Wide Shut partying that really does go on right up to this moment?

7) Gertrude Coogan's Money Creators, available on line, is particularly good at describing banking, the ways it works, etc. You'll get a better idea of why it is best to let lenders lend money they actually have rather than other people's money without their real understanding or knowledge. Such practices lead to economic bubbles, cycles of booms and busts, and bank failures, all our proposal eliminates by design.

8) Ferdinand Lundberg comes next, his America's Sixty Families is chock full of information that makes a lot of plain sense. One could do worse not reading all of his works including those authored in collaboration with others.

9) George Orwell, particularly 1984 but also Animal Farm and Aldous Huxley Brave New World, etc. Both of the social engineering experiments in Brave New World and 1984 have been tried and are in the process of being tried in various degrees all around the world up to the present moment. Some would add the works of H. G. Wells. They are all linked together because they were all insiders and involved directly with the international plot to rule the world.

10)? We can't think of anything that is indispensable to have read on the subject of money, finance, banking, economics, etc. that would have told you anything more than what this collection can tell you, but we'll give you one anyway.

Intellectuals by Paul Johnson. Johnson is uneven, but if you read nothing else of his, don't miss this book. It's quite literally what you see when all these supposed super brains are picked apart down to their philosophical underwear. Johnson is terrifically funny and very revealing and what's most concerning is the effect these people, many of them unscrupulous rascals and scoundrels, had on their societies. Why we bother with any of them is beyond reason. I'm being kind.

So, there it is. Hats off to any and all I can hear from who have read any or all of these works.

Merry Christmas!
