The Financial Hijacking of the American Revolution
How America was tricked into becoming capitalist
Can America’s gigantic public debt – officially nearly breathtaking $18,000 billion – at all be paid back?
The answer is that the debt amazingly easy is refundable – provided that you know the trick!
THE FINANCIAL HIJACKING OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION – HOW AMERICA WAS TRICKED INTO BECOMING CAPITALIST is the title of a stand-alone book that represents the 17 last chapters of Part 2 of Per Lundgren’s trilogy CAPIATLISM REVEALED – AN OUTSTANDING ECONOMIC AND POLITICAL DECEPTION. It’s about a little known, but dramatic period in US history, marked by deceit and deception, and with major consequences down to our days. Events which occurred when the nation was barely born.
To understand how America was lured to become capitalist one must go back in history until the early 1700s and the living conditions of the original 13 American colonies under the leadership of social visionaries like BENJAMIN FRANKLIN. There is, as many Americans know, a period in American colonial history called “the good years”, then there for quite some time (about 1720- 1750) was a relatively, yes, even a startlingly, developed social welfare in the American colonies, despite those at that time were under the jurisdiction of the English Crown, and were therefore subordinate England ́s will, the motherland where conditions were quite different. In Benjamin Franklin’s society during “the good years” were unemployment and social exclusion virtually non- existent, and the economy flourished. And of this prosperity was particularly Benjamin Franklin the great architect. A note from the American colonial history: Benjamin Franklin visited England several times as colonial official representative. At one point the English officials asked how it was the colonies managed to collect enough taxes to build poor houses, and how they were able to handle the great burden of caring for the poor. Franklin’s reply was most revealing: “We have no poor houses in the Colonies, and if we had, we would have no one to put in them, as in the Colonies there is not a single unemployed man, no poor and no vagabonds.” He went on to explain the underlying reason for this: “It is because in the Colonies we issue our own paper money. We call it Colonial Script, and we issue only enough to move all goods freely from the producers to the Consumers; and as we create our money, we control the purchasing power of money, and have no interest to pay.” (Quotations are taken from the internet).
Less well known is perhaps the background to these “good times”. The root cause of these was Franklin’s deep knowledge and understanding of the old and extremely smooth functioning English socio-economic TALLY SYSTEM, which had been invented by the medieval King Henry I, to then have been applied with great success in England for hundreds of years. As said, Benjamin Franklin was very familiar with this system, and introduced an enhanced version of it into of the colonies, first in Pennsylvania, later spreading to other colonies. Henry I’s tally system was characterized by that it was the king, and he alone (“the Crown”), who had the full power over society’s money, the so-called tally sticks, not bankers so that in a capitalist society. Franklin did not use wooden sticks (tally sticks) as Henry I, but instead paper money (colonial scripts) with the same function, manufactured and administered by the Colonial Board of Directors (the popular representation). What is important here was thus that in Franklin ́s society was it the colonial Board alone, not bankers, that had power over society’s money. Which was a big thorn in contemporary English banker’s eyes, and the reason that England finally decided to sabotage Franklin’s socio-economic system. This was done partly in 1751, partly in 1764, when the English these years introduced together two Franklin ́s system countervailing laws in the colonies, the so-called CURRENCY ACTS, laws that basically forbade Franklin’s tally-like system, and instead decreed a Central Banking economic, ie capitalist, principle, that society’s money was something that should be lent at interest in banks.
It was not long after the laws’ introduction until the colonial societies had drastically changed for the worse. Unemployment, social exclusion and poverty quickly became communities new hallmark. This caused naturally over time a growing and widespread discontent among the public,
especially as “the good years” were not remote in time, times people remembered; they had SOMETHING BETTER TO COMPARE WITH. (In this connection it may be mentioned that the famous British writer GEORGE ORWELL in his classic novel “1984” discusses the question of how a given power elite should act to maintain its once attained power. A risk to the power elite is that the “masses”, ie the public, will have reason to rebel. Here is what Orwell says: “The masses never revolt of their own accord, and they never revolt merely because they are oppressed. Indeed, so long as they are not permitted to have STANDARDS OF COMPARISON (my caps), they never become aware that they are oppressed.” Orwell also says: “If it once became general, wealth would confer no distinction.” It was the mentioned great dissatisfaction among the public with a deteriorating situation in society, nota bene, that was the true cause of the American Revolution, nothing else. Revolutionaries ideal was the recollection they still had of “the good years”; it was the restoration of Franklin’s society that was revolutionaries dream and goal. Several generations of American youth have subsequently been brought up with a society lie, ie falsification of history, it was yearning for freedom from English supremacy that was the primary cause of the revolution in the 1700s, but that is not true. It was the desire to restore “the good years” that triggered the revolution. The desire for freedom and independence from England arose only at a later stage.
As we know, won the colonists over the British and gained their independence. But it was a Pyrrhic victory, it would quickly prove, because they certainly won the battle against the English Crown, but lost the war against the English bankers. Early on, when the new proud nation of United States of America was formed, came namely, betrayal and treachery into the picture. The US Constitution is in many respects a masterpiece as the basis for popular democracy. But the observant sees already in at least some part of the text of the Constitution clear evidence of the conspiracy lurking in the background. For it is obvious to the perceptive, that the revolutionary ideals, with Franklin ́s social system in the high seat, deliberately are sabotaged. It was not like the revolutionaries had initially hoped, that the state, ie the Government – the extended arm of the people – alone got the power over society’s foundation, ie society’s money, but the state had to accept to share that power with, should occur, a much stronger party, which would very soon enter the stage, namely A CENTRAL BANK, which would not serve the people, but private shareholders. All this can be read between the lines “of those who have eyes to see”, that there were forces, at least in part, behind the US Constitution that did not see the good of the people, but which primarily served another, private, power. And these dark forces’ primary tool at the time was Alexander Hamilton, who was to become America’s first Secretary of the Treasury. As early as 1791, Hamilton was the man behind America’s first central bank, “First Bank of the United States”, formally privately owned to 80%, but in reality privately to l00%. From then on, money was something that was lent at interest by banks, ultimately by the central bank. This also applied to the state (government) itself, which had to adapt to these conditions in the form of treasury. It is fair to say that the US has been capitalist since February 25, 1791, when the first US central bank was chartered for the next 20 years by Congress, a central bank that only formally was national.
Today, after 224 years of uninterrupted capitalism/Central Banking economics in the US, it is perhaps appropriate to summarize a retrospect of this socio-economic system. 224 years in a row should be enough to fairly evaluate the system. If the evaluation is based on the revolutionary ideals, have these ever been achieved during these 224 years? The answer is no. Not even during the boom years after World War II did the nation reached up to an all-inclusive prosperity like that of Franklin’s society. And what about American society today? Most likely, the American society never has been more unequal and in debt than today, with widespread unemployment, poverty and many times apathy. In fact, the American dream is the biggest myth of the capitalist system.
The question then is whether these gloomy findings can be altered in any way? Well, I guess many would agree that it will not work through more of the same (capitalism), concerning 224 years of failure. Per Lundgren suggests in his trilogy ́s third part a new socio-economic system, in which the
basics are borrowed from Henry I’s and Benjamin Franklin ́s respective tally system, but significantly modernized by Per, including the addition of several “keys” based on inter alia Per ́s math skills, for it to work smoothly. Through these keys it is possible to achieve a thriving societal economy entirely without inflation, that is beneficial for almost all people. But before any change can occur, people must come to the realization that the current system represents not only a huge problem, but actually a gigantic crime, and THE UNDERSTANDING why this is so. It is for this purpose Per Lundgren has written his trilogy.
The US Constitution is very cleverly written by highly talented people from different camps. I am here thinking primarily of ARTICLE 1, SECTION 8, which regulates the Congressional powers. There are not only several LOOPHOLES in the Constitutional text, which actually gradually has enabled the background powers of capitalism/Central Banking economics to finally grip today’s de facto stranglehold on the American nation. Per Lundgren also recognizes four possibilities, which he has chosen to call THE FOUR DOOR OPENERS, to stunningly easily able to correct the current problems troubling capitalist America, including that with a stroke of the pen come to terms with America’s gargantuan debt, and further eliminate virtually all unemployment, a large proportion of crime and recover the true meaning of “the American dream”. In other words, restore Benjamin Franklin ́s good years in America and nearly 250 years too late realizing the American Revolution ideals.
The Financial Hijacking of the American Revolution costs $ 8. That´s a symbolic low amount, so that everyone can afford to buy it and at the same time contribute to us, a small group of enthusiasts, having the opportunity bringing our information to people all over the world and give them a realistic hope for a better future.
