Darrell concludes his discussion of the destruction of Western Civilization and argues that it has been replaced by a tiny ruling elite.
Hello, this is Darrell Castle with today’s discussion. We are continuing our series on Western Civilization, its destruction, and what that means for us today.
In last week’s episode, we talked about “financialization,” and how banks have used up all their money-printing and credit-bubble weapons in an effort to stave off the deflationary collapse in asset values that they have caused. In closing last week, I posed a question referring to central banks: What else can they do? Today we are going to discuss the answer to that question – the last nail in the coffin of Western Civilization, and the opening of the door to total government. Fascist tyranny will be the elimination of cash. I believe the criminalizing of cash and the introduction of a cashless monetary system in almost here. There is much evidence to support my view. On January 22nd, the largest bank in Norway, DNB, called for the complete and total elimination of cash. Many of their local branches have already stopped dealing in cash, and the same thing is happening in Sweden and Denmark, as well, according to the International Business Times. The idea is being sold as something that will be really good for Norwegian society. Eliminating cash, it’s claimed, will help authorities crack down on criminal activities such as terrorism, drug trafficking and money laundering. Continue reading
Hello! This is Darrell Castle. Today we’re going to continue our discussion of western civilization and how it met its demise. Today’s discussion will deal primarily with another one of the chief weapons that those who seek to destroy our civilization have used to accomplish their ends.
That weapon is financialization. Financialization can be defined as the dictionary defines it, and that is, “an increase in the size and importance of a country’s financial sector relative to its overall economy.” I prefer a layman-like explanation, and that is, turning everything involving the human experience into a financial transaction that profits an enterprise and the State.
The State needs profitable enterprises that generate payroll tax. Thus the State becomes a partner in financializing all human experience. For example, the decisions that we make in our daily lives. Simple decisions become financial decisions. Continue reading
Hello! Today I’m continuing our discussion of Western civilization, how it met its demise, and what that means for us today. To do that, we’re going to be talking about one of the primary weapons used by those who seek Western civilization’s destruction. That weapon is depopulation. It is evident to me that there is a conscious effort to control the human population by means of cultural and biological changes. Those changes are being applied primarily in Western nations, although it is possible that the cultural changes are simply more effective there. This is not a new phenomenon, although its effects are becoming too obvious for us to ignore. The people who seek to kill us, to see our bloodlines die out from the earth, normally use the brute force of government to accomplish their schemes. I recommend R.J. Rummel’s great book published in 1994 called, Death By Government. That book is a real eye opener. Mr. Rummel has chapters devoted to those regimes that killed more than 10 million people, of which there are three. The Soviet Union is the all time leader with 61 million. Communist China and Nazi Germany round out the list. He also has chapters for those regimes that have killed between one and ten million people, of which there are many. The point is that governments have killed a lot of people, by Mr. Rummel’s account. Continue reading
Hello! This is Darrell Castle. Today we’re going to continue our discussion of “how the rule of law in Western civilization met its demise in the west, and how that’s a terrible thing from which the United States may never recover.”
I was going to use the president’s State of the Union speech as a backdrop this week, much as I did last week with his speech announcing his new gun measures, but after listening to the speech and reading over the transcript, I just can’t do it. I can’t discuss it.
All the self glorifying pretentious preening is more than anyone can stand. The best evaluation of the speech was a tweet by David Burge who blogs under the name “Iowa Hawk.” Mr. Burge said, “Once again, a quarterback doing a touchdown dance after being tackled for a safety.”
Instead of that, we journey back in time 800 years to the signing of the Magna Carta. In June of the year 1215, which was 800 years ago last June, much of what we take for granted in our lives had its origin in that great charter of liberty, with such concepts as trial by jury, with a jury made up of people like us, not people of the king’s own choosing; the right to due process of law before any criminal or civil penalty could be imposed upon us; the right of citizens to be armed and not just the king’s men; the right of equal protection of the law, which is another way of saying, “We are all equal under the law, presidents and ordinary citizens alike.” Continue reading
Hello! This is Darrell Castle. Today, I will begin a discussion of Western civilization, how its destruction happened, and what that means for us in today’s world. As a backdrop for what has happened to the rule of law in America, I will use the President’s recent speech that he made on guns.
The rule of law was one of the columns holding up Western civilization. It can be described with the old adage, “We are a nation of laws and not of men,” but a better one would be “that the law applies equally to the leaders, the elite – our rulers – as it does to us.” Both concepts are completely dead today. They came out of the Magna Carta 800 years ago, but today they are dead. That does not bode well for the future of America. This discussion will attempt to begin an explanation of what happens in Western societies when the moral authority, that was once Western civilization, is destroyed.
The president’s actions violate at least the Second and 10th Amendments, which are known as the Bill of Rights. It also violates Article I, Section I, of the U.S. Constitution, which vests all legislative authority in Congress. The president apparently has no regard whatsoever for that most precious thing he endeavors to destroy. The president obviously understands that he is limited in the exercise of dictatorial powers without the cooperation of Congress, so he prepared a very well-acted, emotional stage play to garner the sympathy and support of the American people in the exercise of his dictatorial power. His speech was short on details and long on emotion, leaving us in the dark about what hard steps he will actually take to enact his policies. I will cover only the main anatomy of this speech, because it is the principle that interests me. Continue reading
