Standing Up for Truth

One of the most relevant themes we're focused on here in Brazil these days is the exploding movement for freedom reverberating around the world. Martin Luther King stated that freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed.

Isn't it this demand that is echoing through all these diverse societies these days? And the oppressors, to echo King's language, are not giving up easily, as is being witnessed by Occupy activists everywhere.

Dr. King, though, I don't think really understood why it has always been that way. What causes the oppressor to cling so tenaciously to power is not well understood or broadcast, and needs to be. Norberto Keppe's science of Analytical Trilogy does that.

But the other side of the coin is that to be a fighter against the barbed wired of oppression takes some cojones. And it is this courage that must be summoned from deep inside us if we're to vanquish injustice once and for all.

Liberation from Socio-Economic Power

As I watch the gathering force of the #Occupy and Liberation of the People movements worldwide, I've been considering the impact of power in human life. Lincold talked about how you could test a man's character by giving him power, and we can all use that to slag the visible power brokers that stalk the halls of power. These are the front men and women, the mouthpieces for the New World Order.

But I have been reflecting on how to bring the light to bear on the power behind the throne - for this is certainly the most urgent need.

Eisenhower warned us about the acquisition of unwarranted influence by the military-industrial complex back in the '50s, and this was prescient. But many other of the more ethical front men in history have warned us about a scarier and more dangerous power - financial control by the private banks.

In fact, Rothschild, perhaps the biggest financial manipulator of them all, once clarified it for us: "Give me control of a nation's money and I care not who makes its laws," he said. Chilling stuff for any who understand Norberto Keppe's analysis of the pathology of power.
