In a series of talks given at a 2006 Veterans for Peace Conference, John Perkins gives a three part series of talks on our long history of wars and how they are driven by our imperialistic desires to achieve worldwide dominance at the expense of weaker nations. Although you may have some disagreements with his conclusions, these are very revealing and highly educational for people who care about the TRUTH! In addition to his talks in this series a couple of very interesting related posts are added. If you haven’t heard him speak about this then these are very highly recommended!

People versus the Banks
REPRINTED FROM VETERANS TODAY
I’ve seen lots of funny men
Some will rob you with a six-gun
And some with a fountain pen.And as through your life you travel
Yes, as through your life you roam
You won’t never see an outlaw
Drive a family from their home.—Woody GuthrieNote: If you are not in a position to read this long article, you can get the general picture by reading the following two brief sections (i) summary (below) and (ii) parting words (at the end).”Another shortcut is a recent Radio Sinoland interview:
Summary: A successful revolution against tyrants presupposes familiarity with the tyrants’ arsenal. Earlier articles analyzed a few weapons in this arsenal: Sunshine Bribery, Cloak-and-Dagger, Contrived Terror, False-Flag Operations, Absence of Real Democracy, and the Conspiracy Theory Bogeyman. That massive arsenal, in turn, points to just one promising revolutionary strategy. The present article explores an additional weapon in this stupendous arsenal: banking. To begin with, we live now in an upside-down world of perpetual war, tyranny, injustice, materialism, selfishness, starvation, monstrous income inequalities, and ever-growing prospects of human extinction. But this, by itself, constitutes a paradox, because our planet can comfortably provide a decent life for every soul on it. The chaos and suffering must therefore be traced, at least in part, to our rulers.
The ruling clique controlling the U.S., U.K., and most other countries in the world is probably made up of billionaires, generals, and spooks. The best guess is that, at the apex of the pyramid of power and riches, there resides a handful of banking families (bankers for short) dedicated to an inter-generational project of enslaving, and perhaps even exterminating, humanity. We have been warned repeatedly over the centuries that, sooner or later, humanity will have to wage an all-out war on these villainous bankers. A brief history of Central Banking shows that in their war against us, the bankers have not only relied on mind control, human failings, co-option, sunshine bribery, rigged elections, contrived terror, and false flag operations, but that they often murdered influential opponents and just about anyone else who could possibly impede their project of world domination.
