Bernanke taught rats to behave
His fiat he tauight them to crave
By making them think
There's value in ink
Their minds he did quickly enslave

our fiat journey

is a fait accompli'


i.e. the rat must always follow a path constrained by policy. it's easy to condition consumers in a non-empirical world. there are no exogenous forces in the maestros laboratory. the room temperatue is always 68, the food arrives, along channels constructed to guide the rat. there is fresh straw, girl rats, and rest breaks from the grueling rat race.

Time To Stop Monsanto And The US Supreme Court

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 26, 2013 12:15 AM
"..Reading about the case before it came before the court, I found Mr.
Bowman's argumentation neither very strong nor very interesting. In fact, he
might as well be on Monsanto's payroll. Mr. Bowman knew that many of the
seeds he was buying were of Monsanto's Roundup Ready variety, and he had
been buying these seeds at full price on previous occasions, even earlier
the same year. Which is why he sprayed the late crop in question with
another Monsanto product, the Roundup herbicide. The first reports are that
the Supreme Court Appears to Defend Patent on Soybean.
"Why in the world," Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. asked, "would
spend any money to try to improve the seed if as soon as they sold the first
one anybody could grow more and have as many of those seeds as they want?"

I'll get back to this, but one thing should be clear: People have spend time
and effort, blood sweat and tears, throughout history, to improve seeds. Why
would that stop with Monsanto? Because they spend money? Nobody ever had the
idea that their improved seeds would be eligible for patents. Along comes
the chemical industry, takes the seeds that have undergone all these
generations of improvements, changes them a little bit, and voila! owns them
outright. No, really.
" ...
"Monsanto sued small farmers to protect seed patents, report says

In its report, called Seed Giants vs US Farmers, the [Center for Food Safety] said it had tracked numerous law suits that Monsanto had brought against farmers and found some 142 patent infringement suits against 410 farmers and 56 small businesses in more than 27 states. In total the firm has won more than $23 million from its targets, the report said.

However, one of those suits, against Indiana soybean farmer Vernon Hugh Bowman, is a potentially landmark patent case that could have wide implications for genetic engineering and who controls patents on living organisms. The CFS and SOS are both supporting Bowman in the case, which will be heard in the Supreme Court later this month.

"Corporations did not create seeds and many are challenging the existing patent system that allows private companies to assert ownership over a resource that is vital to survival and that historically has been in the public domain," said Debbie Barker, an expert with SOS and one of the report's co-authors. Another co-author, CFS legal expert George Kimbrell, said victory in the Bowman case could help shift that balance of power back to farmers. "The great weight of history and the law is on the side of Mr Bowman and farmers in general," he said.

The report also revealed the dominance that large firms and their genetically altered crops have in the US and global market. It found that 53% of the world's commercial seed market is controlled by just three firms – Monsanto, DuPont and Syngenta.

Meanwhile genetically-altered commodity crops – and thus the influence of patent protection – have spread to become overwhelmingly dominant. In the US some 93% of soybeans and 86% of corn crops come from such seeds.

Yes sirree, you heard that right: patents on living organisms. Also known as a licence to kill (among other things). And if a farmer cannot own his seeds, what about his animals? Or what if Monsanto figures out a gene variation that limits your own personal risk of a disease, say, cancer? Does it own you outright then? Or will it only give you the choice between becoming a debt slave or dying young?

And in this specific court case, it doesn't even stop there:

of the culture evolves into a "jobs program" to sustain adherence to the

All part of the zionist plan to control ALL THE WOLRD. 

who controls the food supply controls the people;

Who controls the energy can control whole continents;

Who controls the money can control the world.”

 Henry Kissinger, 1973 (as quoted by


“Today, America would be outraged if U.N. troops entered LA to restore order.  Tomorrow they will be greatful. 

This is especially true if they were told there is an outside threat from beyond, whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all peoples of the world will plead to deliver them from this evil.  The one thing every man fears is the unknown.

When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well-being granted to them by the world government.”

Henry Kissinger, 1991(as transcribed by a swiss delegate at a Bilderberg meeting.)

WB, have at it:

Jamie Dimon says to Analyst on conference call "That's why I'm richer than you"

Analyst was comparing UBS 13% to JPM 10% capital requirement and argued UBS was the safer bet for investors.

Obviously nowhere is mentioned how ridiculous this whole fucking farce is that the BANK can get away with only 10% or 13% capital requirements and loan out the rest. Money created from thin air loaned out over and over and over again creating massive flows of interest returns for the elite families who are the few relevant stake holders of the banks. They wrote their own legislation on how much they can loan out and they created their own "charters" to establish their businesses as money making monopolies.

It's all bullshit.

you can confuse an algorithm the same way you confuse a rat. some online games for instance are programmed for a fixed win% no matter which way you bet. you bet red, and black wins, you bet black and red wins. you confuse the algorithm by betting black and red, in slightly different amounts, or by setting up complex combinations of black red and green. you just have to be smarter than the rat.

Speaking of "Rats and Men,"

a link to an excellent article called "Rat Trap:"

As many of us may remember, allegories of

"Rabbits and Men" inside "Watership Down"

A difference of degree between rats and men is that men work at being better at controlling other men as slaves, & USE their understanding of the psychology to do that. Generally speaking, 99% of the science of psychology is employed to drive other people MORE insane!

Since the overall society is controlled by those who are the best at being dishonest, and backing that up with violence, because they benefit from that overall system of fraud and robbery, science and technology is primarily employed to become better at being dishonest and violent, and therefore, deliberately construct better "rat traps."

Of course, the supremely paradoxical problem for human beings is that the oldest and best developed social science is warfare, and success in warfare was based on deceits. As information became more important than power, especially because information enabled harnessing inanimate energy to human purposes, War Kings morphed into Fraud Kings.

Therefore, the title of the this article is totally appropriate! Fiat Scientists are practising the science of fraud, backed by force, to control other people. Technologies for domesticating animals were applied to domesticate other human beings. Thus, the Fiat Scientists are sophisticated slave masters, deliberately employing the most scientifically advanced knowledge of psychology, etc., to control other people. That psychology evolved during the long history of human ecology, where the majority of the population has adapted for many generations to live as slaves, while small groups have developed to become the slave masters. Thus, what is allegorically like rats and men, or rabbits and men, may be described as being like the Zombie Sheeple, and the Vicious Wolves, that take up their niches in human ecology.


Psychological explanations are too superficial, unless they are connected to their ecological selection pressures. The ruling classes, our current Fraud Kings, who are Fiat Scientists, are metaphorically "evil." However, unless better scientific solutions are developed towards the purposes of resolving the chronic political problems, which are innate to the nature of life, then merely focusing on psychological explanations for the apparent evils of the elites, and the apparent stupidities of the slaves, is NOT ENOUGH!

[KR411] Keiser Report: Media Moron Mockery
Posted on February 26, 2013 by stacyherbert

Radical Marijuana's picture

Yeah, blindman, that phrase used by Keiser "trickle down stupidity" reminds me of the saying that "the fish rots from the head."

I have often said similar things about the longer term social consequences of FRAUD BECOMING TRIUMPHANT upon the general population that adapts to accept that situation. Since the biggest bullies GET AWAY with their runaway financial frauds, and are able to use their profits from previous frauds to reinvest in more prospective frauds, by using their financial power to buy more control over political power, so that they can commit crimes with impunity, because the biggest gangsters, the banksters, HAVE TAKEN CONTROL OF THE GOVERNMENT, the basic concepts of jurisprudence become debased beyond comprehension!

Therefore, the whole society gradually becomes stupider and stupider, to the point where a more objective observer would perceive that level of stupidity as being insanity! The use of Orwellian language becomes more and more utterly bizarre, until the meaning of language itself breaks down, which presages the psychotic breakdown of the entire system.

That episode by Keiser discusses the ways that the general population is debased and degenerates, due to them adapting to survive inside of society more and more controlled by legalized lies. LIES BACKED BY VIOLENCE DO NOT CARE ABOUT MORE TRUTH, BECAUSE THEY DO NOT HAVE TO CARE. Therefore, arguments based upon evidence and logic cease to matter. Instead, those become not only a practical waste of time to develop and present, but moreover, become dangerous to advance, since they WILL be responded to by violence to back up those lies which are being criticized.

People who live inside a society which has become almost totally dominated by the Fraud Kings are personally more successful, and get will get hired and promoted, the more apparently incompetent that they are, because their real jobs are to be professional liars and immaculate hypocrites, which assist the Fraud Kings get away with more frauds.

"Truth" and "Justice" become nothing more than sublime transcendental poetry, which have an INVERSE RELATIONSHIP TO REALITY, since reality is controlled by the triumph of frauds. Thus, the "justice" system becomes a vicious cycle of mainstream morons, adapting to live inside of systems of legalized lies. Those mainstream morons become more "successful" the more they agree to be stupider, by agreeing to deliberately ignore facts, and critical thinking, in order to go along to get along with runaway systems of TRIUMPHANT FINANCIAL FRAUDS!

The entire "education" system reflects those social facts, since its REAL PURPOSE is to dumb people down, so that they will not understand how blatantly fraudulent, and indeed, utterly absurd, is the privatized fiat "money" made out of nothing as debt system.

INSIDE OF THAT SYSTEM, BILLIONS AND BILLIONS OF DOLLARS ARE SPENT ON EXTRAVAGANT FICTIONAL ENTERTAINMENT, WHILE RELATIVELY NOTHING IS SPENT ON PRESENTING REALITY. Those who profit from that overall runaway social insanity have every possible advantage to advance fictions, while those who might want to advance perceptions of social realities have comparatively few resources to do that, but rather, those who want to present more radical truth about civilization are at the back end of the system of legalized lies, backed by violence, who will be punished, rather than rewarded, for not agreeing with the biggest bullies' bullshit views about that civilization. The triumph of financial fraud is the triumph of fiction over reality!

Unfortunately, as far as I can tell, there are NO practical ways to do anything about that political problem. (About the ONLY thing we can actually do is develop our macabre sense of humour, as that is illustrated by the work of williambanzai7.) We are stuck inside a society dominated by trillionaire mass murderers. They already so totally control our society with systematic legalized lies, backed by legalized violence, that the majority of the mainstream ARE ALREADY MORONS, because they have already adapted to be slaves, that take pride in their own stupidity. Thus, there has been "TRICKLE DOWN STUPIDITY" from the longer term triumph of frauds being able to take almost complete control over the whole civilization, so that the mass media, and educational institutions, are all compromised to the point where most of what they assert is CRAZY!

The overwhelming majority of "information" that most people receive is designed to continue to brainwash them to believe in bullshit. There is usually no individual career success in doing anything else, but rather, waking up to more radical truth tends to backfire badly, by destroying the individual's ability to have a successful career inside of those established systems.

It was usually better for most individuals to "wake up" later in life, rather than earlier, because their career would no longer do well, IF they stopped being able to take for granted Huge Lies as being the "truth." INSIDE OF A SOCIETY DOMINATED BY A FUNDAMENTALLY FRAUDULENT FINANCIAL ACCOUNTING SYSTEM, THE SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE LIVE ACCORDING TO THE PROCESSES OF TRICKLE DOWN STUPIDITY!

Understanding who Ben Bernake is:

Our leaders are not chosen for their intelligence or achievement but rather because they are able to win the peoples’ trust and are willing to betray it. They are chosen by a small satanic cult – cabalistic bankers and Freemasons – that controls the world’s finances and media. Our ‘leaders’ are junior members of this international cult, called the Order of the Illuminati.”  Henry Makow, Ph.D, “Illuminati – The cult That Hijacked the World”

JR's picture

And that’s why the Fed owners pick benign looking, soft spoken, non-threatening professors such as Bernanke to chair the Fed. It’s Gentle Ben’s job to persuade and lull the people with boredom as the moneylenders use the issue and destruction of their fiat currency created out of nothing “to perpetuate poverty amidst abundance, rendering individuals and nations powerless to protect themselves.” And in the end, subjugate the human race to tyranny.

As Aldous Huxley wrote: “In the light of what we have recently learned about animal behavior in general, and human behavior in particular, it has become clear that control through the punishment of undesirable behavior is less effec­tive, in the long run, than control through the rein­forcement of desirable behavior by rewards, and that government through terror works on the whole less well than government through the non-violent manip­ulation of the environment and of the thoughts and feelings of individual men, women and children.” Thus, the food stamps, subsidized housing, free education and free medical care to temporarily quell the depression among the lower 47% before the grand coup d’etat.

Powerful and illuminating quote!
