The Fifth Freedom


As is my habit on the weekends, I got up last Sunday morning and turned on the television to watch C-Span Book TV.  Thomas E. Woods, author of "Meltdown: A Free-Market Look at Why the Stock Market Collapsed, the Economy Tanked, and Government Bailouts Will Make Things Worse" was speaking at FreedomFest, a libertarian conference held Las Vegas.  Woods is a senior fellow at the Ludwig von Mises Institute and he promotes "Free Markets and Free Trade".  FREE!  FREE!  FREE!


I have to say up front, that there is a lot that I agree with concerning what Thomas Wood's says about today's economists being useful idiots and high paid whores (my words) and how the manipulation of interest rates and government interference in the economy distorts the price system which sends wrong signals to the market causing bad decisions... snowballing into economic insanity and meltdown.  Where we disagree is "on the margins" (pun intended).  

Thomas Woods is a "free trader".  I'm being nice today by calling him "trader" instead of what I normally call these people - which is "traitor".  When I encounter them on the internet, I come out swinging because it's the global "free trade" policies that have destroyed our economy.  No matter how much rhetoric the "free traders" wrap around their philosophy, the facts are that the policies of 'free trade' have failed for our country because capital flows to the locations where the highest return on investment can be had - which happens to be to the countries with the highest populations and the lowest standards of living.  If you are a person who worships at the alter of the abacus, you might consider that a good thing.  If however, you are a person who cares about this country and whether or not the people can find a job that pays enough to feed their family; to save a little for the future; enough to share in the tax burden to maintain the infrastructure and to contribute to the capital pool for building for the future of this country, then you would have to consider people like Thomas Woods as "free traitors" - enemies of our nation.      

But I do owe a debt of gratitude to Thomas E. Woods.  He provided one little snippet of information - just a brief mention about Ludwig Von Mises and his background that is a major dot connected:   

xxx "Now Ludwig von Mises was the great Austrian economist of the twentieth century.  He died in 1973. Let me just point out that  Mises had to flee Nazi controlled Europe where he had been teaching in Europe - teaching in Switzerland for a while and he had to flee eventually not only because he was Jewish but also because what he was teaching was not exactly in conformity with the Nazi economic program.  Mises was talking about the international division of labor and how the market is the best example of human cooperation across borders and what a wondrous thing it is that somehow we can take resources from all over the place and without any central direction we can create wealth. And what an amazing and wonderful thing this is.  Well,   that's not exactly what the autarkic Nazi party wants to hear so they destroyed his papers and his library.  He fled to the United States where he arrived in 1940 in his late 50's almost empty handed, not speaking a word of english and with no paid university position - at a time when every semi-competent, every boob, every marxist could find some employment, there's Mises, one of the great economic geniuses of all time..."   Thomas E.

Ludwig Von Mises

At the mere mention of Nazis, we are supposed to quake and shake, avert our eyes and close our minds.  And there was a time when I would have done that because of a lifetime of conditioning.  But that time is gone forever.  If nothing else, my years of internet activism have proven to me that very little of what I thought I knew about the world was actually true.

To emphasize the point about conditioning, consider how you feel when you look at the picture on the right. 

Do you know what they were fighting against? 


Anti-Comintern Pact

German-Japanese Agreement and Supplementary Protocol, Signed at Berlin, November 25, 1936

Translation, in Department of State, Foreign Relations of the United States: Japan, 1931-1941, II, 153

Agreement Guarding Against the Communistic International

The Imperial Government of Japan and the Government of Germany,

In cognizance of the fact that the object of the Communistic International (the so-called Komintern) is the disintegration of, and the commission of violence against, existing States by the exercise of all means at its command,

Believing that the toleration of interference by the Communistic International in the internal affairs of nations not only endangers their internal peace and social welfare, but threatens the general peace of the world,

Desiring to co-operate for defense against communistic disintegration, have agreed as follows.

..... [More]


Coincidently, I spent the last week researching the international institutions that comprise the economic triad of the Kommunist International:  the United Nations.  The triad consists of the International Labor Organization, the World Bank and IMF and the World Trade Organization.  And what's happening to our country is described in the Germany-Japanese Anti-Komintern Pact - terrorism and disintegration of our economy, social and political organization and as a result, our nation. 

One of the institutions was the International Trade Organization (ITO) that the 1948 U.S. Senate refused to join because it was a threat to our national sovereignty.  But in 1995, enough Republikans and Demokrats voted to join the WTO which is the implementation of the ITO.  And the WTO is breaking down our national sovereignty and causing the disintegration of our nation - exactly what the Leaders of the Kommunist International wanted and precisely what Germany and Japan were fighting against.

Neo-Liberal Economics of the Komintern

In case you missed the inference, what Von Mises was teaching was the "liberal" economics of the Komintern - global "free trade", global economy, international division of labor (exploitation of labor to arbitrage domestic populations), subjugation through deprivation, disintegration of national borders and sovereignty under the deceptive label of "cooperation".  The League of Nations - and it's successor, the United Nations is the Communist International and they are doing everything within our country that was opposed by Japan and Germany. 

Neoliberal "free traitors" have infiltrated and they are running the Republican party.  The funny thing is - that I knew and I've said many times, that they are conservative only in the eastern bloc sense.  Eastern bloc conservatism seeks to conserve the kommunist system.  Neoliberal "free traitors" seek to do the same.  It's just that most of them don't know it.    


This is why real history is not taught in our schools anymore.  In history, one finds the answers as to who is really behind all of the world problems of poverty, ignorance and deprivation.  It is the European aristocracy that is behind this system of subjugation.  They use Fabian Socialism and "free trade" economics to gain control of countries - first by flooding it with imports - making a few wealthy - and impoverishing the majority, the Fabians breakdown and destroy the culture and when the people of a country are beaten down and destroyed, they are then subjugated under the control of the Commonwealth.   So if you were wondering why there are so many Brits and Canadians and Indians who seem to be in control of the dialog in our country, this is why. 


Communist International

"The Commonwealth"

On January 26, 1941, President Roosevelt delivered a message to Congress as the United States prepared for war.  He outlined the 'Four Freedoms' that allegedly the United States would fight to achieve:

In the future days, which we seek to make secure, we look forward to a world founded upon four essential human freedoms.

The first is freedom of speech and expression-everywhere in the world.

The second is freedom of every person to worship God in his way - everywhere in the world.

The third is freedom from want-which, translated into world terms, means economic understandings which will secure to every nation a healthy peacetime life for its inhabitants-everywhere in the world.

The fourth is freedom from fear-which, translated into world terms, means a world-wide reduction of armaments to such a point and in such a thorough fashion that no nation will be in a position to commit an act of physical aggression against any neighbor - anywhere in the world.

It has become clear that we need a Fifth Freedom - the freedom from lies and propaganda.  We need to know the truth of history so that we will not repeat it. 

The "free trade" system that people like Thomas Woods promotes is actually a system of redistribution of wealth - away from developed countries towards the least productive countries with the poorest and most corrupt governments - with poorest being in the sense of competence at  governing.  To the Commonwealth, the objective is domination of territories and the poverty that is created by these policies is a key component of the strategy.  It's a formula they've used throughout recorded history - in country after country.  To promote "free trade" is to promote stratification of society into "The Haves"  and "The Have Nots".   It creates an aristocracy which is antithetical to everything that is American.   It is taking us back to a time when there were beggers and kings, palaces and hovels, poverty, disease and starvation.  Exactly what the European aristocracy wants.
