‘Free State of Jones’: Pushback Against Injustice

History is full of drama and conflict. A new movie illustrates a chapter of Civil War history when Mississippi  citizens followed their conscience and used their limited guns to form a militia and pushback against slavery and economic injustice.

Via: Why I Wrote The Free State Of Jones by Victoria E. Bynum

I wrote The Free State of Jones: Mississippi’s Longest Civil War for professional and personal reasons. As both a historian and an individual, I am on the hunt for ordinary people who commit extraordinary acts. I am especially drawn to those who confront systems of power in unlikely ways alongside unlikely allies. In Civil War Jones County, Mississippi, deep in the so-called “solid” South, some 100 ordinary white farmers banded together to fight against the Confederate Army (a few of my distant kin were among them). Doing so earned them the label of outlaws. But outlaw means different things to different people. To pro-Confederate Mississippians, these were cowardly deserters. The core members of the Knight band, however, viewed themselves as principled Unionists.

In my book, I struggled against writing a “Great Man” history; I did not want to portray Newt Knight as the “Rambo” of Jones County dissent. Rather, I dug deep into historical records from NC, SC, GA, and MS, to uncover the cultural and class roots of those families who contributed the greatest number of participants in the Jones County uprising. I emphasized how earlier historical events—for example, the American Revolution and the opening of the Southwestern frontier—shaped attitudes toward authority and government among these plain folks of the Old South.”

‘I’m Forever Blowing Bubbles’ Sing The Globalists To Fleece The Public

 I’m Forever Blowing Bubbles

Lyrics

Verse 1

I’m dreaming dreams,
I’m scheming schemes,
I’m building castles high.
They’re born anew,
Their days are few,
Just like a sweet butterfly.
And as the daylight is dawning,
They come again in the morning.

Chorus

I’m forever blowing bubbles,
Pretty bubbles in the air,
They fly so high,
Nearly reach the sky,
Then like my dreams,
They fade and die.
Fortune’s always hiding,
I’ve looked everywhere,
I’m forever blowing bubbles,
Pretty bubbles in the air.

 

Economic bubbles are generated when governments work together with monopolies and cartels. The biggest monopoly is the Federal Reserve Bank, a privately owned monopoly that prints money out of nothing and charges principal and interest to the swindled debtor. Since the 1933 bank holiday by President Roosevelt, American taxpayers have been exploited by a ‘debt-money‘ system. This system ony creates the principal when a loan is made, the interest that is charged to the debtor is not created, so, like a game of musical chairs, only some of the debtors can pay off their loans. 

A debt-money system by definition is a fraud because it demands the impossible. There is not enough money in the economy for all the debtors to pay the principal+ interest because only the principal enters the economy. So debt must increase and we all, no matter how productive or wealthy, become slaves to a private monopoly enforced by the government.

Look at history: the South Sea Bubble, The French Mississippi Bank Bubble, The Roaring  20s Bubble and the crash of ’29, The numerous real estate bubbles, stock market bubbles, Dot-Com Bubble, Housing Bubble, Higher Education Bubble, Obamacare, all involve government in partnership with cartels and monopolies.

It’s a formula that worked in the past, is working right now, and will work in the future.

 Government + Monopoly =’Bubbles R Us’

Monopoly = 2 Big 2 Fail = Profits are private and only for the privileged few, while losses are public and become debts the taxpayers will pay.
