Big Picture (theory 12000.[2]


"The selfish spirit of commerce knows no country,

and feels no passion or principle

but that of gain."

Thomas Jefferson 1809 (3rd USA President 1801-1809)

-letter to Larkin Smith


"I hope we shall take warning from [past experience] and

crush in its birth the aristocracy of our moneyed corporations,

which dare already to challenge our government

to a trial of strength and

bid defiance to the laws of our country."

Thomas Jefferson 1812

Nov. 12 letter to George Logan


(starting at last 2 words of line 7 and ending at middle of line 11)

we are called upon to appropriate the people's money

"This country, with its institutions,

belongs to the people who inhabit it.

Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing Government,

they can exercise their constitutional right of amending it

or their revolutionary right to dismember or overthrow it."

Abraham Lincoln 1861


- "Abraham Lincoln, 'First Inaugural Address,' 4 March 1861"


"We may congratulate ourselves that this cruel war is nearing its end.

It has cost a vast amount of treasure and blood ...

It has indeed been a trying hour for the Republic;

but I see in the near future a crisis approaching

that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country.

As a result of the war,

corporations have been enthroned

and an era of corruption in high places will follow,

and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign

by working upon the prejudices of the people

until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands

and the Republic is destroyed.

I feel at this moment more anxiety for the safety of my country

than ever before, even in the midst of war.

God grant that my suspicions may prove groundless."

U.S. President Abraham Lincoln Nov. 21 1864

President Lincoln was assassinated less than 4 months later, Apr. 14 1865.

Chase's Calendar of Events 2001 ed. by Sandy Whiteley


After President Lincoln's assassination

many of Lincoln's more insightful writings, were left out

of books and articles written about Lincoln for public consumption.

- "What Lincoln Foresaw ..."


William H. Herndon, Lincoln's lifelong law partner,

gathered together Lincoln's oral history and writings,

and they were eventually published.

- The Hidden Lincoln;

from the Letters and Papers of William H. Herndon

by Emanuel Hertz 1938

- "What Lincoln Foresaw ..."


"It did not take long for the principles of [Corporate] advertising and


developed to sell consumer goods

to be applied to the 'sale' of political ideas and candidates.

One of the first such applications came in the selling of World War I.

In a book first published in 1920

and entitled 'How We Advertised America', George Creel,

a publisher and head of [President Woodrow Wilson's]

Committee On Public Information,

proudly divulged how he and his committee

used the principles of advertising

to convince Americans to go to war against Germany.

Creel's success inspired others, [Republicans and]

most notably Adolf Hitler,

to use and develop these techniques on a grand scale."

In 1934 the Republicans and their Corporations

used the same propaganda techniques

to destroy Upton Sinclair, the Democrat's very popular candidate

for Governor of California.

It cost the Republicans 10 Million dollars.

The most ever spent on an election up to that date.

This was the origin of the negative "Media Campaign".

and the Birth of Media Politics by Greg Mitchell 1992

- How We Advertised America

by George Creel


Wealthy Individuals and their Multinational Corporations, and

Hitler used the same propaganda techniques

to take over and control Germany and America.

Hitler funded, "America First" activities and media propaganda,

at "a million dollars per annum".

Wealthy Individuals and their Multinational Corporations

funded, "America First" activities and media propaganda,

at many million dollars per annum.

They wanted to convince Americans to stay out of the war,

not prepare for war, and seek a peaceful negotiation with Hitler.

"... [This was] revealed by J. Edgar Hoover

in a secret memorandum to the President dated Feb. 23 1942

now declassified at Hyde Park."

FDR defined Fascism as: Corporate control of Government.




At the end of WWII,

Wealthy Individuals and their Corporations

hired Nazis to manage their Corporations,

based on a compatible world view and

a proven record for getting things done.

Fascism has a clear track record of using any means necessary, to win;

including Public Relations, Psychological Warfare, torture, and murder.


Multinational Corporations created and profited from

Nazi slave labor camps and death camps.


"Free Trade" before and during WWII

was a code word for

arming and supplying Hitler.

- Trading With The Enemy by Charles Higham


"Free Trade" is now a code word for

Corporate control of Government.

Many USA voters consider Fascism to be evil.


Fascism has recently become more PR savvy

- Old Nazis, The Republican Party, and The New Right

by Chip Berlet, and

- American Swastika by Charles Higham.


A little known secret: the world will

run out of cheap oil in 2003.

The Multinational Corporations and

the Governments they control

cooked the books to make it look like we have

41 more years of cheap oil, 2041.

But we really only have 3 more years, 2003,

till the retail price of US gasoline will

start to increase exponentially.

One possible example (in 2 year increments):

2 $/gal, 3 $/gal, 5 $/gal, 8 $/gal, 13 $/gal, 21 $/gal,

34 $/gal, 55 $/gal, 89 $/gal, 144 $/gal, etc.

- "The End Of Cheap Oil"

Scientific American March 1998

- Censored 1999



George Bush and Al Gore have

direct ties to and have received

major campaign money from

the Multinational Oil Corporations.

- The Buying of the President 2000

by Charles Lewis


Bush's running mate, Dick Cheney

is a CEO of a Multinational Oil Service Corporation.

- Democracy Now archived radio show Jul. 25 2000


By 2003, the end of cheap oil will be acknowledged,

an energy crisis declared,

and many new emergency federal policies

will be quickly implemented.

Wealthy individuals and

their Multinational Oil Corporations

have invested in the US Presidency

so they will be in control of the writing

of any new US energy policy

during the next Presidential Administration.


So what about the energy alternatives

like solar cell generated electricity?

The Multinational Oil Corporations own and control

the research, development, production, and distribution

of solar cell generated electricity.

- Who Owns The Sun? by Daniel Berman and Ralph Nader (contributor)


The Multinational Oil Corporations

most likely will force the Public to

use up the remaining, increasingly expensive,

profitable and scarce oil,

and delay as long as possible

the availability of

abundant cheap solar cell generated electricity.


The global corporate economy

depends on cheap oil to power their machines.

After 2003 it will start to fracture,

forming many smaller local economies.

Multinational Corporations will attempt to obtain,

by any means possible,

a supply of abundant cheap energy for themselves.

This Corporate control of Public Government

has led to Militarism:

the maintenance of a military

so large and expensive that

the military needs to

continually conquer and cannibalize others

to supply its ever increasing need for

resources, to sustain itself.




The military requires huge amounts of oil

to power their war machines.

Most of the recent wars are for the control of oil:

(1) The Gulf War was about oil.

(2) the so called drug war in Colombia

is really a war for Colombia oil,

(3) the war in the Balkans was about an oil pipeline,

as described in the article

"The Role of Caspian Sea Oil in the Balkan Conflict"

Women Against Military Madness Nov. 1998


- Censored 2000



After 2003, the number of such oil wars

will increase exponentially.

The end of cheap oil, will effect everything.

- Beyond the Limits by Donella Meadows
