Letter to Editor: Chris Hedges omits key truths in 'It’s Not Going to Be OK'
Saturday, 07 February 2009 09:39
by Zahir Ebrahim

In the entire 1744 words essay posted by Chris Hedges to truthdig.com on February 02, 2009, and within less than 48 hours which had been reproduced or referenced by at least 92 other locations, the veteran journalist did not once mention the mechanics of the private monopoly cartel of the Federal Reserve System, money as debt, and control of the nation's money supply in the opaque private hands of a demonic cabal deliberately seeding the Great Depression II to provide pretext for all the requisite controls for ushering in world government! Phew! Said it all in one sentence too!

Is the celebrated Chris Hedges, and all those whom he cites in the essay, including the much lauded “arguably the most important intellectual alive”, less knowledgeable than an ordinary nondescript person having only a keyboard, internet connection, and access to public libraries? How can that be? This is the list of distinguished people Chris Hedges mentions who “rang the alarm bells”:

“There are a few isolated individuals who saw it coming. The political philosophers Sheldon S. Wolin, John Ralston Saul and Andrew Bacevich, as well as writers such as Noam Chomsky, Chalmers Johnson, David Korten and Naomi Klein, along with activists such as Bill McKibben and Ralph Nader, rang the alarm bells.”

Wow, that's quite a list, and not a single one of them is quoted for the real sacred cow axioms which seed all the crises in the first place. All the effects are described, but none of the primemover axioms which cause these crises effects, nor what the real overarching globalist agenda really is. Perhaps none of these scholars know anything about any agenda? They are all new-born babies, innocent of Machiavelli 101, innocent of forbidden knowledge, it's all happenstance and shortsighted recklessness of capitalism gone wild for them? The culprit is some vague notion of greedy capitalism, fuzzy corporatism, and jingoistic militarism? No identifiable enemy, nor more crisply identifiable direct primemover cause that can be traced to the effect? None has ever heard of interest-bearing money, and it's monopoly control by private banksters who sit on the very top of the pyramid that is printed on the back of the one dollar U.S. Federal Reserve Note deemed legal tender and who “provide advice on both sides of the balance sheet, and ... do it globally”? Yes this must surely be true, for in the years I spent at MIT, and the subsequent years I spent reading about each new episode of the crimes of empire, I never heard of such a beast from even Noam Chomsky!


The following is the Financial Terrorism News Letter For January-February 2009:

and the following is the Monetary Reform Bibliography put together by an ordinary person without fancy academic titles or accolades from the New York Times:

I invite you to publish both the News Letter and the oped length Introduction from the afore-referenced Monetary Reform Bibliography to provide a counterpoint to all the said scholars' erudite craftsmanship. And I further humbly request that the distinguished Chris Hedges either kindly put this plebeian scribe straight on these really complex matters which apparently I have got entirely wrong, or explain the imperial omissions through which any un co-opted man and woman can drive a tank blindfolded.

Chris Hedges used to be among my favorite writers and I have enjoyed his book “War is a Force that Gives us Meaning”. I hope he will continue to teach and enlighten, continue to probe and unravel in order to uncover effective remedies that can save humanity from the cataclysms to world government, but not according to Huxley's crafty wisdom which almost all respected chroniclers of the crimes of empire inexplicably follow:

Great is truth, but still greater, from a practical point of view, is silence about truth. By simply not mentioning certain subjects... totalitarian propagandists have influenced opinion much more effectively than they could have by the most eloquent denunciations.”
