    I saw this a while ago, a must watch for everyone. I always wondered if we can harness the power of bhw to shape the world.

    For example, mass xrummer blasts of porn links to say status quo candidates' sites in an attempt to deindex their sites?

    I believe the most we can do is shape the Internet. However, even on the Internet scale BHW is too small.

    The people on the video are a totally different league. They are not out of the law, they are even not above the law - they are part of the law. And I'm sure the video producers don't even imagine how deep is the rabbit hole.

    I'm not fan of conspiracy theories, but this one... this one is too simple and elegant to be false.

    If they were able to do this then we are able to do a similar covert method to defeat them.

    A buddy of mine sent this a month ago or so. It's pretty cool and gives you an excellent insight how the financial institutions are running. I'm so happy that I don't live in the US.

    There 's no central bank where you live? ;)

    Let me take this opportunity to add a nice trivia:

    The process of how paper money was established (in the video) applied only to the West!

    How did paper money get established in the East? It was less subtle. Genghis Khan conquered all of Asia and at some point, he sent an ultimatum to the cities: "Hand me over all your gold and take this paper instead or I 'll simply cut your head of (if you 're lucky)" :D

    Video was a real eye opener, and definitely worth the watch.

    Yknow all those debts from the Napoleonic Wars mentioned? England only just paid the last of them off a couple of years ago..Real long term debt lol.

    The whole system is corrupted for the benefit of the rich and people at the top.

    I really do not think the money system is corrupted,its just the lack of understanding money and the desire of wanting something quick.

    These are probably the worst things in society,which contribute to the wealth inequality and the elite with so much money.
    1. Fast Food
    2. Push to buy a new car
    3. Push to buy a house

    I know ;) it has always been the case, but its not getting any better.

    I must say I do, money, power, politics, justice, the whole lot is skewed against the ordinary person. We are ruled by an elite who are in the pockets of the rich and judged by an elite who are completely out of touch with the real world. The standard of living is rapidly declining in the west where the rich get richer and the poor get poor poorer, and the gap is growing rapidly. Social mobility getting vastly worse, meaning the average man has less chance of breaking through his caste.

    Also, noone Makes you eat fastfood, buy a car or mortgage your future to buy a house, those are all personal choices. We have always rented our house, and bought cheap second hand cars for a steal. So they may not be flashy, but at least we are not paying debts into our dotage to keep up with an unsustainable lifestyle.

    There are so many people out there that go to a fast food restaurant every day for lunch instead of making it themselves. A person could save up to $1200 a year if they made lunch themselves. As with a car there for some reason people think 100,000 miles is considered high mileage when in reality if you read the manual theres no reason why it shouldn't last at least 200,000 miles. And so many people are bullshited to believe that a house is an investment, when in reality it is not and that you should not go out and get one on a mortgage even if you will need 30 years to pay it off.


    I'm not saying that it is easy to become super rich,but if you have self-control and can balance a check book along with planning for the future. There is are few reasons why you shouldn't be able to retire nicely,and not have to worry about money problems.

    Yeah, I agree with what you say, its definitely possible to save and become better off, but the problem is people are blinded by getting debt, be it on credit cards, mortgages or loans, and once they're hooked in they're in for life in most cases. Now these things have their benefits if used wisely, but they have been abused in recent years to extort money from the masses. My general philosophy is if you don't have the money to pay for something lock stock, then you can't afford it and you shouldn't have it [yet].

    With runaway inflation over the last few decades eroding the value of our currencies it is becoming more and more difficult to move up a bracket. Wages rise much more slowly than the cost of living, and taxes rise even faster. It is not a good situation, and the gap between the rich and poor just keeps on growing.

    True. When it comes to blackhat, no one is more blackhat than the central bankers. Sure BHW is small, and we can't do it alone. Everyone has to stand together, internet and offline, the old and the young, just like the ants in a the movie a Bug's Life.

    In the first video at 05:25 what sport they are playing in the field wearing helmets? Was looking on the internet a long time for this. Seen it in some Hollywood movie few years back. Can't remember the name... squash?
