“What are we going to do when we encounter evil in the world?”
Richard’s talk with author, publisher and filmmaker Catherine Austin Fitts is an event, an erudite, freewheeling exploration of politics, philosophy, economics and the nature of humanity. Historians and truth seekers, they discuss the micro and macro levels of control in our world.
The need to decentralize economic power takes center stage. Our world, our lives, are very much intermediated by governments and corporations that diminish our connection with the world, and with our own strength. The layers of theft and fraud in the U.S. government, non-profits and banking and securities organizations are so dense that we cannot easily see their true machinations.
Topics include a who’s who of contemporary corruption, including Enron, Epstein, Clinton, JP Morgan and Lockheed Martin. They touch on the mysterious Mr Global and the nature of international power, including the struggles between inter-generational capital and the serenely timeless Vatican.
Richard and Catherine discuss their paths to knowledge as a process: first, of coming to grips with the totality of evil within the establishment; then, the jolt of realizing how they had, unwittingly, been complicit, and the potential ramifications of breaking free of that system.
They also look at the nature of human incredulity in the face of seemingly absurd conspiracy theories, and the need to follow the facts that bear these theories out. Catherine also introduces a financial disclosure form which reveals the financial ramifications of vaccine injury to individuals and their families, especially in the event of a child being in need of lifelong care.
The ultimate takeaway is how to fight the power (and their economic power over you) by opting out of the machine in your daily life. We have the intelligence and the ability to build a new, better alternative based on autonomy.
