The problems humanity is presently facing are eerily similar to a period in history called the DARK AGES and they were not an accident but the result of financial corruption, wars and religious strife intentionally concocted, IMHO.
Whether the engineers of such a human calamity are sociopaths, aliens or archons is a matter for further discussion. My purpose is to point out the similarities and there causes.
Six hundred and fifty years ago came the climax of the worst financial collapse in history to date. The 1930s Great Depression was a mild and brief episode, compared to the bank crash of the 1340s, which decimated the human population. The crash, which peaked in 1345 A.D. when the world's biggest banks under went what can only be called a financial disintegration. All credit vanished together, "most trade and exchange stopped, and a catastrophic drop of the world's population by famine and disease followed." Just like the financial disintegration hanging over us now,the collapse of the 1340s was the result of 30-40 years of disastrous financial practices, by which the banks built up huge fictitious ``financial bubbles,'' parasitizing production and real trade in goods. These speculative cancers destroyed the real wealth they were monopolizing, and caused these banks to be effectively bankrupt long before they finally went under."Indeed, the great banking companies were able to survive past 1340 only because news of their deteriorated position had not yet circulated....'' The triumph of this alleged "free trade and free market capitalism" over the honest control of honorable national governments and rulers, rigged the fourteenth century's global human catastrophes, the worst onslaught of death and depopulation in history. SOUND FAMILIAR
In Italy itself, these bankers loaned aggressively to farmers and to merchants and other owners of land, often with the ultimate purpose of owning that land. This led by the 1330s to the wildfire spread of the infamous practice of ``perpetual rents,'' whereby farmers calculated the lifetime rent-value of their land and sold that value to a bank for cash for expenses, virtually guaranteeing that they would lose the land to that bank. As the historian Raymond de Roover demonstrated, the practices by which the fourteenth century banks avoided the open crime of usury, were worse than usury.
The clearest measure of the destruction wrought by the merchants and bankers of Venice
and its ``allies'' in the financial crash of the fourteenth century, succeeded in severely reversing what had been 400-600 years of increasing population growth in Europe, China, and India (altogether, three-fourths of the human population died as an end result) was reversed. The world's population collapsed. Famines, bubonic and pneumonic plagues, and other epidemics killed more than 1/2 to 2/3 of the population of EURASIA.
Wars raged throughout Eurasia; Mongol armies alone slaughtered between 5 and 10 million people. This depopulation did not begin with the 1340s banking crash, although it accelerated after that for nearly a century. The policies of Venetian-allied finance were already reversing human population growth for 40-60 years before their speculative cancer completely exhausted what it monopolized, bringing on the 1340s rolling crash of all major banks which had not collapsed earlier.
To me the above sounds very similar to the imperialistic wars being waged by NATO and the U.S. which are creating chaos, disease and destruction in there wake and to what end? Also, in Africa the Aids agenda and famine have ravaged the continent and NATO and U.S. forces are now infiltrating.
The Crusades raged from 1000-1300 and we are now ready to engage in another WWIII.
Crusades and Mongols
The so-called Christian Crusades (the first in 1099, the seventh and last major one in 1291) had had only one strategic effect: expanding and strengthening the maritime commercial empire of Venice to the East. Venice provided the ships to take the Crusaders to the Middle East; Venice loaned them money, and Venetian Doges often told them what cities to try to capture or sack. Through the Crusades, Venice gained effective control of the cities of Tyre, Sidon, and Acre in Lebanon and Lajazzo in Turkey, and strengthened its domination of commerce through Constantinople. These were the coastal entry-points for the ``Silk Routes'' through the Black Sea and Caspian Sea regions to China and India. During the Mongol Empires (1230-1370), these routes were virtual ``Roman Roads'' maintained by Mongol cavalry. IS THE U.S. SERVING THE SAME PURPOSE AS THE MONGOLS ONCE DID?
Thus, in the late thirteenth and fourteenth centuries, Venice provided all the coinage and currency-exchange for the largest empire in history, which was looting and destroying the populations under its rule. Venice had taken over the currency trading and coining of what remained of the Byzantine Empire, and also of the Mamluk Sultanates in North Africa. Venice, over this period, took the East off a gold standard and put it on a silver standard (it was the richer region of the world, and being more intensively looted). It took Byzantium and Europe off a 500-year old silver standard and put them on gold standards.
Finally, if the wars, poverty and famines did not kill you the black death would. Recently, academic have come out and stated that they believe the plague to be the result of ANTHRAX. This fact is the only reasonable explanation for the pattern, symptomology and virulence of the Black death. The fact that ANTHRAX attacks occurred after 911 is no coincidence. ANTHRAX is the premiere bioweapon and has been perfected over 100's of years. It has been weaponized, nanosized, siliconized and GM for greater lethality. We can only hope that it does not end up in any chemtrails. So, could we be entering a DARK AGES II AS A RESULT OF HIDDEN AGENDA OF TPTB?
