LAST MAN OUT OF NORTH TOWER ON 9/11 TO BE ON CONFERENCE CALL. On Sunday, May 4 at 2
PM Pacific Time, William Rodriquez, the last man to escape from the North Tower seconds before it collapsed on 9/11, will be our conference call guest to describe his experiences that day. He single-handedly rescued fifteen people from the World Trade Center. He was the only person at the site with a master key to the North Tower stairwells and bravely led firefighters up the stairwell, unlocking doors as they ascended. At great risk to his life, he re-entered the Towers three times after the North Tower impact and made it possible to evacuate hundreds who, otherwise, would not have survived. To participate in the conference, call (712) 432-3973. The access code is 157975. To eliminate background noise, phones will be muted, but you can ask questions by email. I will monitor incoming emails and will relay questions in the order received. Send them to gedward.griffin@verizon.net,

FROM OUR READERS


CAPTIVATED BY CAPITALISM VS. COLLECTIVISM 
I was captivated by the email [posted below] from the new subscriber who was having trouble with the concepts of collectivism and capitalism. The email was intense, and I got so caught up in responses from each of you- that it literally enthralled me. It was deep. It was real and it was from someone who expressed real questions from the the naievity of someone unfamiliar with Freedom Force. I was so intrigued by the writing from both of you that I will be forced to read it at least 3 or 4 times again. In the mean time, keep up your stamina and your responses as well. I think that the depth of information will serve to quell questions that many have in mind.

CONFUSED ABOUT CAPITALISTS AND COLLECTIVISTS
This week we received an email from a new subscriber who was having trouble with the concepts of collectivism and capitalism. This is a common problem for those who are newly introduced to these concepts, so we are reprinting the email and my reply below:

SUBSCRIBER: I just watched an interview with Mr. Griffin about the federal reserve and immediately signed up for the newsletter. As I was browsing, I began to realize that some of the principles held by the organization seemed contradictory to the sentiment expressed in the interview. Specifically about collectivism. Is there any place, any resource, the water supply, anything that belongs to all of us?

REPLY: It depends on the definition of belong. In one sense, nothing ever belongs to anyone. In another, everything belongs to those who have the physical or military strength to claim it. In yet another sense, things (including natural resources) belong to those who develop them and make them accessible to others. Each society has its own view of this. In a society of individualism, there is a right of ownership for those who offer added value to the natural resources. In other words, copper in the ground is useless until it can be mined and refined. If people were not allowed to own the land and the raw resources, there would be no incentive to do the mining or refining, and it would stay in the ground forever.

SUBSCRIBER: What gives the people who own huge amounts of the pie the right to keep it forever and pass it on to their children?

REPLY: What gives people who own small amounts of the pie the right to take it from those with large amounts? Theft is not justified by the envy of those who steal.

SUBSCRIBER: How is that any different than Kings or Dictators?

REPLY: Stealing from the rich is no different from stealing from the poor and no different from stealing by kings and dictators.

SUBSCRIBER: Some people simply don't have the tools to run in the economic rat race.

REPLY: Correct. We should help them if we can but that does not justify coercing others to be generous if they donít want to be. If we grant that principle, then we have no complaint when others coerce us to do things that we do not care to do. Coercion in the name of good causes is the foundation of modern tyranny.

SUBSCRIBER: Capitalism is fine for capitalists.

REPLY: There are two kinds of capitalism: Competitive capitalism and monopoly capitalism. The first is good for everyone. The second is good for only the monopolists. Incidentally, monopoly capitalism is the foundation of collectivism. All monopoly capitalists forge partnerships with government as the way in which they maintain their monopolies. They love socialism, communism, neo-conservatism, and all other variants of collectivism, as you no doubt have observed from present-day elitists, all of whom are collectivists.

SUBSCRIBER: But look what capitalists are doing in the world...buying up mineral rights and water rights and stomping on any nation that dares to nationalize their resources so they can take care of their citizens.

REPLY: These are not competitive capitalists. They are monopoly capitalists who are partners with politicians and who use government to enforce their monopolies. They hate competition. None of them seek free-enterprise competition. They are the ruling collectivists partnered with government to enforce their monopolies.

SUBSCRIBER: Social agreements do not necessarily have to be corrupt.

REPLY: Agreed. But eventually they always do become corrupt when they allow coercion for redistribution of wealth. In other words, collectivism always corrupts.

SUBSCRIBER: How about roads...should every road become a toll road?

REPLY: Not necessarily. This question tells me that you have not read my essay entitled The Chasm in which I addressed this issue in a footnote at the bottom of page 16. You will find The Chasm at the bottom of the Issues section of the Freedom Force site. Here is the link: http://www.freedom-force.org/freedom.cfm?fuseaction=issues. Thank you for your interest.

HOW TO VIEW "THE SHOCK DOCTRINE" BY NAOMI KLEIN
Several readers have urged us to recommend a video on YouTube entitled The Shock Doctrine, narrated by Naomi Klien. I regret that I cannot endorse it because of the following reasons. Naomi dramatically and accurately describes how personal and social shock is used to condition people to accept radical change, but there are hidden messages that make this a propaganda piece for collectivism. Naomi tries to convince her audience that the Neocon version of privatization is capitalism when, in reality, it is nothing but corporate collectivism, totally dependant on government intervention and favoritism. Free markets ARE desirable but that is not what the Bush Administration pursues. This video is the kind of propaganda that can lead people to embrace Socialist and Communist versions of collectivism.

ARE WE HEADED FOR HYPERINFLATION OR HYPERDEPLATION?
Hi Mr. Griffin,
I have seen many videos of you and want to know if you think there is going to be hyperinflation or hyperdeflation coming to the US? I am so confused right now. On one hand, I hear about hyperinflation coming like in Germany but then some analysts predict that hyperdeflation is coming instead. This reasoning is below:

Hi Albert,  I am in the deflation school. The trillions of dollars in derivatives and bad MBSs bets that will implode in the next few years will be beyond any increases to the money supply or fiscal stimulous. But, of course, I could be wrong.    best, Mike

What is your position regarding this? I respect you greatly and would like to hear what you think will most likely happen? Do you believe that the dollar will die because of hyperinflation or do you think instead that we will have hyperdeflation? Thanks!!

GEG'S REPLY:

I donít blame you for being confused. There are two opposing forces at work. (1) The Fed is pumping huge amounts of money into the economy, mostly going into the banks to bail them out from bad loans. This trend is inflationary. (2) Banks and corporations are writing off huge amounts in bad loans and accounts receivables previously carried as assets Ė and people are losing the equity in their homes. This is deflationary. It is a tug of war between these two forces. No one can tell for certain which will win out in the end, but I think the Fed will continue to pump unprecedented amounts of new money into the system because thatís what they exist for: to protect the the banks. After all, the Fed is a banking cartel, nothing more. So I am anticipating net inflation leading to destruction of the monetary system.

ALL CREDIT CARDS SOON WILL HAVE MICROCHIPS
Hi there.
I just saw an ad for VISA saying that they will soon put microchips in to the cards. My credit card expires this year, so I called them up and asked for a new one BEFORE the chips come out, and they said they can do that, but they only delay the expiry until March of next year. Apparently everyone who uses VISA has an expiry date some time this year or early next year, and when they get their new cards they will all be chipped. When I mentioned switching to another credit card company they said that all credit card companies are going to be doing this within the next 3 years, VISA is just the first to do it... So is there no escape? Actually I just had a thought.

The biggest problem with a chipped credit card is that it can be read from a distance - say - by a hacker as you're passing his computer with a reader, or by a business that wants to hassle you with advertising, or of course by the government. So, how about this for a solution - a company should get one of those microchipped cards and design a small case for the card (as small as possible - hopefully one that will fit in your walled) that completely blocks the chip from being read. That would be an easy and convenient way to protect privacy. The card user could just store the chipped card in the case in their wallet until they actually want to use it.

It's the sort of thing that could even be sold on Reality Zone, or Spy Chips. What do you think? I sure hope you have some good news about my idea, because obviously putting the chip in to a credit card is only a step leading towards getting rid of the card and just having the chip in our arms.

Take care
Nick La Riviere

       NEWEST ARRIVALS

ARE VACCINES SAFE?
 A 3-hour seminar that answers with a resounding NO.
This seminar was conducted by Mary Tocco, an educator on natural health with special expertise in the side effects of vaccines. Her presentation has been seen by over 100,000 people and voted by viewers across the country as #1 on this topic. She has packed 27 years of personal research into just three hours, and you will be glued to your TV screen every minute of the way. Drawing on scientific documents from government agencies and university laboratories, she identifies the toxic components of vaccines, how they are related to autism and other childhood disorders, how vaccines interfere with the development of a normal immune system, and how infectious childhood diseases had all but disappeared BEFORE vaccines were introduced as a result of improved sanitation and nutrition. Protect your children from this fraud. Get the facts before you make the vaccine decision. (More)



THE FUTURE OF FOOD:
The Disturbing Truth about Genetically Modified Foods.

This documentary is an investigation into unlabeled, genetically engineered foods that have quietly filled our grocery stores for the past decade. It gives voice to farmers who are under attack by the corporations that have created this technology. It shows the grim health implications for an unsus-pecting population and reveals how multinational corporations are seeking to control the world's food system. (More)

WASHINGTON YOU'RE FIRED!
This documentary focuses on the growing police state in America and shows how the Bill of Rights and the Constitution literally have been cancelled by recent legislation and executive orders. With the next crisis, the President will have power to confiscate all private property including homes, cars, and money; all commercial property; all means of transportation; and can round us up into work brigades. Anyone who criticizes can be imprisoned without legal defense. Presidents now have more dictatorial power than King George had when Americans fought the Revolutionary War to rid themselves of him. This program includes a plan for restoring the Constitution without armed revolution. (More)

STALIN, MAN OF STEEL. This History Channel documentary is more than just a biography of one of the worldís most notorious dictators and mass killers. It shows how, in spite of incredible crimes against his own people, Stalin was hero worshiped by them. This was possible because the masses were easily moved in time of crisis into viewing him as the embodiment of their nation, and loyalty to country became blurred with loyalty to leader. Vital lessons for today. (More)

UN-COUNTED
The New Math of American Elections
This documentary shows how the elections of 2004 and 2006 were stolen and who did it. This is not a conspiracy theory. Itís the real thing! The people who perpetrated this fraud remain in place to do the same thing in 2008 Ė and every election thereafter. This has nothing to do with Republicans vs. Democrats. It is about controlling the electoral process so that the common citizen will never be able to break the grip of those who control both major parties. This grip CAN be broken, but only if more Americans become aware that it exists. Thatís where you come in. Acquire this video and show it to your friends. (More)

STOP AMERICA'S #1 KILLER!
Vitamin C Deficiency Is the Origin of ALL Heart Disease.
Yes, sub-clinical scurvy, caused by a lack of Vitamin C, is the origin of all heart and coronary disease. Does that mean everyone can be protected simply by taking extra Vitamin C? Not quite. The first step is to eliminate those conditions that deplete Vitamin C levels in the first place. Here is the whole story told in fascinating detail. Simply stated, coronary disease is preventable and reversible without drugs. (More)

FILES ON JFK: The confession of James Files, the man who shot Kennedy.
Late Great USA
Speaking from prison, James Files tells how he was recruited by a Chicago crime family and worked with the CIA to assassinate JFK. He describes every step of the plan, names the key players, and explains their motives.

DVD. (More)

THE LATE GREAT U.S.A. The Coming Merger with Mexico and Canada. Late Great USAWhile many people are still clinging to the belief that The U.S.will never give up its sovereignty, the process already is far advanced. This is not just a super highway between Mexico and Canada, but a total political, economic, and military merger into what will be called the North American Union, identical to the creation of the EU. Here are the chilling details of a plan being implemented largely behind closed doors by global elitists to terminate the United States. (More)

DECEPTION WAS MY JOB
The Testimony of Yuri Bezmenov,
KGB Propagandist.
Deception Was My Job
Bezmenov, the son of a high-ranking Soviet officer, worked for the propaganda arm of the KGB known as the Novasti Press Agency. One of his assignments was to accompany journalists visiting the Soviet Union to make sure they did not discover the truth about Soviet life. After becoming disillusioned with the oppressive system, he escaped to the West at great risk to his life. In this interview, conducted by G. Edward Griffin, Bezmenov tells how the Soviets propagandized their own citizens; how he hoodwinked American journalists into publishing Soviet propaganda, how slave laborers are concealed from foreign visitors, and how he escaped to the West posing as an American hippie. Includes many photographs brought with him on microfilm at the time of his escape. (More)
