Trust is instrumental to the function of a society, without trust it falls apart.

In the US Department of Defense, a `trusted system or component’ is defined as `one which can break the security policy’. (1)

The New York Times reported on 19 February 2002 that the Pentagon’s new “Office of Strategic Influence” (OSI) is “developing plans to provide news items, possibly even false ones, to foreign media organizations” in an effort “to influence public sentiment and policy makers in both friendly and unfriendly countries.”(2)

The argument is that funding has dried up because the money markets don’t trust the banks.(3)

The reason the money markets have seized is that banks don’t trust each other. The reason Europe struggles to find a systemic solution to this crisis is that governments don’t trust each other. (4)

Trust in the United States as the leader of the free world and the free economy and confidence in Wall Street, has been damaged I believe forever. There will be no return to the previous position.” (5)

Trust is a prediction of reliance on an action, based on what a party knows about the other party. Trust is a statement about what is otherwise unknown.(6)

The monetary/financial crisis, that may have just begun, can create legions of poor, homeless and hungry people. In such a situation the society easily polarizes and forces the state to become more predatory and cannibalistic. For many the growth of the security state and the humiliating subservience to the Washington consensus have eroded trust in the Swedish society, the culture of spin and disinformation, often to the advantage of the foreign power also affect memes from ‘good old times’, jobs, healthcare and education pales into distractions and tax ploys equally false and corrupt as democracy-promotion and neo-liberal freedom. Economic plunder and insights in the history of banking can make the favorite ideology feel like a loose tooth in the mouth.

AB:Environment taxes not used to improve the environment

The state charges around 8 000 SEK per Swede and year in green taxes. Expenses to improve the environment and ease adaption are 500 SEK.

…a factor sixteen, and a political efficiency of 6,25%.

How did we get there? During the last century, it could be said that Sweden was shaped by relatively benign intentions as a middle road in the fight between capitalism and communism, a polar system that still dominates the political scale. But what about the spin factor in such a belief? Here are a few quotes that can make you wonder.

A. Sutton:Wall Street and the Bolshevik revolution

This activity in behalf of the Bolsheviks originated in large part from a single address: 120 Broadway, New York City. The evidence for this observation is outlined but no conclusive reason is given for the unusual concentration of activity at a single address, except to state that it appears to be the foreign counterpart of Carroll Quigley’s claim that J.P. Morgan infiltrated the domestic left. Morgan also infiltrated the international left.

The governments of the world, according to the Marburg Plan, were to be socialized while the ultimate power would remain in the hands of the international financiers “to control its councils and enforce peace [and so] provide a specific for all the political ills of mankind.

Revolution and international finance are not at all inconsistent if the result of revolution is to establish more centralized authority. International finance prefers to deal with central governments. The last thing the banking community wants is laissez-faire economy and decentralized power because these would disperse power.

But so long as the reader looks at world history in terms of an inexorable Marxian conflict between capitalism and communism, the objectives of such an alliance between international finance and international revolution remain elusive. So will the ludicrousness of promotion of the public good by plunderers.

In the 1930s foreign firms, mostly of the Morgan-Rockefeller group, built the five-year plans. They have continued to build Russia, economically and militarily.

History is written by the winners

“Dr. Dodd said she first became aware of some mysterious super-leadership right after World War II when the US Communist Party had difficulty getting instructions from Moscow on several vital matters requiring immediate attention. The American Communist hierarchy was told that any time they had an emergency of this kind they should contact any one of three designated persons at the Waldorf Towers. Dr. Dodd noted that whenever the party obtained instructions from any of these three men, Moscow always ratified them. What puzzled Dr. Dodd was the fact that not one of these three contacts was a Russian. Nor were any of them Communists. In fact, all three were extremely wealthy American capitalists! Dr. Dodd said, ‘I would certainly like to find out who is really running things.’” Her conclusion: “I think the Communist conspiracy is merely a branch of a much bigger conspiracy!”

Ideologies come and go but the trusting and deceptive human nature prevails.

På svenska: Den betrodda är den den som kan bryta förtroligheten. Inget konstigt med det, detta eftersom du helt naturligt inte lämnar ut det känsliga till någon du inte betror.

När du lägger ett förseglat brev på brevlådan, så är Posten den betrodda, för det är posten som kan bryta förtroligheten.

Å skall vi jämföra med de nya lagarna angående elektronisk kommunikation, så innebär det numer att internetoperatörerna inte längre är en betrodd part, vilket då givetvis innebär att vi inte längre har privat elektronisk kommunikation. De där samverkanspunkterna i FRA-lagen är i effekt ett förbud mot privat kommunikation.


Det har du helt rätt i.
