Who was really behind the U.S. Government shutdown? This unceremonious event caused the U.S. economy to lose over 24 billion dollars during the so-called sixteen (16) day government shutdown. Will someone please tell me what sense does this make when here is a nation already strapped for cash and has become one of the leading debtor nations in the world; unless those in control had some covert manipulative scam in the inner workings, which has gone undetected by the masses and has yet to readily reveal itself relative to the unseen agenda. I suspect the same culprits who were behind the government shutdown, are the same ones behind inducing all past social phenomenon and will continuing having their hands in determining the future direction of humanity.

The Confederates in the U.S. Congress are bent on destroying America's first black president by any means necessary, even if it means, holding the American people hostage and if these good ole boys totally had their way, it would be easy to imagining them summoning federal and state troops and seizing the White House (imprisoning the sitting president and his cabinet) and declaring Texas, Georgia, Kentucky, South Carolina, Mississippi, Alabama and may be even Ohio as the 'New U.S. Capitol'.  This is the type of vitriol and mean-spirited hatred that is running through the veins of some of these modern confederates who dresses up in dark business suits and neck ties (and is called senators and congresspersons). 

Yet, I do think when the government fails the people, as in the government shutdown case and did not act responsible towards the political and social interest of the American people then there should be a provision in the U.S. Constitution that gives the people the legal right to suffer no unwarranted tyrannical and oppressive actions by lawmakers who were intentionally being derelict in their duties to defend and protect the United States Constitution from foreign and domestic enemies (the actions of the U.S. Congress posed a clear and imminent danger to the overall stability of the people and the U.S. Government). I am not a legal or constitutional law expert, but perhaps some would argue that this type of language is already covered in the U.S. Constitution. The government shutdown should have been viewed as a breech and compromise of U.S. National Security, but these elected low-level operatives were allowed to just walk away from this economic disruption and the elected government officials led sabotage only became a sign of business as usual. Many of them continued to receiving their government salaries (taxpayer’s money) during the shutdown. I am all for the right to dissent and I believe that dissension brings about balance to governmental power and authority. Ted Cruz and Rand Paul and others, their dissention were racially motivated coupled by an attack on the poor and simanteously ensuring that the wealthy continues as the beneficiaries of our misery. This was nothing but a shrewd game of chess that has been rigged like some Las Vegas poker game and the winners have already been predetermined (the cheating is so sophisticated and high tech that it cannot be detect by the naked eye).  

Now, the conventional response to this type of derelict in political duty would be that our focus should be on organizing grassroots voter's mobilization strategies and devising tactics and establishing a real political movement in order to effectively bring about change. I am intentionally hinting at Third Party Politics which has always been stifled by the power of the two corporate political parties. What political strategies after this debacle do we have to alter the upcoming midterm elections and change the faces of the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate? However, the two corporate parties wield so much power and influence in which I lost optimism in the voting process along time ago. I will continue to echo this, our vote don't mean a damn thing, it is just an exercise design to keep the masses pacified and believing that we have the influence to determining how we desire to see our democracy shaped by engaging in the electoral process (what an ideological sham) .

The true wealth holders of the United States and the globe, they do not cast ballots, but it is they who determine the outcomes of all influential elections and all big elections are won and lost in their financial and political interest. Voting has never been about the empowerment of the masses, it is only a symbolic illusion to give the impression to the U.S citizens of being a participatory democracy and government led by the people. I was taught in my eight grade civics course that this was what made our democracy unique, which set us apart from other forms of government. But it was because of my personal brainwashing and indoctrination (public education) that early on naively entrapped my thinking (it was design to make all of us robotic), it was drilled into me that Communism and Socialism as forms of government did not allow the people to openly disagree with the State (no doubt U.S. propaganda at its best—destroy young fashionable and impressionable minds from having the ability to ever become critical thinkers).

They trained us to believe that we so-called enjoyed a high level of freedoms and individual rights under our American system of democracy (capitalism has away of creating illusions and it confuses fact from fiction)) and it has always been easier for us to point out the oppression and atrocities that have taking place on distance lands and have difficulty coming to grips with our own oppression being carried out under the banner of democracy. Yet, since 9/11 the United States has become a totalitarian form of government (and a police state) and President Obama is equal to any Despot that has entered into recent world history.

The American people are steadily losing all of their civil liberties and we have become so dumb down that we are applauding the government and do not have a clue that this new level of heighten security has very little to do with domestic terrorism or global terrorism; this is well documented in Noam Chomsky work titled, "Hegemony or Survival: America's Quest For Global Dominance". The sun is just about to set on western society and her decline is inevitable. Obama has issued in a new form of imperialism, which in reality, is a continuation of George W. Bush's Foreign Policy agenda (Bush Doctrine)—either you are with us or against us—this is the ultimatum that Islamic and Developing Nations faces today in particular, those that disagrees with the U.S. present day political course and have the courage to express some type of independence and sovereignty such as Iran, Syria, North Korea, Cuba, Yemen and a few others are immediately demonized and isolated. Obama’s era should be called ‘Drone Diplomacy’ he is responsible for high level international assassinations, as well as using drones to reap havoc in the Middle East, Central Asia, and Africa, which has led to the killings of innocent people around the world.

But we have an even greater problem, which is some of our state governments and elected federal government officials have been hijacked by far rightwing Tea Party conservatives who are putting forth a reactionary political agenda.  Senator Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) and his rightwing Tea Party Constituents are only convenient patsies put in place by the Hidden Hand to further carryout the agenda of the Rockefellers and the Rothchilds disguised in the name of being so-called good American patriots who are leading the charge for liberty and a decentralized Federal Government. The poor is not the enemy to the stability of the United States of America, but Paul knows the driving force of America’s economic instability are the international bankers (if he didn't know he could have just asked his father former Texas Congressman Ron Paul surely daddy Paul understands the Triangle of Deception), but these type pawns are about political self-interest and they are paid informants to keep the charade going. Gary Allen and Larry Abraham in their book titled, "None Dare Call it Conspiracy" the authors maintained that the Power Elite systematically apply pressure from the bottom and pressure from the top (interpreted to mean they control the militant radical thought as well as the conservative thought and everything else in-between).

Yet, Senator Paul's home state of Kentucky is one of the poorest states in the union (plagued with high unemployment and is simanteously a haven for Big Corporate Shelters and is an anti-workers union state) when it comes to per capita income. Why would the U.S. Congress, John Boehner and the Republican Party and President Barack Obama and the Democrats desire to see the 'havenots' even more destitute? The Wall Street Bankers never loses they often profit more during times of fear and panic—they have the power to summons the president and the Speaker of the House (often it is their lobbying money that has financed U.S. Congressional leaders and these puppets are mandated to hear and obey). The decisions they are mandated to make, are not about the feelings and emotions or interest of neither the voting electorate nor their loyal constituents—American politics is about money and the positioning of power. The two-party system functions from the same premise, which is to do nothing to interfere or impede the interest of the wealth holders; therefore the laws and rules are written to ensure wealth will continue to flow in their coffers uninterrupted. Perhaps many of you might even believe that the GOP and the Democratic Party are politically different and fail to understand that both parties only serve the interest of Fortune 500 companies and the Super Elite.

This is moving us closer to the final frontier in preparation for another Great Depression. How prepared are we to having to deal with food being rationed out, no running water and/or electricity, as well as the government declaring Martial Law? The government is broke and strap for cash (they must find ways to jettison useless human baggage and the poor has become expendable). The federal government doesn’t have the financial reserves it had just 50 years ago but the dismantling process started many years ago, I advise my readers to go back and read Alvin Tofflers book titled, “Creating a New Civilization: The Politics of the Third Wave”; corporate down sizing and corporate outsourcing were calculated business decisions in which the social scientist (at least the wise amongst them) knew early on that this trend would have a tremendous negative affect on the economic, political and social outcome on the future of the United States to remain a world economic superpower. This along with massive debt has rendered at least five unborn generations who will be plague with digging themselves out of a hold that was created for them by those who practice greed as a trade and was not concern with America’s future.  

This ultimately isn’t about who has the best fiscal plans (neither party has a real solution to solving the 17 trillion dollar national deficit—its greed that has brought the global economy to its knees that 1% who controls 99% of the world’s wealth is the most dangerous sector to the freedoms of all humanity. It is China that is keeping our government afloat in which we will never be able to fully pay the debt back and a total economic collapse of the United States economy is on the immediate horizon and is inevitable and at the same time they are steadily sensitizing the poor even more with their own poverty. They actually used the 9/11 hoax to steal massive national and international monetary reserves (huge amounts of gold and silver were never recovered) that were housed in underground vaults beneath the World Trade Center—Larry Silverstein and the Secret Cabal got off like fat rats in a cheese factory—Federal Reserve Bank of New York was a key player in this deception.  

The American people life styles since 2008 have depreciated. Some have this faint idea that these crisis are going to blow over and we are going to return to pre 2008 living standards, but many of us have not taking notice that we have economically digressed to almost substandard living conditions that will soon equal to what we (the working poor and the middle class) see in developing nations (or what Capitalist and bloodsuckers of the poor refer to as 'Third World' nations). We have allowed the Elitist and the Hidden Hand to move towards stripping us bone raw of the wither all to exist as human beings (life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness). They are now consistently passing on the debt to the poor by blaming the 'havenots' for America's economic woes and using our elected officials in congress as front men to dupe us into believing that President Obama and the Democratic Party are responsible for the escalating national deficit. Just ask yourself, who do we owe this astronomical debt?

This article was not written as an apologist and in defense of President Obama or to exonerate this operative because he too works in the interest of the Hidden Hand and is very much down with the duping. Most people are not familiar with the Bank For International Settlements (the mother of all Central Banks) located in Basel, Switzerland, which dictates how the global Central Banking systems functions and determine the value of the world currency, but most of all dictates the inflation index—they allow the U.S. Federal Reserve and the Bank of England to infuse the printing of worthless currency as a short term monetary solution to propping up their economies in which the Federal Reserve Chairman knows that this is not even a temporary fix, but it is this variables that will also fuel future wars and the stealing of defenseless nations resources (this is the real objective behind those that manipulates the global flow of money). The printing of worthless currency should be outlawed, it is this phenomenon that also feeds the necessity for the Military Industrial Complex. For example, Syria, Mali, Iraq, Egypt and Afghanistan are prime examples of this agenda—the entire African continent is in trouble in particular, as resources becomes more scarce weaker nations will become prime targets for exploitation by Eastern Powers and Western European Powers.

The European Common Market and the power of the Euro have lost value in Europe and around the world because similar to the United States Dollar it is driven not solely by global markets and/or how well commodities are performing, but wars/debt/famines are the primary social variables that impacts on the economic and financial projections of how the Euro performs. European nations in recent history have not created sustainable domestic and international trade surpluses in which could prohibited what we saw taking place the last few years in Greece—a European nation on the brink of economic collapse—this could have had a serious domino affect throughout the entire European region. This also includes European nations such as Italy, Spain, Portugal and Ireland.  

Alan Greenspan, the former Chairman of the Federal Reserve authored a monumental book titled, "Alan Greenspan: The Age of Turbulence" who was appointed to the Governors of the Federal Reserve by President Ronald Reagan in 1987 and served until 2006. Mr. Greenspan was one of the most brilliant 'Money Changers' of the 20th century; yet I was taking aback after spending a few weeks reading a 531 page book written by this global economist guru in which he did not dedicate one paragraph to explaining how the Central Banking system function. I read the book because I was in search of some inside information relative to international banking and the Federal Reserve System. How much money is enough money?

Stay Awake Until We Meet Again,
Fahim A. Knight-El

Thursday, October 10, 2013



By Fahim A. Knight-El

Let me start this article off by sharing this principle: Whatever Path that we are on and, perhaps unknowing to the majority of humanity this march had already been preordained before we embarked upon our earthly trek and even started before our birth conception); and it's not accidental or incidental nor even coincidental of where we are in space and time. We are supposed to be on our journey, whatever that may be and wherever it has taken us up until that point in our lives and the beauty in it all, it does not necessarily means this is where the journey begins or ends. But in the essence, of space and time relative to the universal order of things various Paths are shown and given to us as principles of spiritual preparation. These lessons will eventually give us meaning to this thing called life and as we travel our personal journey, the road will eventually continuously reward us with enlightenment (in particular the Prepared Ones and those who are opened to receive). I am a living witness that it will always provide us with some answers along the way—experienced through trial and error. However, as I just stated wherever, we are in mind, body and spirit, it will always provide us with the acknowledgement of the Now. It is only our experiences good, bad and/or indifferent, which gives life meaning and purpose in particular, those experiences that we have already had, and those that we will eventually have in the future and beyond, that will move us along in our spiritual journey; and this is the only true reality and it was this that brought me some years ago to the crossroads with organized religion.

This reality, will at time cause us to debunk some things in order to clear a way for another necessary Path, but each step along the way will either validate the truths that we have previously found and embraced, or require us to rethink those positions. I think those of us who professed to be awake and conscious, see all forms of religion as being reactionary; however, this at times can deny us the opportunity and privilege of being the beneficiary to walking into a sanctuary where truth and enlightenment may be taking place. I think Western Christianity has this negative stigma and it becomes difficult to see beyond the church historically serving as the chief vessel of white supremacy, oppression and global tyranny. Yet, I do think it is shallow not to investigate and determine for ourselves, if there is some real philosophical, theological and spiritual validity being offered by whomever regardless of the title and label of the institution.

The social and psychological make up of the so-called African American (American black man and woman) and his present day behavior and dysfunctional conduct cannot be downplayed in relation to being tied directly to his 310 years of brutality and forced servitude in which they were victims of one of the most inhumane systems ever recorded in human history, which was Chattel Slavery (citing facts not crying victimization or seeking a pity party).

The Transatlantic Slave Trade and the Middle Passage in relations to the inhumanness carried out on the slave plantation cannot be overlooked (I have documentation and proof of scholars who have provided us with empirical studies validating that the slavery experience was horrid and traumatic—the psychological effect is on-going). Our forcible travel to the Americas, as slaves, which historically has tied our roots to all the major and minor slave ports of South America, North America and the Caribbean region of this western hemisphere. We have to be open to receiving the knowledge of self because we were systematically made blind, deaf and dumb by a wise perpetrator of evil and not knowing this, places all of us at a disadvantage. There are still many so-called African Americans evoking the slave master's God and often fail to understand that our belonging to Christianity was forced upon us on the slave plantation; surely many of our African ancestors were not Christians. I cannot accept his religion nor his God; I can only accept and receive the God of the Oppressed and he definitely would not be in the form of no blue-eyed white God falsely depicted as Jesus.

I disagreed with Elijah Muhammad's son, Imam Warth Deen Mohammed on many theological and philosophical issues who in 1975 started revamping the Nation of Islam after the death of its patriarch (note: Those who are followers of Minister Louis Farrakhan do not teach or believe that the Honorable Elijah Muhammad is dead) and in essence betraying his father’s teachings and mission. But Imam Mohammed started a campaign may be in the early 1980s called the Committee to Remove All Images of Divine (CRAID) and I have always felt that this was a good concept because the Eurocentric mind had for centuries perpetuated the inferior races being associated with dark skinned people and the so-called superior races being associated with white skinned people in which they portrayed themselves with the racial likeness of God in particular embodied in a Caucasian image of Jesus. 

Imam Mohammed’s CRAID concept was a challenge to how the Divine was depicted in western culture in which he believed these false images of the Divine have had a negative and devastating effect on human relations. Imam Mohammed went on a public crusade to remove all images of the Divine, but I do not think his efforts ever gained any serious steam (other than Imam Mohammed’s book titled, “An African American Genesis” and his CRAID movement there was not to much else that I agreed with the Imam on and I definitely did not accept his position on Sunni Islam). I also do not accept the white man's God or his religion of Christianity—it has always been the missionaries’ mission to rob the indigenous people of their minds and lay the theoretical framework for the imperialist and the colonialist to steal original people's lands and resources throughout the planet—this agenda is even being continued under the so-called African American President Barack Obama.

There is a historical and cultural collective conscious that bonds people of African descent and I advise all my readers to reference Dr. Joy DeGruy-Leary’s book titled, “Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome: America's Legacy of Enduring Injury and Healing”. Our Black youths need to know: who, how, what, where, when and why they entered; moreover, and we cannot have this type discussion in mid-sentence and not give them the historical reason of why we are in this present day condition, as opposed to given them the abbreviated version and the watered down truth, why not give them the unadulterated truth with no chaser. The system of white supremacy cannot exist without blame and our present day political, economic and social status must be viewed in that context and the indictment of a criminal system that made us "Negroes" and vagabonds of the earth is justifiable. So I am challenging all of my readers to look deeper into black human personality and not just be surface thinkers and compassionate intellectuals.

Why are we in this present day predicament? And to understand this will give us an even greater understanding of the root causes of why present day black families have broken down, black men walking away from their families (wives and children), and our lack of love for one another, it now constitute a pervasiveness of violence seen among young black males between the ages 18-24. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) has reported that homicide has become the number one killer of young black males in this particular age group—the lack of opportunities, high unemployment, drug and alcohol addictions, poor housing, underfunded school districts and often the selling of illicit drugs are seen as the only way out of the black ghettos of America. These conditions have become systemic and it plays into the question of genocide and we must question, who is really behind this state of emergency? The vicious cycles of poverty and lack of real opportunity has created a permanent black underclass, which also includes poor whites and Latinos within this equation in the United States of America. But race and class gives other oppressed and marginalized people the false perception that somehow their racial status allows them to view themselves and their oppression from the realm of white privilege and it is this that separates them from other oppressed people in the United States of America (this is perhaps the biggest trick that keeps people divided in the U.S.). 

So-called Black leadership has failed to render any tangible solutions to these crisis facing black people other than preaching our dependency on the federal government—they have failed to adhere to the handwriting on the wall, which is, our government is bankrupt and we may see the end to social programs in the United States within the next decade. The so-called shutdown of the U.S. Government and the debt ceiling needing to be raised in order to keep the U.S. economy from collapsing and having global implications are clear signs that something terribly wrong has gone on inside of our government, it more importantly points to the fact that someone has the power to induce these type symptoms in order to profit from human misery. Senator Rand Paul and his Tea Party cadre will never attack the real enemies of American freedoms because to do this would represent the demise of his and their careers as a politician (no liberty is going to take place until the power brokers are dealt with). 

Therefore, it is easy to hide behind fiscal conservatism and attack the poor and scapegoat America’s economic woes to the least of these (poor people has no power to fight back). Yet, those who control the smoking mirrors will continue to masquerade under the guise of the Hidden Hand and Congressman Paul will do everything in his power to shield them from being exposed. I am of the opinion, that God himself would directly has to intervene in the affairs of men and women in order to deal with these diabolic evil forces that are governing and leading humanity. But here is the reality, since 9/11 and 2008 economic depression or conveniently referred to as an economic meltdown, it forced some of us to wake up, but most people will continue to be only good 'sheepel' and voluntarily led to the slaughter. The entire money system has been set-up to benefit the international bankers; they intentionally sold us a false bill of goods. Minister Malcolm X said in the early 1960s that the American dream was more like an American nightmare. There is no real ownership in America this is an illusion and they systematically carryout this illusion by selling us money (when you buy by credit they are actually selling you money) in which money of itself has no value, but it is given as an accepted form of medium of exchange.

The Congress would rather see a total collapse of the U.S. Government and its brought to its knees before working to establish a long term budget that serve and meet the needs of the American people (this attitude is beyond political opposition, but its rooted in the deepest sentiments of American style racism and they have determined to take no orders or directives from a America’s so-called black president). The Fall of America is at hand and it is inevitable because the pendulum has swung in the wrong direction for America and its 6,000 year rulership is coming to an abrupt end. Black Leadership in 2013 has to be innovative and creative in order for us to make the transition from 20th century ideas because 9/11 and the year of 2001 marked the beginning and demise of this world's order and it has forced us to move towards finding our place in the 21st Century concept of globalism. And this will be the indicator to determining, if we meet the challenges of survival and/or do we fizzle away as an obsolete people who has out served their usefulness and purpose.

The leadership and the United States Government should be focusing on how do we move our nation more towards this competitive and fast moving global economy. We were thirty years ago once the number one creditor nation in the world and now have become the number one debtor nation of the world. Something has gone terribly wrong with the course and plight of the political, economic and social direction of the United States of America. How willing are the people to truly move beyond a dumbfound Tea Party era that has taking our nation on a collision course and in collusion with a conservative and reactionary U.S. Congress who are behind shaping and molding public policy? 

The recent events (government shutdown) threaten the economic stability of the entire U.S. Government. There already exist a wealth disparity in which 95% of the world's wealth is in the hands of 1% Elitist population and it's this basic inequality that keeps poor, middle class and working class people fighting for economic crumbs (there must be a redistribution of the world's wealth and resources with the masses of the people). They have literally created two classes of people the "haves and the Have nots' Our immediate focus should be on how do we move, perhaps one of the most industrialized and technological nation’s in the world from being number 35th in science and 29th in math forward in the 21st Century. We are far behind China, Korea, India, Japan, etc., in the sciences and this is why we are lagging in technological advancement.

Most of our so-called leaders are cloned puppets who are always looking to appear politically correct and are often bought and paid for by corporate entities—this is where their interest lie. The best example would be Reverend Al Sharpton typifies and exemplifies the term opportunistic (here is his latest venture a new book titled, “The Rejected Stone: Al Sharpton and the Path to American Leadership“); he is more concern about window dressing and what he and his organization National Action Network can get from corporate sponsorship, as opposed to championing real civil right causes to benefit the black poor and oppressed—these ‘Negroes are playing the money chase game and justice and freedom is a second distances to lining their personal pockets with corporate grants and other financial incentives. These type 'Negro' leaders are paid millions of dollars to keep the black masses under control and depended upon white America for food, clothing and shelter.

What would Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. think of today’s black leadership who fifty years ago in 1963, perhaps delivered one of the most symbolic and iconic speeches ever to be spoken in American history (the ‘ I Have a Dream’ speech). The Fifty Year Commemoration Celebration of the March on Washington held on or about August 28 2013, was not even a shadow of the sacrifices that was associated with the King led civil rights movement, it has become a movement of nostalgic dreamers and have lost King’s ideas about transformation and activism—since King’s assassination the civil rights movement is at a point what I call political stagnation. Our political, economic and social conditions are worst off today than they were fifty years ago because they lured us to sleep with integration and sold us on the fight for accommodation and so-called inclusion as being the ultimate solution to social progress. 

However, Jim Crow laws, racism and discrimination forced African Americans to create a separate economy and to build independent enterprises (this should have led us by now to reassess and reevaluate the question of separation versus integration). I think history would prove that blacks were better off under segregation because it forced us to do for-self and to build black institutions. The Honorable Elijah Muhammad called integration a hypocritical trick indeed this man was a visionary in which he stated, “my teachings can be summed up in six words, ‘accept your own and be yourself’. King put it all on the line for the quest of justice and freedom and had reached a zone that only has been reserved for the prophets, spiritual teachers, gurus, sages, etc., where their lives were meant to have meaning beyond the ordinary, but would be called to shape and serve humanity in extraordinary ways. Many of us in two life times will never reach this ultimate spiritual place. King got there and he was able to meet Buddha, Confucius, Zoroaster, Jesus, Muhammad, etc. 

The Honorable Elijah Muhammad stated there were three things that the Caucasian did not teach us Black people: 1). The science of mating. 2). The science of warfare and 3). The science of business. They (the Hidden Hand and/or Elitist) have mastered the science of symbolism and is moving around quite effectively in systems of codes and has allowed them to built an internal and external networking system that further allows them to dictate high/low finance which constitutes their present day past global success; how business will play out and who are going to be the players, is beyond are allowable capabilities as pawns in their system. Their networking system is impenetrable because of class and race (we will never get an invitation into his Dynastic world because of the lack of generational wealth) and although, his present world looks to be striving and moving forward, but in reality it has reached its zenith and it is in a decline and downward spiral (his 6,000 year rule is coming to an end).

The United States Dollar is worthless and weak and the evidence of its vulnerability was seen in 2008, when the United States almost entered into a second Great Depression relative to the banking system and the financial markets experiencing a drastic meltdown. The Honorable Elijah Muhammad said in "Fall of America" that when we see the automobile and the steel industries collapse that will be the indication his total economic decline was nearing (the pendulum has swung opposite and contrary to his favor). So me believing in this reality, it's difficult for me to advise anyone to follow after any of their economic models and using any portion of his success as a model would be a terrible mistake. The Messenger taught us for 44 years to get some of this good earth that we can call our own (land is the basis of wealth and sovereignty) and he also said that we should have money, good homes and friendships in all walks of life (but his most profound principle was get up and do something for ourselves). 

Yet, if I was a commodity tradesman or adviser, I would advise my people to secure and invest in gold markets (and silver) and even when the dollar totally falls, gold will still have value (this is why the wise amongst us are buying up the gold). Also, the concept of bartering should be explored where no currency is exchanged for goods and services, but skills, intellectual property and tangible goods are exchanged and interchanged as non-monetary forms of commodities. The Jews in Tel Aviv, Israel and in Europe, as well as the United States are heavily involved on every level of the lucrative gold market (most of these precious metals can be found right there in black Africa) and yet we have no trade arrangement with our people in Africa in which many are Muslims.
