[I 'stumbled' across this on television last night, and I see on this documentary talk of intentionally created boom and bust cycles so that banks can consolidate power, money being printed like crazy, the possibility of coming global government, chip implantation, etc.

Then I watch the movie from beginning to end and hear at the beginning clips where Bill Clinton says that he didn't have sexual relations with that woman, then admits that he did, Obama saying that Iran poses no threat, then later says that Iran poses a serious threat, McCain apparently saying two things on gay marriage and Giuliani apparently being caught in a flip-flop. I keep watching. And... Wow.

I see that this is on LINK TV.... I am like what?! I would expect to see this on a Christian movie on GTV or TBN... not a documentary on Link TV.

There is alot that I don't agree with on this documentary, but it really makes you wonder when you hear this coming from them.]

National ID card... chip implantation so that if you present too much trouble, the chip with all financial information on you is turned off... No buying or selling then?

This coming from Link TV is troubling on so many levels.

Watch the documentary end to end. Maybe I am wrong but didn’t they bring up the National ID card, chip implantation, the possibility of all financial info being on the chip so that if it is turned off there would be no buying or selling then?

I don’t think that capitalism is the problem, either. I think that a convergence of socialism and capitalism would be the problem.

The convergence of socialism and capitalism is called Fascism. It's here.

When the means of production are in private hands, but the government exerts full control over what businesses can and cannot do -- and what they are required to do -- then you have Fascism. It's a far-left Collectivist system and we've got it right here in River City.

It is deeply ironic that the OWS types think that JP Morgan-type plutocrats are sitting around smoking big cigars, figuring out how the banks can gain control of the world. In reality, it's people like Obama and Soros who are doing the plotting, and the OWS types are their unwitting foot soldiers.

Regarding all the conspiracy theories which state that rich people are conspiring - purposely - to keep people poor.

The more people there are who are poor, less money rich people can make.

Super simple example:

a population of 1,000

Count Net Worth Situation...
5 $10,000,000 Own businesses
995 $50 Work Jobs, Earn $100 per week

Total annual earnings of the 995 "poor" people is $5,174,000.

That, therefore is the limit of how much these people can purchase from the businesses owned by the 5 "rich" people.

Now if we double the earnings of the 995 "poor" people, the businesses owned by the "rich" people have an upper sales limit of $10,348,000.

If you're operating a business, the richer the population is, the more money you can make. And the opposite applies: the poorer the population is, the less opportunity there is to make money.

Economics is the opposite of a zero-sum game where there are winners and losers; the more winners there are, the more others can win, and the more losers there are, the less opportunity for others to win.

While there are concerted efforts by the rich and powerful interests to do things, unfortunately, the harm is done by them because they are idiots who think themselves geniuses. They reject God and the Bible, which they should be using themselves as their moral foundation, and promoting it's use for the same purpose. Instead of being worried about population control, they would realize that they do not need to worry about it, and if they would stop meddling behind the scenes in the affairs of nations the world would be better off. Simple preaching of the Gospel is all that is needed by society's leaders.

Preaching is all well and good, but there needs to be more of a commitment to the Truth. Understanding and following the First Amendment pronouncements on religion are paramount to the stability, growth and preservation of a healthy society.
