Essentially the history described in this thread shows a circle of power changing hands. Always the upper class of high society taking advantage of the common man. This documentary displays the same attitudes of behavior the British had towards the Kings subjects in America. Only a break away was established so the American upper class could take advantage of the vast resources of the land and everything in it. For themselves, just like the Crown's attitude. Except, the Crown did fight back...but, that's a whole different kind of thread!
 
Plutocracy is the first documentary to comprehensively examine early American history through the lens of class. A multi-part series by filmmaker Scott Noble, Part I focuses on the the ways in which the American people have historically been divided on the basis of race, ethnicity, sex and skill level.
 
Plutocracy: Divide et Impera (Divide and Rule) includes sections on Mother Jones, the American Constitution; the Civil War draft riots; Reconstruction; Industrialization; the evolution of the police; the robber barons; early American labor unions; and major mid-to-late 19th Century labor events including the uprising of 1877, the Haymarket Affair, the Homestead strike and the New Orleans General Strike. The introduction examines the West Virginian coal wars of the early 20th Century, culminating in the Battle of Blair Mountain.

This documentary depicts a shift in the American mind regarding morality. Before the Civil War most colleges and educational systems were based on a system of religious morality built on a Puritan foundation. After the Civil War corporate systems began to take over the educational curriculum. This left the country disillusioned in it's search for a greater understanding of God. The profit systems turned towards a scientific method to define a new 'god'. The Teutonic systems of psychology began to be applied usurping the older philosophical moral attitude towards education. Corporate mentally and rights of person began its ascendancy over the human being....

A history of the cartels that have been working behind the scenes for centuries. I recommend you do your research on it. Once you start doing that you'll find more details in the cunning behavior of the so called divine righters in action. 
 
It's a downloadable PDF file and the link is good....

Interesting documentary because it depicts a shift in the American mind regarding morality. Before the Civil War most colleges and educational systems were based on a system of religious morality built on a Puritan foundation. After the Civil War corporate systems began to take over the educational curriculum. This left the country disillusioned in it's search for a greater understanding of God.

They just took over what was already there through the major power bases of the day. The old saying 'All roads lead to Rome' centralizes everything. it has for millennia. Even further back with the pyramids. Divine and everlasting control of everything on Earth. Men have created this and gave it power through a belief that god(s) told them it was ok to rule the earth. Politics, religion, race, whatever. Who gives a shit when you control all their resources.

Then who are the chosen ones?

 

The race handed down by God through Adam?

 

Which race is that?

 

Which religion is that?

....and who were those magnificent property holders who financed everything?
 
 
 

 

 

They're not the only ones. The monarchy has always had a powerful say in what happens in world policy.

Investigating into today’s power structure in the UK and the role played by the British monarchy, this eye-opening documentary reveals the grossly disproportionate and undemocratic wealth and power of Britain’s Royal Family.
 
The programmer educates the viewers about the sheer wealth of Britain’s unelected monarchy and trails through the various assets and sources of income to which a random family, born into a historic mesh of multiracial kings and queens, unfairly believe they are entitled.
 
The UK with its dark and scattered history of political struggles has become the playground of monarchic power and influence. The documentary exposes all the main instruments of wealth of the British monarchy and provides clear commentary as to why Britain may be the most contradictory democracy in the world.

Sorting out the logic and searching for order and revenue. This brings us to the idea of sacred property rights. The colonies sure did have a lot to say on that subject. But, we'll get to that...

First of all, the British parliament passes a proclamation in 1763 declaring a halt on all migration west of the Appalachian Mountains. Thus, killing any chance for squatters or groups of people to go in and take over land from the Indians, or anywhere else, without Crown or parliamentary approval. There's a nifty little clause in there that seems to indicate no one else may deal with the indigenous tribes but for a Crown appointed official. This implies 'ownership' by the Crown even before anyone else has a chance to gain control. The Crown issues trade licenses and warrants to set a tone indicating that the west shall not be a refuge for scoundrels.

Then, a year later, the sugar and currency acts became policy. Sugar, molasses, run, textiles, etc. all had their taxes lowered across the board. Plus, only British ships could be used for transportation. Parliament wanted to cut the smugglers and American shipping out of the picture. The currency act really began a flow of cash for Britain in that it required all funds be shipped to England. On top of all that, these acts also empowered the British Navy to confiscate any and all shipping interests that broke these new policies. If any colonist wanted their goods back they had to travel to Nova Scotia for a tribunal to be heard. How many of those colonists could afford such a journey after having been 'legally raped' of all resources to defend their 'rights'? The authority for these deeds was already in affect with those 'writs of assistance' already mentioned earlier. These new acts gave more teeth to the burgeoning concepts being developed for control and of ultimate corruption....

Who is still hiding in the background behind these machinations of policy?

:ph34r:

 

 

 

The currency acts were probably the biggest reason for the revolution. This was mainly what it was all about. Americans were sick of central banking out of London and wanted to start their own separate economy base. Leaving the Brits out in the dust. That kind of thing can't be allowed when you rule the world. Especially when you own the transportation lanes across the oceans. It always comes down to that: goods and their transport. This was the time when the maritime structure we see today came into its power.
