Today, the International Labor Organization estimates there are 12.3 million people being held against their will, as slaves, at any given time. Of these, 800,000 people are trafficked across international borders each year. 80% of these victims are women; 50% are children. Whether it is called human trafficking, bonded labor, forced labor, or sex trafficking, it is present worldwide, including within the United States and, increasingly, in your local community. An estimated 12 – 27 million people are caught in one or another form of slavery not counting debt slaves. Between 600,000 and 800,000 are trafficked internationally each year, with as many as 17,500 people trafficked into the United States. Nearly three out of every four victims are women. Half of modern-day slaves are children.
There are two ways to conquer and enslave a nation. One is by the sword. The other is by debt. A fundamental aspect of the American way of life, which has become the way of life for most of the first world and a great part of the third world, is chronic indebtedness. From governments down to the individual debt has been embraced because of the goodies we would then ‘afford.’ Hundreds of millions of people have in effect become debt slaves in that they are working to either pay taxes, notes, mortgages, credit cards, charge accounts and other debts.
In terms of government and their control over us, our parents unknowingly delivered us into bondage the moment they registered us with the government for a Birth Certificate. This process signed us over to the government as property of the state. Governments by their very nature are against freedom because they never want their citizens to be free of the government. And the elite pull governmental puppet strings everywhere and to them we the people are a mere resource to be milked and exploited in the same manner that a farmer rears livestock. Very simply, we are their slaves and they care not that our destiny is sealed.
There is much to learn about money and debt and the price we have paid not to be educated in depth about these things is astronomical. Into the Ashes covers these subjects in a profound way and we will continue to update this page with new information.
Freedom – What Freedom?
We have all been taught that we have freedom because we live in a democracy. The real truth is that we have submitted to being controlled by rules and regulations whether they are legal or just. The IRS and the federal withholding taxes are neither legal (according to the constitution) or just and have only supplied the money received to feed a monstrous governing machine.
Jim Kouri writes, “The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) will see its largest expansion since withholding taxes were first enacted during WWII to enforce the glut of new tax mandates and penalties included in the Democrats’ latest health care plan, according to Rep. Kevin Brady (R-TX). A new analysis by the Joint Economic Committee and the House Ways & Means Committee minority staff estimates up to 16,500 new IRS personnel will be needed to collect, examine and audit new tax information mandated on families and small businesses in the ‘reconciliation’ bill being taken up by the U.S. House of Representatives this weekend, according to Brady.”
“When most people think of health care reform they think of more doctors exams, not more IRS exams,” says U.S. Congressman Kevin Brady, the top House Republican on the Joint Economic Committee. “Isn’t the federal government already intruding enough into our lives? We need thousands of new doctors and nurses in America, not thousands more IRS agents.” In the United States and England and in other parts of Europe the government has been controlling, to the best of their abilities, our medical choices preferring at every corner to take our health freedoms away. Even our children’s blood streams are held captive, enslaved to the pharmaceutical vaccine madmen who think nothing of injecting poisons like mercury into the young.
“Not only is the United States living beyond its means, it is now borrowing beyond its means,” writes James Turk. Nathan Martin explains the crucial message in the above chart which shows any mathematician the impossible debt situation in America.
“This is a very simple chart. It takes the change in GDP and divides it by the change in Debt. What it shows is how much productivity is gained by infusing $1 of debt into our debt backed money system. Back in the early 1960s a dollar of new debt added almost a dollar to the nation’s output of goods and services. As more debt enters the system the productivity gained by new debt diminishes…[but now] total income can no longer support total debt. In the third quarter of 2009 each dollar of debt added produced NEGATIVE 15 cents of productivity, and at the end of 2009, each dollar of new debt now SUBTRACTS 45 cents from GDP!”
Nathan Martin continues saying, “The world is awash in debt because the central banking system has used debt as a tool for power and control. Countries simply do not have to live under control of bankers. Debt is the most inappropriate way to control an economy as it puts exponential math to work for the banks and against the people who rightfully own their own money system.
