Great article. Some very frightening similarities to what is happening in this country as well. The compounding of wealth and power by a few individuals. The use of brute force to coerce into getting what the powerful want. The trampling of individual freedoms of the "common people".
I have never been one for conspiracy theories, but lately things like this that come to light in so many different governments certainly points to them. The worst part is these governments seem to say..."yeah so what, we did that, what are you going to do about it". This includes the US government.
The fact that they are now learning that getting control of the money and the economy is the key to garnering the real power is what is the most frightening to me. With no real economic sense they can destroy their country very rapidly by inadvertently collapsing the economy.
