Food for Thought

Just a link to two books by Michael Rowbotham you ought to read. First, Grip of Death: A Study of Modern Money, Debt Slavery and Destructive Economics: "I happen to believe it is one of the most profound economic and political tracts of the last 30 years. I have studied economics and much of what Rowbotham says is uncontroversial and has its basis in Austrian Economics (for those who are interested they should read Prof. Rothbard's works on monetary economics). The shrill criticism below is just a little too loud for me. If they don't like the book why tell others NOT to read it? Why can't people make up their own minds? Methinks they protest too much.

It is also disturbing that even Amazon.com no longer has the book in stock. Could Amazon.com please make this important work available for the public to purchase?

You should try to gain access to this important work before access to it is taken from you. If you are confused by where the world is headed and disturbed by what is happening in the economy please get hold of this book - it may just give you the answers you have been seeking.

Get a copy of the book and make up your own mind. I beg you
[reviewer, Amazon].

"The term mortgage refers to the medieval 'death pledge', a form of borrowing where the owner pledges his house to another 'until death'. This form of usury was forbidden under Christian law. The book's title derives from that term and the evidence Rowbotham outlines justifies his use of the similarly grim term debt slavery. The distinguishing characteristic of a slave he argues is not that he is badly treated. Rather, it is that he has no say over important aspects of his life [from Joseph Glynn's review at Feasta.

Second, Goodbye America!: Globalization, Debt and the Dollar Empire:The injustice of Third World debt is exposed in this incisive and penetrating work by the brilliant author of The Grip of Death. He warns that the Third World debt trap is an extreme case of the same debt trap that all working families face in our own economies.

You may think Third World debt is a distant problem for distant lands. Think again. This book shows that the mechanisms pushing the Third World into permanent poverty are the same as those that are deferring your retirement and pushing your children into permanent debt with no hope of escape. Like docile frogs slowly being boiled alive, we are slowly being impoverished by the major banking institutions we trust. This book shows how.

Please read this important work

keep up the great work guys! Going to take a look at those books when I get a chance.
With 9-11, its obvious the official story doesnt hold water.. the closer you look at the evidence the more you realize this. ..and the power in which our media and their so called experts can quickly alter reality for us despite the obvious facts. I strongly recommend this video here:
http://www.loosechange911.com/

It is produced and directed by 3 22yr olds and is simply stunning.
You can grab a hold out Loose Change 2nd Ed. via bitorrent sites like www.torrentreactor.net.

Keep up the great work.
