At the heart of economics is the subject of money in our free-enterprise system. If everyone would take a close look at this system, they would understand that money, and lots of it, equates to power.

Really, it is power over people. After economics (and money), there comes politics (government) and religion, and these two subjects also at their core are set up and formed like economics. They get power over people and get the people to obey rules and laws made by leaders in various parts of the world. Do religions hold great power over people? One has only to read the history of the Middle East to see lots of evidence of this power over people.

Combine all three of these powers in one place. Think of the power to sway and control the population, to live and obey the rules and laws of this combined power.

Take for example the United States, which may one day find its society under the power of one political power, one religion and one economy, say a group of money-changers.

Who knows what may happen to those who oppose such combined power of an oligarchy.Can it happen here? Maybe, but it’s up to the people.

There may be a solution to our fears and anxiety, and that is to not fall prey to the propaganda savants of the 21st century. Who are these savants? One will not find the answer to this question unless one reads history. There is only one problem; it may be too late to start a reading program today. Time will tell.
