Being Governed by Your Inferiors…

The following correspondence originally took place upon the Facebook wall of my friend, Jordan K…

"Plato: 427 -347 BCE"

“Plato: 427 -347 BCE”

Jordan K.: One of the consequences of refusing to participate in [censored] is that you end up being governed by your [censored].

Rayn: Plato understood the true power of the Republic, and knew the dangers of the citizenry becoming disinterested in politics!

Jordan K.: lol i was wondering if anybody would know who wrote that but i shoulda known!

Rayn: No doubt! To be fair, though, I’ve had a picture of this quote saved inside of my computer for years now (along with many others).

Banking with Hitler – Treasonous Allied Banksters

I originally posted the following video and commentary onto my Facebook wall…

Banking with Hitler:

(documentary written & directed by Paul Elston, originally airing on BBC in 1998)

 My Commentary: IBM is not the only traitorous culprit guilty of collaboration with the Nazis! Bankers in Allied nations worked hand-in-hand with the Third Reich before and during WWII, and banksters working at the Bank of England not only secretly financed Hitler with loans while Europe was being invaded, and England was being bombed, but they also leaked valuable intelligence to the Third Reich, directly resulting in the deaths of Allied forces! Besides this, while the US was still at peace with Germany, American-owned Chase Bank in Paris eagerly collaborated with the Nazis and took measures to seize the bank accounts and assets of their Jewish customers!

Discussing IBM’s Collaboration with Nazi Party During WWII

The following correspondence originally took place on my Facebook wall, upon my post, “IBM Collaborated with Nazis, Used Technology to Process Concentration-Camp-Victim Data During WWII“…

RaynExcerpt from “The Corporation: Taking the Right Side”:

International Business Machines (IBM) was founded in 1896 in Endicott, NY, under the name, “Tabulated Machines Company.” In 1911, it was incorporated under the name “Computing Tabulating Recording Corporation.” In 1924, it was given its current title by then-CEO Thomas J. Watson, who oversaw the company during its collaboration with Nazi Germany before and during World War II.

From 1933 to 1945, IBM was hired by the Third Reich to provide them with punch-cards, and custom-configured punch-card reading machines, that would allow the Nazis to quickly and efficiently process concentration camp victim data. With the punch-card machines requiring constant service, and the gathered victim information stored within, IBM housed customer sites in almost every concentration camp, so that the company could keep their operation running smoothly, and quickly tabulate the results of data for their fascist employers. Incidentally, even the infamous Auschwitz arm tattoo began as an IBM number!

Before U.S. involvement in WWII, then-CEO of IBM, Thomas J. Watson, made numerous arguments to the international community to lift sanctions against Germany (though, he was already knowingly working for the Nazis). In 1937, during the same year that he became president of the International Chamber of Commerce, Watson received the Cross of Merit of the Decoration of the German Eagle with a Star medal, the second-highest honor bestowed upon foreigners by Nazi Germany. However, after receiving much criticism for accepting the medal, in 1940, he returned it.

Kenny C.: i love technology.

Rayn: This sort of information puts a whole new meaning to the catchphrase, “Isn’t technology wonderful?”
