The Greenbacker Who Likes FDR

Gary North – May 12, 2021 Printer-Friendly Format

From 2011. Ellen Brown leans so far to the left that her left shoulder scrapes the pavement.That this extreme leftist needs to get a hearing within the yard roots conservative motion is simply another bit of proof that tens of thousands of members of the turf roots conservative movement do not understand “come here” from “sic ’em.”

She has actually already applauded Ben Bernanke to the paradises for QE2. You can read about this here.

Now she comes out four square behind Franklin Roosevelt’s most radical speech right before he died. She then praises Martin Luther King for trying to execute FDR’s vision.She has actually called for a New Costs of Rights . She means a New Offer Expense of Rights. She refers back to Roosevelt’s 1944 State of the Union Address. This was the most radical require a centrally prepared economy in the history of Governmental addresses. Here is a sample.This Republic had its beginning, and grew to its present strength, under the protection of specific inalienable political rights– amongst them the right of complimentary speech, complimentary press, free worship, trial by jury, liberty from unreasonable searches and seizures. They were our rights to life and liberty.As our Country has actually grown in size and stature, however– as our commercial economy expanded–

these political rights proved insufficient to guarantee us equality in the pursuit of happiness.We have actually concerned a clear awareness of the truth that true specific liberty can not exist without financial security and self-reliance.”Necessitous men are not totally free men.”People who are hungry and out of a task are the things of which dictatorships are made.In our day these financial realities have become accepted as self-evident. We have accepted, so to speak, a second Expense of Rights under which a brand-new basis

of security and success can be developed for all no matter station, race, or creed.Among these are: The right to a helpful and advantageous task in the industries or shops or farms or mines of the Country; The right to make

enough to offer sufficient food and clothes and leisure; The right of every farmer to raise and sell his items at a return which will give him and his family a good living; The right of every businessman

, big and small, to trade in an environment of freedom from unfair competitors and dominance by monopolies at home or

abroad; The right of every household to a good house; The right to appropriate healthcare and the chance to accomplish and delight in good health; The right to appropriate security from the financial worries of old age, illness, mishap

, and unemployment; The right to a great education.All of these rights spell security. And after this war is won we should be prepared to move on, in the implementation of these rights, to brand-new goals of human joy and well-being. America’s own rightful place worldwide depends in large part upon how fully these and comparable rights have been carried into practice for our residents. For unless there is security here in the house there can not be long lasting peace in the world.I ask

the Congress to check out the means for executing this economic bill of rights-for it is absolutely the responsibility of the Congress so to do. A number of these problems are currently before committees of the Congress in the form of

proposed legislation. I will from time to time communicate with the Congress with regard to these and additional propositions. In case no adequate program of development is evolved, I am specific that the Nation will understand the fact.The 1791 Costs of Rights approved rights that are immune from state interference. FDR’s expense of rights was a shopping list of voters’rights to government aids and guarantees.Obama has never come close to a list like this. But it was FDR’s vision of the future.It is likewise Ellen Brown’s vision of the future. WOMB TO BURIAL PLACE As always, she blames whatever on fractional reserve banking. She prices estimate Henry Ford, as if Ford understood anything about financial theory, politics, or history.Henry Ford stated,

“It is well adequate that the people of the nation do not comprehend our banking and financial system

, for if they did, I think there would be a transformation prior to tomorrow morning.”

What proof was there that Ford understood any of this? If he did, why didn’t he lead a transformation? We are starting to comprehend, and Occupy Wall Street looks like the start of the transformation. Occupy Wall Street is not
