The Scorpion and the Frog on Banking Bail Outs and The Money Power.

I woke up this morning and found myself immediately recalling this fable it seems very apt. Johanna and I had a long chat last night before retiring to bed and discusses the Secrets of Oz and The Money Masters films and our impressions of the Swedish System the Rieksbank I think is the Oldest Central Bank in the World I think its usually said that it is the Bank of England but Sweden has some claims in that direction I must look into it further. Anyhow obviously Sweden has not gone as far down the road of destroying its own Tax base there still is a sensible progressive system here and a very active local politics. I have an inkling that Swedish politicians had this fable in mind when not joining the Euro and in respect of so much other social and economic policy. The Banks are Scorpions it is in their nature to Swindle.

The Last Clip just insists now that Citizen Kane needs to be watched that Film and Orsonne Welles' ostricisation from the money power elite of Hollywood due to William Randolf Hursts fit of peke at the film tells us a lot about the system Of course the Chief was also stung by the self same scorpions himself.

The Scorpion and the Frog is a fable about a scorpion asking a frog to carry him across a river. The frog is afraid of being stung during the trip, but the scorpion argues that if it stung the frog, the frog would sink and the scorpion would drown. The frog agrees and begins carrying the scorpion, but midway across the river the scorpion does indeed sting the frog, dooming them both. When asked why, the scorpion points out that this is its nature. The fable is used to illustrate the position that the behaviour of some creatures is irrepressible, no matter how they are treated and no matter what the consequences.
Variations commonly include a farmer, youth, turtle, or fox in place of the frog, and a snake in place of the scorpion. The Farmer and the Viper is a specific variant that can be attributed to Aesop. There is also a variation[1][2] in which the final words of the scorpion are "It is better we should both perish than that my enemy should live."

[edit]Origin

The origin and author are unknown. Variations of the fable appear in West African[3][4] and Europeanfolktales. The story is often identified with Aesop's Fables, although only variants appear therein.[5][6]A study published in a German journal in 2011[7] points out a connection between the genesis of the fable and the tradition of the Panchatantra, a collection of animal fables dating back to India in the 3rd century BCE. Whereas the original Sanskrit work and its early translations do not contain any fable resembling The Scorpion and the Frog, an earlier version of it, The Scorpion and the Turtle, is to be found as an interpolated fable in post-Islamic variants of the Panchatantra.[8] The study suggests that the interpolation occurred between the 12th and 13th century in the Persian language area[9] and offers a constructive frame of orientation for further research on the question of the fable's origin.

Meet the Fuggers or, its the Money Power stupid. Brexit, The Euro and clueless Elites.



The Eastern Roman empire under Justinian saw the seeds of its final fall to The Ottomans when Abd El Melik started paying tribute in Gold coinage under his own Political Branding you might say.

With all the talk of Brexit being the removal of a final obstacle to the deeper federation of a European State transcending tiresome nationalism, perhaps a little review of History, particularly Monetary history, might not be such a bad thing.

In the review of European competences carried out as a consultation by the foreign office regarding Brexit and or reform requirements of the Eu, two of the papers need to be considered in the context of the Money power argument.

The first paper considered is the Subsidiarity and proportionality aspects of the Lisbon treaty and the competences of the EU institutions vis National and regional democratic institutions. This is a trade-off between Centralised Efficiency and …

Things are really hotting up on the Future Prospects of the Petro Dollar. Climate Change particularly the AGW CO2 Narrative is clung to with religious zeal and promoted by Finance Elites, why is that?
China are rolling out the Petro Yuan, backed by gold.
