Ross pointed out, that officially, the national assets were sold at auction, but in reality they were given away for pennies on the dollar of their real value. "They were effectively stolen from society, by the pirates, as a means for stealing more," said Ross. "Then, everyone else got into the act, too. Eventually, the entire society became profit oriented pirates, stealing from one another. The real production of things that enrich society very existence, became a secondary issue. We gave this vital task to other nations. We had to do this. Since we didn't have much of an economy anymore, we had no option but to have other nations do the producing for us, nations like China. We gave China the 'opportunity' to allow itself to be piratized, and China complied. China supplied America with industrial products which the American pirates couldn't be bothered to produce for themselves. In return the pirates gave China worthless bags of money that China couldn't use to buy much of anything with from America, since America didn't produce much of anything anymore that China could use, or very little of it. Still, China felt itself to be rich, because it was told that money is wealth. That means, that China fell into the same piratization trap as everybody else, because China, too, believed that widely accepted lunacy that money is wealth. China fell into the same trap, as America did, only in a different way, and not yet quite as deep. China's delusion that money equals wealth caused the Chinese people to willingly throw the products of their labor away, for virtually nothing in return. That means that China is literally throwing the products of its people into the garbage can, in real terms. It is trading real value for something that has intrinsically no value. That's stupid, isn't it? And China is not alone in this," Ross added. "The whole world has been drawn into this game, so don't feel badly about it."
"A society's wealth is found in the products which it is able to produce for itself to enrich its existence," I said to the lady who had asked the question in the first place. I told her that the European society figured this out in the late 1300s and created at total shift in its thinking. "Out of this shift in thinking," I said to her, "the Golden Renaissance unfolded, that became one of the greatest periods of human development of all times, and in every respect. It became one of the richest periods in history, and this without money bags standing at the center of it, or any pirates robbing society blind. These wouldn't have been tolerated. They would have been incarcerated. Of course, the people of this historic period had a little help in making this paradigm shift, because the people of ancient Greece had already laid the foundation for this revolutionary intellectual transition fifteen centuries earlier. All that the people had to do, was start the paradigm shift and to go back in time to the best intellectual tradition. They studied it, read up on it, and refined it, and of course, they took it a few steps further."
"The American people obviously can't read anymore," said Ross and laughed.
"Oh, they can read all right," Steve responded. "They read Aristotle, the traitor of humanity, who teaches them the art of pirateering, who tells them that pirateering is good. The whole Aristocracy is reading that nonsense, because this nonsense doesn't require them to produce anything of value. It only requires them to steal what other people produce. Stealing is easier. They even call the thieves, nobility! Stealing is noble. That is the crap that the American people read. And that is also what they are doing all over the world. They are stealing the lifeblood out of the global society, quite literally, all around the globe. And they have given themselves the laws, and the titles, and the authority, to do this global pirateering legally. Nevertheless, giving the pirates fancy titles, laws, and positions of power, doesn't make their crimes against humanity right. The fact remains: Piracy can't create a productive economy, but destroys it, and thereby destroys nations. China does not stand as an exception from this."
"NO," said the fat man again, "you are wrong. How can you be babbling about piracy? America is a noble country. Maybe it is a bit ambitious, but basically it is OK."
He turned to me, as it were for a private scolding. "I am ashamed of you. I am ashamed of having you in this room. You are insulting your own country by calling America a country of pirateers. The fact is, America is helping every country on the planet. Whenever a country is in trouble, the people go to the IMF and cry, bail us out, bail us out! Then the IMF goes to America, and America comes up with the money, reluctantly perhaps, but it always pays up."
Ross smiled at him. "That's a part of the problem," Ross replied. "If the American system is so wonderful, why is it, that the whole world is in trouble and keeps on running to the IMF, bail us out, bail us out? Did you ever ask yourself that question? And did you ever ask yourself why the IMF pays up, again and again?"
"The IMF has never been interested in helping a country's economic development," said Ushi, "at least not since 1965 when the IMF had been hijacked, itself. From this time onward, the IMF has become a debt collection agency for the pirateers. It became a part of the restructured world-financial system, that became a system designed for pirateering, that destroyed and bankrupted the world-economy. Indeed, the IMF has no choice but to pay up to bail out the bankrupt nations, because if it doesn't, its entire system becomes unglued. Not a single country that is receiving the so-called IMF bail out funds, ever sees one penny of the money anymore, it only sees its debt grow. The IMF takes all the bail-out money right back to pay for debt service demands. That's why the IMF gives it out in the first place, to avoid a sovereign default that could bring its whole house down."
Ross agreed. He said that it is utterly stupid for the nations to keep running to the IMF, asking the pirates to bail them out. "They shouldn't do it. The bottom line is, that the nations around the world are borrowing money from the IMF, some at credit card rates of interest, and this for no other purpose than to keep the IMF system alive; that is, to keep the pirateering alive that is killing them economically, and is murdering their people physically in the process of it. There is nothing good in this system for any nation, for which this system deserves to be kept alive. The nations are stupid to fall for the IMF genocidal terrorist tricks."
"Actually, the nations aren't doing this voluntarily anymore," interjected Steve. "The IMF agencies and their masters whom they serve, are literally scaring the countries into compliance. They even use terrorist tactics when the mere scaring doesn't help anymore. If this happened during the Renaissance, I can assure you, the whole lot would be in jail. But nobody did this kind of pirateering during the Renaissance, for the simple reason that the people didn't look for wealth in money. They found their wealth in what was being produced. But today, we live in a totally different world, with a totally different kind of thinking that border on insanity. That is why money is everything and the pirateers reign supreme. Society treats them like heroes, and bows to them as they stick their knives deeper into people. On this platform the IMF has killed more human beings during its reign from 1965 on, than Adolf Hitler ever did, or ever hoped to do."
The fat man protested again. "America is a rich country," he said. "It doesn't have to resort to such tactics. And it doesn't even tolerate them. I have been there. I have seen it with my own eyes."
