This video I found is very well put together. It's main focus is the enviremental agenda, but it also hints at economic freedom in general. It points out how our nation is essentially on a route to economic suicide. It's about 3 or 4 minutes long:

The part that annoys me most, of all of this hypocrisy, is what me and my peers being taught in school.

I always had fun when I knew more than the teacher about something. Make sure the link is correct before posting it.

What I said has nothing to do with the topic, I'm just arrogant.

Have you ever considered the world's output of goods and services to be "The Economic Pie"?



It's a big pie, but it's finite.



Have you ever considered, that today, as in every day of recorded history, some group, or groups, are set on "conquering the world"?



With the weapons technology has unleashed, the "old way" of military conquest no longer is applicable. So, how would this group, or groups, satisfy their desire to conquer the world?



Have you ever considered, that controlling the money supply, the economies, of nations is a form, a very effective and subtle form of conquest?



Have you ever considered, that the promises made the world over for "the good life" all depend upon how the economic pie is sliced, and that the US has the biggest piece of the pie, and that if you were one of the group who seeks world domination, you'd have to deliver something to all the folks you've promised "a good life"?



Since the economic pie is finite, to even partially deliver on your promises means taking away from some so that you can "give" to others ... and that the "others" are the West, and that the economies of the US and Europe are a heartbeat away from collapse.



Understanding an enemy is a crucial element in resisting it. However, understanding who the enemy IS must come first.



The enemy isn't the Democrats or the Republicans, though members of each party willingly prostitute themselves to the enemy. The enemy largely is out of sight, manipulating world events, luring the entire world into its web of debt, keeping the vision of "the good life" in plain view, while keeping it just out of reach.



We must come to know who our enemy is. If we don't know who our enemy is, we have no chance of defeating it, and all of our fighting amongst ourselves will result in nothing more or less than ensuring their survival, and assisting them in their vision of world conquest.



It is these stealth conquerers who want America to fail.

I agree with parts of this video, however the smashing of clean energy irks me. A man named Buckminster Fuller came up with the term spaceship earth. It is a concept where you think of earth as a spaceship with limited resources. We all have to cooperate to run the space ship properly and we cannot over consume the few resources we actually have. Clean energy will not destroy america, but save the world.

The world doesn't need saving, we do: the earth has been through much worse than human actions and survived to flourish even greater. Now, if we continue to do what we do, then WE won't be around anymore, but the earth will be just fine.

The world refers to human civilization. You are right, Earth will be fine. but this world will be screwed.
