Yesterday I watched Lincoln and was really disgusted by the movie.
Lets be clear – the actors were great, it was well shot and it generally was a ‘good’ movie from a typical movie going experience.
Here is what I was DISGUSTED by – the utter and complete distortion of reality that the movie portrayed. Beyond any reasonable doubt, Abraham Lincoln would turn in his grave.
The entire movie was about the issue of race and slavery. “Are black people the same as white people?”. “Do black people deserve the rights of human beings”? It was positioned as though the entire war was fought over the issue of morality. WRONG. It was fought over MONEY. Economics. Finance. Cashflow. Business. Profit.
“The money power preys upon the nation in time of peace and conspires against it in times of adversity. It is more despotic than monarchy, more insolent than autocracy, more selfish than bureaucracy. I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me, and causes me to tremble for the safety of our country. Corporations have been enthroned, an era of corruption will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people, until the wealth is aggregated in a few hands, and the republic is destroyed. ” ~ Abraham Lincoln
The race issue was very secondary. Infact it wasn’t a question of morality in the first place. Imagine the increased ROI that you would get by having 4 million people working for FREE??
The entire movie made ZERO mention of:
- The Greenback dollar which was a currency he introduced to fight off the uber high interest dollars that the global banking cartels were trying to entrench. This infuriated them and ultimately was the reason he got killed.
- The Rotschild family who was the most powerful faction trying to entrench their control over America.
- The Economics of slavery and why it was an issue in the first place.
- The roots behind his assassins. The movie avoids the issue of his assassination attempts and who was behind them all COMPLETELY.
The movie didn’t really ‘lie’ per-se – it just never told the truth.
I’m saddened by the way the powers at large use the pretext of ‘entertainment’ to form public opinion and indirectly promote corporate agenda.
I’m also saddened by how the issue of money and private central banking still remains a taboo topic. No-one ever mentions the real source of evil in the world.
The Government should create, issue, and circulate all the currency and credits needed to satisfy the spending power of the Government and the buying power of consumers. By the adoption of these principles, the taxpayers will be saved immense sums of interest. Money will cease to be master and become the servant of humanity. -Abraham Lincoln
