Dirty Secret Behind Warren Buffett's Billions


Consolidation of mass media into mammoth monopolies is the single greatest contributor to the slow death of American democracy and freedom.




"Manufacturing and commercial monopolies owe their origin not to a tendency imminent in a capitalist economy but to governmental interventionist policy directed against free trade." – Ludwig von Mises


"The modern growth of monopolies in the shape of trusts, cartels, federations of employers and so on has greatly increased the power of the capitalist to levy toll on the community.

This tendency will not cease of itself, but only through definite action on the part of those who do not profit by the capitalist regime." - Bertrand Russell

"No programmer wants to draw attention by chosing songs too far
outside the mainstream."- Tom Calococci, KBBT program director

In the first quarter of 2006 research found radio listeners are hearing 23% fewer new rock songs, 14% fewer pop songs, 16% fewer hip-hop songs and 17% fewer adult contemporary songs than they were in the first quarter of 2005.

This occurred as the number of new album releases increased.

Except for in the major metropolitian areas basically two corporate media corporations control the radio airwaves.

The recent shift is part of a broader trend toward homogenization and repetitive airplay that has been underway for the past decade as radio station ownership has consolidated.

The following table lists the communities where these two corporations monopolized the radio airwaves:

"Federal Communications Commission Chairman Kevin Martin launched the FCC formal review of media ownership rules.

"Further Notice of Proposed Rule Making," issued July 25, 2006 is vague, but its intent is clear: to let a few giant media amalgamations swallow up more local television channels, radio stations and newspapers in a single market.

If the changes are approved, one corporation could own the major daily newspaper, eight radio stations and three television stations locally.

In 2009 by allowing stations to broadcast multiple signals one corporation could control 12 or even 18 television channels in a single city.

Media companies enjoy higher profit margins than most industries.

Radio and television station ownership is by definition regulated - these are the public airwaves and there are only so many channels available.

The only question is on whose behalf will Washington make the rules: major media companies or the public?" - Robert W. McChesney, Free Press




Laws of Economics

LB Woolfolk


Principle I . In a normal state of things, all prices are regulated by two things - the amount of currency and the law of supply and demand.

Principle II. A large capital in business operations is a great advantage, and gives to its possessors a marked superiority over competitors without capital.

Principle III. Persons established in business have an advantage over those just starting in the same business, other things equal.

Principle IV. A new man who starts in business poor is at a great disadvantage in competition with rich men who are already established.

Principle V. A new man who starts in business in antagonism with well established rich men will be at such a disadvantage that he will fail.

Principle VI. In business crises, all started by the calling of loans, established capital has a great advantage over newcomers without much capital.

Principle VII. In business crises, which create economic contractions, men without capital who have to borrow money are at a disadvantage and they are the first to go broke.

Principle VIII. Newcomers with little capital cannot enter into competition with well capitalized established rich men and drive them out of business.

Principle IX. In business crises, women of small capital can not successfully enter into competition with rich men well established and take business.

Principle X . The superiority of large capital is apparent in all operations.

Principle XI. The laws of chance varies within certain limits but in the long run conform to regular laws of bell curves both hypothetical and theoretical.

In gambling operations the longest purse will win in the long run.

Principle XII. In operations in Boards of Trade, newcomers with less capital can not break better capitalized men and reduce them to bankruptcy.

Principle XIII . Economically a man can only make a reasonable amount.

Principle XIV. The wealth of a country, under the operation of the natural laws of political economy, will increase most rapidly in times of prosperity and will increase more slowly in eras of industrial depression.


The Principles of Political Economy are violated:

1. In the abnormal condition of prices - no longer regulated by the amount of currency or by the law of supply and demand;

2. In the abnormal condition of business - newcomers with borrowed capital take possession of everything;

3. In the rapid amalgamation of wealth in the hand of a newcomer who has sprung up from poverty into unprecedented wealth; and

4. In the anomalous fact that the wealth of our country has increased most rapidly when the general prosperity was at the lowest ebb.

God does not choose to work miracles by setting aside the regular Laws of Nature, but leaves natural laws to work out their natural results.

The heaviest capital carries with it power to crush smaller operators ; as surely as a thundercloud carries rain, or the North Wind blows frost.



Somewhere Over The Rainbow


"The treasure you think not worth taking trouble to find, this one alone is the real treasure you are longing for.

The glittering treasure you are hunting for day and night lies buried on "the other side of that hill yonder."

B. Traven, The Treasure of the Sierra Madre

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.





This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their philosophical ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior corporate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.

All views and opinions presented on this web site are the views and opinions of individual human men and women that, through their writings, showed the capacity for intelligent, reasonable, rational, insightful and unpopular thought.
