The fallen beings will use any aspect of society to further their agendas, but few offer them the same opportunities as the economy. This pages outlines briefly how the fallen beings use the economy.
Sustaining a war-time economy, even in peacetime
In a world that is less developed, the fallen beings seek to give themselves privileges by owning something. For example, in the feudal societies, the power elite owned all land and could control the economy by controlling the land. As societies developed more complex economies, the need for money became greater, and the fallen beings have from the very beginning attempted to use the money system.
The feudal lords who owned the land formed the established power elite, but as the economies of nations grew, an aspiring power elite of bankers formed. These bankers realised (guided by fallen beings in the mental and identity realms) that they could use the money and banking system to further their agendas.
As nation states started to form, the fallen beings in the identity realm worked with certain fallen beings who were embodied as kings and emperors. This created tension between nation states and took warfare to a new scale. Naturally, this raised the question of how the kings were going to produce the large armies now needed.
The equation was simple. A nation’s ability to produce an army is tied to the size of its population and economy. In order to build a larger army, the king has to hire soldiers and buy weapons beyond what the nation can produce on its own. The question now becomes where the money is going to come from to buy this army.
Naturally, the only way for a king to raise more money was to tax his own citizens. But since the common population at the time had so little money, it was difficult to raise enough money by taxing the common people. The noble class had the money but they were reluctant to pay higher taxes, especially if they did not agree with the king’s ambitions.
The fallen beings now came up with an ingenious solution that has two elements:
- The king would create a new law that created something called fiat money. This is money that has no intrinsic value (as do gold coins). It is what we today call paper money, which has no value and is only accepted because the law requires people to do so. The king would require all people to accept this as money.
- The king would allow bankers to lend fiat money that they did not actually have as gold deposits. They could lend more money than the amount of gold coins stored in their vaults.
The result of this wartime money system allowed the king to manipulate the value of money and it allowed him to take loans from bankers to finance a war. The bankers could lend more fiat money to the king than they actually had gold in their vaults. It was no longer necessary that a bank had money, it was only necessary that people perceived it to have money. Thus, the wartime economy is based on an illusion.
The result of this wartime economy is that the value of the fiat money is gradually reduced. For the general population, this means they have to work harder to earn the same amount of money. The mechanism is simple.
The bankers create money out of nothing and lend it out with interest. How can people pay back the interest? For the common person this means they have to work harder. For the king, it means he has to devalue the fiat money so he can pay back the interest with the same amount of money. Yet as he does so, the value of the money goes down for all people, meaning all people need more money to buy the same amount of goods.
In this wartime economy all money is created as debt. When a loan is paid back, the interest still has to be paid and that increases the total amount of money. When the amount of money is increased without a corresponding growth in the amount of real goods, inflation is produced. Inflation is a hidden form of tax.
The wartime economy allows a king to raise money for an army without directly taxing the people. Instead, the economy produces inflation so that the people still pay for the war, only they don’t realize that they are doing so. They do not see a direct link between the fact that they have to work harder and the war waged by the king.
All democratic nations today still have a wartime economy where inflation is used as a hidden form of tax. This allows nations to spend more money than they have without directly raising taxes. In many of the more developed nations, the artificially created money is not used on arms but on social programs. Nevertheless, such nations still have a wartime economy that tricks people into paying a hidden tax. This, of course, is precisely the kind of manipulation that only the fallen beings can come up with.
Complicating the economy
Naturally, the fallen beings are not in complete control of the economy. The main driving force behind the economy is that people have a desire to improve their material living conditions and are willing to work harder to do so. Thus, people producing more and more drives economic growth.
Some fallen beings would rather stop economic growth and maintain a society like the feudal society where they form a power elite with great privileges. Other fallen beings are seeking to take advantage of the growing economy. They do this by creating ever-more complicated financial instruments.
Complicating the economy is an elitist move because it becomes more difficult for “outsiders” to use these financial instruments. Obviously, it also becomes more difficult for insiders and this can make it more difficult to evaluate the real risk of the financial instruments they create. This is clearly illustrated in the financial crises of 2008 where even the insiders could not asses the risk of their own instruments.
Many fallen beings in embodiment have as their main agenda to secure power and privilege for themselves. In doing so, they often become blinded and have tunnel vision, thus not seeing that what they are doing will lead to an economic meltdown.
Yet the real insight to gain from this is that these people are often controlled by fallen beings in the identity realm, and they have an entirely different agenda. Their main agenda is to prove that free will was a mistake and can only lead to disaster.
To the fallen beings in the identity realm, a financial meltdown is by no means a disaster. On the contrary, it supports their overall agenda. They have no consideration for the general population, and they also have no consideration for the fallen beings in embodiment whom they use as tools. For them, the more chaos the better.
The gambling economy
What the fallen beings have created in the modern world is a gambling economy. Gambling is based on the concept that you get people to engage in an activity that appeals to the dream of getting rich without working for it. This dream is actually created by the fallen beings because they are not willing to follow the main principle of a natural economy.
This principle is illustrated in a parable told by Jesus. The story is that a master was going away and called his three servants. One he gave ten talents, one five and another two. When he came back, he asked his servants to give account of how they had used the money in his absence. Two had multiplied the money and were rewarded, and one had not multiplied it and was punished.
This principle is based on the fact that we are co-creators. We are given a certain amount of creative energy (talents) from the ascended masters. If we multiply it by co-creating something that benefits the whole, then we are given more creative energy. If we do not multiply it because we are working only to serve ourselves, then there is nothing for the masters to multiply.
The fallen beings have cut themselves off from this flow of creative energy, and thus they have to steal energy horizontally (from the four octaves) instead of receiving it vertically. This means they have to manipulate people into giving them their energy.
The fallen beings are the ones who dream of getting something for nothing, of getting great riches without producing anything of value to others. They want to concentrate wealth in their own hands without using it to raise the whole. Thus, they have projected into the collective consciousness the dream of being lucky and winning a great prize for a small investment. Naturally, many people have bought into this gambling consciousness, this gambling beast.
In reality, this has allowed the fallen beings to create myriad schemes where people give them their money because they hope for a big return. Obviously, the fallen beings are gaining the return and conenctrating wealth in their own hands.
The popular illusion is that gambling is based on luck or fate, but in reality it is based on cold, hard math. Las Vegas is still there because whatever happens in Vegas, people leave more money there than they take away. Likewise with all aspects of the modern economy.
One example is the stock market. Some years ago, there was a huge one-day fall in the Dow Jones index. An anchorman from a major American news station announced that the economy had just lost half a trillion Dollars in one day. Yet this was such a blatant illusion that the network would have to be either incompetent or directly manipulative in order to put something like this on the air.
The brutal fact about the stock market is that a stock has no intrinsic value. The value of a stock is based on people’s perception—and nothing is easier for the fallen beings to manipulate than people’s perception (especially since they control the mainstream media).
When the network said that the economy had lost half a billion Dollars, this was based on looking at the value of all stocks as it was the day before the crash. For example, say there were one million stocks that each sold for 10 Dollars, so they were supposedly worth 10 million Dollars.
Yet this is a complete illusion because the value of a given stock is not tied to anything of real value, such as the company’s profit or dividends. The value of a stock is simply what someone will pay for it on any given day. People buy stock based not on anything real, but on their perception of what they can sell the stock for in the future.
What most people don’t realize is that stock prices will only go up as long as there are more people buying than selling. Imagine that a certain company has a million stocks that each sold for 10 Dollars yesterday. Does that mean that if all people sold their stocks today, they would be able to collect 10 million Dollars? No, because as soon as there are more sellers than buyers, the price will immediately drop. If all people want to sell on the same day, the value of the stock might be zero if there are no buyers.
The stock market is a perfect example of how the fallen beings manipulate the economy. The stock market originally started as a way for companies to raise money for expansion and a way for ordinary people to make money from dividends. The fallen beings turned it into a huge gambling machine by bidding up stock prices based on pure speculation. The value of a stock is not based on what dividends you can make from owning the stock, but instead on what quick profit you can make from reselling the stock after prices go up.
This can work only as long as there is a perception that prices will keep going up. And prices can go up only as long as there are new buyers entering the market, people who also gamble that prices will go up even more so they can sell for more than they paid.
Yet it is cold, hard math that not everyone will be able to sell for more than they paid. It was never the intention of the fallen beings that everyone should make money on stocks—only that they should make money on stocks.
To this end, all they have to do is manipulate people’s perception so that people start thinking the value of a given stock (or even all stock) will go down. The trick is to get people to enter a spiral of ups and downs. You get them to buy based on the belief that prices will continue to go up. Then, you change their perception from the hope of gain to the fear of loss. They will now sell for less than what they paid based on the fear that they could lose even more.
The fallen beings have now created such huge financial institutions that they can manipulate particular stocks or even the entire stock market at will. These institutions do indeed make money if the prices continue to go up. Yet they make far more money if they can inflate prices and get people to buy high, then deflate prices and get people to sell low. They then buy the stocks at the low price and again inflate the market until they can sell at a high price.
This cycle of taking people’s money can continue as long as people have not seen through this dualistic game of getting people to buy based on greed (we can make a quick profit) and getting them to sell based on the fear of loss (if we don’t sell now, the stock will be worth nothing).
As their latest scheme, the fallen beings have managed to get many people in developed nations to tie their pension plans into investments in the stock market. One purpose is to overcome the inherent risk of speculation. The fallen beings hope that if they took such huge risks that the stock market faced the risk of total collapse, the governments would have to step in and secure people’s pensions, thereby bailing the fallen beings out once again because the stock market is “too big to fail.”
Isn’t it time we, the people, stop buying into this artificial economy and demand an economy based on the natural principle that those who are willing to multiply their talents by raising the whole will be rewarded fairly? Isn’t it time we simply let go of this fallen dream of getting something for nothing, instead using what we have and what the fallen beings do not have: our built-in creativity?
