In April, the Free Thought Project reported on Ronald Bernard, who is a Dutch entrepreneur whose drive and business contacts quickly catapulted him into the world of the financial elite. In his April interview, Bernard touched on the horrifying things he saw as a member of these elite groups. But now he's going even further.
While his interview De Vrije Media in April touched on the utterly murderous and insane practices of the elite, a new interview released this month goes much deeper. In the second interview, Bernard explains how and why the ruling class are able to maintain this control, while committing horrid crimes, and while extracting wealth from the citizens through unscrupulous and illegal means, all the while maintaining immunity from the law.
They're "like a bunch of vampires, that is what it is. In 20 years they already stole 100% of the real value. This is what caused the national debts to increase, you will see everywhere, with individuals, that those debts keep growing," Bernard explains as he details our current situation.
"Then reports start showing up, like Oxfam Novib after a global research did show that 8 people own as much as half the people in the world. How is this possible?" he asks. "It's not just speculation, it's the interest rate that takes the real actual value and adds it to the capital at the top."
He is correct, 8 people own more wealth than half the world and it is because the system they built is set up to funnel wealth upwards. These people robbing the masses with impunity is entirely possible, as Bernard explains, because they operate outside of normal laws.
"We are now talking about these free states with immunity from everyone, free states where nothing and no one can do anything against this — including people working for these institutions. They also get immunity."
What Bernard is referring to in the quote above is illustrated on nearly a daily basis. We see bankers across the planet get exposed for funding terrorism, human trafficking, money laundering for drug cartels, and employing a scheme of wholesale robbery against the commoner. When these criminals are caught — and even admit to their crimes — they are let off with no accountability.
Bernard then goes on to make a powerful yet ominous statement.
"All misery on earth is a business model."
When we look at the suffering of other human beings across the planet, we can link this back to a predatory state or elite entity immune from the rule of law through special privilege obtained through the state.
"Syria is a business model," Bernard says. "It is about resources and some other interests."
While Bernard goes on to note that there is a single organization at the top running things, we feel that it is a little more complex. There are certainly power players who influence global policy, but there are constant rifts within these elite groups separated by different nationalities and cultures. However, that doesn't change the nature of the effect — debt and suffering.
This top-down model, as Bernard points out in the latter part of the interview, is "the ideal situation for psychopaths" because they get to prey on the masses using the power of the state.
Most importantly, as Bernard points out, none of this will change as long as people are unaware of how it works.

"As long as people don't realize how it works: How they're deceived... How their being robbed...How the value, their value, is taken away from them to enrich the rich even further... as long as the people don't see this, as long as they are not aware, nothing will change."
Even when people do become aware of the banking elite and their ability to rule from outside the law, they believe they can change it by acting within that system. This deception is maintained by instilling the illusion of democracy.
This control is maintained, even over society's most brilliant minds, because people have been told their entire lives about the "illusion that we live in a democracy." They buy into it because it makes "one feel like they have contributed to the democracy, and real change is about to happen."
But, like Bernard notes, that change never comes because the people who enter the system, even if they are originally genuine at heart, become puppets for the status quo.
What Bernard is talking about is not some conspiracy theory. It is very real. As the Free Thought Project reported this week, in an interview with French publication Le Figaro, Russian President Vladimir Putin, noted this exact same thing when he said U.S. presidents serve as little more than puppets for the ruling oligarchy.
“A certain person may be elected by the public on the basis of his merit and ideals - but rarely is this person able to formulate policy,” Putin said.
While this situation may seem bleak on the surface, resistance is most assuredly not futile.
The good news is that there is a solution to this madness and it is in the palm of your hand right now, or on the screen in front of you. Humanity has the ability to communicate with one another across the world — instantly.
It is up to us how we choose to use this ability. Will we spend it staring at videos of kittens 24/7, or break away for a few moments to take in and disseminate information that will help to free our fellow human.
Information and knowledge will free us from those who wish to keep us oppressed but only when we want to be free. This all starts with you.
To quote Butler Shaffer from his eye-opening book, The Wizards ofOzymandias:
“We will not become free when the state goes away. Rather the state will go away once we are free.”
