30+ Emmy winning journalist: 1% are ‘mercenary class, predators, looters.’ What do you say? What will you do?

In this three minute video, 30+ Emmy-winning journalist Bill Moyers characterizes the 1% as an oligarchy poised to end democracy and make change from within impossible. He calls them:

  • “the mercenary class,”
  • “predators,”
  • “looters.”

What’s missing from Bill’s analysis: the 1%’s main acts in war and money are illegal, demanding their immediate arrests to stop their war-murders of millions, harm to billions, and looting of trillions.

These crimes are as vicious as can be imagined, with strategy to “cover” these crimes with corporate media to keep the public in the dark.

Mr. Moyers is clear that the 1%, if exposed, would outrage the 99% to “tear the system apart with their bare hands.”

Alternative media and public awakening are exposing the facts, providing the 99% with fundamental choices:

  1. Stand for facts and justice, especially in the face of such obvious crimes and lies centering in war and money from our “leaders.” I recommend Truth and Reconciliation rather than arrests.
  2. Reject factual examination of wars, poverty, and debt, while embracing paper-thin propaganda. That is: become a willing sheeple.
  3. Partner with the criminals to turn the 99% into clueless work animals to use for one’s own material gains. That is: turn to the evil Dark Side.

What do you choose? What will you do?

Choose carefully: choices of this magnitude have proportional consequences.

      Nice artistic expression! Yes, patience while we paradoxically go for it 🙂

    This ongoing Carl Herman rant just gets loopier and loopier.

    There is nothing wrong with the profit motive, Carl. Without the profit motive three-quarters of the so-called 99% would die of starvation in a year. The problem is the consumer idiocy of the 99%

    If YOU want to meet the 99%, go to Walmart on a Saturday at about two in the afternoon. They’re all there with their wallets open and their EBT cards ready, supporting the heirs of Sam Walton, the founder of Walmart.

      Strawman argument, tonto, which exposes your comment as nothing more than either witless enablement of War Crimes and bankster looting, or complicity with the biggest criminals in human history.

      The topic of this article: CRIMES OF THE 1% CENTERING IN WAR AND MONEY.

      This is not an article on profit motive; not even close.

      But you do contribute to help people choose what they have to say, and what they do. As always, for that I appreciate your contrast.

      • Tonto

        No, Carl. The topic of the article is your dropping the name of Bill Moyers, a classless, irresponsible journalist who has and will play both side of the street in order to further his sorry publicly-funded PBS fame and fortune. Moyers clearly has no real ethical or logical bearing. He is just another scientific humanitarian like yourself, someone who believes in the Ayn Rand Atlas Shrugged story of how wonderful the world would be, if all the idiots would simply do what all the scientists wanted all the idiots to do.

        If you really want a laugh, folks, read Atlas Shrugged again.

        And just how does Carl Herman personally address the profit motive? LoL, Carl.

        Like I said, Carl, you just keep getting loopier and loopier with your anecdotes about the imaginary 1%-99% paradigm, war and “money”. The terms 1% and 99% are merely the modern equivalent of the way Karl Marx viewed the world through his rose-tinted glasses.

        Carl, there is a worldwide economic depression going on. That fact does not in any meaningful way enhance the popular appeal of the antiwar-socialist dreamland you have dredged-up and concocted for yourself. The big problem the world faces right now, is not social organization. The big problem the world faces right now is scientific society has built itself a societal Rube Goldberg credit-economy machine dependent upon constant population and debt growth. That contraption has toppled over.

        And like Humpty-Dumpty, no one is going to put the economy back together again with grand plans. Economies grow like plants do in nature, slowly, with one step required before the next step can take place. There’s no point trying to reinvent the growth of the economy. Only the profit motive will provide stable, real economic growth (reconstruction).

        And right now, it is obvious an increasing number of countries worldwide see war as the most profitable route. The U.S. is not the only country preparing for world war.

    Bill Moyers is also CFR & PBS, so his words may be just a deflection for his being an Insider of the 1%.

    • Carl_Herman

      True. And I’ll use all voices to bring the facts to light 🙂

      • charlestonvoice

        In fact, as you pointed out, Moyers doesn’t reveal anything.

        • Carl_Herman

          He discusses the 1% not paying taxes, bailouts for banks, lack of Wall Street regulation, but yeah, all he can do for policy is yearn for Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert to say more. He excuses corporate media’s lame reporting, but does hit a strong point that the facts made clear would evoke the 99% to end the system.

          The point is for the 99% to demand better for themselves. A basic civics test is to stop criminals who murder millions, harm billions, and loot trillions. Until that is clear, we’ll endure more of the same.

          • charlestonvoice

            Then we need more government to tighten-up on the 99% from precipitating mayhem and violence.

          • Carl_Herman

            I’d prefer both:
            1. a synergy of US law enforcement arresting obvious US criminal leaders in war and money. This would lead to an opening for whistle-blowers to come forward to provide the full stories of what happened.

            2. graceful 99% civic engagement without mayhem and violence.

            But whatever. This game is larger than anyone can control or seemingly predict. I know that I will self-express to end obvious crimes. Whether the endgame is graceful or ugly is what we’ll all discover together.

            With enough will power from the 99%, I predict most of the 1% insiders in CFR, etc. will reclaim their humanity and join us. But we’ll see. I’m sure they’re feeling the choices.

          • Tonto

            “With enough will power from the 99%, I predict most of the 1% insiders in CFR, etc. will reclaim their humanity and join us.”

            Carl, prediction is not the predecessor of the future. In order for a prediction even to have a chance, the choice of objects about which the prediction is made, must exist in reality. Predictions are not made more accurate by using vagaries, terminologies and conceptions, e.g., “1%”, “99%”, and “humanity”.

            Your rant here, is little different from those who proclaim that all the world’s money problems are attributable to the Jews. I realize you don’t use the word, Jews, but just the same, read your posts. One could easily supplant the word Jews for every instance in which you use the term, 1%

            To differentiate yourself from those people, perhaps you should identify the 1% you are talking about.

            And you should also note, Carl, in our age, for every prediction a blog writer makes, the credibility of their argument declines precipitously. This is especially true of anyone who would mean to make the justification of their wild arguments accord with some similitude of history.

            The history of predictions is a laughable saga, Carl. Your never ending ranting story with its tenuous predictions, is as laughable as Mark Twain’s famously hilarious story about the Jumping Frog.

            When I read Twain’s about how this man continued on and on… What follows here is quoted from the -THE NOTORIOUS JUMPING FROG OF CALAVERAS COUNTY- –>> ” He never smiled he never frowned, he never changed his voice from the gentle flowing key to which he tuned his initial sentence, he never betrayed the slightest suspicion of enthusiasm; but all through the interminable narrative there ran a vein of impressive earnestness and sincerity, which showed me plainly that, so far from his imagining that there was anything ridiculous or funny about his story, he regarded it as a really important matter, and admired its two heroes as men of transcendent genius in ‘finesse.'”


            I suggest, you Carl are but cut from the same cloth as the garrulous Mr. Simon Wheeler in Twain’s story. I am from the Midwest, Carl. I recognized your type the first time I read one of your posts.

  • It might be that we are not giving ourselves a fair shake at analyzing these dynamics because our analysis comes from the wrong discipline.

    I do not mean to say that what this post points out is inaccurate, it is incredible accurate.

    It is just that the analysis does not sufficiently come from an insight into organized madness.

    The father of psychoanalysis encouraged us to develop a psychoanalysis not of individuals, but of large groups, because the larger danger of mental problems comes from there.
