Demise of the West: The Dystopian Prophecies

Demise of the West: The Dystopian Prophecies

“I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies.  If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issuance of their currency, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all their property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.  The issuing power should be taken away from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.” – Thomas Jefferson

Under the dark clouds of an economic recession, the New York Stock Exchange had experienced a 50% plunge. Bank runs and bankruptcies ignited and spread quickly, as with a wildfire. A severe lack of market liquidity would propagate a wave of destruction and devastation; perhaps purging the system for a better day. This was the Panic of 1907.

At the time, the United States had no central bank – a lingering sign of distrust and lessons learned from the past, perhaps sent from the ghosts of its founding fathers. The only way out of the misery was with help from a certain wealthy financier, John Pierpont Morgan. Not only had lessons not been learned from the past, but the seeds of subversion had unfortunately been sown.

The alchemists on Jeckyll Island had masterminded their creature – The Federal Reserve – just over a century ago. The fate of the West was sealed.

The Dystopian Prophecies:

I. The streets of old allies and foes will be the first to gush,
bisected twice, none the less; rippling across the pond,
withering big bourse alike whilst bots short longer,
all beneath the watchful eye of a moon’s loop.

II. Resonating westward across Magellan’s Asian gateway
into an inevitable financial tsunami, the sun’s rise will wreak havoc.
Nip’s Nik also cleaved twice, the worst has really yet to arrive,
for the larger part of the emperor’s black arts will liberate the monstrous specter.

III. Obliterated will become their trusting populace’s nest egg,
as their lenders and insurers loot away and away to repay.
Trust and harmony forsaken, anarchists they will become,
as each sun’s inflows will balloon into exorbitance.

IV. The Euromeister vampire will finally get his turn,
unleashing a leviathan of paper and digital fury,
up the cracks of the fragmentary house of dominoes,
in a wishful attempt to keep all afloat.

V. Come calling for the yellow touchable some will,
to naked fixing big city partners double-crossed the pond,
leaving some hung to dry with worthless let it to be done.
The curtain will fall on the wizards’ decades-long stratagem.

VI. No worries though, as an honorable pair will now hold the reins.
The eastward flow almost complete, new kings set to reign.
The lion will guard in honor, the dragon’s Paris never bare.
Balance and honor restored, the mirror’s reflection shines true.

VII. No longer barbarous, the relic will luster true, two then threefold.
As will its palpable cousin, a bit quicker and in a more just ratio.
Binary they will become, backed and bankable.
Trusted and accepted, engraving a new paradigm.

VIII. No longer Treasured, nightly collateral is damaged beyond repair.
Benchmark yielded for destruction, abandon en masse in a flair.
Dispose before it’s too late, will there be anyone left to take?
A tried and truer touchstone set, to emerge in its place.

IX. Having been deprived of its golden foundation,
layer by layer, the green pyramid will crumble,
endlessly increasing misery on its faithful serfs, and
all under the powerlessness of a watchful all-seeing eye.

X. Abandoned, unwanted, and without backbone or bite,
the Turtle Army will finally find its footing and true north,
rapidly swimming across the cold and lonely pond,
only to be unwelcomely despised, dreaded and loathed.

XI. A lost grasp on debt rate levers will derive fury on the too big to fails,
the mighty Frankenfort’s twins will be the first overboard into the abyss,
chained at the ankles, three colossal cousins will also be yanked down.
Spared, the evil squid will maul away, becoming more monstrous than ever.

XII. With spells and potions evaporated, concoct they can no more;
the alchemists will nonetheless howl as wolves, but all in utter vain.
The grey lady with the tan will draw into her sacoche,
and laughingly come to la rescous of her central cronies.

XIII. The Jeckyll will seek a new potion for a cancer’s cure.
Malignancy in tow, the looting cells will shrivel up,
while remaining ones will lock-in their lifelines,
all in vain though, as the centenarian will gulp his last breath.

XIV. Yet a new bunco will unravel about the deceit of receipts;
while taking stock of the situation, broke some will be left,
by brokers broken of trust. What’s yours is mine, but not his.
What you do not hold, you do not have. How could they know?

XV. Fearful for his last rations, Winston will seek hold of what’s his;
for CAPCON’s grip will nervously tighten, perhaps even bailing in.
Too valuable to lose, the topflights will plan to jet,
only to be locked-in the land of the not so free.

XVI. Ghost depositories shown void of the gilded relic;
the grey lady will blush, bumble, and fumble sevenfold.
Her assembly, skimmed of legitimacy, dwindling in the kitty.
The prospect of a backed basket no more, the ship has sailed.

XVII. In opposition, disgust and distrust with her partiality,
the grey lady will lose five rising stars, perhaps more.
Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.
Brickwork, checks and balances en vertu, developing friends, disdaining foes.

XVIII. The creators of papir know its true value in decree,
the time has come to share, of what is becoming more rare,
secret no more, let there be light shining on the immortal relic,
for all to see, creating an envy want on by the former powers that be.

XIX. With lifelines dried up, puppetmasters will seek new streams,
further taxing an already shriveled populous, history repeats, as does misery.
Occupy and burn they will, like a Roman candle in the wind,
fueling duels without rules, no longer lacking in earnest.

XX. Shackled for far too long, cradles of democracy and empire will flee first,
in what they’ve known all along, an experiment gone terribly wrong.
A faith gets sealed, as did a floating palace under a cold and starry night,
loosening the unchosen grips from the levers, anchoring into history.

XXI. Unfinished it will remain, as the secret order’s enlightened ones
will be erased and deposed by western friends and eastern foes,
return into darkness, where you belong, in a karma of void and emptiness.
Forces of Good will shine a prevailing light aloft your traces of evil.

XXII. The grandsons of liberty will sow the seeds and refresh the tree,
resurrecting a lonely and forgotten Utopia, with help from the abandoned,
and resistance of old, reforming the fractured pillars, purging away the cancer.
A new cycle will begin, as it always does, come together, come in step.

Ok, here's my shot at

Ok, here's my shot at decoding one:

VII. No longer barbarous, the relic will luster true, two then threefold.
As will its palpable cousin, a bit quicker and in a more just ratio.
Binary they will become, backed and bankable.
Trusted and accepted, engraving a new paradigm.

Gold will jump in value

Silver will rise even more.

They will become the basis of a new monetary system

They'll allow us to enter a new paradigm in how business is done.

I'll bite on I.

The streets of old allies and foes will be the first to gush,

Things will unravel in Europe first.

Bisected twice, none the less; rippling across the pond,

Eastern Europe against western, northern against southern.  Then problems will spread to the United States.

Withering big bourse alike whilst bots short longer

Large stock markets and financial institutions will fail together while trading computers will continue to short the markets for a little longer.

all beneath the watchful eye of a moons loop.

The financial collapse will take a month.

T. Jefferson quote

The Thomas Jefferson quote about banking cannot be traced to before 1933 according to Monticello.org. Someone needs to do their homework.

Regarding your comment

I am aware of these notes on Monticello. On the whole, the quote paraphrases his original saying and notes, even if they come from different sources of his or his historians, as do countless historical quotes from many historical figures. So it doesn't remove the fact that these are his thoughts and sayings even if it is not his precise verbatim.

If you really want to show your wit, try and decipher one of my quatrains...

Sort of like Jesus quotes in

Sort of like Jesus quotes in the bible?

not trying to take this thread to a religion argument but, many quotes that people think are from "the horses mouth" came after their deaths but are attributed to them anyway.  

From reading a large amount of Jefferson histories I can say (imo), the OP quote is exactly how he thought.

Grey Lady

This is clearly Christine LeGarde of the IMF. The sevenfold is a reference

to her WEIRD ASS numerology speech. But why is she Grey? Is she an alien?
