In order to buy into the premise of a cabal of wealth & power bent on world domination you have to assume they are above average in the brains department. So, let's play this thing through a bit. The cabal's smart enough to cook up this multi-generational plan and they still manage to not connect the dots a couple of years ago when Buffett called derivatives "financial weapons of mass destruction?" Deflation = Destruction. Nothing scares the shit out of the wealthy more than deflation does. Compared to that a revolution is a minor annoyance. Sorry, no cabal can be that smart and at the same time allow wingnuts like Greenspan, Frank, Dodd, Cox, Paulson and Bernanke run amok for this long. Oh, and what did Brown run in the U.K. before becoming Prime Minister?
