Money is what makes the world go round. Or is it? ‘Timothy 6:10 – For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil’. Economy, politics, societies, life, culture and just about everything seems to rely on the money in this modern age. However, there are countless people on this planet abusing the the current banking system. I’d like to talk about a certain family named the ‘Rothschild’ and central banks and how they manipulate key segments of our everyday lives. This is off topic to the usual posts on DR but it is a talking point I wish to share with all of you!
The ‘Rothschild’ family own so many central banks across the world there was only a staggering 7 central banks left by the year 2000! These countries were:
- North Korea
Look at this list, and consider what is happening OR has happened OR may happen in the future and piece together what they all have in common.
In 2013, there are only 3 remaining countries not under the influence of the ‘Rothschild’ family’s money. These are as listed:
- North Korea
Central banks are the saviours of the ‘big’ banks such as the Federal Reserve and the Bank of England. How? Central banks are privately owned banks in which are used to bail out countries in certain economic crisis. The central banks do this because they benefit from the interest rates they charge the ‘big’ banks and therefore leaving the ‘big’ banks in ongoing debts to them. This sort of power gives the private central banks the chance to manipulate the markets, the prices of gold and so forth. In affect controlling many countries economically and politically. Every single dollar you have in your pocket will have a certain amount of debt to its name and to the central bank it came from. The central bankers are at the top of the pyramid, above the law and even above government powers. Now imagine.. all these central banks… above all governments… it is certainly a scary scenario.
How central banks (Rothschild) effect politics.
Politically central banks can control the amount of money flowing in to that country. In addition this will limit the government of that country to how much they can spend. This may force new legislations and taxes on the people and societies of that country to maintain the status quo between the government, the ‘big’ banks and the central banks. This will effect people from all walks of life. In past Greece hit a huge recession and has been forced to make new and increased taxation to help the country to survive the economic collapse it had endured the past year (Research Greece economic collapse). So think of a pyramid where the central banks are the top, and we, the people, are the bottom. Banking seems to run from the very very top, to the very very bottom.
You wonder why you haven’t heard of ‘Central banks’ ‘Rothschild family’? Its simple. follow the money. Many of the Mainstream media news agencies are owned or in co-operations with the governments. Who’s above the governments? There you go, its like a puzzle, you’ve just got to put the pieces together! If you wish to find out more about central banking, private banking, the Rothschild family and how they are so influential just research the internet, you can find it almost anywhere on the net.
This is just a simple explanation and introduction on who the ‘Rothschild’ family are and how their many central banks are increasingly influential on global economy. If you wish to find out more on this topic, here are a couple of links to videos in which may have more in depth explanations on Central banks and the ‘Rothschild’ family.

“Do you know what lies in the Holy Land? A new world. A man who, in France, had not a house, is in the Holy Land, the master of a city. He who was the master of the city begs in the gutter. There at the end of the world, you are not what you are born, but what you have it in yourself to be” (transcript from Kingdom of Heaven 2005). Jerusalem is a place of wonder, history, controversy, bloodshed and beauty. Lets explore this sacred city.
Jerusalem is home to a staggering 804,000 people, 62% of which are Jewish, 35% Muslim, 2% Christian and 1% whom are not classified by religion. (2011 Jerusalem institute for Israel studies.) How did this blistering city become home to such a multi-ethnic and multi-cultural society?
Going back 3000 years, Jerusalem was occupied by the Israelites and King David. King David proclaimed the city as his and the Israelites capital. Since that day Jerusalem has thrived with Judaism throughout the ages. Certain Jewish sites to visit in Jerusalem consist of: the ‘Temple Mount’, the ‘Western Wall’, the ‘Mount of Olives’ and the ‘Hurva synagogue’.

Jerusalem is also a significant holy site to many Muslims although Mecca is regarded as the holiest city of Islam. The city is important to Muslims as it is home to ‘Masjid-al Aqsa’ and the ‘Dome of the Rock’. Muslims believe 1400 years ago the prophet Muhammad travelled to the ‘Farthest Mosque’ in one night and met with other prophets including Jesus. It is believed that the prophet Muhammad ascended to heaven at the place where the ‘Masjid al-Aqsa’ is now built. Many years later the ‘Dome of the Rock’ was built and is now part of ‘Masjid al-Aqsa’. Both of this holy sites are on top of the ‘Temple Mount’. Very confusing I know, it took me a while to grasp this concept too.
^ (the ‘Dome of the Rock’)
As a Christian I believe the importance of Jerusalem is paramount to all Christians. The Holy Land is said to be the where Jesus spent a large proportion of his life. Jesus preached and healed within the walls of Jerusalem. Jesus was crucified in Jerusalem. Jesus had his final meal in Jerusalem(the Last Supper.) The list goes on and on! There are many Christian holy sites in Jerusalem which are significant to the Christian belief. In Jerusalem there are symbolic holy sites for Christians. The ‘Church of the Holy Sepulchre’ is believed to be the place of the crucifixion of Jesus and also the place of burial. Some disclaim this and believe the burial and crucifixion are some place else in the capital. Another holy site would be the ‘Cenacle’. The ‘Cenacle’ is located on ‘Mount Zion’ and Christian belief tell is this is the place of the ‘Last Supper’. Finally the ‘Via Dolorosa’ which is one of my favourites, is the road upon which Jesus walked and carried the cross to Golgotha (Holy Sepulchre) to be crucified.

Jerusalem is a place of miracles, beauty and is an awe inspiring sight for every kind of religious follower. No matter what belief you follow there will always be a place for you in the Holy Land. We should pilgrimage to Jerusalem, it is a once in a lifetime opportunity that we all should not bypass. I beg of you to visit this elegant spectacle before it is to late.
If you either live in Jerusalem or have visited this magnificent place I’d love to hear your stories. Please, feel free to comment below or email me personally (firstname.lastname@example.org) your wonderful story on this divine city.
For the deep thinkers, my list of the best philosophical posts of the year.
The top 10, in order:
1. Because the Universe Is Happening to You by Julian Barnes
This excerpt is pulled from Barnes’s Nothing to Be Frightened Of, which was probably the most potent book I picked up this year. Barnes’s writing is as cogent as I’ve ever read — the product a voice that quivers with intensity but never stutters or misses a word. This particular section complements well the reflection below from Pollack, and was also part of the inspiration for my speech ‘College, Life’.
2. Define ‘Life’ by Dr. Robert Pollack
Spoken at the Philoctetes panel on Origin, Evolution, and the Future of Life on Earth, Pollack’s opening answer to the prompt “Define ‘Life'” is powerful because it integrates three concepts which are rarely synthesized into the same worldview: a religious impulse…

What is free will? Do we the people have free will?
Firstly we need to contemplate what even is free will. Is it freedom? No, not really, free will is what a person chooses to do without any influences from other people or even external objects or beings. Although this definition could be linked with freedom there are certain differences such as freedom can only be provided by ones family, society or country. There are many different religious views on free will in Christianity and we’re going to explore these certain Christian denominations and their views on free will.
Personally, I believe we all have free will. However, we must not abuse this gift! “1 Peter 2:16 – Live as people who are free, not using your freedom as a cover-up for evil but living as servants of God”. This quote completely enthrals and inspires me. Why? Because it shows guidance and wisdom. We use free will everyday of our lives as we make choices everyday! You made a choice to read this blog post for example. One choice can determine the next choice! Its a scary thought, I know. So how do we abuse our free will? Choosing materialistic objects of this world and being ruled by temptation and desire. Materialistic objects could mean anything from guns to the dollar note in your pocket. “1 Timothy 6:10 – For the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil”. Now temptation and desire are very broad words. For me, the meanings in this context are about addiction, crime, greediness and selfishness. I’m sure we all have been tempted into either taking addictive substance which range from tobacco to cocaine to even pornography and I’m sure many of us already have!
In Christianity many denominations have different views on free will but here I’d like to discuss Lutheranism, a protestant form of Christianity and also a Catholic viewpoint on free will. To begin with we’ll start with Lutheranism. Lutherans believe in the original sin. This is a theory in which Adam’s temptation to sin and eat the forbidden fruit has infected us all. No matter if we choose to use our free will wisely and respectably, Lutherans believe every human thought and deed is infected with sin and sinful motives. It seems Lutherans believe all of us have inherited sinful desires from Adam and we are slaves to our own sinful nature.
However, Catholics believe differently. Catholics believe the more good one does in the world the more freer they will become. Catholics believe that through reason and will they will find the power of freedom. A common phrase used by the Catholic church is “Freedom is the power, rooted in reason and will”. Although the different theories from the two denominations , both Lutherans and Catholics believe that salvation come solemnly from God.
Finally I’d like to ask, what theory do you believe? Whether it is an entirely different concept to the two listed here I’d love to know. All are welcome to comment their views or even contact me personally via email.
