Iceland – Example for a new American Revolution

Daniel Martin Gray

…Let’s start with a banking crisis like 2008, caused by greedheads in government and breathtaking risktakers in multinational megacorporations. Assume it was entirely intended, in order to cause critical consequences and cement even more power and money in the hands of elites.

Say that nationalizing industry and the banking system is fine, like our media and both major parties did. Play down the essential bankrupting of government by buying our own securities and monetizing the debt. Assume that government passed sweeping bailouts for banks “too big to fail”. Ramped up “benefit” payments to a populace thrown headlong from a workforce that deserted them, in order to drain their power and hook them on government largesse.

Posit a peaceful movement to undo the damage, that called bailouts a failure; called for jailing the ones who caused the mess in the first place. Sounds a lot like our own Occupy and Tea Party movements.

Picture a people so fed up they throw out a large percentage of incumbents, sending new faces pledged to serve freedom and fiscal restraint to the seats of power. America did this, too, spurning Democrats and RINOs in Congress and State governments in 2010…

…What if they arrested, prosecuted and jailed the bankers whose actions caused the crisis, instead of rewarding them with fat paydays? What if their actions, entirely peaceful, restored liberty and fiscal sanity to their country?…

…There is a reason the elites don’t want you to know. They would have you ignorant of the example. They like things the way they are. We don’t. And here in America, we have no need to rewrite a new Constitution. Our old one would work fine, if we but followed it…

…As Iceland struggles to regain its footing with a new government, U.S. citizens may or may not be able to look to Iceland as an example of perfect democracy in action. The real question, though, is why weren’t U.S. citizens given the information about the ousting of the Icelandic government and the jailing of the unscrupulous bankers? Are journalists in control of the mainstream media or is there some truth to accusations that big business may, in fact, be strong-arming reporters to keep quiet about world events that could inspire similar actions here in the U.S.?
