Social Capital is Best Store of Wealth

( There is nothing fancy or magical about the "House of Rockefeller" left. It is a family business.)
A proliferation of openly Christian and ethical fraternal organizations, beginning with a family business, would be the sociological equivalent of free energy.
Social capital and multiple streams of income, not home ownership or "precious" metals, is how the elites have built inter-generational wealth and attendant political influence.
by Abe "in East LA"
I have a follow up to "Goldbugs Can Expect More Losses." Many comments asked: "If the metals aren't a good investment at present, where they should put their money?" I would suggest that they do what the elites do - build social capital and then start a business.
Social capital is the ONLY true wealth. It is the ability to get cooperation from others. That's why money works: it facilitates third party cooperation. Any money invested in learning a new language, carpentry, (real) masonry, or gardening will have a better ROI than Gold or the Dow.
Social capital is THE TRUE SECRET to illuminati-masonic-judaic-secret society power: Really, it's just simple social capital, i.e. having enough people on the same page to get things done. We should all cultivate it for ourselves as well. A proliferation of openly Christian and ethical fraternal organizations would be the sociological equivalent of free energy.
As for businesses, an LLC corporation can be formed on the cheap in most states, and is only $800 in the most expensive (CA). Just have "consulting" be your business and have your friends and family be your "customers".
With a business of your own, you can have all your productive and collectible assets passed on to the next generation without an estate tax since no one is inheriting property but merely being placed in charge of the business' next generation of leadership. Thus, there is no tax on giving your son a job managing the family assets.
Social capital and multiple streams of income, not home ownership or "precious" metals, is how the elites have built the inter generational wealth and attendant political influence that allowed them to monopolize the economic gains from increased productivity and technology. We could all make use of these simple secrets to start leveling the playing field.
Corroboration can be found in the dynastic wealth that presently controls the world. Instead of making this case at length, I would point readers to four books on the history of money: Babylon's Banksters by Joseph P. Farrell; The Secrets of the Federal Reserve by Eustace Mullins; The Grim Reaper by J. W. McCallister, and Confessions of an Economic Hitman by John Perkins. The gist is that all the secret societies serve central banking interests; and central banking is indeed a family affair WHICH is best summarized from the following quote taken from Dean Henderson's article "The Federal Reserve Cartel: Part 1: The Eight Families -
"80% ownership of the New York Federal Reserve Bank- by far the most powerful Fed branch- by just eight families, four of which reside in the US. They are the Goldman Sachs, Rockefellers, Lehmans and Kuhn Loebs of New York; the Rothschilds of Paris and London; the Warburgs of Hamburg; the Lazards of Paris; and the Israel Moses Seifs of Rome.
.... Ten banks control all twelve Federal Reserve Bank branches. He names N.M. Rothschild of London, Rothschild Bank of Berlin, Warburg Bank of Hamburg, Warburg Bank of Amsterdam, Lehman Brothers of New York, Lazard Brothers of Paris, Kuhn Loeb Bank of New York, Israel Moses Seif Bank of Italy, Goldman Sachs of New York and JP Morgan Chase Bank of New York. Schauf lists William Rockefeller, Paul Warburg, Jacob Schiff and James Stillman as individuals who own large shares of the Fed. The Schiffs are insiders at Kuhn Loeb. The Stillmans are Citigroup insiders, who married into the Rockefeller clan at the turn of the century."
A FAMILY BUSINESS
Another forceful image of the power of social capital and extended families in action can be seen in the Rockefeller family portrait featured in the article by Olavo de Carvalho on this website:
Very few of the Rockefellers seen in the above photo will inherit anything, but they will administer one of the many corporations or subsidiaries that belong to the House of Rockefeller.
There nothing fancy or magical about the "House of Windsor" or the "House of Rothschild" or anything else. This kind of self- appellation doesn't use metaphysics to confer elite status. It is a simple way of denoting a family business. Imagine if entire nations were filled with such interconnected, networked, God loving, pro family, and racially conscious folks.
There would be no poverty or alienation. In every neighborhood, ordinary folks of acquired means and ability like the "House of Smith"and the "House of Jones" would serve the same function as Chinese Benevolent Societies - which is a prime factor in Asian economic mobility in the West.
Even in "the hood," newly established families like the "House of Garcia" or the "House of Jamal" could serve the same functions and provide avenues to social modernization for races and communities left behind.
We don't need to redistribute wealth, we need to let people create it by taking charge of their families, society, and future. It starts with the simple realization that no man is an island and that no investment will allow you to win this fight single handedly.
Note: I asked Abe if he was practicing what he preaches. His reply:
I've just recently purchased some rural land in a part of California that will remain undisclosed. The land is in fact a carefully selected network of inexpensive properties that, once developed, support one another and will require the active input of multiple families working as a team to keep things running. I am in the preliminary process of developing that land with a network of extended family and close friends. All of this will be managed under a corporate entity in which each family will own a share of the issued stock. To elaborate a bit, one of the properties will be farmed responsibly, one will have a small grocery store, one a specialty shop, and some will provide lodging income. I hope in time to build something able to rival In-N-Out burgers or Chik-fil-A in size, scope, and civic engagement. I also want to stress that the social capital acquired through one's familial and/or fraternal network needn't be limited to gardening and other arts and crafts, see this video about 3-D gun printing.

Am I missing something here?
This basic concept of social capital is all fine and well, one sorely needed starting on a grassroots level. The author even envisions eventually rivalling, e.g.; Chik-fil-a in "size, scope and civil engagement."
But the thing I see lacking has to do with the currency. What good is it if what you're building with the intent of beating them at their own game uses THEIR money, and subject to THEIR rules?
Any comprehensive grassroots operation along these lines must also include the introduction of alternative, regional currencies if it's going to have any potential snowball effect in making the present money power irrelevant.
The reality is that before you can offer an alternative to the current currency regime one needs the prerequisite influence, which requires wealth and a large base of support.
I agree with you on the need to end usury and fractional rerserve fraud, but either way you slice it we can get more done with more at our disposal. A large group of family(ies) and trusted friends can pool the fiat necessary to start something without debt financing and even if the venture fails, at least the group will still own the capital assests invested initially and purchased along the way. Also, once a network of support is up and running you can easily just CREATE YOUR OWN currency.
That's right, just issue notes of credit redeemable for the goods and/or services provided by one of your ventures to other local businesses that can do the same. And with enough contacts in the community you can find any number of others who will participate in your micro economy, BUT you will need a substantial base of pre-existing wealth and social capital first - hence the need for a successful non debt-financed family business, preferably with more than one source of revenue. The methods I'm speaking of work because I've seen them in action not only in the ruling elites but with my own father and his before him who managed to build large enterprises off of the land and trade at a time when Mexicans and Indians were severely discriminated against in this country. One of the only useful things my father told me, and his father told him, is that "If they wont give you a job then make your own damn job." Similarly, if you want an alternate currency, then go make something of yourself and then start your own damn micro-economy. You can avoid counterfeiting charges, like the kind the feds used against this guy (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yqpN0sRlpSg) by applying your notes to barter laws, paying the relevant taxes, and personally confirming each transaction made by third parties with your redeemable notes like your own personal bitcoin system.
Finally, I hope you checked out the video on Gun printing, here's one on ammo making (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rj7JwO28Wzo). Practicing either of these skills is a highly empowering and highly profitable form of male bonding for any familial or fraternal network you may have. Same with organic gardening: any of these skills is like making your own money given the fungibility of arms, ammo, and healthy food. Just be creative and stop whining.
