Gerald CelenteTo blow off ritualistic steam about our financial and political problems, watch Gerald Celente, like in this April 25, 2013 interview with Alex Jones, where he was in true form.

Immediately following the September 2008 U.S. and global financial meltdown, Gerald Celente was a welcome voice in the wilderness of those who understood the failed policies of the banking elite, and could articulate them in a captivating way. The problem is, he’s been repeating the same talking points ever since.

Hardly an interview goes by when he doesn’t blast the same old “white shoe boys,” and telling us for the zillionth time, incorrectly mind you, that Mussolini knew something about fascism, and that it’s the merger of government and corporations. That, despite Italian speaker, Webster Tarpley, pointing out that Mussolini said no such thing, and that the word Mussolini used — corporazione — referred to guilds, where owners took personal responsibility, as opposed to modern corporations , where directors have unlimited liability, except for very, very rare circumstances where the “corporate veil” is pierced.

And, as George Whitehurst-Berry has stated, whatever fascism is or isn’t, it is intensely nationalistic. Conversely, what we are seeing these days is intensely internationalistic, and therefore fails the fascism test, among other reasons.

For real solutions, watch serious monetary reformers, Wayne Walton and Tom J. Kennedy, and see my interviews with them here and here, respectively.

Whitehurst-Berry pointed out that members of guilds had full liability, whereas modern corporations have limited liability, whereby the private assets and actions of directors, executives and employees of the company are normally immune from civil suits. This is in direct contrast to guilds whereby guild members were personally responsible and liable for their work.

This was reinforced on March 27, 2010, by political and economics analyst, Webster Tarpley, host of “World Crisis Radio,” who is fluent in Italian.

In the second segment of the first hour of the show, he said, “Corporate does not mean corporation in the modern sense of a joint stock company, it means a medieval guild. And a guild, the idea that the ownership and the workers are inextricably linked.
