What was the earlier Unholy Trinity?
Mostly for my own thinking....
When globalism restarted in 1946,
it linked three main sources of power, and this Unholy Trinity continues today. Investment banks, intel agencies, and leftist organizations. At the start it was Bernard Baruch, OSS, and mainly Communist orgs.
Along the way most of the banking class has been involved in Leg 1 of the Tripod. Soros is the visible sharp edge in recent decades.
In Leg 2, OSS changed to CIA and then branched out to subagencies like Natl Endowment for "Democracy".
In Leg 3, leftist groups have gradually shifted from Marxist to "Christian". WCC, Episcopal, Rome.
Question: What was the alliance in globalism's earlier incarnation from 1898 to 1929? Bankers are always globalists, so that's a constant. But we didn't have a proper OSS or CIA until WW2, and we didn't have the same network of Quangos on the left. Revolutionaries were stubbornly independent. The only common point I can see is the Red Cross, which served globalist purposes under Herbert Hoover.
Later: Seeing bankers as the constant provides the answer. The other legs of the tripod are incidental tools and weapons for the bankers, not necessary pieces of the globalist machine.
What's the solution?
Complete removal of banks isn't practical or helpful. Banks have a proper and natural international purpose. They make trade and credit possible by exchanging currency smoothly.
Restricting the currently infinite POWER of banks IS possible, as FDR showed. Pure numbers can be infinite. Real STUFF and real SERVICES are finite. Go back to FDR. Eliminate the parts of banking that don't depend on real concrete value. Restrict derivatives and futures to actual contracts for actual future DELIVERY of actual STUFF. Eliminate all abstract bets. Eliminate fractional reserve, restore something like the gold standard.
