Apocalypsta looked at the paper he’d just been sent. Chicago-style, that’s the ticket…

It should be pretty clear by now to anyone who is paying attention that governments do not act in the best interests of their citizens unless forced to do so.
No U.S. bankers in jail despite massive fraud in many areas…
We indict teachers in Atlanta for cheating 10s of thousands but ignore hundreds of millions when it’s bankers doing the taking.
The EU attempting to steal the deposits of Cyprus citizens to pay for the sins of the E.U. bankers who lent money.
What to do? What to do?
It’s clear that world citizens are going to have to take matters into their own hands. Guns and violence won’t work as that’s the game the system is expecting, they control the armies, and violence gets people killed. Besides, there’s no need for that.
We can, instead, use the very mechanisms of finance to unravel the whole mess. A highly levered system already made fragile by prior crises is vulnerable in many ways that can be exploited directly and profitably.
But wait, some might say. Do we dare risk it?
Bet your fucking ass we do. The banks of the U.S. and Europe have been bankrupt since the crisis started. Governments have been taking money from taxpayers the world over to prop the system up and it’s not working.
The system is coming down. And in a very unpredictable fashion.
But if we act quickly and together we can bring it down quickly in a controlled fashion and in such a way that people are not harmed. Left to their own devices, governments will support the banks until they can’t anymore. And then all hell will break loose.
Hyperinflation? Massive depression? Propping up an unstable system and papering over problems never ends well. It won’t this time either.
Or we can put these filthy whores out of their misery.
So we will start a trading war. Chicago Style against New York Greed.
Chicago-style individual traders worldwide against the New York big banks.
The world of the many against the world of the few.
The key will be to work together to identify weaknesses, exploit them in a very distributed fashion, sell short the bad companies, use the profits to buy up the good companies, and shift global assets back into much wider distribution.
Now this probably sounds crazy to a lot of you. And in a certain sense, it is crazy. But it will work.
We are going to have to beat the banksters at their own game.
That’s not as hard as it sounds because “traders” in banks suck at trading. What they call trading is generally just stealing from clients. They don’t know how to speculate. They don’t understand risk. And they don’t understand contagion.
And the world over, people hate them, and would love to have a chance at payback.
The key is to align the interests of the Chicago-style trading group with the interests of people worldwide who are in a position to effect the economic interests which underly those trading instruments. For instance, copper miners the world over have a direct potential influence on the price of copper. Industrial workers have an influence on the companies they work for. Etc.
Let’s just look at one example how this could work. If some significant portion of the mortgage holders in Spain, instead of paying this coming month’s mortgage, used that money to open a brokerage account in the U.S., pooling their money with friends if necessary. And then sold the Euro short and purchased put options against the fall of the banks stocks, they will make money if enough of them take action at the same time. And they will make money to offset the damage to the Euro.
Now this has to be done very carefully. All at once and slowly is the best result. If you enter the dragon’s lair you must slay him or let him sleep. Once you plunge the blade, you better play to win.
The strategy should follow the three stage commit protocol:
Ready – Count commitments and assess resources while developing alternate strategies for various eventualities. Train for flexibility. Train for expecting the unexpected. Train to win
Set – Confirm all participants and the chosen routes. Stay up on normal channels and act as if nothing is happening while using weak-link channels to confirm the go signal and timing.
Go – Full autonomous operational control granted to all parts. Go go go. Bankrupture the fat basturds
Turtle Island release the Manhattan sphincter,
go Brooklyn, go Jersey, go Islands, go Bronx…
go Brooklyn, go Jersey, go Islands, go Bronx…
cheers away friends and
do sewer rats launch
