Yes, it is important to determine the question of who are the families of the sovereign money power that established the Empire of the City of London Corporation on its Joint Stock Co. of the Bank of England 1694. ( If only because all 193 UN member nations are today owned as corporate assets of their central banking cartel ). All of that is back on another post.
For me, this post from the part time Philospher opens up the more important question of : the Australians in heritage and founding stock. This nation of distinct Celtic, English, Scottish and Danish people which , as a population, became the founding stock of the Australian state from its beginnings in the UK penal colony of Botany Bay in the arrival of the First Fleet: 20 Jan 1788 . Who are these people established as convicts on this continent under the Admiralty Law of the UK and what became the British Empire.
The event of the transport occurred in the distinct time frame of English history when the Westminster system of law and government laid by St Edward the Confessor in the 10th century had entered into its mortal conflict with the sovereign money power based in The City of London Corporation. And even then, the older system was being extinguished. Even so, even at the end with all institutions entirely subverted, the last defenses of Westminster would prove very strong as we have seen in the last century and our own day.
Forget ideas about cutting the swell in the well known Old Bailey and stealing the loaf of bread and go back to the War of the Succession also called the War of the Three Kingdoms 1688 – 1746 (Culloden) – and its antecedent the English Civil War 1642 / Irish Confederate Wars 1641-1657. That is when Regime Change occurred in the nations I am talking about.
And here is the focus. Every nation (if it is a nation) and without exception has its own natural and spiritual aristocracy. This distinct group is not necessarily the king or the state or the nobility with position and title or whatever. But there are times in history when the events of the times will select for that particular group and cause them to stand and be recognized across all classes. Even centuries later in the pages of history written by their enemies they can be identified and seen for exactly who they are: the strongest bloodstock of the nation, the most based in their culture, law and traditions – especially their faith, the most resilient and determined against the foes of their nation, the most adaptable and canny. If their nation is defeated in war and their foes take possession by right of conquest – they are going to be the most ungovernable and hostile to the new regime.
These people are the natural aristocracy of the nation, any nation.
So in the War of the Succession, when usury became the basis of the economy and the Bank of England created a whole new landlord class with new fangled title deeds, the Commons of the new estates were closed (again) by Act of Parliament. The English who have been living in their parishes on those estates since the time of the Roman Empire were being impressed into the Navy or herded into the industrial slums or the collieries of the UK. But among them , there remained that distinct group of English who didn’t exactly accept the terms of the Parliamentarian surrender of 1688 and resisted the new normal by every means. They closed down sweatshops and fortified the shambles against the impressment gangs. Then there were the Irish – the whole nation under penal law – a tax on all lands, even every tool and implement of trade, even every window of every house. The wearing of the Green was illegal – a hanging offense.
Again, most people are going to do what they have to do to survive. But from among them, another and quite distinct group is also apparent. This is the group which goes their hangings singing rowdy songs wearing the Green, they organise themselves to seize the tax monies from the new landlord class and they continue to oppose the new regime. They haven’t surrendered either . And up in Scotland the story is pretty much the same. It matters not a jot that the Scottish Convention of Estates is now part of the UK and the Highlands are supposed to be surrendered after Culloden – where the Clans fought with no quarter. But for the government, the problem with the Highlands continued. In order to pasture the Cheviot sheep, the new UK landlord class had to clear the Highlands of its parishes and villages by fire, musket and sword. Inevitably they came into conflict with that distinct and particular group which makes it their responsibility to insure this is no easy matter for King Willie’s muskets. They ambush them in the bye-ways, kill the cheviots and generally make life hell for the new landlord class and their titles.
Thus, the natural aristocracy of England, Ireland, Britain and Scotland – bloodied but unbowed after the War of the Succession. What solution to the problem of the natural aristocracy of these nations might the UK have hit upon ?
