Just finished watching the James Bond movie, ‘Quantum of Solace’. Must say it is an excellent movie, almost no humor in it which makes it the most un-Bond movie of the series but better story wise than the usual Bond fare. It has the usual car chases, big explosions, exotic locales, although Haiti does not exactly qualify as exotic, and neither does Bolivia but it does showcase the Italian countryside rather well. This movie is almost too cerebral for a Bond film and in this regard it requires a viewer’s undivided attention to follow the story. Those of us who understand the ‘conspiracy’ angle of world politics and finance will truly enjoy this Bond offering. What I found interesting about the film is that it reveals quite clearly the role that intelligence agencies play in our world. As the story develops, an informed viewer soon comes to realize that intelligence agents are not really working to make the world safer; on the contrary they are the one most likely to be the ones that foment revolutions, topple governments, put in power brutal dictators and puppet regimes, And why might they do such things that are detrimental, to put it mildly, to the welfare, prosperity and peace of any nation? What do the real life Bonds get out of bringing misery and crushing poverty to billions across the globe? Even now they are operating in every country, in Africa, South America, Asia, and elsewhere-ensuring trade does not stop, even though this trade is not favorable to most of the poorer countries of the world. Most third world countries would be much better off developing their own resources and using them for their own benefit rather than being used as slave labor in their own countries, and then giving away their precious God given resources to powerful and richer nations at a fraction of their market value.
Although in the movie Bond is supposedly fighting the bad corporate guy who represents some mysterious but ultra powerful organization called ‘Quantum’, in reality observing the role played by the CIA (Corporate Intelligence Agency) man, and carefully listening to the dialogue between ‘M’ and her boss it becomes apparent that the function of these secret agents is to develop trade for their bosses, who obviously are the corporate elite, Wall Street, Zurich, The City of London and their counterparts. What also becomes obvious watching some of the amazing technology, especially in the field of communications is the seamless manner in which these ‘intelligence agencies’ operate; whether they are American or British or Canadian or Russian or Israeli, they all have access to each others data and co–operate fully with each other; there are no enemies in this fraternity, they are all one big happy family! And who is the real boss of the Americans, the Brits, the Canucks, the Ruskies, and any other nation powerful enough to have a real international intelligence operation? The answer is MAMMON, yes all these low level agents like Bond work for bosses who worship mammon, for whom the love of money is the reason for living and breathing, and these above all are the International banking elites. This Banking Royalty led by the Bank of International Settlements in Zurich, Switzerland, is the Hydra that controls corporations and governments through their stranglehold on International Finance. Unbeknownst to many, out of top 100 economies in the world, more than half are multinational corporations like Walmart, Apple, Exxon Mobil and others, but even more significant is the fact that banks, Central banks like the Fed and Commercial / Investment banks like JP Morgan and HSBC control way more money than the annual GDP of almost all nations. Where there is money, there is power and there are secret agents, like Bond, James Bond DOUBLE O SEVEN with all the money and girls a guy can want.
The question is who do the real world Bonds work for? The question was actually answered by Ian Fleming himself in the title of one of his books, ‘On Her Majesty’s Secret Service’; Commander Bond and his ilk work for the so–called Royalty of this world, they work for the rich and powerful, for the elites, for bankers, corporate heads, and heads of State. They are serving their masters, the queens, presidents and CEO’s of this world. This is the real reason why there is such a close relationship between Wall Street and the CIA, a number of CIA directors have come from Wall Street including Daddy Bush. The CIA and similar agencies of which there are only a half dozen or so worldwide on a James Bond level, are all CORPORATE INTELLIGENCE Agencies; their # 1 mission is Corporate Espionage; it was recently revealed that the NSA is actively engaged in such activity on behalf of their corporate bosses. The MI-5 and MI-6 also have close ties to the city of London, the other financial capital of the world besides New York and Zurich. It is the job of these agents to do whatever is necessary to protect the profitability of their corporate bosses. The real activity of such agents as 007 James Bond is revealed to a certain extent in some movies like Quantum of Solace and White Sands with Mickey Rourke. The following is brief review of Quantum of Solace that is a very entertaining movie because it delves into real life activities of the wealthy elite and their servants, the secret agents.
The movie is mainly set in Bolivia and the story deals with the real life issue of the exploitation of the resources of the nation of Bolivia, especially their water. This problem with an artificially created shortage of water has in fact left a large percentage of the Bolivian population impoverished. In one symbolic scene Bond is walking across a small Bolivian village in which the village square is a graveyard with dozens of recent graves with plain old sticks and tree branches stuck in the ground as crosses to mark the graves. The villain in the movie is a ‘philanthropist’ businessman named Bill Gates, well not really but he is a nerdy businessman type named Greene with an organization named Greene Planet. O how he loves the planet but sadly not the inhabitants of the planet, just the resources. To get access to the resources of, say a small to mid size nation, Mr. Greene is quite willing to spread a little green around, and paint a few towns red, literally by starting a coup here, a revolution there, and before you know it he has a puppet ‘El Presidente’ in power who is more than willing to let Mr. Greene buy and sell whatever part of his country he chooses. Here’s a sample dialogue from the movie: “As of now we own 60% of Bolivia’s water supply (contractual agreement for putting a man in power and overthrowing the current Govt.) But you should know something about me and the people I work with. We deal with the left or the right, with dictators or liberators. If the current president had been more agreeable I wouldn’t be talking to you.” In the movie he encourages the ‘General’ that he was promoting to President to double the rates that the people would pay for their own water, and let’s say the encouragement was not very subtle. Most people watching will fail to see the facts in this fiction but I truly enjoyed the film even though it had some extreme violence in it. Once again the facts of life in this world are often stranger than any Hollywood fiction but sometimes Hollywood does reveal certain facts that reveal the true state of how this world really works. Quatum of Solace is one such movie as is another movie from a few years back title ‘The International’.
This is the real truth about James Bond and the intelligence business; first and foremost it is a business, in business, for business. The rich men of the earth, who control the wealth of nations from the shadows, control these agencies and their agents. Like the original merchant prince, Satan, these modern day merchant bankers want money, money, and more money even though they have all the money in the world through their control of central banks of the world. But like their god Satan who was burnt up by his burning desire for merchandise and trafficking, for trading and commerce, for buying and selling; these worshipers of mammon will also be burnt to cinders by their insatiable love for money that causes them to bring death and misery to untold billions across the globe. Their days to weep and howl draw ever closer and no Bond, James Bond, Double O Seven will be able to save them from the wrath of Almighty God.
