The International: "Control the Debt, and Control Everything"
Also, note that conflict produces debt...which then allows you to be controlled. The U.S. is falling into that trap now. We're not accurately distinguishing the emotional threats from the real ones.
DEBT, n. An ingenious substitute for the chain and whip of the slave-driver. - Ambrose Bierce
As, pent in an aquarium, the troutlet
Swims round and round his tank to find an outlet,
Pressing his nose against the glass that holds him,
Nor ever sees the prison that enfolds him;
So the poor debtor, seeing naught around him,
Yet feels the narrow limits that impound him,
Grieves at his debt and studies to evade it,
And finds at last he might as well have paid it.
