Ron Holland on Resisting the NWO and Restoring the American Dream
Interview by Anthony Wile
The Daily Bell is pleased to present an exclusive interview with Ron Holland.
Introduction: Ron Holland is the author of three books, numerous special reports and hundreds of articles on investment and political topics, many of which focus on the interplay between politics and the investment markets. Selections of his essays can be found in the archives of LewRockwell.com and TheDailyBell.com. He also has participated actively in the development of innovative financial structures, including the first Swiss franc annuity licensed for sale in the U.S. Originally from North Carolina, he lived and worked in Geneva, Switzerland from 2003 to 2004. He currently divides his time between the U.S. and Europe. He currently is Chief Editor of Freedom Matters, a contributing editor to several newsletters dealing with political and investing topics, a member of the Advisory Board of Zurich-based BFI-Consulting and Chairman of the Advisory Board of The Foundation for the Advancement of Free-Market Thinking. He speaks frequently at financial, professional and political conferences in the North and South America, Europe and the Middle East. In his writing and conference presentations, Ron Holland emphatically advocates global investment diversification into foreign currencies and non-U.S. markets as essential for protection from the U.S. government’s growing debt.
Daily Bell: Thank you Ron for taking time to sit down with us today. You’ve contributed to the Daily Bell for some time. Why did you make it a chosen platform?
Ron Holland: Although I have spent my entire working career in finance and investments, my real passion has been studying history as I am an information junkie. I always try to determine the truth of a situation rather than accept the usual whitewash fairy tale presented by government-funded historians to the general public. I started with World War II as a teenager and worked back to the First World War, the Civil War that actually wasn’t a Civil War at all and finally back to the founding of America.
Thirteen years ago, a few weeks after the birth of my youngest daughter Heidi, I had to attend a financial conference at Oxford University in England and there I met a person who enlightened me about older European history going all the way back to the crusades. I came back home with a suitcase full of books and information and eventually I recognized a connection and hidden theme running throughout history in Europe and America which I kept to myself until I discovered the Daily Bell.
Since then I have primarily studied older history from the reformation and enlightenment back through the Templar period, the crusades and all the way back to the birth of Christianity back to the first civilization in Sumer where Iraq is today.
The Daily Bell is correct about an Anglo-American group of sometimes competing wealthy elites that have used the world as their chessboard and the wealth and lives of millions to generate more wealth and profits for them at our expense. The Middle East problems today, two world wars and the Cold War, the great depression and I fear a greater depression today and the end of debt-based regulatory democracy-style governments have all been responses to their actions. The establishment news and historians are attempts at collateral damage control to cover-up the mess these elites have made while accumulating more wealth.
The Daily Bell attempts as far as I can tell to connect the dots and hidden history between financial elites and their actions to amass more wealth from productive people around the world. Today, the Internet has opened the door to the truth for those who desire to understand the world around them and not a minute too soon.
I fear, we are approaching a period like World War One and the aftermath which will dramatically destroy and shift wealth, change governments and create wars and economic dislocation not seen since that time. We may have to live through a final Götterdämmerung of violence and economic dislocation as they make one last attempt to complete their plan of one-world government and rule.
Only massive crises and wars can create such fear that freedom-loving citizens will agree to give up their freedoms and wealth for security. The Daily Bell is right as only the Internet can by-pass the power of the establishment media to educate and prevent this from happening. The battle will be decided over the next decade one way or the other for future generations of Americans and Europeans as our prosperity is sacrificed for the greater wealth and rule of these elites. The Daily Bell is the only major Internet news site dedicated to the publication and explanation of these actions and this is why I’m proud to be personally involved.
Daily Bell: You contribute to LewRockwell.com. What do you think of what they have accomplished in terms of bringing Mises back – and encouraging free-market literacy generally? We think it’s a great accomplishment.
Ron Holland: I have known and followed Lew Rockwell for well over two decades and he and Ron Paul are the only two leaders in the freedom movement who have never compromised their integrity and beliefs for short-term gain or public acceptance. This was so apparent following the super-patriotism and war fever following the 9/11 attacks.
