Warning: Reading the following may be hazardous to your mental health. The material herein has caused readers to experience Cognitive Dissonance (CD). CD is the discomfort felt at the discrepancy between what you already know or believe, and new information or interpretation that contradicts a strongly held belief system – It’s that queasy feeling that rises in your gut and screams, I DON’T BELIEVE THAT! Because, if you accepted the new information, you would have to admit you been ”had,” or ”conned,” in this case into shopping for stuff to trash the planet.
The benefit of the new information is that the world around you will finally make sense. Hot, flat, and crowded Thomas L. Friedman will finally know what planet George W. Bush is on. Bush lost the war on terrorism and the war in Iraq, but is winning the war on the environment.
At this point, it is advantageous to consider the efforts of writer Andrew Hitchcock, author of The History of the House of Rothschild.:
"The Rothschilds have been in control of the world for a very long time, their tentacles reaching into many aspects of our daily lives, and are the hidden hand behind all the social cataclysms in history.”
The French and American Revolution, the Civil War, World Wars, the Industrial Revolution, the Federal Reserve and our consumer society. Rothschild policies include “total ruthlessness” and as Frederic Morton writes in the Preface to “The Rothschild’s,” “For the last one hundred and fifty years, the history of the House of Rothschild has been to an amazing degree the backstage history of Western Europe.... The overwhelming success of the Rothschild’s lay in their willingness to do what had to be done.”
What follows is the history that has been intentionally left out of our textbooks. The historical research by Toqueville, Chartier and Hitchcock if examined without prejudice supports a prima facie case that the House of Rothschild orchestrated the French and American Revolutions to create the middle class (consumers) for the purpose of trashing the planet.
Our last President Bush, connected to the House of Rothschild Global Financial Empire, was deadly serious when, after rejecting the global climate change targets of the July 2008 G8 summit, he said, "Goodbye, from the (then) world's biggest polluter." 
“Things do not happen. Things are made to happen.” John F. Kennedy
In the early 20th century historians (such as Charles Beard), looking for the social forces they thought controlled history, emphasized industrialization and urbanization. These were forces unleashed by the industrial revolution and the textile industry.  By the mid 20th century, attention turned to the broader concept of "modernization," which included industrialization, urbanization, psychological changes and changes in values. Eric Hobsbawm called "modernization” (Consumerism), "probably the most important event in human history.”
Consumerism Needs the Middle Class
If you were living in the 18th century looking for humans to consume the resources of the planet where would you find them?
Answer: 95-97percent of the population of Feudal Society. The “Third Estate” had potential consumers but first they would need to be “enlightened” with a philosophy and movement based on respect for the dignity of man, concern for his welfare, and the creation of favorable conditions for a just social life.
Men began to think government was not something kings exercised by divine right and then Maximilien Robespierre started the French Revolution. The order was given to Robespierre in book form by Rothschild’s agent Adam Weishaupt and his associate Xavier Zwack. 
At the beginning of the Revolution, Kings, Monarchs and the despots of our history books held supreme power; by the time it ended, the human rights movement replaced centuries of tyranny and oppression for the common man.
Is that possible?
Revisionists are still trying to explain why the despots of our history books wouldn’t use the Guillotine to dispense with such a heretical movement.
Roger Chartier writes in The Cultural Origins of The French Revolution, the popular notion that the Enlightenment caused the Revolution makes the mistake of post hoc ergo propter hoc - "after the fact, therefore because of the fact." Thus, Chartier and other historians claim it was the French Revolution that made the Enlightenment.
The Declaration of the Rights of Man is often seen as the quintessential Enlightenment document but the declaration called for a meritocratic social order, not an egalitarian one. Equality was conspicuously absent.
The revisionists are consistent in dismissing the Marxist interpretation, but without a 20th century perspective on environmental damage they have no systemic theory explaining the events in late 18th century France. Ecocide was a pivotal and necessary part of the Rothschild plan for a New World Order.
Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité
In the summer of 1789 when France rose up in revolt it wasn’t over intellectual, social or political issues; it was food. The country was in the midst of a famine caused by abnormal weather.
The common man was having trouble developing his natural talent and potential because he was hungry.
"The French Revolution will only be the darkness of night to those who see it in isolation; only the times which preceded it will give the light to illuminate it." The whole social edifice of Ancien Regime France collapsed at a single blow, and the fact that this was in the midst of one of the worst El Niño episodes of the millennium is something that should be taken into account when examining this history.”, de Tocqueville 1952, p. 249
September 11, 1814 should be examined as well. 
The rise of humanism and the social injustices in the 18th century did not create the revolutionary brew that saw the overthrow of the French monarchy. The House of Rothschild and the weather changed the course of history.
When the French government on the verge of bankruptcy from the seven years wars was unable to provide famine relief, public frustration erupted into violent demonstrations and the French Revolution.
Of course most despots would call for an inquisition and blame the peasants for the worst El Niño episode in history.
In 1795 when the people rebelled against a provision of the National Convention, Napoleon simply fired “a whiff of grape shot” into the mob, and the rebellion was over. 
Why did the House of Rothschild allow the revolution to succeed?
Answer: There were not enough consumers in the First and Second Estates in 18th century Feudal Society to weaken the planet.
The House of Rothschild Global Financial Empire
The vast accumulation of wealth, financial and natural resources of the House of Rothschild is legendary.
"And there was no news more precious than the (predetermined) outcome at Waterloo..."
Considered the turning point in history, exploiting the Battle of Waterloo gave the Rothschild family complete financial control of Europe, and soon after, the world. England would set up a new Bank of England, with Nathan Mayer Rothschild in control.
According to one source in the late 1800s, when the planet was still in ecological balance, "it was estimated the House of Rothschild controlled almost half the wealth of the world” 
That would be real wealth: raw materials, commodities, copper, iron ore, petroleum, lead, copper, silver and gold.
How much are they worth today?
Almost half of the world's fiat wealth about $500 trillion of the fiat currency (monopoly money) they created out of thin air to finance our consumer society. 
And their real wealth, where is it now?
Used up, as in consumed, by the middle class so former members of the Third Estate (serfs and slaves) could have houses, cars, RVs, TVs and DVDs—the affordable things we take for granted which put the planet on the bridge to Ecocide.
One of the more absurd notions that found its way into the history books and the writings of economic experts, is that somehow the International Bankers (swindlers and scoundrels of history) were made wealthier accumulating the monopoly money they printed.
The swindlers and scoundrels wealth, not yours or mine, was eventually “cut, mined and hauled away,” so that Americans could have that cheap stuff that is currently “trashing the planet”.
During the last 100 years those swindlers were able to distort the structure of relative prices; generate misallocations of labor and capital throughout the economy; rationalize new governmental interventions in the face of the market "instability" manipulate the patterns of and the profits from international trade which resulted in the Industrial Revolution, the Great Depression, the stagflation of the 1970’s, the dot-com and the housing market bubbles…which resulted in unprecedented prosperity for the middle class… and $500 trillion of monopoly money for the House of Rothschild.
Did Woodrow Wilson “ruin his country” when he signed The Federal Reserve Act of 1913 and made the middle class prosperous beyond precedent in the most powerful nation in the world?
Yes, because prosperous beyond precedent was unprecedented environmental damage for the planet.
Capitalism never made sense unless the goal was ecocide.
The ideal and the principle of the market economy of Capitalism was never fulfilled.
What is called capitalism is a distorted, twisted and deformed system of increasingly limited market relationships as well as market processes hampered and repressed by state controls and regulations. And overlaying this entire system are the ideologies of 18th-century mercantilism, 19th-century socialism, and 20th-century welfare statism.
Professor Ebeling, the Ludwig von Mises professor of Economics at Hillsdale College, understood something was wrong when he wrote: “the perverse development and evolution of historical capitalism, the institutions necessary for a truly free-market economy have been either undermined or prevented from emerging.”
But when he claimed, “it is the principles and the meaning of a free-market economy that must be rediscovered” in order to overcome the burden of historical capitalism and save liberty, He should have written principles must be rediscovered in order to save the planet from ecocide.
It didn’t matter if we listened to Keynes, Friedman or Mises; or for that matter anyone from the Rothschild-funded Austrian School of Economics, consumerism never made economic, environmental, or common sense. 
Even conscious consumers consume, as in use up the resources of the planet.
The American and French Revolutions made consumers out of 97% of the population who could now afford, thanks to those scoundrels behind the Federal Reserve, their own castle with all the furnishings and a two-car garage for their mobile pollution devices – the personal automobile. 
Let me repeat, since 1910 the House of Rothschild and the Rockefellers have exchanged their real wealth for 600 trillion of fiat currency (monopoly money) they printed so former members of the Third Estate (serfs and slaves) could have houses, cars, RVs, TVs and DVDs—the “stuff” which put the planet on the bridge to Ecocide.
The only thing dumber is when a poor person in the People’s Republic of China loans about $4,000 to everyone in the (rich) USA. 
Rockefeller philanthropy wasn’t limited to dimes.
 If “trashing the planet” was his military objective, our last President Bush was not stupid, but a brilliant commander-in-chief waging an all-out war on biodiversity, animals and rainforests. He wanted to drill in the ANWR to trash America’s last Arctic Wilderness. Sonar Testing is about torturing whales and dolphins. And the Border Fence that keeps everything out but illegal’s will disrupt an extraordinary source of biological diversity along the 2,000-mile long region.
 By 1850 the United States following the lead of England built their own industrial revolution around textiles. There arose a great demand for the one crop that does more damage to the environment than planting coffee or even tobacco… Cotton. Today, our planet is in desperate trouble. Earth is suffocating as large tracts of rain forests disappear. Pollution, poisons and chemicals are killing the planet. These problems could have been avoided if the British textile industry hadn’t “suddenly” discovered Cotton.

 El Niño and mankind before the 20th century by ELinacre,
August 25, 1814, British troops captured the nation’s capital during the War of 1812, setting fire to buildings in retaliation for American wins. A tornado struck as the government buildings burned, killing 30 soldiers and many local residents. One British historian noted, "More British soldiers were killed and wounded by this stroke of nature than from all the firearms the American troops had mustered in the ineffectual defense of the city." The account in "Washington Weather" tells of a British admiral who asked a local woman whether the storm was typical of the weather "in this infernal country." The lady told him that it was a storm specially sent by God "to drive our enemies from the city." September 11, 1814 the decisive battle of the War of 1812.
