Early nineteenth-century governments began to assist abandoned children through orphanages and poor houses, though many beneficent societies were associated with the Catholic Church or lay brotherhoods. Europe’s money supply tripled during the first 50 years of the Spanish invasion, and wealth became seen as money, and money could buy everything, even a ticket to heaven, in Spanish eyes.� Greed became a European mainstay from that time forward.� European ideologists transformed a deadly sin into a virtue, and greed is assumed in today’s capitalistic ideology, with its “law” of supply and demand, and ever-increasing profits (for the idle owners) being the primary reason for a corporation’s existence.� Once ideological principles are assumed, they largely become invisible and are rarely examined afterward.� The Europ ean concept of wealth became abstracted with the money revolution, and it became further abstracted with the rise of capitalism.� Shares of corporate stock are the ultimate symbols of wealth in today’s world and define the fortunes of the world’s richest people, from Bill Gates and the Walton (Wal-Mart) family on downward.� Around the year 2000, Bill Gates possessed more “wealth” than the 100 million poorest Americans combined, to reach surreal levels of wealth concentration.� The rise of the corporation was evident when Great Britain began plundering India, and shares of the English East India Company became coveted as the money rolled in from the rape of Bengal, and the East India Company became India's acting government.� The USA's govern ment is hailed as the world’s oldest and the best example of the virtues of democracy.� The facts are something different.� More than 400 years ago, and perhaps as many as 800 years ago, the Iroquois Confederation came into being, founded on its “ Great Law of Peace .”� It still exists.� American elites created the Constitution by borrowing heavily from the Iroquois Confederation’s system.� The Iroquois had a system that is still more democratic than any political system that the West ever devised.� Women owned the village land, cast their children’s vote in proxy, and elected the chiefs.� The women could replace the chiefs if they did not act as the women liked.� It was a balance of power between the sexes that no Western nation has ever approached.� White men can still be found who deride the influence of the Iroquois system on the Constitution as “apocryphal,” partly because the Iroquois have never put their law to paper.� The Iroquois believe that ideas lose too much of their meaning when committed to a limiting form such as writing (and can more easily fall prey to dogmatism, not to mention legalism), a common understanding among the “primitive” natives.� The Iroquois govern ment was highly decentralized and democratic, with decisions being made by consensus and little power vested in the hands of any one person.� When the USA used the Iroquois system as a model, those monarchical Europeans invented the executive branch (George Washington was almost named king, and to his credit did not like the idea), which has been the primary method by which the USA's government has been undermined, with almost wholly unaccountable executive branch agencies such as the Internal Revenue Service, FBI, CIA, Department of Justice, Department of Defense, and the like, agencies that rely in large measure on secrecy, deception, and violence.� The balance of power between the branches of the USA's government is more theoretical than actual, as the same rich interests largely own all of them, but the presidency is the easiest to manipulate, as there is only one person in that branch, although his retinue is immense.
