Edwin Jessop Marshall
By Atom Bergstrom
History is “his story”when it comes to kings and dictators and “their story” when it comes to oligarchies and fake democracies.
In the words of George Orwell …
“Who controls the past controls the future: who controls the present controls the past.”
Bill Gates owns 242,000 acres of farmland.
That’s small potatoes compared to over 100 years ago during the Golden Age of Alleged Capitalism.
Edwin Jessop Marshall owned MILLIONS of acres of ranch and farm real estate in the U.S. and Mexico.
One Mexican ranch alone was 2 million fenced-in acres.
52,000 acres of his Lompoc land were “condemned” by the U.S. oligarchy in 1941 to set up Camp Cooke, which eventually became Vandenberg Space Force Base.
Contrary to American history propagandists, Rockefeller was only one among many Fat Cats thriving during the Gilded Age (1870-1910) and beyond.
John Adams warned us about the final outcome of American materialism over 200 years ago, while Thomas Jefferson had his head up his bum.
Re: The King Ranch currently 825,000 acres, and use to be 1,225,000 with land outside of the U.S.
The original owners got it by betraying both the United States of America and the Confederate States of America to make their fortune.
Our American civilization is built on piracy, betrayal, and criminality.
Edwin Jessop Marshall’s second largest ranch was only 1,500,000 acres.
Back in the day, Mexico was a U.S. fiefdom with U.S. landowners owning outright 25% of all Mexico’s real estate.
Re: Jefferson adopted way too much of the French “governmental do gooder” ethos that only exists on paper.
Jefferson’s philosophy was shaped by John Locke and Adam Smith.
He supported the overthrow of governments all over the planet, lending personal support to the French Revolution, hoping the “ball of liberty” would “roll around the world.”
The sole revolution he didn’t support was the Haitian Revolution.
According to the Library of Congress …
“Sensing rising criticism of the excesses of the French Revolution in the letters of William Short (1759-1848), his handpicked chargé des affaires in Paris, Secretary of State Jefferson sharply chastised Short and praised the revolution despite its rising irrationality and violence: ‘and was ever such a prize won with so little innocent blood? my own affections have been deeply wounded by some of the martyrs to this cause, but rather than it should have failed, I would have seen half the earth desolated. were there but an Adam and Eve left in every country, left free, it would be better than as it now is.'”
