Plutocracy was grafted into the Constitution.http://www.relatably.com/q/img/andrew-jackson-quotes-on-banks/president-andrew-jackson.jpg
The stage was set for the establishment of a bank to control the government for their economy when the US Constitution was written. While the Fed did not exist at the time, the composition of the plan for government left some critical openings for rule by the wealthy with the overproduction of munitions.
The Constitution is a wonderful compendium of abstractions that combine three branches for the separation of powers and lists a number of rights that make the republic democratic. It is however flawed insofar as it reduces the mechanics of the operation to claims to absolute power by a select few from outside the government.
This artifice was achieved with the abstraction of the doctrine of destruction as stated by John Locke. He used the statement, ‘I can destroy those who would destroy me.’ as a way to compete with continental powers in imperial expansion. The slave trade was a large part of competition for expansion. Locke’s statement was also an abstraction of genocidal policy as grafted into the bible during the assembly of the canon of scripture during the Roman occupation.
Madison co-opted the statement with the war powers clause, when he wrote that Congress has the power to declare war. Congress has only declared war a number of times, but the separation of powers subordinates decision making for military action to those who control the munitions industry.
The power for that control has been taken by the leadership for the private banking system. They seek to control federal policy with the Fed, but campaign, lobbying and media expression contributions manipulate the candidates for elected and appointed offices.
The Louisiana Purchase nearly doubled the size of the nation in 1803. http://www.legendsofamerica.com/we-westwardexpansion.html
“President Thomas Jefferson nearly doubled the size of the nation by negotiating a price of $15 million to purchase 828,800 square miles from France, including all or part of 14 current states”
Jefferson set a tone by sending Lewis and Clarke on an expedition to map a course to the Pacific Ocean. It was a diplomatic mission. They were sent with gifts and instructed to show respect for the natives.
Westward expansion however was doomed as a cooperative enterprise. The British and French monarchies had stipulated respect for the rights of native Americans. This precedent set an example for early legislation and treaties.
The parliaments and some aristocrats however were playing tribal conflict with rival tribes and settlers from the respective realms for their competitive advantage. Treaties could be formed with the best of intents, but when settlers were not being pushed to take more land, tribes were being told to stop the settlers from taking more land by ‘advisers.’
Banks were in a position to make the most money with investments in respective businesses. Their best bet for controlling the economy for the nation however laid in the means for destruction of opposition in conflict. Whoever controlled profit from the production of weapons and munitions would control the decision making process.
This set the stage for Andrew Jackson’s statement, “The bank, Mr. Van Buren, is trying to kill me. I will kill it.” (1832)http://www.relatably.com/q/img/andrew-jackson-quotes-on-banks/president-andrew-jackson.jpg
Cornelius Hill was born into a political climate for plutocratic change in Wisconsin 1834.
Reduction towards Removal http://www.wisconsinhistory.org/turningpoints/tp-018/?action=more_essay
“Prior to the Black Hawk War in 1832, Indians primarily inhabited much of Wisconsin. By the mid nineteenth century, though, Indians had been induced to cede most of their lands to the federal government. Some were relocated west of the Mississippi River. Thus, the settlement of Wisconsin by European immigrants was preceded and made possible by the coerced reduction of tribal lands and the forced removal of Indian populations.”
Tribes were not only played against the Americans by British and French “traders,” they were played off against each other by the US government. https://www.dhs.wisconsin.gov/minority-health/population/amind-pophistory.htm
“The tension between tribes was created because the United States government had used them against each other to gain more lands.”
Cornelius was assimilated by religion, but he learned English and used his status to argue in behalf of native rights to land.
Learned English https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cornelius_Hill
“Cornelius Hill was born on tribal lands in Wisconsin and baptised in due course by missionary bishop Jackson Kemper. In 1843, Episcopal missionary the Rev. James Lloyd Breck escorted the ten-year-old and two other boys to the newly established Nashotah House to learn English and be educated for five years.”
He was born into the Oneida tribe. The Oneida were with the Iroquois confederacy in New York state. They were known for their longhouses and communal lifestyle. They were not opposed to settlement.
“Hill also helped tribal members learn new farming techniques and secure machinery. Women also made baskets and beadwork for sale, and after 1900 learned to make lace to support themselves in the modernized world.”
The Dawes Act of 1887 divided tribal allocations into individual properties. It was a way of reducing the land protected by treaties. It was also part of the movement to assimilate native Americans in European American traditions.
Exposure to European American Culture http://www.wisconsinhistory.org/turningpoints/tp-050/?action=more_essay
“ Instead of tribal land belonging to the whole tribe, it was broken up and given to individuals. After the allotment process was completed, the federal government sold the "excess" land to whites to help expose Indians to the civilizing effects of mainstream American society.”
“Federal policy was enshrined in the General Allotment (Dawes) Act of 1887 which decreed that Indian Reservation land was to be divided into plots and allocated to individual Native Americans. These plots could not be sold for 25 years, but reservation land left over after the distribution of allotments could be sold to outsiders.”
Cornelius used his knowledge of tribal history from New York and his communication skills to defend native allocations.
Defense from Fraud https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cornelius_Hill#Career
“As had happened in New York State, unscrupulous persons often tried to swindle tribal members out of their allocations. Throughout his life, Hill fought such dismemberment of tribal property, as well as government attempts to move his people further west.”
Hill was ordained a priest in 1903. He was the first from his tribe. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cornelius_Hill#Career
“On June 24, 1903, Bishop Grafton ordained Hill as a priest, the first of his people; during the ceremony Hill repeated his vows in his native language.”
Cornelius Hill died in 1907. The country had gone through a number of changes during his lifetime. Manifest Destiny was used to press westward expansion to the Pacific coast. A national bank was established at the end of the Civil War to help control the government by private interests. The Dawes Act promoted a policy of aggressive assimilation.
Natives were not recognized as citizens throughout the nineteenth century.. https://www.loc.gov/teachers/classroommaterials/presentationsandactivities/presentations/immigration/native_american4.html
“Despite their welcome to serve in the Union Army, Native Americans were not recognized as U.S. citizens throughout the nineteenth century. A clause in the Fourteenth Amendment “excluding Indians not taxed” prevented Native American men from receiving the right to vote when African-American men gained suffrage in 1868.”
The doctrine for destruction was veiled by the abstraction of the war powers clause, but it was evident in the policy of slavery for African Americans and genocide for native Americans who resisted assimilation.
Capitalist economic theory was the override for civil rights and moral civility. The leading banker used the claim to absolute power to increase control over the government and to start the global extension of capitalism as the economic rule of law for other lands as well.
