Rap Battle: Ron Paul vs Peter Joseph

If you are familiar with the YouTube channel , you already know that there is a bias towards the extreme, the provocative and the entertaining. So their latest presentation may NOT absolutely reflect what Ron Paul’s “Gold Standard” perspective is, but it’s a stylish way to introduce to the masses an alternative argument to the mainstream arguments for more Red Team tax cuts, more Blue Team spending, and more Red, White and Blue Federal Reserve print bombing.

As we all learned in 2008, it’s at a high premium to educate before the collapse on the difference between Capitalism (a system the left thinks we have), Communism (a system the right thinks we have) and Corporatism (the system we in reality have), so to have us intellectually united in demanding “Let Them Fail” and “Jail NOT Bail” against the true culprit of Corporatism. 

This video erases our pre-programmed dividing lines to enjoy a fun-loving economic discussion icebreaker and helps to personally reflect on how close we are to the next economic paradigm shift and to reflect on how you can personally prepare now for that transition.

RapNews: episode 9. 2011 hits harder than a pre-apocalyptic hangover as “the economy” threatens to annihilate our stock-piles of imaginary, inflated wealth, spawning a battle of epic proportions as insurgent grassroots forces move in to #OccupywallStreet and coalitions of indignados hold their ground in Athens, Madrid and Tel Aviv, facing riotgear, batons and tazers which seek to prevent a more equal redistribution of the proverbial pie.

But enough action and excitement! It’s time for some heroic armchair philosophy: Join your affable host, Robert Foster, as he attempts to shine some light on this mysterious creature, “the economy”.

Is this the failure of capitalism that we are witnessing, or its triumph? Is it the end of the end of history, or yet another crazy chapter in the whimsical journey of the human experiment? For the occasion, we’ve pulled out the big guns: admittedly it was a tough choice deciding who to interview: we could’ve had Alan Greenspan on the show, or the Emperor himself, Milton Friedman; the first lady, Christine Lagarde; or financial buffs like Gerald Celente, Peter Schiff and Donald Trump. But to get the freshest juice we knew we had to go further – much further.

Rap News 9 features two VIP Internet grandees who have uploaded gigabytes of truth via the one remaning free frequency – the internet – to feed a discerning and ravenous audience, hungry for answers: US Congressman, Ron Paul, and Zeitgeist film-maker, Peter Joseph. Whilst these two fine folk agree with each other on many things, fortunately, there’s no shortage of issues to rap-battle about: Do we need to inject more paper into the financial furnace, or do we need a different fuel entirely – more gold and less lead? Some say we should ditch the entire engine and replace it with something entirely new – but with what exactly? Is the answer to our impeding economic demise contained in shiny new cybernated inventions, or might it actually require us to remember and look back to tried and tested models of economic organisation? Well, time’s short so let the rhyme-rodeo begin as we blast off on a rollercoaster odyssey. It’s the stupid Economy, in all its gory glory.
