The Non-Agression Principle: The Most Civilized Principle

The below video clip shows a Luke Rudkowski video confrontation with Lord Jacob Rothschild. I have watched it several times. What fascinates me is that Rothschild acts so civilized in the clip. At the end, he appears a bit confused and not quite sure how to respond, but still even at that point he remains in a civilized posture.

He doesn't run from the camera and not answer questions, the way we have seen others do. He doesn't block the camera as others have done. Most significantly, he doesn't violate the non-aggression principle and push the camera away. He even seems to give Rudkowski some respect and allows Rudkowski to ask questions. Rudkowski, for sure, caught him off guard so this isn't a pose that Rothschild is using just for Rudkowski. It is likely his way of dealing with others, at least in public.

Think about that. Here is one of the richest most powerful men in the world and he adopts a pose that appears downright in line with the libertarian non-aggression principle. Watch the clip, he is respecting others and not exhibiting any signs of being a man of aggression at all.

Of course, in reality, he plots with war criminals such as Henry Kissinger, and heads of state. He is the ultimate crony capitalist. Here is what Wikipedia says about him:
Today, Jacob is Chairman of RIT Capital Partners plc, one of the largest investment trusts quoted on the London Stock Exchange with a net asset value of about £2 billion. He is Chairman of J Rothschild Capital Management, a subsidiary of RIT Capital Partners plc. In 2006, Jacob became a Founding Partner and Advisory Board Member of Xander Real Estate (India). He is also a Member of the Council for the Duchy of Cornwall for HRH The Prince of Wales and a member of the International Advisory Board of The Blackstone Group. He also retains many other venture capital and property interests. 
From November 2003 until his retirement in 2008, he was Deputy Chairman of BSkyB Television  and until 2008 he was a Director of RHJ International. 
In 2003 Rothschild came under scrutiny when Russian oil industrialist Mikhail Khodorkovsky's shares in YUKOS passed to him under a deal they concluded prior to Khodorkovsky's arrest. 
In November 2010, an undisclosed entity affiliated with Rothschild purchased a 5.0% equity interest in Genie Energy, a subsidiary of IDT Corporation, for $10.0 million. Shortly thereafter, potential 2012 U.S. Presidential candidate Sarah Palin hired former IDT executive Michael Glassner as her chief of staff. 
From his headquarters in St James's Place in London, Jacob Rothschild has cultivated an influential set of clients, business associates and friends who have extended his interests far beyond the normal scope of a banker. He was a close personal friend of Diana, Princess of Wales and maintains strong personal and business links with Henry Kissinger.
His country estate has been a regular venue for visiting heads of state including Presidents Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton. Margaret Thatcher received French President Fran├žois Mitterrand there at a summit in 1990. He hosted the European Economic Round Table conference in 2002, attended by such figures as James Wolfensohn, former president of the World Bank, Nicky Oppenheimer, Warren Buffett and Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Yet, instinctively, with all that power, Rothschild adopts a posture that seems to imply he respects the non-aggression principle. He wants to pose as the most civilized person in the world. In other words, he knows the best way to present himself is as a civilized man, that's what people respond to in positive fashion, and the libertarian non-aggression principlemis the most civilized principle in the world.

  1. We Are Change is an invaluable group. Most involved seem to possess great common sense, since I have never heard one of them utter an egregiously ignorant statement on economics or politics (The closest qualifier is the complaint of the Fed being a "private" bank). Many seem to favor Ron Paul, and have reached out to build a bridge between themselves and strange groups like Occupy.

    While naysayers may criticize their tactics as ambush journalism, this is usually the main route of access for the "great unwashed." Public encounters vacillate between polite and pointed questioning, to nonviolent condemnation and sardonic remarks. Both can be effective in shifting public opinion. When approached by independent media, it becomes evident these suddenly laconic, grape-eating fatsos do not want to be exposed; even at this late stage of the game.

    As We Are Change has become more seasoned, they have developed better techniques at getting access and delivering lucid, open-ended questions. When the PTB lie, or fail to answer, these responses can be cross-referenced through an internet search. If We Are Change piqued the interest of a non-libertarian, no single researcher need be excessively detail oriented.
    They only require enough curiosity to discover the disparity between actions and words.

    These are the "bright lights of publicity" that David Rockefeller and friends feared. In 1991, he thanked the mainstream media for not subjecting them to it. Why would they? They're junior partners.

    The new media is growing in size and ability. Without the power of the hammer and sickle, it's not going anywhere. I doubt these young people could be bought off, either. They understand there's too much to lose.

  2. The age of the internet has made money less influential in distorting the truth.

    Obviously money can no longer provide even Rothschild full protection from it.

  3. Here's a thought:

    Over the generations of its existence, the Rothcschild family fortune has likely been coveted by the lowly of thugs of the world and ambitious tyrants alike. As a loving parent with eyes wide open, I can not honestly know what measures I would not consider in securing such a hard fought family fortune in a world such as ours.

    It is easy to judge, and more convenient still, to judge the Rothschild family as "evil." But it is more difficult and perhaps no less true to judge them as wise, prudent and loving parents, grandparents, great grandparents, etc.

  4. I think you're giving our dear 'Lord' Jacob Rothschild too much credit. Reading your post I almost expected an actual conversation with luke and LJR pleading his case saying we got the NWO all wrong, or maybe the Fed isn't so bad.

    But he just basically blew Luke off. Granted he didn't hit him or tell him to get the @#$% out of his face, so I'll give him credit for his English reserve.

    Also, I have to admit I'm surprised he doesn't have body guards who would have shooed Luke away.
