Levers of Power, or the Ghost of Peter Cooper in All His Glory


Levers of Power, or the Ghost of Peter Cooper in All His Glory is a series of essays that contains parcels of wisdom, snippets of buried history and philosophical reveries that methodically and heartlessly dissolve the assumptions girding our contemporary monetary system and the corrupt political institutions that support it.

This is the first in a series of books written and published by author Keith M. Judge that follows on the heels of 10 years of research on the intersections of World Capital, authoritarianism and the contemporary nation state. Topics include COVID19, the status quo, fascism, the destruction of Nature, industrialization, monopolies, Marxism, American Libertarianism, central banking, debt, iniquity, the measure of wealth, the function of currency in society, Capitalism, the gold standard, cryptocurrency, Ponzi schemes, disinformation, the American party system and the connections between mercantilism and human captivity. Protagonists include epidemiologists; a presidential nominee of several third party tickets, Peter Cooper; the escaped human captive and autodidact, Frederick Douglass; and Non-Partisan League gubernatorial candidate for Minnesota, Charles August Lindbergh Sr., who indicted the first Federal Reserve Board for its unconstitutional character, and for conspiring to “devise a means through social, political, and other ways of strategy and by general chicanery, to deceive the people of The United States.” Antagonists include corporate shills who pose as journalists, economics professors, Donald Trump and his company men, Alexander Hamilton and his Federalists, slavers and Capitalists, so-called representatives, Plato, J.P. Morgan and G. Edward Griffin. A section published under a creative commons license in March 2021, “COVID & The Status Quo,” may be the first published instance of an author having predicted the pandemic won’t abate so long as public health is flouted, vaccines are rejected, resources are distributed from a central authority and trade is global.

No single part reveals the entirety of this book, but each part is necessary to the whole. There is no escaping this story: it follows us on our way to work and watches us as we sleep. Enter a stained-glass window depicting a fractal of human folly in the American idiom.
