Grunch of Giants by R. Buckminster Fuller

September 24, 2009 by  

“Gross Universe Cash Heist (Grunch)” is the theory that large corporations use the government to enforce their economic suppression of the rest of society and steal resources and assets from around the world whenever and wherever they want.

Written by inventor, architect, engineer, geometrician, cartographer and philosopher R. Buckminster Fuller in 1981, Grunch of Giants postulates the theory that the United States industrial complex—corporations—are controlling world events for their own ends. Even politicians are controlled by Grunch, a vast invisible empire that includes airwaves and satellites, factories and research laboratories and large cities.

Nobody knows who runs Grunch, but it controls all the world’s banks and does just what its lawyers tell it to do. All decisions for Grunch are made in back rooms, with the deciding factors being business and money.

According to Fuller, every day 75,000 humans around the world die of starvation and its side effects, even though more than enough food is produced to support all the people on earth. Grunch did not cause this, Fuller says, but Grunch could easily end it if it so chose.

Grunch, Fuller writes, did not invent the universe. In fact, it did not invent anything. It monopolizes know-where and know-how but is devoid of know-why. It is preoccupied with absolute selfishness and its guaranteed gratifications. It is as blind as its Swiss banks are mute.

In order to understand how the Grunch works, Fuller says you must first study their history and development. In beginning his explanation, Fuller quotes one of his friends, who he called a giant and described as a member of the Morgan family (presumably the J.P. Morgan banker family). “Bucky, I’m very fond of you, so I am sorry to have to tell you that you will never be a success. You go around explaining in simple terms that which people have not been comprehending, when the first law of success is, ‘Never make things simple when you can make them complicated.’”

One of the first things Fuller had to do was make a decision: Did he want to try to make money, or make sense, as the two things are mutually exclusive. So Fuller decided to make sense and he used his books to explain how the world works.

This book is not light reading. In fact, it is often difficult to follow and at times quite scientific in its language. Nor is it for the closed-minded, because it challenges conventional thinking and forces the reader to look at the world from a different paradigm.

But if you are willing to consider that things aren’t as they seem, and in fact are completely different from what all are taught, then this book makes a good addition to your library.

    GRUNCH, a book that Bob Livingston must read and then pass on to Mike Hukabee.

    People are still talking about “big government ramming down our throat”. Think about it, the “american dream” is a nightmare of big corporations enslaving the people with mortgages and health insurance et al., rammed down our throat for a big part of one’s life

    I would rather a necessary government, however “big” with efficient and productive honest workers than a small government with lazy ineffective corrupted excuses- the source of the economic and social problems and Reagan was one of those but he had the podium to say ” government is the problem” to let him off the hook. Still he forgot to duck, didn’t he?

    AWAY all those “prostitutes” in government taking corruption money from interest groups.

    More and more this country is going that Left-Wing Socialist road like a freight train at 90 miles an hour. What can we do to stop it? I fax and e-mail Congressmen and Senators every week. They just keep going down that left-wing socialist Road. I know there are few good people, in Washington. What can 4 or 5 do against 100. Not much.
    Freedom is not free. You have to work at it everyday. When good men and women do nothing, Evil wins everytime. What have you done for freedom this week?

    Bucky Fuller didn’t do his homework. There’s an old relationship between governments and corporations that many people choose to ignore. It’s alive and well in America.
    Its polite name is fascism. Its classic definition is a situation where an onlooker can’t tell the difference between a government a corporation. In America, the worst offender has been around for the better part of 100 years. In Washington, they don’t like to talk about it much, as that would offend ‘certain’ people, and endanger certain ‘jobs.’
    Its ‘legal’ name is the Federal Reserve.
