Bankers about to pull a fake rabbit out of a hat? (revised - see Notes)

It’s an all too common mistake to see the central bankers and their mainstream media propagandists derided as incompetent fools. These “fools” control the money and the message and it’s their game to lose. Most pundits think the powers that be have lost control and can do little more than kick the can down the road. They are wrong. We are about to witness one of the greatest orchestrated events in human history; a monumental sleight of hand that will restore economic prosperity, keep the masses happy and, most importantly, maintain the parasitic elites in power.
from What QE3 Will Look Like by Robert Bonomo

The above-mentioned "sleight of hand" is described near the end of the article, in the section entitled The Big Finale. It boils down to writing down debt in exchange for balanced budgets, etc., which despite the article's assertions to the contrary, would amount to "kicking the can down the road." There is nothing about colossal infrastructure projects, without which there can be no real economic recovery. This alone indicates that the oligarchy might be letting their schedule slip a bit, but that their depopulation agenda is still in place. Combined with all of the chaos-operations around the planet, it appears that the oligarchy intends to eventually unleash cataclysmic activity by causing our collective will to become chaotic.

The writer or writers of the article have a blog, and I paid it a visit to see what else he/they have to say. There I found an article entitled The Artist and his Demons which seems to hint at the esoteric truth about modern human consciousness, while explicitly attributing it to a Darwinian process. It includes a quotation by George Orwell in which Orwell attributes the drive to think and create to a demon, and perhaps this is based on the knowledge of the influence of Luciferic demons, as opposed to Satanic demons. The nature of Luciferic demons is indicated in the following passages:
The other beings [other than Satanic demons of destruction, that is], into whose sphere man comes when he penetrates behind the veil of the life of soul, have a quite different character. They have no particular lust for destruction. In point of fact, what we know as destruction does not enter their ken. They have a veritable passion for creating, for bringing something into being — a tremendous urge for activity, for productivity. And they too have certain higher faculties which are less closely related to our thinking than to our feeling, and especially to our will. We enter here into a sphere of beings preeminently related to our will, but — curiously enough — to the noblest sides of our will. [Steiner subsequently describes LUCIFERIC possession, which imparts a constant state of rapture, which I suspect is what Barbara Marx Hubbard called "supra sex."]
In this series of lectures, Rudolf Steiner strives to deepen our understanding of the two opposing forces, to alert us especially to the dangers of Ahriman, whose wiles have lulled us into a soporific state. The intent, however, is not to drive us to obsession over LUCIFERIC OR AHRIMANIC DEMONS, but rather to remind us, to reawaken us to our true center. [Emphasis added - included as evidence that there are such things as Luciferic "demons."]
Well, my dear friends, we have asked about the origin of human intelligence, about the origin of human intelligent behavior which, stating it simply, has its instrument in our head organism. And we have seen that this intelligent constitution of our soul stems from that deed of the Archangel Michael which is commonly presented in the symbol of the fall, the casting down of the Dragon. This is actually a very trivial symbol. For, if we really conceive of Michael and the Dragon, we have to visualize, first, the Michael Being, and, secondly, the Dragon who, in reality, consists of all that which enters into our so-called reason, into our intelligence. Not into a hell does Michael cast his opposing hosts, but into the human heads; there this Luciferic impulse continues to live. I have characterized human intelligence as an actual Luciferic impulse. Thus we may say: if we look back into the evolution of the Earth, we find the Michael-deed, and to this Michael-deed is joined the illumination of man by his reason.
Thus, it is revealed to the perception of initiation science that we are perceiving and intelligent beings by virtue of our living in the fourth sphere of our evolution. But we must never forget that the Luciferic power influenced this intelligence in which we must always include sense perceptions. This Luciferic power is intimately connected with the special kind of intelligence which the human being today considers his very own and which he prefers to employ. Yet, man was endowed with this intelligence only through the fact that higher being of whom I have spoken to you as the Michael-being has cast the Luciferic beings down into the sphere of men, into the fourth sphere of men. Through this the impulse of intelligence arose in human beings.

Note the distinction between Lucifer, whose influence is that of taking us off into a fantasy-world independent of the natural world, and Satan, whose influence can be characterized as materialistic, as reducing us to an accidental combination of particles which mysteriously always existed. One of Christ's influences is to help us strike a balance between excessive mysticism and excessive materialism.

The Luciferic impulse to think and create includes the tendency to fantasize and to turn these fantasies into physical reality, or in other words, to try to live in denial of reality, although the natural world eventually provides a "reality check." The notion that monetary tricks can keep the system going is one such Luciferic notion which will eventually be dashed on the rocks of the natural world.
