Money

Freedom from debt slavery to creativity and wealth

“Money makes the world go round” how true. Is there any aspect of our lives that isn’t touched by it in some way? We go out most days to “make a living” meaning to make money only to see it go as quickly as it comes, sometimes even quicker. UK Government debt is now about £1.8 trillion with interest payments on this debt over £1 billion a week! Yes, just interest repayments. This doesn’t even lower the growing debt. Yet our well paid public servants only talk about paying off the debt and the question of how we got to this state of affairs is never addressed. They talk in terms that make it sound very complex and complicated, so we must leave it to the “economic experts” who seem to talk a lot but not actually saying a lot.  Austerity is in full swing as we have to “balance the books”. Yet even with austerity government spending is increasing. This doesn’t even take into account personal debt in the shape of credit cards, mortgages (French for death grip) and even future debt in the shape of state pensions. In this article we will try to look into the true nature of money, what it is, where it comes from, how it is being used and how it could be used. Control of the money supply is a war that has been going on for millennia, including the story of Jesus and the money changers and even further back. This enormous history lesson has been well covered by monetary reform guy Bill Still in his documentary “The Money Masters”, saving us having to cover it here. It is an extensive subject by itself and his documentary can be seen on YouTube.

 

What is money?   

 

So let’s get back to the foundation and ask what money really is? Understanding this is where it starts, as this is true for all serious investigations. Money is, or at least should be, a representation of our productive energies to be passed around to get around the problem of bartering. We may want something someone produces or a service they offer but we haven’t got anything to exchange in return. So this little piece of paper (or now number on a computer) is exchanged representing a certain agreed amount of my productive energies that can be redeemed at any time by anyone. So money being passed round is productive energies being passed around. The more you have of it would fairly represent your productive output. The more money in circulation would indicate lots of productivity and less money less productive activity. Just to be clear, everything we need in order to thrive has been given to us free by the creator. The sun doesn’t charge us to come up every morning. Money is not a necessity to create wealth but just a tool to facilitate the fair passing of production. A fully conscious, compassionate, mankind could get on fine without it but that doesn’t mean there is anything wrong with a monetary system providing it is being used fairly. So how is it being used?   

 

Our present monetary system

 

In the UK at present over 97% of “money” comes into existence as credit/loans (new deposits). Most people think that when they deposit money in a bank the bank then uses this same money to loan out to other people. Well this couldn’t be further from the truth. With factional reserve banking the bank only needs about 10% or even less in reserve, in deposits, to the amount it can loan. Meaning basically when you get a loan from a bank the “money” they loan you is actually created out of thin air on computer. Imagine this for a moment, you borrow £100,000 to buy a house and years later depending on interest rates you may pay back double and yet the bank never really loaned you anything. Yes, it was just created in five minutes on a screen and you slave away for years to pay back the interest. Not a bad hourly rate I think you will agree! It is the document you sign which in fact creates this new money. Your promise to pay with your future production, your working life. This actually isn’t the problem, creating money out of thin air. When you start to pay back your loan, you then take that money out of circulation as it was only put out there to represent your future earnings. The problem is the interest, because the bank only created the new money based on the amount of the loan, but they didn’t create the interest. And when you see that interest charges now can range from 3% to over a 1000% on credit cards or payday loans, it becomes obvious that there is never enough money in circulation to pay back all the running loans. In fact, the only way the system can continue is by the constant introduction of “new deposits” in the form of more loans/debt. Watch on YouTube the documentary “Money as Debt”. Add to this that they can also sell this promise to play on the financial markets. We now have our credit being gambled on open markets and we all know what happened in 2008. Remember this when our highly paid alleged public servants tell us austerity is necessary because money doesn’t grow on trees and they can’t just create it out of thin air! Where do they actually think it comes from? If it isn’t found in nature it has to have been created by men! This is a question you will never find being addressed by the corporate controlled mainstream media or by our esteemed experts in parliament. One of the consequences of this is consumerism, the production of products, needed or not, to be made and passed through the conveyor belt for sale and to land fill as quickly as possible. So the insanity can continue to keep the debt based system going. Try telling this to an environmental activist! It is this what is causing environmental genocide. It would be wiser to campaign on the root of the problem then on the big corporations taking advantage of it. This is why when the “experts” - nice suits from the city of London, an independent sovereign state within the UK like the Vatican within Italy - are interviewed on radio or television about the economy, they only talk about public consumer spending. Indeed, let us shop shop shop  our way out of our financial problems. Highly paid, well educated, morons in braces, although I suspect some of them really know what they are doing! Even our own financial economic genius George Osbourne just talks about economic output and economic growth. So tell me then, Mr Osbourne, why exactly does the economy need to grow constantly? Why do you say immigration is great because of the amount they put into the economy? Yes, more consumers, another supporter of the economic plan to shop our way out of financial disaster. The truth is it needs to grow to stop the whole system of debt collapsing, as we have already shown that there is never enough money in circulation to pay back all of the debt. And what happens when you can’t pay your mortgage? We all know they come in and take the real wealth, which is the house. And when the banking system controls over 97% of money in circulation they can easily create booms and bust by just increasing or reducing the loans, which makes boom and bust organised theft. The present monetary system is an energetic drain on humanity. You get back a lot less in relation to what you put in and the men who control the system receive far more than they contribute. Come to think of it, they actually don’t contribute anything. This is what this whole global corporate banking system is about , taking ownership (another man-made concept) of all the real wealth in the world like the World Bank and IMF are doing throughout the world and especially Africa and Latin America. I encourage you to read “The Open Veins of Latin America” by Eduardo Galeano. This present monetary system is responsible for not only our economic problems, but the wars, poverty, and environmental disasters on the planet.                                                                              

 

Central Banks

 

Again another big subject so I will try and be brief. The model for central banking is the Bank of England, again to be found in the sovereign state of the City of London. It was formed by subscribers to fund the rebuilding of the British Navy after the war. Subscribers were lending money to the British Government providing the nations finances were handed over to them to handle. So it started out as a private bank in the old way of the Court Jews, facilitating loans on behalf of the Government. They now control interest rates and are told to keep inflation below about 2% though there doesn’t seem to be any consequence if they don’t. They hold the reserves of the high street banks. Basically a private bank paid to borrow money from other private banks and corporations to enslave the host nation into an unpayable debt. Yes the present Bank of England has been nationalised, but that just means basically that the Government bought up all the shares. In the case of the Federal Reserve in the U.S.A it is totally owned by private banks and yes you guessed it, founded in the sovereign state of the district of Colombia, together with its close friends the IMF and the World Bank. What is important is the function of the bank and not who owns it. And its function is to facilitate debt and control (manipulate) interest rates. This surely constitutes a conflict of interest. “No man can serve two masters for he will either hate the one and love the other, or else he will hold to the one” Mathew 6;24. Look at the world’s economic problems and where the wealth is going and decide who is the master of these central bankers. Also, have a look on the websites of central banks and the IMF, World Bank and the Bank of International Settlements, founded in “neutral” Switzerland, and all you see is corporate talk, including one thing they all have in common which is privatisation. Their loans have stipulations like having to privatise your water supply and as these loans cannot be paid back, they debt is bigger than the loan. They will then go into debt slavery and forced privatisation to just pay off the loans. All a big scam! Enough of the problem though, now to solutions.                                                                           

 

Glass Steagall

 

In the US, the Banking Act of 1933, commonly known as the Glass Steagall Act, stated “the separation of commercial and investment banking", which prevented security firms and investments banks from taking deposits and commercial Federal Reserve member banks from dealing in non-governmental securities for customers, which otherwise could lead them to invest in non-investment grade securities for themselves, underwriting or distributing non-governmental securities affiliating (or sharing employees) with companies involved in such activities. Easily put, separate the criminal gambling from our day to day banking so for those of us who choose not to gamble with our hard earned money will not be affected by those who do. This will remove enormous power from the criminal bankers and gamblers, making money from money and making money from debt in what is in fact a big worldwide casino. This is an absolutely necessary first step towards a just monetary system and only complete separation, not George Osbourne’s “ring fence”, will do the trick. Criminals always find ways of getting round or under fences.

 

The myth of a gold backed currency

 

Many now are putting forward a gold backed currency to stabilise the financial system. Again I will be brief and recommend Bill Still again and his documentary “The Secret of OZ” for a full understanding of why gold is not a good idea. Firstly, who owns all the gold? We know Gordon Brown sold of half the UK gold reserves at a rock bottom price, without asking us. It is now mainly in the hands of private banks and investors and not in Fort Knox, as Bill Still points out. So again we gave the criminal bankers the control.  Next, does this mean that when a country has no gold it will remain poor forever, subjected to the will of the “gold merchants”? Will we then see wars over gold reserves and more poor African and Latin American nations being commercially invaded by corporate military, if need be, to control gold mining. Lastly, people who put forward a gold backed currency have lost sight of what true wealth is. It cannot be found in so-called precious metals that cannot be used to feed us or clothe us or keep us warm. We are the wealth, our ideas and productivity using the resources available to us. The resource in itself is not the wealth as without our imagination and human work it does no do anything, provides us with nothing. Give a starving man a choice of a table full of gold and a table full of food and he knows only the food will sustain him.

 

A just monetary system for all

 

So if we go back to money just being a representation of productivity founded on creative ideas and natural resources, then here is my model for a fair and just system.

 

  • Stop Government borrowing NOW.
  • Bring in complete Glass Steagall separation of investment and commercial banking. This will also allow to stop bailing out bank. No more bailouts. Let them fail.
  • Direct from the treasury produce our own credit, based on what we need to produce as a nation:  fiscal expenses, to go on roads, infrastructure, schools, healthcare, transport and energy.
  • Nationalise the basic things of life to maintain society, such as utilities , water and energy, roads, main transport routes. In my opinion schools and healthcare is not such a simple area to nationalise as enormous changes need to be made first in those areas. Current they are not being run to the benefit of the people and people should always have a choice of healthcare and education. I would suggest though to have a national accident and emergency department.   
  • Ban all interest on loans. Introduce an upfront regulated service charge as a fee for extending credit. Then only the amount credited is to be paid back. This means the service charge will come out of the present existing money supply, so when the new money/credit is being created there will always be enough money in circulation to pay back the loan. The money that is created by the treasury is interest-free and the only debt attached to it is its use, as in the building of roads, the supplying of energy and other things the money was produced for in the first place. The debt will be in making excellent use of the credit given, so it's a debt of creating more, like more jobs and more wealth. Basically, anything we can imagine, we can produce the money needed to manifest it. Hence, this would be a great time to invest in real science and engineering and a great time to pursue free energy. I don't advocate a total ban on fractional reserve banking, as some suggest. Just as it is not good when the banking system has almost total control of the money supply, it would equally not be a good idea to let the government have all the control. Always spread the power out. A well-regulated system where the banks can create credit for private businesses and people, where the borrower and lender are held responsible for the new money being productive, can work well. We don’t want to go into a communist style of money system with total government control. This is the failing of the Cuban Revolution. Yes, they kicked out the banks and international corporation but they also took over everything and took away the people’s right to lead their own lives and run their own businesses.  Extreme socialism is an ideal that can never work as individuals have different dreams and they aspire to different things. With the recent economic changes in Cuba it seems they are waking up to this reality. Going from George Orwell “All men are born lazy but some are lazier than others”, why should one man work hard whilst the other is not and still receive the same in rewards? We need motivation, inspiration and incentive to work hard and create and manifest our ideas and the pursuit of material gain is not wrong in itself. Keeping available credit away from government allows us to imagine and manifest our ideas and pursue personal economic freedom, not depending on big government to provide all our needs. That, in the end, is disempowering. We are searching for self-empowerment and self-reliance, with only the back-up of the state when needed.  These steps will put an end to the insane destruction of the environment and real sustainability and working in harmony with nature can be realized when people locally are allowed to deal with the issues surrounding their land. No debt will also mean less time spent working to pay off debt and more time spent enjoying family life, dreaming and pondering the wonders of the universe. Does this mean an end to taxation? No, taxation will be used to control the amount of money in circulation, so that it is in relation to production. Taking money out of circulation when productivity is low helps to prevent inflation and enables a steady balanced economy. Taxation gain can then be re-invested into new production and any shortfall for big projects can just be created again, instead of borrowing again. The amount of money in circulation should always represent the amount of productive activity. At the moment there is plenty of work to be done but, in the present system, they say not enough money to fund it. Well, for God sake, create it! Interest free credit, backed by the ideas we want to manifest, mean any idea or productivity can be made to manifest simply by producing the money to facilitate it. The needed work dictates the money supply and not the other way round.

 

This is why I support the UK Column (www.ukcolumn.org) and their campaign for national credit in the form of the treasury produced Bradbury pound. Visit their website and read or download their free e-book. Yes, people are putting forward other solutions , like free money or new bitcoin currencies, but these solutions are trying to avoid or to get around the real problem, which is the fact that we are slaves to a criminal banking elite, that we have chosen to be slaves to the system, knowingly or not. True freedom and self-empowerment comes from acknowledging the problem and facing it head on. Getting off our backsides and  looking the enemy straight in the eye means getting over the fear. National credit can only come about through people pressure. The present system, together with the people running it, will not change for us as it is not supposed to be for us. This present system is perpetuated by fear and ignorance;  something they try to push on us more. Yet, a bit like the homeopathic signals in your remedies they probably are here to highlight our own existing problem, one we have long forgotten about. We have become fearful and dis-empowered. This attack on our livelihood is only highlighting that to our own system.

 

It is an opportunity to become aware.

 

Stand up and do something about it.

 

That is what self-empowerment is all about

Yes, people are putting forward other solutions , like free money or new bitcoin currencies, but these solutions are trying to avoid or to get around the real problem, which is the fact that we are slaves to a criminal banking elite, that we have chosen to be slaves to the system, knowingly or not. True freedom and self-empowerment comes from acknowledging the problem and facing it head on. Getting off our backsides and  looking the enemy straight in the eye means getting over the fear. National credit can only come about through people pressure. The present system, together with the people running it, will not change for us as it is not supposed to be for us. This present system is perpetuated by fear and ignorance;  something they try to push on us more. Yet, a bit like the homeopathic signals in your remedies they probably are here to highlight our own existing problem, one we have long forgotten about. We have become fearful and dis-empowered. This attack on our livelihood is only highlighting that to our own system.

It is an opportunity to become aware.

Stand up and do something about it.

That is what self-empowerment is all about
