George Carlin once reduced the Ten Commandments to two key concepts:
1) Thou shalt always be honorable and faithful to the provider of thy nookie.
2) Thou shalt try real hard not to kill anyone, unless, of course, they pray to a different invisible man to the one you pray to.
Jesus got it down to one, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”
When you purchase a board game from Wal-Mart, you expect the rules to be comprehensible and fair.
Imagine playing a game where you always lose. Oh, wait. Never mind.
So, how are you today? Feeling pleasant? Slightly uncomfortable, perhaps?
It is absolutely incomprehensible how many laws people are required to follow. What is the point of so many laws? Once, ten was more than enough. Why do we now need millions?
How many ways can We The People be outraged? Laws react to outrageous conduct. Regulations aren't laws – if you want to count regulations as laws I suppose we face billions. Nearly everybody regulates something. Almost all regulation/law is blatantly unconstitutional – but who cares? They are enforced.
So many laws lead to so many interpretations that anything can be legal if you're connected. You know who's connected because they have investments. Investors may not run this place but they have a working relationship with those who do. The boys at the top spread a piece of the action around.
Instead of complicating our societal rules, we should be simplifying them. We shouldn't have to ask some lawyer for legal advice every time we want to spit downwind. We should be able to defend ourselves in a court of law. There can't be more than a handful of base crimes.
Ten laws would be too many for a just society. Jesus' one rule can be translated as “Don't cheat.” Almost every law that exists came into being because someone cheated. We should just determine whether something is a cheat and if so penalize the cheater – penalty to vary with severity.
Current society only accepts the law, “Get it in writing.” Contract law. How the contract was coerced is hardly consequential. Naturally, money power dominates all contracts. In truth, most current contracts would be invalid in a society that values fairness. Fairness is what is missing from our lives.
Agreements can be forced, but fairness will always be objective (or it's not fair.)

So, who are they? You know who they are. If you don't know who they are then you aren't one of them.
These guys are really bad. They are capable of doing anything, just ask Wendell Berry. They take the tops right of off mountains. They bankrupt entire nations.
They have bought enough of the world to make sure the rest is owed to them.
Of course, they're robbing us blind. We step in more evidence of their corruption each day.
Yes, there is a conspiracy and it's about more than just your money. They want to control your lives. Do you wonder why there are so many laws when ten once seemed like a lot? The law is there to protect the investments of the moneyed class.
There are only two classes of society in America, the investment class and everybody else.
The ruling class designed the economic game we're all playing. They made the rules and they enforce them. They claim the people gave up sovereign money by Act of Congress, forgetting who afforded congress such a privilege. Don't bother asking the Supreme Court to overturn the law.
Moneychanging is an ancient swindle but these guys have perfected the art.

Forbes magazine founder Bertie Charles Forbes describes the conspiratorial nature of the secret meeting on Jekyll Island in 1910:
Here is the real conspiracy, folks.
Picture a party of the nation’s greatest bankers stealing out of New York on a private railroad car under cover of darkness, stealthily riding hundred of miles South, embarking on a mysterious launch, sneaking onto an island deserted by all but a few servants, living there a full week under such rigid secrecy that the names of not one of them was once mentioned, lest the servants learn the identity and disclose to the world this strangest, most secret expedition in the history of American finance. I am not romancing; I am giving to the world, for the first time, the real story of how the famous Aldrich currency report, the foundation of our new currency system, was written… The utmost secrecy was enjoined upon all. The public must not glean a hint of what was to be done. Senator Aldrich notified each one to go quietly into a private car of which the railroad had received orders to draw up on an unfrequented platform. Off the party set. New York’s ubiquitous reporters had been foiled… Nelson (Aldrich) had confided to Henry, Frank, Paul and Piatt that he was to keep them locked up at Jekyll Island, out of the rest of the world, until they had evolved and compiled a scientific currency system for the United States, the real birth of the present Federal Reserve System, the plan done on Jekyll Island in the conference with Paul, Frank and Henry… Warburg is the link that binds the Aldrich system and the present system together. He more than any one man has made the system possible as a working reality.
Griffin does a fine job exposing the cabal, but believes gold is money.

The safest investment extracts profit directly from taxes. These people don't know how to earn money, so they just legally steal it. They borrow money from "us" for virtually nothing and then trade that scrip for our obligation to pay them back at interest. What outrageous theft! Are we renting our own chains from our masters? They get the profit and we get the payments. What honest government would allow this? Our government should just counterfeit the money directly at lower cost if it wants to bolster inflation, or we could borrow money from ourselves since we're the ones always stuck paying it back, anyway. Imagine not paying interest, I wonder if you can.
You are a slave being milked dry by your "betters." They know what's good for you and will tell you so.
Imagine what 14 Trillion dollars would have built if we had an honest government. Imagine how many jobs fourteen trillion dollars would create. They have spent far more than $14T, I think.
But we can't even audit the Federal Reserve or Fort Knox so how will we ever know how much money has been promised for the banks. It's all promises, of course. No one has that much money.
If you would like to avoid the coming chaotic collapse, perhaps you can reason out Mathematically Perfected Economy(TM) while there is still time.

This video was broadcast in July of 2009 -- About 1 1/2 years ago. What has changed?
The thing I'd like you to take away from this is that the banks traded junk for $14 trillion dollars. They've traded more junk since then and plan to trade another trillion or so beginning the day after the elections. Still, main stream media claims we'll somehow "profit" from bailouts!
As shocking as this video is, keep in mind that EVERYTHING the bank loans is stolen money. EVERYTHING is a fraud, not just what you see on the news. Your money is fraudulent, your government is fraudulent and your media lies (even when appearing to tell the truth.) Everything is a lie.
I keep saying it starts with the way they create money. Banks don't work for the money they loan you, they just create it out of thin air. How do you lose money on a deal like that? In their greed, they found a way.
What is described in the video is only the tip of the iceberg.
My God, people, wake up! You live on table scraps! No one need starve, no one need lose their home and no one need work past forty.

No two people conceive of God in quite the same way so let's just call me Agnostic for now.
I was raised a Southern Baptist, but strayed at an early age when He didn't answer my prayers.
Most of what I pray for doesn't really matter anyway – not as long as we legalize cheating in so many ways. I define usury as using people (or their possessions) beyond a fair agreement. What this means is usury is cheating and cheating is stealing. Stealing is universally condemned, but usury is OK?
Lately, I've prayed the public will recognize the tyranny of the bankers. More people are understanding their slavery and some even have a clue how it was accomplished. The brainwashing was effective, the people live in fear – Bernays would delight in modern programming!
The only thing I really learned in Bible Study was that the New Testament outranks the Old Testament (because it's new and improved!) and that the Golden Rule is what to live by. The rest I question.
“Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” is not found in the Bible, exactly. Nothing in the Bible is exactly exact, anyway. There are a number of wonderful tales of miraculous events but the closest translation for the Golden Rule is Luke 6:31. : "And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise." KJV (Your online PHD in Theocracy is now complete.)
It is fairness, after all, that is missing from our system. The treatment you receive in court is directly proportional to how much money you are willing to spend to defend yourself. It gets expensive, quick. Most people go unrepresented and the system takes full advantage of that to squeeze them a little more.
The psychopaths in charge (PCs?) have created an economy that only they can survive. The rest of us will land on Boardwalk, eventually. These guys aren't just skimming the betting pool, they're sucking it all straight to the top. They are drinking our milkshakes.
You must understand that they spend vast quantities of their ill-gotten wealth just to maintain the status quo. Governing the world is an expensive undertaking. The current model is financially bankrupt and something will have to be done soon to avoid chaos and bloodshed.
Costs are rising as inflation roars. Everybody owes everyone everything but nobody has any money left. The bankers took it all and spent what they didn't spill to make sure the rest of us provide them a comfortable investment stream.
The usual way out of a financial mess like this is to go to war, preferably against the creditor nation. Any nation will suffice, actually, and lucky for us we have several from which to choose. Of course we're already at war here and there so escalation is likely just a matter of time.
Our owners have been draining the military keg on a drunken binge that has sauntered through decades of horrific bloodletting. Well over one hundred million people were killed by war in the last century. There is no formula to estimate the total impact of war.
There is another golden rule: “He who has the gold makes the rules.” That's real life, buddy. Who butters your toast? What puts food on your family? Dig that ditch. Lick my boots. Don't look at me.
Luke 6:31 isn't the only scripture that applies, check out Matthew 7:12: “Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets. “ KJV (translation: The Golden Rule is all you need to know.)

Did anyone else notice that when the banks went bankrupt, the bankers didn’t?
Banks have usurped the right of the people themselves to control their own money. Money should be created interest-free and loaned on good credit against adequate collateral. Loans should be repaid over the working life of the collateral, with installment payments destroyed (not pocketed.)
Who would make such loans? The people, of course — that’s what the power to create money is really all about. If a loan can be repaid, it should be lent.
Create money against collateral (backing) and destroy money as collateral deteriorates. Do this without interest (or other cheating/usury) and inflation is mathematically impossible. Google Mathematically Perfected Economy.
I recommend everyone ask any candidate for public office where they stand on the usurpation of money by central bankers. In the US, you should remind any candidate for your state legislature that they have the power to request a Constitutional Convention under Article 5 of the Constitution:
“The Congress, whenever two thirds of both Houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose Amendments to this Constitution, or, on the Application of the Legislatures of two thirds of the several States, shall call a Convention for proposing Amendments, which, in either Case, shall be valid to all Intents and Purposes, as part of this Constitution, when ratified by the Legislatures of three fourths of the several States, or by Conventions in three fourths thereof, as the one or the other Mode of Ratification may be proposed by the Congress; Provided that no Amendment which may be made prior to the Year One thousand eight hundred and eight shall in any Manner affect the first and fourth Clauses in the Ninth Section of the first Article; and that no State, without its Consent, shall be deprived of its equal Suffrage in the Senate.”
Only the Congressional method has ever been used. Note that not only can states call for a convention, they can ratify in separate conventions. Unfortunately, the power to actually CALL a Constitutional Convention was given to Congress — and they have never done so despite valid requests and wording that says they SHALL.

When you borrow money for a house, where does the money come from?
If you haven't already learned that bankers create the money they lend you out of thin air (tied to their reserves) you can take my word for it and move on or come back later when you've caught up.
Let's say you're interested in a fairly nice house in Stockton, California for $100K. According to some random lending website you can finance just such an investment for a mere $1150 a month over thirty years. That seems pretty high to me.
Creating money out of thin air against your good credit is one thing. How else do you create money except out of thin air? It doesn't grow on trees. You can't dig it out of the ground. You can scrounge stuff together and trade it in for money but in the end it's just stuff. Stuff isn't money, it's stuff.
Money measures the value of stuff. At least that's the theory. Stuff has value in a free market.
When the bank creates $100K and you give it to the seller of the house, you don't owe the seller anymore but you owe the bank something like $1150 a month for thirty years. You have a mortgage.
“Mort gage” is pseudo French for “death wager.”
As soon as the ink in your signature dries, the bank creates one hundred thousand dollars that never existed before you had the nerve to ask for it. It was created entirely (almost) out of your good credit.
The bank lends you money it doesn't have based on your ability to repay it. Then they charge interest.
Let that sink in. Banks charge interest on money they never earned. Plus, they keep the money.
What has backed the value of our money since Richard M. Nixon took us off the Gold Standard in 1971? Since 97% of money is now created by banks in the form of loans, our money is supposedly backed by the value of the collateral backing those loans.
The trouble is, the banks just keep all of the money they receive as loan payments. They keep it and spend it. All that money you give to repay your loans is never destroyed. Great Grandpa's house that fell down still has all of the money created to build it in circulation. Nothing backs that money.
Money created must be destroyed.
If you've followed along so far, I'm sure you understand why the world is bankrupt. Such massive cheating can only end badly. Only the richness of the natural world has disguised this madness so far. As long as material wealth could be extracted somewhere and somehow, it made up for most of the cheaters skimming all the wealth. You've seen how extravagantly the elite live. A few feast while the rest starve.
Shall we let people loan our own credit to us at interest knowing that their usury is the reason the world is bankrupt? The notion is preposterous to me. I can't imagine a legitimate government allowing such theft. American money was supposed to be controlled by Congress and Congress supposed to be controlled by the people themselves. Constitutional arguments might not be enough against psychos.
Or we can let it lie. Lay there and take it. That's just the way it is. You can't beat City Hall.
Face up to it. You're being cheated. The banks are stealing your money. They are feeding you table scraps when you should be feasting from your efforts.
The funny thing here of course, is that if the world outlawed interest everyone's standard of living would go up – including bankers – by a factor of ten. Without usury, a man is left to invest in Enterprise.

125 banks have gone belly up so far this year.
I think it's astounding that any bank could possibly ever go broke. In a usury-free world, this would never happen.
Imagine that through some freak accident of DNA mutation caused by genetically modified food, I suddenly transformed into a banker.
Banks are authorized by our government to create new money in digital form. They can't actually print money, but bills and coins make up only 3% of "money" today. The rest of our money exists only as numbers inside banking system computers.
When someone takes a home loan at my bank, I get title to his house until he pays off the loan. If he stops paying me, I take his house, sell it and keep all the money up to whatever he owes.
Even if I don't charge interest, the payment of principle alone is all profit for me. I didn't really work for the money I loaned out, the government just let me create it! Easy money.
Every aspect of the loan has been verified, insured and even federally garuanteed. I get risk-free profit from this deal for years to come. What a great job!
The trouble comes from charging interest.
If a house is worth $100,000 and a bank creates $100,000 out of thin air against it, everything is in balance. There is enough money put into the world to make all of the payments on the loan. Debits and credits are in balance.
When a bank charges interest, they demand more money than they create, causing an imbalance in the money supply. More money is owed than exists. Eventually, someone comes up short and can't pay. The more money is lent at interest, the harder it is for customers to make payments.
My own greed to charge interest on money that was never really mine to start with (multiplied of course by all the other bankers doing the same thing) is what will eventually kill my bank. Suddenly, the money doesn't look so easy.
When a bank charges interest on a loan, they are charging more for something than it is worth. They can do this by colluding to set minimum interest rates -- making it impossible for a free market system to ever work. They doom themselves to fail.
The US government doesn't help the situation by making stupid rules such as the "Applicable Federal Rates."
There is a bitter irony to the banker's situation, isn't there? It would be funny except for the "too big to fail" idea that pushes unpaid debt onto taxpayer accounts.
Until banks figure out they are drinking their own poison, expect an endless stream of bank closures.
(I do NOT endorse the usury promoted by Dr. Rose.)
Please ignore the conclusion in the above video that fractional lending is the cause of inflation.
In reality, there is no reason for any reserve at all. The only limit to the creation of debt is the existence of credit.
As for David Icke's video at the top, he's pretty much spot on. Only small banks are failing, and they are being gobbled up by the elite banking families at the top of the money pyramid.
Wednesday, July 28, 2010
When a loan is created out of thin air, the money does not exist until the ink dries on a loan contract. Such money has not been earned by anyone, yet. It cannot exist until the borrower proves it can be repaid. Money, therefore, is created by debt authorized by credit that will be made good through work.
You might say, “Money is sweat.” I think bankers should be damned glad other people do all the real work for their pay! Bankers live on the sweat of those not born into wealth.
Unearned taking is usury. Usury is cheating. Nobody likes a cheater.

Even if all of the money loaned interest free was consumed in one giant orgy of unnatural spending – one big party for everybody – it would still better than what we have today. At least we won't owe interest on money someone else drank up. The bankers, drunk with power, gambled and lost trillions (to each other.) Theirs is truly a hard act to follow. Their debacle is so staggering it beggars belief.
Once interest is outlawed and MPE(tm) implemented, future budgets can be forecast with great accuracy. How much will a ton of steel cost in ten years? Under the Federal Reserve, who knows? You can safely bet it will cost more, perhaps double or more what it costs today. Wouldn't it be nice to know that inflation does not exist? Perhaps the price of steel will be double in ten years, but it would only be likely if there were a lot of steel projects underway. Under MPE(tm) you can expect massive fair market activity so market shortages are bound to occur until society ramps up production to meet massive demand. Once there is no shortage of money, there will be no shortage of jobs (that pay.)
A perfect economy is only the beginning of the benefits of usury free living. With full employment (there will be more jobs than workers,) poverty will eventually disappear from America. There will be no renters since everyone will be able to afford a home.
By printing and distributing our own debt money without interest, the US will shake off the monetary yoke that now guides our foreign policy. Our county will be able to act in the best interests of its citizens instead of following the banker's playbook.
Realizing they no longer must kowtow to money, perhaps even the politicians will become less corrupt.
Not everything will be fixed by eliminating interest, and some things will take time to work out. On the whole, MPE(tm) would be a great improvement over the present situation.

As you probably know, Islam forbids usury. The Muslims have worked out a sophisticated banking system that does not directly charge interest, but as I've repeatedly reminded people, usury is much more than simple interest. The Muslim bankers still collect obscene “profits.”
The Catholics forbade usury for hundreds of years. They looked the other way though when Catholics dealt with moneylenders of other religious persuasions. Strange that every one of the three big religions once had a very low opinion of lending money at interest. Remember, this was in times before fractional banking -- they prohibited taking interest on "hard" money.
The bottom line is, for whatever reason, the major religions all once agreed that cheating people is not a good idea – to some extent, they still do. The mainstream view today, however, is that charging interest on a loan isn't really cheating. I wonder if God has switched to the mainstream view?
Anyway, I'll bet that usury is still a bit of a sore subject for most religious believers. Maybe they think it's wrong, somehow, but everyone does it anyway. Asking for interest is just a little sin, at worst, isn't it?
I can't speak for most religions, but I was nearly successfully brainwashed by the Southern Baptists. I learned that after Armageddon, a giant Jesus on a white horse and carrying a flaming sword, would descend from the clouds and bring us all peace at last.
The Southern Baptists taught me a lot of strange things, but the strangest was that to correctly interpret the word of God, you have to be a “believer.” They talk a lot about Jesus, but I think they missed His point completely.
According to my Sunday School teachers, Jesus was sent on a mission from God as a the final required blood sacrifice to save us from our sins. This should have come as good news for sheep. But if dying for our sins was all Jesus came for, He could have easily done so without drawing so much attention to Himself. You might argue that Jesus had to be famous or no one would hear of Him, but hearing of Him wasn't required if His only mission here were to die.
The Baptists tried to confuse me with stories out of the Old Testament (before Jesus) but I didn't buy any of it once they let slip that Jesus' real message, the point of His entire life, was to illustrate the effectiveness of the Golden Rule. He who has the gold rules. No, wait, it was “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” Play fair. That's all He really said, and for that He was crucified.
Some people will argue that Jesus said more like,”Play fair 'cause God said so,” but whatever.
Anyway, my point is that there is a compelling religious argument against usury. If someone joins the movement to end usury for religious reasons, I would welcome them. Religious belief alone is not sufficient reason to ban anything is it? Let's ban usury out of good common sense.
Usury is cheating. There is a whole lot of cheating going on today. Most cheating has been so institutionalized that it is not only legal, but morally acceptable to most people. Poor people have become so accustomed to being cheated, that they just shrug and say the world isn't fair. What can you do, after all, when everybody is cheating you from every direction? Is it surprising that some people decide to cheat right back? As a former Marine, I know what payback is.
So, the religious connotation to calling for zero interest rates for all people is palpable. The topic is unavoidable so it must be discussed. The major religions have systematically fallen to the delight of usury. It's human nature to want to get one over on the other guy, isn't it? A predatory attitude is a profitable perspective, it's just good business. A little corruption erodes at integrity until there is a gaping hole in the middle of our economy. Thirty percent interest rates used to land people in prison.
My call for zero interest rates for all isn't based on any religious beliefs I may or may not have, but simply an acknowledgment that charging interest is the root cause of inflation and inflation is bad. Mathematically Perfected Economy(TM) requires zero interest to work. MPE(TM) is an important concept in a truly free society. I do wish they'd drop the TM, though...
We must free our money from the grasp of those who would control us through finance. Money measures wealth, and true wealth comes from work. American money should be created by Americans, for Americans to use in their pursuit of life, liberty and happiness. The way money is currently doled out by foreigners (the City) means Americans perform services that mostly benefits the status quo.
The way things are, money only appears where “they” want it to appear. For example, despite our current depression, I understand the military is still hiring. Government contracts out work, and sometimes that is the most efficient way to use the funds. Sometimes, government work actually improves our lives. Money well spent – almost makes up for the other 99% of money being wasted.
Our banking system makes a boatload of money for the bankers and generates a lot of cash flow for politicians. The debt has built up for years and now we're having trouble keeping up the payments. You can go into the technical details, but rest assured once you penetrate the purposeful obfuscation your gut feeling will be that you're being “used.” The bankers use the government to enforce usury. It's not fair, but that's the way it is. Isn't it time we square things up? Who should control American money?
Everybody understands something evil is running the world, and I've just explained who is doing the running of said world. The banker's power come from usury – it is how they fund the entire, corrupt system. Outlawing usury would end many of our world's problems.
I believe that a man has an inalienable right to the profit of his own work. Whatever you can accumulate in wealth without infringing upon others rights is OK, by me. I see nothing wrong with a world where some people are rich and others poor(er.) We may have equal rights, but we have different abilities and should be rewarded for extra effort. A working man is as entitled to his profit just the same as anyone else, including bankers.
I said earlier that money is work. I'm sure a lot of people pointed and cried,”Money is debt! I saw it on YouTube!” Now, what is debt? How did you create the debt? What are you going to have to do to fulfill your debt? A few of you have enough money not to work to pay your debts, but that money will cause someone else to work somehow, it always does. Money is work. Money directs work.
Viewing money as work explains why all those rich people keep trying to get richer despite having more money than they could ever spend. Control the productive output of society and you control where society is headed. Hire more police, fund more lawyers or research face-recognition software.
Realistically, I don't expect to convince very many people to demand zero interest loans just like those given to Ben Bernanke (except, of course, limited by real credit and collateral. Ben's just stealing.) But I'd like to plant a seed of thought that might germinate in the heat of financial conflagration.
Even the most ardent usurer must today agree that the system we live under is near collapse, the signs are there for all to see. There is a lot of work that needs to be done, but no money to pay for it. Roads and bridges and sewer systems are less important than the banker's bottomless pockets.
Something is about to change, I can feel it and I don't think it's going to be pretty. I think it is my duty to point out that “usury kills” so that it is clear what to expect from usurers (including governments.) Once the smoke clears, instead of a reset of debt followed by more usury, maybe we can finally break free of this cycle of madness. A handful of thoughtful laws that really stop cheaters would be infinitely preferable to the legal labyrinth that today enables a small group of people to use everyone else.
Don't stop using people because God forbade usury, just start legalizing fairness. The world needn't be unfair. Civil people shouldn't tolerate usury. Let's start by outlawing interest payments and work our way toward enlarging fine print.
One last point here, seemingly completely unrelated, is the controversy over abortion. Abortion is a wedge issue used to divide people on other issues. Nobody likes abortion. Maybe it should be illegal, but then what to do with all those orphans? Let's work this one out after we fix our money. One of the biggest arguments in favor of abortion is that children are expensive, after all. MPE(tm) will make everything more affordable, including children. With real money, life in general will become more pleasurable, so why not invite others to enjoy it?
In closing, let me say clearly that I am not a Jesus Freak. I would like to believe in God, but I don't.
I like the Golden Rule, whoever invented it. It's pretty simple: No one likes being ripped off.

bankers didn't? The guys that ran the banks were all rich. Only
their banks were broke. Poor little broken banks.
If the banks fail, the whole system fails. There would be
chaos, madness, blood in the streets! Cable bills would go
unpaid -- the internet would stop working! Now I've got you.
So we paid trillions of dollars to avoid martial law by bailing
out the banks. It was worth it.
We saved jobs. Banking jobs. High paying jobs.
What's a banker's job, anyway? Making money? Is that too
general? We all make money, right? Banks don't make money, they
print it. They print it up, loan it out and get rich off of all
that interest. They can do that. How do you go broke doing
that? I mean, it's counterfeiting if you try it folks.
It's worse than counterfeiting. They're printing money and
charging interest, too. And if you can't pay them back, they
take your fucking house. No shit. Nice work if you can get it.
Everybody complains about bankers but no one ever becomes one
by accident. An education in economics is recommended, at least
for appearances. The biggest bankers are groomed for the job as
children -- if they don't pan out, they can always enter
Anyway, just so you know, the bailout wasn't big enough. The
bankers seriously misunderestimated how much they actually owe
each another. Things are worse than ever but another trillion
or two should keep the chaos down to a small roar.

Everybody owes everyone everything. World-wide debt is destroying all we know.
I believe there is an answer, but it means thinking outside the box. We have to realize that money is not what we have been taught money is. Money isn't something "they" have and "we" must borrow. Money isn't even "debt" as so many have finally "learned."
Money, really, is the manifestation of credit. Think...
All we hear, is there isn't enough money. There's no money for anything EXCEPT interest payments.
Go to www.perfecteconomy.com and start reading. Money is infinite, as long as there is credit. As long as the circulation is equal to remaining debt, everything is in balance with no inflation or deflation.
Mike Montagne's concept of Mathematically Perfected Economy(tm) will solve 90% of the world's economic problems, I believe. Unfortunately, it has been ignored for over 30 years despite the fact that Mike has sent a package explaining it to every single President from Reagan (and most candidates.)
The argument against the idea is mostly rooted in the fact that people have been taught that interest on investment is the way to "business."
Money is like a ruler or a scale, it measures wealth but holds no wealth itself except by fiat. Paper money is no more intrinsically valuable than seashells or notches on a stick.
MPE(tm) is the only proven solution to inflation. Our most basic problem is simply cheating. The key to MPE(tm) is the elimination of interest. Interest is usury. Usury is defined as excessive interest, today, but was archaically defined as ANY interest. Honestly, usury is any unearned taking or CHEATING.
The last guy that asked we stop cheating was reportedly crucified. Big future for me, eh?
I am not a Muslim. I am not a Christian. I am not a tree-hugging, liberal communist. I am just sick of being used.
I, for one, will trade 1% interest on savings to eliminate 30% interest on credit cards (and buying two houses to live in one.)
Please study Mike's site and give it your best evaluation. There are several groups encouraging we end the FED, but most only compromise on interest rates while missing the point that the people's credit belongs to the people themselves. Why have someone rent us what we already own?
End the Coup of 1913...

Usury isn't just about money – it is any unearned taking. Usury is unfairness.
Nobody likes to be cheated, but we all are cheated every day and write off the experience as just the way the world works. Life is unfair. You can't fight city hall. Buyer beware. Tough cookies.
Why is there fine print in a contract? What about those quick disclaimers and voice unders?
If the United States projects military power to protect “our way of life,” is that usury? Don't ask me, ask the people of the countries we occupy.
Usury is any unfair dealing. If you think that contract you just signed was more favorable to the other party, then you just got “used.” Did you enjoy being used? Is usury the American way? Should we really be proud of this?
The average person is nearly used up. Governments and big corporations are expert at unearned taking.
Yes, usury is cheating – it is violation of the Golden Rule.
At its mildest, usury is an affront to civilization. At its worst, usury kills.
