Debt is Slavery, Money is Debt

The fractional reserve monetary system is the wellspring of many sinister conspiracy theories. However, the simple truth of how the world economy functions is as real as the air you breathe. It’s important to understand the nature of the engine that drives of daily lives.  Attribute to it whatever folktale you wish to help your mind come to terms with the realty: shadow gov’ts, new world order, reptilian overlords, whatever. Our economy is only sustainable by perpetual exponential growth. This is growth is arguably responsible for global warming, war, pestilence and famine. It is the beast upon which the four horsemen of the apocalypse ride (sorry to go biblical, couldn’t resist). The current monetary system enslaves us all, turning the people of the world into parasites, instead of caretakers, of the Earth. The inequities created by this system pits brother against brother, makes kings of immoral men, and averts governments away from the pleas of it’s peoples. Unfortunately, we must continue to feed this growth or else our economy will crash and cause much suffering. We are slaves to it. However, if we continue on this path, it will lead to our collective destruction. This is the essence of the apocalypse myth. It has happened to many nations and empires in the past. Humanity has yet to learn the harsh lessons of our history… blah blah blah…Anyways, whenever I attempt to explain, with my limited knowledge, the financial situation we face, I always end up sounding like a raving lunatic. I take comfort in learning there are many other lunatics in the world who are raising their voices in hopes of positive change. The following is a video called “Money As Debt” by Paul Grignon that explains our current banking system in easy to understand terms.  For further discussions on the coming collapse of the US economy read this article from Rick Falkvinge of the Pirate Party.http://www.falkvinge.com/2008/03/why-us-is-collapsing.html
