Christian Religion says,
“The love of money is the root of all evil”
I have to give credit where credit is due – they got this one right!
Trace all crimes or ills of society to the root cause and you will arrive at money. The person who steals something, why does he steal? Because he does not have the money to purchase it, or he can sellnsten goods at a higher price.
If someone is homeless, why is he homeless? Because he doesn’t have the money to pay for a roof over his head.
Money, at its very basic level, creates the perception of scarcity where it doesn’t exist. By setting a value of an item at a certain monetary amount, those that do not have that monetary amount can’t get that item. So, by setting the value high enough, those setting the value can control those who do not have that amount. The perception is that the value is set high because of the sacred cow “Supply And Demand”.
Supply and demand is a pile of shit. Values are set based solely on the ability to control a certain section of the community/society.
Scarcity is contrived and manufactured.
Scarcity is created so that society can be controlled. However, the concept is far from perfect. When something of necessity is placed just out of reach of those that need it, far too often they resort to criminal activity to acquire that item.
Furthermore, money, itself, is a contrived and manufactured concept set to control society. In history, money was issued and values set by a single person, the King, of a certain area. Again, totally according to the need to control his subjects. As the concept developed, it has morphed into a clearly accepted foregone conclusion of life.
In modern times, there are institutions in most countries that control and issue monies and set their values. The Fiat Monetary System has become accepted fact. Frankly speaking, money today is worth no more than the value of the materials used to manufacture the physical money. However, the Fiat system allows for institutionalized manipulation of worthless monies to inflate or devalue at whim, in order to, once again, control society at large.
To those of you that think the Governments of Nations around the world are in control of anything – THINK AGAIN! The real power resides, not in governments, but in the heads of those institutions that control the Fiat Monetary Systems of the planet. These institutions issue the money to the governments, as a loan, in order to fund the operations these governments undertake. However, at any given moment, these institutions can call due those loans, and thus, immediately bankrupt the governments. This is unlikely to happen, simply because the governments very well understand the situation they are in and will do nothing to go against the wishes of these institutions.
Now, before you start thinking I’m just trying to scare you, let me assure you that this monetary control of society IS collapsing in on itself. Governments are putting out stories of recovery and such, but don’t be fooled – they don’t have any better idea of what they are doing now than they did before. The cycle of growth then collapse can only sustain itself for so long, and the swings on either side are getting more pronounced.
Once the system collapses, then society will be free to pick itself by its bootstraps and create a new system that actually works and benefits everyone. A new Resource Based Economy will have the opportunity to bloom and flourish and humanity will blossom like has never before been seen in human history.
Now, those in charge of these institutions will fight their collapse at every turn. And, yes, there will be struggle as the collapse happens and as we pick up the pieces after it does happen. However, what emerges will be far better and truly a fairer system than has ever existed before.
PS – I TOTALLY understand that until the new system is allowed to develop and flourish, we all must survive in the current system and operate by its rules. Unfortunately this is true, but I get it. I also realize this is a rather simplistic and short post for such a large subject. There is enough information on this subject to produce a plethora (I really like that word) of posts.
