There are many problems the American citizen faces. Corrupt bankers, the biased and systematically censored mass-media, resource robbing and profit seeking mega-corporations, the environment, the health care system, the prison system, the education system, the political system, and the list goes on and on. Yet, none of these systems are at the root of the problem. The overall system that controls these sub-systems is drastically failing and this is what mainstream media hides from you. That system is called “The Monetary System”. Private bankers and the elites control it; the people scream “give me justice” in agony and rage. Yet, these bankers are just like you and I - they are fallible human beings. Uncounted atrocities have been committed at the hands of these people and when one is deposed of another will step up to fill the space and the profiteering money machine marches on. Do not waste your time demanding justice... become a collective voice of real world solutions that are centered at the root of the problem.
Creating lasting solutions will only be possible when we understand what the root of the problem is. The problem isn’t money, but the monetary system itself. This system creates greed, fear and anxiety. It robs our natural resources, creates a profits over people mentality and for-profit prison systems. The social effects of the current monetary system discourages empathy and encourages separatism fueling the status quo. It sponsors the censorship of our mainstream media and gradually erodes our unalienable rights such as freedom of speech, right to assembly, affordable health-care, a quality education and so on. The issue is not the people whom control the system but the monetary system itself. If there are to be real and lasting effects the monetary system has to be radically changed.
In order to understand the problem, it’s important to have a basic overview of how the monetary system works.
First, we must understand that the monetary system is not operated by The Federal Government, but is privately owned and operated without regulation. This is critical for the agenda of the bankers, elite and mega corporations. This monetary system must radically change to serve humanity.
Second, we must understand how money works in the private sector. For example, let’s say you and I were the only two people in the world and there is only $100 in the economy. I have $80 and you have $20, and you want to buy something that costs $40. So, you borrow $20 and you have to pay me back $30 after interest. That would mean that there needs to be $110 in the economy, but...there isn’t. Where are you going to get that extra $10? You can’t and that makes you indebted to me. To put it simply, that is a form of slavery and oppression. Take a moment and view that on a global scale.
Third, we must understand the true purpose of money, which is to make the trading of goods and services easier and more efficient. That is how we clothe and feed ourselves, build homes, get educations and so on. However, due to extreme hoarding by the powerful elite and their anxiety to maintain power, the 99% find themselves controlled. Wars, oppression and tyranny are the inevitable results of the current monetary system’s psychological manipulation. Understanding this anxiety over loss of power is difficult because most of us don’t have that kind of money and power, but it is important to recognize.
Fourth, we must realize that the amount of money in the system is the most important factor in determining the health of an economy. If there is too much money there will be inflation/rising prices to allow that money into the system, and it also creates a less productive society because the need for productivity diminishes with increased wealth. If there is not enough money there will be deflation, recessions and depressions because there is not enough money to facilitate the trading of goods and services. This also leads to a decline in productivity and creates a psychological oppression on the individual attacking their purpose in society by taking away their jobs. The control of the amount of money in the system is critical to the success of an economy and ultimately society itself. Clearly, whomever controls the amount of money in the system controls society. In our current monetary system, humanity serves money when money should be a servant of humanity - not it’s master.
How can this change?
Of critical importance to the protection of liberty and our inalienable rights, is to remove control from the private sector. Abolish The Federal Reserve and set up a new monetary system that is truly democratic with it’s sole purpose being to serve The Republic of The United States of America.
How do we do that?
Put the control of money into the hands of Congress - our elected representatives. Make our monetary policy an open forum discussed on the floor of Congress. This would create a transparent monetary policy ridding itself of backroom secret meetings. We need to build a framework for monetary policy around the amount of money in the system. This framework should include the proportional relationship between the amount of money in the system and the size of the population, and inflation would represent the increase in the size of the population. For example, if the population grew 2.5% in one year, the amount of money would grow 2.5% to facilitate the continued trading of goods and services. There would never be a depression or recession like ones we have experienced in the past with this new monetary system because the amount of money in the system would be controlled by the people for the people. The role of Congress in managing the monetary policy would be one of their most treasured responsibilities to the American citizen who voted them into office. Politicians would now be elected because they truly represented the American people, not the bankers, elites, or mega corporations. Also, within this framework the government would issue debt free money with reasonable administrative fees attached, rather than skyrocketing interest that can never be repaid. This new process would be utilized to create a “Democratic Debt-Free Monetary System” - transparent, healthy and most importantly serving humanity.
This would only be the first - albeit giant - step forward in the march to a truly sustainable world. The continuation of a for-profit corporate system rapes the planet of it’s natural resources. Company Whomever manufactures whatevers and they will make more profits by building cheaper whatevers that need to be replaced more often. These materials then end up in waste dumps at an alarmingly increasing rate, therefore putting an increased demand on our natural resources. This system holds profits over sustainability and has spread throughout all industries. This produces cheap goods and unnecessary use of finite resources. We need to understand that there really are only a finite amount of natural resources on the planet, and we should use them wisely. We must build better and longer lasting products, develop new energy technologies, and manage our resources on a global scale - this is critical to the survival of humanity. How do we mange our finite natural resources? What an enormous question. I suggest a collective search for solutions. There is an idea called a “Resource Based Economy” and I encourage you to research it. We must protect our natural resources; using them wisely to produce the best, most durable goods the market will bear.
I challenge you to become Common Solutionists. A collective movement with all solutions admitted allowing the strongest ideas to rise to the top of the agenda list. This truly embodies what a Republic is all about.
Remember, The United States of America is a Republic...which means by our constitutional rights we the people have supreme control over our government. We have been given the “responsibility” to oversee our government. Each of us plays a vital role not only in the future of America but in the future of the world. America represents a nation of liberty and the world watches our example. The world hopes for us - even hopes for you the individual because each of us symbolizes hope for everyone. I encourage every American to assume their true responsibility to protect the Constitution and their Bill of Rights which our forefathers gave their lives for. There is a root to the problems that America and the entire world encounters. It is not the bankers, the political system, the mass media and the mega corporations. It is the monetary system. If you seek real and lasting change, you must root out the source of the issues. Do not waste your time attacking the symptoms the current monetary system creates. Change the source of the problem to create the conditions you want. Inalienable rights such as fresh water, air, freedom of speech, the right to assemble, uncensored media and affordable health care would be protected and flourishing under a Democratic Debt-Free Monetary System.
Here is what you can do to help restore democracy and your inalienable rights.
Spread the word. Let others know about this in your community and how it affects everyone. Reach out to celebrities, bloggers and other media outlets.
Stop watching mainstream media. They do not have your interests at heart. They are owned and operated by the system. If viewership were to drop drastically it would put tons of ad sponsorship pressure on these outlets to begin coverage of this demonstration.
Remove your money from the big banks and place it in your local credit union. This will protect your money and place pressure on new legislation for the banking system. Such as radical changes to the fractional reserve lending system which creates astronomically gross inflation.
Occupy your homes. Stay. Get your local government involved.
Write your representative of Congress. Get together petitions. A few honorable representatives speaking on the floor of Congress will grow the governments awareness.
Recognize your responsibility as a citizen of The United States of America. You are responsible for the conduct of your government. Choose your elected officials wisely not through mainstream smoke and mirrors. Demand transparency from your government. Become active.
