"If you do not agree with my reply above re the Conglomerate and its capabilities (solution superiority), let's discuss. As a supporter of the movement, as someone with an open mind who seeks the best solutions, you are obligated to. Are you not?"

Tell me why you are not enticed by the opportunity to be a part of this!

I still say; print your own cash (the North Korean govt prints greenbacks, and so does the unbridled fed reserve), so what's stopping you?

I'm not saying counterfeit cash, I'm saying your own recognisable exchange note, valid for swap/barter/exchange, and redeemable for greenbacks if you need to pay other bills.

Many people have had this idea for a long time. Sounds great. Impossible though.

Say I whip out my printer and spend a thousand dollars printing a ton of bills in different denominations. Then you and your friends do it too. You think I would sell you my pet rock for all that paper? Not likely.

You might have some luck if you can convince really wealthy people... people in the 1% could MAYBE pull this one off.

I've posted this before, Kavatz.

For users such as Ioanitou, the currency – a form of community banking monitored exclusively online – is not only an effective antidote to wage cuts and soaring taxes but the "best kind of shopping therapy". "One Tem is the equivalent of one euro. My oil and soap came to 70 Tem and with that I bought oranges, pies, napkins, cleaning products and Christmas decorations," said the mother-of-five. "I've got 30 Tem left over. For women, who are worst affected by unemployment, and don't have kafeneia [coffeehouses] to go to like men, it's like belonging to a hugely supportive association."

Thanks very much for the link, I find that very encouraging! How hard will it be though to cheat that system? There must be an easy way, or what am I missing? What will people do if the power goes out?

In a lot of the Alternative Radio shows I've heard, the inspiring speakers share examples of similar efforts.

I'd like to find a way to contact these entrepreneurs and convince them to start 99% Conglomerate Subsidiaries. They'd be able to start exporting and maybe their currency could spread internationally.

I'll have to read more on it and get ideas, as the link is limited, as nice as it is to read. Surely there is one organization hosting the website at which the credit system is monitored. Maybe that entity is a viable subsidiary too.

I think local currencies are great, but still inferior to the 99% Conglomerate as a total solution, as they are very unlikely to permeate markets beyond local.

It was quite interesting reading through some of the comments people made on the article. I'll hopefully get back to it.

Found this interesting, from the comments on that site, Kavatz.

@epinoa - fiat currency pre-dates Law by a couple of thousand years. Roman coins (e.g.)started off at 100% gold or silver and finished up at 1%. It's a terrible indictment of the central banks and globalist tamperers that people have to abandon the official currency for their own. Barter systems are always poverty-stricken because the exchange isn't flexible or efficient enough but as someone pointed out this isn't barter -- it's just an unofficial currency. How I'd love to deal in an unofficial currency and bypass our dictators but it won't happen. Any threat to their control and they'd make such a currency illegal. Half the wars you can name since 1700 were fought over the right to print money

I glanced at that too. I know some history on fiat, and was thinking how epinoa's (I think it was that person's) comment was flawed.

The only real money is gold and silver... the rest is fiat. Actually pretty much all currency around the world is fiat, since the value is based on US's fiat.

Something interesting I read too is that the value of gold throughout history was on average 12x more than silver because there was on average 12x more silver produced. I'm pretty sure these days silver should be more valuable than gold since it's used in manufacturing so much, can't be recovered easily so is spread out in landfills, and governments have depleted their stockpiles of it. The value is low because of manipulation by TPTB and the foolish public's perceptions.

Australia and Afghanistan will be the next resource digs for all kinds of mineral "wealth". Lead and gold share all the same properties, except for colour.

The price for a diamond has been manipulated by one group of one-percenters for so long now, most people believe that they've paid a fair price for a rock.

What price freedom? is my call. To play the game in our cut-throat commercialised consumer-driven 1%er playground, we need a measure of NPD ruthless greed-driven animalism. I'd prefer battle-axes and broad-swords to the current farcical pretence and civility.
