the great deception ~ money  jason  7 Mar 13 9:50AM Thread Closed

money is not real. it is a scheme developed by governments to exercise control over the masses. (as is religion but i will post on that another day).

for now, take out any tangible money you have in your purse and wallet and have a look at it? what value does it have and how is that value determined? the value used to be determined by how much gold it could buy, but in 1971, richard nixon introduced the 'fiat currency' that stripped away the gold standard and now the value of money is determined by the government. now money only buys what you as a consumer are willing to pay for your products. the value you place on something is set by how much money you have and also by how much inflation affects the cost of living.

now let me ask you a question. what happens when you get paid? does actual notes get paid into your account by your employer? of course it doesnt. at some regional head quarters there will be transaction that will take place but at your local branch, numbers are merely entered into a database and money is created out of nothing.

if everybody wanted to draw their salaries all at once from their local bank, there would not be enough in the vault to honour everyone. banks are set up and work only on the possibility and hope that there would not be a run on the banks. if there WAS a run on the banks. they would be unable to honour the requests.

banks create false money and lend it to the customers so that the customers can then feel richer and so have more money to spend which in turn allows products to be bought. as more products are created and sold, company executives raise prices to keep abreast of the cost of depleting natural resources needed to produce the products which in turn causes inflation to rise and governments to increase taxes and so spend less and less on helping their citizens live comfortable lives.

and as more natural resources are depleted, the world each day moves a step closer to ecological collapse.

but the economic collapse and a massive reduction in the population of the western world will happen long before that.

The answer to your question is that order to pay its customers such money on demand it would have to call in all its loans and mortgages to those people it supports.
Banks loan your money out in order to generate profit, only an idiot and dole scrounger like you would expect them to give a banking service for nothing.

Mercury retrograde -- the Great Emancipation from our own outward-focused deception -- where merCurious illuMentations introvert to where deep calls to deep -- these senses converge in the confluence of our brain, overflowing with impressions again and again, while the heart raptures in swelling awe, at what is now and what is all ... and then from this imminent wonder moving into an ever brightening awe, our eyes glitter with the beauty that we saw...

Sprechen Sie Deutsch?

It was not so long ago German's were burning their money due to hyperinflation during the Weimar Republic as it has more value in starting fires than it did with purchasing power.  

Just about every society with an fiat currency economy has failed, and it is of no great surprise that our world economy is doomed for the same fate.

It is not a matter of IF just WHEN.

and their citizens have to work in sweatshops to supply electronic products to the rest of the world?

it will never happen. america will never let the chinese move without a fight. an economic collapse with its population reduction might be the best solution, as harsh as it sounds.

revolution on the streets of america will certainly propel us into a new age. when will their citizens wake up?
