Aphorism 59

How do I know paper or electronic money has no true value?  Observe how all that is non-human functions day in and day out without an exchange of paper, coin, or plastic.

Cooking the Golden Goose

A profit is nothing more than trickery and deception, for a thing is only worth the energy used to create it, nothing more, nothing less.

 

All that man has created, or could’ve created, or could create, could’ve or could be done without Gold.

 

What other creatures will take our money in exchange for something we want?

 

A gold rock, a piece of paper, a coin, has no energy to expend or provide and therefore has no worth.

 

Even a fool can become rich if he picks the winning number.

 

Bankers are like priests – they pass an empty bowl around and the people fill it with their money.

 

Making money off money is nothing short of a magic trick.

 

Taking a loan or using credit breaks the harmonious law of nature that says no energy can be used without using energy to use it.

 

A river flows from its source to the ocean while money flows onto itself.

 

A billionaire doesn’t have enough energy to count his billions.

 

The only currency that has value is the mind, the hand, blood and sweat.

 

Men dig tons of earth to find an ounce of gold (Heraclitus — sixth century B.C.)

 

Quiet Revolution

Form small groups of people consisting of a farmer, a hunter, a builder, an engineer concerned with the environment and intelligent design, a nurse, a plumber, an electrician, a scientist, an artist, a philosopher, a teacher, a cook, and those with other important skills and strong work ethics.  As a group, gather all your money, credit cards, loan documents, house keys, car keys, and walk together to the bank.  Throw all these things into a heap at the front door, but do not burn the pile for that is illegal.  Now, gather your driver’s license, passport, birth certificate, social security card, voter registration document, and toss them into a big box and ship it via the U.S. Postal Service to Washington DC.  Walk away together and find some unspoiled and unpopulated land.  Let the bankers, the lawyers, the lobbyists, the Wall Street insiders, the media complex, the marketeers, the leaders of mammoth businesses, and politicians play with their valueless papers while we begin anew and find a better way.  They may arrest us for occupying land we did not pay for, but they can’t take anything away from us since we gave them all we had that had any meaning or worth to them….and kept and preserved what has meaning to us.

Inflation — Fuse to the Debt Bomb

www.usdebtclock.org

This clock displayed in the above link (click it…it is very enlightening) calculates not just America’s federal public debt which is 15 trillion, but it also shows total debt including citizen debt, business debt, state and local debt, and other forms of debt like social security and medicare/medicaid.  The total debt of our country is approaching 57 trillion. Our GDP is only 15 trillion.  Do you mind telling me how our GDP will ever catch up to pay off 57 trillion?  Even if we liquidated all our assets we still couldn’t cover our liabilities.

Now, if you extrapolate the situation in America to Europe, the picture is the same.  world-debt-clock.html This clock only shows public debt relative to the countries GDP.  Look at the European countries relative to China and India.  Do you think China and India can bail out the western civilization?  Do you think they even care?  Shit, they have almost a third of the world population to take care of and don’t have the resources to bail out our bleeding asses.  But, when we implode they will also experience hell, but to lesser extent.  The changing of the guard is here.  Time to start teaching Mandarin, Cantonese, Hindi, and perhaps Spanish in the schools.  English, German, and French can become electives.

Inflation is here folks and it is going to get much worse.  And when inflation hits hard, the cat will be out of the bag.  Inflation is the fuse that will awaken the public to the Ponzi scheme that is paper money printed at will, debt issued at the push of a button, and the electronic casino that is the stock market; and the debt bomb will explode world-wide leading to chaos.  Greece is a prelude.  I am not alone in this perspective.  There is another way my friends for human beings to create our existence without money.  Just watch some little kids play a little league baseball game.

“Money is a new form of slavery, and distinguishable from the old simply by the fact that it is impersonal – that there is no human relation between master and slave.”

Leo Tolstoy

“It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and money system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning.”

Henry Ford

“The modern banking system manufactures money out of nothing. The process is, perhaps, the most astounding piece of sleight of hand that was ever invented. Banks can in fact inflate, mint and un-mint the modern ledger-entry currency.”

Major L L B Angus.

“The study of money, above all other fields in economics, is one in which complexity is used to disguise truth or to evade truth, not to reveal it… The process by which banks create money is so simple the mind is repelled. With something so important, a deeper mystery seems only decent.”

John Kenneth Galbraith

“Paper money eventually returns to its intrinsic value —- zero.”

Voltaire

“I sincerely believe … that banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies, and that the principle of spending money to be paid by posterity under the name of funding is but swindling futurity on a large-scale.”

Thomas Jefferson

“Thus, our national circulating medium is now at the mercy of loan transactions of banks, which lend, not money, but promises to supply money they do not possess.”

Irving Fisher

“If, however, a government refrains from regulations and allows matters to take their course,  essential commodities soon attain a level of price out of the reach of all but the rich, the worthlessness of the money becomes apparent, and the fraud upon the public can be concealed no longer.”

John Maynard Keynes

“Paper money has had the effect in your state that it will ever have, to ruin commerce, oppress the honest, and open the door to every species of fraud and injustice.”

George Washington
