Governments love interest-based debt.
Why? It’s very easy. Do your homework. But when you understand money and interest and the creation of it (and who actually creates it), you understand why the government will never sort out the world’s (or even the country’s) economic mess. You see, to you and I it’s a mess; to the government, they pretend for public consumption, it’s a mess, but it’s not for them. It is just how they like it.
If you wish to discard this information then, by all means, do so, but never complain about left/right and capitalism/communism/socialism/fascism and various leaders, parties and policies because, frankly, your complaints are a bore. 🙂
Now, a solution to your/our situation is available. All you have to do is understand it. Even then, it won’t get anywhere (just like your favourite party won’t unless you vote) unless you back it. Don’t talk shit and say it’s impossible and too difficult because it’s just as difficult as it was for the likes of the LGBT group to get themselves accepted in society and win the right to marriage. It took long years and significant lobbying/marching etc. The thing is, they were trying to change societal values as well as get political support. This wouldn’t be trying to change societal values but just getting as big a number of people understanding and/or supporting this for lobbying to government. 100K signatures cannot be ignored by Parliament can it? It can be not acted upon but it can’t be ignored. Get 500K in a fairly short period of time and that certainly cannot be ignored.
So here’s the question: How much do all you people out there actually want your “change” for the better for everyone?
Now the change would be along the lines of my blog “The New Economics will be mathematics”. Before you say anything (anything at all), I am more than aware that ANY purported solution would require work before implementation and retuning as it is implemented as we come to understand some of the finer nuances of it, so all I have stated, in the petition, is:
Allow open debate regarding a new, non interest based, monetary system.
It is the existing monetary system, and policy surrounding money creation, which is causing poverty worldwide while allowing a tiny minority of persons to capitalise from the system. Capitalism is neither to blame nor the panacea. There is a non-interest-based economy which can be implemented.
Captain Henry Kerby, during Parliamentary questions on April 15th, 1965, stated the following: “Will the Chancellor of the Exchequer take steps to ensure that all government financial requirements should be provided by emissions, free of debt and interest…” Mr Diamond, the Chancellor, stated “No”. Mr Kerby also asked what steps were being taken to eliminate the National Debt. Mr Diamond responded: It is not the government’s policy to eliminate the debt. A system can be introduced to do just that
It does not go into the detail of what such a solution is because the petition site does not give enough words to do so. Getting Parliament to debate – even question what it is – is only a first step. To achieve that, even if you sign, you will have to share this blogpost and the link to the petition, as widely as possible since you are just as aware as I am what it takes to get thousands of signatures. “Change.org” gets the support because they have dozens of people working for them on a website. Similarly, “Positive Money”. This site is a one man band. So all I can say is help me to help you to help us to help all.
Please leave a comment letting me know if you signed.
You lose nothing but potentially, gain enormously (with no money involved) so what the hell are you waiting for? 🙂
