The following is for entertainment purposes only. This is not legal advice; these are my inner-most thoughts transcribed in a slightly more legible manner than they appear in my head. What anybody does with them is their business and has nothing to do with me, as they are intelligent, responsible, miraculous manifestations of infinite consciousness and can more than adequately make up their own minds.

Following an argument with some nugget in the Vodafone shop about why I ‘simply must’ have insurance on my interweb thingy (which inevitably led to me giving him a lecture on law, government, taxation, and you know, the true nature of reality an ting…which he wasn’t too pleased about) I felt the need to explain why I don’t pay income tax, and why that doesn’t make me a criminal…just as a bit of a catharsis really, so humour it or ignore it. Or try it. Up to you…

Basically, if my taxes went toward sustaining/bettering my community-local or national-I wouldn’t have a problem, but the fact is they don’t: Every penny collected in the name of income tax goes directly to the banks to pay off the interest on the national deficit. Not one penny comes back to benefit you or your friends in our current system-the monetary system (read: not justice system!). If this already sounds like I’m talking crazy just check these lil nuggets out: and by check them out, I mean check them out yourself. Don’t take my word for it, ‘cos I talk crazy, don’t I?

•Before 1931 a pound was worth the same as a pound of silver. (Sterling silver, pound sterling etc. you know the score…) If you took twenty quid into a bank they’d exchange it for the equivalent in gold or silver. This was known as the ‘Gold Standard,’ and ensured that the notes you carried around were always worth something tangible. The Gold Standard had been around for centuries, because without it, money would only be worth what the bankers said it was worth, and then the wealth of the entire world would be dependant on the generosity of a few men.

•After World War I, every nation in the world bar a handful (including but not limited to, Syria, Iran…and Iraq) was heavily in debt to the banks of the world. Britain had ditched the Gold Standard in 1931, but in 1933 the banks called the debt in, suddenly and simultaneously, across the globe. Every nation was bankrupted overnight, but having just endured one horrific war, it was decided by the world’s governments to keep the orchestrated global meltdown a secret from the people.

•The gold-reserves of all nations were liquidated (handed over to the banks) to help pay the debt, but it wasn’t enough, predictably, and so since then we have been operating in total bankruptcy. The Gold Standard was silently removed planet-wide and money ceased to have any fixed material value. For the first time, the wealth of the entire world really was dependant on the generosity of a few men.

•Now when you took your twenty quid into a bank they’d exchange it for another twenty quid. Your £20 note states ‘I promise to pay the bearer on demand the sum of twenty pounds’…but of what?…Twenty pounds of F-all. Mint, I blew a tramp for that. When one womb-man pointed this out to the Bank of England receptionist recently (about the money, not the tramp), she got arrested, but don’t let that stop you asking them about it…their stuttering little faces are well worth the effort…

•Since the government had no money to run public services, protect its population, and do all the things a government should do to stop getting overthrown and publically incinerated, the banks replaced the governments with corporations to act on their behalf until the debt was paid, which was nice of them really, because ignorance is bliss and all that, and it kept us nice and placid while they shaped the world in their own image, eh?

The corporation that oversees this particular landmass is called UK PLC, and can be found on, a database of every entity on the planet that trades on the world’s stock markets. That means they are private corporations-with shareholders-wanting more money than they got last quarter, or they’ll take their money elsewhere. Dark suits making decisions about you, based on profit. What do you think is influencing their decisions more: your concerns? Their margins? Hmm, those cops really do seem to care, I… just.. don’t... know…

•If you care to look further on, you’ll also see all of our so-called public services – fire services, hospitals, local councils, schools, the houses of parliament (listed as ‘members of parliament’)…and every police department in the country-are listed as profit-making entities. If they are public services funded by your taxes why are they involved in profit? Are they not there to serve us?

If you’re still with this up to now, by the way, I love you. Most folk turn off when you start talking about financial stuff because it’s seen as an infinitely-complex mechanism that you need a masters to even begin to understand, but as you’ll see from the next couple of paragraphs, that’s all just a smokescreen: you can explain it to your dog, and you should know this stuff, because as you will also see, your money-your labour, your sweat, blood and tears-is being used against you.

When a nation operates in bankruptcy it has to borrow money from its central bank. In the UK this is called the Bank of England, in the US it is known as the Federal Reserve. Every bankrupt nation has a central bank. It is widely assumed that the Bank of England is owned by the government-and therefore the people-but this is not true: The Bank of England is a private corporation-with a board of directors-and can be found trading for profit on Interestingly, the Bank of England is owned by the same people that own the Federal Reserve in the US, and, umm…every other central bank in the world…not to mention the World Bank that supplies all the central banks…but nothing to worry about of course…

So a nation needs money. It goes to the central bank and asks for, say, £10 billion. The central bank credits the treasury with £10 billion. They also charge for this service, however, in the form of ‘interest’. Whenever you hear the media frenzy about how interest rates are affecting savers and homeowners and ooh jesus how are we all going to manage you can be sure this is all just a smokescreen to stop everybody from seeing the simple truth: The interest rate is the amount that the banks are charging you for your money.

The sheer immorality of this insidious scam becomes clear when you ask where the money is going to come from to pay off the interest? The nation only has £10 billion in circulation…so it must borrow the money from the central bank…which will charge interest on that loan…which the nation must borrow from the central bank…blah blah…blah blah…blah blah…etc. Ultimately, the longer this system continues, the further we plunge into debt. There is simply no escape. And this was no accident, it is all by design.

"I care not what puppet is placed on the throne of England to rule the Empire…The man that controls Britain's money supply controls the British Empire. And I control the money supply."

Baron Nathan Mayer Rothschild (1777-1836)
London financier, one of the founders of the international Rothschild banking dynasty.

Remember that name. For a laugh.

If you own money, as in own money as a concept, you can control how much money is in circulation. You can promise people credit, allow them to live beyond their means, maybe call it a ‘boom’…it doesn’t matter, because you own money, you’re just leasing it out. You can provoke famine, fund all major political parties within a nation, hold entire nations to ransom, fund both sides of a war-and thus dictate the outcome, get a proper nice car…anything. You can also pull the plug and stop putting money into the system, so there is not enough for everybody to get their hands on and pay their debts. This means you can take their material possessions as part-payment, so not only would you own money, you’d eventually own everything in the world too…wouldn’t it be nice to own money? These periods of ‘boom-and-bust’ are passed-off by the media as uncertain periods in market-confidence, a natural and unpredictable part of system, but they are not. Not really:

A ‘credit-crunch’ simply means that those who own money are expanding and consolidating their power by keeping it to themselves. This has happened twice before on a global scale, and both times there has followed a global conflict. Don’t let this scare you, but before you see the way out you have to see the whole picture, and you have to know what kind of people you are dealing with...

The current financial ‘crisis’ only exists because those who own money want you to riot. They want you to lose faith in the system and they want you to burn it down. This year, the media (which is owned by the same people who own the banks-who own Reuters-who own the AP-who dictate the world’s press releases-starting to see how it all fits together?) will be pushing stories about civil unrest, and how everybody has had enough. They are hoping there will be those who want to join in.


If you do get violent they know exactly how to deal with you, and they’re itching to show you. They’ve been practicing for years, in many countries, and they’ve got it nailed. So don’t. Don’t go on marches, don’t vote for the other party, don’t vote at all, don’t blame the government, don’t cry out for someone to fix this mess…don’t do anything that puts the government in the master position, because they are not, they are our servants, and when we know that we can start telling them how to act. Without the governmental shield, the banking dynasties will be exposed, and will be held accountable for centuries of fraud and deceit. They will be removed from power, and they do not want this to happen. When we take back our individual responsibility and stop asking the system to give it to us, the whole thing will stop, because if we learn to think for ourselves, we won’t need them any more. No need for violence, only awareness. If everyone knows the scam it can’t continue. Simple.

Those who own money think they have a better system than the one our ancestors fought and died for, and it’s called the European Union. Before it can be introduced, however, they want you to beg for it, because if you demand it you can’t complain when it doesn’t turn out to be quite what you expected. It will be a ‘better’ system for them because it will be a single corporation controlling the whole of Europe, and therefore decision-making will be easy. There will be one Police Force, EuroPol, and if you think the Police lack a certain empathy with the British public now, just wait until we have homesick Italian or German officers patrolling our streets, while our boys are sent over there…not being racist, this is their plan not mine. I’m just telling you about it for entertainment purposes.

It wouldn’t be a bad idea to read up on the European Union and the treaty that the unelected Gordon Brown signed on your behalf without your permission, seeing as it’s going to be the new set of rules you’ll have to live under. You might notice there’s not much in there about your human rights. In fact, if you want to see an example of how life might be under the EU, look at China. China has been used as the prototype for the coming new age by those who own money - the perfect mix of capitalism and communism that will be the new global system- and it has been a very successful experiment…

So with all that in mind, I hope you have a new perspective on my perspective, and can begin to see why I’ve decided that I’m not playing any more. It’s not that I’ve stopped caring about you all or anything, I just don’t agree with funding the global enslavement of future generations, and it’s not like my taxes go where they say they’re supposed to go anyway…

But don’t despair. Because there is a way out, and there always has been. You are not obliged to play the game, and you are not obliged to fund the game for others to play. You are not obliged to seek a licence for anything, as anything that requires a licence must, in fact, be a fundamentally lawful action. You are not obliged to relinquish the inalienable sovereignty that you were born with, and you are not obliged to accept their judgment on how you should go about YOUR business. In fact, you are not obliged to do anything that you do not consent to: you have just been deceived into thinking you have. For a long time. There is no shame in this; the game was ingeniously planned by some very clever people, and you weren’t to know, because they didn’t tell you the rules. But it is a game…and we have not lost.

But that’s another story…

"When the power of love overcomes the love of power, then the world will know peace."

Pass it on.

Let me just say that I don't think the governments are really bankrupt. That's just what they want you to believe.

Go here to find out what's really happening

Let me give you an analogy to explain what they are really doing (at least here in the US - probably global though).

Say I make $50,000 a year. However, I have a budget that states I won't spend over $30,000. At the end of the year, I find out that I have spent $40,000. Instead of truthfully declaring that I have a $10,000 surplus, I tell you I have a deficit of $10,000, and I now need to raise your rent and other fees in order to bring this deficit down. This is what the government is doing on a much larger scale. Got it?

That's pretty much their scheme. This information is freely available to the public, though the goverment does not tell us about it, nor the major media outlets. Every state, town, school district, etc. compiles what is called a CAFR, or Comprehensive Annual Financial Report - these are the "true" books. Anyone can obtain them and learn how to read them to discover how bad we're being screwed and spread the word. They are dependent on our ignorance in order to continue this scheme.

Some important websites to check out that deal with this are and

But I do agree we need to stop playing their game. However, we don't need to ignore their game and expect it to go away because it won't. We need to be proactive in revealing their scam. They can not maintain this sham if we all raise our voices. This game of theirs is up.

I will check out your video but there is a lot of evidence to prove Britain left the Gold Standard in 1931, the commercial redemption process for one. Ask a 'Judge' next time you're in court whether or not your nation operates in bankruptcy...his silence will be your answer...

I think you heard words that weren't there as well, as I never said ignore the system, I believe that awareness of the problem is paramount, and that if the paradigm shifts the whole thing will cease without a shot being fired.

Cheers for your input though mate...peace

First of all, star & flag! Hopefully your thread will catch? If not we just keep lighting the wick!

I've been creating threads like this for months! The only difference being I'm in the US. I'm trying to spark interest and debate around here so we can all clearly understand our real problems. I have had some good discussions, just not as much as I'd like? I think the most important message that needs to reach everyone is that we are accomplishing nothing by fighting each other? We all are seeking the same goals.

We have been subjected to this divided mindset for many years. They have broken us down again and again because they know this life of segregation is the only way to make us weak. I think this scares the hell out of them, and rightly so. Someday people will understand how powerful a force we can be as one. We hold the strength to make the right decisions and live peacefully. Why this is not understood is beyond me?

Instead, we are choosing to argue and take sides against each other? All want to be Conservatives or Liberals? Republicans or Democrats? Pick sides and fight over which parties methods are better and why? This is so beyond ridiculous and is proof that people no longer think at all! You cannot possess a single thought and seriously carry out this ritual simultaneously? This is Three Stooges type of idiocy! We split into two groups divide any useful methods and skills needed for all of our progression and then decide on a winner. We all except the outcome, but then we only let the winner use his half of our methods to achieve our progress? Why would the winner not get to use all the skills and ideas to benefit us? This is embarrassing and to take it seriously is impossible for anyone with a brain.

Except the first one, the other seven links below are to my threads. I merely posted them due to their relevant subject matter. The first link is to a thread that showcases much of what I just said. OP, go take a look at it and perhaps you can help me provide some sanity to it?
