The true global currency has always been gold, or things that are an actual resource, or have inherit value. To start this discussion, I think there
are some "base" things you need to understand.
I'm not normally a fan of this guys, but in this case he is right on. 1 hour long, very very educational.
I also recommend a story called "I want the Earth Plus 5%
That story is about "fractional reserve banking".
There is so much, I'm not sure where to start. I guess purchasing power is as good a place as any.
Lets say that in the entire world, there was a total of $100. Of that $100, you personally owned $10 of that. This means you have 10% of the
entire worlds wealth. To make things easy, lets say there are 20 widgets that exist in the world. Supply and demand dictates that each of those
widgets has a value of $5 each. 20 widgets in the world, $100 in the world, $5 X 20 widgets = $100. You have enough purchasing power to buy 2
widgets with your $10.
Now, along comes the bankers and they create another $100. Like what you see going on today with all this "bailout", all this money being created.
Now, instead of $100 in circulation, there is $200. Now, we do the same exact thing we did above. You still have your $10. Supply and demand
now states that each of those widgets is worth $10 each. $10 X 20 = $200. You just lost half your purchasing power and half your wealth, and the
money in your pocket stayed the same. Where as you were able to buy 2 widgets before, you can now only buy 1. Meanwhile, whoever the bank
decided to give that newly created $100 to is able to buy up all the widgets. They basically took half your actual wealth and gave it to someone
This is why the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. Because the rich corporations and such get the newly created money in the form of loans.
This system is 100% legal and is known as "fractional banking". You can call it "trickle down" economics if you want, but the corporations and
those who got the newly created money are able to decide where it trickles. And at the same time, they have stolen the actual wealth from the
people to being with.
Now the banks don't just give this money away, instead they "loan" it out with interest(usury). This means that they are not only owed that $100,
but $5 on top of it as well. Create enough money and suddenly there is more in interest owed than money exists. This is our current situation.
They only created $100, but now they want back $105. Where does the extra $5 come from? Well 1 person has to "make" it and get it from another
person. This of course means that someone is going to come up short, like musical chairs. The interest payments and such have gotten so big that
they are really just creating all this bailout money to cover the previous debt payments. Like a check cashing scheme people use to do. Write a
bad check for $20 one day, then the next day write a check for $40, take $20 of the new $40 and pay the previous check off. Of course it keeps
growing, and the more they create the new money, the more wealth is stolen from the people.
All the while most people don't even notice because the amount of money in their pockets doesn't change, they make the same amount of money. Only
suddenly they just can't afford what they use to. This is evident in US history, when back in the 50's when this was somewhat regulated by
limiting the amount it could be extended with the gold standard when 1 guy worked at the local factory and was able to comfortably support his entire
family. Now both parents have to work and so forth just to make ends meet. Why? Because the purchasing power has been stolen.
So, if the world is going on a single currency, it means whoever controls that currency is able to control the world. The mark as a means of currency
basically means that you won't be using things of actual value. Those in charge can just create money as they see fit and they are able to decide
who is wealthy and who isn't. Where as in history things of value have been considered the global currency, in such a system there is no real
limit to how much can be stolen.
If we did these things, it would be called counterfeiting. But for them, it is 100% legal. Constant transfer of wealth from the poor to the rich.
Alot of Jesus's tirade on the temple/markets has alot to do with this. It's not really new. Back in those days they would "change" the money.
1 would be more valuable than the other, and 1 would be considered equal value because of an imprint on it etc. They would shave the coins to make
them thinner and all sorts of things. Jesus called them thieves, and when one of the servants doesn't do as he is told with the gold he is given,
the servant says he thought Jesus was just a thief. To which Jesus replied - if you thought I was a thief, then why did you not put the gold where he
could at least get usury as the other thieves do. Basically calling the servant out on a lie.
And while this is somewhat of a "secret", it's not really a secret. Always been known, always been out in the open. But people go along with it
because they either don't understand it, or they want the "easy credit" and part of the newly created money and as long as they are good, who
