I do not believe a debt-based economy is the real problem, I just think it helps the controllers. In my opinion, so long as human beings allow
governments to standardize and control economies there will be no peace and no freedom.
Even if we all traded gold or tulips, if the government is allowed to regulate what an ounce of gold or a single tulip is worth, what tulips can or
cannot be imported or exported, or how gold is permitted to be mined, someone will always be able to buy-off government to do their bidding (ie. to
place a stumbling block in front of the rest of us).
Economy is one of the key pillars of a civilized society. If you know what a civilized society is actually designed for, then it comes as no surprise
that economy is designed to control the masses and benefit the few. In fact, I contend that civilized society, as it is currently designed, is
intended to be a formula which benefits the few at the expense of the many.
The key pillars of a civilized society are: economy/trade, government, religion/morality, and the arts and sciences (including the dissemination of
them, which is found in language and education). We are told that these things offer us protection, simplify our lives, and promote progress, but do
they really? And progress for who? Is working 60+ hours a week just to pay rent/mortgage, electric, food, etc. with a constant fear of the
government coming down on you for something really progress for the individual?
Now, I'm not saying the idea of civilized society is bad, or that I am unhappy to have running water and electricity, but I am merely pointing out
the cost there is to individual liberty by having this stuff SO LONG AS the formula for civilized society is maintained in the same manner and for the
Who created the formula and how long has it remained unchanged? Sure governments have changed and so have economies, but they've always been run the
same way and intended for the same purpose, which can be seen in the formula for creating, developing, and maintaining a civilized society. If the
formula created by a few has remained unchanged, is it any wonder that a few greedy and power-hungry people have had rule and control over us for
thousands of years, and continue to do so?
Central banks and debt-based economies are not the root of the problem, in my opinion. The root of the problem is that society itself is not designed
for any of us to have the actual individual liberty that many of us desire. Society is designed for us to think we have individual liberty so that we
keep working for and paying homage to the few at the top who rule the masses of society and care only for the preservation of that mass (not the
individual) in order to maintain their cozy position at the top, and to progress without doing much of anything. In other words, the grasshoppers
progress at the expense of the lives, time, and liberty of the ants.
Civilized society is not wrong, but I do contend the formula for it is not friendly to individual liberty by any means, nor was it ever intended to
be. Doing just a little research on civilization through the lense of philosophy, sociology, and anthropology is all it takes to "get it". Many
talk about how we are pretty much called sheeple in Plato's Republic, but few ask where the very formula being used by Socrates came from in the
first place. They say we've been controlled for thousands of years, but they neglect to say how exactly. Well, here is the answer.
That is my take, take it for what it is worth to you. We're in a lot of trouble because we've always been in this situation. Nothing has changed
about the game, only how the rules are played.
