Greece would be much better off without the kosh of oppression slamming down across its neck every time it tries to plead its case. The fact is that
the only reason Greece or any nation is having difficulties is nothing to do with personal debt. Nor are the government debt issues the responsibility
of any number of, or any individual citizen of the nation.
The thing that has done for Greece in this instance, is the very construction of the financial structure of the nation, and of the wider world. It is
UTTERLY reprehensible that nations or individuals ought to even NEED a loan. The reason that ANYONE has EVER required financial assistance down the
years, is not a simple matter of over spending and under earning. It is a fundamental fact that when ones living costs outwiegh ones capacity to
aquire funds, there is going to be an inevitable problem.
This fact has been obvious to all since Dickens was writting about workhouse children, and Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future. The
solution however, is rather simpler than the financiers like to make out. First, an outright ban on all speculation. Food and oil prices world wide
are to lock solid and never change, every nations currency is to be worth precisely the same amount. All employers must offer wages which can pay for
a man or woman to feed, home, and provide for themselves and a family with room to spare. All landlords should be FORCED to offer rents which can be
afforded with no more than a TENTH of a monthly wage packet, and utility bills must be capped also, so that a person can always save for the future,
no matter what they do, or where they do it.
Finance as a business must CEASE, and currency should be relagated to the position it actually deserves, that being no more than a token, to trade
for goods and services. Banks must no longer be profit based organisations, merely places to store money. Mortgages as we know them and so on will be
banned, and all payments to banks on an interest basis banned as well. Loans for big items like the purchase of ones own home, to do with what one
pleases, will be free of interest, and will be provided FREE of charge from customer to bank.
To keep the banks running (I.E. keep peoples money from getting stolen, and for the provision of such protection as would make that protection
secure) a tax could be raised (a SMALL one) by governments, which would be paid from them to the banks instead, yearly, to cover the security costs
involved. Thats all.
