Dying of Money

A MUST READ. The degree to which the general population is ignorant, yes, ignorant about what money is and how it relates to inflation, deflation and hyper-inflation is staggering. Do you ever really wonder why it is that money loses value over time? The time value of money is a human construct, nothing more. And the humans who created this system and passed it on to their heirs, who defend it come hell or high water, do not have the common good in mind. If they did, the Bible would not have been written to keep them in check.

The idea of living through a hyper-inflation scares the bejezzus out of me but is at the same time exhilarating. There are many opportunities to be had when an economic order collapses as the Strong are cut down to size and the Meek allowed to flourish.

Get out.. a group with a proposal on how to live sustainably!

The Holigent REvolution for Economic Security, Peace and Sustainability

I give them credit for trying. Problem is there will always be people who want to lead, people who don’t mind following, but more importantly, and here is what I think humanity has suffered from the longest, people who want the power to lead and all the bling that it entails but none of the responsibility. ¬†It’s this last group that screws it up for everyone else since they are the ones who masterfully ¬†manipulate human nature and pull the wool over the eyes of those who ARE natural leaders and come closest to Plato’s idea of Philosopher Kings.

This is what Jesus was trying to convey to people… Do unto others as you would have them do unto you…

If we can’t get what I will bluntly call “assholes” to start thinking about the greater good, then they win… until all is destroyed and then the Meek shall inherit what’s left of the Earth… and so the story will begin anew…
