Not so long ago democracy and freedom had been established into people’s mind. And even military force is used to establish it. “You shall have freedom and democracy”. On top of that, we live in a world of money. It has become everything these days.
This is a down to earth demonstration of why freedom and democracy don’t exist at all whatsoever. Why our money is based on capital fraud and that we basically live in economic slavery.
So let’s first look what drives our world today, and has become the root of all… money.
Everybody wants it and everybody needs it in how our world ticks today.
Where does money come from? Is it made by industry?
No, industrial business simply buys ingredients (very ruthless even), pays their bills and sells the compound delivered at profits. The total netto surplus is then parked as a reserve. To invest it? No, hardly anymore.
Investments are capital expenditures and most always need to be covered by capital loans to be paid back over time, which is nicely called ‘Return on Investment’.
Profits hardly can ever cover capital expenditures these days to assure existence of a creating industry, unless it’s about the valuable geo-commodities (oil, coal, gas, gold, silicon, diamonds, etc.)
The public spends to obtain the end-consumer product made, lured by massive over killing advertisements (mind manipulation is free choice? You’d probably never ask for it if you didn’t know about the product).
The public obtains money by putting energy into paid labour, which is simply part of that monthly bill of the industry. So nothing extra value is really added.
This mass of rather small consumer money flowing back to industry, simply is too little to make capital expenditure possible.
So where does capital come from?
In order to keep materialisation going, capital needs to be created.
But where does that process begin.
First of all that process has become the exclusive right of commercial banks, which are owned by some private individuals.
Despite what many people still may think otherwise, nor the government nor any central bank have the authority anymore to create capital.
In the US this is the case since 1913. In Europe this model has been copied in 2007; settled in the European guideline CRD-IV and treaty of Lisbon, dec. 2007. Thanks to the corrupt network of politician-bankers, (hidden titles, roulating jobs and side positions for most well known faces).
Everybody needs capital, including governments and house owners who need a mortgage.
Yet, governments can’t produce it themselves nor can they get it via any central bank, and not via the ECB or the FED. This so called direct financing has become prohibited by the EU and US government.
So where do they get it.
By taking loans at investment banks by auctioning their governments bonds to them. No other channels of high finance are open anymore.
These banks simply create it upon computer-entry. Hard backing isn’t needed. Basel II accords gave banks the freedom to insure billions at a security bank (like AIG was, or now Credit Suisse or Goldman Sachs are for example. But most banks today have an insurance business, also often neatly called ‘security’ or ‘asset management’).
But… insurance has no backing either since these insurance banks live under the same Basel accords.
So no hard assets of their own are needed at all.
0,7 Million can simply be insured for a 1000 million just by a piece of paper which has no underlying value. There is no hard backing (gold backing has ended already a long time ago, in 1971.)
Really? Yes, really.
Well, in 2019 (Basel III) the banking reserves need to be 7% in 2019, which is still a laugh.
Is your mortgage just 7% of your individual income?
This system of creation is only allowed to create capital in the field of real estate, government loans and funding of pensions… only for that…
So those fields have become the big business and main focus since ~2000, and explains mega farms, huge empty office buildings, governments in debt and crooked manipulation of pension calculations.
Yet, you, I, businesses and governments must always borrow at some point, and we all must do so against rather high interest. There is no escape from it.
But why. The money never existed in the first place, or at ridiculous low price for the banks.
Actually, they borrow it from the ECB (in Europe) or FED (in the US). Their interest rates have only dropped further to respectively 0,05% and 0,25%. Only the commercial banks can use it. No one else. That’s simply means free money for the commercial banks (!)
So banks can borrow 700,000 against 0,05%, and then insure that for 1000,000,000, for a small quarterly premium over the 700,000 while the insurance itself has no underlying value, nor does the insurance bank have hard assets to cover.
These insurances are called ‘Swaps’ and are considered the prime cause of the near financial collapse in 2007.
Those Swaps are traded for speculation as well. They speculate on bankruptcy of entire countries, local governments and your mortgage.
Only the entity taking the loan pays big interest and over the entire 1000,000,000… 2,5%, 4,0%, etc.
Why do we have to pay interest? And why do we need to pay it back?
And why ~ 500 – 1000 times more interest than the principle interest of only 0,05%.
And more critical (!).
Why have private entities (commercial banks, thus billionaire private owners) have the exclusive right to create money based on hardly anything we all depend on?
They get filthy rich by the interest over something that never existed. And putting energy into labour doesn’t add capital as we have discovered.
This demonstrates that capital can only come into roulation by perpetually adding debt to the public, and for the profit of private owners who can do so because they are allowed to do so…
since only they haven been given the exclusive right to bring it into roulation.
And where does the money come from to cover the interest we must pay…
only by new loans since that money doesn’t exist in the initial capital created…
and again against ~500 – 1000 time the interest compared to the principle of 0,05%.
Does hard labour bring wealth and financial independence?
No, it doesn’t. Energy into labour doesn’t add anything, it only turns around what already exists.
Sure, for selfishness and status it may work for a while for some. But that is pure selfishness, and some will even accuse others who are not in such position.
The majority has been accustomed to the idea that hard work is the only good thing, otherwise is often called lazy and lacks status.
We learn this during our education and the entire society is build on this idea. Many people simply can’t imagine something else. All thanks to politics, education, reformation (which has a large part to do with it and is the so called ‘christan-jewish society’), media, businesses, etc.
Does consumption add to wealth?
No, it doesn’t.
Consumption does not add anything. It only turns around what already exists and basically strengthens the poison. And it only adds to short term ‘feel good’… for a short while. It only adds to individualism, thus strengthens selfishness.
Since we all live to pay high multiplied interest, and private entities have the exclusive right to create capital against extremely low interest for them from barely nothing, the outcome can only be that the mass need to put ever more energy into labour for less perpetual pay which clearly is the trend since decades.
Free money for the über rich
The ones owning billions, don’t need to put any energy into anything. A billion dollars or euros just gives massive leverage by interest alone just by staying in bed and sleeping (!) For their kids they can buy the best education (thus network), so they strengthen that morality later on.
All the above given, this can only mean that they suck the existing mass of money to them automatically. And since that process is exponentially, the mass of money available for the average person becomes less while public debt goes up perpetual, again feeding just a few again.
Can our politicians do something about this?
No, they can’t. They live by the same status quo.
Do they at least represent the public?
No, they represent their own interest groups and lobbies.
The daily lie
Then, does democracy and freedom exist? And will hard work create wealth for the public?
Unfortunate, all depends on money these days. And politicians can’t create that, nor can they change the way it goes.
They who profit will further pay to get their way. They buy a media-outlet, or start an investment company, or a big private charity (which is also investment banking in the same system).
They also decide which party or presidential campaign to support financially and who gets the best benefits on all concentrated media. The candidates with the best support simply will win.
All speak the same language. And politicians depend on private funding from the interest groups and lobbies, or at least on their pressure. Public media also co-operates with private media, share (re)sources and they all copy, paste daily the same text creating hypes that way.
And not seldom, journalists and owners of media outlets once were politicians, had been their spin masters, or they are at least politically highly engaged.
Journalists and politicians simply wheel and deal in closed settings.
The holders of media always want heavy social political influence (almost no exception). Media therefore is always biased because of heavy concentration these days of all media, their titles and belonging to a dominant few holding companies.
Sanoma (Aatos Erkko, also officially listed as CIA informant), GE (JP Morgan), ProSiebenSat.1, Rupert Murdock, Bertelsmann, Baron Michael Grade, Bouygues, Times Warner (Morgan), Sumner Redstone, Disney, Emir of Qatar.
The dominant International press agencies are no more than ~15 at the most and all are privately owned, except the two in Russia and China:
Bloomberg, CNN, UPI, AP, Reuters, BBC, AAP, DPA, IPS, AFP, ANP, Belga, Agencia Internacional, Xinhua, Interfaks, ITAR-TASS.
Anything you read and see is highly likely a title or copy-paste from them all of the above, at least in Europe, Australia and US.
And for magazines in Netherlands. Almost all titles are now owned by Sanoma.
But we can elect a party, can’t we?
And? Are they able to create capital and spending room for the best of public use?
None of them whatsoever. They are slaves of the same money masters.
The destruction of public wealth
The system as described in this article doesn’t create wealth. It destroys it and sucks it all out into the direction of some private entities. It’s a multiplication model in an exponential way.
No other or any logical conclusion is possible at this moment.
I hear some say: “just work hard and create your chances”.
Well, that worked in the 60s and 70s yes when there was almost unlimited room for universal growth. But the system today is obstructed.
I even heard people say the poor are profiteers and there should be no reason why they obtain money by less initiative. Success or not is suppose to depend all on yourself according to the general moral of today…
Okay, suppose one day we all do that super energy thing?
And then what.
Can all earnings then cover all debt and interest? Does it change something?
Selfishness and thus blindness on the short term is what changes.
But worse, competition can only spiral up between people perpetually, obtaining less roulated public money available since the capital+interest only flows back to the ones who obtained exclusive right to create it by their crooked financial system constructed as explained.
In other words, all individuals want a chunk from the total mass of money in roulation, but ever less becomes available for all of them… and so competition can only spiral up. It explains ever more people with burnouts and it explains that total public debt is ever expanding by spreading it over more people since it’s the only way to obtain money. Students are already put on huge debt when starting their professional life… It’s extremely inhumane and criminal.
The current financial system destroys public wealth. And this is what we see happening, but nobody is doing something about it. Politicians are blind to their own agenda following their way only. And they represent their highly powerful invisible network only. There is nothing they can do or change the system.
Where does this all end…
On the long run, it can never cover the way it works today. It will suck the masses dry as the way it goes now. And what’s even worse, the only economy left to keep our way of life will become expansion via weapons and war. This is already happening. It’s why we see increasing military activities all over. It has nothing to do with religion. Religion is economically exploited to justify war to keep our current system going.
Freedom and democracy are your world and your illusion…welcome (!)
I’m sure something better is possible
Certainly, work helps the community and society to some point, but why must it be in an economic slavery model as explained in this article.
We can help out each other in different ways by sharing, helping and immaterial gratitude.
As far as I see it, it doesn’t have to be via the current method of basically economic slavery.
Many ways are already available to obtain food for free. It simply grows. Water is for free. It falls down clean from the sky. It just needs to be gathered. Heating and electricity of course are more complex.
But I’m quite sure that if a community would put their heads together they’d come with solutions. Heating simply can be resolved. Electricity is a more complex thing, but not impossible as Nikola Tesla has already demonstrated ~100 years ago. For instance, he showed that electricity can be freely obtained unlimited from the atmosphere and distributed by air or earth. Basically sand is a silicon and does let electricity flow through. The air guides it as well by nature. Tesla showed that the free unlimited energy can be controlled without the need of paid distribution. Investors blocked his work because profits weren’t possible. Tesla didn’t care about money. He wanted to give mankind free unlimited energy.
