Barcelona follows Wörgl

Daily Pickings has often referred to the dark art of money and how banks are the biggest obstacle to change; the global banking network is a primary lever of power through which the Structural Elite exert control. Alternative currencies such as Bitcoin and the Bristol Pound are threats to the banking dynasties' power but are relatively small.

The Euro is a stepping stone to a single world currency and its dissolution would be a setback on the road to one world government which is why the Bank of Madrid (controlled by the Structural Elite via the Bank of International Settlements) is so angry at Barcelona's mayor introducing a local currency.

Socialist mayor to fulfill campaign promises by “printing” money.
Over the next six months, Barcelona’s left-wing city council plans to roll out a cash-less local currency that has the potential to become the largest of its kind in the world. The main goal of the project, according to a council spokesperson, is to boost economic opportunities for local businesses and traders.

The digital nature of the currency is a worrying aspect and it could all be a ploy to remove cash from use - once that happens, the means to life can be terminated at the click of a mouse.

Banks create money from nothing and charge interest for governments and people to use it. Nations need to recover sovereign power over money. It worked for Guernsey after the Napoleonic wars. It would be a step towards freeing ourselves from slavery.

One idea is to tie the value of national currency to a nation's land; rents from the land would be shared in the form of an Unconditional Citizens Dividend and free public services. Having created a stable, fair system of distributing the value of the commons, alternative currencies could flourish without threat to public services through tax evasion, the current justification for discouraging alternative currencies.

Alternative currencies have a long history but whenever they've threatened the power of the banks, they've been either undermined to discredit them or the Structural Elite have used the levers of power to stop them dead (two US presidents were assassinated after challenging the power of the banks), eg. the Wörgl experiment.

The Wörgl Experiment: Austria (1932-1933) by Bernard Lietaer
In 1932, in the midst of the Great Depression, the small town of Wörgl in Austria successfully experimented with its own local currency (in the form of a stamp scrip).   Based on the thinking of Silvio Gesell, an early 20th-century economist, and designed to stimulate the local economy, the new currency helped put the population back to work, and inspired many other communities to want to follow its example, until the experiment was abruptly terminated by Austria’s Central Bank in 1933.

So who will rule? People or banks? “Let me issue and control a nation’s money and I care not who writes the laws.” Meyer Amschel Rothschild - 1790

Now is the window of opportunity to free humanity; all that is required is to grasp it.
