Questions of interest

Critical Thinking's analysis of the political economy has revealed three fundamental flaws:

  • Hierarchy - all of our hierarchical institutions are corrupt and manipulated
  • the means to life (our birthright) is rationed: the Commons have been progressively colonised and monetised for the benefit of the few
  • Usury - interest on money drives inequality, environmental destruction and conflict

Usury, ie. the charging of interest on money, is so embedded in our way of thinking that we miss the obvious - usury is exploitation. It was prohibited by all the major religions - except Judaism: one was allowed to charge Gentiles interest but not those of your own community. Religions were infiltrated and manipulated to abandon this principle long ago. Islamic banking may adhere to the letter of Sharia but is often flouting the spirit by disguising interest as something else.

Until we accept the corrosive, abusive and destructive nature of interest, we are not on the first base to understand the political economy. Simply put, banking is theft and we're wasting our time, energy and intellect trying to solve the insoluble. Social and economic justice cannot be reconciled with interest.

There is no easy way to persuade people to embrace this fact other than by getting them to open their minds, read Margrit Kennedy's Interest and Inflation Free Money and think. Having been exposed to empirical evidence which demonstrates that interest is a wealth transfer mechanism, we must then ponder the common sense explanation of why this is so: those with more money than they need exploit those who have none or too little - about 80% of the population.

Interest provides the motivation and means to create money from nothing and has granted the Rothschild family the global money monopoly which means they've bought and control the world. The economics curriculum is the product of their foundation funded universities to ensure money is never studied, thereby avoiding discovery by the supposed "experts" who've been brainwashed (as we all are) out of their ability to think critically. Neat trick on humanity.

Some economists have suggested that inadequate bank audits by the big accounting firms led to the 2008 financial crisis. The accounting profession is complicit in this fraud on humanity. It is the practice of double entry bookkeeping which obscures theft on a global scale. The evidence is in every bank's ledgers for all to see.
