When a society like ours is in a state of collapse, we start to feel pressure. It's not real pressure - its manufactured - a combination of deliberate government policy and an insidious psychological operation. It's imposed from outside ourselves by politicians, the media, each other. There are too many people, not enough resources, the roads are too full, we have to stand on the train. Before we know it, we're willing to accept health care rationing, eugenics, euthanasia and policy documents(pdf) from puppet-masters of the next King stating that we need to reduce our population by 40 million. We're willing to accept the tearing down of our institutions, of our Constitution(pdf), of our education. After all, we have over-extended ourselves. Procreated too freely. Borrowed too much.
On Wednesday last week, Network Rail announced plans for a high speed rail link from London to Scotland. Someone gets it, I thought.
On Thursday, hot on the heals of their announcement, came the announcement that Network Rail are to lay off 1800 staff.
Unemployment is soaring in this country - despite the high pitched squeals of demented vested interests that everything is "alright" - especially among young adults. And yet, when thrown a lifeline like the Network Rail proposal, the response from the man responsible for just about everything in this country was ... silence.
What kind of society are we going to have in 10 or 20 years, when the next generation are receiving no useful education, no practical training and no hope for their futures? What will they do? How will they behave? Is it any wonder that there's so much anger and violence on our streets?
Even if Network Rail gets approval from the government for this new rail link, who's going to build it? We don't have anyone capable of such a project below the age of 60! It will, we are told, take a generation to build it. We can't afford to do it any faster, you see.
We can't afford anything. We can't afford to train our young. We can't afford decent health care. We can't afford decent infrastructure, decent roads, decent rail.
What a pile of ...
To understand how much we can't afford to do these things, lets consider how money is created in the UK.
The Treasury is the ultimate source of all money in the UK. It places an order with the Royal Mint (for coins) or the Bank of England (for notes), which is sold to the commercial banks at face value. So - and read this carefully folks - when the Treasury issues money in this way, it makes a profit of the face value of the cash, minus the manufacturing costs (paper and ink, or some inexpensive metal).
Sounds great, doesn't it?
Sadly, though, that's where the greatness ends, because it's also where the commercial banks come in.
Commercial banks still need cash, even in the 21st century. They're doing their level best to not need cash any more, but for now they do. So when they need some more, the Treasury creates it, and sells it to the commercial banks in return for a cheque. Once the banks get their hands on the cash, they are allowed to create even more new money by issuing loans and mortgages.
In Britain, unlike other countries, there is no hard rule about how much money banks need to keep in reserve. It's absolutely voluntary. So, whereas in the US, banks are required to keep reserves of 10%, on average our banks hold a reserve of only 3%. That's the average.
So for every £1m of new cash that the Treasury creates debt free, the commercial banks will, under normal circumstances, create out of nothing a further £32m or so, which then carries interest. Compound interest at that. Usury.
Here you see, in all is stinking glory, the core of the scam imposed on us by our monetary financial system:
When the banks need money, they get it debt free from the Treasury. Yet, when the government, businesses, or we need money, we all have to go cap in hand and beg for the right to pay a commercial bank some usurious interest. Is this not ournational, sovereign, currency?
Network Rail will lay off its 1800 staff. It will beg and fawn to the government for a mere £35 billion over 25 years for a project it won't be able to complete in 50, because there'll be no-one alive by then with the skills to build it. In the meantime, 40 million of us will be dead, killed by the policies derived from the Optimum Population Trust's recommendations - through collapsing nutrition, health care, street violence and the weight of the forthcoming carbon tax.
All because we allowed the bankers to define government policy.
Well, here's my policy.
- Abolish the Bank of England. What does it do that's of value?
- Build a very high wall around the City of London. Let the City within a city become just that. They're costing us too much. Seal it off and leave them to it.
- All national currency is to be issued by the Treasury, and entered into the economy by spending it on projects which keep people alive, educate them, train them and employ them.
- Build our nation.
All national currency to be issued by the Treasury? All of it? Debt free? Maybe we can afford to build a nation after all. The bankers won't like that, of course. Where will they get the money for that new Porche?
And that last part - the nation building part - its not so hard now that we know where the money is coming from. We just need to get excited about the future. We need to stop following the news agenda imposed by our politicians and the media - the one which would have us jumping off a cliff like a bunch of stupid lemmings.
Instead we need to imagine our country as we were promised by Tomorrow's World. If we're going to go to the trouble of building new rail infrastructure, why not have the capability of getting to Glasgow in one hour, instead of two? Why not get white vans off the streets? How about clean air in our cities? How about, at long last, we deal with our energy problem?
Every society in history, bar none, has grown up through using the highest technology available to them at the time, applying it to their surroundings, while at the same time striving for ever higher technologies which make that growth more efficient. We must relearn that approach, relearn to look fifty or a hundred years into the future and imagine how we want it to be.
Every society in history that forgot that approach, collapsed into a dark age of war, famine and disease.
Britain is in a state of collapse. Politicians won't fix it. Only we can do that. If it were me, I'd print out some copies of this article. I'd head down to my local job centre. I'd hand it out to some unemployed young people, and say to them, "get organised, join us in Lawful Rebellion, our future depends on it."
