For quite some time I have felt that enough people are running with their own way of finding out what ‘money’ is and why it is institutionalised as badly as it is. So instead of hitting my head against the wall highlighting the CAUSES of these ills, I do PR for the EFFECTS: victims of white collar crimes. However, every so often an email comes along I MUST put up:

Healthy money-supply systems for healthy societies and nations …
By William Finnerty
“All goods must therefore be measured by some one thing — now this unit is in truth, demand, which holds all things together — but money has become by convention a sort of representative of demand; and this is why it has the name nomisma — because it exists not by nature (as in “natural law”), but by law (as in “man-made” law) …” Aristotle (384-322 BC)

Much of our “financial crisis” problem (in my opinion) stems from a MAJOR FLAW in our educational system — almost certainly contrived from somewhere “deep behind the scenes” I suspect? — which has left just about every individual person in the Republic of Ireland (and many other nations besides) COMPLETELY ignorant about (1) the extremely important matter of having a HEALTHY “national money-supply system”, and (2) the way to go about putting such a system in place (and keeping it in place!!).
The ancient Greeks discovered (about 2,500 years ago) that a healthy nation’s money-supply system needs to be a “creature of the law“; that in turn the “law needs to be a creature of government”; and, last but by no means least, that the “government needs to be a creature of The People”: as in FULLY under the control of “The People”. (Please note Article 6.1 of Bunreacht na hEireann, the Constitution of the Republic of Ireland.)
Fortunately, and thanks to the Internet, it seems to me that all of us (or most of us at least) could very easily and very quickly overcome — for ourselves as individual human beings — the “major educational flaw” in question: if, that is, we choose to do so (as individuals).
This is particularly true for those who might be inclined to share the “Barry McKenzie” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barry_McKenzie) type viewpoint that “you don’t need to know all the ins and outs of a duck’s a**e about this subject”. Just the BASICS will do.
Apply “Einstein’s Razor” in other words: “Keep things as simple as possible, but not simpler”.

Though the “money-supply” information at the above “Common Dreams” www address is basically for Canada (and “The People” of Canada), it all applies — more or less exactly (in my opinion) — to the Republic of Ireland (and “The People” of the Republic of Ireland) just as well: as it does to “The People” of all (or almost all) the other nations of the world in so far as I am aware.

“Money is the creature of law and the creation of the original issue of money should be maintained as the exclusive monopoly of national government.”
“I see in the near future a crisis approaching which unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country. Corporations have been enthroned, an era of corruption will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavour to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people, until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed.” (November 21st 1864)
“… that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”
All three of the above excerpts are from former Republic of the United States of America President Abraham Lincoln.
“… until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed.”
“Why is our Government, and our Main Stream Media, completely ignoring extremely important information of this kind?”
The two excerpts just above are from a lengthier set of comments and questions dated Sunday June 03, 2012 19:33 at the following Indymedia (Ireland) address:
Never doubt …
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
“Always remember that you are absolutely unique. Just like everyone else.”
“If we are to achieve a richer culture, rich in contrasting values, we must recognize the whole gamut of human potentialities, and so weave a less arbitrary social fabric, one in which each diverse human gift will find a fitting place.”
