This article is a guest contribution that illustrates how the language of personal debts is camouflaged when talking about national debts:
- the repayment by personal debts is legally enforcible
- the repayment of national debts doesn’t matter as long as interest payments reach the bank accounts of those with ‘vested interests’…
Now, however, as people are beginning to wake up to the impossibility of ‘growing debt’ forever, ‘debt ceilings’ are used
- either to bankrupt governments or
- at least to reduce public spending.
Hopefully more and more people see how money has become a tool to control and has ceased to be a medium of exchange, let alone a store of value…
Maybe the ease with which ‘money’ is created as debt should be kept separate from controlling a nation’s money supply? Continue reading

Here is an interview by Iranian Press TV with Michael Burns, an American economist.
While he doesn’t answer the questions particularly well, at least the gist of what he’s saying is
- that money is created from nothing and sold for “interest”
- that the Fed didn’t solve the ‘crisis’ in 2008
- that the American people were lied to.
This US video was published on Daily Paul – the blog relating to Dr. Ron Paul the tireless campaigner for monetary reform who is now in charge of a Congress Committee with which he might make a real difference.
The video spells out how ‘all things political’ are happening from, by, through and with ‘the banks’, including the ‘Banco Vaticano’.
Here is Part 2. There is a total of eleven videos in this series.
Are enough people waking up to make a difference like this cartoonist? Click on the image to enlarge it.
Central banks create “money” from thin air, call it quantitative easing, sell it as “public debts” or “treasury bonds” to get interest payments, and people are in awe of fancy papers and words they don’t understand.
Banks do the same, while talking about “financial products”…
And governments? They play along and betray their tax payers. That’s why the Treasury gets staffed with Bilderberg attendees.
Institutions live longer than people. They follow the money to employ people. In 1694, the Bank of England was the second central bank after the Swedish Rijksbank 30 years earlier…
Same circus, different clowns!…

Here’s my Santa Letter that I put here. Will you add yours?
Dear Bank of England,
For Christmas, it would REALLY be nice if ALL of your employees were invited to remember how you were created in 1694: the Bank of England Act foresaw a punishment for TRADING, to avoid the SUPPRESSION of Their Majesties’ subjects, at TREBLE the value of the trade. See http://bit.ly/fgU3Ps
Hence my biggest wish is that you stop selling ‘bonds’ or any other papers or currencies to the Treasury as “public debt”, only for us the taxpayers to pay interest every year, in every budget, no matter who’s in government.
My next biggest wish is that you stop listening to the Fed, the IMF and any other American economists or bankers. Think your own thoughts! And think about what is good for the people in the UK and not just the global financial elite. Could you please put your allegiance where it is supposed to be, and not with whoever wines and dines you best?
And then I do wish that you supervise all banks propoerly, for self-regulation does NOT work. With the internet it’s easy now. Get proper statistics together! Just as everybody gets hit and hurt when ZERO is reached in an account, so please hit and hurt your fellow bank(st)ers:
- when there is too much Credit and not enough Cash in the money supply
- when short, medium AND long-term inflation figures become unacceptable
- when banks get bailed out WITHOUT victims of financial exploitation and legal oppression being compensated for white collar crimes committed by people in your institutions.
What a lovely 2011 it would become!!!…
