Where Does Money Come From?

28goodman.xlarge1We tend to take the things most visible and obvious for granted and one of these things that very few people do understand properly yet that they are still in contact with on a daily basis is money. We all need money, we all work for money, and we are all dependent on money for our survival – but what is money? Where does money come from?

Most probably know that the printing rights to money in a country tends to be allocated with a bank that is called a Central bank. This bank has the permission to print money and spread it into the economy of the country. And this is really a fascinating aspect of how money works, it is really just paper that has some numbers printed unto it and there is no actual backing behind the money. There is for example no gold backing up the money – it is just paper with numbers dictating its value. This form of banking system is called a fiat banking system.

Thus these papers we call money do not get their value as a predetermined and absolute value. Instead money gets their value from those who use money in their everyday life in order to buy commodities and services. How we – the users of money – value money will become the value of money. As such the value of money is never stable but goes up and down depending upon how much money as been printed in comparison with the amount of commodities and services in circulation in society as well as the current demand for commodities and services.

This is then the absolutely fascinating aspect of money of which not many are aware. Money is created from NOTHING – literally – and then it is sent out in society and it is given a value – and most often it reaches the population in the form of DEBT. Because here is yet another fascinating aspect of money creation – there is an interest on all money that is printed, which means that there will continuously be less money in circulation than what there is debt that must be settled. This in turn leads to a debt spiral, where more debt must be acquired to be able to pay the old debts.

The conclusion is thus that we are indebting ourselves to receive money to have no intrinsic value in themselves – we are thus indebting ourselves to a life of servitude not realizing that the money printed and spread in the form of debt is not an actual and real measure of value – it is a artificial value that is created through make belief – a make belief that we make a reality because we believe in it and act according to it as if it is a reality.

The question we should ask ourselves is why we should require paying an interest on the money that is in circulation in our countries? Should not money be a property of the people? Should not we all have the possibility to be able to acquire food, education and housing without indebting ourselves?

The answer is obvious, because we all want to live without debt. This is why we require educating ourselves on the process of how money is created and in this understand that we as the people of each and every country are able to nationalize the banks and as such take control over our own money supply.

As I said in the beginning – money is created from nothing. It is merely papers with numbers printed unto it and nothing more. Why is that we then continue to hold unto to the belief that money is a scarce resource and something that cannot be owned in plenty by all?

In nationalizing the process of money creation we will be able to issue money and bring it into circulation and in this support new investments, and we would be able to end the credit crunch currently holding the world in a tight grip, simply because the money issued would not be in the form of credit, but in the form of REAL money with no interest attached to its back.

I thus suggest we nationalize our banks and make the process or printing and issuing money something that benefits the wellbeing of all instead of as it exists today – a seemingly endless debt spiral where more and more people forfeit and have their lives ruined.

Investigate the Living Income Guaranteed – our political proposal involves the nationalization of the banks.

The Secret of Modern Day Imperialism

ImageGrowing up in the country of Sweden I was taught by my parents and in school that Sweden is a great and benevolent nation. I was taught that Sweden gives aid to the poor nations of Africa, that we support gender equality, and that we stand for a society without discrimination, where you should be treated the same regardless of sexual preference, religion, class or place of birth. Looking at the news back then, where it was shown how the western world with UN in the forefront through military effort protected the people of less democratic nations of the world, I actually believed that we as the western world, as Europe and America, had it down – we knew what we were doing and what we were doing was something good.

It is fascinating to see how many people and in particular the older generations that still hold unto this view of our country, because the truth of the matter is the my naïve childhood belief of the benevolent nation of Sweden and western industrialized countries is an absolute and complete sham. The reality is that Sweden is a big exporter of weapons and the fact is that weapons are designed to kill and wreak havoc; as such the very act of building and selling a weapon is in its nature a crime against life – a crime against human rights.

The reality is that America and Europe since long have been using organizations such as the UN to cover up their true imperialist ambitions – utilizing pretty words and fluffy terms such as the “Security Council”, “Democracy”, “Freedom”, “Solidarity” and “Human Rights” to hide the reality of their actions. The indisputable truth is the America and Europe have waged a systematic war against less fortunate nations in order to gain power and influence, in order to have access to resources, and in this NO considerations whatsoever have been given to the people of these targeted nations and the suffering that they have gone through in order to make some very few elitists disgustingly wealthy.

What I have understood through the research that I have done over the years is that our current system depicts itself in one way but the truth of what the system in-fact exists as is the complete opposite – and this is why one is not able to trust any information that is emitted through the main media channels of the world – the views coming through here are deliberately twisted and aligned to fit the picture as how the system wants to be seen.

In order to see the reality of the system it is as such suggested to research some of the more underground sources of information – and here a great source of information is the journalist John Pilger. He makes absolutely astonishing documentaries and one I warmly recommend for everyone to see is called Paying the Price – Killing the Children of Iraq, which clearly depicts the separation that exists between how the system presents itself to exist and how the system in-fact functions and exists in actuality.

What is then the Solution to this problem?

We have leaders in position of power that do not have integrity or common sense and this is our creation – we the people have through democracy selected the people in charge of making decisions that do not support life and as such it is our responsibility to utilize our power of voting and our power of becoming politically aware to select leaders that do have integrity. A first step in the right direction and a practical way that we on a individual level can contribute to this change is through assisting and supporting with the reeducation of humanity – and this can be done through such simple means as writing blogs, making vlogs, and sharing the documentaries and articles that have already been created that effectively show what issues we are facing – and within this that we also share the Solution so that we do not keep ourselves stuck in a perpetual state of feeling helpless and hopeless – but that we show that there are practical steps we can take in order to make a difference in this world.

To create a lasting impact on a global level we do require a new economic system and in this we require to ban such harmful and destructive points as the weapons industry – the Living Income Guaranteed is a political proposal that will end much of the strife, suffering and hardship that is currently existent in this world – and it will put an effective halt to the imperialistic machinery currently driving the economies of the western world. We really do not need imperialism in order to have an effective economy – what we need is humanity coming together supporting and assisting one another and this is what the Living Income Guaranteed will support with.

Thus – make your voice heard, stand up as a catalyst of common sense and effective reasoning and show those still blind to the obvious that there is another way to live where all are included and where the Human Rights of each human-being will be honored practically and where it doesn’t remain but fluffy and nicely sounding words.

Let’s get this done!
