How Nature Can Fix Our Broken Monetary System

Updated on March 17, 2015

"Monetary Reform is the single biggest issue that Canada (and the world) faces today. We must make immediate changes now, or suffer the consequences in the future." ~Hon. Paul Hellyer, Former Minister of Defense of Canada

Nature Has It Right!

Why is it that when we take a look at Nature we see a world of abundance and prosperity?

There is no struggle for Nature to supply its Earth’s inhabitants with a rich variety of nourishment for the mind, body, and spirit. We see the insect and animal world living in harmony with the natural world. We have also witnessed how the world’s indigenous peoples have learned from Nature’s perfect blueprint in creating a prosperous society. They understood that all was connected. They gave thanks to Nature. However, the so-called “Modern Man” was above Nature. In fact, he had set out to conquer it! These conquering individuals did not understand that all was connected. Instead, they believed in Separatism. They could not understand that by destroying Nature they were also destroying themselves. Their motto was this: “Every man for himself.” They also believe in the saying, “The person with the most toys wins.” However, this competitive philosophy is destroying our world. We are seeing a shrinking of the middle class, while the low-income citizens are increasing in record numbers. Millions have lost their jobs, houses, and businesses. For many, it is a constant struggle to put food on their table, never mind the mountain of bills that they have to pay as well. In 2009, President Barack Obama commented on the effects that our recession would have on the world:

“Due to the ongoing recession, the number of chronically hungry people will climb to over one billion worldwide.” ~Barack Obama, July 2009

In poorer countries, it is well known that many people are dying of starvation. How can this be possible when Nature supplies us with an abundance of nourishment? Experts say that we have the resources to feed the entire world, but for some reason this is not happening. It would appear that there seems to be a force that is preventing this from happening.

We Live in a Plutocracy

Plutocracy = Rule by the rich

In the United States, we are lead to believe that we live in a democracy; however, this is not entirely true today.

Our Founding Fathers ultimate goal was Democracy. It was to be a form of government that served the people. However, the goal of the Banking Elite was totally different. If they could control the creation of money, then they could control the government and its citizens. In 1913, President Woodrow Wilson helped pass the Federal Reserve Act, which gave a private banking cartel the power to create money. President Wilson eventually regretted passing this law:

“I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is now controlled by its system of credit. We no longer a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.” ~Woodrow Wilson, 1919

Here is what former President Franklin D. Roosevelt said about the banking cartel:

“The real truth of the matter is that a financial element in the large centers has owned the government since the days of Andrew Jackson.” ~Franklin D. Roosevelt, 1933

Now, here is what Louis McFadden had to say about the dangers of a private banking cartel:

“A world banking system was being set up here…a superstate controlled by International Bankers…Acting together to enslave the world for their own pleasure. The Fed has usurped the government.” ~Louis McFadden

Even the extremely wealthy banker, Mayer Amschel Rothschild, Founder of Rothschild Banking Dynasty, was not shy in sharing his view that he did not have to answer to the government:

“Give me control of a nation’s money supply, and I care not who makes the laws.” ~Mayer Amschel Rothschild

If it is true that our Founding Fathers, as well as other brave souls, have been battling the Banking Cartel for centuries, why isn’t it front page news?

Conan O'Brien Exposes the Media

Who Controls the Media?

The reason why you do not hear about this is due to the fact that, now, six corporations control 90% of the United States media. Over a fifty year span, it has changed from one hundred corporations to only six. Who are the six corporations? They are Comcast, Disney, News-Corp, Viacom, CBS, and Time Warner. It is also important to note that if you have the power to influence the government--because you control the money supply--it should not be too difficult to control the media as well. Check out what John Mayer said about the media and how information can be bent to serve one’s needs:

“And when you trust your television

What you get is what you got

‘Cause when they own the information

Oh, they can bend it all they want.”

Another individual that has shown that the media is being controlled is the late night television host, Conan O’Brien. In a couple of video clips that you can view on Youtube, he shows how the different news stations from across the country are reading from the same script, word for word. Now, let me share an example of how the banking cartel sought to brainwash the public:

In 1877, a letter from James Buel, Secretary of the American Bankers’ Association, was sent to his fellow bankers in order for them to try to convince the newspapers (the media of the day) that Lincoln’s debt-free Greenbacks were a bad thing:

“It is advisable to do all in your power to sustain such prominent daily and weekly newspapers, especially the Agricultural and Religious Press, as will oppose the greenback issue of paper money…

To repeal the Act creating bank notes, or to restore to circulation the government issue of money, will be to provide the people with money and will therefore seriously affect our individual profits as bankers and lenders…”

As you can see, the bankers were only thinking about their personal gain. It was all about profits. In the first paragraph, we learned that the bankers were advised to influence the media. In the second paragraph, it explained that government issued money would put a damper on their profits. Now, let’s move to the third paragraph in which the bankers are instructed to talk to their congressman:

“See your Congressman at once and engage him to support our interests that we may control legislation.” ~1877, letter by James Buel, Secretary of the American Bankers’ Association

Why Is the United States in So Much Debt?

The reason why the government and its citizens are in so much debt is due to the way that money is created:

Money is created by the bank (The Federal Reserve) as interest bearing loans.

What this means is that the government and its citizens have to pay back this loan with interest. However, the biggest flaw of this system is the interest is never created, meaning that there will never be enough money in circulation to pay off the loans. Put simply:

The interest due on the loans will eventually reach a point in which it will be larger than the nation’s income.

In order to put this into perspective, imagine that the interest that you owe on your credit cards is $2000, but the amount of income that bring home is only $1800. Anyone can clearly see this is a big problem. In order for this individual to get out of debt, he or she may have to increase their income or cut back their expenses, file bankruptcy, or do the illogical thing and try to borrow their way out of the mess, as our government appears to be doing. According to the United States government, the National Debt is $16.7 trillion. However, the website “Institute for Truth in Accounting” believes the number is much higher: $74 trillion. Several years ago, when General Motors was in serious financial trouble the answer was to give them a loan. However, logic will tell you that debt added to debt, will not subtract debt, it will only increase it. Financial expert, Byron Dale, said it perfectly:

“Nobody can borrow themselves out of debt. No more than, like I said before: You cannot drink yourself sober.” ~Byron Dale

Now, let’s hear Thomas Jefferson’s thoughts regarding the government’s borrowing:

“I wish it were possible to obtain a single amendment to our constitution…Taking from the federal government the power of borrowing.” ~Thomas Jefferson

We are told by financial experts, including Ellen Brown, the author of “The Web of Debt” that there is a way out of this financial mess:

“Our government should never go into debt. It doesn’t need to go into debt. Our government can issue the money it needs.” ~Ellen Brown

12 Year Old Explains How the Banking System Works

Debt-Free Money

What! You must be joking? Is there such a thing? Yes. Our history is filled with periods in which debt-free money was issued for the benefit of the people:

  • The Roman Republic had debt-free money. However, one of the Roman Empire’s emperors put a stop to this.
  • In the United States, there are four examples of debt-free money: Colonial Script, Continental Currency, Greenbacks, and the 1792 Coinage Act.
  • In Canada, they had the Bank of Canada.
  • In England, King Henry issued Tally Sticks.

In the 20th century, another attempt was made to bring back debt-free money to the States. They were referred to as Silver Certificates.

Colonial Script

“In the Colonies we issue our own money. It is called Colonial Script…We control its purchasing power, and we have no interest to pay to no one.” ~Benjamin Franklin

Continental Currency

This debt-free money was issued by the new central government.


Abraham Lincoln returned to debt-free money (1861-1885). However, in 1886, a year after Lincoln’s death, Congress passed the Contraction Act to retire the Greenbacks.

“The underlying idea in the greenback philosophy…is that the issue of currency is a function of the government, a sovereign right which ought not be delegated to corporations.”

~1902, Dr. Davis Rich Dewey

1792 Coinage Act

The 1792 Coinage Act allowed individuals to take their gold or silver to the mint and have it turned into coin free of charge.

Bank of Canada

The Bank of Canada issued debt-free money from 1935 – 1974. This bank was created to end the depression as well as finance public infrastructure.

Tally Sticks

Tally sticks, introduced by King of Henry of England, lasted 726 years.

The Silver Certificates

On June 4, 1963, John F. Kennedy signed Executive Order 11110, which authorized the United States Treasure to issue $4 billion worth of Silver Certificates. These notes were debt-free money. Sadly, this life-freeing gesture was short lived. JFK was assassinated five months later. Imagine the world we could be living today if the government and its people weren’t buried to the neck in debt. Instead of a slave-based currency, we would have a currency system that would benefit the masses, not just the privileged few.

Returning the Monetary System Back to the People

We know that in the past there were monetary systems that were in place that served the people, but how do we bring this about today? It is clear as day that our current system is broken. It has stripped from us the prosperity that nature intended for us all. This debt-based system only rewards the people at the top while the rest scrabble for the crumbs. Our Founding Fathers risked everything for democracy. They did not intend for us to be slaves to the Big Bankers. Each one of us is powerful beyond belief, yet we have bought into the idea by the media that we are just a biological consumer machine. Nonsense! We are creative spiritual beings here to do wonderful things.

It is time for the people of the world to unite and help one another.

We can start by educating one another about monetary reform. We can write letters or make phone calls to our local congressman. We can support our fellow monetary reformers, or perhaps, start our own group. This monetary reform can start at the state or federal level. Right now, there are 20 states that are considering some type of bank legislation. North Dakota has a state owned bank. It formed in 1919. I would, now, like to leave you with a list of monetary reformers, along with additional websites.

      Marie, thank you very much for your comment and support. It is sad that we have stepped out of alignment with Nature. Thank God that we have the alternative media and open/aware souls that are doing their part to awaken the planet.

      Terry, This is a very informative article. You brought into my awareness about what is going on with regards to the misuse of money. I didn't know who the 6 corporations were that control 90% of USA media. The media of course has the ability to manipulate it's citizens.

      It's disturbing that with Nature being so abundant, humans have not found a way to be totally in alignment with it and feed all of its citizens.

      I have share this in Pinrest. Voted up!
