Money - what government schools will NEVER teach your children about it!


"The money powers prey upon the nation in times of peace and conspire against it in times of adversity. It is more despotic than monarchy, more insolent than autocracy, more selfish than bureaucracy. I see in the near future a crisis approaching that 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 endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until the wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the republic is destroyed." — Abraham Lincoln

The reason the so-called "financial tsunami" has hit is because most people are completely ignorant regarding the subjects of Economics 101 and the actual mechanics of how mediums of exchange (aka "money") function in human societies. Any person who is curious to know how modern coercion-based monetized-debt legal tender is created should watch the excellent animated video, "Money As Debt"1. The uninitiated might might experience cognitive dissonance and have to watch the video more than once to "wrap their brains around it".

In truth, so-called "money" is a mere illusion, a delusion if you prefer, not something real. Things like houses, cars, buildings, rivers, forests, food, land, farms, dogs, cats, tools, toys, wood, metals, gold, silver, etc are real. Money in its present blatantly unjust, blatantly unconstitutional (see "The Big Lie"), state is merely a system of numbers by which self-perceived as clever predatorial individuals steal the labor of more benign, decent and gullible individuals. Many famous people have spoken about money and the unsustainable paradigm now in place, including country music icon Willie Nelson.

"Money is a new form of slavery, and distinguishable from the old simply by the fact that it is impersonal, there is no human relation between master and slave" "In order to get power and retain it, it is necessary to love power; but love of power is not connected with goodness but with qualities that are the opposite of goodness, such as pride, cunning and cruelty." "The more is given the less people will work for themselves, and the less they work the more their poverty will increase." "Governments need armies to protect them against their enslaved and oppressed subjects." Leo Tolstoy2

"That is what our money system is. If there were no debts in our money system, there wouldn't be any money." — Marriner S. Eccles, Chairman and Governor of the Federal Reserve Board

"I have never yet had anyone who could, through the use of logic and reason, justify the Federal Government borrowing the use of its own money . . . . I believe the time will come when people will demand that this be changed. I believe the time will come in this country when they will actually blame you and me and everyone else connected with the Congress for sitting by and permitting such an idiotic system to continue." — Wright Patman, Democratic Congressman 1928-1976, Chairman of the Committee on Banking & Currency 1963-1975

Real things are what they are, and they do for your life what they do. It doesn't matter whether the price of a loaf of bread is one copper penny or a truckload of "trillion-dollar" pengo notes, as happened in Hungary in 1946 during history's most serious hyperinflation ever recorded. A loaf of bread is what it is, and does for your life what it does. A loaf of bread is REAL. It's the money-number price of that loaf of bread which is imaginary. Fluctuating3 non-commodity (aka non-reality) money is merely an amount of numbers, frequently printed on paper, which represent a real thing (commodity).

Take for example the Big Meltdown, the Crash of 2008 where trillions of "dollars" of wealth are fraudulently alleged to have been lost. Houses are costing less numbers (money), stocks are costing less numbers (money), and the numbers of people's 401(k)s are dramatically lessening. Many people have lost 40-50% of their numbers (monetary "wealth").

Hey! Guess what?! Everything REAL is still here. All the REAL things, all the houses, cars, buildings, rivers, forests, food, land, farms, dogs, cats, tools, toys, wood, metals, gold, silver, etc are still here. They never went anywhere. Nothing REAL has been lost. It has merely changed ownership. It's just that the numbers of money have been fraudulently manipulated (fiddled with) into disappearing so the REAL stuff can now belong to somebody else other than its rightful owner/s. You see, it's all a big game like musical chairs to the tune of "Pop Goes the Weasel!" When the fascist neo-feudalistic transnational "globalist" banksters' music stops, lots of people don't have chairs. Lots of people don't have numbers (money) when the music stops, so the banksters get to foreclose on all the REAL stuff belonging to people without chairs.

The way you can figure out how this wannabe-clever little game works is to pay attention to who winds up owning the REAL stuff when the banksters' money music stops. Who winds up losing their REAL stuff, and who winds up as the new owners of the stolen REAL stuff. Along with many other Americans, I believe JFK was assassinated over money.

There are a number of excellent videos on money, such as "Money As Debt", "America: Freedom to Fascism", "Fiat Empire: Why the Federal Reserve System volates the U.S. Constitution",  and "Monopoly Men".

Rich people build assets. Poor people work for money. If you have to work for money, you are a slave to it, and to the people who have it. An excellent book on the subject of building wealth is Rich Dad, Poor Dad: What the Rich Teach Their Kids About Money That the Poor and Middle Class Do Not!, by Robert T. Kiyosaki, Sharon L. Lechter (ISBN-10: 0446677450, ISBN-13: 978-0446677455).

The banksters' economists refer to poor people who have to work for money as "labor resources". The Bible (Mt 6:24), to paraphrase a relevant part, says in effect, "You cannot serve two masters [imaginary money and REAL stuff - JRW]: either you will hate the one and love the other, or else you will love the one and despise the other. You cannot serve fraudulent illusions/delusions and REAL things/stuff at the same time."

The first thing you have to do if you want to be rich instead of poor is clear your mind of all the banksters' propaganda about imaginary money numbers being real. History proves America's Founders knew better! Money numbers are not wealth. Money numbers are not REAL. They are a subtle and sneaky burglar's tool by which the clever and diabolical steal the labor of the ignorant and gullible.

With the advent of computer technology, it would be quite easy to create a non-fractional medium of exchange using gold, silver and possibly even other metals. The convenience of plastic "debit cards" could still be used, eliminating the need for paper money, while the "monetary unit" could even be based on some combination of metals. That way the recycling of metals would be at a premium, ingots of surplus metals could be stored in "Fort-Knox"-type warehouses, and people could increase the monetary supply by scrounging around and keeping all the salvage metals (aluminum cans, iron, etc.) picked up and taken to recycle centers. A non-fractional metal-based monetary system would also have the advantage of being very environment-friendly or "green". Of course, legal tender laws should not be allowed, because free people in a free market should decide what they want to use for money. People would tend to naturally gravitate toward whatever medium/s of exchange most reliably maintained its "value".

But be not deceived, the transnational, "globalist", fascist, neo-feudalistic Lex Luthors who own, control, and manipulate the monopoly anti-free-market compulsory-use (aka "legal tender") fiat "flexible" money supplies of the worlds various countries would probably not hesitate to drop a nuke on a few cities if they thought they could get away with it, and say "terrorists" did it, before they would ever give up their "legal" power to create "money" numbers out of thin air so they can steal your labor and property.

Hitler henchman, Hermann Göring, expressed the fascist neo-feudalists' strategy for making the "little people" believe it would be unpatriotic to refuse to use the "globalist" banksters' fraudulent coercion-based interest-bearing fiat currency:

"Naturally, the common people don't want war; neither in Russia nor in England nor in America, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy or a fascist dictatorship or a Parliament or a Communist dictatorship . . . . voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country."

That is why government-by-secrecy , so-called "fractional" banking, the Federal Reserve System, and the Marxist steal-and-redistribute so-called "Income Tax4 and its attendant slavery, must be eliminated root and branch before there can be individual freedom, reciprocal justice between individuals, a FAIR TAX system, and truly free markets composed of willing sellers and willing buyers in an atmosphere 100% devoid of government (bankster) coercion.

Of course, that's what America's Founders intended all along (see The Big Lie)!

I have heard knowledgeable people who know this system is blatantly unconstitutional say: "Of course the Federal Reserve System is unconstitutional, but my opinion is of no effect. Congress and the U.S. Supreme Court think it is constitutional." The answer to that is: "No they don't. They are a pack of narcissistic control-freak liars who deliberately use this system to steal the labor and property of all you low-life labor resources."

“When you see that trading is done, not by consent, but by compulsion – when you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing – when you see that money is flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favours – when you see that men get richer by graft and by pull than by work, and your laws don’t protect you against them, but protect them against you – when you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice – you may know that your society is doomed.”Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged

“The laws of a country ought to be the standard of equity and calculated to impress on the minds of the people the moral as well as the legal obligations of political justice. But [legal] tender laws, of any kind, operate to destroy morality, and to dissolve by the pretence of law what ought to be the principle of law to support, reciprocal justice between man and man; and the punishment of a member who should move for such a law ought to be DEATH.”Thomas Paine

1. This brilliant 47-minute animated video was produced by Canadian Artist Paul Grignon whose work may be seen at his MoonFire Studio.

You can purchase the "Money As Debt" DVD by CLICKING HERE. You can also read about Paul and some of his comments on his movie. I especially like that he shared with the whole world how he made the movie:

"Making the Movie – the Hardware & Software used:

"All work was performed on an Apple G5 dual 1.8 Ghz  computer with 1 Gb of RAM.

"Money as Debt animations were hand-drawn and animated in Flash Professional 8 (

"The 3-D animations were created in Swift-3D ( and incorporated into the Flash projects.

"The music was created in Reason ( and Cybersynth Studio (now defunct). I am indebted to various contributors for offering free online some of the sound samples, drum loops & MIDI files I incorporated.

"I built the all the geometric 3-D models myself in Swift-3D.  (also Bryce, Cinema 4D and Carrara). Additional mesh models were downloaded from “free stuff” at and

"The final video editing was performed in Apple’s Final Cut Pro ("

2. Leo Nikolayevich Tolstoy, the author of "The Kingdom of God is Within You" and "A Manifesto for Nonviolence" (Part 1)  (Part 2) among many other works, was a major influence in the lives of Mohandas K. Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr.,  and still is a major influence in the life of your humble webmaster.

3. See (A) Caveat Against Injustice, or, An Inquiry into the Evils of a Fluctuating Medium of Exchange, by Judge Roger Sherman, the only man to have signed all four of America's most precious founding documents (ASIN: B0006EG1GM). This version has a foreward by my deceased friend Frederick Tupper Saussy, III (1936-2007), author of Miracle on Main Street: Saving Yourself and America from Financial Ruin (ISBN-10: 0911805028, ISBN-13: 978-0911805024). Tupper's official website:

4. An number of good books have been written about the Income Tax, which is not only blatantly unconstitutional from a historically provable point of view (see The Big Lie), but from the point of view that the 16th Amendment was never lawfully ratified. It was simply lied into existence in 1913 by then-Secretary of State Philander C. Knox. See "The Law That Never Was", by true American hero, Bill Benson. On Benson's website, he says, "Today, the federal government pretends that it has all encompassing power to tax the incom of everyone, and that the only way to change this system is to vote for congressmen who promise to modify or, even more unlikely, to repeal these laws. The American public needs to be apprised that another alternative exists, and that it is entirely possible to challenge the very foundation of this taxing power upon the grounds that the 16th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was never adopted. This challenge can be effectively made by exercising your rights under the First Amendment to the United States Constitution." Your humble webmaster would vigorously disagree that such a challenge can be effectively made in America's courts in their present condition. As you can see from my essay, "The Big Lie", America's judiciaries have been lying on behalf of the banksters since before the Civil War. Even if a truthful Congress (an oxymoron) were elected, the Supremes would negate anything Congress might do by crying "separation of powers!" So the only way to straighten out America's lying revisionist-history judiciaries, along with  America's criminally fraudulent and unsustainable monetary and tax system, is with a judicial reform amendment to the U.S. Constitution similar to the one I have linked.

The government is trying to shut Bill Benson up and eliminate the 1st Amendment. Benson's lawyer is Jeffrey A. Dickstein. You can read the pleadings in Benson's case on Dickstein's home page, Your humble webmaster is acquainted with Jeffrey, and can assure you he's a good, principled and brave man, like his client. On Dickstein's website, is found the following:

"The Bill Benson litigation is all about the government attempting to silence everyone who dares to speak out against the IRS and the validity of the federal income tax. The courts have repeatedly stated they are powerless to address the issue. This makes the issue of whether or not the 16th Amendment was ratified a pure, political question. As with all political questions, there must be open debate so the people can decide the truth. In the absence of debate, the governmental tyranny will continue. The debate of political questions is protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. There is, however, an open attempt by the government to eliminate the First Amendment."

Jeffrey urgently needs your help. Won't you please consider making a donation in defense of Bill Benson and the 1st Amendment? If so, just click on the donation banner and scroll down the page to Jeffrey's donation button. Any amount helps! Thanks!

(The) Secrets of the Federal Reserve, by Eustace Mullins (ASIN: B000EACCBG) - Mullins was mentored by American poet Ezra Pound, who was put in mental institution as retaliation for his opposition to the Fed. Pound, by some accused of being a fascist, had four protegés who were given the Nobel Prize for Literature: T.S Eliot (The Waste Land), Ernest Hemingway, William Butler Yeats, and James Joyce. According to Wikipedia, "As critic, editor and promoter, Pound helped shape the careers of some of the 20th century's most influential writers including W. B. Yeats, T. S. Eliot, James Joyce, Wyndham Lewis, Robert Frost, William Carlos Williams, H.D., Marianne Moore, Ernest Hemingway, D. H. Lawrence, Louis Zukofsky, Basil Bunting, George Oppen, and Charles Olson." Eustace Mullins, Pound's last living protegé, has an interesting interview on The World Order. Individuals who lack sufficient intellectual honesty, or are otherwise too ignorant, or too politically manipulative, to understand that anti-Zionism (anti-idea) and anti-Semitism (anti-person) are NOT the same thing, probably shouldn't watch the video.
