"The financial markets are humming and life is good."
Illusions are appealing.
They give us a sense of security.
TOO BAD they're not REAL!
And when REALITY checks in, illusions come crashing down.
The problem springs from man's abilty to dominate others through ILLUSIONS.
A selfish greedy few employ ILLUSIONS to control and command the many without regard for sustainability.
This is a recipe for DISASTER.
INTEREST is nothing but an ILLUSION sustained only by False Accounting.
Nothing but an accurate account of REALITY can correct the systemic problems we face.
Accounting for EVERY externality, in determining the value of conduct, is the bottomline to a sustainable existence in REALITY--the only place in which REAL people can exist.
Instead, a selfish greedy few have been allowed to run amok with INTEREST, ruthlessly ignoring the costs, until its true nature can no longer be concealed.
At some point, the ILLUSION runs up against REALITY and simply CANNOT get around it.
Interest is never ISSUED; it is only CHARGED.
It is an ever-growing NEGATIVE force on our economy.
It is ever-growing because selfish unfettered greed is INSATIABLE.
If left unabated, it will continue until the devastation and destruction is so pervasive and severe that our civilization collapses.
But, there is HOPE.
In THREE EASY STEPS, we can correct the mass destruction that INTEREST has visited upon us.
STEP 1: wrest control of the money supply from the selfish greedy lunatics that are currently at the helm
STEP 2: establish a decentralized, interest-free, nonprofit banking system.
STEP 3: channel ALL our wealth into rebuilding our lives and communities, WITHOUT diverting massive amounts through interest to those not entitled to it.
For now, mine may be just a DREAM, but unlike illusions, my dream is firmly grounded in REALITY.
So, I will continue trying to set the record straight, for those who care to listen.
