The Secret World Of Money

Some say that money makes the world go around. Others say it’s the root of evil. What if there were a whole bunch of hidden secrets about money that causes it to be the cause of most of the world’s problems?

Yes, there’s a double meaning in the title of this page, just like on the YOUth Will page. In this case, what you think money is, is a lie. But there’s another lie that you’ve been told for a very long time.

At the foundation of this article is the U.S. dollar. Not because I happened to be born in that country, but because, at least for now, the world economies revolve around the U.S. dollar.

Debt Worries

Quixplanation: The down and dirty explanation of a concept or idea.

The first lie is that the U.S. government is in charge of money.

The government does not print money. Rather, the U.S. Government borrows money from The Federal Reserve, who prints the money. The Federal Reserve is not part of the government and is privately held and has always been run by a small group of egomaniacal people. Some call them crooks, others evil. No matter what they are called, you will soon learn that they are not looking out for the public’s best interest.

The second lie is that borrowing money is good because it stimulates the economy.

Since the U.S. Government borrows money to stay afloat, the entire monetary system is built on debt. So much so, that most of your tax dollars are used to pay the interest that the U.S. government owes to the Federal Reserve for the money it has borrowed.

And when you go into debt, whomever you borrow from owns your ass until you pay them back. But because of interest, it is difficult to get out of debt once you have signed over your ass to the lenders.

Why are banks and lending institutions always pushing you to sign up for a new credit card or loan for that car, vacation, or house? Equity loans are one of the worst things you can do because you become even more vulnerable to losing everything. Because owning your ass is how they make money. Besides, do you really need to buy stuff for which you don’t have the funds? Visit Less Or More to learn why slowing your spending will help heal the planet.

Here’s another little tidbit. Because banks are required to hold only 10% of deposits, they can loan out 90%. So they loan money out of thin air. It’s called Fractional Reserve Banking. They only have to have a fraction of the money they loan in the form of deposits. Also, only 3% of the money supply of U.S. currency exists in physical currency. The rest is just computer transactions. Smoke and mirror, folks. Watch the video, Fractional Reserve Banking Explained in 10 Minutes, to understand how this scam works. If you or I did this, we’d be in jail for perpetrating a Ponzie Scheme.

You are going to be so smart about money when you’ve watched all those videos. And you get to keep your ass where it belongs…in your control.

“Debt is the weapon used to conquer and enslave societies, and interest is its prime ammunition.” —Peter Joseph

They Don’t Want You To Understand

If you’ve ever tried to understand economics, you probably got overwhelmed or bored very quickly. But if you don’t understand how money works, you will always be at the mercy of those who run the world economy. You’ve heard of the 1%? Well, it’s a lot smaller group than that who control the world’s financial systems.

Rather than me trying to explain how the monetary system works, I encourage you to take it upon yourself to get up to speed on this topic that has such an influence over you and everyone else’s lives. To assist you, I’ve posted several videos here on EE.

These videos will help you learn what is going on behind the scenes, who is controlling the monetary systems of the world, and why they want to own your ass.

Note: If you would like to know how your future could be better than you ever dreamed possible, without money, and without the problems brought about because of the economic system, like poverty, then I invite you to become familiar with The Zeitgeist Movement documentaries, like the one on money, Zeitgeist: Addendum – 2008

Here’s a quote from that film: “…the complexity associated with the financial system is a mere mask, designed to conceal one of the most socially paralyzing structures humanity has ever endured.”

If that video awakens your curiosity, go to TheZeitgeistMovement.com and download Peter Joseph’s book for free. Or you can order it from Amazon.com and read it on your Kindle or other kind of device.

Once you’ve educated yourself about how the money system works, you’ll experience a sense of empowerment like never before. No longer will you be at the mercy of someone owning your ass. Trust me, it’s a good feeling.

Remember that you should question everything you learn. Use the CorD Method to determine if it will help heal the planet and bring about a better future. Then become a leader and be part of Ever Evolving Vanguard, teaching others how to step out of the fog.

Two More Creepy Crawlies About Money

There are two other items that must be included in this discussion. One is how World Bank is slowing undermining most of the poorer countries that just happen to be rich in natural resources. Read this fascinating article about insider whistleblowers wanting to stop the corruption inside the World Bank.

The other item is corporations. I do not believe they set out to become evil-doers. As it is growing in its early stages, it is offering goods or services to the public that the public wants. If the corporation’s profits grow, it is because the public is happy with what they offer. Otherwise, the public would quit buying from them, and the corporation would fail.

But everything changes when the corporation decides to offer stock to the public. Instantly, the public is no longer the first priority, the stockholders are. At this stage, the corporation has to do everything possible to grow their profits. Sometimes that means they will:

  1. Ship jobs overseas,
  2. Skimp or lie on tests of new medications,
  3. Set out to dominate the world’s seeds by patenting as much of the world’s seeds, then suing farmers for using their own seeds,
  4. Ignore the consequences of their actions, not caring that they are polluting the air, rivers, and oceans,
  5. Selling tobacco products they know kill,
  6. Cutting down rain forests so cows intended for fast food chain hamburgers can graze, knowing that the soil will wear out quickly, and will require more rain forests to be cut down.

I used to have money in the stock market until I realized that the stockholders were the priority, not the well-being of the public and the world we live in. That’s when I took what funds I had out of the stock market and began investing in small start-ups.

Now it’s time to begin the process of educating yourself on what the world of money is all about. When you’re done, you’ll know more than your mom and dad, and more than most people with MBA degrees. Go to the Money Lies Videos page now.
