If I was diagnosed with an illness, my willingness to accept the diagnosis and treatment would depend on my level of trust of the physician. I would not have surgery, take dangerous medication unless I had confidence in the competency and integrity of the specialist
Imagine a specialist that allows our modern society to avoid barter as our means of exchanging value. We could pick any token for this unit of value: cowry shells, rose petals, salt, ground ivory, bits of metal, or pieces of special paper.
The group that controls that unit of exchange must have the confidence of the population using it. However what happens when that said group is now the source of the injustices in the world?
What makes the situation even more untenable is that this group – let’s call them bankers – have special clubs that refuse to allow public scrutiny. They demand immunity from investigation and also insist on our trust in the control and creation of the units of exchange: dollars, pounds, cowry shells, bits on a screen.
The customers of these bankers that create and manage our units of exchange, begin to wonder how they got so much of it. How did these groups amass so many cowry shells, or bits of metal or even piles of paper? They begin to wonder when this convenient tool of exchange was subverted
If you found a piece of land abundant in cowry shells, shiny stones, bits of yellow metal or could make piles of special paper, you would have a massive “store” of these units of exchange. This would give you a powerful influence in what work was done.
What happens when we see clearly that the cowry shells, piles of paper, shiny stones, byte-coins, bits of metals are just replaceable but convenient tools. We have all agreed to the mind-trap, we can all agree to reject the provenly fraudulent and corrupt “bankster” specialist.
You could focus your “stored” units of exchange on weapons manufacturing, building a militia, funding a priest class to obfuscate reality, surveillance systems, social rules enforced by policy enforcers, etc.
Integrity is therefore key to trust in any unit of exchange. The more intangible the unit of exchange the more integrity matters.
That our units of exchange, money is managed by a corrupt, psycopathic group that is indifferent to social consequences and refuses to submit to social scrutiny is becoming clear to more people. Why are the Federal Reserve and Bank of International Settlements (B.I.S.) immune from lawful and legal scrutiny? Have they not been accomplices in multiple financial deceits and frauds? If they had been rigorous in expunging the blatant frauds, their trust level would be higher.
The banksters, amoral, psychopathic, desire ever increasing units of exchange. What happens when we refuse to accept their scam? What happens when we see clearly that the cowry shells, piles of paper, shiny stones, byte-coins, bits of metals are just replaceable but convenient tools. We have all agreed to the mind-trap, we can all agree to reject the provenly fraudulent and corrupt “bankster” specialist.
What unit of exchange do you believe in? What is in your pocket?
