Usury, not money, is the proverbial root of all evil.
You know, I get into Nit-Picky arguments all the time on the "Root of All Evil" question.
Biblical Literalists like Ashvin will point out that what the Bible says is the "the LOVE
of Money is the Root of All Evil". Gold Bugs make the case its FIAT
Money that is the Root of All Evil. Here, Eisenstein makes the case that is not Money ITSELF
that is the Root of All, but the INTEREST
on Money that is the source of the issue here.
Break all these arguments down here a bit. You can't LOVE money if money does not exist in the first place. WHY do people "Love" Money? Duh, because in a society and economic system where money is the gateway to all you need to LIVE, you HAVE to love it. If you are not out there scrounging for Pennies, you are on the Bottom here and getting fucked up the ass on a regular basis.
Making the Money GOLD instead of FIAT does not change that problem at all. Now instead of scrounging for Paper or Copper Pennies so you are not bottom of the pile, you gotta scrounge for much less available Gold coins! In this environment, you have even MORE people who are getting Sodomized.
Interest? Where does that one come from? Well, if everybody NEEDS Money to live, to have access to the Grain in the Warehouse for a meal, anybody who actually HAS some excess money can Loan it out to poor souls who have none and ENSLAVE them in Debt Servitude the rest of their lives paying off the Interest on the Loan! GREAT FUCKING DEAL for whoever either controls the Big Pile of Gold OR who controls the Printing Press and Credit Creation either way here. Control either one of these things, you never have to work for your daily bread another day in your entire life! OTHER people have to slave away digging coal out of holes in the ground to pay off your loans to them for the Coal they purport to "own". Nice Racket if you can get it here, and our Illuminati Masters did get it and have been living quite well on this racket for 6000 years or so now.
Once you establish MONEY as the means by which all of the society's
extraction of resource is measured, those who control the resources get rich and stay rich through the Interest system.
You cannot ELIMINATE Interest from a Monetary system. As soon as Money starts circulating, some people Got Some, others Got None. The GNs have to borrow from the GS's to get some. Yes, on the lowest level your Penurious sort who works and saves his pennies offered up to him for his labor sometimes in some surplus societal organizations can do pretty well, but NOBODY EVER got RICH
on their own labor. You have to control a conduit (Patents, Copyrights et al), control a resource (Oil, Farmlan etc.), control a Means of Production (factories), or control Labor (various forms of Slavery here involved at all levels).
Boil it all down here, it is NOT "Love", "Fiat" or "Interest" that is the ROOT
of All Evil here, its the MONEY
itself! It busts the society up into Haves and Have Nots, Jealousy and Greed quickly follow thereafter, Stealing becomes endemic among the Poor and Sloth ad Gluttony pernicious among the Rich, the poor Prostitute themselves and the Rich take advantage of them in every Sexual Perversion you could possibly imagine. Where do all those SINS come from? MONEY!
THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL!!!!!!!!!!!
