Roger Lewis shared a memory.

A year since I Finished this Poem which took me 3 months to write.The notes are due a  re-read as this poem covers the 12th century to modern times mostly, whereas the Conquest of Dough covers the period from 10,000 years BC to the present day, people say the World is a small place and that Human history is a Blink of an eye, what? 12 seconds of twenty-four hours. If you consider that we barely know the reality of what happened and was reported on the 6 o´clock news last night. The World is a very large Place and very diverse and Human History is a very long time and the subject of the craziest game of Chinese whispers ever.

We know very little, understand even less and it is a toss up whether we care more about the truth or justification, what is clear is that all our Institutions have nothing to do with truth and everything to do with Justification.

An interesting discussion Wesley and John boiling down the technical arguments from the political seems to have evaded you both it must surely be possible absent moral/political judgements to discern how the existing system operates in The Uk and The US and elsewhere, after all the systems exist? A favourite dialogue of mine is the one between Proudhon and Bastiat summarised here. I share Proudhons view regarding Interest and see the charging of Interest as the biggest problem of the monetary system. Jeremy Benthams in defence of Usury is in the Bastiat Camp albeit a dialogue between Bentham and Adam Smith ( interestingly one sided reminiscent of Sam Harris engaging Noam Chomsky, Smith did not respond at all though.) The question about issuing money is surely that when Money is created out of thin air it should be spent into existence without interest and that if Interest is thought to be a good idea then the Interest Component should be created at the same time. This is the fundamental question ( Bentham misses it completely and so does Bastiat in my recollection of the debate. I personally have philosophical, moral and religious objections to the charging of Interest, all Interest charges for me are usurious, My own political views actually reject Capitalism as well I do not think it works. We do have the system we have though and as JohnG says MMT is supposed to describe how the system we have works. Steve Keen is very good on endogenous money creation and bears very close attention I find. . Regardless of Political views it is the interest element that causes the damage when money is created as debt. This is the insight at the heart of the social credit movement.

This is an interesting Article. I have encountered other reports from both the United States and the United Kingdom which discuss the Moslem Brotherhood.
One way of looking at the Moslem Brotherhood is as a Political Think Tank not dissimilar to other Globalist Think Tanks whose aims are to promote Globalism and neo-liberal economic goals.
Although called the Moslem Brotherhood and broadly positioned as Islamic it is more precisely Islamist in a political sense and not a reli...

Roger Lewis7 April 2017 at 12:56 Syria is all about Gas, not poison Sarin Gas but Gas Pipelines. It is also not about Hydro Carbons in themselves but the market for hydrocarbons and which currency contracts of supply are settled in otherwise known  as,  US petrodollar hegemony.

Meet The Fuggers, Brexit, The Euro and Clueless Elites.

Meet the Fuggers or, its the Money Power stupid. Brexit, The Euro and clueless Elites.

The Eastern Roman empire under Justinian saw the seeds of its final fall to The Ottomans when Abd El Melik started paying tribute in Gold coinage under his own Political Branding you might say.

With all the talk of Brexit being the removal of a final obstacle to the deeper federation of a European State transcending tiresome nationalism, perhaps a little review of History, particularly Monetary history, might not be such a bad thing.

In the review of European competences carried out as a consultation by the foreign office regarding Brexit and or reform requirements of the Eu, two of the papers need to be considered in the context of the Money power argument.

The first paper considered is the Subsidiarity and proportionality aspects of the Lisbon treaty and the competences of the EU institutions vis National and regional democratic institutions. This is a trade-off between Centralised Efficiency and …

The 2015 turnout was 66.1 % overall. around the same as 1997 general election less than the 77% for the 92 vote. Historically the 1950 and 51 elections had over 80% turnouts.
