I begin my blog today with something I read on another site that is from history. Please read this and then below at my views. Thank you.
“This was the twilight of the age of progress: the death of money.
On Friday afternoons in 1923, long lines of manual and white-collar workers waited outside the pay-windows of the big German factories, department stores, banks, offices… They all stood in lines outside the pay-windows, staring impatiently at the electric wall clock, slowly advancing until at last they reached the window and received a bag full of paper notes. According to the figures inscribed on them, the paper notes amounted to seven hundred thousand or five hundred million, or three hundred and eight billion, or eighteen trillion marks – the figures rose from month to month, then from week to week, finally from day to day. With their bags the people moved quickly to the doors, all in haste, the younger ones running. They dashed to the nearest food store, where a line had already formed. …
For money could not keep, the most secure of all values had become the most insecure. … [Y]ou could provide for the moment, but you couldn’t plan for the future. It was the end of money. It was the end of the old shining hope that everyone would be rich. The secular religion of the nineteenth century was crumbling amid the profanation of holy property.
Germany had financed her war by means of loans. The state had borrowed from its citizens approximately eighty billion marks, about a third of the so-called national wealth, and shot them into the air-without result, for the war had been lost. … The great prophecies of the nineteenth century were beginning to be fulfilled.”
-Konrad Heiden, ‘Der Fuehrer’, 1944
People seem to never learn from history. This is beginning to happen in this country, little by little.
Money has no value. It never has. It is only paper that someone backs with something else that truly has no value. In life, only people have worth in this world. It is the creator, laborer, farmer, craftsman and thinkers that are of worth.
The only way for a country to gain more worth through free education, even through college, our of children in the ways of thinking, creativity and logic. We must stop teaching them methods of solving a problem and instead, after giving them the basic methods, allow them to solve these things from their own creativity. We are losing the creativity, thinking and logic that drives this country and so many others.
Even during WWII the Nazis were not the true power behind their war. They were but pawns for the large corporations and ultra-rich of Germany. They saw a vision of grabbing the resources of the world and gaining ultimate power.
Now in the USA, corporations and these same types of people are doing the same things of history past. Events are engineered to cause fear and chaos so that their plans to rule over all will eventually come to pass. They will disarm us, track us, monitor us and eventually decide which of us will be allowed to even have children. Their eventual goal is to reduce the world’s population by 2/3’s or more so that they can survive and not the common person. They genetically modify our foods, put chemicals in them so that they last for months and even place chemicals in our water to make it “pure.” In turn all of these things make us sick, cause cancer and many other things. They are practicing the same things that the Nazis did with the Jews except on a much wider scale, selective terminations of the population.
America does not fight for freedom or for our country’s protection any longer in most places in these wars. We fight to allow these big corporations to take control of these places for cheap labor and resources. We waste the lives of our young on the need for fossil fuels when clean, free energy could be developed for all people of the world. But, this would end the power that the corporations and elite have over all, so they destroy, eliminate and terminate anyone trying these things.
Some believe that free, clean energy would begin a war to end all wars. It would actually make all wars stop. Imagine a world where everyone can live, grow and create things that they desire without the hindrance of the need for power to pump or obtain water for their land, without the cost of production of a factories power, without the need for ever being cold or hot unless we chose to in our homes. This and so much more could be accomplished through clean, free power sources to all. There would be no hunger and hardship.
In the end, the very greed that has driven the world since finding oil and other fossil fuels will be the makers of its destruction. When the corporations and others finally run out of these things, they will turn to the other things they control, such as food and control that even more. Greed knows no end, it is a cycle that must be broken, but only together can the people break even one link in its massive chain.
Only peace, love, understanding, intelligence, wisdom and tolerance will allow all of humankind and this planet to survive. We cannot allow such a race as humankind to fade in the passing of time due to our own shortcomings.
Together we can make a difference. The first step is free energy. The second foods and water free of chemicals. The third step is opening community small shops and businesses instead of the box mega stores that rule our buying. The fourth step is free medical care and education for all.
Jobs would be made for all and everyone has a talent or gift that can be used in this life. We need only find and use it instead of stifling it as our current methods of teaching do.
If we all make our voices heard for these things, we can change our world. I wish to plant the seed for a tree of life to grow. Help me water it and see it flourish for our children and their children to come.
