Money As DebtAs I have been learning more and more about the way our economy functions and how bankers have gotten us into this “credit crisis”, there has been something nagging me, a distant voice in my head shouting and pointing to the elephant in the room, the big obvious problem that no one is talking about. I have been unable to put my finger on it, and have been actively trying not to think about it. But it keeps coming back. We all hear the figures. The US national debt is increasing by three billion dollars each day. Congress proposed a 700 billion dollar “bail out package”. The question that no one ever asks, and has been nagging my logical mind is: Where does all that money come from?

You need to watch this video. It is 45 minutes long, and some of the animations are a little annoying, but it will blow your mind, scare the crap out of you, and make you smarter about understanding the economy. Not to sound all tin-foil-hat, but if I were you, I’d hurry up and watch it before the people that prefer you remain ignorant make it go away.

I applaud the video’s creator, Paul Grignon.

    That David Rockefeller quote made me physically ill. Literally, I nearly puked.

    This is what the internet is supposed to be about. Thanks you for sharing this. Everyone needs to see this.

    Well done. I remember when Obama and McCain discussed money for nearly 45 minutes during the second debate and I was wondering when they would move on to more important issues such as what size flag lapel was more patriotic and who really cares about the middle class more. But then the moderator kept asking questions regarding the Constitutionality of their positions and I was totally, like, bored. LOLZ!

    I have copied this to hard drive, should it disappear, now I will check it weekly. Made a calender to remind me and everything.

    Just to be clear, this is not a conspiracy. However, I suspect that the media’s decision to not explain this well is a calculated one. The people running the show are quite happy that the masses don’t think about where all the money comes from.

    Now that you are enlightened, it’s not like there is anything you, or any single agent in the system, can do to protect yourself. Hoarding gold will do no good, as gold’s value, like that of money, is also arbitrary.

    It is a fascinating subject and it has cleared up many doubts and questions I have had for a while. I just hope the house of cards doesn’t collapse in my lifetime.
