Proverbs 22:7 This is an axiom from well over 2000 years ago, but people have not learned yet. The temptation to borrow money to escalate the rapidity of growing one’s wealth is very tempting indeed, and it’s also very risky.
Proverbs 11 deals with unjust weights and measures. How does that connect with debt? Under America’s fraudulent money system known as the Fractionalized Federal Reserve Banking System, it is possible to increase (inflate) the money supply and/or credit which devalues the currency by having more dollars chasing the same goods and services, and without those goods and services increasing proportionately, it drives up the price. Conversely, they can decrease (deflate) the money supply and/or credit which takes money out of circulation making less money available to people, and therefore, a glut of goods and services appear for which people have no money so prices drop – sometimes very precipitously.
With inflation, you pay your debts back in cheaper dollars, and everyone thinks they’re getting rich. With deflation, you have to pay your debts back with much more expensive dollars as the price of things go down. That house you own, valued at $500,000 with a $400,000 mortgage could easily go to $300,000, and voila, you owe $100,000 more on your house than it’s worth, and you can’t borrow a dime on it, but your mortgage payment stays the same!
You see, the debt remains the same, but the ability to pay it changes. In a deflationary situation, people are losing jobs, taking pay cuts etc., but the amount they owe doesn’t change. The bankers have created a vicious cycle where they pump up the money supply, and we have inflation and boom times. Then they pull the rug out from everyone’s feet, and we have deflation and a bust. This manipulation of the currency is very highly dishonest and deceives even the most savvy of people. The sad thing is that they’ve done this to the American people several times, and they still don’t understand it.
It should be duly noted, as an interjection here, that of all the dollars in the world today, only 3% have been printed. The rest are all digital (the dollar is the first crypto currency), and as such they are very easily and highly manipulable. One keystroke on a computer, and you can create and distribute hundreds of billions of dollars wherever, and to whomever you wish. Conversely, one keystroke, and you can delete hundreds of billions of dollars from whomever and wherever you wish. That’s a pretty incredible power in the hands of a private banking cartel known as the Federal Reserve which is no more federal than Federal Express!
The solution is twofold. Get rid of the Federal Reserve, and have all of the bankers involved flayed alive in the public square on television – anything less will not be a sufficient and deterrent lesson to future criminal elements such as the current cabal of banksters. Next, restore Biblical/Constitutional money which is gold and silver. Will everything be wonderful after that? That’s not likely, but it would be a whole lot better. Some will lie and say there is not enough gold to deal with our monetary needs – well, just raise the price like Roosevelt did April 5, 1933.
In response to this post and from a friend:
“None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who think they are free.” — Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Other ways to look at “Democracy”: Democracy – more honestly called “mobocracy” – is a political system based upon the concept that the majority always rules…
…because they outnumber the minority, and can beat them up.
Never doubt this: “Democracy” is rooted in pure brute force:
Every “fundamentalist” blue law imposed on a minority with differing beliefs assumes that the unbelievers will be forced to obey.
Every majority election of a politician forces unwelcome “representation” upon someone whose views that politician diametrically opposes.
Democracy assumes that three illiterate morons are somehow wiser than one Einstein-level genius… Simply because there are more of them; they outnumber him, and can force their wills upon him.
Democracy says it is acceptable to take money or property from a nonconsenting individual because he is outnumbered, a minority.
Democracy in its purest form is best illustrated by the robbery of a helpless little old lady by a gang of thugs. It must be okay: The gang “majority” out-voted the woman.
According to James Ostrowski: Democracy is nothing more than the numerous and their manipulators bullying the less numerous. It is an elaborate and deceptive rationalization for the strong in numbers to impose their will on the electorally weak by means of centralized state coercion …
Both forms of government feature voting by the people to select officials. The primary difference between them is that while republican voting is done for the purpose of choosing officials to administer the government in the pursuit of its narrowly defined functions, democratic voting is done, not only to select officials but also to determine the functions and goals and powers of the government.
The guiding principle of republics is they exercise narrow powers delegated to them by the people, who themselves, as individuals, possess such powers.
James Madison, the father of the Constitution, astutely observed, “Democracies, have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention; have ever been found incompatible with personal security or the rights of property; and have in general been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their death.”
“Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote!” (Franklin)
“Democracy… while it lasts is more bloody than either [aristocracy or monarchy]. Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There is never a democracy that did not commit suicide.” John Adams
“Democracy becomes a government of bullies, tempered by editors.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Democracy is also a form of worship. It is the worship of Jackals by Jackasses.” Mencken
“Democracy is the art of running the circus from the monkey cage.” Mencken, also
“Under democracy one party always devotes its chief energies to trying to prove that the other party is unfit to rule–and both commonly succeed, and are right… The United States has never developed an aristocracy really disinterested or an intelligentsia really intelligent. Its history is simply a record of vacillations between two gangs of frauds.” Mencken – he was on a “roll”
