The Malignant Financial System By James Reed
Each week, at least one of us rages against our cancerous financial system. For a change, here is a Russian saying it as only a Russian can, so join me in having a vodka with lemon:
“Any country that does not have full control of its own financial affairs is not truly sovereign. No matter how well intentioned or patriotic its leaders may be, it will always have to operate within the artificially strict confines of current economic theories and the dominance of the international financial system. The international financial system (or, more correctly, the international banking system) may or may not be run by deliberately evil people but the top of this structure is dominated by a disdain for nationhood and thus also a disdain for community and family, a peoples’ heritage and personal freedom. No matter how noble its propaganda may sound the appalling and destructive drive for any sort of “world order” always will create “disorder” and harm. Such a highly centralized and powerful structure cannot be anything other than a war against reality and the ordinary human spirit.
It is the opposite of that for which Christ sacrificed Himself. His sacrifice teaches that the True God, our Creator and Creator of the entire amazing and bountiful universe loves each one of us intimately. Among other things when He walked on this planet He stated that He came “that we might have life and have it more abundantly” (John 10.10 KJV) This statement is too often thought to have only a spiritual meaning but is that correct? What about His teaching; “Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them.
Are you not worth much more than they? . . . 28 And why are you worried about clothing? Observe how the lilies of the field grow; they do not toil nor do they spin, 29 yet I say to you that not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these. ” (Matt. 6:26-29) Surely “life” means also our physical welfare and any sane person knows that it is nearly impossible to develop a deeper sense of spiritually in the midst of gruelling poverty or overwork. Love is suppressed when there is little opportunity for relaxation and reflection and these require economic security.”
Rather than just surviving, if people are to be fully human rather than being merely mechanical slaves of meat, they must begin to ask the big questions: why are things as they are, and how can they change? Social credit has an answer, and if you are new here, there are other places at alor.org that will fully enlighten you.
