Good at complaining, less so at suggesting remedies
on 25 September 2013
A fine series of complaints, but when it comes to analysis there's not much there. If you give government to powerful political parties, if you give money-creation to the Bank of England and commercial banks, what can you expect except an oligarchy, growing worse and worse as their powers grow more entrenched?
The trouble is: two fine British inventions - electoral representation and bank-money - which fuelled the Empire and dazzled peoples everywhere, have now become the scourges of the world. Electoral representation, posing as democracy, gives power to hypocritical elites; central banks regulate money-creation for the benefit of governments and investors.
To restrain rampant war, economic growth and poverty, environmental destruction and armament proliferation, we need the introduction of some proper democracy and a modern system of money-creation which does not hand money direct to the destroyers of our world.
