om världsläget

Mer om det dramatiska och tillspetsade världsläget och om en utveckling som kan inge visst hopp, från larouche.se – Greker, syrier och ryssar spräckte västvärldens fasad

Den gångna veckan har öppnat möjligheterna för västvärlden att hitta tillbaka till sin humanistiska sida, sedan den grymma imperiepolitiken klätts av på front efter front. Grekernas väljaruppror håller på att spräcka hela eurosystemets tvångströja och diktaturlösningar. Det största oppositionspartiet Syrizas unge ledare Alexis Tsipras har vänt på Bryssels och finansmarknadernas utpressning, till även tidningen Dagens Industris förtvivlan. Tsipras säger att, eftersom den nuvarande politiken att låta Grekland kollapsa drar med sig hela EU i undergången, måste EU avbryta åtstramningspolitiken och satsa på tillväxt för alla medlemsländerna. Sådana ord kan dessutom ge anklang hos den nye franske presidenten Hollande, som också kräver tillväxt och bankdelning.
Den amerikanska banken JP Morgan har avslöjats med jätteförluster i London, som redan har ökat från 2 till 5 miljarder dollar, men de kommer att öka ännu mer eftersom banken kommer att få svårt att i detta läge avveckla hela denna värdepappersaffär på 100 miljarder dollar. Sedan återstår att se hur stora förluster JP Morgan har i sina övriga derivataffärer på minst 70.000 miljarder dollar. Tvåmiljardersförlusten utlöste omedelbart i alla stora amerikanska media en nödvändig diskussion om återgång till bankdelningslagen Glass-Steagall. Även kreditvärderingsinstituten erkänner nu att EU:s banker är ruttna och nedvärderar dem på löpande band.

Lösningen, makten över pengarna och penningskapandet måste tas tillbaka av det allmäna, presenteras av Ellen Brown i ett referat om Public Banking-konferensen i USA 27-28 april – The Revolution Will Not Be Televised: Quiet Drama in Philadelphia

Why does there always seem to be enough money for military expansion, prisons, bank bailouts and tax cuts for the wealthy, but not enough for education—or for jobs, housing, healthcare, or old age pensions? These are not “welfare” but are part of the social contract for which we pay taxes and make social security payments.

As was cynically observed in a document called the Hazard Circular, allegedly circulated by British banking interests among their American banking counterparts in July 1862:

[S]lavery is but the owning of labor and carries with it the care of the laborers, while the European plan, led by England, is that capital shall control labor by controlling wages. This can be done by controlling the money. The great debt that capitalists will see to it is made out of the war, must be used as a means to control the volume of money. . . . It will not do to allow the greenback, as it is called, to circulate as money any length of time, as we cannot control that. [Quoted in Charles Lindburgh, Banking and Currency and the Money Trust (Washington D.C.: National Capital Press, 1913), page 102.]

The quotation may be apocryphal, but it graphically conveys the fate of our burgeoning indentured class. It also suggests the way out: we must recapture the control of our money and banking systems, including the issuance of debt-free money (“greenbacks”) by the government.

The direct solution to the economic crisis, urged by veteran money reformer Bill Still, would be for the federal government to simply create the money it needs, as the American colonists did by printing paper scrip and Abraham Lincoln did by printing greenbacks.
But cities and states don’t need to wait for a deadlocked federal Congress to act. As Wong-Tam has proposed for Toronto, they can divest their public revenues from the too-big-to-fail banks and put them in their own publicly-owned banks. These banks could then do what all banks do: leverage capital, backed by deposits, into money in the form of bank credit.
This newly-created bank money would then be available for the use of the local government interest-free (since the government would own the bank and would get the interest back as dividends). Among other possibilities, the money could be used to restore the schools

We live under a tyranny today that is just as intolerable and unjust as that in 1776, but violent revolution is no longer an option. Our oppressors own the military and the media, and their FEMA camps are waiting for us.

If change is to come, it must be peaceful and legal, beginning with a revolution in the minds and hearts of the people. The message of the Public Banking in America Conference was that we can throw off the yoke of the financial elite by making money and credit a public utility; and the most feasible place to start is at the local level, with publicly-owned banks.
