The banking industry is unique among businesses.
It's unique in that it's the only industry that can
lend/sell you a non-existent product and charge you rent (interest) on the
use of its product. Rental business owners can't get customers
to pay rent for the use on non-existent cars, or for the use of
non-existent tuxedos or non-existent bicycles? How many
people are going to go to a restaurant and pay for a non-existent dinner or pay rent for the use of a
non-existent house or a non-existent apartment?
at the same time, right now, you and I and everybody else who owes money to a bank or to credit
card company is paying his/her hard-earned money (transferring some of
his/her goods and services) to the super-wealthy money lenders for the
use of their make-believe (fiat) money.
how the scam works: The
super-wealthy have set up a banking and financial
system that replaces real money with fairytale,
money. It's money not because it has intrinsic value. It
has value by declaration only. It's called fiat
money. They have simply declared that they ( and
they alone) have the right to print counterfeit money
(create receipts for goods and services) and pretend that
their receipts have real value. (The
money in your wallet and in your bank account is
"fiat" (make-believe) money.
time they add more fiat money to the financial system, (such as giving
billions of these make-believe dollars to the bankers) that new money steals
its value from the money already in the monetary system. That's why
you pay higher prices for
gasoline, food, rent, medicine, and everything else
people buy. The dollars become
less-valuable, therefore it takes more of them to
pay for your goods and services. Here's a simple example: In
1913, the year that the Federal Reserve took
control of the American monetary system, a postage
stamp cost one cent (one penny).
Today, the cost is forty-five cents
You Are Being Milked for Money You and I, small business
owners, and the general
public borrow the banker's money. We work diligently to produce goods and
services and then we give/pay some of our real goods and services to the lenders
(fees and interest charges) as payment for the use of their non-existent,
make-believe, fairytale, fiat money.
Then while we struggle to survive, the super-wealthy
spend their make-believe money on real goods
and service and live extravagant lifestyles
using this stolen wealth.
This technique for milking the public for money has been
going on for so many years (since 1913) that it's considered normal and almost nobody
questions the validity of the system.
