#101: Implicit Bias

We have been hearing this term used lately, usually as a political weapon to trigger various unthinking emotional responses for deliberate (on purpose) political purposes, apparently with little regard for truth or the consequences, because the first consideration for any government is to remain in power.

Unlike explicit bias (which reflects the attitudes or beliefs that one endorses at a conscious level), implicit bias is the bias in judgment and/or behavior that results from subtle cognitive processes (e.g., implicit attitudes and implicit stereotypes) that often operate at a level below conscious awareness and without intentional control. The underlying implicit attitudes and stereotypes responsible for implicit bias are those beliefs or simple associations that a person makes between an object and its evaluation that “...are automatically activated by the mere presence (actual or symbolic) of the attitude object” (Dovidio, Gaertner, Kawakami, & Hudson, 2002, p. 94; also Banaji & Heiphetz, 2010).

So anyway, with this as a point of departure, just what are the implicit biases of this blog? What of how those affect this blog's money proposal? (I suppose I could have called it a monetary proposal instead, so if it matters to anyone, it's the same thing, OK? We're talking about money, the possibility of YOUR own money, not THEIRS).

Yes we have a few biases. They aren't that implicit though, things like forbidding lending what you don't have to lend is a good example. But here's one big implicit bias: respect that every human being has the right to be a participant in the societies they naturally choose to form with other human beings and that especially includes those by nature, by kind, by family, by culture, by religion, by race and by nation as it is ever conceived: self determination from the individual right on up through all his/her natural groups is an implied bias. This emphatically implies that we wish to respect and recognize differences rather than strive for sameness across all possible social and political projections and interactions. Notice please, we didn't mention, nor do we wish to involve, as Riegel naively did, any participation by any state. This effort must be PRIVATE or it simply will not work. It is part of the relinquishment of the reliance on any nanny state and taking on responsibility for oneself, one's fellows, one's community, one's nation, etc. Rejection of any argument by authority alone is an important step forward toward discovering the truth and beginning to live one's life accordingly. That also relates to the inner track 

We accept and celebrate any and all diversities and differences among us, but in all our dealings with each other, we all recognize SANITY and its opposite, and we don't need anyone special to tell us the difference, and most importantly, we all strive to live with the REASONABLE EXPECTATION of continuing peace. By never intending to do violence to anyone, we do not invite it upon ourselves: the golden rule.

So, we do not try to be all the same, because we are not all the same and would not be happy being all the same. We consider this the basic understanding of liberty, freedom, independence, self determination, the right to live life as one can and will by one's own efforts, nearly synonymous with the proclamations made by Thomas Paine and associated as the base of self esteem and self worth – the basis of innate wealth, which must of course provide an income. We call this free enterprise or more precisely PRIVATE enterprise, which we critically separate from any notions of capitalism; the making of money on money without effort, without work, without the “owners of capital” contributing anything more of themselves than their idle money into the effort of the project or business.

Our implicit, not so implicit bias, is to stand against globalism, statism and the idolatry of institutional authorities everywhere; the more arbitrary they are, the more distant they are from us and our will. Understand, people, this IS about our will. Will we bring this proposal about or will we continue to surrender our individual and local wills to those who frankly have never been worth our trust … and we will continue to be THEIR (globalist, central banker, elitist) slaves?

Let's take globalism. That's an ism with the globe, so when you itch it, it gets worse. This proposal, as E. C. Riegel intended it, must be considered at the atomic level in society: it affects everyman and everywoman above the age of 18 until it can be made legally to apply to everyone.

The proposal must be atomic, because the proposal pertains to this blog's sincere contention that Riegel was correct in his assessment of money; though the “public” issued money we use IS money, because it performs the spit barter function and moves trade, nevertheless, due entirely to who issues it, all of it nevertheless is regarded as illegitimate money – yes, you can think of it as counterfeit money, just as Riegel did. All of this “public” money was not issued by the right people, whether backed by anything or not. THAT is our principal contention and intentional bias; that the problem with the present money is NOT that it's fiat, but that the fiat has been STOLEN by the bankers who have no right to it. Ultimately the bankers are the enemies of all mankind and all their manifestations are being revealed daily as institutions of evil caring nothing for the common people of the world. That fiat, that will, was STOLEN from each of you! Our proposal turns this one on its head!

What of precious metals as money? Well, Riegel said they were worth something, but we weren't exactly sure just what. Who makes the determination what any of these metals is worth? Someone else does, in some far away market in some far away city and the amount of either metal you would have to possess to influence any prices for it in any of the other brands of THEIR money would be tremendous, so forget it. You can't even get delivery on any of their contracts unless you're “special” and that usually means governments and banks, not you or me. Just go ask Gerald Celente if you don't believe me.

You see, none of it is really your money, never has been and never will be. Our not so implicit bias stands against most schools of economics as nothing but apologies for the present structure of the present monetary order (disorder). The “Austrians” are EXPELLED for extolling usury, which when practiced as it is everywhere, asks back what was never created, therefore STEALING from everyone else. The Keynesians are EXPELLED for all their fiscal policy schemes which together with the banker's credit cycles, always promote a choppy and unpredictable economic and financial horizon – that's being kind.

So precious metals, the oldest of THEIR money, are commodities that were widely FORCED on everyone to be used as money (yeah, the “Austrians” are callous liars!) and we need a point of monetary exchange with the rest of the world.

You want to prove your money has some value? Only exchange it for gold and silver. Will we exchange ours for silver or gold? Sure, in OUR prices in Valuns, which will always be higher than in any other “public” money anyway. Value? Intrinsic value? Intrinsic value of money? Stop it right there! You have mixed two incompatible concepts. What have we said about money? It is as Riegel said, “a method of stating a value determined by exchange.” We state our prices in Valuns.

As far as we know, V1,000 (One thousand proposed international standard value units or Valuns) = 1 oz gold bullion, both at the inception date and even though the price of gold has fallen around 26% since inception, the Valun has remained where it began at 11/2/11 and that pinnacle piece of purchasing power that was $2.16 at inception is now $2.73 (10/25/16).

What that means is that today were our system up and running and our A members proffering dollars or some other currency for Valuns, we'd be buying approximately 26% more gold (or silver) than at inception to make the exchange. That will pretty much always happen too. We do intend on becoming principal buyers in both precious metals markets as we will not pay any government taxes in anything but proceeds from our precious metals sales. These exchange provisions allow us to preserve our independence from THEIR monetary system.

But let's get back to the individual rights issue for a moment and how that relates to promoting and rewarding innate wealth. It involves what some might call human potential. Remember all the “human potential” movement business of the 1970's? Whatever one might have considered its uses or drawbacks, this movement was successful in getting large numbers of people together to improve themselves. People who were attracted to these packaged gestalt therapy workshops were in their way trying to find and express their innate wealth and succeed in business and in life. Many people were hugely benefited by such programs.

Why didn't it work out better for more who attended these workshops? Nine times out of ten, it was due to lack of money, of THEIR money of course. If you don't issue your own, then it's THEIR money, even if the tokens are made of silver or gold. And then, it's commodities traded on exchanges where THEY determine the prices for these things in THEIR money and you have no say in it at all. But for those who actually attended any of these programs, their future lack of money was usually used to repay more debt that must be paid back with interest to some bank.

What if we solve the money issue once and for all? What if the money unit proposed is specifically designed to hold its purchasing power against all other brands of THEIR money? What if you can't get any of our money which would really be your money until you join us? What if the worst happens and we're the last money left standing? We could be too: it's all up to you.

If you are in some inner city community or out in the impoverished countryside, the combination of our labour contracts and the self financing of labour plus the Valuns issued and earned, thus backed in the process, and you might end up with the difference between survival and extinction, or empowerment vs. slavery. Remember, we will all have to find out what we are skilled at enough to command a price in Valuns. It would be a good idea to acquaint yourselves with the proposed Valun scale as related to US dollars. There would be a similar relationship between Valuns and any other of THEIR “public” currencies. Also remember, OURS is a PRIVATE currency, a PRIVATE enterprise money.

#100: A Statement on Political Agnosticism

It begins with disbelief; we do not believe in the government, not as an institutional reality, for certainly governments are real, but in the sense of having any faith in them to accomplish anything we'd be better off deciding for ourselves, among ourselves in our local communities. Increasingly governments have become perceived as dangerous, ineffective, inefficient, expensive and generally offensive to more and more people. We're speaking here of belief as something that at least used to exist when I was a child; belief in government was almost universal back then, disbelief is almost universal now.

It began for most who were alive to remember it, with the assassination of JFK, not that there hadn't been instances aplenty before that event that should have alerted us to the criminals at their work. Further research down those rabbit holes are covered everywhere else from a variety of research perspectives, etc. Same with 9/11, arguably the next big event that has led to the estrangement most really feel from their governments. It is very much like falling into disbelief in one's god or gods or losing one's religion. This notably does NOT usually result in everyday people losing their civility; as we've said, most acknowledge SANITY and its opposites and wish to live in situations promoting the REASONABLE EXPECTATION of continuing peace. Most know that exactly the reverse of these are usually the result of governments.

Connected directly with this loss of faith and trust are the loss in faith in THEIR (globalists, central bankers, elites) THEIR monetary instruments and institutions; THEIR money and THEIR banks and very frankly the faith and trust of the general population in THEM personally and institutionally; certain institutions are widely recognized as centers of evil.

Seeing only part of what would happen; incessant inflation, E. C. Riegel aimed at reform. But his reforms would have been mere bandages on an essentially rotten structure based on a fraud. He never got that far with it. He likely knew more than he wrote. After all, there is theory (often and usually written down) and then there is actual experiences (rarely rendered in written words) but known nevertheless among the few who actually do know.

This loss of faith and trust is an indication of danger to everyone. If you have structures of such incredible power that are no longer regarded with anything but fear, loathing, horror and disgust, then we have arrived at the worldwide gulag, where all the tokens of the masters are chains of our slavery. Expect nothing from THEM as THEY have all THEY need and want, unless it is even more and more and more people dead, which is what THEY have long said THEY want.

By the way, THEY had all American citizens enslaved under the 14th Amendment which was never ratified according to the rules for amending that agreement, which has been broken many times before and since then. We'll have more to say about the US Constitution perhaps later in another post.

We will ultimately have to decide for ourselves, among ourselves, just how we will settle things among ourselves (our own money) because as the mentor who gave me this assignment told me the last night I saw him was that the present monetary order was ultimately doomed to fail. He told me he didn't know of anyone more capable than I to figure it out and begin telling the public the best way I could. This man was well placed, British, a veteran of Eaton and Oxford, one who could and did put the letters FRSA behind his name. I didn't know what he was talking about until I read E. C. Riegel a few months after he died. Perhaps he doubted that governments would even be there in the future. He didn't know, and neither do we. We just realized into the bargain that we didn't know what we thought we knew and had to begin from new principles that no one else but Riegel and Kitson somewhat before him and probably others also would have ever accepted, simply because they are so obvious:

Money springs into existence when someone buys something -takes possession of some thing -a good or service- instead of directly bartering for it. The medium used as money could be anything. If it's tokens made of precious metals, then someone else determines what that gold or silver is worth and that changes from day to day and in some way the gold or silver participate in determining the values exchanged in all sales using them. If one uses gold and silver tokens, one is bartering the value established by others at time of sale of the value of the gold or silver with whatever good or service exchanged for it.

We have also seen that all money dies ultimately in depreciation; one cannot resell anything for what one paid for it due to depreciation and in the process money actually dies. Oh, some say real estate rises in value, though it also can dramatically fall in value. Does silver and gold die? Not usually. Any or all of it can usually be extracted and reused. But just because something has been used as money doesn't make it so. This was mentioned by Arthur Kitson, when he described silver and gold disks of similar weight but void of design losing their ability to function as money; merchants simply wouldn't accept them as money without them!

So it isn't just the precious metals themselves, it's about some idea of a shared limited supply of money contributing to stable prices pitched by almost all of THEIR academic economics. You know what, people? THAT idea is absolute garbage! The truth is that if some cult gets to determine what passes for money; precious metals and uses FORCE to make sure it is the only money used, and if they control the whole thing from mining through minting, then they get to maintain THEIR political-economic control of everything including you.

This proposal IS important. It's about real freedom for you and for everyone. It can't be accomplished without discipline. The proposal is an accounting machine that runs according to some simple but firm rules. It will take much COURAGE to bring it about. It will be a mixture of something now perhaps old fashioned and something brand new, the people themselves carrying around the best looking paper tokens of OUR monetary system, and something new; the building up of grass roots, eye to eye, totally local, but coast to coast across America and around the world in every country free enterprise! The world can and would be free from most forms of slavery, poverty and war.

I don't know whether anyone figured this out yet, but I'll describe it here: essentially the V-Check proposal is that a kind of universal check becomes OUR currency. Notice that these aren't exactly duplicate interchangeable tokens that could be easily counterfeited. Oh no! Each one is a transaction against a common account used for tracking them. They are anonymous so they become cash.

We see much in the background now that is preposterous or completely insane and certainly does not promote the REASONABLE EXPECTATION of continuing peace. But perhaps and probably, just a little bit, more if you look real hard, it was always preposterous and completely insane. It's just that we didn't know any better than we do right now. We just never saw it. What more ghoulish horrors does the establishment have in store for us? Why do we need to continue following them? You all know why. It's THEIR money, that's why. You really want to be free? You're only as free as you can issue your own money and together with others locally and around the world, begin changing course.

The proposal had nothing for THEM. THEY already have everything. The proposal was for US. The message was “come out of her, my people,” also from my deceased mentor. You will all have to know in your bones that ultimately you will have to renounce the demons, THEIR system and THEIR money. In order to do that, you really will need and want your own. Be seeing you.

PS: This blog is nearing its fifth anniversary. Usually an enterprise must run for at least that long before it is considered viable. We haven't received a fraction of the attention this proposal demands. I suppose everyone will just continue to do what they're doing until it is too late. As long as we can, we'll continue to update the fixed measuring stick of value, the proposed Valun, for all to read. Right now it stands at V1 = $2.74. It would never fall below $2.16. Best.

#99: Racketeering instead of Real Business

Warren Pollock mentioned it here and it struck me as so important that it deserved a paper concerning it. Why? Because we want to understand it and be on our guard.

Racketeering obviously involves a racket. A racket is anything that takes money without delivering a good or service. A racket is a theft by any other understanding. So racketeering would be what the racketeer, the operator (thief) of the racket is doing to promote it, etc. Even our taxes are supposedly buying us something in return and most governments do know how to play this one or they would be replaced by governments that do it better (socialism to make up for the scams of capitalism). War is obviously a racket. We're going to suggest that THEIR entire system is precisely a racket to benefit THEM for doing nothing. That's what makes it so perfect for the perpetrators; they can attempt to be doing something while doing nothing and still get paid, for doing or producing or growing nothing.

Racketeering is obviously often associated with organized crime -so we'll include in here banks and governments- the act of offering of a dishonest service (a "racket") to solve a problem that wouldn't otherwise exist without the enterprise offering the service. Racketeering as defined by the RICO act includes a list of 35 crimes. Let's list them ok? From the law itself:

(A) any act or threat involving murder, kidnapping, gambling, arson, robbery, bribery, extortion, dealing in obscene matter, or dealing in a controlled substance or listed chemical

(B) any act which is indictable relating to
sports bribery,
counterfeiting, [of THEIR money and financial instruments, etc.]
theft from interstate shipment,
embezzlement from pension and welfare funds, [what banks are doing now]
fraud and related activity in connection with identification documents [who does that?]
fraud and related activity in connection with access devices [who does that?]
the transmission of gambling information
mail fraud
wire fraud
financial institution fraud [THEIR entire system is built on fraud]
fraud in foreign labor contracting [THEY are guilty of this]
the procurement of citizenship or nationalization unlawfully [and how about that including voting rights?]
the reproduction of naturalization or citizenship papers [same here]
the sale of naturalization or citizenship papers [no doubt]
obscene matter
obstruction of justice [all the time]
obstruction of criminal investigations [what have we just seen?]
the obstruction of State or local law enforcement [ongoing]
tampering with a witness, victim, or an informant [happens frequently]
retaliating against a witness, victim, or an informant [same here]
false statement in application and use of passport [ditto here]
forgery or false use of passport [no doubt]
misuse of passport [etc.]
fraud and misuse of visas, permits, and other documents [happens all the time]
peonage, slavery, and trafficking in persons [where do you suppose the undocumented aliens come from?]
economic espionage and theft of trade secrets [what THEY do]
interference with commerce, robbery, or extortion [what THEY do]
racketeering [see our general definition at the top of this article]
interstate transportation of wagering paraphernalia
unlawful welfare fund payments [ditto here]
prohibition of illegal gambling businesses [the legal ones are allowed to run as if they are legitimate, etc. to benefit THEM]
the laundering of monetary instruments [THEY do this all the time]
engaging in monetary transactions in property derived from specified unlawful activity [Right, unless THEY are doing it]
use of interstate commerce facilities in the commission of murder-for-hire
illegal money transmitters [we have heard so often it's no longer shocking]
sexual exploitation of children [who does that too?]
interstate transportation of stolen motor vehicles [where does ISIS, etc. get theirs?]
interstate transportation of stolen property [etc.]
trafficking in counterfeit labels for phonorecords, computer programs or computer program documentation or packaging and copies of motion pictures or other audiovisual works [because those belong to someone after they sold them to you.  That's the weird and wonderful world of "intellectual property"]
criminal infringement of a copyright [sure, more of the same]
unauthorized fixation of and trafficking in sound recordings and music videos of live musical performances [right]
trafficking in goods or services bearing counterfeit marks [like what do you call all their unsound money?]
trafficking in certain motor vehicles or motor vehicle parts [again, look at ISIS]
trafficking in contraband cigarettes
white slave traffic
biological weapons
chemical weapons
nuclear materials
dealing with restrictions on payments and loans to labor organizations [oh, cheating the labouring classes?  and who does that?]
relating to embezzlement from union funds [or stealing funds from anyone.  bankers do it all the time]
fraud in the sale of securities, or the felonious manufacture, importation, receiving, concealment, buying, selling, or otherwise dealing in a controlled substance or listed chemical
(E) any act which is indictable under the Currency and Foreign Transactions Reporting Act,
(F) any act which is indictable under the Immigration and Nationality Act. [really? unless you're who?]

This list provides us with a convenient list of activities and businesses that would be thrown out of our VEN and for which IVES policing would serve a purpose.  All of it is of course PRIVATE.  Now, just go down this list and notice all and everything that goes by being regarded these days as legitimate businesses (especially on line) when they are nothing but rackets operated by racketeers (thieves).

Seriously folks, the proposal of this log is NOT on this list. First of all none of any of our money will be issued based on any of these frauds, many of which are practiced by the “too big to fails.” One cannot claim the same for very much of THEIR money. But right now we have plenty of people out there being paid to run rackets.

I don't know what else you could be doing, but being a pilot fish running beneath a shark isn't economically speaking a very good position to be in. These days, with narcissism and sociopathy running amok all due to THEIR money system, one could expect little better.

Real application of skills? Most who have any aren't being paid for their use anywhere anymore. In 2010 across the upper Midwest (I was there, I saw it) there was much farmland that was NOT under cultivation and we heard that more and more land was being left fallow. We heard stories of harassment of farmers, fewer farmers, big corporations taking over, then hiring foreigners who lived in separate quarters. What was going on?

We were in northern California in the spring of 2015 and the place looked dry (of course) and fewer people than expected were out and about or doing much of anything. You could hardly call it bustling. But we heard of the huge roaming homeless populations. What's going on? Nobody has anything to do to be paid for – no work. No work, no economy, no future. Want that? 

We had a young man write in who told us he knew nothing, had no idea about his skills. We have millions of people around the world who have grown up and don't know anything, most importantly they don't know about themselves. They don't even know what they're good at because nobody thought it important enough to find out. A lot of us are just waking up to the carnage of our cultures, the destruction of our wealth. Where did it go? How do we get any of it back? Who are we to be askig any more from our benighted leaders? Why do we stop at the use of ANY of THEIR money, including gold and silver?

Gold and silver, precious metals, cast them into round disks and you get people to fall for one of the oldest rackets in the world. Think about it. Meanwhile we have no actual wealth – none of it provides us with any income, and 93 million people are out of work in America. I crossed America in 1998 too and it wasn't much better back then. Fact is the whole thing has been grinding down for a long time. Some places that are used to it for longer than other places look more dilapidated, but life manages to go on, and on, and on, people waiting and waiting (restaurant jobs are about all that's left) and waiting, etc. It's all financial at the end of the day and power is finance at the end of the day. That's what it is, THEIR biggest racket of them all.

#98: More Awakening of the Masses

We hear of more pleas to politicians to provide a “hand up” rather than a “hand out.”

Stop asking the government to do anything about it – Kennedy was right, don't you remember? We MUST do it ourselves, and it wont cost us much of THEIR money to do it either. What's 1 Valun today? V1 = $2.68 (9/30/16) or $2.74 (10/4/16)? That's still not much. It's what each A member of any American exchange might expect to pay each year in dues. Now, multiply that a few hundred thousand times to get the effort off the ground and you see the potential. But we WILL have to organize and that takes a lot of time. Our organization is going to have to go door to door and eye to eye to get anywhere because the internet, nice as it is, is not reality. Each of us already has far too much time on our hands because we are mostly OUT OF WORK.

A hand up? Why can't we do it ourselves? I wrote on the principals of self -financing of labour in OUR money, not THEIRS; “render unto Caesar” etc. here and here.

This entire proposal deserves SERIOUS consideration: it's based on private contracts and the right to engage in private contracts under natural law; the most basic of all law. We are now openly considering the possibility that some form of guild or trade association formations within the proposed VEN (wherever Valuns will be accepted in trade) would be inevitable as people will want to standardize both skills and training but practice as well. THIS IS THE ONLY WAY FORWARD TO BREAK THE GRIP OF THE OLIGARCHS; THEIR SYSTEM MUST FAIL else the planet is quite literally doomed. It will soon be impossible to hide the lies much longer from everyone, too many are noticing things now all over the world.

But what does this mean? Let's start with a few perceptions that we would like widely propagated:

Let's start with THEIR Constitution of these United States. It was a document conceived in infamy (behind closed doors and under armed guard), dedicated to the proposition that some men are indeed more equal than others (bankers and capitalists mostly, but there are others too) and it would be THEY who would determine who “We The People” actually were, and no it's not us, though that's been the lie THEY have told us for a very long time. We were all told that in THEIR schools, remember? (To skip the digression – continue in the next paragraph)

Digression – Education for the future: There was a time when there were private schools everywhere presided over by schoolmarms and they taught everyone how to read and write and do arithmetic. Those who went to higher education paid for that too and the courses of study started with the trivium and the quadrivium. They also learned to read the Bible in ancient Greek. There were other private associations that taught people trades, how to do things of use with their hands and their minds. All of that and what went with it was deliberately destroyed by the capitalists, globalists and the worldly oligarchy that pretends to be what it isn't. People talk more about getting things back, even of going backwards. That's not quite the idea we're advocating but close. How on earth do you suppose we are going to get anything back? 

There are some who request a “return to the Constitution” as a remedy. This document was an agreement between the new Federal government (wrongly called a national government, since it wasn't) and the creditors of those who owed them money from before the time the Constitution was drafted and ratified which the creditors demanded be paid in nothing but gold or silver, so AGAIN these metals were NOT freely chosen by the common people -who had then and still have little to none of them anyway- as the “Austrians” and their “gold bug” stooges continually vomit forth upon our better judgment.

NO common people ever freely chose gold and silver, it was ALWAYS FORCED on populations. Since the “Austrians” also continually extol usury (a proven mathematical fraud with the intent of theft as a reward), they are EXPELLED from further consideration as knaves and assholes! And we don't even allow that much consideration for the Keynesians as they're one stroke away from being the command economists of the Soviet Union. We saw just how well that worked now, didn't we? It worked only for those that raped that country of its natural resources under THEIR otherwise misguided, heavy handed and incompetent centralized rule. All centralized anything eventually topples of its own DEAD weight.

Most people, when they think about the US Constitution, really mean the Bill of Rights, which are the first 10 amendments of a document that wouldn't have passed the state legislatures without them! That part of this sordid agreement is OURS. Have THEY kept THEIR part of the bargain? No, they haven't. So what good does it make that agreement? How long ago did it fail? 1861? What on earth are we living under now then? That's part of the waking up process.

Anyway, the body of the Constitution was largely THEIRS, especially everything to do with GOLD and SILVER as settlement for debts. WHY? Because the basis of the Constitution was the agreement that we would pay them back our WAR debts to them in THEIR money not ours! I want all that to sink in for a while, because as I have always said, THEIR money includes gold and silver. NONE of it has ever really ever been yours or mine. In fact until 1971 didn't we make it illegal in the United States to own it? Wasn't it the bankers only that could ever own it? Isn't that what the “gold bugs'” intentions might include without their knowing it?

Asking or even worse demanding the government or their banker masters to do anything for you is a really bad idea. Into the bargain they send more of your children off to die in more senseless wars that further enrich THEM, not you. Why not walk out on them? Because of THEIR money, that's why. So why don't you have your own? Oh, you mean more of THEIRS? No, THEIRS is THEIRS. You didn't have anything to do with it except by the accident of your birth and that THEY decided to make some money on that fact.

THEY have controlled gold and silver since antiquity from the mines to the mints and they certainly determine what prices all exchanges for in all the other brands of THEIR money too, not you or me. The “gold bugs” have been being all along pushed forward by the same rogues who would like nothing better than to go back to the “gold standard” so they can further strangle development, depopulate the earth, and make more on the speculative ups and downs in THEIR private money, the precious metals.

Seriously folks, those who believe the “Austrians” become THEIR useful idiots for another of THEIR most ancient scams! The bankers' dialectic is THEIR credit or THEIR gold (and silver). If you don't happen to think so, they have made it so in recent legislation allowing them to claim certain things about THEIR products and THEIR money that infer that THEY own it whether you are holding it or not, OK? It's called “intellectual property” the cursed garbage law from the times of the French revolution. It's time to think about leaving THEIR sinking ship. You don't need gold or silver to do it either.

I'm further going to add that THEY deliberately destroyed the fiat currencies of these post-revolution United States (before the Constitution) and the Revolutionary governments of France too. THEY deliberately pressed out as many counterfeit continentals and assignats as they could and distributed them, deliberately inflating the money supply so both currencies crashed. Helping their intentions along, THEY broadcast through THEIR journals of the day just how bad the continental was and lo, “not worth a continental” was spread as the inflation grew all due to offshore counterfeiting. Typical? What would you expect from the oldest crime syndicate in world history intent on promoting its eventual monopoly of world money after 1815?

THEN they deliberately blamed the inflation THEY deliberately caused on someone or something else!!! THEY always use projection! “It's not my fault, it's yours.” Gold and silver are THEIR money and THEY did not want any competition. There is tremendous power in controlling the money and THEY have always known this. Falling for the “Austrians” or the Ron Pauls (sorry, but I only speak what I know to be true and Dr. Paul is only expert at delivering babies) or any of that baloney is becoming one of THEIR useful idiots.

Get your heads out of your asses! Gold and silver are THEIRS. Ultimately renounce them! They are only an exchange vehicle from THEIR money into OURS and there's NO WAY BACK. You get OUR money and you spend it on goods and services that WE produce. And what happens to any gold and silver we get? We keep it in vaults and use it to pay any nasty government (they're all nasty until proven otherwise) what they demand in THEIR money stated in THEIR Constitution! Of course we'd sell the metal to get THEIR currency and pay our taxes with that. But you get where I'm going.

The “cash” in our proposed system – the V-Check - obeys Gresham's reverse law, a real natural law, which states that the representation of the monetary unit that is the cheapest in actual value drives out all others from circulation. We contend that money is only a means to split barter. Nothing else. If you want to take your chances against the probable success of a Valun, then by all means buy some gold and silver. We advocate that everybody still do that. Why? You're putting some purchasing power on ice, on hold. It IS a kind of insurance. How much should you have? It depends. But ultimately to have an economy, to have a civilization, requires a stable measure of value and the proposed international standard Value Unit (Valun) would accomplish that.

What would an oz of gold fetch in Valuns? Maybe it would be somewhere near V1,000 (one thousand Valuns) the same as it would have been on the Valun's day of inception. Maybe it would be somewhere above V732.81 (10/4/16). We'd never know for sure because there is no pegging to any commodity, else what would be the worth of any money as a universal measurement of value? Hence, with gold falling 27% against the Valun (dollars too) as of 10/4/16, we'd demand more gold than at inception in trade for one Valun and the price in Valuns is likely to be no higher than V1,000 and no lower than V732.81 on 10/4/16. That's more likely. If a new higher inception is required that new higher inception would begin at V1,000 and if the oz of gold then fell again, it would require more gold to buy a Valun. The Valun always requires the highest piece of purchasing power regardless of what any of THEIR money does in THEIR markets for it.

Remember, we are showing everyone a way to look at money, that money which would be ours. The electric metaphor theory is best, with the ultimate ground being fully depreciated assets that are beneath even considering for sale to recyclers and foundries. We generate the money through work, some of our money is allowed freely issued by the poor who will only be able to issue enough for their subsistence as determined by the community. Some of our money is traded into our system through bartering gold and silver.

In fact from a business standpoint, if the entire VEN business, the entire Valun exchange network, is relying on income from yearly A member dues and exchanges of gold and silver, then that is the only way the business forms a taxable interface with any state under which it operates. The gold and silver, being THEIR money, are the obvious vehicles for raising more of THEIR money for paying taxes.

As for silver, we began with a ratio of silver to gold of (2160 / 42.24) of 51.14. Now, a ratio of (1582.88 / 22.14) 71.49 to 1 exists (10/4/16). At inception 1 oz Au = V1,000 while perhaps today 1 oz Au = V732.81 and 1 oz Ag = V19.55 at inception but only V8.09 today (10/4/16). In Valuns the ratios were at inception, (1000 / 19.55) 51.15 to 1 and today (10/4/16) they are (732.81 / 8.09) 90.58 to 1. This means that silver has fallen farther in price/value than gold since Valun inception and that your silver buys even less than gold does since inception by compensating percentages; right now we see a 27% gain over all other money in Valuns. They work as a sound theoretical basis to base a standard current for the money. Everyone knows that a Valun equals a piece of purchasing power at a particular TIME and that what one trades for today represents the present value of that transaction. Now then, just what did you say that piece of precious metals was worth? Right. Let's move on to the next issues, how to get businesses to understand and use Valuns and make this a reality before THEIR Titanic sinks, OK?

Current Hypothetical Value of a Hypothetical Value Unit

[10/8/16 Q: I'm a young guy reading this and have no idea what you're talking about because I've never had a job. I spend my days in my dad's basement playing computer games. He's retired early and we kinda live on dad's pension and a few odd jobs he gets around town, but nothing regular. You're right, there isn't any money. Everything is falling down. It's their rules. We don't know about skills. We have their rules. We went to school. I don't even write very well. Lucky I can read. We know nothing. Jarred, Texas

A: You see how deep a hole we have dug for ourselves? Ignorance is profound. I'm thankful I got such a response. It's like being told that some of the worst things they show us on their TV networks is really the truth; millions of people ground down into the lower middle class, or the top end of the poor classes, all acting with the least intelligence required to sort of just get along. Passing time, wasting time. Doing nothing because there are no prospects for anything better. All because some people with more of THEIR money than we had just up and left the rest of us behind? Is that what happened?

They sent everything overseas and left us nothing but our blown out inability to find any words with which to express our emotions, to react to having our livings taken from us? Why don't we do something about it? Because apparently a lot of people out there can't even do that much.

I'm finding out that most of the people I know are out of work or very busy working several part time jobs. Yes, their rules have pretty much destroyed so much real wealth that there's very little left. Some are calling it a “scorched earth” policy. They destroy in order to murder, starve and kill as their prime objective is depopulation. They hate us and want to destroy us. Are we going to just sit around and let them do it to us? That too was one of the reasons for this blog. THIS is something to do at least as a start. Have I received anything like any adequate response? NO! The responses that filter in remain a trickle. Fact is everything is grinding down to a complete stop. The only thing that seems to be moving at all right now are politics and military actions. The rest of us remain in our positions, going about our daily routines, expecting nothing to change very much but expecting the worst, just not knowing or comprehending what that would be. It will all go on, people going out to eat, etc. until it wont go on any further. What then? There are hundreds of thousands of people like Jarred. Be seeing you.]
