Q: Do you agree with Ann concerning interest? Ben, Utah  

A: NO. I do NOT agree with much of her analysis at all. Her idea about what money is happens to be way too complicated and cannot be born out by facts. This was presented as a NEWS item only. Her obvious pernicious interpretation of the parable of Jesus Christ in Matthew 25 is frankly quite disgusting, out of context (per usual) regarding usury and incorrect. Her reliance on the translation instead of going to original sources, well, we wont get into it further here. She has a lot of temerity to call people advocating against usury evil, etc.

Her analysis of fractional reserve lending is however quite good. But she seems unaware that the problems she identifies are structural, BY DESIGN of the present system and that there are OTHER ways to do things that make her issues irrelevant. She is far too interested in saving the present structures, which is stupid and hopeless since the same system has been tried over and over and over again with the same results. The machine itself is faulty; they can't ever be repaired. The message is “come out of her, my people” rather than trying to survive a sinking ship. Some points:

1. She doesn't connect AT ALL with the idea that ALL interest payments come from uncreated money, therefore it is STEALING!!!

2. Our proposal makes a separation forever between transaction clearing and finance (the lending of money).

3. ALL the banks use DIFFERENT ledgers. Therefore the transaction clearing and finances are jumbled together and some bad actor can go from bank to bank (as long as they will let them borrow money to get some business done) whereas ALL our exchanges will operate on the same ledger and this structural difference will identify patterns of abuse that will identify such infractions directly back to individual actors.

4. Entirely due to the confluence of transaction clearing and lending in the existing system, deposit insurance is the band-aid they put on it, covering the essential fraud of lending YOUR money whether you had anything to say about it or not and of course THEY don't tell you. Who's evil now, Ann? *** further ad homonyms deleted *** Basically, thank-you Ann for your analysis of the present order (disorder) or things, but how dare you assume that the rest of us who disagree with you really are evil. You clearly have no idea.

Q: How about her analysis of REPOS and CDS's?

A: It's totally accurate. She's describing the current scams very well. I have not seen a better presentation on these aspects of the current situation.

[10-1-16: Q: What specifically is your problem with Ann's definition of money?  Carl, Colorado

A: It wasn't simple enough.  Money as Riegel and we understand it is simply a means to split barter.  Using money of any kind does not change that.  All transactions are from labour, as Ann described it, but anything more than a bare bones definition leads to all sorts of literally unsound conclusions. 

One for instance cannot base a unit of value measurement on a unit of time because not everyone's time is equally as valuable.  To say with Ann that money must be fungible goes without saying, but as Riegel identified, ALL commodity based excuses for money are subject to manipulation, like using a ruler that changes its measurement from day to day.

Also, and quite important, all money represents uncleared barter transactions so nothing is settled until ones time is bartered for goods or services.  All the time value of money in the meantime is regarded as an opportunity to steal and has been down through time.  If Ann really wants to tag any who happen to disagree as being antisemitic (irrelevant) then she's really got some problems, fairly deep ones too.  We have to approach these matters completely as though we are looking at replacing one machine that has tremendous unreasonable and incontestable problems, and has down through time, with a newer better solution.  I'd also suggest that it would be a real good idea for Ann and anyone else to see my take on Ayn Rand's John Galt speech starting here.

Q: She's just weird.  Why did you post her?  Ken, Delaware

A: I posted Ann Barnhardt's videos as news items, specifically because she understands the present system well and explains what's wrong with it; the people.  There is a moral aspect to it all as she sees it, but doesn't understand fully as her historical references show.  But I expect that she will.]
