The Secret of Oz and Money As Debt 2

The world economy is doomed to spiral downwards until we do 2 things: outlaw government borrowing; 2. outlaw fractional reserve lending. Banks should only be allowed to lend out money they actually have and nations do not have to run up a "National Debt". Remember: It's not what backs the money, it's who controls its quantity.

It is well known in economics academia that The Wonderful Wizard of Oz written by L. Frank Baum in 1900 is loaded with powerful symbols of monetary reform which were the core of the Populist movement and the 1896 and 1900 president bid of Democrat William Jennings Bryan.

The yellow brick road (gold standard), the emerald city of Oz (greenback money), even Dorothy’s silver slippers (changed to ruby slippers for the movie version) were the symbol of Baum’s and Bryan’s belief that adding silver coinage to gold would provide much needed money to a depression-strapped, 1890s America.

We believe Baum’s symbols represent the only solution to relieve the growing economic hardship here in America – and the rest of the world. Practically speaking, 2009 marks the 70th anniversary of the 1939 MGM release of the The Wizard of Oz movie, so interest will be very high.

 















Money as Debt II Explores the baffling, fraudulent and destructive  arithmetic of the money system that holds us hostage to a forever  growing DEBT ... and how we might evolve beyond it into a new era.












“Banking doesn’t involve fraud, banking IS fraud.”

Tim Madden, monetary historian & consumer advocate


"Only when the last tree has died and the last river has been poisoned  and the last fish been caught will we realize we cannot eat money."

Cree Indian Proverb


'And it seems to me perfectly in the cards that there will be within the  next generation or so a pharmacological method of making people love  their servitude, and producing … a kind of painless concentration camp  for entire societies, so that people will in fact have their liberties  taken away from them but will rather enjoy it, because they will be  distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda, brainwashing, or  brainwashing enhanced by pharmacological methods.'

Aldous Huxley, 1959



'I know the secret of making the average American believe anything I  want him to. Just let me control television.... You put something on the  television and it becomes reality. If the world outside the TV set  contradicts the images, people start trying to change the world to make  it like the TV set images.....'

Hal Becker, media 'expert' and management consultant, the Futures Group, in an interview in 1981.
