    Usury: A Short History of Banking

    Usury: A Short History of Banking

    Surely the Government is in control of the country and its supply of money? Surely money is only a symbolic token to facilitate the production, exchange and distribution of goods and services? Not so, say the Third Positionists, who reject both Capitalism and Communism...



    In the old days there was no paper money. The accepted token of exchange was precious metal minted into coins by the Church and the Crown. Because there was only a limited amount of gold and silver available, the economic life of the nation had a certain regularity.

    An even greater restriction existed throughout Christendom. This was a prohibition against usury, or charging interest. The Church held it to be a grave sin and the code was upheld by the civil powers. There were harsh penalties for those who broke the law.

    The regulation of usury was to prevent the separation of money from reality. Money is not a good, it is a measure. It is fraud to pretend otherwise, and constitutes theft. Usury is making money from lending money; it is making money from nothing. This is exactly what is happening today on a colossal scale.

    Several important things arose from the prohibition of usury in medieval Christendom. Firstly Jews, who had taken to wandering around Europe in the Middle Ages, began to specialize in money-lending and other practices which were forbidden to Christians. Exploited Christians, both peasants and aristocracy, found themselves being bled dry by usurers, which is why there were sporadic uprisings, imprisonments and expulsions of Jews throughout Europe. It is one reason why King Edward I expelled these perfidious people from England in 1290. Oliver Cromwell allowed them back when the moral authority of the Church was undermined and the King was beheaded in 1649.

    Secondly, gold coins, jewels and other valuables were deposited with people who held strongboxes. This was usually with goldsmiths and money-lenders who, more often than not, were one and the same. These loan-sharks and scriveners realized that, without much chance of being found out, they could charge people for looking after their deposits and then use those deposits – which did not belong to them – to make loans to other people at interest. They soon became rich and powerful.

    Gold coins are heavy and awkward to carry around so the custom arose whereby the money-lenders would issue credit notes to depositors who began to trade these notes between themselves in commercial transactions. Paper money had come into existence.

    A new form of usury developed as the swindling money-lenders realized the immoral benefits that could be obtained from such a situation. It became apparent to these thieves that they could go one step further than dishonestly using other people’s money for financial advantage at no cost to themselves. They could invent money from absolutely nothing. They could issue credit notes with nothing to back them up and put them into circulation as interest-bearing debts. No-one would be any the wiser. They calculated that they could safely issue notes for up to ten times more than the gold deposits they held, because the depositors would never ask for their deposits back all at the same time.

    The principle of modern banking was thus established: invent money from nothing, put it into circulation as "running cash notes" that have to be paid back with real wealth that is produced from our labour, sit back and become unbelievably wealthy and powerful men: hidden rulers of nations.

    In England this deceitful system was officially sanctioned in 1694. The usurper of the throne, William of Orange, had overthrown the legitimate King James II with the financial backing and plotting of powerful Jewish financiers in Amsterdam. In return he gave the sovereignty of England to a group of financiers by means of a Charter allowing them to call themselves the Bank of England. The Charter made no mention of issuing the nation’s money, but within minutes of signing the new Bank officials were discussing the form of their "running cash notes." The same system was adopted in every country by a process of Masonic revolution and manipulation.


    FREEMASONRY AND COMMUNISM

    Socialist theorists and ideologues have never attacked the essential mechanism of capitalism. Although the injustices of the capitalist system have been attacked in volume after volume, and rightly so, they have never even hinted at the usury upon which the whole system is built and from which all the other injustices stem.

    Perhaps this is because so many Communist leaders are Jewish. Most of the ‘Russian Revolutionists’ of 1917 were actually Jews from the lower east side of New York City. Two hundred and seventy-five of them were conveyed to Russia aboard the S.S. Christiana, led by Trotsky and financed by Kuhns, Loebs, Schiffs and Warburgs. This cosy circle of Jews and Freemasons financed both sides of the Great War.

    Marx and Engels, two more Jews, wrote the Communist Manifesto on behalf of a secret society calling themselves ‘The League of Just Men.’ This secret society was an arm of the Illuminati, whose power and influence was the catalyst of the French Revolution. One of the founding members of the Illuminati was the House of Rothschild, the Jewish banking house which practically invented supra-nationalism for personal profit.


    THE SITUATION TODAY

    Nowadays banking has become extremely sophisticated but the hidden and usurious mechanism behind it remains the same. After a big enquiry, hushed up as much as possible, the Bank of England was nationalised in 1946. In theory control of the Bank of England should then have passed from a group of private individuals to the British Government, but this is still not the case. Nationalisation only added a thin veneer of respectability.

    The British Treasury, in conjunction with the Bank of England’s advisers to the Government, determine how much paper money and coin will be issued each year. This has to accord with the wealth of the nation for that year. But because banknotes and coins only account for a tiny percentage of financial transactions, it makes no difference to the bankers at all. Most financial transactions are carried out with abstract figures on a computer screen that have no relationship to real wealth. Everything has to be paid for at interest though – even when it doesn’t exist!

    The Government still has to pay interest on old and new loans from the Bank. Only a few years ago it was announced that the interest debt on a loan taken during the Napoleonic War had just been paid off! This is where much of our tax money goes.

    THE NEXT STAGE

    The next stage of development for international finance is to get rid of cash altogether. Then the token accountability of the bankers will disappear along with the cash. Their intention is that everyone will have to use credit/debit cards for every type of commercial transaction.

    Electronic technology, when used this way, and when it is not merely widespread but compulsory, will give them complete control of every man, woman and child in the world. If you cannot buy or sell – food, petrol, clothes – without a card you are completely at their mercy. If you lose the card or it doesn’t work for some reason you will suffer until issued with a replacement. If you make a protest against some particular injustice they could invalidate your card. The next time you go to the supermarket your card may not work. You won’t officially exist!

    Who benefits from such a scheme? The politicians or the bankers? To ask the question is to answer it. The Bank of England is the real, but hidden, government of the country. The Government and the politicians are merely puppets controlled by the Bank – or, more accurately, the international banking families. None of our cowardly politicians dare stand up to these hidden and unelected rulers of the world, so powerful have they become. Two American presidents, possibly three, were assassinated for attempting to do so. It is far easier for them to submit to the system and enjoy a rich life than expose the real tyrants: tyrants who cause high taxes, unemployment, war, famine and misery for the rest of us. But these despots of the New World Order forget that Truth is more powerful than they could ever become. And Truth brings Justice!

    The problem is not paper money however, but that the banks in control of the money creation process are more or less in private hands, controlled by a largely unregulated minority, which, with this mean, can control and blackmail the people, ordinary workers and the greatest businessmen alike!

    Gold or other valuable metal were and are no solution, no better alternative, as you can guess what, the plutocrats, the money lenders, got rich with the gold standards also!

    The governments-states had to buy the gold, so its bad enough to have loans and interest rates because of financing a war, social or economic programs etc., but its even worse to make depths by buying the gold from the controlled market.

    Gold in itself is largely as worthless as paper money is, its value being determined equally by those controlling this commodity.

    So the real solution is definitely and without a doubt, no private "National Banks", no "Gold Standard" and a much stricter, better controlled banking sector: If private banks at all, without or just a very limited fractional system and state controlled banks, under the control of the people, being always an alternative for important businesses.

    But this would mean a generally different social and state system from what we have now and it would also mean to break the power of the Plutocratic Oligarchy, producing and exploiting the current systems weaknesses to their benefit, lust for profits, power and control.

    The FED system is a criminal financial manipulation, not because using fiat money, but because serving a minority's interest and this minority's interests alone!

    The gold standard was already the first step towards pure fiat money, because gold was, after all, just linked to paper.
    Reinhard Deutsch makes an excellent case for a dual-metal-standard, free of any fiat money (only in terms of the old "Wechsel" [bill of exchange ?])
    I really recommend his book Das Silberkomplott.
    Such a dual-metal-standard works completely free of any direct governmental interference.
    However, fiat money in governmental hands has certainly some advantages, but all in all, the best would be to have two competing systems, and then the "better" money, will soon replace the worse.

    This might sound good in theory, but I doubt it works in practise. Money is just a needed tool for our economies, there might be many alternatives thinkable, but what we know is the current private bank system with fiat money is one of the worst possible options and a gold standard equally bad.

    I just doubt that the old dual-metal standard from the past would work out in the greater context of a bigger, national and transnational economy, but, thats more of a intuition based on facts, than a knowledge or logical conclusion from a sufficient amount of facts so to say - at least in my case

    I always thought paper money started out as a receipt one would receive after depositing gold with a goldsmith.Fractional Reserve Banking was created when Jewish Goldsmiths like the Rothschilds from Frankfurt,Germany started issuing out loans on other peoples gold.
    The goldsmiths recognized that only a fraction of depositors ever came in and demanded their gold at any one time, so they found out how they could cheat on the system. They started to issue more receipts than they had gold to back those receipts and no one would be any the wiser. They would loan out these receipts which were not backed by the gold they had in their depositories and collect interest on them.
    This was the birth of the system we know today as Fractional Reserve Banking, and like this system of today this meant the goldsmiths were able to make astronomical amounts of money by loaning out, what was essentially fraudulent receipts, as they were for gold the goldsmiths didn't even possess. As they gradually got more confident they would loan out up to 10 times the amount they had in their deposits. This is basically the same system the Federal Reserve in the United States uses.Ever wonder why the price of Gold goes up when we are in a recession due to the fact of Inflation of paper money.The price of Gold goes up to cover the extra paper money that is in circulation.

    Money should cease to be a means of usury and theft and domination, and be given back its original role as a means of exchange. Its value should be based on work, not on any natural commodity such as gold or paper. Its value should be kept constant by regulating the money supply according to the work done and values created.
