While’st They bankrupt the Country- we sit quietly by…..

George Monbiot on printing our own money

If the state can’t save us, we need a licence to print our own money in the Guardian is a good overview of what we’ve all understood for years: the centralisation and monopolisation of national power has been winning over local and town initiatives, by the strength of national currencies.

  • Fiat money is bad, whoever prints it, because absolute power corrupts absolutely, and power to print money is absolute power. We need gold backed currency that can’t be manipulated.
