Minus usury, capitalism would actually be stronger, they’d just want more equity or collateral to invest.
Do you want a society of savers or socialists?
I’m sure all those in favour of usury are perfectly happy that rent, FOOD, clothing etc are all going up? The purpose of usury is a universal, invisible tax on workers intended to weaken purchasing power and keep them struggling and working under the heel of the useless financial class. That caste would struggle to justify a presence in the West if we stopped allowing it (thou shalt not steal) or did it ourselves (yes, that’s an option), Christian to Christian. Honour culture style.
The hyper inflationary way we’re being led, the system that cannot last, shall not last.
Banks manufacture wars and crashes yet are above the law. The regulations are too high for local people to even start a co-op, since the crony capitalists whispered in a politician’s ear.
Cultures of decadence dating back to Rome were only introduced with the admittance of usury, so Rome was never actually Christian. All the cultural dross you complain of, is made possible only with fake money.
Europe was strong before it. When usury and a quick profit are off the table, as Luther and other great minds have noted, people invest for the long-term and value their culture. It also made us less attractive to invade or colonise…. say, with a City of Bankers, legally distinct from the capital.
Look how the Medici killed Italy. Look long and hard. They had Athenians and Spartans, now party boys.
People + Free money = Degeneracy
or the long form:
1 Timothy 6:9-10 But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation, into a snare, into many senseless and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils. It is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs.
If your regime tries to go without it, they kill you. An idea so good, you can’t show it up by contrast!
I can’t believe I have to remind people that Jesus himself ran around whipping at moneylenders.
There’s ya moral authority.
Usury is not Western. It is very much anti-merit, by suppressing the skilled with concerns of survival needs, to feed the social lampreys from their table. When was the last time we had a Newton? Pre-usury, or pre-high levels of it. The more usury a society has, the more genius withers. Why did the Renaissance end? Usury, increasing usury. Who do we need? People who add no value and provide a service nobody else is allowed to do, or geniuses that might fix our ailing infrastructure?
If we cannot trust the nominal value of the currency we use, the nation is too on shaky ground.
Whose currency is it, ours or theirs?
And why don’t Muslims have to pay it? What do they know that we don’t? If interest-free loans are an option, surely they should be open to all under the Equality Act?
Maybe you’ll believe me when bread is £50 a loaf because America stupidly invested in GMO corn and its predictable failure. Because risk-taking is good, right? The World Bank told you so. Who do you think bails them out* (or in future, bails them in)?
*QE is wide-scale usury. You have no illusion of choice in that one. The burden of debt bondage on the head of every national debtor. Alas, to whom? Who can say?
Psalm 15:5 Those who lend money without charging interest, and who cannot be bribed to lie about the innocent. Such people will stand firm forever.
Proverbs 28:8 He that by usury and unjust gain increaseth his substance, he shall gather it for him that will pity the poor.
Matthew 25:27 Well then, you should have put my money on deposit with the bankers, so that when I returned I would have received it back with interest.
Our banks don’t do that, it was covered in the BOE post. So what are the modern “banks” doing?
Ezekiel 18:13 He lends at interest and takes a profit. Will such a man live? He will not! Because he has done all these detestable things, he is to be put to death; his blood will be on his own head.
When people twig this, they’re going to be pissed.
This time isn’t different.
Do not stand in their way of justice, it is holy. Do not cry like any other socialist that it wasn’t tried “properly”. No, the system itself is evil. Fiat has been tried again and again and again and the ending is death.
Fake bubble, real pop. Order from chaos, makes us easy to control, like our ancestors before us.
In the Information Age, do we learn?
Personally, I’m looking forward to it. Staring into the abyss, you know. Sure I may not survive but who does, really? We’ll hit zero anyway, just enjoy it. Other generations would envy us the ability to witness it, test our mettle.
I’m going on holiday this week so…. bye bitches. Try to infer my class by this calendar information, if you like. I’m going somewhere with snow.
