I went to find support for my sense that our current Pope Francis was missing his own cue for Jubilee. He has not made any statements regarding the economic situation in Greece. My call was to be: “What is Jubilee if not to stand up for debt forgiveness for Greece and all other debtors on this Earth today? The Pope named 2015 a year of Jubilee, where is he!?” Jubilee is debt forgiveness. My bad. A little research on what a Jubilee means is a bit more complex than I thought. It turns out the Pope’s call for attention on our Earth’s climate is indeed a Jubilee root call. Jubilee at its’ root is about human stewardship of our planet. http://www.christusrex.org/www1/ofm/jub/JUBmean1.html
That said, my soul is crying out about the monetary balance of power on Earth today. Money and the environment are intimately connected and today Greece has announced that it is going to print its’ own money, its’ own currency, as an answer to the untenable terms the Euro based bank’s have demanded for repayment. This kind of announcement in the past has triggered war. The Pope might just want to expand his Jubilee call after all.
The Pope could serve to secure freedom for all on our planet for generations to come if he were to make a call for the World’s Banks to take a haircut on derivatives and sovereign nation’s debt . The Pope could influence banks to clean up for the Jubilee so to speak. I certainly hope he intends to stand with Greece on their right to sovereignty. I hope all the people on this planet are ready to stand with Greece’s right to print their own money.
Choosing Honor was published in 2008. Everything I say in this book about money has become even more important today. How our world progresses is going to be up to us, the people. Ending war as an answer and developing clean sustainable resource use is in our hands. How we wield our money is going to dictate who rules. The new paperback edition of Choosing Honor has been published in support of the Pope’s naming 2015 a Jubilee year. The new format makes the fact heavy text easier to read and absorb. Knowing what you need to know to stand for what is right in the coming world conflicts has never been more vital. Find Choosing Honor on Amazon.
Uncanny use of Middle Eastern headgear on the Money Power’s heads in this historical political cartoon. Some things never change, they just become even more entrenched.
Ellen Brown’s book, The Web of Debt, was first published around the same time as Choosing Honor. I have long admired her work to reveal the truth of the money power in the United States and the world. In an article published today, links below, she nails what the people of the world are up against if we are to gain personal sovereignty. Kudos to Ellen Brown for yet again succinctly revealing the money power at work in the world today. http://www.alternet.org/economy/its-depressing-true-bankers-run-show
It’s Depressing But True: The Bankers Run the Show
This chart graphing real wealth distribution in the United States versus what people perceive and want wealth distribution to be is within the people’s power to change.
We have the power to reverse this reality with two acts in Congress. One, null and void every derivative contract in existence. Derivatives are bets, usury, there are no real financial assets attached. The trillions of dollars wiped off the “game board” would not hurt the real economy. Two, every mortgage currently owned by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac that can not show clear chain of ownership of the note should be vaporized. Holders of the homes, good standing in payments or not, would immediately hold full ownership of the properties. This would indeed be government by the people for the people. Versus what we currently have…government by the banks for the banks.
The idea for wiping derivatives off the economy’s table comes from Paul Craig Roberts, http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2012/06/05/collapse-at-hand/ As he says this call to null and void the $230 trillion in derivatives is a matter of national security.
The idea for wiping out the mortgages comes from a long line or revelations about mortgage fraud and unjust foreclosures. The best source for this information is Ellen H. Brown, http://www.webofdebt.com/articles/foreclosuregate.php She has named the entire debacle “Foreclosuregate.”
A solution for REAL U.S. national security.. world security
Paul Craig Roberts has published a concise and thorough discussion of the world’s economic balance of power. This is a must read if you want to know exactly what is going on with the banksters, nations and wealth.
