The Missing Link of Monetary Reform: How? Response to American Monetary Institute's 2009 National Conference on Monetary Reform, Chicago, September 24–27, 2009
Tuesday, 22 September 2009 10:54
by Zahir Ebrahim

My principal problem with modern monetary reformers is that they typically act like prima-donnas telling the ignorant public what is the best solution for them. Each one thinks they have just descended from the mountain with the tablet. Unless the implementation issues wrestled with in “Monetary Reform: Who will bell the cat?” and “The entrenched notion of Public Debt in America – will take a gestalt shift to overcome!” are addressed head-on, just more pipe-dreaming words from the mighty reformers applying the think-system invented by the “Music Man”. The following Huxley statement sums up my consternation with the present crop of monetary reformers completely:

Well this is the real problem. Nothing is easier than to formulate high ideals, but few things are more difficult than to discover the means for by those ideals might be implemented, and the categorical imperatives which spring from them can be a pain. This is the real problem. I mean one has to dream, but one has to dream in a pragmatic way to consider how... Merely preaching to people doesn't have much effect, people have been preaching for an awefully long time and we are still pretty much where we were.”

The respected Prophet-Reformer of mankind, Moses, too had a great plan for his flock three millennium ago – “thou shall not kill” – but few have found the means to implement the glorious Ten Commandments even millennia later.

Watch below Ron Paul* candidly describe the unmatched legal power of the Federal Reserve and the American Elite way back in 1988 which makes even the mighty United States Congress powerless before them. This was reaffirmed 20 years later in the 2008 Bailout Bill!

Given the tortuous reality of the “Monetary Conspiracy for world Government” rapidly progressing towards fruition, how do the monetary reformers plan to counter it?

Do they think that the banksters and the elite will simply roll over and play dead so that a bunch of conscionable rebels can get their reforms passed in a Legislature and Executive which is entirely controlled by the oligarchs?

As was truthfully observed once before: 'Ah – but what if the “criminals” were to write the laws and the statutes themselves? Then, the conniving and conspiring isn't legally defined as a crime, nor the “criminals” called criminals. In fact, most are called bankers (emperors previously), and their instruments today, foundations (fleets previously)! Isn't that just peachy?'

What is the implementation plan, the How, to counter this entrenched legal power that gives the present monetary system its raison d'être – apart from “faith” and “hope” that is, that a “Jesus” will magically be found to throw the moneychangers out of the temple?

A rather straightforward challenge to the monetary reform conference attendees.
