The idea of a public bank is very similar to community currency only on a larger scale. I understand North Dakota has one. Not surprising they are trying to stop one from getting started in California. It could be better for any state to do so, but bad for the greedy wall street establishment.
I did see one flaw in the short video. Interest being charged. At the time a loan is created the money just comes out of thin air because of the borrowers guarantee to pay it back. The principle must be paid back, and is possible because it has been created. The problem lies in the fact that interest and taxes are never created so that means there is an automatic short fall from the start. You cannot pay back what was never created, or borrowed. Remember, as the principle is paid back it is dissolved back into thin air so that it does not remain as liquidity in the system. This interest banking formula demands growth. and draws the wealth out of the citizens like a parasite by always demanding new loans take place to feed liquidity. That is the debt trap that ends up growing exponentially through fiat currency expansion. Then inflation is imposed as an other tax further stealing the labor of the citizens. Interest, tax, and inflation are all modern forms of slavery cleverly hidden from the public. They are unnecessary, and only feed the greed of those who actually produce nothing. It is a system of human parasites living well off of the labor of the slaves. We have all been so indoctrinated, and conditioned to accept this system that we don't even question it. Most citizens have no real idea how the banking system really works, and that a large percentage of their labors are being stolen everyday. This is why a money-less resource based society would be preferable. Those who create money, are always are the masters. Another thing to remember that adds to the short fall. Every penny is some ones debt. If you save that penny it cannot be paid back. Now think about that on a grander scale. Another thing to consider. If you loan your saved money to make interest on it you have compounded the shortage from the original debt there by adding to the liquidity short fall. Ever wonder why Quantitative Easing had to take place?
I feel alone. This makes me think twice. Also my aunt is being cancerous when she keeps talking about Christianity, making me think. I have never been Christian. I hope i never will. That's the conflict. Thinking twice and having to think about religion at all.
