How to address religious people kncking at your door

Posted on June 2, 2019 at 5:23am 3 Comments

When young people are involved  in religious door to door prostylizing (especially when an older man is over seeing a young woman) tend to think they may be foster kids. I want to drop them a note to help them excape the religious, or whatever else kind of 'trafficing' may be going on.   My toung bleeds and I've learned that it's detremental to pass notes.

The guy in the attached video is good.

All money that has taxation, and interest involved is a form of percentage slavery.  No way around it. 

Every major form of theism has a version of the Golden rule.  Some times called the law of reciprocity.  Atheists generally refer to it this way.   It is probably the most common sense ideology humans ever came up with.  Every aspect of our social behavior should be tested against this law, rule, or what ever you want to call it.  If that was done, and enforced it would solve 90% of our problems.   Think of all the human constructs that are in conflict with the Golden Rule.  Monetary system, Economics, Markets, capitalism, literally any thing that causes social stratification, or inequality.   Think of the number of products that would not be sold or traded as they cause health harms to individuals as well all of society.    If we simple took seriously the act of doing no harm to anyone, or any society that we would not want imposed on our selves.   Well you get the idea.  Humanity has had the answer to its' problems for centuries.   If it had only practiced what it preached.

The Co-operative Banking in the UK

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.
