Bill Still – Jekyll Island: The Truth Behind the Federal Reserve

August 15, 2013

Monetary reform activist Bill Still discusses his latest documentary Jekyll Island: The Truth Behind the Federal Reserve.

What’s the real problem with the world economy? It’s debt. Too much personal debt, too much corporate debt and – most importantly – too much government debt. People have a natural tendency to want to spend now and pay later, and governments are no different. The problem is that government money mostly comes from just two sources; taxation and borrowing. Governments can either raise taxes to cover their reckless spending, or borrow from private banks and continue to kick the financial can down the road. Unfortunately, the vast sums governments owe to these private, for-profit banks continually attracts interest, and this mathematically un-payable debt is now strangling the life out of the economy of every nation on Earth.

But crucially, it’s not just the sheer volume of interest paid to the banks, it’s the control over the political process this debt gives the banks. We can never fix the instability in the world economic system until we forbid government borrowing. Economic instability favours banks and speculators, whereas economic stability favours the people. If banks control the creation of money, there is no way there will ever be a stable economic system. The good news is that it doesn’t have to be this way. Banks don’t need to be in control. Governments don’t need to borrow. Governments don’t need a national debt.

Michael Wood – The Psychology of Conspiracy

July 27, 2013

Are some people more likely than others to believe in conspiracy theories, and if so, why? Real conspiracies are exposed every day, but where does the line between fantasy and reality vanish? In a recent study entitled What About Building 7? – A Social Psychological Study Of Online Discussion Of 9/11 Conspiracy Theories, Dr Michael Wood and Dr Karen Douglas of the University of Kent (UK) explore these questions, and more. Their research suggests that people who argue in favour of conspiracy theories do so differently from those who argue against them, and that there are distinct psychological differences between those who support conspiracy theories and those who support the official story. Belief systems also have a profound effect on the acceptance or rejection of conspiracy theories.

Adam Taggart – Living With Purpose

July 21, 2013

Unfulfilled by your job? Wish that the work you do on a daily basis was more aligned with the person you really are? You are not alone. In fact, a majority of workers would chose a different career path if given the chance. The reasons are varied. Some simply experience a bad fit with the career that fate steered them into. Many others, however, fear that their expertise (or lack of it) will have little relevance in a future shaped by increasing financial crises, energy shortages and environmental collapse.

Samuel Alexander – Entropia: Life Beyond Industrial Civilisation

July 12, 2013

Samuel Alexander discusses his new book Entropia: Life Beyond Industrial Civilisation. When industrial civilisation collapsed in the third decade of the 21st century, a community living on a small island in the South Pacific Ocean found itself permanently isolated from the rest of the world. With no option but to build a self-sufficient economy with very limited energy supplies, this community set about creating a simpler way of life that could flourish into the deep future. Determined above all else to transcend the materialistic values of the Old World, they made a commitment to live materially simple lives, convinced that this was the surest path to genuine freedom, peace, and sustainable prosperity. Seven decades later, in the year 2099, Entropia describes the results of their remarkable living experiment.

Kingsley Dennis – The Struggle For Your Mind

July 5, 2013

Kingsley Dennis discusses his book The Struggle for Your Mind: Conscious Evolution and the Battle to Control How We Think. Within society there exists a silent war. The battlefield is our everyday lives: our education, our work, our leisure, our emotional and spiritual well-being, and our thinking and perceptions. Our very sense of reality is deliberately engineered to work against conscious evolution and preserve social norms. In short, we are all part of a war of consciousness. And the opportunity is at hand for us to win.

Dr. Malcolm Torry – Why We Need A Citizen’s Income

June 27, 2013

Dr. Malcolm Torry discusses his new book Money For Everyone – Why We Need A Citizen’s Income. Due to government cuts, the benefits system in the UK is currently a hot topic. In this timely book, a Citizen’s Income (sometimes called a Basic Income) is defined as an unconditional, non-withdrawable income for every individual as a right of citizenship. Money for Everyone is the first book for over a decade to analyse the social, economic and labour market advantages of a Citizen’s Income. It demonstrates that it would be simple and cheap to administer, would reduce inequality, enhance individual freedom and would be good for the economy, social cohesion, families, and the employment market.
