Money originates in the banks computers, is borrowed by govts businesses and people. It does eventually get back to the bank as receipts and savings and as interest and loan repayments.
If you are talking about tax money, the govt has to tax you to at
least pay the bank loans back, as long as you are happy for them to borrow it as debt against your future income/time.
MOney doesnt originate as savings which the banks depend on to lend. Thats a lie. Banks will say that they lend deposits and most people immediately think, oh yeah thats our savings we deposit in our accounts. Thats not it. They lend new money created by computer figures, at multipals against one dollar of your savings or what income you bank in your business account.
As loans are paid off that money you pay in is cancelled. When you get a loan approved they DEPOSIT it in your account, just like you have put in the money as a saving. They lent you your depsit didnt they?
Every day banks are cancelling money and creating new money
and you can guess that if the rate of cancelling is greater than the rate of creating them it will swallow itself up and disappear.
Thus its an inflationary system and inflation destroys saving over time, which means we have to work longer and harder to keep pace, and isnt that exactly what is happening?
WE fight the boss, we fight the govt, the boss fights the govt and the worker and we cant win and the reason is obvious.
"In Santiago Yaitepec the people say that to migrate north is to die a little. When a family member is absent, either dead or far way, the rest of the family still performs healing and rituals for them, using photographs and clothing. In the hills the people strike the clothing of the dead and migrants with a staff, and light candles and ask that wherever they are they do not suffer and repent for their sins."
Very sad story, which represents how the jungle swallows its weakest members. Immigration is never a solution, but a symptom of the cancer. We must remove the tumor...
"Money should flow freely out of the Lions share back to where it came from, the people."
This statement is not mine but I can defend it. The lion's share (for example, Mexico has one of the highest concentration of millionaries) is unsustainable when people are forced to emigrate and children are dying of hunger. It's simply immoral.
As for whether the whole jungle is run by a small clique of bankers/usurers, the other lions being victims of it, it's rather doubtful. Unless you reserve the label of lions for them and apply the term "other predators" to all those who serve them: foxes, hyenas, serpents, vultures, parrots (who repeat what they hear) and even rats. They all have a stake in the jungle: THE SCRAPS. They would do anything to prevent the little animals from ever running their own lives in cooperative forms.
Sure, we can try to win them over, but be aware what's at stake. The upper end of the food chain doesn't allow for solidarity with the lower end of the food chain. It's a matter of "kill or be killed"...:confused:
