The Day ‘Newling’ Changed The World – Dum Dum Duuuummmmmmmmm!
BRISTOL are the latest forward thinkers on ‘Printing their own currency’ (see link below) – With a little SIMPLIFICATION, One currency could be rolled out worldwide with relative ease
Please bear in mind that if you take away stock markets (which are just game playing with numbers on a large-scale) and also, erase the (IDEA) man-made invention called ‘THE ECONOMY’ – Money is worth the cost of the paper and the ink. TOTAL! The whole world trade system and the linking of currencies – are otherwise known as the 2 methods used to maintain the current (corrupted) way of doing things…FOREVER!
SIMPLIFIED Solution – Design and Print Money at home (The rich make up about 2% of the population). The other 98% are normal people, and most normal people live on or below the bread line. For success, the new money ‘goes live’ when most of the 98% know about it. It needs nationwide (and hopefully worldwide) uptake…making it clear to the rich and powerful, that they are seriously outnumbered (as the rich will resist, but only for so long)
98% of the world population are broke! And 98% have the power to change their lives for the better FOREVER!
‘WAGES in Newling’ – I’m happy to set the bank/building society up, and if employers refuse to pay wages in ‘Newling’, I’ll print you off all the ‘Newling’ you need, until the 2% come round to the idea that they can’t win this one. Then Tesco will be giving you your change in ‘Newlings’ 🙂
THEN – Go into high street shops (to ensure local business thrives, and to give online traders time to change things) and say…
‘I can spend £5 sterling or £100/£200 in ‘Newling”… and if the shops and businesses refuse to take the money to start with, add a drop of patience and peaceful wilful intent, and it won’t be long before they see the sense in it. A few men and women versus – 98% of the population, is a pretty sure bet for us folks, wouldn’t you say??
One person can start and open a building society, and with a bit of ooomphhh, Dave set up his own bank up north (http://www.channel4.com/programmes/bank-of-dave)
MONEY and it’s value is just part of a fake system to allow rich people to get richer. And lets face it, all they need to do is go home and print some ‘Newling’, til they have the same amount they used to have in sterling. EVERYBODY wins :))
Essentially, I think there would still be societal issues as ‘cash hunger breeds capitalist traits’ BUT…as an interim solution to the exploitation and power structures that cause sooooooooo much tragedy and poverty, the CITIZENS of the WORLD have such an easy route to really really changing the way society is organised, in a way and on a level, never seen before!
Some examples of alternative currencies
Alternative currencies have certainly done well abroad. A German currency called the Chiemgauer has been operating in Bavaria since 2003. Last year, 550,000 Chiemgauer were in circulation, with a turnover of 6.2 million. With a 1:1 exchange rate with the Euro, that’s serious business.
In 2006 a rival to the US Dollar was launched in the Berkshire region of Massachusetts, called the BerkShare. Since then, 2.2 million have been issued and 370 local firms are signed up.
Even at their most idealistic, the Bristol Pound organisers don’t expect to rival sterling. But they point out that neither the Germans nor the Americans have online banking or mobile phone payments.
Ciaran Mundy hopes to hit the £6m turnover level soon: “We should reach that next year, and go well beyond it. We’re ambitious for the Bristol Pound.”
