We are governed by a false narrative that everything is predicated on wealth

Real LIFE in UK 2019

“Britain is among the top 10 of the wealthiest nations on earth and the big question is, what good is that doing us, the millions of ordinary people living precariously and/or in poverty [10]? The answer is none. Few of us have any access to wealth.”

The accumulation of wealth for its own sake is responsible for poverty because it is unnatural and false. It is anti-life.

Human kind are the only creatures who have this imposed false narrative of being, every other creature and, indeed, most humans, merely want enough and having enough will get on and do other things, like play, raising young, exploring, being creative, home building of whatever. Obsessing on grasping an excess of wealth is not just sick, it’s stupid and makes no sense, whereas the constant worry when beaten down by the violence of poverty is both reasonable and inevitable.

There is a reason why poverty is not some moral, ethical or genetic failure in poor people and is, in fact, violence. Poverty is the inevitable consequence of the polarisation and accumulation of obscene wealth into the hands of a very small number of people who…

One thought on “We are governed by a false narrative that everything is predicated on wealth

  1. This article does get to the heart of the few dictating the living standards of the many.

    We don’t need to sit around waiting to rich benefactors to provide us with jobs and an aspiring lifestyle, we are the sole creators of wealth, all we need is the means to achieve whatever we need.

    That can and should be addressed by a government dedicated to serving the interests of people. What most really do not understand is how money is created. The government issues all the money into circulation through the Bank of England and properly directed can spend into the economy precisely where and when it is needed, we currently live under laissez faire Neo-Liberal capitalism, which enriches the already rich at the expense of the rest of us.We really do not have to live this way, and people need to stop voting for it and stop believing the lying corporate media.

    This is what Josiah Stamp a director of the Bank of England said around the time of the Wall Street Crash: “Banking was conceived in iniquity and was born in sin. The bankers own the earth. Take it away from them, but leave them the power to create money, and with the flick of the pen they will create enough deposits to buy it back again. However, take away from them the power to create money and all the great fortunes like mine will disappear and they ought to disappear, for this would be a happier and better world to live in. But, if you wish to remain the slaves of bankers and pay the cost of your own slavery, let them continue to create money.” Josiah Stamp.

    Governments such as our’s can spend into the economy and regulate it through taxation, not as we are told today by Neo-Liberal politicians of all colours, that government can only spend what it raises in taxation. this in fact a total lie, as other Bankers such as Alan Greenspan confer.

    Neo-Liberalism, fantasy economics
