    They’re only liquidating the future of those who take money seriously. Money is their primary means of controlling us. But…they don’t actually control us. That’s the rub about all this. We control ourselves. Money just makes it seem like we don’t control ourselves.

      With money comes ownership and a false(?) notion of territory, this certainly dictates the amount of control we have over our own freedom. Down in Albion it’s bitter and the clinging rich are selling England by the pound, in Totnes the locals have reinvented currency; http://www.totnespound.org/

    To Shakynavelbones: Yeah. That’s where it all started. The Transition Town Movement is
    growing. There’s only a handful of people doing it where i am, but it’ll
    take some time. Local currencies are a step in the right direction
    insofar as fucking central banks and empowering local communities, but,
    unless we can get out of the zero-sum exchange paradigm, then the money
    changers are gonna hack the social system again in due time. Any
    currency, just like anything written down on paper, like law, is gonna
    be hijacked by middlemen. Those middlemen have quite a long tradition of
    interrupting human sociality with their antics. We’ll be rid of ‘em
    soon enuff.

    And, I don’t really understand your concept of
    ‘freedom’ when you say ‘the amount of control we have over our own
    freedom’. You mean ‘freedom’ as in Constitution/Magna Carta’esque
    freedom? Those are just words on parchment, mate. Freedom is knowing who
    you are. No one ever controls you but you.
