Stef knocked it out of the park with this video.

Money is You by Stefan Molyneux
"It is not dollars, treasuries, bonds and debt that is being sold by your government.
It is you."

You're welcome Stilltrying.

I just noticed that Stef joined the Zeitgiest Movement on FB, this gives me pause.

Quote :
Resource-based economy

From Wikipedia re: The Zeitgeist Movement
-----------------------------------------------

See also: Natural resource economics

Fresco proposes a concept of a resource-based economy replacing the need for a monetary price system economy as we have now. His claim is that the present economy is "scarcity-oriented"
or "scarcity-based". Fresco argues that the world is rich in natural
resources and energy and that with modern technology, the needs of the
global population can be met.Circular city





He gives this example to help explain the idea:[5]
At the beginning of World
War II the U.S. had a mere 600 or so first-class fighting aircraft. We
rapidly overcame this short supply by turning out more than 90,000
planes a year. The question at the start of World War II was: Do we
have enough funds to produce the required implements of war? The answer
was No, we did not have enough money, nor did we have enough gold; but
we did have more than enough resources. It was the available resources
that enabled the US to achieve the high production and efficiency
required to win the war. Unfortunately this is only considered in times
of war.

Jacque Fresco
Fresco states that for this to work, all of the Earth's resources
must be held as the common heritage of all people and not just a select
few; and the practice of rationing resources through monetary methods
is irrelevant and counter-productive to our survival.


This description sounds a *heck* of a lot like the same ol' same ol' "Third Way"-"Communitarian" bull we were hearing from Tony Blair and his ilk, awhile back. And here it is again...
How many ways will they find to dress up their discredited and evil philosophy as a seemingly shiny new Utopia?? I would like to say to these oh-so-Superior Beings, You better wake up, the people ain't that stupid!

Bah, humbug, to these insidious creeps!

I'm not that familiar with Stefan, but ScoutsHonor, how does this description tie-in with Stefan?

See the high-lighted red part (just added) - it's a reply to ramallamamama's comment in the message right above mine.

Welcome back to onlines-ville, btw

I just went and read the whole spiel at thezietgiestmovement.com and was suprised that It didn't raise flags. It all 'sounds' so good. Admittedly I scanned through it quickly. I guess I have preconcieved ideas about the 'moovement' from the broughaha that happened at the prisonplanet forum over the Jones interview with the creator of the movie. Basically Jones' audience was split and due to my listening to his show everyday, I took Jones' side which painted the whole movement as evil.

Since then I question everything associated with Jones.

Maybe I'll start another thread to deconstruct the Zietgiest Movement...

That sounds like it'd be interesting. Please do.

Looking back, I'm afraid I may have scanned that article a bit too quickly...so I'll be very interested in this discussion. That'll teach me to sloooow down...!
