One of my most popular posts–There once was a river …an allegorical tale of money and credit

One of my most popular posts has been, There once was a river …an allegorical tale of money and credit, in which I’ve tried to show how we have all become slaves to money and those who control money. Using water in this little fable to represent money, I’ve also tried to show that we the people can free ourselves by thinking outside the box to overcome our fixation on the sort of money that has been provided for us and over which we have lost all control.

Every metaphor of course is limited and what I am hoping that readers/listeners will come to understand is that there are alternatives to conventional money that we can use to reduce, and eventually eliminate our dependence upon conventional political money. It is credit that is the foundation of an honest system of exchange and we have the power to give credit to each other in accordance with our own values and objectives, outside of conventional banks and without charging interest.

  1. The only lasting solution to have peace and prosperityFather” Joseph Stalin exploiting the love of country for his dark journey into madness. The History of the World is the History of Psychotics From The Secret World of Psychopaths: Why Psychopaths Have Always Ruled the World and Always Will; Citation: “…Psychopaths aren’t like you and me. They have a goal and they go after that goal at all costs. Ask yourself this question: Would you kill someone to get what you want in life? How about dozens of people or hundreds? How about thousands? Millions? The vast majority of people would answer no to killing even a single person…Psychopaths have always ruled the world and they always will. That’s because they have a very distinct advantage over the rest of us. They’re willing to do anything and pay any price to get it…No matter how many people they kill or have killed or how many lives they destroy, it doesn’t matter because only their goal matters…”.
    From The Secret World of Psychopaths: “…They’re helped into power, usually by an economic disaster or external threat and once they’re there they don’t leave until they’re carried out in a body bag…This scenario plays out again and again in history with near 100% consistency…”.
    From School of Medicine and Public Health; Citation: “…The study showed that psychopaths have reduced connections between the ventromedial prefrontal cortex (vmPFC), the part of the brain responsible for sentiments such as empathy and guilt, and the amygdala, which mediates fear and anxiety…”.
    From Factor Structure of the B-Scan 360: A Measure of Corporate Psychopathy; Citation: “…Babiak and Hare began working several years ago on the development of an instrument for rating psychopathic features in corporate and organisational settings. The result was the 113-item Business – Scan 360…”.
    From How UBC behavioural scientist Robert Hare is keeping psychopaths out of the boardroom; Citation:”…Personality tests that red flag traits such as psychopathy, narcissism and Machiavellianism have grown in popularity since the economic crisis, as more companies attempt to safeguard against toxic employees…By 2012, the B-Scan 360 checklist was down to its current 20-item list, targeting four personality domains: manipulative/unethical (glib, charm and deceit), callous/insensitive (“cold inside” and remorseless), unreliable/unfocused (no loyalty or goals), and intimidating/aggressiveness…”.
    From https://www.goodreads.com/quotes/tag/soviet-gulag Citation: “…While there is real merit in worrying about Corporate Psychopaths, there is much more merit in worrying about political psychopathy. For what is our modern politician but a charming manipulator with a calculating mind? What else can be made of the lack of accountability we find in politicians today, or the glib way in which they deflect questions and criticism? And what holds out the promise of power more than politics?…Yes, indeed, Political Psychopaths have produced more victims than Corporate Psychopaths; and while we may read of corporate greed or embezzlement in the news, we may rest assured that the Soviet Gulag, the Chinese Labor camps, and crimes of the Nazis were not the work of capitalists, but the work of capitalism’s enemies…”.
    From Executive Psychopaths; Citation: “…They’re chameleons. They have a cunning ability to act perfectly normally and indeed to be utterly charming, as they wreak havoc on the lives of the people around them and the companies they inhabit. Many of psychopaths’ defining characteristics—their polish, charm, cool decisiveness, and fondness for the fast lane—are easily, and often, mistaken for leadership qualities…”.
    From Corporate Psychopaths – We All Know Who You Are; Citation: “…They care simply about themselves, their immediate needs, their bank balance and the shiny things they can gain from their “career”. They couldn’t give a hoot about the company’s success or employees well-being. Instead, they receive a perverted pleasure from abusing and hurting their victims…”.
    There is an urgent need to prevent evil people who pretend to be mentaly healthy; to have control over any group of people. Any profession including teachers, physicians, lawyers that gives authority to manage over even the smallest group of children and adults must be mentally tested. The evil – chameleon people who are also called since ancient times enemies – within in a large group created holoucast, all wars, and all human sufferings.
    From Inside the Mind of a Psychopath; Citation: “…Charming as they may seem, psychopaths can also be tone-deaf because they lack access to their own feelings and those of others…”.
    The B-Scan 360 test at first must be required from all political leaders Worldwide; in the future it will prevent governments from entering into wars and committing crimes against humanity.
    The B-Scan 360 test is not perfect yet but now it is very much needed. The early warning that a person might be psychopath is his/her tone-deafness.
    There is an extremely urgent task to perfect the B-Scan 360. When B-Scan 360 is near its perfection; no psychopath will attempt to pursue a career that requires them to be tested; to avoid “embarrassment” and rejection. Similarly, people with tone-deafness will not pursue a career in the singing industry or sing in a group of friends knowing that they will be immediately rejected.
    The B-Scan 360 test must be at first adopted for all Judges and some lawyers; who work at all levels of Government, federal, provincial and municipal. They are creating laws and rules also called “Authorities” that unnoticeably prevent real Justice from being enforced against the Government institutions that abuse individual citizens.
    In the drafting of legislation, regulations, treaties, agreements and other governmental documents and papers lawyers play a major role. In various aspects of this work they are called upon to advise upon legal and constitutional questions which frequently go to the very heart of the governmental role.
    From Loquitur Cabrini University Student Media; Citation: “…Indifference and the silence of people lead to the holocaust. To remain silent and indifferent is the greatest of all sins….”.
    Any civilised country must be governed by mentaly healthy people; this is a must; and peace and prosperity will be for all people in this World forever.

    The only lasting solution to have peace and prosperity The History of the World is the History of Psychotics From The Secret World of Psychopaths: Why Psychopaths Have Always Ruled the World and Always Will; Citation: “…Psychopaths aren’t like you and me.
