Money is a unit of exchange that doesn’t hold any value of its own.
However, we have been conditioned to think that it is the money itself and not the goods or services that we use money to exchange with that have no value until such time as they are bought or sold.
This way of thinking only serves the rich, powerful and governments that have an unhealthy desire for control.
In the period of change or transition – or the process of correction that lies ahead, the financial system and the way that money and our currencies are valued today will inevitably change.
The process of that change itself is likely to involve and be driven by inflation of a kind that will at least temporarily make money worthless in every practical sense.
It follows that during a period of turmoil such as the one that we face, the joined-up thinking and continuity of the way that money and finance works that we have been used to and taken for granted will break down.
Whilst a transition to a new financial system that works fairly and appropriately, and at the right way that it should for everyone, it must not become an aim that can be in any way compromised.
Like politics and the system of government structures around it, it is because of the role that money plays – as it will continue to do so, even in its correct form, it is absolutely necessary that the monetary system and the way that financial systems work are dictated and governed from the grassroots up.
To do otherwise, puts all of the power and utility that money and its use as a medium of exchange provides into a third parties hands.
