What is the C.H. Douglas Institute?

HummingbirdThe C.H. Douglas Institute is a registered not-for-profit organization that is committed to furthering Social Credit education and facilitating Social Credit advocacy. ‘Social Credit’ being the name which is typically given to that coherent and cogent body of thought on social matters that was first developed in the early decades of the twentieth century by the brilliant Anglo-Scottish engineer, Major Clifford Hugh Douglas. On the one hand, the institute seeks to introduce the wider public to Douglas’ economic, political, and cultural ideas, while deepening the understanding of those who have already had some exposure to Social Credit. On the other hand, we wish to bolster the efforts of all those who have grasped the tremendous value and relevance of the Social Credit analysis and remedial proposals and who therefore wish to work for the establishment of a Social Credit commonwealth. This institute proposes to provide the necessary assistance by serving as a co-ordinating and resource centre for the wider Social Credit movement. Although based in the province of Ontario, Canada, we are keenly interested in assisting all suitably motivated individuals and groups, wherever they may be, in their endeavour to bring their respective societies into greater alignment with Social Credit principles.

  • Et in Arcadia Ego – Douglas Social Credit and the Aristocratic Way of Life
    The notion and institution of the aristocracy is often portrayed today as a class of ostentatious, exploitative, and oppressive overlords. This is the modern sung narrative spun by the established media and socio-political order. While it may correspond as a description to some individual aristocrats and monarchs throughout history, it also applies to most modern elected politicians, businessmen, bankers and other financial heavy weights of the bourgeois class that govern the world today and keep the population truly in chains with a monopoly over the creation and control of credit or money and enforce upon them a state of servility and artificial scarcity. Major Clifford Hugh Douglas made this exact point in his publication The Big Idea: “I can imagine many readers, at this point, feeling the inclination to comment in accordance with the orthodox conception of a downtrodden peasantry rising spontaneously to rid themselves of a vicious tyranny.

  • Free Market Follies
    Lately I have been reflecting on the views of the conventional economic ‘right-wing’, as represented by ‘neo-liberals’, adherents of the Austrian school of economics, ‘capitalists’, economic libertarians, and so forth. It seems that whenever someone suggests that radical changes need to be made to the reigning financial or economic model – a suggestion which, in essence, must be a plea for some kind of intervention on the part of the public authority – those who are more or less satisfied with the existing system and find themselves on the ‘right’ of the economic spectrum regard the suggestion quite reflexively as an intolerable attack on the free market and an affirmation of ‘socialism.’ I have found this attitude, and the rhetoric which often accompanies it, curious for four major reasons, reasons which I will want to outline in this article. The fourth critique that I will present is the most significant…

  • The Hydroelectric Dam and The Bottling Plant as Metaphors for Social Credit
    In this paper, two metaphors, that of a hydroelectric dam and of a water bottling plant, will be used to illustrate the Social Credit diagnosis of the ills that afflict the existing financial/economic order, the conventional methods that are employed to palliate its various symptoms, and, finally, Social Credit’s remedial proposals.
