Action FAQ

1. What is the Social Credit movement?

The Social Credit movement is a world-wide movement of individuals which has existed since the early 1920’s. Social Crediters are people who: a) wish to live in much healthier societies, i.e., societies that are politically and economically functional rather than dysfunctional (in view of the true purposes of economic and political association) and who: b) believe that the social analysis and remedial proposals of C.H. Douglas encapsulate the key policies, principles, and mechanisms that must be adopted if this goal is to be successfully achieved. As such, the Social Credit movement is both open to and in need of the co-operation of each and every individual, prior to and independently of any question of race, ethnicity, gender, nationality, political or religious affiliation, etc. By working in a co-operative, law-abiding, and non-violent manner, Social Crediters are confident that economic and political associations can be suitably re-aligned (i.e., in keeping with the correct principles of association) so as to deliver far more satisfactory results to their individual members.

2. What are "Social Credit Action Groups"?

Social Credit Action Groups are self-organizing and self-financing groups which work under the banner of the C.H. Douglas Institute in order to forward, in a concrete way, the aims of the Social Credit movement. They represent an attempt to make use of the correct principles of association so that Social Crediters can effectively associate in the service of common interests. We suggest that each group should be small, i.e., composed of a minimum of three or four persons and a maximum of twelve persons, with a President, Vice-President, Secretary and Treasurer. Groups that register with the Institute will have the name of the group and its leader, together with the Groups contact information, placed on this website so that interested individuals may affiliate with groups in their local areas.

3. What sorts of activities may Social Credit Action Groups undertake?

In seeking to bring society into alignment with Social Credit principles, Social Credit Action Groups may choose to engage in a number of activities that will broadly fall into one of two categories: a) education and b) political action. The purpose of Social Credit education is to raise the general level of awareness regarding the Social Credit analysis and remedial proposals as well as Social Credit themes and concerns among the general public, or else to train individuals who may become Social Credit technicians and expositors. Activities that lend themselves to this end may include, for example, the formation of study and reading circles, the holding of lectures and rallies, and the distribution of Social Credit literature. The purpose of Social Credit political action is to put pressure on the centres of political power so that they will become aware of, take seriously, and eventually implement Social Credit principles into the economic and political life of one’s nation. Activities that can be undertaken in service of this end may include, for example, letter writing campaigns to political representatives, the lobbying of public officials, and electoral campaigns (organizing the population so that they will only vote for candidates who, regardless of political party affiliation, promise to support Social Credit policies). It is important that Social Crediters speak in one coherent voice in order to maximize their effectiveness. Relying on a centralized source for information will ensure the integrity and recognisability of the message. For this reason, the Institute freely provides a number of resources (such as pamphlets and leaflets) which can be used as promotional material.

  • Socialism, Social Credit, and the Monopoly of Credit - Part 5
    Looking back, we can observe that the triumph of the MoC, thanks in no small part to the role played by the Socialists (often unwittingly), has enabled it to turn the three revolutions to its advantage - at the expense of the common man. The Mechanical Revolution, the Electrical Revolution and the French Revolution were meant to liberate man from toil and tyranny: instead, they have led to his further subjugation through wage-slavery, debt-slavery and rising taxation. It is more than a little tragic that the sincere studies, serious struggles and severe sacrifices of countless radicals, revolutionaries and other activists who strove for a better world in the name of Socialism should have led to this outcome - the tightening of the invisible chains that bind mankind.

  • Socialism, Social Credit, and the Monopoly of Credit - Part 4
    The very first Social Credit work of Major Douglas - The Delusion of Super-Production was published in 'The New Age', thanks to A. R. Orage, who, prior to encountering Douglas, had been a guild socialist. Thus, Social Credit may be said to have emerged on the left side of the political spectrum, (though of course the philosophy of Social Credit transcends left and right, and Douglas himself was a conservative, albeit an unorthodox one.)
