An Appeal to the Greek People

Over the course of the last few years, the Greek people have had first-hand experience of the fact that the modern financial and economic systems do not work. They may not know, however, why they do not work and what can be done in order to fix them.

The brute productive capacity (both actual and potential) of the modern, industrialized economy is so enormous that there is no good reason for poverty, for servility in its various forms (including the inane policy of full employment), for chronic and ever-increasing public, corporate, and consumer debts (that can never be paid off in the aggregate), for inflation, for economic waste and sabotage, or for increasing taxation and government intervention in the economy. In a word, there is no physical basis for economic struggle of any kind.

The great discrepancy between what a modern economy can do and what it actually does, as well as the correct solution to that particular paradox, have been known – not widely known – but known for many decades.

The Anglo-Scottish engineer, Major Clifford Hugh Douglas (1879-1952) correctly identified the core cause behind modern economic dysfunction and also devised apposite remedial measures. The resultant body of thought became known as Social Credit.

Greece suffers because the conventional financial system is not properly designed to begin with. It is not designed to facilitate, to the greatest possible extent, the delivery of goods and services as, when, and where required, with the least amount of trouble to everyone. Instead, the physical economy is hemmed in, restricted, and distorted by a financial system that does not adequately reflect reality. Hence, the economic struggle is completely artificial. If one were to sum up the problem in a single phrase that phrase would be: “chronic lack of consumer purchasing power.” To make matters worse, recurring financial crises are bound to occur just so long as this underlying gap between prices and incomes is not adequately addressed.

The appropriate solution is for the financial system to be suitably modified so as to restore a real (i.e., self-liquidating) balance to the circular flow. A compensatory flow of 'debt-free' money must be created by a National Credit Office and issued directly (as a National Dividend) or indirectly (as a National Discount on retail prices) to the consumer. Once an endogenous financial homeostasis has been achieved, all the other symptoms of economic dysfunction will dissipate.

I would encourage all Greeks who have the best interests of their country at heart to take the time to familiarize themselves with the Social Credit analysis and remedial proposals.

The essence of Douglas’ message has been explained in the following blog posts:

Social Credit: A Simple (If Somewhat Lengthy) Explanation

It's Time for an Economic Copernican Turn

 

Greece does not need inhuman austerity measures, nor does it require the intervention of the globalist troika (the IMF, the European Commission, and the European Central Bank). What Greece needs is a Social Credit monetary reform.

The Greeks gave the world the idea of ‘democracy’, the appropriation and proper application of the Social Credit ideas of a British engineer would allow them to finally enjoy the reality of both economic and political democracy. Without economic freedom and independence for each individual, a genuine political democracy cannot exist. The successful establishment of a Social Credit commonwealth in Greece would serve as an object-lesson for the whole world and be imitated everywhere.

    Excellent.

    A little correction: what is called "troika" is constituted by I.F.M., European Comission (which represents the executive power in European Union) and the European Central Bank.

    The last month, the President of the European Central Bank, Mario Draghi, announced the establishment for the next months of the famous policy of, so-called, "quantitative easing" (imitating so what had just been made before by the Federal Reserve, the Bank of England and the Central Bank of Japan) in order to "reactivate the economy" and "get out of the crisis".

    As it is well known, this policy consists of the buying by the Central Bank of public and private securities (i.e., by the making of more public and private debts) in exchange of the money created out of nothing by the said Bank.

    More of the same. This is the motto of the international imperalists of money: "The evils of the debts only must be cured... with more debts."

  • Social Credit and a Coronavirus UBI
    The great danger, therefore, with a Coronavirus UBI is that, while it may be introduced sans conditions initially, the state, or rather the powers that control the state, might eventually decide to make all sorts of demands on UBI recipients. They may require vaccination, for example, as a condition of receiving it, or specific community services in exchange for it, or the surrender of privacy and other civil rights. The tying of any such stipulations to a UBI or a National Dividend would be completely at odds with the Douglas Social Credit vision for society and must be vehemently opposed on that basis by freedom-loving people everywhere. A conditional UBI would not lead to greater freedom in the long run, but only to less freedom, perhaps even to much less freedom than we enjoy at present, depending on the nature of the conditions the state imposes and their scope.

  • Thus Spake C.H. Douglas ... Zoroastrianism and Social Credit
    We have been accustomed, in Social Credit circles, to describe Douglas Social Credit as ‘practical Christianity’, and I think that this is indeed correct. Nevertheless, for some time I have noticed various points of contact between Social Credit and the Zoroastrian religion. This, too, shouldn’t come as any surprise or be seen as a contradiction, since the particular vision of the world shared by the prophet Zoroaster exerted a heavy influence, especially during the Babylonian Captivity, on Old Testament Judaism and thereby on Christianity. The Persian Zoroastrian King, Cyrus, is recognized in the Bible as being anointed by God and inspired by Him to liberate the Jews in Babylon. Cyrus, for his part, appears to have recognized the God of Israel and his own God as being one and the same. Furthermore, there is a direct connection between Zoroastrianism and Christianity insofar as Zoroaster had predicted the coming of a…

  • Social Credit and Modern Monetary Theory (MMT)
    Since MMT is receiving more and more press and would appear, in my view at any rate (and more on this shortly), to be the system’s answer to the neo-liberalism of the past 30-40 years, it is crucially important that Social Crediters become aware of what MMT claims and what it proposes and also what the due Social Credit response to MMT should be. In what follows, I will attempt to outline some of the more salient MMT propositions and policy-prescriptions and to indicate both the points of contact and commonality with Social Credit, as well as the key areas of disagreement where the two part ways.
