Thought for the Month:
“…in that striving I have come to recognise a force that is stronger than society, secret and swift, that secures itself behind the charter of exploitation of the common people of the world. It is a privileged and select autocracy, which knows no nation and cherishes no faith, and has stolen for itself from the long evolution of modern civilisation an assumption of power which it now claims as a right.
And where I, and others, would seek to lead the people through to freedom we have encountered this hidden hand entrenched in ramparts that have become almost unassailable. Enthroned in our society is a hierarchy of financial anarchists playing with a world of men and women for sheer personal gain, putting them to work under the whips of hunger, throwing them into idleness to keep them in discipline, massing them for war, dividing them in peace-and from every activity into which it deploys them drawing toll in gold, counted over and over in human tears and blood.
To my people I give the call to throw off this yoke, striking at it through the one chink in its carefully constructed armour; and in the following pages I have endeavoured to point the way by disclosing the methods by which this power works and exposing the immoral sacrifice of whole nations of people, and particularly of this young nation of ours, to the cause of greed..”

WHO SHOULD CREATE AUSTRALIA'S MONEY?
by Jeremy Lee,
The Obama government has just introduced the latest budget, with a deficit of $US 1.7 Trillion. As in Australia, there has been a huge reaction in the United States against the policy of bailing out banks and sending the bill to the taxpayers. President Obama has' had to give the appearance of doing something about this, and so, under the guise of being tough with Wall Street be is putting a limit on bank staff'bonuses. The policy is to be admimstered by Ben Benanke, head of the Federal Reserve System.
This, of course, is a privately owned conglomerate of international Banks, and will do nothing to solve the American debt crisis, which has bankrupted the American people. "Federal'' government debt in the US is now $US 15 TRILLION. Total debt -States, Local Govt private etc. - is far higher.
Here in Australia Commonwealth Government debt, - having been eliminated in 2007 - now totals $AU250 billion, all incurred by the Federal Government's "stimulus" package, which simply borrowed money from the banks, thus further indebting the Australian people.
Australian honsebold debt is now bigger per head of population than that of the United States. Generally, the only economists who are quoted never question the policy of borrowing money to stimulate the economy. The only economist who has accurately described the real situation is Professor Steven Kcen of the University of New South Wales.
In a News Limited article, the following figures were given: "In a new record, Australians now owe more in household debt than the country's entire economy earns in a year. Reserve Bank figures show mortgage, credit card and personal loan debts now stand at $AU 1.2 TRILLION, up 71 percent from just five years ago and equating to $56,000 for every man, woman and child in the country ...."
Throughout the world there is rising anger against the banks, and Governments know that something must be done. The trick is to give the appearance of action without harming the private banking monopoly over money creation. British PM Gordon Brown suggests that we must have a "global system" if the problem is to be solved, in other words he recommends the very world government that some bankers are pursuing.The Government of Sweden suggests that: there should be a tax on banks to cover the next necessary bail-out. It would simply be passed on to customers, along with the debt and interest.
Very few, least of all our politicians, dare suggest that the ppower to create money be taken away from the banka so that they are restricted simply to lending. The power to create a nation's money belongs to the People - as Abraham Lincoln suggested - under a fomula that provides an accurate balance sheet showing the true position of the nation.
Depending on the increase, or otherwise, in productive capacity, money should be created debt-free and distributed direct to all individuals in the form of an annual dividend. Each person, man or woman, should receive their fair share, and on no account should Governments be allowed to borrow direct from the banks or use created money without the people's approval.
Australia has demonstrated, in its history, how money could be
created instead of borrowed.
During the last twelve months - January 2008 to December 2009 - the volume of money in Australia (taking the M figures as an indication) has grown from $98 BILLION to $1177.8 BILLION (Reserve Bank Bulletin figures December 2009). Roughly, tbat's a monthly growth of approximately,,.- $16.6 Billion.
Who does this new money belong to? The banks? Or the People?
One year ago - January 2009 - President Obama was inaugurated as America's 44th President with acclamation. At the same time I made a DVD, "Mending A Mortgaged World", predicting what would happen. More and more nations approaching bankruptcy - Iceland, Greece, Ircland, cakifornia, Britain, the United States, Portugal, Zirnbabwe, etc. The latest World Economic Forum in Davos, Swirtzerland recommended Global control of all nations and economies. More and more people live in abject poverty - except politicians and bankers!
The World is now approaching a point of collapse and.breakdown. Unless there is an active regeneration of ordinary men and womenwe will be destroyed and dispossessed. The only body capable of this regeneration is the body of believers known worldwide as the Church, under Christ Jesus and the guidance of the Holy Spirit. The awakening is just beginning. Is it too, late?
Scnptue tells us the people are destroyed for lack of knowledge and that we need a vision - or we will perish. Get that knowledge, pray for help - and take action!
