"Bankers are in the debt
business, and if governments are allowed to create enough money to keep
themselves and their constituents out of debt, lenders will be out of business.
The central banks charged with maintaining the banking business
therefore insist on a stable currency at all costs, even if it means slashing
services, laying off workers, and soaring debt and interest burdens.
For the financial business to continue to boom,
governments must not be allowed to create
money themselves, either by printing it
outright or by borrowing it into existence
from their own government-owned banks." - Ellen Brown

Most "currency" is now in the form of electronic records,
rather than paper records such as banknotes.
Open market operations are
conducted simply by electronically increasing or decreasing ('crediting' or
'debiting') the amount of currency that a bank has in its reserve account at
the central bank in exchange for
a fungible instrument -
an entry in an electronic spreadsheet !
Currency magically appears when the
balance in a reserve account is increased.
The newly printed
currency is then used by the central bank to purchase on the open market
fungible instruments which may or
may not be backed with tangible financial assets, such as US bonds, foreign
currency, or gold.
the central bank sells fungible
instruments on the open market, the amount of currency the purchasing bank
holds decreases, effectively destroying currency.
The US Treasury sells marketable securities -
T-Bills, Promissary Notes, Bonds, and
Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities (TIPS) to the public through regular
public auctions to raise the cash needed to operate
the US government and to refund maturing securities.

securities are purchased in order to get a secure rate of interest.
At the end of the term of the
marketable security, the
US Treasury repays the principle, plus interest and the
marketable security is
destroyed - ie. the fungible instrument is
deleted from the electronic speadsheet.
For example one of the
twelve Fed banks - Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Cleveland, Richmond,
Atlanta, Chicago, St. Louis, Minneapolis, Kansas City, Dallas, San Francisco -

$1,000,000 of marketable
securities with the US Treasury.

is presented for educational purposes only.
This website defines a
new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The
author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has
forged a populace unable to discern
propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an
international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt
version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any
group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due
to their philosophical ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system
of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie - a
rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of
faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in
which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation
with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality
in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human
spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are
spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against
individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate
This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the
intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the
international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The
international corporate cartel already controls the world central banking
system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment
complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of
self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization
is based on coöperation. Coöperation does not occur at the point of a
American social mores and values have declined precipitously over
the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more
power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general
through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been
preprogrammed into the population through prior corporate media psychological
operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the
destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt
international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and
coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been
directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that
further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
