Real money has value. A gold coin has value as gold, it's worth is fixed to that value. Synthetic money has no value, it is assigned value by its distribution. The ten dollar bill is constantly changing in value according to how much money is in circulation in the market it is used in at the time it is spent. The value is in a constant flux. In a general method, all the synthetic money on the planet divides up all the wealth of the planet, so if only ten dollars are printed for the whole planet, you could buy nations for pennies, but if the banks print up over a quadrillion dollars, pennies are totally worthless. What the Federal Reserve did, right off the bat, was print trillions of dollars and lock it in chests, I'm talking 80 years ago, there had chests full of million dollar bills, so to begin with, to gain control over the currency, they outright owned it, they own so much more of it than the rest of us put together that they could then take control over every market, deciding how much money to pour into it or withdrawal from it. And they used that control to create and pop bubbles. That's why the free market is controlled... it is freedom in chains. So when some internet troll tells you our Treasury can not take back the currency, just ignore his lies, the Treasury can take it back in one hour, whoever prints the money, owns the money, and for the past 100 years, the FED has printed all the money, the Treasury Mints print only FED money... but on the president's word, any ol' damn moment we get a real president (don't hold your breath) the Treasury can go back to printing its own money on its mints. The Treasury can print US Notes that read one million dollars, oh yes it can, same as the FED did 80 years ago. The reason the trolls scream insanity at that is because the Treasury would take back control of the currency from the FED. The only power the FED has is the authority to print money, if you take it back from them, you take away all their power. If the Treasury created issue to loan out to homeowners at zero interest, every loan in america would change over to Treasury loans. Just like that, the government takes back the land from the banks. And with zero interest, home owners would actually be able to recover ownership of their homes, so ownership would change from the banks to the Treasury to the people. Trolls scream so many Lies about this, as if it is impossible to do. It is easy to do. Base the loans on citizenship, not credit. You don't need credit except to set an interest rate, mortgage loans are backed by the homes. Do it for commercial real estate loans also and suddenly those big banks on Wall Street will become small enough to fail. Good riddance. That's why they scream insults and hatred at me, because they know bankers see through their Lies... and they know their position of power all hinges on their control over the currency. And there has been a grass roots movement in this country to take back our money from the FED, but our presidents refuse to listen to the movement, which was started by the banking sector 85 years ago. It is terribly easy to do, just stop printing money for the FED and start printing our own money.
