Fundamental principles and ethics show that the monetary system of the USA and most of the world is mercilously abusive and usurious. Money is mis-defined as a commodity. Commodities are tangible and generally have an intrinsic value. How is money tangible? Since the 1970s, each country's currency has "floated" with respect to other currencies, without being tied to any commodity's value. Before that, US money was loosely tied to silver or gold, but the government seldom honored an exchange of currency for what backed it.
Since money is always used by common folks and businesses as a medium of exchange, to define money as a commodity (like bushels of wheat, gold bars or barrels of oil) is to pretend it has some higher use than being a medium of exchange. Lower and middle classed people may be shamefully damaged if they earn less than their survival needs and often do not have enough money to buy luxury items.
Yes, the present monetary system does allow for an exchange of goods and services between people, but it unduly rewards people who are not limited by conscience, guilt, pity, or common humanity; they can easily unduly benefit from unwitting fellow human beings. The Hitlers, Mussolinis, Stalins, Ghengis Khans and a seemingly endless list of power hungry and greedy people are adequate proof of how humanity can be and has been hijacked by greed, avarice, lust and hunger for power.
The latest episode in this lust for power and greed is the 2020 "covid-19," story, which, many concerned scientists and epidemiologists say is the "weaponization" of a common coronavirus way out of proportion. If the covid-19 story was/is true, there are many ways the nations and governments of the world could have handled the "crisis" that would not have "trashed" the world economy. But, the world leaders chose a method of handling this "crisis" that indelibly left damage to the local and world economies. would not have lost a large percentage of its small businesses and the shadow of millions of new foreclosures would not be looming on the horizon without the covid-19 story, EVEN IF THE STORY WAS TRUE. Any scientist that does not "agree" to participate in this "crisis story" is in danger of being blackballed as thoroughly as Brer Rabbit was in the cartoons. In 2008-9, it was the story of the need for a "bail-out" of the banks, "failure" of Fannie-Mae and key financial parties that brought the economy down. Never mind that the Swine Flu of 2009 which was measurably more devastating than the 2020 coronavirus actualities. There was no Swine Flu shutdown because the economy was already compromised with the "story" financial "crisis," followed by seeming "action" by the government to supposedly bail out the "too big to fail" banks, etc. No need for a Swine Flu shutdown!
