All men/women begin life with a simple “Will to economic plenty with freedom”.
There is an unshakeable commonality amongst us; the will to economic plenty [where and if it can be had] with freedom. So what are we fighting about? The tractor, the assembly line, the computer and other revolutionary economic developments have long conspired to dictate a state of plenty? The limitation of industry is no longer, as it had been for thousands of years, how to make it. The question for every industrial enterprise is “Can we sell it?” If we can sell it we can make it. If we can’t sell it, we won’t make another.
Speaking generally, the problem of production has been long solved. It was solved by harvesting existing energy sources, and applying this energy to automatic and semi-automatic machines; a process which increasingly left human labour out of the equation. In this way the economic limitation was moved onwards into the “distribution department”.
Thus far society continues to insist that the primary means of distribution must be employment. The work done may not be needed by anyone, necessarily, but the empayment of the employed is our main means of distributing the money which will cause the distribution of product to take place. Employment which is not required for production, must be retained, the conventional wisdom has it, in some form or other, as a mechanism of distribution.
The “Labour Movement” for more than a hundred years has always insisted that everyone, for most of their lives, must submit themselves to the control and direction of “the bosses”. It is called full employment, and the labour movement takes the approach that he who will not submit to the bosses, neither shall he eat. In an age of scarcity it seemed fair that each contribute according to his ability, and our thinking has not moved forward. Furthermore, the resources needed to keep everyone busy and employed are now compounding those required to provide for actual human needs, by a substantial factor.
As some countries are now experiencing 25% unemployment, and no shortages of goods in the shops have been observed, this has obviously not affected production.
Though if labour is increasingly being displaced from the productive system, what is displacing it? The biggest factor in today’s production is “yesterday”. Yesterday we built farms and factories, created languages, invented the wheel and the computer, and above all, amassed an awesome store of information which enables us to more easily change matter into more useable forms. This is modern man’s inheritance, bequeathed to us for the most part by people who are not now even remembered. This is a social inheritance in which all men participate.
Social Credit addresses these issues. Founded by C. H. Douglas whose works are available on this web site, his diagnosis is NOT disputed at the highest level of Banking Executives. That is to say, a recurring deficiency of purchasing power is acknowledged, and addressed by continuously increasing the money supply as debt.
Douglas’s proposals to cure this deficiency were most decidedly rejected. Those who are able to influence financial policy at the highest level, are not necessarily “bad people”. They would undoubtedly be prepared to do almost anything to ease the economic crisis and the waste of the earth’s resources. Anything at all, except distributing new money creations in a way which diminished their control and power over it, and subsequently their decisive central control over the human organism.
We are in an economy of waste, dislocation, crushing debt, continuous inflation, and the hostile constraint of personal creativity through unnecessary activity, because less than 5% of us have found the end of a lever, [the costless creation of Bank credit] and have chosen to exercise the “will to power”.
Chattel slavery was a respected institution without critics for 8,000 years, yet in a further 2,000 years from then, it is now universally abhorred. An elite which some call the Golden Internationale has dominated national economies and the policy of governments for centuries. The time for change is upon us.

THE SOCIAL CREDITER
The scientific money system for the automation age of abundance
by Robert Klinck
In comparison with most of the major political forces operative in the world today, Social Credit is a phenomenon of recent origin. Indeed, this month marks only the fifty-third anniversary of the publication of the first article on the subject by its founder and authoritative exponent, the late Clifford Hugh Douglas.
“To follow reason, however arduous be the way; to accept such truth as may be revealed to us, however unpalatable; to refuse to put a rose-pink veil between ourselves and reality; to see life as it really is, without flinching, and without flinching to see oneself as one really is; this is the life for men, this is to be of the aristocracy of earth, let who will wear the crown or the mitre. As for the poor creatures who shrink from the cold blast of reality – those who must needs look at the world through drug dimmed eyes, those for whom thought is too strenuous, and the truth too dangerous – leave them to their picture shows and their crooners and their comforting sermons and their games – sympathize with them if you will, pity them as much as you like, but – come out from among them! If I were on my deathbed that would be my last word to young Australia”.
