The Social Credit Angle

     Systems that aim to organise people can be placed into one of two groups; systems that limit peoples' freedoms and those that increase them. The latter philosophy is the foundation of the Social Credit movement conceived by the Anglo-Scottish Engineer Major Clifford Hugh Douglas.

     It was the assertion of Douglas that as far as natural law and technology would allow, systems should free people to choose what they do with their time, and this forms the objective of the Social Credit proposals for the reorganisation of finance and economics.

     It is the objective of the organisation of finance, economics and industry at this time to limit people’s freedoms to an ever-greater degree. This is confirmed by an analysis of the history of debt-finance, taxation, attitudes to employment, war and war spending, internationalism and environmental mutilation. The general trend toward the centralisation of power everywhere is systematically depriving individuals of power and, therefore, meaningful responsibility over their own lives. This trend runs contrary to the Social Credit tenet that systems are made for men and not men for systems.

     Those first reading Douglas and coming to understand Social Credit will be surprised at his conclusions and proposals for rectification. Please persist. It is the belief of large numbers of people that understanding in the fields of economics and finance falls outside their intellectual ability and so is the exclusive domain of the experts, that is, those paid by power.  The forces that control the lives of the people, must be the active interest of the people, if democracy is to be realised. It is the purpose of mainstream sources of information, including  media and education, to obscure the truth about the controlling forces in our lives and so leave people confused and apathetic.

     The interests of power over people are challenged in the Social Credit plan. Government and finance must be bent to the realities of our world for the promotion of freedom and the well-being of people which is inseparable from the responsible care of our natural world.

     Douglas’ proposals for a reorganisation of the monetary system, essentially ‘that the monetary system be made to reflect facts’ formed a major part of the discussion up to the Second World War. Since then they have been actively suppressed or, more significantly, ignored by a public decreasingly able or willing to study the problem for themselves, happy to believe what they are told.

    The Social Credit observations and recommendations for monetary reform derive from a broader philosophy articulated by Douglas and believed and developed by Social Crediters. This philosophy is an elaboration of Christ’s message that the ‘Sabbath was made for man,’ or that systems and rules are the servants rather than the masters of individuals. The maintenance of systems at the expense of individuals’ freedom is so commonplace that few of us even recognise the extent of their impositions and influence in our lives. The legitimacy of these systems requires challenging, the philosophy and resultant policy of Social Credit is that challenge.

     This website contains the invaluable and wonderfully concise writings of C.H. Douglas, a thinker before his time, whose ideas are as relevant today as they were when he first wrote them down. It is part of a global movement for the reestablishment of a sign post we will ignore at our peril.

     It is the hope of every Social Crediter that Douglas’ message would once again enliven in thinking people everywhere the desire for truth and the pursuit of real solutions to our problems.

Jesus said, I come that you may have life more abundantly. This is the basis of Social Credit and the more you read C H Douglas the more this becomes a practical reality. In his later years he spoke more about the Philosophy of Social Credit. Joseph Stalin was scared stiff of it. He said, "I care not what Douglas says about money we control it. It is his philosophy that scares me." Read his later books and speeches and Douglas becomes very strong with his Philosophy and tells his followers to forget about political parties. Get the people to go to their own parties with his message and force them to be put into action. A simple statement that could not be destroyed by Social Crediters was "Funny Money." Why have Social Crediters let people get away with this statement. "You obviously have a reason for saying that to me sir/madam. In order for me to understand you properly would you like to tell me what that reason is please?" Just wait for the answer. Wait, wait, wait. This person hasn't a clue on how to answer it because they know nothing about Social Credit at all.
They are sitting there wondering where their money has disappeared and heard some politician usually say it and because they have voted for this politician with their dead philosophy controlling them they can't see past what this person has to say. When they answer you then and only then can you show him the possibilities that abound in a Social Credit Philosophy and money becomes a possibility and not a burden on society. "I came that you may live life more abundantly." Not we must have more jobs, we have to work harder, we don't have enough houses, tax has to go up to pay for them, rates are going up and up, we have to balance the books, get a job. Hell man we have been working our guts out all our lives yet the same problems still exist. It is an endless route to disaster. If we paid off all the loans there would be NO!! money in existence. Simply there is no money it is all just a blip on a computer screen. There is nothing wrong with the book-keeping it is telling the truth. The money system does not work. John Maynard Keys has failed us, Rudolph Steiner failed also although his Green ideas have some merit, the Federal Reserve has failed Americans, The Bank of England has failed the English, The Vatican Bank has failed the Catholics badly ask the Black Pope.
The Moslems have it partly correct by not charging interest. People just do not know what is wrong so C H DOUGLAS has explained it all. The system first and then how to get around it and warned the
ones who thought they could do it better. Beware of the people who challenge him or try to change
him.
