The Social Credit discussion tends to be dominated by the technical economic considerations. In the back and forth about how the direction of the system can be changed to deliver sufficient purchasing power to individuals the philosophical underpinnings of Social Credit, why the system ought to be changed, can be eclipsed.

It is possible that Social Crediters come across as a one track record. The track is called ‘the gap’. I suspect that word is something like a trigger that launches the social crediter into as good an explanation as he is capable of the fault with the financial system; a trigger to which I am not immune. Excuse me.
Douglas claimed the purpose of Social Credit is to ‘release reality’ with respect to human activity, which means releasing people from artificial constraints. I suspect it was a frustration to him that people became increasingly preoccupied with the money question which was a limited policy based on a much more inspiring, subversive philosophy of real liberty and personal responsibility.
