"Bankers are in the debt
business, and if governments are allowed to create enough money to keep
themselves and their constituents out of debt, lenders will be out of business.
The central banks charged with maintaining the banking business
therefore insist on a stable currency at all costs, even if it means slashing
services, laying off workers, and soaring debt and interest burdens.
For the financial business to continue to boom,
governments must not be allowed to create
money themselves, either by printing it
outright or by borrowing it into
existence from their own government-owned banks." - Ellen Brown

Most "currency" is now in the form of electronic records,
rather than paper records such as banknotes.
Open market operations are
conducted simply by electronically increasing or decreasing ('crediting' or
'debiting') the amount of currency that a bank has in its reserve account at

newly printed currency is then used by the central bank to purchase on the open
market fungible instruments which
may or may not be backed with tangible financial assets, such as US bonds,
foreign currency, or gold.
When the central bank
sells fungible instruments on the open
market, the amount of currency
the purchasing bank holds decreases, effectively destroying currency.
The US Treasury sells marketable securities -

auctions to raise the cash needed to operate the US
government and to refund maturing securities.

This web site is not a commercial web site and
is presented for educational purposes only.
This website defines a
new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The
author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has
forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has
been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their
agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race.
Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious
practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their philosophical ideology.
This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of
the Way of the Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which
requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church
buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a
personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the
knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has
enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are
spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against
individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate
This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the
intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the
international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The
international corporate cartel already controls the world central banking
system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment
complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of
self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization
is based on cooperation. Cooperation does not occur at the point of a
American social mores and values have declined precipitously over
the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more
power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general
through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been
preprogrammed into the population through prior corporate media psychological
operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the
destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt
international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and
coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been
directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that
further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
