“Render therefore unto Caesar the things which be Caesar’s, and unto God the things which be God’s.” This sentence is quite unusual as it is quoted three times in Matthew 22:21, Mark 12:17 and Luke 20:25. I am not religious by any means but this sentence has a great bearing on this post. I am sick and tired of debt ruining everyone’s lives. Debt is Caesar’s legacy to modern man. It causes sickness, suffering, famine, homelessness, suicide, worry, depression,family break up. The list goes on. Practically every country is in debt in one way or another and this debt is filtered down through services, businesses, down to the common man.
Practically everyone is directly or indirectly feeling this pressure. Prices are rising, quality is falling, most items bought nowadays last five minutes. Banks and governments are making money out of thin air with no tangible backing of gold. Thin air is worth more than a dollar bill. Yet we accept it, treasure it, save it, spend it. There is no security nowadays. Businesses are being hijacked by the stocks and shares markets who are casinos, worse than found in places such as Las Vegas.
Banks wrench people out of their homes. Not the fault of the people but the infrastructure collapsing and they call these unpaid debts toxic. The banks, corporations and governments are toxic as they can do what they like, when they like, with whatever they like, surrounding themselves with illegal and unjustifiable protection. The people are finding it harder to live decent and responsible lives. CEOs, Bankers, Politicians are paid criminal amounts in salaries, pensions, golden handshakes. For what? Making the common man’s life a misery !! I could go on. This is a post not a lecture.
There is an easy way out. Scrap debt. Make it politically incorrect to be in debt. Refuse to be in debt. Be horrified at the thought of debt. If you can’t afford it then don’t have it. If enough people did this, debt would die. The Banks’ old regime would die. Governments as we know it would die. A fresher cleaner society would evolve bringing in a new way of running the world of humanity. Instead of charities picking up the pieces, their ideals would run the world as governments should.
I could get in trouble for this post. Good !!
