    Suicide is not a solution. People masses in the UK should rise against their rotten and corrupt financial and political elite. The exploitative capitalism police state UK needs a revolution. The UK will never change before people masses rise against the rotten system. The UK is a horror case of exploitative capitalism in Europe and a travesty of democracy. People masses in the UK are brainwashed by the UK`s Zionist Jew media´s Neoliberalist economic policy propaganda/idiotic TV soap operas.

    The root deception …
    The root deception lies in the false creation of wealth. With banks, it’s tied to Fed that receives worthless paper fiat from the treasury in exchange for nothing. The gold standard held banks accountable and gave meaning to the dollar. That standard was eliminated in 1972 by Nixon. Banks have power to purchase anything with worthless paper and demand people to labor in return, according to the loan contract. Fiat artificially multiplies wealth AND divides it just as quickly. Integrity is lost.

    Anyone remember ‘the invisible hand theory’?-the motivating force in human nature to do what is good, profitable or beneficial to the continuance of one’s life. Overbearing government and regulation of every aspect of human behavior has crushed hope and suffocated the basic need people have to express their efforts in ways beneficial to their survival. Responsibility for all things are relegated to others, to government. Atrophy of human spirit has set in. Let the pendulum swing.

    4) well. If we are going to survive as a species, then we all need to start making sacrifices. I wouldn’t hesitate one bit spending some of our military funds to help the little guy. That’s the main reason I pay taxes. I pay taxes to ensure that everyone here at home is well taken care of.

    3) risk taking business men. Most people don’t borrow money to blow it on some bogus business venture. They borrow money out of necessity. Most people borrow money for things like a safe home, a dependable car, medical and utility bills, etc. You have to stop seeing the world in clear cut shades of black and white. You have to start noticing the subtle grays in between as

    2) together when it’s obvious that the person can’t repay it. Things don’t work out in reality the same way they do in movies. Life is random.
    A person may have a job today that can repay a loan, but that may not be the case tomorrow. I know you’re probably saying to yourself “then why can’t people just refrain from from taking loans”. the answer; most people aren’t

    1) Banks were made to work the same way a honest business man works in a poor community. They’re supposed to lend money(goods in the case of a honest businessman) without certainty that it will be paid back. a honest business man is usually forced to take in less than he gave to certain individuals. Sometimes, he/she is even forced to forgive someones loan all

    What risk does a bank take when ‘lending’ you money? None, because they cannot lend you their own money – what they do is to act as agents who merely process a demand by you to access your own credit. This credit is the trust account that the government set up in your name when your parents ‘registered’ you at birth and received a ‘birth certificate’, a document which gives govt ‘authority’ to borrow funds against the promise of your future labour product. That money is owed back to the people.
