Paradigm: Semantic of The Crowd

If I were truly a writer, I would have been smart enough to have written a book about 6 years ago, titled something like: John Maynard Keynes: The Mad Fantasy that Captured the World. But alas, that was a time when other urgencies required my full attention ...

Was it Truth, evil genius, or madness, that convinced the world that "money" could be "whatever society agrees upon" (in simplest terms) ... and as long as everyone supports that notion, functions as a store of value, a means of exchange, and a unit of account?

The problem we find, time and again, is that IF "whatever society agrees upon" is created by man, then man will abuse it. And if such a thing is created by a group, or region, or nation, or economic union ... that body will abuse the privilege of creation and issuance, to the detriment and unfair advantage of "the rest of society".

And in our global society today, that is the situation at hand. And certain members of our global society are beginning to quicken the pace of their withdrawal from this agreement.

So had a much better writer written that book, giving it 2 years to be widely distributed, and another 4 to "sink in", these events of today would have been framed in a much more simple context than the minions of confusion spit forth from the strangling network of electronic propaganda pulpits.

It is a mad fantasy indeed to collectively believe that mere mortals can manage their own global economy through the artificial establishment of wealth, or "money". To think that a self-interested group could handle this responsibility is qualitatively beyond "mad fantasy" - perhaps entering the realm of "evil genius" (I can never quite distinguish between the 2) as defined by the length of time such an imbalance is sustained.

Is it it any wonder then, that we chose debt to represent this artificial wealth? And this is to say nothing of the need to separate the three functions, (UoA, MoE, SoV) in our modern era.

But where our concept of wealth alone is concerned, the singular truth (for redundance' sake) is that nature, in its incalculable perfection, has always generously provided the perfect element to perform this function, one which places the necessary limits upon men, which they have not been able to overcome for 6000 years.

Oh, we have aldulterated this element, in completely predictable fashion, by convincing the world that a nation's debt is an equal proxy for it, but the curtain cloaking this parlor trick is a bit frayed, and slipping, I fear.

The book is not written, but the message is beginning to ring out. And soon, this idea of returning to the natural way of things will wash over the minds of the crowd like an incoming tide. Bells cannot be unrung.

History will prove that our semantic had changed, along with many long held beliefs and definitions, in that paradigm shift when tradition reclaimed its namesake
