"It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning." (Henry Ford)

"We must rethink the whole basis of the global economy, to make it the servant, not the master, of the world's people." (David Woodward)

We must prioritise the well-being of people, animals, nature, Earth above making money. We have enough money to achieve this now!! For example, consider:-
  • "The money required to provide adequate food, water, education, health, and housing for everyone in the world has been estimated to be around $20 billion a year. It is a huge sum of money... about as much as the world spends on arms every two weeks." (Unknown)
  • 30% of world military spending (30% of $810 billion) is all that is needed to solve major global problems. (Share International 2007? document citing
  • In 2012, global military spending was $1.75 trillion (The  Guardian, posted 17 April 2013, accessed 5 December 2015). Surely this money could be better spent elsewhere? 
  • In 2017, (1) we learned that Apple has $252 billion untaxed cash offshore; (2) all corporations have $2 trillion untaxed cash offshore (BBC1 News 10pm, 6 November 2017); (3) corporations do not pay their fair share of tax, avoiding $600 billion annually (Britain's Offshore Secrets Exposed, Panorama, 6 November 2017). As Jeremy Corbyn says, this damages society and robs public services. Giant companies control the global economy. We cannot allow this! Put Earth and its inhabitants first!!

I believe one day money will no longer be necessary - see No Money.
In the meantime, we must adopt healthier, more loving money systems - see Money System.

Perhaps all this will not come to pass soon enough and the Cree proverb will be true:
"Only when the last tree has died and the last river been poisoned and the last fish been caught will we realise we cannot eat money."
