[ “It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society” -J. Krishnamurti ]
Society today is composed of a series of institutions…from political institutions, legal institutions, religious institutions… to institutions of social class, familial values
and occupational specialization. It is obvious the profound influence these traditionalized structures have in shaping our understandings and perspectives…
Yet, of all the social institutions we are born into, directed by and conditioned upon, there seems to be no system as taken for granted and misunderstood…as the monetary system. Taking on nearly religious proportions, the established monetary institution exists as one of the most unquestioned forms of faith there is. How money is created, the policies by which it is governed and how it truly affects society are unregistered interests of the great majority of the population.
In a world where 1% of the population owns 40% of the planet’s wealth…in a world where 34,000 children die every single day from poverty and preventable diseases, and where 50% of the world’s population lives on less than 2 dollars a day… one thing is clear:
Something is very wrong.
