The Secret Monetary System
The Secret Monetary System was created many moons ago. Most people do not think about how our secret monetary system was created and why. There is a reason we are using this particular monetary system. Good or bad, it’s here. There are secrets you need to know.
It is fascinating and almost magical how money appeared on our planet. Unlike most developments we enjoy, which can be traced back to a source, civilization or inventor, money appeared in places then was connected all over the world in a remarkably similar way.
The American Indians used Wampum, West Africans traded in decorative metallic objects called Manillas and the Fijians used whales teeth, some of which are still legal tender; Plus other things like; shells, amber, ivory, decorative feathers, cattle including oxen & pigs, a large number of stones including jade and quartz which have all been used for trade across the world, and we get a taste of the variety of accepted currency.
There is something childlike imagining primitive societies, our ancestors, using all their different colors and forms of money. As long as everyone concerned can agree on a value, this is a sensible method for a community to use.
After all, the person who has what you need might not need what you have to trade. The use of money solves that problem instantly. Real value with each exchange, and everyone gains from the convenience.
BUT ALL IS NOT WELL
“History records that the money changers have used every form of abuse, intrigue, deceit, and violent means possible to maintain their control over governments by controlling money and its issuance.” President James Madison
Money, money, money, it’s always just been there, right? Wrong.
JESUS FLIPS (many coins) 33 A.D.
Jesus was so upset by the sight of the money changers in the temple, he waded in and started to tip over the tables and drive them out with a whip, this being the one and only time we ever hear of him using force during his entire ministry.
So what caused the ultimate pacifist to become so aggressive about money?
