Periodically, something comes our way, that just blows all our pet "ways of understanding reality", those indelibly fixed precepts...OUT O' the F-ing water... AND WE WANT EVERYONE TO WATCH IT!!!
The above video, "Money as Debt," penetrated my usual "inbox"resistance of: oh dear, another probably important and curious thing this friend or that intimate has sent me..which would probably useful and inspiring to watch...but really I can't take the time or gee whiz, better not get distracted.
This one I went for...and even tho it was a forty-seven minute ride, I was alternately riveted, slightly terrified and felt like someone had finally kicked me awake.
"Money as Debt" charts the modern history of money, and how we have become a global economy based on a system driven by debt. The video presents complicated ideas with accessibly simple graphics. I am still digesting it all...watch it, you will have your own experience...
