There’s something wrong with the money system.  It’s fraudulent on its face—“money” is “loaned” into existence, which is a concept so fantastical and illusory that they have to brainwash us our entire lives to get us to accept it.  They have to turn it into a game in which they literally keep score.  You know, a credit score.  And you have to behave, or your score will suffer.  You won’t be “worthy” of credit.

And so that’s got to change ASAP.  Like, yesterday.  But it seems impossible that it will ever change, like we’re just stuck with the fraud.

Or not.

Because for some reason,  when I was flipping through a recent Entertainment Weekly(Game of Thrones cover) and saw the comment from Raven-Symone pictured above, I thought, “Maybe there will be a change sooner than we might have hoped.”  Not sure why that came to me in the form of a Raven-Symone quote, but then again, it really has nothing to do with her.  It’s that a comment about trying to have money and specifically gold play a much more benign and unimportant role in our lives and in society is mentioned in a widely-available, newsstand, low-brow publication like Entertainment Weekly.  Because you know that comment was vetted by Raven-Symone’s publicist/agent/team and by the EW people.  And they didn’t change it.  It wasn’t deemed to be touchy or too political.  That’s progress.

And I guess what also struck me about it was that her comment is part of a rising din of voices saying that we have to change the money system.  The idea is becoming more mainstream every day, and it can’t happen soon enough.  Here is a list of just some of those voices:

The Pope. Nick Hanauer. Princeton University (oligarchy study).  Positive Money UK.  Occupy Wall Street.  COMER v. Bank of Canada.  David Graeber. Michael Hudson. Max Keiser.  Peter Joseph. Michael Tellinger. Russell Brand.  L. Randall Wray.  Alex Schaefer. Alex Jones. Ellen Brown.  Liberty Road Media.

Put any of those names into a search engine along with “money” and you’ll see what I mean. Here are two of the names in the above list discussing this very subject:

Even the monarchy is having to come to terms with what is going on as seen in this Prison Planet article:

Prince Charles ended his tour of the United States in Louisville, Kentucky yesterday where, the Independant reports, that during a speech at the Cathedral of the Assumption Prince Charles took a shot at capitalism by stating that it had “enormous shortcomings”:

Prince Charles spoke of an “economic system that seems to have enormous shortcomings” at one of the final events of his four day royal tour of the United States.

“The future King gave a speech yesterday tackling the environmental and economic issues faces the world at the Cathedral of the Assumption in Louisville, Kentucky.

“…The Prince of Wales told the invited audience: “We are standing at a moment of substantial transition where we face the dual challenges of a world view and an economic system that seem to have enormous shortcomings, together with an environmental crisis – including that of climate change – which threatens to engulf us all.”

What should we replace our money system with?  Self-issued currency, of course.  Don’t scoff, we already self-issue our currency, we’re just forced to pretend that banks lend it to us.

Also, listen to more Hawkwind.  You’ll be glad you did.  Here’s a place to start:

And Marshall Crenshaw.

And a classic tune that literally made my gut unclench a couple days ago:
