It is time for Zerohedge to move beyond the financial blogoshere. It is time to enact Project Mayhem. 

Our homework this week is to re-educate the masses by submitting a brief explanation of the effects of Fractional Reserve Banking to the comments section of 2 popular non-financial blogs, any blogs so long as they are non-financial & mainstream popular.

Example to cut and paste if required:


It's time to end Debt-Money! 

Through a process known as Fractional Reserve Banking, private banks get the right to create our money out of nothing in the form of debt. This debt-money they lend out to the public as loans and the cost of which is born through-out our society.


When banks create this money they loan it out at interest, meaning that while they created it out of nothing we trade our labour and time for other peoples 'loan-tickets' to repay them. And as it is loaned at interest, it requires more debt money to be created to make the additional interest portion. As such we are locked into an ever increasing debt trap, beholden to the banks for the very money we use while the banks profit from the fruits of our labour in the repayment of interest on make-believe money. For everyone who saves a dollar, another person must be a dollar further in debt.

More information is available through:

Money as debt:

If all bank loans were paid...there would not be a dollar of coin or currency in circulation. Someone has to borrow every dollar we have in circulation. We are absolutely without a permanent money system.

Robert A. Hemphill Atlanta Federal Reserve Bank

 Banks lend by creating credit. They create the means of payment out of nothing

!! Lets get it moving!! Simple steps that can reach a LOT of people! Of course zerohedge could not endorse defacing currency but what people do in their own homes who is to say?

Tyler is already doing all the heavy lifting for us - we just need to help him out a little!

I like where you're mind is at. I too have been getting the feeling lately that we're just about ready to move it out of the basement. I don't think we'll be the ones to fire the first shot, but we'll know what to do when we hear it. The more creative and prolific the action, the better.

Its started - I just spent half an hour making a new email and commenting on Perez Hiltons blog (the pain of looking at that site!) and another sports site I used to be a member of.


2 comments each - lets go people!!

Unfortunately, the people who view those sites are too brain dead to even care. The truth needs to be spread on Facebook et al.


With that said, I'm doing my part!

It really does not matter because soon enough possession will go from being 9/10 ths of the law to the law itself.  Got, gold, silver, or arable land?

The problem is that without broad scale education the systems that will replace the ones we have will likely be exactly the same.

It's a reasonable start and I support any effort to spread the Word.

I prefer to reach people directly, through daily interaction.  I talk to at least one person daily.  I've been doing this for a long time.  In the early days, it was an uphill climb.  Usually I received in return a blank stare or uncomfortable small talk.

Nowadays, folks are more receptive to the message.  More people are becoming aware.  They know something is wrong, they just can't quite place their finger on it.  They don't know where to look or where to turn to for guidance or information, so they keep to themselves.  When you engage them in a conversation about the current state of affairs, they appreciate it greatly.  Finally, someone who is confirming that they're not insane!

So talk to people.  Talk to people in line at the store or the gas station.  Talk to people at work.  Talk to your spouse and kids!


Nothing is to be gained by remaining silent.  Look what remaining silent got us.  You must talk.

I am Chumbawamba.

Of all the people I have talked to, only ONE has acted (to buy gold & silver), although I did egg on a friend to buy more.

My Tai Chi instructor did, however, ask me about gold a week or so ago, so I guess I can somewhat collaborate your assertion that people are becoming more receptive to knowing that the system is rotten.

Dear Mr. Bearing - I see it as a slow progression, most people will dismiss it first time they read it but if we can spread the word online soon enoght the second or third time they read this stuff they will start to open their minds up. Lets just flood the internet with the truth about our economic reality and leave the MSM in the dust! 


Your comments will form a basis that new information will build on, eventually the minds will open

They created the money out of nothing and charge interest for the loan.

Say, at 10% interest they lend you 100 dollars and will get 110 dollars back, where's the $10. gonna come from?

So, in fact all bank loans can never be fully paid because you can't print the interest on the loan.

And we will always be trading our labour for 'debt-tickets' to pay them back. Until the system is changed there is no freedom!

I am in full support of what you  suggest  , there is also another way you can get to kill the beast and in doing so save yourself a lot of money (eg no property taxes ) The process goes like this find out about filing your UCC-1 , once you have done this you will be a REAL sovereign citizen , this means you are no longer a servant/slave to the USA corporation, for the first time in your life you will be a true American citizen and not a 14th Amendment citizen. Now that you are a real life citizen of America you now have the right to take back your property from the Government, at the moment you will have some sort of "Deed" which in the colour of law makes you think you own your property, if you think you own your property try not paying property taxes and see what happens ,Back to the point , now get in touch with the BLM they own your land at the moment and get them to send you a certified copy of the original land patent for where you live ,once you get that file a"declaration of assignees update of Patent" Then congrats you now have land patent to your land which means that you have highest title to it and NO ONE can ever take it away from you , and that land is no longer held as collateral for the bankers by the government which means you challenge the payment of property taxes as unconstitutional ( don't forget you are a real citizen now so you have full protection under the constitution  )  That is it, if you want to Know the full details on how to do this download " the errant sovereigns handbook " by Augustus Blackstone. It is a struggle to do it because TPTB do not like it , I had to get the sheriff involved to get the county recorder to accept it as she had been told to automatically reject UCC-1 filings Good luck let us together kill the Corporate government and take back America, if you are not prepared to fight for freedom and liberty then you deserve neither ,slaves have NO rights

This was the second failure in a row for a Taurus XL rocket. NASA's $273 million Orbiting Carbon Observatory was lost during launch Feb. 24, 2009, when it suffered a similar nose cone fairing failure. Orbital Sciences redesigned the system in the wake of that failure, replacing a hot-gas pressurization system with more robust nitrogen system borrowed from the company's Minotaur rockets.

unfortunately, as stupid Bush forgot to think about before invading Sunni-controlled Iraq, the Shia follow instructions from Iran. Bahrain much better now than with crazy Shias running the show. probably/possibly the unrest there is being underpinned by Iran.

If only Hussein were still in power it would be Irag/Iran preoccupied with each other and things would be so much more simple. Stupid George Bush and his handlers.

I couldn't agree with you more.  The good ole USSA really screwed things up with the invasion of Iraq.  We unbalanced the shia/sunni balance and all that is going on now is directly related to it.

I don't know how you came up with WWIII starting two weeks from now but the zionist holyday of purim is March 20 and 21 and they think it's a lucky time for them to start wars.

And with the Day of Rage scheduled for March 11 in Saudi Arabia and with the Shia uprising in Yemen and and oil fires in Libya and US airvraft carriers and Marines nearby and with China, Russia and the Arab League telling the US to back off it will be quite lucrative to stay long oil and short stocks!!!

It's been sad and amusing watching CNBS try to suggest the economy can handle $100 oil. The excuse is that the consumer is stronger now. Then they always hedge that $120 oil is another matter.

Liesman was on today saying that the private sector is "throwing a party" and that the government needs to get dressed up and join in. What a fucktard.
