Who are the real rulers of the world? They are neither heads of state, kings, presidents or prime ministers, but unelected international bankers who, by creating money out of nothing and lending it at interest, become the owners of everything, create poverty and wars, and chain all countries with unpayable debts.
This dictatorship over economic life has been denounced by several Popes since the first social encyclical of Leo XIII. Louis Even explains this encyclical (see page 4) and that of Pope Pius XI, Quadragesimo Anno (see page 7), in which the Holy Father states that “those who control money and credit control our lives, so that no one dare breathe against their will.”
|The real rulers of the world|
The creation of money for society is a sovereign act which should benefit society, but countries have abandoned this power to private banks. Why should governments borrow money at interest from private companies while a national credit office could create money without interest? That’s what made Pope Pius XI write, in the same encyclical mentioned above, that the State “has become a slave, surrendered and delivered to the passions and greed of men.” As in the cartoon of the government serving the banker instead of the people speaks volumes.
Pope Francis also often speaks about the dictatorship of the god-money, which has taken the place of the human being at the center of the economy. In his apostolic exhortation on the Joy of the Gospel, the Holy Father goes as far to say that until this problem is solved, no solution will be found for any other problem.
To mark the 75th anniversary of our Movement, we have made a special 32-page issue that you will find included with this magazine. We’ve already printed more than a million copies of this issue to distribute in Africa and around the world to educate people about the scam of the current financial system.
As it has been mentioned often in our magazine, the strength of the bankers comes from the ignorance of the people (including politicians). The solution is therefore to educate the people, which can be done, among other things, by circulating this special issue, which you can order from us to distribute around you. They are free, but donations are welcome to cover the costs. You can also visit our website and look for this special issue in pdf format.
This special issue contains some Louis Even’s “classics”, such as The Money Myth Exploded (the tale of the island castaways), which allows even beginners to understand. It also provides historical facts that show the long-term unhealthy influence of the international bankers. Mayer Amschel Rothschild (1744-1812), founding father of international finance, once said, “Let me issue and control a nation’s money and I care not who writes its laws.” Facts proved him right.
The creation of money as debt by the international bankers is the means to impose their will on people and control the world. Pope John Paul II wrote in his Encyclical Sollicitudo rei socialis (n 37). “Among the actions and attitudes opposed to the will of God, the good of neighbour and the ‘structures’ created by them, two are very typical: on the one hand, the all-consuming desire for profit, and on the other, the thirst for power, with the intention of imposing one’s will upon others.”
But in the next paragraph, the Pope gave the solution to change this state of affairs: “These attitudes and ‘structures of sin’ are only conquered—presupposing the help of divine grace—by a diametrically opposed attitude: a commitment to the good of one’s neighbour...”
Just as important today is the fight to save the family, which is under attack from various circles, which, for example, want to redefine the very institution of marriage. The family is the first cell of society, the first school where we learn values, the “sanctuary of love and life”. (See page 25.)
Overcoming the selfishness of bankers by the gift of self is what we learn to do in the school of MICHAEL. To devote oneself for love of neighbor is the path that leads to eternal reward ... that no banker will be able to steal. Good apostolate work for social justice!
