The collection "Around the Social Credit Doctrine" meets a bigger interest when the political and economic scene in our country darkens more. On the ruins after Communism, occupied by the people of the collapsed system, overlaps an equally destructive wave of Western post-modernism, wild liberalism, and political gangsterism of the people who, with unscrupulous methods, eagerly fight for power and money, but only for themselves, and not for the nation! The State is more and more precipitated down, and the international money power becomes stronger...
One could say that our situation is like a "gigantic development of the parable in the Bible of the rich banqueter and the poor man Lazarus. So widespread is this phenomenon that it brings into question the financial, monetary, production and commercial mechanisms that, resting on various political pressures, support the world economy. These are proving incapable either of remedying the unjust social situations inherited from the past, or of dealing with the urgent challenges and ethical demands of the present." (John Paul II, Encyclical Letter Redemptor Hominis, n. 16.)
One should promote the development of a better world for public life by the introduction of Christian principles, especially in the economic field. Money is not the only, but however the most urgent, problem to be solved, because all the other problems are caused by money. Bankers who have the power to create money, the guardians and managers of financial capital, rule over the credit, and distribute it by their will. They want to bring us to the point where, for half of the year, we will live on credit, and for the other half, work for taxes.
"This power becomes particularly irresistible when exercised by those who, because they hold and control money, are able also to govern credit and determine its allotment, for that reason supplying so to speak, the life-blood to the entire economic body, which they hold the life in their hands, so that no one dare breathe against their will." (Pope Pius XI, Encyclical Letter Quadragesimo Anno, n. 106.)
"The State... has become a slave, a docile instrument at the service of all passions and ambitions of interest." (Quadragesimo Anno, n. 109.)
Money power, or in other words, the power of the International Financiers, lies in the ignorance of the people. The Financiers will lose their power only when the people will find out their fraud. The State will become strong then, when the whole society becomes strong. Political power originates from public strength. Therefore, the implementation of the Christian spirit into politics is the most important and most urgent mission of Polish history.
Economic reform could be implemented, especially by the application of a Social Credit economy which is in accordance with the Social Doctrine of the Catholic Church. Therefore, it seems that the financial propositions of Social Credit are not only worthy of notice by the highest economic and political authorities, but also worthy of support by the broad multitude of the public, to implement those principles in our economic and political lives. They will allow us to understand and elucidate, in the highest degree, the situation in which we presently find ourselves, and they will give solutions in accordance with the Social Doctrine of the Catholic Church.
I express my acknowledgement and thanks to the editorial and publishing board of "Michael", and to the authors and publishing house for the edition of the "Around the Social Credit Doctrine" collection - especially for that! It not only has a scientific value, but a popularizing value as well. And such is the present work of Louis Even, "Global Fraud and the Way Out".
To all publishers, editors, and readers, from the bottom of my heart, I bless you!
Most Rev. Edward M. Frankowski
