USURY, A Scriptural, Ethical and Economic View

25,00 


The word usury was very odious to the Christian mind and conscience. The moral nature of an act does not depend on the enacted statutes of human legislators, and the laws of economics are eternal. We must not permit our views of divine and economic truth to be perverted by this modern division of increase into legal and illegal.


 


In order that the whole truth may be now expressed in our language we must combine with the old word usury the new word interest; then only will we have the full force of the revealed truth. Throughout this discussion usury is used in its full old classical meaning for any increase of a loan, great or small, whether authorized or forbidden by the civil state.

  • The Secrets of the Federal Reserve


    Here are the simple facts of the great betrayal. Wilson and House knew that they were doing something momentous. One cannot fathom men’s motives and this pair probably believed in what they were up to. What they did not believe in was representative government. They believed in government by an uncontrolled oligarchy whose acts would only become apparent after an interval so long that the electorate would be forever incapable of doing anything efficient to remedy depredations. All of these central banks have the power of issuing currency in their respective countries. Thus, the people do not own their own money in Europe, nor do they own it here. It is privately printed for private profit.

  • The Legalized Crime of Banking


    The Legalized Crime of Banking is a simple story of The Federal Reserve System, dealing principally with the unconstitutional creation of money and the control of credit by private corporations. The author suggests a concrete, simple solution, which Congress could employ, which would make the transition from private banking to the Treasury without injuring anyone enjoying a constitutional right, or without upsetting our normal course of trade, industry, and agriculture.

  • Promise to Pay


    In the civilised world there are enough raw materials, machinery, labour and scientific knowledge to satisfy the needs of all the inhabitants. Poverty and hunger exist because people have not enough money to buy all the output of modern civilisation at a fair price to the producers. When there is a shortage of anything the most obvious remedy is to create some more and there is no real difficulty in creating more money. PROMISE TO PAY shows how this should be done when money is backed by goods and services.
