IKTV 403 - LETS and Time Banks: The Future of Local Currencies

See Detail
Michael would have liked to have been talking with people who are working with the local Occupy Tucson movement and with representatives from Sustainable Tucson, but for various reasons, neither group was able to send representatives to be on IKTV.  The national Occupy movement is, amongst other activities, working on a national bank or (hopefully) credit union, which I believe they are calling "Occupy The Global Financial System", which will serve to protect US Citizens from the Wall Street banking excesses and restore value to this new currency system.  Sustainable Tucson is currently operating a local Time Bank, the details of which can be found at their website.  In what is very possibly the least cringe-worthy solo episode he has ever produced, Michael also explores the possibilities we all will face if there is a future, much larger, economic crash, and what our best large scale options will be in that event as a society no longer dependent on scarce to unavailable federally backed currency, whether General Reciprocity might be a better fit for this situation, and what the real plans are which have been put in place by the globalist banksters.  The true solution?  Make The Banksters IRRELEVANT!  However, and seemingly in response to this notion, the good people at have just notified IKTV that the US federal government has just authorized the purchase of 450 million rounds of hollow point ammunition, which due to the Geneva conventions, can only be used within the US.  That is slightly more than one for each of us, and at two rounds per second, it would take roughly seven years to shoot them all, for those of you doing the math.  Very disturbing news indeed.
Also, in unrelated news, I would like to congratulate the new nation of South Sudan for backing down over an ownership dispute with (north) Sudan over the oil fields on their shared and disputed border.  It seems that cooler heads can actually prevail in order to prevent further civil atrocities in those countries.  IKTV does now officially like South Sudan (although perhaps not enough to move there), and encourages all nations of Earth to recognize this new nation.

“For I have sworn upon the altar of god, eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man. But this is all they have to fear from me”
  -- Thomas Jefferson


“"And what does it amount to?" said Satan, with his evil chuckle.  "Nothing at all.  You gain nothing; you always come out where you went in.  For a million years the race has gone on monotonously propagating itself and monotonously reperforming this dull nonsense--to what end?  No wisdom can guess!  Who gets a profit out of it?
"Nobody but a parcel of usurping little monarchs and nobilities who despise you; would feel defiled if you touched them; would shut the door in your face if you proposed to call; whom you slave for, fight for, die for, and are not ashamed of it, but proud; whose existence is a perpetual insult to you and you are afraid to resent it; who are mendicants supported by your alms, yet assume toward you the airs of benefactor toward beggar; who address you in the language of master to slave, and are answered in in the language of slave to master; who are worshiped by you with your mouth, while in your heart -- if you have one -- you despise yourselves for it.
"The first man was hypocrite and a coward, qualities which have not yet failed in his line; it is the foundation upon which all civilizations have been built.  Drink to their perpetuation!  Drink to their augmentation!  Drink to--" Then he saw by our faces how much we were hurt, and he cut his sentence short and stopped chuckling.”

  -- Samuel Langhorne Clemens, from "The Mysterious Stranger"


“I have lived perfectly well within this society; why cannot these oliogarchs and same misanthropes do as such then?  It is not because of any particular behavior for one sociological manner; rather it is solely caused by the lack of means and those resources to the great many which are foisted particularly by those which do not lack the same.  We have all faced the serpect sick and we know what it is, who it is and where it is, moreover, we all know what is better.  The question we need to ask these days is whether we are able to appreciate this and contribute.  Perhaps more pressing is that we must now, please keep track of each others' whereabouts: regardless of the presence of GITMO DELTA-4, we must assume that we all oblige to perform in our best.  While the shame of our collective nod to the perpetuation of subjugation and torture still happens, it needs to stop immediately, so this next becomes the most important.  The place in this world bears no more space for those ideologues of bigotry nor hatred.  The ancient thought that a betterment of one family or race or strain is somehow purity, that is now obviously not only quaint, but incorrect and patently obtuse and averse from reality.  The old lines are no longer to be sanely held.  We shall not now and ought not to ever more be alone.  I do not want to be this, only in, that only I am this; it is necessary this entire world needs to share that this immutable truth must be known, because, we all of everyone, we do collectively hold the highest and so care about our future, even when it is not our own.  If you will pick any one of the 3600 to stop, please pick ALL OF THEM and make EVERYONE THE CAUSE.”
