Gratitude in an Imperfect World

Another View of Reality“Each one of us, as long as life stirs in him, may play a part in extricating himself from the power system by asserting his primacy as a person in quiet acts of mental or physical withdrawal–in gestures of non-conformity, in abstentions, restrictions, inhibitions, which will liberate him from the domination of the pentagon of power.”~Lewis Mumford, American historian 1895-1990

I have wanted The Quality Life Plan® book, special reports and blogs to help liberate readers’ minds from the exclusive manner in which they have been led to think about wealth and money; a way that was carefully designed and implemented at a specific moment in world history by those who would profit by it. My goal, while deconstructing a typically complex topic into everyday language, has been to offer an alternative practical approach beyond the overlooked and under-reported negative personal impact of a current financial system that is mathematically rigged.

I am thankful for learning the truth about wealth, money and the financial services industry; my eyes opened back in the early 1980’s. That was when I had the privilege of meeting Buckminister Fuller during the last years of his life. His 1981 book, Critical Path, is where I got my first glimpse at “international bankers” and their far-reaching agenda of global control and domination. Having recognized their role in establishing an imperfect/unfair world, I wondered why.

In a perfect world...a corporate financial-services industry would not be the main educational source for understanding wealth, money, credit and debt.

But, it appears to be.

In a perfect world…more people would feel safe to share the reality of their financial situation so they could see that everyone is in the same boat of personal debt.

But, alas, most do not.

Due to the social taboo of speaking honestly about financial issues, behind closed doors people suffer the effects of mounting debt in silence. Yet if such conversations happened in the course of everyday life it would become obvious to more people how the dependence on credit has become epidemic. Maybe then we would ask, “Why is this happening?” Though some may appear to be doing well, usually the only difference is the scale of their indebtedness and stress.

In a perfect world…those who do ask WHY would do some research. They would dig into historical facts about money and the Federal Reserve Banking System. They would learn that the current system of money works against their best efforts and that education about money and finance offered by the financial industry is vastly incomplete.

But sadly, most never get started.

In a perfect world…informed people would recognize that the monetary system originates from a blueprint design (established centuries ago) that, today, still defines their financial options. As a result, they instead choose to seek, find, and put their trust in independent sources of financial education and strategies, and care not about any perceived damage to their social image a lifestyle change might signal.

Yet these folks appear to be far and few between.

In a perfect world…the “little guy” entrepreneur who makes this information available would be highly sought after by those hungry to do whatever it took to ensure their long-term quality of life.

That said, in the corporate world of huge marketing budgets, the message of the little guy can easily get lost on an un-level playing field of corporate persons.

Since my book was published in 2007, I have received overwhelming verification from financial colleagues for the accuracy of its financial data and consensus from readers for the need of an alternative approach to wealth-building and personal finance. I invite you to consider my book as holiday gift for friends and family. Thanks to each and every one of you for your interest in my topic; one known to be complex and boring.

May your holiday season be filled with blessings!

    Okay, I have a question for your radio audience today: What would it take for you to be able to talk candidly about finances with the people involved? (Ask it as if you really intend to smash that taboo and include money subjects as needed.)

  2. Robert says:

    Susan,
    I think you really nailed the devastating influence that the taboo of money talk has on people whose relationship involves sharing financial responsibility. The shame of being in debt compounds the situation by people living like someone they’re not and pretending everything’s fine.

    Being in debt also depowers people because most of tthem know that no matter how great or small their kingdom, they could not have done it with their own energy and resources. So they sell the substance of their accomplishments in trade for the appearance of success.

    I say, “See this great thing I’ve created!” The banker grins and says, “But you couldn’t have done it without me; and I still own it!”
