A reader (“D.”) posed the following comments and questions:
“I’ve been ‘thinking’ and since I’ve watched the 3-part series of ‘Money as Debt,’ I’m now asking the question: Labor is what really gives “money” its value and I understand that all currencies are fiat or unbacked. Any clue or idea on how to measure the value of different types of labor performed in terms of gold and silver which I understand is the true money and of course what the Illuminati only deal in.”
I don’t know what form of currency the Illuminati prefer, but I do know that 99% of the American people don’t understand anything more about money than how to count it. More, I know that the concept of money is far more complex, mysterious and influential than mere counting might suggest.
For example, I disagree with your premise that “Labor is what really gives ‘money’ its value.”
If labor is all it takes to give money value, then there’s no reason why we can’t use fiat currency as money and no reason to prefer gold. We can measure the value of our “labor” in terms of corn cobs, pebbles, gold or fiat currency.
