In the early seventies I thought that war was politics and that politics was not for me because it was for men...
Since then I have not only analysed the causes for war and lack of peace but also the dynamics between individuals and organisations and between money and currencies.
Here are the significant influences that formed my thinking. In 1996 Prof. Dr. Margrit Kennedy www.margritkennedy.com gave me five small books by a Japanese author who had written about
That's when I realised that we may have 'political democracy' but it is only meekly representative and certainly not as participatory as it could be (as practised in Porto Alegre in Brazil) and maybe should be, if humanity were to show some evidence of maturity and wisdom rather than a display of hunger for power and greed for money.
What we need and what other thinkers have written about is 'economic democracy'. But that's not possible with Western Economics. However, Islamic banking and financing would make that possible!
Hence I continue to hope for an attainable utopia: that 50% of all financial transactions are carried out in 'community currencies' rather than in 'national currencies'.
Politics = Legalising the Money Creation Process + Sanctioning the Employment of People + Organising the Institutions to Keep Public Confidence
