Making petitions ain’t gonna cut it. The issues require a game of power-politics to counter, for power only respects power, not good intentioned ‘beggars’ making fair and just demands.
First step would have been to make a bipartisan coalition in Congress, seeding it with Congresspersons like Dennis Kucinich and Ron Paul, among others. Surely there is some common platform upon which so many clamoring today to abolish the Fed can be gathered on? If such a platform can’t be created for the Fed, what hope of creating one for the G20 looking at screwing the whole world? Zero!
If one separates monetary policy from economic policy, mechanisms of money from economic policies that use them, identify desirable characteristics of the monetary system where much of the common-ground exists, and avoid pontificating economic policies upon which there is much divisiveness, more effective coalitions can be constructed.
A good benchmark can be – what is the common ground between Dennis Kucinich and Ron Paul? Or perhaps, what are the common fundamentals upon which both monetary reformers [who are opposed to the Federal Reserve System] can potentially come together on? Use that in turn to seed a [consensus] monetary reform statement.
If platitudes were sufficient, the 'Good Books' abound; and surely the Biblical Golden Rule made into the foundation-principle of all nations' foreign and economic policies would create heaven on earth. It is only the game of power which ‘Cain’ understood, and ‘Abel’ didn’t.
Is there no one in the world who can put down a 100 million dollars towards creating the equivalent of a 'Ford Foundation' to fight on the side of monetary reform? That is what it will take to merely seed a real power-game.
