Take Back Your Money
By Mark Ciotola
There have been grumblings among some Technocrats about the Federal Reserve controlling the US currency. Yet is this entirely true? Although Technocracy is not in the business of promoting money (far from it). Nevertheless, you don’t have to take the Federal Reserve system sitting down.
The Federal Reserve prints all of the US paper currency, and effectively prints much more electronically. Yet they are not the only game in town. I live near San Francisco. The Federal reserve has a grand, modern building in the heart of the Financial District. Yet near my dentist’s office is a large, 1930s-era building that looks like a fortress. It is the U.S. Mint, which is not part of the Federal Reserve, but rather a direct part of the U.S. government (the Treasury Department) . The U.S Mint produces all of the coins. So we really have two parallel currency systems: paper money by the Federal Reserve and coins by the U.S. Mint.
So if you really don’t like the U.S. Federal reserve, pay everything with coins! Coins are your money, not theirs. And, a handful of dollar coins can really add up!
Of course, a much more fundamental solution is the adoption of Technocracy!
