This video explores the historical critique of Usury,
its prohibition and some alternatives.[youtube]Tks1giXGUgw[/youtube]
Usury – the lending of money at interest has been condemned throughout history by noble people of ALL faiths
(Hindus, Buddhists, Jews, Muslims, Catholics, Greeks).
It makes the poor poorer and gives rise to the most avaricious of lenders.
We are actually being told our wars are for the purpose of enriching these people
– and this is presented to us as an acceptable reason (not in the video).
Instead of money being a medium of exchange,
interest rates elevate money to being an end in itself.
