      The post is good and parallels some of my own thoughts but is full of
      misspelled words.

      My studies and personal writings on the money system have led me to
      the following conclusions:

      1) A centralized and hierarchal monetary system is essential to a
      centralized and hierarchal governmental power system. The two are a
      symbiotic pair - neither can exist without the other. Decentralized
      money systems decentralize power structures.

      2) The presumption that (insert your favorite) only ______ can
      provide the proper basis for a money system is itself one of the
      thought stopping conclusions and is itself a very flawed concept.

      3) Money is in its essence a transmitter of neutral information - an
      extension of language by means of symbols and contracts that allow
      humans to exchange real things by proxy. As such, there is NO natural

      4) The only natural question that arises when the average human is
      confronted with an alternative monetary form is: "How do I know this
      money symbol will redeem in products, commodities, or services that I
      need and desire?" Or in other words: "Who is guaranteeing specific
      performance of contract?"

      The following websites are only a partial list of what is available
      and should you care to respond to my direct writing, you might create

      When I get a bit of free time, I am working on a book on Scotch
      Banking from 1800 to 1860. The book was published in London about
      1865 and one copy found its way to Germany where the present owner
      scanned all the pages and burned the images to a CD and then two or
      more copies were made. I have one copy and Thomas Greco has the other
