Idea and possession

Give me control of a nations money supply, and I care not who makes it’s laws
Amschel Rothchilds

No animal and certainly no human want we steal something from them.
Therefore animal get the sense of possession, and we are not exception.

Controlling money supply is about controlling this part of our brain that want to possess.
It's not unlike your dog obeying you for the rewarding meat.

But the speciality of humans is creativity, that is creating idea, that, by definition, spread.

One can argue that with an empty stomachs, you can't be creative, so you are inevitably controlled by money. And this was true.

The only thing that is different from the days Amschel Rothchilds said that is summarized in one things : Internet.

But first, what controlling money supply means ?
I suspect the author implied a geographical control of money, that is : the one who can move money to the pocket he wants get power.

But Internet changed the odd, now the money does not go into pockets, it goes into ideas.
Internet made ideas more powerfull, and borderless.
Now ideas are controlling money.
Money does not attract ideas.

Give money to a monkey and you get a rich monkey, not an idea.

"where the money goes ?" is not anymore a geographical question.
It is an idealogical one.

Even if it was a geographical concept, mobility improved at a point you can move at whatever location money goes.

This masquerade of crisis, is more a way to brings people back in survival mode, to push them to possess things.
But at the end of the day, we never had in history so much power between our ears.

Our brain can now follow whatever idea you want instantly.

Now, money is in the service of ideas, as long as you stop going into survival mode. (Tip : Buy an hammer and smash your TV)
