A Journey To Financial Freedom And Health: “The Web Of Debt”

Web_Of_Debt_CoverI think most of us would agree that the level of personal freedom and self-determination we realize in our lives is dependent on the degree to which we understand the world we live in. 

If we want to control our physical environment we need to understand the laws of physics.  For example, imagine how different our lives would be if we did not understand how to start fire .  We would have to wait for a lightening strike or other natural occurrence of fire, then carefully hoard and protect the precious “commodity”, fire.  In many parts of the world, our very survival would depend on hoarding this precious “commodity” that we now take for granted because we understand the science of creating fire.

In order to have control over and any degree of empowerment when it comes to health, again we need true understanding and knowledge.

The same holds true in the area of finance.  I have been a student of finance and currency systems for more than 2 decades.  Until recently I thought I understood how these systems worked. 

I recently read a very special book and was shocked to find out that most of what I thought I knew about our currency and financial systems was simply not true! 

This was shocking!  For me, it was like learning that the basic laws of physics that I have lived by all my life were, in fact, carefully crafted deceptions that had been pounded into my head since early childhood.

Here’s just one example of the major myths that this book blew away for me:  I thought that our Federal Government issued our currency.  I’m guessing that you most likely think so, too. 

That seems all well and good, except for one minor problem:   It simply is not true! 

In fact, our currency, except for the small amount represented by coins, is issued by private banks, who then loan it to the Federal Government at significant interest.

The banks create money by means of a simple bookkeeping entry.  They do this every time they loan money.  I’ll bet that if you are still reading this, you are scratching your head and saying, “Huh!”.

Here is the key:  “The Web Of Debt” by the very brilliant Ellen Hodgson Brown, J.D. explains how all this works.  What’s more, it is so filled with information that is revolutionary, in the truest sense of that word, and is so well written that I about sprained my wrists turning the pages as I read it.

This is the book that really spills the beans – it is everything the secretive powers on Wall Street and in the other financial centers of our world do not want us to know.  

As I said, it is revolutionary.

Recall Henry Ford’s statement that if Americans really knew what bankers did there would be a revolution before morning.

I cannot recommend this book highly enough.  I think it is a must read for anyone who truly wants to know how our financial system works, who runs it, what their real agenda is, and perhaps most importantly, what we can do to regain our financial freedom.

Knowledge is power.  At present, most of us, even those relatively prosperous, are still at the mercy of the system.  This is because we do not really know how it works.  If ever we attain that knowledge, we have the potential to break free to true freedom and financial health.

I consider this one of the most important and life-changing books I have ever read.  What’s more, it is actually fun to read.  Despite dealing with potentially “dark” material, because Ms. Brown, includes practical solutions that could make the system far more nurturing of all that is good in humanity, and far more just, I actually found this book to be uplifting.

I give this book my highest recommendation.  Web of Debt: The Shocking Truth About Our Money System and How We Can Break Free

To your health!

    I found your gold and silver purchasing information to be very well grounded, and am also interested in the book you mentioned, The Web Of Debt” by the very brilliant Ellen Hodgson Brown, J.D.,. but I wonder if you know whether this book has been updated by the author since its first writing. So many things have shifted and changed since 2007 that I fear some of the information may well be outdated.

    Thanks for all of your sharing, Jeff!

      Thanks for your kind words about my Gold and Silver article. Thanks for raising a great question. To be sure, a lot has changed in our finanancial world since “The Web Of Debt” was written and published in 2007. However, it is well to keep in mind that our financial system has several important layers. And what most of us are focused on and what almost all the media is paying attention to is the surface layer, and at best a layer or two down from that. Many people know that there was widespread fraud at both ends of the mortage industry – on the consumer side and on the side that sold the mortgages to investors, (known as the “Mortage Secondary Market”. They know that stocks were manipulated and that clever strategies were implemented to foil what attempts at regulation were made. That’s all well and good, and people should be informed about these issues and particularly the crimes involved.

      However, there is a much, much deeper layer to all this. The fundamental problem is the real structure of our entire currency system. This goes back for at least a few centuries in this part of the world, and quite a bit farther than that in the “Old World”. Unless we become informed about what is really going on, way below the surface, and unless we come to understand real changes to the fundamental system, there is no hope of fixing it. Instead we can look forward to periodic cycles of depression and widespread suffering by the many.

      Perhaps the very brilliant and articulate Ellen Hodgson Brown, JD, will write an update. But even if she does not, the existing version contains the real key information, explained in a way that anyone who really wants to can undedrstand, and that is nearly impossible to find anywhere else. I have highly recommended this book to many people. No one has ever come back and complained that it had not been worth their money to obtain and worth their time to read. On the contrary…

      Hope my comments are helpful. If you do get the book and read it, please come back here and post a comment. Also I want to let you know that I have access to much more uncommon information in this area. If enough of us learn what is really being done to us by the financial powers of the world we may be able to de-fang them. It’s an optimistic dream, but one I refuse to let go of. This is an area where I truly preapring for the worst while hoping for the best.

      To your health!

    I am a huge fan of Ellen Hodgson Brown. She is brilliant, inspired and courageous. I have read a number of her books and gotten lots of rare information and great value from them all. (Did I mention that I read a lot?) I have especially recommended “The Web Of Debt” to many people. If I could make it part of the U.S. High School curriculum I would.

    A number of people have asked if this great book is available in audio form. And I am pleased to say that it is. Here is a link: http://www.webofdebt.com/order.php

    Note that this item used to be availabe from LuLu, but no longer is. So it is great that is can be ordered directly from the http://www.webofdebt.com web site.

    Down with the rotten-ass power structure! Up with equality, justice and the rights of common people everywhere! Long live the Occupy Wall Street movement! This is America’s version of The Arab Srping, and it may be our last chance to get it right and take back our power. Remember that powerful as they are, we outnumber them by many millions to one.

    Many people, especially those who travel and commute to work, have asked about an audio version of this book. There was a version available from LuLu. But that is no longer available. However, it is now available directly from the author’s web site: http://www.webofdebt.com/order.php

    On that page you can order The Web Of Debt in print, in both English and Spanish, as well as an audio edition in MP3 format. It also is available as an eBook and in a Kindle edition.

    A fascinating discussion is definitely worth comment.
    I believe that you need to publish more about this topic, it may not be a taboo matter but typically people don’t
    discuss such subjects. To the next! Best wishes!!
