I forgot to write about something else and considering that today I have the possibility to do so, I want to expand upon the posts that I published previously.
Another system that keeps citizens imprisoned is our internal currency, the Credito which is sold as a ‘complementary currency system’ but is in fact a real swindle, it is used to avoid paying taxes to the Italian government, as well as for internal transactions.
All the internal economy is based on the circulation of the Credito: the citizens who work inside the Community are paid only in Crediti, which have no value at all. The ‘internal bank’, to all intents and purposes a proper functioning bank, promises to change Crediti into Euro but this rarely happens in practice, that’s because only a limited amount of Euros are available for citizens and there are not enough to go round.
A citizen who works for an internal company is forced to accept a salary paid in Crediti (regularly in the black, without contributions or with only a minimum number of hours declared) and when he or she asks to change them into Euros the request is almost always denied.
Each person can therefore only relate to inside the Community from an economic point of view: very often salaries are not even paid because the internal companies are heavily in debt to the ‘Federale’ (this is what the internal power base is known as) which lends money but often holds back the financial subsidies that arrive to support the cooperatives or internal companies by using the psychological blackmail of ‘brotherhood’.
It becomes very difficult for everyone, especially if you do not have parents, or external friends who can help you get out of the system. One has to bear in mind that relatives on the outside have probably already been economically stripped to the bone.
How many times, in order to maintain and support the debts of the Community were we encouraged and convinced to go and ask for money from our friends and relatives and move our parents to pity!
And then one discovers that all this was not for the good of the Community but for the good of Swiss bank accounts belonging to a privileged someone and his women friends.
Little by little one entered the mechanism: like all expert traps it was constructed piece by piece and ended up creating an economic prison around the individual.
When one discovers the tricks, and not only economic ones for there are many others, one experiences a huge sense of failure and I can guarantee that it leaves you with a disgustingly bitter taste in your mouth.
It is hard to keep such a disgusting taste in your mouth.
There are those who push it back down into their stomachs because they are afraid to face it, to admit an error that they have perpetuated for decades of their life. Then there are those who decide to face it and in their case the existential and relationship problems begin both with the inside as well as the outside: because the world outside is not ready or able, for lack of working tools, to welcome and support those who leave a cult. Perhaps this is just or maybe unjust; it’s not my place to decide.
The inner pain is enormous when you understand that you have made a mistake and even worse when you have to accept that you persevered with the deceit for so many years: it hurts and it burns: not everyone is able to liberate themselves from such weight.
Therefore we have different types of prison that create fear in the individual and these are just a few:
1) The economic prison: described above; especially Damanhur Crea which is a bottomless pit of debt that brings companies to their knees and not something to be proud of that encourages enterprise and wealth.
2) The social prison: “I have always been here; I do not have anyone outside”. One experiences a great sense of impotence and incapacity to act.
3) The spiritual prison: this is the most terrifying. It is verifiable in the teachings of Wednesdays and Thursdays transmitted via Internet. You only have to be objective and you will realize how much nonsense is inserted into the heads of people; nonsense that is never challenged by anyone, that is not by any of those listening, not even the most integrated have the possibility of questioning it, everyone has to take it on faith, especially the Selfica and the time satellites.
4) The prison of fear: what will happen to my soul if I leave, how will I support myself, how can I betray all the oaths I have sworn, I will live a life of loneliness.
The great art lies in constructing a beautiful image to surround oneself with: “We are clever because we do this and that, lots of good works” without realizing that this is only the outer surface, specially created to hide all the rest and fuel an immensely powerful economic and privileged reality for just a few people; taking advantage of good faith and naivety but above all ignorance; the ignorance of others.
Ambiguity is the art that deceives and here everything is ambiguous, never completely verifiable, never completely transparent and never completely understood.
Now I will really leave you. At least for a while, that’s enough. I hope.
