I'm so glad that you're joining forces with Ellen Brown! She changed everything I thought I knew about money and banking. I first heard her at a conference on 9-11 and the Deep State, and when she explained how money was created, I thought "That can't be true or everyone would be outraged!" Little did I realize that the more obvious something is, the less able people are to see it.

And of course, she was one of the cornerstones of my book, How to Dismantle an Empire, in how we can change it. I apply her public banking principles to a decentralized model that takes away from the bankers the ability to lend what they don't have. Commonwealth banks issue debt and generate targeted dividends to residents that stimulate local production and services.

Ellen is brilliant, as are you, Cynthia. I'm glad to see great minds find each other.

Same! This is the first time I’ve heard of Ellen!

Oh, I think you would particularly like her, Samantha! Her magnum opus is Web of Debt and it's not so much lengthy as packed with mind-blowing, paradigm-reversing fact after fact. I taught a neighborhood class on it that has the lessons here, to give you a taste: http://universecity.us/wp_econ/. She's the founder of the public banking movement in the US. Her Substack is https://ellenbrown.substack.com/.

Hi Cynthia,

I just found you and Matthew recently. Great work. Thank you both.

No discussion about parched farmland can be complete without Allan Savory. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vpTHi7O66pI

This works, but is anathema to most. We have to mimic and work with nature.

My son and I have shared this with local government because our country is stuck in a cycle of drought and floods which is basically caused by a complete lack of understanding of proper farming practices. They absolutely did not want to know because there are so many vested interests when it comes to water and pipelines, etc. Please take the time to watch the video and forward it to Ellen.

Hi Richard, agreed and will do. I actually mention Allan Savory's work in this piece I did which I recently republished on my substack: https://cynthiachung.substack.com/p/what-determines-a-limit-to-growth
