George Ure keeps laying it on the line:
"Think about this...Where does interest come from in a sound money system? Say there is $20 in the whole world and you have it all. I am flat-ass broke. I borrow $10 at 20% interest all due in one year.
Spin the clock forward one year. You still have your other $10-spot. I have gotten back that $10 and am ready to pay you. But, since I also have to pay you $2 of interest, just where the hell do you suppose that comes from?
Answer: We 'make it up'. Someone off stage prints it up and throws it in.
Except, of course, the making up is incredibly convoluted in an abracadabra sort of way."
