The films on this page explain in simple ways, why our current financial system doesn’t work. Why it’s detrimental to almost everything and is neither just nor sustainable.
In the first film, the 13 year old Victoria Grant explains in sharp detail how the world currently works. She also tells us how we, together, can change everything and create a world of abundance.
Because of the international character of many causes and consequences, most of the films are in English. We regret that, as volunteers, we do not have the time or resources to place subtitles in other languages.
In addition we place films with solutions. If you know an interesting film that complements the films below, please send us an URL link. You can send it through the button ‘contact’. Also please contact us if you have the time and are able to help us place subtitles. Thank you.
Our financial monetary system is based on debt. Without the creation of debt there would be no money in circulation. We wouldn’t be able to buy or sell anything. Debt carries interest.
Interest sucks our money out of society which causes shortages. To compensate for these shortages extra money is created out of thin air and circulated as new debt.
These new debts also carry interest. For hundreds of years debt is stacked upon debt and interest upon interest. On balance, 80% of people pay interest. 10% break even and 10% receive interest. The system works to the detriment of many people, our world, its resources and the environment.

The European Council has decided on setting up the European Stability Pact. In order to save EU countries (read: financial institutions) in times of crisis. In Germany this video created a lot of unrest because it shows what the Pact really entails.
The Pact is the new financial dictator in de EU. Whenever, and as often as they want, the Pact can demand billion’s of euro’s of governments in the euro zone. These amounts then have to be paid within 7 days. The Pact has the ability, from now on, to ruin any EU country within 7 days!
In the Netherlands the cabinet Rutte1 and the parliament have signed in the name of its citizens, a blank cheque for the benefit of the Pact. The Pact can destroy us financially.

These days we hear about the richest 1% that have in total more than all other people put together. But how is that possible? The analysis in this film shows how. It confirms the facts from the first film.
In relative terms, 80% of humanity is poor. Rich countries give 130 billion every year to ‘poor’ countries for aid and development. Following that, multi-national corporations remove 2 trillion worth of valuable natural resources from these same countries.
Who is giving aid and development to who? This ‘aid’ is paid for by tax-payers. The 300 richest people in the World own just as much as 3 billion of the poorest. With that fact, a handful of people own almost everything on earth.

The boiling frog syndrome (EU) is a widespread anecdote describing a frog (the people) slowly being boiled alive. The premise is that if a frog is placed in boiling water, it will jump out, but if it is placed in cold water that is slowly heated, it will not perceive the danger and will be cooked to death.
This is how the EU started in 1950 and slowly became a banking union and dictatorship from Brussels. Euromania explains what the facts really are concerning the European Union (EU) and the Euro. And what are the facts?
Mismanagement caused the Euro crisis. All the positive ideas from the EU are leading to lost Generations. The implementation of super-sizing under the banner of Efficiency has made the EU an organization of, for and by large Corporations instead of, for and by the people. The EU and the Euro mostly serves the interests of big money corporations.

The makers of the documentary ‘the hidden secrets of money’ explain why the worldwide monetary system in their view is the biggest scam in the history of mankind. Watch and decide for yourself. (Subtitles available).
The system of creating money from thin air is accurately exposed and well explained. Actually, it’s nothing new. Henry Ford said in 1922; “It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning.” Now, almost one hundred years later, we know how the system works but there has been no revolution.
Or perhaps there has? The initiative B of Joy will bring money and the banking system back to where they belong, subservient to people and their societies. Let US be the revolution that changes the system.
That makes us happy again!
Quotes. "If my sons did not want wars, there would be none". - Gutle Schnapper Rothschild. "He who controls the money supply of a nation controls the nation". - James Garfield. "I am just a banker doing God's work". - Lloyd Blankfein, CEO, Goldman Sachs, 2009.
Examples. Petrodollar protection program. The US re-invaded Iraq, killed Saddam and placed Iraq's oil back on the market for US dollars only. Muammar Gaddafi had instituted a state-owned central bank and a value based trade currency, the Gold Dinar. The US invaded Libya, imposed a private central bank and returned Libya's oil output to dollars only. Now the bankers gun sights are on Iran, who have a government central bank and sell their oil for whatever currency they choose.
Solutions. The path to true peace on Earth lies in: 1. The abolishment of all private central banking everywhere. 2. The return to a people owned cooperative who control the issuance of value-based currencies that allow nations and people to become prosperous. The written version is here.
Robin Hood Tax is a tiny tax on bankers that would raise billions to tackle poverty and climate change, at home and abroad.
Oxfam is supporting the Robin Hood Tax campaign as part of a coalition of over 50 charities.
If governments took a tiny tax of 0.05% from international bankers transactions, it could generate hundreds of billions of pounds every year that could stop cuts in crucial public services at home in UK, and help fight global poverty.
