[quote:Anonymous Coward 590644:MV85ODA3ODlfMzQ5NTE2MjJfOEYzMkRBRTg=] The material quoted below was posted to the Canada issues silver coinage thread. (Just click on the link) Frederick Raphael Burch wrote the book where this appeared - published in 1922. It is available as an image file that can be read online here: http://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=uc2.ark:/13960/t1td9z70s;seq=9;view=1up and also here: http://www.archive.org/stream/truefunctionofmo00burc#page/n11/mode/2up This is the preface to the book. The whole thing is 129 pages. [quote:Malden:MV8xNDU1NTU5XzI3NDkwNTQwXzYxODVGQkYz] [b]The Perversion of Money[/b] THE ERRONEOUS conception of the proper status and true function of money has led to its perversion, the evil result of which is so clearly evidenced by our present banking system. In this volume I undertake to prove the following propositions: 1st. [b]Money is not a commodity[/b]. This being true: 2nd. Money is no part of wealth. Hence: 3rd. Money can never become capital. Not being capital: 4th. Money has no earning power. And it follows: 5th. Interest, or profit, on money is unearned. 6th. [b]Gold and silver, in common with lead and zinc, are commodities.[/b] 7th. [b]Money is something entirely different.[/b] [u]It has no more natural connection with gold and silver than it has with lead and zinc.[/u] We must not confuse money with the commodity which may be chosen as its tangible vehicle. 8th. [b]Money is the medium of exchange and the measure of value ; a convenient and exact method of book-keeping[/b]; and only as such does it properly function. 9th. [b]Money is brought into existence by law.[/b] 10th. [b]A commodity cannot be created by law.[/b] All that a law can do is to function as a law. 11th. No individual, nor body of individuals, should be permitted to own or control a function of law and charge others a tax for its use. 12th. The government is the true depositary of the law and the proper executive of its functions. 13th. These powers are usurped by the bankers and money-lenders, and the evil results of this usurpation are colossal ; they will disrupt and destroy civilization unless a remedy be applied. 14th. The remedy. - Frederick Raphael Burch [/quote] [/quote]
