6.180 The Eurodollar

What if you were put in charge of the World tomorrow? How would you run the planet?

If you have arrived onto this page from an external link or search engine, the material below will make no sense whatsoever unless you know why www.12-12-12.org was written. A very brief summary can be read by clicking here

This globally popular educational and research website lists every national and international problem in the world in a rather unusual and entertaining way, so remember to bookmark www.12-12-12.org in your favourites folder! For the record: Andronicos the author does not profess to greatness in any shape or form. Lets continue.................

Andronicos "The Great" as Director of the Human Race and Manager Planet Earth commands and Andronicos "The Cynic" responds as follows.........


As a matter of historic interest, back in 1970 the prime minister of Luxembourg set out a plan for establishing a Europe wide currency in 1980. One of the claims: to end war in Europe.


What makes the Sovereign tribes of Denmark, Sweden and the United Kingdom who they are and what they are is not the colour or shape of their money. It's what's inside the collective heart and mind that defines tribal character. Its history, its culture, its food, its clothes, its amusing mannerisms and its diverse citizens make up the tribal soul.

I direct the above 3 Sovereign tribes join the Eurodollar as soon as possible for the following 3 reasons -

  1. Banks and credit card companies will not earn between two and five percent of every transaction made "abroad" anymore.
  2. Importers, and I speak from experience, will be able to risk smaller profit margins if they don't have to plan for major currency fluctuations.
  3. The War Bond has a greater chance of success.

As a matter of practical interest to those that consider it important - each Sovereign tribe has the right to place their own tribal symbol, including their King or Queen if they have one, on Euro coins.

Nevertheless, on the tricky question as to whether there should ever be a European wide tax system, I ask for the following to be done: Get a fifty Eurodollar bill. Whose head do you see on it and what buildings are pictured? I haven't got a clue either, so I direct the following:

Pay tribal taxes to the state (subject to their compliance to international civil and criminal laws), pay European taxes to Europe (subject to a consensus vote by all tribes within the European Union agreed by all member states via referendum or parliamentary vote, ratified by treaty which the European Court will not veto as being against European Law or judged to be a financial cartel, or deemed an illegal protectionist ploy by the WTO to bypass banana quotas) and... pay God's things to God - who, as The Supreme Being is a monopoly.


In the meantime, JOIN THE EURO.
