The Debt Engine is a phrase to describe the forever increasing private and government debt inherent in the Industrial Age economic model. It is time for something different, time for a new game.
The need to stay ahead of escalating debt fuels practically everything we do; creating a social environment in which certain types of behavior flourish that inhibits or destroys any tendency towards long term concerns of sustainable living practices.

The Bank Holiday of 1933
Over 9,000 banks failed in the US during the 1930s.

When Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR) first took office in 1993, his first act… Continue

At this very moment the Federal Reserve Bank and its owners are bringing to a conclusion the planned implosion of the financial economy of the United States. They are consolidating assets and control over the nation’s financial infrastructure as they ready the next stage of socialist tyranny.

What Happened In/To America?
There is a story about a farmer in Iowa that grew corn but had a problem with wild hogs coming in and eating all his produce. So he devised a plan.
Instead of letting them come in and devour all of his crop, he took a portion of it and set it out in a field for the hogs to dine on.
They were shy of it at first but gradually realized that it was much easier to glean their food from the pile he made for them than to forage in his fields and, since… Continue
