The Banking Game

By Anna Von Reitz

Pretend that you are ten again.  You and your little playmates are out on the playground or roaming the neighborhood after school and you decide to play a game.  It's called "Banking". 
So you choose one of your friends to be "The Banker" and you all agree that he can cut up pieces of construction paper and stamp them with his "Special Stamp" and put spots on the pieces of paper --- 1 Spot, 5 Spots, 10 Spots, 20 Spots, and so on.... and from then on, you will all have to use this "Money" and you will have to give pieces of this Money valued at  "20 Spots" to another playmate playing the role of "The Government" if you want to access the playground equipment in the school yard. 

If you don't have enough of The Banker's Money to give to your pal playing The Government, you can't swing on the swings or play on the monkey bars or slide down the slide anymore, because you are "too poor".  

It should be obvious that all that has really changed is that by your own agreement, you are now stuck paying for something that was always free before.

After a couple weeks, almost all the "Money" that The Banker created is gone. It is being hoarded by a few rich guys, so he has to make more "Money" to keep the game going.  This means buying more construction paper, getting another rubber stamp, and hiring a couple Law Enforcement Officers to help The Government restrict access to the playground and make sure that those who don't pay don't get to play.  

Some of you are already too poor to ever get into the playground anymore, so you just hang around and kick cans.  Some of you earn enough Spots to go to the playground when you want, but it isn't as much fun at 20 Spots an hour.  By the third week of this, everyone hates The Banker and The Government and a rebellion is brewing.  

This is all really dumb, right?  Why should you need The Banker's Money to play in your own playground?  And who needs The Government, except for the Banker, who is using The Government to force everyone else to use his Money? 

Pretty soon, the Banker has hired four more Law Enforcement Officers, two Soldiers and a General.  

Now, instead of just using his Money to gain access to the playground, they are charging you five Spots to get a drink at the water fountain, ten Spots to use the bathroom, and fifty Spots a week to rent a locker at school.  

Soon, you are being charged to access anything and everything.  By Christmas, The Banker and The Government are insisting that you buy a License to enter the Lunch Room.  

You are being run ragged, just trying to keep up and keep functioning.  Your Lunchroom License has to be renewed every three months, and if it isn't, the Law Enforcement Officers sneak up on you, beat you up, and lock you in a closet.  

Forget about ever being able to go the playground again. 

You are struggling just to eat and buy yourself a little peace.  

One day as you are locked up in the closet wondering what went wrong, and worried about the "Air Tax" that The Banker and The Government are discussing (yes, they want you to pay them for breathing the air) --- you stop and you think --- WT?  

This "Money" is just construction paper with a stupid stamp on it. 

You knew The Banker when he was just ugly little Joey Pilsnik.  

You knew The Government when he was just Tom Tucker.   

What went wrong?  You started playing a stupid game.  It got out of hand.  Now, as you look around, everyone is running in circles.  They all actually think that Joey's "Money" has value.  

They believe they need his Money to go to the bathroom and to buy licenses to brush their teeth and licenses to enter the Lunch Room and Rental Agreements to rent a Locker and User Fee Cards to drink water---- and if they don't pay, what's to keep the LEO's from beating them up?  Some of the kids even think they have to pay the "Air Tax" so they can continue to breathe. 

And if they can't pay, then what?  

You look around and the world looks dismal.  The playground is empty.  Nobody can afford to play anymore. You are all kept too busy scrounging for some of Joey's Money.  And there is a pall of fear over everything, a sense of dread.  What happens if you can't come up with another thousand Spots a month to pay the Air Tax?  

Wake up, wake up, everybody.  Do you now recognize what this is?  What's going on?  And who is doing it do you?  Maybe you should get a huge crowd of outraged kids together and go confront Joey Pilsnik.  

You know what he's going to say, don't you?  

"Hey, you all chose me to act as Banker.  You set up this game, not me!"  

And you actually feel kinda sorry for him, because he is sweating like a dog, all ink-stained and miserable and scared looking, because he can't keep up with demand for his "Money", but the more he prints, the less it is worth, so the prices of everything go up, up, up..... 

So you go to The Government, Tom Tucker, and he blinks in his bovine fashion and says, "It's not my fault!  You elected me and told me we were playing this game..... You guys put me in office, and it's not much fun."  

So next you and your crowd of Oppressed Pre-Teens take your tennis rackets and baseball bats and turn on the LEO's and the Soldiers and the Generals that Joey hired as his Enforcers, and they do much the same thing.  They stare at you like you are crazy and they say,  "I dunno who is in charge of this madhouse.  I just work here.  I just follow orders...." 

So there you are, standing around looking at each other.  

You are all miserable, mad to the bone, you feel like the quality of your life has been sucked dry, yet the Ticker Tape is running and your "National Debt" is mounting by the hour and somewhere in the back of your mind someone is saying, "How are you ever going to pay this?"  

Joey is miserable and Tom is unhappy and you can see that the LEOs and Soldiers and Generals don't have a clue.  There doesn't seem to be anyone in charge and nobody to blame. Nobody but you, and you're a victim, too. 

Lord in Heaven, what a mess!  

Everyone is miserable or confused or both, with no end in sight, nothing making sense..... until.....unless.....we all just wake up and realize that it was our agreement to play this game that caused all this, that it isn't a fun or fair game to play, and that nobody really benefits from it. 

Even the Rich Guys are reduced to blithering idiocy, worried sleepless about all the digits flashing on all the screens everywhere. 

No wonder Our Father has promised to hit the reset button.   Our puny little brains are overcome.  We've fallen and we can't get up.  We rush around from Pillar to Post, thinking, well, if Joey's Money won't work, maybe Mikey's Money will?  Mikey's Money is made of metal instead of paper, so that has to be better, right?  

No.... well, then what?  Oh, cyber currency to the rescue!  All we need is "Bits" instead of "Spots" and everything will be all right?  

We've painted ourselves into a corner.  We've become dependent on a delusion and we simply can't imagine a world without money and yet, when you step back, you realize that "Money" doesn't exist.  And all this misery and all this striving and all this worry and all this work is about what?  

Nothing but our agreement to play this game. 

That, and our delusional belief that it is necessary. 

We could just decide to stop playing The Banking Game.  Think about that.

  1. Douay-Rheims Bible
    Therefore hearken not to your prophets, and diviners, and dreamers, and soothsayers, and sorcerers, that say to you: You shall not serve the king Babylon.
    The Yoke of Nebuchadnezzar
    …8As for the nation or kingdom that does not serve Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon and does not place its neck under his yoke, I will punish that nation by sword and famine and plague, declares the LORD, until I have destroyed it by his hand. 9But as for you, do not listen to your prophets, your diviners, your interpreters of dreams, your mediums, or your sorcerers who tell you, ‘You shall not serve the king of Babylon.’ 10For they prophesy to you a lie that will serve to remove you from your land; I will banish you and you will perish.…
    Matthew Henry Commentary
    27:1-11 Jeremiah is to prepare a sign that all the neighbouring countries would be made subject to the king of Babylon. God asserts his right to dispose of kingdoms as he pleases. Whatever any have of the good things of this world, it is what God sees fit to give; we should therefore be content. The things of this world are not the best things, for the Lord often gives the largest share to bad men. Dominion is not founded in grace. Those who will not serve the God who made them, shall justly be made to serve their enemies that seek to ruin them. Jeremiah urges them to prevent their destruction, by submission. A meek spirit, by quiet submission to the hardest turns of providence, makes the best of what is bad. Many persons may escape destroying providences, by submitting to humbling providences. It is better to take up a light cross in our way, than to pull a heavier on our own heads. The poor in spirit, the meek and humble, enjoy comfort, and avoid many miseries to which the high-spirited are exposed. It must, in all cases, be our interest to obey God's will.
    Jeremiah 27:9 Commentaries

    1. a follower,

      Based on what I see to be the sincere nature of your comments, I do believe I may have been wrong about your intentions on this blog and for that I offer my apology for suggesting otherwise.

      There are going to be a lot of players pop out of the woodwork based on events of late and it definitely won't be dull.


  2. "We have a Papist-controlled Municipal Government doing business as "the United States".
    This is from Annas article:
    And here is the thing, all of this has been the goal of these satanist, throughout time. This includes pre 1948!

  3. My solution would be beat the ever living crap out of Joey, Tom , the Enforcers... they were the bullies. They knew what they were doing and voluntarily kept doing it while everyone suffered. It shows who they are, evil. They had and have no moral compass and did not " love their nieghbor " . Its quite simple, where there is wrong, say it is wrong and fix it,whatever the cost.
    Anna, you write really nice stories , but they are stories. You give us about 85% of the information needed for remedy, solution or answer and refuse to give the rest or the proof.
    How about this story:
    Once there was a smart girl who wrote great stories ad naseum . Lots of people read them , believed them and actually did what was suggested only to be berated for not dotting an "i" or crossing a "t". Some people actually got arrested from listening to the smart girl and are currently serving long prison sentences as a result ! When the people asked questions they were answered with questions or given an answer that was totally unrelated or completley ignored....
    It seemed the smart girls idea of who everyone should be and what they should do was not in alignment, so the smart girl lashed out at the very people who read her stories, sent her money and told everyone about her wonderful stories...
    So, after many years and thousands of hours reading, studying, doing paperwork, recording notices and documents and jumping through every flaming hoop doused in gasoline that the smart girl suggested so that we can be free of these criminal bastards who have raped, robbed , pillaged and plundered us, the smart girl starts publically berating some of her most faithful readers in a petty, jealous way and starts to make herself look...well, petty and jealous. It seems the smart girl was not so smart, at least at being diplomatic, thinking ahead or showing any amount of gratitude or humility....maybe the smart girl was not so smart.

    Anyone care to finish the story ? My version at this point is a crash and burn apocolyptic end for something that started out with such good energy and hopefulness....

    Think " redemption " Anna . Maybe start by answering questions in a forthright manner, apologise to those whom you have wronged and straighten out the mess you created.
    I have written that its not right to do this publically, however since its difficult to get a response I felt doing this on the public forum would give you an oppurtunity to fix this satisfactorily for everyone who is affected.
    If I am attacked it shows not who you say I am but who you are. I have lost almost all my faith in you. Your actions have been disappointing and caused confusion and divide. You will probably write something. Please temper it and at least bounce it off people who will be unconditionally honest with you. It may be the best thing if you got ahead of this now before it degenerates any more. You are losing good people and doing irrepairable harm to our mission.

    1. What are the names of the people serving prison sentences for following Anna's advice? I would like to look up these cases and read what they were charged with and the facts of the cases. Anna has said people failed to listen and are now in prison like the Colorado 9. Well I would like to know who are the Colorado 9 so I can research why they are in prison. I have tried several times to look up this information without success. There are many stories without all the facts including your post. Who are the good people who are following the rules but are being ridiculed for not following the rules. This sounds like a schoolyard pissing contest.

      It is impossible to function without facts. If you have a minute to send an email: with the names of the people in prison and the contact emails of the good people following rules but being ridiculed. I have recorded all my documents over and above what Anna recommends. I signed up at American Assemblies. I'm on Delaware, a state with no coordinator. This has been a long and hard 3+ years for me after waking up in the middle of a crisis and spending hours researching and throwing everything I could find at the crisis. It is one thing to follow advise yourself but a whole different ballgame when advising others. I have several people now I want to send to paperupnow.weebly.comand Anna's website but I have no intention of causing harm to others, thanks, Annie McShane On Delaware.

    2. Bruce Doucette...look him up. He tried his way, it didnt work but Anna did not intervene, she claims to be trying privately...of she has so many answers and is an expert, then why is Doucette in prison doing 35 years ?
      FYI...I was in the know at the time all this happened... 519 and 520 is me

  4. Personally I quit using banks a long time ago, you really don't need orders work just fine and postal money orders are backed by gold, the answer to this whole mess is to quit using the banks! Or when and if Anna gets the Nations State bank up and functioning I will use that bank possibly.

  5. At this point "All that Is" needs to do a BIG FLUSH such has happened in the past because the world is now an insane asylum!!

  6. The means of maintaining sanity in this man made social mess is realize no one is stopping you from conducting every private activity needed to better your circumstances.

    Downsize your financial nut. Drop unproductive activities. Get up from your comfy couch and use your body and mind and imagination to find ways to better your self and your family. Replace the dead light bulb. Buy a safe and keep valuables locked up under only your control. Don't trust strangers. Develop relationships with people who are careful to respect and serve the God of love. Avoid those who are already lost in darkness, who refuse to look at the light of Christ, and who have no relationship with the Son of God. Read the scriptures for inspiration, finding endless gems of wisdom with which to discern the meaning, methods, and mysteries of godliness, peace, personal power, and methods of self advancement as a loved child of God. Learn to revel in not spending money, by trading and bartering, realizing your needs are relatively easily met by living simply and eating at the lower end of the food chain, minimizing industrialized meat, chicken, farmed fish, thrifting in thrift stores, using cash, bartering, networking with others who have discovered the magic of self reliant living. Make every day a day of increasing your skills in these and other smart, sensible, logical, thoughtful enterprizes.

    You will discover there are many sub cultures functioning efficiently below the mantra of the credit card, bank account, debt driven masses who are in a stupor about doing what the advertisers entice. Avoid booze and drugs, smoking and stimulants. Find your level with natural living so your body can heal itself. Pay attention to gut health, getting good exercise, sleep, and spiritual nourishment.

    Refining, that is redefining on our own terms what relationship we have with banks, code enforcers, legislators, can progress unabated over time, using Anna's tips to arrive at freer, more prosperous, more self defined levels of enjoying life.

    Make every day count toward redefining your life in freedom with God and God's Nature, and outside the artificial matrix. Politically that would be "without the United States".
