But listen: almost nothing's as important as the question of what money is. I don't insist that you agree with Stephen Zarlenga, but I do think you'd be ill-advised to ignore this issue. Zarlenga is the author of the American Monetary Act, a bill submitted to Congress by Dennis Kucinich earlier this year.
So do whatever you have to do to get through the first four or five minutes of this audio -- with all its dubious references to entheogens and Jesus and divine mushrooms and so on -- get through all of that so that you can hear the interview between Irvin and Zarlenga. I'm throwing all my weight behind this one. I'm not sure what I think about it yet, but I'm very confident that it's an issue that we will ignore at our own widespread peril.
