Louis Even and the Michael Journal

My thanks to Paul Nollen for pointing me towards the work of a truly remarkable man - Louis Even (1885-1974). He was a lay Christian leader who founded the social credit movement in Quebec and a movement called the Pilgrims of Saint Michael. The Pilgrims produce something called the Michael Journal which turns out to be a treasure trove of fascinating ideas.

Take for example Louis Even's fable about five people washed up on a desert ile, which explains how money is created as debt by private banks. The story was first published in 1940 in the magazine "Vers Demain".  It's a great story - just 8 pages long - that you can read in English "The Money Myth Exploded", French "L'île des naufragés", Spanish "La Isla de los Naufragos", Portugeuse "A Ilha dos Naufragos", German "Die Insel der Shiffbrüchigen" and Polish "Wyspa rozbitkow". No excuses - you have to read this.!

The "Michael Journal" is available in several languages.

In the English section you can find many true gems. For example:
As I say - a real treasure trove.
