The Secret of Oz – “IT’S NOT WHAT BACKS OUR MONEY, IT’S WHO CONTROLS ITS QUANTITY”

After viewing Bill Still’s award winning movie, “The Secret of Oz,” you will never view “The Wizard of Oz” or our economy with the same child eyed unawareness as I once did.

The Secret of Oz is a terrific analogy and Bill walks us all the way to REAL solutions that can move us past naive HOPE, and into a fulfilling future, one without debt based money and one without the manipulations and flaws of a gold standard. Bill pulls back the curtain of history and together we will show how the issues have been boxed in over time – Republican/ Democrat, Gold Standard/ DEBT based fiat.

Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain!


Bill’s movie, “The Secret of Oz” presents history in a fascinating way, he then picks up on author L. Frank Baum’s symbolisms and spells them all out for you – The yellow brick road, the silver slippers, the Emerald City, the mindless Scarecrow, the heartless Tin Man, the cowardly Lion. Even the witches and flying monkeys have meanings that you will find fascinating.



Bill takes you on a trip around the world and through time, his journey returning us from the land of OZ back to the reality of Kansas. He spent a great deal of time and money bringing us this film, I highly encourage everyone to buy it and then show it to family and friends. Discuss it, but then ACT on it. Don’t leave it to HOPE that others will jump up and save the day, for we must all seize it, because hope is but a dream, it requires ACTION to make dreams come true.

I’ve been looking for the right way to move forward and Bill’s movie has opened up a window of understanding. Yes, he presents some answers in the end, but there are many details to be worked out… How in the world would you ever implement such an idea? Well, don’t hold your breath waiting for the central bankers or our beholden politicians to do it for you, they are much too busy building boxes.

I realize that as many view this trailer they will scream, “INFLATION!” They may even think that Nate’s gone off the deep end… but I am sincere in saying that I believe we can rise up from our unworkable debt based math and return quickly to a prosperous future, but first we must pull back the curtain and view history as it is, not how the men behind the curtain box it and present it to you!

I think this film can help spark a movement… I would like to see a new political party spring up, one that understands history, how the current money system works, and how to implement a money system that will really work for a sustainable and prosperous future. I will help to lay the foundation for such a party and will do so by laying out in a series of chapters a new path forward. Not a fanciful yellow brick road and not a fractional debt based bubble highway either.

Please view the film and enter into a healthy discussion. Help me prove that the people’s heads are not filled with straw, that we have heart, and that with lion-like courage we can have the AUDACITY TO ACT and turn our discussion into reality.
