"The important contribution of MMT is it's explicit identification of the currency itself as a simple public monopoly, and all the ramifications thereof"

If this were just a value-neutral scientific observation of the facts about what has been done to our money, that would be one useful thing. But instead of merely uncovering the fraud, MMT *advocates* the fraud, loudly. This is not economic science, it is political capitulation to the exploiters and pandering to them.

 

I prefer "Tu ne cede malis sed contra audentior ito" or "Do not give in to evil but proceed ever more boldly against it"

Many rant about how too much money is in politics, but the bigger problem is that politics are in our money. The government has no business being in the money business. The free market created money in the first place and is better equipped to provide it. Demand the separation of Currency and State! (Or at the very least a return to Constitutional money)
