“All magick comes with a price.”
– Rumplestiltskin / the Dark One / Mr Gold, Once Upon A Time
It premiered in 2011 as the top-rated drama. The pilot episode attracted almost 13 million viewers.
Now in its fifth season—and recently confirmed for a sixth—around 5 million fans in North America alone still tune in on Sunday nights to the ABC’s primetime TV series Once Upon A Time.
Doubtless very few have a clue that it is really a brazen allegory for money-lending. More specifically, for the practice of usury.
Couched in the guise of a modern fairy tale, it is really a story of magick debt “money”, that breeds more money.
For the magician, that is.
By the “magick” spell, of the binding contract.
The Promise To Pay. The I Owe You.
All the magician has to do, is tempt you to sign on the dotted line.
What do we owe, in “return” for this magick?
Our “firstborn”. The first “fruit” of our “labour”.
Most of us don’t really understand the “price” of magick. Compound interest is the “small” yet ever growing “price” we must pay, for enjoying the comforts of “magick” debt money.
I have watched only the first series of Once Upon A Time. From the premiere episode (clip below) onwards, it is filled to overflowing with symbolism and thinly-veiled allusions to the system of debt magick that has enslaved us all in a prison of Time.
All the other clips shown here are from episode four—aptly titled “The Price of Gold”—which first aired on November 13, 2011. Yes, that is 11/13/11 for fans of numerology, occultism, and conspiracy.
Please watch attentively the three slightly longer clips below, for a fuller context of that particular episode.
And for a comprehensively footnoted essay on how our modern system of debt money—and its supporting schools of economic theory—arose from the Hermetic-Kabbalist principles of double-entry bookkeeping in the 15th century, please read On Principal And Interest, Hermetic Magick, And The Lords Of Time.
A final thought.
Some—myself included—believe that private, for-profit banking corporations should not have the exclusive, government-backed and -enforced legal privilege of money creation. Especially when the only form of “money” these magicians create, is usury-bearing debt.
So if you have found some value (information, knowledge) in this post, perhaps you might be generous-hearted enough to do me a small favour.
That is, other than sharing this post with others.
Please take a look at the concept website I have created, explaining my idea for an alternative “money” (currency) system – deror.org.
I think every man (and woman) should be their own central banker.
Should you still hold any doubts that Once Upon A Time is an allegory for usury, here are some snippets from the episode immediately following the one depicted above. Episode five—titled “The Still Small Voice”—also helps us to see that the “money” magicians are without excuse; that they know right from wrong, but choose to ignore the still small voice of God within (Conscience).
Importantly, it also confirms the foundational truths about the debt-money economy, as detailed in my essay.
And again, a slightly longer and more revealing clip, for context:
