    electorate and secure a position for themselves is abusive. Currency is a tool, it mediates transactions, much as the alphabet visually mediates the transmission of information and its retention over a long period of time. Any tool can be abused. A pen can be used to write or to stab. A hammer can be used to join two boards with a nail, or to bash in a skull.
    The quantity of currency available is not significant, except when some people are deprived of access to use it, just as how many letters are used on this page is insignificant, unless a person has been denied literacy.
