Malak Markers and Malak Money

          Life is full of uncertainties, and now, with rising fears of a world economic collapse looming on the horizon, there’re new and unprecedented dangers, for which few if anyone seems to have a real solution. If one day soon you or your family found itself without cash, or with cash that had simply lost its value, would you be able to find an alternative method of maintaining financial solvency? Perhaps the key lies in understanding how “money” actually works.

           As you may or may not know, the currency that we all use today is no longer backed by anything except debt; this, and, of course, our continued confidence in it as an object of inherent value. In other words, the mysterious and awesome power of the dollar is directly tied to the faith and the trust that normal everyday people such as ourselves have in the enduring substance of both our government, as well as the other related institutions, which currently claim to back our national debt.

           With this in mind, the Malakim Society has developed a private economy that operates independently of this far larger, yet largely unaccountable, currency system. Our private economy allows select graduates of the Malakim Academy to exercise their innate ability to create value through the exchange and redemption of their own personal debts, as well as the debts of other trusted Malakim, by the ultimately constructive usage of something called a Malak Marker. This special power is granted to them in order to enhance their already considerable ability to "Do Good, Grow Strong, and Help Others To Do The Same."

What are Malak Markers?

           The incurring of a debt by one of our most trusted Malakim occurs at what we will call the point of purchase, which is when anyone, anywhere, consents to the exchange of their own goods or services in return for a special “debt marker” from a select member or members of our organization. This debt marker provides the person offering up their goods or services with an enduring record of this value transfer, as well as an easy way to locate the particular Malak responsible for incurring this debt. Yet this marker, tied as it is to the reputation of the Malakim Society as a whole, is something much, much, more than just this.

           By virtue of their original transaction, this debt marker has been imbued with the same amount of value as the original item or service for which it was exchanged. Although it is only redeemable with the Malak who originally incurred this debt, in fact, this debt marker’s inherent value allows it to be exchanged between any two people precisely as they might exchange cash itself. Unlike with mere barter, the Malak Marker has now become a monetized talisman for an amount of value that is exactly equivalent to the original item purchased.

           Obviously such a delicate system requires a certain` amount of governance and oversight from others within the Malakim Society, simply so as to protect all of its many users from the various kinds of fraud that will naturally arise anywhere that there is something of value to be stolen or abused. This is where the Malakim Agency comes in.

           The Malakim Society only grants its most tried, trusted, and true members the obviously dangerous right to distribute such debt markers. However, as this is still a system that must be closely regulated if it is to continue functioning smoothly, it is the Malakim Agency’s job to help anyone who’s holding one of the Society's markers to both locate and negotiate with any particular Malak to whom one of these markers must ultimately return for redemption; that is, on the off chance that anyone should ever choose to actually redeem one. Redemption, after all, is hardly something that’s actually necessary or even inherently desirable, unless, of course, the bearer of the debt has, for whatever reason, lost their faith in said Malak, and, hence, in the organization as a whole. Think of it in terms of the money you have now; you’d rather exchange it for things of actual value then attempt to redeem it for the value it represents at the Federal Reserve, right?

           The truth is we never redeem our money, we only continue to exchange it in order to satiate our inescapable economic habit. The irony is that all such exchanges are based on an unexamined assumption in the minds of people everywhere that these pieces of paper can actually be redeemed, even though money actually can’t be redeemed for anything, like gold or silver, the way it once could.

           Redemption of a Malak Marker, although, at times, seemingly necessary, obviously destroys the original debt, and thus sets free the original value which had been so ingeniously created and captured at the original point of purchase. Therefore, though it may provide a quick and easy way to put to rest a worried mind that has grown unsure about the reality of the value that it holds in its hands, such redemption will ultimately only serve to restrict the total amount of value, via these debt markers, that we all now have freely circulating for further fruitful exchanges within our new alternative economies.

           It is for this very reason that the Malakim Agency works so very hard to further such fruitful exchanges as these, or at the very least ensuring that they are never very hard to come by, while always bearing in mind that it is only each markers potential for redemption which ultimately ensures that this economy’s “currency” continues to be both solvent and trusted for its continued usage within all such transactions.

           If you have any questions or issues concerning one of our markers or other heroically generated funds (see below), or if you would like to be considered for entry into the Malakim Academy, to perhaps one day receive your own book of exchangeable Malakim markers, please contact the Malakim Society, and, of course, thank you for both your continued trust and your support of this revolutionary new movement.

(So then what’s Malak Money?)

           Malak Money is another form of alternative currency which is backed, not by debt per say, but rather by local acts of heroism; each Malak dollar serves as a physical expression of the debt of gratitude created by the heroic work of the Malakim. Each dollar is generated by a specific act of charity or goodwill done on behalf of a person in need and has a serial number which allows anyone to trace every new dollar thus created back to its original heroic event. Each heroic service is sanctioned and recorded by the Malakim High Council as having been preformed by a recognized and respected member or members of the Malakim Society of Heroes.

           As with the personal Malak Markers drafted by Malakim trusted to handle such a serious responsibility, The Malakim High Council works to maintain the solvency of this alternative economy by helping to facilitate the easy exchange and redemption of every Malak dollar in circulation. However, it’s important to note that, unlike Malak Markers, which are each backed by the personal guarantee of every Malak to, when necessary, redeem them immediately for cash (or, when permitted by the redeemer, a service of equivalent value) the Malak dollars which may be created by the heroic services of these very same Malakim do not place them under the same burden of responsibility, per say. However, should the original benefactor the Malak money fail to pay forward his or her debt to the Society, this burden may fall once more upon the Malak on whose behalf this charity was extended. So, for all intents and purposes, Malak Markers and Malak Money can be considered as having ultimately equivalent values.
