Question to all politicians

Letter from a reader.
I have a question to all parties; in that I don't think that any political party in the UK is really is looking to change because they are unwilling address some basic fundamentals.
All politicians globally talk about economic boom and bust and how they will stop it but this is they way things are in our current monetary system. This boom and bust has consistently happened since our current monetary system has come into being for the past 400 to 500 years post its implementation in Italy then adopted globally.
Let's look at profit: banks make money and profit out of interest, they feed money into a system and change us for that privilege. Governments borrow money and are charged interest to do that; who gets that interest? Someone somewhere is getting rich out of us and we are meant to feel grateful!!!
Goods and services are bought by people; mainly people in work but also people out of work that are given money by the government; this includes anyone who works for the government; politicians; the forces and police etc. they are all paid by government money. Therefore if you take the UK in isolation, if all the services and goods produced by people who work are then used or purchased by those people who produced them only then no business will make profit as the only money in flow would be the money paid to those people by the businesses that employ them. Therefore in order for a business to make profit the people who work for them must borrow money and all the people paid by the government on also borrowed money or taxes paid by people in work buy the goods and services. Therefore a business can only make profit out of borrowed money, why don't we change this? The system we have will always perpetuate boom and bust as we never have enough money in circulation to pay all the interest being charged globally. There governments invent new money to feed into the system to cover interest payments, the value of things never changes, and it's just that money devalues by inflation. Prior to the current monetary system for thousands of years a cow was the same coin value; with the current monetary system and interest the cost of a cow in money terms will always go up were its real value will remain the same.
My other question is how can people own land, is it not like air, it has always been there it's not made or manufactured, the only way it could have been owned originally would be to take it by force. By taking land away from people you remove their ability to survive independently, they then require money to buy food and shelter, is this not slavery in a more business efficient form?
The people of this country keep going on about immigration and what a problem it is; have you ever wondered why no major politician wants to stop this outright, this is because we in our particular monetary system need immigrates to work in our country, pay taxes and buy goods to prop up the government and pension schemes because the population is in decline for the so called British people. The far more dangerous pattern is one of off-shoring; in order to reduce costs and make more profit a company will move as much work as possible off-shore to cheaper employees in third world countries; therefore reducing the tax income to the government in this country, maybe the ultimate aim is to make this county a third world country by salary reductions so that we can then become the cheaper third world resource suppliers to the now current third world.
The advances in technology was originally seen as a way to enhance our lives by reducing the amount of work we need to do, allowing more free time whilst not reducing standards and improving society. What it has done is increase profit, make us work harder and longer for less money in the fear that we will loose our jobs and the ability to house and feed ourselves.
I am not a left wing or right wing person but someone who maybe thinks outside the box.
