I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the civilized world. No longer a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.
~ Woodrow Wilson after creating the Federal Reserve.
“Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men’s views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of somebody, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.”
~ Woodrow Wilson

Lecture by G. Edward Griffin
Filmed in 1994, none of the basic facts have changed. G. Edward Griffin argues in this video that the US Federal Reserve should be abolished for 7 reasons:
1. It is incapable of accomplishing its stated objectives.
2. It is a Cartel operating against the public interest.
3. It is the supreme intrument of usury.
4. It generates our most unfair tax.
5. It encourages war.
6. It destabilized the economy.
7. It is an instrument of totalitarianism.

How Fractional Reserve Banking Works
Excerpt from Peter Joseph’s “Zeitgeist Addendum”
This documentary goes into many other areas, but includes a section on fractional reserve banking. Much of “Zeitgeist” advocates a resource based economy, and sounds rather socialist in nature. Judge for yourself.
