“I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies.
If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks] will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.
The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.”
- Thomas Jefferson
From a letter sent in 1802 to the Secretary of the Treasury, Albert Gallatin; it was published later, in 1809, in The Debate Over The Recharter Of The Bank Bill.
Is it not frightening that, over 200 years ago, Thomas Jefferson knew exactly what the real dangers were that our then rather young country faced?
Is it not frightening to realize that things have not changed one bit, that we are, all of us, (except the top 1%), now living the nightmare of his warning - facing those exact same dangers?
Even then the banks had the ability to fabricate and execute financial crashes and subsequent economy rebirths, resulting in the effective manipulation of our society and the subjugation and total control of the population in its entirety.
Spot on Mr. Jefferson, spot on.
When will we the people disallow this criminal insanity?
