“I have unwittingly ruined my country.”

Are conspiracy theorists onto something sinister or have they simply smoked too much funny weed? It seems there is a concentrated effort to brand those who subscribe to alternate beliefs regarding the world’s power structure as a kooky bunch, but are they? Maybe where there’s smoke, there’s fire. Let’s take a quick look at what historical figures down through the ages have to say about the relationship between financiers and politicians.

Napoleon Bonaparte
“When a government is dependent upon bankers for money, they and not the leaders of the government control the situation, since the hand that gives is above the hand that takes. Money has no motherland; financiers are without patriotism and without decency; their sole object is gain.”

Niccolo Machiavelli
“For the great majority of mankind are satisfied with appearances as though they were realities, and are often more influenced by the things that seem than by those that are.”

Abraham Lincoln
“The money power preys upon the nation in times of peace and conspires against it in times of adversity. It is more despotic than monarchy, more insolent than autocracy, more selfish than bureaucracy.”

Henry Ford
“It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning.”

Woodrow Wilson (after signing the Federal Reserve Act)
“I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country.”

Feel better about everything being hunky dory out there? We don’t.
