“If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their money, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them, will deprive the people of their property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.”
I have already watched this movie. Insightful. It begs the questions…
I just stumbled on it and was awe struck. I don’t know if it’s 100% accurate but it certainly makes you think doesn’t it.
I like this site. Insightful, diverse links! Good eye (and mind :).
Snopes says Bush did not do what the video says.
But I agree debt is slavery!
Kate, thank you and welcome here!
Zeitgeist is a very insightful film. Check it out if you give even a small shit about the state of society and the world.
Wikipedia says that through judicial activism the IRS claim is false.
Though there are some embellished parts of the movie I am in agreement that debt is slavery. The motivation of all this evil is to enslave the nations to debt, so they can control them through their pocketbooks. Therefore, no amount of judicial or political activism is going to work against these powerful forces when they enslaved us in the first place through our debt. Until we get rid of the debt and earn our freedom we will not be able to stand against these forces with no strings attached.
Let’s throw off these notions of “rising up” and putting a “new person in office” will somehow change everything. These new people are all controlled and influenced by them. They are all more of the same. Until we as a people determine to lose our own debt, our government, who is a reflection of us, will continue to mount more debt through wasteful spending and wars. Once we are a people free from debt than the government will be forced to be a government that is motivated to lose its debt. The government will then not controlled by “international bankers”. The government will be a government controlled by the people.
