We’ve lived so long under the spell of hierarchy—from god-kings to feudal lords to party bosses—that only recently have we awakened to see not only that “regular” citizens have the capacity for self-governance, but that without their engagement our huge global crises cannot be addressed. The changes needed for human society simply to survive, let alone thrive, are so profound that the only way we will move toward them is if we ourselves, regular citizens, feel meaningful ownership of solutions through direct engagement. Our problems are too big, interrelated, and pervasive to yield to directives from on high.

Paying the Price for Financial Ignorance

Click here to access article by Don Quijones from Raging Bull-Shit

This is an excellent, understandable introduction to the biggest scam ever perpetrated on the human race by a small group known colloquially as "banksters". I am looking forward to viewing the film at the end of the article.

Also, read here what other knowledgeable people have said about banking and the creation of money down through the ages. Unfortunately, many of these people were a part of the ruling class that used this money creating power to secure their dominance over society. Thus, they were very conflicted individuals. The quote I like best was by John K. Galbraith:
The process by which banks create money is so simple the mind is repelled.
Although the method is basically simple, the elaborate history of its development and methods used to conceal it are quite complicated.
