I have heard all the conspiracy theories about the Illuminati and elite of the world controlling the people through this unconstitutional non-government bank and frankly found it a bit too bizarre to believe. Surely, there was something about it I didn’t understand. That was ten years ago.
Since that time, I have read more and more – watched documentaries and although now fully believe this is the vehicle by which the wealthy elite manipulate the economy of the United States and thus the world. I found the book End the Fed by Ron Paul and figured I would get a more sane take on this conspiracy and while I did get the information couched in less “cloak and dagger” the facts remain the same. The Fed is out of control and our belief that we are protected by our laws and leaders is not even remotely true.
I still don’t understand everything about the system to pretend I comprehend what would actually happen if we did END the Fed, but I believe 100% that we should have some oversight, reporting and control over the actions of the Fed.
If you want to understand the reality of our monetary system, read this book. If you want to see past the political buzz words and sound bytes, read this book. If the whole idea of our leaders not being good guys bother you, then steer clear of this one.
