I go to the link, and the first thing I see is that it's hosted by Ewe Toob.

THEY have an Agenda they're pushing - and it isn't the Red Pill program. They want the truth HIDDEN. They censor and ban messages that don't push their agenda of sexual deviancy and World Socialism.

Good luck with that. I'll spend my time elsewhere.

You are letting your feelings run your thoughts.
IT IS NOT RUN BY J-TUBE!
It is a video by G. Edward Griffin & it is non-biased, straight talk.
Give it 20 minutes & then tell me it isn't the Red Rill Program.

Youtube doesn't allow straight talk.

No matter who produces it.

So when Ewe Toob allows something to remain up...I'm automatically suspicious.

Not everything that's called "Straight Talk" really is.
Nobody on the planet with more integrity and clarity of thought than GEG.

I havent read/watched the link - but here are a couple of thoughts to add to the discussion...

1. Martin Armstrong doesnt have much respect for Griffin's work - or viewpoint for that matter. Not saying MA is right - but just putting it out there.
2. As to the cause...it was the creation of the Fed - which was enabled by Woodrow Wilson...he even admitted later in life that it was the biggest mistake he had ever made.

I think the faultline between Armstrong and Griffin is in the fact that the Fed - AS INITIALLY DESIGNED - was a system of de-centralized Fed branches - each of which could independently assist local businesses during times of credit stress - but were limited to only AAA rates corporate bonds...each Fed branch could independently set interest rates to ensure the movement of money to the parts of the country it was needed. Armstrong makes the argument that IF the Fed had been allowed to function as designed - it would have been a positive for the country...

But - Griffin just hops over this part of the history and goes directly to the fact that the Feds charter/purpose was changed to support the purchase of US bonds to support WWI...and its been down hill ever since.

JMHO the Fed's only positive function is to act as a national check clearinghouse. That role has been declining in importance for at least a decade. (I think I write a grand total of two checks a year, to pay for (criminal) property taxes.)

And there's no reason check clearing cannot be handled by another entity completely detached from the Federal government.

Like church and state, we need a total separation of money and state.

How many here have lived under a different system than the Federal Reserve debt money system...?

That's right. None of us. It's all we know. Fiat debt money system is how it's 'always' been for us. Griffin poses a different system.

It was the camel's nose under the tent.

Banks are corporations with business plans. Corporations live beyond the originators of the plan. Hundreds of years or more.

The Zionists of course! They removed the last of the opposition in April of 1912 in the North Atlantic

America changed to a financial empire a minute after the revolution. The bankers who financed the revolution wanted to be paid back and the newly formed federal government instituted a whisky tax to pay them back. Secretary of the Treasury Hamilton accompanied 12,000 federal troops to collect the tax, and the reaction was known as the Whisky Rebellion. Its been empire ever since.

The best book on the Federal Reserve is the original, the research was paid for by Ezra Pound (while a political prisoner) to Eustace Mullins who did the research and wrote the book - The Secrets of the Federal Reserve. Griffin's research wasn't original.
