With nothing to report today, let us consider the words of President Woodrow Wilson after signing the Federal Reserve into existence:
“I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the civilised world … no longer a Government by free opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.”
This is not just an American truth. It’s a Western truth.
Isn’t it about time we wake up to the fact that our vote means nothing?
