A History of Central Banking and the Enslavement of Mankind
The role of money-lenders in history was once aptly termed bymany acute observers as the "Hidden Hand." It is the power tocreate, lend and accumulate interest on "credit," and then re-lendthat interest for further interest, in perpetuity, that createspervasive, worldwide debt, from the individual, to the family, tothe entire state. The ability to operate a fraudulent credit andloan system has long been known, and through all the slickness of asnake-oil salesman, the money-lenders - the same types Jesuswhipped from the Temple - have persuaded governments that bankingis best left to private interests. Many wars, revolutions,depressions, recessions, and other social upheavals, have beendirectly related to the determination of these money-lenders toretain and extend their power and profits. When any state,individual or idea has threatened their scam they have oftenresponded with wars and revolutions. The cultural and materialprogress of a civilization will often relate to the degree by whichit is free from the influence of debt, and the degradation thatresults when the money-lenders are permitted to regain power.Hence, Goodson shows that both World Wars, the Napoleonic wars, theAmerican Revolution, the rise and fall of Julius Caesar, theoverthrow of Qathafi in Libya and the revolution against TsarNicholas, among much else relate to this "Hidden Hand" in history.This is the key to understanding the past, present and future.
