Napoleon Bonaparte said the words, “The hand that gives is above the hand that takes. Money has no motherland; financiers are without patriotism and without decency: their sole object is gain.”
He believed that any government that borrows money from private banks, the government no longer controls the country, the private bank owners do.
This is explained, in perhaps too much detail, in this fascinating documentary entitled: “The Money Masters: How International Bankers Gained Control of America.” It is pretty long at 90 minutes, but I found it extremely informative and interesting.
As a supporter of Ron Paul, and hearing him speak against the ‘fiat’ money system America has today instilled in me the desire to learn more about it. This documentary accomplished that, along with some other materials.
This documentary goes way back in history to the earliest money systems with regards to debt and control of the money supply through today.
