“The issue which has swept down the centuries and which will have to be fought sooner or later is the people versus the banks.” - Lord Acton 1834-1902
“Banking was conceived in inequity and was born in sin.
The bankers own the earth. Take it away from them, but leave them the
ability to create money and with the flick of the pen they will create
enough deposits to buy it back again. However, take it away from them,
and all the great fortunes like mine will disappear and they ought to
disappear, for this would be a happier and better world to live in. But
if, you wish to remain the slaves of bankers and pay the cost of your
own slavery, let them continue to create money.” - Sir Josiah Stamp, Director of the bank of England in 1928, reputed to be the 2nd wealthiest man in England at the time.
