“When a government is dependent upon bankers for money, they and not the leaders of the government control the situation, since 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.”

Napoleon Bonaparte

“The Government should create, issue, and circulate all the currency, and credits needed to satisfy the spending power of the Government, and the buying power of consumers." 

Abraham Lincoln

“Until control of the issue of currency and credit is restored to government and recognized as its most conspicuous and sacred responsibility, all talk of sovereignty of Parliament and democracy is idle and futile … Once a nation parts with its credit, it matters not who makes the nation’s laws … Usury once in control will wreck any nation.” 

William Lyon Mackenzie King, former Prime Minister of Canada

We need a ‘New Economics Movement’ to re-affirm these basic economic truths, even though they are far from new - for they were already recognised by the Spartans, the ancient Greeks and their  philosophers, by Roman and Byzantine emperors - and by most the English monarchs from the twelfth century - and until the creation of a privately-owned 'Bank of England' in the 17th Century - the model for the total monopoly over money creation and credit held by today's global international banks.
