    This mixed media lecture is worth watching. Despite the vid being based on a lecture the speaker's style and plenty of other video and pictures provide an entertainment value that feels more like a documentary then a lecture. He does a great job explaining the Fed and fractional reserve banking, how it become established in our country up to the 2008 run on the derivatives market, and accurately relating these modern problems with what has been explained in many other docs about monetary reform issues. 

    As to the last comment I do agree a few of the quotes in here are in fact spurious (not real)...this is because these are spurious quotes that have been in the monetary reform arena for centuries at times.  For example the Jefferson quote is actually a combination of something he did say in a speech, something he wrote in a letter, and a part in the middle that appears to be made up by the Social Justice movement of the 30's that fought against a parasitical monetary system during the depression....the quote is something TJ certainly would have agreed with and doesn't give a false impression of his views but the terms inflation and deflation weren't used in a financial sense until far after his time - still the quote is repeated in dozens of docs and hundreds of books about monetary reform so it's quite easy to believe this quote is true if you don't do exhaustive research of source documents.  Try reading Zarlinga's "The Lost Science of Money" if you would like 800 pages of exhaustively researched historical facts of money from Mesopotamia to our day and age, complied with help from the researchers of the American Monetary Institute if you would like more precise historical details and quotes including references to source docs (ebook is on pirate bay). Still, for under 2 hours of info this doc does a great job explaining why modern finance is a ponzi scheme and you come away without real misconstrued notions like in many on the subject....just maybe look up source docs before choosing a quote for your sign when you go protest the Fed :-)

    Great video, but I have to say that the quote from Woodrow Wilson is misattributed. I had to look it up all day today to find the validity of the statement.

    This really is one of the most precise docs on the Fed and the fractional reserve system. The system is tragic and absurd, but it is the system we are stuck with...for now. If this documentary had any impact on you then you have a duty to share this info w/ your friends and family. Do some research on the Fed and the history of the debt slavery monetary system...Then you shall know the truth, and the truth will set you free.

    I want to do something about this as well, John. I don't know about the rest of world, but I'm tired of being a slave.

  • I'm getting active.

  • Excellent video....I thought I had some understanding as to what caused this finanical crisis until I watched this video...The blinders have been taken off. I will share this video with many more people...The more peoplein the know, the greater the chances that something can be done.
