Will the new civil rights movement be the abolishment of the current debt money system, fractional reserve banking? A system that is entirely based on debt money, arguably robbing us of our human right to greater human potential?
Should “too big to fail” banks be bailed out?
Is a gold backed money system really the answer to today’s problems with fiat currency?
As more and more people learn that our paper and digital money actually come from a secretive private organization entirely outside the boundaries of the US government, not accountable to the citizens of the nation, they are questioning why the US Federal Reserve system exists at all.
Documentary producer Bill Still does an excellent job addressing that question and others. A former newspaper editor and publisher, having produced the highly acclaimed documentary, “The Money Masters”, Bill Still has now released a new documentary titled, “The Secret of Oz”, which has been voted 2010 Best Documentary at BIFF and winner of the Silver Sierra Award at Yosemite film festival.
The DVD can be purchased here: The Secret of Oz
The documentary does a superb job at explaining how money is created, the history of central banks and debt-based money systems, and potential solutions to today’s economic crisis. The film urges the public to take the power to create money away from private bankers and return it to the government (which has been done 6 times in US history).
He masterfully explains it’s not what backs our money, it’s who controls its quantity.
Today, most all nations of the world are based on the same privately owned money system, one where money gets created as debt to the government.
It is suggested that instead of a government creating bonds (debt), it should be creating dollars.
Thomas Edison once said, “If our nation can issue a dollar bond, our nation can issue a dollar bill. Both are promises to pay, but one promise fattens the usurers and the other helps the people.”
Henry Ford once said, “It is well that the people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning.”
People often say things like, “Congress isn’t responsive to the people”. Of course they are not… politicians are responsive to those with the power. Right now the banks have the power. We have to take back the power of the nations money. With the power of the banks diminished, the politicians will become responsive to the voters once again.
It is suggested that no bank is too big to fail and we don’t need their expensive compounding interest system. The nation can print its own money, debt free. It doesn’t mean that the banks would go away, only their business model would change.
Bill Still has taken the extraordinary step to make his documentary film, The Secret of Oz, freely available to view. It can be viewed here.
