The True Nature Of Banking

My view: 

The most important part of the scene starts at the 1:20 mark.

How rare to find a succinct summary of the banking system.
It also explains one reason why I left the industry after 25 years.  Perhaps I'm a slow learner, but after 20 years or so, I began to realize that debt is not so much a tool but a weapon used by banks and governments to enslave rather than liberate.  Do not be fooled by the illusion of democracy.  The true way to control people and ultimately countries is with debt.

To enjoy any degree of personal liberty in such a system, it is imperative to be carry little or no debt and have a substantial amount of savings including precious metals.  In the words of Marc Faber, "Be your own central bank".
