What this is about is the greatest rip-off in history – the way money and debt are created and controlled.
We are down to the last few weeks of editing and need a boost across the finish line. The amount we are trying to raise is less than 10% of what has already been spent — a small amount for a feature-length documentary.
What this project is about is examining the greatest rip-off in history – the very way money and debt are created and controlled. This affects everyone on the planet. This is the basic cause of all our economic problems today.
This year — 2013 — is the 100th anniversary of the creation of the Federal Reserve System. This was a system which was sold to the public as a way to create stability for the U.S. financial system, but, in fact, just the reverse has been true. The film examines the roots of the Federal Reserve System and what was put in place at the secretive Jekyll Island meeting in 1910 where it was given birth?
Until we recognize what the basic problem is – in every nation – we certainly can’t fix it. In fact, nothing any national government does will fix the problem, and all of us will see mounting debts and sinking standards of living. Our children will inherit this mess, and it will get worse every single year.
The good news is we CAN fix this. It won’t take a war or a revolution; it only takes a simple understanding of the problem, and its simple solution.
The truth is that depressions are NOT normal. They are contrived. The truth is that nations don’t need a national debt. The truth is that governments generally aren’t PRINTING money wildly; governments are BORROWING money wildly. The truth is that ANYONE can understand what’s going on. This is not rocket science.
The truth is that those who are making money off this rip-off want to keep you confused – confused about the basic facts of what your money is and who creates it.”
