I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the civilized world, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.

Woodrow Wilson, after signing the Fed Reserve Act in 1913

What we learn from history is that we do not learn from history.

Capitalism will always survive in the United States as long as the government is willing to use socialism to bail it out.

Nathra Nader, Ralph Nader's father

Justice is as strictly due between neighbor nations as between neighbor citizens. A highwayman is as much a robber when he plunders in a gang as when single; and a nation that makes an unjust war is only a great gang.

Benjamin Franklin

If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that grow up around them will deprive the people of their property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.

Thomas Jefferson

This is a suspected fake quote.

Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

Albert Einstein


I like paying taxes. With them I buy civilization.

Oliver Wendell Holmes

Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want and deserve to get it good and hard.

H L Mencken

Each man must for himself alone decide what is right and what is wrong, which course is patriotic and which isn’t. You cannot shirk this and be a man. To decide against your conviction is to be an unqualified and inexcusable traitor, both to yourself and to your country, let men label you as they may.

Mark Twain


It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.



If the machine of government is of such a nature that it requires you to be the agent of injustice to another, then, I say, break the law.

Henry David Thoreau, On the Duty of Civil Disobediance, 1849


If you obey all the rules you miss all the fun.

Katharine Hepburn

Gentlemen, I have had men watching you for a long time and I am convinced that you have used the funds of the bank to speculate in the breadstuffs of the country. When you won, you divided the profits amongst you, and when you lost, you charged it to the bank. You tell me that if I take the deposits from the bank and annul its charter, I shall ruin ten thousand families. That may be true, gentlemen, but that is your sin! Should I let you go on, you will ruin fifty thousand families, and that would be my sin! You are a den of vipers and thieves.

Andrew Jackson, 1836, on closing the Second Bank of the US.

The average age of the world's greatest civilization has been two hundred years. These nations have progressed through this sequence. From bondage to spiritual faith; from spiritual faith to great courage; from courage to liberty; from liberty to abundance, from abundance to complacency; from complacency to apathy, from apathy to dependence, from dependence back into bondage.

Alexander Tyler circa 1787 re the fall of the Athenian Republic

Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the clouds of war, it is humanity hanging on a cross of iron.

Dwight Eisenhower

Men occasionally stumble across the truth. But most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing had happened.

Winston Churchill

Derivatives are weapons of mass destruction, carrying dangers that while now latent, are potentially lethal.

Warren Buffett


I believe in compulsory cannibalism. If people were forced to eat what they kill, there would be no more wars.

Abbie Hoffman

No generation has a right to contract debts greater than can be paid off during the course of its own existence.

military-industrial complex

In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together.

Dwight Eisenhower

A nation of well informed men who have been taught to know and prize the rights which God has given them cannot be enslaved. It is in the region of ignorance that tyranny begins.

Ben Franklin
