    Sobering

    Money creation has to be given back to the people.

    The book confirmed everything I believe.

    Banks were created because people could not carry around their gold, so they had to store it in a bank. This was good until these banks discovered the miracle of credit - which is very good UNTIL it's abused. Credit WILL always be abused when we entrust our money to these unaccountable banks. Give people the power of credit instead of banks because banks are no longer necessary.
