Creature from Jekyll Island

October 29, 2008

A link to this lecture was posted on the Campaign for Liberty website, and I had to post it here as well.  It is a lecture by Dr. Edward Griffin from 1998.  He is the author of a book called The Creature From Jekyll Island, which is about the beginning and goals of the Federal Reserve of the United States.

It was really enlightening to me.  I had heard of the way the Federal Reserve was created and how it was conceived by the banks for the banks, but this really put the Federal Reserve and our fiat money system into place.  You will be enlightened as well.

Our economic system is one built on fake money and a cartel agreement between the big Wall Street banks and the Federal Government.   Even though this lecture is ten years old, it probably is more relevant now than ever before.  The part about bailouts is EXACTLY what happened with the huge $700 billion bailout of Wall Street.

Please take the time to listen to this.  I know, it’s 71 minutes long, but you can download it to iTunes.  Listen to it at work or on your way home.  It will open your eyes to the world we live in.
