    The actual biggest scam in history has to be Anthropogenic Global Warming, without a doubt.

    Organized religion is the biggest scam in history.

    For religion, I think people genuinely want to know the answer to the great question (which is really unknowable or untestable). I don`t think Pope Francis is a scam artist. Pope Francis is a very generous man.

    @CrakrJak

    How about a private bank that loans money out of thin air to the US government at interest, ad nauseam? It`s one of the most brilliant ventures (for the shareholders of the Fed) in human history, if you ask me.

    @Andrew155 - I`m talking about the institution in general. It was all a scam created to keep the peasants in check.

    How does `knowledge` of the system help?! - everyone is a slave to the system and can`t change it

    NOMAD - yes! Exactly. The most stunning fact in this video is that the Fed has shareholders. How many people actually know that?

    Let`s take your logic to the extreme,

    Case 1: All people know sufficiently about it
    Case 2: Zero people know sufficiently about it

    Which situation do you think would be the best?

    It`s presented with a touch of hyperbole, but basically everything in the video is correct.

    It`s not entirely the Fed`s fault. If we were still on an (un-devalued) gold standard, the Fed would be unable to print dollars out of thin air. But we haven`t been there since the 1940s.

    I agree with it but I don`t believe us knowing about it can affect it. Money talks. The minute any nation tries to wrestle the gold standard away from the US it gets attacked as terrorists/having WMDs/gassing their own....take your pick.

    I disagree. With sufficient `social capital`(which we are sorely lacking in the US), representatives are actually just that: representatives of the people and can substantively change things.

    Iceland is case and point what I am talking about. Research how they handled the economic crisis in 2008 and you may be surprised how far an informed populace can go.

    drawman, we don`t have a gold standard. And your list of countries we attacked (together with your own country, mind you) includes Iraq, Afghanistan, and…I guess Serbia?) I don`t really think they are consequential to the global economy.

    Informed citizenry would go a long way, but it won`t happen. I think it`s inherently easier for Iceland with 300k people to participate in their government. Apparently their PM is in the phone book.

    You mention the term Federal Reserve and people will either have no idea what you`re talking about, or they will label you a conspiracy theorist.

    Ah the Fed. The organization that has plagued my nightmares since I turned 12 and first read about it.

    Here`s to the last fourteen years of my life!

    Just one long ad for goldsilver.com. Skip to the very end for the proof, no pun intended.
