It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning. Henry Ford

Those who surrender freedom for security will not have, nor do they deserve, either one. Benjamin Franklin

The idea that you know what is true is dangerous, for it keeps you imprisoned in the mind. It is when you do not know, that you are free to investigate. ~ Nisargadatta Maharaj

"We have been fed lies about the US economy for months on end. We've listened to lies about inflation; we've been told lies about our “healthy economy.” As far as I'm concerned, manipulation of the markets is tantamount to lying. Manipulating the markets (as per QE) is forcing the markets to behave in an unnatural way, thereby destroying the normal action of free markets and thwarting the forces of supply and demand. And I ask myself, what's behind these endless lies?

It's always a matter of money, position, and power. Thousands of men and women depend for their livelihood on employment at the Federal Reserve. They live in fear of losing their jobs. So naturally, one of their objectives is to preserve or endure their jobs. This means keeping the Fed alive at all costs. Underlying all this is fear. The fear in this case is that Congress may, one day, vote the Fed out of existence. So fear is really behind the lies, and thus the system perpetuates itself. Who, I ask, dares to tell the truth? The truth-teller in the end is too often squashed, and the lies go on. 

It's up to the private media to expose the lies. But, for instance, when the media faces the question of US gold, the media is somehow silenced. So the ever-present possibility that the truth will come out -- hangs in the balance.”
