"When a government is dependent upon bankers for money, they and not the leaders of the government control the situation, since the hand that gives is above the hand that takes… Money has no motherland; financiers are without patriotism and without decency; their sole object is gain."
by:
Napoleon Bonaparte
(1769-1821) French emperor
Date:
1815

Not shooting the messenger, very accurate.

    No need to shoot him. Banksters, without patriotism and without decency. No motherland. The quote does give some insight to Napoleon's thinking, decency comes to mind. History gives so little of that side of things.
