"Of all the tyrannies on human kind
the worst is that which persecutes the mind."
"Tyranny seldom announces itself. ...
In fact, a tyranny may exist without an individual tyrant.
A whole government, even a democratically elected one, may be tyrannical."
"Democracy is more cruel than wars or tyrants."

"The 'nations,' as they are called, with whom our pretended
ambassadors, secretaries, presidents, and senators
profess to make treaties, are as much myths as our own.
On general principles of law and reason, there are no such 'nations.'...
Our pretended treaties, then, being made with no legitimate or
bona fide nations, or representatives of nations, and being made,
on our part, by persons who have no legitimate authority to act for us,
have intrinsically no more validity than a pretended treaty
made by the Man in the Moon with the king of the Pleiades."
"Hypocrisy is anything whatever may deceive the cleverest and most
penetrating man, but the least wide-awake of children recognizes it,
and is revolted by it, however ingeniously it may be disguised."

"History records that the money changers have used
every form of abuse, intrigue, deceit, and violent means possible
to maintain their control over governments
by controlling the money and its issuance."
"The whole profit of the issuance of money has provided the capital of
the great banking business as it exists today. Starting with nothing
whatever of their own, they have got the whole world into their debt
irredeemably, by a trick.
This money comes into existence every time the banks 'lend' and
disappears every time the debt is repaid to them. So that if industry
tries to repay, the money of the nation disappears. This is what makes
prosperity so 'dangerous' as it destroys money just when it is most
needed and precipitates a slump.
There is nothing left now for us but to get ever deeper and deeper
into debt to the banking system in order to provide the increasing
amounts of money the nation requires for its expansion and growth.
An honest money system is the only alternative."
"In a small Swiss city sits an international organization so obscure and secretive....Control of the institution, the Bank for International Settlements, lies with some of the world's most powerful and least visible men: the heads of 32 central banks, officials able to shift billions of dollars and alter the course of economies at the stroke of a pen."
