Did you know that "Fight Club" was released only to a very limited number of theaters, and had very little advertisement.
Warren Buffet hated the movie, and by that time the ICBs had gotten their claws into Hollywood, after Newt changed the laws so that ICBs could buy our nations media, and so the movie that had been created before the industry had gotten completely bought out, barely managed to escape, and Buffet actually has a degree of humanity.
"Fight club was a mule, not allowed to breed. This is why Hollywood stopped putting out movies with any real depth anymore. The same with music, literature, art, all mediocrities, because the truth must be repressed.
The dark figure behind the curtain desperately wants to keep this whole scam going, and is doing everything in its power to prevent the reset.
The studio held Fight Club's world premiere at the 56th Venice International Film Festival in September 1999. For the American theatrical release, the studio hired the National Research Group to test screen the film; the group predicted the film would gross between $13 million and $15 million in its opening weekend. Fight Club opened commercially in the United States and Canada on October 15, 1999 and earned $11,035,485 in 1,963 theaters over the opening weekend. The film ranked first at the weekend box office, defeating Double Jeopardy and The Story of Us, a fellow weekend opener. The gender mix of audiences for Fight Club, argued to be "the ultimate anti-date flick", was 61% male and 39% female; 58% of audiences were below the age of 21. Despite the film's top placement, its opening gross fell short of the studio's expectations. Over the second weekend, Fight Club dropped 42.6% in revenue, earning $6,335,870. The film, whose production budget was $63 million, grossed $37 million from its theatrical run in the United States and Canada and earned $100.9 million in theaters worldwide. The underwhelming North American performance of Fight Club soured the relationship between 20th Century Fox's studio head Bill Mechanic and media executive Rupert Murdoch, which contributed to Mechanic's resignation in June 2000.
The British Board of Film Classification reviewed Fight Club for its November 12, 1999 release in the United Kingdom and removed two scenes involving "an indulgence in the excitement of beating a (defenseless) man's face into a pulp". The board assigned the film an 18 certificate, limiting the release to adult-only audiences in the UK. The BBFC did not censor any further, considering and dismissing claims that Fight Club contained "dangerously instructive information" and could "encourage anti-social (behavior)". The board decided, "The film as a whole is—quite clearly—critical and sharply parodic of the amateur fascism which in part it portrays. Its central theme of male machismo (and the anti-social behaviour that flows from it) is emphatically rejected by the central character in the concluding reels." The scenes were restored in a two-disc DVD edition released in the UK in March 2007.
@OP: resetting the debt will bring the total number of dollars in the system to $0. So if we reset the debt, how are we going to pay for future expenses?

You know what?
eff that! I'm done doing everything right if all I get to do is take it in the shorts. If there is no solution to be had here where I can avoid being made to suffer, then forget it. I don't want a solution. All I've been doing is being told I have to suffer more and more for the greater good, and I'm done with that.

What's the alternative through Aazadan, considering the current financial meltdown we are experiencing?
I think it's plain for the eye to see that any and all currencies backed by debt are doomed to failure from the word go because it's completely unsustainable!
Its a house of cards/pyramid scheme scenario and they know this i'm afraid!
