Have you ever heard of the Franc CFA's currency system?

Franc CFA’s currency system
Main currency for 14 West and Central African countries.

Imagine that you pay everyday with your banknotes. Imagine that…

- Your banknotes were printed in the country that colonized your country

- This colonizing country keeps 65 % of international reserves in its central bank

- Your country has to pay interests if they want to withdraw money from these 65 %.

Well this is what is happening right now. Franc CFA is printed at Chamalières, France. Banque de France owns 65 % of international reserves from these countries, and make them pay for each withdrawal. This system was one of the conditions from France to grant these fourteen countries independence, back in 1960.

Not surprising that the richest country from these 14, ranks at 148th in term of GDP/capita parity purchase power.

They literally steal money of the poor and desperate, yet they always talk about human rights and how they care about humanity. Disgusting.

Why am I sharing this? Because I'm certain the vast majority never even heard of this, well now you have.

Think that is bad, imagine what happens to the first president of the US that wants/wanted out of the centralized banking system.

Nothing new.

Destabilization of countries to keep them subdued and dependant of western aid.

All whilst the recourse of the said country are directly upholding these small colonial counties.

Doesn't help the mindset of how westerners perceive these people either when they're still stuck in mudhuts and have near to no education. Which also then creates the idea that without the theft of recourse and puppet politicians back by western society, the country would go back 1000 years.

Hence why pricks still support KKK and other white supremacist groups. Because they truly believe the white man is superior but don't know the real economic reason as to why the western world is more advanced.

I apologise for going on a tangent, the websites narritive is hard to break away from.
