The parasite is a group of people who gain economic control of countries through mainly financial means. They are the international bankers.
At this moment IMHO they control the majority of central banks in the world.
More info you can find in these movies:

In Basel, I noticed that there are two BIS-buildings, about a kilometer from eachother. The 'Botta'-building at the Aeschenplatz is a former UBS-bank. It has a door with the ABN-Amro-bank next door, very strange. ABN-Amro has a indoor connection with BIS, I saw it with my own two eyes!

Cheers Orangetom. I not been quoted as being really dumb before!!
1 thing off my list of things to do before I die.
although, I do not understand why it is dumb!! maybe that proves I am dumb?!?!
If you go back far enough, to the time before monies and wealth, it was not needed. Since it has been created it has been but the downfall and control of man, feeding power and greed.
In the perfect society no one would need money as everything would be equally shared between the people, yes, a utopian dream, but still, true nonetheless.
So what is so dumb in that opinion??

I understand your arguments perfectly well.. and with regard to inflation being a kind of stealth tax caused by running such a large deficit, I fully agree.
However, I would say it's not the concept of monetarism itself that's flawed. The problem is that if the money supply is increased faster than the rate of economic growth then inflation results.
Like I say, I understand your arguments.. what I would like to know though is what system you would propose to replace it?
Are you saying monetarism is OK, but the issuance of money should be in the hands of the government rather than the Fed.
Or are you saying the monetarist model is wrong and we should be using a "hard-backed" currency, such as we had under the gold standard?
IF the latter is the case, how would one cope with a growing population and economy? If new money couldn't be "created", wouldn't it become more and more scarce as more people demand it?
edit : I'd like to draw people's attention to this webcast from Berkeley UC's Macro-economics course, Fiscal and Monetary Policy in the Long Run. It covers a few of these issues. Over the coming weeks of the semester, further lectures will be going into money supply and inflation more deeply... worth watching for anyone interested....
..and hopefully it will dispel the myth that this sort of thing isn't taught in public schools!

And yes, money is the paradox of this web and it should have never been invented.
For the sake of a peaceful and pure natural reality the ritual will have to come to an end and before it does we will experience some pain and suffering but in the end it's all good.

Like I said earlier I'm more concerned about the ideology behind the fed and why it's not "in house".
You still have not really tried to answer those questions.
You just tell us that it's up to Americans to 'decide' what is the better 'system' and throw financial reports and audits in our face.

How do you propose we solve this problem?
What system should replace the current one to get rid of this parasite?
How, exactly, precisely do you implement this plan if you have one in mind?
Do we attack the perceived enemy and take their wealth by force?
If we succeed in stopping these parasites, don't we become them?
Won't another parasite just take their place if we get rid of this batch?
yeah, pesky facts eh? Surely one of the premises fo this thread is that the the truth isn't taught in schools, and that the Fed is un-audite
Do you beleive there should be a fixed supply of money in the economy, as there would be if all money had to be backed by a finite substance like gold? A yes or no is all that is required!
