Here's part of Francisco's money speech. It's what is happening right now in America with the Federal Reserve
"Then you will see the rise of the men of the double standard--the men who live by force, yet count on those who live by trade to create the value of
their looted money--the men who are the hitchhikers of virtue. In a moral society, these are the criminals, and the statutes are written to protect
you against them. But when a society establishes criminals-by-right and looters-by-law--men who use force to seize the wealth of disarmed
victims--then money becomes its creators' avenger. Such looters believe it safe to rob defenseless men, once they've passed a law to disarm them.
But their loot becomes the magnet for other looters, who get it from them as they got it. Then the race goes, not to the ablest at production, but to
those most ruthless at brutality. When force is the standard, the murderer wins over the pickpocket. And then that society vanishes, in a spread of
ruins and slaughter.
"Do you wish to know whether that day is coming? Watch money. Money is the barometer of a society's virtue. When you see that trading is done, not
by consent, but by compulsion--when you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing--when you see that
money is flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors--when you see that men get richer by graft and by pull than by work, and your laws
don't protect you against them, but protect them against you--when you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice--you may
know that your society is doomed. Money is so noble a medium that is does not compete with guns and it does not make terms with brutality. It will not
permit a country to survive as half-property, half-loot.
"Whenever destroyers appear among men, they start by destroying money, for money is men's protection and the base of a moral existence. Destroyers
seize gold and leave to its owners a counterfeit pile of paper. This kills all objective standards and delivers men into the arbitrary power of an
arbitrary setter of values. Gold was an objective value, an equivalent of wealth produced. Paper is a mortgage on wealth that does not exist, backed
by a gun aimed at those who are expected to produce it. Paper is a check drawn by legal looters upon an account which is not theirs: upon the virtue
of the victims. Watch for the day when it bounces, marked, 'Account overdrawn.'
