A discussion about this quote on wikiquotes lead me to a copy of the 1913 book by Wilson entitled "The New Freedom" which is probably a better source for what Wilson was really willing to say in public about the whole situation. I found a free copy of it at Project Gutenberg.
Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men's views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of somebody, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.

What is even worse is in one hundred year there have been only SIX MEN who have tried to do anything about the Federal Reserve.
Congressman Charles A. Lindbergh - The plates of his books were destroyed by Federal agents and his grandbaby kidnapped and killed. (His son tried to run for President despite being warned off)
Congressman Louis T. McFadden - he was shot at twice and then poisoned.
Justice Martin Mahoney - he died less than six months after defying the Morgan Bankers in a "mysterious accident" that appeared to involve poisoning.
Congressman Wright Patman - He got with the program and supported FDR's New Deal and escaped "Punishment" (FDR was controlled by the International bankers. - Franklin Delano ROOSEVELT My Exploited Father-in-Law )
Congressman Henry Gonzalez _ He also climbed on the "Progressive bandwagon" and escaped retaliation.edit on 25-8-2011 by crimvelvet because: fumble fingers

he was potus he had every chance to not do it and he did anyway.
i have no sympthay for the man he knew!
with regards to the federal reserve act and the 63rd congress he was in the party who control both the house and senate and the potus.
there were any number of chances and ways to kill the federal reserve act and they didnt.
he can blame himself all he wants and thats great but the blame for it all goes to the majority in the house senate and potus.

I wish we knew the identities of the few dominant men he was talking about in his speech.edit on 25-8-2011 by theshepherd2 because: (no reason given)
The first two sentences appear to be complete fabrications. The rest of it is actually two separate quotes that are slightly altered and taken out of context. He is actually referring to monopolies. Source: The New Freedom
