In response to the Fed allegations...
How do we know who owns the Fed? Also, how do we know it's privatized nature isn't beneficial to the system and its stability (perhaps privatized to
keep it independent of political manipulations)?
I've read hypothetical statements over the years that the Fed is probably owned by the Queen of England, the Rockerfellers, Chase, Queen of
Netherlands, and Rothchilds... but these seem very much like "easy" names to throw out there and see if one sticks. So far, I have not seen any hard
evidence (though speculation makes great science fiction and entertaining gossip). Hearsay claims do not reason make. If you know of any hard
evidence, I'd be happy to read, learn, and evaluate.
On the very slight chance that such high-profile and incredibly powerful names are owners of the Fed, then is that necessarily a bad thing? Just like
a President's cabinet is made up of the best men and women for each field of expertise, there is a strong argument that having the world's richest
and most powerful managing the stability of USA currency would be a beneficial thing.
Of course, the fallen nature of mankind makes any utopic/beneficial/perfect setup pretty much impossible. But perhaps, it's the best we can get -- or
was the best we could get in the 1920s. Basically, without proof that the owners are specific people who have done specific evil-doings (beyond a
slight degree of self-interest), I have to assume the power structure is overall beneficial.
I'm sure quite a few people on ATS will have great feedback.
