I just got done watching the movie.

I think I'll have to watch it again before I can really say anything. My first impression is that there are a lot of things I agree with, there's a lot of things that intrigue and fascinate me, and then there are a few things that seem a little far-fetched toward the end.

Anyway, you must not have seen Tim the Beek's thread here: http://gatheringofth...ead.php?t=65721

there's where we will be discussing it officially :) we agreed this thread is for meta-discussion

While I have the link, Monopoly Men (Federal Reserve Fraud) (1999).



During the Wilson presidency, the U.S. government sanctions the creation of the Federal Reserve. Thought by many to be a government organization maintained to provide financial accountability in the event of a domestic depression, the actual business of the Fed is shrouded in secrecy.

This is a good introduction to understanding the perceived conspiracy of central banking. The parts that regard a new world order are theoretical with some research backing that gives the idea some credibility. It is however, not possible to solidify the allegations.

What is true, is that the United States has been fighting against the invasion of european central bankers since the countries inception. We've fought wars over trying to expel these crooks from the land.

Since 1913, these crooks have won the fight.

The part where Milton Freidman accuses the fed of allowing the great depression is only part of it. At the time, the gold bullion ordeal was in swing. Pumping the cash into the banking industry at the time would have meant the theft of the gold would be stalled or could be completely jeopardized.

Now that they have the gold, the fiat shit ticket policies of inflation upon inflation upon inflation, is really the laughter of the crooks watching our riches be stolen by the same men that stole the real specie of money - the gold.

It's the golden rule.

TEO, you're next on the list. I'd say go ahead and post your doc. choice tomorrow (Sunday may be a better day to post so people can view on the weekend)

Keep thread title similar to the one Tim used for documentary number 1

For my week, I think I'd like to watch Guns, Germs, and Steel...

BUT, It's broken up into 3 parts on Netflix that I think are 45 minutes long each.

I see it on youtube broken up into 18 parts.

Sooo... not sure if it will be a problem or not... I'll pick another one if nobody is interested... I really liked it though.

It would be taking a break from the current Fed problems and going back to the beginning of civilization.
