Today’s Quote

“Our great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is privately concentrated.  The growth of our nation, therefore, and all of our activities are in the hands of a few men…who necessarily, by very reason of their limitations, chill and check and destroy economic freedom.

We have become one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled governments in the civilized world – no government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and the duress of small groups of dominant men.” – Woodrow Wilson

“Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.” – Albert Einstein

“Absolute certainty is a privilege of uneducated minds and fanatics.” – C.J. Keyser

“The world we live in: Just look at us. Everything is backwards. Everything is upside down. Doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, universities destroy knowledge, governments destroy freedom, the major media destroy information, and religion destroys spirituality.” – Michael Ellner
