The American Revolution was fought over the Currency Act of 1764, imposed by King George III, which required the colonies to conduct their business exclusively with printed bank notes borrowed from the Bank of England at interest. The consequences of this act were so severe and detrimental to the colonists that it became a major catalyst for revolution. After Independence, the new United States adopted their own monetary system based on value rather than borrowing at interest from private banks such as the Bank of England.
Nearly one year after Mayer Amschel Rothschild’s famous declaration “Let me issue and control a nation’s money and I care not who makes the laws”, the bankers succeeded in setting up a new Private Central Bank called the First Bank of the United States. This momentous event was largely due to Alexander Hamilton, an ardent supporter of Rothschild’s banking empire.
This is but one chapter in our nation’s long story with private bankers, and if you’re interested in learning more about this fascinating history we highly recommend watching The Money Masters documentary. It offers a comprehensive analysis into how international banking dynasties have shaped modern economics and politics over centuries. As you watch, you’ll gain insight into how these financial institutions continue to dominate today – largely unseen and unchecked – as they use any means necessary to achieve their goals and consolidate power.
It is only through understanding our history that we can equip ourselves with knowledge to protect our economic freedom from forces that would seek to take advantage of us for monetary gain. We hope that The Money Masters documentary will inspire viewers to become educated about their own financial well-being and empower them to make informed decisions in order to prevent exploitation by private bankers in the future.
