It is hard to think of an event that would transform social life as profoundly and rapidly as the emancipation of societies from the constraints of debt.

Switzerland Follows Iceland in Declaring War Against the Banksters By Isaac Davis “If you want to continue to be slaves of the banks and pay the cost of your own slavery, then let bankers continue to create money and control credit.” – Josiah Stamp Iceland has gained the admiration of populists in recent years by doing that which no other nation in the world seems to be willing or capable of doing: prosecuting criminal bankers for engineering financial collapse for profit.
