The Creature from Jekyll Island : A Second Look at the Federal Reserve by G. Edward Griffin
Those who move in patriot circles have likely seen and heard G. Edward Griffin at various times and places talking about the Federal Reserve System, but not everyone has read though his magnum opus in its entirety. It is a truly valuable educational experience. With all the ideas and conspiracy theories floating around, it can sometimes be a mystery who is really pulling the strings of power in America and the world today. “The Creature from Jekyll Island” distills the modern history of finance into a very readable and enlightening story, which clarifies everything in layman's terms, and shines a spotlight on the man behind the curtain.
There has never been so relevant a time as now, to read this entire book, and to come to understand how the economy of America and the world came to be where it is today.
Everything we are seeing all around us, with the economic turmoil, and endless banker bailouts being foisted on the taxpaying public, is no accident of circumstance. The system is working exactly how it was designed to function way back in 1913. The boom and bust of the business cycle, the looming threats of inflation or deflation, unemployment, foreclosure, bankruptcy, and everything else related to the money supply is swirling in perfect rhythm around the vortex of evil that is the Federal Reserve System.
This insatiable black hole of deception and greed has swallowed every natural thing that Americans held dear, including freedom itself. It is the root of all evil, slavery, depression, war, and bloodshed, that has enveloped America for the past 100 years, from World Wars I and II, to even the Bolshevik Revolution.
The subject matter of the book is too deep and extensive to review here, but if you think you can handle the truth, and you really want to know what has brought us to where we are today, as well as the direction we are headed, this book takes you there.
