The Federal Reserve Act of 1913 created a banking cartel.

Congress guarantees members 6% profit per year after expenses. Congress makes up the loss, it's called a bailout.

Reserve members spare no expenses, they have the best real estate and the best paid executives and staff. They expense million in Public Relations labor.

Any profit over 6% goes to the US Treasury. Members tell Congress who to smash to maximize revenues to the treasury.

CBS, member of the Federal Reserve, says we would make more profits if Gibson didn't steal our business. Bam. Gibson Guitar raided.

The Comptroller of the Currency keeps the record of members and their paid in reserve.

Here are the guidelines for American Fascism.

Thank you

It's also helpful to understand in another way. The situation where the guy without the bag has the gun, is an ephemeral one.* Occasionally the guy without the bag will get the gun, but soon enough he is just the new guy with the bag and the gun.

So the socialism graphic and the fascism graphic could as well be labeled 'before' and 'after'. Of course in each transition liberty is reduced and thus wealth is reduced, and we live in the after situation, because the before situation is transitory.

* Except where fascist states like the US prop up socialist ones so there is an 'enemy'/'threat' to point to like Cuba, North Korea, or the USSR. If you do not believe we propped up the USSR you are in for some hard history lessons.

The typical way we prop up regimes is through economic sanctions which rally the populace to the regime, and gives the regime in turn an external enemy to blame all the woes of the people upon. We do this now of course with 'terror states', like Iran, whose populace would surely revolt if the government didn't have a very real external threat, the west, to point to as enemy.

A copy is now on my refrigerator.

It's a powerful argument, nicely distilled. What you see is what you get.
