What if their end game is not control of the monetary system, but the destruction of the monetary system?
Could it be they are purposely building a house of cards that is so unstable that it would cause worldwide collapse?
That would be a good time for them to bring in a global credit/debit system, RFID chip and eliminate money entirely, so they can monitor and control every transaction on the planet.
This explains Bernanke's blank stares and lack of admissions during the many showdowns with Ron Paul. He's playing stupid.
He knows Ron Paul is right, but that's the plan. They WANT to bring the whole economic system down. They want people begging them to put in the new system.
I could easily see them arguing that tracking all transactions will save lives and reduce terrorism.
