Great post Base 1 - What's really funny is that in 2008, during

...during the collapse, the FDIC (which couldn't cover even $100,000 per institution as it was at the time) raised the level to $250,000 per institution!!!

This was done to make the people BELIEVE their deposits were covered and so the withdrawals were halted.

It's like making a tight rope walker BELIEVE there's a net under him (when there isn't) in order to get him to walk the tight rope in the first place.

A trick of the mind you might say. This is exactly what the FDIC does to keep depositors believing there is a safety net in the event of a major financial collapse of banking institutions, leading to mass withdrawals of savings as this video proved.

It also exposes the immoralaty of fractinal reserve banking.
