How We Were Enslaved By the Money Power

dees money power
Dear Sir,
In a previously published letter I stated that I was no conspiracy theorists. However, the more I investigate some of their claims, one of which is that we are close to world domination by a few people through financial incarceration, or embroiling people or nations in the grip of debt, the less sceptical I become.
In 1865 a certain Rabbi by the name of Reichorn made a speech in Prague. This little known document was published eleven years later by Sir John Radcliff. That certain people were very alarmed by this publication is well seen by two things. First, Radcliff was assassinated shortly afterwards and second it is quite impossible to procure a copy of this document anymore.
Here are some of the principle passages:
“Gold in the hands of experts will always be the most useful weapon for those who possess it and the object of envy of those who are without it.”
“With gold one can buy the most upright consciences and we can fix the value of every stock the price of every merchandise, one can lend it to states that afterwards one holds at ones mercy.”
“The other great power is the press. By ceaselessly repeating certain ideas, the press in the end makes them considered as truths. By an indefatigable campaign in favour of the Democratic form of government, we shall divide the Gentiles among themselves in political parties, we shall thus destroy the unity of their nations, they will have to accept the law of our bank, always united, always devoted to our cause.”
“We will push the Christians into wars, by a judicious exploitation of their pride and stupidity. They will massacre each other and thus make more space where we can place our own people.”
“Let us use all our force to replace the circulation of gold by that of paper: our banks will absorb the gold and we shall decide then what value the paper money will have, this will make us masters of every man’s existence.”
Unless I’m completely naive, I think that even the most ardent sceptic would grudgingly concede, that the ideas Reichorn advocated a hundred and fifty years ago, have been carried out to this very day. In short the average person has unwittingly allowed themselves to become subtle slaves to the money power.


Yours Sincerely Thomas Paine
