A Second Like At The Federal Reserve
By G Edward Griffin
The Creature from Jekyll Island, written by G. Edward Griffin in 1994 – has been a business bestseller; it has been reprinted in Japanese, 2005, and German, 2006. The book also influenced Ron Paul during the writing of a chapter on money and the Federal Reserve in Paul’s New York Times number-one bestseller, The Revolution: A Manifesto, which recommended Griffin’s book on its “Reading List for a Free and Prosperous America”.
G. Edward Griffin is an American film producer, author, and political lecturer. Starting as a child actor, he became a radio station manager before age 20. He then began a career of producing documentaries and books on often-debated topics like cancer, Noah’s ark, and the Federal Reserve, as well as on Libertarian views of the U.S. Supreme Court, terrorism, subversion, and foreign policy.
Since the 1970s, Griffin has promoted laetrile as a cancer treatment, a view considered quackery by the medical community. He has also promoted the Durupınar site as hosting the original Noah’s ark, against skeptics as well as near-Ararat Creationists. He has opposed the Federal Reserve since the 1960s, saying it constitutes a banking cartel and an instrument of war and totalitarianism.

A Personal Note:
Being a student of history, and possessing an inquisitive nature – I have often wondered how a once prosperous nation, which we call home, had allowed its citizens to become indebted to a selective and unscrupulous few… despite the image of well-being that has been projected by politicians and corporate media.
Also amazing is how our money supply, once “sound dollars” backed and redeemed by gold and silver – has become only “Federal Reserve Notes”, and fiat paper of questionable value.
There is an origin and a process at work here. A deminative trend has been put into place. Something is wrong, and has been so for quite some time. It would behoove us to understand what’s really at work.
It is also interesting to note that within three years after President Wilson had championed and signed into law, The Federal Reserve Act of 1913 – he was reported to have said:
I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the civilized world. No longer a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.
~ Woodrow Wilson
