Few Americans understand our banking system, the Federal Reserve and how the system was designed to plunder the poor and middle class for the exclusive benefit of the rich, the facists, the corporatists and the state by privatizing profits and subsidizing losses.

In other words, “capitalism” in America now means socializing losses and privatizing profits generated by State and Central Bank intervention. Imagine for a moment the “beauty” of this system for owners of private banks: in a truly socialized banking system, the taxpayers would absorb any losses, but the State would also benefit from any future bank-sector profits. In the U.S. system, the losses are socialized but the people draw no benefit; the profits flow to the top 1/10th of 1% private financiers.
