Something a little different from the usual outrages this site chooses to spotlight in the news cycle. Consider it a primer in ‘adult history’ – expanding on the sanitized history of nation-states you were taught in school. This is a must read, in it’s entirety. Kudos to ‘TocqueDeville’ for the investigative journalism.

So what if I told you that the powers of financial capitalism (bankers etc.), had a far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands, able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. [Ed. Note: He is not talking about freemarket Capitalism here - free trade between consenting individuals in a system where individual rights are respected - this is an older system, the "Ancien Regime", in which the state and the economic sector are one and the same. Mussolini called it Corporativism or Fascism. With that caveat, I cede the floor.]
This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences. The apex of the system was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basle, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world’s central banks which were themselves private corporations?
And what if I told you they had succeeded?
Wow! The most powerful bankers creating a world system of financial control, dominating the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole, with secret meetings. Surely you would think Tocque has fallen under the spell of a wild conspiracy theory.
But you can put away the cat in the tinfoil hat. Those are not my words. And it’s not a theory. They are the words of one of the greatest, most eminent historians in modern times, the late Carroll Quigley – of Harvard, Princeton and the Georgetown Foreign School.
