of unpayable future interest for
centuries to come.
There is a good reason why the people cannot understand these
things and that is because the financiers control every avenue of
publicity and, of course, will not permit them to learn how this
swindling game is perpetrated.
The financiers educate the people as they want them educated
from the day they are born until the day of their death.
The little children's minds are inoculated with the interest
swindle as soon as they begin to count and use the multiplication table.
They are taught interest, Discounts and Banking as part of their
education before their little brains are capable of knowing that they
are being taught to defraud one another out of what they will produce
through their own efforts.
The people as a rule do not realize what a terrible thing it
is until they get old and feeble and have their homes stolen from them
because they cannot pay the interest charges on loans or taxes. It is
then too late for them to do anything about it.
The Colleges are controlled by financiers because they donate
large sums to uphold these fraudulent methods. So the children step up
from public schools to higher grades and into universities where the
finishing touches are given to them to become first class polished
The financiers laugh at those innocents who graduate from
universities. They call them block-heads and have had square hats
invented for them to wear and have their pictures taken in so as to
prove to the world at large that they are their scholars.
The financiers have the practical newspaper owners in a bad
way for they have loaned them large sums of money with which to buy
up-to-date machinery and modern buildings, and these publishers are kept
in continual debt under the interest collection swindle so that
say nothing in their papers that will show up the interest and credit
system whereby the American people have been defrauded of most of their
wealth and will finally be defrauded of all of their wealth and future
The people should have a free press and no one wants a free
press more than the practical newspaper owners, editors and writers. But
the financiers have a strangling hold on their throats and unless
interest is abolished it is safe to say that within the next five or ten
years there won't be a newspaper or magazine published in the United
States that will not be owned by the financiers—yes, owned by those who
do nothing to produce the machinery, the buildings or the operating of
newspaper and magazine plants.
The Radio is owned and controlled by the financiers and is
used as a most poisonous weapon to degenerate the people. It turns
thinking beings into radio drunks.
What was to have been a blessing for humanity has been turned
into a curse by the swindlers who cheat the people out of their earnings
and then make them like it by the buffoonery that they carry right into
the homes and beds of their gullible victims.
It would be much better for the people to go on whiskey
drunks than to go on radio drunks. One can get over a whiskey drunk but
a radio drunk stays with you forever. It ruins all chances of a human
being ever using its reasoning faculties.
The function of reason is developed by proper thinking and as
one cannot think right without truth and as one seldom hears the truth
over the radio the mind gradually rots away under the pressure of
falsity and becomes absolutely useless forever afterwards for natural
One cannot expect to hear the truth from swindlers and as the
financiers own the radio the dupes who listen to their falsehoods are
